Cardi B, Offset Debut New Collaboration: “Um Yea”

TheSource Feed - Sun, 12/10/2017 - 10:37am

Shortly after the arrival of the “Motorsport” video, Cardi B and Offset began to promote their collaboration song “Um Yea,” and fans are raving about the chemistry between these two — so much so that Cardi’s Twitter followers have her contemplating convincing Offset to do a collaboration album or mixtape.

“Um Yea” was released on Dec. 8 as apart of the Quality Control: Control the Streets Vol. 1 compilation project. In true Offset fashion, he exercises some of his best ad-libs, yet Cardi compliments his song presence with her unapologetic flow.

In addition to “Um Yea” the Control the Streets Vol. 1 project features the Migos, Lil Yatchy, Kodak Black, Nicki Minaj, Young Thug, Travis Scott, Tee Grizzley, and more. You can listen to Cardi & Offset’s “Um Yea” and stream the entire new Quality Control project here.

Ray Moore: Last Time America Was “Great” Was During “Slavery”

TheSource Feed - Sun, 12/10/2017 - 10:30am

Roy Moore, the Alabama Senate candidate under fire for alleged sexual misconduct with teenage girls when he was in his 30s, apparently believes America was a better place at a time when slavery was still legal.

At a campaign event earlier this year, an audience member asked Moore for his opinion on when the last time America was “great.” Moore responded, “I think it was great at the time when families were united—even though we had slavery—they cared for one another…Our families were strong, our country had a direction.” The individual who asked the question was among the few African-Americans in attendance at the rally, according to reports.

In stating this, Moore seemingly implied he’d be able to overlook the enslavement of other human beings as long as families are “united,” an interesting perspective from a man accused of repeatedly preying on young girls.

Moore’s remarks were featured in an article from the Times in September, but resurfaced Thursday in a viral tweet from Eric Columbus, a former Obama administration official. “Can’t make this up—Roy Moore said in September that the last time America was great was when we had slavery,” Columbus tweeted.


The Moore campaign defended his remarks in an email, “Judge Moore clearly made his point: America is great when families and faith are strong. Judge Moore has never condoned slavery and to suggest such is recklessly malicious.”

Moore’s comments at the rally bring to mind President Donald Trump’s slogan, “Make America Great Again,” which many have interpreted as a rallying cry to incite white nationalists. Trump has controversially endorsed Moore, despite widespread condemnation and the damning allegations the Senate candidate faces. Trump reportedly said “Go get ‘em, Roy!” during a recent phone call with the candidate.

A recent Big League-Gravis poll gave Moore’s Democratic opponent, Doug Jones (who isn’t accused of sexually assaulting teenage girls), a slight edge over the Republican. The poll of 1,276 likely voters showed Jones leading Moore 48 percent to 44 percent. The election is on December 12.

On December 4, Trump tweeted, “Putting Pelosi/Schumer Liberal Puppet Jones into office in Alabama would hurt our great Republican Agenda of low on taxes, tough on crime, strong on military and borders…& so much more. Look at your 401-k’s since Election. Highest Stock Market EVER! Jobs are roaring back!” Indeed, Trump apparently believes a man who was reportedly banned from an Alabama mall for harassing teenage girls would be “tough on crime” and is urging voters to support him.

National League MVP Mike Stanton Traded To The New York Yankees

TheSource Feed - Sun, 12/10/2017 - 10:29am

Marlins CEO Derek Jeter is once again being hailed as a Yankees hero after news broke that the Marlins will send reigning NL MVP Giancarlo Stanton to the Yankees in the biggest move of the off season.

Stanton led the NL in dingers and dominated the 2016 Home Run Derby. The “mound round of pound” will join a lineup with another 50-homer beast in Aaron Judge, who won Rookie of the Year honors for slamming a record 52 bombs and stealing the show at the 2017 MLB Home Run Derby in Stanton’s old backyard of Miami. The Yankees now floss the two best sluggers in the game.

Stanton will become the second MVP to be traded the following off-season, the first since the Yankees acquired Alex Rodriguez from the Texas Rangers after the 2003 season.

Unsurprisingly, while Jeter was being celebrated by Yankees fans Saturday, other analysts – along with Marlins fans – were blasting the five-time World Series champ.

A quick recap: Jeter bought the Marlins using mostly other people’s money, completely gutted them, pushed out a bunch of longtime employees, and traded their once-in-a-Generation player to the Yankees.

— Bill Simmons (@BillSimmons) December 9, 2017

Baseball teaming up with Jeter to give him a baseball team – and Jeter turning around and trading the MVP to his old team while screwing South Florida — feels like Wall Street fraud

— Dan Le Batard Show (@LeBatardShow) December 9, 2017

The greatest trick Derek Jeter ever pulled was convincing the Marlins he wasn't working for the Yankees

— Igor Shteyrenberg (@igor_s__) December 9, 2017


The Derek Jeter Era is officially underway in Miami, and the Yankees now boast not only the best two African-American power hitters in baseball, but a lineup that can rival the deep Yankees lineups of the Dynasty 90s.

 The New York Yankees are back in the spotlight and this is great business for Major League Baseball.

Ex-Arizona Cop Acquitted For Fatal Shooting of An Unarmed Man

TheSource Feed - Sat, 12/09/2017 - 1:47pm

Former Mesa Arizona police officer Philip Brailsford has been found not guilty of second-degree murder charges in the shooting of Daniel Shaver, an unarmed man.

In January 2016, Brailsford shot and killed Daniel Shaver in a La Quinta Inn & Suites hallway after responding to a call about a man pointing a gun outside of his hotel room window.

According to police reports, the “gun” found in Shaver’s room was used for his job which involves the killing of birds and is more likely to be an airsoft or pellet gun.

The shooting’s bodycam footage was released to the public after the verdict.

After being confronted by six Mesa police officers, Shaver is seen on his knees, begging and crying not to be shot by the aggressive officers shortly before he was killed.

Brailsford demanded Shaver to crawl towards the police multiple times and even gave him instructions on how to maneuver his arms and legs.

“Listen to my instructions and do not make a mistake,” is what the former Mesa officer tells the begging man.

It wasn’t too long until the moment turned fatal, as Brailsford pointed his AR-15 semi-automatic rifle and shot Shaver five times during one of his crawling attempts. According to police reports, Shaver’s movement “was also consistent with attempting to pull his shorts up as they were falling off.”

Brailsford argued Mr. Shaver’s reason for reaching his waistband was to retrieve a weapon. This statement was also written in the initial case report. It was later discovered no weapon was found on Shaver’s body.

The family of Mr. Shaver’s widow, Laney Sweet have gone on to file a wrongful-death lawsuit against the city of Mesa, along with the family of Daniel Shaver.

Migos Casting Look-Alikes for “Ice Tray” Diss Video

TheSource Feed - Sat, 12/09/2017 - 8:49am

Words by Comfort Nnana Kalu

Earlier this week, Quavo released a snippet of song “Ice Tray”.

The song immediately stirred the Twitter streets as it seemed to be a Joe Budden jab. Now word is getting out that there will be a video for “Ice Tray” and that Migos are looking to cast lookalikes of all three of the hosts from Everyday Struggle which includes Joe Budden, Nadeska Alexis and DJ Akademiks.

Everyday Struggle and Migos first butted in heads in an infamous video at the 2017 BET Awards in June.

The casting call was found by Nadeska on the website Backstage and the specifics of the roles have now been removed. According to the listing details Migos will be shooting the video in Atlanta on Dec. 10th.

Budden shared his thoughts on “Ice Tray” with the panel of Everyday Struggle and he doesn’t appear to be too troubled by the diss.

“I have no issue with any of you gentlemen over there. I think y’all move the culture forward. I want y’all to continue to do that however the fuck you can. You feed a lot of the people. Mumble, young man, mumble.”

George St-Pierre Vacates UFC Middleweight Championship a Month After Winning It

TheSource Feed - Sat, 12/09/2017 - 8:35am

Just 34 days after winning the UFC Middleweight title from Michael Bisping at UFC 217 in New York City, George St-Pierre (26-2 MMA, 20-2 UFC) has vacated the championship, citing uncertainty about his fighting future after being diagnosed with ulcerative colitis.

The UFC promptly scheduled a middleweight title fight Feb. 10 in Perth, Australia, between newly named champion Robert Whittaker of Australia and former middleweight champion Luke Rockhold.

Down under we go to get the gold. pic.twitter.com/7T1798h99W

— Luke Rockhold (@LukeRockhold) December 8, 2017

St-Pierre informed the organization, “My fight at UFC 217 was one of the greatest nights of my life but I now need to take some time to focus on my health. Out of respect for the athletes and the sport, I don’t want to hold up the division. I will be giving up my belt and once I’m healthy I look forward to working with the UFC to determine what’s next in my career.”

With this announcement, interim champion Whitaker has been elevated to undisputed champion, and subject to approval from the Combat Sports Commission in Western Australia, the five-round bout will be the first event in Western Australia and held at Perth Arena.

Despite GSP’s star power, the middleweight division doesn’t need him. Plus, the move opens up big-money options for him to return to welterweight in 2018 and possibly chase the 170-pound title he gave up upon retiring in 2013. With time to heal up, GSP could possibly put himself in line for a big payday with either welterweight champion Tyron Woodley and, of course, lightweight superstar Conor McGregor.

Lavar Ball and Joel Embiid Hug It Out After Lakers vs Sixers Game

TheSource Feed - Sat, 12/09/2017 - 8:29am

After the 76ers home loss to the Lakers, Joel Embiid shares a few minutes with the entire Ball family but saved the biggest show of love for the family patriarch, Lavar Ball.

Tough loss but met LaVar and he’s definitely fun and full of energy #TheProcess pic.twitter.com/UiYHP8XLNA

— Joel Embiid (@JoelEmbiid) December 8, 2017

Despite the loss, Embiid thrived with 33 points, seven rebounds, six assists and five blocks while shooting 11-of-17 from the field. However, this meeting extends well beyond the court considering the two have engaged in a war of words at times this year.

After the Sixers beat the Lakers earlier in the season, Embiid trolled the Big Baller by tagging “LaVar” as the location on a photo of him scoring against Lonzo.

“The Process” had previously gotten into a little war of words with Lonzo Ball’s pops during the off-season, when he tweeted at Ben Simmons to dunk on Lonzo after LaVar predicted that the Lakers would make the playoffs in his rookie season. Embiid also said “Fuck LaVar Ball” during an Instagram Live video, which resulted in a $10,000 fine from the NBA.

Good to see both parties have grown since their first social media encounter.

Travis Scott and Quavo’s Project Finally Has a Name & May Drop Before 2018

TheSource Feed - Fri, 12/08/2017 - 3:31pm

Travis Scott and Quavo have been teasing their joint project for a long time now. Some fans don’t even think it’s still happening, but Quavo revealed that the album is being mixed and won’t disappoint.

Me and this Travis record is going to the biggest collab album that you probably heard for the 2017 and 2018,” Quavo told Beats 1. “We’ve been sitting marinating, working. It’s done. It’s off for mixing. So you know when it’s done for mixing, it’s ready to go.

The project is titled Huncho Jack, Jack Huncho, which is certainly a catchy album title.

The Migos frontman has been a busy man lately. Quavo is gearing up for the release of Culture 2 in January, is featured on his label’s compilation album Control the Streets Vol. 1, and the “Motorsport” video recently dropped.

La Flame and Quavo have been teasing this album for a long time, so fans aren’t holding their breath. But when it does drop (if it drops), it’s undoubtedly going to go hard.

He said artists are “making catchy songs and their verse’s ain’t saying nothing. I want to make dope hooks and dope verses.” Smoogie has certainly accomplished this goal in this new track.

That 70’s Show’s Danny Masterson Latest in Sexual Misconduct Allegations

TheSource Feed - Fri, 12/08/2017 - 1:06pm

Words by Nick Slay

Fan favorite of the hit TV show That 70’s Show Danny Masterson, is the latest to be swept up in a sexual misconduct controversy. Masterson who played Hyde (the wise cracking conspiracy theorist with a heart of gold) was the latest to lose his acting gig due to his past seemingly coming back to haunt him. Like many other accused celebrities, victims said Masterson crossed the line over a decade ago.

Like his counterparts, Masterson maintains his innocence for the rape allegations levied against him. What makes his story unique is that Masterson claims that 15 years ago authorities looked into his case and cleared him of all wrong doing. He complains that he is being let go from his newest sitcom, The Ranch due to the bad publicity, however there isn’t any proof he committed the crime.

For those of you that aren’t savvy to, The Ranch it is a new sitcom on the streaming TV service Netflix and is produced by his former castmate and tech investor Ashton Cutcher. “As a result of ongoing discussions, Netflix and the producers have written Danny Masterson out of The Ranch,” a Netflix spokesman said in a statement to CNN Tuesday. “Yesterday was his last day on the show, and production will resume in early 2018 without him.”

Masterson being very vocal about his disappointment in how he was treated, feels that this a country where you’re supposed to be innocent until proven guilty. However, the current climate where industry giants like Harvey Weinsten and Matt Lauer have seen their careers and legacies crumble while under the microscope of law enforcement probe of his sexual misconduct, you are presumed guilty the moment you are accused.

If you’re wondering, his current trial in the court of public opinion dates back to March when journalist and former Village Voice editor Tony Ortega wrote on his site, “The Underground Bunker,” that Masterson was being investigated by the Los Angeles Police Department. The accusations were brought to light when interviewed by Leah Remeni as part of her documentary on Scientology. Chrissie Carnell Bixler, while being interviewed by The Daily Beast (one of Masterson’s accussors), said she decided to go public after the Huffington Post reported Netflix would continue to work with Masterson pending the investigation.

LeBron James Bought a Second L.A. Mansion for $23 Million

TheSource Feed - Fri, 12/08/2017 - 12:57pm

LeBron James real-estate game just got a major upgrade.

The general belief around the league is that LeBron will leave Cleveland after this season to play for the Los Angeles Lakers. Adding more fuel to the fire, LeBron reportedly just bought another home in Los Angeles, a $23 million mansion, according to TMZ.

LeBron James Drops $23 Million for Second L.A. Mansion https://t.co/U8oj8SlKWs

— TMZ Sports (@TMZ_Sports) December 7, 2017

The 15,846 square foot pad, located in the affluent Brentwood neighborhood, was built in 2017 and features a number of amenities that you’d expect for a king, including eight bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, a theater room, wine cellar, rooftop terrace with elevator access, a cigar room with air purifying technology and an onyx bar, just to name a few.

LeBron already bought a $21 million home in Los Angeles a couple of years ago so this certainly doesn’t guarantee he’s preparing for a move to the West Coast, but it also doesn’t do anything to quiet the rumors that he’ll be playing home games at Staples Center next season.

James, now in his 15th season of NBA service, does have several ties to Los Angeles. His business partner, Maverick Carter, is based in the city. And James’ production company, Springhill Entertainment, is based at Warner Bros. Studios.

Boston Celtics’ Gordon Hayward Making Great Progress Since Opening Night Injury

Boston Celtics general manager Danny Ainge said Thursday small forward Gordon Hayward is around two weeks away from getting out of his walking boot as he recovers from a severe leg injury.

— SportsCenter (@SportsCenter) December 7, 2017

Ainge noted that the team won’t rush to get Hayward back on the court, but the way the 27-year old forward is progressing you can’t rule out a potential return late in the season. Especially if the Celtics make a deep playoff run as expected.

He hasn’t expressed (wanting to return this season), but just knowing professional athletes, I know that down inside he wants to be back faster than anybody has ever been back from this kind of injury. He’s got a competitive streak to him and he’s asking lots of questions. … He’s diligent in his rehab. I know what’s going on in his mind, but I don’t think he’ll say anything about how fast he wants to get back.”

While Hayward handles his rehab, the Celtics have continued to take care of business on the court. Boston is currently sitting atop the Eastern Conference with an NBA-best 22-4 record.

Brandon Ingram Nails Game Winner & Saves Los Angeles Lakers

TheSource Feed - Fri, 12/08/2017 - 12:36pm

Brandon Ingram silenced the sold-out Philadelphia crowd with 0.8 seconds left on the clock, to beat the 76ers 107-104 Thursday night. Ingram finished with 21 points. 3 of those 21 came after a drive and kick out, by Lonzo Ball, to a wide-open Ingram, for the go- ahead bucket to ice the game. “He already saw it before it happened,” exclaimed LaVar Ball, on his son’s game winning assists.

The Lakers came into Philadelphia riding a 5-game losing streak and losing 7 of their last 10. On the night he nailed the biggest shot of his young NBA career, Brandon Ingram did it with a calm confidence. He added 7 rebounds and 6 assists to go along with his scoring total. The Lakers bench helped to propel them as well. Both Jordan Clarkson and Julius Randle, finished with 16 points apiece. Lonzo fell 2 rebounds and 2 assists shy of his 3rd career triple-double. He came into the game tied with Ben Simmons with 2 triple-doubles. Although he was booed by 76ers’ fans every time he touched the ball, he enjoyed playing in the tough atmosphere. “They were going after us,” Lonzo stated. “It’s always fun to play like that though.”

B.I. for the win! #LakeShow pic.twitter.com/lm1i6mOwiJ

— Los Angeles Lakers (@Lakers) December 8, 2017

The young stars on both teams shined Thursday night. Simmons netted his 3rd career triple double and his running mate, Joel Embiid, finished with 33 points. During the last meeting between these two teams, 76ers’ center, Embiid dominated with career high 46 points. The Lakers seemed to minimize the damage done by the 76ers front man this time around.

The game winner sent LaVar into a hysterical celebration. He embraced his son after game to tell him how proud he was.

LaVar made headlines this week when he removed his 2nd oldest son, LiAngelo, from UCLA, after his indefinite suspension by the school. The suspension was the result of his involvement in the shoplifting incident in China, with two of his UCLA teammates.

Both teams are back in action on Saturday night. The Lakers continue their east coast road trip to face the Hornets in Charlotte. The 76ers head to Cleveland to take on a red-hot Cavaliers team.

Eve: My Husband Told Me That His Father Doesn’t Like Black People

TheSource Feed - Fri, 12/08/2017 - 9:06am

Ruff Ryder’s First Lady Eve was initially afraid to meet her husband Maximillion Cooper’s parents because he jokingly told her his father didn’t like African-Americans.

The Who’s That Girl hitmaker’s in-laws are Caucasian and when Cooper told her they weren’t fond of black people, she was shocked he didn’t tell them she is African-American.

“When my husband and I first started dating, I was going to meet his parents and he thought it would be funny to tell me that his dad didn’t like black people,” she said on her U.S. chat show The Talk on Tuesday (December 5, 2017). “He was kidding. You have to know my husband, he thinks stuff like this is funny and it was funny, because his parents are amazing and beautiful.”

“But he did tell me that and I was terrified,” she continued. “I was like, ‘How could you not prepare them, what did you say, why couldn’t you tell them?,’ and then I got there and they were amazing, but I was so stressed out.”

Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Star Trek’ Remake Will Be R-Rated

TheSource Feed - Fri, 12/08/2017 - 8:28am

Earlier this month, reports surfaced about Quentin Tarantino’s plans for Star Trek. A new update from Deadline has just confirmed Paramount is moving forward with the director’s pitch, and it will be a R-rated endeavor.

According to new reports, Tarantino pitched as Star Trek film to JJ Abrams and Paramount. The director then met with a writers room containing Mark L. Smith, Lindsey Beer, and Drew Pearce. Deadline says Smith appears to the frontrunner to nab the film’s scripting gig, and that is not all. If the reports are correct, then Tarantino is requiring his Star Trek project be R-rated, and Paramount agreed to the condition.

When it comes to scripting, Smith’s style would fit with Tarantino’s vision. The reported frontrunner is best known for co-writing The Revenant starring Leonardo DiCaprio. The writer has also worked on various horror projects like The Vacancy. The writers room’s other contenders have plenty of work backing up their resumes. Pearce’s script credits include projects like Iron Man 3 while Beer’s is overseeing Godzilla vs. Kong.

Reports say that one of the three writers will be locked in quickly. The movie will be planned out while Tarantino films his next feature about the Manson murders of 1969.

Listen: Drake Jumps on Mike WILL Made-It and Trouble’s Song, “Bring It Back”

TheSource Feed - Fri, 12/08/2017 - 8:20am

Words by Leslie Monet

Drake couldn’t help but to bless the Mike WiLL Made-It’s track after hearing straight heat on Trouble’s “Bring It Back” single, released last night (December 7th). According to super producer Mike WiLL, “I let Drake hear it, and Drake was like, ‘Yo, this song is crazy,’ and he ended up hopping on that joint, smoking that joint.”

Rumors of the collaboration between the trio spread last year, when a snippet of the song was played during Art Basel in Miami. Fans have been sitting on the edge of their seats ever since.

Trouble, one of Atlanta’s best-kept-secret MC’s, has been slowly gaining momentum outside of the region with features including Lil Yachty, Young Dolph and YFN Lucci to name a few.

“Bring It Back” opens up with a hypnotizing 808 and snare drum combination, followed by Trouble’s opening verse and catchy chorus making listeners automatically familiar and in tune with the track. We don’t have to wait too long for Drake’s bars, which come in right around the 2:32 mark. “Yeah, I don’t play no games boy, I’m at your head/All about the family, niggas took the pledge/Now you gotta own up to that shit you said/You can’t push us to the edge, Trouble from the edge/Hit the gas and we outta there/Do it for the six because we started there.”

A video is also in the works for the banger as Mike WiLL revealed “We’re just trying to make sure the project is all the way ill and complete and done.” It’s still unknown if the track will make it to Trouble’s upcoming project after slight disappointment when Ransom 2 was released without the track.

What we do know is that the two have an entirely separate vault of hits; “Me and Trouble did a whole project in like three or four days”, claimed the Georgia producer. Listen to the long-awaited collabo here.
