  2. Halle Berry has become one of the most name-checked celebrities in hip-hop. From Biggie to Missy Elliott, the Oscar-winning actress has found herself in the lyrics to your favorite rap song. So how does she feel to be on the receiving end of all the adoration? “I love it!” tweeted the Boomerang actress when asked by a fan. I love it! https://t.co/p47gtH4Zwq — Halle Berry (@halleberry) June 9, 2021 For two decades, the name Halle Berry has been dropped on tracks including Kanye West’s “New Workout Plan,” J. Cole’s “Higher,” Missy Elliott’s “Work It,” Migos’ “Versace,” and Kendrick Lamar’s “Money Trees,” just to name a few. She even had an entire song named after her, Hurricane Chris’ 2009 hit “Halle Berry (She’s Fine).” JAY-Z has mentioned the Catwoman star twice on “Beach Is Better” off 2013’s Magna Carta Holy Grail and most recently on DMX’s “Bath Salts,” where he raps, “Be my Halle Berry, all you need is a catsuit.” But when it comes to choosing her favorite reference, the 54-year-old actress can’t pick one because she they all hold a special place in her heart. “I think of these references like my children in a way. There’s no way I could pick one,” she said during a 2019 appearance on “Hot Ones.” “I love all these artists. I’m always flattered when any one of them include me and that they still remember me and know who I am. So to pick one would be like picking my daughter over my son. I love them all.” OK, I always get asked which rap song reference is my favorite… here is my answer. pic.twitter.com/3iMye6Maxe — Halle Berry (@halleberry) June 9, 2021
  3. Kim Kardashian is not concerned with Kanye West’s love life. Amid romance rumors between Kanye and Irina Shayk, a source tells E! News how Kanye’s estranged wife feels about her ex’s new relationship, which comes just months after they officially split. “Kim has heard the rumors about Kanye and Irina Shayk and she doesn’t mind at all,” said the insider. “If it doesn’t impact her kids, then she doesn’t mind if Kanye dates.” According to TMZ, Kanye and the supermodel celebrated his 44th birthday by vacationing together in Provence, France. The pair was seen smiling and strolling around the luxury Villa La Coste boutique hotel while “looking very much like a couple.” TMZ claims they are “100% romantically together,” but it’s unclear how serious their relationship is at this point. Irina split from Bradley Cooper in 2019 after four years of dating. The former couple shares a 4-year-old daughter. In February, Kim filed for divorce from Kanye after nearly seven years of marriage. Following their separation, Page Six reported that Ye wanted to date “an artist and a creative person,” so “they can speak the same language to each other.” For Kanye’s birthday on Tuesday, Kim celebrated by sharing a throwback photo of the family. “Happy Birthday Love U for Life!” she captioned it. Happy Birthday Love U for Life! pic.twitter.com/YK5mbZyAqD — Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) June 8, 2021 The KKW Beauty mogul broke down over her marriage struggles on a recent episode of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” which was filmed prior to her divorce filing. “He should have a wife that supports his every move and travels with him and does everything and I can’t,” said a tearful Kim. “I feel like a fu**ing failure that it’s like a third fu**ing marriage. Yeah, I feel like a fu**ing loser.” Despite being romantically linked to CNN’s Van Jones, Kim remains single. “She’s not in a rush,” a source told E! News. “Her priority is definitely the kids and being a great mom.”
  4. Tinashe is feelin’ right. Just days after dropping her new single “Pasadena,” Tinashe brings her summer anthem to life in the feel-good video featuring Buddy. In the dance-heavy clip, directed by Micaiah Carter, the R&B sensation stuns in high-fashion looks while taking in nature’s beauty. She catches a vibe with Buddy on a house perched high in the hills and dances atop an architectural stone structure. But it appears that the dreamlike sequence was all a part of her VR experience. “The song ‘Pasadena’ is about growth, family, and the feelings I get when I visit the area I grew up in— energetic, nostalgic, and hopeful,” said Tinashe. “Pasadena” is the first single off Tinashe’s upcoming album 333, her first since 2019’s Songs for You.
  5. The Notorious B.I.G.’s daughter is bringing a slice of New York to L.A. T’yanna Wallace, daughter of the late Christopher Wallace, is opening up a new pizza restaurant called Juicy Pizza, inspired by her father’s 1994 hit song. She has partnered with Tyra Myricks, daughter of the late Jam Master Jay, to set up shop at 615 N. La Brea Ave. According to Eater, the restaurant design pays homage to New York City with subway car details and bodega vibes. Juicy Pizza will open for business on Saturday, June 12, starting with dinner only. In addition to cheese and pepperoni pizza ($23 and $30 for a whole, or $4 to $5 per slice), the menu includes oxtail, beef and broccoli, jerk chicken, and chopped cheese eggrolls. As a New Yorker living in Los Angeles, Myricks felt there was “no good pizza in Los Angeles” and wanted to bring New York City-style pizza to the West Coast. “The more I thought about how to bring that New York theme to Los Angeles, I felt, who represents New York more than Biggie Smalls?” Myricks told Business Insider. So she reached out to Wallace, whose mother is Jan Jackson. “I was like I don’t want you to invest anything,” Myricks recalled telling Biggie’s daughter. “Let’s just make money together. Let’s make moves.” This is the latest business venture for Wallace, who also runs a store in Brooklyn called Notoriouss that sells men’s and women’s clothing, some of which features her father.
  6. Kanye West is boo’d up in France. After sparking romance rumors last month, Yeezy and Irina Shayk are reportedly taking their relationship to the next level. The rapper and supermodel were spotted celebrating his 44th birthday in the French region of Provence on Tuesday (June 8). According to TMZ, the two were smiling and strolling around a luxury boutique hotel while “looking very much like a couple.” TMZ claims they are “100% romantically together,” but it’s unclear how serious their relationship is at this point. The Instagram gossip account DeuxMoi was first to report that Kanye was “secretly dating Irina Shayk aka Bradley Cooper’s baby mama.” The two have been linked before, but not romantically. Back in 2010, the Russian model was featured as an angel in Kanye’s “Power” video. She also modeled in his Yeezy show at Paris Fashion Week. Additionally, Kanye name-checked Shayk on 2010’s “Christian Dior Denim Flow.” In honor of Kanye’s birthday on Tuesday, his estranged wife Kim Kardashian wished him on social media. “Happy Birthday Love U for Life!” wrote Kim, who filed for divorce in February after nearly seven years of marriage. Kanye celebrated his birthday by launching the first piece in his Yeezy Gap collection, a $200 blue nylon puffer jacket. His manager also announced that his new album, possibly titled West Day Ever, is on the way.
  7. Drake is making History. The Artist of the Decade is launching his own concert venue named History in his hometown of Toronto. He has partnered with Live Nation on the 2,500-capacity venue, which is slated to open this fall in the Beaches neighborhood. History hopes to host as many as 200 concerts and events each year once construction is completed this summer. In an Instagram post, Drake reflected on bringing his vision to life. “When I was younger in Toronto the biggest goal in the world to me was getting a crispy Iceberg or Girbaud fit from Jaydees Connections with @goldoildiamonds and trying to get into this legendary party called History Dance,” he said. “I never made it in but I always heard all about it in the days to follow…now thanks to this partnership with @michaelrapino artists from all across the world can come to Toronto and make their own History. See you in FALL 21.” In a statement, Live Nation CEO Michael Rapino, added, “We saw an opportunity to bring Toronto a great new venue, and we have so much gratitude and respect for Drake teaming up with us to bring it to life in the best way possible.” According to Rolling Stone, History has been in development for the past three years and will be capable of hosting galas, community programs, and other events. The venue has already booked concerts for the fall including Thundercat, 24kGoldn, and 070 Shake. This is the latest business endeavor for the Certified Lover Boy, who launched his own candle line with Better World Fragrance House last month. He recently parted ways with Canadian cannabis producer Canopy Growth Corp. after announcing their More Life Growth joint venture in 2019.
  8. The year of DaBaby continues. After earning platinum plaques for his albums and singles, the “Rockstar” rapper is feeling on top of the world and he’s not afraid to show it. Taking to his Instagram Story on Tuesday, he declared himself the “best rapper” while claiming that his peers are “scared” to work with him because they view him as a threat. “Best mf rapper & I’m on ALLLAT shit these ni**as LIE about,” DaBaby wrote. “I’m him frfr. If a n***a ain’t tryna work with the real thang he SCARED. The best supposed to compete w/ the best. These ni**as just TALK like they like dat SHUUUUT UP.” While it may be a bold declaration, DaBaby has earned his bragging rights. He received RIAA certifications for his hits including “Rockstar” (5x platinum), “Suge” (4x platinum), “Bop” (3x platinum), “Vibez” (2x platinum), and more. DaBaby, along with Megan Thee Stallion, leads with seven nominations at the 2021 BET Awards, where he is nominated in categories including Best Male Hip Hop Artist and Album of the Year for Blame It on Baby. And he’s not slowing down. He currently has a top 10 hit with his Dua Lipa collaboration “Levitating,” which sits at No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100.
  9. It’s finally here. Just days before its release, Migos has revealed the tracklist for their highly-anticipated new album Culture III. In addition to the single “Straightenin,” the 19-track set is filled with superstar guests–from Drake (“Having Our Way”) to Justin Bieber (“What You See”). Cardi B guests on “Type Shit,” while Future joins Quavo, Takeoff, and Offset on “Picasso.” The late Juice WRLD can be heard on “Antisocial” and Pop Smoke on “Light It Up.” Other guests include Polo G and NBA YoungBoy. In a recent interview, Quavo called the follow-up to 2018’s Culture II “the greatest album of this year.” “I feel like this album going to open up the world. We’re having fun and smiling again,” he told Complex. “Everybody’s been hurtin’, and going through this pandemic, and losing loved ones. I feel like this is a breakthrough. This is the sonic boom to the new life and new world that we live in. We’ve been going through this pandemic for like a year-and-a-half.” Culture III arrives Friday. See the tracklist below.

  10. Pooh Shiesty is behind bars. The 21-year-old Memphis rapper was taken into custody on Tuesday (June 8) and charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. The arrest stems from his alleged involvement in a May 30 shooting at Miami nightclub King of Diamonds where a security guard was shot in an apparent dispute over money. According to the police report, obtained by TMZ, security was escorting Pooh out of the building when an altercation ensued between Pooh and the security staff over money that had reportedly fallen out of Pooh’s pants. The Memphis MC allegedly pulled out a gun and fired off a round toward the ground. One of the security guards was hit in the right ankle and taken to a hospital. When cops arrived, Pooh had left the scene. There were reports that someone stole $40,000 from Pooh, but he denied them, writing, “False allegations nothing never been took from me.” Pooh Shiesty denies allegations that somebody took $40k that was hanging out his pockets while performing in Miami. “False allegations nothing never been took from me” pic.twitter.com/c9HbfH9aSh — Hip Hop Ties (@HipHopTies) May 31, 2021 The arrest comes just months after the “Back in Blood” rapper was arrested in connection to an October shooting at Bay Harbor Islands where he was charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and armed battery. Last month, Pooh released a Spring Deluxe version of his mixtape Shiesty Season featuring Lil Baby and G Herbo. Gucci Mane has also enlisted his 1017 Records signee for his new single, which drops Friday.
  11. Yeezy season is approaching. In honor of his 44th birthday on Tuesday, Kanye West dropped the first piece from his highly-anticipated Gap collection. And he may also have a new album on the way. His manager Abou “Bu” Thiam teased the upcoming project, which is reportedly titled West Day Ever. “WestDayEver. Album OTW!” Bu commented on Gap’s Instagram post. Bu, Kanye's manager, also confirmed a new album called West Day Ever! pic.twitter.com/MTIwW1r7Ca — CULTURE GENIUS (@20mintrack) June 8, 2021 Kanye first used the #WestDayEver hashtag a year ago when he announced his Gap deal. Prior to this, the Yeezy designer had been working on his oft-delayed album DONDA, the follow-up 2019’s Jesus Is King. The project, named after his late mother, was slated to drop last July before being delayed several times. On Tuesday, the first product from Kanye’s Yeezy Gap collaboration went on sale. The $200 unisex blue nylon puffer jacket sold out within hours of the pre-order and will ship later this fall. More pieces from the collection are expected to launch later this month. Kanye also received birthday wishes from his estranged wife Kim Kardashian. The beauty mogul, who filed for divorce from her husband in February, shared a childhood photo of Ye along with a family portrait. “Happy Birthday Love U for Life!” wrote Kim. pic.twitter.com/8gWamLPUmi — Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) June 8, 2021 Happy Birthday Love U for Life! pic.twitter.com/YK5mbZyAqD — Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) June 8, 2021
  12. The brother of Lil Durk was shot and killed outside a strip club near Chicago over the weekend. Now more details are emerging surrounding the fatal shooting. According to a report from WGN-TV, Dontay Banks Jr., better known as OTF DThang, was shot outside Club O, a strip club in Harvey, Ill., just after 12:20 a.m. Sunday (June 6). Banks was shot in the head and died at the scene. In a separate incident prior to the shooting, a police officer observed a club patron holding a gun. An altercation ensued and the officer sustained a gunshot injury from an unidentified suspect. He was taken to the hospital and released in good condition. Later in the night, police responded to a deadly shooting in the 100 block of West 155th Street which claimed the life of Sinica Price. Police believe that shooting may have been in retaliation. Authorities continue to investigate the series of shootings and no suspects are currently in custody. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Harvey Police Department. Lil Durk has not commented on his brother’s death, but friends including producer Murda Beatz and Chicago rapper Calboy mourned the loss on social media.

  13. T.I. is leaving the game behind. The Grand Hustle rapper has reiterated plans to release his “final album” Kill the King. He made the announcement at the end of his new video for “What It’s Come To,” revealing that the follow-up to last year’s The L.I.B.R.A. is “coming soon.” In the video, he addresses the numerous women who have accused him and his wife Tiny of sexual misconduct, insinuating that it’s all part of a plan to take them down. “I keep none against they will / If they leave, that’s they disadvantage,” raps Tip. “The object of the game is kill the king / So till the blade meet my neck on guillotine.” He questions the credibility of his accusers, who exchange text messages trying to frame the couple. “Ok y’all got stories about Tip & Tiny?” asks one woman, while another responds, “Oh I got all kinds of shit I can make up…” In a later scene, he mocks the lawyer representing several of the women, showing them at a press conference before a piano falls out of the sky and crushes them. Last month, the LAPD launched a criminal investigation after meeting with one of the couple’s accusers. T.I. and Tiny have strongly denied the allegations, while their lawyer says the claims are part of “a sordid shakedown campaign.”
  14. What a time to be alive. Drake and Future may have new music on the way. Champagne Papi took to Instagram on Monday night to share a couple photos of him in the lab with Hndrxx as well as Metro Boomin. He captioned the pics with three emojis including the wizard and owl. It’s unclear what they’re working on, but Drake’s followers have already started speculating, hoping for a sequel to their 2018 album What a Time to Be Alive. “WATTBA 2 We need it,” wrote one, while another added, “Please bless us with that WATTBA2 bruh.” Back in 2019, the duo teased a follow-up to their collaborative project, but it never came to fruition. Instead, Future released his Drake-assisted single “Life Is Good” in January 2020. Drake continues to work on his long-awaited album Certified Lover Boy, and seemed to hint that new music was dropping soon. “LOADING…” he captioned a solo photo of himself. The original What a Time to Be Alive arrived in September 2015 featuring production from Metro Boomin and Southside. It debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and spawned hits including “Jumpman.” Last month, the Artist of the Decade teased a song called “Fair Trade” that is believed to be from his CLB sessions.
  15. Earlier this year, Kehlani responded to rumors about her sexuality by officially coming out as a lesbian. As part of Facebook Watch’s “Pride On! Kehlani & Larray’s Excellent Pride Ride” special, the “Back Together” singer revealed how Javaughn Young-White, the father of her 2-year-old daughter, reacted when he learned about her sexual orientation. In March 2019, the two welcomed a baby girl named Adeya Nomi. “I have a 2-year-old daughter…She’s the best,” said Kehlani, according to Complex. “Me and her dad are like really, really close friends, and the decision to start a family was really easy for us because we both believed in each other’s ability to be good parents.” She said that Young-White has remained a supportive friend and father. “We just focus on being a team, honestly, and when I was able to tell him, like, I’ve come to newer terms with my sexuality and he’s super, super, super supportive,” she added. Kehlani also revealed that she and Young-White have tried to normalize parental relationships around their daughter. “Like usually where people would bring up ‘mom and dad,’ we also say ‘mom and mom’ and ‘dad and dad,'” she said. While on Instagram Live with her friend on Easter Sunday, Kehlani announced that she was gay. “You wanna know what’s new about me? I finally know I’m a lesbian!” she said. In a later TikTok video, she confirmed her sexuality. “Well, it’s fu**ing true. I am gay, g-gay, gay, gay.” Kehlani officially comes out as a lesbian in new TikTok. pic.twitter.com/P1R8KJK34c — Pop Crave (@PopCrave) April 22, 2021
  16. Teyana Taylor is the Sexiest Woman Alive. Maxim has crowned the R&B songstress atop its annual list of the Sexiest Women Alive. The 30-year-old wife and mother of two shows off her natural beauty and hot body in a stunning shoot for the magazine’s Hot 100 issue. Taking to Instagram, Teyana reflected on becoming the first Black woman to land the cover. “Somebody pinch me!!!! Maxim Hot 100 to be named the ‘Sexiest Woman alive’ by literally living in the skin I’m in. WOW….” she wrote. Teyana, who announced that she was quitting music last year, was admittedly nervous to go back in front of the lens after working behind the scenes as a music video director. “Stepping back in front of the lens has been a journey of self-reflection and self-confidence,” she said. “Living up to name and title of this shoot wholeheartedly made me nervous. As a entrepreneur, wife, a busy mother of two & working behind the lens in my director bag I tend to hide behind my sweats & vintage tees…So I as you can see I don’t have much time to be and feel sexy.” She arrived to the set in sweatpants and a beanie after dropping her daughter Junie off at school, and was surprised when the photographer Gilles Bensimon told her not to get glammed up and to remain in her same clothes without makeup. She hesitated at first, but agreed. “I was like SO LET ME UNDERSTAND THIS…I WILL BE THE SEXIEST Woman Alive IN SWEATS AND A SKULLY?” recalled Teyana. “As confused as I was my heart also melted…Embrace and love yourselves for who & what you are because only the purest heart shines through.” The Coming 2 America actress joins past Maxim Hot 100 cover stars including Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, Christina Aguilera, Hailey Baldwin, and more. Teyana and her husband Iman Shumpert are headed back to reality television. The couple, who starred in VH1’s 2018 reality series “Teyana & Iman,” will give fans “an unfiltered behind-the-scenes look at their lives juggling music, fashion, business, and family” on their upcoming E! reality show “We Got Love: Iman & Teyana.”
  17. JAY-Z and Meek Mill went all out for Robert Kraft’s birthday. The Roc Nation duo chipped in to buy the New England Patriots owner a Bentley in honor of his 80th birthday. In a video clip, which Meek shared on Instagram, Philadelphia 76ers co-owner Michael Rubin showed up at Kraft’s house and presented his billionaire pal with the blue drop-top, much to his surprise. “How the fudge did you get it, ’cause we couldn’t get it?” Kraft asks Rubin, who responds, “We have resources.” The car was driven on a flatbed from Florida and was customized especially for Kraft, who was overwhelmed with gratitude. “Drop top bent for Kraft,” wrote Meek. “awwwwww lol hbd robert.” In 2019, JAY-Z and Meek teamed up with Kraft to launch REFORM Alliance, a criminal justice advocacy group whose mission is to reduce the number of people unjustly under the control of the criminal justice system. Watch the big surprise below.
  18. Polo G is getting warmed up. Ahead of his album release, the Chicago rapper paid a visit to Power 106’s “L.A. Leakers” where he dropped a freestyle over DMX’s “Ruff Ryders’ Anthem.” “Same house as Eazy-E, young ni**a with a attitude / Book and street smart, I was trappin’ at the school,” raps Polo, who lived in the late N.W.A icon’s house in Calabasas. “It’s crazy to me ’cause I don’t f**k with the police either,” he later said. Polo’s new album Hall of Fame arrives Friday featuring Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne, Roddy Ricch, DaBaby, Rod Wave, Young Thug, Lil Durk, and more. Watch Polo shut ’em down with his explosive flow.
  19. Expect Snoh this summer. Snoh Aalegra has announced that her highly-anticipated new album Temporary Highs in the Violet Skies will arrive July 8. She shared the tracklist for the follow-up to her 2019 sophomore album Ugh, Those Feels Again. The 15-track set, which is now available for pre-order, features two appearances from Tyler, the Creator (“Neon Peach,” “In the Moment”), with contributions from The Neptunes, Terrace Martin, PJ Morton, James Fauntleroy, and more.

  20. Even in the worst of times, 6ix9ine continues to be disrespectful. Lil Durk’s brother DThang was reportedly shot and killed outside a Chicago nightclub on Saturday at age 32. While friends of Durk have expressed their sympathy in the wake of the tragedy, Tekashi decided to go after his rival. In response to a headline on DJ Akademiks’ Instagram page, Tekashi mocked the Chicago rapper. “@lildurk tell the truth about yo Gang man they really dyin,” he commented alongside several laughing emojis. 6ix9ine reacts to the death of Lil Durk’s brother: pic.twitter.com/XXuyWFUZNp — WickedViral (@WickedViralTV) June 6, 2021 The notorious troll left a series of other disrespectful comments across social media including on Durk’s post promoting his Voice of the Heroes merch. “Your brother just died and you want to sell sweaters,” he wrote with laughing emojis. not 6ix9ine trolling durk again pic.twitter.com/aWvOzhTLTo — (@deji_4pf) June 6, 2021 In another comment, he added, “Time to smoke a NEW pack .. it’s like every week.. I didn’t even finish enjoying smoking [King] Von yet YALL dying to fast.” Ahhhhh man – chill @6ix9ine – reacting to Lil Durk losing his brother OTF DThang to gun violence. pic.twitter.com/O2ZEFxirHh — SOHH (@sohh) June 7, 2021 6ix9ine disses Lil Durk’s only sibling/blood brother OTF DThang after he was just killed, “U gotta love it smoking on Dthang (no homo)” pic.twitter.com/WFW3ebfVyq — traprapandrnb (@traprapandrnb) June 6, 2021 Earlier this year, Tekashi taunted Durk over the death of his artist King Von and his cousin Nuski. “You ain’t killed shit, you let your man’s die,” he rapped on “ZAZA.” “They killed your cousin and your man and you still ain’t do shit.” Durk, who once said that 6ix9ine’s camp offered him $3 million to keep their feud going, has vowed to never address 6ix9ine again. “I ain’t gone never respond to this ni**a ever fu**in’ again,” he wrote in August after seemingly dissing Tekashi on Drake’s “Laugh Now Cry Later.”
  21. There’s no love lost between Mariah Carey and JAY-Z. Over the weekend, it was reported that the singer split with her management team at Roc Nation after an “explosive meeting” with JAY-Z. According to The Sun, the stars had a “huge fight” about the future of Carey’s career, which reportedly led her to seek new management. But the two remain on good terms despite the rumors. Taking to Twitter on Monday, Mariah shut down claims of a fallout while sharing a video clip from her 1999 collaboration with JAY-Z, “Heartbreaker.” “The only ‘explosive’ situation I’d ever ‘get into’ with Hov is a creative tangent, such as our #1 song ‘Heartbreaker’!!” tweeted Carey before referencing JAY-Z’s “Izzo (H.O.V.A.)” lyric. “To the people who make up these lies I say ‘Poof! –Vamoose, sonofa*****’!” The only “explosive” situation I’d ever “get into” with Hov is a creative tangent, such as our #1 song “Heartbreaker”!! To the people who make up these lies I say “Poof! –Vamoose, sonofa*****”! pic.twitter.com/v8TGNuOAnZ — Mariah Carey (@MariahCarey) June 7, 2021 While reports of a riff are false, Carey has seemingly parted ways with Roc Nation after three and a half years. She is no longer listed on the company’s website and is said to have already begun “talking to other managers and thinks she has found someone who she feels has full belief in her.” She is reportedly working on a “heavily R&B-influenced album” as well as an accompanying world tour for next year. But first, Mariah is set to release new music. She has teamed up with production duo Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis on their new single “Somewhat Loved,” which debuts June 10.
  22. Snoop Dogg is taking a seat at the table. The rap icon has officially joined Def Jam Records as Executive Creative and Strategic Consultant. In his new role, Snoop will strategically work across the label’s executive team and artist roster. As a senior strategic advisor, he will focus on A&R and creative development, reporting to Universal Music Group Chairman and CEO Sir Lucian Grainge and Def Jam interim Chairman and CEO Jeffrey Harleston. “We’re thrilled that the one and only Snoop Dogg is bringing his deep industry experience, strong relationships, boundless creativity and infectious energy to Def Jam,” said Grainge. “I have had the pleasure knowing and working with Snoop Dogg for more than 20 years,” added Harleston. “Not only does Snoop understand what it takes to be a successful artist, he is one of the most creative, strategic and entrepreneurial people I know. Snoop has a genuine passion for the label and the culture, and we are all excited to have Snoop join the Def Jam family.” In a video message, the 49-year-old rapper–born Calvin Broadus Jr.–explained that he signed with Death Row, but he always wanted to be a part of the Def Jam legacy. “I always had a dream to be on Def Jam and to be in the place that hip-hop was originated,” said Snoop, who will serve as a mentor for Def Jam’s roster of talent. “My main focus on Def Jam Records was to go and to help the artists and give them love and wisdom and guidance and understanding and teach them some tricks that I learnt in the game,” he explained. “To diversity their portfolios, to not just be rappers and not just be artists, but to be superstars, superheroes so to speak.” In the future, Snoop said to expect “great music videos, TV shows, content, video games, and oh yeah, most important, hit records.” Snoop, who will operate out of his hometown of Los Angeles (“Def Jam West, by the way”), even teased a new album of his own. “F**k around and get a Snoop Dogg record, you never know.”
  23. Yeah, that’s it. After topping the charts with “Peaches,” Justin Bieber calls on a trio of OGs—Ludacris, Usher, and Snoop Dogg—for the official remix to his chart-topping hit, which originally featured Daniel Caesar and Giveon. Luda reps the Peach State with a sweet verse followed by his fellow Georgian, Usher, who adds his smooth touch (“Big apple, but I love that peach,” he sings). The King of the West Coast blazes up a smoking verse of his own. “You know I got it on me / Finest only,” raps Snoop before declaring himself the “ambassador of legalization.” “Peaches,” which appears on Bieber’s album Justice, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and is currently No. 6 on the chart. Bieber will bring “Peaches” to an arena near you when he returns to the road on his “Justice World Tour” starting in February 2022.

On Sunday (June 6), the Houston rapper shared a video alongside a message for her Hotties. “IM BACK HOTTIES ADDRESS ME AS MS SNOW,” she captioned the IG post. In the clip, the three-time Grammy winner can be seen emerging from her cryogenic slumber. She opens her eyes while wearing an oxygen mask as a technician monitors her mental health, body, confidence, bars, knees, and one level called Tina Snow. While her exact plans remain unclear, fans have speculated that she is reviving her alter ego who she introduced on her 2018 EP Tina Snow, which spawned the hit “Big Ole Freak.” On April 22, Megan announced that she was taking a hiatus. Her team took over her social media accounts during her absence. “Megan Thee Stallion is recharging! Due to the demands of the Hot Girl lifestyle, Meg has now entered a period of regeneration to prepare for what’s next,” read the message, while teasing her comeback. “Thee Hotties lead a brave RESISTANCE in anticipation for the return of their Fearless Captain!” In November, Megan released her chart-topping debut album Good News, which featured the smash “Savage (Remix)” with Beyoncé.
