Kodak Black‘s Painting Pictures drops tomorrow, and WorldStarHipHop released a trailer for an upcoming documentary on the rapper called Project Baby.
In the 32-second-clip, you’ll see Kodak strolling through the tropics of Florida, while he talks about his songwriting process.
“A n—- blood raw with it. I don’t sugarcoat,” he said. “I talk about the struggle, I talk about how I got it now … I talk about everything.
The 19-year-old also said that whether or not you’ve been through the same things he has, you’ll still be able to relate to his music based on the presentation of it.
“Even if you haven’t been through none of that sh–, when you listening to my sh– you gonna feel like you been though it,” explained Kodak. “It’s like a movie. I feel like we in this movie right now. I don’t rap I illustrate.”
Both Painting Pictures and the Project Baby documentary drops on Friday (March 31), and you can check out the trailer above.
Jennifer Lopez got some custom hoverboards for her Vegas show, but didn't keep her end of the bargain says the company that made the gear.
Sidekick Group Corp says it shipped out 42 hoverboards for J Lo and her dancers to use in her "All I Have" show at Planet Hollywood Las Vegas. The company says it didn't charge cash, but their signed contract did require Jennifer to do a few things in return.
According to the lawsuit just filed Jlo was supposed to do promotional posts for Sidekick on Instagram or Twitter, once every 3 months. Sidekick says she only posted once, and later deleted it.
The company says it's out $54,390 for the boards, which it says were customized for the show. It's suing to get back that investment, plus a few more bucks.
Sidekick threatened to sue Seahawks superstar Richard Sherman a year ago, claiming he also reneged on a promotional deal.
If they’d put this scene in a movie, you’d have gotten pissed off because you thought it was too fake.
But this happend to a woman known as @Msixelaa on Twitter—but now to the rest of the world is simply UberBae —actually had to drop her boyfriend’s side chick at his apartment.
Writing on Twitter this week, the 24-year-old said: “So I drive for uber why I just pick this girl up and drop her off to a d**k appointment and the d**k appointment was my mans house.”
Msixelaa told her followers how she had stayed at her boyfriend’s the night before and he had packed a bag to go “see his mum” after she left.
She said: “We parted ways earlier this morning from his apartment he got in his car I got in mine he drove off like he was going to the airport.”
As the car pulled up to the apartment complex, the girl said recognised her guy’s car outside, and the horrific truth started to dawn on the Uber driver.
She said: “His ass come out the house ready to assist with luggage AND THE DEVIL ROSE UP OUT OF ME LIKE ARE YOU DEAD ASS RIGHT NOW he runs.”
Unable to control her rage, she said confronted her boyfriend “beating his ass”.
The new woman even tried to defend the boyfriend by hitting the Uber driver.
The tale ended with the Twitter user saying she drove off with the girl’s luggage and is now embracing single life.
The shocking tale has struck a chord with online readers who have retweeted her story thousands of times and even given her a new nickname – #UberBae.
One user said: “#uberbae this story was funny but I would’ve killed them both just because.
Another said: “if I learned anything from #UberBae, it’s that God will lead you right where you need to be when you need to be there."
Alice Cooper, is getting his very own pinball machine courtesy of Spooky Pinball LLC, the same company that created Rob Zombie‘s “Spookshow International” pinball machine!
“Alice Cooper’s Nightmare Castle” will feature “classic and modern” music from the icon, not just a greatest hits type package. Spooky Pinball has chosen the songs that work best in context of the game’s theme with additional ambiance provided by Piggy D from Rob Zombie’s band and artwork from Jeff Zornow.
A teaser for the pinball machine can be seen above where the musician states, “Hello, this is Alice Cooper. When I’m not onstage blasting nearly 50 years of music and getting my head chopped off every night, I tend to kick back. Some of you may know I’m quite the golfer; that’s how I relax. But when I’m really feeling crazy, I play pinball! The speed, the chaos, the mayhem, the brutality of that ball flying around out of control makes me happy! That’s why I’m excited to announce I’m finally getting my own pinball machine. I know you’ll like it because it’s all about me; my songs, my voice, my world — it’s all about me!”
Since the game is still being developed, Spooky Pinball is not accepting deposits from potential buyers just yet. More purchasing information will come when there is a full game to display, according to a post on Facebook page of the company, which is targeting a fall 2017 release.
Catch Alice Cooper on tour this summer with the equally legendary Deep Purple. The North American trek will run from Aug. 12 through Sept. 10 and a full list of stops can be found at our 2017 Guide to Rock + Metal Tours.
Kendrick Lamar just debuted “Humble,” a brand new song and video from his forthcoming project. Directed by Dave Meyers & the Little Homies (K. Dot himself and TDE’s Dave Free), the video features a litany of striking visuals that suggest that Kendrick is ready to unleash another commanding artistic statement on this new project due in April.
“Humble” was produced by Mike WiLL Made-It and follows “The Heart Part 4,” which was released last week.
Kendrick has been riding a wave of critical acclaim for virtually his entire career, and it reached a peak following the success of 2015s To Pimp A Butterfly. Last year, he released the compilation untitled unmastered, made up of leftovers from TPAB sessions.

Mike WiLL Made-It has dropped his new compilation Ransom 2. The star-studded project features guest appearances from Kendrick Lamar, Rihanna and Pharrell Williams.
The Atlanta producer just released a new visual for the Big Sean-assisted song, “On the Come Up.” The clip features Big Sean spitting bars with symbolic images throughout. There are scenes of a young kid drumming in the bucket and then later he’s sitting in the back of Mike’s limo with two gorgeous babes.
One of the more politically-charged scenes come near the end, when police corner a Hispanic man with his hands behind his head. But the situation turns deadly when shots are fired and a large mob chase a police officer to the Los Angeles River.
Mike’s “On the Come Up” video follows his party-themed clip for “Gucci on My” featuring 21 Savage, YG and Migos.
Green Day played a key role in the explosion of punk in the Bay Area in California and they’ll continue to play a key role in promoting the scene, coming on board to help distribute the new film Turn It Around: The Story of East Bay Punk.
The band is working with Abramorama, who are releasing the film, serving as executive producers on the project and also providing some of the interviews on the East Bay punk scene that are included in the documentary. Though no dates have been announced as of yet, the movie will screen in theaters in North America this summer, coinciding with Green Day continuing their “Revolution Radio” world tour.
“Turn it Around gave us the opportunity to tell the story of the East Bay punk rock scene, a scene that’s a sacred thing to me, Mike and Tré and to a lot of others who were there at the founding and who helped to shape the genre,” said Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong. “We’re proud to bring the history of this movement to the world and hope the film inspires people to create their own music and to build an artistic community.”
Abramorama’s West Coast Head of Acquisitions & Business Development Evan Saxon and EVP & CCO Karol Martesko-Fenster added, “It’s an honor to again be entrusted by Green Day to engineer the release of their films. Turn It Around, directed by Corbett Redford, is a documentary very dear to the band and gives fans of all kinds of music an inside look at the fertile East Bay Punk scene from which Green Day rose to be one of the biggest bands on the planet.”
The movie is narrated by Iggy Pop and directed and produced by Corbett Redford. The film delves deep, exploring the history of the scene through the bands, record labels and venues that helped it thrive.
Stay tuned to the East Bay Punk website for information on the film and where it will screen.
Rihanna appears in the sweeping sci-fi epic, ‘Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets’ co-starring Dane DeHaan and Cara Delevigne (plus Clive Owens, John Goodman and Kris Wu among others), is an original — for once, not a remake or a sequel! — directed by Luc Besson (The Fifth Element, The Professional), based on the comic series Valérian and Laureline.
Rihanna plays the part of Bubble, “a shapeshifting entertainer,” which means this role won’t be much of a stretch from her usual day job. She’s only in this new trailer for a half-second after the 2-minute mark, but her quick-change Cabaret-to-naughty-nurse moment alone is worth the price of admission.
Watch the trailer due out in July, below:
Will Smith and the Fresh Prince gang recently reunited , and Alfonso Ribeiro, who played Carlton Banks on the series, posted a photo of them on the Inter-web. The actress who played the original Aunt Vivian on the show, Janet Hubert, seems to be still bitter.
Hubert wasn't in the reunion photo, and she spoke negatively about the cast on Facebook.
"I know the media hoe Alphonso Ribero has posted his so called reunion photo," wrote Hubert, misspelling Ribeiro's name. "Folks keep telling me about it. He was always the ass wipe for Will."
She continued, "There will never be a true reunion of the Fresh Prince. I have no interest in seeing any of these people on that kind of level."
Hubert said that while she is "not offended" by the picture, it prompts her to "take some meetings in Hollywood" to pitch her memoir Perfection Is Not a Sitcom Mom, which she says would tell the behind-the-scenes story of the '90s show. She was replaced as Aunt Viv by Daphne Maxwell Reid after rumored problems with Smith.
This isn't the first time Hubert has criticized someone on the series. When Jada Pinkett Smith said she would partake in the #OscarsSoWhite boycott last year after her husband was snubbed, Hubert mocked the couple.
"You ain't Barack and Michelle Obama," she said, addressing Jada Pinkett Smith. "And y'all need to get over yourselves. You have a huge production company that you only produce your friends and family and yourself. So you are a part of Hollywood, you are part of the system that is unfair to other actors. So get real."
