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!

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!
A Georgia middle school teacher is in hot water this week after using Kodak Black lyrics for a school assignment. Read more on TheOriginalChatman. Don’t forget to like, share, comment and mostly importantly–subscribe!
I remember waaaaaay back in fifth grade, my English teacher Mrs. Fairman (at least I think that was her name!) handed us a in-class assignment with lyrics from Eminem’s classic fight song, “Lose Yourself.” I can’t quite remember the specific instructions of the assignment, but I vividly remember reading the lyrics in class thinking that at the time she was probably the coolest teacher I’ve had in my adolescent life.
Despite the politics regarding the current landscape of rap, one thing fuels rap music more than anything. Lyrics! While some rap artists don’t rely heavily on super lyrical content, there’s no doubt that lyrics can be a powerful force to be reckoned with—if used correctly.
This was the intention for a Bethune Middle School teacher in DeKalb County, Georgia when she asked students to put a positive spin on the song lyrics of “Drowning” for a school assignment. The song—which peaked #38 on Billboard’s Hot 100 earlier this summer—is originally A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie‘s but includes a feature from controversial Florida rapper Kodak Black.
According to ABC Atlanta-affiliate station WSBTV, the lyrics in question stem from Kodak Black’s verse.
I ain’t Jamaican, b*tch I’m Haitian, but I got them shottas
She call me daddy, but I ain’t her motherf*cking father
Crishana Wright, a mother of a student at Bethune, spoke out about the assignment to WSBTV. “It was really against everything that I try to teach them.”
The school’s superintendent released a statement calling the assignment “inappropriate, unacceptable and contrary to our standards.” Furthermore, they revealed to WSB that the teacher responsible for the assignment “has been removed from the classroom and will be held for such poor judgment.”
Although I firmly believe hip-hop can be used as learning tool, my biggest concern here is that the teacher failed to realize young minds, especially those of sixth graders, are extremely delicate with the information and knowledge we fill their heads with. There are several examples the teacher could’ve used to relate to her students with.
I’m pretty sure a lot of guys—celebs and non-celebs alike—have tried shooting their shot with the self-proclaimed Queen of Rap, Nicki Minaj. I mean who could blame them, right?
Recently, a not-so-regular guy by the name of John Mayer confessed via his Twitter that he spends “an inordinate amount of time” thinking if Nicki would love him or crush him. Not necessarily in those words, but you get the gist. Check out Mayer’s tweet from Friday night. According to an article from Complex, he’s a changed man regarding his thoughts on interracial dating that go all the way back to 2010.
I spend an inordinate amount of time per day wondering if Nicki Minaj would like me or not.
