    For a rapper whose debut single was called "Unorthodox," Joey Bada$$ isn't one to accept conventional wisdom. Defying widespread warnings, he proudly stared at the solar eclipse without protection. It didn't turn out to be a great idea. The rapper cancelled three shows starting Wednesday as he complained about his vision. The 22-year-old Brooklyn rapper on Monday shared on social media that he was gazing into the sky without special glasses as the United States witnessed its first coast-to-coast total eclipse in nearly a century. "This ain't the first solar eclipse and I'm pretty sure our ancestors ain't have no...

Also, honestly, that’s why you haven’t really seen me show up on certain things.”</p>

According to the report, Greene realized she had made a mistake just weeks after marrying Cuspert. She then fled back to the U.S., where she was arrested and agreed to cooperate with authorities.

    On Sunday, Snoop Dogg dropped the new music video for his Nightfall remix of BadBadNotGood’s track “Lavender” featuring Kaytranada. The video depicts a world full of mad clowns, and actor Michael Rapaport plays a clown father who is the target of police brutality. In his lyrics, Snoop addresses police brutality and racial profiling: “Trying to keep from dying in these muthaf***in’ streets / F*** the police / From a black man’s point of view.” The politically charged video also features a parody clown version of President Trump called “Ronald Klump.” The video presents a satirical look at the current political...

    Snoop Dogg stars in a new politically-charged music video that sees the rapper pull a gun on and “shoot” a parody clown version of President Donald Trump. Visuals for “Lavender,” a song that first appeared on BADBADNOTGOOD and Kaytranada’s IV, show a clown-faced President “Ronald Klump” holding a press conference where he announces a plan to “deport all dogs.” “The ban that this motherf*cker tried to put up; him winning the presidency,” Snoop says is what inspired the concept of that part of the video, Billboard reports. The dog deportation plan spurs Snoop Dogg and a gang of armed men...

    Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is reaching out to the African-American community these days, and in a new interview with Newsweek, at least part of that community is reaching back. Chicago rapper, actor, and White House invitee Common doesn’t seem to be persuaded by Trump’s newfound concern for black voters, if this interview is any indication: “America wouldn’t be taking a step back… we’d be taking 12 steps back [if Trump becomes president],” the Chicago-born musician and activist tells Newsweek. “It would be returning to some of the mentality of racism we’ve seen in the mid-Sixties, in the civil rights...
