The 6ix is on top! With the Raptors taking home their first championship, Drake delivered on his promise of new music in wake of bringing the Larry O’Brien Trophy north of the border. Drizzy released a two-pack EP on Friday night (June 14), which includes “Omertà” and the Rick Ross-assisted “Money in the Grave.”

“This is poetic. Kyle Lowry with the ring. Kawhi Leonard bringing a chip to the city. I want my chips with the dip, that’s all I know. That dynasty’s over,” Drizzy claimed to media outlets covering the monumental win at the Jurassic Park watch party taking place outside Scotiabank Arena.

The 6 God will also be releasing commemorative OVO-Raptors championship merchandise at some point coming up. Drizzy explained in a celebratory Instagram Live session that he’s also been tapped to help design the team’s championship rings.

Miley Cyrus apologizes for racially ‘insensitive’ comments about hip hop

Miley Cyrus spoke out for the first time since she was groped and forcibly kissed by a fan while in Spain. USA TODAYCONNECTTWEETLINKEDINCOMMENTEMAILMORE

Miley Cyrus is making amends for controversial comments she previously made about her experiences making hip hop-influenced music.

After releasing her 2013 “Bangerz” album, featuring production from rap producer Mike Will Made It, Cyrus went on to criticize the genre in a 2017 interview, claiming rappers’ lyrics were too lewd and saying, “I can’t listen to that anymore. That’s what pushed me out of the hip-hop scene a little.”

Cyrus has seemingly realized the bad optics of that statement, apologizing in the comment section of a YouTube video by user As Told By Kenya. Titled “Miley Cyrus Is My Problematic Fav…Sorry,” the video is largely complimentary while casting Cyrus’ hip hop comments as an unfortunate moment in her career, with YouTuber Kenya Wilson saying about the interview, “It wasn’t the right thing to say, it was bad, it was

racially insensitive, it had racist undertones and it wasn’t OK, point blank, period.

Several weeks after the video was posted on May 31, Cyrus left a comment from her official YouTube profile on Tuesday.

“Just watched your video,” she wrote. “Thank you for giving me this opportunity to speak up. Being silent is not like me at all. I am aware of my platform and have always used it the best way I know how and to shine a light on injustice. I want to start with saying I am sorry. I own the fact that saying … “this pushed me out of the hip hop scene a little” was insensitive as it is a privilege to have the ability to dip in and out of ‘the scene.’

“There are decades of inequality that I am aware of, but still have alot (sic) learn about,” she continued. “Silence is apart of the problem and I refuse to be quiet anymore. My words became a divider in a time where togetherness and unity is crucial. I can not change what I said at that time, but I can say I am deeply sorry for the disconnect my words caused. Simply said; I (expletive) up and I sincerely apologize . I’m committed to using my voice for healing, change, and standing up for what’s right. Miley”

(Warning: Explicit language)

Cyrus has been vocal in recent weeks, slamming a critical review of her new EP “She is Coming” before speaking out about a scary incident in which she was forcibly groped by a stranger in Barcelona, saying women “CAN’T be grabbed without her consent” accompanied by the hashtag “#Dont(Expletive)WithMyFreedom.”

Jennifer Lopez duets with daughter to launch birthday tour

Jennifer Lopez has gushed with pride online after sharing a duet with her daughter in Los Angeles as she kicked off her 50th birthday tour.

The superstar launched her It’s My Party: The Live Celebration trek in Los Angeles on Friday night (07Jun19), and introduced fans to a very special guest – her 11-year-old girl, Emme.

Wearing matching red dresses, mother and daughter teamed up for a performance of Limitless, a track from her recent movie Second Act, at The Forum, as Emme, who showed off her dance skills in the song’s video, displayed her impressive vocal talents onstage.

After the gig, J.Lo shared a clip of the touching moment on her Instagram page, and captioned it, “I can’t take it!”

She also added the hashtag, “#ProudMama”.

A number of her celebrity followers were quick to heap praise on young Emme, with Reese Witherspoon commenting, “What a voice!”

Lopez’s former World of Dance host Jenna Dewan remarked, “Ohhhhhhh my goodness (sic),” as her Second Act co-star Vanessa Hudgens posted, “Omg (oh, my God) ammmmmmmmmmmmazzzzinggg (sic)”.

“Absolutely amazing,” added dance DJ Steve Aoki.

J.Lo had previously been considering giving Emme her own moment in the spotlight on tour after hearing her daughter belt out a pitch-perfect rendition of Alicia Keys’ If I Ain’t Got You last month (May19).

The kid’s dad, fellow entertainer Marc Anthony, also recently revealed he would be fully supportive of the pre-teen, who has a twin brother named Max, if she decided to follow her parents into the music industry.

“Music was a big part of my life growing up and I hope it does the same for (Emme) as it has done for me,” he told iHeartRadio. “And if that is what she wants to do… well, she should do it because she likes it, not because she has to. Not for fame, or popularity, or for likes.”

“I asked Emme, ‘Why do you sing?’ And she said because she feels good… It’s the best response,” he added.

Lopez, who will mark the age milestone in late July (19), will continue her It’s My Party: The Live Celebration shows in San Diego, California on Monday night.

David Ortiz, former Red Sox slugger, wounded in Dominican Republic bar shooting

Former Boston Red Sox star David Ortiz shot in the Dominican Republic

Ortiz shot in the back at close range but recovering. The suspect has been taken into custody.

Former Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz was hospitalized Monday after being wounded in an ambush at a Dominican Republic bar, authorities said.

Ortiz was at the Dial Bar and Lounge in Santo Domingo on Sunday night when a gunman approached from behind and shot him at close range, Dominican National Police Director Bautista Almonte said.


Police said Ortiz was taken to a hospital where he underwent surgery and was in stable condition.

Leo Ortiz, the 10-time All-Star’s father, told reporters his son was out of danger and there was no damage to his major organs. He said he has no idea why someone would shoot his son.

“He is out of surgery and stable; he is resting,” Leo Ortiz said. “Big Papi will be around for a long time.”

According to TMZ Sports, Ortiz told doctors: “Please don’t let me die. I’m a good man.”


The Red Sox released a statement on Ortiz, saying they offered his family “all available resources to aid in his recovery” and they will continue to keep them in their hearts.

The alleged gunman was captured and beaten by a crowd of people at the bar, Bautista said. He said police are waiting until the man undergoes treatment for the injuries he suffered at the hands of the crowd before questioning him. The man’s identity wasn’t released.

Investigators were still trying to determine whether Ortiz was the intended target. Two other people were wounded in the shooting, including TV host Jhoel Lopez. Ortiz and Lopez were wounded by the same bullet, authorities said.

Lopez suffered non-life threatening injuries. The third person wasn’t identified and their condition wasn’t released.

Ortiz, a three-time World Series champion, retired in 2016. He now works for the Red Sox in a variety of capacities.

He hit 541 home runs over his 20-year career. He also played for the Minnesota Twins.

She told the magazine: “It’s the thing that keeps me asking: So how much is this gonna cost at retail? How can we bring the price down without compromising on quality?”So will she slow down now or is the plan to continue to work, work, work, work, work, work?She told the magazine: “I never thought I’d make this much money, so a number is not going to stop me from working. I’m not being driven by money right now. Money is happening along the way, but I’m working out of what I love to do, what I’m passionate about. Work will change when my life changes in the future but an amount of money is not going to stop that.”

iTunes’ Death Is All About How We Listen To Music Today

Apple CEO Tim Cook delivers the keynote address at the 2019 Apple Worldwide Developers Conference in San Jose, Calif., on Monday. The company announced that it’s breaking up the iTunes application into three apps handling music, podcasts and TV.Justin Sullivan/Getty Images

After 18 years, Apple is killing iTunes — well, sort of. The media management software for most Mac users (and many Windows users) is being broken into separate pieces for separate uses: Music, podcasts and television will soon have their own apps on the new Catalina Mac operating system.

Apple announced the move on Monday along with new hardware, including a new Mac Pro and Pro Display XDR, and entertainment and lifestyle features.

But the company’s presentation, at its developers conference in San Jose, Calif., offered a lot of suspense around iTunes. “Tell me about iTunes or leave me alone while I feverishly try to back up my library lmao,” tweeted one user.

Apple laid to rest a misapprehension that the iTunes Store (where users purchase songs and albums for download) would be going away in favor of Apple Music (the company’s streaming service). The iTunes Store will remain, as will the music that people bought from it. But Apple did address a long-running complaint from users of the iTunes desktop app: mainly, that it’s trying to be too many things at once.Article continues after sponsor message

Apple Debuts Streaming Video, Payment Card And News Subscription Services

At Monday’s conference, Craig Federighi, Apple’s senior vice president of software engineering, joked about this. “Customers love iTunes and everything it can do,” he said, before sarcastically asking: “But if there’s one thing we hear over and over, it’s ‘Can iTunes do even more?’ “

Apple announced it will be launching a new stand-alone music app for Mac, as well as a new and improved TV app and a podcast app. And it said device syncing will now be handled in the Finder, the macOS file manager. Apple did not say how syncing iPhones or iPads would be handled on Windows machines.

Are We Witnessing The Beginning Of The End For Free Music Streaming?

iTunes will continue as a music store, but the new music app will be more closely aligned with Apple’s music-streaming service.

Apple has seen a decline in iPhone sales due to a confluence of factors, including fewer buyers in China and an extended upgrade cycle. The company has been rebranding itself as a streaming-entertainment provider.

And it has made no secret of looking to grow its services businesses, including the Apple Music streaming service, a forthcoming TV-streaming service and a magazine subscription service.

So is owning music becoming a thing of the past?

How Streaming Is Changing Music

Streaming made up 75% of the music industry’s revenue last year. It’s so lucrative that music streaming is where one of the fiercest battles against Apple’s alleged monopoly is being waged. In March, Spotify announced it had filed an antitrust complaint against Apple with the European Commission. Spotify says the 30% commission on all App Store purchases is unfair because it forces Spotify users to pay more.

These accusations aren’t just happening in Europe. In the U.S., the Supreme Court recently ruled that a class action lawsuit accusing Apple of operating an App Store monopoly can proceed.

Drake Trolls Golden State Warriors by Wearing Dell Curry Raptors Jersey at NBA Finals Game 1

Jesse D. Garrabrant/NBAE via Getty ImagesDrake photographed during a game between the Milwaukee Bucks and the Toronto Raptors during Game Four of the Eastern Conference Finals of the 2019 NBA Playoffs on May 19, 2019 in Toronto.

Drake is doing some major trolling at this year’s NBA finals.

The rap superstar and Toronto Raptors superfan strolled into the opening game between the Golden State Warriors and Raptors Thursday (May 30) sporting an autographed Dell Curry jersey. For the uninitiated, Dell Curry formerly played for the Raptors — and he also happens to be the father of Warriors star Steph Curry.

Drake’s hilarious trolling effort was captured in a photo by a fan and shared on social media. In the photo, Drake is seen standing near ESPN’s First Take co-host Stephen A. Smith, who seems to looking directly at the rapper with an open mouth.  

Drake attends Game Two of the Eastern Conference Semifinals between the Philadelphia 76ers and the Toronto Raptors during the 2019 NBA Playoffs on April 29, 2019 at Scotiabank Arena in Toronto.


Radio Stations Ban Drake and Steve Miller Band During NBA’s Raptors-Bucks Series

Drake has been on the sidelines supporting the Raptors during their rise to the finals. He recently dominated conversation across sports talk shows with his sideline antics during Toronto’s home games in their Eastern Conference Finals playoff series against the Milwaukee Bucks. The rapper taunted the Milwaukee Bucks players, hyped up the Scotiabank Arena, and even gave Raptors head coach Nick Nurse a quick massage.

The Raptors take on the Warriors tonight in Toronto, and play again at home on June 2.

Nick Cannon Denies That He’s Afraid To Move Forward With Dr. Sebi Doc

An article stated that the Dr. Sebi documentary is what got Nipsey killed.

Following Nipsey Hussle‘s death, there were reports that the slain rapper made plans to produce a documentary centered around Dr. Sebi, the man who many claimed cured AIDS. During an interview with The Breakfast Club morning radio show, Nipsey said, “I’m working on doing a documentary on the trial in 1985 when Dr. Sebi went to trial against New York because he put in the newspaper that he cured AIDS. He beat the case and he went to federal court the next day and beat that case, on record, and nobody talks about it.”

Nick Cannon vowed to continue Nipsey’s work and wrote in an Instagram caption, “Where you left off, we gonna carry one. It’s a MARATHON, so I’m picking up the baton! Because they can’t kill us all! Spiritual Warfare is REAL and in full effect. And now your Spirit is protecting your community eternally! Your words, your steps, your walk always was and always will be SOLID! Now, Your message is my message! Your work is my work!”

However, the website Hip Hop Overload recently published an article claiming that Cannon axed the documentary because of death threats. “People close to Nick say’s that Nick feels Nipsey’s hunger to release the Sebi movie is what had him killed,” they wrote. “This is truly sad because the Dr. Sebi movie was definitely needed.” Cannon shared a screenshot of that article to his Instagram and denied he was pulling the plug on production.

“Oh ‘They’ wish this was the truth!!” Cannon wrote. “Who made this dumb sh*t?! LOL #Fearless”
