Following the untimely death of  Mac Miller, friends plan to honor the young rapper with a concert entitled Mac Miller: A Celebration of Life on Halloween Night at The Greek Theatre in Los Angeles. The concert will feature some of Mac’s celebrity friends, such as Travis Scott, SZA, Chance The Rapper, Schoolboy Q, Ty Dolla $ign, Miguel and many more. Proceeds from the performances are said to be going to The Mac Miller Circles Fund.

Another big story in the news today in the world of Hip-Hop and entertainment, we’ve highlight a young man that has made a name for himself for robbing big named celebrities. 19-year-old Tyress Williams is charged with four felony counts of first-degree residential burglary. Williams was allegedly targeting famous people’s homes. One of the residences hit was superstar singer, Rihanna. According to the LA Times, Williams is believed to work with a crew of other thieves.  LAPD stated that there is a list floating around that also included LeBron James, Viola Davis, and Matt Damon.

Ending on a higher note….

The film, How High 2, is expected to premiere on MTV in 2019. It’s going to be the follow up to the 2001 cult classic starring Red Man and Method man. Lil Yachty was one of the first people casted, but he’s not the only newcomer to co-star in the upcoming sequel. The Real Housewives of Atlanta, reality TV star NeNe Leakes and Comedian DC Young Fly have both inked a role on MTV’s How High sequel. Nene took to her IG to share some pics on set with DC, Lil Yachty, and DeRay Davis. DC Young Fly is said to be playing a stoner named Calvin who is playing Leakes’ nephew.

We are back again with the juicy Source Report with Danteé. 50 Cent releases the infamous ‘Get The Strap’ music video with Tekashi, Casanova and Uncle Murder over the weekend. The video has some violence here and there, but it definitely has the gritty New York Hip-Hop vibe that we know him to be about. We are at least happy to see Casonava and Tekashi in the same video repping the same lingo.

In other news, Birdman took to stage to apologize publicly to Lil Wayne for everything that has been going on between them. This is great news as we all know over the years, they have been going back and forth about money issues. Hopefully, they stick together and give us awesome music that we know them for.

Today on The Source Report, our correspondent Dantee Ramos breaks down everything that is going on in Hip-Hop culture that affects your world.

The MTV Video Music Awards are today at 9pm. The star studded night will take place here in New York City, at the Radio City Music Hall. Cardi B, JLO, Nicki Minaj and other lights of the music world will hit the stage at Radio City Music Hall for the 2018 VMAs. The VMA nominations have people talking too, Cardi racked up 10 noms including Artist of the Year, Best New Artist, and Best Hip Hop.

The Beyoncé and Jay-Z are not too far behind with 8 nominations for their surprise album Everything is Love. Both Childish Gambino & Drake grabbed seven total nominations and Bruno has six nominations. Jennifer Lopez will receive the Video Vanguard award and is scheduled to perform. She is sure the ignite the stage with a fire performance.

J Lo is not the only thing on fire in the culture. The war between Birdman and Lil Wayne could soon be reignited. The new feud could be about Aspire Music Group, co-founded by Lil Wayne’s manager Cortez Bryant suing Cash Money Records and Universal Music. Aspire is accusing Cash Money of holding  out on royalties owed from Drake’s music catalogue. Aspire claims they discovered drake which contracts for a 1/3 share in the net profits of Drakes first six albums. Cash Money wants Aspire to drop their lawsuit against them. It doesn’t stop there, Birdman is also suing for fraud and interference with contractual relations.

Earlier this year Cash Money settled their lawsuit with Lil Wayne. This is a separate case with Aspire Music Group altogether but Neither Lil Wayne or Young Money are named as defendants in the countersuit.

Lastly, ESPN will not broadcast the national anthem before NFL games this season.

At ESPN’s football media day, ESPN president Jimmy Pitaro announced that the network does not plan to show the National Anthem during its broadcasts of either college or professional football this season. Most would say this is the world’s largest sports television network attempts to steer around the backlash against NFL players who have protested racial injustice and police brutality by kneeling during the anthem for the past two years.

The NFL has been widely criticized for its handling of the anthem protests, especially by Trump via Twitter stating the NFL ratings have dropped since.

Today on The Source Report, our correspondent Zae Diggs (no relation to Taye Diggs) breaks down what’s going on in Hip-Hop.
Everybody knows that Nicki Minaj is currently doing her press for her new Queen album.  And with the release of this new project, she in making amends with many that she has fallen out with over the years and at the same time adding gas to the flames some relationships that she set on fire to recently.
She squashed beef with Hot 97 radio personality and DJ, Funkmaster Flex and gave him an interview that people are still talking about. She also gave one hell of an interview to Stephen Colbert. Both interviews focused heavily on the talk of the town: Her new song, “Barbie Dreams.” While it seems hearts and sunflowers, the release of the new album has sparked a war of words between exes, Nicki Minaj and her former boyfriend, reality star/rapper Safaree. Safaree now makes a new claim that the Queen femcee stabbed him in the past (while they were boo’d up) and he had to lie to the cops so that she wouldn’t go to jail. Nicki must not have like that because she then shared that he and Tyga went to the same hairline doctor and that her ex man’s (who was not mentioned in “Barbie Dreams”) hairline fell out because God simply doesn’t like ugly.
Since then, Safaree claims that this morning he woke up to a deal for a book deal worth 500k and a endorsement deal for hairline for men. God is Good all the time! Hopefully these two can be cordial and continue to get money !
Now, somebody who know about getting to the bag is businessman, 50 Cent. He got money with the Vitamin Water brand, followed by the French vodka EFFEN and now the Get Rich or Die Tryin rapper is launching his own line of champagne, Le Chemin du Roi. 50 announced the coming of the drink back in April on Instagram. 50 Cent’s new champagne, is set to launch on August 17 in Atlantic City at the Ocean Resort Casino where the Power star is set to make an appearance at the HQ2 nightclub.

Lastly on The Source Report, Tyler the Creator has revealed the roster for the 2018 Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival. The headliners will include KIDS SEE GHOST, the collaborative project by Kanye West and Kid Cudi. The “carnival” performance will be the first time that the duo will perform their joint album. The show will also feature Lauryn Hill, Pusha T, Jorja Smith, Jaden Smith and many more.

The seventh annual Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival will take place at Los Angeles’ Dodger Stadium grounds on November 10th and 11th. Tickets go on sale on Friday, August 17th at noon.

The Source team checked out One Africa Music Fest presented by Paulo Okoye in Coney Island, Brooklyn this weekend and were able to see exactly why Africa is the mother of all culture. International phenoms like Wizkid, Casper Nyovest, Wande Coal, Sarkodie and Flavor took stage and brought Afrobeats vibes and culture to the city, showcasing their talents to thousands of fans.

One Africa Music Fest introduces African pop music to the Hip-Hop space and The Source was here for it. Whether bopping to Afrobeats or listening to Nigerian tinged rap, this sold out event opened our audience to a world so far away (but feels just like home).

Happy Monday! Today on The Source Report, our correspondent Zae Diggs (no relation to Taye Diggs), talks about how the whole world lost its mind over the weekend when Nicki Minaj released her long-awaited album, Queen, on Friday.  One song in particular that has everyone talking is called “Barbie Dreams.”  The song talks about all the guys she might want to sleep with in the industry if they could shake one or two of their quirks.

Kanye West also released a controversial song. A new track called “Xtacy” implied that he would  smash all four of his sisters in law. The legendary DJ Clark Kent released the track on Twitter and like the Queen record, caused FANdomonium. 

Someone else who had an exciting weekend was Spike Lee. This weekend, his critically acclaimed film BlacKkKlansman turned in a solid profit for its opening weekend. Based on BlackKkKlansman’s $15 million budget, the Brooklyn director looks to cash in on his investment and then some earning 10.8 million this opening weekend.

Check out the video above and let us know what you think.

Ron Stallworth decided to punctuate the 70s with a spotlighted exclamation point. The statement spoke loudly in 1979— like the drumbeat under Flash’s “Superrappin.” And in true Hip-Hop fashion, this brave and pioneering Black police officer disrupted the status quo of Colorado Springs.

First he did by being the first African-American hired as a police cadet (later undercover officer) in that city, and then by infiltrating the Klu Klux Klan, becoming a member of the notorious hate group. Of course, his membership made many in that organization sick with embarrassment and made a fool of one of its most obnoxious and arrogant leaders, David Duke.

This really happened…

A Black guy during the end of the 70s,  joined the KKK and had his membership certificate signed by the racist Duke himself. And while almost everyone thinks that their life should be made into a movie… this guy’s life really should’ve be made into a movie. Enter Jordon Peele and the one and only Spike Lee.

Peele (Executive Producer) and Lee (Co-Writer and Director) collaborated to bring this story to the big screen as the award winning BlacKkKlansman that is set to debut today. And while elite film festivals like Cannes and all of the trade ‘zines have boasted how dope this film is… we had to see it for ourselves, assess it through our unique cultural lens and see if it faired well against Spike’s classics like Malcolm X or Do The Right Thing.

We were not about to let “those” folks define what was poppin’ for us.

We saw it.

This movie was everything that we could have possibly hoped for and then some.

Let’s start with the cast.

Taking the lead is John David Washington. Morehouse man (no surprise, Spike’s films are riddled with Maroon Tigers). Former NFL Player (that’s a little shocking… who knew). Cinematic Legacy (His mom is Pauletta Washington and his dad Denzel). None of that matters… well it does but he didn’t need any of those things to validate him and or persuade critics to celebrate him in this role. He just was good. Real good.

Washington finessed this role and made us believe the Spikean interpolation of this biopic. Such strong presence on the screen, he made each and every other character in the film look a little less shiny …and let’s face it he was up there with some vets like Corey Hawkins, Topher Grace or Ryan Eggold that should have eclipsed him.

The Source was able to sit down and talk to leads John David (Ron Stallworth) and Laura Harrier (Patrice) to find out what made this film so special. The was light, yet respectful of the honor to rock these roles. Listen to both these millennials embrace the two-fold history of being in a Spike Lee Joint and acting in this period piece.

This week the award winning and highly anticipated film, BlacKkKlansman, hits the big screen and everyone and their mamas are excited to see Spike smash the box office one more ‘gain.

The Source’s red carpet correspondent, Dante Ramos rocked out at the Brooklyn premiere of the movie and was able to get the cast and supporters at their most candid. Darlings like Tiffany Haddish, Bresha Webb came out for first look to see the film that so many are whispering “Oscar” about. Cast members are giddy with excitement to share their work. But the highlight of the carpet is when Ramos gets the real Ron Stallworth to show just how incredibly Hip-Hop he is by busting out his favorite N.W.A. verse, “Straight Out of Compton.”

Check out all that came out to celebrate this new film.

The movie BlacKkKlansman is based on the true story about a Black police officer named Ron Stallworth, who in the late 70s and early 80s, shut down the Colorado Springs chapter of the Klu Klux Klan. This Spike Lee directed and Jordan Peele produced biopic promises to make you laugh inappropriately, marvel at the looping current of history and intensely reflect on the current world around you.

This cinematic team comes together to create movie gold by mining the truest gem of a cast: John David Washington (Ron Stallworth), Corey Hawkins (Stokely Carmichael/ Kwame Ture), Laura Harrier (Patrice), muMs da Schemer, Harry Belafonte, Toper Grace (David Duke), the hilarious Ashlie Atkinson and even Alec Baldwin.

Today on The Source Report, we salute one of the most classic records in the history of Hip-Hop.

Exactly 30 years ago on 8/8/88, N.W.A. dropped Straight Outta Compton, introducing to world what is now known as “gangsta rap’. Without a lot of radio promotion or marketing, this album caused a huge stir around the nation. It even drew attention from the federal government, with the FBI and U.S. Secret Service sending letters to Ruthless about the violent message of “F*ck The Police.” N.W.A.’s popularity with the law increased their fan base and record sales.

This episode also recognizes the how Hip-Hop is dominating the charts. Travis Scott’s standout ASTROWORLD is poised to take Drake out of the top spot on the charts with a strong debut week of over 450,000 units.  But Drake and Travis are not the only rappers killing the game.  Mac Miller’s new album Swimming and YG’s Stay Dangerous  will also make top 5 debuts. Swimming’s first week efforts will clock in between 44,000 and 48,000, while STAY DANGEROUS is slightly ahead in between 52,000 and 57,000 units.Hip-Hop as a whole will occupy the top five spots on the chart.

Travis Scott, Mac Miller, and YG will be joined by Drake’s Scorpion at number 2.
