1. Winston Duke to star in a biopic detailing the life of deceased MMA fighter Kimbo Slice.
After playing M’Baku in two Marvel titles (Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War), actor Winston Duke continues his way to stardom by taking on a most daring role as the late fighter Kimbo Slice.
For those of you unfamiliar, Kimbo Slice (real name Kevin Ferguson) faced homelessness and transformed as a YouTube fighting sensation to professional MMA fighter. Slice died June 2016 of congestive heart failure.
No word on co-stars, director, or release date but the biopic is slated to be called Backyard Legend. Congrats to Duke on his new role!
2. Cardi B became a meme with an old childhood photo she posted to her Instagram!
If y’all ain’t know by now…the Internet has zero chill and is quick to turn ANYbody into a meme. This was the case with an old photo of five-year-old Cardi B. Here’s a sample of the latest Cardi memes that have been floating around:
3. Cardi B and Offset welcome Kulture, their new baby girl, into the world!
This past Tuesday, Cardi B and Offset welcomed their baby girl Kulture Kiari Cephus into the world! Kulture gets her name from Offset’s real name Kiari Cephus, meanwhile the child’s name pays homage to the Migos previous albums, Culture and Culture II.
4. Will Smith does the #InMyFeelings challenge.
You do what when you’re poppin’. CORRECTION: You can do what you want when you’re one of the world’s biggest movie stars— aka Will Smith!
The #InMyFeelingsChallenge was originally started by Instagram sensation TheShiggyShow, who goes by Shiggy for short. Since it began late June, other celebs such as Kevin Hart, Ciara, and Russell Wilson have taken a stab at the viral dance.
Apparently the Internet thinks Will Smith “won” the challenge as the actor took his attempt to new heights— literally! Smith danced on top of a bridge in Budapest. Despite stiff dance moves, one cannot help but admire the effort Will put into the challenge. Check out Will’s daredevil-ish attempt and let me know what you think.
2018 hasn’t been great for Pittsburgh emcee Mac Miller. He was slapped with a DUI back in May of this year, and even split up with his former pop star girlfriend Ariana Grande.
However, Mac’s looking to make a comeback with his new album, Swimming. As mysterious as the project material and title may be, a 30-second promo trailer for the album provided “some” context.
Mac took it a step further by even announcing his tracklist. Swimming marks Mac’s first album since September 2016’s The DivineFeminine(which was a great birthday gift to myself back then, thanks Mac!).
1. “Come Back to Earth” 2. “Hurt Feelings” 3. “What’s The Use?” 4. “Perfecto” 5. “Self Care” 6. “Wings” 7. “Ladders” 8. “Small Worlds” 9. “Conversation Pt. 1” 10. “Dunno” 11. “Jet Fuel” 12. “2009” 13. “So It Goes”
A “fan” disapproved of Chance’s proposal and Chano wasn’t having it. Chance exchanged tweets and even went as far as to personally DM this Twitter user. What do y’all think? Be sure to sound off in the comments below!
Can I be honest? I really thought Chance the rapper proposal was extra hot smelly trash. I'm all for keeping it simple but 5 years and kid. She deserved a little more effort. It was kinda fuck boyish like well I guess we can finally get married

So @chancetherapper decided to search his name on twitter and saw what I said about his proposal. Then took it upon himself to DM me. To respond to your statement I thought it was wack and I think you are too. Don't DM me. pic.twitter.com/VfpuT0VoZx

5. Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande drop the video for their duet, “Bed.”
So prior to making this post, I spent roughly 5 minutes watching the video for Nicki Minaj‘s latest duet with Ariana Grande. The video was bleh, and the video seemed very lackluster for a song that’s supposed to give a sexy summer-time vibe.
Nicki spends her time rolling around in the ocean as a mermaid, and towards the end magically transforms back into her human form to be on time for a date with Odell Beckham, Jr. from the New York Giants. Whoopee!
“If the Barbz and Arianators (fan bases for Nicki and Ariana, respectively) come for my neck, and I don’t come back from war..mark these as my last words…”
6. Drake’s Scorpion album becomes the first project ever to hit one billion streams in a week across all platforms!
Champagne Papi. The 6 God. Drizzy. Whatever you may call him..Drake seemingly continues to shatter records with almost every album he drops!
According to Billboard, The superstar rapper’s newest effort became the first album to reach one BILLION global streams across all digital platforms.
Prior to Scorpion tearing up global streaming records, Post Malone‘s beerbongs & bentleys held the global record with under 700 million streams.
Congrats due to Drake! Let’s all help him celebrate by doing the #InMyFeelings / #DoTheShiggy challenge.
2. Cardi B and Offset secretly got married…and TMZ got the proof of their wedding certificate to prove it!
Here’s a snippet of the actual marriage certificate, which shows that they’ve been married since September 20th of last year. Check the full document here.
That gosh darn TMZ..maaaan, they be on it for real!
Apparently, they joined each other’s hand in marriage MONTHS ago…..OKURRRR (Cardi B voice)!
On Sunday, June 24th, the Migos accepted the BET Award for Best Group in which Offset said, “I thank my wife, you should thank yours.” (To be honest…I was too busy being upset that A Tribe Called Quest didn’t win to pay attention to what Offset was actually saying!)
Congrats to the happy couple, especially since they’re expecting their first child together sometime later this month!
3. Kendrick Lamar landed on the cover of Vanity Fair!
It seems like everyday Kendrick Lamar is reaching not only new heights as a top-tier hip-hop artist, but also as a person aware of his responsibility to himself and his community.
Fresh off winning the coveted Pulitzer Prize, Vanity Fair just snagged an interview with Kung-Fu Kenny in which is discusses Kanye West, Colin Kaepernick, and more.
I haven’t read the interview yet myself; however, I’m sure there’s gems in it. I’ll be back in a few days to give my opinion on his Vanity Fair cover story. In the meantime, check out the cover below!
4. Drake dropped his latest effort “Scorpion.” Memes and IG captions are here all summer 2018!
Side A is rap, while side B is strictly R&B vibes. Which side is your favorite or are yall not feeling the album overall?
5. Chance the Rapper speaks on upcoming joint projects with Kanye West and Childish Gambino.
6. Paul George and Russell Westbrook of the OKC Thunder were seen hanging out with Nas as he performed new music from his latest album, Nasir.
