Funkmaster Flex recently made a heavily-loaded statement towards Cardi B, but of course we all knew latest in our line of Hip-Hop Queens in the game wouldn’t tolerate that level of disrespect.

 

FROM THE DESK OF @IAMCARDIB… 😳💯

A post shared by Level Up Hip Hop 📶⬆ (@leveluphiphop_) on

 

Ultimately, she’s concluded that the veteran DJ hasn’t liked her since she parted ways with old management.

She furthermore dismissed the claim as baseless, citing she was signed to Atlantic Records six months prior to releasing “Bodak Yellow” and her career appeared stagnant. However, when the song dropped and people responded well, Cardi says even Drake invited her to perform it at OVO Fest.

“Was that a label and payola too?” She may have a point.

Bardi then calls attention to collaborating with artist who are more popular than her and some who are less popular than her. Regardless of what a song does on the charts, she remains dedicated to her craft.

“People call me a flop when it don’t do good but when [it] is good, its payola or [its] a f****** excuse. GTFO!” Again, good point made here.

“I’m just out here giving people what they want and making sure I make money! All that other bulls*** I don’t a f*** about.”

On a more positive note, Bardi recently took to Instagram to let fans know she has scored another certified gold single for “I Do,” which features SZA.

 

So, after reading the full response above, what do you guys think: Team Flex or Team Cardi? Sound off over on our Facebook and Twitter!

New York University has announced this week that its School of Medicine will provide free tuition for all present and future students.

Citing the risk of “overwhelming” debt, it says every student will qualify regardless of merit or financial need. NYU said financial worries were driving graduates to more lucrative specialities, pushing doctors away from more general positions.

The scholarship covers annual tuition costs of up to $55,000, however, fees such as books and room and board are not covered.

NYU School of Medicine made the surprise announcement at its annual White Coat Ceremony on Thursday – when new students receive a white lab coat as they begin their studies.

A study produced by the Association of American Medical Colleges estimated that in 2017 75% of medical students graduated in debt. Graduates move towards higher-paying areas of medicine over paediatrics, primary care or gynaecology due to their “staggering student loans”.

NYU is now the only top 10 U.S. medical school to offer free tuition.

Netflix has released the final Iron Fist season 2 trailer, and it features plenty of action, in addition to teases for Danny Rand’s iconic comic book costume and the villainous Steel Serpent.

The clip shows Rand standing in the middle of the street with a cloth mask over the bottom half of his face, wearing a hoodie. Rand holds up his hand, and a truck stops in the middle of the road. The driver guns it, and Rand sidesteps, iron-fisting the truck’s front end and knocking the wheels off. He beats up everyone in the truck, dodging gunfire, and ends the fight by iron-fisting the ground, knocking all his opponents down and setting off nearby car alarms.

While the first season of Iron Fist reportedly enjoyed the highest viewer numbers for the streaming service’s Marvel franchise, the show was slammed by critics and viewers for its ham-handed approach to race and lackluster action scenes — a turnaround from the critical acclaim that its sibling shows Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and Luke Cage all earned.

Iron Fist Season 2 premieres on September 7 on Netflix, and it’ll consist of only 10 episodes, as opposed to the 13 in Season 1. Watch the latest trailer above.

Ariana Grande’s scheduled appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon this past Thursday (August 16) changed gears after the passing of Aretha Franklin that same day.  According to TMZ, Grande was reportedly scheduled to do a comedy skit , but The Roots’ Questlove chimed in and suggested that the 25 year-old singer perform one of Aretha Franklin’s classic hits. Initially, Ariana was skeptical because she was extremely emotional over the loss of the Queen of Soul, but the timing honestly couldn’t have been better.

Through the persuasion of Questlove, Grande opened Fallon’s show with a heartwarming cover of “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman.” As this is one of the most popular songs in Franklin’s catalog, being covered by legends such as Mary J. Blige and Celine Dion, there was definitely pressure for the pint-size pop princess to pull through.

Fighting through a number of emotions, she left her heart on that stage. The audience applauded with a standing ovation, and you can check out the video below to see why:

 

 

Grande was gracious enough to have met the late soul Queen. She shares some of those memories with Fallon and the audience.

“We sang at the White House and she was so sweet and she was so cute,” said Grande. “It was an honor to have met her and we’re going to celebrate her.”

Aretha Franklin inspired a number of artists that followed after her. From her captivating stage presence, to naturally-gifted voice, her profound impact will be everlasting.

Ariana promoted the release for her 5th studio album, Sweetner, available now on all streaming platforms.

R.I.P. Queen…

In New York, handball is considered to be a honored pastime, especially in the Latin quarters of the city. The fast-paced street sport is played all throughout the Big Apple, from official courts dedicated specifically to those that like cutthroat matches all the way to schoolyards where singles and doubles games are more common.

On this date in 1970, the Wu Tang Clan’s Jamel Irief was born in Brooklyn, New York and as fate would have it, morphed into being the most inconspicuous member of the legendary Wu Tang Clan.

Many emcees, DJs and entertainers in general have an almost miraculous story of how they got on, but Masta Killa was ushered into the game on one of the most highly anticipated albums of 1993 and he didn’t even try.

“I never performed until we launched Wu Tang. That was my first time as an MC. I have history since elementary school doing talent shows. Breaking and shit like that. I was that kind of dude. I loved to pop. That was me. Always doing shit around music. As far as with a mic in my hand, Wu-Tang was the first time. There never was next level for me. It was Wu-Tang and that was it. I never tried to get on. Never looked for any of this, because it was never my vision. I’m kinda like hanging out with GZA, and just stumbled across some shit. “Oh word?” And I was like, “Maybe I can do this.” When I was young going to clubs, I was just hanging out. I never went in there like I was trying to be an MC. I never tried to get a record deal, or pass out tapes. It’s just been Wu-Tang and I’m here.”

The East New York bred emcee has dropped four solo projects, including his critically acclaimed debut album No Said Date.

Happy degree day to the God Jamel Irief on his physical nativity date! Peace!

Rapper Kodak Black was released from Broward County jail early Saturday morning.

The 21-year-old from Pompano Beach Florida—born Dieuson Octave, legally changed his name to Bill K. Kapri while in jail. He was arrested earlier this year for a slew of charges, including grand theft of firearm, possession of marijuana, and neglecting a child. He had 7 charges in total, but 5 were later dropped, saving him from serving a possible 12-year sentence. During his time at the county jail Kodak has earned his general equivalency diploma and has a new outlook on life. His attorney Bradford Cohen spoke with Pitchfork about the shortened sentence.

“All I can say is, I work very hard to try and give all of my clients a second chance,” Kapri’s attorney Bradford Cohen told Pitchfork in a statement. “We were lucky that the matter concerning Bill a/k/a Kodak was resolved in a way we felt was extremely fair by the prosecutor handling the matter. He looks forward to getting out and creating new music and spreading his charity work.”

We are excited to see what Kodak has in store for us.

Welcome home!

Mexican marines on Friday said they had discovered an underground drug lab in the mountains outside the capital of Sinaloa state where they destroyed 50 tons of methamphetamine.

Marines found the lab after intelligence reports indicated that tons of drugs were being produced in the area of Alcoyonqui municipality, about 12 miles outside the state capital of Culiacan, the marine ministry said in a statement.

The drugs were hidden underground in two areas along with barrels of the chemicals used to produce meth. The drugs were incinerated on site due to the difficult access to the remote location, the ministry said.

Mexico is a major supplier of methamphetamine to the United States and is the top source of heroin, which is fueling a resurgence in opioid addiction worse than the U.S. seen in the 1960s and 1970s. The country is also the principal highway for cocaine trafficked north.

Sinaloa is the seat of the powerful cartel formerly run by Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, who is facing trial in the United States later this year.

The young man who found Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston’s daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown unresponsive in the bathtub was found dead from an apparent drug overdose.

Max Lomas, the young man who found Bobbi Kristina was himself found on the floor of the bathroom in a friend’s home in Mississippi with a syringe near his body.

Max was rushed to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Max’s death shares eerie similarities with those of Bobbi Kristina and her mother Whitney; both women were found in bathtubs after taking drugs.

Bobbi had morphine, cocaine, alcohol and prescription drugs in her body when she went underwater in a bathtub, causing brain damage that left her in a coma for six months. She passed away July 26, 2015.

Lomas was close friends with Bobbi and was reportedly her ex-boyfriend. He was in Bobbi’s house in the crucial hours leading up to her death.

Bobbi’s mother Whitney died February 10, 2012 after being found in her Beverly Hilton hotel room bathtub.

UK sneaker retailer size? is always up to something dope — usually in the collaborative department as we saw earlier this summer with the Air Max 95 “Safari” — and the latest is a “Acid House”-themed set of footwear alongside the good people over at adidas Originals.



The double feature includes the YUNG-1 and Falcon silhouettes, both utilizing a super vibrant neon yellow hue. The YUNG-1 incorporates the colorway on a bigger scale, covering the entire upper and back half of the midsole. The Falcon keeps the hue limited to the tongue tab, insoles and slightly on the heel portion of the midsole. The yellow has a story to it as well; a specific smiley face design was originally used for German government ads in the ’70s to promote fitness. However, the ’90s came, and with that wild era came popular DJ Danny Rampling, who turned the smiley upside down to represent London’s booming “Acid House” movement at the turn of the decade. If you’re down with the party era, especially for the ragers out there, this is one collab you don’t want to sleep on.

Check for the size? x adidas Originals “Acid House” Pack to arrive exclusively through the size? Previews app and in all the brand’s stores beginning next Friday (August 24). The Yung-1 goes for £100 while the Falcon is retailing for £85. See more pics below:

It is Music Friday at The Source and it is only right we open up with a moment of silence for the icon Aretha Franklin.

In a time when white folk should really watch what they say, many just don’t care. They are saying exactly what they mean… even when it goes against post-racial bs that is espoused in mainstream American culture.

Recently a video of white man getting rough up by the police has been circulated around the internet.

This “victim’s” name is Jeff Epstein, a doctor by trade and Trump supporter. According to an Orlando, FL NBC affiliate, WESH 2 News, he was being “unruly” while trying to pick up his ticket early Thursday morning at the American Airline counter in The Orlando International Airport. Reports say that homie was snapping at the customer service reps so much that they had to call 5-0.  Oh course, he got indignant and started ramming and because he could not control his emotions, the airline refused him entry to the flight.

Reports say that Epstein continued to act unstable. Apparently though he asked police to arrest him, seeming to be cooperative by taking off his backpack and raising his hands in the air, he tensed up and refuse to allow the officers to put the cuffs on him. And that is where the action popped off.

The Orlando police pepper sprayed him and wrestled him down. Epstein not liking this started going ham and saying “You are treating me like a Black person!”

After the incident, he did an interview with the local news station to explain what he meant by his exclamation. Apparently, he was making a point that is often missed by Trump supporters and that he wanted to purposely bring to light to “prove a point” about police brutality in the Black community. You know… he wanted to prove that the Black Lives Matters movement is really on to something.

He told the news station, “If you’re going to do this to a white doctor, who’s 59-years-old, for doing nothing, then why would black people trust you?” and continued “I’m a conservative Republican, I’m a Trump guy. But until the police fix this problem, I don’t blame Black people for being upset when they get arrested.”

What an advocate…

He further said, “I was no danger. I was being loud because I wanted everyone to see. I wanted everything to be out in the open. Big companies have to take care of their customers, and when they call the cops in, they got to deescalate, not escalate.”

When you can’t exactly figure out the best way to swag out your ‘fit for the day, the go-to look is usually a muted-out black steez. It just looks perfect from all angles, and the team over at Nike knew this well enough to release a two-shot Air Max pack that puts the focus on the darkest shade on the spectrum.



The appropriately-titled “Night Ops” pack includes the Air Max 90 and Air 180 silhouettes, both decked out in a completely black upper, save for minor “Volt” accents found in the branding on the side panels, insoles, shoelace aglets, and Air bubble unit. The 180 adds a final touch of neon on the heel, complimenting the shiny heel counter perfectly. Both silhouettes utilize a translucent sole, adding another non-black element to the mix that just looks super clean. Whether or not you’re down with the other ops is another story, but let’s just hope these are the only ones you’re rocking with this season.

Expect the Air Max 90 and Air 180 silhouettes in the Nike “Night Ops” pack to arrive next Thursday (August 23) on Nike SNKRS. Check out both below:
