Funny man Nick Cannon and friends took over the Blue Cross arena in Rochester, New York. He brought out some of our favorite personalities from MTV’s “Wildin Out” including Justina Valentine, Conceited, Emmanuel Hudson, Rip Michaels, and more. The beautiful “Wildin Out” girls were actually real residents of Rochester who auditioned for the roles the day before.
The cast spit hilarious bars, trash talked, and battled it out during segments like “Pick Up and Kill It and “Let me Holla” just to name a few. Of course Dj D- wreck had to “cut the beat” one good time also. Cannon let cast members get their shine on by giving a few their very own stand up comedy set.
The classic “Family Reunion “ skit brought everyday people on stage from the crowd for their 15 seconds fame . Rip Michaels let off some bars then really snatched a woman’s wig off before running through the venue with it .
Rapper Rich homie Quan was the musical act for the evening. Performing some of hits like Some Type of Way , Lifestyle, Flex, he got the crowd even more lit . The night ended with a dope confetti drop that covered the entire arena as it fell from the ceiling.
Be on the lookout for Nick Cannon & Friends coming to a city near you.

Dance rap heroes ZaeHD & CEO craft bass-boosted party anthems meant to make you lose your mind. Flashing the wild dance moves that made them viral stars, ZaeHD & CEO share "SMASH," their latest video. Filmed in Atlanta, the new video finds Zae & CEO mobbing with the whole HighDefGang, wielding Fortnite-branded NERF guns and syncing their expressive moves with the clattering bass. The video alternates between chaotic group shots and green-screened close-ups of Zae and CEO, as the effects take us underwater, to outer space, and back, with the two rappers looking like they're about to jump out of your screen into your living room. You'll have as much fun watching the video as it looks like they had making it.. With a preview clip that inspired an appreciative Instagram comment from Drake, "SMASH" is one of the highlights from HighDefGang Vol. 1, the first mixtape by ZaeHD & CEO. With a collage-like cover that shows a few of Zae and CEO's favorite things (popcorn, shrimp, aliens, and all things winter), HighDefGang Vol. 1 relies on the interplay between the two rhymers, as their hushed witticisms contrast with the overdriven bass in the beats. Produced in full by HD Gang's in-house producer Toosi, known for his producer tag "them hits don't make no sense," the new tape features the hit single "All In," which has 5.5 million views on its official video, nearly 2 million plays on its official dance video, 3.9 million plays on Spotify, and inspired a Verified video on Genius, as well as the hit follow-up "Robotics" (1.2 million video views, 1.98 million Spotify plays, and an appearance on Drake's Insta story). The most purely joyful and energetic rap release of the year so far, HighDefGang Vol. 1 is available everywhere for stream and purchase. We recently sat and spoke with the rap duo about their new music, new dances and more, listen to our exclusive interview!

Young Dolph is the quintessential example of independent success, using his business acumen to build a massive legion of friends without major assistance. Coming through with his first new single of 2019, Dolph shares "Crashin' Out." Combining street-level wisdom with extravagant boasts, "Crashin' Out" is classic Dolph: "Never signed a deal, but I got more guap than all-a y'all," Dolph intones at the beginning of the track's second verse. It's not bragging if you're speaking the truth--and Dolph only speaks facts. In the visual, Dolph takes his fleet of custom camo-wrapped luxury cars to Manhattan, pokes his head out the window of his Wraith as he cruises down avenues, and hits up Midtown's famous Halal Guys for late-night grub, all the while dripping in a fit that matches his cars right down to the rims. Following up a series of star-studded, high-concept videos, the Highsnobiety-premiered "Crashin' Out" brings Dolph back to his streetwise, guap-getting roots.
"Crashin' Out" follows the video for "By Mistake (Remix)," which features appearances from Memphis icons Juicy J and Project Pat. Earlier in the year, Dolph shared the sumptuous video for "I Think I Can Fly," inspired by the film Harlem Nights, which features an appearance from Snoop Dogg. Complete with spinning roulette wheels, acrobats in sparkling skin-suits, and comedic interludes, "I Think I Can Fly" is among the most extravagant and creative videos released in 2019. "I Think I Can Fly" and "By Mistake" are highlights from Role Model, Dolph's 2018 project.
Dolph is currently in the studio preparing his next album and shows no signs of letting up. He's becoming the king of hip hop he always knew he would always be.
