Eminem releases the Beyoncé-assisted track “Walk on Water” from his upcoming ninth album rumored to be titled “Revival”. Is the song HOT or not? Chime in the comments below!
Eminem and Beyoncé team up for “Walk on Water”, a song ripped from Em’s upcoming ninth album rumored to be titled “Revival.” Just as a heads up, the song is more of a ballad than Eminem’s Trump-bashing fiery freestyle he released at this year’s BET Hip-Hop Awards. Sound off in the comments to let me know if the track is hot or not.
Lil Uzi and Nav (from the XO camp) team up on “Wanted You.” Is the track HOT or NOT? Sound off in the comments!
I’m gonna be honest…I may not be the biggest fan of Lil Uzi Vert; however, I must admit that his album slaps in the whip now and then. Luv is Rage 2 charted at number one on the Billboard 200 with his hit song “XO Tour Llif3.” In addition to “XO Tour Llif3”, Uzi released his follow-up single “The Way Life Goes” which chronicles the same vein as “Tour Llif3”—a failed relationship.
Furthermore, with an assisted verse from Nicki Minaj, she helped Uzi take the song to new heights. Minaj took to Instagram to preview a snippet of her “The Way Life Goes” verse and bam—it’s now an official remix.
The charismatic Philly rapper isn’t slowing down. Uzi and XO artist Nav released “Wanted You” on Thursday night, a heavily auto-tuned track dedicated to a bitter relationship that shouldn’t have happened. Listen to both tracks below and sound off in the comments if they’re hot or not.
Sidebar: The sample from Uzi’s “The Way Life Goes” is from a 2015 song called “Landslide” by Oh Wonder, an R&B duo from the U.K. I’ve been bumpin’ their eponymous album and it’s pretty solid. Feel free to check it out!
21 Savage finally releases a visual for “Bank Account” which features a Mike Epps cameo. Check it out here on TheOriginalChatman.com
“I got 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 cents in my bank account…in my bank account!”
21 Savage finally releases a visual for his summer smash hit “Bank Account” from his debut album, Issa. There’s a pretty awesome cameo in it too! Actor and comedian Mike Epps fits the bill for the “Bank Account” cameo and we see Mike pull no stops out for him just being naturally hilarious.
Long story short, Mike Epps is delivering a teddy bear to an office building while 21 Savage and his crew prepare for a heist–which ironically is inside the same building Mike within. Check out the visual below and let me know if you feel it or not.
Without spoiling the twist, this is definitely a clip that’s as hilarious as the shift is unexpected. It’s also just dope to see “Bank Account,” which was without a doubt one of the early picks from the album when it dropped, get a proper video treatment. It also shows different sides to 21’s character.

TheOriginalChatman is back with all new content! I’ve decided to cover last night’s reunion between Kanye West and Kid Cudi during Cudi’s Chicago show on Saturday, Nov. 4, 2017.
Welcome back Yeezy!
As one of the world’s biggest Kanye West fans (don’t debate me either, guarantee you won’t win…), it brought me joy seeing ‘Ye appear onstage in Chicago next to Kid Cudi during Cudi’s show. Outside of random sightings, this is the first time we’ve seen ‘Ye actually perform. The pair performed Kanye’s Saint Pablo standout hit “Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1.” Watch footage of the performance below.

Last November, the Chicago heavy-hitter indefinitely postponed his “Saint Pablo” tour which happened to be inflamed with controversy. From publicly endorsing Donald Trump to criticizing Jay-Z and Beyoncé during a slew of fiery onstage rants, the result for West left him hospitalized for exhaustion.
Chance the Rapper was an integral force in setting the Twittersphere in frenzy after tweeting, “Kid Cudi brought out Kanye in Chicago.”
Fingers crossed 2018 will be the year of more YEEZY SZN (“Yeezy” SZN)!
Roberto Escobar vs. Netflix for the winning bid of $1 billion–will Netflix have to hand it over?
Imagine having one of the most popular shows on the biggest streaming service on the planet. Next, imagine someone wanting to short you out of one BILLION dollars because they ask you to put some respek! on their name.
Unfortunately, this is a real scenario with real people. Pablo Escobar’s brother Roberto de Jesus Escobar Gaviria is threatening Netflix and their popular crime-drama series Narcos with a copyright claim for $1 billion—-that’s billion with a B!
According to documents obtained by the Hollywood Reporter(feel free to glance it over for the specifics), Escobar’s brother filed a lawsuit demanding the large sum of money for using the Medellín cartel founder’s name and story without permission from himself or the family.
Being the boss that he is, or once was, Roberto claims “it is very dangerous” to film any movies in Colombia without the family’s blessing. Asking Netflix to ante up $1 billion is an extremely bold move. Not one to sell himself short, Escobar expressed that he wants the show to be closed down all together if he’s not awarded the $1 billion he’s asking for.
Do you think Roberto Escobar has a right to tell Netflix to pay up? Sound off in the comments below!
