  1. Summer Walker is officially Over It. The R&B singer has pulled the plug on the majority of her “First and Last Tour” due to her extreme social anxiety. She made the announcement Tuesday in a video on Instagram. “I truly appreciate all the support and love. As you know, I have been very open about my struggle with social anxiety. I want to continue to be healthy and to make music for y’all, so I have decided to cut down some of the dates on the tour,” said the self-described introvert. “I hope you all can understand. I’m grateful for every single one of you, and I hope that you understand that wellness/mental health is important. All cancelled dates will be refunded asap. Thank you.” The aptly-titled “First and Last Tour” kicked off last month. Twenty of the 29 remaining dates have been canceled. The nine cities that remain include San Francisco, Toronto, Chicago, Royal Oak, Boston, Philadelphia, New York City, and Atlanta.

  4. Kanye West is bringing Sunday Service to Joel Osteen’s church. The rapper will take the stage at famed pastor Joel Osteen’s popular weekend ritual on Sunday, Nov. 17. According to TMZ, Ye and Joel have become friends and talk regularly, especially following Kanye’s newfound connection to God. Kanye is scheduled to appear at the televangelist’s 11 a.m. service at Lakewood Church in Houston. Kanye will have a conversation with Joel at the pulpit that will last between 20 and 30 minutes. Kanye and his traveling Sunday Service choir will return later to perform during Joel’s nighttime service. Joel wants his congregation of 45,000 and his TV audience of 10 million to hear how Kanye has overcome significant adversity in his life. The service will also broadcast live on SiriusXM. “Kanye used to be about nothing greater than himself. Now it’s all about a higher power,” says a source. Kanye’s gospel-rap album Jesus Is King debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, becoming his ninth consecutive chart-topper. As part of his religious rebirth, he has vowed to not perform his secular music in its original form going forward.
  5. It’s safe to say we’re in the middle of a stream apocalypse right now. Apple TV+ recently launched and Netflix has been dominating the stream wars with their award-winning original content. But Disney+ launched today and it’s definitely going to give all the streaming platforms a run for their money. Disney’s library is mind blowing because it contains Disney-owned content from Disney Animation to Pixar to Marvel to Lucasfilm to National Geographic, including old classic Disney movies and brand new original shows and movies. But it’s a family-friendly streaming platform, which means that it will be able to co-exist with Netflix and other streaming platforms (for now). The Hollywood Reporter says that Disney is allocating big bucks to produce original content centered around some of their original Marvel shows. On top of the wide selection, the Disney+ package comes with Hulu and ESPN all for $13 a month. People are already raving about being able to watch their favorite childhood TV shows at a click of a button. Disney+’s launch was met with some technical difficulties. Thousands of users reported receiving error messages. But overall it was met with seemingly positive reviews.

  6. Angel investors and well-known rappers Chamillionaire and E-40, in partnership with Republic.co, have upped the ante for their latest startup contest, with $100K in investment funds and a guest judge in the form of Shark Tank’s Daymond John. As with previous contests, the investment will be awarded to the best woman or minority-founded startup company; a historically underserved entrepreneurial community. The contest began yesterday and ends on Friday, December 6th. To enter, startups should download the Convoz app for iOS or Android and click on the banner at the top of the home feed to see the contest details and rules. Spotlighting the absence of diversity in the startup and investment world has been a long-held mission for Chamillionaire. As he told CNBC yesterday morning, “When people say they can’t find African-American startups to invest in, that sounds a little crazy to me.” He adds, “I feel like minority and women founded startups have been historically under-appreciated so I’m honored that legends like E40 & Daymond John would be willing to help bring more awareness to this problem. Capital and information are things that our community needs more of so we are trying to do what we can to spark some change”.

  9. Robyn Crawford is out promoting her memoir, A Song for You: My Life With Whitney Houston and she stopped by The Wendy Show. She admitted to the host that she planned to pull up on her with the late singer to confront her about the things she said about them when she was on WBLS. “[After] a long day’s work, we’d get in the car, the radio was on … everyone lived by the radio back then. We’re in the car and you’re like … talking like you lived with us, like you’re roommates with us,” Crawford tells the radio personality turned TV host on Tuesday morning. “We’d be in the car and Whitney would be like, ‘Who is she? Who is this woman? I don’t even know what she looks like!’ Our plan was to go down to Hudson Street … waiting for you right outside,” Crawford said. Williams responded, “Robyn, I can’t even fight! I would’ve run.” Crawford assured Williams, “We weren’t going to fight you — we just wanted to see you face-to-face and have a chat.” Robyn Crawford’s memoir confirms the rumors of her romantic relationship with Houston. This was a full circle moment for Williams who gossiped about it on radio. “All came true. A lot of what I said is in this book!” The post Robyn Crawford Details her Plan With Whitney Houston to Confront Wendy Williams appeared first on The Source | The Magazine of Hip Hop Music,Culture and Politics.
  10. R&Bieber is coming. According to HITS Daily Double, Justin Bieber will release his highly-anticipated new album before the year is over. The project will reportedly consist of R&B songs, which he dubbed “R&Bieber.” It may also feature some high-profile collaborations including a “possible reunion with Drake.” A tour would also follow. The superstar singer has been fueling the speculation himself. He teased “R&Bieber” on Instagram last month and told fans that he would release an album before Christmas if he receives 20 million likes. “Share it, like it, post in your story, I gotta see the demand ;) love you guys pumped for it!” he wrote on the post, which currently has 12 million likes. “I’m almost done but your support will make me move faster.” Bieber hasn’t released an album since 2015’s Purpose. In April, he returned to the stage during Ariana Grande’s set at Coachella where he teased new music. “So anyways this is my first time on stage in like two years, so I had to get my groove back. I had to get my swag back,” he told the crowd. “And by the way, album coming soon.” In the meantime, he has been collaborating with artists including Chris Brown, Gucci Mane, Dan + Shay, Ed Sheeran, and Billie Eilish.
  11. Eminem Addresses Leaked Rihanna Diss

    Eminem is speaking out following a leaked track on which he disses Rihanna. A seven-second snippet of the song, entitled “Things Get Worse,” hit the internet last week before eventually leaking in full over the weekend. It was originally recorded for Eminem’s 2009 album Relapse and a reworked version without the diss appeared on B.o.B.’s “Things Get Worse.” The track finds Em rapping about Chris Brown’s assault of his then-girlfriend Rihanna. In the clip, the 47-year-old rapper says, “I’d side with Chris Brown, I’d beat down a bitch too.” Elsewhere on the track, Eminem raps about beating a sex worker “mercilessly” and leaving her “for dead,” putting Natasha Bedingfield in a washing machine, and murdering actress Dakota Fanning. Following the decade-old leak, Eminem’s publicist Dennis Dennehy has addressed the track. “This is a leak of something that’s over 10 years old,” he said in a statement to The Guardian. “After Eminem recorded it, he scrapped it, and rewrote it. Obviously he and Rihanna have a great relationship.” The song was recorded just months after Brown was charged with assaulting Rihanna. Eminem and Rihanna went on to release several collaborations including 2010’s “Love the Way You Lie” and “Love the Way You Lie (Part II),” as well as “The Monster” for 2013’s The Marshall Mathers LP 2. At the time, Rihanna was surprised that Em wanted to collaborate with her given his past. “I was like, ‘What? Eminem wants to do a song with a pop artist? With me?’ ‘Cause, you know, he always raps and talks shit about pop artists and pop female artists,” she told MTV News in 2010. “So it was more of a shock to me than anything, and then that was the first thought. The second thought was, ‘Of course I’ll do a song with Eminem.’ That’s just something that doesn’t come around every day. And then thirdly, I heard the song, and I just loved it.”
  12. Lil Reese Critically Injured in Shooting

    Lil Reese is in critical condition following a shooting in his home state of Illinois. According to TMZ, the 26-year-old rapper was shot on Monday afternoon in Country Club Hills, about 40 minutes outside of Chicago. When officers arrived to the scene around 2:30 p.m., they discovered a vehicle that had fresh blood on the driver’s seat as well as on the ground next to the driver’s side door. Witnesses told police that a wounded man had been taken away by another man, who was later identified after officers checked local hospitals. Cops were told a male suffering from a single gunshot wound to the neck was being treated at South Suburban Hospital. The victim was later transferred to Christ Medical Center. According to Chicago’s WLS-TV, officials at Christ Medical Center identified the victim as Tavares Taylor aka Lil Reese and said he is in critical condition. It’s unclear what led to the shooting, but an investigation is underway. Following the shooting reports, Reese’s friend and collaborator Lil Durk took to Twitter to assure fans that Reese was okay. “Reese good,” Durk tweeted.
  13. Evander Holyfield appeared on Mike Tyson’s podcast this past week, and it’s so good to hear that they can laugh through their differences. TMZ Sports shared a clip of Holyfield explaining why he chose to figure Tyson for biting his ear off. “People keep asking, ‘How are you gonna forgive somebody?'” Holyfield said. “I say, everything that ever happened, at some point in time, I did it. Mike bit me, I say I bit somebody too … it just wasn’t on TV. I bit a guy in his shoulder. He dropped me, and I didn’t know when you had a concussion, you’ll bite too.” They ended up laughing about the situation. They’re even considering selling ear-shaped edibles to pay tribute to the incident. Click here to listen the clip from Hotboxin’ With Mike Tyson below.

  15. Fabolous returned to the Drink Champs podcast and he shared a bunch of stories behind his hit records, and the beginning of his major label career. Apparently there was a small mix up about his 2007 collaboration with Ne-Yo, “Make Me Better.” JAY-Z originally passed on the Timbaland-produced beat, and as the Brooklyn rapper was gearing up to release it as a single, he learned that the beat was also given to Eve. But after a brief conversation, the Pitbull in a skirt let him have the record. “She really didn’t know and we went to dinner, and she was like, ‘Y’all can have the record and it’s all good,’” Fabolous said. “Imagine my catalog without ‘Make Me Better’ in it.” Fab also recalled a heated conversation with Kid Cudi because the Man on the Moon rapper didn’t get credited for co-producing “You Be Killin Em” with Ryan Leslie. “He like, ‘Yo Fab, I did that joint with Ryan Leslie, I ain’t got my credit or my money,’” Fabolous said. “Cudi, bruh… why you on my line with this. ‘I’m supposed to have credit or money or something.’ You gotta relax, Kid Cudi. You blocked and everything right now… I gotta unfollow you and everything. ‘I don’t know why you calling me. That’s not even my call.’ The song is a hit already, what you talking to me for.” Another interesting story he shared was that he paid Lil Wayne 100,000 and four bottles of champagne for a song that never saw the light of day. Fabolous wanted Lil Wayne to be featured on his debut project. At the time, the then-17-year-old rapper was signed to Cash Money and on fire. “They were so hot at the time,” Fab said about Cash Money and the Hot Boys movement. “They came to the studio. I think Steve Stoute gave them 100 grand for Lil Wayne [out of my budget]. They were scorching. This Cash Money in like ’99. For the 99 and the 2000.” On top of the cash, Weezy requested four bottles of Cristal. “So the four bottles is there. We in the studio—we thinking that four bottles of Cris means they gonna come in, we gonna vibes, drink some champagne,” Fab continued. “Wayne come in, did his verse in 15 minutes, they was out. Took the four bottles with ’em. That’s my first time even seeing something like that. I’m like: ‘This shit different.'” Check out the full interview below: The post Fabolous Reveals his ‘Make Me Better’ Record Almost Belonged to Eve appeared first on The Source | The Magazine of Hip Hop Music,Culture and Politics.
