Nicki Minaj Gets Candid About What Being Single Meant For Her New Album

One can learn many things from a breakup, like the joys of sending reckless DMs or eating alone at a restaurant as you sneer at everyone condescendingly judging you. For Nicki Minaj , she learned that single life can actually be super inspirational. In her latest cover story for Elle, Minaj discussed what it was like being single for the “first time in my life” and how that affected her upcoming album.

“I went through a moment where I got to know myself again, and then I went through a moment where I got to know myself as the rapper again,” Minaj said. “And then I locked [myself] in the studio” — see? — and I didn’t want to leave. Spiritually, I’ve experienced more growth in the last six months of my life, of my career, than I have in the last eight years.”

In the past, Minaj has been linked to Safaree Samuels, Meek Mill, and, most recently, Nas. The two New York rappers reportedly split in late 2017, according to TMZ.

Elsewhere in the interview, the “Chun-Li” rapper described the challenges of being in relationships and how she got through the transition of being on her own again.

“I remember feeling like I could do anything at one time in my life and somewhere along the line, I just started second guessing myself, for whatever reason,” she said. “As soon as I realized that I could actually live and breathe, and eat and sleep, and walk and talk without having a boyfriend, something clicked in me.”

Minaj’s latest song, “Rich Sex,” is about why one shouldn’t have intercourse with brokies and fits nicely into the discussion she had during her cover story. Hopefully, when Queen arrives on August 10, fans will get a more complete look at Nicki’s thoughts about relationships, breakups, and everything in between.

Meek Mill Wishes Nicki Minaj ‘Said Nothing’ About His Incarceration

Meek Mill has been on a prolific press run since his release from prison. The Philadelphia rapper has been interviewed by outlets as varied as NBC’s Dateline and Hot 97. Today (May 10), Mill appeared on “The Breakfast Club” to discuss his opioid addiction, having conversations with Kanye West, and how it feels to be free. One of the most illuminating moments from the Philadelphia MC’s visit was him sharing his thoughts on his ex-girlfriend Nicki Minaj and her comments on his incarceration.

“I wasn’t feeling that,” Mill said. “She shouldn’t have said nothing. And we leave it at that. I don’t feel no way. She know I wasn’t feeling that.”

“When it comes to freedom and stuff like that, I don’t care who it is,” Meek continued. “This could be Safaree, this could be anybody — if I know something, and that man’s freedom is on the line and I could say something to help the situation, it’s right or wrong.”

In an April Beats 1 interview with Zane Lowe, Nicki was asked about Meek Mill and his ongoing issues with the criminal justice system. The Pinkprint rapper mentions that she had no problems with Genece Brinkley, the controversial judge who presides over Meek’s case.

“The judge in question did everything I asked of her,” Nicki said. “So I can’t bad-mouth her because I met her personally and I know what she said to us, and he [Meek] knows that.”

Nicki later told Lowe that she will go into more detail about Meek on her album. It looks like the former lovers both have a lot to get off their chest with their new music.

KYLE Opens Up About How Kid Cudi’s Music Saved His Life On TRL

TRL guest KYLE is slowly becoming the king of collabs, but Sway Calloway was most interested in a recent studio session with Chance the Rapper, Quavo, Rich The Kid and French Montana that he casually posted on Instagram. KYLE wouldn’t reveal too much about what went down, but he did share some highlights from the experience.

After that, he explained the origins of his strong bond to Kid Cudi’s music and how the rapper got him through a hard time in his life. “I felt like I found somebody who understood,” said KYLE. “He showed me the power of music. You can save somebody’s life with it.” Needless to say that meeting Kid Cudi at Coachella was the ultimate full-circle moment for him. He adds, “I was so happy to see my superhero in the flesh.”

KYLE also opened up about what it means to have his own holiday in his hometown of Ventura and the importance of giving back to his community. TRL airs on weekdays at 8:00am ET!

G-Eazy Is ‘Embarrassed And Apologetic’ About Recent Arrest In Sweden

Last week, G-Eazy was reportedly arrested in Sweden after an altercation at a nightclub, where he allegedly assaulted a security guard and was found in possession of cocaine after an issue with a fan, according to a TMZ report. The Bay Area rapper was ultimately charged with assaulting an officer, violent resistance, and illegal drug possession, reports Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet.

Yesterday (May 6), G-Eazy broke his silence on the matter and went to Instagram to issue an apology. In his statement, The Beautiful & Damned artist describes being “grateful & blessed” to be free and briefly alludes to the arrest.

“Embarrassed & apologetic beyond words about the incident,” wrote G-Eazy. “But above all I’m so fucking grateful they let me go, craziest experience of my life, awful night with a lot of bad luck and some even worse decisions but like I said I’m grateful as fuck to be a free man, back on tour performing for the fans.”

“Thank you to everyone who’s held me down along the way and supported this journey,” G-Eazy continued. “I appreciate you more than you’ll ever know. Love.”

The altercation in Sweden isn’t the first time the California artist has fended off questions about his drug use. On a January interview on “The Breakfast Club”, the “Him & I” rapper was asked about rumors of his drug use after photos leaked of him with Halsey.

“I don’t know,” G-Eazy said. “It’s New Year’s Day. It’s Miami. You know what I’m saying? I’m on a yacht. What do you think I’m doing? You think I’m smoking weed?”

G-Eazy is currently on the European leg of his tour. Read his entire statement above.

Lil Xan Gets Vulnerable About Addiction And His Music’s Real Message

Lil Xan is a complicated artist. On the hook to his hit song “Betrayed,” the California artist raps, “Xans don’t make you / Xans gon’ take you / Xans gon’ fake you / And Xans gon’ betray you,” but has also admitted to being on the drug when creating the song. In a new interview, MTV’s Push artist for the month of May opened up about his battle with addiction.

“If you were following me since the beginning, you see my journey,” Xan said. “From when I was struggling with addiction to “Hit My Line” all the way through “Betrayed,” you followed me on the journey to that better place.”

Xan goes on to detail the story of how he became addicted to the medication.

“I got anxiety in April of 2014,” the Total Xanarchy artist continued. “I was hospitalized for two weeks and they didn’t know what was wrong with me, and at the end they gave me a low dosage of Xanax. Before the whole anti-Xanax message in what I do, I was actually pro-Xanax culture.”

Thankfully, Xan ends his interview on a positive note as he discusses the underlying message of his music.

“Performing is the one time I don’t have anxiety, surprisingly right?” Xan concludes. “People are like, ‘How do you perform in front of thousands of people?’ I don’t know if it’s the adrenaline that kicks in or something, but it’s really the only time I’m at peace… I want everybody to know they’re not alone. That’s why I do this.”

Watch Lil Xan perform his Diplo collaboration “Color Blind” below, then watch him break down why it is one of his favorite songs.

Kanye West’s New Song ‘Lift Yourself’ Is Here, And It’s Mostly About Poop

Kanye West has made his musical return, and there’s no way it sounds like anything you might’ve predicted. Unless, that is, you guessed that his first new song since 2016 would be about poop.

On Friday night (April 27), the Chicago rapper — who’s been causing drama all week with his divisive, Trump-supporting tweets — tweeted the link to his website, which now auto-plays a song called “Lift Yourself.” The majority of the track features a chorus of soulful voices singing, “Lift yourself up on your feet, let’s get it on.” Almost two minutes in, ‘Ye speaks over the track, saying, “They don’t realize though, this next verse, this next verse though, these bars, watch this.” He then launches into a “verse” in which he mostly raps a variation of, “whoopdedy-scoop, whoopdedy-whoop-scoop-poop,” followed by an abrupt end. You just can’t make this shit up.

Hours before the song’s release on Friday, West teased “Lift Yourself” by tweeting, “I’m going to drop a song with a verse that will bring Ebro the closure he’s been seeking.” Ebro, of course, is the radio host Kanye’s been semi-feuding with all week. He also added, “the bars,” with a ton of fire emojis to really drive his point home.

Head to kanyewest.com to hear the song in full, and look out for more new music soon. The rapper recently announced that he has a new solo album arriving on June 1, followed by a collaborative project with Kid Cudi on June 8. Let’s hope he gives us some fresh bars that aren’t just about poop.

Kanye West Returned To Social Media To Talk About Tattoos, Shoes, And Consciousness

On Friday (April 13), Kanye West made his miraculous return to Twitter. Last May, Kanye deactivated his Twitter and Instagram accounts, but re-activated the latter as part of Kim Kardashian’s Valentine’s Day gift. Over the weekend, Kanye made sure his tweets covered a wide range of topics including, tattoo ideas and his favorite Saint Pablo merch. However, he also started to show off the inspiration behind various models of his Yeezy sneaker line.

The reasoning behind this might come from a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, where Kanye sat down with interior designer Axel Vervoordt. During the discussion, Kanye admits to being upset after multiple publications describe Virgil Abloh — recently appointed to Louis Vuitton’s menswear artistic director — as his creative director, instead of creative collaborator.

“It’s not bad or good, it’s my creative collaborator being the head of Louis Vuitton,” Kanye said. “Because [Abloh and I] have been fighting to make apparel at a certain price that still has the same credibility and desirability as something at a higher price…But when they say he was my creative director, that’s incorrect. He was a creative collaborator.”

Later in the discussion, The Life of Pablo-artist shares his ultimate goal with his fashion line.

“At Adidas, I have Yeezy, but it’s a namesake brand,” West continued. “It’s my nickname. We do these sneakers that sell out and we get, ‘Oh, this is the number one brand on Women’s Wear Daily.’ And I don’t wish to be number one anymore, I wish to be water. I wish to be closer to UNICEF or something where I can take the information that I have and help as many people as possible, not to just shove it into a brand”

Hopefully, Kanye will start getting the credit he deserves and keeps dropping mental jewels on Twitter.

Cardi B Talks About Her Pregnancy & Making Money Moves On TRL

These days, it’s impossible to go anywhere without a mention of Cardi B—I barely remember what life was like before the entertainment world revolved around her! Last week, the rapper sealed her fate as a music legend with the release of her bombshell debut album titled Invasion Of Privacy. Following all of her groundbreaking success, it only seemed right that the Love & Hip-Hop alum take over the TRL studio for the day to celebrate her latest accomplishments.

Sway Calloway made his epic return to MTV to celebrate this monumental moment, also tapping Cardi’s sister Hennessy Carolina to co-host the show and count down her top 10 iconic moments. After they warmed up the show, Queen Cardi sat on her cushioned throne and talked everyone through her latest life updates, including her newly announced pregnancy, her engagement to Offset, what went down at the Invasion Of Privacy release party and the moment that she felt like she finally made it.

Cardi also reflected on the legacy of her viral video for “a hoe never gets cold” and then got super nostalgic with Hennessy in a round of I Did It that ended with her casually getting a brand-new Gucci bag. J Balvin and DJ Khaled also sent over some special shoutouts, which was too cute. Cardi is truly a character with a big personality, so it made sense that some fierce drag queens touched down in the studio and embodied a few of our favorite versions of her. On top of that, Cardi also got a custom cover blanket courtesy of collage.com, a one-of-a-kind painting and a gigantic cake. Just another day in the fabulous life of Cardi B!

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.
