After 8 years, rapper Shy Glizzy has put out visuals to his platinum-certified single “White Girl” that he released back in 2014. The song had just hit the platinum status this past week on November 30.
He spoke of the milestone he reached on his Instagram where he shared that he received the accomplishment all while being independent.
“White Girl certified 💿 100% independently without any distribution or radio and I own all my masters and publishing (sorry I had to pop my s— 😩). I set myself up for the win, never sold out! But it’s all THANKS TO Y’ALL.. When you have amazing fans that believe in you then all is possible. They tryna count me out, but I was taught to put my trust in God and not in ppl. Stay tuned… GG 💚”
Late rapper Chinx’s wife, Janelli Caceres-Pickens, manager Doug “Biggs” Ellison, and French Montana have came together to release new material. The album is CR6 which is addition to the Cocaine Riot compilation that has 12-tracks and features artist such as Offset, Benny The Butcher, Red Cafe, Zack and of course, French Montana.
Upon making CR6, Pickens speaks of the process and how painful it has been to do so and spoke to TMZ of how “painful but rewarding it has been.”
“I’m glad to be in this position to still give fans music. There’s a few favorites like “Jackpot” it brings us back to his original Cocaine Riot which is his mixtapes he was putting up. I feel like it just gives u that New York sound that we missed so much. I’m very happy for this one and feel it’s very anticipated. Fans have been waiting a long time.
Chinx had died due to being fatally shot in 2015 and was signed to French Montana’s label, Coke Boys. Check out CR6 below:

Drake has been set to appear at The Apollo theater back in November of this year, but due to understanding circumstances such as close friend Take Off’s passing has pushed the original date back. The dates were pushed back December, but now has been pushed back again.
According to a statement sent to Complex, Drake will now be set to perform on January 21 and January 22 as he says it’s due to production delays.
“These upcoming shows for SiriusXM are so incredibly special for us. If you are going to play the world famous Apollo Theater, it has to be a world class production. We as a team have been working around the clock not just putting together a concert but an experience our fans deserve. With that said, we are up against some production delays that are just out of our control.” Drake, SiriusXM and Sound 42 stated.
The decision was made when all parties decided on not going on with the shows due to not resolving the production issues. “After many difficult meetings and conversations, the shows will now take place on January 21st and 22nd. The Apollo has been so incredibly gracious throughout this process and we look forward to bringing a legendary show to this legendary stage.”
Latto, GlorRilla and Gabgsta Boo’s “FTCU” is here and the girls are showing out! To accompany the single’s release, the rappers have released visuals to the song.
We hear Latto and GloRilla rap on the verses while Gangsta Boo assist with the ad-libs and we hear the lyrics:
Latto: “Muggin’ like they want some smoke, but they ain’t deep enough (They weak as f—-) / Young, ratchet, rich, and I’m rude as f—-, these b——es know what’s up (B——) / Came in this bit’ with a stick, don’t at me, b——, you know it’s tucked(grr)”
GloRilla: “I can’t walk up in the club if I ain’t get that backend (Give me that) / They was at the club on live, we caught them b——es lackin’ (Cap) / Eleven deep up in his booth, we posted like, “What’s happenin’?” (What up?) I pray to God a ho don’t run up, all my b——es jackin’ (Three thousand)”
All ladies brought pressure to the track with a theme of “coming outside” with the aesthetic visuals to match. Check out the video below:
21 Savage is here to clear up somethings up in regards to his latest collab with Nas, “One Mic, One Glock,” and of his personal relationships. The Slaughter Gang CEO appeared in Clubhouse to address the backlash he has received over the song’s release and many claiming he did the song for clout and only because of the comments he made about Nas.
He decided to end all noise not only with the collab but about his relationship with fellow Atlanta rapper, Latto. Many have stood firm in believing that he and Latto were secretly dating and he is her mystery boyfriend, but he has cleared things up.
“I don’t do all the antics and s—. I don’t got a celebrity girlfriend. I’m not finna be out everywhere. I’m not dropping music every other week. I’m not going on Live talking about n—as every other week.”
He continues, “Me and Nas been talking about music, on my kids, way before all of that s— happened. We, like, been figuring out how we was going to do a song, before this, on my mama. I been had his number, he been telling him he was a fan of my s—, I been telling him the same thing before all of this s— happened. That’s why he didn’t take what I say in no disrespectful way ’cause he knew what I was trying to say, ’cause I ain’t even that type of n—-.”
