Jason Deruloooooo with the tab!

Cardi B Deletes Her Twitter Account

“I’m so tired that because of y’all I’ve gotta continuously explain myself,” said Cardi, who recently reconciled with Offset after filing for divorce. “I didn’t put my divorce out there, a f—ing court clerk put it out there. And because people are making rumors up, ‘Oh, this guy has a girl pregnant,’ this and that, I have to address it.” Cardi then complained about comments her fans have left about Offset. “You guys want to be harassing this n—-.

‘Listen all y’all, It’s a Sabotage’: Beastie Boys Get Behind Biden

“The Blind Pig” centers on the 42-year-old Ann Arbor, Michigan music venue which, like so many others, is financially crushed under Trump’s watch. Airing nationally during Sunday’s Steelers – Browns NFL game on CBS, the clip is voiced by co-owner Joe Malcoun, co-owner of the Blind Pig, and wraps with the punch of “Sabotage.” “A lot of restaurants and bars that have been mainstays for years will not make it through this — this is Donald Trump’s economy,” explains Malcoun. “My only hope, for my family and this business, and my community, is that Joe Biden wins this election.” With its iconic, Spike Jonze-directed “buddy cop” music video, “Sabotage” is one of trio’s best-known works. The song was introduced to a new generation of fans through its prominent placement in ...

Benny the Butcher Flexes His Street Cred on the Star-Studded Burden of Proof: Review

The Lowdown: Despite how prolific Griselda have been in 2020, it has been a full year since we have gotten a solo Benny the Butcher project. In that time, Griselda have signed a Roc Nation management deal, dropped a group album, performed on Fallon, and tested the limits of how many solid albums a collective can drop in a short period of time. People have been waiting on Benny ever since 2019’s The Plugs I Met, an EP that brought him to a higher level of fame for its coke tales, OJ comparisons, and 38 Spesh’s lamb and stick. Benny is a man of history. The East Buffalo-bred MC has studied the game to a tee and has all of the co-signs that other rappers spend a whole career wishing they could boast. Growing up on the infamous Montana Avenue, he has spent a lifetime waiting for this moment to...

Run the Jewels Debut RTJ4 Live with Zack de la Rocha, Josh Homme, and Others: Review

GOTV Meets WFH: We’re eight months into a global pandemic and 17 days away from the strangest presidential election in modern memory, so it’s no huge shock that this year’s get-out-the-vote efforts look drastically different than past cycles. Mostly, that’s meant a shift away from performing at rallies and towards ensuring that all votes get counted safely and fairly. Those efforts have taken various shapes that conform to our current isolation, from the swing state organizing of Justin Vernon’s for Wisconsin initiative to charity Bandcamp compilations like Talk-Action=Zero Vol. 2 and Good Music to Prevent the Collapse of American Democracy to weary remote testimonials shared in a recent Pitchfork feature. Enter Run the Jewels. The Atlanta hip-hop duo of Killer Mike and El-P already owned ...

Beastie Boys License a Song for an Ad for First Time and It’s for Joe Biden: Watch

Believe it or not, but the Beastie Boys has never licensed a song for any advertisement — that is, until now. As Variety points out, the legendary New York outfit gave the green light to Joe Biden to use “Sabotage” in his latest campaign spot. The spot in question revolves around how COVID-19 has affected the live music industry, zeroing in on the collateral damage to Ann Arbor’s historic venue The Bling Pig. Founded in 1971, the club has played host to everyone from Joan Baez to Nirvana. “For 50 years, the Blind Pig has been open and crowded, but right now, it’s an empty room,” Joe Malcoun, co-owner of the Blind Pig, explains in the commercial. This is the reality of Trump’s Covid response.” Malcoun adds, “This is Donald Trump’s economy: There is no plan and you don’t know how to go ...

Megan Thee Stallion Continues Teasing Fans About New Music: ‘My Album About to Go Crazy’

Earlier this year, the “Savage” rapper teased her upcoming album during an at-home appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, noting that she used her time during quarantine in Los Angeles to record new material. “I’ve been recording. That’s the best thing about quarantine,” Meg told Fallon. “I would have been working on it anyway, but what else am I going to be doing right now. I’ve just been writing and we set up a little studio in here. So, we’re going to have new music for when we can go back outside.” The hip-hop star’s forthcoming musical project will follow her debut album, Suga, which arrived in March.
