The opening night of Drake and Migos during the Aubrey and the Three Amigos tour brought LeBron James and Travis Scott to the stage at Staples Center. The following night brought some more heavyweights in Lil Baby and Cardi B.

Lil Baby joined Drake’s set to perform their hit track “Yes Indeed,” while Cardi joined her husband Offset alongside Quavo and Takeoff for “Motorsport.”

This isn’t the first time that Cardi B has popped up on this tour. She and Drake have had to come across each other backstage, right? Let’s hope so, for future collaboration’s sake.

The Aubrey and Three Amigos tour will be in Los Angeles for a little while longer. After finishing their run at Staples Center the show will move to the Forum in Inglewood. If you haven’t seen the show yet, a new date has just been announced for St. Louis and it will also set up for a few nights in Atlanta in November.

Check out the guest appearances from last night below.

Conor McGregor bought his swag to Dallas and the Dallas Cowboys fed off it. Jerry Jones then invited McGregor up to his VIP suite, where the two watched the game and talked business. Cowboys executives and Jones spoke in depth with McGregor about expanding his business while they studied the new whiskey.

Sources tell TMZ that this was the first time the UFC champion visited the stadium, and he was thoroughly impressed with the energy and the fans. The Cowboys destroyed the Jaguars 40-7, so McGregor was treated to a hometown experience that approached complete madness.

McGregor also showed off his arm a bit, and let’s just say it might be best that he to stick to fighting.

When the game began, it was clear that McGregor’s influence was felt on the Cowboys’ sideline. After Dak Prescott scampered into the end zone for the first touchdown of the day, he celebrated with McGregor’s “Billionaire Strut,” holding his shoulders high and swinging his arms with abandon.

With the great turnout for McGregor, don’t be surprised if the notorious one makes a return appearance down the line.

Donald Trump was not the only president that Kanye West had a meeting with. Ye recently took a trip to East Africa and met with Uganda’s President Yoweri Museveni. Billboard reports the meeting was to discuss promoting tourism and the arts of the nation.

Kanye’s getaway to Africa brought his wife Kim Kardashian West with him where aside from meeting with President Museveni, he has been working on music in a tent. Presumably the forthcoming Yandhi.

Kanye’s meeting to place in the state house and he provided the 74-year-old with a pair of White Yeezy Boost 350 sneakers. Thankfully for this meeting, he left behind his red MAGA hat, opting for a purple dad hat instead.

Saturday Night Live writers and cast members had time this week. Not only did they get Kanye West out of here for his insane rant in front of President Trump, but they also double downed and gave a funny account of what Bill Cosby is going through in prison.

Kenan Thompson took on the role of Bill Cosby who is having an in prison identity crisis and is not able to separate his own persona from the famed The Cosby Show father Cliff Huxtable. In the skit, Cosby receives a new cellmate who will take over the top bank.

In the clip, Cosby is lecturing his new mate, while seemingly enjoying his time in prison and hiding a hoagie that he is calling Denise.

Check out the full scene below and let us know what you think.

50 Cent will not let his son down.

Tekashi 6ix9ine’s relationship with 50 Cent is something that the internet did not know it needed until it happened. From troll to troll, 50 claims the “FEFE” rapper to be his son. After 6ix9ine posted a video of himself racing in a hotel hallway, he was dubbed “the fastest kid in the world.” This has yet to be proven, but we’re going to give him the benefit of the doubt.

In a new Instagram skit, 50 plays the role of a concerned father. The Power producer checks in with his son to assure everything is copacetic while emphasizing the importance of school. When he is asked about gym class, 6ix9ine says that he’s not doing well, due to his complications with breathing.

“I’m the fastest kid in the world, but the asthma kicking in,” said the “Gummo” rapper. Tekashi is surprised once he holds the iced out asthma pump. The “STOOPID” rapper tests out the pump and it is proven to be real. 50’s role as a concerned father extends way beyond the Instagram skit; this is real life parenthood.

At this point, anything Kanye West throws up, blows up. And not the way it did back in the days. Just when we figured things couldn’t get any more bizarre, the White House visit occurred. While a few people are still legitimately scratching their heads, and thinking about how we got to this point, the great people at Saturday Night Live are putting forth a more affable way to deal with the frenzy. The show’s introduction on Oct. 13 included a happy parody of the wacky Oval Office visit.

The spoof features SNL cast member, Chris Redd, assuming the job of Ye, while Keenan Thompson and Alec Baldwin are Jim Brown and President Trump, respectively. The fake Ye offers absurd thoughts like the real White House visit. Even the voice in Trump’s head agrees that Yeezy is out of whack, and Brown hilariously contemplates there.

Coincidentally, it was Kanye West’s appearance on Saturday Night Live recently that reignited his open Trump endorsement. The Make America Great Again hat-loving rapper professed his undying love for POTUS and ranted about being “bullied” for wearing the controversial hat. “They bully me. They bullied me backstage. They told me don’t go out there with that hat on. They bullied me,” he snapped. “And they say I’m in the sunken place. You wanna see the sunken place? OK, Ima listen to y’all now. I almost put my Super Man cape on, cause this means you can’t tell me what to do. Follow your heart and stop following your mind.”

SNL cast part, Pete Davidson, has since called ‘Ye an ass for the manner in which he acted. Swizz Beatz has a new songs that gives us insight on where he stands in the situation.

Meanwhile, Kanye is in Uganda finishing up his Yandhi collection in a great outside studio and fuming about mind control.

The five nominees for Australia’s industry voted annual Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) awards have been announced for “Best Urban Release.” Familiar hip-hop faces in Hilltop Hoods, Esoterik of Bliss N Eso and 360 all received nominations, as did R&B/Soul singer Mojo Juju. Somewhat surprisingly, independent Sydney rapper Kerser was not overlooked this year and finally received a much-deserved nomination after many years of being unfairly ignored.

Australia’s undisputable independent king of hip-hop in Campbelltown-bred rapper Kerser has finally been recognized by the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) and nominated for Best Urban Release for his seventh solo studio album “Engraved In The Game” that dropped last November. Despite his previous six albums all charting, selling well and providing a self-made platform to tour the country independently all made off his own back, an ARIA nomination had alluded him until now somehow. Kerser has proven to be one of the most influential music artists of any genre in Australia over the last decade, coming from local rap battles to selling out his own major tours like no one before him has and inspiring a new generation to rap.

With a change in requirements and name of what can be nominated this year, we see the ARIA award for this category changing from “Best Urban Album” as it has been since 2010 to “Best Urban Release” as it previously was from 2004 – 2009. This change in rules allows two releases to be in the running for consideration this year that would not have otherwise been possible. Those include the 8/9-track “My Astral Plane” E.P. by Esoterik (of Bliss N Eso) and Hilltop Hoods’ excellent single release featuring Adrian Eagle “Clark Griswold”.

The five nominees for this year’s Best Urban Release award are;

– 360’s “Vintage Modern” album on Forthwrite / EMI Australia (Album)

A comeback album of sorts, 360’s 17-track album featuring Pez, Seth Sentry, I.E., Travy P and Hein Cooper was released late last October. It is his fourth solo studio album since his debut album “What You See Is What You Get” was released in March 2008 on Soulmate Records. It was not until late-2010 that his career really started to significantly develop commercially, with the release of the single “Just Got Started” featuring Pez going Gold as well as charting at #59. A number of Platinum-selling singles followed, as well as two ARIA-nominated albums in “Falling & Flying” (2012) and “Utopia” (2014). 360 was relatively quiet on the music front since late-2014 until he came back with a bang in mid-2017. A solid and widely well-received album, 360 is a strong contender to potentially take out the ARIA award this year along with Kerser.

– Hilltop Hoods ”Clark Griswold” feat. Adrian Eagle (Single)

A single-track release from the kings of hip-hop from Australasia in the Hilltop Hoods was enough to earn them a nomination this year. This is their sixth nomination (having won with each of the previous five ARIA nominations in this category) and their first non-album nomination since taking out Best Urban Release in 2006 for their “The Hard Road” Album. They followed it up with wins with “The Hard Road: Restrung” (2007), “State of the Art” (2009), “Drinking from the Sun” (2012) and “Walking Under Stars” (2014) with all of the original releases going #1 and 2x Platinum, with the exception of The Hard Road which has earned Platinum itself so far.

Despite being an excellent song with a notable feature chorus from the talented Adrian Eagle, it does seem hard to objectively compare singles to albums in this newly reconstructed ARIA category.

– Esoterik “My Astral Plane” (E.P.).

The eight-track plus opening interlude EP on Flight Deck / Mushroom Group is Esoterik’s of multiple award-winning, 2x Diamond selling group “Bliss N Eso” debut solo release. It also features James Crooks, ASTA, Spazzy D, imbi the girl and Ev Jones. Released back in May, the EP spawned the two single “Bless Up” and “Be Like You” featuring ASTA, with the latter attracting an official KLP Remix.

– Mojo Juju “Native Tongue” on ABC Music / Universal (Album).

The excellent 16-track album released in late August is her first release since 2015’s 12-track “Seeing Red/Feeling Blue” album. “Native Tongue” debuted at #76 on the ARIA Chart upon release in its first week . The project features the talents of Lay the Mystic, Joshua Tavares and the excellent Pasefika Victoria Choir on the lead single “Native Tongue”.

The lack of a stand-alone category in the ARIA awards for “Best Soul/R&B Album” means that Mojo Juju is up against four hip-hop artists for Best Urban Release this year. In years to come it is likely that the Best Urban Release category will finally be split into two separate categories in Best Hip Hop Release and Best Soul/R&B Release. The lack of a category for Best Funk Release, Best Folk Release, Best World Release further makes it difficult for artists in these genres to also break through and win an ARIA award.

– Kerser “Engraved In The Game” on the independent ABK Records (Album).

Kerser’s 15-track “Engraved In The Game” album is his seventh solo studio album self-released in seven years and features his ABK Records label mates RATES and Jay UF, long-time collaborator Fortay (of At Large Productions) as well as talented singer Alicia Renee. The album was produced by Allrounda.

The past year has shown Kerser remains consistently strong and also spawned arguably the biggest American – Australian hip-hop single collaboration ever with “Total Concentration” featuring Future, Young Buck of G-Unit and Kerser all dropping verses over a Ghosts In The Room beat. Officially Australia’s most viewed rapper on YouTube at nearly 200 million, next year promises to be even bigger than this year with his eighth album set to drop in February, a national tour set for March/April and further potential for Kerser to develop in international markets in New Zealand, Europe, America and the UK all on the horizon. Kerser and 360 with strong album releases appear to be the two clear standout favorites to battle for this year’s award and it appears we may see a new 10th ARIA award winner for this category.

Only once has a single song won the ARIA award for Best Urban Release, in Melbourne R&B singer Daniel Merriweather’s “She’s Got Me” second non-album single off his debut Promotional EP “Merriweather” back in 2005. An EP has never been nominated previously and a single has not been nominated since Bliss N Eso’s 2006 “Up Jump The Boogie” produced by LA’s DJ Hoppa that was the lead single to their second studio album “Day Of The Dog” on Illusive Sounds. Despite dozens of nominations from New South Wales and Sydney artists over the last 14 years, only Bliss N Eso (2008) has managed to take out the top prize with their third album “Flying Colours” a decade ago.

Last year’s ARIA winners were A.B. Original (Briggs and Trials of Funkoars) with their excellent debut album “Reclaim Australia” on Golden Era Records / Bad Apples Music, fending off tough competition from Tkay Maidza, Remi, Thundamentals, and Illy. The other eight different winners for Best Urban Release since its inception in 2004 include Drapht (x2), Seth Sentry, Hilltop Hoods (5 wins from five nominations), Illy, M-Phazes, Bliss N Eso, Daniel Merriweather, and Koolism. Before there was an exclusive Best Urban Release or Best Urban Album Categories, Melbourne hip-hop legends 1200 Techniques in 2002 won the ARIA award for “Best Independent Release” with the lead single “Karma” from their debut studio album “Choose One”. 1200 Techniques were hugely influential in being the first hip-hop act in Australia to win an ARIA and subsequently broke down many barriers for hip-hop in Australia.

Solange’s new album is on the way. The follow-up to 2016’s, A Seat at the Table, is coming this fall, she reveals to The New York Times in a recent interview. In spite of the fact that a release date hasn’t been set, it will “likely arrive into the world fully formed at some mysterious and unexpected moment,” according to the Times.

Solange recorded the LP in areas including New Orleans, Jamaica, and California’s Topanga Canyon. “There is a lot of jazz at the core,” she tells the Times. “But with electronic and hip-hop drum and bass because I want it to bang and make your trunk rattle.”

This year, Solange was named the Harvard Foundation Artist of the Year. She additionally uncovered that she’s been taking a shot at new music with Steve Lacy. The artist uncovered another performance art piece called Metatronia in April. She previously put on an outdoor performance of her melody “Scales” at Donald Judd’s Chinati Foundation in Marfa, Texas; that venture provoked a difference in context for the new LP, she tells the Times: “I realize how much wider, figuratively and literally, my work could be if I took myself away as subject.”

Show Nivea the money.

The Carter V had a number of notable features including Travis Scott, Kendrick Lamar, and Nicki Minaj. One of the most surprising features was from Wayne’s ex, Nivea, on “Dope New Gospel.” The track was allegedly expected to feature Drake, but of course, that did not happen. According to Tunechi, his verse was not able to clear before the release of the album. Nivea stopped by the Breakfast Club recently to speak on her contributions to Carter V.

According to Nivea, the song was written a year prior to the album’s announcement for release.

“We did that song a year ago,” said Nivea. “I wrote the hook and sent it back and he said ‘I love it!'”

After sending the song back to Weezy, Nivea claims she did not hear any word about it, until a month before the Carter V release. When Wayne called to inform Nivea that she had made the album, she was ecstatic. Although she has yet to be paid for the feature, she says there is no malice between herself and Wayne.

Nivea and Wayne were engaged twice, but called off the engagement both times. The “Don’t Mess with My Man” artist gave birth to their son, Neal Carter in 2009. Nivea says Weezy has never missed child support and has always taken care of her and their son. Hopefully, Wayne is not following in the footsteps of Birdman’s history of not paying people.  As a result, she knows that she will receive compensation for her feature very soon.

Currently, Lil Wayne holds 19 of the 50 tracks spots on the Billboard’s Streaming Song chart. In addition, 22 songs debut on the Billboard Hot 100 chart upon its release.

Orlando Brown is at long last getting the assistance he needs thanks to good friends who never gave up on him and organized an intervention to get him into rehab.

Orlando’s friend, Danny Boy, the owner of a Vegas restaurant that the That’s So Raven star broke into a month ago , reached Wendy Wheaton and Tommy Red, Hollywood producers with contacts in the rehab world.

The initial plan was to get the former Disney star some help in August, however, those plans were canceled after he was arrested early September for breaking into Danny’s establishment. When Orlando was released, he went MIA for a few weeks, as per TMZ.

Fast forward to last Sunday cops were called to a San Fernando Valley hotel after he went ballistic. He was so terrible off, his friends waited a few days for the intervention.

Orlando Brown’s currently getting help for mental health and substance abuse issues.

Orlando’s had his fair share of trouble, including his infamous bounty hunters bust in April where he was captured in his underwear.

Reports began circulating this weekend that suggested Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson broke up.

The couple was last seen on good terms on Saturday, during a taping of Saturday Night Live. Eyewitnesses say that they were all boo’d up, kissing and holding each other backstage. So things must’ve took a turn for the worst that same night or the very next day.

However, TMZ reports that following Mac Miller’s death, the singer was an emotional wreck and realized a couple things. For instance, she’s not ready to fully invest herself into Pete and she rushed into an engagement with him way too soon.

Ariana Grande or Pete Davidson have yet to officially announce the split.

Earlier this month, Brooklyn rapper Fabolous was reportedly indicted by a grand jury in New Jersey on four felony charges of domestic assault.

The indictment came after it was uncovered he allegedly assaulted the former Love & Hip Hop star in an incident caught on video back in March 28th, showing Fab confronting Emily’s father, threatening to kill him.

Fab, whose real name is John Jackson and Emily, whose full name is Emily Bustamante, have worked out their differences and remain together since the incident earlier this year.

According to new reports, Fab has also patched up his relationship with Emily’s father, so much so that he is willing to testify on Fab’s behalf if the case goes to trial.

Fab has been charged with one count of domestic violence with significant bodily injury, two counts of threatening to kill, and one count of possession of a weapon.

According to reports, each charge may allow Fab up to five years in prison and are considered third-degree crimes in the state of NJ.

A New York woman is facing backlash this week after she called the police on a black child and falsely accused him of groping her.

Surveillance footage inside a Brooklyn deli showed a 9-year-old boy walking past a woman, Teresa Klein, with his mother earlier this week.

The boy can be seen wearing a backpack and carrying a large plastic bag.

Klein quickly turns around and can be seen shouting across the deli and later arguing with the boy’s mother. The conversation quickly turned sour, ending in Klein calling the police outside of the store, according to reports.

“I was just sexually assaulted by a child,” Klein can be heard saying in a video that Jason LittleJohn, a New York resident, posted on Facebook. The video had garnered 4.7 million views as of Friday evening.

The video also shows the 9-year-old boy and another child crying as Klein makes a call to the police. Bystanders can be seen confronting Klein about the incident.

Klein returned to the store on Friday and watched the bodega’s security camera footage from the incident. She reportedly issued an apology to the young boy while speaking in front of a television reporter’s camera after seeing that he did not grab her.
