Young Thug and Future Drop “Group Home” Video

As we wait for the better-be-inevitable Super Slimey sequel, why not dive into a new visual from the Young “SEX” Thug and Future collab project?

The cinematic “Group Home” video was directed by Videogod, who has previously flipped songs by Wiz Khalifa and Gucci Mane into memorable slices of film. See the appropriately super and slimey video for the TM88 and Fuse 100-produced track below:

Thugger and Future's 13-track tape was unveiled back in October and also saw production assists from Richie Souf, Southside, Wheezy, and more. For the project's only guest spot, the two enlisted Offset for the highlight “Patek Water,” which now stands as one of many examples of Offset's underappreciated solo charisma.

The chances of a Slimey sequel are, if nothing else, not terrible. At the time of the tape's release, Southside told Complex that those 13 tracks “aren't even the hardest” of what they wrote together. He added that “it might not even be a Super Slimey 2,” but instead “What a Slime to Be Alive” up next. “We are with the element of surprise,” he said.

Slimey hashtags were also tossed around in the recent swarm of pictures showing Thugger in the studio with Travis Barker, though Thugger ​did vow to hold off on dropping new music in 2018 in honor of his deaf brother

Future, meanwhile, has a full slate of music plans for the year ahead including music for Director X's Superfly revival.​ Just last month, he teased new music in the film's first trailer:

Diddy Urges Aspiring Rappers ‘Don’t Be Part of the Noise’

Diddy decided to drop some words of wisdom onto the 'Gram Tuesday night, sharing a “message from love” to all the aspiring rap artists out there. “Every artist has to be unique in their own right,” he said, preaching into his front cam.

“I guess I'm trying to say if you're going to be in this game be great, because you can also be part of the noise,” he explained further. 

There's been tons of debate over creativity being scarce in rap as of late, with everyone from Joe Budden, to Wiz Khalifa and Snoop Dogg giving their own hot takes on the issue. In the post Diddy shared, however, he seems to be coming from a genuine place of concern for the culture, rather than taking cheap jabs at the youngsters. In his caption he writes, “I don't want the culture to get diluted. Artists have to be special, you have to be unique.”

People sounded off in the comments voicing their own opinions, praising Diddy for keeping it real, or flat-out shading artists they thought were guilty of what Diddy was cautioning against.

Keeping it on a positive note, Diddy ended his Tuesday night musings with a message of positivity: “With that said, all you young inspiring rappers out there, and R&B artists and singers, and dancers keep doing your thing and be special.”

Lil Peep’s Cause of Death Confirmed as Overdose of Xanax and Fentanyl

Lil Peep’s cause of death has reportedly been revealed.

According to TMZ, the Pima County Medical Examiner’s office found that the rising rapper died from an an overdose of Fentanyl and Xanax, confirming previous suspicions surrounding his cause of death. The toxicology report states there was no alcohol found in his system; however, there were traces of various other drugs, including marijuana, cocaine, Tramadol, Hydrocodone, and Oxycodone.

The medical examiner’s office deemed the cause of death “accidental.”

The news arrives nearly one month after Lil Peep was found dead on a tour bus in Tuscon, Arizona, where he was scheduled to perform. He was 21.

In the wake of his death, a number of hip-hop figures have spoken out about rampant drug use within the genre. Wiz Khalifa told Complex he has encouraged his friends to stop consuming lean; Lil Uzi Vert announced he was giving up drugs; and Vic Mensa ​called out rappers who glorify drug use in an effort to sell records.  

“To be honest, it’s like, on one hand I almost don’t even feel that I have a right to chastise anybody because I’ve fucking done it […] I regret it,” Mensa told Billboard. “I don’t rap about it anymore, but I have some lines about taking Xanax. I just think that we’re in such a dangerous place now because it’s been normalized and the drug abuse has been reduced to like a marketing tactic.”

Wiz Khalifa on Cam’ron, Cigarettes, and ‘Laugh Now, Fly Later’

Wiz Khalifa's new project Laugh Now, Fly Later dropped earlier this month, and he came by for a new episode of Trending Topics to speak about his favorite rapper in the world (Cam'ron), why people should smoke weed instead of cigarettes, and his close relationship with Curren$y.

Having come up during the peak of the blog era, Wiz also took a moment to share his thoughts on the current relevance of blogs: “I just think blogs definitely still matter as much as they did before, I just think the content is different. People have come up so many other ways, like SoundCloud. And now if you, like, piss on your homeboy while he's sleeping, you'll get popular on Instagram.”

During his visit, Khalifa also had a chance to make good on his promise (eight years later) to reward every blog and DJ for their support of Burn After Rolling with white papers:

 

8 years later, @wizkhalifa delivers. Thank u Wiz

Thanks, Wiz.

Wiz Khalifa: ‘It’s Unfortunate That Lil Peep Had to Die’

Wiz Khalifa, who recently released his mixtape Laugh Now, Fly Later, stopped by the Complex office Thursday and talked about drug culture, particularly the use of lean, and also touched on Lil Peep's passing earlier today.

Earlier this month, the Pittsburgh rapper denounced lean, and doubled down in his conversation with Complex News' Jinx. “I just feel like somebody has to speak up for people who don't believe in that, or are really tired of seeing it,” he said. “It's unfortunate that Lil Peep had to die and stuff like that, but these are the things people are gonna start seeing and keep happening if they don't really relax and fall back.”

Wiz added: “I got a couple friends who do sip lean and shit, and I tell them all the time like, 'Yo, that shit is wack bro.'” Check out the full interview above.

Shortly after, the video was made available on YouTube.

Amber Rose Reveals How Kanye West Has ‘Bullied’ Her Over the Last 7 Years

In our new episode of Everyday Struggle, Amber Rose spoke at length about her previous relationship with Kanye West and how it still affects her to this day. 

“I still have never said anything mean about Kanye,” she explained. “This is after six, seven years of constant bullying from him.” One moment she highlighted was 'Ye's infamous tweet storm in early 2016 that included the rapper talking about Rose and Wiz Khalifa's son, Sebastian. “You don't say nothing about my baby,” she told Joe Budden, DJ Akademiks, and Nadeska.

“I was quiet for so long. I could have got a reality show just off the fact that I was his girlfriend. I could have wrote a book just off the fact that I was his girlfriend. I said, you know what? I'm a real ass bitch. I'mma take the high road and work my ass off, and I'm going to get everything I get on my own, so nobody can be like, 'Yo I gave her that.'”

“The only thing I got from him was fame, and fame don't get you no fucking money,” she continued.

Rose also talked about My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy and how she views that album as a form of bullying from West as well. “Everyone else thought it was just about me, and it wasn't… I had to just take that L,” she said.

She added: “If I was going to kill myself, I would have done it during those times.”
