Ye’s tweet that settled it all included a picture of what appeared to be the new Twitter CEO Elon Musk being sprayed with water.

“Let’s always remember this as my final tweet #ye24,” Ye posted.

Musk didn’t take Ye’s post too lightly, and responded with a simple statement — “That is Fine.” Shortly after, Ye’s Twitter account was removed.

As the fallen bromance between the two billionaires settle, Musk also adds that Ye’s account was suspended because it violated the platform’s rules on inciting violence.

“I tried my best, ” Musk tweeted. “Despite that, he again violated our rule against incitement to violence. Account will be suspended.”

Game Can’t Get Over Kanye West’s Elon Musk Bromance

In 2021, West Coast rap veteran Game stated how impressed he was by Kanye West‘s networking skills. With hip-hop’s billionaire fashionista flexing his friendship goals with tech entrepreneur Elon Musk, the Los Angeles rapper wondered aloud what life must be like for Yeezy.

Game Has A Crazy Idea For Kanye + Elon Musk

At the time, Kanye West counted Elon Musk as one of his good friends, and Game randomly wondered recently if Kanye could use his bond with Musk to explore space travel.

“When you go to your boys house and you’re both wearing orange”

“I’m high af but I was just thinkin, this n*gga Kanye could text Elon Musk & borrow a rocket.. #DREAMBIG“

Kanye’s Nike Air Yeezy Kicks Sell For Almost $2 Million

This is why Kanye stays rich. The Grammy-winning rapper’s Nike Air Yeezy 1 prototype shoes set a new world sales sneaker record when they sold for $1.8 million at an auction.

Beyond being a shoe designed and worn by Kanye West, this specific Air Yeezy 1 prototype served as a kind of unofficial launch of West’s serious sneaker ambitions. Although he’d dabbled in fashion before, even designing a shoe for Louis Vuitton, Kanye’s Air Yeezy collaboration with Nike was an unparalleled success. (Rolling Stone)

Kanye West Nike Yeezy Protocol Estimated To Sell For $1M+

Earlier this month, it was announced that a Nike Air Yeezy 1 prototype from 2008 is expected to sell for over $1 million. This was Ye’s first sneaker with Nike, which he notably abandoned for bigger and better things at Adidas in 2013 and yes – he actually wore this specific pair.

“This pair is critical to the development of the Yeezy franchise, which has become one of the most important sneaker and lifestyle brands in history,” said Brahm Wachter, Sotheby’s Head of Streetwear and Modern Collectables. “Debuted on-stage at the Grammys in 2008, the sneakers set off waves in the sneaker community as people tried to identify the mysterious pair. Afterwards, we saw a series of collaborations between Kanye and Nike, and then later the birth of his line with adidas.” (Highsnobiety)

Kanye West Spotted Wearing Nike Sneakers + Not Yeezy Kicks

In December 2019, the G.O.O.D. Music boss raised eyebrows after getting spotted wearing a pair of non-Adidas kicks. Despite having massive success with his Yeezy foot apparel brand, a pic emerged showing Mr. West returning to his sneaker roots and donning Nikes.

Metro Boomin – Heroes & Villains

Metro Boomin’s newest album, Heroes & Villains, features at least one of every music listener’s hip-hop fave. From the new to the not-so-new, H&V is an Avengers-style collective that features Gunna, Future, A$AP Rocky, John Legend, and more.

The album leaves a bittersweet taste with one of its songs, “Feel The Fiyaaaah,” which features the recently deceased Takeoff. It is also another chance for fans to listen to something new by the fan favorite.

Nas feat. 21 Savage – One Mic, One Gun

“One Mic, On Gun” is a bop. The hot new song brings together rappers from different generations. Moreso, it follows after the media misinterpreted 21’s comments about the Grammy Award-winning Nas. He may have never said Nas was irrelevant, but Boosie sure said Jay-Z is.

Though not explicitly stated, the song’s title is a throwback to one of Nas’ many classics. “One Mic.”

Hit play and enjoy.

Saucy Santana – Bop Bop

“Bop Bop” lives up to its name. It is a clean, energetic flow that would be rocked in many nightclubs or gyms as you push for that extra mile on the treadmill.

Saucy Santana also dropped visuals for the new song, which reveals flashy lights and women in a club scene.

Akon – TT Freak

Konvicted, Trouble, and Freedom enjoyed critical success and Akon built on it to gain traction for his many interests, including building a tech city in his home country, Senegal.

His new album, TT Freak, is a 7-song, no feature collaboration between his label, Konvict Music, and social media application TikTok.

 Hit play and ride the wave..

A$AP Rocky – Shittin’ Me

It has been an eventful year for A$AP Rocky. He became a father, headlined Rolling Loud, launched his design studio, and has now released a single, “Shittin’ Me.”

With this burst of activities, maybe Rocky, like his wife, Rihanna, is ready to focus on making music again.

Give it a listen.

Cordae – Feel It In The Air

Cordae is back with a new song. Let us know what you think of it.

Youngeen Ace – Survivor Of The Trenches

Four albums after his career-defining 2020 album, Don Dada, Youngeen Ace is still here. Now, he is here with the fifth and second of the year, Survivor Of The Trenches.

Before Monday’s trial (Dec.5), here’s a brief timeline of Megan Thee Stallion and Tory Lanez’s rocky relationship:

2022

In March, the pressure mounted on Tory Lanez after the DA’s office announced they had “substantial evidence” that supports Megan’s claims.  Meanwhile, Megan said she was facing death threats.

2020

At the beginning of the year, rap crooner Tory Lanez lived it up to the fullest. The hip-hop entertainer shared an epic shot of himself partying alongside his fellow music star. Also, shortly after the pandemic, Tory and the Houston Hottie weren’t taking social distancing seriously.

The rap heavyweights had social media’s full attention after linking up for random “friendship goals” moments. In June, Megan unloaded a batch of new content.

Notably, she shared a pic of herself rocking matching yellow Savage X Fenty gear. The photo received praise and major appreciation from rap star Tory Lanez and Power actress La La Anthony.

That following month, Canadian hip-hop star Tory Lanez was reportedly the man responsible for nearly killing Megan Thee Stallion. New reports claim the rap crooner pulled the trigger inside an SUV with his publicized hip-hop pal.

Later that year, the “Savage” artist wasn’t staying silent. The hip-hop star spoke out on the importance of protecting Black women. Meg also shared that she is not afraid of getting criticized or victim-blamed for the near-death shooting allegedly at the hands of estranged friend Tory Lanez.

Tory Lanez is now set to go on trial next week for the alleged shooting of Houston rapper Megan Thee Stallion. This week, a hearing took place to select the jury in preparation for the upcoming trial.
