50 Cent Subtly Disses Pop Smoke’s Manager For Virgil Abloh Cover Drama

50 Cent criticizes Steven Victor, Pop Smoke’s manager, for enlisting Virgil Abloh to design the cover artwork for Pop Smoke’s new album.

In the eyes of 50 Cent, none of this backlash would have happened if Steven Victor, the late Pop Smoke‘s manager, kept his nose out of his business and never hit up Virgil Abloh to design the cover art for Shoot For The Stars, Aim For The Moon.

For the last couple of days, 50 Cent has been flooding the timeline with potential covers for the official debut studio album by Pop Smoke, which will also serve as his first posthumous full-length project. While the moment is bittersweet for many reasons, it turned ugly when Virgil Abloh revealed the cover artwork he had designed for it. Labeled “lazy” and “disrespectful,” the art was not a hit with fans.

Fiddy has been working hard in securing features for the album and he laid it on the Off-White designer for his design, much like everyone else did on social media. Now, he’s being more calculated in his approach but he is subtly dissing Steven Victor, the executive that managed Pop, for even inviting Virgil to the party.

“If steven would have just stayed out of the way, i wouldn’t have to do all this shit,” wrote Curtis Jackson, referring to everyone telling him to stop drowning out content on the TL. “I should ouch him in da face.”

Out of the covers that Fif has shared this week, do you have a favorite?


New & Hottest Songs – July 2020 – Pt.7

Buddy Recruits Lucky Daye To Croon On His New NSFW Single “Faces”

Buddy and Lucky Daye teamed up for their steamy new single, “Faces.”

Buddy and Lucky Daye get all kinds of explicit on their new collab, “Faces.” The erotic single sees the Keep Cool labelmates talking about getting it on with their respective sexual partners, even after blowing up at each other in a huge fight. At one point, Buddy lists off all the different modes of transportation on which he and his lady friend have done the deed: “On the train or the bus/Gettin’ brain on the plane/Baby, welcome to the mile high club.”

The in-your-face (no pun intended) hook on the chorus takes the vulgarity of the song’s sexual nature up a few notches, but the breezy instrumental keeps it balanced in seductive territory, rather than aggressive. The track was produced by D’Mile, who also served as the head producer on Buddy’s Grammy-nominated album, Painted. Check out “Faces” below and let us know what you think of this duo’s first collaborative effort.

Quotable Lyrics

Hello, it’s yo fantasy
Know what you been waitin’ to see
Baby, be patient with me
‘Bout time that we get involved
Girl, you be doin’ too much
F*ck what you talkin’ ’bout
Take off your shoes in my house
We go through rounds and more rounds


New & Hottest Songs – July 2020 – Pt.6

A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie & Don Q Tap Lil Uzi Vert For “Flood My Wrist”



A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie and Don Q blow bands at the booty club with Lil Uzi Vert on “Flood My Wrist.”

Lil Uzi Vert and A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie have been doing numbers all 2020. Both Eternal Atake and Artist 2.0 have carried great moments over the months, especially with the release of a deluxe edition of the former that included a few collaborations between Uzi and A Boogie.

Today, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie and Don Q have extended the Highbridge affair to Lil Uzi Vert for their brand new single, “Flood My Wrist.” As the song suggests, there’s a lot of mentions of VVs. A Boogie and Lil Uzi Vert’s melody-driven flows hardly miss, especially over the acoustic guitar-type instrumentals, but Don Q’s gruff adds a refreshing essence of New York to the mix that helps re-invigorate their combined sound after several collaborations with just the two in recent months.

The music video is an indication alone that it’s going to get some heavy spin in the strip club, whenever it’s safe to go open.

Quotable Lyrics
In a matte black whip, like catch my drift
That’s my bitch, so she match my drip
Flood the AP, so she match my wrist
I don’t think I’ve ever seen an ass that big


Buckwild Taps Raekwon, Little Brother & More For “Fully Loaded”


Buckwild blesses fans a few days in advance for his latest project.

It was only a few days ago when Bronx legend and D.I.T.C member Buckwild unleashed the summer anthem, “Ease Up” with Little Brother. Though he had Friday set as the release date for his new project, Fully Loaded, he let the project loose a few days before planned. Laced with 10 tracks, Buckwild gets some assistance from a few elite MCs such as Little Brother, Raekwon, Nick Grant, Chuck Strangers, Meyhem Lauren, and more.

“I put this album together based off the response from the collab projects I recently released with POUNDS (Trafficante), and Flee Lord (Hand Me My Flowers),” Buck told HHNM. “I love the reception they both got, along with my recent instrumental projects, Abondoned Beats and Essential Beats. So just looking to keep the momentum going.”


Nelly Teases Remix Of Country Star Kane Brown’s “Cool Again”

Nelly is dabbling in country music once again by hopping on the remix of country star Kane Brown’s track, “Cool Again.”

Nelly is continuing on with his country music ventures by remixing country star Kane Brown’s hit, “Cool Again.” The two artists announced their forthcoming collaboration in an IGTV video after shooting the music video for the “Cool Again (Remix)” in Miami. Referring to Kane as his “lil bro,” Nelly insists that “Cool Again” is “one of the dopest tracks that I’ve done thus far.” He also reveals that Kane’s upcoming cross-genre EP, set to drop sometime later this year, will include features from the likes of Swae Lee, H.E.R. and Khalid.

During the IGTV video, Nelly gives fans a sneak peek of the remix of “Cool Again,” which sees him rapping on a new verse and harmonizing with Kane on the chorus. “Ayo cool again / I really wish that I was kickin’ back with you again,” he spits. “Checkin out the view again / Cause every time we do it / It’s like new again / It feel like new again.”

Of course, this is not the first time Nelly’s gone country. Not only does the rapper have a whole debut album called Country Grammar (albeit, it was of the hip hop genre), he also famously collaborated with country superstar Tim McGraw in 2004 on “Over and Over.” He dipped his toe back into the country game once again in 2013 when he did a remix of “Cruise” by Florida Georgia Line, whom he would go on to tour with, and he even released his own version of Thomas Rhett’s “Die A Happy Man” in 2016. The following year, he released his country/hip-hop-fused track, “Sounds Good To Me.”
