Last night, the NBA's annual All-Star Game came to Chicago, and the NBA recruited Chicago local Chance The Rapper to play the game's halftime show, a cool thing for the NBA to do. Chance recently cancelled his already-postponed Big Day tour, so this was Chance's first show since he played Rolling Loud Los Angeles last…
Over the last few days, The Good Place actress Jameela Jamil has come under scrunity for some inconsistencies in her stories about what she has gone through, including her history with bees.

Nicki Minaj has a new promotional single out today, "Yikes." It's already been ushered in with enough controversy that you might want to say yikes.
Last week, during his glorious all-star clusterfuck of a Grammy-night performance, young pop-chart leviathan Lil Nas X debuted a new version of "Rodeo," his 2019 Cardi B collaboration.

Lil Wayne wore the following things when he was the musical guest on The Tonight Show last night: A red beret with spikes sticking out of it, a giant fur coat with some kind of skatepunk-looking logo across the back, huge black sunglasses, and what appeared to be a white-and-plaid dress. He wore this dress…
When Lil Wayne was first starting in rap music, Cash Money Records paired him up with fellow baby rapper BG in the duo known as the BG'z. They released their first album in 1995. That means Lil Wayne has been releasing music for 25 years. He is 37 years old. Wayne was already a hitmaker…
Last night, Fox dedicated the coveted after-the-super-bowl spot to The Masked Singer, its absurdist singing-competition show. On that utterly fucking ridiculous program, an adaptation of a South Korean show, celebrities in surreal and outlandish costumes sing songs, and the show's judges attempt to guess who they are before unmasking them as the...
Gang Starr, the duo of Guru and DJ Premier, were one of the defining New York rap groups of the '90s, and they remain the greatest, purest exemplars of that era's boom-bap sound.
