Rapper Dave East Releases Diamond Supply Co. Collaboration Ahead of First Single From ‘Survival,’ Out Friday

“I got it tatted on me, ‘born broke, die rich,’” said rising rapper Dave East, lifting his white T-shirt and revealing the cursive letters marked below his navel.
The 31-year-old New York City native, born David Brewster Jr., came from humble beginnings, becoming a Crip as a teen, and later, facing a stint in prison for selling drugs. Following the 2010 release of his first mixtape, “Change of Plans,” and the broader attention that followed with 2014’s “Black Rose,” he’s been forging a different path and is now signed to Def Jam Recordings. With 2.4 million Instagram followers and millions of YouTube hits on each music video (“Perfect,” featuring Chris Brown, has 34 million views alone), East is one to watch.
“Them four words mean everything to me,” he continued. It’s also the title of a 2016 collaborative EP with Philadelphia rapper Kur. “You’re born a certain way, but you don’t gotta die like that.”
All eyes were on the rising rapper as he held court on Fairfax Avenue, smoking a joint in front of Diamond Supply Co., where he celebrated his collaboration with the streetwear and skateboard label on Thursday evening.

Rapper Pusha T Gets Married With Kim Kardashian, Kanye West and Pharrell Williams in Attendance

Oh happy day in hip-hop!

Rapper Pusha T, who made headlines this year for his epic war of words with Drake, has tied the knot with longtime love Virginia Williams.

The wedding took place on Saturday at the historic Cavalier Hotel in Virginia Beach. The happy pair had some very famous friends on hand to help them celebrate. Pharrell Williams, a close friend of the groom, served as best man, while Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West enjoyed the ceremony with other guests.

Just ahead of the ceremony, Kardashian posted video of her glam ensemble on Instagram. Posing in front of a mirror, she showed off her gold Balmain mini dress, which she paired with a sparkling Judith Leiber clutch that’s shaped like a retro cell phone. After showing off her look, the reality star announced, “Mr. West is in the building!” turning the camera on her husband, who was adjusting his black suit.

The joyous occasion comes in the midst of a busy year for Pusha T (né Terrence Thornton), who’s the current president of Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music record label. Pusha T dropped his West-produced new album Daytona on May 23, and its cover art immediately caused controversy.

According to the rapper, West spent $ 85,000 to purchase the rights for an image of Whitney Houston’s drug-strewn bathroom to use as the album’s cover art. The use of the photo garnered mixed reactions from fans and Houston’s friends and family.

Just after his album’s release, the rapper and Drake struck up beef over lyrics in Pusha T’s new song “Infrared.” In response, Drake issued a diss track called “Duppy Freestyle,” where he mentions Pusha T’s then-fiancée by name. This led Pusha T to release his own blistering diss track, in which he outed Drake for having a secret child.

Things seem to have smoothed over, and both Drake and Pusha T have happily moved on.

Amber Rose has a new man in her life.

The model took to Instagram early Monday morning to share a candid, emotional note about rapper 21 Savage, whom she’s been spotted spending time with in recent weeks.

“It’s pretty amazing waking up every morning feeling love like this,” she captioned a photo of the two in bed. “I’ve cried endlessly and been hurt a lot in my life, I’ve been abused, talked to like I wasn’t s—, been gaslighted and Slut shamed by men that I once loved and cared about. So I’m so thankful that God brought this amazing person in my life who genuinely has my back and is ready to ‘pull up’ to defend my honor by any means.”

“Maybe he’s just as broken as me and that’s why we’re perfect for each other,” she added. “But either way he’s not going anywhere and neither am I.”

Rose also shared a video of the two kissing and cuddling in the mirror.

“When he loves spoiling you but you got ur own money so you spoil him instead,” she wrote. “Ain’t nothin like that #thuglove.”

“She’s beautiful, right?” he said. “We’ve just been kicking it, man. She’s a real cool woman. She treats me like a king, so it is what it is. And no disrespect will be tolerated, at all. Keep your mouth closed, no hoes, no bitches, no nothing, ’cause I’m pulling up.”

When asked about the age difference between the two — Rose is 33 and Savage is 24 — the rapper said he was only younger “in age, not mentally.”

But that being said, he’s still learning a few things from her.

“She makes me do s— that I don’t normally do,” he explained. “Like take vitamins and drink water.”

Chance The Rapper Took Us To Church Last Night. Here’s Why That Matters.

Chance the Rapper thanked God like a trillion times in his acceptance speech for Best New Artist at Sunday night’s Grammys. Then he took the Grammys to church with a passionate, gospel-filled performance that featured a poppin’ choir, Kirk Franklin, and Tamela Mann. It was a rousing, meaningful on-stage moment for the 23-year-old Chicago rapper, who won his first three Grammy awards that evening with no record sales. 

Performing a medley of “How Great,” “All We Got” and “No Problem” from his groundbreaking album “Coloring Book,” Chance was playing no games. The show was slowly creeping into its third hour, but the rapper was was not only brimming with energy, he was demanding it of the audience, too. 

“Hey y’all better stand up right now, stop playing,” he bellowed halfway through the performance. “I’m talking about God!”

The story of black people and God, or at least the Christian God, is obviously fraught. It was the Bible and Christianity that were ostensibly used to as tools towards the enslavement and colonization of Africans. But it was the same Bible, the same God, that stood at the center of so many spiritual and political movements that helped black people become free. It’s complicated.

What’s not complicated, though, is the intrinsic connection between the black Church and black music. So many black musical greats, from Stevie Wonder to Whitney Houston, found their voice and honed their talent singing gospel music on Sundays. Those threads have have often found their way into secular music, both subtly and blatantly. Chance’s Sunday night performance was a powerful reminder and homage to the role that gospel has always played in the black music that shapes popular culture. 

Bringing the likes of Kirk Franklin and the legendary Tamela Mann onstage with him on what was likely the biggest night of his career thus far sent a huge message. It was a tipping of the hat, a moment of celebration and recognition of a part of black culture that rarely gets its props in the mainstream.

SonReal And What It’s Like Being A White Rapper In A Post-Macklemore Hip-Hop Scene

It isn’t very often that weird humor and hip-hop mix. The Beasties Boys and The Fat Boys were two of the first to embrace comedy hip-hop in the 1980s, a conceit that was picked up by Eminem in the ’90s, and current acts like Childish Gambino, Macklemore, Odd Future and Lil Dicky within the last decade.

But one of the most recent artists to throw his silly hat into the ring is Canada’s SonReal. Releasing his “Everywhere We Go” music video just over a year ago, the Juno-nominated rapper seems to pay homage to the uncomfortable awkwardness and absurd nerdy stylings of “Napoleon Dynamite.” Accumulating nearly 1.5 million views on YouTube — “One million views in Canada is more like 100 million in the States” — comedy feels like a natural fit for SonReal. But with mixtapes hailing back to 2006, this goofy tone is actually a first.

“I think we created a whole new side to my personality with that video,” SonReal told The Huffington Post. “A lot of people didn’t even really think I was funny before that. A lot of my stuff was a little more serious, maybe some people would categorize it as emo.”

The video for “Believe,” off his most recent free album, “One Long Day,” was purposefully released after “Everywhere We Go” to remind both new and old fans of his more serious side. (SonReal was aware that an art piece wouldn’t go viral.) While the majority of the album floats in this space of self-examination and outreach, SonReal’s latest video for his new track, “Preach,” brings on another wacky, stoic production, shot in 57 different locations throughout the United States.

Born as Aaron Hoffman and raised in Vernon, British Columbia, a small town with a population of 60,000, SonReal grew up expecting to follow in the footsteps of the town’s working populace.

“A lot of the people where I’m from go up north and work on rigs,” he said. “It’s these small town dreams, which is to have a family and try to be rich. That’s what successful is there. There are no rappers around my way, so I really had to break the mold. When I first started, people around me didn’t take me seriously — and so they shouldn’t have, I was horrible at it. But it was definitely harder for me, I think, than somebody growing up in a big city because there was no one within 500 miles of me that had done what I was trying to do.”

Introduced to hip-hop through skateboarding, he fell in love with albums like Nas’ “Illmatic,” Method Man’s “Judgement Day” and Mobb Deep’s “The Infamous.” On his first mixtape, “Trapped In The Streets,” SonReal emulated these artists, rapping about selling drugs and killing people. While he understands he was just trying to find his place in hip-hop, SonReal is thankful that little beyond the music was documented. “I’m so happy I didn’t have a YouTube account at the time because I would have so many videos that are so bad,” he said.

“It takes time to find out what you want to say and who you want to be,” SonReal continued. “At the end of the day is just comes back to ‘do you.’ I have always said I want to be around for a long time, so we’ve taken our time with things and made sure they’re perfect. One thing about me is that I’ve never been really amazing right off the jump. I’m not someone who just comes out with a smash album right at the start. I’m consistently working to get better at my music. ‘One Long Day’ is my best work today, but my new stuff is already turning out to be way more energetic. I’m excited about it.”

As SonReal continues to rise — and headlines his first tours throughout the United States — the comparisons to Macklemore feel unfortunately inevitable. In addition to both men being white rappers, they share a goofy-sincere sensibility. But for those willing to really listen, SonReal’s work exudes its own unique talent. In fact, it’s what many of his fans know already: SonReal has his own flow, his own style, his own message. And he’s pretty damn good at it.
