Draya Michele Has The Internet Ready To Risk It All After Savage X Fenty Thirst Trap Show

Daily Front Row's 2019 Fashion Media Awards

Source: WENN/Avalon / WENN

Draya Michele certainly had herself a Hot Girl Summer after being seen on vacation this summer showing off with Megan Thee Stallion. Now, the actress and media star has the entire Internet on thirst patrol after she was shown thirst trapping in Savage X Fenty on social media.

The 34-year-old beauty had fans of all genders and representations ready to risk it all after showing off her curves in a yellow two-piece number from Rihanna’s brand. Fans were so hot and bothered that some began asking Draya to create an OnlyFans account, and if we need to explain that to you, never mind, just skip it and keep reading.

Draya herself even found the response to her IG story astounding, no pun intended. She even joked with fans about asking what an OnlyFans account is but it’s doubtful she’d participate in the peep show for pay service.

Check out the mountains of thirst for Draya Michele in the comments below. Check out the video in question here in the stories section.

Chief Keef Hosting Mortal Kombat Pop-Up Tournament On Dec. 15 In Long Beach, Calif.

Fans of Mortal Kombat will have a chance to test their skills against other combatants at a pop-up tournament hosted by none other than Chief Keef. The invitational tourney will take place at the Thunder Gaming Studios in Long Beach, Calif. next month.

Thunder Gaming, a digital media, gaming, and eSports company, will be linking up with Keef for the BANG – Mortal Kombat tournament that will be going down Friday, December 13 at 5:00 PM PST.

Keef will be taking on other gamers and celebrities in a six-on-six crew battle for the fighting game franchise’s 11th edition. And for those who can’t make it to the LBC, Thunder Gaming will stream the tournament live via its Twitch channel and also in VR through Live Planet.

“We are excited to team up with Chief Keef and many of his celebrity friends in a fun, competitive way that is designed to introduce their followers and friends to gaming,” Andrew Kennedy, Chief Marketing Officer of Thunder Gaming, said. “We see tremendous overlap with hip hop and consider this a unique opportunity to further grow our brand, gain new followers and show off our Thunder Gaming space.”

If folks aren’t keen to hop into the Mortal Kombat 11 circle, there will be a free-play area for two-on-two Call of Duty: Modern Warfare setups where fans can take on members of Chief Keef’s Glo Navy camp. There will also be NBA 2K20 on deck.

Now for the good stuff.

For those wishing to compete, it’ll cost you $65 to buy in until the day of the competition. For those who just want to come and hang out, it’ll be just $35 to get in and take in the sights.

The ballers out there can get themselves a VIP experience with lounge access, a private bar and more for just $99.

Myles Garrett Won’t Face Criminal Charges In Helmet Fade On Mason Rudolph, Suspension Definitely Happening

Pittsburgh Steelers v Cleveland Browns

In a sport that’s violent as is, a player from the Cleveland Browns has put an even larger stain on the sport after attacking another player with their own helmet. Defensive end Myles Garrett removed Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph’s helmet in a tussle and struck him in the head, but amazingly won’t face criminal charges at the moment.

TMZ Sports reports:

“The person who was hit would have to file a report. There is no criminal complaint filed,” Cleveland PD Public Information Officer Sgt. Jennifer Ciaccia tells us.

The incident went down in the final seconds of the game at FirstEnergy Stadium in Cleveland — when Garrett and Rudolph tussled after a play … followed by Garrett ripping off Mason’s helmet at swinging it at his head.

After the game Garrett spoke about the incident — “What I did was foolish, and I shouldn’t have allowed myself to slip like that,” Garrett said … “It’s out of character.”

“I lost my cool and I regret it,” he added … “It’s going to come back to hurt our team. The guys who jumped into the scrum, I appreciate my team having my back, but it never should have gotten to that point.”

The contest went down Thursday night (November 14) with the Browns defeating the Steelers 21-7 in Cleveland’s home stadium. Garrett will most likely be suspended several games although the NFL, reeling from the news no doubt, has yet to make a decision.

Jhené Aiko Drops New “None Of Your Concern” Song Featuring Big Sean, R&B Twitter Wants More Twenty88

NAMI West LA Moroccan Gala Honoring Jhene Aiko

Source: Michael Bezjian / Getty

Jhené Aiko just blessed the masses with more music, and reuniting with a past love for the second time this year has turned some heads. The California singer just dropped a new single “None Of Your Concern” and R&B Twitter has their lighters effectively raised but wants a sequel to another favored project of hers as the track features ex-boyfriend, Big Sean.

Some might recall that Aiko and Sean dropped the acclaimed Twenty88 project in 2016. With the couple breaking up, it all but seemed as if the pairing of the two would never happen again but “None Of Your Concern” and Sean’s “Single Again” track, also featuring Aiko, from earlier this year has alleviated those concerns.

The song also has a video to go along with the track and fans are clamoring for more. We’ve got the reactions to “None Of Your Concern” below.

Check out the single by following this link or check out the video below.

Alicia Keys Tapped By Grammy Awards To Host Show Once Again

61st Annual GRAMMY Awards - Arrivals

Source: Dan MacMedan / Getty

Alicia Keys was seen by some as an unlikely host for the Grammy Awards last year, but she pulled off the feat and apparently it’s been well-received by those at the top. The singer will return to her hosting duties at the top of 2020 for the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards show.

Keys, self-aware to know many were skeptical about her first time around in hosting the awards ceremony, released a video of the singer essentially poking fun at the development by playing two versions of herself as she prepares. Showing some comedic chops and quick lines, Keys manages to show off a side of her personality folks are just now getting familiar with.

The 62nd Annual Grammy Awards airs on January 26 (a day after Keys’ birthday, as she reminds us) next year on CBS and CBS All Access. Check out the funny announcement below.

Tech N9ne Checks Fans Who Call Eminem A Culture Vulture [Video]

Power 106 Presents Powerhouse 2018

Source: Scott Dudelson / Getty

Tech N9ne is without a doubt one of the top-performing Hip-Hop acts in the world as evidenced by his heavy touring schedule and longevity. Given that the Kansas raper has fans who typically aren’t your typical Hip-Hop fans, he took a moment to call out fans who declared Eminem a culture vulture.
In an Instagram video, Tech N9ne is seen speaking in the clip that’s been chopped up to emphasis the point that he is an artist influenced by a variety of styles despite his chosen professional genre of Hip-Hop.

When he explained that he’s able to rock various types of venues, including hard rock festivals, Tech asked rhetorically if anyone would consider him a culture vulture and that it’s asinine as far as he’s concerned that anyone would assume Eminem is one as well.

Check out the clip below.

Jay-Z May Have Had Some Hand In Colin Kaepernick’s NFL Workout

2019 US Open - Day 4

Source: Al Bello / Getty

Colin Kaepernick will now have his chance to prove to NFL teams and its decision-making staff that he deserves a slot on one of their squads, going against a common narrative that he was done with football. The free-agent quarterback may have to owe part of his good fortune to Jay-Z, who reportedly had some hand in getting the NFL to agree to the private workout.

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport took to Twitter to hammer home his reporting made on NFL Now that Jay-Z was involved in getting this big look for Kaepernick according to Rapoport’s sources.

“Two notes: 1. Jay-Z, a partner with the NFL on social justice, had some influence here. 2. This is not part of Kaepernick’s settlement, nor did he ask for this in his settlement,” Rapoport tweeted in a retweet quote of his report.

Many critics of Jay-Z’s partnership with the NFL was seen as something of a betrayal of Kaepernick and his ongoing fight for social equality and calling out police brutality against Black American citizens. Few believed that he could even leverage his influence to this degree, but it appears fans and observers are witnessing otherwise if reports hold true.

New Orleans Tourism Marketing Corporation X Spotify’s Offline Playlist Brings Together City’s Rich Musical Mix

NOTMC X Spotify The Offline Playlist

Source: Danny Clinch / NOTMC

To use a trite, if regionally accurate, metaphor, New Orleans and its music scene is virtually a gumbo of styles that helped transform it into one of America’s greatest cultural hubs. Back in September, the New Orleans Tourism Marketing Corporation (NOTMC) worked with Spotify to release an innovative playlist that has been transformed into a live album featuring a number of The Big Easy’s top musical acts.

The Offline Playlist was first introduced earlier this year and featured musicians from the worlds of jazz, hip hop, funk, blues, and zydeco. The “Side A” version of the playlist features tracks from the likes of Curren$y and his Jet Life collective, Juvenile, Mannie Fresh, Walter “Wolfman” Washington, Irma Thomas and more.

Spotify and the NOTMC curated a live concert this past July featuring many of the playlist acts and invited Spotify users at random based on their listening habits to hear the artists perform their original works with the backing of the Preservation Hall Jazz Band. The moment was captured on film by rock and roll photographer Danny Clinch with assistance from NOTMC’s Justen Williams.

The full-length documentary film for The Offline Playlist will be released early next year and a trailer can be viewed below. For now, we invite readers to check out the NOTMC X Spotify live album for The Offline Playlist, featuring Curren$y, Mannie Fresh, Boyfriend, the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, and others over some stellar live instrumentation below.
