Gucci Mane Brings Out 50 Cent & A$AP Rocky at Coachella

Gucci Mane brr-ought out some special surprises during his second weekend at Coachella on Saturday (Apr. 22).

During his time on the festival stage, the Trap God called on 50 Cent, who popped up for an impromptu performance of “What Up Gangsta,” the hardcore opener off Get Rich or Die Tryin’. “What up, Blood?” asked Fif. “What up, cuz? What up, gangsta?”

But the G-Unit General wasn’t the Wopster’s only guest. Chief Keef also showed up for a medley that included “I Don’t Like” and “Love Sosa,” both tracks coming from his breakout album, 2012’s Finally Rich.

A$AP Rocky and Playboi Carti also joined in on the fun with “Telephone Calls,” their collaboration off A$AP Mob’s Cozy Tapes Vol. 1: Friends- LP, which arrived last year.

During his set, Guwop was also joined onstage by his fiancée Keyshia Ka’oir, who danced and cheered him on. The couple is set to tie the knot later this year, on Oct. 15.

This is Zwizzop’s second weekend at Coachella. Last week’s set inspired him to release a new song named after the festival. Produced by Murda Beatz, TM88, and !llmind, the song finds him rhyming: “Cold weather, just performed at Coachella / It’s a cold summer, so I’ma paint the Lam’ yella / Brr!”

Video: Mila J – ‘New Crib’

Mila J has a “New Crib.”

The singer’s latest self-directed video opens with an artistic shot of Mila with her hair stretched in different directions. From this intimate intro, we watch her pack several moving boxes on her way to her “New Crib.”

“Love should never hurt,” she sings, while looking at an old photograph. “Take it back, you know I would / Through thick and thin, it was all good / You were my ni**a / Now I’m missing you.”

From there, Mila shows off her dancing skills with a choreographed routine. Joined by two dancers, she throws on a baggy denim jumpsuit and Timbs to break it down.

“New Crib” is a single off Dopamine, which dropped earlier this month. The 14-track project was based on Daniel Levitin’s This Is Your Brain on Music: The Science of a Human Obsession.

“It really broke down how our brain reacts to music, what’s released when we hear a song, and why we like certain music,” she said. “Dopamine is that chemical that’s released when things just feel good. It is that favorite song and that favorite band, and, I just feel very happy and very free.”

Check out Mila’s “New Crib” below.

New Music: Frank Ocean feat. Travis Scott – ‘Lens V2’

After dropping “Chanel” and “Biking,” Frank Ocean unleashes two version of “Lens,” a new song premiered through blonded Radio. The first is a solo edition, while the second is a Travis Scott-assisted remix.

Over a soothing beat, an Auto-Tuned Frank harmonizes about Mariah Carey, Rally’s, and freeways, before touching on his partner’s timeless qualities.

“Fake flowers, no water needed,” sings Ocean. “Real life drowned by the weekend / No wins, call it timeless / No ends ’cause you’re timeless.”

“Lens V2” follows with a twist from Travis Scott. Over an extended version of the original, La Flame comes through with vocal effects too. “Cameras on me, I need tints,” he sings. “Smiling but inside, I’m feeling bent / Come direct please, I can’t take no hints.”

Prior to dropping “Lens” and “Lens V2,” Frank unleashed “Chanel” and its A$AP Rocky-assisted remix via blonded Radio. He also teamed up with Jay Z and Tyler, the Creator on “Biking.”

It’s unclear whether these tracks are meant to make up a new project or whether they are unreleased cuts from last year’s Endless or blonde.

In any case, Frank is staying active. He also appears on Calvin Harris’ “Slide,” which features Migos, and is set to headline this year’s FYF Fest in Los Angeles.

Skip from Juvenile's UTP Group Destroys an Online Streamer's $5k Camera

Things got real for Ice Poseidon this past week. The Twitch.TV streamer brought his 300,000+ fans along with him into a New Orleans restaurant called Chicken and Watermelon, but wasn’t in the joint long before he was confronted by it’s owner. Little did he know that the business belongs to rapper UTP Skip, who isn’t the type to take a prank, much less a threat, very lightly.

Ice and crew were just settling in at the spot when the door flings open and UTP Skip himself appears, video of the confrontation shows. As Ice would soon learn, one of his followers had called Chicken and Watermelon and taken it a bit far by telling Skip that the pack had shown up to pull off a live stream shooting. The streamer immediately complied with his command of them to exit the establishment and from that point on not much is witnessed first hand by viewers, as Skip had swiftly trashed Ice’s camera before they were out the door.

The following day Ice would take to his Twitch stream to give a run down of what happened when the stream cut off. According to him a car full of Skip’s people pulled up prepared to bang, but were called off by Skip, who in the midst of getting to the bottom of why Ice was there had realized there wasn’t any validity to the shooting threat. His account matched what he had tweeted about the incident. “They had guns and a gang of people show up. When it turned off, dude said he had murder charges. So we booked it and luckily didn’t get shot,” he wrote. “Informed police. I’m trying to get out of New Orleans ASAP.”

As it turned out, UTP Skip was willing to go as far as replacing the camera and hooking the guys up with food and smoke, but Ice optioned to get his guys out of the predicament they had found themselves in, when he realized that his followers were actively swamping Chicken and Watermelon’s Instagram page. Within minutes not only had they ransacked Skip on social media, they also began to hit the restaurant’s Yelp page with 1-star reviews, thus potentially putting a dent in the rapper’s pocket.

Ebro Tells Troy Ave to "Shut Your A** Up" Amid Tupac Comparisons

Brooklyn rapper Troy Ave has been taking all sorts of heat since the release of his Album “NuPac” and it seems as though he has attracted another critic in Ebro. The Hot 97 DJ went off on Troy Ave, calling him a straight up liar for inferring that TDE wanted to sign him, and couldn’t help but bashing his lyrics. Rosenburg chimed in, claiming no comparison to Pac can be made. He appeared to try and give Ave the benefit of the doubt but ultimately criticized the Brooklyn rapper as well.

Regardless of your take on NuPac, it certainly has the streets talking. Thoughts? Let us know in the comments.
