On September 13, 1996, Tupac Shakur was shot and killed. 21 years since his murder, the legend of 2Pac is still alive and well, most recently in the Benny Boom-directed biopic All Eyez on Me that dropped this past June.
The Game pays tribute to Shakur with a new record titled “Heaven 4 a Gangster,” which will be used in the upcoming A&E docuseries Who Killed Tupac? On “Heaven 4 a Gangster,” Game raps about how ‘Pac would feel if he was still alive in 2017.
“My cousin Tasha shot in the stomach, pregnant at 19/She died, but the baby kept stompin’/That how hard us little niggas come up/Born and raised in Compton/We earned this shit, we learnt this shit/City used to be all white/Look how we turnt this shit/2Pac turning in his grave from all this nonsense/A little soldier ain’t from Bompton/I put that on the homies,” he raps.
Who Killed Tupac? will be airing a six-part limited series produced by Renegade 83 in association with FGW Productions. The series follows civil rights attorney Benjamin Crump as he conducts an investigation twenty years after the tragic murder of the late historical icon.
Travis Scott appeared in Miguel’s video for “Sky Walker” last month, and his personal DJ Chase B recently unleashed a remix of Kodak Black and XXXTENTACION’s Project Baby 2 cut “Roll In Peace.”
The song was part of a mix that Chase B was playing earlier in the week including many of today’s most popular tracks.
featuring Damian Marley and Skrillex. The song is an excellent blend of their respective styles into a cohesive final product.
“Said you wasn’t comin’ over, but you happy that you came, yeah/ Said you wasn’t gonna drink, but you happy that you did, yeah/(Put it on her tongue, yeah)/Didn’t think you had a match, but both of us lit, yeah/And you was just about to leave, ain’t you’re glad that you stayed, yeah,” sings Ty Dolla.
Over the reggae-themed track, Marley—who recently dropped his Stony Hill LP—comes through with a verse of his own: “If you’re searching for the truth, but you’re so smart, that you always know a lie, baby, so am I.”
Beach House 3 will drop sometime this fall. Earlier this year
Playboi Carti might’ve made his name when he released one of the hottest rap singles of 2017 with “Magnolia,” but the young rapper is here to let the world know, he’s no one-hit wonder. Today, after finding more success with followup cuts such as “wokeuplikethis,” “Lookin” and “dodatshit!,” Cash Carti unleashes a new video for his A$AP Rocky-assisted banger, “New Choppa.”
In the clip, you’ll find the Rocky and Carti at the gun range with a pair of what appear to be draco assault rifles, similar to the one often used by Soulja Boy. Alongside several women, watch as they engage in some cozy target practice.
Over the weekend, (Aug. 26), E-40 premiered a new song on Dr. Dre’s Beats 1 show, The Pharmacy. “Straight Out the Dirt” features YoungBoy Never Broke Again and Yo Gotti.
If there is anything The Ambassador of the Bay knows how to do it’s collaborating with the next generation. On E-40’s latest song, he lets YoungBoy Never Broke Again handle hook duties. “I went from nothing to something, I had to make this shit work/Came up from nothing/I got it straight out the dirt,” spits YoungBoy with a determination and directness that expertly sells the song’s concept.
E-40 sprinkles his natural sauce across the sinister track. He employs at least three different flows and assists YoungBoy with some ad-libs during the song’s chorus. Yo Gotti shows up by the end of the track to hit the proceedings out of the park and make sure listeners understand how far the three southern MCs have come.
Bred in some of the roughest streets in America and scarred by a father who succumbed to drug addiction, boxer Yahu Blackwell has literally battled against the odds to make it to where he is today.
Fighting his way through a 156 -28 amateur record Yahu Blackwell has since gone pro and made great strides doing so as seen in his last fight versus Alvaro Vasquez.
“I been putting them boys down,” Yahu explained “My last fight was April 6th when I fought Alvaro Vasquez and I knocked him out in the first round. He was tougher than I expected and everyone you have to fight differently, but I was confident during that fight and I think I proved that.
Coming full circle, Yahu is closely tied to the world of Hip-Hop and will be instrumental in the promotion of Bankroll Fresh’s posthumous album. In addition to training and entering the ring to Bankroll’s music, he has officially been commissioned at Street Money Worldwide’s official ambassador.
In addition to wearing Bankroll’s mechandise and representing Street Moeny Worldwide, Yahu is stepping out with an entrepreneurial spirit and releasing an app that features all new music from the late-Bankroll Fresh.
“Bankrolls music is dope and when I first started listening to him it was very easy to connect with him. I’ve been training to his music and I’m to put together a lil training video to his music too,” he said.
The People’s Champ is designed to bring casual fans back to boxing as the game puts players in the ring with easy to use game play features for a thrilling boxing experience where players can fight in either amateur or professional mode. Virtual fighter’s have the opportunity to develop, show off their skills and to become the The People’s Champ.
The game is set to launch before the close of 2017.
15-0 in the International Boxing League (IBL), Yahu has boxed in Spain, Great Britain, and other countries, and has trained with Roger Mayweather, Floyd Mayweather Sr., and Freddy Roach.
Finding his way in the new world combat fighting with MMA, UFC and other popular forms of fighting, Yahu is happy that he is growing up in this era of boxing where he can be a business man and a boxer to feed his family.
“I think that boxing is different from how it was back in the day. It was more about glory and honor and all that great stuff back in the day, now fighters are more business men than anything. I think that it’s good thing because a lot of the legendary fighters retired but didn’t have anything to show for it. Now fighters are more better able to feed their families.”
The boxer opened up his mouth about Trump and just kept talking…and talking…and talking.
Rihanna is a trend setter in many ways and her immensely popular Fenty slides have gained plenty of fans, and now admirers, as Kim Kardashian is being accused of “biting” Rih Rih’s style.
With the Raiders leading the Jets by 22 points in the fourth quarter on Sunday, Marshawn Lynch danced on the sideline during what was his first regular-season game in Oakland since signing with the Raiders in the offseason. His dancing excited the crowd, but it made a few of the players on the Jets mad. They spoke about it after the game, and while they stopped short of criticizing Lynch for celebrating the Raiders’ victory with a dance, they clearly weren’t happy with what went down.
It’s been a while since Cam’ron last publicly feuded with JAY-Z, but according to some hip-hop fans, an upcoming song from Cam may feature a diss aimed at Hov.
The Harlem rapper recently uploaded a snippet of a new song on Instagram which features the lines “you know Killa.” Cam also spits, “R.I.P. to Mike, but I’m the real Thriller.”
While the lines may not seem like a big deal, some fans think the Cam lines are his way of firing back for Jay’s lines on the song “Moonlight.” On the 4:44 song, Jigga raps, “Look, I know killers, you no killer, huh.”
Although the JAY-Z line is believed to be in reference to Kanye West’s infamous Saint Pablo Tour rant where he told Jay, “I know you got killers please don’t send ’em at my head, just call me,” it could be flipped to read, “I know killers, you know Killa, huh.”
A post shared by @mr_camron on Sep 13, 2017 at 9:19pm PDT
As for Cam’s Thriller line, it’s believed it could be a play on Jay rapping, “Stop walkin’ around like y’all made Thriller” line from the same song. Whether Cam’ron’s new song is just a slight dig at Jay or a full-fledged diss, the rapper goes on to rap, “I’m done with that/I ain’t beefin’ with the family, man.”
In related JAY-Z news, the “Bam” rapper is reportedly working on ending his feud with West. According to a report from TMZ, Yeezy requested a face-to-face meeting with Hov, and the two have already been slowing fixing their relationship.
If Lil Uzi Vert wants to drop new music every single day for the foreseeable future, we’d be down. So why not hit us with a Playboi Carti collab project? In a Snapchat post over the weekend, Carti appeared to confirm that something with Uzi is afoot.
Hypno Carlito: “I’m from Chicago, the Westside, I got started with listening to rappers like the early kings – Biggie and Pac. I really like the battle scene and I remember seeing Jay-Z and Nas get into it. I had really wanted to battle, but I been taking serious since I was a shorty.”
The based god promises swift retribution after Lonzo dismissed Nas’ body of work.
Young Dolph has been having a good week, for all intents and purposes. If you hadn’t seen, Lebron James was recently blasting Dolph’s music while cruising around for his Snapchat, giving the street rapper a heavy co-sign, and undoubtedly Dolph had caught wind of this. Unfortunately, it looks like things have gone south today, although details on the situation are currently scarce.
A report has surfaced that Young Dolph has been shot multiple times while in Hollywood, Los Angeles. The Memphis-based rapper was outside of the Shoe Palace, which is located at a well-known Hollywood and Highland intersection, when he was shot multiple times. Law enforcement sources say the rapper is being rushed to a local hospital. Apparently officers were nearby and responded immediately.
As for information on the shooter and/or shooters — there is none at the moment, it’s also unclear if more than one person opened fire on Dolph. Although he’s reportedly suffered multiple gunshot wounds, the injuries are non-life-threatening. Still, get your prayers up and well wishes out for Dolph.
We’ll be updating this story as more details arrive.
The Life of Kylie just hit another milestone: Kylie Jenner, the youngest member of the Kardashian brood, is reportedly pregnant.
The news came via TMZ on Friday, with the website reporting that the father is Jenner’s beau, rapper Travis Scott. People also had the news, reporting that the baby is due sometime in February.
As UsWeekly astutely pointed out, the E! reality star sparked rumors earlier this week when fans noticed that she was primarily posting old photos on her social media accounts and her current photos have been only close-ups.
Jenner’s rep did not immediately respond to the Los Angeles Times’ request for comment.
This would be the first child for the 20-year-old Kylie Cosmetics mogul and the Houston rapper, whose real name is Jacques Webster Jr. The two have been linked since the Coachella Valley Arts and Music Festival in April and made a public appearance courtside at an NBA game soon after that.
Sources told the sites that the couple began telling friends about the pregnancy earlier this month.
Xxxtentacion Shaves His Eyebrows Turns Into An X Men After Going Through Mental Breakdown
For decades now, copping your mom a house has been a rite of passage for blooming rap stars. Very recently, former XXL Freshman Lil Yachty accomplished that often-written about feat, and like the millennial he is, posted about it on Instagram.
For the caption of his post, which includes a screenshot of a text his mother sent him, Yachty uses a lyric for an unreleased Lil Boat 2 song. “Made it out my momma crib, then bought my moms a crib,” he writes. The text his mom sent him is priceless.
“You did it!!!!” wrote Momma Boat in the text. “You bought yo mama a house today for real!!!!! I am so grateful to you for everything you have done for me!!!! Words can not explain how warm my heart is today!!!! You have blessed me beyond measures!!! I love you so much!!!!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️ 😘😘😘😍😍😍😍😍😍❤️❤️❤️ Im so humble God picked me to be you
Just about three weeks after entering rehab, the perpetually-troubled DMX is sober. His lawyer Murray Richman said as much to TMZ earlier this week.
According to Richman, X is “back to being human again” after entering a New England rehab facility in late August. Richman says X had reached an unhealthy level of thinness when he entered the rehab facility, but now he’s gained 40 pounds.
Ricman says X’s rehab program is technically complete, but he wants the rapper to stay an extra 30 days because he’s been doing so well with the treatment. X isn’t on lockdown, though, and they’re actually letting he and a friend take day trips to a nearby town. Sounds like he’s getting the help he needs.
It’s great to see DMX has, for the moment, conquered his drug addiction, but he’s still got some serious legal battles to face in the very near future. This past July, X was hit with tax evasion charges of $1.7 million. X faces up to 44 years in prison if he’s convicted on all 14 counts of tax evasion.
Richman says he and X will worry about the rapper’s impending court battle when X has completed his rehab program once and for all. He also says X hasn’t discounted the possibility of going on tour in the future.

Is Lil Uzi Vert a devil worshiper? – Lil Uzi Vert is one of the hottest new rappers right now. And the success Uzi has seen this past year has been unmatchable. He recently dropped his highly anticipated ”Luv Is Rage” album, and the album is looking to do some big numbers. But there’s been some controversy surrounding if Lil Uzi Vert is a devil worshiper or not. Uzi has been doing some questionable things this past few year, like getting a Marilyn Manson chain. Manson is someone who’s always been extremely open about his relationship with the devil. But it doesn’t end here, Lil Uzi Vert also got praised and named as ”Lucifer” by Manson on an Instagram post. And Uzi has showed some weird behavior in the past by calling Marilyn Manson his ”father”, and saying that he would leave this earth because of Manson if he turns 27 years old. All of these things are reasons why Lil Uzi Vert has been associated with the devil.
21 Savage is lucky to be alive, let alone making hit records and enjoying the good life with model/actress Amber Rose at his side. On October 22, 2013, his 21st birthday, the gang-affiliated Atlanta rapper was famously hit six times — including once in the neck — in a shooting that claimed the life of his best friend. He survived with a hardened attitude, but when another close friend was killed the following March, he decided to start rapping in pursuit of a better life.
Now just 24, 21 Savage considers himself “chosen.” After releasing his debut single, the DJ Plugg-produced “Picky,” in 2014, he made waves in 2015 with his mixtapes The Slaughter Tape and Slaughter King and his Free Guwop EP, which he recorded with Sonny Digital in tribute to an incarcerated Gucci Mane. In summer 2016, with buzz already building, he dropped Savage Mode, his collaborative EP with producer Metro Boomin, and notched his first platinum single, “X.” Having become a household name, he signed to Epic Records in January 2017 and dropped his debut album, Issa, in July.
With his latest hit, “Bank Account,” creeping up the charts and giving him a life he once could only dream of, 21 Savage dropped by the GGN studios to talk to Uncle Snoop about ways to get out of the dead-end streets, investing in your own business, their mutual love of R&B, and hooking up with famous women.
