Tyler, the Creator gave fans a big thrill with the announcement of the return of the Camp Flog Gnaw festival after a long hiatus.
The Call Me If You Get Lost rapper made the announcement through social media Wednesday (May 31), confirming the festival’s return after being on hold for four years. The two-day concert event will be held at the home of the Los Angeles Dodgers, Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, California on the weekend of November 11 and November 12.

Camp Flog Gnaw’s return was teased by Tyler in his cameo appearance in the music video for “The Hillbillies” by Kendrick Lamar and Baby Keem while they were outside of Dodger Stadium. The rapper flashed the button touting the event at the 3:19 minute mark of the video, sparking a frenzy among fans online.

The last festival was held in 2019 and featured Solange, Juice WRLD, Brockhampton and FKA twigs along with other artists. It became infamous after fans at the festival booed Drake, who appeared as a special guest when they were led to believe that Frank Ocean would appear on stage. Tyler wasn’t too pleased about the situation. “Yall represented me and Flog to my guest and made us look sooo entitled and trash,” he said afterward before comparing the incident to “cancel culture in real life.”

Two-day general admission passes for Camp Flog Gnaw start at $335 including fees, while VIP passes cost $595 with fees. The super VIP package will be on sale for $1,495 plus fees and includes “1 VIP wristband with a dedicated entry lane, exclusive food and shaded/seating areas, access to the exclusive Super VIP Clubhouse, a viewing area at multiple stages, and a Super VIP merch package including a custom SE 29-inch Big Flyer Bike, Converse x Golf Wang custom shoe, a “Camp Flog Gnaw” blanket, fanny pack, mug, and pin,” according to the press statement.

The advance passes for Camp Flog Gnaw go on sale to the public after registering on Friday (June 2) on the festival’s website.

DJ Envy Blasted By Joe Budden After Real Estate Fiasco 

CulturePreneur - Brandon Medford Sales Academy Launch Event

DJ Envy has been having a tough few weeks in the media with Rick Ross having a field day taking shots at him as their car show beef continues. The Breakfast Club host was recently embroiled in a real estate scandal, prompting Joe Budden to blast DJ Envy on his podcast.

On Budden’s The Joe Budden Podcast program, a segment was devoted to the real estate woes of DJ Envy and Cesar Piña, the latter who is accused of scamming customers out of millions of dollars after botched investments.

As reported by AllHipHop, Piña, and Envy joined forces in 2018 to partner on hosting seminars aimed at real estate interests in the tri-state area. Piña offered a public statement via his @flippin_nj account on Instagram, which can be read below. In the statement, Piña does his best to clear the name of DJ Envy and said he should not suffer the brunt of critique.

Envy also went public in addressing the controversy by way of an Instagram Live interview with Tony “The Closer” Robinson, a former NFL player who also works in real estate among other endeavors. Robinson has also aimed his distate of Piña’s business dealings via social media in past times.

Budden addressed the issue in his usual tongue in cheek fashion by using a common tactic on his podcast by playing Kanye West’s “Jail” track to signify Piña and Envy might see a visit from the authorities in their near future. Budden later blasted Piña and tied his response to a dig back at DJ Envy, who said that his Breakfast Club co-host should’ve topped Complex’s recent podcast list instead of the New Jersey rapper and media personality.

Check out the episode where Joe Budden claps at DJ Envy below. Begin at the 34:00-minute mark.

We couldn’t even make this story up even if we tried.

As seen on Raw Story, a South Carolina man was arrested in connection with the robbery of a convenience store where he allegedly used Nintendo Duck Hunt gun, which was spray painted black to commit the crime local law enforcement said.


Per Raw Story:

Joseph Dalesandro, 25, of Sharon, was arrested on suspicion of armed robbery with a deadly weapon among other charges and booked into the York County Detention Center, the Sheriff’s Office said.

The robbery happened at around 5:45 p.m. Tuesday at the Sharon Kwik Stop convenience store on York St., the Sheriff’s Office said.

Dalesandro is accused of entering the store wearing a mask, wig, and hooded sweatshirt and then flashing the fake gun before demanding money from the cash register, the Sheriff’s Office said.

The police was able to track Dalesandro to the parking lot of Dollar General down the street and the Duck Hunt gun was down his pants the website reports.

As for the amount of money Dalesandro epically played himself for, he allegedly stole $300 from the clerk before cops caught up to him to end his “reign of terror.”

The History of Duck Hunt

Brief little history lesson, Nintendo released Duck Hunt in the Unitied States in 1985 for the Nintendo Entertainment System with the “NES Zapper” accessory.

Players could shoot at the ducks on screen thanks to the optical sensor in the Zapper by pointing at the CRT monitor that was running the game.

Duck Hunt was one of the games bundled with the groundbreaking video game console and quickly became a favorite among gamers.

We are sure Nintendo didn’t think it would ever be used to hold up a store.

#BRUHNews: MAGA Gun-Loving Pastor Becomes A Rapper

Gun Toting Pastor Rapper

The head of a religious group that conducts worship with AR-15 assault rifles and supports MAGA politics is now entering the rap game.
Pastor Hyung-Jin “Sean” Moon, the head of The Sanctuary Church (also known as Rod of Iron Ministries) has made a shift from preaching far-right platitudes in his sermons to creating rap videos spreading those extremist messages. According to reports, he was touting a YouTube video channel that hosted low-budget videos he created in the growing genre of “MAGA rap” aimed at that section of the population, calling himself “King Bullethead”. Moon’s channel so far has 1,000 subscribers.

The videos usually feature Moon as “King Bullethead” spewing “questionable rhymes” while wearing flashy sunglasses, a crown of gold bullets, and wearing skeleton gloves while sporting a gold-plated AR-15 rifle, the same weapon his church teaches is the “Rod of Iron” that was foretold in the Bible’s Book of Revelations. The YouTube channel with the videos (which Moon promised would be updated each Friday)was launched last December but has been flagged repeatedly by YouTube for content violating its guidelines.

In one song, “Big MAGA 20”, Moon sits at the same desk where he normally delivers sermons. “They can’t stop us so they silence, censor, and act like Communists,” he raps. “Politicians lie to get their power and form their little cliques/Politics is a combination of the words ‘poly’ and ‘ticks’/‘Poly’ means more than one, a few, a group of cliques, and ticks are parasites that suck your blood until the very last drip.” Another video, “Fruit Ninja”, targets the LGBTQ community: “Did you hear about this group called LGTBQ/You may have heard them in your school or even your church pew/They are telling our kids they can switch to any gender/Taking hormones slicing organs like they’re playing Fruit Ninja.”

Moon’s pivot to rap comes as there’s a rise of rappers who tout far-right views, evidenced by the recent furor caused by Forgatio Blow, who has been pushing a song called “Boycott Target”, calling them out for having products from LGBTQ creators in their stores. The move to rap also arrives as Moon is seeking to expand upon his late father Rev. Sun Myung Moon’s legacy by having the Rod of Iron Ministries embrace figures like Steve Bannon and buying property on a Tennessee mountain and a compound near Waco, Texas.

Megan Thee Stallion Says That Rap Is Secondary Right Now To Her “Healing” Process 

2023 CMT Music Awards - Arrivals

For a minute there, Megan Thee Stallion was one of the hottest names in the rap game. But since then, the Houston representative has fallen back from the music scene, and it seems like making records isn’t a priority in her life right now.

Having gone through a very public shaming for her personal life that came to light during the Tory Lanez trial related to her shooting, Megan has taken time off to heal her wounds. In a new interview with InStyle magazine, the “Plan B” rapper explains why music is secondary in her life right now. Telling InStyle that her day ones can expect new work from her when she’s “in a better place,” Thee Stallion says that she’s using this time to heal her wounds, as that should be anyone’s priority when going through the gauntlet called life.

So what has Megan been up to these days as she regroups and pieces herself back together? Well, it looks a lot like what’d you expect from the everyday person who doesn’t have a record deal or a few Grammy awards.

InStyle reports:

These days, that looks like spending time with her dogs, working out, bingeing TV shows, and simply finding new ways to protect her peace. You can now find her setting boundaries and incorporating rest days into her schedule to take care of both her physical and mental health. “The music and entertainment industry can be a grind, so it’s important to take time off and avoid burning out,” she says. “Life is all about balance.” 

Indeed it is.

Though that’s not keeping her from growing her own brand as she continues to be a Revlon global ambassador and use their products to keep her looking fresh when she’s on stage or posting pics on social media. Speaking as to why she chooses Revlon products to keep her beauty shining, Megan says “It keeps my glam looking flawless, especially during festival season when I’m on stage and performing in the summer heat.”

Good job, Revlon. Good job.

While we understand that Megan needs this time to gather herself and get to a better mental place, we hope she doesn’t keep her fans waiting too long for new material. Those Stallion riders might get a bit antsy if they’re kept waiting too long.

What do y’all think of Megan Thee Stallion falling back from the music game for a minute? Let us know in the comments section below.

Shannon Sharpe To Exit ‘Undisputed’ Show, Twitter Stares In Skip Bayless 

2016 IAVA Heroes Gala

Shannon Sharpe and Skip Bayless have one of the most popular morning sports programs in Undisputed and the strong personalities of the pundits made for great television. With reports that Shannon Sharpe will be exiting the show at the conclusion of the 2023 NBA Finals, fans on Twitter have lots to say.

For the past seven years, Shannon Sharpe and Skip Bayless informed and entertained the masses with their explosive sports opinions that often ended in heated but good-natured debates on Fox Sports 1. As the New York Post reports, FS1 and Sharpe, 54, reached a mutual buyout agreement according to insider sources speaking with the outlet.

That same source added that the Club Shay Shay podcast hosted by Sharpe will also make an exit from FS1 channels.

While there was public tension between the pair in connection to the on-field collapse of Damar Hamlin during a football game, it appeared that the two hosts put that issue behind them after a brief work stoppage on Sharpe’s part and all signs pointed to them continuing their show.

The hosts also go wack back to Bayless’ ESPN days with First Take as Sharpe often filled in for the outspoken Stephen A. Smith and sparred masterfully with Bayless in that brief stint. Some fans think that a return to EPSN might be imminent for Sharpe as well.

It isn’t known what the next move is for Shannon Sharpe but according to what we witnessed in today’s Undisputed episode, there doesn’t appear to be bad blood. However, Twitter has a different view of things and we’ve got those reactions below.

Kanye West Sued By Photographer For Throwing Her Phone 

Celebrity Sightings In Los Angeles - May 13, 2023

Ye’s lawyers stay busy. Kanye West is being sued by the photographer whose phone he evidently grabbed and hurled back in January.

TMZ reports that Nichol Lechmanik is suing West for assault, battery and negligence.

In January, Ye got into a heated confrontation with paparazzi as he was driving away from his daughter North West’s basketball game, along with his new wife Bianca Censori. Apparently, Ye noticed he was being followed and stopped to confront the photographers.

Lechmanik wasn’t even the first photographer Ye argued with, but soon enough his attention turned to her.

Reports TMZ:

According to one of the photogs, Nichol Lechmanik, Ye was angrily confronting a different paparazzo, going through the man’s pockets … and she claims she feared the rapper might have had a weapon on him.

In the lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, Lechmanik says she was terrified he would come after her next … and he did. Video shows Ye approaching her as she sat in the driver’s seat of her car, recording him with her phone and yelling, “You all ain’t gonna run up on me like that!”

Ye told her, “If I say stop, stop with your cameras.” Then he ripped her phone out of her hands and tossed it — she says it landed in oncoming traffic.

We are going to point out the whole scary Black man trope that’s being insinuated here, but Ye didn’t do himself any favors in that regard. And she thought Ye might have a weapon, really?

Regardless, the incident was caught on video, so expect a settlement. Although Ye was named a suspect in local law enforcement’s battery investigation—and despite a long history of beefing with photographers—he was never charged.

Offset Shares Footage Of Him Appreciating Cardi B’s Cakes

Offset doesn’t mince his words when it comes to his wife. He recently shared a clip of him appreciating Cardi B’s ample backside.

As spotted on Page Six the “Ric Flair Drip” rapper missed his better half in a major way. This week he reunited with her and made it clear that he is a very lucky man. He shared a not safe for work clip of her laying down on a bed while his hand went to her backside. He proceeded to pull down her pants and massage her signature assets in all their glory. Naturally Bardi felt the love and responded “You happy to see me?” to which he responded “Yes, I miss you so much.”

As expected Offset’s share drew both support and criticism with some questioning his respect for Cardi. “I don’t get s—t like this at all, u want the whole world to see ur lady like that??????” one user commented. Another follower called out that the move was in poor taste given they have kids saying “What happened to dignity & self-respect?”. While Cardi and Offset seem to be on great terms it seems his relationship with his recording home Quality Control Music is not. Recently it was revealed that he has been in a legal battle to retain his masters.

On Monday, April 3 he took to social media to preview a new untitled song which seemed to address his challenges with his recording home. “They can’t be too upset / I could of kept it to myself, they can’t be too upset / I done broke bread, cut checks, they can’t be too upset / I took that rope off my neck, they couldn’t be too upset / N****s still bite my style, they can’t be too upset / I done laid low for a while, they can’t be that upset / N****s lost all my respect, they can’t be that upset” he rapped.

You can see Offset worship Cardi’s cakes below.
