Chance the Rapper Talks Kanye West Collaborative Album

(Radio.com) When Kanye West isn't working on his collaborative album with Drake or his next album, the tentatively titled Turbo Grafx 16, it sounds like he's making some strong headway on his other collaborative album with Chance the Rapper.

That project has to do with an idea West once mentioned after releasing his first three albums, The College Dropout, Late Registration and Graduation. Fans will likely remember (and Chance recounts) how West shared that after Graduation came the next phase of life aka getting a "good a job." But he never made that album. Chance said the idea has stuck with him all this time.

In a new interview he did this week (September 21), Chance detailed how far they've gotten on Good A Job. "It's definitely far from done," he said. "It's something that gets brought up in conversation every once in a while. I know 'Ye is working on something with Drake, which I haven't heard any of the songs from yet, but I'm sure it's going to be all I'm going to be listening to." Read more here.

The Game Details His Relations With The Kardashians

(Radio.com) Wendy Williams "really wanted to know," who exactly The Game was referencing when he rapped, "Then I f---- three Kardashians, hold that thought," on DJ Khaled's single "Sauce."

So the rapper did what he recently accused Meek of doing, and he named names when he appeared on The Wendy Williams Show last Tuesday (September 20).

Game admitted that he'd slept with Khloe but not Kourtney. When Williams got to Kim, he paused and wouldn't give a straight answer. The audience started shouting that of course he'd slept with Kim, so Game came back with, "I'll tell you this, Kanye is a really good friend of mine and they have really really beautiful kids and I don't want to disrespect their family."Read more here.

GG Allin Custom Emojis Released

(Audible Treats) A new set of GG Allin custom emojis have been released by Emoji Fame. The artist emoji space has previously been dominated by hip-hop and EDM acts, GG's set is one of the first punk rock available.

"Love him or hate him, GG Allin is an icon," said Gavin Rhodes, co-founder of Emoji Fame. "The process of distilling GG into emojis was equal parts revolting and exhilarating, which I think is a good way to sum up his persona. The emojis we created for him reflect that duality."

The set, jointly developed between Emoji Fame, Merle Allin, and collectibles company Aggronautix, is a rogues galley of multiple eras of both GG and The Murder Junkies; there's a bloody, jockstrap-only GG; a no-eyebrows, fascist-stached Merle, and a pretty vacant Dino the Naked Drummer. Perhaps more exciting are the everyday objects you've always wished existed in emoji form: a turkey baster, a dirty toilet, a burning bible, and many more GG delights.

"It was fun to think back and develop the imagery relating to GG and his legacy," said Merle. "These emojis are for you sick f***s who want to keep GG and his scumfuc tradition alive... Keep spreading the disease."The emoji set is available now here.

Kesha Defends Corey Feldman Following Online Hate

(Radio.com) Former child star Corey Feldman's appearance on the Today Show raised eyebrows and inspired snarky comments across the Internet, but some of the flap turned downright mean.

The backlash prompted Feldman to share a video on Facebook expressing dismay and concern with the tenor and direction of reactions, even claiming that he and his associates ("Angels") were scared to go outside. Many writers and celebrities (including his Stand by Me costar Jerry O'Connell) publicly supported Feldman through the public mockery, and Kesha has now added her voice to the mix.

"This just broke my heart," the singer wrote on Instagram. "I wanna reach out to Corey Feldmen in a kind way and say that you have to not read that s. people can be so horrible and mean online and it can BREAK you." Read more here.

Jack White Explains How Beyonce Collaboration Came Together

(Radio.com) Jack White recently released his unplugged collection Jack White Acoustic Recordings 1998-2016 and while promoting the new album he took some time to praise Beyonce and poke fun at Jimmy Fallon.

In an interview with NPR, White talked about how his collaboration for the Lemonade track 'Don't Hurt Yourself" came together. "I just talked to her and she said, 'I wanna be in a band with you,'" he said. "I said, 'Really? Well, I would love to do something.' I've always loved her voice. I mean, I think she has the kind of soul singing voice of the days of Betty Davis or Aretha Franklin. So, I was really happy to work with her. She took just sort of a sketch of a lyrical outline and turned it into the most bodacious, vicious, incredible song. I don't even know what you'd classify it as soul, rock and roll, or whatever it is. 'Don't Hurt Yourself' is incredibly intense; I'm so amazed at what she did with it."

White was less kind to Jimmy Fallon during an appearance on his show. During a discussion about guitars, Fallon said he plays a Fender Newporter, which is an acoustic guitar fitted with the neck of an electric. White joked that the instrument was 'a beginner's guitar for children."

As Fallon looked on in disbelief, White rebounded by praising the late night host's songwriting skills. "I really like your songwriting and I always have," he said as Fallon laughed nervously. "No I'm not kidding. I really do."Read more here.
