“During the process creating Cult Beauty, I was actually going through an intense custody battle with my baby mom that led me to writing this song,” Bogan tells HipHopDX. “The first verse is basically breaking down some the smaller details that had taken place in our relationship leading up to the court date. Every word is true and even in some parts, my baby mom will be the only one that understands what I’m saying. At the end the first verse, I confess that I wish it could’ve worked out but now, because what you’ve put me through, it could never be the same.
“The second verse describes what one may have to realize when it comes to moving on and talks about what should motivate you moving forward. This song is everything I would tell someone that is going through what I went through.”
He adds, “Thanks to 2thirty5 for their amazing production and bringing Alex and I together on this masterpiece.”

Who doesn’t love a good mystery? The identity of newcomer Amés is currently unknown, all we know so far is that he hails from Greece.
Amés’ latest release “Loved” instantly pulls you in with a blend of futuristic deep, dark house & an ambient atmosphere rich with old school analog synths. The track opens up with a dark steady bassline that’s accompanied with bright bell-like arpeggio plucks which creates a mysterious atmosphere that quickly leads into ethereal vocals and progresses into a build-up full of anticipation as the bassline rumbles its way through to a deep and dark house drop that is sure to set off dance floors in clubs worldwide.
Amés has created a very addictive combination of familiar sounds from the past with a modern twist. We definitely recommend keeping an eye on him in the future – don’t say we didn’t warn you!
Amés – Loved
New York, NY – Not too long before Tekashi 6ix9ine was arrested last November, fellow New York rapper Casanova made peace with the polarizing figure — despite their very public disdain for each other.
Cas explained in a November 2018 Instagram post he realized 6ix9ine was “a mislead good kid” who “didn’t know what he was signing up for.”

Looking back at this night,it was one the defining moments my life as a man..I was faced with a Dilemma,a life changing decision I had to make…should I do something to him ,end everything right now and go to jail or should I look him in his eyes talk to him like a man and give him a way out…I was waiting to catch him lacking for weeks and months and i finally did the devil placed him right in my hands..if u would seen how it unfolded u would understand why I did what I did.i had to play chess not checkers….after my first look in his eyes upclose and reading his body language I understood he was a mislead good kid and he didn’t know what he was signing up for.before this happened I had people try to belittle my gangsta,clubs stop booking me,DJ’s stop playin my music,homies turn they back on me,people tryin to throw batteries in my back praying i crash out..even after we squashed it people was mad at me.even tho I made that decision thinking for me and others..I realized negativity will override positive VIBEZ anyday..the people that wanted me to win was happy while the people that wanted me to fail was mad..while everyone wanted to kill him people thought I would be there sacrifice and savior and do it.but how can u use me as a pawn when I’m a king‼️fast forward to now the same way everyone is calling him stupid and bashing him is the same way ya would been doin me even if I would went out like a “G”,But in all actuality I did go out like a “G”I thought and use my brain..and I’m here free to talk about it..my next move will b my power move‼️stay tuned..JUST REMEMBER THERE IS NO DOUBLING BACK FOR THE ONES THAT TURNT THEY BACK‼️‼️AND FOR THE RECORD I STILL DONT WANNA B THE KING OF NEW YORK…NEW YORK IS PUSSY‼️‼️
Last month, 6ix9ine took the stand as the government’s star witness in the case alleged Nine Trey Gangsta Blood members Anthony “Harv” Ellison and Aljermiah “Nuke” Mack. During his testimony, he admitted he and other Nine Trey members attempted to shoot Cas outside Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.
Day 2 Tekashi 6ix9ine’s witness hearing:
• His crew surveillanced and attacked Trippie Redd
• Names Casanova and asks to “run” him down over diss track
• Gave Frank White’s wife 2k
• How Nine Trey used Tekashi’s money to “equip” themselves

In a recent interview with Ebro In The Morning, Cas opened up about his relationship with the incarcerated 6ix9ine and spoke about the hypocrisy he’s currently witnessing.
“Before he went to jail, we was cool,” he began. “I ain’t have no problem with him. I feel like every single person in the United States turned their back on me, especially in New York. My music went from playing every second to ‘Set Trippin”not even playing on the radio.”
He continued, “Even the people calling him, whatever they callin’ him… Shut the fuck up, ’cause y’all was suckin’ his dick — pardon my language — y’all was suckin’ his dick. When I was outside, acting a fool and sneakin’ in clubs and trying to look for him and stuff like that, it’s, ‘Cas, you a bully. You ain’t got no hits.’
“I ain’t got nothing bad to say about him. Y’all deal with that. All them niggas that’s with him, I don’t feel sorry for them at all. They went down the wrong route to begin with.”

Morgan Page‘s “The Longest Road” road has gotten it’s a fair share of reworks & mashups over the years, but the newest one by progressive mastermind Matt Fax might be the finest one yet.
“The Longest Road To The Ground”, the title of this masterpiece, is full-blown progressive goodness. Melodies that compliment each other to absolute perfection, Page & Fax truly drive home the message on this by blending together Page’s “The Longest Road” & Fax’s “To The Ground” into one of my favorite progressive tunes of the year, hands down.

Though Philly may not have given Hip Hop the sheer numbers a New York or Los Angeles, what they’ve done to widen the soundscape cannot be denied. Schooly D is credited with inventing Gangsta Rap around the same time DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince were dropping family-friendly hits. G. Love and Special Sauce fused Hip Hop with blues, while The Roots showed us how dope a live show could be with a full band in lieu two turntables and a microphone.
Now, former Klipmode standout Suzi Analogue is expanding the sound even further – similar to what Flying Lotus did for the West Coast – with a sound that cannot be chained to a specific genre.
Suzi was one the headliners at Red Bull Music’s Dizzyland, an event that celebrated queer and POC artists which is where HipHopDX caught up with her and she explained how one album in particular turned out to be life-changing.
“I wasn’t old enough when the Bobby Digital album dropped but when I found it as a teen I was obsessed with it because I was just getting into deeper listening. I was listening to it like, ‘he’s rapping, but I know he made the beats’ and that dual relationship was something I identified with early on because I realized I’m not just a songwriter, I was into Hip Hop and I’m into beats,” Suzi told HipHopDX in an exclusive conversation. “He’s a beatmaker, he’s rapping and he owns this identity: RZA as Bobby Digital, it feels like this whole world and it’s his world.
The “Jump Rope” creator was so enthralled by the Wu-Tang frontman’s project, she gave it a permanent place within her own identity.
“I had a friend that was like ‘yo, you love Bobby Digital so much, you should be Suzi Analogue, his counterpart’ and I was like ‘cool.’ Last year on 4/20 I played an event with him in Miami and it just felt like this was full circle,” said Suzi. “I didn’t get to talk to him cause he had his whole camp and they had him really padded in a corner but I just played my beats like ‘I know he hears this.’”
Suzi expanded her sound even further as a part Klipmode (along with Devonwho, Mndsgn and Knxwledge). It was a time that, like Bobby Digital, inspired her to break boundaries even more.
“Klipmode was a time heavy discovery for all us. We didn’t let any us become restricted. We were all in Philly in my apartment, we had the studio and we’d be playing Philly battle rap, and recite bars from that to each other just joking, but then we would go listen to maybe Gospel,” Suzi remembered. “It just varied. We never let each other become constricted and it showed in the imagination our production. We were all just so imaginative so working together it was all about imagination and bringing that into the everyday,” she added.
On the subject battle rap, Suzi spoke on why so many battle rappers fail to make the jump from underground rhyming into the mainstream.

“The reason why going from battle rap into making actual songs] is a hard transition is because it’s a lifestyle change. When you’re just battle rapping you’re trying to impress the people around you and you catch a thrill f that. It kind becomes addictive so then you’re just battling people all the time like ‘I’m the best’ and then when you have to sit in a studio for those people who are battle rappers that’s torturous,” Suzi noted.
“It’s quiet, there’s no other energy around. Battle rappers tend to thrive f the energy around them. It hypes them up, so it’s just a whole experience change that’s like exercise. As a producer, I try to keep all this in mind because I try to coach or make everyone I work with feel comfortable enough to get through that. Artists are coming from so many places and there are so many talented rappers, but I would say for battle rappers, if you can’t really find how to be a recording artist just write songs for people because you will get paid.”
Netflix is keeping the content coming. Gaten Matarazzo‘s upcoming show Prank Encounters got an official trailer, which you can view above.
“Each episode of Prank Encounters takes two complete strangers on the surprise ride of a lifetime. It’s business as usual until their paths collide and their one-day assignments turn into supernatural surprises. Where fear meets funny, Prank Encounters is the most elaborate hidden camera prank show ever devised,” Just Jared writes.

There’s an important issue going on in the Kardashian household. Kourtney believes someone is stealing from her.
“So, we discovered that there was cash missing from your wallet,” the reality star’s assistant says in the clip above. “So I don’t know if you spent it out the other night?”
“It was definitely there,” Kourtney responded. “Like, I know for a fact… the fact that money is missing from my wallet definitely doesn’t feel like a coincidence. We had an iPad missing in the house, too.”
