Teyana Taylor Covers Playboy

Posted by YeezysWorld on 3:30 PM

Teyana Taylor is heating up the pages of Playboy.

The R&B siren covers the magazine’s September issue. But instead of disrobing, the 27-year-old shows off her fiery red hair and six-pack abs poolside at a Los Angeles mansion in the smoldering shoot, photographed by Ben Watts.

“I’ve had this six-pack since I was, like, six,” says Taylor, who flaunts her curvy figure in a bikini. “I was like a Ninja Turtle.”

The mother of one, who released her sophomore album K.T.S.E. in June, also speaks about her journey and constant grind. “Patience has been my biggest challenge. There’s times where I’d just be laying in bed, crying,” she says. “I’d been doing this for so many years and it was just not happening.”

But Junie, her two-year-old daughter with Iman Shumpert, helped her through tough times. “She’d be like, ‘Mommy, what’s wrong? Don’t cry.’ And I’m like, ‘You right. I’m happy. I got you. I have my wonderful husband. Life could be much worse.'”

In the issue, she also opens up about staying true to herself. “I’m not difficult; I’m just not willing to belittle myself—to settle,” she explains. “I’m going to have self-respect. I’m going to be a strong woman all across the board whether you like it or not. Maybe that’s why it took me so long to get where I wanted to be. I was never willing to be what someone else wanted.”

Taylor, who is currently on tour with Jeremih, can also be seen in the upcoming Netflix film The After Party. “Once this music is out, I might really consider that I’ve done damn near everything I’ve ever wanted to do.”

Sabrina Claudio Opens Up About ‘Shameful’ Comments, Readies New Project

Posted by YeezysWorld on 1:57 PM

Sabrina Claudio’s career took an unexpected and ugly turn when fans uncovered old tweets from the 21-year-old singer making disparaging comments about women of color.

After facing backlash on social media, Claudio, who is of Cuban and Puerto Rican descent, issued an apology via Twitter for her “past ignorance.” “I am deeply sorry for the insensitive words I’ve used,” she tweeted in April. “Some of the things you are seeing are true while others aren’t.”

The derogatory tweets came from Claudio’s old Twitter account @ODamnYoureUgly. Fans posted screenshots of the racist comments, where she used the n-word and called one Instagram user a “sweaty chonga.”

During an intimate listening event in Los Angeles late last month, Claudio once again apologized for her offensive words. “I want to apologize to you guys individually,” she told a group of journalists including Rap-Up. “Even sitting in front of you today, I’m shaking ’cause I’m embarrassed, humiliated, and shocked because when everything resurfaced, it’s almost like I read that and I got a sick feeling in my stomach because I didn’t recognize that person. And I didn’t know how to explain that.”

She reflected on her upbringing and what may have led to her behavior. “Growing up, I was a very miserable person for no reason,” said Claudio. “I think what was the most difficult part for me was I couldn’t figure out why I was living on this Earth. I didn’t know my purpose. Before getting into music, I was trying to do dancing, I was trying to do modeling, I was just trying to be a kid, I was trying to fit in in school and nothing seemed to be working out. I was just really sad all the time. And I think that clearly I just was never thinking and would say things that I didn’t mean just because I was angry with myself and my situation in my life.”

As she grew older, she was able to find purpose. “I started finding happiness in myself. I started finding happiness in my surroundings and my growth was so prominent that when I saw these tweets resurface, I was disgusted with myself.”

While she admits wrongdoing, she also sees it as a lesson. “It’s incredibly shameful of me to even have to sit here and apologize for it because I can’t believe that I did that. But I do want to apologize ’cause I’m sorry. I take full responsibility,” she said. “I have a lot of work to do and I recognize that. I’m willing to do everything that I have to do because I’m so passionate about this world and what I do and my new faith in everything. This is my reality now.”

Inspired by her journey, Claudio is now readying a new project called No Rain, No Flowers for release on Aug. 15 via SC Entertainment/Atlantic Records. She has debuted two tracks so far, the emotional “Messages From Her” and “Numb,” produced by Sad Money and Afterhrs.

“No Rain, No Flowers is an inside look into my journey of healing and growth,” she explained in a statement. “Rain symbolizes darkness but also represents an essential part of rebirth. If there is no rain, there are no flowers.”

Mac Miller Teases Joint Album with Post Malone

Posted by YeezysWorld on 2:03 PM

Mac Miller and Post Malone may be up to something.

Fresh off the release of his new album Swimming, the Pittsburgh rapper revealed that he and the “rockstar” have been toying with the idea of a joint project.

“Me and Post have been talking about doing an album,” he tells Rolling Stone.

Miller and Malone recently met up with Thundercat and producer Frank Dukes for an impromptu jam session. “It was beautiful,” says Miller. “We were just having a great time.”

The two previously worked together on “Camera” off DJ Drama’s 2016 album Quality Street Music 2, which featured Lil Uzi Vert and 1st FKI.

During the Rolling Stone interview, Miller also opened up about his D.U.I. arrest in May. “I loaded the gun for them,” he reveals. “I got into that shit. That’s my mistake. What does that specific event mean for my whole character? That’s a different conversation. But people are going to draw their own conclusions. And I have a past history with that shit, so they’re going to naturally assume that that means I’m back going through it. I can’t change it. I’m not going to lose sleep over it, though. I’d rather just continue living my life and see where that goes.”

As far as his love life goes, Ariana Grande’s ex says he’s happily single. “I’m not about to be in another relationship,” says Miller. “I’m chilling. I can barely take care of my dog.”

Drake Reps Nike Over Adidas on Travis Scott’s ‘Sicko Mode’

Posted by YeezysWorld on 2:09 PM

Drake is pledging his allegiance to Nike.

Despite a long-rumored deal with adidas, it seems that the 6 God is remaining true to his Nike and Jordan Brand family. On “Sicko Mode,” his new ASTROWORLD collaboration with Travis Scott, Drake raps about his preference for “checks over stripes,” an apparent reference to Nike’s swoosh over adidas’ three stripes.

“Nothin’ nice, yeah / Baguettes in my ice,” raps Drake. “Jesus Christ, checks over stripes, yeah / That’s what I like, that’s what we like.”

Travis also references his own Nike partnership on his verse: “Yeah, Jumpout Boys, that’s Nike Boys.”

Just days before the song’s release, Drake posted a photo of a Nike jersey emblazoned with the OVO logo, hinting that his relationship with Nike was still in tact despite the adidas rumors. He is also seen wearing a pair of Air Jordan 5s in the video for “In My Feelings.”

Pusha-T even claimed that Drake was going to name his new adidas line after his son. “Adonis is your son / And he deserves more than an adidas press run, that’s real,” raps Pusha on his “Story of Adidon” diss.

Lil’ Kim is back with the vibrant video for “Nasty One.”

Directed by Peter Dmitriyev, the Queen Bee rules her kingdom in the colorful and sexy clip.

French Montana was the victim of a home invasion robbery.

According to TMZ, at least two armed robbers broke into the rapper’s Calabasas crib, which is located in a guard gated community, early Tuesday morning (July 31).

Law enforcement officials were summoned to French’s mansion around 9 a.m., several hours after the crime occurred. French and others were reportedly home at the time. It’s unclear if anyone was injured, but no one was hospitalized.

It’s unknown what, if anything, the thieves took. Cops are still investigating and don’t have any suspects yet.

French purchased the 7,229 square-foot compound from Selena Gomez, who sold it for $3.3 million in 2016 after the house became a frequent target of stalkers.

Kanye West Opens Up About Suicide After Watching Alexander McQueen Documentary

Posted by YeezysWorld on 3:30 PM

Kanye West is getting candid about suicide after watching a documentary about Alexander McQueen.

Taking to Twitter on Friday, the 41-year-old rapper said he had seen the documentary McQueen and identified with the late British fashion designer, who committed suicide in 2010.

“I saw the Alexander McQueen documentary and I connected with his journey,” tweeted West. “I know how it feels to want to take your life back into your own hands even if it means taking your own life.”

“To make this clear and not weird I’ve had these kinds of thoughts and I’m going to tell you things I’ve done to stay in a content place.

“How to NOT kill yourself pt 1 Avoid being around people who make you want to kill yourself.”

West has been open about his mental health issues in the past. He even references his suicidal thoughts on “I Thought About Killing You” off his latest album ye.

“Today I thought about killing you, premeditated murder / I think about killing myself / And I, I love myself way more than I love you,” he says.

During a recent interview with The New York Times, he revealed that he’s contemplated suicide. “Oh yeah, I’ve thought about killing myself all the time,” said West. “It’s always a option and [expletive]. Like Louis C.K. said: I flip through the manual. I weigh all the options.”

He added: “I’m just having this epiphany now, ’cause I didn’t do it, but I did think it all the way through. But if I didn’t think it all the way through, then it’s actually maybe more of a chance of it happening.”

During an iHeartRadio Q&A with Angie Martinez in New York on Thursday (July 26), Nas revealed his plans (via Complex). “It’s another album that I already had been working on before [Nasir],” he said. “Since I did this, I gotta do something that, you know, goes in another direction a little bit. So I’m finishing up the next one.”

And while it took six years between Life Is Good and Nasir, fans won’t have to wait too long for the next album. “No, it’s not gonna be that long because half of it was already there,” said Nas. “I did something with Swizz, I did stuff with RZA. I’m a big Wu-Tang fan. RZA’s real.”

He also opened up about recording his seven-track album in Wyoming with Kanye West. “He’s a professional when it comes to making beats,” said Nas. “I don’t even know how to bop my head as hard as he does to the beats.”

But the entire experience was something new for him. “Wyoming was weird for me,” he added. “Beautiful people… Yeah, that was different. I had never been there before, so that was an experience that was cool.”

Featuring appearances from Kanye, Puff Daddy, and The-Dream, Nasir debuted at No. 5 on the Billboard 200 with first-week sales of 77,000 units.

After putting his spin on tracks from Lil Baby, Jacquees, and Kanye West and Kid Cudi, the Golf Wang rapper unleashes “Tiptoe,” a remix to Playboi Carti’s Die Lit cut. “R.I.P.”

Tyler raps about his sexuality (“Focus on the Eve / Nah, I was focused on the green / In the trees with binoculars / Looking for an Adam”), Louis Vuitton Men’s Artistic Director Virgil Abloh (“Y’all was out in Paris dick riding Virgil / Hope them Insta photos kept you cool in coach”), and his peers (“Ni**as pretend to be boss / You signed a 360, you lost”).

The latest spree of remixes was inspired by Lil Wayne and Tyler’s idol Pharrell. “also im practicing in front of yall putting verses on random shit, its fun, im in a pocket,” tweeted Tyler. “shout out to early wayne drought tapes and p in my mind the prequel tape. very hyped yall like it. some street ni**as gave me props for BRONCO, happy that world is aware. enjoy now, holla.”

Additionally, Tyler is reportedly working with A$AP Rocky on a joint project called WANG$AP.

6ix9ine Says Robbery Was ‘Inside Job’

Posted by YeezysWorld on 2:15 PM

6ix9ine may be famous for trolling, but he insists his kidnapping was not a publicity stunt.

The rapper appeared on “TMZ Live” on Monday (July 23), where he explained what happened during Sunday’s brutal attack in Brooklyn, where he was allegedly kidnapped, pistol whipped, and robbed of $750,000 in jewelry and $15,000-$20,000 in cash.

Tekashi says he was coming home after editing his “FEFE” video with Nicki Minaj when his vehicle was hit from behind. A gunman emerged from the car and pistol whipped him so hard that he blacked out and woke up in the back of a different car.

“I black out right there. All I saw was a flash,” he explained. “It just happened so quick. All I saw was the gun in my face. When I woke up, I was in the back seat of a car.”

He pleaded with the armed men to let him see his two-year-old daughter, who was reportedly in the house with his baby mother at the time of the robbery. He didn’t tell them where he lived, but claims someone knew. “It was like an inside job,” he said. “I wouldn’t want to set up a publicity stunt and lose close to a million dollars.”

Some believe it was a PR stunt set up to promote his new single “FEFE” with Nicki Minaj, which also happened to drop on Sunday (July 22).

6ix9ine denies the claim, but admits to trolling in the past. “I’m like the boy who cried wolf,” he said. “The person who trolls so much. When it’s actually real, people don’t believe it anymore because it’s like, ‘He’s trolling.'”

Cops have uncovered surveillance video, which helps support his story. The footage reportedly shows the suspects’ vehicle outside the rapper’s home, but it’s too far away to ID the gunmen.

Posted by YeezysWorld on 3:30 PM

Ahead of his upcoming album Swimming, Mac Miller delivers his new single “What’s the Use?”

Following “Self Care” and “Small Worlds,” the Pittsburgh rapper drops the funky and breezy track, produced by Pomo, with additional production from Dam-Funk, Thundercat, and background vocals from Snoop Dogg and Syd.

“I just like having something that comes on and it makes people want to move in a different way,” Mac told Zane Lowe on Beats 1.

During his interview with Lowe, Mac also opened up about his breakup with Ariana Grande. “Life is stressful, so of course there were stressful times. It’s not that unique,” he said. “I was in love with somebody. We were together for two years. We worked through good times, bad times, stress and everything else. And then it came to an end and we both moved on. And it’s that simple.”

But he wishes her and her new fiancé Pete Davidson all the best. “It’s all positive energy,” he continued. “I am happy for her and [the fact that she’s] moving forward with her life, just as I’m sure she is with me.”

In conjunction with the track, Mac has also announced dates for “The Swimming Tour” with special guests Thundercat and J.I.D. Produced by Live Nation, the 26-date North American trek kicks off Oct. 27 in San Francisco and wraps Dec. 10 in Vancouver. Pre-sale tickets go on sale beginning July 24 at 10 a.m. local time.

Pusha-T Marries Virginia Williams

Posted by YeezysWorld on 2:27 PM

Pusha-T is a married man.

The G.O.O.D. Music rapper married his longtime girlfriend Virginia Joy Williams during a star-studded ceremony at The Cavalier hotel in his hometown of Virginia Beach, Va. on Saturday (July 21).

The groom donned a cream-colored Dior Homme tuxedo jacket with a black bow tie and black slacks, while his bride was stunning in a lace white gown and long veil.

Pusha’s brother and former Clipse partner-in-rhyme Malice was the officiant, while Pharrell Williams served as best man, toasting the bride and groom with shots. Kanye West and Kim Kardashian were also in attendance during the intimate ceremony.

As family and friends looked on, the couple entered the reception to Kids See Ghosts‘ “Feel the Love” and Pusha even got on the mic to perform his Daytona cut “The Games We Play.”

Pusha and Williams announced their engagement in July 2017. At the time, Williams showed off her engagement ring on Instagram with a photo of her hand resting on Pusha’s arm.

Next up, the newly-married Pusha will head out on the road on his 20-date “Daytona Tour,” starting July 31 in Denver.
