6IX9INE Avoids the Wrath of NYC Streets, Films “Punani” With No Retaliation

For all the talk about what would happen to 6IX9INE when he got out, things were pretty quiet yesterday when the multi-colored rainbow emcee took to the streets to film his new video for "Punani." Now we would never condone violence on this site, but there was a whole lot of talk about what would happen to a snitch in NYC once 6IX9INE was released. It's still early and let's hope that nothing happens to the lil homie because we would NEVER want to see anyone get hurt, but what happened to all the "snitches get ditches" comments and all the stuff about "rats"? Have we entered a new era of Hip-Hop where the fans simply don't care about your background and the music is all that matters? Is this just entertainment so people are going to get a pass no matter what they do? The last thing we would want to see is someone catching a case and ruining their life for trying to prove a point hurting 6IX9INE. 6IX9INE has a family and no matter how much you hate him or love him, violence is not the answer. Anyways, what do you think of this video?

6ix9ine’s Girlfriend Jade Says She’s Pregnant

2 hours ago News
Is 6ix9ine about to be a father again?
The rapper’s girlfriend Jade is sparking pregnancy rumors with a post on social media. The model, whose real name is Rachel Wattley, posted a video wearing a hot pink jumpsuit and flaunting her body while playing Tekashi’s new song “PUNANI.”
“I’m pregnant,” she captioned Sunday’s post.
It’s unclear if Jade is actually pregnant or just trolling, but her sister Baddie G seemed to confirm the speculation. “My nephew,” she commented alongside a series of heart-eye emojis.

Jade has remained loyal to Tekashi throughout his highly-publicized racketeering case. She visited him in prison often and even has tattoos of the rapper on her body. In January, she defended his snitching by saying that he had to do what’s best for him.
This would be 6ix9ine’s second child. He already has 4-year-old daughter, Saraiyah Hernandez, with his ex Sara Molina. Jade also has a 5-year-old daughter from a previous relationship.

Tekashi completed his house arrest on Saturday and wasted no time hitting the streets. He shot a video for his new single “PUNANI” in Brooklyn on Sunday and released it online just hours later featuring a cameo from Jade.
“IM FREE !! … WHO SAID WE AINT OUTSIDEEEEEE,” he wrote in a post announcing the video. “BROOKLYN THIS MY TOWN NEW YORK THIS MY CITYYYY YOU HEAR ME!?!?! KING OF FUCKING NEW YORK YA COULD NEVA DO WHAT I DID AND BE OUTSIDE DUMMY!”

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian Take Family Trip to Save Marriage

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are trying to make it work.
The couple is reportedly hoping to save their marriage from divorce. Sources tell TMZ that Kim and Kanye have taken a private family vacation to try and work things out. Photos show Kanye and son Saint jumping on board a private plane in Wyoming Sunday. Their destination is unknown but they decided to take the trip when Kim visited Kanye last week.

Their relationship has been on the rocks as of late. Kim and Kanye haven’t seen much of each other for months and things took a turn following Kanye’s bizarre presidential rally and his Twitter rants, where he claimed that Kim cheated on him with Meek Mill. He has been spending time at his ranch and Kim has been taking care of their four children.
The two had an emotional reunion in Wyoming last week after Kim tried to get her husband treatment for his bipolar disorder. The family vacation will mark one of the first trips they’ve taken in a long time. They hadn’t spent much time together outside family birthdays and holidays.
Kim is “torn” over divorcing Kanye, but is hopeful they can keep their family together. “The last thing she wants is to be divorced with four kids,” a source tells PEOPLE. “She knows that she will be fine financially, but her concerns are the kids and the partnership. She is moving towards a divorce, but who knows if she will actually sign papers.”
The couple, who has been married for six years, had reportedly been discussing a split prior to Kanye’s Twitter meltdown. “She loves Kanye and she thinks of him as the love of her life,” adds the source. “But she doesn’t know what to do.”
Kanye seemingly wants to repair their relationship as well. He apologized to his wife on Twitter for his hurtful comments. “To Kim I want to say I know I hurt you. Please forgive me,” he tweeted. “Thank you for always being there for me.”

Akademiks Exposes Meek Mill In Explosive Rant Saying He’s Not Hot Anymore: “I Hear You Might Not Drop A Record In 2020 – Roc Nation Put You On Mute”

Rap personality Akademiks really, really, really doesn’t like Meek Mill. The hip-hop blogger went online this past weekend to personally get at the Maybach Music Group rap star.Akademiks Exposes Meek MillIn a new Instagram Live rant, Ak didn’t hold back on going off on Meek Mill. The fellow Philadelphia native shut down Mill and how he views himself in the rap game.“You can get at me right now – I hear you might not drop a record in 2020, might be 2021. Why? Because you’re looking bad now – you thought you could cancel me. Cancel me? N*gga, you’re out of your f*cking mind, n*gga. Aight? If you got beef with 6ix9ine, PNB Rock got beef with 6ix9ine, me and PNB talked recently about some other sh*t – if y’all got beef with 6ix9ine, handle your beef with 6ix9ine, brah. … But don’t try to angle it at me. So Meek, you ain’t canceling a f*cking thing. I want everybody who is in comments section who is f*cking with me, go to Meek Mill and ask him, ‘Didn’t you cancel Akademiks? What the f*ck is happening because he’s still talking about you.’ Meek, I’m so offended that you thought you were that n*gga. I’m so offended, bro. By the way, Uzi’s the hottest n*gga in Philly. Me and Uzi talked for a good while yesterday – me and Uzi talked about some funny sh*t – Uzi, you’re a rockstar.” [embedded content][embedded content]Akademiks exposes Meek Mill in explosive rant.Akademiks also questioned just how much of a superstar Meek is in 2020. The blogger even went as far as to suggest Mill can’t drop an album because Roc Nation has him on lock.“But Meek, you’re not that n*gga. You bullied Melly, you can bully these little n*ggas, I won’t you on an industry level to bully me. You can’t do it. You cannot do it. … I’m not challenging Meek on no street level – he thinks he’s that n*gga. Meek, you cannot do anything on an industry level to Akademiks. When you think you can, talk to me – otherwise, I heard Roc Nation put you on mute. Put you on mute. You know what you should of done? You should have gassed up Freddie Gibbs – he got more money making t-shirts dissing me than his album. I don’t care – you though, thinking you could cancel – you’re unimportant. You think this is 2015, or 2016 or even 2014. But Baby is what you are now. I f*ck with Baby. What are you gonna do?”High-Key DetailsIn early July 2020, Ak went to his social media channels to address Meek’s issues with him. Instead of losing his cool, he questioned Mill’s perceived inability to balance his fight for prison reform and rapping about illegal activities.“You’re a walking contradiction. You can’t decide if you want to be a street n*gga one minute or if you want to fight for prison reform the next. Your music glorifies all types of gangster activity that actually helps put Black men in jail but to keep it real, you’re like, ‘Nah man. Let’s focus on things that’ll get them out.’ You got mad energy for me but you had no energy when you saw Nicki Minaj’s man Mr. Petty in the store. All I’m saying is put out music.

4 hours ago Music Videos New Music
DaBaby is not letting up.
While “Rockstar” remains atop the charts, the prolific North Carolina rapper is readying a deluxe edition of his album Blame It on Baby. On the eve of its release, he has dropped a video for one of his 10 new tracks, “PEEP HOLE.”
The clip, which was shot during DaBaby’s recent 24-hour trip to L.A., finds Baby in beast mode. The Grammy-nominated MC, who was recently nominated for three MTV VMAs, shows off his drip in Burberry shorts and Gucci bucket hats while boasting about his dominance (“I’m always on the charts like I’m Drizzy”) and reflecting on his come-up.
“I got 15 beds, we ain’t layin’ on the floor / I done hit a lot of freak hoes,” raps the Billion Dollar Baby CEO. “Ni**as guess it’s safe, safe for you to say that I’ma hoe / I’m out the game, I’m not a player anymore.”
The deluxe edition of Blame It on Baby drops Tuesday featuring 10 new tracks. The original album was released in April and spawned the hit “Rockstar” with Roddy Ricch, which remains No. 1 for a seventh week on the Billboard Hot 100.

Here Are the Final First Week Sales for Logic ‘No Pressure’ Album

UPDATE 2 (Aug. 3): Logic’s farewell album No Pressure has moved a total of 221k copies in the first week with 172k out of that coming from pure sales, driven by huge demand for his merch and album bundles.

--advertisement--

UPDATE (July 28): The first week projections for the album have nearly doubled, now aiming at 150-170k copies with about 100-120k coming from pure sales. This is due to the various merch bundles being available a couple of days after the album’s release which could not be factored in initially.

Previous story (July 25):
This Friday, Logic released his latest album No Pressure and announced to the world that it would be his final one.
The album features almost no guest appearances except for a couple of contributions from folks like Juicy J and Toro y Moi. The first week sales projections are now out. No Pressure (Def Jam/Visionary Music Group) is set to move 75-85k copies in the first week with about 17-21k out of those coming from pure sales, reports HDD.

With this total, Logic would be hoping for a top 3 debut on the Billboard 200 chart this week. The top spot will be going to Taylor Swift’s new album folklore which is on course to sell a whopping 650k in the opening week.

In a new in-depth interview, Logic confirmed that No Pressure would be his last studio album but he will continue to be involved in other ventures like his record label, Bobby Boy Records.

Jay-Z & Yo Gotti Pressure Healthcare Provider To Terminate Relationship With Parchman Prison

(AllHipHop News) For months, Shawn "Jay-Z" Carter and Mario "Yo Gotti" Mims have been bringing attention to the inhumane conditions at Parchman Farm prison. The Roc Nation-affiliated rappers backed a lawsuit filed by over 200 incarcerated individuals in Mississippi correctional facilities. Jay-Z and Yo Gotti's public pressure played a role in Centene terminating its multimillion-dollar partnership with Parchman and the Mississippi Department of Corrections. Critics hold the healthcare provider partially responsible for the 53 deaths inside Mississippi prisons - 25 at Parchman - since December 2019.

"We hope that Centene’s decision to end its relationship with the Mississippi Department of Corrections sends a clear message to Governor Tate Reeves – it’s time to invest in the health and well-being of the people in your prisons," states Marcy Croft, Team ROC attorney.
Croft continues, "There is no excuse for the 53 deaths across the Mississippi prison system over the past several months, many of which were preventable. We will not stop until the incarcerated receive consistent and competent medical care, especially now with the COVID-19 crisis. This must be a priority.”
Lawyers and medical experts supported by Team Roc, the philanthropic arm of Roc Nation, uncovered the abhorrent situation inside Parchman. Photographs and firsthand accounts revealed men in the penitentiary were subject to undercooked or spoiled food, foul-smelling water, dilapidated restrooms, flooded floors, exposed wires, corrupt officers, and insufficient medical care.

Wyclef Jean Explains Why He Wants To Take Part In A 'Verzuz' With Will.i.am

(AllHipHop News) The next Verzuz event will feature Rick Ross and 2 Chainz. After those two southerners go head-to-head on August 6, which two acts will be next to showcase their catalog?Wyclef Jean of the Fugees seems to be putting out a request to go against Will.i.am of the Black Eyed Peas. The People's Party with Talib Kweli podcast spoke to Jean about Verzuz.
"I was approached, definitely," said Wyclef about the music series curated by Swizz Beatz and Timbaland. He added, "The person who resembles me the most, like in the background with the studio that I fully know that they do, is probably Will.i.am for multiple reasons."

The Grammy winner went on to talk about Jimmy Iovine who was the head of Interscope Records at the time of the Fugees' rise. According to Jean, Iovine viewed Will.i.am and the Black Eyed Peas as his label's version of Wyclef and the Fugees. 
"My manager was David Sonnenberg, and Jimmy Iovine was obsessed with how he is going to get a new Fugee. Then once we left David Sonnenberg, Will.i.am became a new Wyclef for him," Jean told Kweli and co-host Jasmin Leigh.
The Carnival album creator continued, "The reason I say Will is because Will, strategically, was that nerd like me. He's the guy behind the schemes. He's incredible. For me, it's not about hit songs. It's more like the mechanicals, the little things that people don't see. I think they'd probably be shocked with the amount of information."

According to Billboard, No Pressure got a significant boost in sales from merchandise/album bundles that were only offered for one week. Of the 221K total, 172K units were from pure sales. 
Juice WRLD’s posthumous album, Legends Never Die, slipped to #3 on the latest Billboard 200. Pop Smoke’s posthumous album, Shoot for the Stars Aim for the Moon, fell to #4.
