Offset Signs Deal With Streaming Platform Caffeine

Earlier this week, Offset had announced that he had signed a deal with the streaming platform, Caffeine. This deal includes the Migos rapper making two video game-centric shows.

For those that have no clue what Caffeine is, Caffeine is a streaming platform dedicated to gaming. It’s designed as a hybrid of other gaming streaming platforms like Twitch and Mixer. The service is backed by 20th Century Fox which invested $100 million into the service last year and sought to bring live music and sports to the platform.

In an effort to get a leg up on its competition, Caffeine signed Offset to create some of their content.

The first show would launch on October 27, at 6 pm PDT and will feature Offset playing some of his favorite video games and taking suggestions from his fans about what other video games he should check out. The second show is titled Bet with Set which will feature Offset battling celebrity guests in different games.   

In an interview with CNN Business, Offset stated that the future of gaming “is going to be bigger than, it’s coming for entertainment. It’s going to be like hip hop or pop, but it’s going to be gaming, esports.”

Earlier this year, Offset also invested in the popular e-sports group, FaZe Clan.

Offset sees the vision when it comes to gaming and esports. Already invested in the popular esports team and lifestyle organization FaZe Clan, he is now adding streamer to his growing list of accomplishments.

Today (Oct.24), broadcast network Caffeine announced an exclusive streaming partnership with The Migos founding member. Starting Sunday, October 27 at 6 PM PDT, the avid gamer will launch one of his two new shows where he will be playing games like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and try new games suggested by fans.

The second show, Bet With The Set, will feature the “Clout” rapper taking on celebrity guests in high-stakes gamin battles “with unpredictable and fun outcomes that change from week to week.” They will also bet on the outcomes of matchups with the losers having to complete a dare issued by the victor.

Speaking on his new partnership with Caffeine, Offset added:

“With Caffeine, I can create my content in an organic way that lets me make real connections with my community. They have created new technology that takes the lag out of online interactions, and it makes me reachable in a way that other platforms simply can’t. Caffeine allows me to be myself, so I’m trying to reach these kids to show them that everybody is a part of a team, and we’re all one.”

Offset is not the only big name attached to Caffeine, other creators include The Game who has his own show call Game Time, LeBron James, Heard Well and LaMelo Ball. The world of gaming and entertainment intersects, and Caffeine is giving Hip-Hop artists, athletes, and gamers the platform to get in on the action. Founder and CEO of Caffeine Ben Keighran spoke on giving them a better way to create content for their fans stating:

“Caffeine is attracting gamers, athletes, and entertainers to our platform because we offer a better way to create interactive, live content. We’re excited to welcome Offset and his fans to our growing community.”

Quavo Adds Pitcher To Resume After Throwing Out 1st Pitch At Braves Game

Divisional Series - St Louis Cardinals v Atlanta Braves - Game Two

Source: Todd Kirkland / Getty

One-third of the hit-making group Migos, Quavo, checked another major milestone off of his bucket list after being tapped to throw out the game-opening pitch for his hometown team.

According to sports news, Quavo threw out the first ceremonial pitch before game two of the National League Division Series matchup between the Atlanta Braves and St. Louis Cardinals on Friday (Oct. 4). The special occasion featured the “Pure Water” artist donning a custom made Braves jersey that featured him rocking the number 91, for his birth year, and bolstered his nickname “Huncho” on the back.

Before the start of the game, Fox Sports tweeted out a video of Quavo practicing his perfect pitch behind an old building, landing a near-perfect strike to the catcher.

While on the field, Quavo kept that same energy throwing southpaw as the announcer asked candidly, “Let’s see what you got, Quavo.”

In other Migos news, the trio received good news last week after a judge ruled that a company’s 2015 agreement to market apparel for hip-hop group did not give it a right to capitalize on the Migos name in light of the group’s recent success.

According to Law.com, Justice O. Peter Sherwood knocked out key claims in a lawsuit by Rocawear co-founder Norton Cher’s YRN LLC, which sued the Georgia-based trio and Migos LLC for breach of contract in May 2018.

According to the complaint, the firm acquired the trademarks to “Y.R.N.” and “Yung Rich Nation” in March 2015, with the goal of marketing clothing and accessories associated with Migo’s then-forthcoming single and album by the same names. The suit alleged that the performers, Quavious Marshall, Kiari Cephus and Kirshnik Ball, and managers Jerel Nance and Pierre Thomas had agreed not to compete with the company by marketing apparel with the Migos name.

It was an “incontrovertible fact,” Judge Sherwood said, noting that the company never had any right to the Migos name, and by the time Migos had paired up with Bravado, any need for the contract’s restrictions was gone.

“There simply was no market left to cannibalize.” Sherwood wrote in an 11-page opinion dated Sept. 12. “The market for apparel bearing the name of a faded Migos song or album was gone and the restrictive covenants in [the contract] no longer made commercial success.”

The ruling was handed down in September, although it was just announced this week.

Rolling Loud Takes Over the Bay Area with Migos, Future and More

Rolling Loud Bay Area 2019 went down over the weekend and was headlined by Future and G-Eazy on Saturday and Migos closing out on Sunday. The festival brought out 40,000 fans and was the 3rd edition of the Bay Area festival.

Saturday also brought YG to a home-state crowd, celebrating Nipsey Hussle’s life, bringing out his bae Kehlani on stage and making sure his “Stop Snitchin’” single received the proper 6ix9ine treatment.

Additional artists hitting the stage included Megan Thee Stallion who brought Hot Girl Summer to a close on the stage. SOB X RBE held it down for their home of the Bay and brought in some L.A. flavor in their guest Shoreline Mafia.

The first day was capped with G-Eazy bringing out ALLBLACK and P-Lo, before Future hit the stage to let off a run of hits that have nearly lasted a decade.

Day two saw Rico Nasty take a plunge into the crowd and DaBaby interact with fans and receive some new bling designed by Johnny Dang.

Lil Uzi Vert was joined onstage by Young Thug, who also returned to the stage during Juice WRLD’s set. Trippie Redd and Ski Mask the Slump God.

Migos then closed out the festival with Quavo in a Margiela hoodie as the crew ran through every hit they have created over the last half-decade.

Birthday Blunder: Lil Wayne Ordered to Pay $150K USD in Concert Fraud Suit

While we’re sure Lil Wayne is having an amazing 37th birthday today, it must suck to find out you have to shell out six figures in a lawsuit on what’s supposed to be the best day of your year.



The “6 Foot 7 Foot” rap king seemed to be living large at Lil WeezyAna Fest based off the IG post seen above, but it seems like not all the shows on his recent tour were lit, or even legit to begin with. According to TMZ, Weezy was ordered to cough up $150,000 USD to an investor by the name of Ramin Natan following a lawsuit from earlier this year. Suing for breach of contract and fraud, Natan claims both Lil Wayne and Migos created fake companies to book concerts they never intended to attend and/or perform at. Natan apparently loaned $500,000 USD to a person named “Eric Stenger” with the intent that he would promote Weezy shows. Stenger apparently was never a concert promoter, and worked with Wayne to pocket the cash and, well, dip out! Legal docs show that Lil Wayne was actually served with the suit, but since he failed to respond the judge issued a default judgment in favor of Ramin Natan.

No word on if Lil Wayne will take this one on the chin or, since the courts usually give defendants one last chance to respond, will actually fight it. We’ll keep you updated on the situation. Happy birthday though, Weezy!

DaBaby Steps Into Big Boy’s Neighborhood To Talk ‘Kirk’, Da Baby Jesus & Why He Doesn’t “Do Ugly”

2019 Made In America - Day 2

Source: Lisa Lake / Getty

Rapper DaBaby has undoubtedly taken Hip-Hop by storm, so when the charismatic and at times comedic MC stopped by Big Boy’s Neighborhood, you know it had to be pure comedy.

During the interview, DaBaby explained that his moniker was originally Da Baby Jesus, but he decided to change it early in his career to avoid offending fans.

“My name was originally Da Baby Jesus, but I changed it like two years into my career because I didn’t want to offend anyone; although I feel like my purpose in the game is related and still is, I didn’t want my name to be a distraction from the music.”

DaBaby also revealed his motivation comes from topping himself not worrying about the charts.

“It’s always different for me, because if it’s not different then I am no longer interested. I am the type where I don’t worry about anything else but how to top what I did yesterday. My main goal is to top what I did before.”

The North Carolina MC also talks about how his outlook on himself has changed since he’s gotten into the Rap game.

“I used to think I was ugly because I was the baby,” DaBaby said chuckling. “I don’t play the ugly game, I think everyone is beautiful and I see it in me now more and more.”

In other DaBaby news, fans are rejoicing after the tracklist for ‘Kirk’ was released. Since his original Instagram post announcing the album, and the release of his video for the lead single, “Intro”; the tracklisting for the highly anticipated has been released, revealing collaborations with Moneybagg Yo, Gucci Mane, Migos, and Nicki Minaj.

DaBaby – Kirk (Tracklist)

1. Intro
2. Off The Rip
3. Bop
4. Vibez
5. Pop Star (feat. Kevin Gates)
6. Gospel (feat. Chance the Rapper, Gucci Mane & YK Osiris)

8. Toes (feat. Lil Baby & Moneybagg Yo)
9. Really (feat. Stunna 4 Vegas)
10. Prolly Heard
11. Raw S**t (feat. Migos)
12. There He Go

No word if this tracklisting is official, but the excitement is definitely mounting as fans prepare for the sophomore release.

Offset Knows His Kicks, Drops $31K Sneaker Shopping with Complex [Video]

Offset Sneaker Shopping

Source: Complex / Complex

Offset is a legit sneakerhead. The Migos rapper effortlessly rattled off his favorite kicks by name while discussing his collection and dropping over $31K—mostly on SB Dunks and Air Jordan Retros—while Sneaker Shopping with Complex

A gregarious Offset also excitedly discussed some of his prized items including a pair of Macklemore Air Jordan 6’s from a collection that he values at at least $1M.

“So I did a song with him called ‘Willy Wonka,’ recorded it at his home,” said Offset of the Macklemore blessing. “I came to the crib, we were shooting hoops. He brought them out to me like, ‘I appreciate you. This record’s going good. My brother. Great friendship.’ And he gave me those. In my head I wanted to go crazy and run around, but I played it cool, but I knew that was like a 25 grand shoe.”

In total Offset bought 27 pairs while at Flight Club in LA and it was nothing but heat with joints like the Doernbecher “Superman” IVs and the Air Jordan IV Georgetown PE’s that were a smooth $7,600.

Must be nice. Peep the episode below.
