Berner Enlists Wiz Khalifa & Chevy Woods For “Wassup”

Berner is readying yet another project which is set to drop very soon. The rapper’s been consistently delivering new music over the years at a frequent pace. Earlier this year, he teamed up with fellow California native Mozzy for their collaborative effort, Slimey Individuals which hailed major features outside of the Taylor Gang conglomerate. As he readies the release of El Chivo which arrives next week, he unleashes a new single with Wiz Khalifa and Chevy Woods.

Berner keeps his latest track, “Wassup” a strictly Taylor Gang affair. The rapper links up with Wiz Khalif and Chevy Woods for the track which finds them hopping on production that’s reminiscent of the Cabin Fever tapes. Berner’s new single follows the release of his 4/20 anthem “Get Rich Or Die Smokin.”

Wiz and Chevy make additional appearances on El Chivo. Wiz Khalifa joins Berner “Do What We Want” while Chevy joins Berner and Majix on “Sit Down.’

Quotable Lyrics
Kingpin shit, big grown, Colorado
Ride out to Vegas with clones in the Tahoe
Big Bern, baby girl, I’m a dope boy
I kill for my brother like Doughboy

49ers Draft Pick Dre Greenlaw Praised By Man For Saving Daughter From Sexual Assault

Earlier this month, the San Francisco 49ers revealed their draft pick for 2019 which included Dre Greenlaw. Greenlaw played college in Arkansas, making him a local star of sorts. However, there’s more to his character than we know. Greenlaw received praise from a father who revealed that the linebacker once helped his daughter from getting sexually assaulted.

Gerry Dales took to Twitter to share a story about Greenlaw after he was announced as the 148th draft pick for the 49ers. He began to explain that during his daughter went to a college party as a freshman and also didn’t have much experience drinking. Someone ended up putting something in her drink while she wasn’t paying attention. At the time, Dre was also a freshman and went to high school with Dales daughter but Greenlaw didn’t know the guy who was all over Dale’s daughter.

“When that guy tried to steer my daughter out the front door, he stopped the guy and said ‘she’s not going anywhere,'” Dales wrote. “The guy backed down, and no one saw him again. No one at the party seemed to know who he was, and my daughter and her friends never saw him again.”

He explained how Greenlaw’s decision to swoop in and protect the girl could’ve cost him his fate in the NFL. “He was a starter on the Razorbacks. His place was not secure. He was underage and at a kegger. He wasn’t drinking, but if there was a fight he was risking getting thrown off the team. In some ways, he was risking everything,” Dale wrote.

“I didn’t ever tell this story, because maybe someone would say “oh, he shouldn’t have been at that party.” Maybe not. But he had my daughter’s back, and for that I will always owe him,” the father wrote. “So, do me a favor. Root for Dre. He’s a good kid with a good heart.”

Sources tell them that students were giving a presentation in a classroom when the shooting occurred. The two dead are reportedly two white males, but their ages and names have not yet been released.

They add that officials confirmed that the suspect is named Trystan Terrell, a 22-year-old history major at UNCC.

U.S. Representative Richard Hudson (NC-08) has released a statement on the shooting:

“Renee and I are heartbroken to see this violence in our community and at my alma mater,” said Rep. Hudson. “We are grateful for the quick and selfless action of first responders and police. Our thoughts and prayers are with victims, their families, and the entire 49er community. I will continue to monitor the situation and pray for the safety of all on campus.”

Basin-Less Braggin: You Won’t Believe How Much Kim Kardashian’s Superfluously Steep Sink Costs

Kim Kardashian has taken the phrase “if you got it, flaunt” to another level when it comes to her and Kanye West‘s pristine Calabasas home.  Earlier this week, Kim took to Instagram to give followers a glimpse at her simply lavish pad, and fans were geeked when they saw her basin-less kitchen sink.

The unique feature was designed by Kanye himself, and now we know how many Kardashian koins they spent making it. According to Tamara Day, host of HGTV’s Bargain Mansions, Kardashian’s basin-less sink with a sloped countertop and a slit for a drain could cost at least $25,750. Day told PEOPLE,

“It’s a tricky balance getting the slope just right without severe angles, so the water stays in one place! Only the best fabricator can accomplish this.”

She added that the unique bathroom sink is made of quartz, which she estimates would cost around $15,000 to use on the countertop, the custom slope and the 6-inch mitered edge. While the custom cabinet below the sink likely cost somewhere in the $10,000 range.

“As for the faucet, Day believes it could be the Purist Faucet from Kohler, which runs around $700, and comes in several finishes, with black (the one she believes was used in Kardashian’s bathroom) being the most expensive.”

What Janeé witnessed some very lively competition between a cast of unforgettable characters. The teams were comprised of actors Jaleel White and Omar Benson Miller, along with NBA baller turned entertainer John Salley, who served as their captain; pitted against Mekhi Phifer and “Surviving Compton” actor Curtis Hamilton under the leadership of last year’s winner Carmelita Jeter. Both teams were coached by professional racedrivers; Jack Hawksworth coached Team Jeter and Scott Pruett coached Team Salley.

The winning team stood to capture a major donation to a charity of their choice as well as a new Lexus for the fastest driver. Big Tigger presided over the battle as host. Check out what Tigger had to say about the Lexus he would have chosen if he won the competition.

Tekashi 6ix9ine Federal Case: More Guilty Pleas Could Be Coming

There have been tons of twists and turns in the complicated federal case involving Tekashi 6ix9ine. At the beginning of the case, his former manager, Shotti, reportedly proclaimed in court, “we don’t fold, we don’t bend, we don’t break. It’s Tr3yway,” while under oath. That statement has not aged well given that 6ix9ine and Shotti were among the half a dozen defendants who took guilty pleas in the case. Earlier today, the case had its first all-defendant conference since February where it was revealed that a few more Nine Trey associates could also be copping guilty pleas.

According to Complex, the hearing at Manhattan’s Thurgood Marshall Courthouse focused primarily on procedural issues as well as new evidence brought forth by the feds. Kintea “Kooda B” McKenzie was at the center of the new evidence that was introduced. Kooda B is accused of ringing off shots at Chief Keef outside of Manhattan’s W Hotel last year which he was promised $20K from 6ix9ine for the act. 6ix9ine admitted to his involvement in the case.

The evidence brought forth was a water bottle that was seen in the surveillance video of the Manhattan shooting. The police found the bottle before sending it off for DNA testing. According to the government, McKenzie’s DNA was “included” on the bottle. U.S. Attorney Michael Longyear said that the chances that the DNA belongs to someone else are “a trillion to one.” 

Longyear told the judge that they were working on more guilty pleas. “We are engaged in active plea discussions with several of the defendants,” he told the judge before revealing that there are less than three defendants in talks for taking guilty pleas.

Kim Kardashian Is Here For Kanye West’s Church Plans: Report

Last week, rumors began circling surrounding new plans for Kanye West’s Sunday services. The rapper allegedly has been feeling inspired to commence his very own church, mainly due to his involvement in the extravagant holy services. Considerably, we documented the previous backlash from fellow music head Joe Budden, who had a lot to say with regards to Kanye’s recent religious initiatives: “From justifying bigotry on your ppl to Church merch and Coachella choirs… God bless us all.” The news of a potential church further sparked a debate which made us consider whether or not Joe Budden’s previous concerns surrounding Kanye’s motivations were valid. 

Well, it seems that regardless of what anyone may say, Kanye can still count on one person to back him up in whatever endeavor he undertakes. According to Complex, an unnamed source has confirmed that Kanye’s wife Kim Kardashian is fully supportive of her husband’s alleged church plans. The source goes onto add “Kim is 100 percent on board with this. She’s a Christian, too, and she understands the importance of being spiritual.”

Thus, if Kanye does decide to follow up on the allegations by starting a church, bae will be right by his side. The anonymous tipper also stated: “She wouldn’t be a traditional ‘pastor’s wife’ who organizes bake sales. But she will support him if he ever starts a church. She’ll be there for it.” To note, the church plans are still rumors, but it’s good to see Kanye’s wife rides for him regardless.

A “Saints Row” Movie Is Reportedly In Pre-Production

Today, Deadline has reported that director F. Gary Gray (Straight Outta Compton) is in the process of developing a cinematic adaptation of the outlandish video game series Saints Row. The games, which have spawned four installments, centers around the Third Street Saints and their quest for hood dominance. It’s unclear whether the film will be borrowing from existing plot points or simply drawing inspiration from the rich setting – either way, all signs point to this one moving forward.

One has to wonder, however, if Saints Row can separate itself from the lingering “video game movie” curse that seems to permeate. From Super Mario Bros to Bloodrayne to the doomed and sunk Bioshock to the non-Persian-led Prince Of Persia, video game flicks have proven time and time again to misfire across the board. While there’s occasionally charm to such films as Silent Hill and Resident Evil, we have yet to see an effort even remotely resembling…a good movie. Many gamers have been left wondering whether such film adaptations are even needed at all. With excellent voice acting from performers like Nolan North and Troy Baker, many video games already feature compelling and well-realized narratives as it stands. 

And yet, F. Gary Gray is a capable director, and one has to wonder whether such a zany franchise as Saint’s Row might spark a few creative brainstorming sessions in the writer’s room, at the very least. Do you have any expectations for this, if and when it does arrive?

Kehlani Shows Insane Post-Pregnancy Body

In late March of this year, singer Kehlani revealed she gave birth to a baby girl named Adeya. The expecting mother was thrilled and penned a heart-warming message to her newborn child, referring to her experience with pregnancy as “the absolute hardest yet most powerful thing” she’s ever done. As such, recent reports indicated the soulstress received a personal gift from legendary singer and performer Beyonce, as a way to congratulate her on the new addition to the family. The gift consisted of a t-shirt with the word “Mother” on it. The R&B vocalist was thrilled and shared her excitement via Twitter.

Though we’re happy to know Kehlani gave birth to a healthy baby and recovered from the pregnancy, the crooner’s most recent IG photo has everyone shook. The picture, demonstrating a peaceful Kehlani posing by the beautiful and green-filled LA, left fans in awe of the singer’s post-baby bounce back. Indeed, no signs of a previous pregnancy are in sight and Kehlani looks amazing. The songwriter’s fitted in a tight, black dressed revealing her chiseled curves and super-toned legs. Damn, Lani. What’s your secret? 

The bounce-back may come second to Teyana Taylor, who also revealed a chiseled frame shortly after giving birth to baby, Junie. #Bodygoals
