Legend shot down the report via Twitter, writing, "This story is untrue. We use a trusted car service and they did not rob me. Our Delta greeter made a mistake and left a bag on the cart.
"The bag was taken because it was left unattended. The airport police caught the person who took it (on video) and retrieved my bag. Thanks to the airport police/security. One could say it's been 'handled'." Read morehere.
Through the drama, Drake has been ambivalent about Kanye's temperamental brilliance: Despite continued efforts to collaborate, he's been on the receiving end of some bitter public remarks.
"I think everybody has their own little things going on," Drake said in a web radio interview. "I'm not really sure what he's referring to half the time, because in the same breath, I went from being ' like working on a project with him, to him sorta publicly sh–ing on me and DJ Khaled for being on the radio too much."
The Canadian rapper discussed balancing compassion for West's ordeal with personal and professional boundaries. "I don't really even understand the point you're trying to make but whatever it is that you're going through, I accept it, I don't respect it at all," he said. "You know, because I feel like me and Khaled are just good people. I'm not sure why we're the target of your choice that you made that night. And yeah I accept what you're going through, and I just go and continue working on my own thing." Read morehere.
"Who else would I be thinking about?" he said. 'And by the way, it's a testament to the fact that I have not dated a lot of people in the last five, six years. That was my only relationship. So it's like, give me this, people."
When he spoke to Rolling Stone earlier this year about the album, he described "Still Feel Like Your Man" as his "little engine that could. The title itself had lyrics blowing out of it from every corner'[I wrote it] almost like a treatment for a movie." Read morehere.
The Australian rapper's new music video for the single features a variety of characters in various settings, dancing, twerking, and yes, bouncing along with the upbeat tune.
Other visuals include Azalea rapping from a chair, shots of a heavily tattooed man, dudes performing stunts on dirt bikes, and, well, more bouncing bottoms. Watch the videohere.
Carey and Nicki Minaj have been beefing since Carey mentioned on American Idol that Minaj has a distinct lack of number one hits. Meanwhile, Minaj has been on Remy Ma's blacklist ever since she badmouthed her song "Make Love."
So, a collaboration between Carey and Remy Ma seemed like a golden opportunity to let the sparks fly. But while the shade they're throwing at the veteran diva is undeniable, the song is pretty straightforward--at least at first. 'You go hard for them, you don't ever ever wanna be apart from them," Remy raps. After that, it's up to the listener to interpret what she means: 'You hold them soft and still go hard for them, but instead of lookin' at how far we've come I'm regrettin' it, damn, are you done?"Listen to the "I Don't" remixhere.
Some of those guests aren't huge surprises, as Mike dropped "Nothing Is Promised" (featuring Rihanna), "Come Down" (featuring Chief Keef and Rae Sremmurd), "Razzle Dazzle" (featuring Future) and "Perfect Pint" (featuring Kendrick Lamar, Gucci Mane and Rae Sremmurd) ahead of the mixtape's release.
In any case, the rapper and producer flexes his phone book on Ransom 2, and its 17 tracks feature one A-list collaborator after another. Who's missing? Drake, Nicki Minaj, Kanye West, Jay Z, Meek Mill and the ascendant Remy Ma…but maybe they're on his list for Ransom 3. Listen to the full mixtapehere.
To be fair, the song's intro does have a childlike instrumental quality to it. Speaking with the Liverpool Echo, Nye explained that Gracie was born with hip dysplasia and must wear a corrective device all the time. Although she's been suited with the device since she was two-weeks-old, sometimes it upsets her, hence the crying.
But at least now her parents have a secret weapon in their back pocket. "She loves all [Sheeran's] songs," Nye said, "but 'Shape of You' and 'Perfect' from his new album seem to be her favorites. I think she's his youngest fan!" (via NME). Read morehere.
PartyNextDoor inserts himself from the very get-go, dropping a slick verse before handing it over to Mars for the official "start." "Let's hit Miami, Biscayne / Might let you change your name (for the night)/ Why why why?/ So you can act a fool for a night/ Oh, that's right/ Girl, I know the tricks/ Girl, I know the tricks/ But that happen to be the s— I like," he sings in the opening seconds.
Throughout the remix, PartyNextDoor harmonizes with Mars to thicken the vocal tracks and take the entire affair toward Boyz II Men territory. Besides adding his flare to Mars' hit, the Canadian rapper most recently collaborated with Drake on "Since Way Back" off More Life. Listenhere.
Our protagonist, played by Scott, is going about his life in Detroit--seeing neighbors, arguing with his girlfriend who warns, "Your ego's gonna get you in trouble." Then suddenly, a car accident lands him in the hospital and he's reborn as an android.
It's a high-concept narrative with plenty of ambiguity, but the gorgeous visuals and heavy themes provide a new slant on the crumbling Rust Belt experience. Read morehere.
In addition, the shoe includes Gallagher's birthday on the inside, so owners will never forget when to wish him a happy birthday on Facebook. The shoe was modeled after the Garwen SPZL trainers and is being issued as part of a 2017 spring SPEZIAL collection along with a shoe that features reggae singer Chronixx.
In other Gallagher news, the singer recently performed with Savages' Jehnny Beth on "We Got the Power," a song for the new Gorillaz album Humanz. This is significant due to the perceived long-lasting rivalry between Oasis and Blur, the band Gorillaz frontman Damon Albarn rose to fame in during the '90s.Read morehere.
The new track finds the rappers trading verses seamlessly. The Fate of the Furious soundtrack is scheduled to hit stores April 14th, the same day the film opens in theaters.
'Gang Up' follows three previously released singles from the soundtrack; "Good Life" from G-Eazy and Kehlani, "Hey Ma" from J Balvin and Camila Cabello, and "Go Off" from Lil Uzi Vert, Quavo and Travis Scott. Listen to "Gang Up"here.
Chance visited a third grade class while their teacher shared what they'd been learning. "Pult up for Career Day and was invited to sit in on Ms. Jackson's class #supportCPS," he wrote on Instagram.
"We're very proud," Ms. Jackson told her classroom's visitors. "We've been learning division, multiplication and fractions in the span of two months, and so that is a lot but we're very proud of our math."
She then asked if visitors wanted to see the students' "Math Talk." Chance gave an enthusiastic response, and the kids were only too happy to comply, showing off how they switched from their afternoon activities to math time. Read morehere.
"I need your body in ways that you don't understand/ But I'm losing my patience cuz we've been going over and over again/ Girl, I just want to take you home and get right to it," he sings in the song's intro.
Once things move into the bedroom, Brown doesn't play coy on "Privacy." Shortly after the two-minute mark, he switches gears from singing to rapping and begins listing off all the things he and his lady will do to one another. Earmuffs, children. Listen to "Privacy"here.
The song references everything from The Lion King to Drake's new playlist project More Life. "Mustafa, I been feeling like Mustafa/ My son is Simba, n—–," he raps with his machine gun sound effects punctuating the track.
Desiigner questions everyone trying to take advantage of his fame on the chorus. "You say you got it/ You say you know me/ How you get it, how you got it?/ You say you 'bout it/ You say you know me/ How I get it out the project?" Desiigner sings. When he invokes the title, it's hard to distinguish his voice from Future's. Incidentally, for anyone drawing parallels between the two, Future took aim at Desiigner on "Zoom" off his self-titled album. Listen to the explicit "Holy Ghost"here.
"They Don't Know" was written for Aldean by Kurt Allison, Jaron Boyer and Josh Mirenda, but it expresses a sentiment that Aldean has felt often when seeing how rural people are portrayed in the media.
Aldean tells Radio.com, "Being where I'm from in Georgia, growing up on the outskirts of Macon, you have people that — for lack of a better term — come from [air quotes] 'the big city,' they have a tendency to sort of look down on things that they really don't understand and don't know. I think that happens a lot."
He points to films — which are rarely directed or produced by people from rural communities — as a prime example. "You look at an L.A. movie producer who is directing a movie about small towns, and it's like [you see] every stereotype you could imagine. Why? Because they don't understand. They've never lived in those places; they've never experienced those things. People that look down on something or frown upon something they really don't understand or don't know about it. And to me, the song says it perfectly, and I can relate to that just growing up in Georgia where I did." Read morehere.
