Anderson .Paak Has A Song With Eminem & Boogie On The Way
We may be hearing an unlikely collaboration between Paak and Eminem soon.
It seems that Sway actually had a better idea of what might be done with the song than Paak did, and suggests that the song will be appearing on the soundtrack to the film Bodied, which is set to premiere sometime this year.
The film, which is executive produced by Eminem, is about a young white man who becomes a competitive battle rapper, after being immersed in the scene when trying to write his graduate thesis on the subject. The film premiered at the Toronto Film Festival and won an Audience Choice award. Bodied will also feature roles by Charlamagne Tha God and Dumbfoundead. The movie will be distributed through YouTube Red sometime this year.
While Eminem and Paak is a bizarre thought to begin with, Eminem on a funky dance track sounds even weirder. But knowing those two, they should be able to pull it off easily.
Donald Glover, Chris Rock, Jerry Seinfeld & More Appear in Tina Fey’s “SNL” Monologue
Tina Fey hosts a star-studded “SNL” finale.
In the spirit of her birthday, Tina said that the powers that be gave her free will to do whatever with her monologue and so, she used it as an opportunity to take questions from “random” audience members. What took place was a star-studded Q&A session featuring Jerry Seinfeld, Benedict Cumberbatch, Chris Rock, Robert De Niro (who starred in the episode’s cold open), “SNL” alum Fred Armisen, Anne Hathaway, and Donald Glover.
Seinfeld was the first to dish out his question asking Fey if he thought that the amount of celebrity cameos on the show was taking away from other cast members before the arsenal of celebrity cameos was hilariously unleashed. Among other prompts were Cumberbatch’s inquiry into whether or not the show has thought about replacing Kenan Thompson with someone more famous with Chris Rock seconding that sentiment.
Fred Armisen asked Tina if she felt that the return of former cast members was taking camera time from the newer generation of “SNL” stars before wading into a pointless conversation about his diet regimen thereby wasting some camera time before Donald Glover reminded Tina that he was here just a couple of weeks agoand was wondering if she’d seen his hat anywhere in the host room.
“Just so you know, I have this system in place. So, I’ll be able to tell if you’ve worn it or not,” he warned.
The scene wasn’t complete until Fey’s 30 Rock costar Tracy Morgan popped up onstage to surprise Tina for her birthday shortly before she revealed to Morgan that Nicki Minaj was the evening’s musical guest. His response?
“I’ma get that pregnant.” Watch the full clip below.

The Internet Set Release Date For “Hive Mind” Album
The Internet appeared on Sway In The Morning this week to reveal the July 20 release date of their Hive Mind album and drop knowledge on their next tour.
While speaking on their new single “Roll (Burbank Funk),” Syd explained how they collectively chose the beats for that particular song and other records. She revealed the beat for “Roll (Burbank Funk),” which was produced by fellow group member Patrick Paige II, was one they all agreed on.
“We’ll sit on it and then we just keep making stuff,” Syd said when asked what happens when the group doesn’t agree on a beat. “And [Patrick] brought that in the very early stages of the album making process. So, we were just sitting on beats. And we all kinda gravitate towards the same ones, thankfully.”
In regards to the Hive Mind title, The Internet’s Matt Martians explained it was inspired by a number of factors, including the internet itself and a group of psychics from a Marvel comic book.
“It’s actually very simple,” he said. “If you Google what hive mind means it’s basically just a collective ego, a collective mind. When people that are together they have a collective mindset. And I think when we’re together we all have a common goal. And we move in the same direction. So, it’s really that simple. And the internet is a hive mind of information. The actual internet. So, it kinda just has multiple reasons. And you know what’s funny? I got it from Marvel comics … It’s like a group in the comic books that are collective psychics that are super powerful when they’re together.”
And for fans eager to get their live fix of The Internet, Syd revealed that a tour can be expected “later in the year.”

“I have a record on there featuring Khalid that is insane,” KYLE revealed in a Beats 1 interview with Zane Lowe from last June. “I cannot stop playing it. I wake up every morning and I play [it]. It’s one of the best songs I’ve ever made. It’s featuring your boy Khalid and he snapped. It’s called ‘I Miss Me.’”
KYLE’s breakout hit “iSpy” took over the radio in 2017, peaking at #4 on the Hot 100 chart and quickly getting certified 3x platinum. The visual for the up-beat track boasts more than 222 million views on YouTube.
Meek Mill Cancels White House Visit After JAY-Z Phonecall
Meek Mill will no longer be attending a White House summit on prison reform on Friday (May 18), according to TMZ.
Donald Trump is scheduled to deliver remarks at the summit, and Meek felt that appearing alongside the president could distract from his message of bringing positive change to the criminal justice system.
Meek provided a statement to TMZ to explained his change of heart.
“I was originally scheduled to be part of a panel on Prison Reform at the White House to help shed light on the issues within the system. Unfortunately, the focus turned to the President and Myself which concerned me that it might take away from creating a positive result from today’s discussions. As a result, I decided not to attend so that the focus would be solely on fixing our prison system. Most importantIy I remain fully committed to improving our criminal justice system.”
TMZ also reports the decision came after JAY-Z called his Roc Nation artist to discourage him from the visit.
Meek also reportedly got calls from other “high-profile African-Americans” who advised him against it.
[This article has been updated. The following was published on May 18, 2018 at 7 a.m. PST.]
Since his dramatic return from prison that seemed like something straight out of a movie, Meek Mill has been performing and doing multiple interviews to raise awareness on prison reform. To further his cause, he is reportedly scheduled to have a meeting at the White House on Friday (May 18).
According to TMZ, Meek will be meeting with someone to discuss prison reform. It’s unclear who will be attending the meeting besides the Philly rapper. Sources have also told TMZ that other celebrities have urged Meek not to show up.
Meek will also appear on Reverend Al Sharpton’s show PoliticsNation on Sunday (May 20) at 8 a.m. ET. Dateline covered Meek’s case up to his release as well as the first few days after his release from prison.
Fans will also be happy to hear that Meek has returned to the studio to work on new music.

Drake & Lil Baby Debut “Pikachu” On OVO Sound Radio
Drake and Lil Baby have finally released their collaboration and it’s titled “Pikachu.” The track was teased initially during Preme’s release party in Atlanta earlier this month and debuted on OVO Sound Radio this past Saturday (May 12). The Wheezy-produced track was confirmed by Beats 1 on Twitter soon after it dropped.
Drake is already on a solid run as he prepares for the release of his album, Scorpion, due out in June. The rapper recently broke the record for most weeks at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 for a male artist this decade. Drake surpassed Bruno Mars after hitting 33 weeks at #1. “God’s Plan” debuted at #1 on the Hot 100 and stayed there for 11 weeks before being replaced by “Nice For What.” But the record-break also came with the help of “One Dance” (10 weeks at #1), “Work” with Rihanna (9 weeks) and “What’s My Name” (1 week). “Nice For What” is still at #1 while “God’s Plan” sits at #3.
Will “Pikachu” be joining the rest of Drake’s songs on the Hot 100? Take a listen to the track below.
Wiz Khalifa Says He Could Be Pro Fighter But Prefers Rapping
Ahead of the July release of his upcoming album, Rolling Papers 2, Wiz Khalifa has been getting in fighting shape.
TMZ caught up with the “Black and Yellow” rapper at LAX, and asked him about Jay Glazer’s recent comments about him.
The NFL analyst and gym owner recently said Khalifa is “really good” at fighting, and was the only one who was able to give Glazer an injury body shot. Glazer also said that, if Khalifa really wanted to, he could go pro with his MMA career because “his work ethic is ridiculous.”
Khalifa agreed with Glazer’s assessment and said that while he would love to take his MMA career to the next level, he’ll need a lot of financial incentive.
“You gotta pay me a whole bunch of money to get me to fight, man,” he said, adding that while he prefers rapping to fighting, he’s having “a lot of fun” while training with some of the best MMA fighters in the world.
For his part, Glazer agrees. “I hope he continues to make his money without getting punched in the face,” he said.

Jacquees Detained At Milwaukee Airport
Jacquees ran into some trouble with the law at Milwaukee’s Mitchell Airport.
This isn’t Que’s first run-in with the law. It was back in March that he was arrested in South Beach Miami after failing to obey a lawful command during a traffic stop that occurred because of his failure to wear a seat belt. It also doesn’t happen to be his first incident involving an airport. Last summer he was kicked off a Delta flight in his hometown of Atlanta when the aircraft was forced to return to the gate after he didn’t hang up his cellphone as is the usual protocol.
At the moment, no official details are available on the circumstances surrounding the singer’s detainment and if it led to any charges, but it’s good to know that it ended in a relatively more positive note.

Cardi B Deletes Instagram & Locks Twitter After Slamming Azealia Banks
Cardi B and Azealia Banks’ perceived beef just got taken up a notch. After Banks chided the “Bodak Yellow” rapper for her bad grammar and spelling during her Breakfast Club interview on Friday (May 11), Cardi responded to Banks’ comments on Twitter.
Cardi then deleted her Instagram and made her Twitter account private, seemingly fed up with the drama. But before she made her exit, Cardi sent out a barrage of tweets defending herself.
“Why is it that male rappers can speak how they want act how they want but people constantly bash me for it?” she began. “Why do i feel like i have to apologize for being who i am? talking how i talk and being what ya call “Ghetto” wtff. LEAVE ME ALONE!”
Cardi continued, “Every week it seems like i’m in somebody’s mouth. Why was nobody talking about me when i was on love and hip hop? all of a sudden i’m the reason why the world is such a horrible place. i be minding my business i wake up and boom something about Cardi. i don’t get it.”
But she wasn’t done there. The pregnant Cardi continued defending her thick New York accent and broken English while showing love for her fiancé Offset, calling him her “personal pastor.”
During the Breakfast Club interview, Banks explained she called Cardi an “illiterate, untalented rat” because she was in shock the bar had been set so low for female rappers. Cardi’s initial response to hearing what Banks said about her found Cardi questioning the Harlem rapper’s approval of Beyoncé and calling Banks out for bleaching her skin.
“Beyoncé? Wasn’t Beyonce the same woman she was talking shit about and dragging all over the media?” she commented. “I’m from the hood I speak how I speak I am how I am. I did not choose to be famous people choose me! People followed me on Instagram and the people gave me a platform to introduce my talent. I never asked to be a example or a role model.
“I don’t want to change my ways because I’m famous that’s why I just mind my business. This is coming from a woman that bleached her skin but want to advocate. GOODBYE. Im not apologizing or killing myself because of who I am.”

Outkast Celebrates Big Boi’s Son’s High School Graduation
ATLANTA, GA – As Outkast, Big Boi and André 3000 are undeniably two of the most celebrated Hip Hop artists of all time. Hip Hop heads have been longing for another Outkast album since 2006 when they dropped Idlewild. Although there’s no known plans for new music from the ATLiens, it’s clear they’re at least still hanging out.
On Saturday (May 12), Daddy Fat Sacks and 3K attended the graduation of Big Boi’s son Andre “Bamboo” Patton II, who had just gotten his high school diploma from Woodward Academy in Georgia.
https://www.instagram.com/p/BirsZBNHqMS/embed/captioned/?cr=1&v=8&wp=500&rd=hiphopdx.com#%7B%22ci%22%3A0%2C%22os%22%3A1740.300000004936%7DBig Boi shared a handful of photos to his Instagram account, which included a video of the moment his mini-me received his degree.
“Thank you Jesus !” Big Boi captioned the video. “My Baby Boy just Graduated with Honors !!! Antwan Andre’ Patton II ‘Bamboo’ #PattonBoys @woodwardacademy Class of 2018 #WithHonors #NextStopCollege.”
https://www.instagram.com/p/BirrSV1nveA/embed/captioned/?cr=1&v=8&wp=500&rd=hiphopdx.com#%7B%22ci%22%3A1%2C%22os%22%3A1745.1000000000931%7Dhttps://www.instagram.com/p/Birle1BHZlc/embed/captioned/?cr=1&v=8&wp=500&rd=hiphopdx.com#%7B%22ci%22%3A2%2C%22os%22%3A1750.9000000136439%7DOutkast went on a full-fledged tour in 2014 and reunited for a performance at a Dungeon Family reunion in 2016. But in a 2017 interview with Complex, he implied another album wasn’t likely in the cards.
“Now it’s [rapping] more like a hobby for me, so I don’t think about it in that way,” he said. “Even with Outkast — if we never do another album, I’m totally fine with that. When I was 25, I said I don’t want to be a 30-year-old rapper. I’m 42 now, and I feel more and more that way. Do I really want to be 50 years old up there doing that? When I watch other rappers that are my age I commend them, but I just wonder where the inspiration is coming from. At this stage I’m really more focused on what I am going to be doing 10 years from now. And I hope to God it won’t be rapping.”
Big Boi and 3K have been staying busy though. Daddy Fat Stacks dropped Boomiverse last year and headed out on tour, while André popped up on the track “Rollinem 7s” from N.E.R.D’s comeback album, No_One Really Dies.
Azealia Banks Says Cardi B Only Identified As Black When She Became A Rapper
Now, the often controversial Harlem rapper has returned with her response to Cardi’s seething comments, attacking the Invasion Of Privacy rapper’s looks.
“Belcalis….sis, give up,” she wrote on Saturday (May 12). “You have a fever and are leaking breast milk everywhere trying to come up with a refutable comeback. Sis spent 12 hours proofreading a message while still COMPLETELY missing the point. You and whoever wrote this reply for you don’t have the intelligence to engage in this not-so-complex discussion.
“I spoke about it for all of two minutes in an interview and you respond by calling me unattractive..mentioning my bleaching my skin and telling me to ‘suck your ass.’ Immediately proving yourself to be exactly who I thought you were.. A Bird. Sis .. let’s not forget that you look like a big toe with a Hammernail without all of that contour on your face. You are a very mediocre looking light-skin woman with cold sores on the sides of her mouth, a coated tongue you love to wag around and horribly deep set eyes.”
Banks went on to point out that Cardi used to solely identify as Latina and says she only recently started calling herself black once she got into Hip Hop.
“It’s clear that you are having a problem with this new found proximity to blackness as evidenced by your propensity to turn any and all attempts to engage you in these important cultural discussions into faux-sympathetic cry baby rants about how you’re just a dumb bitch from the hood who never asked to be a role model. Reverse psychology won’t work here.
“As a Black Woman in hiphop its IMPERATIVE that you use your (new found) Black Womanhood responsibly. Saying things to Rolling Stone like, ‘I don’t even use condoms’ when HIV remains a threat to the many minority girls who patronize your music is IRRESPONSIBLE.”
Before wrapping up her tirade, the “Anna Wintour” rapper left Cardi with some advice.
“I suggest you leave these types of cultural conversations alone for now,” she concluded. “You don’t have the range.”

Kanye West Is Officially More Popular With White People According To Recent Poll
Kanye West may believe he’s out of the “sunken place” but judging by a recent tally, it looks like he’s still there. A new CNN/SSRS Poll shows West is more popular among white people than non-white people.
The poll states 23 percent of people who identified themselves as white said they had a favorable opinion of ‘Ye, while only 20 percent of those who said they’re non-white feel the same. Meanwhile, 53 percent said they had an unfavorable opinion of West overall.
Interviews were conducted from May 2 to May 5, 2018 among a sample of 1,015 respondents. The landline total of respondents were 402 and there were 613 cell phone respondents.
The poll comes just weeks after West went on TMZ Live and made the statement that 400 years of slavery sounded like “a choice.” Of course, this caused a flurry of controversy and subsequently spawned the hashtag “#IfSlaveryWasAChoice.”
Prior to that interview, Yeezy made it clear he still supports Donald Trump, even posting a photo of himself wearing a Make America Great Again hat. He described both himself and Trump has having the same “dragon energy,” and referred to Trump as his “brother.”
West also aligned himself with conservative political commentator Candace Owens in a tweet stating he likes how she thinks. Owens then appeared with him on the now infamous TMZ Live interview.
Throughout the firestorm of contentious tweets, West dropped two singles, “Lift Yourself” and “Ye Vs. The People” featuring T.I. The former was deemed more of a masterful troll track for its non-sensical “scoopity poop” bars, while the latter was more of a debate on Trump between the Grand Hustle mastermind and Yeezy.
Yo Gotti Concert Interrupted By Fatal Shooting Outside Venue
KANSAS CITY, MO – Things reportedly took a violent turn outside of a Yo Gotti concert in Kansas City, Missouri on Friday night (May 11),
According to Fox4KC, Gotti was on stage around 11:30 p.m. local time when gunfire erupted outside the Uptown Theater, leaving one person dead.
As Fox4KC reports, a fight broke out inside the venue before spilling out to a parking lot across the street from a venue.

HipHopDX reached out to the Kansas City Police Department but didn’t hear immediately back.
Kodak Black’s New Song “Mama” Ft. Jadakiss Is Dropping On Mother’s Day
Kodak Black‘s still been dropping music despite his legal issues. The rapper was sentenced to a year behind bars after taking a plea deal in his guns and drugs case. While the rapper’s expected to be out this fall, there’s no doubt that he has enough music in the stash to hold fans over until his release. Kodak’s released music while incarcerated in the past and from what his engineer said, he’s been recording over the phone from jail. We haven’t received much new music from him recently but this Sunday, he has a little treat dropping specifically for Mother’s Day.
Kodak Black’s new song “Mama” featuring Jadakissand TXS is dropping at midnight on Mother’s Day. The rapper revealed this on his Instagram account which is definitely being handled by his management at the present time. It’s definitely exciting to know that we’ll have some new Kodak to vibe out to and we’re sure his mother will be extra appreciative of the song.
Aside from music, Kodak’s been doing some things to better his life from behind bars. He recently revealed that he’s writing a new book from prison. In addition, the rapper reportedly changed his name in jail from Dieuson Octave to Bill K. Kapri. The report claimed that the name change was for a “fresh start” but it wouldn’t change his stage name.
Peep the cover art for “Mama” below.
