Offset Proposed to Cardi B and She Said Yes

Offset has proposed to Cardi B. Offset asked the very large question on bended knee (sort of, it was more of a Crouching Tiger Hidden Migos thing) at Power 99's Powerhouse in Philadelphia. The two have been dating since the top of the year. Watch the cuteness of the proposal and Cardi's ecstatic reaction below.

#OFFSET JUST PROPOSED IM SCREAMING 😩😨😨❤️ – @offsetyrn @iamcardib

A post shared by #1 Offset ❤️ Cardi B Fanpage (@bardiset.page) on Oct 27, 2017 at 8:18pm PDT

Cardi took to Instagram to express her love for Offset following the proposal. 

People responded to the beautiful news on the very popular website Twitter.com. 

Rumors that the couple got engaged started to circulate not too long back. It began after the two went jewelry shopping in Atlanta back on August 22. 

An article from Real Cool Nation titled “Exclusive: Cardi B Just Got Engaged To Migos Rapper Offset — He Proposed Last Night!” was published and added fuel to the fire. The article turned out not to be true, well, not until now at least. 

Cardi is featured on Migos' new Culture 2 single “MotorSport” featuring Nicki Minaj. The track came out just hours prior to the proposal. Both Offset and Cardi B's 2017, even not taking into account this whole engagement​ business, has been spectacular. 

Cardi's summer anthem “Bodak Yellow” clenched the number one spot on the Billboard Hot 100 while Offset's group Migos dropped their second studio album Culture. The album debuted at the number one spot on the Billboard 200 and reached platinum status back in July.

Congratulations are in order, so congratulations to Cardi B and Offset.

Azealia Banks Comes to Nicki Minaj’s Defense Over Comments About Sexism in Rap

Roughly a month after she sent a message to Nicki Minaj apologizing for previously said (but unspecific) “catty shit,” Azealia Banks wrote a message of support for Minaj following an Instagram screenshot journalist and Rap Radar founder/CEO Elliott Wilson posted that was an implied endorsement of its contents. You be the judge:

 

A post shared by Elliott Wilson (@elliottwilson) on Oct 27, 2017 at 7:07am PDT

The tweet in question, as you can see, seemed to say that Minaj would win crowds back over once she stopped talking about her accomplishments (which may have to do with these recent tweets about the double-standards women face in hip-hop or her saying she's the most awarded female rapper in history). Banks, who took exception to that, posted some comments on the subject that were flagged by Complex writer Eric Diep (credit where credit's due, and all):

If you don't have eagle eyes, here's her response(s) to the screenshot:

A fan also implored her to re-focus her energy on rap:

LeBron James Wished Lonzo Ball Happy Birthday, and OMG, He’s Signing With the Lakers, Isn’t He?

Does LeBron James want everyone to think he’s signing with the Lakers next summer? There are already plenty of people who think he’s going to head west when he becomes a free agent in July 2018, including some NBA fans who are convinced that he’s going to take his talents to Los Angeles and sign with the Lakers. And on Friday, he threw a few more logs on that fire by taking to Twitter to wish Lonzo Ball a happy 20th birthday.

Now, it’s not out of the ordinary to see LeBron wishing his famous friends happy birthday on social media. Just the other day, he posted this on Instagram for Drake’s 31st birthday.

But because there are so many people who are already convinced that LeBron is going to the Lakers, his tweet for Lonzo raised a lot of eyebrows. And there are now people who think this is definitive proof that he’s headed to L.A.

You buying it? Whatever the case, the #LeBronZo hype is clearly real.

Migos, Cardi B, and Nicki Minaj’s “MotorSport” Is Here

After months of relentless teasing, the first single from Migos' Culture II has finally landed. “MotorSport” premiered Friday morning on the Breakfast Club shortly after the hosts endured a peculiar conversation with the Hillsong Church guy, just hours after a preview of the track landed on YouTube. 

Migos also teased the new track during their performance at Power 105.1's Powerhouse at Barclays Thursday night.

Check the full version of the soon-to-be-everywhere collaboration, featuring Cardi B and Nicki Minaj, below via Spotify. Murda Beatz and CuBeatz provide production.

Though we still don't have a formal Culture II release date, the arrival of “MotorSport” means we should likely expect the project soon. Judging by Quavo's recent headline-spawning social media activity, the collection may include a variety of additional top-shelf collaborators.

Donald Glover, Lil Yachty, Drake, Chance the Rapper, Ty Dolla Sign, Big Sean, Travis Scott, and Kanye West have all been either been seen in the studio with Quavo or heard in frustratingly brief clips of already completed collabs. Culture II also boasts a mystery executive producer, with many album hype theorists predicting their identity as being synonymous with 🐐.

Cardi B and Nicki Minaj, thankfully, also have new projects on the way. For Cardi B, the release will mark her debut studio album and arrives on the wave of hype cultivated by one of the best (and biggest songs) of 2017.

XXXTentacion Says He’s Terminating His $6 Million Deal With Capitol Records

XXXTentacion claims he has ended his contract with Capitol Music Group, less than a week after the reported $6 million record deal was announced.

The Florida rapper shared the news Wednesday night in an Instagram story, writing: “I am not a signed artist, and I will not be releasing music for a very long time, I’m tired of this shit.”

Complex has reached out to CMG and XXXTentacion’s team for confirmation.

 

#xxxtentacion speaks on #CapitolRecords and his future in music. Thoughts?

A post shared by HotNewHipHop (@hotnewhiphop) on Oct 25, 2017 at 4:00pm PDT

The deal was reportedly a distribution agreement between the rapper’s Bad Vibes Forever and and CMG’s indie distributor Caroline. According to Billboard, the contract would only “cover yet-to-be-released material.”

XXXTentacion has become one of the most successful and polarizing young rappers in the game. It was about two months ago when the 19-year-old dropped his first studio album, 17, which debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 200 and has since earned a total of 313,000 equivalent album units. His work has been overshadowed by controversy, which includes physical altercations with concert-goers, disturbing abuse allegations, and a publicity stunt that involved a fake suicide

Paul Rosenberg May Have Revealed the Title of Eminem’s Upcoming Album

Paul Rosenberg tried to spread the word about Yelawolf's upcoming album Trial by Fire, but it looks like he has simultaneously​ unveiled the title of Eminem's much anticipated new project. On Wednesday, Rosenberg posted a photo of himself holding the physical copy of Yelawolf's third studio effort with the caption, “@Yelawolf TRIAL BY FIRE comes out this Friday 10/27! #cdbaby.”

 

Look what arrived at the Shady offices today! @Yelawolf TRIAL BY FIRE comes out this Friday 10/27! #cdbaby

A post shared by Paul Rosenberg (@rosenberg) on Oct 25, 2017 at 1:26pm PDT

In the background, there appears to be a harmless looking billboard promoting a medication called “Revival.” 

However, the medication sports the backwards “E” synonymous with Em's logo. Reddit detectives then pinpointed that the full ad online was placed by Interscope Records. There's also a website for “Revival” that offers some clues, hinting at Em's involvement with what seems to be the fake medication. “Revival” is said to treat the ailment “Atrox Rithimus,” which is also not a real thing. 

If you call the number 1-833-243-8738 you'll be greeted by a voice that says “Thank you for your interest in Revival, the No. 1 slightly invasive treatment for Atrox Rithimus. You only get one shot to beat AR,” an obvious reference to Em's song “Lose Yourself.” Dr. Dre and Eminem's song “I Need A Doctor” is also playing in the background. The automated message then continues, “Don't miss your chance with Revival. Please hold to speak to a patient care representative.” 

We reached out to Eminem's rep for a comment though have yet to receive a response. We'll update when we hear back. If this is actually a part of the promotional campaign for the new album, which it sure looks to be, it's pretty creative and thorough.

Nicki Minaj on How She ‘Fought [Kanye] Every Step of the Way’ to Keep Her “Monster” Verse on ‘MBDTF’

It’s hard to imagine My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy without the incendiary hit single “Monster.” But according to Nicki Minaj, that was almost the case.

In celebration of the record’s seventh anniversary, The Pinkprint rapper reflected on her iconic verse and what it meant to collaborate with some of the biggest names in hip-hop. Nicki also mentioned the time she had to convince Kanye West to keep “Monster” on MBDTF, after he expressed his hesitation.

“Kanye called me to tell me Jay put a verse on this song & that he was still deciding if he would put it on his album,” she wrote on Instagram. “Haha. It was like an hour long call where I tried to convince him to let the song stay on his album. He felt this verse would end up being the talk of the album. I said: YOU’RE KANYE WEST!!!!”

She also admitted there was a minor disagreement when it came to her signature growl. Kanye wanted more, while Nicki feared it would be “overkill.”

You can read Nicki’s full note, which includes shout outs to Amber Rose and Blac Chyna, below.

“Monster” debuted Sept. 21, 2010, on Kanye’s G.O.O.D. Friday music program; however, it didn’t get an official release until Oct. 23, about a month before MBDTF dropped. The song went on to receive a platinum certification as well as plenty of critical praise, with many people applauding Nicki as the track's standout. Pretty impressive considering she was featured alongside Jay Z, Rick Ross, and Justin Vernon of Bon Iver.

Cardi B Explains Cryptic ‘Single’ Instagram Post: ‘I Was Really Upset’

When Instagram aped Snapchat’s “Stories” feature, the mini-clips were set by default to disappear within 24 hours. That setting will likely work to Cardi B’s benefit Saturday after the reality show star-turned chart-topping rapper posted a message hinting at a breakup with her boyfriend and Migos member Offset. Cardi posted a selfie with a text overlay simply reading “Single.”

 

Peace nikka ✌🏽

A post shared by Cardi B Official IG (@iamcardib) on Oct 20, 2017 at 6:44pm PDT

She then appeared to double down on the claim with a standard Instagram picture post featuring her throwing up the “peace” sign with both hands with a caption that read “Peace nikka.”

It was a seemingly abrupt about-face for a couple that was surrounded by some false engagement rumors as recently as August. Despite the fact that many celebrity relationships have the lifespan of a common fruit fly, mutual fans of Cardi and Offset took to Twitter and went into freak out mode.

Later Saturday, by Cardi’s own admission, cooler heads prevailed. The “Bodak Yellow” rapper explained her rationale for the relationship status update.

“So listed babes, I exaggerated a lil bit ’cause earlier I was really upset and the Bronx girl in me always have to go to the extreme,” Cardi said in a subsequent IG Stories post. “I came to my senses now. I’m sorry…Waffle House on me?”

Most fans will likely never find out what caused the spat between Cardi B and Offset because it’s none of our collective business. However, hours after everything calmed down, Cardi had some jokes about the source of the friction.

“Reasons why me and Offset got into it …I think he stoled my purple blanket but it wasn’t him so I’m still looking for the suspect,” she tweeted when fans flooded her mentions about the potential split.

“Why my dad was yelling at me cause somebody told him me and Offset broke up😒..and I’m quick cut my dad off so don’t get comfortable,” Cardi joked via Twitter, referencing a prominent line from the chorus of “Bodak Yellow.”

If Cardi B and Offset were your figurative #RelationshipGoals, you can take solace in the fact that love’s turbulent emotional waters can be navigated by a patty melt and some “scattered, covered and chunked” hash browns at the nearest Waffle House. Love wins.

London Newspaper Apologizes for Photoshopping Solange’s Hair

London’s Evening Standard has apologized for (re)touching Solange’s hair, just days after the singer/songwriter blasted the publication for cropping out an elaborate braid structure.

“We were delighted to have the chance to interview the wonderful Solange Knowles and photograph her for this week’s edition of ES. It is therefore a matter of great regret that the finished cover artwork caused concern and offence,” the Evening Standard wrote in a statement Saturday. “The decision to amend the photograph was taken for layout purposes, but plainly we made the wrong call and we have offered our unreserved apologies to Solange.”

Solange posted the original photo on social media with the caption “dtmh,” a reference to her Seat at the Table track “Don’t Touch My Hair.” The song addresses cultural identity, empowerment, and the micro-aggressions many black women face.

A post shared by Solange (@saintrecords) on Oct 19, 2017 at 9:25am PDT

Since then, the journalist who interviewed Solange for the article has asked to be disassociated with the piece.

“I am publicly disowning the Solange piece London Evening Standard published today. The entire piece was a fiasco despite my efforts,” writer Angelica Jade Bastien wrote on Twitter. “I told my editors to take my name off of the byline because they distorted my work and reporting in ways that made me very uncomfortable […]Which was heartbreaking given how much work I put into it and my interest in Solange as an artist.”

Nicki Minaj Confirms a Remix of “The Way Life Goes” With Lil Uzi Vert Exists

This past August, Nicki Minaj posted an Instagram video of her singing along to “The Way Life Goes,” a song off Lil Uzi Vert’s then-newly released debut album Luv Is Rage 2. She captioned the video: “Ummm, Uzi better make this a single, send me the beat, and quit playin.”

The news reached Uzi quickly, and he responded by reposting the video and adding a few cheeky emojis. 

 

🦄 ummm Uzi better make this a single, send me the beat, and quit playin 🙄

But that was all a long time ago, and fans of the artists have been left hanging without a remix or even news of its completion. But when Twitter user @IMAMTAY reminded Nicki of the remix, asking her where it was, Nicki had a slightly surprising answer.

Apparently, the collaboration has already happened but is being kept from the world for some ungodly reason that just proves that you can’t always get what you want.

Don Cannon, who Uzi is signed to his and DJ Drama's Generation Now label, says its not on them neither.

But Uzi remembers it differently.

Minaj and Uzi have worked together in the past, namely on “Froze,” a track on Meek Mill’s DC4 mixtape released last year. But now that Minaj and Meek are no longer an item and Uzi is a more established artist with a breakthrough hit, “XO Tour Llif3.” Whatever these two cooked up together would be definitely worth a listen. Here’s hoping whoever is holding up the remix changes their mind soon enough.
