Floyd Mayweather Jr. maybe actually taking his talents to the UFC if the money is right.

On Tuesday, Mayweather posted a short clip on Instagram of him stepping into an MMA cage, before Conor McGregor hilariously responded with “Keep up the good work, my son. Yours sincerely, Senior.”

The 14-second video is the latest in a series of recent social media posts from Mayweather.

On Monday, he posted a photo of him landing a punch on McGregor from their boxing match in August. And on Tuesday, Mayweather put up a short video of him stepping into an MMA cage.

Mayweather, of course, welcomed Conor McGregor to the boxing ring last summer, schooling the UFC lightweight champion before winning by 10th-round TKO in “The Money Fight” that did huge numbers and raked in a ton of cash. Mayweather said afterward that he was officially retired, but he continues to tease another possible crossover.

The idea of a 40-year-old with no MMA experience would have a chance in the octagon with an MMA champ is crazy. What is even crazier is the amount of money this potential fight would generate.

Tinashe has just released the first of three new songs she recently hinted that she would be dropping soon. ‘No Drama’ is a collaboration with Migos’ Offset, a well known trap-infused R&B demeanor that singers often find themselves in. There’s been no word on a release date for her long-awaited project Joyride, but for now this will hold her fans down.

‘No Drama’ video is a rhinestone-studded visual featuring both Tinashe and Offset. You catch Tinashe dancing in a room with backup dancers before she struts a dark hallway and then meets up with Offset which turns out to be in a prison.

Two of Britain’s finest talents come together for a record, Jorja Smith and grime MC Stormzy release a haunting ballad “Let Me Down” which is a melancholic exploration into a one-sided relationship, and now we get a visual treatment for the song. It is a very enchanting video; a great insight into UK’s emerging mainstream, very urban influence which has essentially been co-signed by Drake.

The music video features Jorja Smith in a blond wig and a trench coat, partaking in a James Bond-esque tale of love and murder. Stormzy, whose only cameo at the end of the video seems to be a boss of sorts, only finding out about the completed task once the job is done.

No rookie to the industry, Nipsey Hussle was once signed to Epic Records before parting ways to start his own independent label All Money In Records. From the release of his first mixtape Slauson Boy Volume 1 to now, the timeline of events prove how worthy Nipsey is of all the success he has garnered.

In a new TIDAL exclusive documentary titled 10 Rings, Nipsey takes fans on his personal journey detailing the strategic moves that helped define his career and notoriety, including the marketing strategy that attracted Jay-Z to his brand and turning down multiple deals from various labels and why he decided to partner with Atlantic Records.

The 10 Rings documentary features his business partner and brother, Blacc Samm and SVP of A & R at Atlantic Records, Dallas Martin. Running a little over nine minutes, the visual was directed by Kid Art, executive produced by Cartier Brown and associate produced by Rocko Rathon and Frank Colonia in collaboration with Chariot Pictures. In addition to the documentary, TIDAL is giving away tickets to Nipsey Hussle’s album release show at the Hollywood Paladium on February 15, 2018, where Nipsey will perform tracks off of the highly-anticipated Victory Lap a day before it’s release. Tidal members can head to TIDAL.com/NipseyHussle to watch the video and enter for a chance to win tickets to TIDAL X: Nipsey Hussle.
