Thousands of people are compelling Maroon 5 to drop out of the Super Bowl Halftime Show.

About a month ago, it was reported that Rihanna declined to perform for the league’s biggest game in support of Colin Kaepernick, the previous 49ers QB who’s in a progressing collusion case with the NFL.

The 31-year-old player filed a grievance against the association in 2017, guaranteeing he was boycotted for his peaceful protest against police brutality. From that point forward, numerous fans, big names, and activists have made a move against the NFL for their treatment of Kaepernick. One of these people is Vic Oyedeji, the man behind the Change.org request for Maroon 5 to drop out of the Super Bowl Halftime Show.

“Maroon 5 has made music over the years featuring artists from all genres, including Rihanna, Cardi B, and Kendrick Lamar—all of whom have publicly supported Kaepernick in his decision to protest the violent racism sweeping the United States. Maroon 5 must do the same,” the petition reads. “The band has a chance to stand on the right side of history […] Rihanna, JAY-Z, Amy Schumer, and others have refused to work with the NFL. Maroon 5: Americans look to artists and celebrities as leaders, and you have huge opportunity to use your influence to take a stand.”

Drake made sure to make it up to his fans during the first Miami show of the Aubrey and the Three Migos. The Scorpion rapper brought out Lil Wayne, DJ Khaled and Latin Trap Bad Bunny to perform their collaborations.

Drizzy brought out Khaled first who kicked it off with his first number one record, “All I Do Is Win” which features the Toronto native. At that point, the crowd erupted when Bad Bunny touched the stage to perform their new song, “Mia.”

If that wasn’t enough, the OVO honcho brought out Lil Wayne to perform “Uproar” off  Tha Carter V., and Weezy pulled out his best dance moves.

Miami fans were definitely in for a treat last night. Check out some videos below:

Before Anderson .Paak releases his junior studio album, he stopped by Power 106 to drop a two-minute freestyle over Junior M.A.F.I.A.’s 1995 cut “Get Money.”

Before rapping about a range of topics from his childhood to his career wins, the West Coast rapper saluted Biggie Smalls then went crazy on the beat.

“I was made to beat the odds, something outta nothin’/You afraid to take a loss, I lost my older brother, sister, father, auntie, cousin/I got nothin’ left but y’all,” he spits. “[…] I rep the ‘Nard, even when you never knew it with my first release party, until n****s came through it/First I got a lawyer, moved my mom to Georgia, got my sister a Honda, talk about spoiled/If I can’t get radio, I’m snatching up the products/Apple, Google, Amazon, Spota.”

Check out the freestyle in its entirety below:

Anderson .Paak’s album, Oxnard, is slated to be released on November 16th. During his appearance on L.A. Leakers, he spoke about his star-studded guest list including Pusha-T, J. Cole, Kendrick Lamar, Dr. Dre, and Snoop Dogg.

“Everybody that I wanted to be on the album, they came through. It was no Hollywood, label stuff,” he said. “If they didn’t show up to the studio, they sent it right in and they was like, ‘I got you.'”

Far from an overnight success that he may appear to the casual fan, ChillinIt has been patiently developing and honing his craft for many years into one of the most exciting rappers to emerge out of Australia. Getting somewhat of a breakthrough via the influential Hustle Hard TV YouTube some six years ago, the talented and versatile Sydney rapper has recently released his excellent debut album “Women, Weed & Wordplay” to widespread critical acclaim and success. With an impressive independent 1.5 million-plus streams with no playlist help or distribution deal in the first week alone, the proof is in the numbers for the versatile wordsmith with the album charting at #1.

Along with contemporaries Wombat, Nerve, Talakai, Shadow, Huskii, Lil Sknow, Mitchos Da Menace, Triple One, TRYL and Skrub, ChillinIt has led the charge for the new generation of skilled emcees to emerge from down under – aided by the excellent work that the affiliated Body Bag Media platform has been able to develop. Building on the style of the independent foundation created by the likes of Kerser, Fraksha, Fortay, and Alex Jones before him, ChillinIt has certainly emerged in the last year or two with a legion of fans and a strong potential to take his refreshing sound truly global. His music has already organically linked him to the UK, scoring a spot on JDZ Media and a collaboration with English grime emcee Kamakaze.

The charismatic ChillinIt oozes star factor and has cultivated a family of fans known as the #420Fam. It is easy to see why he has developed such a rabid following in the recent years, with skills and authenticity on the microphone only matched by his energetic live shows that have many saying are some of the best in the country. There’s no rapping off phones, there’s no stumbling and fumbling his way through live shows just near complete hungry, raw, professionalism. Amassing tens of millions streams/views in the last year or so alone, ChillinIt definitely has the potential to be one of the first rappers from Australia to truly break through to the contemporary American market and has already sparked significant major record label interest. The hungry rapper is keen to showcase his many different styles with lyrical content to match almost any mood.

If reaction videos were a gauge of his potential overseas, he may eventually prove to be as fire globally as he is at home. With a strong, consistent work ethic already in the young talented artist, it will be an interesting few coming months to see how ChillinIt is able to negotiate his increasingly new levels of success which only seems to develop by the hour. A truly talented rapper at the core, Australia is proud that such an artist is leading the charge and expect him to level up again soon. Expect to see him on further major Australasian tour support and festival slots by his own accord soon – before taking the world by storm.

Check his debut album “Women, Weed & Wordplay” streaming now and catch up on his extensive back catalog before it’s a Chill takeover. #420Family

The Spice Girls are reuniting, minus Victoria Beckham.

Emma “Baby Spice” Bunton, Geri “Ginger Spice” Halliwell Horner, Melanie “Mel C” Chisholm and Melanie “Mel B” Brown declared their United Kingdom tour Monday on the official Spice Girls Twitter account.

The four showed up, without “Posh Spice,” Victoria Beckham, in a parody video sharing the news of the tour. They will be joined by special guest, Jess Glynne.

The girl group split in 1998 amid becoming one of the UK’s biggest girl groups ever.

Bunton prodded a Spice Girls reunion on Monday. The vocalist burst into chuckling on her Heart Radio breakfast show and declined to answer inquiries regarding whether Spice Girls were reuniting.

Co-host Jamie Theakston inquired as to whether reports of a reunion tour were true, and Bunton, at last, gave in and stated: “Everything would be announced on social media at 15:00 GMT (10 a.m. ET). I’m just excited, I want it out there.”

The Sun newspaper was the first to report that they’re reuniting for a tour without Posh Spice. On Monday the Spice Girls additionally entered the Twittersphere and persuaded a few fans they were currently a foursome.

The @spicegirls account was created in October and the photograph only shows Bunton, Halliwell Horner, Chisholm and Brown. The first tweet stated, “Our broadcast continues shortly… #FriendshipNeverEnds.”

There has been speculation about the girl group reuniting in the past. Back in February, Mel B appeared on The Real and sparked speculation that they would be performing at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding. However, that never happened.

Fans have been waiting for this moment ever since images of the ladies surfaced having lunch at Halliwell Horner’s home.

Sheck Wes’ “Mo Bomba” song is undeniably one of the hottest Hip-Hop songs of the year and the single made its way to Late Night television in an energetic and horrifying performance.

Sheck brought his high-energy single that is named after his NBA player friend to The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and infused the performance with a Halloween theme. With a basketball hoop on stage, Sheck brought in a varsity basketball team to replicate the energy he gave off while dressed as Jeepers Creepers. In an amazing way to tie it all together, the horror cult classic also focuses on a team of varsity jacket dressed high school students.

Following the success of his most recent singles, “Taste” and “Swish,” Tyga is continuing the winning streak of his successful comeback with his new Nicki Minaj-assisted single, “Dip.”

The Queen songstress definitely added sparkle to the record. Aside from addressing her recent physical altercation with Cardi B during New York Fashion Week, she may have sent shots to Drake.

“All these niggas want me to love ’em like I’m Kiki / Got ’em in they feelings since they seen me in FEFE (Ooh),” she spits towards the end of the track.

Coincidentally, the last time Drake and Nicki were spotted together was after her Tekashi 6ix9ine collaboration, “FEFE” was released. In the clip that Nicki posted to Instagram, you can hear Drake ask her “What’s your song called again, Fefe?”

Tekashi wanted all the smoke with Drizzy over the Summer. The “GUMMO” rapper tried to boast superiority over the 6 God by noting that he has an unbroken Billboard streak, and being a “real gangsta” in comparison to Drake who lost his rap feud to Pusha T.

Oddly, Drizzy didn’t promote Nicki Minaj’s latest album, Queen, but he did show love to Travis Scott’s project who also felt Nicki’s wrath over the Summer.

Although the “Barbie Dreams” emcee wished Drizzy a happy birthday last week, that bar sounded like a shot.

We’re not saying that there’s trouble in paradise or that her new bond with Tekashi is the reason, we’re just reporting our observations.

A rare freestyle in what is allegedly Mac Miller’s first interview recently surfaced the web. Miller appears to be in High School and has no tattoos.

The unreleased freestyle video was taken by Masked Gorilla in 2010 when Miller was 18 years of age. In the YouTube video depiction, the production’s organizer Roger Gengo shared some insight about the day the video was recorded:

Here’s a video of Mac Miller freestyling in 2010 after I interviewed him for Masked Gorilla. He was still in highschool. So was I. It was before he released K.I.D.S. Before he had any tattoos. It was his first interview. It was mine too. He was in New York City for a few days. Before he left to fly home I met him at his hotel near the airport. I was incredibly nervous driving there. So nervous that, even though his manager Quinten instructed me to come up to the room when I arrived, I waited in the lobby for him to tell me again. Eventually Q came down. I asked Q why they were in NYC. Someone flew them out, but their parents didn’t know the trip was paid for, so they gave them travel money. They were excited about that. We were, literally, all just kids pretending that we knew what we were doing. I walked into the hotel room and greeted Mac. He was very energetic. I don’t think either of us could believe that the other wanted to do the interview. We filmed the interview. It felt like the greatest thing I had ever done in my life. Then we all piled in my mom’s car to get food. We did some other things, too, then I dropped him back off at the hotel.

Mac Miller passed away on Sept. 7, of an overdose, when he was 26. The terrible news landed about a month after he released his fifth studio album, Swimming, in which he talked about his fight with substance abuse and self-esteem.

His Self Care Tour, in help of the collection, was set to commence on Oct. 27. The tribute show, Mac Miller: A Celebration of Life will be live-streamed at Los Angeles’ Greek Theater on Oct. 31 at 6:30 p.m. PT/9:30 p.m. ET.

The occasion will profit the Mac Miller Circles Fund, which plans to help youngsters in underserved communities by giving them access to programming and extra assets fixated on inventiveness and network building. Travis Scott, SZA, John Mayer, Action Bronson, Chance the Rapper, Earl Sweatshirt, Thundercat, and Vince Staples are among those on the lineup for the show.

DJ Spin King had a set and brought the youth-driven energy to the building. He brought out A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie and the G4 Boyz. But the fans were really in for a treat when the self-proclaimed King of New York took the stage.

The crowd echoed back all of his Billboard charting hits including “GUMMO,” “FEFE,” and more.

This was a huge moment for the Brooklyn rapper because due to his controversial reputation, he isn’t allowed to perform in many places and rarely performs in his hometown.

Jay Rock has been killing it on his “The Big Redemption” tour, which we were blessed to hit up when it kicked off in NYC back in September, and now he’s giving us the treat we’ve all been waiting for: the official music video for the standout cut off Redemption, featuring none other than Kendrick Lamar.

You really get a sense of Jay Rock and K. Dot’s nostalgia for Cali by going on a ride with them to the past, and also through their neighborhood in a red Dodge Charger. The car itself seems to hold real significance to both TDE rappers’ past before they got famous.

Directed by Jack Begert, this is a no-frills ride through the ‘hood, with some artistic cuts back and forth between the present and clips via a VHS recording effect to emulate the past. There is some fire, and we’re not just talking about the verses! Thankfully, flames are always therapeutic to watch.

Check out Jay Rock and Kendrick Lamar in the “Wow Freestyle” video above, and see him perform the song live on The Big Redemption Tour by purchasing tickets here. Tell us how you feel over on our Twitter, Facebook and Instagram!

The TIDAL X benefit show returned to New York City for the fourth year on Oct. 23. The event had a star-studded line up of artists who joined forces to raise awareness and resources directed towards criminal justice reform in America, with a special performance at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.

The line-up included Lil Wayne, Ms. Lauryn Hill, Anderson .Paak, and Meek Mill, who has continued to fight for the rights of criminals in his hood following his release.

The TIDAL X show included shorter sets from Normani, Kodak Black, Teyana Taylor, Lil Skies, Black Thought, Vic Mensa, The Lox, BlocBoy JB, SiR, Snoh Aalegra, DaniLeigh, and some more. All proceeds from the night will be donated to criminal justice reform efforts and non-profit organizations across the United States. Fans can purchase tickets or donate to the cause on TIDAL.

Last year’s event was successful and donations went to victims of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico. Check out footage from last night’s show.

The lady who played the role of Melania Trump and T.I’s. own lap dancer in the rapper’s erotic video has no regrets accepting the gig, regardless of getting death threats.

Melanie Marden tells TMZ her life has been threatened every day. She can’t believe that people’s feathers are so ruffled they’re attacking an actress who’s simply just trying to make a living. Marden also takes jabs at Trump’s reps for taking rap videos too seriously.

The performer thinks everybody needs to chill and be concerned with pressing issues, such as finding the cure for cancer.

Melanie is not backing down from depicting the First Lady in a sexual light, but she does say that the message could’ve been delivered better.

With the 25th anniversary of Wu-Tang Clan’s debut album, Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) quickly drawing closer, the legendary New York group is doing a few things to celebrate the project. On Saturday night (Oct. 20), they were special guests on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and performed classic cuts like, “Secure Ya Neck” and “C.R.E.A.M.”

All living members of the group were present including, RZA, GZA, Method Man, Raekwon, Ghostface Killah, U-God, Cappadonna, Inspectah Deck and Masta Killa shook the stage. ODB’s son rapped in place of his late dad. The first song they performed was “Secure Ya Neck.” The team mobbed through with a second set, singing the fan-top pick, “C.R.E.A.M.” Later on, Method Man and RZA participated in the 3 Ridiculous Questions portion.

There’s more in store for the commemoration. Back in May, XXL talked with Loud Records originator, Steve Rifkind. He uncovered that a redo of 36 Chambers is underway, with a twist. The revamp will feature nine current artists who will play a character from the first LP. “With Wu-Tang, we’re gonna do a few things,” he explained. “We’re gonna remake the album with nine MCs from today and each new MC will play a character in the original 36 Chambers. There’s gonna be a major tour cause it’s also Wu’s 25[th anniversary].”

The Wu will likewise be re-issuing “C.R.E.A.M.” on a unique logo-molded vinyl on Dec. 14, by means of Certified Classics. More merchandise will be available too. The group recently performed at the A3C Festival and were featured on Logic’s, YSIV collection.

Melania Trump’s camp is big mad about #T.I.’s recent video where there’s a Melania-look-alike who strips for the rapper.

Her rep is urging people to #BoycottTI and released the following statement: “Like it or not, she is the First Lady and this is the White House. It’s disrespectful and disgusting to portray her this way simply because of politics.” She continued, “These kinds of vulgar attacks only further the divisiveness and bias in our country – it needs to stop.”

The video, which was posted to Twitter by T.I. on Saturday, depicts the rapper sitting at the Resolute Desk while a Melania Trump look-alike wearing an “I really don’t care, do U?” jacket begins to strip.

“Dear 45, I ain’t Kanye,” T.I. tweeted, referring to West’s recent visit to the White House, which he previously slammed as “the most repulsive, disgraceful, embarrassing act of desperation.”

Now I’ve been extremely patient and made it a point to not jump to any premature conclusions about Ye’& his antics… Partially due to the lessons learned from the outcome of other similar situations dealing wit my brother Wayne (which I admittedly mishandled a bit in hindsight) But now this shit is next level,futuristic Sambo,Hopping Bob, Stephen off Django ass shit Ye!!!! From what I can gather… This is the most repulsive,disgraceful, Embarrassing act of desperation & auctioning off of one’s soul to gain power I’ve ever seen. Now I recall you asking me to come with you to have this meeting and I declined (naturally)… but bro… if ain’time I would’ve been in there wit you and you behaved that spinelessly in my presence,I feel that I’d be compelled to slap de’Fuq outta you bro For the People!!! You ass kissing and boot licking on a whole new level &I refuse to associate myself with something so vile,weak,& inconsiderate to the effect this has on the greater good of ALL OUR PEOPLE!!!! I’m a true believer in “It ain’t what you do,it’s how you do it.” And this shit is regurgitating🤮! At one time it was a pleasure to work alongside you… now, I’m ashamed to have ever been associated with you. To all the people who follow Ye musically,socially, or even personally….who are confused, heartbroken, infuriated…. Let me make this clear… THIS SHIT AINT COOL!!! THIS IS A MOVE YE MADE FOR YE!!! THIS IS A PLAY TO PUT HIM IN A POSITION HE’D LIKE TO SEE HIMSELF IN…WE ARE NOT ON HIS MIND AS HE MAKES THESE COMMENTS AND DECISIONS. Don’t follow this puppet. Because as long as I’ve lived I’ve learned that it benefits a man nothing at all to gain the world,if to do so he must lose his soul. We just saw Mr.West’s Soul on auction. If you listen closely you can hear the tears of our ancestors hit the floor. All I can say is… I’ve reached my limits. This is my stop,I’m officially DONE!!!! 🖕🏽Trump & His Lil Cookie Boy. #USorELSE✊🏽
