Ayesha Curry Jokes About Size Of Her Baby Boy: “We Birthed A Viking”

Ayesha Curry is having some fun today at the expense of her baby boy. During her appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Friday, Ayesha & Ellen joked about the size of her 17-month-old son Canon, especially compared to her other daughters Riley & Ryan.

“How old is the youngest?” Ellen asked Ayesha, as the Food Network star began to chuckle. “He’s 17 months,” she laughed. “He’s huge!” DeGeneres replied. “He’s a viking. We birthed a viking,” Ayesha then said, trying to keep a straight face.

Ellen would go on to ask if Canon always looked big for his age, questioning Ayesha about his weight at birth. Coincidentally, Ayesha says he was one of their smallest kids at birth. “He was one of our smallest, he was 6 [pounds] 7 [ounces], so I don’t know what happened,” the mom admitted.

“He looks like he’s 10 years old!” Ellen jokingly said.

Ayesha revealed that her son is so big that when her family does the laundry, the mix-ups in clothes don’t seem to make a difference. “We keep putting him in Ryan’s pants by accident and they fit perfect, he fills them right out,” Ayesha said.

Nardwuar Reacts To Being Sampled In Lil Uzi Vert’s “Futsal Shuffle”

Lil Uzi Vert was fleet of foot long before he dropped the challenge-ready “Futsal Shuffle.” Exhibit A, his swift departure from a Nardwuar interview, which quickly evolved into an iconic moment of sorts. In fairness, he did seem to think the Canadian interviewer was exhibiting fed-like behavior; his facial expression speaks volumes, bamboozled by Nardwuar’s unparalleled sleuthing. Upon receiving one gift too many, Uzi could bear the conversation no longer and fled for the hills. The absurdly comic spectacle soon became viewed by over three million people, and before long, Uzi was making a habit of bolting from the Human Serviette.

Don’t get it twisted, however. The blood is far from bad. The release of “Futsal Shuffle” confirmed that the love remains mutual, with Uzi actually including samples of Nardwuar’s instantly-recognizable cadence. It didn’t take long for Nardwuar to catch wind of the homage, taking to Twitter to offer his celebratory take. 

“Honoured to be sampled twice (!) in Lil Uzi Vert’s new song “Futsal Shuffle,” tweets Nardwuar, alongside a link of the aforementioned interview for archival purposes. Clearly, he’s become entwined with the Philadelphia rapper, and perhaps we’ll one day see them converse uninterrupted. Although, given all they’ve been through, perhaps they’re simply destined for an eternal game of cat and mouse.

50 Cent Gunning For Rick Ross To Lose $32 Million Battle Over Sex Tape

It’s no secret that 50 Cent and Rick Ross don’t have the greatest relationship in the world. A few months ago, Fif said during an interview that he couldn’t name a single thing that he respects about Rozay’s career. Earlier in the year, Ross said that he would hop on a record with his rival “if he was still dope.” These days, their shots are mostly petty, scratching the surface and not entirely digging too deep. However, their battle in court is pretty harsh and with $32 million at stake, both rappers are taking things pretty seriously.

As reported by The Blast, 50 Cent is fed up with waiting on Rick Ross in their joint lawsuit, calling on court officials to order his enemy in for a deposition. Regarding Ross’ baby mama’s sex tape leak, 50 Cent is asking the court to take action after accusing the man of ignoring his subpoenas.

Fif is currently embroiled in a legal feud against his former lawyers, accusing them of malpractice in regards to his lawsuit involving Ross’ baby mama Lastonia Leviston. She says that the rapper leaked her sex tape online and was awarded $7 million in damages because of it, but he says that his lawyers were lazy and didn’t properly check their sources to realize he was not the first to post the tape. He also believes that Rick Ross should have been deposed. 

Ross’ lawyer says they have no documents to turn over but 50 Cent begs to differ. The court paperwork reads: “Mr. Jackson believes that Mr. Ross may have documents and or information concerning the posting of the Video, so thus Mr. Jackson served a subpoena duces tecum on both Mr. Ross and Maybach, since Mr. Ross, as Maybach’s Principal, may have acted through Maybach or instructed a Maybach employee to post the Video.”

This beef continues on.

Tekashi 6ix9ine Could Have 10 Years Knocked Off Prison Sentence For Snitching: Report

As we approach the end of 2019, there are rumors that Tekashi 6ix9ine might actually end up being a free man. The rapper’s reign in the spotlight came to a complete halt just days before the release of his last album and he’s been locked up ever since. Initially refusing to cooperate with the feds, turns out he changed his tune at the beginning of the year. By September, he was the D.A.’s tool to crack down on the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods.

According to Page Six, all that snitching might end up only knocking off 10 years of his sentence after a firearms charge was dropped from his case. He was initially facing a mandatory 47-year sentence under his plea deal for the racketeering conspiracy and other charges he was facing. However, Michael Longyear, the federal prosecutor on the case, has dropped charges of possessing a machine gun in furtherance of racketeering conspiracy. 

The Government will move to dismiss Count Two at sentencing,” said Longyear. “Thus …the defendant’s mandatory minimum term of incarceration would be 37 years’ imprisonment.” Prosecutors look at 6ix9ine’s cooperation as “extraordinary” but at the end of the day, it could be up to the judge to overrule the prosecutor’s suggestion. Judge Paul Engelmayer can very well hit 6ix9ine with a sentence well below the recommended sentence which possibly means 6ix9ine walks away with time served. 

Tory Lanez Praises XXXTentacion’s Songwriting: “Long Live Jah”

In October of 2018, about four months removed from XXXTentacion’s sudden death, Tory Lanez spoke to Big Boy about his unreleased music with XXXTentacion. “The record’s a very dope record,” he had said. “But the clearance and the business side didn’t let me clear it in time. Hopefully we get to get it out soon so everybody can hear it. It just didn’t make the deadline for [Love Me Now?]” Now, over one year later, a collaboration between Tory and Triple X has surfaced, this one arriving via Bad Vibes Forever.

The track, titled “Hot Gyal,” recently landed some new visuals — you can check the clip out right here. While it’s unclear whether this is the track Tory was referring to during his Big Boy conversation, one has to wonder if it was similar in essence; after all, X’s vocals ultimately make up a small fraction of the overall track. In any case, the song marks Tory and Triple X’s first officially released collaboration, and the Canadian rapper to to Instagram to pay homage to the fallen.

“LONG LIVE JAH,” writes Tory, alongside a clip of the video. “U were so versatile and made songs with such a unique mindset.” Praise often sent in Triple X’s direction, given his willingness to explore an abundance of different genres. Have you checked out Bad Vibes Forever yet?

Fat Joe Compares Crack Era To Today’s Pill Epidemic While Remembering Juice WRLD

Fat Joe stopped by the Wendy Williams show this week to promote his new album Family Ties. While there, the Bronx emcee was asked about his thoughts on the late Juice WLRD, and whether or not he knew the 21-tear old Chicago rapper.

Despite only meeting him once, Joey said Juice was a beautiful kid and very respectful. “I only met him one time,” he said. “He was such a beautiful kid. He was so respectful when I met him, and I was just like, ‘Yo, this is a real good kid.’ So, rest in peace, Juice Wrld.”

Joey then took the opportunity to speak out on pill addiction, comparing his crack usage in the 80’s to today’s pill epidemic. In fact, Joey even says they used to smoke crack when he was younger, but they knew the danger and grossness of it. Whereas, Joey believes today’s kids think that since pills are prescription, it’s okay to use and they think they won’t get hooked.

“When we was younger, we would go smoke crack. But you knew you was copping rock cocaine, or you knew you was copping heroin – you knew it was disgusting!” Joey said. “So now, what happens with these pills, being that there prescribed, these kids don’t think they’re pill-heads or crackheads, or they’re nothing. [Nowadays they think] ‘It’s legal; it’s cool! We can do as much of it as we want.’ And that’s a big understatement because all these kids are dying.” (See below around the 9:22 mark) 

Joe continued describing the sad reality of the situation and the need to especially protect those living in poorer communities. “Everyday in the Bronx, all these kids are dying – overdosing off of pills,” he says. “We gotta try watch these kids as much as we can, ’cause it’s sad … This kid was filthy rich and died at 21 years old, on a private plane!” he concluded.

Troy Ave Is Still All About A “White Christmas”: Rapper Reflects On Getting Shot & 6ix9ine’s Trial

During a time when Drake became hip-hop’s quintessential loverboy and Kanye West went full-on bourgeoisie, Troy Ave emerged as a reminder that the streets are very much alive. He brought back that New York energy at a time when some argued it was fading out, just as trap music rose to prominence and the South began to dictate hip-hop. 

Troy Ave in 2019 is different in a lot of ways, but at the same time, there’s a lot about him that hasn’t changed. Musically, his sound is still rooted in the East Coast hip-hop tradition from the early 2000s. But more than that, he’s still the topic of discussion at barbershops, blogs and anywhere else where hip-hop conversations are prevalent, even when it doesn’t pertain to the music.

In 2016, Troy Ave was arrested in connection to the Irving Plaza shooting that resulted in the death of his bodyguard and friend, Ronald McPhatter. This has been a major obstacle in his career for a few reasons including allegations of snitching. The trial officially began earlier this year and Troy recently shared an ambiguous updated on the proceedings on Instagram. “Left Court with a small Victory 2day, We Still fighting the Big War,” he wrote.

When asked to elaborate on what the small victory was, Troy Ave was reluctant to speak on it. However, everything else was essentially fair game. Troy Ave detailed his new project, White Christmas 7 and the significance of the series. Although he isn’t necessarily a fan of the holidays, it’s a series that he knows his fans expect from him every year. And while Santa Claus might be a myth, Troy Ave is trying to keep it as real as he can. 

From 6ix9ine to Taxstone to his favorite Christmas movies of all time, over the course of our 30-minute conversation, Troy Ave certainly didn’t hold his tongue.

HNHH: How you doing, bro?

Troy Ave: I’m blessed. How you doing?

I’m good. I just wanted to kick things off by talking about the new project. At number 7, why is it important to keep the White Christmas series going? What does this mean for your career?

It’s really consistency. That’s the key to success for me. I practice what I preach and I show that to my fans and supporters because they look at me a lot of times for the key to success, and I show them, I ain’t just preachin’ it, I’m practicing it. So y’all keep it going. Plus, I almost lost my life on Christmas day. So I kind of made a pact. And I was actually listening to White Christmas when I got shot in the head. I was listening to the prayer part of the intro. So no matter what as long as I’m able I’ma release a White Christmas. I could’ve not been here and not made it anymore. And, the thing is, it makes a lot of people’s Christmas. Some people don’t get a gift, they don’t get shit for Christmas, they get this. This is my gift to everybody that supported me throughout the years. I’ma always give them this White Christmas. They can buy it or get it for free, however, you wanna get it. You could stream it or whatever, but I’m going to make sure I’m consistent and I show my gratitude, appreciation, and love for all my fans. 

Just in terms of New York hip hop, this decade alone the sound has changed so much but you’re still bringing a relatively traditional sound with your music. 

It’s really just being comfortable with yourself and sounding like where you’re from. Most people like to wave ride and sound like whatever is popular. That’s why you see a lot of people coming out there and being a flash in the pan and when that style goes away, you go away. But if you come in with an original sound, even if you’re not hitting, immediately or eventually people will pick up on your sound. As opposed to you having to pick up on someone else’s sound. 

One thing that stood out for me was the intro. Why did you get Pastor Rema Duncan to do the intro? I know he did it on White Christmas 6, what’s that relationship been like?

Well, I’m a spiritual person, and religious, but I don’t go to church or nothing like that. I always saw a lot of preachers as money-hungry or money-grubbing or crooks or whatever. But Pastor Rema, he’s the person that drove me to the hospital when I was shot in my head and shot in my back on Christmas day. I just didn’t know he was a pastor. He was just a passerby driving by in the car. It just so happened that out of everybody on the highway, he stopped for me. That was part of saving my life, and he was praying for me on the way to the hospital. Him and his sister, they were praying for me. He was talking to his sister on speakerphone like, “Yo this guy is running down a highway, I’m going to stop for him” or whatever and his sister started praying for me when I got in the car all bloody. So I want to give people that Church, but I’m giving it to them in a way that they don’t even realize they’re receiving it. We’re putting their medicine in a cup of Kool-Aid. 

Nah, definitely. How long ago was the shooting?

It was two years ago, going on three this year. 

How did that impact the holidays moving forward for you?

Maybe I appreciate it more. I move a little differently. It just impacted my whole life, not holidays. I don’t get down on the holidays. I never understand why when something tragic happens, they were down and out. I feel like you should be happy you alive and you made it. So, I don’t know if it impacted the holidays, but definitely impacted my life.

Another thing about the intro I liked is the interpolation of “Wade In The Water.”

You caught that huh?

That was the first thing I noticed off the rip. What does that song represent your life right now?

That represents my faith. That represents walking on water. I had a picture, I was shooting a video at my house and the photographer took a picture, I had a bunch of money and I threw some money in a pool. There was hundred dollar bills floating on the water and he took a picture of it. The picture was just so dope that it inspired me to make an intro. So I called up my pastor and I’m like, “Yo pastor, I got this picture and this what I’m trying to feel. If you could interpret that through a prayer for the people or something for the people, for encouragement, that would be dope” and he said I got you. He just interpreted it like, I told him I’m feeling the vibe of “you gotta have faith to get to the money” and the faith of walking on water is what Peter or one of them had. The money equals success, you gotta have faith to get to that. And that faith in yourself and work ethic, you don’t give up, you keep going, and then you’ll get to your ultimate goal. I feel like Pastor Rema, he eloquated that, whatever the word is, he did that beautifully.

Ok, word. It’s interesting because it’s Christmas and all. 

It’s captivating, right? 

Yeah. It’s bringing those elements of your faith and your own beliefs into your music in a way that is tailored to the way you live your life. 

And not doing it in a corny way where it feels like you’re handing out a pamphlet. I’m not really with that.

Nah, exactly. I think most people aren’t necessarily living their life to the bible, but I think a lot of people can relate to it in the same way.

Dope, yup. I’m glad you picked up on that bro, that makes me happy.

Nah, for sure. It came across clearly. 

When you make music, you don’t know people’s reactions, or how they’re going to take to it, or if they’re going to get it. But the fact that you brought that up is super dope. I got the reaction I wanted to get. Even when I had the singing and everything behind it for  “Wade In The Water.” It just came together real good. 

You have Project Pat on the project, and I’ve noticed since you’ve been coming up in the game, you’ve been working with a lot of OGs like Raekwon and Cam’ron, I just wanted to know why has it been necessary to have artists like that on your project?

I feel like a lot of those are artists that I’ve always admired and stuff like that. Not only that, I just like to…I’m not a clout chaser, I like to put people that fit on a record that’ll be dope. So any collab you hear me with on one of my projects is an artist that fits on it, and they’re going to sound good on it. I’m not putting you on just because you got a buzz now. A buzz today doesn’t mean a buzz tomorrow. I want my music to have substance and stand the test of time and not just be for right now. So I make sure that the feature I get are features I actually want and that’ll fit. 

Nah definitely. You brought up the word clout chasing which has obviously been a big term in hip hop for the past two years. I was just wondering what are your thoughts about the term relating to the current state of hip hop?

It’s like we live in bizarro world right now. Everything out now — nothing’s what it’s supposed to be. Nothing is what it seems. It only hurts the real artists, the genuine artists like me. Like, if everybody wearin’ fake jewelry, just to clout chase, then, damn. If I got a diamond necklace, or say I got a bust down Cuban, and my chain costs $70K or whatever. And then somebody else, they got a bigger chain that looks like it would cost double of mine but there’s is fake. So now, they get the clout because they look like they got a big diamond chain. Meanwhile, that chain costs $2,000 and it’s fake and mines really cost $70K. So, it really fucks up the game for the real ones. You can’t tell what’s what because of all these fake streams. Somebody look like they got a lot of streams but your streams is fake. My streams is real! I think it messes things up but at the end of the day, you can’t fake the money. But unfortunately, sometimes when you fake it, you get to the money.

For sure. You just dropped a single with Max B last week. I was wondering what your relationship with Max B is?

I know Max through one of my friends that’s close friends with him, too. He actually in jail right now, or he just went to jail. I had did a top 50 list of my favorite New York artists or something like that and I put Max B on there. He hit me on DM sayin’, ‘Ayo, good lookin’’ or whatever. I was like, ‘No doubt. I fuck with you.’ He sent me his manager’s number and then we went from there. And then, yeah, that’s the gist of our relationship. 

Word. You’ve been preaching this “Streets Is A Myth” concept for a while. After being at the 6ix9ine trial in support of Nuke and watching how that transpired, has that reaffirmed your position on the streets being a myth?

That was something that was super affirmed already. It ain’t nothing recently happened to reaffirm that. Like, I knew what was up with that. Even bigger than this 6ix9ine thing, it was another dude. The dude who sent [Nuke] to jail. He was supposed to be the biggest drug dealer and biggest gang member and all that. He turned around and basically lied and said that he gave him the drugs on this day, that day and a bunch of shit. I was like, “Wow. This is crazy.” And the fact that when he comes home, it’s just going to be all — it ain’t gonna be a big deal because, you know, people chase clout. So all he gotta do is come home from jail, and give a little bit of money to some people and it’s all good. You know what I’m sayin’? It ain’t no real rules or nothing. Everybody is a free for all. You can’t get caught up in the streets unless you plan on living in the streets. Successful people, in the real world, is not living in the streets and not living by the street rules. If you got an expensive house and somebody break into that shit, you not gonna walk around, lookin’ in the streets. You’re callin’ the cops and file a police report so you can get the insurance claim and get whatever was stolen back. Straight up. 

Have you ever crossed paths with 6ix9ine during his reign?

Not in person but we spoke on FaceTime, twice. And some Instagram shit, like, you know what I’m sayin’? He put something in one of my comments on his page or whatever. I’m not a super friendly person with artists but I’m a great friend at the same time, if that makes sense. So, that’s the extent of that.

I know you mentioned that nobody will really care about the snitching if 6ix9ine comes out of jail — 

Oh, I wasn’t even talkin’ about 6ix9ine. I was talkin’ about the other dude that was on there. It was a Spanish dude. Damn, I forgot his name. Damn, I forgot this guy’s name… Uh… CEO Kris! Yeah, he’s the biggest fuckin’ rat in the world, dawg. Like, that’s a fact. Or Kristian Cruz. That’s who I was talkin’ about. Kristian Cruz is who sent Nuke to jail, not 6ix9ine.

Did you have a relationship with him in anyway?

Nah, never. Nope, never met him in my life. Never knew him, Nothing. He claims they were doing criminal acts together and when you in a gang, street rules apply. Period, no matter what. And if you doing criminal acts, allegedly, with somebody in your gang, you keep your fuckin’ mouth shut. But, you know, streets is a myth, dawg.

There was that controversy from “2 Legit 2 Quit” where people said you were taking the stand. How did that affect your career, if it did in any way, and how do you think that’ll affect 6ix9ine’s career?

I don’t know. That’s a good question. I like to equate everything to money. So, if anything, it made me more famous — infamous — and that just turned into more money. So, like, from that point, to now, all that happened is my revenue increased. It just sparked debate. And the streets like Republicans and Democrats. Like this is the topic of the barbershop talk. It’s the topic on all the blogs. It’s the topic of podcasts. People are talkin’ about Troy Ave and my name buzzin’. 

So, I don’t know. My situation and 6ix9ine shit different because he was in a gang, he had dealings with his gang and over his friends and Blood members and he took the stand against ‘em. And that’s fucked up for what it is. But, my situation is, an enemy who tried to kill me, who put everything on social media and then he tried to frame me for the murder of my best friend. And then went and wrote a letter to the judge which is the equivalent to taking the stand and tried to get me indicted on some other crimes and then I’m sayin’, “Whoa! That’s not me. That’s not my gun.” It’s a big difference than his. It’s only in compared because we in the hip-hop world.

You’re talking about Taxstone?

Yup. I think it’s a lot of hypocrisy with it because in one breath, people will say — well, most sane people with any type of sense would be like, “Hell no. You don’t go to jail for your enemy.” For your friends, that’s different. For any enemy, once they take their gloves off, the gloves is off. The hypocrisy in it is that people will tell you or some people will say, “You should go to jail for him. You should take the charges and then fight it. That’s the code of the streets.” Not even fight it — you don’t say, “That’s not my gun.” Then the D.A. will say, “Who’s gun is it?” Then you gonna say, “I don’t know who’s gun it is.” But that’s crazy. They don’t want you to do that, because you should go down for that but in the same breath, they wouldn’t be willing to go down. I look at it like, alright, if you say that this person should go down for a charge of somebody that you support but why don’t you just kill that person and then you go down for that charge. It’s the same charge! Murder is murder, you both go to jail. So if you think this person should go to jail for an enemy, or because it’s somebody that you love, then why don’t you say, “You know what? I’m going to kill that person, and then I’mma murder them, and then my friend will get set free and then I’ll just go to jail for them.” If you so passionate about it one way, you gotta be passionate about the other, if you real. Unless you fake. Unless you’re clout chasing. And that’s the case in most instances.

There’s an IG post from a few days ago where you’re pretty much talking about real estate, ownership, and more importantly, making sure the next generation of kids are straight. I was wondering why that message is important for you to get across.

I think it’s important, if you consider yourself real, because so many people that consider themselves real, they got kids and they kids ain’t gettin’ taken care of. Or they make up excuses about why they kids ain’t taken care of. Or they die and they leave a burden for their family members — they leave no legacy. They leave nothing…  You need to [buy] a home, you need to make sure your mama’s not livin’ in the same bum ass that you grew up in, you know what I’m sayin’? You need to do better for your people and for yourself and bein’ a boss is real. That’s what’s being real. You can’t talk about being real and talk all this tough sh*t and get up and punch a clock. ‘Cause at any time, your boss could get mad and say, ‘Hey, fuck you. Kiss my ass!’ And you just gotta keep your mouth shut if you want to keep your job. I think, like, for me, not to anybody else who livin’ in bizarro world like I said, it’s a whole different world. 

For me, I think things like that are real. I think the person who holds down a job and keep doing their thing is real. Not the person that’s running in the streets and getting money for a short period of time and then when you get locked up, you become a burden to your family.

Kevin Gates recently praised you on Instagram. I wanted to know what your relationship with Gates is like.

Gates? Gates is my dawg! We met a long time ago at Sirius XM Radio. He was doing an interview, I was comin’ up to do an interview. I seen this guy with a bowtie on, I said, ‘Why does this guy have a bowtie on?’ Like, the fuck’s this guy doing with a bowtie on? But, you know, we kept it cool. I’m not one of those people that judge people or whatever. I was passin’ by and I was like props and that’s when we crossed paths. And then, later on, like two [or] three years later, we end up gettin’ the [XXL] Freshman cover together. Shit, it might’ve been a year later. And we end up being on the [XXL] Freshman cover together, which is crazy. So that happened, we had formed a relationship from then. He got a strong faith in God, too. So, you know, Kevin Gates is a dope person, you know what I’m sayin’? His new album doin’ crazy. I think he’s a dope person and in a lot of ways, we alike. He don’t really have no features on his album, either.

Just back to the album real quick. On “Clown Cake Interlude,” you say that your kids don’t believe in Santa Claus. Will you ever launch “Santa Claus Is A Myth” campaign?

Santa Claus? Nah, nah, I try not to impose my thoughts on other people, you know what I’m sayin’? Like even with religion, I feel like we don’t want to impose our stuff. If we can put it out and people gravitate towards it will feel that way no matter what, then that’s cool. I don’t want to ruin that for other people. I know that because little kids learn that. I feel like I have an obligation as a man and as an artist to be responsible with what I’m doin’, you know? I don’t want to ruin that for any other parent that’s lettin’ their kids know Santa Claus is real or whatever.

I think everybody already knows that Santa Claus is a myth. And if Santa Claus isn’t a myth, I need my fuckin’ money back because I’ve spent a lot of cash on Christmas. I’mma forward my American Express bill to the North Pole, you know what I’m sayin’?

So, the last question. I know you’re not a fan of Christmas but you seem to be a big fan of movies. What are your top five Christmas movies of all time?

This Christmas. It’s like, it has Chris Brown in it and Gabrielle Union, or something like that. It had a bunch of people. I think it’s called This Christmas. I’m not sure. But, that one. Home Alone. Damn, I missed that other Christmas movie. Umm… The one with where they’re like, “You’re going to shoot your eye out!” And the kid got his tongue stuck to the pole. A Christmas Story, I think. A couple of other ones, I don’t know. If you shot some names off, I’d probably remember them. I don’t know right now. 

Quavo Benches Heavy Weights While Smoking A Blunt: Watch

Clearly, Quavo of the Migos has been taking his workouts seriously. Currently on the set of his music video for “That’s Tuff” with Rich The Kid, the rapper decided to get some burn in between takes. The man set himself up at the bench press, added a disgusting amount of weight to the barbell and went ahead to show off his muscles. He managed to repeat countless reps with the plates weighing him down, creating a serious obstacle for the rapper. To top it all off, he completed this round with a blunt in his mouth, smoking away on some Sativa to get him up for the workout.

Whatever Quavo is smoking, we want some of that. There must be some performance enhancement drug mixed into his weed because no regular human would be able to lift this much with such ease. Uploading the video to social media, a number of his peers called him out for capping, claiming that the weights are props and that the barbell probably weighs, like, a pound. Jacquees, Pop Smoke, French Montana, Trouble, and others were all unsure of how Quavo pulled off this incredible feat of strength, leaving comments in his inbox.

As you will surely be able to tell, Quavo did not actually complete this drill with real weight and, if we’re mistaken in assuming that, we apologize to the auto-tuned Migos member. However, it’s pretty safe to say that this was just a set-up for some music video promotion.

French Montana Reveals Akon Finessed Him With A Fake Watch

Akon is still out here releasing several albums per year and somehow, he’s also finding time to allegedly build his own city. This man is all over the place but, apparently, he still can’t tell the difference between real and fake jewelry. French Montana is fresh off the release of his self-titled album Montanarecovering from a terrifying health scare and speaking to DJ Akademiks about his experience in the intensive care unit. During his hourlong chat with the YouTube personality, the rapper told a story about his friend Akon, noting that he once received some fake goods from the multi-millionaire, never hearing back about a replacement.

We all know that French Montana loves to rock his iced-out chains, bracelets, watches and rings. If it’s not bust-down, he has no interest in wearing it. When Akon gifted the recording artist an expensive Hublot timepiece, Montana brought it to his jeweler to get the diamonds switched out, making it a little more driptacular. It turns out he had gotten finessed.

“It wasn’t iced out and you know I like shit with diamonds on it so I just took it to my jeweler and was like ‘yo, can you switch this for me? Akon gave it to me for my birthday.’ He looked at me and was like ‘Whatchu mean? Akon did not give you this, my guy.’ So I’m like, yo, either my jeweler is playing with me or Akon made a mistake.”

He ended up calling Akon to see what happened and the man apparently had no clue it wasn’t authentic. French Montana still hasn’t heard back about a replacement to this day. Watch the full interview below.

CJ McCollum Questions Reporter’s Sanity Over Tanking Question

CJ McCollum is the second half of the Portland Trail Blazers dynamic duo which includes the likes of Damian Lillard. Last season, the Trail Blazers were quite good and even made it all the way to the Western Conference Finals where they were eventually swept by the likes of the Golden State Warriors. Coming into the 2019-2020 campaign, there were high hopes for the Blazers as some felt like they could win a wide-open Conference.

So far, the Blazers have been having an off-year and can’t seem to catch a break. With a record of 10-16, the Blazers are 11th in the Western Conference and will need a drastic shift in their play if they want any chance at making it to the postseason. According to Jason Quick of The Athletic, McCollum was recently asked about whether the team should tank or not and he had a pretty firm answer.

Per The Athletic:

““You crazy,” McCollum said with a disgusted chuckle as he collected the final items from his locker and left. “You have a good one.”

Even bringing up the lottery is blasphemy to McCollum and Damian Lillard, players who have led Portland’s charge to six consecutive playoff appearances while forming a culture that is rooted in extra work, belief in the system, and trusting one another on the court and in the locker room.”

For now, it really seems as though the Blazers have no plans to call their season a wrap just yet which should be good news for their fans. You always want to see your team put up a fight which is exactly what the Blazers are preparing to do. 

Meek Mill Has No Clue Why He Started Drake Beef, Reveals He Used To Abuse Percocet

Meek Mill is a true champion. If he hadn’t released a good album last year, his career very well may have been over. After his release from prison, the Philadelphia rapper had a few options. He could have laid low and allowed all the previous negativity to ruin his mental health or he could brush it all off, channel that energy into a dope project and get back on everybody’s good side. Championships saw him choose the latter. The Grammy Award nominee sat down with Charlamagne Tha God this week to discuss how he won, speaking on some of the hot topics attached to his personal and professional life.

Marketed as a Conversation Between Champions, Charlamagne Tha God led an interview with Meek Mill, asking the star about all that’s happened in the last few years. During their sit-down chat, the beef between himself and Drake was mentioned and Mill explained that he’s genuinely unsure of why he decided to activate his Twitter fingers. Noting that it probably wasn’t the smartest decision he’s ever made, the recording artist did dispell one rumor that it all had to do with Nicki Minaj. Previously, it had been suggested that a shopping trip where Meek’s credit card got declined started off the whole thing. According to Meek though, that wasn’t the case.

Elsewhere in the chat, Meek speaks about his experience with drugs, revealing that he used to take up to ten Percocet pills a day. These days, he’s slowing down on everything, even laying off weed because he just doesn’t want to be addicted to anything.

Jordan Clarkson Channels Michael Jordan With Outrageous Pre-Game Outfit

NBA pre-game entrances have turned into a runway show in recent years, as each and every team has cameras stationed in the tunnel to see what the superstars are wearing before they take the court. From the cozy to the absurd, the fit check has become as much a part of the pre-game routine as stretching and layup lines.

On Thursday night, there was one man that stole the show as he made his way to the arena. Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Jordan Clarkson rolled up in some JNCO-esque jeans that were pulled right from the Michael Jordan catalog. Clarkson paired up his outrageously baggy jeans with a well-fitting blazer and you can imagine the types of comments floating around social media.

Despite his highly questionable pre-game attire, Clarkson had himself a night on Thursday, pouring in 25 points off the bench in his 31 minutes of action as the Cavs picked up a 117-109 overtime victory in San Antonio.

Up next for the Cavs (6-19) are a pair of road games, first in Milwaukee against the red hot Bucks on Saturday night, followed by a Monday night matchup against the Toronto Raptors. Stay tuned to see what Michael Jordan Clarkson does for an encore.
