Rich Homie Quan Says He Wants To Talk To Young Thug Before They Work Together

Rich Homie Quan and Young Thug were at one point musically connected at the hip but over time, their relationship dissolved. Many have urged the two to put their differences aside and get back to making music but that hasn’t happened and from a few things we’ve heard from Young Thug’s end, it seems like there’s no chance in the foreseeable future that would happen.

In a recent interview on DJ Scream’s Big Facts podcast, Rich Homie Quan discussed the possibilities of working with Thugger again in the future. As he’s stated in the past, he is open to the idea of working together but he explained that there’s a need for some dialogue between the two before they get in the booth.

“Like before we get to songs or anything, I just wanna see what bro mentally like because to this day, we still ain’t have no conversation,” he explained. “It was more like people around us talkin’ more than me and bro sittin’ down and having that conversation.”

When asked what he thinks got in the way of their friendship, Rich Homie Quan blamed ego and the narrative surrounding them, especially within their respective circles.

Although RHQ is open to collaborating, Young Thug might not feel entirely the same way. A few months ago, Thugger suggested there wasn’t any coming back from what RHQ did to him which is perhaps related to Rich Homie saying Thug is with the “gay sh*t.” Additionally, Thugger’s director said that their feud runs “deeper than rap.”

MF Doom Appears On UK Producer Wilma Archer's New Single, "Last Sniff"

 

Daniel Dumile is an unpredictable man. He can pop up anywhere at anytime, or nowhere. He records under multiple aliases and sporadically alternates between them. While MF Doom hasn’t put out a proper solo album since 2009’s Born Like This, he has remained prolific in more subtle ways. He drops loosies through Adult Swim and features on the projects of underground artists like Your Old Droog

His latest unexpected appearance is on Wilma Archer’s “Last Sniff”, a single off his forthcoming debut album, A Western Circular. Archer is U.K. producer and multi-instrumentalist, meaning DOOM provides the sole vocal performance on this song. Doom spits a verse over Archer’s slightly-ominous arrangement. If you dig Archer’s work, his album will be out April 3 via Domino. 

This song arrives just hours after Drake listed Doom among his list of “some of the greatest ever”. The last time Doom’s name was trending online was when Hannibal Buress pretended to be him onstage at the Adult Swim Festival. This incident prompted an HNHH think-piece: Why MF Doom Is Allowed to Use Imposters On Stage

Quotable Lyrics

Tending to be pretending to end a dude’s legacy
With numbers that run concurrent, stilla be a century
Or end in a heartbeat, them streets, damn
For simply just trying to eat and feed fam

Pop Smoke & Casanova Hang Out & End Their Beef

Last week, Pop Smoke and Casanova got caught up in a rather predictable beef. It seemed to have stemmed from Pop Smoke, a burgeoning Brooklyn rapper, declaring himself the “King of New York”. Bestowing oneself with the title has been a recurrent trend throughout the history of hip hop and every time a rapper does it, it incites dissenters. Considering Pop Smoke is still on the come up, fellow Brooklynite, Casanova, was not willing to let Pop Smoke’s bold claim slide.

On Pop Smoke’s newly-released song, “Christopher Walking”, he raps: “She know that Papi outside, she know I’m the King of New York.” It wasn’t only the second half of this bar that Casanova took issue with. After hearing a preview of the track on Pop Smoke’s Instagram, Casanova responded, “STOP USING MY PHRASE ‘WE OUTSIDE’ YEA MY PHASE‼️CAUSE YALL NOT OUTSIDE WE KNOW WHO’S OUTSIDE.” He also tweeted that “NOBODY RUNS NEW YORK IT’S TOO MUCH OUTSIDE N****S TO FRONT LIKE ONE N**** HAS THOSE POWER TO CONTROL THE WHOLE BITY.” 

Pop Smoke initially refused to retract his statement about being the “King Of New York”, but he and Casanova have found a way to put aside their differences. Casanova’s latest IG post shows him playfully wrestling with Pop Smoke with the following caption: “BEFORE WE ATE WE GOT SOMETHING OFF OUR CHEST… WHO YALL THINK WON?” Meek Mill was glad to see that the rappers’ heated standoff turned into a friendly one, commenting “G shit” with a ton of trophy emojis. 

On Friday, Pop Smoke was arrested for stealing a Rolls-Royce, which was apparently borrowed for a music video. After news circulated that he was locked up, Casanova took to Instagram to advocate for his release. In retrospect, this was the first sign that their beef would be squashed. We will continue to provide updates on that case.

Now, as he celebrates a new engagement and adjusts into a new way of life, Bugzy is prepping his next body of work.

Until he checks in with it, get acquainted with “Cause A Commotion.”

Quotable Lyrics

Ever seen five man hop out of the four-door?
Moncler smelling like a Tom Ford
Greeted them in French, I’m sayin’ “Bonjour”
Decorate the face, I’m on that contour

15-Year-Old Coco Gauff Defeats Venus Williams At Australian Open

Coco Gauff has repeated history as she returned to the Australia  Open and issued out a win against Venus Williams just half a year after defeating the older Willaims at Wimbledon.

“That was really difficult. She played really well,” Gauff said post-match. “[…] I definitely was more confident this time. I think I was used to playing on big courts, so the crowd – I guess the size of the crowd didn’t startle me as much as last time,” Gauff said. ”Definitely, a bit more positive coming into this match.”

With her win, Gauff now becomes only the 4th woman in the past 30 years to win 6 or more major matches before turning 16.

Elsewhere in the tournament the favorites of Roger Federer, Noami Osaka and Serena Williams all come out on top in their respective matches as Osaka took down the Czech Republic’s Marie Bouzkova while Williams defeated Russia’s Anastasia Potapova. Federer claimed his victory by beating out Steve Johnson of the USA.

“Definitely, it was really tough for me trying to control my nerves,” said Osaka of her win in round one. “I’m really glad I was able to finish it in two.”
