This past weekend Connor McGregor made his long awaited return to the ring at UFC 257 and though he took a SNKRS’s sized “L” at the end of the night, viewers were treated to Eminem’s latest music video.

Keeping with the vibe of a big fight night, Eminem’s visuals to “Higher” featured Mrs. Mathers hooded down and getting amped up in the ring a la LL Cool J in “Mama Said Knock You Out.” If anyone didn’t know any better they’d swear this was Em paying homage to the Hip-Hop icon or something.

Elsewhere DaBaby looks to keep his name ringing bells in 2021 as he hops on BRS Kash’s clip to the City Girls assisted “Throat Baby” and go through a variety of situations including piloting an airplane to snowboarding down a mountain. It’s all CGI but still looks like hella fun.

Chances are you going to learn something new when Jim Jones is being interview. CAPO Status is now claiming his crew contributed to Lil Wayne’s drip.

As spotted on Hot New Hip Hop the Harlem native recently caught up with Tuma Basa, Director of Black Music & Culture at YouTube, as the newest installment in the #Hack3d interview series for HipHopDX. He discussed a variety of topics including his influence on the Hip-Hop game. Co-host Marisa Mendez posed a question to Weezy being one of the talents who soaked up their style like a sponge and Jim detailed that it was a natural result of their time together.

“Well Wayne spent the whole summer with us,” he opened. “We spent the whole summer with Juelz pretty much. He just adapted all the styles. He pretty much knew what he was doing. He knew what he needed and sh*t like that to persevere in this game. And that was to be able to get an identity shift and shit like that. That’s what he did and shit like that. You dig.”

Jim continued, “Most people that hang around us end up moving in one accord and sh*t like that, which is not a bad thing. If I was around some n***as like us, I would try to move like that too. These n***as looking kind of smooth, they fly, they gangsters. So shouts out to Wayne, shouts out to the whole Cash Money and sh*t like that.”

Over the past few years, a number of high-profile rappers and entertainers have delved into the cannabis business with measurable success. Lil Wayne, a co-founder of the GKUA Ultra Premium brand, is expanding the empire to Colorado and Lil Twist will be on hand for a special IG Live event on Tuesday (Jan. 26) to commemorate the new move.

Launched in 2019, GKUA Ultra Premium has already made its way through the dispensary networks of California and Michigan, and beginning on Wednesday, Jan. 27, residents in Colorado can experience the new wares.

“GKUA is about inspiring people, it’s about a feeling. Now Colorado will get to experience the quality and potency of that GKUA,” Lil Wayne offered in a statement.

GKUA Ultra Premium has partnered with Colorado-based Harmony Extracts and will bring Lil Wayne and GUKA co-founder Beau Golob’s product to select dispensaries in Denver and across the state.

“We are thrilled to bring GKUA Ultra Premium to our third state,” Golob added in the statement. “Harmony is known for their incredible portfolio of cannabis products. They are the perfect partner for GKUA in Colorado. Their cultivators and expert lab teams know exactly what specific qualities, purity and potency are needed to produce GKUA products. Colorado is the oldest adult-use market in the U.S., and we’re excited to bring an ultra-premium product to customers who know and appreciate quality.”

Much like other high-end cannabis brands, GKUA Ultra Premium looks to be the genuine article and it would figure that those who partake will be lining up in droves to try out the products. It looks like those customers will have a chance to get their hands on the product as 32 dispensaries will carry GKUA.

Products include flower strains, such as the popular Wedding Cake and more. There’s also vape oil and live sauce concentrates, along with delivery devices such as the GKUKA Ultra Premium battery for the vaping products.

Lil Twist, signed to Weezy F. Baby’s Young Money Entertainment imprint, will be live on the GKUA Instagram account on Tuesday, Jan. 26 at 4 p.m MT/6 p.m. ET. Twist will chop it up with a cannabis cultivator, a lab director, and retail officials from dispensaries across the state. Those tuning in will have a shot at winning exclusive GKUA gear along with other special guests slated to show up.

It’s fitting that Lil Wayne’s cannabis line is coming to the Centennial State as it was one of the first two states along with Washington to legalize recreational marijuana use.

Now for the important stuff. To find GKUA Ultra Premium products at your favorite dispensary, check out the Weezy Weed Finder by following this link.

We are only one battle into the 2021 and it seems Verzuz is about to level up. The founders are aiming to bring some late greats to their platform— 2Pac and the Notorious B.I.G. .

Last week, Ashanti and Keyshia Cole finally faced off. Even though the event didn’t live up to the hype, Swizz Beatz and Timbaland are already looking ahead. As spotted on Hypebeast the co-creators caught up with ESPN’s Jalen & Jacoby for an interview. During the conversation the duo asked the “Roman’s Revenge” producer what would be his holy grail match; his answer took the masses by surprise. “My dream one…I want [to] figure out how to do Pac and Biggie in a way that the people are going [to] love it” he said.

His partner Timbaland was on the line and quickly chimed in with excitement. “I got you on that. I got the idea for it. [I’m going to] call you later,” he said. Timbo went on to add another epic line up to the consideration pool. “Oh, but not even that, we got to go Prince and Michael Jackson!”. Jalen Rose asked if they were hinting at possible holograms and Tim hinted that they have some things in the works.

Dwyane Wade Floats Idea of Starting An OnlyFans Account With Gabrielle Union 

Dwyane Wade Floats Idea of Starting An OnlyFans Page With Gabrielle Union

Are we really that interested in what goes down in D-Wade and Gabrielle Union’s bedroom? The retired baller thinks so.

Throughout the pandemic, OnlyFans has been a saving grace for many giving those cooped up and uncontrollably horny some spank material while keeping some adult content creators financially stable during the pandemic. But like any wave, eventually, celebrities have to hop on it using it as a new tool to line up their already fat pockets while trying to connect with fans by sharing risque photos or, in the case of Cardi B share BTS footage of her and Megan Thee Stallion’s hit single “WAP.”

Just recently, for whatever reason, Fat Joe and his buddy DJ Khaled decided to start an OnlyFans account, and now Miami Heat legend shared with his 9.3 million followers on Sunday (Jan.24) that he was trying to convince his wife they should start an account. In the tweet, Wade shared the infamous gif of Senator Bernie Sanders and his mittens looking unbothered but warm and cozy, signifying his lovely wife is not down with that idea.

D-Wade didn’t hint at what kind of content the couple would be sharing if, in fact, they did create an OnlyFans account but based on the tweet, he wasn’t talking about wholesome content.

Wade’s suggestion comes after his lewd birthday post where his privates were strategically blocked by a grinning Union that had his kids wishing they could wipe the moment from their minds and Instagram timelines. But, even though his wife isn’t down, there are definitely some willing to pay to get an uncensored look at the Wade’s love life.

While it looks like it’s not going to happen, crazier things have happened, and we’re not closing the door to the idea of D-Wade and Gabrielle Union OnlyFans account.

Master P Highlights Trion Supercars From Black Former Tesla Engineer 

Master P Reviews x Trion Supercars

Tesla and the company’s Model S vehicle is one of the most sought-after luxury vehicles in its class, and an engineer who worked on the car is set on making history. Richard Patterson, who was one of the engineers of the Model S, is now noted as the first Black owner of an exotic auto manufacturing company, and Master P highlighted Patterson’s Trion Supercars line.

In a press release that went out last week, Percy “Master P” Miller and his son Romeo featured Patterson on the Master P Reviews YouTube program. Putting a focus on Patterson’s Trion Supercars Group, P and Romeo checked out the company’s 2000-horsepower Nemesis car. The Millers were so blown away by the car that they gave it a rating of 10 across the board.

“I just want to let black people and minorities across the world know how big this is… to have a brother like you to be a part of technology, creating stuff that can change the world,” Master P was quoted as saying about Patterson’s high-end ride.

Patterson’s foray into automobile manufacturing and design began when he was just a teenager in Detroit, Mich. for General Motors. He went on to work as the advanced vehicle engineer for the Tesla Model S and is reportedly only one of four four automotive engineers that can build a car from early design schematics to full production. Patterson was also responsible for designing the landing gear for the Boeing 777 and the carseat folding system inside the Dodge Minivan.

Check out Master P’s review of the Trion Supercars’ Nemesis below.

South Carolina Rapper 18veno Shot & Killed

2020 was a year when rappers across the board were targeted by thieves, police and even killers, and it seems like 2021 will be continuing the trend as already the life of another young up-and-coming rapper has been cut short.

According to Pitchfork South Carolina rapper 18veno was shot last night and pronounced dead by the York County Coroner’s Office in South Carolina. 18veno was only 19-years-old.

The past year was a pivotal one in 18veno’s career; in 2020 he dropped the five-track R4z EP, as well as his debut project Pablo, both of which were issued by the South Carolina label BoyMeetSpace.

18veno often worked with artists native to South Carolina; Pablo includes a feature from fellow South Carolinian artist PG RA on “Cops & Robbers,” and his frequent collaborators jetsonmade and Neeko Baby both hail from his home state. “I still don’t think we have the respect we need,” he said of South Carolina artists in an interview with Lyrical Lemonade last summer. “We ain’t on like we’re supposed to be, yet. It’s up to us at this point—it’s up to the artists that SC has right now. I wanna be one of the ones that helps put us on at a worldwide level.”

In the past year Hip-Hop has seen it’s young artists like Pop Smoke, Mo3, and King Von fall victim to senseless gun violence. Hopefully this trend subsides because it’s just getting ridiculous at this point.

Rest in power, 18veno.

Kanye West Barks On Chance The Rapper In Documentary Clip

Over the past few years Kanye West has alienated millions of fans as he’s done weird things such as calling slavery a “choice” to co-signing Donald Trump’s racist MAGA movement, before ultimately running as a democratic spoiler candidate in the 2020 Presidential race.

Luckily for him some of his celebrity peers have reached out to be there for him in what seemed to be a mental breakdown episode, but unfortunately Chance The Rapper caught the wrath of MAGA Yeezy while the two where conversing in the studio. In the minute-long clip is reportedly from the upcoming YZY TV making of the DONDA album documentary, we witness Kanye just unload on Chance The Rapper for whatever reason before telling him “Sit your ass down and listen to the album or leave!!”

Dame Dash explained that during the process he told Kanye to get rid of people who would trigger him and it seemed like Chance might’ve been one of those people. Luckily, Dame also explained that they worked out whatever issue they had and went about their day.

This is the same man who felt he could run the country and ran for President.

At the end of the clip we see Chance tell Kanye a joke to which everyone bursts out in laughter. Dealing with bipolar friends can be a lot to deal with. Just ask Chance The Rapper.

Check the clip below and be on the look out for YZY TV’s making of the DONDA.
