This week, Atlanta-based songstress Shamba returns with a quick bite, gifting fans with her four-track Reset EP. Per usual, the soundscapes are the offspring of producer Mike Kalombo as the beatmaker crafts a cohesive sound that finds Shamba floating over routinely mid-tempo offerings laced in keen combinations of skilled instrumentation and trap beats.
For the most part, listeners can catch Shamba going solo, save for project standout “Day Party,” in which she enlists the help of southern spitter Deante’ Hitchcock for a verse on the mellowed out offering. No surprises that Hitchcock effortlessly glides on with a drawl courtesy of Atlanta’s southside to deliver a balanced response to Shamba’s own vocals. The appearance arrives on the heels of a solid cameo from Deante’ on Revenge Of The Dreamers 3′s “PTSD” cut alongside Omen, St. Beauty and Mereba.
Catch “Day Party” below and be sure to visit Reset in its entirety.
She was a Cancer queen
You know I like them July babies
You drink, I drink, you smoke, I smoke
Well shit, let’s get high baby
Pulled up with the stick
And she let me hit like I’m SahBabii
Kodak Black is now one weekremoved from submitting a guilty plea in his federal gun case.
In a candid moment, the South Florida-bred artist took to social media to give fans an update on his stint behind bars. The visual comes courtesy of a photo featuring Kodak’s fan mail and the usual commissary pickups: Ramen Noodles, Minute Rice, and mackerel fillets.
Under the photo, he begins to reflect on his most recent run-in with the law, citing his failure to stay out of trouble and alluding to a higher being for the rhyme and reason behind his unfortunate circumstances.
“4 Months Ago I Was Jus Facetiming Da Baddest Females On Planet Earth , Na Im Makin Jail Calls Waitin On Mail Call,” he begins. “Ya Sometime I Come Off A Lil Arrogant But You`ll Be Too If You Was Young & Rich Comin Up Out Da Projects , Shiddd I Walked Out A Juvenile Detention Center To Millions Of Dollars #IMAGINEDAT .. On Da Real , Im Feelin Its Sumn God Wanna Show Me Or Want Me To Do Cause Im Steady Going Through Da Same Thing , Hopefully These Lessons Turn To Blessings. I Appreciate Ya`ll Screamin To Me Too LOVE.”
August 22nd marked the date that Kodak and his legal team switched from an originally not guilty plea to his current standing. He’s been in custody since Miami’s Rolling Loud Festival this year and is set to be sentenced on November 13th.

YBN Cordae and tennis superstar Naomi Osaka have been dating for close to six months now and things seem to be going strong since the “Have Mercy” rapper is in New York City to support his girlfriend for the U.S. Open. TMZ caught up with the 22-year-old and asked him how he helped Naomi prepare for her big weekend. “I make sure she in the house early and sleep on time,” he said.

As for Naomi’s big match against Coco Gauff, YBN admits that he can’t help her out too much since she knows what she’s doing. “I let her do her thing, you know what I’m saying. Just show love, motivate – she know what she doin,” he added.
YBN previously opened up about how he met Naomi at a Clippers game when they both sat in nose bleed seats and he approached her. Apparently YBN didn’t know Naomi was a pro tennis player (who once beat Serena Williams in a match) and he just had to talk to her. Fast forward a few months later and they’re still going strong and Naomi isn’t letting her man win a game of tennis without earning it.
Whether it’s at an important job interview or a first date, greeting people with a yellow smile is never a good look.

The fried chicken game got a bit greener and it seems that KFC just found their latest flex. With the rise of veganism in North American diets, KFC partnered with Beyond Meat for their new twist on their classic fried chicken. KFC announced that they’d be testing out their new product at an Atlanta location. Much like Popeyes new chicken sandwich, it appears that KFC didn’t predict the type of response they’d be getting.
The Beyond Fried Chicken seems to be a hit in the ATL. According to Engadget, the KFC location that tested out their Beyond Friend Chicken product was sold out on Aug. 27th within five hours. Lined reportedly “wrapped around the restaurant” since the store opened up. Apparently, within those five hours, they sold just as much meatless fried chicken as they do popcorn chicken in a week.
This doesn’t necessarily mean that KFC will officially add the item on their menu but it’s a good indication. What they need to ultimately find out is whether people want to come back for it. However, it seems likely that is the case. Beyond Meat has already built a great reputation outside of the fast-food world but they’ve yet to dabble into poultry. The partnership between the two companies could end up working out pretty well given the curiosity surrounding the product already.
The Buffalo Bills have released veteran NFL running-back, LeSean McCoy. McCoy is thirty-one-years-old and after a down season in 2018, it seems like the Bills believe he’s out of gas. For as elusive as McCoy has been as a back for his illustrious career, it seems he can’t continue to evade the wall all running backs (except for Frank Gore) seem to hit after 30.
Fans are already speculating where McMcoy might continue this twilight stage of his career. The Texas, Chief, and Chargers all seem like rosters he could make a significant impact on. Bleacher Report has done a full run-down on which teams suit his playstyle and why here.
According to ESPN, Bills general manager Brandon Beane, has said McCoy was surprised by the decision and seemed frustrated after learning of his fate. Beane also said that releasing McCoy was mostly a last-minute decision. The team mulled over trading the running back but inevitably decided against it. “We did look around to see if there was a right fit but we didn’t find one,” Beane said. “This kind of gives him a chance to choose his destination, as well, and he’s earned that.” We’ll have to wait and see which jersey McCoy will be rocking on the field this season.
The John Elliott Nike LeBron Icon is expected to return to retailers next week in an all-new “Parachute Beige” colorway, following up the exclusive white & black rendition that debuted last August, and the all-black iteration that dropped in May.
As it turns out, there are several other John Elliott LeBron Icons in the stash, including a pristine all-white colorway and a pink joint.
Both of the kicks feature the familiar stretch-woven upper equipped with semi-translucent paneling and an eye-catching striped design throughout. The kicks are also grounded by a full-length Air Max unit as seen on the Nike LeBron 8. Additional details include a small Nike swoosh on the toe box, sideways Nike logo on the tongue and a LeBron James x John Elliott logo stamped on the insole.
In addition to the white and pink colorways, John Elliott has hinted at a volt colorway as part of the Fall/Winter 2019 collection. Check out that version below, and stay tuned for more details.
Joe Budden has been keeping busy as of late, speaking on numerous topics while also being spoken about numerous times. Outside his comments on music and the culture, Joe was reportedly dealing with some custody issues surrounding his son and his ex Cyn Santana but all that can be put to rest for just one day since Joe headed to the heat for his birthday celebrations in Turks And Caicos.
In light of his 39th born day (that he’s celebrating with his new boo, Shadée Monique) Joe shared an expressive statement to Instagram about his trials and tribulations and journey to success.
“Blackballed to Black suited. Employable. Employing ppl. High spirited. Serene. At peace, I so appreciate both sides of the spectrum,” he wrote. “They’ve loved and hated me, I’ve lost it all 10 times over, from projects and abandoned buildings to Fortune 500 companies never abandoning a project I’m building, to do it right means contradicting yourself a million times & living 50 lives in one.”
Shadee has been sharing lots of vacation updates on her Instagram story but has kept Joe’s appearance in her social shares at the very minimum.
Lindsay Lohan sporadically reappears on the pop culture radar and each reappearance tends to be accompanied by a headline that is more bizarre than the previous. However, I don’t know if she will ever be able to top that time when she went on Instagram live, feigning a Middle Eastern accent, and tried to kidnap a little girl from her mother on the streets of Russia.
After laying relatively low recently, on Thursday, a snippet for her upcoming single, “Xanax”, was premiered on Virgin Radio Dubai’s “The Kris Fade Show”. If you’re wondering why her preferred means of teasing this track was through a Dubai radio station, it’s likely because she’s been living there on-and-off since 2016. She split her time between there and Greece, where she opened three night clubs, including the one in Mykonos that was featured in her short-lived MTV series, Lindsay Lohan’s Beach Club.
Now, after these shaky ventures into the worlds of human rights activism, the hospitality industry, and television, Lohan is returning to one of the mediums that made her such a star in the first place, music. Although a title like “Xanax” would trigger a cynical response in most – due to its pervasive and dangerous recreational use in today’s culture – Lohan detailed that the song is about “anxiety and pressure and taking care of yourself.” Based on the snippet, this may just be the self-care banger that the people need. After all, you can’t deny that “Rumors” slapped.

Disney is making all the right moves this Fall. They’ve already got their new streaming service going live in a few months, which is having a remarkably good sale right now, and they’ve just announced they will be re-releasing a pair of their classic games from the 1990’s. According to The Hollywood Reporter, both Aladdin and The Lion King will be available on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC as a package deal called Disney Classic Games: Aladdin and The Lion King. The updated version will be playable in HD quality.
The two games were originally released back in 1993 and 1994 on the Sega Genesis and Super Nintendo consoles. They were very popular at the time, selling millions of copies each, so Disney is hoping the capitalize on the nostalgia of that wide fan base as well as a new generation of fans. The release comes at the perfect time for Disney. They are still fresh off the release of a live-action remake of TheLion King as well as a live-action adaptation of Aladdin. Both films were able to surpass $1 billion in earnings at the box office.
Be on the lookout for The Disney Classic Games: Aladdin and The Lion King bundle for $29.99 this Fall.
