The Crown Complex in Fayetteville, NC will never be the same again! J.Cole did what most artist don't do, by shining light on his hometown and getting it exposure in the entertainment industry! During the last stop on the Forest Hill Drive Tour, Cole performed his entire new album, a few bangers from The Warm Up and then blessed the fans with surprise performances that they were not ready for!
When I say they, I MEAN ME!
As a fan of J.Cole and his movement and progression in the industry, I have always supported him. But to think who could show up to Fayetteville,NC just to be a guest on the show, no one came to mind. It's weird, my own bestfriend made a comment saying "I would love to see Drake in Concert". Low and behold, here comes Drake!!!!!
Performing hits like "Engery", "Know Yourself" and "Back to Back". If that wasn't enough! Then the GOAT himself Jay- Z came to bless the stage!!
According to HOV, "performing for you has been a plan from the beginning. Cole said once he goes platinum, that all he ask is for me to come and perform for his hometown".
For the state of NC, this was a night that will never be forgotten!

I guess there are some perks to dating a Kardashian after all! Well, atlas for James Harden! His now boo Khloe threw him a lavish 26th Birthday party on a yacht! She didn't even do that for French, so she must be really feeling this Houston Rocket.
The party was so exclusive it was said to be held on the Fantasea Yacht docked in Marina Del Rey, California. More than 200 guests were instructed to wear white and each person was greeted with a glass of bubbly aboard the yacht.
Many were in attendance from Karreuche, Kim, Kanye, Kylie, Tyga, Christina Milian, Kyrie Irving and more!

Amy Schumer gets cooler and cooler each day!
One to make sure people KNO that she could careless about how they feel, Schumer is always quick to push the evelope!
Earlier this week, she joined rapper Talib Kweli on stage and jumped in to rap the end of the second verse of Kanye’s “Get ‘Em High”.
In a video posted on IG, Amy is dancing as Talib performs. Then, just before she kicks off her half of the verse, she pulls the mic off of the stand and joins Talib in the center of the stage.
Turn Up AMY!
When an artist decides to take time off, just KNO that some heat is on the way! As for August Alsina, I think that's exactly what's about to happen. The New Orleans native has been hiding lately since the release of "Hip Hop" and it's said that he's working on an album set to release this fall. The album is called "This Thing Called Life" and the second single off the album was just released!
Ironically, Alsina teams up with another NO native for this track entitled "Why I do It". The ironic part is that the track is featurign Lil Wayne! Right... with all the mess he's been going through and to have such longevity in the game, we all want to KNO why you do it!
Enjoy the track below:
By the looks of this cover art, Fetty Wap is going to let his fans go deep into his being for his debut album. Granted, I could be embellishing a little but with 4 singles on the Top 100, you never KNO what you will get!
His self titled debut album is set to be released on September 25th. To showcase the emotion behind this album, Fetty released a video to reveal the cover. Check it out!
It's about time! We were getting worried that it wasn't true! Rememeber when I told you that Selena Gomez was set to appear on stage with her gal pal Taylor wduring the tour?
Well, it HAPPENED!
It was a night of short shorts and thigh high boots!
Taylor Swift was taking no prisioners with her last show at the Staples Center, and to make sure it was one for the books, she pulled out all the stops! Let's start with the basics, Selena and Taylor performed “Good For You” together, then she brought out Lisa Kudrow for a rendition of “Smelly Cat,” and lastly killed the show by closing out with Justin Timberlake.
Crazy thing is, I was just talking about when we were going to see JT again!
Could it be? Amber Rose and Blac Chyna with their own reality tv show? I mean it makes sense! If Tyga can get a show doing completely nothing, his baby mama sure can!
According to TMZ:
Amber Rose and Blac Chyna are getting their own MTV reality show, TMZ has learned.
We’re told it’s close to being a done deal with contracts on the table.
Both women have a lot in common … recently single, working mothers with high-profile rappers for baby daddys and money in the bank. They also have past love affairs with the stripper pole.
Sources close to production say the show won’t be ratchet … it’ll focus on Amber and Chyna taking care of their kids while juggling work, including club appearances.
With new business ventures underway, and the constant beef with the Kardashians... this may just make for great tv!
Oh wait, they said no ratchetness lol
Hollywood was most definitely hot last night!
Rumors have been circulating around about Wiz Khalifa and Rita Ora being a pair. But maybe, just maybe they are wrong!
While performing at The El Rey in LA, Rita was joined on stage by Wiz for what seemed to be just a friendly situation.
It's clear that there little run in at the Teen Choice Awards was just to get everything together for this moment!
Or WAS it???
Wiz then posted this on IG.......
Just a few hours before 5 Seconds of Summer was going to release their new song on Australia’s Shazam Top 20, the song was leaked to the masses! The internet has been none stop buzzing over "Jet Black Heart"! Granted the hype is pushing the song even more, but dang, it couldn't be done the right way? lol
Of course not! When the people are waiting, there is always a way to get what you want! The song is now available on iTunes and below is a snippet of the lyrics!
Go get it now!
Everybody’s got their demons
Even wide awake or dreaming
I’m the one who ends up leaving
Make it okay
See a way I wanna fight it
See a match I wanna strike it
Every fire I’ve ignited
Fade into grey
But now that I’m broken
Now that you know it
Caught up in a moment
Can you see inside?
Never thought I would see the day when a journalist would take fire on his coworkers over the stress of life, but things happen that way. At least in the case of Alison Parker, Adam Ward and Vester Flanagan.
41 year old journalist, Flanagan, opened fire on his co workers, Alison Parker 24, and Adam Ward 27 during a live interview in Virginia.
After opening fire, Flanagan faxed the news station 23 page document, referred to as a "suicide note" detailing why he decided to commit murder. In the document, he alleged that he had been a victim of discrimination and harassment in his past, which is what led him to eventually open fire. According to ABC News, “He says he has suffered racial discrimination, sexual harassment and bullying at work. He says he has been attacked by black men and white females. He talks about how he was attacked for being a gay, black man.”
Budding new artist Jay IDK is taking the industry to new levels. Breaking down the barriers that stand in front of him and not taking NO for an answer! Jay IDK is said to "bridge the gap between both the conscious and cool, with his highly anticipated debut body of work, SubTrap."
According to this DMV native, his new project got it's name by being "trap music with substance". You KNO, that music that you can bounce and think to! The forthcoming album gives an unbiased account of life on both sides of the drug game.
This is just the beginning for Jay IDK, with so much more to come!
