Video: Migos feat. Drake – ‘Walk It Talk It’

Love, peace, and Culture. Fresh off his remix to N.E.R.D and Rihanna’s “Lemon,” Drake takes it back with Migos in the soul-filled video for “Walk It Talk It.”

Inspired by “Soul Train,” the Migos and Daps-directed visual finds Quavo, Takeoff, and Offset on set of a ’70s show called “Culture Ride.” Looking fresh in their retro attire, the trio performs on stage, while guests get down to the funky sounds underneath the disco ball.

Jamie Foxx plays the Don Cornelius-like host, Ron Delirious, and Drake shows up to the soul fest with a Jheri curl. He spits his verse and busts some moves down the “Culture Ride” line before joining Migos on stage.

Two contestants even play the famed Scramble Board and answer the question, “Which way does the Culture Ride go?” The answer, of course, is “Dat way.”

“Walk It Talk It” is the latest single off Migos’ album Culture II, which debuted at No. 1 in February.

The Game Calls 6ix9ine a ‘Fake Blood’

The Game has beef with 6ix9ine.

The Compton rapper takes on the controversial newcomer following his beef with Star. During a recent “16 Bars” interview, Game addressed the burgeoning rapper’s California beefs.

“[6ix9ine] can do whatever he wants to do,” he said. “I’m pretty sure he knows there can be consequences to his actions…If you say the wrong thing, there are gonna be people who are offended and shit might happen.”

Game made his disdain more clear during a concert, where he asked fans to chant: “Fuck 6ix9ine! Fake-ass Blood!”

Game then took to Instagram, where he posted photos of 6ix9ine as a youth. The controversial upstart is on blue bandana bedsheets in one photo and wearing a sweater around his neck in another. His captions for both images are lengthy and profanity-laced.

“He disrespected my city & a rag I put in my pocket, lost countless homies, relatives & my own brother over. A Color & way of life I almost died over,” he wrote. “Its ni**as all over the world who take this blood shit serious & they are not gone be playing these games when they catch you.”

“stop playing wit this blood shit before somebody hurt yo mamas only daughter,” he added. “You a nice guy, look at that smile…cut the tuff shit out before it’s too late.”

Tekashi responded with an Instagram statement of his own: “I turned ‘gangsters’ into clout chasers. I invite all y’all to my dick. A kid with rainbow hair got the whole industry right now aggravated.” The message could have also been directed at several other foes, including J Prince Jr. and Baby Jay Prince, who are embroiled in a similar dispute.

69 also posted an old video of Game on “Change of Heart.” “When u was 21 u was crying over a bitch,” he wrote. “I BEEN GANGBANGIN AS A YOUNGIN. U worked out and got ‘tuff’ and turned blood.”

6ix9ine has become quite a controversial figure. Last year, it was revealed that he pled guilty to three felony counts of Use of a Child in a Sexual Performance. His gang ties have also been questioned by several people, including The Game.

Controversy hasn’t stopped 69’s sales. His debut album DAY69 dropped last month and opened at No. 4 on the Billboard 200.

Blue Ivy Bids $19,000 at Wearable Art Gala

Blue Ivy, accomplished rapper, dancer, and actress, is now an avid art collector too.

JAY-Z and Beyoncé’s adorable 6-year-old bid $19,000 on “Young Sidney,” an art piece by Tiffanie Anderson, at Tina Lawson’s 2nd Annual Wearable Art Gala in Los Angeles on Saturday (March 17).

Blue raised her bid from $17,000 to $19,000 while mom and dad proudly looked on. Bidding began at $10,000 for the broken glass piece, which was inspired by Sidney Poitier. The work was originally valued at $16,000.

“Let me tell you what’s happening,” said host Star Jones, who acted as the auctioneer. “[Blue’s] mother and father have been talking about how you gather art and that is a big deal for African-Americans.”

Beyoncé also earned the 2018 Waco Theater Center Humanitarian Award. “I feel really full,” said an emotional Bey. “I feel so blessed and fortunate…I never thought people should receive awards like this because, in my opinion, giving is reward enough.”

Former First Lady Michelle Obama celebrated Bey’s equity, justice, and fairness efforts in a video that played at the event. “I love you,” she said. “I am inspired by you. And I’m so honored and proud…Honey, you give us the courage to reach out across every divide.”

Blue Ivy penned a handwritten note to congratulate her mother. “Thank you for my brother and sister,” she wrote. “Thank you for loving me and Daddy. But most of all, thank you for being you. I love you.”

Blue also praised her grandmother, who received the Everyday People Award. “I love you. Thank you for creating my daddy. You make me happy. I want to have a heart as big as yours.”

The 8-minute Spanglish banger, which premiered during OVOSOUND Radio on Saturday (March 17), now features 21 Savage, Gucci Mane, French Montana, Bad Bunny, J Balvin, and Ozuna.

“Pump went to Harvard so fuck it, I’m going to Yale,” raps El Gato Guwop, Mustafa the 3rd. “Free Meek Mill,” he adds. “Free all my ni**as in jail.”

It’s a global party. In between English-only verses, Latin trap stars Balvin, Bunny, and Ozuna add some Spanish flavor, with references to Medellin, President Obama, and more.

Cardi B to Perform on ‘SNL’ in April

“SNL” is about to party with Cardi.

The “Bodak Yellow” rapper will serve as musical guest on the show’s April 7 episode, with host Chadwick Boseman of Black Panther fame.

This will be Cardi’s “SNL” debut, but that hasn’t stopped her from being an influence on the late-night program. Actress Tiffany Haddish impersonated Bardi in a skit about The Lion King auditions in November.

Cardi is planning to release her highly-anticipated debut album next month featuring the chart-topping smash “Bodak Yellow” and gold-certitified single “Bartier Cardi.”

The Bronx bombshell was scheduled to release a video for the latter during VH1’s “Love & Hip-Hop: New York” reunion special last week, but it has been delayed.

The “SNL” news also follows pregnancy rumors. Although Cardi and her fiancé Offset have denied those reports, sources say they are expecting a baby in July. Still, Bardi is scheduled to perform at Coachella in April and she’s planning to tour with Bruno Mars in September.
