The holidays are here, meaning the traditional Thanksgiving Day game at Cowboys Stadium went down in Dallas, Texas on Thursday afternoon. This year’s matchup at AT&T Stadium featured the hometown Dallas Cowboys hosting the Oakland Raiders. Just months after opening the World Series, Mary J. Blige returned to the national sports stage to sing the “Star-Spangled Banner.”

The Queen of Hip-Hop Soul’s A Mary Christmas holiday album is out now.

It’s an extra special Thanksgiving for Fat Joe this year. The Bronx vet was released early from prison today after serving just three months of his four-month sentence for tax evasion. As originally reported, Joe failed to pay taxes on more than $1 million in income between 2007 and 2008. Hours ago, the rapper posted the heartwarming video above of him surprising his daughter.

Gunplay Numbers on the Boards

For his latest freestyle, Don Logan goes in over Pusha T’s Don Cannon-produced “Numbers on the Boards.” Amongst his raspy rhymes lies a little nod to that infamous incident at the BET Hip-Hop Awards last year: “I must be super insane to punch 50 in the face and beat a sentence in vain.” Nice to see MMG’s most underrated fired up as his debut album, Living Legend, looms.

The LIFT OFF put Jhene Aiko on the spot and asked her a very interesting question on their show recently and she had to be honest about who she would f***, marry or kill between Big Sean, Drake and J. Cole. She hesitated and felt a little uncomfortable with the answer, but in the end, she decided for Sean Don as the screw, Drizzy to marry and Cole World to murder.

Not only that, but she also spoke on her recently released Sail Out EP, when the album will be released and what it feels like to perform with Drake on stage, with every person in the crowd knowing every word of her songs.
