Both Future and Chris Brown performed at the 2017 BET Awards on Sunday night (Jun. 25). Following the 4-hour show, the Freebandz rapper and R&B star appeared on BET’s The Afterparty Live! where they premiered the music video for “Pie,” a new collaboration between the two. Directed by Nick Walker, the video is a reflection of the playful record, where Hendrix and Breezy invite a handful girls over for some fun at their private getaway. Without any prior knowledge, the girls eventually find out the invite was open to all sexy women in the area. Not to worry, everyone is quickly open to share in the action.

meek mill yba

If Safaree’s claims that Meek Mill’s crew jumped him are indeed just “distractions,” the MMG rapper isn’t letting the drama take his eyes off the prize as he debuts his brand new single, “YBA (Young Black America)” featuring The-Dream. The song borrows Bink!’s smooth beat from Jay Z’s “Blueprint (Momma Loves Me),” and like Hov’s original, finds Meek reflecting on his rough childhood. The accompanying video brings the song to life as the Philly native pulls up to his hood in a Rolls Royce and relives his past — one filled with death, drugs and destruction.

“YBA” follows up recent singles like “Glow Up” and the Chris Brown and Ty Dolla $ign-assisted “Whatever You Need,” though it’s unclear which — if any — will appear on Meek’s upcoming album Wins & Losses.

earl-sweatshirt-rbma-sonar-bcn-2017

Since the release of I Don’t Like Shit, I Don’t Go Outside back in 2015, Earl Sweatshirt fiends have had to rely on lo-fi loosies and unreleased material like “Solace,” “Balance” and “Death Whistle” to get their fix. During a special Detroit episode of his and Knxwledge’s Red Bull Music Academy Radio show, Stay Inside, earlier this week, Earl delivered a live performance of a new song straight from his stash called “hat trick,” which features a side of “human error.”

Hopefully this means a new Sweatshirt album is coming soon.
