Pusha T Says Drake’s Upcoming adidas Line is Named After His Son

If you have the Internet or a Soundcloud account, then you’re well aware there’s a pretty vicious rap battle going on at the moment. Pusha T and Drake are sparring at a high level and both fighting dirty. The latest blow comes in the form of “The Story Of Adidon” which alludes to Drizzy having a son that’s both secret and neglected. This allegation came as a surprise and caused some confusion with the following lyric linking the child to Drake’s adidas deal:

Adonis is your son
And he deserves more than an Adidas press run

This morning, Push — also under the adidas roster unless a recent change was made — called into The Breakfast Club to discuss both the beef and the lyric in question.

“Who rolls out their child with a sweatsuit?” questioned Pusha. “See the adidas situation is this: the child, allegedly his new line on adidas is called ADIDON which is named after Adonis his son. We couldn’t know about your child until you start selling sweatsuits and sneakers?”

Hear what Push had to say in the call to The Breakfast Club below.

Fans Think Nicki Minaj Is Dating Eminem After Her ‘Big Banks’ Verse

Nicki Minaj loves her punchlines, and her latest one is either an expert troll or… yeah, it has to be trolling. Today (May 25), YG released “Big Banks” featuring Minaj, 2 Chainz, and Big Sean. The subject matter of the Mustard-produced song is all there in the title, but it’s Nicki who goes slightly off topic. During her verse, she spits, “Back to back Maybach, stack the Ms / Told ‘em I met Slim Shady, bag the M / Once he go black, he’ll be back again.”

When a fan asked Nicki on Instagram if she was dating Eminem, she replied with a simple, “Yes.” However, the Queens rapper is known to joke around with her fans, especially on social media.

Could a Nicki and Em union potentially work? In an infamous 2017 Vulture interview, Eminem shared that he was on Tinder and discussed how the dating world is treating him.

“It’s tough,” Mathers said. “Since my divorce I’ve had a few dates and nothing’s panned out in a way that I wanted to make it public. Dating’s just not where I’m at lately.”

The Barbz have had a particularly stressful week after the “Chun-Li” rapper announced she was pushing back her album Queen. Depending on how much you ship Slim Shady and Minaj, this is great news.

SZA Is Benched From TDE’s Championship Tour After Injuring Her Vocal Cords

TDE’s star-studded Championship Tour has come to an abrupt — but hopefully only temporary — end for SZA.

On Tuesday (May 22), label founder Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith took to social media to explain SZA’s absence from the last few shows. He revealed that the CTRL singer has been pulled from the trek due to a vocal injury, writing that she’s been ordered to “rest her voice to prevent any permanent damage.”

“We’ve been monitoring her close and this is the reason she missed the Arizona and New Mexico dates,” he wrote. Top Dawg added that the singer will visit a doctor to determine whether or not she’ll be able to rejoin the tour, and promised to keep fans updated on her condition. He and SZA are also trying to find a way to make it up to fans who didn’t get to see her on the missed dates.

SZA retweeted Top Dawg’s statement but didn’t add any comments of her own.

The Championship Tour — which also features Kendrick Lamar, Schoolboy Q, Jay Rock, and more of the label’s talent — kicked off earlier this month in Vancouver. The arena trek is still slated to make stops in major cities like Atlanta, New York, and Chicago before wrapping in Pittsburgh on June 16. Here’s hoping SZA will make it back to the stage for at least a few of those dates.

Chance The Rapper Denounces Donald Trump After The President Tweets His Support

Today (April 27), Chance the Rapper apologized for controversial statements he made in the wake of Kanye West’s infamous support of President Trump. This week, the Coloring Book rapper posted two tweets that received a fair amount of backlash. Chance stated that “Black people don’t have to be democrats,” while also calling Kanye the “Same Ye from the VMAs, same Ye from the telethon.” It didn’t take long for Trump to send out a supportive tweet, which included Chance.

The gesture seemed like the breaking point for the young rapper. After quote tweeting Trump with a “Nah that ain’t it yo,” Chance elaborated on the week’s events.

“I didn’t speak up because I agree with what Kanye had to say or ’cause I fuck with Trump,” Chance wrote. “I did it because I wanted to help my friend and ’cause I felt like I was being used to attack him. Unfortunately, my attempt to support Kanye is being used to discredit my brothers and sisters in the movement and I can’t sit by and let that happen either.”

Chance continued his message by distancing himself from the president and his beliefs.

“I’d never support anyone who has made a career out of hatred, racism, and discrimination,” he wrote. “I’d never support someone who’d talk about Chicago as if it’s hell on earth then take steps to make life harder here for the most disenfranchised among us.”

Chance went on to promise that his apology will be seen in his actions and dedication to advocacy. He concluded his statement by addressing that he should’ve shown support for Kanye by directly messaging him, instead of going to Twitter.

“We have to talk honestly about what is happening and has been happening in this country and we have to challenge those who are responsible, as well as those who are giving them a pass,” Chance finished. “If that happens to include someone I love, someone who is my brother-in-Christ and someone who I believe does really want to do what is right, it’s not my job to defend or protect him. It’s my job pick up the phone and talk to him about it.”

Cardi B Is An Honorary Disney Princess After Her Immaculate Cheetah Girls Cover

Please say Cardi B isn’t trolling. Yesterday (March 28), the “Bodak Yellow” star playfully teased a song from her debut album, Invasion of Privacy. Although, instead of the Bronx rapper breaking out into her signature staccato flow, she decided to bring back a 2003 classic, “Cinderella” by The Cheetah Girls. Above an Instagram caption that simply read “Invasion of privacy

Logic And Jessica Andrea Have Reportedly Split After Two Years Of Marriage

Sad news for one of hip-hop’s favorite couples: Logic and wife Jessica Andrea have reportedly called it quits.

The rapper, 28, and social media star-turned-singer, 25, have decided to separate after two years of marriage, according to TMZ. Though the couple has not yet filed for divorce, a reconciliation “does not seem likely,” the outlet reported.

Just a few weeks ago, the married duo looked like the epitome of happiness while attending the Grammys, where Logic was nominated for Song of the Year for “1-800-273-8255.” It’s unclear when they called it quits, though fans noticed that Andrea unfollowed Logic on Instagram not too long ago, further fueling rumors of trouble between the two. Neither of them have commented on the reported split yet, but they’re both still following each other on Twitter.

Logic — who’s fresh off the release of his Bobby Tarantino II mixtape — and Andrea tied the knot in October 2015 after two years of dating. The Everybody rapper told MTV News shortly after their engagement, “I think it’s just something I’ve always wanted. I was just waiting for the right person. … I [proposed] in a photo booth. It was pretty epic. It’s just a spot that we both went to. It was real special to her. She took me there on one of our first dates. We went back again and when the photo booth counted down – 3, 2, 1 — I pulled out the ring and got it on film.”

Until we find out for sure what happened between these two, revisit the couple’s recent interview with MTV News correspondent Gaby Wilson on the Grammys red carpet.

After 15 Years, Fashion Critic Cathy Horyn Leaves The New York Times

The New York Times has officially announced that its chief fashion critic Cathy Horyn will retire from her position. According to a memo addressed to the newsroom from Executive Editor, Jill Abramson and Editor, Stuart Emmrich, Ms. Horyn will step down to spend more time with her partner Art Ortenberg, who is the widower of  clothing designer Liz Claiborne. After heading over to The Times in 1998, Ms. Horyn stepped into her current role in 1999 and proceeded to make waves in the industry with her critique and commentary throughout the fashion world — earning both praise and her fair share of revoked invites. Ms. Horyn’s illustrious career as a fashion journalist saw her hold positions at Vanity Fair, The Washington Post and The Detroit News. Below is the entire letter from Jill Abramson and Stuart Emmrich:

It is with both deep sadness over her departure and immense gratitude for the legacy she leaves behind that we announce that Cathy Horyn, the paper’s chief fashion critic since 1999, is leaving The Times. Cathy’s reasons for leaving are personal ones, to spend more with her partner, Art Ortenberg, who has had health problems, and whom she feels would benefit greatly from her increased presence at home.

How do we measure the impact that Cathy has made at The Times? Is it in the 1,123 bylined pieces she has written in the past 15 years? The promising designers she discovered, the unoriginal ones she dismissed, the talents that she celebrated in ways that illuminated their creative process for a readership that ranged from the executive offices of LVMH to the bargain shoppers at Barneys Warehouse? We do so in all of those ways to mark the work of a woman who is the preeminent fashion critic of her generation and who has set an almost impossible standard for those who may follow.

Cathy’s is a unique voice in the fashion world, one that was immediately announced by one of her very first reviews in The Times, of the couture shows in Paris in January, 1999. Here is how she led off that piece:

Just about everyone who comes to the haute couture collections knows that Nan is Nan Kempner, that Deeda is Deeda Blair and that Liliane Bettencourt, who was seated Wednesday in the front row at the Yves Saint Laurent show and wearing an orange muffler, is the richest woman in France. They may or may not know that the youngest couture customer at Givenchy is all of 8, or that Dodie Rosekrans, the San Francisco art patron and couture stalwart, recently bought a full-size guillotine covered with the Chanel logo for her home in Venice. But give them time. Paris is probably the only place on earth where the world’s rich, titled and tucked can always count on being connected, if only through clothes.

How can you not be immediately hooked? Times readers were, and have continued to be for the past 15 years. But Cathy was more than just a fashion critic. She was also a superb reporter, one who used fashion as her lens to look into broader cultural themes, most recently in her riveting A1 piece on Jackie Kennedy’s iconic pink suit, worn the day her husband was assassinated in Dallas and today shielded from public view, along with her blood-stained stockings, in a climate-controlled vault on the outskirts of Washington.

Cathy will be sorely missed by all of us in Styles and by the paper as a whole. But she is not leaving us completely: She will continue to work on a project that is dear to her heart: A book to be published by Rizzoli that chronicles how The New York Times has covered fashion from the 1850s to the first decades of the 21st century. No doubt it will be a great read.

Fondly,

Jill and Stuart
