“I want to start a fund/foundation to make sure his child and family are well taken care of not just temporary but for life,” Uzi wrote on Twitter (after his passing, XXXTentacion’s mother Cleopatra Bernard revealed that the rapper’s girlfriend was pregnant).
Stars like Nicki Minaj, Lil Yachty, and Ski Mask The Slump God expressed their support soon after Uzi’s initial tweet. “I could handle this Alone but I just wanna make sure if anything happens to me Yall hit my Mommy up like yall hit for features,” Uzi wrote
Sleeping with your favorite rapper just got a little easier, thanks to this unique and somewhat bizarre brand of hip-hop inspired pillows. A company with the hilarious name of “Soft Ass Rappers” has come up with a custom series of hip-hop themed pillows, each of which boast the face of one of the game’s best and brightest. For $75 dollars, you can get your hands on one of ten pillows, featuring the likenesses of Drake, 21 Savage, Lil Uzi Vert, Kanye West, Chance The Rapper, A$AP Rocky, Young Thug, Gucci Mane, Frank Ocean and Rihanna. With the exception of the Drizzy edition, which features a rendition of the infamous “Crying Drake” meme, each pillow is designed to copy the artist’s signature facial expression.
Reality TV fixture no more – Cardi B has officially arrived as a legitimate, bankable hip-hop act.
The rapper’s single “Bodak Yellow” has been making waves in the month since its initial release, breaking into the Top 20 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart. Now, she’s hit a new music milestone, finding her song inside the Top 10 on Billboard’s Hot Hip-Hop and R&B chart. Moving up four spots since last week, she’s now ranking higher than 21 Savage, Lil Uzi Vert and Future on the Hip-Hop chart, with no signs of slowing down anytime soon.
It’s rarefied air for a female emcee, much less one with Cardi’s relative lack of experience. He’s the highest-charting woman on an unassisted rap track (i.e. – no features) since Nicki Minaj‘s “Anaconda” went all the way to No. 2 on Billboard’s Hot 100 back in 2014. If her song continues to show strong gains in terms of its numbers, she could soon join the ranks of Missy Elliott, Eve, Foxy Brown, Lauryn Hill and other female emcees who’ve cracked the Top 10 list for the hottest songs in the United States.
According to Hits Daily Double, “Bodak Yellow” has also shown very strong streaming gains since last week and was also the biggest crossover radio add for the period ending August 8th, beating out 21 Savage’s “Bank Account” in the process. It’s safe to say that Cardi B is reaching unprecedented heights.
