Metro Boomin Launches New Label Boominati Worldwide

If Young Metro doesn’t trust you, he might not sign you. Metro Boomin has the ability to do just that now, with his new label Boominati Worldwide.

The heralded producer announced the imprint through a partnership with Republic Records and Universal Music Group. The first release from the deal is “No Complaints,” his Drake and Offset-assisted debut single, which dropped last week.

The St. Louis-born and Atlanta-based beatsmith shared his excitement about the new venture. “Launching Boominati Worldwide is the next step in my career as a producer, an artist, and a businessman,” he said. “I created the label to represent a collective of highly-gifted individuals who have the shared gift of being able to influence the world through culture and art.”

Monte Lipman, Republic Records Co-Founder and CEO, also celebrated the news. “Metro Boomin is a franchise player who’s captured the imagination of the music community in a very short period of time,” he explained. “His amazing talent, competitive spirit, and natural charisma will serve as the cornerstone of success for Boominati Worldwide.”

Metro’s next move will be on the road, as part of Bryson Tiller’s forthcoming “Set It Off Tour,” which kicks off in August.

Video: Future – ‘Right Now’

Future is on a hot streak “Right Now.”

Just a couple of days after dropping his Chris Brown-assisted single “PIE,” HNDRXX unleashes a video for his DJ Esco collaboration “Right Now.”

Directed by The Shootrr, the black-and-white clip focuses on performance footage, likely from the “Nobody Safe Tour.” It’s a star-studded affair, featuring cameos from Drake, Big Sean, Meek Mill, and, of course, the Coolest DJ in the World.

Although it’s billed as a solo song, “Right Now” is a cut off Esco’s Project E.T. Esco Terrestrial, which dropped last year. It follows past visuals from the album like “Too Much Sauce” (with Future and Lil Uzi Vert), “Check On Me” (with Future and Fabolous), “Married to the Game” (with Future), and more.

On Friday, Future will wrap his “Nobody Safe Tour” in Las Vegas before embarking on “The Future Hndrxx Tour” next month. Watch Future and Esco’s latest visual “Right Now.”

Drake Signs Baka to OVO Sound

Drake’s longtime friend Baka is the newest member of the OVO family.

During a recent event, Drizzy announced the rapper’s signing to OVO Sound. “When [he] got out of jail, there’s a lot of different paths that he could have took,” said the 6 God. “He decided to focus on music.”

To reward that focus, Drake handed him a pen to sign a contract with his label. “It’s an honor and a pleasure,” he added. “I just want to give this pen to my brother. I love you, G. Trust me. You’ve been holding it down for a long time.”

French Montana, who was also on hand for the celebration, cheered him on. “Hey, Baka,” he yelled. “Congratulations, my brother.”

Congrats @bakanotnice 👏🖋@champagnepapi (via: @frenchmontana)

Drake fans know Baka Not Nice from various song references. On “Know Yourself,” Drizzy rapped: “I might declare it a holiday as soon as Baka get back on the road.” He also added Baka references on “No Long Talk” and OB O’Brien’s “Schemin’ Up.”

Baka has also made appearances on Drake’s tracks. For example, his voice can be heard at the end of “From Time.” He also offers an outro on “Free Smoke” and backing vocals on “Gyalchester.” Plus, he has released solo cuts like “Live Up to My Name” and “Whip.”

In addition to Baka, OVO recently announced the signing of singer Plaza to the label. The OVO squad will take the stage at the 8th Annual OVO Fest, which is set to go down Monday (Aug. 7) in Toronto.

Has he spoken with Rob Kardashian? Would he take Khloe Kardashian back? Would he ever do reality TV again?

Lamar Odom is Taller Than…

By Joanne Rosa

Lamar Odom is many things; he’s kind, generous, genuine, and tall!

Lamar is a towering 6’ 10” tall, making everything around him look miniature. If you think you’ve got tall people problems, think again. Lamar has you beat.

Check out the six things Lamar Odom is taller than.

Showerheads

Shower

OK, so there is no official or standard height for a showerhead, but this is the most typical tall person problem there is. You can adjust the height for ones in your home, but what about when traveling?! The inconvenience of it all.

Elevator Door

Elevator Doors Closed

The average height of an elevator door is 6’8” tall. Sometimes elevator doors can be 7’ or 8’ tall, but that’s not standard. So usually, we’re assuming Lamar has to tilt his head while he’s in the elevator. It’s claustrophobic enough as it is in there!

The Hummer H2

hummer_owner_assistance_vehicles_h2

The Hummer H2 was built between 2002-2009, and is taller than the rest (depending on the wheels you decide to put on it, of course.) This Hummer is 79 inches tall, which means Lamar has a clear view over the top.

King Size Bed

Luckily, Lamar probably doesn’t have to deal with this too often, but just for your perspective, there is no way Lamar could fit comfortably in a king size bed. A king bed is 80 inches long, so Lamar’s feet and ankles would hang off of the bed, and that’s if his head is at the very top. A California king bed is 84 inches long. Just think about how you sleep at night. If you were as tall as Lamar, you’d definitely be getting a custom made bed to fit you.

ATM Machines

3d ATM machine.

Obviously, Lamar is taller than an ATM machine. A lot of people are taller than an ATM machine. Here’s the gag: when you walk up to an ATM machine, the keypad is at your fingertips and you have a clear view of the screen. Lamar, we’re guessing has to take a knee for this one.

Wendy Williams

Wendy always talks about being a tall woman, and she is. Wendy stand at 5’10” without heels on. Lamar is a foot taller than Wendy. They sure look good together in their interview though!

Are you a tall person? What is your worst tall person problem?
