Bucks fans are definitely feeling a bit down and out today following the results of last night’s Eastern Conference Finals matchup against the victorious Drake Raptors — err, we mean Toronto Raptors! — but Jordan Brand has a treat in store that’s sure to give Milwaukee a much-needed boost in morale.



First revealed back in March in the Jordan Brand Summer 2019 Preview, the Air Jordan 7 “Ray Allen” arrives right on schedule with a colorway that pays tribute to the basketball icon’s NBA debut as a Milwaukee Bucks fifth overall selection back in 1996. The shoe acts as a 23rd anniversary commemorative release, which holds even more sentiment as Allen was officially inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame last year. The colorway is a play on the Bucks’ retro logo, featuring black, dark gray, purple and hunter green all infused together on the predominately dark-hued silhouette. So, while the Bucks are currently doing their walk of shame, at least you can trail alongside in some pretty fly kicks come next weekend.

The Air Jordan 7 “Ray Allen” drops this coming Saturday (June 1) at 10 AM ET at select retailers, including Finish Line, as well as online via Nike SNKRS. More pics below:

Shannade Clermont of the infamous Clermont twins speaks on the last night with her dead sugar daddy and claims he ‘was not an innocent person’.

One half of the.popular Instagram model duo The Clermont Twins finally speaks on the fatal night with her ‘sugar daddy’. Shannade Clermont, 25, was sentenced to a year in prison after pleading guilty to wire fraud for stealing debit-card information from James Alesi.

Alesi who was a 42-year-old real-estate broker, overdosed and died following a $400 “prostitution date” with the twin model at his Manhattan apartment. She talks about his reputation, her beauty regimen plans for jail and breaks downing tears at the thought of being away from her twin.

Check out excerpts from her interview with The Post below.

“He wasn’t asleep when I left — he was just drunk, I have never been around people who have been on heavy drugs, so I didn’t really know.

“It was like, ‘Oh, he was a drunk mess.’ I was annoyed . . . [I thought] he was playing games. So I just left.”

She admitted she took his card and, over the next few months, went on a $20,000 shopping spree, using it to pay her rent, purchase flights and splurge on Valentino shoes, a Philipp Plein jacket and Beats headphones, among other luxury items.

The day after their date, Alesi was found dead in his East 53rd Street apartment from an overdose of cocaine mixed with fentanyl.

“From the outside looking in, it looks like I knew he was dead and was like ‘haha’ . . . and that’s really sick,” said Shannade.

“The thing was, he was known as a sugar daddy — very known,” Shannade said. “He’s not, like, an innocent person.”

The sisters told The Post that the judge considered their active Instagramming while the trial was ongoing proof of Shannade’s disreputability.

“I don’t know what they expect us to post — like, us crying or looking sad?” said Shannade. “We don’t post our daily struggles or how I feel every day.”

“I just feel like the judge had her mind made up,” Shannon added. “She kept talking about our social following. She said, ‘We need to use you as an example to your followers . . . ’

“She didn’t feel like we have suffered, I mean, I didn’t love him; I liked him,” Shannade said. “[He] was just someone who took care of me.”

At the sentencing, Alesi’s sister read a statement to the court alleging the incident “was all calculated in advance, done out of greed and with malicious intent.”

“My brother died, and [Shannade] went shopping,” the sibling said.

Shannade claims Alesi’s family members “don’t really know his lifestyle. I mean, he’s been in and out of rehab for years. Like, you knew he had a drug problem, why am I the one to blame for that?”

The sisters were shocked when the sentence was delivered. They had thought Shannade’s presentence interview, detailing her suicidal ideation and how the twins had started The Clermont Foundation to raise awareness for mental health, would help her evade jail time.

“We actually felt blindsided, because [the lawyer] told me [Shannade] was not going to serve any time,” said Shannon.

Instead, the judge said, “When faced with a real test of character, Ms. Clermont chose to leave [the victim’s] apartment with his debit-card information without calling 911. No foundation, established after her arrest, can account for that lack of character.”

With Shannade due to report for prison on June 4, the twins are scared about being apart. Asked about the impending separation, they both broke down in tears.

“I have to be strong for her, because I usually cry when I am alone or when she’s not around,” said Shannon.

“I’m not posting by myself,” Shannon said. “Now if it’s just one of us, we don’t post: That’s our brand.”

Meanwhile, Shannade — who will be in a low-security prison in Los Angeles, where the siblings now live — is already thinking about her beauty regime behind bars.

“My wig has to come off, but thank God I have hair,” she said, adding that she might bleach her locks blond so as to create an ombré effect as her dark roots grow out. She’s also been researching how women in jail take care of their tresses.

“They use masks like oatmeal and avocado,” Shannade said. “I could try foods and stuff.”

‘Many people have been incarcerated and they come out stronger. Look at Martha Stewart.’

“I think I want to actually learn some law, because I feel like I was misinformed about this whole process,” Shannade explained, taking a page from pal Kim Kardashian who has said she is studying law.

Kardashian hired the twins to help promote her new sunglasses collaboration with Carolina Lemke, posting photos from the campaign after the sentencing. Shannade hopes Kardashian will visit her in prison.

“Kanye West and Kim — that would be pretty cool,” she said.

“We really can’t speak on it, but we are still working with Kim Kardashian,” said Shannon. “She is giving her support.”

“In five to 10 years, we want to be a huge fashion house,” said Shannade. “We want to be the next Mary-Kate and Ashley [Olsen, actors-turned-designers].”

“I feel like this may have happened for a reason,” Shannade said of her arrest and prison sentence. “God already has his plan, and I’m just going to the path and living it. Look at TI and Gucci Mane. Many people have been incarcerated and they come out stronger. Look at Martha Stewart.”

As for now, “I have been going to church and just praying a lot,” said Shannade. “It hurts because I hurt the people around me.”

“The Real” co-host Jeannie Mai recently revealed that she was sexually abused by a male cousin when she was just 9-years-old and her mother refused to believe her.

In a new episode of her YouTube series “Hello Hunnay,” Mai details her journey of sexual abuse be her 16-year-old cousin which led to her fleeining home and separating ties with her mother Olivia for eight years.

“I just remember one day this person sitting very close to me, we were playing video games, and he started to touch my thigh.” Jeannie also admits the abuse lasted for years. He would take off her clothes, expose himself to her and force her to touch him.

Like many households, sexual abuse is swept under the rug. When Jeannie approached her mother Olivia Mai about the abuse her mother who is Vietnamese said she was confused and didn’t see anything bad about him.

“I began to get angry because now I’m telling my mom that he’s taking off my clothes, and you said, ‘I don’t believe you,’” Mai explains. “In that moment, I was about 15. I remember distinctly those words, ‘I don’t believe you. He wouldn’t do that. That’s your cousin. This is in your head.’ I felt by myself. I even got to a point where I started to ask myself, ‘Did I imagine these things?’”

Mai decided to leave home and didn’t speak to her mother for almost a decade. After missing years together, they reconciled and her mom finally believed her story.

During the shocking video, Jeannie asks her mom, “Did you love him more than you loved your daughter who was trying to tell you something?”

She answers,”I loved him more than I love you because at that time I think he has no parents, you have mother and father…but him he had nobody.”

Jeannie cries during the conversation with her mom who was visibly embarrassed with her own actions calling herself stupid.

“I want to come over to his house and punch him and I want to put him in jail,” Olivia said, adding, “I’m really sorry. I don’t know what happened. I don’t know why I loved that boy.”

Jeannie’s mom admits to not being able to sleep and going to confront the abuser who wanted to purchase Jeannie a gift to apologize.

“I wish you told me that you went to his house. You never told me,” Mai told her mom through tears. “That right there is all I needed to know. That you believed me and you listened and that you would go and try and do something about it. I just needed your support. I feel like you just set something free inside of me because you believed me.”

 

Anyone affected by sexual assault or abuse, whether it happened to you or someone you care about, can find support from online.rainn.org. You can also call the National Sexual Assault Hotline at 800.656.HOPE (4673) to speak to someone who is trained to help.

Dame Dash’s custody battle with his ex-wife Rachel Roy just keeps getting uglier.

In April, the mogul filed for more custodial time with his 11-year-old daughter with Roy, Tallulah. Dash explained that he has a lighter work schedule so he’s able to spend more time with his daughter, plus Roy’s drinking could put their child’s life at risk.

Per The Blast:

In his filing, Dash brings up an alleged incident that went down at a Christmas party both attended last year. He claims Roy became “very intoxicated to the point she could not drive herself or our daughter” home.

Dash says his current wife drove Roy and their kid home. He says he is concerned that if he had not been at the party, Roy would have driven away with Tallulah while intoxicated. He even attached text messages which appear to show Roy apologize for the night in question.

Roy responded to Dash with a series of allegations including smoking weed around the children.

The 45-year-old fashion designer says the custody deal should stay how it is as her ex-husband has demonstrated abusive and negligent behavior around their children.

Roy claims Dash’s history of domestic violence traumatized their children and dragged him for shaming Tallulah for not purchasing him a birthday gift. Roy wants Dash to attend mandatory anger management classes and therapy sessions.

Dame Dash has filed a responses saying he has done “everything in my power to rehabilitate from the past.”

Offset got flewed out to Russia by popular demand.

The Migos rapper went all the way to Moscow to perform at a Bar Mitzvah. Videos below from the party shows the Father of 4 rapper performing a slew of his hits like, “Wild Wild West,” “Slippery” and more.

The footage below shows Set vibing with the older and younger crowd, and performing one song with the birthday boy. The private event was definitely one for the books.

Offset isn’t the first and certainly won’t be the last rapper to perform at a Bar Mitzvah. Drake, Cardi B, Nicki Minaj, Fat Joe, Fetty Wap, Rich The Kid, and 21 Savage have all secured the bag for performing at the religious event.

Back in April SZA revealed that she was racially profiled in a Calabasas Sephora while she was raking up on Fenty Beauty products.

SZA detailed the alleged incident on her Twitter. “Lmao Sandy Sephora location 614 Calabasas called security to make sure I wasn’t stealing. We had a long talk. U have a blessed day Sandy,” she wrote. “Can a b*tch cop her fenty in peace er whut[?]”

Sephora released a statement to Allure saying, “We have been informed of an incident at our Calabasas store and in addition to reaching out to SZA directly, we are gathering more information about the incident in order to take the proper next steps. We take complaints like this very seriously, profiling on the basis of race is not tolerated at Sephora. Our purpose has always been rooted in our people and ensuring that Sephora is an inclusive and welcoming space for all our clients.”

It seems like SZA and the beauty store was able to work things out but Rihanna made sure things were all good by sending the TDE singer a Fenty Beauty gift card.

“Go buy yo Fenty Beauty in peace sis!” Riri wrote in a card.

“Thanks Queen,” the Ctrl singer wrote on the caption of the picture of the gift card.

For the longest time some people believed that 50 Cent was a rat, and linked Jimmy Henchman to the death of his friend, Lodi Mack.

The former music mogul, formally known as James Rosemond, was charged and convicted for murder as prosecutors believe he hired guys to kill Lodi who allegedly beat up his 14-year-old son.

Around the time of the 2009 case there was a “report of investigation” circulating by the U.S. Dept. of Justice’s DEA Office that cites 50 as an informant. Turns out the document is completely fake and was produced by someone who wanted to make the G-Unit head honcho look bad.

Law enforcement with direct knowledge to the case told TMZ that 50 Cent was never recorded speaking to any officers on the case during the time.

This news is good for Fif’s street credibility.

Meek Mill slammed the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas for being “racist” and banning him for no reason.

The Philly rapper documented his encounter with the hotel’s security team in a series of videos and tweets. TMZ reports that he was at the hotel to attend a DJ Mustard concert there but they wouldn’t allow him to step foot on the premises.

“If you come from our culture you should never step foot in the cosmopolitan hotel they just really racist as hell …. something really has to be done in Las Vegas what they doing to black people,” Meek Mill tweeted.

“They telling black rappers they are banned from properties they own without incident … they just told me I was trespassing and I will be arrested I stepped in that hotel once at a [Jay-Z] party without incident!”

“I’m gonna be arrested for what? Being a rapper?” Meek Mill asked after the security guard claimed the decision to ban the rapper was “way bigger than me.” They then threatened to have him arrested for trespassing.

Meek Mill also tweeted, “The cosmopolitan hotel …. and it’s a few other hotels that be doing this to black entertainers because they don’t want too many blacks on they property! Vegas notorious for this too its not just me!!!”

The Cosmopolitan said in a statement to 3 News Las Vegas, “As a matter of company policy, we do not comment on legal matters. Our guests’ safety and security always remains our top priority.”

Meek Mill’s lawyer Joe Tacopina wrote a letter given to TMZ, “We have learned that the Cosmopolitan maintains a list of African American recording artists who should be denied access for no other reason than than their culture and skin color. Such course of conduct constitutes discrimination per se, in violation of state and federal law, and exposes you to significant monetary damages.”

The letter also warned the Cosmopolitan, “We urge you to promptly issue an apology to Mr. Williams and grant him immediate access. In the event you fail to heed this one and only warning, we intend to pursue all legal recourse against you.”

When bullying Baby on the internet goes wrong🤦🏾‍♂️

A post shared by BABY JESUS (@dababy) on

“When bullying Baby on the internet goes wrong,” the “Suge” rapper said. Cam is seen in the video with a bloody face and his pants around his ankles.

There’s no telling how that happened but he went online claiming that he was jumped by DaBaby and his security guard.

After posting the footage of the fight, the “Baby on Baby” rapper posted another video to his Instagram account. It was a clip from his “Suge” music video where the lyrics say “I’ll slap the shit out a n**ga/No talkin’, I don’t like to argue with n**gas (I don’t).”

This who drama stems from Cam saying DaBaby is falsely repping North Carolina and he’s originally from Ohio. The Billion Dollar Baby CEO simply laughed at Cam’s claims and told him to “DO SUMN.” Well he tried to and things just didn’t end too well for him.

Supporters of Leandra Feliz are in shock as it was revealed that Trinitarios member Kevin Alvarez and corroborating witness is out of jail after serving 10-months in jail for assisting in the death of Lesandro “Junior” Feliz under his plea deal.

This week, Alvarez testified during jury selection that he is the person that initially dragged Junior out of the bodega that fateful night. Defense attorney Kyle Waters suggested that Junior would still be alive if Alvarez had not pulled the boy out into the street where his friends had weapons waiting to attack the 15-year-old boy. Alvarez said he knew his friends had weapons but changed his statement to explain he was surprised his friends had weapons with them that night.

Waters was about to play video of the killing when Junior’s mom Leandra became hysterical. She did not return to court following her breakdown in court.

Back inside the court, Assistant District Attorney Morgan Dolan asked Alvarez, “Have you been offered two potential sentences?”

“Yes.”  He revealed that he had pleaded guilty to manslaughter in the first degree, which normally carries a sentence of 8 1/3 to 25 years — and another count of conspiracy in the fourth degree, a non-violent felony.

The prosecutor asked what happens if he doesn’t truthfully testify at this and future trials.

“I get sentenced to 25 years,” Alvarez said.

“What happens if you satisfy the agreement?” the prosecutor continued.

“I get sentenced to time served on conspiracy in the fourth degree,” Alvarez replied.

Kevin Alvarez will get time served for his role in the teen’s chase, beating, and death — if he truthfully testifies in this and potential future trials.

Last year in an interview with the New York Daily News, Alvarez  denied responsibility, claiming he was cared for his life in prison and he ‘can’t sleep at night’.

He said a corrections officer said he would leave the door open so he could be attacked and he’s left unable to sleep at night.

‘I was scared. I don’t get scared. I was in the military, but I was so scared. People think I’m a monster. They want me dead,’ Alvarez said.

The second season of David Letterman’s Netflix series, My Next Guest Needs No Introduction is on the way and Kanye West is one of the many high-profile guests sitting down with the host.

In a preview of the episode below, Ye made some interesting comments in regards to his beef with Drake.

“An artist which I will not mention, because I’m not allowed to mention him or any of his family members…Well, we had a little beef last year,” Kanye reportedly says on the episode before revealing for the non-Hip Hop fans that he is referring to Drake. “He has this line that I love that says, ‘I told my story and made history’—like made his story and made history. That’s what we do, we tell our story and then people relate to that story.”

“I have a friend who told me that my power is my influence,” Kanye continues. “And I said my power is my ability to not be influenced.”

Kanye and Drake’s past issues hit its peak when Yeezy went on a Twitter rant demanding an apology from the Toronto rapper for following his wife on Instagram. In a later rant, the “Flashing Lights” rapper accused the 6 God of threatening his family and dissing him on his Travis Scott collaboration, “Sicko Mode.”

Since then, Kanye West cleared his “Say What’s Real” sample for Drake’s So Far Gone streaming service release. Additionally, Drizzy thanked Ye for his influence on the 10-year-old body of work.

Things can be moving in a better direction for the pair, but only time will tell.

T.I. and Charlamagne Tha God attended a Congressional Black Caucus press conference to advocate for investments in the Black community.

The main talking points of the conference were closing the wage gaps within the Black community while elevating economical development.

The Hip Hop heavy weights had lawmakers Re. Antonio Delgado (D-NY) and Steven Horsford (D-NV) in their corner as they talked about leeway in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, and Nipsey Hussle’s honorable contributions to the initiative and more.

“We spoke about opportunity zones. You’re talking about not just an opportunity for folks who have been marginalized or exploited or left behind, you’re also talking about opportunity for Hip Hop,” Delgado, notably a former rapper, said according to The Hill. “Because what Hip Hop has done over its lifetime, has put brothers and sisters who’ve come from tough circumstances in a position to elevate their individual lives and at times their communities.”

The Breakfast Club host spoke about Nipsey’s admirable leadership skills on The Breakfast Club Thursday morning.

“Nipsey was the epitome of a leader. We were on Capitol Hill yesterday advocating for it with members of the CBC and lawmakers and of course, Nipsey would have been and salute to David [Gross] for seeing his vision through.”

T.I. discussed the late rapper’s hands-on approach to uplifting his fellow community members. “Everybody knows that Nipsey was pretty much the founder of the idea to bring everyone together who, you know, may individually be able to do great things and make a significant impact on their own in their communities,” Tip explained. “But for us to come together, we can impact so, so many more communities and spread our efforts so much wider.”

Many members of the Hip Hop community decided to boycott Gucci following the release of their controversial sweater that resembled black face. But not everyone is down with the cause.

Jim Jones took to Instagram to announce that he is not going to stop wearing the luxury brand. “Don’t ask me about Gucci goofy when dap start sellin 2 DD’s instead of 2 GG’s I will stop rockin it but until then eat ur heart out any rappers have a issues wit tht I’m never hard to find AMEN
Ps lookin like I brang th Scurl back lol”

Not sure what was the reason behind his post because it came seemingly out of nowhere. But he made his stance clear. It’s also unclear which rappers he’s referring to in his post, but he made it clear he’s “never hard to find.”

His comment section was just as divided as the entire controversy. “Where T.I at,” one user commented on Jim Jones’ post. Tip was one of the leads of the Internet Gucci boycott and has previously called out folks he saw still rocking the Italian brand.

“People just stupid period.Wasting time on what someone buys and wears.The people commenting can’t even afford to buy Gucci.Jimmy can wear whatever the fuck he wants,and don’t have to follow what T.I. is saying.DAMN DUMMIES!!!” another one commented.

What’s your take on the whole Gucci boycott?

Three 6 Mafia hit the ground running with the release of their debut LP, Mystic Stylez in 1995.

Originally known as “Backyard Posse,” the trio consisted of DJ Paul, Juicy J, and Lord Infamous. The 16-track collection was recorded in their hometown of Memphis, Tennessee. As Juicy J recalled, “We went in the studio and just made records, man. Go in there, got high, drank, and just made records. That’s all I remember doing. I can’t remember ‘I came up with… Who did…’ We just made the beats. We all just came in and contributed, and the shit came out hard.”

While recording, the group was influenced by the likes of N.W.A., Geto Boys, Willie Hutch, KRS-One and Isaac Hayes. The standout record, “Live By Yo Rep (B.O.N.E. Dis)” accused Bone Thugs-n-Harmony of jocking their style. “It wasn’t a real beef,” DJ Paul says. “It was more of a misunderstanding because we was rapping about triple six, devil shit, and tongue twisting over slow beats. We had been doing that since 1989 and then all of a sudden when Bone came out—I think it was 1993… We didn’t know the Faces Of Death album because it was their underground stuff. Just like they probably didn’t know our underground stuff.”

The album led the way for a subset of Memphis rap and influenced hardcore Southern rap for decades to come. It was regarded as “one of the essential southern hip-hop albums.”

Although it was considered more of an underground album, Three 6 Mafia’s debut aged gracefully and is cited as precursors for Crunk and Trap music.

The alleged assault case between Remy Ma and Brittney F. Taylor just went to the next step.

TMZ reports four charges have been filed against the veteran rapper for allegedly punching her in the eye at Pretty Lou’s charity concert.

Prosecutors are charging Remy with two counts of third-degree assault, one count of second-degree aggravated harassment, and a final count of second-degree harassment.

She was offered a guilty plea deal which will result in the remaining charges getting dropped. She respectfully declined with hopes to get the entire case dropped. The State of the Culture co-host is confident that there’s video evidence that will prove her innocence.

Her attorney, Dawn Florio, claims home surveillance footage refutes claims of her being near Taylor around the time in question. The time of the incident was initially reported as 9:30 pm but was moved back an hour, and prosecutors have footage of the “All The Way Up” entering Irving Plaza at that time.

Remy left court hand-in-hand with her husband, Papoose, avoiding all questions from reporters.

While Maison Margiela is no stranger to cooking up sneaker designs that are rather, well, “interesting” to say the least — remember those Dirty Treatment Sneakers or the Deconstructed Fusion from last summer? — the latest kicks to come from the luxury fashion house are literally dripping in all sorts of eclectic style. Question is, would you cop?



Following past releases that showcased a DIY-style construction, the new Fusion Low iteration seen here is covered in glue that has a dried drip effect around the entire silhouette. Distressed vibes come into play once again as well, primarily on the scratched-up midsole and scuffed vamp. There’s also a rope detailing that intertwines into the eyelets, a taped heel counter that also looks scuffed and a mesh collar that manages to be the only thing on this shoe that looks fresh and new. Sneakers can always be considered a work of art, but whether these are considered an abstract masterpiece or just a complete mess overall will be left up to you guys to decide.

The glued-out Maison Margiela Fusion Low “White/Yellow/Turquoise” is available right now for a whopping $1,431 USD on MATCHESFASHION. Let us know if you’d rock these or not after check out a few more pics below:

Tina Turner released an autobiography last October that detailed rape and abuse by the hands of her ex-husband, Ike Turner.

However, Ike’s daughter, Mia Turner, denies the rape allegations. Ike was married to the singer when he impregnated one of his back up dancers and had Mia.

Mia spoke to Daily Mail and said the rape scene in the What’s Love Got to Do with It biopic was “fictionalized.”

“Obviously I wasn’t there that night…but after I saw the movie I called Tina’s sister Aillene and said: ‘What in the world?’ She then called Tina and confirmed to me that it never happened,” Mia told the publication. “A high percentage of Tina’s account has been accurate. When she signed off on the movie it was the way she wanted it, but it was edited heavily afterwards.”

She added: “We find out later it was tweaked. It was made Hollywood, so there’s quite a few scenes, primarily the rape scene. It didn’t happen. In Hollywood, sex sells, whether it’s good, bad or indifferent.”

Continuing on a relentless delivery of drops, most recently in the form of a capsule collection with Lil Yachty, BAPE is now teaming up with Medicom Toy and Japanese photographer/director Mika Ninagawa for a floral-inspired set of apparel, accessories and collectors items.



For those not familiar with the renowned work of Ninagawa — she directed the Japan version of Alicia Key’s “Girl On Fire” music video — her style is based primarily in intensely vibrant, almost surrealistic floral designs. For this partnership, the style is intertwined with A Bathing Ape’s signature 1ST CAMO print, which come together on a set of tees, hoodies, wall clocks and Medicom’s popular BE@RBRICK figurines. The Shark Hoodies are the definite standout, as it combines all three sides of the collab by way of the overall design and with the BE@RBRICK ears incorporated into the tailoring. The co-branding is credited to M / mika ninagawa, which stands as Ninagawa clothing imprint where her designs usually mix into fashion. If you’re a BE@RBRICK collector, sizes available include 1000%, 400% and 100%, and Baby Milo fans will be pleased to know that our forever young friend pops up on a few of the T-Shirts as well.

The BAPE x Medicom Toy x M / mika ninagawa Capsule Collection arrives at A Bathing Ape’s Japan locations, online store, the Medicom Toy Store and its webstore beginning Saturday (May 25), followed by a global release on June 8. See the full set below:
