Snoop Dogg, Stephen Jackson, Bun B & More To Join Lil Wayne On “Young Money Radio”

Tons of exciting guests will be joining Lil Wayne on Young Money Radio tonight, an episode that is sure to touch on some important issues pertaining to the recent murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery, among others. Wayne announced the special guests in an Instagram post just a few hours before the episode was set to air on Apple Music. 

“BREAKING NEWS: #YoungMoneyRadio on @applemusic is LIVE again today with a special episode at 4pm PT/7pm ET!” Wayne wrote on the post, which includes photos of all six of his guests. “Today’s guests: The Honorable Mayor of Washington D.C., Snoop Dogg, Stephen Jackson, Chris Paul, Killer Mike, & Bun B.”

“We are addressing OUR issues, OUR pain and OUR needs,” he continued. “Pull up today for a REAL discussion. Luv.” Wayne recently caught some heat for his response to George Floyd’s murder by police, in which he told Fat Joe that he feels everybody needs to take some of the blame when a Black person is killed by cops. Wayne later discussed Floyd’s tragic death with Dr. Dre on last week’s episode of Young Money Radio. “That situation, it hurt my heart,” Dre said. “My heart is still aching. And it felt like that cop had his knee on all of our necks, meaning black men.”

One of Wayne’s upcoming guests, Stephen Jackson, was exceptionally close to George Floyd, even referring to him as “twin” because he considered George to be his brother.

NBA Players Vote “Yes” On Finishing The Season

Due to the Coronavirus, the NBA had to quickly correct course and figure out a new way of doing things. Over the past few months, they have been breaking their backs getting some new formats figured out and yesterday, the team owners voted on a proposal that they mostly all agreed with. Essentially, 22 teams will be headed to Orlando and it should make for a fun and interesting time.

Today, the National Basketball Players Association had its representatives vote on the proposal to see if the players were in agreement with the league. As expected, the vote passed which means the league and players will now embark on negotiations for all of the minute details that are involved.

“The Board of Player Representatives of the National Basketball Players Association (NBPA) has approved further negotiations with the NBA on a 22-team return to play scenario to restart the 2019-20 NBA season,” the statement read. “Various details remain to be negotiated and the acceptance of the scenario would still require that all parties reach agreement on all issues relevant to resuming play.”

If you’re an NBA fan, this week has been incredibly productive and you should be excited about what’s coming in the not-so-distant future. The NBA is back.

Buffalo Emergency Response Team Quits In Solidarity With Cops Who Shoved Old Man

After two Buffalo cops were suspended without pay for shoving a 75-year-old protestor to the pavement, causing him to crack his head and bleed from his ears, the city’s entire Emergency Response Team has resigned.

“Fifty-seven resigned in disgust because of the treatment of two of their members, who were simply executing orders,” said John Evans, president of the Buffalo Police Benevolent Association. The emergency squad was formed in 2016 and is deployed in instances of mass protests or riots. WGRZ confirms that while these officers have resigned from the ERT, they are, in fact, still employed.

Footage of the Buffalo police officers pushing the elderly man to the ground began circulating on Thursday night. In the disturbing, violent clip, 75-year-old Martin Gugino, a well-known activist in the city, can be seen approaching a hoard of officers. The crowd of cops continues to charge forward, as two of them pushing Martin down, causing him to hit his head. These two officers responsible, one of whom has been identified as Aaron Torgalski, were suspended immediately by Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown. According to Mayor Brown, an investigation has been launched by Buffalo Police Commissioner Byron Lockwood.

As of Friday morning, Martin has been reported to be “alert and oriented,” though still in a “serious yet stable condition.”

Two Adidas Yeezy Release Dates Delayed: Details

Kanye West was being criticized at the start of the recent protests due to his lack of a statement. Of course, those criticisms quickly turned to praise as he was seen marching alongside Black Lives Matter supporters while also donating $2 million to the movement. Now, West is making yet another respectful decision, this time in regards to his Adidas Yeezy brand.

There were two models destined to drop in June. These models were the Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 “Zyon” and the Adidas Yeezy Boost 380 “Blue Oat. As you can imagine, West has decided to postpone the release of these colorways and is now going to drop them in July pending a return to normalcy. This decision was made “out of respect to communities, supporters, and partners.”

With these kicks delayed, be sure to stay tuned for any updates as we will be sure to bring them to you. Kanye has been dropping a ton of sneakers as of late and we’re sure he will have plenty up his sleeve throughout the rest of 2020.

Also, let us know what you think of the delayed models, in the comments below. Are these shoes that would consider copping or are they easy skips?

Skai Jackson Is Putting Racists On Blast

Skai Jackson, also known as Queen of Exposing Racists these days, has commenced a full campaign against America’s most racist students. With an endless amount of receipts and a powerful following to back it up, Skai is surely doing her civic duty. 

The 18-year-old Jessie star even changed her bio on the app, listing out her occupations as, “Actress. Author. Racist exposer.” Using submissions from followers across her social media, Jackson has managed to compile the identities of over twenty racists with evidence of their alleged racism coupled with information on the schools they attend. The child star’s pinned tweet reads, “I expose racist all day, everyday, 24/7 , 10 days a week, and opened all hours.”

Most notably, the actress exposed a Texas Christian University student who refused to acknowledge Black Lives Matter and was caught in blackface. The university responded directly to the tweet, ensuring disciplinary action will be taken against the student. This is but one of many racist students Skai put on blast Friday afternoon. 

The young actress also shared that the racist students she has been exposing attempted to email her manager, sharing a fitting Nicki Minaj laughing meme with the news. 

Here are some other highlights from Skai’s exposing session.

Kodak Black Avoids 15 Years In Prison As Charges Get Dropped

Finally, Kodak Black receives some good news as it is being reported that multiple weapons charges against him have been dismissed in Florida.

The rapper’s lawyer Bradford Cohen stated that he had sat down with Miami-Date State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle for a discussion about his client and, apparently, he left a good enough impression of Kodak that several of his weapons charges have been dismissed.

According to The Blast, two charges of “possession of a firearm by a prohibited person” have been dropped. Together, they carry a maximum sentence of fifteen years in prison.

“At the end of the conversation [with the State Attorney], they were concerned that he couldn’t get into the court-ordered drug treatment with an open case and a max security prison,” said Cohen. “They agreed that the fair thing to do was to dismiss the case, so he can attend drug treatment and a lower security prison.”

This is amazing news for fans of Kodak Black. The rapper is currently serving a near-four-year sentence for falsifying information on an application to purchase firearms. He is locked up in one of the most infamous maximum-security prisons in the country, Big Sandy in Kentucky.

Hopefully, this is a start on his road to freedom.

Designer Philipp Plein To Donate To BLM If Ferrari Foregoes Lawsuit

Philipp Plein is known to be one of the biggest fashion designers out there right now and he has done a ton of work that is renowned by hip-hop artists. His designs can be seen as gaudy and all over the place. As it turns out, these designs have gotten him in trouble lately, with none other than automobile brand Ferrari.

After placing his sneakers on the hood of his own vehicle, Ferrari hit him with a $2 million lawsuit that he is trying to negotiate down to $200K. Now, Plein is speaking out against Ferrari and is urging them to drop the lawsuit. If they meet his request, he will make a donation to the Black Lives Matter movement.

“In this particular moment full of tragic events all over the world I feel completely inappropriate to fight over such irrelevant matters,” he wrote. “Neither [Ferrari] nor me REALLY need those [sic] money. Instead of continuing this useless litigation I asked my lawyer to settle the fight in order to make a contribution of [$200,000] […] I truly hope that [Ferrari] will agree … I am suggesting this solution to support the black community and not to promote myself or my brand.”

This sort of negotiation tactic is certainly bold especially with the current political climate in the country. Ferrari has yet to comment on Plein’s request.

Gunna & Lil Durk Flex Their Gucci Lambos

It looks like we’ll be getting a new music video for “Gucci Gucci” by Lil Durk and Gunna. Why else would the two rappers decide to team up to flex their luxury cars with custom Gucci paint-jobs?

Over the years, Gucci has become a go-to brand in hip-hop. Because of certain products offered by the high-end designer — *cough* that blackface sweater *cough* — it has dwindled in public support among rap fans and artists. Still, the brand is one of the largest in the world and it has managed to slowly step back to where it was before the racism scandal. 

The latest team-up from Lil Durk and Gunna, titled “Gucci Gucci,” is picking up momentum and it looks like the pair of rappers are in the midst of filming some content for it. Flexing on their respective Instagram Stories, Durkio and Wunna showed off the paint-jobs on their Lambos.

Gunna’s Urus is customed in green with a Gucci snake on the hood. As for Lil Durk, he opted for orange paint with the Gucci bee emblem in plain view.

Stay tuned for the new video, which will likely come in the next few weeks. Whose whip do you prefer?

Dwayne Johnson Reportedly Now Third Highest Pick For President

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson may just be elected the new president of the United States come November, after his impassioned “Where are You?” speech to Trump regarding the nationwide protests against police brutality appears to have put the pro-wrestler-turned-actor on the American people’s presidential radar. According to a report by Newsweek, The Rock is now the third highest choice for a presidential win, behind Donald Trump and Joe Biden.

Newsweek reports that odds aggregator site OddsChecker has calculated that 3.34% of all 2020 election bets have been placed on The Rock, following his powerful speech in support of Black Lives Matter, in which he called out Trump for his lack of leadership skills.

“Where are you?” he asked the president. “Our country is crippled and on its knees, begging to be heard and pleading for change. Where is our compassionate leader? The leader who unifies and inspires our country at our most painful time when we need it the most. The leader who steps up and takes full accountability for our country and embraces every color in it. The leader who picks our country up off its knees and says you have my word – we got this – and together, change will happen.”

“Where are you? Because we’re all here,” he continued. “Maybe one day that galvanizing leader will emerge. Either way, the process to change has already begun.” Many regarded the speech as presidential itself, which explains the sudden surge in his White House odds. However, bookmakers have him priced at +40,000, meaning he only has 0.2 percent chance of winning.

Okay, so he’s almost definitely not going to become president, but the fact that he’s even being considered by some folks is bizarre and shocking enough. But hey, if a billionaire game show host can become president, why not The Rock? (Please don’t vote for The Rock).
