YG gets Donald Trump’s “own kind” with G-Eazy and Macklemore for Part 2 of “FDT,” just a day after Trump has formally been elected as the Republican delegate for president.

The attack on Trump continues as the three of them go ALL the way in on the Republican candidate by touching on recent tragedies, endorsing Hilary Clinton and even pushing for Obama to have a third term.

G-Eazy leads off by questioning how Trump has made it this far, while calling him a white supremacist and terrorist. Gerald goes on to rap, “If he’s next up, take a day to undo what Obama fixed up,” and closes it by saying Trump’s daughter, Ivanka can get it.

Macklemore, suggests banning white dudes with trenchcoats and rifles instead of Muslims and stresses the fact “…that we ain’t gonna let you fuck up four years.”

Listen to the full Trump onslaught below.




Jeremih surprised his fans with a new mixtape titled ‘Late Nights: Europe.’ Earlier today he deleted all his tweets and sent out a tweet that read, “7:17 pm,” the time he dropped the tape.

This one is a follow-up to last year’s ‘Late Nights’. On ‘Late Nights: Europe’ he pays tribute to all the European cities he visited while touring and working on it. Some of the cities are Dubai, Berlin, Amsterdam and London to name a few.

He discussed the title of the mixtape and track list reasoning with USA Today.

“Nobody really knows. I was on a European tour for the last 30 days and the best thing about it was creating a new body of work called Late Nights: Europe,” he told USA Today. “We named a song after every place we went: Paris, Amsterdam, Czech Republic, Barcelona.”

The 14-track project includes features from Wiz Khalifa, Ty Dolla $ign, The Game, K Camp, Krept and Konan and others.

Jeremih’s next release is expected to be his joint album with PARTYNEXTDOOR titled, ‘Late Night Party,’ that the two are confirmed to be working on. In the meantime listen to ‘Late Nights: Europe,’


In addition to Jermaine Dupri giving us his exclusive new song, “F U Pay Me,” we also talked to the OG about the Kanye West and Taylor Swift phone call which Kim Kardashian leaked a few days ago. JD’s response was as real as it gets and he does agree that Ye did make Taylor a bit famous.

Future Drops Two New Songs [AUDIO]


Two new Future songs surfaced today, one of which is a old song from last year.

The first one “Paparazzi” was teased in the “Drinks On Us” visual in August of last year and was supposed to appear on his and Mike WiLL Made It’s joint mixtape, ‘Ape Shit.’

Future wasn’t too happy with “Paparazzi” leaking and expressed it on Twitter.

On the other track, “Guap On Me,” Future lets everyone how much money he has on him and how “bitch gon’ fuck for free.”

Which one you feeling the most? Tell us in the comments below.

Future and Drake will embark on the ‘Summer Sixteen Tour’ starting Wednesday in Austin, Texas.



Nipsey Hussle and Dave East form a coast to coast connection on the latest edition of #MarathonMondays with “Clarity.” Nip also tagged Bino Rideaux for the hook on the mellow track. We will premiere the song on the Power 106 #LIFTOFF tonight, in the mean time listen below.



French Montana and Drake have been teasing what is now known as “No Shopping” for a couple months, after a snippet of the song made its rounds on the Internet. The song was premiered today on Apple Music’s OVO Sound Radio.

On the snippet you can clearly hear a “pump, pump, pump it up” which was a shot by Drake at rapper Joe Buddens, resulting in Buddens dropping a few diss tracks aimed at the 6 God.

Drizzy continues throwing shots at Buddens on his verse by rapping, “I’m not a one-hit wonder, they know all my stuff,” he raps. “You let me turn into the ni**a that you almost was.”

French meanwhile takes the braggadocio route by rapping, “Word to Diddy, we Cirocin’/ Word to Biggie, we’ll be Pac-in’/I just bought Selena’s crib, I’m poppin’/I just told Drizzy, “Let me take Serena to the tropics.”

The video for the song should be coming soon as the two recently shot it in the Dominican Republic.

Listen to the full song below.

“No Shopping” will be on French Montana’s sophomore album ‘MC4’ dropping August 19th. Pre-order it HERE.



L.A. Leakers Rewind: July 10th – July 16th



The Game has always been a major advocate for change on social issues in America. Just last week he along with Snoop Dogg and Problem led a peaceful rally in LA and met with the Mayor, Eric Garcetti and LAPD Chief, Charlie Beck in hopes of unifying LA.

This week, Game joined Power 106’s J. Cruz and Yesi Ortiz for a special edition of #KnowledgeIsPower, where he along with Nick Cannon, Dr. Abdullah, and Wendy Carrillo talked about the ongoing race issues in America and the definition of #BlackLivesMatter.

Following the conversation Game delivered a very powerful spoken word speech that he tirelessly worked on and fell asleep writing “so, it may sound unfinished at the end.” Read the lyrics to the unnamed piece below.

Game’s Spoken Word Lyrics

The problem started with our fathers being forced to sell drugs to our own people given to us by the same government that locks us away in cages. Taking black men out of the ghettos they were put in and leaving the black woman and child alone to survive in a world with little or no resources because they lack the strength instilled upon man by God who as our creator knowing which roll the male species will play in building of what we now know as the earth. We were put here to share this one race, the human race, but over time the devil in his hatred of God as caused a wedge between man and the earth or a glitch in the matrix as some would say causing a ripple in the bloodlines of Black, White, Asian, Spanish and Indian cultures causing a segregated lifestyle in which the minority, yes the minority, it being us, African-Americans has surfed the most in all areas deemed inhumane from being slaves tied in chains to slaves hung by gangs.

These gangs, the American government, and KKK are now equal to African-Americans when we roll up and pull out a KKK. But who are we pointing our guns at? Each other, our sister and our brothers, but we scared, yeah we scared to point it in the direction of others. But the white man he’ll walk in church and kill our aunties and our mothers and we just lay down in streets cold and stiff under white covers. The same covers the Klu Klux Klan wore over their over heads to do us in then we get pulled over by the police and they wonder why we got guns because you ain’t gonna shot us man.

We want to defend ourselves like Mutombo, we want to be at home reading our children Micky Mouse and Dumbo, we want pardons by Obama before he gone, so we make it home just in time for grandmothers gumbo, but it won’t happen cause even Barack don’t have the freedom that he wants. He in the white house with black skin, I’d rather be out in the front, but his daughters, beautiful young black queens, living the American dream while our daughters are on the other side of the fence getting pregnant in their teens and I do not blame our President for sh**. I blame the government for trying to ease the black man since our existence.

This fight has been fixed it is a trap, yeah it is a trap black man, set up so we can never be as rich as Bruce Wayne that only leaves us with Batman, a character in a mask that has to hide his identity. Do all the work for police killing minorities saving them time and a whole lot of energy and we got enemies, we got a lot of enemies government want to see us all in the penitentiary trying to put the slave black in a n*****. You know they’ll murder us. Look how they did John Kennedy. So black man please put the blunt down, the lean and the Hennessy. It’s time to father our future so our existence is more than just a memory.


Chance The Rapper flawlessly paid homage to Muhammad Ali with a real soulful tribute at the ESPN ESPY Awards. In the process, Chance also debuted a new song while Ali’s greatest moments flickered on the jumbotron.

“Ain’t nowhere greater,” he sang. “Ain’t nowhere brighter / Ain’t nowhere better / Ain’t no one prettier / Ain’t no one wiser / Ain’t no one better.”

Chance then proceeds with the touching chorus: “I was a rock/ I was a rock and roller/ Back in my day/ But now I’m just a rock/ I was a rock and roller/ Back in my day/ But now I’m just a rock/ I was a rock.”

On stage joining Lil Chano was Jamila Woods, Peter Cottontale, Teddy Jackson, Donnie Trumpet and a full choir that added depth and emotion to the performance.

See Chance’s pre-performance warm-up with NBA MVP, Steph Curry below.

Following the show he expressed his gratitude for Ali. What a great moment for Chance, whom although independent has accomplished some real big things.


The best way Rich Homie Quan honored the Notorious B.I.G. last night at VH1’s Hip-Hop Honors, was not by performing “Get Money,” but by wearing a Coogi sweater and a pair of Timberland boots.

Quan hit the stage with Lil’Kim to honor Big Poppa but was better off staying on the sidelines. Not even sure why Quan was picked to honor Biggie. I can think of atleast 10 other guys who would’ve fit that bill better.

It is clear that the hip-hop world is feeling “Some Type Of Way” after watching that horrendous tribute. Check out some of the Internet’s reaction below.


Kobe Bryant celebrated his final NBA season with an epic 60-point game. On Thursday he was awarded with the “Legend” award at the Nickolodeon’s Kids Choice Sport awards.

Bryant was brought on stage by Zendaya to receive the award.

Following his motivating speech at the event, he was covered with golden slime. The Black Mamba matched the 16 NBA championships he won in his career with the slime.

Watch the full event on Nickolodeon tomorrow night.
