Dancehall artistes Popcaan and Konshens pledge huge support for Bahamas hurricane recovery efforts.
The after-effects of Dorian are truly gut-wrenching, to say the least. The Bahamas is in a deeply desolate state, and many are wondering if it is even possible to reignite the drive of the people to pick up the pieces and rebuild this beautiful Caribbean island. Much like the events following the 4.3 magnitude earthquake that rocked Haiti in 2010, the humanitarian efforts are pouring in from all over. The Jamaican musical fraternity is also chiming in, with the likes of Konshens and Popcaan lending their platforms and voices to this noble cause.
Popcaan made a post on his Instagram of a direct message he received from a survivor in the Bahamas. The survivor begged, “If you can. Can you please use your platform to bring awareness to what we are going through in the Bahamas.” The unnamed individual further lamented that his family is battling 20Ft of water on a separate island.
The “We Pray” deejay sent his prayers and asked for protection from God for the people of Bahamas during this time.
Knowing that the people of the people need more than just prayers, Konshens took up the mantle to assist in the raising of funds through a GoFundMe account.
The Subkonshus deejay posted a video on his Instagram account showing some of the devastating images on the island. One of the most jaw-dropping clip is an aerial shot showing what Dorian did to the island. Konshens pleads to the masses, “If u can. Big or small, hit the LINK IN MY BIO as we at least start to try to help the people of the Bahamas in whatever way we can.”
He went on to further list the persons who set up the GoFundME account to ensure that the credibility is maintained. However, Konshens doesn’t stop there, as he is working to get money and source supplies to the benefit of the Bahamian people.
He ends the caption of his post asking us to embrace unity by supporting, “other individuals and companies that are planning to give aid.”
Konshens has come under heavy public backlash in recent weeks for his dress code. However, this act shows that he has a heart of gold and a deep humanitarian spirit.
As a Caribbean people, our actions are bigger than we may think. The Jamaican government has also mobilized the Disaster Assistance Response Team (DART). However, everyone can do their part and support our brothers and sisters in any way possible.
50 Cent’s Estranged Son Roasting Him Over His Other Son Tekashi 6ix9ine
Like father like son. 50 Cent’s oldest son is keeping their public beef going. Sound familiar?
50 Cent and his oldest son Marquise may have more in common than they think. Both of the men know how to double down on the petty and keep a public beef going — even if it’s with each other. Marquise Jackson, 21, and his dad, hip-hop veteran Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson have been at odds for quite some time, partially because of 50’s soured relationship with Marquise’s mother.
Marquise has made a name for himself by taking shots at Fif, and those shots continued Wednesday afternoon. He posted several photos of his dad on his Instagram story with multiple shady captions. “Nx**as will wish death on you. Disrespect ya moms in public. Claim this nxgga as ya son. The play victim,” he wrote. The “nx**a” he was referring to was Tekashi 69, who built a bond with 50 Cent before being sent to prison on racketeering charges. 50 said last week that the two rappers no longer communicate.
50 in the past has actually wished death upon his son, an ironic choice of words considering his hit song “Many Men.” Fifty said in the past that if Marquise were hit and killed by a truck, that his feelings would not be hurt. The Power producer also went as far as to say Marquise wasn’t even his kid and that he doesn’t claim him.
It’s safe to say that 50 Cent and his estranged son Marquise Jackson will not be making peace anytime soon. Fif already disowned his son Tekashi 6ix9ine for becoming a snitch.
But 50 does very much claim and take care of his younger son, Sire, that he shares with Daphne Joy. Over the weekend Daphne shared adorable photos of the family together that got shocking reactions from fans who aren’t so used to seeing 50 Cent’s softer side.
Ari Lennox Says She’s Only Doing Shows via Social Media & YouTube To Protect Her Energy
Ari Lennox is all about protecting her energy no matter what the cost.
Rising R&B star Ari Lennox has gained popularity through her clever use of social media, particularly her humorous Instagram live rants that fans often repost and share clips of via Twitter. And since that seems to be her safe space, Ari said that she may only do her live performances on Instagram from here on out because people are “playing with her energy.”
“After this year I’ll continue to drop music. But I’m not performing anymore outside of ig live or YouTube,” the Dreamville artist said Tuesday. “God is good. I will pay back what was offered to me but literally I’m too thorough to be playing with my energy. People don’t know what happens behind the scenes.”
Ari never quite elaborated on what exactly drove her to throw in the towel on shows and touring, but she continued her rant, that has since been deleted, saying that it was some immature drama going on that didn’t sit well with her. “But when I tell you this sh*t is high school and I will get expelled if I keep playing around like I’m not Aries,” she said. “I literally can create a world where I can keep the sick individuals away. This the only way. Stay in the house. Surrounding myself with family and my dog.”
The “Shea Butter Baby” singer said she was changing her number and “slowly retreating.” After a few more tweets alluding to “demonic entities,” Ari wrapped up her rant with some clarification on Wednesday. “The music industry can be shady but my messages have nothing to with the industry. It’s the random ho demons, narcissists and warlocks that shockingly appear at different events I be at.”
The 28 year old signed to J. Cole’s label went on to post photos of she and fellow R&B star H.E.R. from a performance at the Lights On Festival over the weekend. We sure hope that whatever was triggering the talented songstress was solved and that Ari will continue to showcase her vocals live.
Lights on Festival was absolutely phenomenal and I’m so thankful that I got to sing at such a cool soulful experience. HER is life ?? The people were amazing. pic.twitter.com/at8b4IWgsk

There are demons walking around disguised as genuine humans. Please do yourself a favor and watch who you give your sweet and genuine energy to.

Mary J. Blige Says Goodbye ‘Hot Girl Summer’ Hello ‘Bad B**ch Fall’ In NSFW Photo
Singer Mary J. Blige set Instagram on fire after posting a hot photo of herself bidding farewell to hot girl summer as she welcomes bad b**ch fall.
Even if you live under a rock, you still must have come across the phrase “Hot Girl Summer.” It was the biggest trend of this summer, and just about everyone and their mama was saying it. The phrase was coined by “Cash S**t” rapper Megan Thee Stallion, and it took off from there. The phrase was used to embody personal growth, and it encouraged women to be the best version of themselves. It personified letting go, and not having a care in the world. Living a hot girl summer meant you had no tolerance for pettiness and you didn’t settle what you didn’t deserve. Megan went on to release a track of the same name with Nicki Minaj and Ty Dolla $ign.
Since then many have attempted their hand at upgrading the phrase for the new season, including Meg who is set on Hot Nerd Fall. Singer Lizzo is also hell-bent on replacing it with Fat Girl Fall. Most notably, though is rapper 21 Savage who recently declared, “Hot girl summer is over it’s officially f**kboy fall.”
Today a new contender stepped into the ring as Mary J. Blige kicked off bad b**ch fall. The singer took to her Instagram page to share a photo of herself and let’s just say she looks freaking hot! The singer clad in a leopard-print swimsuit with a matching fur coat shows off her sexy curves. Even her long tresses match her outfit. The singer also rocks large hoop earrings with pink shades.
Instagram immediately sounded off about the jaw-dropping photo with fans in awe at how amazing the singer looks. Even the legendary Janet Jackson dropped a heart emoji in the comments. Actress Taraji P. Henson added, “WELL DAMN. I WASN’T READY,” followed by a plethora of fire, kisses, and heart-eyed emojis.
With such a bomb photo Mary has firmly positioned herself at the front of the line. She has most definitely secured her spot with bad b**ch fall.
