Crony-ism


migos offset superman punch

Fight Night, Round Two.

After beating up a chain-snatcher back in August, Migos was involved in another brawl during a recent concert in Springfield, Massachusetts — only the way this scuffle started is truly incredible. As you can see in the clip below, Offset stares down a fan near the front row before launching himself — chains and all — into the crowd, attempting to Superman punch a concert go-er. Naturally, the crowd dispersed as more punches were thrown, but thankfully it wasn’t long before the show resumed. It’s unclear why Offset attacked the fan, but they must have been spouting some serious slander.

drake threatens stripper

Drake may be under police investigation after a stripper claimed his people threatened her life after a one-night stand, according to TMZ. The stripper, Jhonni Blaze, alleges the OVO rapper began harassing her via text for fear she would go public with the story. She then claims several people from Drake’s camp “came to her house, banged on her door and threatened her life.” While Houston PD confirms they are investigating a “possible celebrity,” sources close to Drake say the allegations are false. Either way, this is one of the most hilariously ironic stories of the year.

migos brawl

The trio’s “shootout” show in Miami back in March should have served as prior warning not to mess with Migos, but clearly some people don’t take heed. One club goer learned the consequences first-hand after allegedly attempting to snatch a chain from the Atlanta trio at their show in Nashville over the weekend, only to get stomped out. It’s unclear whether Offset, Quavo or Takeoff actually delivered the fade, although they are seen brawling in the predictably shaky video below. “When n****s try to snatch chains on stage it don’t go well for em!!!” wrote DJ Jrum Major, who posted a not-so-flattering picture of the suspected thief on Instagram.

Sometimes a song drops out of the sky and splits you right in two. That’s this song.
“A Kiss Goodbye,” is written and produced by superproducer Emile Haynie, featuring quite the combination of heavy collaborators…guitar by Dev Hynes aka Blood Orange, vocals by Charlotte Gainsbourg, who is basically de facto French royalty–a singer, actress, and fashion muse who happens to also be the daughter of music and arts legend Serge Gainsbourg and actress Jane Birkin (yes, as in…the Hermes Birkin. #headcrack). But it’s the second half of this unexpected song that will do you in….
Sampha‘s trembling voice and these lyrics about the bitter burning aftertaste of a love left to rot…

did it ever occur that you forgave yourself before I did.
did it ever occur that you forgave yourself before I could.
So I’m not cool with you.
I’m done and done and done…

Far too real for anyone who’s felt that same hurt.

Now we already know Emile Haynie’s work with Lana Del Rey, Bruno Mars, Kid Cudi, and most recently, Eminem’s new single with Sia “Guts Over Fear”…he’s long fine-tuned the blend of melancholy and hip hop aggression. But this song is much more personal. Is it part of a larger compilation? Well, I’ve heard more than I can speak on yet…but the future looks quite bright for those who love music about the darkest moments.

Stop everything and listen to Emile Haynie’s “A Kiss Goodbye”….

ASAP-Rocky-Chanel-Iman-Vogue-6

There may be more famous and more exciting power couples in the hip hop hemisphere…but my vote for purely best looking goes to ASAP Rocky and his supermodel girlfriend Chanel Iman. Just look at these cheekbones! For all the stereotypes about haughty snotty models, and all the stereotypes about surly asshole rappers…in all my experiences, Chanel and Rocky have been the total opposite. If you’ve watched the recent Noisey documentary about Rocky, you can see some of the endearing personality I’m talking about. And as for Chanel…I remember this one time when Rocky excited introduced me to her as “his other favorite woman” and she never turned up her nose or gave me the side-eye. She was very warm and sweet. Months later, Rocky had to do a string of interviews for the BET Awards in LA, I noticed Chanel sitting in the hallway, on the floor, very content, just waiting for her BF for over an hour…like she wasn’t one of the most photographed women in fashion. Kind of amazing.

Anyways, it was only a matter of time for these two to end up with their own Vogue Magazine editorial…and I can see them as cover subjects too. Fashion fan Fucci posted scans of their Vogue September 2014 shoot, spotted on Complex Style Channel.

masses.”-Funk Flex

Props to my girl Tiff the Stylist, Bobby Trends, Tat Wza, DJ Juanyto, who are also reportedly involved in one way or another.

50 cent steve stoute

It was a pretty routine evening at MSG last night — by that I mean the Knicks lost their fifth game in a row, falling 126-103 to the Warriors. One slice of entertainment, however, came from courtside when 50 Cent appeared to confront Steve Stoute. The two have, shall we say, history (Stoute dropped Fiddy from Sony/Columbia back in 2000 following his shooting), but just this week, Stoute appeared on Hot 97 and passed a few not-so-flattering comments about Curtis Jackson:

50 hasn’t had a hit in a really long time. He has not made anything musically that has changed anything in a very really long time. I feel like he’s always gearing up for something that never happens.

You’re a brave man, Steve, we’ll give you that.

Having had the pleasure of spending time IRL with actors Gabrielle Union and Romany Malco, I know first-hand how stomach-crampingly hilarious these two both are. They star in the upcoming Think Like a Man 2, which hits theaters on June 20th, along with Kevin Hart, LaLa Anthony, Terrence J, Fonzworth Bentley, the hysterical stand-up comedian Gary Owen (he plays “the white friend” lol), and more. In this sequel to the 2012 hit, Think Like a Man, the crew of friends hit Las Vegas (a la The Hangover) for a bachelor’s/bachelorette’s weekend.

Check out the trailer above, and peep the official poster, after the jump.
