  1. 6ix9ine Denied Home Confinement Request

    6ix9ine will remain behind bars. A federal judge has denied the rapper’s motion to serve his 24 months under home confinement. On Tuesday, Judge Paul Engelmayer ruled that Tekashi must remain in jail for the remaining 10 months of his sentence. “The Court’s determination was, and is, that a 24-month prison sentence is necessary in this case,” wrote Engelmayer. “A shorter sentence would disserve the assembled [factors], including that Mr. Hernandez’s sentence reflect the seriousness of his crimes.” According to TMZ, Tekashi requested home confinement out of fear for his safety. He is concerned that he may be harmed by members of the Bloods, the same gang he testified against in order to receive a reduced sentence. The judge acknowledged that the private jail where Tekashi remains doesn’t have the rehabilitative programs of other facilities, but said that granting his request would “eliminate the remaining prison component of his sentence in favor of lesser forms of confinement.” Tekashi had been facing a minimum of 47 years behind bars on racketeering and firearm charges, which was reduced to two years. He has already served 14 months, which will count toward his sentence. Upon his release, he will be on supervised release for five years, and will have to complete 300 hours of community service and pay a $35,000 fine. Tekashi’s attorney plans to appeal the decision.
  2. Swae Lee is throwing his hat in the ring. The Rae Sremmurd crooner has expressed his desire to sing the national anthem at the Super Bowl. While speaking with TMZ, the “Unforgettable” hitmaker made his pitch to the NFL. “To the NFL and all the highest up people, please, I would like to sing the next one,” said Swae, who performed an impromptu rendition from his car. Swae will have to wait at least until next year though. Demi Lovato is set to perform “The Star Spangled Banner” at this year’s Super Bowl LIV in Miami on Feb. 2. “I know she gon’ kill it,” added Swae. Past national anthem performers have included Whitney Houston, Beyoncé, Mariah Carey, Diana Ross, Lady Gaga, and Christina Aguilera. In the meantime, Swae has been working on his solo album and will perform his own set at Coachella in April. Last year, he dropped a pair of singles, “Sextasy” and “Won’t Be Late” featuring Drake.
  3. With a decade now in the books, sports journalists decided it was time to claim a Fighter of The Decade. The Boxing Writer’s Association of America picked Floyd “Money” Mayweather. Coming in as a close second was Saul “Canelo” Alvarez. However, S.I. does credit Mayweather as the “star of the decade”. S.I. labels Mayweather “a mainstream megastar” in 2010. Mayweather famously morphed from “Pretty Boy Floyd” to “Money May” during his career-turning win over Oscar De La Hoya in 2007. He also signed a lucrative deal with Showtime in 2013 that went on to break all pay per view records. The BWAA is an organization of professional journalists. The Joe Louis Fighter of the Decade nominees were: Wladimir Klitschko, Manny Pacquiao, Andre Ward, Canelo Alvarez, and Floyd Mayweather, Jr. The post SOURCE SPORTS: Sports Illustrated Shades Floyd Mayweather for Andre Ward As Fighter of The Decade appeared first on The Source.
  4. Kimora Lee Simmons’s husband, Tim Leissner, was balling on a whole other level before scandal hit. The former Goldman Sachs partner in Asia agreed to forfeit $43.7 million in 2018 over a guilty plea with the Department of Justice. Apparently, Leissner and his associates mismanaged $4.5 billion incorrectly. Last week, his former employer set aside $1.09 billion during the final quarter of the year. According to Forbes, this settled $6.5 billion in loans to Malaysian development fund 1MDB. Leissner profited illegally from the transaction. Leissner broke U.S. bribery laws and pleaded guilty. As a result, he is barred by the Securities and Exchange Commission. The charges were initially filed in 2017. Leissner and his accomplices managed the funds from 2009 to 2014 with more than $200 million going directly to him and an associate. Ironically, the funds were used to purport a lavish rap music lifestyle. From luxury yachts to U.S. properties, art, and eventual bribes, Leissner was balling. As a result, Goldman Sachs posted earnings per share down 22% from the previous year. The Malaysian government is also fining Goldman Sachs $7.5 billion for the drama. With the sexual assault accusations against her ex-husband, Russell Simmons, Kimora is going through it with her relationships.

  5. Hip-Hop’s best will come together to honor Nipsey Hussle at the 2020 Grammy Awards. On Tuesday, it was announced that the “Dedication” rapper would receive a star-studded tribute at the 62nd Grammy Awards. Joining DJ Khaled for the tribute is John Legend, Kirk Franklin, Roddy Ricch, Meek Mill and YG. The post 2020 Grammys: Nipsey Hussle to Receive Legendary Tribute appeared first on The Source.
  6. Will Smith and Martin Lawrence experience a big opening weekend. Bad Boys For Life debuted at No.1 in its opening weekend by grossing over $100 million globally mark with ease. Did anyone expect anything less? The dynamic duo of Martin Lawrence and Will Smith are something like our favorite Hip-Hop duos: Jay-Z and Kanye West or Drake and Lil Wayne. When they get together, it results in guaranteed success. The movie’s soundtrack was released under DJ Khaled’s We The Best Imprint. It features Meek Mill, Rick Ross, City Girls, Jaden Smith, Buju Banton, Pitbull and more. It has been over 25 years since Will Smith and Martin Lawrence debuted their buddy-cop, action-comedy. Bad Boys 2 was released 7 years after. Although fans had to wait until 2020, it was well worth it. As you can see, they have picked up exactly where they left off.

  7. With all of the high profile attention that Kanye and Kim get for silly things when they reach back to communities (especially those that they seemingly have no contact with), you have to take pause and congratulate them on their philanthropic efforts. Thus we stop and salute them for paying for hundreds to see the social justice movie about Bryan Stevenson’s life, Just Mercy. According to Koco ABC 5 News, Kimye did a theater buy out in Oklahoma City with a group called “Represent Justice.” OKC will not be the only city that they will sponsor movie visits to. They will also do screenings in Washington DC, Milwaukee, Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, and Miami. There is a strong development in both of these Hip-Hop darlings lives that may have compelled their support: Kanye has recently converted to Christianity and according to the prophet Micah, he most do justice, love mercy and walk humbly with his God, and Kim has invested a sizable amount of energy in advocating for prisoners and probably inspired by Stevenson and his work.

  8. It’s a boy! Christina Milian and her boyfriend, French singer-songwriter Matt Pokora, welcomed a son on Monday. Taking to Instagram, Milian revealed the baby’s name, Isaiah, along with a black-and-white photo of her son holding his mom’s finger. “And so we begin. Isaiah 1/20/20,” wrote Milian. “Simply perfect. The world is yours Son. Love, Mom & Dad.” Pokora posted a similar photo accompanied by a caption in French, which translates to: “Once upon a time there was Isaiah, born on 20/01/2020 … it’s your turn to write the rest … Welcome my son / @christinamilian you’re my hero … Ps: le jour du Martin Luther King day … ” In July, the couple announced that they were expecting their first child together. Milian, 38, and Pokora, 34, started dating in August 2017. “We got along so long so well from the very beginning,” Milian told “The Real” in 2018. “We have the best time together. I could spend every day with him, every moment and everything. It’s been cool. We just have a good time.” Isaiah is the second child for Milian, who has a 9-year-old daughter, Violet, with ex-husband The-Dream.
  9. Culture III is on the way. Offset is teasing the final installment in Migos’ popular Culture series. Taking to Instagram on Monday, Offset announced a 2020 release date: “CULTURE 3 2020 LAST CHAPTER.” His caption prompted speculation that this could be Migos’ final album, but it may just be the last chapter in the Culture series. Either way, fans have been eagerly anticipating the long-awaited project since it was first announced in 2018. “I feel like it’s more about Migos that y’all don’t know yet,” Quavo told Business Insider. “And I feel like this album is going to be prolific. I feel like this album is going to be the album to do it. And I think it’s Culture III, but I don’t know. I think we may change the chapter.” The trilogy already includes 2017’s Culture featuring the No. 1 hit “Bad and Boujee,” and 2018’s Culture II. The latter spawned the hits “MotorSport,” “Stir Fry,” and “Walk It Talk It” featuring Drake. Each member also released solo projects–Quavo’s Quavo Huncho, Takeoff’s The Last Rocket, and Offset’s Father of 4–before reuniting as a group. “No straight gang shit from now on,” Offset told a fan last year.
  10. After escaping the legal woes of last year’s bar brawl and defeating Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone at UFC 246, you’d think that Irish fighting great Conor McGregor would want to celebrate his recent victories in peace. Instead, McGregor has been making political statements and has even referred to President Trump as one of the United States’ best presidents ever. Trump sent out a tweet in reference to his inaugural anniversary, which happened to fall on MLK Day this year, so the troubled president took that opportunity to pat himself on the back for African Americans’ lowest unemployment rate in the history of this country, according to him. Only one boxer has ever made sensible political statements and McGregor is obviously no Muhammad Ali. Stick to the octagon, Conor.

  11. What does it mean to be the son of one of the most polarizing personalities in Hip-Hop? Hip-Hop? Dare we say all of music. It means that you have a gang responsibility that will require you to walk in legacy. That is what Young Dirty Bastard, the son of The Wu Tang’s Ol’ Dirty Bastard, has come to realize. In his UP IN THE SOURCE episode, he fearlessly talks about reclaiming his knowledge of self, how Wu Tang has created opportunities and most of all… what it was like to be the Ason Unique’s beloved child. Check out Young Dirty Bastard as he gives us a glimpse into his life.

  12. If you thought her fainting on live TV was something to watch, wait until you hear this. Famed talk show host Wendy Williams has made it viral once again after she passed gas during the “Hot Topics” segment of The Wendy Williams Show. The controversial pundit tried to play it off, but the fart was too loud to ignore, especially on live television. As soon as she went in on Odell Beckham Jr. and his legal issues, the stomach bubble came out. The post [WATCH] Wendy Williams Tries to Hold in a Fart on Live TV appeared first on The Source.
  13. The saga continues. The Weeknd delivers more thills in the action-packed video for “Blinding Lights.” The cinematic clip serves as a sequel to the chart-topping “Heartless,” which dropped last month. It opens with a bloody Abel laughing before flashing back to him stumbling through the Las Vegas streets while reliving his wild night. The XO crooner races through the streets of downtown L.A. in his drop-top Mercedes and shows off his Joker-inspired dance moves while donning a red blazer and smoking a cigarette. The night ends with him being assaulted by two men, but he is somehow able to find humor in his tragedy. “Blinding Lights” can also be heard in the Mercedes-Benz EQC campaign, for which The Weeknd serves as creative director. The Uncut Gems actor will perform his latest single on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” on Wednesday night. He previously performed “Blinding Lights” and “Heartless” on “The Late Show” last month.
  14. Another one! DJ Khaled and his wife Nicole Tuck have welcomed their second child, a baby boy. Taking to Instagram on Monday, Khaled shared the big news along with photos from the delivery room. “THANK YOU ALLAH ! THANK YOU MY QUEEN NICOLE !BLESS UP DR JIN ! ANOTHER ONE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” wrote Khaled, who is seen high-fiving the doctor.

Leading up to the album’s release, Keys has released a trio of singles including the Miguel-assisted “Show Me Love,” “Time Machine,” and the anthemic “Underdog.” The album has received praise from her husband Swizz Beatz. “The Best of the Best hands down” wrote the super-producer, adding, “Let’s go this Album is crazyyyyyyyyyy” The 15-time Grammy winner will also return to the stage on “ALICIA – The World Tour,” her first tour in seven years.
