[WATCH NOW]

It’s pretty obvious to anyone paying attention to Hip-Hop right now that Yung Miami and JT — the Florida-bred female rap duo better known as City Girls — are currently the chicks in charge. Their recently released music video for the remix to “Twerk” featuring Cardi B nearly broke the Internet last week, and we won’t be surprised to see the single rise up the Billboard 100 chart in the very near future because of it.

We got a chance to chop it up with Yung Miami — your girl is holding you down out here, JT! — here at The Source HQ in New York for a full breakdown of all things City Girls, including how their breakout hit “I’ll Take Your Man,” the Salt-N-Pepa sampled cut off their debut mixtape PERIOD, was actually inspired by one hilarious real-life event. She also speaks on how they got signed to Quality Control, the advice they’ve received from the label homies Migos, how their lives changed after being featured on Drake’s worldwide smash “In My Feelings,” and exactly what makes Girl Code the album you need to be spinning right now.

Watch our full “Up In The Source” feature with Yung Miami above, and stay tuned for a special announcement coming very soon!

What a time to be alive. Drake and Tory Lanez are gearing up to go on tour together.

Champagne Papi announced the European Tour with Lanez via social media on Monday night. “ASSASSINATION VACATION 😈🏝 UK and EU tour tickets on sale Friday!!!” wrote Drake on Instagram. “Me and @torylanez w/ opening sound set by @tiffanycalver.”

For all U.S. Drizzy and Fargo lovers, you better search for flights now because the tour kicks off in two months.

The Assassination Vacation Tour will take place between the months of March and April, and includes shows in the U.K., Ireland, France, Belgium, and the Netherlands. They will perform for multiple shows in one country.

When the former rivals squashed their beef Tory said, “We just spoke. We just spoke as two men, that was it. It wasn’t some crazy like candlelit room, like mafioso boss moment. We just spoke.” It’s nice to see the conversation led to a business opportunity. Maybe we’re in for a collaboration soon.

Check out the tour dates below:

Suge Knight Jr. is back with the wild Tupac Shakur claims.

According to the Death Row Records heir, Pac is not only alive but he’s working on new music in the studio. Knight posted on Instagram, “I got Pac back in the studio. New music coming.”

He doubled down in the comments adding, “This ain’t a joke. #NewDeathRow ??/?? Coming soon.” He dragged it and asked producers to send beats for this project. “I need the hottest producer to work on a project for ‘Pac,” he posted.

Suge Knight Jr. Says he has Tupac in the Studio

“First they call you crazy. Then they doubt you. And then they forget how they was treating you at first,” he said after people questioned his sanity.

Suge Knight Jr. Says he has Tupac in the Studio
This isn’t the first time Suge Knight Jr. made outrageous claims about Pac. Last October he claimed that he was alive and living in Malaysia.

“[Tupac] never left us. They’ll be after me soon smh. For y’all tho 💯,” he captioned a photo. He later posted a video appearing seemingly paranoid and someone was allegedly following him for speaking the truth. “I’m not on drugs,” he wrote in a follow-up post.

Happy birthday, Mac Miller!

From the start of his career until the unfortunate end that took him from us just over four months ago on September 7, 2018, Mac Miller was always an avid sneakerhead. His breakout mixtape hit “Nikes On My Feet” is one of the best examples on wax that represents a love for rubber soles, and one of the best uses of a classic Nas sample too, might we add. It wasn’t rare to find the Pittsburgh-bred MC rocking a fresh pair of Vans on the regular, or even hit the stage in some of the freshest pair of Js. Simply put, Mac was one of the most famous faces out there that shared our collective kick obsession, so we had to remember the GRAMMY-nominated rapper on what would’ve been his 27th birthday in a way we hope he would’ve appreciated.

Keep scrolling to see 5 of our favorite rap lyrics by Mac Miller that reference his love for sneakers, and share a few of your own favorite bars by the fallen rapper over on our Facebook and Twitter:


5. “Knock Knock” – K.I.D.S. (2010)

“New kicks give me cushion like whoopie
Keep a smile like an Eat’n Park cookie
Everything good, I’m white boy awesome
Up all night – Johnny Carson”


4. “Life Ain’t Easy” – Best Day Ever (2011)

“When I get old I’m a be real cool
Sittin’ on the porch with a fresh pair of shoes
Whole bunch of stories for the neighborhood kids
Tell ’em to believe, they be makin’ it big”


3. “Conversation Pt 1” – Swimming (2018)

“Okay, why you always hatin’?
Lacin’ up my sneakers I be running out of patience
Yeah, it ain’t your money ’till you make it
Otherwise, it’s just a conversation”


2.”No” – Piffsburgh (2011)

“Hype like pom-poms, tied into some Long Johns
Finally some brand new gear that I got on
New shoes and some twenty dollar socks on
Me and my people stay connected like a dot com”


1. “Nikes On My Feet” – K.I.D.S. (2010)

“I make ’em so mad, they got no swag
Pippens on my feet — they the throwbacks”


R.I.P., young Mac. Keep swimming forever…

R. Kelly and Sony are reportedly parting ways amid a storm of sexual misconduct against the veteran singer.

Billboard reports that the agreement was mutual.

R. Kelly has been accused multiple offenses of sexual misconduct including rape and involving in sexual relationships with underage girls. He’s also accused of manipulating the lives of multiple women.

The split comes a day after protestors rallied outside of Sony’s office in Midtown Manhattan. They came equipped with a petition for the record label to drop the “I Believe I Can Fly” singer and it had over 200,000 signatures.

Sony already announced that they had no intentions on funding any of the Pied Piper’s future projects. Now he is no longer on the label.

A former mistress of feared Mexican drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman told the jury in his U.S. trial on Thursday she was “traumatized” after a 2014 escape from one of his safe houses with Mexican marines on their trail.

Testifying for the U.S. Attorney’s office in federal court in Brooklyn, Lucero Sanchez Lopez, a local lawmaker in Guzman’s home state of Sinaloa, also gave a shocking recount of her relationship with Guzman, saying that she often feared for her life.

“I didn’t want for him to mistrust me because I thought he could also hurt me,”

Lucero Sanchez Lopez, 29, testified. “I was confused about my own feelings over him. Sometimes I loved him and sometimes I didn’t.”

She said once, while the two were eating dinner in 2012, Guzman told her that anyone who betrayed him would be executed.

Guzman, 61, who was extradited to the United States in 2017, has been on trial since November on charges of trafficking cocaine, heroin and other drugs into the country as leader of the Sinaloa Cartel. His trial has provided a window into the operations of the cartel, which is one of the biggest drug trafficking organizations in the world.

Future has reason to celebrate ahead of the release of his eleventh studio album, THE WIZRD. The “Crushed Up” rapper just earned his 77th entry on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

This ties him with Taylor Swift at the 10th spot for the most Hot 100 hits in the chart’s history, as per Billboard.

Future’s first entry was in 2011 as a guest on YC’s, “Racks.” The song reached No. 42, but 20 of Hendrixx’s solo records were all top 40. He made it in the top 10 twice with “Love Me” featuring Drake and Lil Wayne and 2017’s “Mask Off.” “Crushed Up” is currently at No. 46.

The Atlanta rapper trails behind Chris Brown, with 91 entries thanks to “Undecided,” Kanye West with 95, Jay-Z with 99, Nicki Minaj with 102, Lil Wayne with 161 and Drake with 192. The cast of Glee holds the top spot with 207 Billboard Hot 100 entries.

THE WIZRD drops today so his number of entries will undoubtedly increase.

After the Surviving R. Kelly documentary aired, Dame Dash made claims that he never agreed with JAY-Z working with R. Kelly on Best of Both Worlds because his late fiance, Aaliyah, told him she was raped by the singer.

Memphis Bleek called the bluff on Dame’s claims. “Everyone knows I fuck with Dame Dash, this is my guy, Roc-A-Fella history. But somebody gotta tell him, he’s buggin’,” Bleek said. “You buggin. And then you gonna really say, you wasn’t there with niggas? You was opposed to it? You f—–g lying.”

Speaking with Hip Hop Motivators‘ Kenyatta Griggs on Thursday, Dame dismissed the idea that he was down with the joint project and says Aaliyah was the reason he appeared in the “Fiesta” video.

“I really am not on the Best of Both Worlds. I didn’t go to a show. I didn’t have my name on any of that. I was in ‘Fiesta,’ but only because Aaliyah said she wanted me to do it that way.'”

People began pointing to the “Fiesta” visuals when Dame Dash claimed that Hov’s affiliation with R. Kelly was a factor in the downfall of Roc-a-Fella.

As Hip-Hop fans are currently enjoying the Yams Day 2019 festivities at Barclay Center, New Era is making sure anyone in attendance is laced with proper headwear to truly pay tribute on the 4th anniversary of the founding A$AP Mob member’s tragic loss.



Based off what we can see on the ‘Gram (as seen on the @HOT97 IG seen above), it’s looking like a fun-filled zoo in there! For those attending, New Era came up with two Yams-themed hats specifically designed in his memory, including a black 9TWENTY dad hat and the teal 9FIFTY snapback seen above. Similar to the merch collection we saw a few days ago that will also be on deck to cop, all proceeds from the sale of these items will go directly to the Always Strive and Prosper Foundation that will benefit charity organizations in honor of A$AP Yams’ memory. It’s great to see he’ll never be forgotten, whether it be through song or style.

The New Era Yams Day 2019 Collection will be available exclusively during the Barclays Center Yams Day show, followed by an online drop for those that couldn’t attend. R.I.P. Yams!

News that Travis Scott was joining Maroon 5 during the Super Bowl halftime performance in December, but it was officially announced three weeks later. That declaration just came after Scott reported that he and the NFL would give $500,000 to the non-profit social-justice association Dream Corps. The move was clearly made to show that he is still an ally and due to a great extent to the league’s treatment of former San Francisco 49ers quarterback, Colin Kaepernick.

Scott and Kaepernick reportedly had at least one phone discussion before the rapper confirmed his Super Bowl appearance, sources tell Variety. A source near Scott said that while the two did not really agree, they understood and respected each other’s stance manner and he felt that the cash going toward Dream Corps, joined with the stage given by the Super Bowl, will benefit a few. The source additionally said that Scott would not confirm his performance until the point when the donation was secured.

A rep from the Know Your Rights camp completely denied Scott’s claims. “I use my personal ig for my personal opinion. I would always take a positive platform to share the good work of our Know Your Rights camp where we are impacting thousands of lives rather than to add on to a conversation such as the one above that offers no value,” said Patricia Robinson.

After the three entertainers were confirmed, an appeal by Change.org requesting that Maroon 5 canceled his performance, which had gathered almost 85,000 signatures, was updated to ask them all to take a knee during their performance. “It appears these artists aren’t backing out at this point. So now what?,” the petition reads. “There’s one way they can still redeem their reputation with their fans. Maroon 5, Travis Scott and Big Boi: take a knee during your set.”

Drake is set to rake in a few million for his Las Vegas residency.

The Blast reports that Champagne Papi inked a $10 million deal for a residency at the XS Nightclub inside the Wynn Las Vegas. He previously hinted at a residency the last time he performed at the nightclub.

“Vegas! When I came back, I thought it’d be back at T-Mobile Arena or some (stuff),” Drake said during his 30-minute set at the Wynn last Thursday (Jan. 10). “But I’ll be back here at XS all year. You’ll have a lotta chances to see me.”

The news of Drake’s residency comes after the launch of his luxury champagne, Mod Sélection, in partnership with California-based entrepreneur, Brent Hocking. Two years ago, Champagne Papi launched his Virginia Black Whiskey.

Although he hasn’t officially announced the residency himself, the “In My Feelings” rapper posted a picture of his recent performance at the venue with a caption that reads, “New home.”

Rap fans won’t soon forget the memory of A$AP Mob founder Steven Rodriguez, respectfully known by his official a.k.a. A$AP Yams, especially now that Yams Day has become a sort of cultural event amongst the new age of loyal Hip-Hop listeners. For 2019, not only is his annual celebration of life back in NYC, but the show will also be accompanied by a handful of merch drops in collaboration with a few major players in the streetwear community.



The first label that will surely gain fanfare is the Champion hoodie and sweatpants set designed by Virgil Abloh’s OFF-WHITE™. Further collabs come in the form of other respectable brands, including Cactus Plant Flea Market, plus additional tribute merch in memory of rapper Fredo Santana who passed away from a fatal seizure one year ago this week (Jan 19). The Mob shows respective love for their fallen brother as well, with A$AP Illz and A$AP Twelvyy both creating collaborative pieces with their brands Disco Inferno and LYBB, respectively.

If songs like “Half on a Baby,” “Get Up On A Room,” and even the deep cuts like “2nd Kelly” have been permanently deleted off your bedroom playlists, PizzaSlime has the perfect T-Shirt to show the world that you’ve officially joined the #MuteRKelly movement, which gained an average of 2.1 million new members based on the ratings from Lifetime’s Surviving R. Kelly three-night docuseries that aired last week.



The shirt uses the infamously unflattering mugshot of R. Kelly from his stay at Dade County Jail, a photo that was also used as his official police handout photo back in January 2003 after being arrested on charges of child pornography. He was acquitted of those charges, but the video tape at the center of the trial unfortunately tells a different story.

Here’s how PizzaSlime describes their stance with this jab at the unceremoniously-dethroned former King of R&B:

“F**K R.KELLY!

If you haven’t watched the docuseries “Surviving R.Kelly” then you need to immediately

Times up for R.Kelly and he needs to be canceled forever

R.Kelly is a real piece of sh*t and he has to be stopped

Pizzaslime supports the survivors/victims of R.Kelly and we stand with the #MuteRKelly movement

ALL PROCEEDS FROM THIS SHIRT ARE BEING DONATED TO #MuteRKelly”

If this is the energy you’re on for 2019, pick up the PizzaSlime #MuteRKelly T-Shirt right now for $33 USD online.

Following the release of the Surviving R. Kelly documentary, many people have been trying to show their support for the victims by siding with them as opposed to taking R. Kelly’s side.

Chance The Rapper, Nick Cannon, Ne-Yo, and Tank are among the many people who vowed to stop supporting the disgraced singer. Chance and Nick even apologized for collaborating with the Pied Piper. However, RCA Records have been under fire for enabling Kells for years and it looks like they’re finally about to do something about it.

TMZ reports that RCA/Sony will not be financially supporting any of R. Kelly’s upcoming projects until the criminal investigation against him in Georgia is resolved. The “I Admit” singer has to complete two more albums under his deal but the label isn’t putting any money behind his music or videos.

The label could possibly be sued if they drop R. Kelly without any criminal charges to justify breaching the contract. On the other hand, they will be caught up in a public relations whirlwind if they release any of his music while the #MuteRKelly movement continues to grow.

Travis Scott has been experiencing some good sneaker moments lately as an official member of Team Nike, from dropping his own Air Force 1 and Air Jordan 4 colorways to even having The Shoe Surgeon recently customize the latter in a premium “Cactus Jack”-themed colorway. The rapper’s latest Swoosh delivery appears to be a new iteration of the Air Jordan 33, the latest model in Michael Jordan’s iconic signature series.



Possibly following a cactus-colored theme to represent the ASTROWORLD MC’s self-started record label, this AJ33 utilizes “Army Olive” on the base, paired together with neon yellow accents, black paneling and a suede heel counter that’s described as “Ale Brown.” The performance specs are in place of course — the FastFit outsole is a standout feature — but more people will mainly be copping these for the special design details, like the “Cactus Jack” crossword logo etched on the tongue.

Will keep you updated as more info and official imagery arrives for the Travis Scott x Air Jordan 33 NRG, which is expected to hit retailers on January 27. Peep the preview below:

After linking up last month with A$AP Rocky for the GOLF le FLEUR* / GOLF WANG AW18 campaign, Tyler, The Creator has another drop in collaboration with his Converse fam, this time decking out the One Star in a completely silver colorway.



The “3M” iteration is covered entirely with the metallic colorway, save for an orange outsole and white rubber midsole with matching laces. Also included with the drop is a matching bomber jacket in similar hues, complete with an orange inner lining and “GOLF le FLEUR*” etched across the back. As Tyler himself is one MC that always stands out amongst his peers, style-wise and lyricial talent alike, the luminosity seen in his latest Converse collab is right on the money with what we expected.

Look for the Tyler, The Creator x Converse GOLF le FLEUR* One Star “3M” to drop exclusively online and via Dover Street Market on January 12, with the One Star going for $110 USD and the bomber jacket priced at $150 USD. See both below:

From leggings and performance bras for the ladies to rolling trays for the ones that really like to get lifted, Spitta’s small offering is a handful of cool items that definitely reflects the Pilot Talk MC’s personal style as well. The standouts of the bunch are hands down the collection of “Roll Up and Get Paid” beanies, which have double tags for those that like the extra roll with their skully steez without compromising the logo placement. The set of white tees available come in either blue or red font options, and simply say “Jet Life” because, well, #JETSGO!

Cop Curren$y’s latest Jet Life Apparel drop right now online, and expect more in the near future and hopefully some new music in the process as well. Check to see what’s available below:
