NLE Choppa Says Famous Dex's Label Needs To Get Him Help

NLE Choppa Chakra has been spitting nothing but faxx since his recent spiritual awakening. Some of it has surrounded anti-vaccine conspiracy theories and allegations that his recent enlightenment has led him to be blackballed in the music industry. And while some have dismissed some of the things he’s had to say, he’s still expressed compassion for his fellow rappers in the music industry.

Over the years, Famous Dex’s issues with substance abuse have been well-documented. Though it has been a part of his music, plenty of people have shown concern for him. Most recently, NLE Choppa called out 300 Ent., Dex’s label, for being complicit in the rapper’s struggle with drugs.

“I’ve never been the type to be in folks business but @300 y’all see @FamousDex obviously on drugs too heavy can y’all at least try surrounding that man around somebody with his best interest. Help dude out, or somebody who already is in his ear uplift dude he NEEDING it,” he tweeted. 

Dex issues with substance abuse aside, he has continued to release new music over the past few months. Along with the slew of loosies that he’s flooded on YouTube, he dropped off Diana, his latest project, earlier this year which included appearances from Tyga, Rich The Kid, Fivio Foreign and more. 

Lil Wayne's "No Ceilings 3" Has Fans Feeling Nostalgic

Lil Wayne is a legend in every respect of the word and whenever he comes through with a brand new release, fans pay attention. Recently, it was revealed that Wayne would be dropping No Ceilings 3 and that it would be hosted by the likes of DJ Khaled. The hype was certainly palpable especially given the fact that the mixtape was being released by Datpiff, first. Of course, this immediately hit fans with some nostalgia as we all remember heading over to Datpiff during the infamous mixtape era.

Fans expected the project to drop at midnight yesterday but no such thing occurred. Instead, fans were forced to wait and they didn’t know when it would eventually drop. In the end, Datpiff came through at 9 PM EST and gave fans the 20-track project that boasts features from Drake, Young Thug, Gudda Gudda, Cory Gunz, and a whole host of others.

So far, fans have been loving the project, and understandably so. In fact, the biggest standout so far is the “B.B. King Freestyle” which features the likes of Drake. Fans couldn’t help but note Wayne and Drake’s chemistry here as we get a track that will most likely end up on some “Best Of 2020” lists.

For many others, the rollout for this album was a nice taste of nostalgia that helped make 2020 just a bit more palatable. With Datpiff’s website being overrun with music fans, it felt like 2011 again which is certainly something to celebrate given the events of the past year.

Check out what people had to say about the album, below.

Tony Hsieh, Former Zappos CEO & Tech Entrepreneur, Dead At 46

There has been a resurgence happening in Sin City and while there are many factors to contribute to this revitalization, people can’t help but credit tech entrepreneur Tony Hsieh. He’s wildly known for his money-making moves and near-billion dollar empire that he built through various ventures. He sold his internet advertising company to Microsoft and later invested in companies like AskJeeves and Zappos. Of the latter, Hsieh would become CEO of the clothing brand, only stepping down from his position earlier this year. On Friday (November 27), news surfaced that the 46-year-old had passed away, and the effects have been felt worldwide.

Megan Fazio, the spokeswoman for one of Hsieh’s companies, confirmed the news of his death. “Tony’s kindness and generosity touched the lives of everyone around him, and forever brightened the world,” the statement reads. “Delivering happiness was always his mantra, so instead of mourning his transition, we ask you to join us in celebrating his life.”

“On behalf of all DTP Companies employees and staff, we would like to express our deepest condolences to Tony’s family and friends who have all lost Tony as a cherished loved one, visionary and friend,” the statement continued. “Tony was highly regarded by all of his fellow friends and colleagues in the tight-knit family at DTP Companies, so this heartbreaking tragedy is one that affects many involved.”

A cause of death has not been revealed to the public at this time.

Jae Millz Recalls Being Upset With Drake Over 2012 Club Paradise Tour

He’s able to put the past behind him and boast about his days as a Young Money artist, but Jae Millz recently admitted that there was a time when he was upset with his labelmates. The rapper has nothing but love for his former Young Money crew including Drake, Nicki Minaj, Tyga, and Lil Twist, but he was honest with Bootleg Kev about a time almost 10 years ago when there were moves being made that got him hot under the collar.

“Nicki and Drake kept the lights on when Wayne went to Riker’s Island. I’m keepin’ it a buck,” said Jae Millz. “Now, we’re touring. How do we do the tours now? Who’s gonna open, who’s gonna close? Oh, he’s not going out with us? He’s going out on his own? She’s doing her own tour? So now, I’m peepin’ like—this when I realize this sh*t is really, really different and it happened fast.”

Millz recalled back in 2012 when Drake embarked on the Club Paradise Tour with Kendrick Lamar and A$AP Rocky. The tour pulled in $46 million and was a hit, but Jae Millz felt a certain way about it because he believed he was supposed to be on the line-up. “I was hot. I love Drake, but I was hot,” he said. “I was hot because I was thinking something was gonna go a certain way… That was basically everybody that was doing the same thing that we were doing at that time that wasn’t with Young Money.”

“And I love Drake. I love Drake with all my heart. I love Nicki. I love Tyga. Wayne, Gudda, Mack Mane, Twist. I love everybody that was apart of that ride,” he continued. “That was a decade of my life. That was a real period of my life, but there were a lot of times in that period when I started to see, ‘Oh, we’re labelmates. We homies, but we’re labelmates.’ You can’t forget that because you didn’t grow up with these people. You met these people on some business sh*t.”

Big O & Loki Loko Are Shining Like The ‘City Lights’

By xplizitsouljah Word Is Bond

Big O has been sharing with the Bond for a while now and he is back with a new material to share with us. ‘City Lights’ is the new single by Loki Loko & Doughboy Tony, produced by Big O himself and it is taken from their upcoming collaboration album “Waves” set to be released on March 26th 2021. According to the artists, the song reflects the life of growing up in Santa Ana & enjoying the night life. The track was blessed with an incredible guest verse from OC’s own Doughboy Tony and the beat is a nice west coast boom bap backdrop provided by O. You can feel the bounce but it does not distract from the song making it a perfect marriage.

The song is also available to download and stream on Bandcamp. Follow Big O on Facebook and Twitter.

Summer Walker Blasts London On Da Track: "Bum Ass N*gga"

The on-again-off-again relationship between Summer Walker and London On Da Track has hit a rough patch once again. There have been hints this week that things weren’t going well between the couple after Summer shared a few enigmatic posts to her social media accounts, and on Friday (November 27) evening, she seemed to confirm that all isn’t well on the home front. The award-winning singer recently shared with the public that she’s expecting her first child with the super-producer, and minutes ago, she posted a few messages that suggested that London On Da Track was cheating on her.

“I should really out this bum ass n*gga @londonondatrack,” she wrote on her Instagram Story. “I could really f*ck up life… lol but… I’m not.” She continued her thought in another slide. “For now. lol for now ima just take my L.” She then wrote, “A whole b*tch.”

Summer wasn’t finished. “Black men gotta start doing better when it comes to being a father,” she said. “My grandfather lame, my father lame, & dis n*gga lame. lol and I guess the cycle will just continue. I guess n*ggas still dealing with the shackles of mental slavery or some sh*t, back when white men ripped you from your families and beat you to death if you tried to protect them. It goes deep. Sh*ts really sad.”

London On Da Track hasn’t responded to Summer’s public declarations. He has recently been at odds with the mothers of his children who have accused him of not taking care of their kids. Check out all of Summer’s posts below, including her claims that she tried to get London to spend time with his children.
