Six months after releasing his debut album Big Baby D.R.A.M., D.R.A.M. rounds up A$AP Rocky and Juicy J for his new single “Gilligan.” The bouncy banger, which was previewed during Coachella weekend, finds the “Broccoli” rapper pulling inspiration from the ’60s sitcom “Gilligan’s Island.”

Meanwhile, Juicy J sets it off with some strip club-ready rhymes, while Rocky pays homage to Killa Cam and “makes it rain like the weatherman.”

After making his Coachella debut last week, D.R.A.M. will return to the desert for Weekend 2 on Saturday (Apr. 22).

Tiny Addresses Relationship with T.I. on ‘Wendy’

Last night, T.I. and Tiny kicked off the final season of their VH1 reality series, “The Family Hustle.” This morning, Tiny spoke about the season, which is set to chronicle their potential divorce, on “Wendy.”

Asked about whether the relationship turmoil is merely a ploy for ratings, Tiny denied those rumors. “That’s what you think?” she asked. “No.”

According to the Xscape songstress, the relationship has been marred by trouble for some time, trouble that she believes was exasperated by their presence on television. “I think reality TV did put a little strain in it because it keeps people in your business,” she said. “I felt like it was a family show so it would be cool but it just seems like everything turns out to be in the media.

“We just cannot keep it together,” she added. “I guess it’s just the entertainment life and everything. It’s just a lot. It is a fast life. They call him a sex symbol, I guess.”

Just as rumors of a reconciliation have popped up, rumors of T.I.’s affair with model Bernice Burgos have also made headlines. Calling her “someone that comes and is gone,” Tiny said Burgos was not to blame for the divorce filing in December.

“He’s not even with her,” she said. “She had nothing to do with whatever was going on with us before anyway. We were already going through whatever we were going through. She just came in the picture after I filed for divorce.”

Rumors of Tiny’s alleged affair with Floyd Mayweather have also come up again in recent months, particularly when a video surfaced of the two dancing together.

“I wasn’t up on him,” she explained. “Actually, I was already dancing. We’re friends. It’s never been anything extra with me and Floyd. Never. I’ve been knowing Floyd for a long time. He’s a nice looking man but it’s never been anything other than a friendship.”

While she denies infidelity on her end, Tiny said their relationship did have some issues. “We were married and we did what we wanted to do,” she said. At one point, she added: “We don’t have anything now.”

Aside from the show and her possible divorce, Tiny is currently focused on a reunion tour with Xscape, in which they’ll perform past hits. She also recently started a record label, Pretty Hustle. Her first artist is her daughter, Zonnique.

BJ the Chicago Kid and Tiara Thomas Celebrate 4/20 on ‘I Be High’

Inhale, exhale. BJ the Chicago Kid and Tiara Thomas roll up for 4/20 with “I Be High,” a melodic mid-tempo weed anthem that blends soothing harmonies with plenty of smoke.

Tiara kicks off the track with some raunchy eyebrow-raising rhymes. “I know it’s hard for ya,” she raps. “Put a middle finger up when they start to judge / Put a finger in the butt when we start to fuck.”

From there, Tiara and BJ get smooth while talking about their medicinal habits. “I don’t give a fuck,” they sing together. “You know I be high.”

Then The Chicago Kid keeps the marijuana boasts rolling with his verse. “You know I roll up the best,” he sings. “Shoutout to my connect.” Later, he adds: “Inhale, ni**a / Exhale, ni**a.”

“I Be High” follows BJ’s Usher Confessions tribute and December’s The Lost Files: Cuffing Season. After hitting up Coachella over the weekend, he is now wrapping up the follow-up to last year’s In My Mind.

Meanwhile, Tiara just dropped her acoustic EP Don’t Mention My Name last month.

New Music: Gucci Mane – ‘Coachella’

Fresh off his show-stopping set at Coachella, Gucci Mane shows that he’s ready for Weekend 2 of the festival with his latest banger.

Aptly titled “Coachella,” Guwop’s newest cut was produced by the all-star team of Murda Beatz, TM88, and !llmind. It may be an ode to the Cali fest, but the Wopster still keeps his cool on the track.

“Cold weather, just performed at Coachella,” he raps. “It’s a cold summer, so I’ma paint the Lam’ yella / Brr!”

Beyond rhyming about being an eskimo who lives in the snow, La Flare also uses the song to name-check a fellow Coachella performer, La Flame. “I pulled out the parking lot,” he raps. “This bitch won’t pick up the phone, she must think I’m Travis Scott / Gucci so dope, like they pulled him out the pot.”

Aside from getting ready for Coachella’s second weekend, the “Make Love” MC is continuing his “TrapGod Tour.” Featuring Playboi Carti and Dreezy, the trek is slated to run through May 6 in Austin.

The 1017 Eskimo Records boss is currently prepping for his new album DropTopWop, his book The Autobiography of Gucci Mane, and an indie film with Rick Ross.

Shower in a bathroom

We are pretty sure that cleaning the bathroom is the most daunting task when it comes to cleaning. The bathroom needs the most disinfecting out of any room in the house, so it takes the longest.

Joyful Homemaking came up with a painless solution to the most difficult part of the bathroom cleaning process.
