Kanye West and Jay Z Reportedly Trying to End Their Feud

TMZ is reporting that Kanye West and Jay Z are making strides towards ending their feud. It all reportedly started when Kanye reached out to Jay and requested a face-to-face to settle their differences. No word yet on whether Hov has agreed to the meeting. 

Their feud heightened after Jay Z took some not so subtle shots at Kanye on “Kill Jay Z” after 'Ye brought up Beyoncé and Blue Ivy during a rant at the Sacramento stop of his Saint Pablo Tour in November. In his interview on the Rap Radar podcast, Jay explained what led him to putting his beef with his little brother out in the open. “You can't bring my kids, my wife into it,” he said. “Kanye's my little brother…But you brought my family into it, that's a problem.” 

Jay Z also left the door open for reconciliation, admitting that they have always had their fair share of disagreements, but they always find a way to get back on good terms. “You know it’s a problem because me and him would have been talked about it, been resolved our issues,” he said. “And he knows he crossed the line, he knows. And I know he knows. Because we’ve never let this much space go between one of our disagreements and we’ve had many. It's a part of who we are… He’s an honest person and he’s wrong a lot of times.”

According to TMZ, their feud has nothing to do with Kanye's financial dispute with Jay Z. That is reportedly “being hashed out.”

3 NFL Storylines to Look Out for This Season

The 2016-17 NFL season featured one of the most exciting endings in NFL history. After falling behind 28-3 to the Falcons in the third quarter of Super Bowl 51, the Patriots came storming back to win 34-28 in overtime in improbable fashion. It helped Tom Brady earn his fifth Super Bowl victory, and it solidified the Patriots as the cream of the crop in the NFL. It also robbed Matt Ryan and the Falcons of the chance to win their first Super Bowl ever.

It’s going to be tough for the NFL to top that ending this season, but that doesn’t mean that they aren’t going to try. On Thursday, Sept. 7, the Patriots will host the Chiefs on the NFL’s opening night and jump start what should be another exciting season for NFL fans. As we prepare to dive headfirst into NFL action, we decided to step back for a moment and assess what should be the biggest stories heading into the new NFL year. Here are the three storylines to look out for this season if you are an NFL fan.

Can anyone beat the Patriots?

The Patriots may have won the Super Bowl in February, but that didn’t stop them from making a few major moves during the offseason to get even better than they already were. They worked out a trade with the Saints that netted them speedy wide receiver Brandin Cooks, and they also signed former Bills cornerback Stephon Gilmore to a deal in free agency. Additionally, they’ll get Rob Gronkowski back after he sat the end of last season with a back injury.

The Patriots did suffer a huge setback during the preseason when wide receiver Julian Edelman went down with a season-ending ACL injury. But even without Edelman in the lineup, New England is still the team to beat in the AFC this season. They should be able to cruise to the top of the AFC East and clinch a playoff berth early, and once they’re there, they’ll likely be favored to win all of their postseason games as they head towards another Super Bowl. The Raiders, Steelers, and potentially even the Broncos, Titans, and Ravens could present problems for the Patriots. But they will once again be the team to beat.

Will the Falcons be able to bounce back from their devastating Super Bowl loss?

Historically, teams that lose in the Super Bowl struggle during the following season. Cam Newton and the Panthers made a trip to Super Bowl 50 in February 2016, but after losing to the Broncos, they went just 6-10 last season and finished at the bottom of the AFC South while their division rivals, the Falcons, went to the Super Bowl.

This season, it will be the Falcons trying to overcome a Super Bowl hangover—and it’s not going to be easy for them to do. Unlike the Panthers, the Falcons probably should have won the Super Bowl if not for a big blown lead during the second half of the game. So they’re going to have to shake off whatever negative feelings they have heading into the season and find a way to put Super Bowl LI in the past.

The good news for the Falcons is that they’ve got all of their major weapons back this year. Matt Ryan will still be lining up under center and playing quarterback. Julio Jones will still be presenting matchup nightmares for opposing cornerbacks at the wide receiver position. And Devonta Freeman, who signed a contract in August making him the highest-paid running back in the NFL, will still be running all over the field for the Falcons. Plus, Atlanta will begin playing at their brand-new Mercedes-Benz Stadium, which should take their minds off what happened in the Super Bowl.

But still, it’s hard to imagine them not thinking about the Super Bowl loss from time to time, and it could impact them this season. And if they struggle because of it, could you even blame them?

Which rookie quarterback will prove to be the best of the bunch?

There are at least four rookie quarterbacks that could see some playing time this season. DeShone Kizer has already been named the starting QB for the Browns after beating out Brock Osweiler in training camp. But Chicago Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky, who was taken No. 2 overall in the 2017 NFL Draft, Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson, and Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes could play in regular-season games as well.

None of the four are expected to have the kind of impact that then-rookie Dak Prescott had for the Cowboys last season. But then again, no one saw Prescott having the impact he did, so who knows? Maybe Kizer will end up leading the Browns to a 13-3 record and a playoff berth just like Prescott did for Dallas last season!

Er, or maybe not. But chances are, at least one of these rookie QBs is going to make his team’s fan base very happy this season. Which one ultimately has the most success is anyone’s guess, but it’ll be fun to see how productive they are when they finally take the field for their respective teams.

The Internet Is Loving Blue Ivy’s Bars on “Blue’s Freestyle”

Of course Jay Z and Beyoncé’s first born has impressive flow.

On Thursday night, Jay released three bonus tracks for his wildly successful album 4:44. The additions were “Adnis,” “MaNyfaCedGod” with James Blake, as well as “Blue's Freestyle / We Family.” The last of these predictably featured the rapper’s 5-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy; however, no one was expecting just how incredible her cameo would be.

The track opens with the child spitting a 40-second rap that ends with a series of “boom shakalaka”s. Some of the words are admittedly hard to make out, but there’s no denying that Blue’s delivery is solid. 

The internet loved every single second of it. 

All of the bonus tracks can be found on the internet on physical copies of 4:44, which you can now cop at Best Buy if you want a free six-month trial of Tidal.

Fan Theory Emerges on Gender of Beyonce’s Twins

I don't know if I'm thrown on these Beyoncé rumor posts because I'm such a crack internets detective or because I'm old and gullible, but this is the first time I've been tasked to take on some internets rumor surrounding Beyoncé's pregnancy since we debunked that Twitter account that “predicted” her pregnancy. And while I don't claim to know the sex of her unborn children, I'm pretty sure she isn't giving birth to grown-ass Tracy Morgan and Kenan Thompson.

Anyways, the latest in internets shenanigans boils down to a pair of earrings. Yup, you read that correctly. On her website, Bey posted a number of photos featuring a fierce all-black outfit she was rocking to Mr. Lawson's birthday. In it, she happened to be rocking the same earrings she wore in the video for I am… Sasha Fierce's “If I Were a Boy.”

Yup, you guessed it, the internet put two and two together and got “male.” Well, males. Plural. Because two babies.

Wake up, sheeple. Duh.

Anyways, I like this theory. I don't wholeheartedly subscribe to it, but I like this theory. Instead of some alien sh*t or Illuminati sh*t, people took the title of a song from almost a decade ago and applied it to current events. That's a keen eye. Then again, as Paper pointed out, mad people thought the blue leggings Bey wore during a Katie Couric interview while she was pregnant with Blue Ivy symbolized she was having a boy. It was still a clue (because Bey is obviously the best), but people got the wrong information from it.

Now I know what you're wondering: “khal, what is Beyoncé having then?” Well, I'm not at liberty to say. One night, while staring at the bottom of a bottle of Henny, I got a sign about the sex of Bey and Hov's unborn twins, but was immediately threatened with bodily harm if I revealed said secrets. You'll just have to wait for the day when those two bundles of joy are good and damn ready to make their presence known to the world. But please, keep guessing. I love a good theory.

Beyoncé Surprises an L.A. Dance Troupe and They Lose It

When we normally talk Beyoncé and surprises, they are geared more towards her album releases; both 2013's Beyoncé and 2016's Lemonade were released to little or no build-up. For her most recent surprise, Beyoncé didn't drop any new anthems; she dropped in on the Alvin Ailey Dance Theater.

For those who were unaware, the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater was founded in 1958 by legendary choreographer and activist Alvin Ailey. This past Saturday, Beyoncé and her mother Tina Knowles caught one of their shows at the L.A. Music Center with Tina's Angels, which is a group of young women that Knowles is mentoring.

After the matinee performance, Tina brought Beyoncé and her Angels backstage to greet the dancers, and from the clips that hit Instagram, this looks like a momentous occasion for everyone involved.

You can only imagine how it must feel to have someone like Beyoncé calling you “incredible” must be for the soul.
