It's been a busy couple of days on the Blog, primarily featuring new interviews thanks to Kanye West(who's as engaging as ever) and Drake(who talked to everybody today, huh?). But let's get to the music, shall we? I just want to spotlight a couple artistic new music videos in this space, leading off with Drizzy's surprise action-packed, guns ablazing, kidnap rescue short film for "Hold On, We're Going Home". He celebrates the release of Nothing Was The Same today by giving us a collective, "wait, what?" moment, but there's no denying that this video was entertaining.
The other couple big music video releases today were courtesy of A$AP Rocky, who makes a cameo in "Hold On" oh btw, for his "Fashion Killa", which sees Rihanna as his love interest, as directed by #Virgil Abloh# (I felt the hashtags were a nice touch.) Plus, Miley Mania continues as she stars in "23" with Juicy J & Wiz Khalifa for Mike Will's new video, where she dons of the jersey of the G.O.A.T. (and sparks cringes from Bulls fans everywhere). ICYMI, watch above, below, and hit all the categories for even more new music and interviews.
Alright, that's enough everyone. You can all go home and stop blogging about hip-hop for the day, because the most ridiculous thing that a rapper could've said has been said, and there is no topping it.
Yes, Juicy J, formerly of Three 6 Mafia, announced on Twitter that he will, uh... well he... sigh... I can't even sacrifice the dignity required to finish typing this sentence. In the man's own words:
"im giving out a 50k scholarships to the best chick that can twerk" - @therealjuicyj
This tweet has since been deleted, so maybe he was just joking (it was posted earlier this morning; yesterday morning he tweeted that he was "up early smoking weed." I feel this is relevant).
Honestly, I hope he is serious about this, not only because it would be awfully generous (emphasis on awful), but also because it would likely create a media shitstorm not seen since that whole colored wristband phenomenon.
TIBS UPDATE: This ridiculous story inspired me to create a MEME recapping today's events...
