Drake’s ‘What’s Next’ Video Is An Exasperated Flex Full Of Snowy Late Night Drives

The Boy is back. Though rumors about Certified Lover Boy have been swirling since 2021 began, the timeline has been a little jittery so far. Fans were sure Drizzy’s next album was going to drop a few weeks ago, but his producer 40 insists that although they’ve been working all through the pandemic, it’s going to be some time still — but within the next two months. Drake, rather infamously, has been recovering from a pretty severe knee injury, but that doesn’t seem to limit his mobility in the new video that dropped tonight, the “What’s Next” video that comes alongside the release of a new mixtape, Scary Hours 2, which is obviously the follow up to Scary Hours. In the meantime, he’s also been busy relaunching the OVO Sound Radio Show with SiriusXM, notably moving the show away from its f

For the first time in nearly two years, we’ve received new music from Chance The Rapper. The Chicago native makes his return with his highly reflective single, “The Heart & The Tongue” and it comes with a music video that finds rapping the song in the many corners of his house as he looks to tackle the internal battles that he feels within.

Baby Keem Questions The Actions Of His Partner On His Mellow Single, ‘No Sense’

Baby Keem gained nationwide attention back in 2019 thanks to his breakout hit, “Orange Soda,” which appeared on his Die For My B*tch project. Since then, the Vegas rapper has kept things rather quiet, with the most noise he made coming through an appearance he made in an ad for the launch of Kendrick Lamar and Dave Free’s media company, PgLang, as well as landing a spot on the 2021 XXL Freshman class. After bringing 2020 to somewhat of a quiet end, Baby Keem is back in action for 2021. The Vegas rapper touches down with his new single, “No Sense.” On it, Keem tackles some tension that is present between him and his love interest. He questions her actions as a way to get under his skin while apologizing for his towards her. The single also arrives just a few days after he teased it in a b

Shorthanded Warriors lose to Suns in last game before All-Star break

Without Stephen Curry, Draymond Green and Kelly Oubre Jr., the Warriors lost 120-98 to the Suns Thursday in Phoenix. Facing a Suns team that entered the night winners of 15 of their last 18 games and with the second-best record in the Western Conference, the Warriors decided to rest Curry and Green on the second night of a back-to-back following Wednesday’s loss in Portland. Oubre was sidelined with a sprained wrist for the second straight game. All considered, a win for the Warriors (19-18) was a long shot and the Suns (24-11) put them away early with a 34-23 lead after the first quarter. But the Warriors after going down by 20 in the second quarter battled back to cut the deficit to single digits a handful of times in the second half — an encouraging sign for a young group that had to s...

Stefflon Don Hops On Saweetie And Doja Cat’s ‘Best Friend’ Remix

Even though the early accidental leak of “Best Friend” had Saweetie upset one night, now that the song is actually out, fans are giving it the love it deserves. Aside from launching the “Bestie In A Tessie” contest to give away Teslas, Saweetie and Doja Cat’s ode to female friendship is popping off like it should. In fact, the song is so catchy that another rising female rapper, Stefflon Don, wanted to hop on a remix to add another character to the friend group, giving her a verse early in the track. The British rapper is quickly earning fans on this side of the pond, adding bars to the song that flex with the best of them. Strangely enough, Stefflon isn’t the only other woman concerned with the “Best Friend” collaboration — Roc Nation duo Ceraadi also accused Saweetie and Doja of plagia

Coronavirus: Pasadena Unified schools will reopen for in-person learning on March 29

At the end of a nearly seven-hour meeting, the Pasadena Unified Board of Education voted on Thursday, March 4, to bring its youngest elementary school students back on campus for in-person instruction by the end of the month.  The first to return will be students in pre-kindergarten and kindergarten, who will come back to campus on March 29. First and second graders will come back on April 1. They’ll all leave for spring break one week later, coming back on April 13. That’s when students in third through fifth grade will join them.

McKinley Wright IV leads the way as CU Buffs pull away from Arizona State in regular season finale

Style points never are necessary, and in March they become completely irrelevant. And on Thursday the Buffaloes did something they hope turns into the norm as March moves forward by simply finding a way to get the job done. After a first half that was downright ugly at times, the 24th-ranked Buffs slowly overpowered Arizona State during the second half of the regular-season finale, pulling away down the stretch for an emotional 75-61 win at the CU Events Center. The victory gives the Buffs four wins in a row to complete the regular season one year after they struggled to five consecutive losses to finish the 2019-20 season. The win also all but locked up the third seed for the Buffs at the Pac-12 Conference tournament next week, as they will pass the loser of Saturday’s matchup between US

After the highs and lows of success, staying hungry is the Cubs’ top priority

John Antonoff/Chicago Sun-Times“I think we need to prove to ourselves that we can get where we want to be,” right fielder Jason Heyward said.  GLENDALE, Ariz. — When the Cubs started their run of success in 2015, there was no denying how bad they wanted to win. Back then, the Cubs had nothing to lose and everything to gain, and a year later they did. But after winning the World Series in 2016, the years that followed haven’t gone exactly as planned. There’s no denying the Cubs have been successful since they burst onto the scene in 2015, with playoff appearances in five of the last six years. But with disappointing finishes the last three seasons and a core that was expected to do more, the last few years have felt underwhelming. The talk among players throughout the first three weeks

Cuomo’s advisers covered up high nursing home death tolls by pushing NY health officials to alter reports

Summary List PlacementNew York Gov. Andrew Cuomo's advisers pressed state health officials to change a report last summer to hide the true count of COVID-19-related deaths at nursing homes, the Wall Street Journal first reported. The report, compiled by the New York State Health Department, was released in July and looked at virus transmission in nursing homes. It was a response to criticism the state received over a March 25 directive that said people could not be denied access to nursing homes based on a positive COVID-19 diagnosis. Sources told The Journal the report initially included data on COVID-19 deaths that occurred in nursing homes, as well as those that occurred at hospitals after a person became infected at a nursing home. However, Cuomo's top advisers successfully pushed ...
