Cardi B's Rescheduled Concert Ticket Sales Skyrocket

Read more >>>

Recent news saw Cardi B having to cancel her headline gig at the 92Q Spring Bling Festival in Baltimore tomorrow, due to cosmetic surgery complications. Organizers of the event were worried there would be a backlash and the rescheduled show wouldn't sell, but TMZ reports that it's actually done the exact opposite: it's managed to produce a skyrocket in ticket sales!

The "Money" rapper reported that she had to postpone her appearance so that she could properly recover from her recent liposuction and breast augmentation at the encouragement of her doctors. Cardi admittedly had been pushing herself to the limit to honor her commitments, despite having work done, telling a Memphis crowd on May 5 that she should have canceled because "moving too much is going to f*** up my lipo."

"But bitch, I’m still gonna get my motherf**king money back, let’s go!” she said, before continuing to perform a couple of shows after that. She finally had to postpone her Friday show though, but it seems that the whole ordeal has actually been a blessing in disguise. Event organizers quickly announced a September 8 makeup date, and it's generated way more buzz, with 5,600 tickets being sold following the cancellation. So it's looking like the show's not going to be having any problem selling out its 13k capacity venue.


Suge Knight's Son Says Tupac Is Dead But Still Releasing New Music

Read more >>>

The circumstances regarding Tupac Shakur's death are still so cloudy. We don't really know what happened on the last night of his life and we probably never will. Because of that, people have always come through with conspiracy theories about who killed the rap superstar and whether or not he's actually gone. Some popular theories include the fact that Suge Knight was his murderer and others state that Pac is actually still alive, living in Cuba or Malaysia. Several months ago, those statements were furthered when Suge Knight's own son claimed that Pac was still breathing, camping out in Malaysia and planning to drop an album. After giving the situation some thought, Suge Knight Jr. has switched up and he now says that Pac is deceased but that music is still on the way.

During a new interview with Los Angeles' Real 92.3 radio crew, Suge's son spoke about the New Death Row and the lessons he learned from his dad. Speaking on his previous claims about Tupac, Knight Jr. kept his lips sealed but he did note that he believes Pac actually did die on that fateful night and that an unreleased album is still in the works. 

After being asked if unreleased music is on the way from Tupac, the younger Suge simply said, "correct." Elsewhere in the interview, he reveals that he no longer believes Pac is living in Malaysia. Watch the full clip below where the Tupac conversation begins at the 15-minute mark.

Blake Griffin Dog Attack Victim Files Motion To Dismiss Lawsuit: Report

Read more >>>

Blake Griffin was in the midst of being sued back in February after an alleged incident in June where his dog attacked a 64-year-old man who was eating at A Votre Sante in Los Angeles. Emmanuel Aframian claims that he was eating and minding his own business when all of a sudden, the dog lunged at him in a vicious attack. During the time of the lawsuit, Aframian said that he had endured “disabling and permanent” all while claiming that the dog had a past of being violent towards people.

According to The Blast, Aframian filed a request to have his lawsuit against the Detroit Pistons star dismissed. It's an interesting development considering Aframian appeared to be adamant about his charges in February. As of right now, it's unclear as to whether or not Griffin settled with Aframian out of court. If they did, that is certainly the reason why this lawsuit would be dismissed so suddenly.

Griffin has been keeping a low profile since being swept from the playoffs against the Milwaukee Bucks. The Pistons big man was recently asked about future NBA draft pick Zion Williamson, where he explained how the Duke star could be one of the best dunkers to ever play the game.

Read more >>>

Atlanta Hawks rookie point guard Trae Young had a sensational first season in the NBA, averaging 19.1 points, 8.1 assists and 3.7 steals per game en route to becoming a finalist for the 2018-19 Rookie of the Year Award. Young was also a unanimous selection for the All-Rookie First Team along with the player he was traded for on draft night, Luka Doncic.

Although Doncic is expected to take home the ROY hardware next month, Quavo has made it clear where he stands on the matter: "Young Rookie of the Year in MY books!" In celebration of Young's stellar first season, Quavo also hooked up the 20-year old star with a diamond "Ice Trae" chain. 

While Quavo has already declared Young the Rookie of the Year, the NBA will officially announce the winner at the third annual NBA Awards on June 24. Shaquille O'Neal has signed on to host the event.

In addition to the ROY Award, the NBA Awards will also include: Most Valuable Player, Defensive Player of the Year, Sixth Man Award, Most Improved Player, Coach of the Year, Basketball Executive of the Year, Sportsmanship Award, Teammate of the Year, All-Rookie Team, All-Defensive Team, and NBA Cares Community Assist Award.


Ed Sheeran Puts On For The Missus In Chance The Rapper & PnB Rock Assisted "Cross Me"

Read more >>>

Despite a few attempted efforts, chivalry has never officially died. Such principles lay the groundwork for Ed Sheeran, Chance The Rapper, and PnB Rock's new collaboration "Cross Me," the newest single from Sheeran's upcoming No. 6 Collaborations album. Available in select international markets, "Cross Me" picks up where the Justin Bieber-assisted "I Don't Care" left off, serving an uptempo, bouncy pop foundation for each party to declare their undying loyalty. The premise is simple. If one crosses the beloved of either contributing party, expect varying degrees of wrath.

Given Chano's own perception as one of hip-hop's hopelessly romantic men of integrity, it's no wonder he contributed ably to Sheeran's cause. Though many fans across the globe pine for Big Ed and his guitar-strumming ways, his intentions remain pure. Expect no wavering on his, nor Chano's behalf; as for PnB, the man will abide by his own rules, though he may very well take up words should one of the homie's come calling. What do you think of this one? Sound off below.

Quotable Lyrics

Is she ain't messin' with no other man
No, what she not gon' do
Is stand there, cross for me, like you got kung-fu
Dead-scared, cross-armed, runnin' your mouth like a faucet


Air Jordan 1 Mid Dropping In Eclectic Glow In The Dark Model: Photos

Read more >>>

While it may not be the most popular Jordan Brand silhouette, the Air Jordan 1 Mid has certainly made a name for itself as the more inexpensive little brother to the Air Jordan 1 High OG. It seems like every few days or so there is a brand new colorway of the Mid that is revealed with plenty of stock hitting retailers. These colorways are typically very safe and are exactly what you would expect from a Jordan. In some new images thanks to the Instagram account @hanzuying, it looks like Jordan Brand is trying something new as they bring the glow in the dark vibes to the shoe.

Just looking at the upper, you can tell this is a different look for the shoe. The toe box and side panels consist of black leather, while red appears on the back heel and different shades of green appear on the overlays and the cuff. As for the Nike swoosh, it looks as though it is made out of three stacked layers of stitching as opposed to a full-on leather swoosh. Finally, there is a green outsole that lights up when put in the dark. 

There is no release date for this shoe just yet so stay tuned for any information leading up to the release.


Rihanna Debuts Her Luxury Fenty Collection In Paris

Read more >>>

Two days after posting the brand's first promo video on Instagram, Rihanna's anticipated luxury partnership with LVMH, Fentymakes its debut in Paris. 

The launch took place in a pop-up boutique, with guests including Balmain's Olivier Rousteing and Dior's Maria Grazia Chiuri. Sarah Harris, from British Voguewrote of the launch event, noting that it was initially delayed by an hour, then delayed again, until ultimately kicking off three hours after the previously announced start time. However, this understandably appeared to bother no one in attendance, which Harris claimed was a sign that Rihanna has "another hit on her hands." (The video below seems to show that Rih happens to think so too.)

The mogul sat down with T Magazine last week, to offer an early glimpse at the line Rihanna explained how she had taken a  "very hands-on" approach to the partnership, as she does with all her projects. "I already had a relationship with [LVMH] after the Versailles campaign and the makeup line, so they extended the offer to me and it was a no-brainer because LVMH is a machine," she said.

The general public can get their hands on the new Fenty pieces starting May 29 online, with the next drop scheduled for late June. For a proper look at the full collection, Vogue's got you covered.
