Lil Baby Formally Announces “My Turn” Album And New Mixtape

Lil Baby is destined to be the breakout Hip-Hop sensation in 2020 alongside his fellow Quality Control family. He relaxed in 2019 touring and collecting the bag in city after city all while warning people he’d turn up at the end of the year leading into 2020. He recently released his new song “Whoa” which he followed up with the video just days later. On Youtube alone, the video has garnered 45 million plays. HipHop-N-More reports his new album “My Turn” will arrive in just under 4 weeks which would be some time in January. A(FYI, there is a rumored surprise mega releases slated for December 20th)

With the song going upwards, the Atlanta rapper has revealed plans for the release of his new album which is titled My Turn. Baby unveiled the title on his Twitter and also went live on Instagram to further speak on it. He told fans that DaBaby, Gunna, Young Thug and Moneybagg Yo will be featured on the project.

If that wasn’t enough with his Da Baby assisted single “Baby” reached #1 on radio and he’s got much more street music on the way thanks to his “Lamborghini Boys” mixtape.

“Lamborghini Boys” will more than likely be with his close friend Gunna. Safe to say 2020 is the year of the Baby. Delays and push backs happen but hopefully, he’s still able to deliver while traveling on the road.

MLB Announces It Will No Longer Test For Marijuana, Only Cocaine & Opioids

MLB and the MLB Players Association recently announced SURPRISING changes to the “Joint Drug Program.” Most notably, testing for opioids usage (Xanax, Percocet, Crystal Meth) is now in place, and marijuana has been removed from the league’s list of banned substances for minor-league players. Players on the 40-man roster are not tested for marijuana, but non-40-man roster minor leaguers have been, and several have suspended for marijuana use each season. For those who are unaware, the plant stays in your system and fat cells for up to a month, or sometimes longer. For the 2019 season were 13 such suspensions.

The MLB seems to be more laid back than any other sports organization. For example with the NBA even a sports drink could throw off your drug testing and have you suspended in no time. Hopefully, the tennis world will loosen up with their program as well, just this year Serena Williams expressed how she was unfairly drug tested several times (and passed) while her #1 hater failed a drug test right before the Australian Open.

All feature sports leagues should adjust and take after the MLB.

B-Day Bag Secured: Cardi B’s Birthday Gift For Offset Was Cash…LOTS Of Cash

Cardi B’s Birthday Gift For Offset Was Cash…LOTS Of Cash

What do you get the man who has everything? Some money, apparently.

Cardi B and Offset are out here enjoying life to the fullest, and when it comes to special occasions, they definitely know how to do it right. The married couple celebrated The Migos member’s birthday this weekend by doing what they do best; spending the night throwing a whole lotta money–and luckily for Offset, he had some extra cash on hand thanks to his wifey’s thoughtful gift.

Since Belcalis didn’t know what she should give her husband for his 28th trip around the sun, she opted for something simple: $500,000 cash. She posted a video of her gifting Set with the cash onto her Instagram page, so we all get to see his reaction when the rapper presents him with the huge wads of money.

“Little something something for the Birthday boy @offsetyrn,” she wrote underneath the video.

“So, you got every car, you got every jewelry, you got everything, every shoe, what else can I get someone that got everything,” Cardi questioned before gesturing toward the fridge, which housed all of the precious cargo. “That’s $500,000. You can buy a car, you can buy more clothes, you can buy more jewelry, you can buy me more Birkin bags.”

Kinda makes you wonder what Cardi will get Offset once Christmas rolls around in 2 weeks, but we’ve got a feeling the hubby would probably be fine with some more cash.

After the gift exchange, the married couple went out on the town in Los Angeles to celebrate his birthday in a big way. All that cash ended up coming in handy when the whole crew made their way to HD Buttercup strip club for the Set Gala: Funhouse Edition, where Cardi, Offset, Quavo, and more posted videos of the incessant money throwing. To make things even more exciting, attendees also grubbed on some Popeyes chicken sandwiches from the Migos menu throughout the night.

Happy birthday, Offset!

DaBaby Hooks A Lucky Fan Up With Concert Tickets After Giddy Gas Station Meeting

It doesn’t matter who your favorite rapper is, there’s no chance he’s as in tune with his fans as DaBaby is with his. The North Carolina rapper has been caught once again going above and beyond for his supporters, and this time, it all went down at a gas station.

According to reports from TMZ, a fan by the name of Alexandria Coleman was lucky enough to get some free concert tickets from DaBaby after a chance encounter inside of a convenience store. The fan tells the publication that she was supposed to catch the rapper’s Washington D.C. concert last weekend, but because the “Suge” rapper ended up making his ‘Saturday Night Live‘ debut, Saturday’s concert ended up getting pushed to Sunday night, instead.

As for Alexandria, once the concert got pushed to the next day, it sold out before she was able to grab any tickets. Following her failed attempt at seeing DaBaby in concert, she began her trek driving back from Washington D.C. to Albany, New York–but in a crazy stroke of luck, she actually ended up running into DaBaby at a gas station.

Once the rapper and his team spotted the excited fan, they decided they definitely needed to catch the whole thing on camera. Once DaBaby and Alexandria finally came face-to-face in the aisle of the store the North Carolina native ended up jumping up into Coleman’s arms and staying cradled up in there for quite a while.

After their meeting, DaBaby’s team reportedly promised to get Alexandria and her friends into the sold-out concert–and on Sunday night, the three of them ended up getting the absolute best seats in the house.

This is far from the first time DaBaby has gone above and beyond for his fans. As we’ve previously reported, he recently performed via Facetime after experiencing plane trouble and missing a show in his hometown. You gotta love it.

Mo’ Money: Tyler, The Creator’s Iced Out IGOR Chain Reportedly Costs Almost $300K

Tyler, The Creator’s Iced Out IGOR Chain Reportedly Costs Almost $300K

Tyler, The Creator isn’t exactly known for being one of the more flashy rappers in the game, but that doesn’t mean he still can’t enjoy a nice piece of jewelry every now and then.

His latest album, IGOR, really seems to be one of his proudest projects to date and an era that he wants to seriously soak up–and we don’t blame him. The blond bowl-cut wig has quickly become synonymous with the California native, and with this new chain, it’s only going to have a stronger association with Tyler and his brand.

On Tuesday night, famous jeweler Ben Baller took to Instagram to show off an absolutely incredible chain that he custom-designed for Tyler, the Creator. As you could probably guess, the piece was made to resemble the rapper’s alter-ego IGOR, boasting that same blond wig and sunglasses that the Odd Future founder is known to rock at his shows.

To make things even more special, Ben makes a point of drawing attention to the fact that he has to be really good friends with somebody in order to say yes to making them a custom piece.

“You can’t just book me to make you a piece. Out of 100 people who ask, I say NO 100 times. I have to super f*** with you to get down on a piece in this day. T has never got a piece from anyone else.” Baller captioned a series of photos and a video of the IGOR chain.

“This is my last piece of 2019. My last piece of this decade. So I knew I had to f***ing crush it. I’m not even gonna get into specifics. Just know it’s heavy as f***. Made out of 18K gold and has a lot of cognac, chocolate, blue, black and white diamonds.”

Today felt like a good day to shut down the internet. FYI: You can’t just book me to make you a piece. Out of 100 people who ask, I say NO 100 times. I have to super fuck with you to get down on a piece in this day. T has never got a piece from anyone else. This is my last piece of 2019. My last piece of this decade. So I knew I had to fucking crush it. I’m not even gonna get into specifics. Just know it’s heavy as fuck. Made out of 18K gold and has a lot of cognac, chocolate, blue, black and white diamonds. The gradient levels of brown to match T’s skin tone and especially when different shades of light hit it? 🤧. The overall aesthetic and how you can kinda see the curvature of the nose but also can’t see it. This is why I can’t just make that Mickey Mouse shit you see all over Instagram. A shout out will not get you a better price. It will get you blocked from ever getting work from me. Thank you T for always trusting me. Even though I hate your guts in person, but I also LOVE YOU! I have seen you grow into something insane. Congrats on all your success. You deserve it 100% Luck had nothing to do with where I am today, this was all meant to be. #IGOR #BenBallerDidTheChain #IFANDCO

According to reports from TMZ, the chain costs a whopping $275,000! That’s some serious real estate to have hanging around your neck.

The Throne: Kanye West, Jay-Z/Beyonce Top Forbes Highest Earning Musicians 2019

Kanye West & Jay-Z Top Forbes Highest Earning Musicians Of 2019

As the year comes to a close all the record labels and accountants are getting ready to tally the numbers of your favorite celebrities for 2019. When it comes to the top earners the list are pretty much already determined with the highest grossing prospects light years ahead of the competition. Thanks to Forbes we now have the top earning musicians for 2019. Not to be confused with the wealthiest list this list is consisted of income earned within the calendar year of 2019. Here are a few of our favorites and their rank on the list and the amazing moves they made to land on the list. You can find the full list here via Forbes.

#2 Kanye West

Kanye West came in number 2 on the list only being beaten out by the professional victim herself Taylor Swift who beat Ye only by $35 Million mainly due to her touring. Kanye West however only had one show this year being his Sunday Service at Coachella and a few select Sunday Services which were mainly free or around $5-$20. The majority of Kanye West millions came from the massive success of his partnership with ADIDAS. The Yeezy brand continues to skyrocket and show unseen growth in the sneaker space since Michael Jordan and his ‘Jordan Brand’. Unlike Michael, Kanye West owns 100% of the Yeezy brand and gets a higher royalty rate from ever sale than Jordan. Kanye also saw massive dollars hit his bank account from his merch he sells on KanyeWest.com. People were outraged at his Holy Spirit merch during his Coachella performance but it seems the ones not outraged and willing to buy were more than it seems. Ye also dropped his “Jesus Is King‘ album which debuted #1 on Billboard. Forbes formally announced Kanye West had joined the billionaire club earlier this year when the Yeezy brand was estimated to pass almost $2 billion dollars in sales with an evaluation over $1 Billion dollars. West topping the list comes as no surprise as he recently purchased a small city in Cody, Wyoming and weeks later purchased a second city where he hopes to expand his Yeezy empire.

#6(tie) Jay-Z & Beyonce

Jay-Z & Beyonce have never been strangers to this list. They have always appeared on the list always making sure to bring in their coins no matter what. Beyonce dominated the top of the year with the release of her “Homecoming” Netflix documentary. Her Netflix deal alone is rumored to have earned her north of $60 million dollars. Beyonce also joined Kanye West in becoming apart of the Adidas family. Adidas will also be the new home of her successful clothing brand Ivy Park. Hov has continued to dominate with his Roc Nation venture adding more successful acts to its roaster every year. This year alone he added Meek Mill, Lil Uzi Vert, Griselda, Tinashe, Jim Jones and others. Most notably this year Roc Nation struck a long term partnership with the NFL due to its successful operation of Roc Nations sports management division. His Tidal music streaming service is steadily showing user/subscriber growth while the competition is at a stand still. The ‘Made In America’ festival went on without any issues even after the city tried to take away its location which they ultimately came to an agreement on to keep it where its historically been held. Last but not least the Dusse is still moving and the ACE of spades is still being poured. Hov even brought the formerly known “Hennypalooza” under his wing and revamped it with the name “Dussepalooza”.

#8 Drake

Drake continues to be the top guy in the rap game who just can’t be stopped. In 2019 alone Billboard estimated Drake raked in $43,953,381 off touring alone. The most impressive part is Drake did that off 24 shows. Drake also struck a very lucrative deal with XS night club in Las Vegas for millions to perform 12 times with one being New Years Eve. Drake also struck a deal with the XS parent hotel The Wynn that opened his own OVO brand store in the hotel. Drake also saw returns from his whiskey partnership in ‘Virgina Black’. His ‘October Very Own’ clothing line is still bringing in millions and selling out without much promotion. Drake recently announced his new venture in Canada which sees him joining the marijuana space up north. Drake also saw the fruits of his labor/investments on buying British show “Top Boy” which he struck a deal with Netflix and released the latest season on their platform for a nice payday. Even in a year where he didn’t release an album Drake still earned 4.7 billion streams on Spotify alone. Each year Drake brings in millions from his Apple radio show but he announced earlier this year he has a new deal with Sirus/XM to bring the show to their platform. Drake also still has his very lucrative Nike deal which he renewed last year amid a botched switch to Adidas.

#9 Diddy

Diddy isn’t a stranger to this list either. His earnings are more cut & dry than the other because most of his earnings are from self owned business’ and investments that pay him well each and every year. His Revolt TV is still showing growth and even expanded its ‘Revolt Conference’ hosting one in LA & another in ATL in addition to the original conference that he’s had for years. Ciroc is still booming adding new flavors to spike growth throughout the year. Lets not forget his historic back catalog of music that produces millions in revenue each and every year.

Outside the top 10 hiphop & R&B still represented with Rihanna bringing in $62 Million, Travis Scott a new face to the list comes in at #12 with an impressive $58 Million, and Eminem landed at #19 with $50 million,

Safe to say with hiphop becoming the #1 genre in the world its padding the pockets of some of our favs very nicely !

Redemption: 10k Projects CEO Explains Why He Gave Tekashi 69 A $10M Deal

10k Projects CEO Explains Why He Gave Tekashi 69 $10M Deal

While Tekashi 69 sits behind bars in upstate New York the world around him is tirelessly trying to get him back on the streets again. We all know it’s a certain mix of people who can’t wait to catch him on the streets to due him harm. However, the majority of people invested in his freedom are ready to finish business they started with him. Tekashi has been locked up for almost exactly a year for federal firearms and racketeering charges. This week news broke that the prosecutors and all parties involved have approved granting a recommendation for reduced to no time at all, for time served for his participation. Shortly after his infamous testimony, news spread that he had inked a deal from behind bars with his former label 10k projects reportedly worth $10 million.

Many didn’t understand how or why this would happen but it seems now we have better insight into this business deal and decision. In an exclusive interview with Variety Elliott Grange, son of famed UMG CEO Lucian Grainge referred to the business deal, not as a second chance but an “opportunity”.

“Tekashi knows how to get under people’s skin,” Grainge said in the interview. “He is an addictive, charismatic human being—and very intelligent, but he made some unfortunate choices in regard to the people he surrounded himself with. Knowing him like I do, since he was [called] Daniel Hernandez, I wouldn’t be doing a good job as a human, let alone a label head, if I didn’t try to help him. I’m not giving 6ix9ine a second chance, just an opportunity. The rest is up to him. The artist himself has to make those choices.”

As you can assume this is not only a big opportunity for Tekashi but also for the entire staff of 10k projects. Hate him or love him the kid is comical and can sell records and get the Internet attention.

Tekashi will reappear in court on December 18th and could be free that day as well. We’ll keep you updated on how this all plays out.

Jay-Z Puts His Discography Back On Spotify In Honor Of His 50th Birthday

Jay-Z has been one of the key players in the war between streaming services. Hov is the owner of Swedish based streaming service TIDAL.and since its inception people have doubted his plans with the streaming service but Tidal is here to stay. It started with a star-studded reveal of musicians that looked promising and so far has delivered far more than was offered at first. Since he took ownership of Tidal the service is exclusively streamed several music festivals (including his own ‘Made In America‘), Kanye West fashion shows and Opera’s, fan curated show such as Jay-Z and his B-side shows, Podcast, and offered a slew of custom playlist thanks to its head of content Elliot Wilson. Elliott also exclusively streams his #CRWN interview series and Rap Radar Podcast with Tidal. Not to be left out perhaps the best feature of Tidal to any die-hard Jay-z fan is the fact its the only place to stream his entire catalog. Not only that but you can stream it in High Definition audio along with any other album of your choosing. Safe to say Tidal has gone above and beyond to be a bang for your buck and the go-to choice of streaming service for many music consumers.

Now it seems Jay is letting other streaming services join in on the fun of streaming his music for his 50th birthday. Today marks Hov’s 50th and Spotify users were stunned to see his discography back on the streaming service just in time to celebrate #HovDay. Hov has never gone on record to say other services will never have his music but let’s face it if you’re an owner of a streaming service you’ve got to use all your resources to get consumer loyalty. Hov has added his music to Apple Music here and there by surprise but only for a limited time.

Now Spotify users are expressing their gratitude to Hov but as always it’s probably for a limited time. You can join the Twitter thanks by tweeting Hov’s long-time rumored burner account @AintNoJigga and by using the official 50th bday hashtag #1TakeHov to talk your favorite Hov bars. If we’re lucky Hov will bless us with one of his direct tweets from the account thanking us directly while still claiming it’s not him.

If you’re a Jay Z fanatic head over to Spotify and enjoy it while it lasts!
