Pusha T Fan Lost His Prosthetic Leg At His Show, Push Responds: “We Gotta Find That”
Pusha T has been pretty busy lately. He was featured on Freddie Gibbs’ new project $oul $old $eperately with the song “Gold Rings.” He’s also working on a solo project, and recently announced which top-tier producers he’s collaborating with.
But all of this business hasn’t stopped Push from listening to his fans. On September 29, the Bronx rapper performed at The Pageant in St. Louis as part of his It’s Almost Dry tour, and one fan shared a surprising anecdote from the show.
On Twitter, user @endeylive wrote that he enjoyed the performance, but seemed to have misplaced something pretty valuable. “I lost my prosthetic leg at your stl show,” @endeylive wrote. “Still had fun tho.”
While it didn’t seem that the fan was too broken up about the lost leg, Push noticed the tweet and showed concern in his response. “We gotta find that man,” he wrote. “If you were at the STL show and know where my guy’s prosthetic leg is… pls hand it over.”
The fan maintained a good attitude about the predicament as other fans started to comment on the situation. “How son get home with no leg,” asked one user. “I hopped,” @endeylive wrote.
Meanwhile, Pusha is continuing on with his tour, which is onto its second half. He’s said that it’s been a great experience so far. “Watching the world react to ‘Brambleton’ has been surreal,” He told Complex. “It’s a very personal song, but people really honed in and really tuned in to that record. I know there’s not a Brambleton Avenue in every city all over the world, but they act like there is.”
OhGeesy Drops Menacing New Track “Knock Knock”
Los Angeles rapper OhGeesy has much to celebrate at the moment. He just wrapped up a successful tour and is still riding high off of his debut solo album, GEEZYWORLD, dropping last year. Even getting arrested for codeine and firearm possession couldn’t hurt his stride as he was going from show to show. Now, he’s dropped a new track “Knock Knock” to keep fans excited after his tour has ended.
“Knock Knock” follows Geesy’s previous 2022 single “Up,” as well as the release of GEEZYWORLD (Deluxe) back in February. In case you thought this might be the song where OhGeesy takes a new sonic direction, I got bad news for you. But that doesn’t matter with a working formula: hard-hitting West Coast percussion and bass, threatening piano lines, and a persistent sample of someone banging on a door. It wouldn’t sound out of place on any Shoreline Mafia tape, the L.A. rap collective Geesy helped found. Even if that Cali sound isn’t the trend of the moment, the 28-year-old is still carrying the torch for his city and keeping that sun-drenched bounce alive on playlists.
As far as the lyrical content, it’s a pretty straightforward showing from OhGeesy. It’s a murderous and boisterous track, and there’s nothing OhGeesy could say that hits harder than that knocking bass. The song also came with a shimmering music video, in which Geesy dons a mask and rides with his friends through the city nightlife.
You can check out OhGeesy’s latest track “Knock Knock” below.
It’s my world, you just live in it
And it’s my bag, so I’m spendin’ it
Ayy, he want a hundred packs then I’m sendin’ it
He a captain, save a h*e, he be defendin’ ’em
Megan Thee Stallion Kicks Off October With A Trip To Halloween Town: Photos
Is it Halloween yet?
The first of October is upon us already, which means spooky season lovers have just a few weeks to get their costumes in picture-perfect condition, and from the looks of her latest Instagram photos, Megan Thee Stallion is taking the holiday extra seriously this year.
On Saturday afternoon, the Houston-born rap diva dropped off a photo dump that begins with a snapshot of her casually chilling in her home, adorned in pretty pink pyjamas with a bright cocktail and a book in her hands. On her head, though, MTS sported a sinister-looking orange pumpkin, proving that she’s ready to get her Hottieween on.
Other snapshots see the 27-year-old answering her front door in her creepy costume, and she cleverly set the upload’s location as Halloween Town.
As Billboard notes, this isn’t the first time Thee Stallion pulled a stunt like this. On the same day last year, she donned a pumpkin head as well, this one haired with a long-sleeve crop top, leggings, and plenty of diamond jewelry.
It remains unclear exactly what the “Big Ole Freak” rapper is planning for her official costume this season, but it’s undeniable that it will be hard for her to top 2021’s sexy Hellraiser Pinhead look.
“Pain has a face. Allow me to show you. Gentleman, I am pain #hottieween,” she captioned her celebratory post at the time.
Aside from her upcoming Halloween antics, Thee Stallion has been having plenty of fun with her performance looks recently as well, dressing up like Sailor Moon in Japan, and a sultry milkmaid while in Germany – read more about that here, and tap back in with HNHH later for more pop culture news updates.
Lupe Fiasco Declares His Best Album
Lupe Fiasco is always willing to share his opinion. The Chicago rapper is gearing up for a tour honoring the fifteenth anniversary of The Cool, and in honor of the album, he discussed what he thought of it in a new interview.
The Cool, which just went platinum a couple days ago, is Fiasco’s highest-selling project, and he said that he believes that means it’s also his best. “Where would I rank it? It’s my number one selling record,” he said in an interview with HipHopDX. “I’ma start doing that, whatever sold the most is the best. That’s just easy, right? Who had album of the year? Whoever sold the most records. Cool? We’re done here. The Cool sold the most records, so that’s the number one record.”
Fiasco celebrated the platinum milestone on Twitter. “Just got the 1st Platinum Album of my career,” he wrote. “Always wanted one of these for the team. [Prayer hands] The Marathon Continues.”
He elaborated on the accomplishment with HipHopDX. “Hip hop puts a lot into sales and certifications, so to achieve this milestone is great,” Fiasco explained. “It’s one of the things I’ve always wanted– the only thing that I hadn’t achieved in rap or in hip hop.”
“As superficial as it may be, it means a lot [to go platinum], especially in this era,” he continued. “To be in a streaming era and still putting up 192,000 records— it’s sitting at 1.1 million— and a lot of that came from streaming, at least to push us over and push us over so hard, it speaks to something that we’re still relevant to move units in this era.”
In the end, that’s why it’s the best to Lupe: “Listen, I’m not bullshittin’. Number one. It’s number one.”
Twitter Clowns Nick Cannon Over Baby No. 10’s Name
Just weeks after welcoming his first child with model Bre Tiesi and another with LaNisha Cole, 41-year-old Nick Cannon was excited to share the news of his and Brittany Bell’s third child together‘s birth on Friday (September 30).
As is tradition whenever one of the women in the California native’s life welcomes a baby with him, social media is running rampant with those offering up their critiques of his parenting and life decisions.
Now that he’s a father of 10 (with more confirmed on the way), Cannon has gotten to be quite experienced at crafting names for his children, but Twitter users don’t seem to be impressed with the entertainer’s incredibly unique choices – particularly the moniker given to his youngest, Rise Messiah Cannon.
“Another Blessing!!! As my journey on this planet becomes more and more remarkable and unfathomable, all I can do is thank God and continue to ask the Most High to order my steps. He has given me stewardship and dominion over a family dynamic that to some is unimaginable,” The Masked Singer host wrote with his announcement yesterday.
Aside from Rise, Bell and Cannon are also parents to 5-year-old Golden Sagon and nearly 2-year-old Powerful Queen.
Children the recording artist shares with other women include Moroccan, Monroe, Zion, Zillion, Legendary, Onyx, as well as the late Zen, who passed away after a battle with brain cancer last year.
“What kind of Mad Libs generator are they using to come up with these names?” one Twitter user pondered. Another added, “It’s clear that in order to have a baby with Nick Cannon the women have to agree to let him name them all these hotep ass names.”

Do Taylor Swift And Drake Have A Song On The Way?
In a move that can only now be described as “Swift-ian,” Taylor Swift has been re-recording her first six albums. Her shrewd attempt to maneuver around the fact that Justin Bieber’s manager, Scooter Braun, bought all of her masters (without Swift’s knowledge) and then sold them to the highest bidders, has yielded two (Taylor’s Version) editions of albums in Red and Fearless. Now as Swift is getting to work on the Reputation (Taylor’s Version) recording, she has allegedly released a collaboration track with Drake and it’s especially juicy.
Do Taylor Swift And Drake Have A Song On The Way?
But Drake and Taylor Swift recording a song together? Could this be true? According to The Sun, Swift has dug into her vault of recordings as she prepares to release Reputation (Taylor’s Version) next year, following the release of Midnight this October 21st. One of the track’s from the vault, is reportedly a collaboration with Drake that was left off of Reputation, as Swift didn’t want to fuel the fire of her beef at the time with Kanye West and Kim Kardashian — following Kanye’s “I made that b*tch fmous” lyric. Drake and Kanye had a notoriously tepid relationship as well and this factored into the decision to hold off back then. But this new song could be on the way as The Sun quotes a “music insider” with direct knowledge of the situation:
“Taylor has pivoted her focus to re-recording Reputation and she has come across this song she made with Drake, which never saw the light of day. She knows that everyone is going to think it is about Kimye because it was her row with them which inspired a lot of Reputation. But this one is far more direct than the other songs, which was why they didn’t decide to release it in the first place. It’s no secret that both Taylor and Drake have had tumultuous relationships with Kanye, so they didn’t hold back when it came to recording. Obviously she is totally over the whole thing now but this is one which fans will want to hear.”
Time will tell if a collaboration song from Drake and Taylor Swift ever comes to fruition, but this seems like a pretty juicy one if it does drop.
