Watch A Teaser For AMC's 'Dispatches From Elsewhere' Featuring André 3000

(AllHipHop News) The AMC network is set to begin airing the new anthology Dispatches from Elsewhere as a two-night premiere event on March 1 and March 2. Executive producer Jason Segal (Freaks and Geeks, Forgetting Sarah Marshall) stars on the show.
Additionally, the cast of Dispatches from Elsewhere includes Oscar and Emmy winner Sally Field, Academy Award nominee Richard E. Grant, and rising actress Eve Lindley. Grammy winner André "3000" Benjamin is part of the mystical drama as well.

AMC highlighted Benjamin's "Fredwynn" character in a 30-second teaser video. In the clip, the OutKast member tells the camera, "I know you think that I'm crazy and perhaps that is not untrue. But I'm also right." 
Dispatches from Elsewhere is a ten-hour series centered around "ordinary people who feel there’s something missing in their lives, but they can’t quite put their finger on what it is." The foursome stumbled onto a "puzzle hiding just behind the veil of everyday life" before discovering that the mystery is much deeper than they imagined.

Griselda Performs “Dr. Bird's” On 'The Tonight Show'

(AllHipHop News) There was a recent discussion happening in Hip Hop about which rap collective ruled 2019. Buffalo-bred Griselda was among the crews to get mentioned in that conversation.

Are Kylie & Travis Secretly Back Together Amid Breakup?

(AllHipHop Rumors) Without question Disney once again proved why it is the happiest place on earth as it brought Kylie and Travis together again...Like they never left.
The couple took their daughter to Disney World in Orlando on Wednesday and looked like one big, happy family. This wouldn’t be the first time we saw the two together after they broke up so I’m not surprised at their family getaway.
According to rumors, the couple are simply trying to do what’s best for their daughter and are no closer to getting back together. 
But of course they aren’t going to publicly announce their breakup. They kept their pregnancy with Stormi silent and don’t seem to like the public scrutiny when it comes to their personal life. 
What y’all think? 

Eminem Offers A Warning To “Gentle” Listeners About 'Music To Be Murdered By' Album

(AllHipHop News) Once again, Eminem became the "King of Controversy" with the release of his new album Music To Be Murdered By. Some people took issue with the content presented on the project.
For example, many Ariana Grande fans were disturbed by the fact that Em's "Unaccommodating" made a reference to the Pop singer's 2017 Manchester concert where 22 victims were killed in a terrorist attack. His "Darkness" music video also depicted the 2017 Las Vegas mass shooting.

Eminem responded to the backlash with a post on Twitter. He addressed the message to "gentle listener" before warning that Music To Be Murdered By may not be for the "easily offended or unnerved at the screams of bloody murder."
The Shady Records head wrote:

In today’s wonderful world murder has become so commonplace that we are a society obsessed and fascinated by it. I thought why not make a sport of it, and murder over beats? So before you jump the gun, please allow me to explain. This album was not made for the squeamish. If you are easily offended or unnerved at the screams of bloody murder, this may not be the collection for you. Certain selections have been designed to shock the conscience, which may cause positive action. Unfortunately, darkness has truly fallen upon us. So you see, murder in this instance isn’t always literal, nor pleasant. These bars are only meant for the sharpest knives in the drawer. For the victims of this album, may you rest peacefully. For the rest of you, please listen more closely next time. Goodnight!

(AllHipHop News) Megan Thee Stallion returned today with a new single titled "B.I.T.C.H." The track samples Bootsy Collin’s “I’d Rather Be With You" as well as Tupac Shakur's "Ratha Be Ya N*gga."
The leader of the Hotties spoke about the song with Zane Lowe for New Music Daily on Apple Music’s Beats 1 radio. While speaking with Lowe, Meg explained how 2Pac inspired her to create the "B.I.T.C.H." record.

"I had to respect the legends," said Thee Stallion. "I had just finished doing a show. I cannot remember what state I was in, but I had left my show and I was about to take a shower. I had hit my A&R and I'm like, 'I wanna remake "N.I.G.G.A." by Tupac.'"
She added, "I wrote a little bit of it on the plane, and then I wrote the rest of it in my next hotel room in the next state. And boom, I literally just went to record it, in Vegas like the next week after that. And here we go." 
Megan went on to talk about how she is currently working on her debut studio album. The 300 Entertainment recording artist confirmed she worked with Pharrell Williams. There will also be a Juicy J-produced song featuring SZA on the LP.

The superstar, who will also release a YouTube documentary releasing on Jan. 27, thanked his wife Hailey as well: “I love you with all my heart … and I’m so proud of us.” There is currently no release date for the album but we’re guessing it will arrive in the next few weeks.

Megan Thee Stallion is that “B.I.T.C.H.”
The Houston hottie launches the first track off her highly-anticipated debut album. Meg demands respect on the bossy anthem, which borrows from Tupac Shakur’s All Eyez on Me classic “Ratha Be Ya Ni**a.”
“Why you wanna play with me? / You know I’m undefeated,” she raps. “A real hot girl know how to keep a ni**a heated / You say you want respect / Well treat me how you wanna be treated / You told me keep it real but you don’t practice what you preachin’.”
“B.I.T.C.H.” arrives ahead of her debut, which will introduce her new alter ego Suga (“She’s besties with Tina Snow”). Fans can also expect a collaboration with Pharrell. The two were recently in the studio cooking up new music.
“I felt like my mixtapes were me flirting with my fans,” Meg told NPR last year. “I never wanted to do an album ’cause I was like, ‘Oh, that feel like marriage. That’s a commitment.’ But now, I’m ready to settle down with an album.”
Expect the heat wave to continue all year long. The Hot Girl is slated to perform at Coachella in April. She and Normani have also collaborated on “Diamonds” off the Birds of Prey soundtrack, which drops Feb. 7.

Juvahn Follows Coachella Performance With New Single “That's What I Thought”

Juvahn is a rising singer who hails from Sydney, Australia, and the 24-year-old has created a one-of-a-kind career.
Growing up singing in the choir, Juvahn wasn’t raised in the most stable home. She used the negative environment and music as the gas to fuel her move to the United States.
Once Juvahn landed in the U.S., she went to work and linked up with producer Divy and learned how to write songs properly.

With no vocal coach, or classical music training Juvahn has gained a fan base of over 100,000 fans around the globe.
.The release of her single, “That’s What I Thought” is an empowerment piece that Juvahn crafted after removing herself from a tough relationship.
“This is a song about pain from expectations that weren’t met. I was young and naive fresh out of high school, and I fell in love. The story didn’t end how I wanted it to," Juvahn said of her new song.
Backed by some of the biggest producers and songwriters, Juvahn is becoming a force to be reckoned with as her star rises in the music industry.
After her performance at Coachella, fans and industry execs raved about the song-writer. Music Connection.com stated: ..she holds abundant confidence and ambition within her music.”
"That’s What I Thought" holds the same energy. 

Wendy Williams And Kevin Hunter Divvy Up Valuable Assets After Divorce

(AllHipHop News) Wendy Williams is officially a single woman again, after her divorce from Kevin Hunter was reportedly finalized earlier this week.
The outspoken TV host, 55, filed for divorce last year after reports suggested Hunter's longtime mistress, Sharina Hudson, had given birth to his baby while Williams was battling substance abuse issues in a sober home.
She later confessed in an interview with Andy Cohen she was aware of “a lot of things” about Hunter's “double life” throughout their marriage, but added that his fathering of a child was "unforgivable."
A judge in New Jersey signed off on the divorce on Tuesday, with the accompanying documents detailing how many of the former couple's assets would be split.
Williams and Hunter will apparently split the money from the sale of their house in Livingston, New Jersey, while she keeps their house in Florida where her mother lives, and he keeps the proceeds from another house he sold in Morristown, New Jersey.
Despite Williams and Hunter being equal owners of their production company, he is said to be selling his share to the presenter.
This will make her the sole owner, but in order to have that title, she will have to pay him a lump sum and a severance package. Details of these payments have been kept confidential.
In addition, Williams will keep all of the former's couple's furniture, apart from one sculpture, while Hunter will reportedly be allowed to keep his Ferrari and Rolls-Royce cars. 

Kodak Black Sent To Kentucky After Prison Abuse Allegations

(AllHipHop News) Rap star Kodak Black has been transferred from a Miami prison, after complaining the guards at the facility were abusing him.
Kodak Black has been shipped off to Kentucky, where he's expected to serve out the rest of his two-year sentence for lying on a Federal gun application to buy guns.
The move will surely be welcomed by Kodak.
While no prison is an ideal place to be, Kodak labeled the Federal Detention Center in Miami a "hell-hole," filled with evil correctional officers trying to "strategically kill him."
Kodak declared he was being abused over his fame, as well as for a drug-induced fight with another inmate, where the rapper ended up assaulting a correctional officer.
Since that altercation on October 29th, 2019, Kodak Black says he's been targeted by the C.O's, who have allegedly denied the rap star his food, screwed with his outbound mail and denied him of his visitation rights.
Yesterday (January 22), Kodak's mom Marcelene Simmons revealed she hired noted Civil Rights attorney Benjamin Crump, who is threatening to sue the Federal Bureau Of Prisons over the allegations.
