Waka Flocka Flame Wiped His Bare Ass With A Donald Trump Jersey

Waka was midway through his set, when he noticed someone in the crowd rocking a Donald Trump jersey.

He promptly asked the fan to give him the Donald Trump basketball jersey he was wearing.

“That’s a Trump jersey, right?,” Waka Flocka asked the concertgoer.

Once he was in possession of the jersey, Waka dropped his pants, and proceeded to wipe his ass with the jersey.

After his ceremonial ass wiping, Waka threw the jersey down, and triumphantly raised his fist in victory, to the crowd’s delight

Fat Joe Signs To Roc Nation

 

After signing The L.O.X. and Yo Gotti in December, Jay Z‘s label Roc Nation has announced this morning in a press release that it has signed Fat Joe. His upcoming joint album with Remy Ma Plata o Plomo, will be his first release with the Roc.
This is another step past Joe and Hov’s ’00s beef, which was publicly put to rest when Jigga appeared on the “All the Way Up” remix last year.

Here’s what Joe had to say during a 2016 interview with us.

“The moral to the story is that there was bad blood between Roc-A-Fella and Terror Squad for a long time and the next thing I know I seen Nas with Jay Z and there was peace. But it left me in the outskirts. He didn’t pick up the phone like, ‘Yo, I’m about to squash this.’ I would’ve told him go get money. I’m all about getting money, so I would’ve told him go get money. Now me and these n***** got beef because I was repping you hard.”

 

Tupac Biopic ‘All Eyez on Me’ Lands at Lionsgate, Confirms Release Date

 

The film will be released June 16, the late rapper’s birthday. All Eyez on Me, the long-gestating biopic of rapper Tupac Shakur, is finally on its way to theaters. Lionsgate’s Summit Entertainment has acquired the U.S. rights to the Morgan Creek Entertainment film that follows the life of the iconic ’90s rapper, and has set it for release June 16 — the day that would have marked Shakur’s 46th birthday.

The film chronicles his rise to superstardom as a hip-hop artist, actor, poet and activist, as well as his imprisonment and controversial time at Death Row Records. Shakur sold more than 75 million records worldwide, with his fourth studio album, 1996’s All Eyez on Me, selling more than 10 million copies. Shakur, who was killed in Las Vegas at the age of 25, will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on April 7 this year.

Benny Boom directed the film, which stars newcomer Demetrius Shipp Jr. as Shakur. Danai Gurira, Kat Graham, Dominic Santana, Jamal Woolard, Keith Robinson, Lauren Cohan and Hill Harper also star. The film is produced by Morgan Creek’s James G. Robinson and David Robinson, along with Program Pictures’ LT Hutton.

All Eyes on Me started out on its long journey back in 2011 when Morgan Creek teamed with Emmett/Furla/Oasis to make the film, and hired Antoine Fuqua to direct. Fuqua eventually left the project, and John Singleton signed on. He also later left, and eventually Boom, who has directed a slew of music videos for hip-hop stars, signed on.

In October 2015, the film faced another hurdle when Emmett/Furla/Oasis filed a lawsuit $10-million lawsuit against Morgan Creek, saying the company breached its agreement by selecting a lead actor and setting a budget and production schedule without Emmett/Furla/Oasis’ approval (the case is ongoing and has been paused pending an appeal of a decision). Open Road was previously signed on to distribute the film.

The new deal with Lionsgate was negotiated for Morgan Creek by David Robinson and Jessica VanderYacht; David Nochimson of Ziffren Brittenham; and Glen Mastroberte of Latham & Watkins. For Lionsgate, the deal was negotiated by Jason Constantine, Eda Kowan, John Biondo and Elizabeth Hopkins.

Lollapalooza Expands to Paris, Reveals Lineup

Atmosphere during Lollapalooza 2014.

 

Lollapalooza, a longtime Chicago staple, has slowly expanded its reach to countries such as Germany, Argentina, Chile and more. The most recent addition to the list is France, as the festival has announced its latest location will be Hippodrome de Longchamp in Paris. This marks the sixth country the music festival will enter

Along with the news came the festival’s lineup, which boasts top-tier talent such as The Weeknd, along with the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Lana Del Rey — both of whom headlined Lollapalooza Chicago last summer. Other notable performers include Imagine Dragons, Alt-J, Marshmello, Glass Animals, and many more. View the full lineup here.

While Lollapalooza Chicago dominated the city for four days last year (and will again this coming year), Lollapalooza Paris will take place on two days: July 22 and 23. Tickets to Lollapalooza Paris go on sale Thursday.

David Bowie, Rihanna, Little Mix Score Nominations for 2017 Brit Awards

With three nominations each, Little Mix, Rihanna and Skepta are the frontrunners leading up to the 2017 Brit Awards, while the late British legend David Bowie and Canadian rapper Drake are in the chasing pack of artists with two nods apiece.

Nominations for this year’s awards were announced at a ceremony Saturday night (Jan. 14) and for the first time were broadcast in a primetime slot on free-to-air TV station ITV.

Little Mix, the pop act whose fourth album Glory Days is the current No. 1 on the Official U.K. Albums Chart (and has held top spot for five weeks), is up British group and their hit “Shoutout To My Ex” is in the hunt for British single and British video

Rihanna’s hattrick of nominations includes a chance in the categories for British single and British video for her collaboration with Calvin Harris, “This Is What You Came For,” and the Barbadian singing star features in a loaded category for international female solo artist along with Sia, Christine and the Queens and the Knowles sisters, Beyoncé and Solange

Skepta’s 2016 Mercury Music Prize album Konnichiwa is in the running for the prestigious Brits Album of the Year honor, though it faces stiff competition from David Bowie’s Mercury-nominated final album Blackstar, The 1975’s I Like It When You Sleep…, , Kano’s Made in the Manor and Michael Kiwanuka’s Love & Hate.

The grime artist (real name Joseph Adenuga) is also mentioned for British breakthrough artist and he makes the shortlist for British male solo artist alongside Craig David, David Bowie, Kano and Michael Kiwanuka.

There’s a posthumous nod for Canadian songsmith Leonard Cohen (best international male artist) and British superstar singer Adele is nominated for a solitary trophy, for British artist video of the year for “(Send My Love (To Your New Lover).”

Rag ‘N’ Bone Man performed at the weekend’s nominations ceremony and was later presented with the Brits Critics’ Choice Award, one of two awards announced in advance of the gala. The other, the Brits Icon Award, belongs to Robbie Williams.

The BRITs, the U.K. recording industry’s flagship awards ceremony, will be held Feb. 22 at London’s O2 Arena. Little Mix, The 1975 and Emeli Sande head the first batch of performers confirmed for the big night.

Organizers shook-up its voting panel for next month’s gala after the 2016 show was overshadowed by controversy over the lack of black nominees.

When a string of artists criticized the BRITs for failing to represent the diversity of the British music scene and the issue began trending on social media, the BPI conducted a review of its voting panel and subsequently invited 700 new members from across the U.K. industry to help pick the nominees and award winners.

Fans have until this Friday to have their say on the two public-voted categories, British artist and video of the year.
Canadian crooner Michael Buble was previously announced as host, but his participation is unclear after his son was diagnosed with cancer last year, prompting Buble to cancel all immediate music biz engagements.

Anti-Flag on Trump & His Supporters: ‘He’s a Con Man, and They Got Taken’

The members of Anti-Flag are sharpening their lyrical swords for the impending Donald Trump presidency — but they’re a little surprised to be doing so.

“We’re working on a new record, and it’s definitely taking a turn of direction I didn’t expect,” Justin Sane, frontman and co-founder of the populist-minded Pittsburgh punk rock troupe, tells Billboard. “We were kind of gearing up to take on Hillary Clinton. We were taking on Barack Obama on our last few records. The very first song on our last record (“Fabled World” from 2015’s American Spring) was about the failure of the Obama administration — the deportation of people, the ramp-up of the prison-industrial complex, continuing the Bush military doctrine. So we weren’t easy on Obama and we kind of believed with Hillary Clinton it was going to be more of the same. We weren’t going to just roll over and take that. Now that it’s going to be Donald Trump, it takes it to another level.”

Donald Trump during an election night rally on Nov. 9, 2016 in New York City.

Sane, in fact, is anticipating he’ll be addressing topics that he didn’t expect would be part of the discourse in 2017. “I can’t believe that I’m probably going to be writing songs about nuclear disarmament,” Sane says. “I never believed I’d actually have to be protesting the ramping up of nuclear weapons in the way Donald Trump is talking about. But it’s one of the issues he’s putting on the table, so it’s like ‘here we go again.'” And Sane is confident Trump and his administration will offer plenty of other meat for his group’s material.

“He’s just surrounding himself with corporate Washington insiders,” Sane notes. “He said he was going to drain the swamp, but none of the people he’s bringing into his administration… they’re all corporate lobbyists and insiders. A lot of the people he’s bringing in are diametrically opposed to workers’ rights, and of course that’s a disaster for poor and working people. There are a lot of people thinking he was going to be on their side, and I definitely understand that. He very effectively campaigned that way. But unfortunately, I think he’s a con man, and they got taken.”

Sane doesn’t expect Anti-Flag to be the only band finding inspiration, either. “It’ll definitely be a time where I think political music will probably get a little bit of a boost,” he says. “Art and music often reflect how people are feeling, and I think right now there’s an increase in people feeling a lot of distress and concern about where things are headed.”

Sane and Anti-Flag are seeing that as well at the band’s shows since Trump’s election, which have become a sort of haven for kindred spirit. “Night after night people are telling me, ‘I came here tonight because I wanted to be around some people who are concerned about the direction of the country,'” Sane says. “They want to know that they’re going to be in a place where there was going to be some support and solace for the kinds of things that they’re feeling right now. I think people are feeling even more out of control than ever. I’m getting a sense that people are just generally trying to treat each other well and treat each other respectfully and have that baseline of just being good people. I think people feel that’s something that’s going to be absent here in the next four years, which is really distressing for a lot of people.”

Sane not surprisingly predicts Anti-Flag’s next album “could end up sounding like a more angry record, maybe than we would’ve originally intended to make,” but nothing’s in stone yet. “Ultimately I just want to make the best record we can,” he says. “I think that for as much as the politics about all this are going to matter, writing the best songs we can and playing music is something that helps me keep my sanity — even when we’re doing songs that are political in nature and about difficult problems. So we want the music to be good, not just angry.” He’s hoping for a fall release, but Sane also doesn’t want to rush into topical commentary without giving issues some time to develop.

“We’re not going to put out anything too fast,” he says. “We want to feel like we can make a critique that’s relevant to what’s going on. I think there’s a bigger realm of issues we can address right off the bat, like the fact that we don’t want to see hate speech and bullying normalized, which I think was part of the campaign. There won’t be any shortage of things to write about — that much I’m sure of.”

Hilarious: YG Offers To Perform ‘F*ck Donald Trump’ For $4 Million At The President-Elect’s Inauguration

 

Donald Trump’s team has been having a difficult time finding artists willing to perform at his presidential election on January 20.

No need to worry though because Compton rapper and 4Hunnid Recordsboss, YG, has hilariously offered to perform his song “F*ck Donald Trump” for a hefty fee.

“I’ll perform F*ck Donald Trump at his inauguration for $4,000,000,” YG tweeted Saturday, January 14.

The song, which features Nipsey Hussle, appears on YG’s 2016 album titled “Still Brazy.” The track accuses Trump of being a racist and calls on people of all colors to stop his presidential bid by getting out to vote.

“I like white folks, but I don’t like you/ All the n!ggas in the hood wanna fight you/ Surprised El Chapo ain’t tried to snipe you/ Surprised the Nation of Islam ain’t tried to find you/ Have a rally out in L.A., we gon’ f*ck it up/ Home of the Rodney King riot, we don’t give a f*ck/ Black students, ejected from your rally, what?/ I’m ready to go right now, your racist a$$ did too much/ I’m ’bout to turn Black Panther/ Don’t let Donald Trump win, that n!gga cancer/ He too rich, he ain’t got the answers/ He can’t make decisions for this country, he gon’ crash us/ No, we can’t be a slave for him/ He got me appreciatin’ Obama way more,” YG raps.

Trump will be our next president, but YG is still proudly protesting.

Drake’s Promises “Incredible New Features” For Disappointed U.K. Fans After Tour Dates Postponed

Drake’s fans in the UK are crying foul, after the rapper announced he was rescheduling some dates on his highly anticipated “Boy Meets World” tour.

According to a statement by O2 Arena, Drake’s three dates in the UK (January 26, 28, 30) are being pushed back until March.

Fans with tickets to the January shows must wait until March (20, 22, and 23), to see their favorite rapper.

Representatives for the O2 Arena said Drake blamed the delay on production setbacks

“Drake wanted to create a special experience for fans in Europe and the UK so he added some incredible new features to an already spectacular production,” the statement reads. “Unfortunately due to unforeseen production it will need a little more time to be ready. Drake can’t wait to see all his fans so he can deliver an amazing and memorable experience.”

So far, the rest of the “Boy Meets World tour” which will hit 35 cities in Europe is expected to go on without any other issues

Future Pops Up The Falcons Game and The Seahawks Lose

Atlanta rapper Future popped up at the big playoff game between the Seattle Seahawks and the Atlanta Falcons.

The rap star’s appearance is notable, because the Seahawks’ quarterback is Russell Williams, the husband of Ciara and Future’s ex-fiancé.

Prior to the Falcons’ win, Future’s fans were calling on the team to blast his music before and during the game, to annoy Russell Wilson.

The Falcons’ coach, Dan Quinn, was eventually forced to make a statement on the matter,shooting down any chance of playing the rapper’s music to gain an edge over the Seahawks.

The controversy didn’t stop Future from popping up at the Georgia Dome, to watch the Falcons beat the Seahawks 36-20

DJ Khaled Gets His Own Retro Video Game With Champ Sports’ ‘Secure the Bag’

Major Keys aren’t just for the real world. On Friday (Jan 13), Champs Sports released the new retro video game Secure the Bag, promoting the new DJ Khaled and New England heritage brand Timberland boot collaboration.

In the game, Khaled is tasked with making it to the boot release in time on a jet ski going through three levels: Prehistoric Miami, Viking Miami and Future Miami

          

The desktop and mobile game features Khaled zooming through various terrain, knocking out villains or, the now-popularized term coined by Khaled, “they.” Players collect points in the game along the way and try not to lose all of their lives — as Khaled often says, “Don’t play yourself”

       

Not about child’s play but no stranger to fan love and inspiration, Khaled recently teamed up with GetSchooled.com to launch an ad campaign encouraging students to stay in school and get good grades. In a short clip, Khaled gives keys to living healthy: Start your day with a quick meditation, speak words of affirmation to yourself, and set realistic goals and achieve them
