Talib Kweli Hints at Kanye West & Yasiin Bey Collaboration

New music rumors continue to surround Kanye West. With a solo album, G.O.O.D. Music compilation, and Kid Cudi joint project presumably in the works, there is now speculation of a Black Star-Yeezy collaboration.

On Wednesday (Jan. 31), Talib Kweli shared a photo of Kanye, Yasiin Bey, and Dave Chappelle. The image finds ‘Ye writing on a yellow paper while the others look on. Kweli captioned the flick: “2018 is looking good…”

2018 is looking good…

A post shared by Talib Kweli (@talibkweli) on Jan 31, 2018 at 8:58am PST

West and Kweli go way back. Throughout the years, the two worked together on a variety of songs, including “Get Em High” and “In the Mood.” The same can be said for Yeezy and Mos, who’ve collaborated on “Two Words” and “Drunk and Hot Girls.” Meanwhile, Talib and Yasiin once comprised the renowned Black Star duo.

Chappelle, who performed with Kendrick Lamar at the Grammys this weekend, has been an avid fan of all three artists for years. In fact, he recruited all three to appear on his iconic “Chappelle’s Show” and in his 2005 documentary, Dave Chappelle’s Block Party.

JAY-Z Files Trademarks for Restaurant & Department Store

Hola, Hovino! JAY-Z, who once said he is not a businessman, but rather a business, man, is now looking to expand his empire to include a restaurant and department store.

According to new legal filings (via The Blast), the Roc Nation boss is trying to trademark “Hovino” under his S. Carter Enterprises company. The trademark is for “restaurant and café services, carry-out restaurant services, pubs, cocktail lounges, wine bars, and more.”

Jigga is no stranger to this world. In fact, he owns the famous 40/40 Club, which he opened in 2003 with his partner Juan Perez. In the past, Hov and his wife Beyoncé have also celebrated a vegan diet, so some speculate the restaurant could be rooted in plant-based recipes. That remains to be seen.

Additionally, TMZ reports that the multimillionaire and his partner Emory Jones are also looking to expand their Paper Planes brand to include department stores, an online shopping site, musical recordings, gym bags, tour books, jewelry, and a cosmetic line.

JAY-Z recently also filed documents to trademark Jaybo, the animated character from his “Story of O.J.” music video. The trademark covers T-shirts, sweaters, hats, blankets, dinnerware, mugs, cocktail shakers, and more. Can’t knock the hustle.
