I was lonely on the ground, you were right there

Late nights, you stay on my mind, yeah (Stay on my mind, yeah)
Yeah we fight, break up, then we f*ck, make up

She ain’t the type to get revenge and give my homie sex
I told her call my phone when she nasty (When she nasty)

Ceraadi Effortlessly Blends Hip Hop & R&B On "#GRWM" EP Ft. DDG

It’s been a little over a year since Roc Nation duo Ceraadi shared their Ceraadi’s Playlist EPand fans of the sisters—Emaza and Saiyr Gibson—have been pestering them about new releases. They’ve shared singles “Favorite” and most recently “BFF,” but the ladies are ready to have their moment to demand their place in the Hip Hop-R&B scene. On Friday (October 23), Ceraadi shared their seven-track project #GRWM, an acronym that translates to Get Ready With Me. The sisters recently spoke to us about their record, describing #GRWM as a project that has “different messages for women” but also makes room for the fellas to vibe, as well.

“Hip Hop evolved—like it’s literally not like how it used to be anymore—I think people need to do the same for R&B,” said Emaza. “I definitely feel like R&B has a stronger root, though… I think people should be more open to new R&B. R&B [has been] more of a traditional genre [whereas] Hip Hop is more experimental.” Stream #GRWM by Ceraadi and listen to the two artists color outside of the R&B lines.

Tracklist

1. BFF
2. Favorite
3. She’s Ain’t Me ft. DDG

Amber Rose Talks "Demise" Of 21 Savage Romance, Says He's "Scared To Be Loved"

She’s enjoying life with her “husband” A.E. Edwards and her growing, blended family, but Amber Rose can’t erase her relationship past. The model mogul has been linked to a number of high-profile entertainers including Kanye West and 21 Savage, and of the latter, Rose explained why their relationship came to a sudden close back in 2018. The launching pad for their breakup, according to Amber Rose, came when the rapper appeared at her SlutWalk holding a sign that read “I’m a hoe, too!” The backlash for 21 Savage was heavy and Rose believes it was the beginning of their end.

“Actually that’s what he wanted to do and I think that was ultimately the demise of our relationship. I think that he was being very supportive and he was like, ‘Man I should hold a sign that says, ‘I’m a hoe too!’ Rose said. I was like, ‘That would be really great for feminism! SlutWalk, you know you’re a rapper and Black men are always looked at to be very hyper-masculine and I think this would be a great moment.’ He was like, ‘Yo, I’m down!’ I got the sign made and everything and he held it up and then after that, I think the internet just went in on him too much and it just wasn’t good after that.”

Amber Rose also spoke about 21 Savage and how he acts in a relationship. “Obviously I seen a very soft side of him but I think that he’s scared to be loved. I think he has his own trauma, his own sh*t with him. I mean, I wouldn’t have been with him for a year if he was just not loving at all.” Check out her interview below.
