If Rae Sremmurd Have It Their Way We’re Getting A Childish Gambino Collab Album

Fans are still waiting on the long-delayed Childish Gambino and Chance the Rapper mixtape, and now Rae Sremmurd are throwing their hat into the collaboration ring. In an interview with Billboard, the rap group described the potential sound of a Sremmurd and Donald Glover project.

“I got a laptop with about 1,000 bangers,” said Swae Lee. “I know Childish Gambino got about 2,000 or 3,000, who knows? We’re gonna come together and make a whole project like, “Redbone” and “Black Beatles.”

This week, Glover announced he is embarking on a North American tour with Rae Sremmurd starting in September. Later in the Billboard interview, Slim Jxmmi reveals how the two brothers connected with the Atlanta rapper.

“Childish Gambino is a cool guy, we linked overseas in a studio,” said Jxmmi. “I DJ’d one of his house parties one time. He’s just a cool guy and we got the same type of vibe, so you can expect good music to come out of this. It’s natural. We don’t gotta act, we can just be ourselves. He’s himself everywhere he goes, and we’re gonna be ourselves everywhere we go — so it’s just gonna be like two different shows, we from two different places.”

At this point it looks like Glover might have to put off retirement to fit in all of these projects.


Steve Aoki & Lil Uzi Vert Are All About The Coins In “Been Ballin”

Nothing makes my heart race faster than TRL alums uniting to create something legendary. Steve Aoki and Lil Uzi Vert have done just that with their latest single “Been Ballin” and now there’s an official music video to capture the vibe of this dynamic collab.

Given that the song is about the perks of being a moneymaker, the visual shows exactly what the artists like to spend their paper on: all gold everything. (Is it just me or am I starting to see a theme here?) The track is featured on the producer’s latest album Kolony. Get a glimpse at all the coins and chains in the video below.


Diplo Whips Up A Tasty Collab With Lil Yachty & Santigold On “Worry No More”

At this point, are you even surprised when you see pizza in a visual involving Lil Yachty? It’s all I ever expect from the rapper now, but he decided to switch it up in the music video for Diplo’s new single “Worry No More.” This time, he takes on the role of a professional baker with help from cake master Santigold who is also featured on the bouncy track. Any worries that I might have had previously evaporated the moment I spotted the first stack of cakes on the table—I really need to stop watching stuff like this when I’m hungry.

I am highly aware that Lot$ O’ Cake isn’t a real bakery, but Diplo should totally consider opening a pop up because I would literally buy all of the treats that they made in this video. This delicious track is fresh off the Mad Decent producer’s California EP which is slated to drop on March 23. Try not to get the grumbles while looking at all the sweets in the video below.


Rick Ross Has Reportedly Been Hospitalized

UPDATE (3/2/18, 6:24 p.m. ET): Rick Ross is potentially on life support, reports TMZ. According to the site’s sources, a machine is ”taking over the function of his heart and lungs.”

On Thursday (March 1), Rick Ross was reportedly taken to the hospital after being found unresponsive in his Miami home, according to TMZ.

At this time, it is not officially confirmed why Ross might be hospitalized. TMZ also reports that “a family member strongly denied Rick was hospitalized.”

Ross has faced health complications in the past, like the two seizures he experienced in 2011. On a 2016 episode of The Dr. Oz Show, Ross discussed the experience, via Rap-Up.

“One day, I was on a flight and, I just remember my buddy coming to get me, like, ‘Get up, homie, you just had a seizure. Let’s go. We got to get off the plane,’” said Ross. “And I’m like, ‘No… I don’t feel like I had one.’ So I actually got on the phone, called my private jet guy, 45 minutes later, after getting off a commercial flight, I was aboard in a private plane. I boarded a private plane. An hour into the flight, soon as I fell asleep, I had another seizure.”

Since then, Ross has touted his healthy lifestyle. He lost 75 pounds after the seizures and proudly showed off his specific brand of CrossFit named RossFit. Last year, he told People how he kept his weight down.

“I’ve just really been eating a lot better, working out, staying RossFit, and still enjoying myself,” said Rozay. “I still eat my Wingstop, I still go to Checkers for a burger, but as a whole, the late-night steaks, and in the studio it was really easy for me to go crazy from 11 [p.m.] to 4 a.m. I just cut that out.”

People throughout the entertainment industry took to social media to share their support for Ross.

We will continue to update this story as more information becomes available.


Lil Yachty Is A Master Pastry Chef In New Diplo Video

After devoting his recent music video excursions to letting DRAM be dapper amid beautiful desert panorama, being a perfect piano and dance partner for MØ, and literally chilling atop a Zamboni with Tory Lanez and Cashmere Cat, Diplo has done the natural thing for his latest: given the spotlight over to Lil Yachty and Santigold.

In the new Daniel Pappas-directed clip for “Worry No More,” the pair are pastel-clad star bakers, sprinkling flour and sugar and making the most resplendent-looking doughnuts and pastries you can imagine.

Behind them at one point lies a tray of doughnuts decorated with all sorts of miracle items, like cereal bits, cookies, and of course, frosting. I am hungry as I write this. (Also, someone please inform Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood that this video exists.)

The song itself is as colorful and sweet as the video, and on the chorus, Yachty delivers a good mantra that we should all remember as we march into the weekend and beyond: “So catch me if you can / I’m chasing after my dreams.”

“Worry No More” is reportedly set to be included on Diplo’s upcoming California EP. For his sake, I hope more pastry-themed music vids lie in all of our futures.


Offset And Ric Flair Are Rolex Wearin’ Son Of A Guns In New Video

Nature Boy is back. Today (March 1), Offset, 21 Savage, and Metro Boomin dropped the video to “Ric Flair Drip” featuring the legendary wrestler himself. The Shomi Patwary-directed video is an epic display of opulence and decadence, much like the platinum blonde star it pays homage to. Throughout the video, Offset, Ric Flair, and Metro Boomin ride in a Rolls-Royce, stroll through an enormous mansion, and show off watches that might make you go blind.

Migos are wrestling fanatics and have peppered references to the sport throughout their career. Offset’s famous “Woo, Woo, Woo, Woo,” adlib during the intro of “Bad and Boujee” is eerily similar to one Flair used throughout his career. Offset’s appreciation for Ric Flair runs so deep he even got a chain of the wrestler in one of his signature poses.

The Atlanta trio has also proven their love for wrestling on songs like “Too Hotty,” which is a reference to Scotty 2 Hotty a famous WWF and WWE wrestler of the 90s and 2000s. In an interview with MTV News correspondent Gaby Wilson, Migos discussed their love of wrestling.

“If you listen to a lot of our music we rap about a lot of things we see and been apart of growing up sports, all 90′s era shit,” says Quavo.

We can WOOO! to that.
