Enjoy this playlist as you head into the weekend.
It’s Friday. It’s 2k18. What better time is there for you to follow our FIRE EMOJI playlist??? There is no better time, get your life together.We’ve been building up our Spotify playlist, FIRE EMOJI, as a breeding ground for the dopest/best/hottest hip-hop and r’n’b songs that are out right now. We’re always on the hunt for newest of the new (so long as it’s fye) to add to it, while older songs are gradually curated out of the playlist and added to our massive/only-playlist-of-its-kind Archive — if you have a couple of days to spare, give it a listen.In an effort to keep your earbuds satisfied and keep up with the non-stop pace of the internetz, we update FIRE EMOJI on a daily basis, and we’re sharing it with you every Friday, to help accommodate your weekend plans. If you didn’t keep up with the site’s daily songs list for the entire week, then consider this as a simple recap on the songs you might have missed, and more importantly, the songs you really need in your life this weekend.This week on the playlist: we find a couple of gems unearthed from the quite-long surprise album from Playboi Carti, as well as a Ty Dolla $ign BH3 bonus cut, and Ski Mask and Sahbabii’s flute-riddled and wonky “Coolest Monkey in the Jungle” collab. Not to mention, Childish Gambino‘s much-discussed and dissected record “This is America,” as well as whatever songs we deemed dope from through out the past seven days (Buddy, Valee and Juice WRLD, for example).Enjoy and/or comment below (cause we know it’s one or the other!).—-Follow HNHH on Spotify.Follow FIRE EMOJI on Spotify.Follow our freshly-updated Wake & Bake playlist here.Follow our G.O.O.D.

Missy Elliott is screaming from the rooftops.
At 46 years old, Missy Elliott is looking radiant as ever. In just 4 months, the Virginia-born rapper has implemented a new dietary plan that doesn’t come at the cost of her sweet-tooth. Her step by step approach is difficult to ascertain with the added-help of footnotes, but Missy insists she has Soda and Bread to thank for holding her back.Since eliminating the gluten based products from her diet she has maintained an equilibrium and lost 30 excess pounds of weight. You see, in Missy’s previous life, she was never much of a water drinker. But now with the restoration of her healthy “glow” she has become a firm believer in the famous rule of 8 regular sized glasses of water per day, if not more. Missy also reports the disappearance of a “sluggish feeling” she had grown accustomed to in the absence of water.With all the sacrifices Missy has made to look this radiant well into her 40s, she is allowing herself roughly “two cupcakes per month” as a compensatory reward. According to Livestrong, her diet is more adequately explained as the quantifiable expulsion of sugar. Sugar has a nasty habit of weakening the immune system, which in turn effects the aging process, one day at a time.
Meek Mill simply can’t resist the sight of Rihanna in lingerie.
Sometimes, all a man can do is shoot his shot and hope for the best. Short of sliding into the DMs, Instagram comments are often a viable, less intimate alternative. Granted, if the subject in question is Rihanna, the comment section tends to turn into a feeding frenzy not unlike sharks on chum. That hasn’t stopped Meek Mill from boldly venturing forth an attempt, as suitors aspirant have done for years prior. Today, Meek was caught running game by the ever-watchful eye of The Shade Room, who put his effort on display for all competitors to see.Employing what many experts have come to identity as “pun game,” Meek hit Rihanna with a double entendre for the ages: “Robin Thicke.” Admittedly, Rihanna’s birth name is Robyn, and she is most definitely thick. In that regard, the comment is an unmitigated success. Yet it does seem strange that Meek is essentially praising a woman by comparing her to a man. In all fairness, landing a date with Rihanna is no doubt a difficult task; we can only hope that Meek is up for the challenge.If not for anything, the Drake reaction alone would no doubt make everything worth it. Still, one can hardly blame Meek, and he wouldn’t be the first rapper to leave their mark on Rihanna’s comment section. Tip your hats to the Wins & Losses rapper, and let us hope he can land another one in the win column.
