Hmmm?


Skip Bayless made a huge announcement this week as he revealed that he is leaving ESPN. After 12 years with the sports network, his last appearance on First Take will happen after the NBA finals. It appears as if Bayless is heading to Fox.

“I do want to thank the many people who responded by social media yesterday. Much love, even to the haters. But most of all, I want to thank this man sitting across from me for all he has done for me, and I’m gonna shake his hand, and I’m gonna tell him what I told him off the air last Friday: I love you, man. And that is from the bottom of my heart,” said Bayless

coachella

Thank technology for the livestream. No seriously, you may judge for me sounding ungrateful for having the privilege of obtaining press credentials (free passes!) for all the major musical festivals in America with a single e-mail. But as a veteran of SXSW, Coachella, Governors Ball, etc. — my days as a cheerful, green “festival journalist” have come and gone, man. Be thankful you can just watch the concerts livestreamed from the comfort of your own home.

biggie hologram

Following Tupac and Eazy-E‘s “resurrections” at Coachella and Rock The Bells, respectively, The Notorious B.I.G. is set to become the latest MC brought back to life in hologram form this year. According to Billboard, Los Angeles-based holographic technology company ARHT Media have secured the rights to Biggie’s hologram after striking a deal with ByStorm Entertainment, who handles the late rapper’s estate alongside his mother Voletta Wallace and widow Faith Evans.

quentin miller meek mill beat up

The Drake vs. Meek Mill beef may have cooled off lately, but apparently there’s still a few stones that have yet to be turned. In a recent interview with Vlad TV, Quentin Miller, who allegedly ghostwrote a number of songs on Drake’s If You’re Reading This, It’s Too Late, admitted that he got beat up by Meek Mill over the whole saga.

jay z dj khaled

DJ Khaled is suffering from a near-fatal case of success these days and there’s no road to remission in sight. Not long after scoring his own slot on Beats 1 Radio, the We The Best boss is now being managed by none other than Jay Z. Khaled made the major announcement in a typically theatrical video, in which Hov crowns him with the last original Roc-A-Fella chain in his collection. To further whet our appetites, the clip also features roughly eight seconds of new Jay Z raps.

It’s unclear whether Jay is individually managing Khaled or he’s just signed to Roc Nation management (he has a habit of overstating things). Also interesting is the tech company rivalry sub-plot to this new partnership (Khaled recently aligned with Apple Music while Hov is the part owner of TIDAL). In any case, chalk this up as Another One™ in Khaled’s win column.

instagram-film-feature-480x480

Instagram may not be as culpable as Vine when it comes to fueling the fire of dwindling attention spans (I know, that sounds crazy, but at this rate their 15-second videos will feel like watching The Godfather trilogy in one sitting compared to Vine’s fleeting clips), but they’re certainly catering to the ADD generation with this latest venture.

stacey-dash

Stacey Dash certainly knows how to troll people just like her cousin Dame.. but that’s a whole other story.

Her latest media whirlwind started earlier this week when she stated that America should do a way with Black History Month and that BET “lies to black people.” She’s been known to make outlandish comments before, but was just over the freakin’ top. BET even wasted no time in reminding her that it was that long ago when Stacey was earning a BET check for appearing on their hit show The Game.

Read her whole explanation below after the jump.

twitter extend character limit

Could this be the end of Twitter as we know it? According to “people familiar with the company’s plans,” the social network is considering lifting its 140-character cap for tweets — a feature that is as synonymous with Twitter as the blue bird itself — and extending it to as much as 10,000 (talk about taking baby steps).

kim-kanye

Don’t expect Kanye West and Kim Kardashian to roll out their own line of wine like E-40, but they do now have a real vineyard on their estate in Hidden Hills, California.

Sources close to the family say they are in the middle of fixing up their French château–style mansion which just so happens to have a small vineyard. “They consulted experts to get it operable again,” says the source.
