In the span of his career, Gronk accomplished a great deal, earning three Super Bowl championships and heading to the Pro Bowl five times. To commemorate his retirement, he shared a flick of himself hoisting the coveted Lombardi trophy after his final season.  

“Thank you for everyone accepting who I am and the dedication I have put into my work to be the best player I could be,” he added. “But now its time to move forward and move forward with a big smile knowing that the New England Patriots Organization, Pats Nation, and all my fans will be truly a big part of my heart for rest of my life.

GettyImages-1026043708.jpg


Juice WRLD’s Death Race For Love is back at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart for the second week in a row after earning 74,000 equivalent album units during the week ending in March 21st. It marks a decrease of 55 percent from its opening frame of 165,000 units last week.

This week, Death Race earns its top slot with just over 70,000 units due to a relatively slow week for the top 10. Currently, there are no debuts to boast in the coveted slots, with the usual suspects shifting positions among themselves, Billboard reports that most of them have already visited the No. 1 slot in the past, with only two albums in this week’s top 10 having not been to the penthouse.

Following behind Death Race is Ariana Grande’s Thank U, Next at No. 2 with 66,000 equivalent units while Lady Gaga while Bradley Cooper’s A Star Is Born soundtrack arrives at No. 3 with 40,000 units. A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie’s Hoodie SZN extends its stay in the top 10 with 33,000 units for No. 4.

Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody soundtrack tracks at No. 5, holding steady with 33,000 units. Following close behind is Post Malone’s beerbongs & bentleys moving 7-6 with 31,000 units while Drake’s Scorpion moves up to No. 7 with 30,000 units. Travis Scott’s Astroworld ascends to No. 8 with 28,000 units being followed by Meek Mill’s Championships at No. 9 with approximately 28,000 units. Closing things out is Gunna’s Drip or Drown 2 at No. 10 after earning 27,000 units.

Mueller Report Finds No Evidence Of Trump & Russia Conspiracy

GettyImages-1137566722.jpg


Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into the Trump campaign has been a hot topic worldwide for the last two years. Democrats have been hoping that Mueller’s investigation, which led to 2,800 subpoenas and nearly 500 search warrants, would be the nail in the coffin for Trump. Their hopes have been shot down. Although several of Trump’s closest cronies have already been indicted and charged, Trump himself has been cleared. Mueller’s report found no evidence of collusion between President Donald Trump’s team and Russia. According to a letter by Attorney General William Barr sent to Congress summarizing the findings of the report, the Trump campaign did not collude with Russia to win the 2016 election. No further indictments were recommended. “The Special Counsel’s investigation did not find that the Trump campaign or anyone associated with it conspired or coordinated with Russia in its efforts to influence the 2016 US Presidential Election,” Barr wrote.

“The Special Counsel’s investigation determined that there were two main Russian efforts to influence the 2016 election,” Barr continued. “The first involved attempts by a Russian organization, the Internet Research Agency (IRA), to conduct disinformation and social media operations in the United States designed to sow social discord, eventually with the aim of interfering with the election. As noted above, the Special Counsel did not find that any U.S. person or Trump campaign official or associate conspired or knowingly coordinated with the IRA in its efforts, although the Special Counsel brought criminal charges against a number of Russian nationals and entities in connection with these activities.” The public has already known that Russia did interfere with the elections, or at least influenced the minds of Americans with targeted social media ads and memes. 

“The second element involved the Russian government’s efforts to conduct computer hacking operations designed to gather and disseminate information to influence the election,” Barr wrote. “The Special Counsel found that Russian government actors successfully hacked into computers and obtained emails from persons affiliated with the Clinton campaign and Democratic Party organizations, and publicly disseminated those materials through various intermediaries, including WikiLeaks.” There have been charges placed against several Russian military officers, but once again, there was no evidence that Trump helped orchestrate these hacks.

T.I. Claps Back At Trolls For Body Shaming Wife Tiny Harris: "Yall Got Me Fucked Up"

1553457962_3a1cf668e29987bccbac0bac93482259.jpg



tsT.I.’s hard-nosed reputation precedes. Just watching him stop and frisk a Gucci-wearing bystander the other day, loaded up the speedometer. His convictions are rarely ill-conceived. His commentary seldom falls flat, even the stronger impulses of the bunch.

When T.I. uses social media to call foul on society’s perceived ills, there’s always a sense that fisticuffs or even stronger convictions could pop off at any moment. His words literally jump off the page, and it’s not only because he types in all caps 33% of the time.

The activity meter on his Instagram feed has been riotous the past couple days, all stemming from the fact he’s been posting pictures of his family. Just two days ago, T.I. was forced to set a troll straight who’d insulted his daughter Zonnique. 

The “sonning” sounded off like a thunderous clap, only to be upstaged by a 2nd “clap back” he mustered 15 hours ago. This time his rant concerned lewd comments that were made about his wife’s appearance. She was pictured next to T.I and the rest of the family squadron in the aforementioned family uploads.

“Ok,maybe this is a teachable moment… What do y’all really hope to achieve by coming on my page speaking ill of my wife under a picture of my family???? WTF make y’all think I’m just gon let y’all Try ME & MINES????” he questioned rhetorically.

Several of T.I.’s word selections conveyed a sense of alarm: the inference of a teachable moment, the use of All Caps, and the use of the word “restraint,” no different in its essentialist form than i”YALL GOT ME FUCKED UP SHAWTY… Be out here shaped like a whole 2liter Peach Faygo and got the nerve to make critical, disrespectful comments about MINES?!?! I obviously love it and have loved it for over 18yrs now…” he continued.

To cap things off, TIP signaled a beginning of the end: a final threshold of tolerance. At worst, social media runs the risk of losing T.I.’s presence over what… a powderless keg of meaningless insults, I certainly hope not.

Skinnyfromthe9 Addresses Restaurant Attack In New Song

1553453323_b601794ef6174e4b89e0b0f4f86b0e24.jpg



We all know that music can be the medicine that alleviates the pain for both artists and fans. It looks like Skinnyfromthe9 is letting his grievances flow through his music. As we reported, a video of Skinnyfromthe9 being attacked was posted online by Adam22. Skinny was enjoying some Hibachi before his life got flipped-turned upside down. After the altercation went viral, Skinny released a statement. “The dude that hit me is a straight bitch,” he said. “He came up to me while I was eating at a restaurant by myself with a girl and was like, ‘Yo, I know you eatin’ right now, but can I take a picture?’ I got up, put my arm around him like we was gonna take a picture —like we was posin’— and the dude snuck me. And then we started wrestlin’, and that’s what happened. My face is fine. I still fuck bitches. I still got all my jewelry – the dumbass didn’t even get my jewelry. He tried.” Check out the footage below. 

The New Jersey rapper took to Instagram on Saturday night (March 23) to give fans a peek at a new song he recorded where he addresses the altercation. “Yeah, Skinnyfromthe9 and I’m giving ’em hell/Niggas taking out they phones so they going to tell,” he raps on the track. “I’m on probation, I can’t act a fool/So when I’m confronted, I gotta act cool/’Cause they trying to post it all up on the ‘Gram/Bitch, I got snuck by a wannabe fan/Hold my ground and stand tall like a man/Bitch, I’m from Jersey they know who I am.” Check out the track below.

R. Kelly Given The Runaround: Dubai Government Denies "Concert Plans"

1553449797_445373daafe6ad0f9c52cf09db101321.jpg



R. Kelly eventually backed down from his request to perform a series of concert in Dubai, but as it turns the government of the United Arab Emirates is suggesting no such plans were ever in place. For what it’s worth, R. Kelly and his attorney Steven Greenberg did inform the media of a loose itinerary that would have seen the singer fulfill an obligation of three to five shows, this according to a report published by The Blast.

There’s no reason to believe either side of this debate, it that is effectively what’s unfolding before our eyes, between Kelly and the sheikhdom’s ruling Al Maktoum family. A denial from a ruling party of this stature does limit Kelly and his reps from seeking a similar arrangement elsewhere. 

“Authorities in Dubai have not received any request for a performance by singer R. Kelly nor are there any venues that have been booked,” read a statement issued by Dubai’s official media department.

Soon after the sheikhdom’s issued its statement, the mass media consortium on America soil fought hard for comprehensive coverage, but unfortunately, the usually gregarious Greenberg and his cohorts were M.I.A when it counted most. Nonetheless, there is a remote possibility the Dubai consulate is lying, after having undergone a change of heart. Whether Kelly is successful in seeking alternate means, those concerts won’t be hosted anywhere close to the Persian Gulf, that much is certain.

Adrien Broner Continues To Take L's, Gets Cuffed In Miami After Yelling At Cops

1553444785_a363cb47bdbb3a984b051d0a643f9536.jpg



Adrien Broner has found himself embroiled in more drama. According to TMZBroner was in South Beach, Miami around 9 PM on Saturday, walking the streets with fellow boxer Gervonta Davis. Witnesses say that Broner jaywalked on Collins Avenue, a busy intersection, and a driver honked at him. As expected, Adrien got annoyed and smacked the hood of the car while yelling at the driver. The Miami Police force was already out in ample numbers due to Spring Break, and they heard the uproar and responded immediately. Not one to back down, Broner began to yell at the police when they approached and warned him to calm down or else he would be arrested. Broner refused to calm down (as if asking someone to calm down has ever worked), and police cuffed him. 

The police did not arrest him and he was let go in time to hit Exchange Miami not too long after. It’s been a busy week for Broner. He threatened to punch or shoot homosexuals that flirt with him after social media star Andrew C. Caldwell allegedly slid in Broner’s DMsIf any f*g, punk ass nigga come run up on me, trying to touch me on all that gay shit, I’m letting you know right now — if I ain’t got my gun on me, I’m knocking you the fuck out,” retorted Broner. If I got my gun on me, I’m shooting you in the fucking face, and that’s on God and them.” A restraining order has since been filed against Broner by Caldwell.

Chilli & T-Boz Reveal Plans For A TLC Broadway Musical

1553443619_960a915b939daf77ef9bedf5c013a849.jpg



TLC: the Broadway Musical is closer to the conception than any of us would have expected a half-decade ago. In the words of Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas, seated next to the group’s other living member Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins for an interview with Cheddar, the writing process is very much underway. 

“We have so many stories to tell,” Chilli said during the interview. “We didn’t tell it all in our biopic we did with VH1. A lot of good stuff. It’s gonna be very emotional but a good ride.” 

In spelling out the VH1 specials as a prologue for the group’s overarching vision, Chilli and T-Boz are implying that many stories were left untold, most of which I would assume still hold interest today. As writer Fnr Tigg accurately pointed out, the prospective TLC musical wouldn’t lack in material or inspiration for that matter.

For one thing, Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes is something of a cult figure, within the group itself. She was once signed to Suge Knight at Death Row, which in itself, is an anecdote worth exploring, perhaps on its own.

Truthfully speaking, would a TLC musical be enough to lure you over, those who aren’t already gilded members of the Drama Club? Chilli and Boz do appear excited over the project, but there’s a reason to believe ardent TLC fans would have much preferred another studio project instead. Then again, there’s something to be said about preserving one’s legacy, before it reaches a point of decay.

Akon Plots The Family Business: Teases His Teenage Son's "Konvict Music" Debut

1553436894_7bb2e7e8a5f620ea9ded3c0cffdf06e3.jpg



Akon’s musical lineage is often misplaced in several undefinable categories as if he were som all-consuming entity representing the whole of Africa. The reality could not be any further from the truth. Konvict Music isn’t being kept afloat as a historical keepsake. For the 45-year old singer, still very much a renegade in spirit, the family business is something he’d like to impart on his 15-year old son Jahvor, or Jah as he prefers to be called. 

TMZ was asked to break the news by Akon himself, in forwarding them a teaser of Jah’s prospective lead single “Locked Away.” As you’ll see, the similarities between Akon and his son are quite uncanny, especially when bunched together on this song, one after the other. Not only does “Locked Away” bear a strong resemblance to “Locked Up,” recorded in 2004. They also kind of lay claim to a similarly-veined style and vocal register, listen for yourself.

“My son wrote the chorus and his verse to symbolize how a kid could be mentally ‘locked up’ and can’t escape the inevitable ways of the streets [and] becoming a product of the environment,” Akon told TMZ, implying that his son shared his depth of character.

That’s not all: Akon’s other son Ty Pittman was recently featured in a MattyBRaps music video with over 500k views within days of being submitted. And yet it’s Jah’s album that’s first on the docket, with Akon estimating a June release for his son’s Konvit Music debut, in line with the commencement of “African-American Music Appreciation Month.”
