stephen colbert kanye west ellen spoof

Kanye West appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show last week and, depending on who you ask, either delivered a profound speech that changed daytime television forever…or waffled for eight minutes about how dressing people in overpriced Star Wars costumes will somehow end all suffering in the world. Stephen Colbert clearly thought the latter.

Poking fun at Kanye’s exploits for the second time this year, The Late Show host delivered his own Yeezy-esque stream-of-consciousness — only Colbert’s plan to change the world revolves around the indisputably important issue of hot dog buns. Cough up, Zuckerberg.

In the meantime, Mac puts on his producer’s hat (the one that reads “Larry Fisherman”) and lets Boston’s Michael Christmas go to work on his latest “!Go Fish!” freebie.

jim jones new album

Cam dropped a new one last week, Juelz has a bunch of projects on deck, and now it looks like Jim Jones is ready to make a comeback of his own this summer. The Vamp Life capo has been cooking up a new album called The Kitchen, which he’ll finally release on June 3.

Serving as Jimmy’s first studio album since 2011’s Capo, the 14-track project is packed with appearances from fellow Harlemites A$AP Ferg, Dave East and Neek Bucks, as well as Kevin Gates, Fred the Godson and Cory Gunz. Ferg pops up on the recently released “Harlem,” but it appears his and Jim Jones’ other collab, “Finesse” (which also features Rich Homie Quan and Desiigner) didn’t make the cut.

Either way, we’re here for new Cam, Jimmy and Juelz this summer — even if it’s only solo projects.

Check out the artwork and tracklisting below…

SHYNE-PUFF

Shyne and Puff Daddy’s longtime relationship has had its series of ups and downs. When Diddy first introduced the Brooklyn rapper to the world, it seemed like he found his next big star. However, things quickly changed as they found themselves tangled in a court case that became front page of every New York newspaper.

Even after Shyne served a lengthy prison sentence from that incident, things were shaky between the two for years. But thanks to the powers that be — and livestreaming technology — Shyne Po reunited with his old family for Biggie’s birthday. In honor of the late rap don, Po performed at night 2 of the Bad Boy Reunion tour at the Barclays Center via livestream from Belize.

The iconic Prince, who passed away late last month, was tributed with a special performance at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards on Sunday night in Las Vegas.

I want to take a moment to remember the great Prince Rogers Nelson,” said Questlove of the Roots before a moment of silence. “It can be a moment of silence, but inside our heads, it should be anything but silent,” he continued before introducing Madonna, who performed “Nothing Compares 2 U.” Dressed in purple from head-to-toe, Madonna was joined by special guest Stevie Wonder, as the two did an emotional cover of Prince’s “Purple Rain.”

Moments after, the performance received plenty of backlash from viewers who took to social media to express their thoughts. The Roots’ Questlove soon took to Twitter shortly after to address those comments.
