"Ladies and gentlemen, we have a New York legend on the phone!" Joe Budden told his listeners on his most recent episode of his podcast. The talk show host and his crew got the opportunity to chat with Max B as the Harlem MC serves out his sentence behind bars. We watched as throughout 2019 Max B has been slowly rolling out his new project, and recently the rapper announced that his House Money EP drops in two weeks on December 6. The album includes features from heavyweights including Jadakiss, Cam'ron, Dave East, A$AP Ferg, French Montana, and A Boogie wit Da Hoodie.

It's rumored that Max B will be a free man in 2021 after his 75-year sentence for murder was reduced, and the rapper is hoping to show the industry that he's a changed man. He's maintained respect by his fellow rap industry professionals and told The Joe Budden Podcast what he has on the horizon.

“I’m grinding just trying to make some sh*t out of nothing, you heard,” he said. "I'm tryin' to do what it do, man. Make the best out of my situation and just make somethin' outta nothin'...I'm doin' the unthinkable though." When asked how he's been able to "grind" while behind bars, Max let it be known that "I'm one of a kind."

"I'm not there in the physical but like I told you before I left: The wave never die. The water never goes nowhere. This motherf*ckin' earth is 75 percent water. I’m the water. I ain't goin' nowhere. I'm unstoppable... My sh*t is different." Listen to his brief chat with The Joe Budden Podcast around the 1:08:00 mark below.

For 35 years now, Jordan Brand has been coming out with various new colorways and models of the Air Jordan 1. While it may not be as popular as the High OG, the Mid version of the AJ1 has remained quite popular amongst fans, especially when you consider how it's a cheaper alternative to the former. Jordan Brand has been delivering fire new colorways of the Air Jordan 1 Mid over the years and as you can imagine, there are many more on the way.

Thanks to the sneaker Instagram account @hanzuying, we now have a look at the Air Jordan 1 Mid "Black Satin" which brings premium materials to the shoe. The toe box, cuff, and Nike swoosh are all satin silver while the overlays are black. From there, the tongue and side panels are white which creates a nice contrast and a greyscale type sneaker.

Based on the information above, it seems as though this model will be dropping sometime in December of this year for $110 USD. If you're in the market for an affordable and clean version of the Air Jordan 1 Mid, then this might be the shoe for you.

Let us know in the comments below what you think and whether or not you plan on copping.


Patti LaBelle Says Music Today Lacks "Substance": "There's Still Some Growth"

For those of you who may just be diehard The Masked Singer fans, we're dropping a spoiler here: Patti LaBelle was eliminated from the show. The legendary singer donned a flower costume and belted out songs for the judges, but it wasn't like she was fooling anyone. Ms. Patti has one of the most distinctive, recognizable voices in the music industry, and while fans were sad to see her go, they were happy she took a chance and appeared on the show.

Following her elimination, Patti chatted with The Hollywood Reporter not only aboutThe Masked Singer but the current state of music. She agreed that the scene has changed drastically in the last 10, 20 years, adding "I've been in it for how long? Sixty years performing, and I see changes all the time. I never know if we're going to ever go back to when real music was real music. Because a lot of things today, they're very — if a song, the title is 'Get It Now' or something, you're going to hear 'get it now' the whole record, no substance. So there's still some growth. And I hope that it goes back to substance."

After saying that songwriting has taken a hit, the singer also stated that there are vocalists who are thought to be talented who use so much processing in their music. "Because some of them can't really sing," she stated. "I'm not saying it to knock anyone because that's their hustle. And if you can get by with 'Get It Now' and say it over and over and over and the record sells, then you did your job. But I'm still looking for substance." Do you agree with Patti?


Ebro Darden Wants To Know: "Who Is The Best Love Poem Rapper Of All Time?"

Read more >>>

While rap is often affiliated with gang culture, hypersexuality, and violence, the beloved genre has birthed quite a few love songs. There are plenty of rappers who use their skills with a pen and a mic to craft hits that have been played at wedding receptions and behind closed doors in the bedroom, but recently, Ebro Darden posed an interesting question to his listeners on the topic.

"Who is the best love poem rapper of all time?" Ebro asked on his show. "The rapper who's made the most love raps of all time." The answers started flowing in including Common and Wale. Of the latter, co-host Peter Rosenberg stated that Wale "drops monster love poem hits." Common seemed to be a favorite, but they couldn't last long in this conversation without mentioning LL Cool J.

"Common got so many love songs, man," Ebro said. Then, Fabolous's name was thrown into the mix, but Ebro didn't agree with that one. Unfortunately, they didn't come to a clear conclusion of who should take the title, but they did go on a bit of a hilarious tangent about LL Cool J and why many of his love tracks are just a way for him to hate on hard-working men trying to take care of their women. Watch below and weigh in with your candidates.

Cody Simpson Subtly Denies Miley Cyrus Breakup Rumours

Read more >>>

Cody Simpson took to Instagram on Wednesday to shut down the breakup rumours about him and girlfriend, Miley Cyrus. On his story, the Australian singer posted a screenshot of the image currently occupying his phone background—an adorable throwback photo of a young Miley grinning at the camera. Rumours started to spread that the pair had split earlier this week, but in this indirect yet not-so-subtle manner, Cody is telling the world that he and Miley are still very much involved.

The two artists have been involved for a mere two months, but their relationship has had people talking since day one. Shortly after splitting from husband Liam Hemsworth in July after less than a year of marriage, Miley was spotted kissing Brody Jenner's ex Kaitlynn Carter in Italy. The two didn't last long, though, but Miley quickly moved on as she was spotted kissing Cody in early October. Since this public display of affection, for which Miley defended herself against, Miley and Cody have been very open about their relationship; when Miley was hospitalized for tonsillitis, she  posted an adorable video of Cody serenading her, and they were spotted making out before going to Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios last month with friends. These spottings of the two lovebirds will only get more frequent, it seems, since Cody has made it clear that he only has eyes for Miley.

Aside from Chance singing Shia's praises for his skills on the mic, Chance also speaks on the "movement" that his dear friend and fellow Chi-Town native Kanye West has launched with Sunday Services. Additionally, Chance shares tidbits of Chicago's best eateries that not many tourists know about. All the while, the rapper does all he can to alleviate the rising temperatures brought on by hot sauces that not many people brave to try. Watch Chance scream in pain and complain of about his throat—and everything else—burning, below.
