Nipsey Hussle Performs “FDT” in Front of Kanye West’s MAGA Selfie

Nipsey Hussle and YG provided one of the best anti-Trump tracks when they dropped “FDT” (Fuck Donald Trump) back in March 2016, well ahead of the presidential election that would later put Trump in the oval office.

Since then, Snoop Dogg, Rae Sremmurd, A Tribe Called Quest, Eminem, and many more have joined their ranks, dissing the president. Since “FDT” came out, Nipsey hasn’t backed down on his views of Donald, and made that clear during his performance at Broccoli Festival in Washington D.C. on Saturday. Not only was “FDT” part of his set, but during the song he displayed a selfie of Kanye wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat in the background.  The photo of Ye did not sway fans from putting their middle fingers up and singing along.

Twitter was set ablaze last week as Kanye tweeted about his love and support of Donald Trump. John Legend, Snoop Dogg, T.I., Questlove, and countless other celebrities expressed everything from concern to disdain for Ye’s comments. Nipsey Hussle’s performance shows he’s clearly among that chorus. Kanye is well-aware of the backlash, so we’ll see if he takes the time to respond to the L.A. rapper's performance.

Cardi B’s New Nardwuar Interview Is Absolutely Biblical

Nardwuar landed his most illustrious guest yet for his latest upload: Cardi B.

Across 10 minutes of pure joy, the Human Serviette chopped it up with Cardi about a variety of highly discussable topics whilst inundating her with enviable gifts. Watch the full interview below unless you're some kind of a masochist who enjoys denying yourself happiness.


Among the gifted awesomeness in the latest Nardwuar interview are a copy of Junie B. Jones and Her Big Fat Mouth, a Freak Nasty CD, an LP of presidential history, and some Al B. Sure.

The Narduwar interview arrives after Cardi B absolutely owned the stage during the first weekend of Coachella 2018. YG, 21 Savage, Kehlani, and more joined Bardi for the Invasion of Privacy-celebrating set that was partially funded by Cardi's own money. If you missed the set in person and/or on the livestream, catch a few highlights below:

Fittingly, the excellent Invasion of Privacy is currently the No. 1 album in the country after debuting with 255,000 equivalent album units. That haul gives Cardi the second largest week of the year behind Justin Timberlake's decidedly not excellent Man of the Woods.

Chrissy Teigen Responds to Cardi B Wanting a Threesome With Her and Rihanna: ‘Gasp!!’

Cardi B’s highly anticipated first album, Invasion of Privacy, finally dropped earlier today, and it’s already making major waves. The general impression is that Cardi has proved she isn’t a “Bodak Yellow” one-hit wonder, and her in-your-face personality shines through all of the tracks. One of Cardi’s new songs, “She Bad” featuring YG, is garnering all kinds of attention for a few cheeky lines referencing some very famous celebrities, namely Chrissy Teigen and Rihanna.

In “She Bad,” Cardi raps: “I need Chrissy Teigen/Know a bad bitch when I see one/Tell Rih-Rih I need a threesome.” It’s a wink to two of the most real and baddest celebrities in the game right now, and fits in nicely with the rest of the song’s sexual subject matter.

Here’s one thing Cardi B (and the rest of us, to be honest) might have wished for, but didn’t necessarily expect: a response from Chrissy herself. Chrissy took to her all-powerful Twitter to respond to the lyrics, and even though her response is short and sweet, it’s honestly the exact same reaction anyone with a pulse had when imagining Cardi B, Chrissy, and Rihanna… hanging out together.

Chrissy, who has written the New York Times best-selling cookbook Cravings, is a huge foodie and is always posting photos of what she eats and cooks on her social media. Right after she noted that she is aware of her new status in the rap world, she played around a little with the new “bad bitch” title—and proved that her previous “biscuit” line wasn't just a joke.

The fact that Chrissy acknowledged her shout-out in Cardi’s verse left seemingly the entirety of Twitter absolutely shook.

The only thing that could top this now is if Rihanna also answered. I’ll just be here eating biscuits until that happens.

Nipsey Hussle Says He and YG Are Still Releasing Their Joint Project

Nipsey Hussle and YG first dropped plans to release a joint album back in 2013. Fast forward five years later, the project still hasn't materialized thanks to each of their busy schedules. Thankfully, it appears we won't have to wait much longer.

In a chat with Billboard on his album Victory Lap, Nipsey spoke about the stalled collaboration. The rapper confirmed that their solo careers have been the focus up until now, but by no means have given up on their joint album.”The idea is definitely not dead. Life happens,” he said, “He got a solo career and I got a solo career. He got a kid and I got kids. That’s something the West wants, and we’re gonna do it, and we’re gonna call it 'America’s Most Wanted.'”

As it turns out, Nipsey revealed that some of his previous songs with YG like “FDT” were actually intended for the collaboration tape. “''FDT' was for the YG and Nip Hussle album, and you heard how crazy that shit came out? He put that on the album and was like, “Fuck that, I’m done.” And I understand that. Those sessions were sessions for the collab project.” He said. “We went into Mustard’s studio every day. Young Thug came through. A lot of songs that wound up on different projects happened in there.”

While he did not give a release date for AMW, we can only assume it will be a while before they make it happen. YG just announced the title of his next studio album, Stay Dangerous, and Nipsey's still working hard to promote Victory Lap, which just debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 this week

YG Says He’s Russell Westbrook and James Harden Combined

There were a number of events going down in Los Angeles over NBA All-Star Weekend, including YG's first annual The Boogie, which featured a 3-on-3 basketball tournament and concert.

Complex News' Pierce Simpson caught up with YG before the tourney took place to get a sense of what the Compton rapper had in store for attendees on and off the court. YG also got boastful by saying he's a combo of Russell Westbrook and James Harden.

Pierce later chopped it up with Nipsey Hussle about his new album Victory Lap.

Teyana Taylor also dropped in to talk about her upcoming album, which is fully produced by Kanye West. Fans can expect that to drop within the next few months. Check out the full video, which also includes Belly, up top.

Lil Yachty, Migos, and Gucci Mane Have a Collab Project Dropping Soon

2017 was a big year for Lil Yachty. He released his debut studio album, Teenage Emotions, which included features from some of the most prominent names in music: Migos, Diplo, and YG, among others. The “bubblegum trap” artist also saw his work nominated for two awards—a Grammy for Best Sung/Rap Collaboration (“Broccoli” with DRAM) and an MTV Europe Music Award for Best Video (“iSpy” with Kyle).

One of the best things Lil Yachty has done is associate himself with, and give himself the opportunity to learn from, other successful hip-hop artists. He'll continue that trend with a collaboration album that is slated to drop later this month.

The project features some of Atlanta's finest: Yachty, Migos, and Gucci Mane. The project will reportedly be titled Glacier Boyz Tape.

Gucci Mane teased the project in January.

Migos, during a January visit with The Breakfast Club to promote their new album, Culture II, also confirmed they had a project coming with Gucci Mane. Additionally, Quavo had teased the project with a quickly-deleted tweet.

It's not clear whether Yachty was a part of the project when the idea was initially hatched, but he made the news of Glacier Boyz Tape a little more formal with a tweet on Sunday.

Expect to see the project released in the next few weeks. Brrrr.
