Things have been going up for DMX ever since his recent release from prison. He has been flexing his acting chops, reuniting with old collaborators/friends, and overall just been looking healthy.

X fans have been eager for his return to the booth and it looks like that’s going to happen sooner than later. All Hip Hop reports that the Yonkers rapper returned back home to Def Jam in a new deal.

His first project may be a Christmas album, DMX-Mas, and could see the light of day this year but there’s no hard confirmation on that.

DMX was released from a West Virginia prison in January of this year after he was imprisoned for tax evasion since 2018. He has been leading a positive path ever since. He has been booked and busy traveling all over the country, it looks like he’s going to be in a new movie, and he even entered Casanova’s #SoBrooklynChallenge.

Are you ready for new music from X?

Forbes released their annual list of top paid Hip Hop acts and it has stirred up some chatter.

Kanye West historically topped the list for the first time in his career with the help of his Yeezy brand. Cardi B also made the list, coming in 13th place and Meek Mill in 15th place.

Cardi B took to Twitter to say that the outlet was “way off.” Meek Mill also chimed in tweeting, “Forbes got our bank accounts f—-d up lol …”

Forbes says, “Our numbers represent pretax income from June 2018 to June 2019 before deducting fees for agents, managers and lawyers; figures are based on data from Nielsen Music, Pollstar, Bandsintown and interviews with experts, handlers and some of the stars themselves.”

Not sure if Cardi or Meek got a chance to get interviewed but even Quality Control’s, Pee, says the numbers are all screwed up.

People began panicking when a Delta aircraft plunged 29,000 feet for seven minutes. Oxygen masks were deployed, people began texting their loved ones, it was a terrifying scene.

The flight was flying from Atlanta to Fort Lauderdale and it was midway through when it rapidly dropped from an altitude 39,000 feet to 10,000 feet.

The airline claims the plunge was caused by “cabin pressurization irregularity en route.”

The flight attendants tried their best to keep everyone calm but of course the natural human reaction is to freak out when you think you’re about to die. “Do not panic! Do not panic!”‘, the attendant said on the speaker according to passenger Harris DeWoskin.

He spoke to WFTS and recounted his near death experience. “Out of nowhere, I felt what felt like a sort of a rapid descent. We started dropping in altitude and then the oxygen masks dropped from the top of the plane. Chaos sort of ensued amongst the passengers

Thankfully they landed in Fort Lauderdale safely.

Cardi B’s name was mentioned in Tekashi 69’s testimony for his federal racketeering case.

During cross-examination, the “GUMMO” rapper said that she was a member of the Nine Trey Bloods. Aljermiah Mack’s attorney asked the disgraced rapper if he modeled the Bronx rapper’s blueprint to success by including gang members in his video. He denied it.

He also testified that Jim Jones and Trippie Redd were members of the Bloods the first day he took the stand.

Bardi caught wind of the squealing and responded with a clip of KeKe Palmer’s now-viral clip of her unable to identify Dick Cheney.

A rep for the Grammy-award winning rapper told TMZ that Tekashi’s claims “is not true,” but Cardi B let it be known she doesn’t dress up in all red for nothing.

In a since-deleted tweet she responded to a Twitter user saying, “You said it yourself …Brim not Trey .I never been 9 trey or associated with them .

Cardi B Responds to Tekashi 69 Saying She's a Member of the Nine Trey Bloods

There’s no telling why the tweet was deleted but it’s been well-documented over the years that Cardi is either Blood or been affiliated with them for a long time.

A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie is doing what he can to help out Bahamas which was destroyed by Hurricane Dorian.

The Bronx rapper announced that he’s donating $50,000 to UNICEF USA to aide in their hurricane relief efforts.

Lil Uzi Vert promised to match every additional dollar raised up to $50,000. With the potential to bring $150,000 to these children and their families, the funds will provide relief for the Bahamian people who survived the catastrophic Category 5 hurricane, have lost their livelihoods and have been left with little to no water and food.

“The Bahamas need our help, man. You got kids and families left with nothing out there,” said A Boogie. We got to show love and support in any way we can to help rebuild that beautiful place. Every little thing helps.”

Dennis Rodman just shared some interesting information about his 1993 romance with Madonna.

The NBA legend appeared on The Breakfast Club and claimed the pop icon offered him $20 million dollars to get her pregnant. “She said, ‘Dennis, you know that I’m ovulating,’” Rodman, 58, recounted the “Material Girl” singer telling him in a phone call. “I said, ‘What is that?’ I was trying to f— with her, you know?”

Rodman says he was gambling in Las Vegas when she summoned him with a jet to hook up with her. So he asked to hold the table and went to handle his business and returned right to the game.

“She asked me that if I got her pregnant, she’d pay me $20 million,” Rodman told the radio trio. “That’s if the child was born.”

He didn’t stop there. Dennis Rodman also speculated that Madonna’s eldest daughter, Lourdes, 22, might have been born as a result of a similar arrangement with her trainer, Carlos Leon.

Madonna has yet to publicly comment on these allegations.

Kanye West is gearing up to release his Jesus Is King album but he has experienced an exponential growth this year thanks to his Yeezy brand.

According to Forbes’ Highest-Paid Hip Hop Acts of 2019 list, Ye sits on top of the list for grossing a whopping $150 million this year. JAY-Z follows-up with $81 million. Drake and Diddy aren’t too far behind with $75 and $70 million respectively. Travis Scott marks the top 5 with $58 million.

This is Kanye’s first time topping the list in his career but it’s no surprise considering the popularity of his sportswear brand. In addition to his brand, him and his business savvy wife, Kim Kardashian, are a power couple.

Eminem and Pitbull both proved to be raking in some dough landing places in the top 20 list.

It’s been a full decade since “that incident” involving Taylor Swift, Beyoncé, Kanye West, a “Best Female Video” trophy and most notably a bottle of Hennessy. However, even with 10 years and a series of other dramatic events in the interim, that moment at the 2009 MTV VMA Awards is still a topic of discussion in 2019. This time however, it’s Tay-Tay who’s bringing up the past in order to tell her side of it all for the latest cover story of Rolling Stone.



While the interview is full of other interesting focal points, including details around the making of her aforementioned chart-topping LP, the Game of Thrones finale and her highly-publicized fallout with Scooter Braun and Scott Borchetta, the meat of this interview is without a doubt her recollection of the whole Kanye ordeal. From the ’09 VMAs to that phone call heard around the world a few years ago, Taylor tells all and reveals a few details that some people may have never heard before.

Read the paraphrased version below of her Rolling Stone quote that details the beef with ‘Ye and his “two-faced” ways:


“Basically, I got really sick of the dynamic between he and I…all I ever wanted my whole career after that thing happened in 2009 was for him to respect me… we’d go to dinner and stuff…It just felt like I was healing some childhood rejection or something from when I was 19. But the 2015 VMAs come around. He’s getting the Vanguard Award. He called me up beforehand — I didn’t illegally record it, so I can’t play it for you…he’s like, “I really, really would like for you to present this Vanguard Award to me, this would mean so much to me,” and went into all the reasons why it means so much, because he can be so sweet. He can be the sweetest. And I was so stoked that he asked me that. And so I wrote this speech up, and then we get to the VMAs and I make this speech and he screams, “MTV got Taylor Swift up here to present me this award for ratings!” [His exact words: “You know how many times they announced Taylor was going to give me the award ’cause it got them more ratings?”] And I’m standing in the audience with my arm around his wife, and this chill ran through my body. I realized he is so two-faced. That he wants to be nice to me behind the scenes, but then he wants to look cool, get up in front of everyone and talk shit.”

— Taylor Swift, Rolling Stone Magazine (Issue #1332)


This part of the interview goes on to explain how the infamous line from Kanye’s hit song “Famous” (“I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why? I made that bitch famous”) officially put them on “bad terms” following the situation described above. She even brought The 6 God into it, explaining how Kanye, in her words, “gravely affected the trajectory of Drake’s family and their lives” by allegedly telling Pusha-T about the news of Drake’s son and thus “The Story of Adidon” was born. Man, this one may go down as the longest-running pop beef ever!

New England Patriots wide receiver Antonio Brown can longer call himself a Nike athlete.

The Boston Globe reports the sneaker giant has severed ties with the trouble NFL star.

“Antonio Brown is not a Nike athlete,” a company spokesperson told The Globe, however, they did not expand on reasoning or timing in regards to the decision.

Nike is the second endorsement lost by Brown since he was named by his former trainer Britney Taylor in a civil suit. Taylor alleges Brown sexually assaulted her twice in 2017 and raped her in 2018 in the states of Pennsylvania and Florida, respectively.

Taylor recently met with the NFL in what was reportedly a 10-hour meeting. The NFL has yet to provide details of the meeting and has not issued a suspension.

Nike has already removed Brown’s signature sneaker from their website.

The jokes on the Internet has been about how Tekashi 6ix9ine is telling on everybody while he is on the stand delivering his testimony against former association Anthony “Harv” Ellison and Aljermiah “Nuke” Mack. In a wild turn to this already crazy three days of testifying, 6ix9ine has named Jim Jones as a member of the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods.

Twitter has been following along with Tekashi’s statements via the Inner City Press tweet stream and was surprised to see 6ix9ine mention the Dipset Capo, which he refers to as a “retired rapper.”

XXL details Jones and 6ix9ine had been seen together prior to the latter’s arrest. In an interview with The Cruz Show, Jones deemed 6ix9ine “unmentionable” for some of his moves.

“He did some actions that he can’t come back from, so his name non-mentionable. If you a rat, then you’re a rat forever. That’s a subject we don’t even have to touch on,” Jones said.

Following 6ix9ine confirming the identity of Jones, prosecutors played a phone call that allegedly has the “We Fly High” rapper stating 6ix9ine is no longer a gang member.

Alan Maloney, the referee who made 16-year-old high school wrestler Andrew Johnson cut his dreadlocks in order to compete in his next match, has been suspended for two years, USA Today reports.

The state division on civil rights investigation found that Maloney determined that Johnson required a hair covering and gave Johnson the choice of cutting his hair or forfeiting after no covering could be located that satisfied rules governing long hair.

The report concluded, however, that various New Jersey wrestling officials had interpreted the rule to apply to various traditionally black hairstyles regardless of length.

The agreement between the civil rights office and the New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association announced Wednesday seeks to eliminate interpretations of the rule “that allowed wrestling officials to determine that traditionally Black hairstyles were ‘unnatural’ or to subject wrestlers with traditionally Black hairstyles to differential treatment as to when a hair cover was required.”

As part of Wednesday’s agreement, the athletic association will provide in-person training to all wrestling officials in the state before the start of the season to emphasize that the rule in question is based on hair length, not a hairstyle.

By the end of the 2020-2021 school year, the association will provide implicit bias training to all high school officials and require schools to provide similar training to administrators, coaches, and trainers.

Martin Luther King III is another person who feels that Colin Kaepernick can return to the NFL but it will require fans to boycott the NFL games.

In a statement to TMZ, he says, “What would change it overnight is if the public decided, ‘Okay, we’re not going to watch.'”

King III also said that Kaepernick blackballed and he is one of the best quarterbacks.

“The industry did blackball him, which is not good,” MLK III says “He certainly is one of the most talented quarterbacks even today, probably.”

Earlier this year Kaepernick grievance that he filed against the NFL in October 2018 finally reached a settlement in which he was awarded an undisclosed amount of money.

Even though a resolution was reached, Kaepernick is still optimistic about returning to football.

In August Kaepernick shared that he’s “still ready” to return, as he has been keeping up with his work out plan for the last three years.

The Boondocks has found a new home with HBO’s new streaming app, HBO Max. The streaming service has ordered a two-season 24 episode which will be premiering in Fall 2020. The new season will also feature its original series creator Aaron McGruder and Sony Pictures Animation.

The new season will follow Robert “Granddad” Freeman and his two grandsons Riley and Huey as they try to navigate  a new life in Maryland under Uncle Ruckus and his “neo-fascist regime.”

“There’s a unique opportunity to revisit the world of ‘The Boondocks’ and do it over again for today. It’s crazy how different the times we live in are now both politically and culturally more than a decade past the original series and two decades past the original newspaper comic. There’s a lot to say and it should be fun,” said McGruder.”

All 55 episodes of the original series, will also be launching on the streaming app next fall.

The Boondocks ran from 2005-2014 on Adult Swim.

Alicia Keys is officially back!

The 15-time GRAMMY Award-winning singer returns to give us new music after three long years since her last project, Here. This time around, she’s got Miguel along for the ride to present a new music video — err, “visual sonic installation” in her words! — that talks about the truest emotion in all of R&B music: love.



The new single, affectionally-titled “Show Me Love,” is beautiful both on the eye and on the ear, wrapping us in a slow-moving narrative that tells four separate but connected stories about how we channel love in our lives. Representing for “self-love” is Michael B. Jordan, one of the few A-list stars to make a cameo in the Cara Stricker-directed video. Then you have Guardians of the Galaxy heroine Zoe Saldana and her husband Marco Perego Saldana standing in as the representation of love within a relationship. Keys and Miguel share a scene for the example of love for creating art, as the two musicians have proven time and time again over the years that they are serious about their craft. The fourth, final and probably most important way love is expressed is the collective between all three narratives as “spiritual love.” It’s a beautiful sight to see, highlighted by Raphael Saadiq’s always-amazing production, and the overall result makes us extremely excited for what Alicia has in store for us in this era of her career.

Watch the video for Alicia Keys’ new single & visual sonic experience with Miguel titled “Show Me Love” above, and we’ll keep you all in the loop on any new music news from one of our favorite HERSource heroines.

If there’s one person that has a strong sense of pride for his hometown sports teams, it’s without a doubt legendary film director Spike Lee. His latest act of New York athletics pride comes in the form of a new cap collaboration with New Era that pays tribute to all 27 the New York Yankees’ World Series Championship titles.



The 59FIFTY stands in as the star of this “Spike Lee Joint designed for New Era,” as it’s literally spelled out on the sweatband of each hat option. All seven caps reflect back on each win in a different-yet-dope way, utilizing either embroidered baseball bat or baseball glove motifs. Not only are all 27 years where the Yankees won included in the design, but the classic MLB color scheme of red, white and in one instance gold remains constant throughout as well. A few of these have a more subdued design while other options are more gaudy, but each one should be an instant cop for fans of Uncle Spike, the NY Yankees franchise, the game of baseball in general or the casual swagged-out New Yorker alike.

Get your hands on any of the seven caps in Spike Lee’s New York Yankees Championship Collection alongside New Era right now. Price points for each hat change depending on the design, ranging from $42.99 – $51.99 USD, and all are available either at select headwear retailers or NewEraCap.com. Get a better look below:

For those that slept on the “Ivory Snake” AF1 that dropped not too long ago, or the Foamposite One “Snakeskin” that dropped in April, ooooooor the AJ 11 Low “Navy Snakeskin” that also arrived during the spring 2019 season, Nike is giving you yet another chance to get on your reptilian wave with a “Python” iteration of the Blazer Mid ’77 Vintage silhouette.



Similar to the aforementioned Air Force One, the base colorway of this shoe is kept white so that the snake print predominately stands out. The results are pretty luxe to say the least, with the scaly pattern appearing on the Swoosh and heel collar. Exposed seams on the inner tongue adds a pop of yellow via the insulation, meanwhile the insoles incorporate a brown hue similar to the snakeskin print. A final pop of color comes by way of infrared Swoosh logos seen on the tongue and insole, overall adding a premium update to a classic from the vault.

Pick up the Nike Blazer Mid ’77 Vintage “Python” online and at select retailers in the near future. More pics below:

Fat Joe Almost Squashed Beef Between 50 Cent and Ja Rule http://thesource.com/2019/09/18/fat-joe-almost-squashed-beef-between-50-cent-and-ja-rule/ http://thesource.com/2019/09/18/fat-joe-almost-squashed-beef-between-50-cent-and-ja-rule/#respond Wed, 18 Sep 2019 17:26:36 +0000 http://thesource.com/?p=519621 Fat Joe came close to doing the impossible.

Fat Joe came close to doing the impossible.

Joey Crack paid a visit to the world’s most dangerous morning show, The Breakfast Club. During the interview, the veteran rapper took the time to promote his upcoming album, tell stories about his prison stint with Big Pun and ending 50 Cent and Ja Rule beef.

Now the latter will certainly raise more than a few eyebrows. Fat Joe was once one of 50 Cent’s enemies, but one of Ja Rule’s good friends. Rule and Crack collaborated on “New York.”

The Cool & Dre track was initially for Fat Joe, but he turned it down. After the beat landed in the hands of Ja Rule and Irv Gotti, the final cut of the song featured Fat Joe and Jadakiss. In his verse, Ja Rule took shots at long time rival 50 Cent. 50 then responded in his song “Piggy Bank” and attacked both Fat Joe and Jadakiss saying,

“Got a hundred guns a hundred clips, why I don’t hear no shots?
That fat nigga thought “Lean Back” was “In Da Club”
My shit sold 11 mill, his shit was a dud
Jada don’t fuck with me if you want to eat
‘Cause I’ll do your little ass like Jay did Mobb Deep
Yea homie, in New York niggas like your vocals
But that’s only New York dog, your ass is local”

Joe wanted to bring the two New York rappers out to a concert. His attempt was destroyed after proposing it to Irv Gotti and Ja Rule. They fervently dismissed the idea.

Although Fat Joe has made amends with Fifty, he admitted that beefing with the G-Unit honcho is not the best move if you don’t have tough skin. Peep the full interview below.
