Maxo Kream is having his moment.
From 2018's Punken to 2019 self-titled Brandon Banks, the Houston rapper keeps improving and keeps evolving and with yesterday's release of his new album, WEIGHT OF THE WORLD, Kream is cementing himself among the best spitters in the game today.
And after releasing visuals with Tyler, the Creator for “BIG PERSONA” six weeks ago, and a throwback video for “GREENER KNOTS” ahead of his album release, Kream is back today with a new video for WEIGHT OF THE WORLD's opening track, “CRIPSTIAN.”
Starting off with a couple gunshots and a young man's heartbeat ECG going flat in the back of an ambulance, the “CRIPSTIAN” video flashes tobthe same man, dressed in all-white, riding in an all-white vintage car over a cobblestone driveway to the front doors of an all-white mansion. It's here that we meet Maxo, also dressed in, you guessed it, all-white, spitting bar after bar in front of the mansion.
In what appears to be Crip heaven, Maxo ti..

Maxo Kream is having his moment.
Will Smith provided an update for fans regarding his new fitness regimen on Instagram, Sunday, claiming that he's in the best shape of his life.
“And to think Sundays used to be for muffins #bestshapeofmylife,” Smith joked, sharing a highlight reel of the legendary actor hitting the gym. The clips start with Smith jumping out of bed and cut to his workout montage.
Smith is currently working on a six-part documentary series, “Best Shape of My Life,” that he plans on uploading to YouTube, which will center around losing weight during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Kevin Winter / Getty Images“This is the body that carried me through an entire pandemic and countless days grazing thru the pantry,” he wrote on Instagram, in May, announcing the partnership with YouTube. “I love this body, but I wanna FEEL better. No more midnight muffins…this is it! Imma get in the BEST SHAPE OF MY LIFE!!!!! Teaming up with @YouTube to get my health & wellness back on track. Hope it works.”

Lil Baby may no longer be with his longtime love interest Jayda Cheaves, but they continue to show the world that they will ride for one another even though they might not be on the greatest terms.
The former couple split up earlier this year after a cheating scandal shook things up online, with Lil Baby being accused of cheating on Jayda with multiple women, including an adult film star. They remain loyal to one another though, always showing love on social media. After all, they spent years of their lives as a couple and have a kid together. But since they transitioned out of a romantic relationship, it seems as though Jayda can no longer keep up with Baby's preferences in the bedroom.
Prince Williams/Getty ImagesSharing a new TikTok video this week, Jayda reacted to one of the lyrics in Lil Baby's verse on “Girls Want Girls” from Drake's album Certified Lover Boy. She applied lip gloss while listening to the song, reacting to one of her ex's bars and thinking ..
In an era when artists are expected to drop new music at least once a year, if not more often, Isaiah Rashad chooses to travel a separate path. Waiting five years to release The House Is Burning, the TDE rapper's follow-up to 2016's The Sun's Tirade, Rashad dealt with impatience and ridicule but ultimately stayed the course, dropping a slow-burning, well-put-together album as a reward for those who were willing to wait.
The album's title track, “THIB” is a laid-back and introspective record, and at just over two-and-a-half minutes, is more than enough time for Rashad to flex his uncanny writing ability, but not long enough to get lost inside the lyrics. Not even in an earthquake, which, as seen in the brand-new visuals for “THIB”, is exactly where Rashad finds himself spitting about night riding and his distaste for Hennessy.
Shaken by the aforementioned earthquake, Rashad floats through a suburban neighborhood, stopping by a house party before falling onto the fr..
Fans of Summer Walker may tell you that an album from the 25-year-old is long overdue, but that won’t be the case for long. The “Playing Games” singer recently released the first single from her upcoming album, “Ex For A Reason,” and this afternoon the mother of one shared the accompanying video.
Directed by Lacey Duke, the visual sees Walker and JT of City Girls (who‘s featured on the song) along with a gang of girlfriends as they make their way to a party, where the Over It artist’s famed “hard drive” makes a cameo.
If you’re not familiar, the Atlanta star and her team had a hard drive set up in a seemingly impenetrable box in the middle of New York. Fans are welcome to try to bust into the set-up to get their hands on Walker’s new album early – footage of people’s best efforts have been making their way around Twitter this week, but no one has cracked the case yet.
Still Over It is set to release on November 5th, with Walker already announcing three of the track’s titles – “Ex For A..
If you've been partying in Miami, Florida over the last couple of weeks, or if you're familiar with what's happening out there, you likely have already heard about the Drake lookalike that's been tearing things up and attracting all kinds of attention. The man bears a very faint resemblance to Drake, but people are going crazy about him appearing at popular clubs, including Story and Liv. He started to go viral when media personality DJ Akademiks posted about him, and now it feels like he'll never leave Miami's clubs.
On Monday night, new pictures of Fake Drake surfaced online. One of them shows him with a photographer inside an event, throwing up a “6” hand sign as Drake would. Curiously though, he wasn't wearing an OVO chain. Instead, the doppelgänger was rocking Roddy Ricch's emblem.
Another shot shows him with a heart shaved into his hair as he stands by the microphone in the studio. At this point, it feels like Fake Drake might be here to s..
Hitman Holla issued a warning for those responsible for shooting his girlfriend, Cinnamon, during a home invasion, on Instagram this week. Hitman demanded the shooters' location, saying he's “willing to die ova this situation.”
“Ion respect it..my girl ain't did s*** to u jealous a** broke a** n*****,” he wrote on his Instagram story, according to VladTV. “I ain't from ATL so my ear ain't as close [to] the streets like that out here.. but all I ask is put a name on it .. put a location on it.. give me a chance to play ball wit ya..

On his new track, “SOUND OF MONEY,” Lou Phelps teams up with Madlib, (who he referred to as “the God” in a recent Instagram post) to create a California-cool track that’s perfect to add to your rotation if you’re already feeling that summer nostalgia creep in.
“I love the sound of money/I love the sound of change/If you ain’t talking money/Get the fuck out the way,” the Montreal rapper begins, creating a vibe that he described as “light and fun” to Complex.
“Usually MCs that rap over these sample-based beats tend to have serious or conscious bars, which is fine, but that specific instrumental sounded light and fun to me, so I did my best to match that energy.”
Back in May, Phelps released “Supersexe Freestyle,” which has been described as “raunchy” by some. As Complex points out, “SOUND OF MONEY” shows a different side of Phelps, proving to listeners that he’s definitely got range.
On top of the fire singles, the 27-year-old also has two albums under his belt – 2018’s 002 / LOVE ME and..
Meek Mill recently revealed how much time he feels he has left in the rap game, and his answer will likely upset many of his fans.
For the last decade, the 34-year-old rapper has been a driving force for hip-hop out of Philadelphia, but he doesn't think he'll be rapping for much longer. During a recent interview with Complex, Meek revealed that he'll probably be hanging up his microphone within the next five years.
Joseph Okpako/Getty Images”I got like three or four more years left,” said Meek during the interview. “That’s it! I’ve been rapping since I was 23. I can’t be performing forever. I think these the last years I’m going hard with music and then I’m gonna pursue other stuff.”
Releasing his latest studio album Expensive Pain a few weeks ago, Meek has remained active as an artist, dropping off new projects every few months. He promises to keep doing so until he retires, but don't fret if you need to hear Meek's gritty street bars after he hangs it all up..
Passengers on a train in Philadelphia merely recorded on their phones as a woman was raped for six uninterrupted minutes, according to Transit Police. The only person to call 911 was an off-duty officer who helped lead to the arrest of the alleged rapist.
“We want everyone to be angry, disgusted, and to join us in being resolute in keeping our system safe,” Transit Police Chief Thomas Nestel III said at a news conference on Monday. “We need the public to notify us when they see something that seems to be unusual.”
William Thomas Cain / Getty ImagesSEPTA has denounced the crime as a “horrendous criminal act,” and said their off-duty spokesperson could sense “something wasn't right.”
“Anybody that was on that train has to look in the mirror and ask why they didn't intervene or why they didn't do something,” Upper Darby Police Superintendent Timothy Bernhardt told CNN on Monday. “Collectively, they could have gotten together and done something.”
Bernhardt praised the victi..
