Floyd Mayweather is feeling extra petty today and Conor McGregor is on his mind.
At the moment Mayweather is winning this ongoing beef between the fight fighters on the mere fact that he defeated McGregor in an actual fight last year and bank hundreds of millions of dollars on top of it. There are some fresh talks about a followup fight but this time it could be an MMA fight which Conor McGregor is advocating for. It’s still not clear if the boxing legend will come back out of retirement for that one, perhaps he will if the money is right.
On Wednesday, Floyd Mayweather tweeted a rumored story about Conor McGregor having issues with some Irish cartels and that there may be a hit out on his head. According to the reporting, McGregor allegedly punched a member of the Irish Cartel sometime last year and there is a hit out on his head for almost a million euros. “I already f***ed you up in 2017 now they about to f*** you up in 2018. You’re about to start your new year off with a bang,” the boxer tweeted.
McGregor has since responded to the tweet saying, “I am the cartel.” These two fighters should take this beef off of social media and into the ring, perhaps MMA style this time.
Bob Marley’s grandson Skip Marley joins the lineup of this year’s Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.
Skip is billed for day one of the annual music festival which usually pulls a massive crowd to Coachella Valley in mid-April. This show is set to take place on the weekend’s of April 13th to 15th and 20th to 22nd. This year’s Coachella is headline by Eminem, Beyonce, and hot new rapper Cardi B. Last year Beyonce pulled out of the event because of her pregnancy, but her fans will get a chance to see her in action for the first time in over a year.
Skip Marley had a great had a great year last year with a few solo hits as well as a guest spot on Katy Perry’s song “Chained To The Rhythm. Last year he released solo singles like “Lions” and “Calm” down which were all well received.
Last year, the single “Lion” was featured in a controversial Pepsi advertisement which was pulled by the company after getting backlash on social media. Some fans accused Pepsi of being toned deaf amidst a period of heightened racial tension between the police force and African Americans. Kendell Jenner also starred in the same ad and she too received some backlash.
G-Eazy is the latest celebrity to cut ties with H&M amidst racist ad that went viral.
The fashion brand has been getting some heat on social media since yesterday after it posted an ad on social media that wrecks of racism. Several celebrities who have been doing business with H&M have since cut ties including The Weeknd, who announced in a scathing tweet that he will immediately end his partnership with the brand. G-Eazy announced on Instagram on Wednesday that he too will end his partnership.
“Over the past months I was genuinely excited about launching my upcoming line and collaboration with @HM… Unfortunately, after seeing the disturbing image yesterday, my excitement over our global campaign quickly evaporated, and I’ve decided at this time our partnership needs to end,” Eazy wrote. The rapper added that he cannot allow his name to be associated with H&M as the brand quickly becomes toxic to any celebrity that does business with the company.
“I can’t allow for my name and brand to be associated with a company that could let this happen. I hope that this situation will serve as the wake up call that H&M and other companies need to get on track and become racially and culturally aware, as well as more diverse at every level,” he added.
H&M has since released a statement apologizing for the ad while vowing to get to the bottom of what happened.
Over the past months I was genuinely excited about launching my upcoming line and collaboration with @HM… Unfortunately, after seeing the disturbing image yesterday, my excitement over our global campaign quickly evaporated, and I've decided at this time our partnership needs to end. Whether an oblivious oversight or not, it's truly sad and disturbing that in 2018, something so racially and culturally insensitive could pass by the eyes of so many (stylist, photographer, creative and marketing teams) and be deemed acceptable. I can't allow for my name and brand to be associated with a company that could let this happen. I hope that this situation will serve as the wake up call that H&M and other companies need to get on track and become racially and culturally aware, as well as more diverse at every level.
Kevin Gates is back home and already he is working on some new music.
The number one rule for rappers getting out of prison is to strike while the iron is hot. Kevin Gates has been trending on Twitter since his release from prison on Wednesday so what better time to drop some new music. Akademiks posted a video showing the Baton Rouge rapper at his home with some friends listening to some unreleased music.
Kevin Gates also posted a simple message for his fans on Instagram saying, “I’m him.” His fans on Twitter have been celebrating his return home but it’s still not clear when we will get some new music. Gates was sentenced to 30 months in prison for a gun charge in Illinois last year but only served 9 before he was released on parole. As a condition of his probation, he cannot be in possession of any firearm and music be supervised at all times.
At the very least we can expect an album from the Louisiana rapper this year now that he is free to hit the studio.
Dr. Dre is reportedly working on new music and plans to revive his shelved album Detox.
The last time that we heard anything about Detox was back in 2015 when Dr. Dre officially announced that the long-delayed concept album is dead, meaning it will never see the light of day. Now it’s 2018 and there are fresh reporting about the nearly two-decade old project. On Tuesday, ESPN reporter Chris Haynes reported on Twitter that he spoke directly to the legendary producer/rapper about the shelved album and he confirmed that he is working on a couple new songs.
That is some great news for Dre’s fans considering that he might have fans now who weren’t even born yet when he released his last album. It appears that Dr. Dre and his longtime friend and business partner, Jimmy Iovine, were at the Golden State Warriors practice yesterday when Haynes asked him about the album. “I asked Dr. Dre if Detox is permanently shelved and he replied, “I’m working on a couple songs right now. We’ll see,’” Haynes tweeted.
Here is a bit of a history about Detox. Dr. Dre first announced the album in 2002 and in the years following his announcement there have been numerous delays. It appears that he wasn’t too happy with the final product and constantly revamps it until 2015 he decided to leave it on his hard drive possibly. In 2009, Dre played the first official single in a Dr. Pepper commercial and announced that he would be dropping the project in 2010.
I asked Dr. Dre if Detox is permanently shelved and he replied, “I’m working on a couple songs right now. We’ll see.”

Fast forward to 2010 we got an announcement from both Dre and Jimmy Iovine that “Under Pressure” featuring JAY-Z will be the first official single off Detox. That year they dropped two more singles, “I Need A Doctor” featuring Eminem and Skylars Grey and “Kush.” In 2011, a few songs were leaked online including a song titled “Syllables featuring 50 Cent, Eminem, and JAY-Z. Between 2011 and 2014 a few songs popped up that were linked to Detox but was never confirmed. In 2011, 50 Cent did an interview where he said, the project might just be released as an EP. In 2014, Ice Cube said in an interview that the album would be released in August that year but that never happened.
The following year, Dr. Dre officially announced that Detox is dead because he just doesn’t like it. Seems he is now reviving the project.
