The trailer for Fast & Furious 9: The Fast Saga, the ninth installment in the blockbuster series, has arrived. Soundtracked by Kids See Ghost’s “Feel the Love,” the nearly four-minute clip stars Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, John Cena, Charlize Theron, and Helen Mirren. The adrenaline-fueled film continues the legacy of the Fast franchise with more high-speed chases, explosions, and daring stunts.
Cardi B, who previously made her acting debut in last year’s Hustlers, also stars in the movie, but does not appear in the trailer. “I feel like I’m in a war zone,” said Cardi about her experience on set, while Vin promised, “You are gonna love her character in Fast 9.”
The trailer premiered at a star-studded event in Miami during Super Bowl weekend, which featured performances from Cardi, Ludacris, Wiz Khalifa, Charlie Puth, and Ozuna.
Fast & Furious 9 is the sequel to 2017’s The Fate of the Furious, which grossed $1.2 billion worldwide. It arrives in theaters on May 22.

Just days after Sean “Diddy” Combs slammed the Grammys for disrespecting black music, Mase took to Instagram to put his former label boss on blast for his “horrendous” business practices. In a lengthy Instagram post, Mase called out Puff for “robbing and tarnishing” him by taking his publishing in return for “peanuts” and not selling it back to him.
Mase posted a photo of Meek Mill who called out “different race men” for signing young black artists to “slave contracts” before taking Diddy to task for being a hypocrite and “enslaving” his own artists with unfair deals.
“@diddy I heard your #Grammy speech about how u are now for the artist and about how the artist must take back control. So I will be the first to take that initiative,” he began. “Also, before we ask of other ethnicities to do us right we should do us as black people better. Especially the creators.”
He claims that Diddy still owns his publishing from 24 years ago, for which he paid him $20,000. “I heard u loud and clear when u said that u are now for the artist and to that my response is if u want to see change you can make a change today by starting with yourself. Your past business practices knowingly has continued purposely starved your artist and been extremely unfair to the very same artist that helped u obtain that Icon Award on the iconic Badboy label. For example, u still got my publishing from 24 years ago in which u gave me $20k. Which makes me never want to work w/ u as any artist wouldn’t after u know someone is robbing you & tarnishing your name when u don’t want to comply w/ his horrendous business model.”

Despite his grievances, he said he was “forced” to perform with Diddy throughout the years. “However, people would always ask what’s up w/ Mase? So I would be forced to still perform to not look crazy when I was getting peanuts and the robbery would continue. So many great moments and people lives in music were lost. But again, I rode with u in the face of death without flinching & u still wouldn’t do right. I never said anything because I wanted to wait until I was financially great so I can ensured that I was addressing this from a pure place and not out of spite.”
Mase says he offered Diddy $2 million to buy back his publishing, but Diddy refused unless he was willing to match a higher offer. “To add insult, u keep screaming black excellence and love but I know love isn’t free. So I offered u 2m in cash just a few days ago to sell me back my publishing(as his biggest artist alive) that always show u respect for u giving me an opportunity at 19 yrs old. Your response was if I can match what the EUROPEAN GUY OFFER him that would be the only way I can get it back. Or else I can wait until I’m 50 years old and it will revert back to me from when I was 19 years old. You bought it for about 20k & I offered you 2m in cash.”
He added, “This is not black excellence at all. When our own race is enslaving us. If it’s about us owning, it can’t be about us owning each other. No More Hiding Behind ‘Love’. U CHANGED? GIVE THE ARTIST BACK THEIR $$$. So they can take care of their families.”
The post comes just days after Mase, along with Faith Evans, Carl Thomas, and Lil’ Kim, performed as part of a tribute to Diddy at The Recording Academy and Clive Davis’ Pre-Grammy Gala in Beverly Hills last weekend. Diddy thanked Mase, along with the rest of the Bad Boy roster, during his acceptance speech. He also put the Grammys on blast for not respecting hip-hop and black music. “Truth be told, hip-hop has never been respected by the Grammys. Black music has never been respected by the Grammys to the point that it should,” he said.
Mase is not the first Bad Boy signee to speak out against Diddy’s business practices. Aubrey O’Day also claimed that Danity Kane was never fairly compensated. “It wasn’t even money because we never make any,” she told MTV News in 2015. “We have two platinum albums [and] grossed over a million dollars on Christina Aguilera’s Back To Basics Tour…We came off that tour $15,000 in debt and grossed millions.”
The Migos rapper was quick to react after someone splashed his wife with champagne during Super Bowl weekend in Miami. The couple was partying around 3 a.m. at Booby Trap on the River strip club, and were standing on stage next to a pole when they were sprayed with champagne.
According to TMZ, Cardi wasn’t happy after getting wet, and an enraged Offset immediately began looking for the culprit before jumping into the crowd. Once he spotted him, he landed a punch and kept throwing punches until he was pulled away by security. He and Cardi then promptly left the club.
Earlier in the evening, they both performed at LIV nightclub as part of the events leading up to Super Bowl weekend. The two seemed to be having a good time when they first arrived at the strip club. Cardi danced on Offset, and he made it rain on her. Cardi documented the festivities on her Instagram Story and kept the party going past 5 a.m.
It’s been an eventful week for Offset. On Wednesday, he was detained at L.A. shopping center The Grove. He was released from jail after a few hours, telling TMZ that cops mistook him for the wrong guy. Two men in Offset’s group were ultimately booked on firearms charges.
The couple has a busy schedule lined up for Super Bowl weekend. Both Cardi and Migos are set to perform at the Vewtopia Music Festival in Miami Gardens. Migos will also take the stage at the Fanatics Super Bowl Party on Saturday.
June’s Diary, who rose to fame after being discovered by Kelly Rowland and Frank Gatson on BET’s “Chasing Destiny,” drop the first visual from their 2019 project Take Your Time.
In the playful video for “I Ain’t With It,” premiering exclusively on Rap-Up, the R&B quintet celebrates their freedom from gender roles and relationship expectations as they embrace agency and each other. Whether cruising in their Jeep or throwing a sleepover, the ladies prove they don’t need a relationship to bring them happiness.
“This video is for all the fans who continue to ride for us and a testament to what we can accomplish together as artists,” June’s Diary tells Rap-Up. “We created a world in which women aren’t tied down by relationship expectations or gender roles, in general. No catcalling, no emotional or physical abuse, and no controlling behavior. We can have our fun too so don’t get it twisted, we are on our own team!”
“I Ain’t With It,” which they co-wrote, marks the first new music from June’s Diary since their 2018 debut EP All of Us, and the first video they’ve released independently as a group.
Hot off the release of his Untrapped album, Yo Gotti commandeers all cameras to shoot for his new video featuring Megan Thee Stallion and Lil Uzi Vert.
In the Polaroid-filled clip, Gotti shifts through various wardrobes while posing under a bridge and a pastel-patterned backdrop. Uzi’s prancing in outer space and inside the darkroom, while Hot Girl Meg steals the photo shoot with her skin-tight leather ensemble. Say cheese!
