Video: Trina – ‘Free (Freestyle)’

The Baddest Bitch gets blessed up.

Trina hops on DJ Khaled’s Drake-assisted “For Free” banger off Major Key, delivering a remix and music video too.

Cruising on a yacht in Miami, the bikini-clad rapstress reworks some of the 6 God’s Too $hort-inspired lyrics. “I go on and on,” she raps. “And I know you bitches mad that I last this long.”

Trina also uses the track to promise new material. “I fell off last year,” she admits. “But I’m up right now / Got that new money, new deal, Queen of the South.”

Last month, Katrina honored Missy Elliott at VH1’s “Hip Hop Honors.” Before that, she released “Overnight” and appeared on Luke Nasty’s 2 Chainz-assisted “Might Be (Remix).”

Kid Cudi Completes Two Albums

Kid Cudi is about to blast off with new music.

The Man on the Moon announced that he’s done with two albums for 2016. Posting a photo of Usain Bolt, Cudder made this revelation: “Albums finished.”

In June, Cudder said he would be releasing two LPs this year. “One for the summer,” he tweeted, “and another for the fall.”

One of those is rumored to be titled Passion, Pain, & Dragon Slayin’, and he’s promised it will feature no “sad dark songs.”

In a series of tweets on Sunday, the WZRD added more teasers.

“Couldn’t feel more blessed right now,” he wrote. “I love yall so much man. Ima have some info this week about everything, release date, etc.”

Cudder already has A$AP Rocky’s support.

And he showed his fellow rhymer some love in return.

Cudi has been excited about these albums all year. Back in April, he promised that he would “dominate” 2016.

“People think that I’ve peaked,” he said at the time. “I haven’t even gotten a fucking nut off yet. I’ve been pre-cumming for the last eight years. I haven’t even ejaculated a full spew yet. So motherfuckers better get prepared.”

Video: Sevyn Streeter feat. Gucci Mane – ‘Prolly’

Sevyn Streeter teams up with Gucci Mane in the Mad Max-inspired music video for “Prolly.”

With bikers and chiseled guys around her, Sevyn delivers a sassy rebellious anthem. “Did I go too far tonight?” she asks. “I don’t know. Prolly.”

Accompanied by digital distortion, a Moschino-clad Guwop delivers a hologram-esque cameo. Plus, he chooses to be more definitive with his verse. “The way I figure,” he raps. “Ain’t no prolly. I’m that ni**a.”

Streeter opened up about the post-apocalyptic clip in an interview with The FADER.

“Though I’m definitely a fan of Mad Max, I honestly can’t take responsibility for this creative vision,” she said. “I gotta hand it to my director Mike Ho! He turned the feeling and vibes I had while writing ‘Prolly’ into reality! I knew the song was unapologetic, raw, and edgy and he created a treatment/environment that brought it to life!”

“Prolly” is the first in a new monthly video series leading up to Sevyn’s debut album Girl Interrupted. Due early next year, the project will feature guest spots from DeJ Loaf, Ty Dolla $ign, August Alsina, and Dave East over production from the likes The-Dream, Sean Garrett, and Bangladesh.

NFL Says Adele Was Not Offered Super Bowl Halftime Show

The NFL takes on Adele.

Just a day after the British superstar said she declined an offer to perform at next year’s Super Bowl halftime show, the National Football League is denying that it extended an invitation, according to Billboard.

“First of all, I’m not doing the Super Bowl,” she told fans at Los Angeles’ Staples Center on Saturday (Aug. 13). “I mean, come on, that show is not about music. And I don’t really — I can’t dance or anything like that. They were very kind, they did ask me, but I said no.”

On Sunday, the NFL and Pepsi — partners in the halftime show — offered a joint statement regarding Adele’s remarks.

“The NFL and Pepsi are big fans of Adele,” they said. “We have had conversations with several artists about the Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Show. However, we have not at this point extended a formal offer to Adele or anyone else. We are focused on putting together a fantastic show for Houston and we look forward to revealing that in good time.”

There is still plenty of time to come up with a performer. Super Bowl LI is scheduled to take place on Feb. 5, 2017 at Houston’s NRG Stadium.

Beyoncé, Coldplay, and Bruno Mars provided the halftime entertainment at this year’s Super Bowl.

YG dropped the visual for the third single off of his sophomore album “Still Brazy” at the turn of the summer, right before he looks to catch a second wind with the soon to be released “400 Summers” record with DJ Mustard. Having just completed his work alongside G-Eazy, Logic and Yo Gotti on the Endless Summer tour, plenty more opportunities to capitalize off of his notable exposure are sure to arise.

Cam Newton Says "We're Beyond Race, As a Nation"

From his touchdown celebrations to his fashion sense, to the way he reacts to losing games, Cam Newton has been under heavy criticism for his most of his professional career. The quarterback position is usually occupied by Caucasian players like Tom Brady and Peyton Manning; so some say the criticism of Newton is because he’s African-American. Newton himself has agreed with that assertion in the past but now he feels differently.

“It’s not racism,” Newton says when asked by GQ if football fans are racist towards him.  “Everybody’s entitled to their own opinion.”

So if it’s not racism then what is it?

“I’ll let you be the judge. I don’t look at it like that. I look at it like some people have certain beliefs, and I have my own belief, and we can agree to disagree on certain things. But this is what makes sports so amazing, that we can start a discussion around a table, in the newspaper, in the magazines, that will get people’s attention. And that’s what sports does.”

Newton answer differed back in January when he said, “I’m an African-American quarterback that may scare a lot of people because they haven’t seen nothing that they can compare me to.”

This time around, his answer is contrary to that opinion.  “I don’t want this to be about race because it’s not,” he says.  “It’s not. Like, we’re beyond that.  As a nation.”

“I mean, you bring it to people’s attention. But after that, that’s it.”
