Travis Scott raged a tad bit too hard yesterday
Travis Scott has made a name himself in a number of ways over the past couple years. One of those ways involves the viscous, emotion and drug-charged ballads he packs into his projects (see: Days Before Rodeo, or his Soundcloud), and the bangers he crafts for others, Jay Z, Kanye West, T.I. and French Montana among them.
Another way involves the manic, rave-like nature of his live show, which he appropriately (and fondly) refers to as “the Rodeo.” His energy is unmatched, and over the past year, he’s made it a point to assist the crowd’s (often physical) dismissal of a venue’s security detail, optioning for vaguely organized chaos as he runs through a medley of his high-powered records. This year’s Summer Jam was a rather high-profile episode of Scott’s antics, as the crowd overtook the VIP and Media section of the Festival stage, and Scott took it upon himself to publicly embarrass one of Hog 97′s photographers, halting his show to order the cameraman off the stage.
Yesterday, however, Scott’s will for rage got the best of him, and he was arrested following his Lollapalooza set, which was cut short after he implored the crowd to overrun security, and thousands of rowdy fans pushed forward towards the stage, resulting in several of them ending up on stage with Scott. According to an ABC report, Office of Emergency Management spokeswoman Melissa Stratton says Scott fled the scene after the chaotic end of his set, but he was later taken into custody.
It isn’t Detox, but my my, what have we here
For over a decade, Dr. Dre has been teasing the release of an album called Detox, an LP pushed back so many times and anticipated so hotly, the word “detox” has become synonymous with almost mythical occurrences or occasions procrastinated on for so long, the odds of them happening are slim to none. From Jay Z to Akon, high-profile rappers and pop artists over the years have been linked to Dr. Dre’s follow-up to to the multi-platinum 2001, but an actual album hasn’t materialized.
That is, until now.
On Dre’s The Pharmacy show on Apple Music’s Beats Radio 1 Saturday evening, the richest man in Hip Hop admitted that he’d scrapped Detox in favor of a fresher album, one inspired by the energy he’s been surrounded with during the filming and promoting of Straight Outta Compton, the F. Gary Gray-directed N.W.A. biopic film hitting theaters in a fortnight. Compton: The Soundtrack, releasing on Friday. Dre was clear, this isn’t the soundtrack to the movie, but rather, the soundtrack to the city, that he’s crafted with some very important colleagues in mind, including Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Kendrick Lamar, and more. The exact caliber of collaborators most were looking forward to seeing on Detox.
Last week, Ice Cube hinted at the release during an interview on Power 99, but was wrong about the release date, initially thought to be this past Friday. The album will be officially released this Friday, exclusively on Apple Music, and you can check out the artwork above and the tracklist below.
Finally, Dr. Dre’s 3rd–and final–album.

3) Genocide (feat. Kendrick Lamar, Marsha Ambrosius & Candice Pillay)
4) It’s All On Me (feat. Justus & BJ the Chicago Kid)
5) All In a Day’s Work (feat. Anderson Paak & Marsha Ambrosius)
6) Darkside/Gone (feat. King Mez, Marsha Ambrosius & Kendrick Lamar)
7) Loose Cannons (feat. Xzibit & COLD 187um)
8) Issues (feat. Ice Cube & Anderson Paak)
9) Deep Water (feat. Kendrick Lamar & Justus)
10) Jon Connor – One Shot One Kill (feat. Snoop Dogg)
11) The Game – Just Another Day (feat. Asia Bryant)
12) For the Love of Money (feat. Jill Scott & Jon Connor)
13) Satisfaction (feat. Snoop Dogg, Marsha Ambrosius & King Mez)
14) Animals (feat. Anderson Paak)

16) Talking To My Diary
Let the games…continue
The momentum Drake built off snubbing Meek Mill‘s attempt at dethroning him with a barrage of tweets and an ill-receieved diss track this week will carry seamlessly into this weekend, which marks Drake‘s 5th Annual OVO Fest, highlighted by a special Drake set tomorrow night at Molson Amphitheatre in Toronto, Canada.
However, the festivities have already begun, and during a pick-up game with LeBron James and other notable Drake affiliates, DJ Steph Floss captured Drake joshing about his near blemish-less run over the past 10 days, which include releasing the two Meek disses “Charged Up” and “Back to Back,” and two well-recieved loosies “Hotline Bling” and “Right Now,” to iTunes.
“I haven’t taken a loss all week.”
You can watch the clip here. In a “Charged Up” OVO t-shirt no less.
Awaiting their release of the Country Kingzproject with DJ Smallz, Austin, Texas’ most notorious group, Country Cousins, are back again with a new track entitled “Jugga Man”. Earning the cover of the Austin Chronicle during SXSW and opening for Wiz Khalifa and Taylor Gang, got the group respect of Austin’s rap community; recently earning them Best Album and Best Rap Group of the year at Austin’s Annual Hip-Hop Awards. Check out their newest joint below…
For people who don’t like the taste of cow’s milk, are grossed out by the thought of drinking milk from a cow, or are lactose intolerant, this is a list of tasty dairy alternatives… that aren’t soy!
Oat milk made from the grains of the oatmeal and is extremely good for your health. Not only are they tasty, oats are high in protein, fiber and they are even have healing properties. Yes. These lil’ buddies are super immune boosters! They’re also great for your hair, your skin and help regulate your blood sugar levels and cholesterol.
Easy Oat Milk Recipe:
Coconut milk might just be the most delicious alternative there is. Super rich in minerals (selenium, copper, iron, zinc, manganese) it is also extremely low in sugar. Coconut does not contain natural sugar fructose, so you do not have to fret about piling on those calories. However, it is not particularly high in calcium, so be sure to get the boost of calcium you need from other non dairy foods (greens, salmon, oranges etc.).
We’ve all heard of Almond milk and for good reason. Almond milk is high in omega-6 fats and should be added to your diet if you’re struggling to maintain your cholesterol levels. As with most nuts, they possess high antioxidant levels and well as vitamin E (works wonders for hair and skin). Oh, and it’s very low in calories. A 250ml glass of almond milk only contains 35 calories compared to skimmed cows milk, which is around 92 calories per glass.
Hemp milk is created from the seeds of the hemp plant. The seeds and NOT the leaf. There is absolutely zero chance of you catching a high off this controversial milk because it does not contain the chemical THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), which is found in Marijuana (you can’t get high without it).
Hemp milk is high in calcium. A single glass 46% of your recommended daily allowance. It also contains a good amount of amino acids (the 10 essential ones), omega-6, omega-3 thiamin, niacin, magnesium, and potassium.
Hemp sharpens the brain, strengthens the heart and boosts your immune system. You can sweeten the milk with some raw honey to give it a little oomph!
The delicious hazelnut has many alluring attributes. It is rich in fiber, protein, magnesium, B vitamins, vitamin E, iron, zinc and are packed full of antioxidants. If you’re a coffee drinker like me, the two are a match made in heaven. A much more flavorful brew than with using regular old cow or soy milk.
There is bit of a downside though, Hazelnuts do not have a particularly modest fat content, so go easy.
Easy Hazelnut milk recipe:
Please always seek medical advice before changing your diet.

Several people have been injured and three dead in a string of shootings across the five boroughs from Friday evening into early Saturday
A wave of gun violence began Friday night in NYC when two women were grazed by bullets near Foster and Albany avenues in East Flatbush, Brooklyn. A 23-year-old woman was nicked on the arm and a second woman, 53, was grazed on the leg when a gunman opened fire near Paerdegat Park in Canarsie, Brooklyn around 7:45 P.M.
Hours later, a 29-year-old man was then shot in the face around 11:30 p.m. Friday across the street from Amersfort Park on East 38th Street near Avenue I in Flatlands.
Three people were hit in a Bronx shooting inside the Space Time Playground at Bolton Avenue and Lafayette Street in Soundview around 1:30 A.M. 20-year-old Christian Garcia was fatally shot in the chest, a 25-year-old man was shot in the leg and a 17-year-old girl was shot in the butt, according to police.
Then at 1:40 A.M. Saturday, 24-year-old Donnell Smith was murdered at Canarsie’s Glenwood Houses along East 56th Street near Avenue H with multiple gunshot wounds to his torso. Police recovered 44 spent rounds of ammo at the scene.
Three more people were wounded at Parkside Court near Parkside Avenue in Flatbush, Brooklyn around 2 A.M. Saturday, where a 34-year-old man was shot in the leg, and the 47-year-old man was shot in the foot. Soon after, an 18-year-old woman walked into King County Hospital with a wound to the left thigh.
About 25 minutes later, a group of men opened fire at a Stanley Avenue house party in East New York after an argument. Six women were struck in the legs and arms and three men were hit—one in the neck during the incident. They were all taken to area hospitals and are expected to survive. According to police, four others were hauled away by EMS for injuries sustained by flying lead.
At the same time, a 46-year-old man was shot multiple times in Brooklyn in the Whitman Houses courtyard. According to officials, he was pronounced dead at Methodist Hospital.
In Coney Island around 3 A.M., a 36-year-old man took a bullet to the hand during a suspected robbery attempt near West 23rd Street and Neptune Avenue. The victim is listed in stable condition at Lutheran Medical Center.
Also in Brooklyn, a 15-year-old boy was shot in the stomach in a drive-by shooting in Prospect-Lefferts Gardens around 3:45 A.M. on Flatbush Avenue and Lincoln Road.
The police say the hot weather is one cause for the hot tempers and gun violence, as one source said,
You have summer weather, young men, alcohol and competition for pretty girls and the guns come out.”
A Memphis cop has been fatally shot during a traffic stop and the killer is still on the run
33-year-old Memphis, Tennessee police officer Sean Bolton, was shot and killed Saturday night. Police are conducting an active search for the suspect who is currently on the run.
Bolton was shot multiple times and a civilian used the officer’s radio to notify police at 9:18 PM of the shooting. The officer later died at the hospital, making this the third police fatality in Memphis over the past four years.
In a press conference on Sunday morning, Memphis Police Director Toney Armstrong stated,
It doesn’t get any easier. This is a very difficult time, not only for me as director, but for all the officers you see standing behind me and a difficult time for our city as well. So I ask that you give us the respect that we need … and the space that we need to grieve, and the time that we need to prepare to lay our brother to rest.
The suspect is still at large as the manhunt continues into Sunday and police are using all available resources to find the shooter.

Dope sells itself
With tons of artists both mainstream and indie releasing new material every day of the week, it is not too often that one stumbles upon something that is very refreshing and dope in the most organic way. That is exactly what happened when I clicked play on Gina Lee’s new video for “Friday.” The song, which features Harlem native Vinny Cha$e, showcases a smooth 90s Hip-Hop and R&B vibe that is purely infectious.
The clip, which is also directed by Vinny Cha$e, finds Gina Lee paying tribute to the classic Hip-Hop flick “House Party,” on the 25th anniversary of the film’s release. Do yourself a favor and check it out. You’ll be glad you did. Gina Lee’s forthcoming EP “New York Sessions” is slated for an August 7th release.
Fresh from releasing his “Perfect Timing” mixtape, South Central, LA native DUBB recruits R&B duo Jake&Papa for the R&B-tinged record “Get No Love.” The track samples Snoop Dogg‘s classic west coast hit “Midnight Love.”
