Video: 2 Chainz feat. Travis Scott – ‘4 AM’

Posted by YeezysWorld on 11:33 AM

2 Chainz and Travis Scott throw a surprise party at “4 AM” in the video for their Pretty Girls Like Trap Music collaboration.

The visual finds La Flame and Tity Boi having fun with two nearly-nude models inside of a hotel room. Soon, the bash continues with more friends, more women, and plenty of smoke.

Using a handheld camera for effect, the clip mashes together some X-rated material. It features cars doing donuts, a random pink/purple chicken, cop cars, and plenty of dancing at a nightclub. Through it all, Hair Weave Killer and Cactus Jack perform their early morning banger.

Earlier this week, 2 Chainz premiered his new Viceland series, “Most Expensivest,” and dropped his “Gucci Linen” collaboration with blackbear.

Stream Jaden Smith’s Debut Album ‘SYRE’

Posted by YeezysWorld on 9:36 PM

The moment has arrived. Three years in the making, Jaden Smith unleashes his debut album SYRE: A Beautiful Confusion.

The introspective 17 tracks include appearances from A$AP Rocky (“Breakfast”) and Raury (“Falcon”), plus the previously-released “Watch Me” and “Batman.”

Featuring the soothing sounds of “Lost Boy,” the hypnotic bounce of “George Jeff,” and the trap-infused “The Passion,” SYRE is meant to showcase multiple sides of his personality.

“I love Batman because in the daytime he’s Bruce Wayne, and in the nighttime he’s Batman,” Jaden told Highsnobiety. “And I feel the exact same way because in the daytime I’m Jaden Smith, but in the nighttime I’m Syre — which is my middle name and the name of my album. That’s where I pull a lot of inspiration from — reminiscing on the past, thinking about the future, the world, about how far we’ve come with MSFTSrep, and everything that we’ve done.”

Despite the delay, Smith says the time is right. “I’m suited for right now,” he added. “I’m supposed to be here right now. If I would’ve come any earlier, people would’ve just tried to kill me.”

The album is also set to deliver on Jaden’s experimental influence. “I have a new genre I’m trying to work with that’s called Pop-Runk,” he told iHeartRadio. “I don’t really know what that means and there’s no definition for runk in the English dictionary. I feel like that’s what it is. It’s pop mixed with something you don’t know, that you don’t understand, that you cannot describe. I’m trying to take popular culture and mix it all together and give something new to the world.”

Posted by YeezysWorld on 7:21 PM

Remy Ma and Papoose are getting in the holiday spirit. The power couple is set to star in the VH1 special, “Remy & Papoose: A Merry Mackie Holiday.”

The one-hour event takes place in North Carolina where Rem and Pap have to organize a holiday gathering for family and friends, including Fat Joe, in just 72 hours.

The couple, who wed during a winter wonderland-themed ceremony in 2015, previously documented their nuptials on VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop: New York.” Both rappers will serve as co-executive producers, along with Mona Scott-Young and Stephanie R. Gayle for Monami Entertainment.

In 2013, T.I. and Tiny participated in an animated holiday special for VH1 titled “T.I. and Tiny: Holiday Hustle Special.”

Outside of the holiday special, Remy is working on her sophomore album, 7 Winters & 6 Summers. Earlier today, she released the video for her Lil’ Kim-assisted single “Wake Me Up.” The highly-anticipated follow-up to There’s Something About Remy is due early next year.

Swizz Beatz brought BX to Harvard.

Dressed in a black Bally suit with “From the Bronx to Harvard” written on the back, the acclaimed producer earned a certificate from the university after participating in their Business School’s Owner/President Management program, according to Page Six.

Beatz, 39, celebrated the accomplishment on Instagram with a throwback picture of his high school graduation. “Today is graduation day,” he wrote. “In life we must keep graduating until the end. When I say we must graduate I’m talking about on all levels not just school. This moment is special to me and my family because many people look up to me and they use my drive to thrive.”

He continued with a message to his former teachers and others. “Today I will become Harvard alumni and although I’m not getting an ‘MBA’ no one can EVER take this accomplishment away from me,” he added. “I was suppose to be gone a long time ago according to some of my old teachers :) This one is for you! Blessings! 🙏🏽 Never shoot people’s dreams down because you don’t have your own!!!!”

Beatz enrolled in the program back in 2014. “This might be one of the happiest days of my life,” he said at the time. “From BX to Harvard.”

Next up, Swizz plans to release a documentary about his journey. “#fromthebronxtoharvard Doc coming Soon,” he teased.
