Last month Nigerian-American actor (best known for his role in POWER), singer & songwriter Rotimi pleased his fans by dropping a hot new island vibed single “Love Riddim” which was highly praised (including co-signs from Justin Beiber and Shaq). Today he delivers his seven-song EP Walk With Me under partnership with EMPIRE.
Money Man has been on a serious grind since he got out of his Cash Money deal and partnered with EMPIRE. The rapper’s been doing his thing independently, releasing freestyles, demos, new songs, mixtapes and more this past year. Today, he blesses fans with a new album, Paranoia. This project serves as Money Man’s official follow-up to 2018’s TraumaMan. His dense 25-track project includes features from Young Thug’s artist, Lil Gotit, FreeBandz Guap Tarantino, and 1017 Eskimo Yung Mal.
This week KXNG Crooked takes on week 20 new freestyle by hopping on the Lost Boyz “Renee” track with a slight twist added. Paying respects to Freaky Tah as well, whom the rap game lost over a decade ago in a tragic accident.
Yet Crooked has been on point with each week of phenomenal freestyles keeping hip hop truly alive. Check out the latest joint below

Nike just quietly released a brand new iteration of the iconic silhouette from 1987. Check out the Nike Air Max 1 Premium “Pure Platinum” that is available now.
There is no argument regarding the Air Max 1 and it’s influence and role that it has played on the sneaker industry. Now many years later after its debut, it is still as popular as ever. For this edition, the sneaker takes on one of the freshest colorways yet.
The upper consists of perfectly constructed suede and leather that provides durability and a great look. A light grey suede flows across the toe and midfoot that is brightened up by a white leather overlay that consists of a cutout Nike Swoosh for branding. Racer blue accents are then added in on the top lace hole that provides a pop of color. To finish the look a white midsole and a translucent Air Max bubble completes the design.
