Eminem ft. Jessie Reyez “Good Guy,” Gucci Mane “Off The Boat” & More | Daily Visuals 12.7.18

Gucci Mane El Gato Release Party 21

Source: Prince WIlliams / Prince Williams/ATLPics.net

Even after all these years Eminem just can’t seem to get the whole “love” thing right. Least not in his videos anyway.

Continuing to demonstrate that love hurts, in his visual to “Good Guy,” Em finds himself getting his comeuppance at the hands of Jessie Reyez after she digs herself out a grave and does Eminem the same way Jennifer Lopez did Billy Campbell in Enough. It was brutal but well deserved.

Gucci Mane meanwhile seems to be living his best life post-prison as he takes a yacht filled with women and champagne out for a spin in his clip to “Off The Boat.”

Check out the rest of today’s drops including work from XXXTentacion featuring Kanye West, Sadat X and El Da Sensei, and more.

EMINEM FT. JESSIE REYEZ – “GOOD GUY”

GUCCI MANE – “OFF THE BOAT”

XXXTENTACION FT. KANYE WEST – “ONE MINUTE”

PITBULL, LUDACRIS & PRINCE ROYCE – “QUIERO SABER”

https://embed.tidal.com/tidal-embed.js

LIL DURK – “I KNOW”

SADAT X & EL DA SENSEI – “XL”

JORJA SMITH – “THE ONE”

AGENT SASCO – “BANKS OF THE HOPE”

SWIFT – “ELEVATE”

The Video Game awards had many highlights last night such as Red Dead Redemption 2 snagging up multiple awards and God of War taking home Game of The Year honors. BUT the surprise announcement from the game’s creator Ed Boon of the next game in the famed Mortal Kombat fighting game franchise stole the night.

Video game fans were all screaming that collectively after watching Dark Raiden and Scorpion issue each other vicious fades backed by the sounds of a 21 Savage exclusive track titled “Immortal.” As far as the game’s story not much was revealed, but we did get a glimpse of a mysterious new character that described as “at the center” of the game’s plot.

We won’t learn more about the game until the gameplay is revealed at the community celebration of Mortal Kombat taking place Jan. 17, 2019 in Los Angeles but a press release did share the game will have an all-new Custom Character Variation system. As for its launch date, the MK 11 arrives on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch April 23.

Tis The Season: Tyler Perry Opens Up His Wallet & Pays Off $430,000 In Holiday Layaways

Tyler Perry offs X-Mas Shopper's Layaway Fees

Source: Daniel Zuchnik / Getty

Christmas season can be rough on some families and Tyler Perry knows it. So he decided to spread some holiday cheer by opening up is wallet and blessing X-Mas unsuspecting shoppers.

Perry took his Twitter account to make the announcement paid off almost 1,500 people’s layaway fees spending $432,635 according to E! at two Georgia Walmart locations. In the video, he revealed he was trying to do his generous deed anonymously, but knowing nothing stays a secret stated:

“I was trying to do this anonymously. So I just wanted to go ahead and tell you, if you have a layaway at Walmart at 844 Cleveland Avenue in East Point, GA, in Atlanta, or if you have a layaway at the Walmart at 7001 Concourse Parkway in Douglasville, GA…if you have a layaway at either place and it was in there as of 9:30 this morning…I have paid for all of your layaways for Christmas. So Merry Christmas to everybody.”

Very dope. Those shoppers who have been blessed by Mr.Perry only have to pay one cent to pick up their items at the chosen Walmart locations.

“I know it’s hard times, a lot of people are struggling, and I’m just really, really grateful to be able to be in a position to do this,” the filmmaker added. “So God bless you, go get your stuff, and Merry Christmas.”

In speaking with E!News, a spokesperson for Walmart had this to say about Perry putting on his Santa hat:

Tyler Perry’s generous donation is making an unbelievable difference for so many families, and we can’t thank him enough for his kindness. The heartfelt excitement and joy we’re seeing from our customers as a result of his holiday gift has been touching.”

Salute to Tyler Perry, we hope others follow his lead as well.

MLB Players Luis Valbuena & Jose Castillo Killed In Car Crash in Venezuela

Piitsburgh Pirates vs St. Louis Cardinals - June 25, 2005

It’s a sad day for baseball fans as TMZ is reporting that MLB infielders Luis Valbuena and Jose Castillo were both killed in a car crash in Venezuela yesterday (December 6).

According to the report 33-year-old Valbuena and 37-year-old Castillo were killed after leaving a Venezuelan league game and their driver drove off the road after either hitting a rock or swerving in an attempt to avoid the hit.

The driver, teammate Carlos Rivero, survived the wreck.

The MLB released a statement Friday morning, saying, “We are saddened by the tragic news that Luis Valbuena and former major leaguer José Castillo have died in a car accident.”

This comes just two years after Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez was killed in a boat accident just before he was poised to sign a multi-year multi-million dollar contract.

Rest In Power.

Russell Simmons Will Face Rape Accuser In Court Next Year

Russell Simmons’ Netflix's Def Comedy Jam 25 Special Event

Source: Eugene Powers/WENN.com / WENN

Russell Simmons lost a legal battle this week after he attempted to get a lawsuit thrown out of court in relation to a 1988 case where a woman says he allegedly raped her. The lawsuit will proceed as planned next month, and the business mogul will face his accuser in court.

The Blast reports:

On December 5, a Los Angeles judge ordered the lawsuit accusing Simmons of rape can continue on, despite the mogul’s attempts to have the case dismissed.

The judge has ordered Simmons to answer the allegations in the complaint within 20 days.

The order notes that Simmons’ argument that his accuser did not give a specific date of the alleged incident is irrelevant since “the elements of the three claims (forcible rape, intentional infliction of emotional distress and negligent infliction of emotional distress) do not require a date of the incident.”

A hearing has been set for next month.

The woman, identified only as Jane Doe, says the incident took place after she attended a Def Jam concert with her son. According to the woman’s claims, Simmons allegedly threatened her and her son with rape if she didn’t carry out the act at a hotel after party. Simmons has denied carrying out the act and says the woman is seeking to extort him.

Fire & Ice: HBO Teases Destruction in Latest ‘Game of Thrones’ Spot [Video]

Kit Harington - Jon Snow

Source: Helen Sloan / Helen Sloan/HBO

We’re still months away from the season premier of Game of Thrones swan season but that doesn’t mean HBO’s forgotten how to tease you like a stripper who calls you “sexy.”

In the latest teaser trailer for the highly anticipated final season to George R. R. Martin’s brainchild, we see ice and fire engulf what looks like a game board with chess pieces spread throughout. The title to the fantasy novels the HBO series is based on is called A Song of Ice and Fire, so it makes sense. We bet you thought it referenced the Night King and Daenerys Targaryen squaring off, didn’t ya? Could work that way too.

Check out the latest teaser trailer for Game of Thrones below and let us know who you think will be left sitting on the iron throne when it’s all said and done.

Diplomats Show Off Their Icy Jewelry Collection With ‘GQ’ [Video]

Cam'ron and Juelz Santana

Source: photo: WENN

Whether you love or hate them the fact that The Diplomats set trends can’t be disputed. They recently showed off their precious metals to GQ.

Per Hype Beast the latest installment of On The Rocks the Harlem collective, sans Cam’ron took a moment to showcase their individual jewelry collections. Naturally the pieces were dripping with ice and uptown swag.

The segment is opened up with the Jim Jones detailing how the Dipset name came to be. “Diplomats was moving and grooving and one day we just started a chant… off the Master P chant ‘I’m a No Limit Solder I thought I told ya’. We started doing a Harlem world Diplomat chant just like that”.

As they continued to discuss their origins naturally the topic of their infamous bird logo came up and noticeably gummy Juelz Santana pulled out his diamond pendant. From there he goes on to floss an Audemars Piguet watch valued at a cool $45,000 dollars. He went on to admit some of his other timepieces are still in “police custody”. Also featured are various Cuban link bracelets, engagement rings and tennis chains.

When asked who they think is holding the best jewelry collection they unanimously crowned Gucci Mane as king. Jones though made it a point to give Oakland’s own Philthy Rich a respectable mention. You can view the video feature below.
