The A$AP Mob has reunited on wax—well, at least two of them have. There has been quite a buzz about A$AP Rocky in recent months following the announcement that he is expecting a baby with girlfriend Rihanna. The New York rapper has also been moving forward with lucrative business deals that are revealed from one week to the next, and now, he collides with A$AP Ant on a new track to remind people that he’s still a beast in the booth.
Today (March 31), the pair of A$AP partners shared the visual to “The God Hour” and in the clip, you’ll find them with their crew taking over the streets of the Big Apple. There are also some trippy, psychedelic elements to throw your brain for a loop so tune into that, as well. It’s rumored that this collaboration will land on Ant’s forthcoming project, so we’ll keep you updated on that as more information unfolds.

In an unexpected turn today (March 31), the internet sat back and watched blistering allegations against Taina Williams cast a shadow over the expectant mother. Williams is preparing to welcome her second child with G Herbo, but explosive allegations of abuse surfaced after the rapper’s ex, Ari Fletcher, revealed that their son Yosohn told her that Williams hurt him.
“Tell them how my son came home with a scar on him and saying what Taina did to him while you wasn’t home and even tho he told you out his own mouth what she did and he was crying and she didn’t help him and she’s mean to him and he don’t like her and the sh*t happened while you wasn’t home,” Fletcher wrote on Instagram in a message directed toward Herbo.
Taina came forward with a lengthy statement of her own, denying that she would hurt Yosohn and G Herbo added his take.
“If y’all believe I’ll let anybody on earth mistreat my son y’all ass stupid,” he wrote. Fletcher also took to Instagram Live to share a recording of Yosohn recounting what happened to him.
“I’ve allowed you to create false narratives about me in the past, but I will not let you create this narrative when it comes to a child that I have so much love for,” Williams wrote in her own post. “I’ve always had to hide my love for Yoshon out of respect for you and your wishes.” Check out highlights of the back and forth below, including G Herbo’s response.
It looks as if we’re all set to receive another project from NBA YoungBoy. If the internet is to be believed, YoungBoy recently shared a partial tracklist to an album that is rumored to be released in April. Although YoungBoy remains under house arrest in Utah as his legal team continues to fight his federal weapons charges, the rapper has once again proven that he is resourceful when it comes to creating music wherever her can.
YoungBoy remains one of the most popular artists in Rap today with each of his releases—singles or albums—climbing the charts to No. 1 positions. He has been applauded for his YouTube takeover as one of the platform’s most-viewed and top-ranked artists.
On Thursday (March 31), a photo showing a tracklist that is rumored to be YoungBoy’s last album with Atlantic Records popped up online. The viral image of The Last Slimeto, an album that DJ Akademiks previously tweeted about, shows that the project will be stacked with 30 songs, but only the final 11 were revealed. It is unclear if YoungBoy plans on having any features on this one, but his dedicated fanbase wouldn’t mind either way.
Meanwhile, YoungBoy and DaBaby’s Better Than You continues to be a point of controversy. The record caused mayhem in Hip Hop as artists began releasing diss tracks and social media insults, but it seems to have dissipated in recent weeks. Check out a portion of The Last Slimeto‘s tracklist below.

As soon as Polo G makes it down, he begins performing his song but within seconds, he seems to fall forward before a dozen or more people rush to his aid. People took to the internet to say that Polo G was attacked by someone in the audience who tried to snatch his chain, but the rapper refuted the claims.
“[And] Don’t start no dumb ass rumors like nobody tried take sum from me dead man’s one of y’all was lookin fa the crowd just gat too excited & knocked me down that’s all lol,” Polo wrote on Instagram “I mean I love Fort Wayne fa turnin up w me but that’s like one of the last places imma let a mf play wit me [crying emoji].”

A&E Network has announced they have greenlit a forthcoming documentary, Biography: Ol’ Dirty Bastard. The two-hour film will be the first official documentary about the Grammy-nominated musician and founding member of the Wu-Tang Clan.
ODB, who was born Russell Jones in Brooklyn, New York in 1968, developed a distinct identity and rhyme style that distinguished him apart from his peers. ODB had a huge influence on a whole generation of fans and performers during his brief 35-year life and long after his death. This culture-defining special humanizes ODB as a man, a father, and a husband like never before, thanks to exclusive access to a never-before-seen personal archive shot by his wife, Icelene Jones, and access to his closest friends and family.
Sam Pollard (MLK/FBI, Black Art: In The Absence of Light) and his son Jason Pollard (Get Me Roger Stone, Bitchin’ The Sound and Fury of Rick James) co-direct this comprehensive documentary, which provides an intimate portrait of ODB’s life and reflects on his lasting impact on music and culture.
The documentary, which will be produced by Pulse Films in collaboration with Four Screens and the Ol’ Dirty Bastard Estate, will focus on ODB’s solo career from his first record release in 1995 until his sad death from a heroin overdose in 2004. The film will blend this present tale with looks back at his trauma-filled youth to investigate how it shaped the man and artist he would become, charting his stratospheric rise and heartbreaking fall. The documentary, which is a celebration of his artistry and legacy, takes an unflinching look at the complexities of his life, including addiction, adultery, fame, mental illness, sudden wealth, race, and criminal justice, and will ask how complicit the media and music industry were in hastening his death.
“I am thrilled to tell the full story of my husband. With this documentary the world will learn about the son, the husband, the father, and the artist,” said Icelene Jones. “I’m proud of the team that we built, including Pulse, my producing partners Nicole Beckett and Messiah Jacobs at Four Screens, and our directing team, the Pollards.”
“A&E continues to be an industry leader in definitive documentary storytelling,” said Elaine Frontain Bryant, Executive Vice President and Head of Programming for A&E. “‘Biography: Ol’ Dirty Bastard’ will present viewers with the untold story of the man and the musician who made an immense cultural impact across just a few short years.”
Pulse Films and Four Screens are producing Biography: Ol’ Dirty Bastard for A&E Network. Sam Pollard and Jason Pollard will direct the film. Pulse Films’ executive producers are Sam Bridger and Diene Pettrle, while their producer is Louis Mole. Four Screens and the Ol’ Dirty Bastard Estate will be represented by executive producers Messiah Jacobs, Nicole Beckett, and Icelene Jones. Executive producers for A&E Network include Elaine Frontain Bryant and Brad Abramson. Biography: Ol’ Dirty Bastard is distributed worldwide by A+E Networks.
