Life Beyond Rap


t.i. footaction prank

If you ever find yourself saying, “I’m here to get styled by T.I.,” then you ought to know something’s up (no offense, Tip). The Hustle Gang general conned a few fans into thinking he was treating them to an all-expenses-paid trip to Footaction, only to dip at the last minute and leave them footing the bill. That second dude’s reaction when he hears “so that’ll be $10,467.37″ is priceless.

In other news, T.I.’s Paperwork: The Motion Picture is out now.

meek

Augusta Alsina can tell you from personal experience what it’s like to be down. In the last year, the singer has had some serious life events rock his world. So it’s no wonder that he shares a close friendship with the incarcerated Meek Mill. Last night August hit IG with his bro Meek on the phone. Sounding like he was still on the streets. MMG’s young prince had a positive vibe as he enthusiastically told fans he would hit the ground running upon his release.

“Squad kalled from that shit hole… Good to hear & feel a smile on em thru it all. I tol em God sat us down differently but at the end of it all he SAT US DOWN! He said Exactly! We jus gotta know/recognize when da Man giving you a chance to get your shit in order then Come back stronger then ever. #HeSayHeMightFuckArounNwearASuitOnceAWeek #ISaid 😳😱 #NoooImNotReady *K.Hart voice 😂 #FreeMeekMilly”

kesha-dr-luke-ascap

 

In early January, 2014, multi-platinum pop star Kesha (“Tik Tok”, “Animal”, “C’mon”, “Die Young,” etc) entered herself into a treatment center to deal with her anorexia and bulimia. At the time, Kesha via her outspoken mother Pebe Sebert, blamed Kesha’s body image problems on criticism from her label head/producer Dr. Luke. After spending 2 months in rehab (with mom Pebe checking in as well to be with her daughter and get treatment for “post-traumatic stress”), Kesha was released and posted online that she’s back to making music. But today, she dropped a bombshell lawsuit, accusing Dr. Luke of nearly 10 years of abuse, ranging from sexual assault to forced drug use to battery. Much more serious than the original fat-shaming claims.

Update: Dr. Luke has responded with his own lawsuit…charging Kesha with extortion.

Philly fans have always had a reputation as being a rowdy bunch, but these recent string of incidents at their stadium may be new lows. The first report actually was a heinous act done on a well known Eagles. fan. Yesterday (Oct 12)), a drunk woman stole a prosthetic leg from a local legend named Sonny Forriest Jr.–a staple at Philly’s Lincoln Financial Field. Authorities later found the leg on the local septa train. Why?1

That wasn’t all that happened in the City of Brotherly Love, though. During the game, one unsuspecting Giants was actually pelted with garbage and taunted as he tried to find his seat from the concession stand. Bad enough, his the G-men got blown out.

bun-b

While rap culture has been known for death stares and ice grilling, Bun B smiles bright in a commercial for Rembrandt, a teeth whitening company. The UGK member adds toothpaste model to his resume, appearing alongside Marvel comics editor Sana Amanat and Top Chef winner Kristen Kish in the toothpaste commerical. “I am probably not the normal person that you’d see in a toothpaste ad,” says the Port Arthur, Texas rapper. “I think my smile is unique and it’s intoxicating,” he later closes with.

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.

I’ve always been a sci-fi book and movie junkie…from Dune to 2001: A Space Odessey, from Ender’s Game (the book only) to Mission To Mars. So I couldn’t dream of a better combination than Interstellar‘s science fiction, space travel, the end of the world, and Christopher Nolan, the man who made Inception, The Dark Knight trilogy, and Momento. There’s been so much mystery surrounding the project, even the first trailers gave zero hints about what the movie was even about….but judging from this final trailer, we know Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway travel through space to another planet with an earth-like atmosphere. And it seems that Earth is dire need of a plan B.
That’s about all I can tell…but it’s gorgeous, and I don’t want to know more, and I just want November 7th to get here so I can see it.

jay z david beckham psg

We’re used to seeing Jay Z and Beyoncé soak up the action courtside at the Barclays Center, but the Carters sampled some top level European soccer last night as they nabbed tickets for the UEFA Champions League clash between Paris St. Germain and FC Barcelona at the Parc des Princes. Hov was sat next to former PSG player and soccer legend David Beckham, which was lucky, because it looked like he had absolutely no idea what he was watching. Good thing Becks was around to school him on the beautiful game (and discuss potential plans for an epic Roc Nation Sports deal, if we’re speculating).

(Sidebar: Jay has been spotted at a few Arsenal games and was even close to investing in the London club, so to be fair, he’s probably not entirely clueless about footy).

meek mill in jail

Being thrown in jail — for a probation violation, no less — in July really put a halt to Meek Mill’s album plans this year, but the Philly rapper is keeping his spirits high while inside. Always showing support to his MMG artist, Rick Ross shared a few photos of Meek behind bars over the weekend to assure fans he’s doing ok, and he’ll be home soon. After being denied a request for early release last month, Meek will be eligible for parole on October 11.
