Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg are one of the best Hip-Hop friendships of all time. Dre hit Instagram over the weekend to highlight a message he received from the Hip-Hop legend.

“Thank you to everyone for sending me so much positive energy,” Dre wrote in the caption. “I’d like to share this inspirational message from my brother [Snoop].”

“Ever since I was fuckin’ with you, before I was fuckin’ with you, you could always take pain, anger, frustration—anything that was negative and you could get something positive out of it,” Snoop said. “That’s why you the doctor.”

“They say Snoop Dogg is an icon, he’s a God, he’s a king, but there’s one nigga to honor, and that’s you. So you get your shit right and focus on being great. Take all that negative energy, all that shit that you dealing with—the death, the fucking lawsuits, all that shit—put it all in your mind and your spirit and make something magical, nigga.”

Kodak Black Responds to the Viral Video of Him Groping His Mother

Kodak Black

Kodak Black took to his Instagram live this Saturday to address a video that has been circulating the Internet. This video shows Kodak grabbing on his mother in a sexual manner. Kodak Black starts the live video by saying his father left him at a young age and his mom continued taking care of the family.

“When I see my mama, homie, I adore her, homie,” Kodak said. “I kiss her feet, homie, what you talkin’ bout boy… Some of you n***as don’t even holla at your mama. Some of you n***as don’t even call your mama, homie. Some of you n***as don’t even spend time with your mama, homie.”

His Instagram live rant continues with him asking fans, how they’d expect to “love a b***h” if they don’t love their own mothers. 

“She ain’t trippin’. I don’t give a f**k what you talkin’ bout, n***a,” Kodak yells into his phone. “I grabbed my mama because I treat my mama like my lady, n***a. That’s my queen, n***a.”

Kodak goes on to say that nothing beyond butt-touching happened with his mother and his intention is to make his mother feel “real beautiful.” “I don’t f**k my mama, we ain’t doin’ no crazy shit,” Kodak explained on the live. “I grab her like I make her feel real beautiful. I remind my mama, “You beautiful, I’m f****d up bout you ma, I’m in love with you.” He then goes on to speak on people discussing the video instead of him “being in good spirits,” following recent concerning tweets made by the rapper. According to Complex Kodak Black recently posted some suicidal tweets and his decision to delete social media. The rapper later revamped his Instagram account after the incident saying he’s “got a great support system” and is “surrounded By love,” but “somebody put a false rumor in my head that drove me to the edge that I can’t say but all in all I’m ok.”

Wale Drops by Apple Music to Discuss ‘Folarin II’ and His Evolution

Wale Rolling Loud Photo: emilygardner_@emilygardnerx_

Wale’s Folarin II is officially out wherever you decide to grab music and is proving to be one of the best projects of the year. After its release, Wale hit Rap Life Radio with Nadeska on Apple Music 1 and provided some details to the album.

Folarin, the mixtape, was released nearly a decade ago. Now, Wale believes the time for the sequel is right on time.

“Because it feels like I’m just, it’s a different sound of Folarin 1, but I feel like a little bit how I felt back then,” Wale said. “The hunger is there, you know what I’m saying. I mean, and I never wasn’t hungry, but I’m just saying it’s just hitting a little different now. I’m saying a lot of things with my chest out and I think you can hear in the way that I’m delivering some of the raps, I’m just talking to you. I’m not rapping at nobody, I’m just really talking to you, the listener.”

He also would go on to discuss his evolution as an artist.

“We evolve. We’re constantly evolving. Not to sound all like… But we just constantly evolve and if you really care about your craft, it’s going to constantly evolve. You’re going to constantly become a bigger critic of yourself and I think that whole idea manifests itself on this project. He’s in another form, you know what I mean. He’s leveled up, mentally, skill wise, storytelling wise, confidence on the microphone. That’s all there. You can see, you can hear it.”

You can hear Wale talk about the album, working with Chris Brown, J. Cole, and more on the full episode here.

Big Sean Covers Himself in More than 65,000 Bees for Music Video

Big Sean

Big Sean is creating buzz around his upcoming single- literally! The artist covered himself in over 65,000 live bees for his music video for his single ‘What A Life.’

On October 23, Big Sean posted a picture of him covered with bees on Instagram with the following caption: WHAT A LIFE OUT NOW! Video out now!!! In the song I said 100 B’s, but it was really 65,000 🐝’s on me. this not photoshopped neither. I HAD 65,000 Bee’s on me… love to the 🐝 hive. I just ain’t want y’all to think it was some damn effects or some s*** 😂 WHAT A LIFE VIDEO TOMORROW @ noon! Song out now!!! (Link in bio)

The bees are relevant to the song lyrics “Go ahead then, tell me what your price is, mine’s is a hundred Bs, n****, you can’t swipe this.”

In addition to being covered with bees, the ‘What a Life’ video shows Big Sean in a variety of scenes, each reportedly inspired by a time in his life. on an area of his life. The rapper floats above the Detroit city skyline, gets chased by a hoard of brides (who are later seen holding what appear to be ARs), works as a teacher, football coach, and personal trainer, and carries a stack of money like a boombox on his shoulder.

Boosie Badazz Goes on Homophobic Twitter Rant Aimed at Lil Nas X

boosie getty images.0 750x400 1

Lil Nas X took to his Instagram live to tell his fans about a collaboration with Boosie Badazz, whose reaction was not kind at all. 

[Editor’s note: The article below, which quotes Boosie Badazz’s comments directed at Lil Nas X, contains potentially distressing language about suicide.]

The controversial rapper said to his fans, “I been working on this song with Lil Boosie, bro. I have this song with Lil Boosie, gonna come out.” This live recording began circulating on the internet and everyone took it as Lil Nas X “Trolling” again. Boosie Badazz took the joke differently, going on a homophobic Twitter rant suggesting the “Old Town Road” rapper commit suicide.

“STOP TROLLING ME F—– LOL!! U A WHOLE B—- PLAYING WITH A GANGSTA SMH U CAN KEEP SUCKING D— N GETTIN F—ED N YOUR A– N PEACE N #uhateyourself I WOULD TOO IF I WAS YOU LOL NASx IF YOU #commitsuicide YOU WOULD DO THIS WORLD A HUGE FAVOR NOBODY WANTS U HERE,” Badazz tweeted.

The Tweet has since been deleted for violating Twitter’s terms of service. Lil Nas X, who was recently honored as The Trevor Project’s Suicide Prevention Advocate of the Year, was yet to respond to Boosie Badazz. Now trending on Twitter because of Boosie’s hateful comments, Lil Nas X instead used his platform to tweet, “i am truly saddened. i have never been so mortified in my life. i can’t believe disney channel has yet to play halloween town this entire october.”

“Discrimination around sexuality and gender identity is still very real, and our community deserves to feel supported and totally free to be themselves,” Lil Nas X told listeners back in September when he was honored by the Trevor Project, which provides suicide prevention resources for LGBTQ+ youth and crisis interventions. “I often get messages from fans telling me about their struggles with depression and suicidal thoughts, and it made me realize that this was something bigger than myself. If using my voice and expressing myself in my music can help even one kid out there who feels alone, then it was all worth it.”

Boosie Badazz is known for speaking negatively about Lil Nas X several times over the past few months. In September, Lil Nas X stated the comments did not have any effect on him.

“I was listening to Boosie in the club the other day. I don’t really care. Honestly, I wish they didn’t say it, I guess,” Lil Nas said of the “Wipe Me Down” rapper during an appearance on The Breakfast Club. “But I like the music, I’m gonna listen to the music. If somebody got beef with me, that doesn’t mean I got beef with them.”

When asked if he would respond to the hateful messages, Lil Nas X stated, “Only if I have something really witty.”

Lil Nas X seems unbothered by the constant remarks made by Boosie Badazz on social media. Boosie, on the other hand, had his Instagram removed several times this year. At the beginning of October, he was removed from upcoming tour dates following an onstage brawl, and the rapper spent a day in jail as a result.
