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.

CrossFit Athlete Mat Fraser Gets His Own Nike PE

Just like greats on the hardwood and gridiron, CrossFit champion Mat Fraser is getting his own Nike sneaker.

Dubbed the Nike Metcon 4 “Mat Fraser,” the sneaker sports a jet black upper and gum mid and outsole. Fraser’s love for weightlifting and motorcycles can be seen throughout the shoe as the upper has a diamond grip pattern similar to a barbell. The motorcycle detailing can be found with the bull’s skull on the tongue, quilted lining, gunmetal chrome on the heel and laces tips.

Another noticeable detail are the two circles on the back heel, which represent Fraser’s first-place medals in the CrossFit Games. Fraser’s personal mantra of “hard work pays off” (HWPO) is written on the insoles.

“These design elements are really about celebrating some of my passions inside and outside of the gym,” Fraser said. “This shoe gives me such sense of accomplishment. It really gets me amped up to keep doing what I’m doing — working hard and trying to make myself the best athlete I possibly can.”

Fraser will debut his sneakers in the 2018 CrossFit Games on May 27 and the  Nike Metcon 4 “Mat Fraser” will be released on June 8 for $ 150 on nike.com.

Nike Metcon 4 MF…..Coming 6/8. #HWPO – #NikeMetcon @niketraining

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.

Meek Mill Gets A Taste Of Freedom In Powerful ‘1942 Flows’ Video

While Meek Mill remains locked up, his team continues the “Free Meek” campaign with the release of his new video for “1942 Flows,” a reflective track from last year’s Wins and Losses.

The poignant clip begins with a fictional scene of Meek leaving prison and confronting a horde of reporters. He speaks candidly about his so-called freedom, saying, “I feel like a free slave, you know? I feel like I’ve been targeted by certain people. Just being out on the streets and knowing somebody can take your freedom at any time.”

“My freedom on the line,” he adds at one point. “Unfortunately, I made mistakes when I was younger. It’s trailing me for the rest of my life.”

The rest of the video is largely comprised of footage of scenes from Free Meek Mill rallies — featuring a cameo from Rick Ross — and it ends with the chants of protesters demanding his freedom. It’s an emotional watch, given Meek’s current situation, but it’s also a powerful plea for justice that demands to be seen.

Meek is currently serving two to four years in prison for probation violations. Last week, Judge Genece Brinkley denied the rapper’s bail request, but the Philadelphia District Attorney has since filed a motion saying he wouldn’t oppose Meek’s release on bail. The decision now rests on the Supreme Court.

Virgil Abloh’s Off-White x Nike Air VaporMax Gets the Details Right

Virgil Abloh, throughout his triumphant career in fashion and design, has succeeded largely by forecasting cultural climate and mastering its delicate and often underlying details. And details come in many forms; some overt, some subtle. His upcoming Off-White x Nike Air VaporMax gets it right on both fronts.

The shoes deconstructed onset is, in and of itself, design satire. The exposed stitching, outspoken branding, and general departure from luxury while still appearing contemporary, is irony at its finest. Moreover, much like the overarching thesis of Off-White, the shoe acts as a detailed learning guide for the next generation to follow. Virgil is providing the blueprint for sneaker design in the most stylish and clever way possible. And without giving away too much; there’s still learning to be done.

See for yourself below as we take our best look yet at the upcoming Off-White VaporMax. Stay tuned to Nice Kicks for more.
