Chance the Rapper and Jeremih’s Christmas Album Drops Next Week

Posted by YeezysWorld on 4:03 AM

‘Tis the season for Chance and Jeremih. The Chicago duo is set to release an extended version of their collaborative holiday album Merry Christmas Lil’ Mama next week.

The project, a reissue of last year’s SoundCloud mixtape, features nine festive new tracks in addition to the original nine, with contributions from Common, Lena Waithe, Bongo ByTheWay, Noname, Zaytoven, and Hannibal Burress.

The minute-long teaser clip acts as an infomercial starring both Chance and Jeremih in the studio, while snippets of new music can be heard.

“Me and @jeremih quietly made a free chicago christmas soundcloud project last year and it was so fun we just ran it back,” said Chance. “#merrychristmaslilmama will be available EVERYWHERE next week wit a gang of new altxmas bangerz. Shout Common & Lena Waithe for playing new drums on every track on this project.”

Last month, Bongo spoke exclusively with Rap-Up about the album. “It’s gonna be a completion of that project,” he said. “We just put it out for the culture, for the fans and stuff. Now, we’re really finishing it up and we’re gonna put it out right. It’s gonna have new music. It’s gonna be mixed and mastered and everything.”

Merry Christmas Lil’ Mama will be available next week at streaming services including Apple Music, Spotify, SoundCloud, and TIDAL.

Posted by YeezysWorld on 9:03 AM

Bottles up. One year after Trap or Die 3, Jeezy gets his shine on with Pressure, the eighth album in his celebrated discography.

The Snowman arrives with a flurry of guests, including Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole on the highly-anticipated “American Dream.” Other combos include Kodak Black and YG (“Pressure”), Tory Lanez and Rick Ross (“Like Them”), and WizKid and Trey Songz (“The Life”).

That’s not all. Puff Daddy (“Bottles Up”), 2 Chainz (“Floor Seats”), and Tee Grizzley (“Cold Summer”) also show up for Jeezy’s first album since 2016’s Trap or Die 3.

The album is a reflection of Jeezy’s current lifestyle. “You know, we’re eight albums in, 12 years in the game, but I’m all about living the dream and living life right now, so you’re going to hear that in the music,” he told Billboard. “It’s lifestyle. I’m going to speak my truth. I’m going to let you know [on] this album: I really live it. If you aspire to be like me, I’m going to show you how to get that going. It ain’t about how I used to live, what I used to do; it’s real time right now.”

Future Settles $10 Million Lawsuit with Rocko

Posted by YeezysWorld on 8:33 PM

Future must pay up.

The Atlanta rapper has settled his 18-month legal battle with former friend and business associate Rocko.

The court documents, obtained by TMZ and filed by both sides, ask for a dismissal of the case. While Future has not commented, Rocko’s lawyers say that he’s happy with the “very successful result.”

TMZ claims that the amount paid was in the seven figures, however, an exact number was not disclosed. Rocko was originally seeking $10 million.

Rocko sued Future last year, claiming the “Mask Off” hitmaker breached contract by signing a side deal with Epic Records and cut him out of the deal. Future countersued, claiming his deal with Rocko was never exclusive, and also claimed Rocko owed him money.

Watch Kehlani’s ‘Tsunami Christmas’ Concert

Posted by YeezysWorld on 5:42 PM

It’s beginning to look a lot like a Tsunami Christmas. Kehlani celebrated the holidays with a special show at Oakland’s Fox Theater on Sunday (Dec. 10), where she lit up the hometown stage.

Performing a series of tracks from her debut album SweetSexySavage and mixtape You Should Be Here, Lil Lani rocked out to “I Wanna Be,” “Undercover,” “You Should Be Here,” and “The Way.” While the livestreamed show featured neon lights and back up dancers, Lani put all the frills to the side for “Honey,” a low-key and mellow performance with crowd participation.

“Thank you for selling this show out like y’all do every fucking time,” she said to roaring applause. “I gotta say hi to everybody watching at home on TIDAL. Hey, y’all!”

Midway through the show, 6LACK showed up to perform hits like “PRBLMS,” earning acclaim from the woman of the hour. With 6LACK blushing on stage, Lani celebrated his skills. “I love you,” she said. “Thank you so much for doing this.”

Back to her set, Lil Lani continued with bangers like “Distraction,” “Everything Is Yours,” and “Personal,” shimmying across the stage with confidence. Finally, she brought out “mini tsunamis” for a special rendition of “CRZY,” where she tried to clean up the expletives.

Lani also served up a cover of Tamia’s “So Into You” for the Oakland crowd. “You guys said you grew up on R&B music,” she said. “It’s cool. We all got our genres. Can you help me cover a song? It’s a song I grew up listening to, which I love.”

The holiday spirit continues with additional shows in Los Angeles, Santa Ana, and San Diego from tonight (Dec. 11) through Dec. 19.

Watch her full set via TIDAL below.

LeToya Luckett Marries Tommicus Walker

Posted by YeezysWorld on 1:40 PM

LeToya Luckett said yes, yes, yes to Dallas-based entrepreneur Tommicus Walker during a private ceremony in Austin, Tex. on Sunday (Dec. 10).

It was a stylish affair officiated by Pastor John Gray of OWN’s “The Book of John Gray.” The bride looked elegant in a custom Vera Wang gown and Christian Louboutin sandals, while Walker was dapper in a Tom Ford jacket and Ermenegildo Zegna pants. “Vera Wang graciously allowed me to add a few touches to my dress as my own addition,” Luckett told Essence.

Ludacris’ wife, Eudoxie Bridges, was one of two of Luckett’s matron-of-honors. Walker’s brothers were the best men. Luda, Tank, and Michelle Williams were on hand for the celebration. Fellow former Destiny’s Child singer LaTavia Roberson also attended.

Luckett went public with their romance in August after being introduced by designer Nikki Chu. “I feel it’s very important to build your foundation first before sharing your relationship with the world,” she said at the time of their engagement.

This is the second marriage for Luckett. In January 2016, she secretly wed author/entrepreneur Rob Hillman, but they were divorced by August. In May of this year, she released her latest album, Back 2 Life.

Tyler, the Creator Performs for NPR’s ‘Tiny Desk’ Concert

Posted by YeezysWorld on 12:42 PM

Tyler, the Creator takes over “Tiny Desk.”

By dimming the lights, adding blue, orange, and purple hues, the Odd Future frontman turned the “All Songs Considered” series into his own. It was the first time the show had been filmed at night, according to NPR, and it was also at Tyler’s request.

Backed by a live band and backup singers dressed in all white, Tyler kicked off the performance with “Boredom” off his Grammy-nominated album, Flower Boy. After drinking a “nasty-ass tea,” Tyler continued with “See You Again.” “Excuse my voice,” he said. “I can’t sing but I don’t fucking care because it feels good like a warm shower, I think.”

Finally, Tyler and the crew finished off the set with a performance of “Glitter.” “That was cool,” he said. “I guess we’re done. Thanks.” But before walking off, he continued with a speech. “I’ve only worked with one band and I fucking hated it and I’ve always hated rap music with bands,” he said. “I wanna hear 808s and not an Incubus kick drum.”

But his thoughts changed once he found his current band. “I’ve always been hesitant to even approach it but I found these guys and they’re really, really talented,” he added. “We just meshed together and it sounded really cool.”

Watch Tyler’s “Tiny Desk” set below.

Posted by YeezysWorld on 11:21 AM

Miguel is sky walkin’ on the charts.

Bowing at No. 9 on this week’s Billboard 200, the Los Angeles crooner’s fourth album War & Leisure moves 40,000 units (16,000) traditional. With this total, it becomes his third top 10 effort following Wildheart (No. 2 in 2015) and Kaleidoscope Dream (No. 3 in 2012).

To go along with the commercial success, War & Leisure has benefited from critical adoration. “War & Leisure’s balance of the personal and the political is inventive,” wrote Vulture. Meanwhile, Pitchfork gave it an 8.1, saying it has a “kinetic sexual and political energy.”

Next year, Miguel is set to hit the road to promote the album. Featuring SiR and Nonchalant Savant, his “War & Leisure Tour” will run from Feb. 22 in Portland through Apr. 12 in Berkeley.

Elsewhere on the Billboard 200, U2’s Songs of Experience debuts at No. 1, making them the only group with No. 1s in the 1980s, 1990s, 2000s, and 2010s. The album features Kendrick Lamar on “Get Out of Your Own Way” and “American Soul.” See the rest of this week’s top 10 below.

Rihanna, Chris Brown, & Cardi B Rally in Support of Bullied Keaton Jones

Posted by YeezysWorld on 10:30 AM

Entertainers are coming to the defense of a Tennessee middle school student named Keaton Jones after his mother, Kimberly, posted a viral video of the young man, explaining how he’s being bullied at school.

The young man can be seen tearfully asking why people criticize others, simply for being different. “Just out of curiosity,” he tearfully asks his mother, “why do they bully? What’s the point of it? Why do they find joy in taking innocent people and finding a way to be mean to them? It’s not okay.”

The short clip has gone viral with many celebrities voicing support for Keaton, including Cardi B, who’s been vocal about it on Twitter and Instagram. “Who ever goes to this boy school ,If you pick on him you not even a bully YOU A STRAIGHT UP PUSSY ASS PUNK ASS BITCH,” she wrote on IG. “Like how you pick on somebody who can’t defend them self ? THATS NOT GANGSTA ! If you a parent or somebody big sis or big bro show your kids this video and show them why they should not bully others !!”

On Twitter, she added: “I can’t get that boy In that video out my mind πŸ˜ͺI wish i can give him a hug and beat the shit out them kids that pick on him .I don’t care if they kids πŸ‘ŠπŸ½πŸ‘ŠπŸ½FUCK YOU !! And i don’t cry much ,actually i do πŸ˜‚but that video had me fucked up all night long πŸ˜ͺπŸ˜ͺπŸ˜ͺ😒😒Shit hurt me like it’s my own. I’m so Sad and angry like I’m OD hot 😑πŸ˜ͺPlease teach your kids not to be bullies .Teach them how to be tough πŸ‘ŠπŸ½but not too pick on others.”

Chris Brown added: “I LOVE YOU BRO! Wanna encourage THE WORLD AND PEOPLE TO SHOW LOVE AND COMPASSION. this video made me wanna do harm to the people who picked on this kid, but then I realized that love works both ways. #FUCKBULLYING.”

T.I. also informed young Keaton that it’s his differences that make him “the shit” and that bullies are “just cowards who are too weak to address the hurt, pain, & unhappiness in their own miserable lives.” Snoop Dogg offered his friendship, as well: “Say lil Man U gotta friend in me for life hit me on dm so we can chop it up love is the only way to beat hate.”

Justin Bieber echoed Tha Doggfather’s sentiments: “You got a friend in me Lil bro! Hit me on dm and we can chat!!! Love you buddy!!”

Rihannna called Keaton a “hero” and celebrated him as a “young KING” for inspiring others. “Hero!!!” she wrote. “Thank you young KING for inspiring us all who have been in your shoes at any capacity! If you have, or currently are going through any form of bullying, my heart and my prayers go out to you! Bullies…y’all corny!”

Jennifer Lopez said that the clip broke her heart and stood in solidarity with Keaton. “This little boy is suffering at the hand of bullies like so many other little boys and girls… but you are not alone Keaton we are here,” she wrote. “There is no room in this world for bullying or hate of any kind. And we will overcome it with love… As a parent it is my responsibility to make sure my kids know it is ok to go to an adult when someone is treating them in a way that hurts them or makes them uncomfortable or unhappy in anyway. Also to educate and teach them to treat people with kindness, love and respect no matter how different they may be from you!! #loveistheanswer #lovealwayswins #youarenotalone #bulliessuck #teachlove.”

Athletes, actors, and other musicians have also shed light on bullying as a result of the video. University of Tennessee quarterback Jarrett Guarantano said he spent the day with Keaton, who is his “new best bud.”
