CONWAY THE MACHINE SHARES UPDATED ‘FROM KING TO A GOD’ TRACKLIST & METHOD MAN-ASSISTED ‘LEMON’ VIDEO

Conway The Machine has altered the tracklist of his upcoming album From King To A God. Just a few days before its September 11 release date, the Griselda Records rapper revealed the update along with a video for the LP’s lead single “Lemon” featuring Method Man.

After previously being announced as an 11-song project, Conway has expanded From A King To A God to a 15-track LP. New additions include songs produced by DJ Premier, Murda Beatz and Khrysis as well as interludes from the late DJ Shay.

Conway’s album will be the first Griselda Records release since Shay passed away in August. Armani Caesar and Westside Gunn were supposed to drop their projects that month but postponed the LPs following their mentor’s death.

AFTER 20 SEASONS FILLED WITH KANYE WEST, FRENCH MONTANA & TYGA CAMEOS, ‘KEEPING UP WITH THE KARDASHIANS’ IS ENDING

After 20 Seasons Filled With Kanye West, French Montana & Tyga Cameos, 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' Is Ending

It’s been a long, wildly successful run, but Keeping Up With The Kardashians (KUWTK) is coming to an end.

In an Instagram post on Tuesday (September 8), Kim Kardashian announced the reality show starring herself and sisters Khloe Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian, Kylie Jenner and Kendall Jenner will air its 20th and final season in early 2021.

“It is with heavy hearts that we’ve made the difficult decision as a family to say goodbye to Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” she wrote. “After what will be 14 years, 20 seasons, hundreds of episodes and numerous spin-off shows, we are beyond grateful to all of you who’ve watched us for all of these years – through the good times, the bad times, the happiness, the tears, and the many relationships and children. We’ll forever cherish the wonderful memories and countless people we’ve met along the way.”

 

The decision to end the long-running show comes amid Kardashian’s husband Kanye West having a public battle with his mental health, during which Kardashian asked fans for “compassion and empathy” as they navigate through it.

“Those that understand mental illness or even compulsive behavior know that the family is powerless unless the member is a minor,” Kim wrote on her Instagram Story in July amid rumors she was going to divorce him for his erratic behavior. “People who are unaware or far removed from this experience can be judgmental and not understand that the individual themselves have to engage in the process of getting help no matter how hard family and friends try.”

She show premiered on E! in 2007, going on to become the network’s highest-rated show, bringing in an average of 1.9 million total viewers an episode at its peak. Over the course of 14 years, rappers like Tyga (when he dated Kylie), French Montana (when he dated Khloe) and Kanye have appeared on the show through their relationships with the famous sisters, though Kylie Jenner’s on-again/off-again boyfriend Travis Scott has opted not to appear on camera.

Like Scott, Kanye opted to remain mainly off-camera since he began dating Kardashian in 2012, but he’s become a regular since season 16.

“He doesn’t like to film everything,” Kardashian told the Hollywood Reporter in 2017. “It’s not his show.”

KUTWK has also produced numerous spin-offs since its years on air including Khloe & Lamar when Khloe was married to NBA star Lamar Odom and Rob & Chyna, when rarely-seen Kardashian brother Rob was dating Blac Chyna.

Before the final season, KUWTK will premiere season 19 on September 17. Revisit some of French, Ye and Tyga’s moments on the show below.

DaBaby & Roddy Ricch's 'ROCKSTAR,' Megan Thee Stallion's 'Savage (Remix)' & More Hit Billboard's Top 10 Songs Of Summer 2020

Hip Hop and R&B dominated Billboard’s Songs of Summer chart in 2020. DaBaby and Roddy Ricch’s “ROCKSTAR” collaboration led the way at No. 1 in a Top 10 featuring Megan Thee Stallion, The Weeknd, Doja Cat, Nicki Minaj and more.

According to Billboard, its annual Songs of the Summer chart calculates “the cumulative performance on the weekly streaming, airplay and sales-based Billboard Hot 100 chart from Memorial Day to Labor Day.” For 2020, this time period lasted from May 25 to September 7. Billboard tracked 15 weeks starting from the chart dated June 6 to the chart dated September 12.

DaBaby scored two entries in the Top 5, topping the chart with the aforementioned “ROCKSTAR” and landing at No. 3 with his guest appearance on Jack Harlow’s posse cut “WHAT’S POPPIN (Remix).” Megan also notched two spots in The Top 10 with her Beyoncé-assisted “Savage (Remix)” (No. 4) and her Cardi B collaboration “WAP” (No. 8).

SAINt JHN’s “Roses” managed to reach No. 5 despite originally being released in 2016. Post Malone’s 2019 single “Circles” also carried over into summer 2020, settling in at No. 9.

DABABY DISCUSSES STUDYING 50 CENT & RAP’S 2020 MVP RACE

Pop star Harry Styles was the lone artist who isn’t a rapper or R&B singer to secure a spot in the Top 10. The One Direction member’s “Watermelon Sugar” and “Adore You” made the cut at No. 6 and No. 10, respectively.

‘THE FRESH PRINCE’ DRAMA REBOOT GETS ‘UNPRECEDENTED’ TWO-SEASON ORDER FROM PEACOCK

'The Fresh Prince' Drama Reboot Gets 'Unprecedented' Two-Season Order From Peacock

The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air drama reboot is heading to Peacock. According to Entertainment Weekly, the series has landed a two-season order at NBCUniversal’s new streaming service Peacock.

Will Smith, who played The Fresh Prince on the beloved 90’s sitcom and will serve as executive producer on the reboot, announced the news in a conversation with showrunner Chris Collins (The Wire) and director-writer Morgan Cooper, whose March 2019 viral video inspired the Bel-Air update.

In the clip, Smith is clearly shocked by the “unprecedented” deal and noted he’s never seen anything like this in his decades-long career.

The show is set in modern-day America and will be a “serialized one-hour dramatic analogue of the ’90s sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air that leans into the original premise: Will’s complicated journey from the streets of West Philadelphia to the gated mansions of Bel-Air.

WILL SMITH & ‘FRESH PRINCE’ CAST BRING 30TH ANNIVERSARY TO HBO MAX

“With a reimagined vision, Bel-Air will dive deeper into the inherent conflicts, emotions and biases that were impossible to fully explore in a 30-minute sitcom format, while still delivering swagger and nods to the original show.”

The original Fresh Prince cast — sans the late James Avery (Uncle Phil) and disgruntled actress Janet Hubert (OG Aunt Viv) — is scheduled to reunite for a 30th anniversary special on HBO Max around Thanksgiving. In the meantime, check out the trailer for the proposed series below.

MATHEW KNOWLES ASKS FANS TO CHOOSE BETWEEN BEYONCÉ & DESTINY’S CHILD

Mathew Knowles Asks Fans To Choose Between Beyoncé & Destiny's Child

Mathew Knowles has asked fans to do the impossible.

Apparently waking up and feeling like shaking the table on Tuesday (September 8), Solange and Beyoncé’s daddy tasked his followers with choosing between a free front row ticket to a Destiny’s Child show or one of Bey’s.

“If you were given a ticket on the front row today and you had to pick which concert you would attend…Knowing you love both, which concert would you attend Beyoncé or Destiny’s Child?” he wrote.

 

Naturally, fans were divided between Knowles’ superstar daughter and one of the best-selling girl groups of all time – but even more so upset at him for asking such a divisive question.

“It’s like he doesn’t want his allowance anymore,” read one comment on The Shade Room.

“It’s ok Bey. My daddy stay embarrassing me too,” another wrote with a side-eye emoji.

Knowles began managing Destiny’s Child when they were formed in 1996, then-comprised of Bey, Kelly Rowland, and former members LaTavia Roberson and LeToya Luckett. After two platinum-selling albums and multiple No. 1 singles, Roberson and Luckett were replaced by Michelle Williams and Farrah Franklin in 2000. Franklin’s time with the group was short-lived, however. She quit after five months and Destiny’s Child has remained a trio since.

MATHEW KNOWLES CLAIMS JAGGED EDGE SEXUALLY HARASSED TEENAGE BEYONCÉ & KELLY ROWLAND

When Bey launched her solo career in 2003, Knowles managed her up through 2011, before Bey announced she was no longer working with him in that capacity. The announcement came on the heels of his divorce from Beyoncé’s mother Tina, and three years after Live Nation accused Knowles of stealing from his daughter’s “I Am…” tour. Live Nation won the matter in court.

His relationship with Beyoncé has been seemingly rocky since, though it appears things have improved in recent years. Knowles even appeared in the video for “Daddy Lessons” off her 2016 Lemonade album, where he was seen playing with Bey and JAY-Z’s daughter, Blue Ivy.

This Destiny’s Child Instagram post might keep him from another video shoot invite for a while, though.
