Kai Cenat FaceTimes A$AP Rocky On Twitch Stream

Kai Cenat FaceTimed A$AP Rocky after meeting up with fellow A$AP Mob member Illz. Cenat was live on his Twitch stream when he ran into A$AP Illz, which quickly turned into Cenat on the phone with Rocky. The New York City natives exchanged pleasantries, as they had never met to that point, before hanging up the phone.

Cenat has been on live stream with some of the most popular names in entertainment. He recently collaborated with Kevin Hart, which went viral for several moments over the several hours they spent together. He spoke with LeBron James on FaceTime on that stream as well. The two of them met in real life during Team USA’s practice in Las Vegas. Neither party has ruled out the possibility of James appearing on Cenat’s channel. Although, it will probably have to wait a while as Team USA is in France for the Olympics.

Kai Cenat has had another banner year as a titan of Twitch. He recently went viral for a stunt he and popular YouTube creator MrBeast pulled off. On the Fourth of July, a replica of Cenat’s room went up in flames after fellow YouTuber ImDavisss lit fireworks in it. The video went viral, but Cenat and MrBeast, real name James Donaldson, had to explain that they did not really burn down Cenat’s actual room. Cenat has also become a prominent Elden Ring player. His livestream of him playing the Shadow of the Erdtree DLC pack lasted 166 hours and reportedly netted him over $400 thousand.

After nearly six years without a new album, A$AP Rocky finally announced something new. Rocky is releasing Don’t Be Dumb, his fourth effort, on August 30. The rapper-turned-fashion mogul premiered tracks from the album at a fashion show in June. Earlier this year, Rocky was caught in the crossfire of the Kendrick Lamar and Drake battle thanks to his own longstanding issues with Drake. He will look to dispel any notions that his music is “mid” when his next full-length work arrives late next month.

Jonathan Majors Wants To Propose To Meagan Good

Jonathan Majors and Meagan Good have been dating since May 2023, when Majors went on trial for domestic abuse against his ex-girlfriend. The court convicted Majors of assault and harassment in April. He was sentenced to a yearlong domestic violence program. Since then, Majors has tried to get back into the good graces of fans and the greater public. Majors danced along to Kendrick Lamar’s “Not Like Us” at the after party for Good’s new movie. Fans memed the video heavily, but it showed that Majors and Good like being in each other’s company.

In fact, Majors likes being in Good’s company so much that he revealed plans to propose to her. TMZ caught up with Majors in West Hollywood on Tuesday afternoon and asked him the question. “Of course! Of course!” said Majors. He did not go into detail about how much they’ve spoken about marriage, or if they’ve even spoken about it at all. However, he confirmed that both families are in favor of them tying the knot.

Jonathan Majors Asked About Meagan Good Proposal

Meagan Good has enjoyed a career renaissance in recent years. She divorced from longtime husband DeVon Franklin in 2022 and recently starred in Tyler Perry’s new movie Divorce In The Black. While promoting the film, Good revealed that Perry was the first producer to pay her more than her previous acting opportunities did. Good also stars in the Amazon Prime Video series Harlem. The third season began filming in February, with the release expected for the end of 2024 or early 2025.

Jonathan Majors has attempted to revive his own career after being charged with assault. Disney moved on from him, dropping him from all future Marvel Cinematic Universe projects after his conviction. Fans reacted well to his performance as Kang The Conqueror in Loki. However, Kang is a character who exists across many universes in the greater Marvel world, so a decision to recast him could easily be explained away in his next on-screen appearance. The Hollywood Unlocked Impact Awards gave Majors the “Perseverance Award” last month. That decision was met with derision from fans. It seems that Majors and Good will get married someday, but when is uncertain.

Marvel’s ‘Deadpool & Wolverine’ Soundtrack Includes… Zendaya And Zac Efron?

Taylor Swift: not in Deadpool & Wolverine.

Zendaya: in Deadpool & Wolverine… kind of!

Marvel has released the “Van Jamz” tracklist for the soundtrack to the latest installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which includes songs from The Goo Goo Dolls, Aretha Franklin, and the wickedly talented John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John. I don’t know for sure if this is the first time those artists have all been on the same album together, but I’m guessing so.

Anyway, one of the soundtrack highlights is “The Greatest Show,” from 2017’s surprise box office hit The Greatest Showman. This means that a song from one Hugh Jackman movie is another Hugh Jackman movie, and that Zendaya and Zac Efron technically “appear” in Deadpool & Wolverine. Zendaya’s big year keeps getting even bigger.

You can see the tracklist below.

Deadpool & Wolverine Tracklist

1. “Only You (And You Alone)” by The Platters
2. “Bye Bye Bye” by *NSYNC
3. “Angel Of The Morning” by Merrilee Rush & The Turnabouts
4. “Slash” by Stray Kids
5. “Glamorous” by Fergie
6. “Iris” by The Goo Goo Dolls
7. “The Power Of Love” by Huey Lewis & The News
8. “I’m A Ramblin’ Man” by Waylon Jennings
9. “You Belong To Me” by Patsy Cline ft. The Jordanaires
10. “The Lady In Red” by Chris de Burgh
11. “I’m With You” by Avril Lavigne
12. “The Greatest Show” by Zac Efron, Zendaya, Hugh Jackman, Keala Settle, and The Greatest Showman Ensemble
13. “You’re The One That I Want” by Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta
14. “I’ll Be Seeing You” by Jimmy Durante
15. “Make Me Lose Control” by Eric Carmen
16. “You’re All I Need To Get By” by Aretha Franklin
17. “Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life)” by Green Day
18. “LFG (Theme From Deadpool & Wolverine)” by Rob Simonsen

The Deadpool & Wolverine soundtrack comes out on July 24, followed by the movie on July 26.

Netflix Reportedly Wants A Nine-Hour Documentary About Prince To Be Only (‘Only’) Six Hours

Prince, one of the fascinating, exciting, and eccentric musicians in American popular music history, is getting a documentary about his life and career. It’s just a matter of how long it’ll be.

Back in 2018, it was announced that Selma director Ava DuVernay was working on a documentary with Netflix about The Purple One. “The only way I know how to make this film is with love. And with great care,” she tweeted at the time. “I’m honored to do so and grateful for the opportunity entrusted to me by the estate.” DuVernay has since departed the project, but filmmaker Ezra Edelman, who made 2016’s Oscar-winning O.J.: Made in America, stepped in as director. He finished his cut of the film “a while back,” according to Puck, so what’s the hold up?

For one thing, Prince’s estate apparently isn’t thrilled by the documentary. “It’s unclear what exactly peeves them,” Puck reports, “but one source insists it’s not revelations of drug use or sexual stuff. Instead, the estate argues there are things in the film that are inaccurate.” Also, the current cut of the documentary is allegedly nine hours long, when Netflix requested it come in at six hours. Until a compromise is made, the film is being “held hostage.”

The Eagles documentary was four hours. The Prince documentary is somewhere between six and nine hours. At this rate, a Fleetwood Mac documentary will have to be 12 hours, and I will watch every second.

Will Smith Stepped Back Into ‘The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air’ Days As He Performed Its Theme Song At La Velada del Año IV

Now, this is a story all about how, Will Smith is extending his return to music. Last month, the Bad Boys: Ride Or Die star made his shocking return on stage at the BET Awards with the track “You Can Make It,” which featured Kirk Franklin.

Today (July 13), Smith keep things old-school during his set at La Velada del Año IV inside of Spain’s Santiago Bernabéu Stadium. Instead of performing his latest track, Smith treated the boxing fans to a mashup of The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air theme song and his 2005’s single “Switch.”

Although most new fans are more familiar with the series’ reboot, Bel Air, between 1990 and 1996, The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air dominated TV.

“Blessed are the ears of those who can hear Will Smith sing the intro to ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel Air’ live,” wrote one user (roughly translated to English).

“I love that he’s on stage again and just having fun. This is what legends deserve,” penned another.

Another pointed about how great of a selection Will Smith was, given the night was all about influencers hitting the ring.

“The ultimate influencer Will Smith was a good fit,” wrote one user.

Ironically, despite the record’s popularity, it wasn’t actually supposed to be released. In June 2022, during an interview WTOP, DJ Jazzy Jeff, Smith’s longtime friend, collaborator, and the song’s writer, made the confession.

“I thought we were making a filler,” he said. “I thought this would be a thing they would use until they figured out what the real theme song was. We did it, I mixed it, and that’s the same thing that plays on television today. That still trips me out. It never changed.”

Well, clearly, producers saw the same special quality listeners have clung onto for so man y decades to follow.

Kodak Black Drops Chilling Trailer For His First Film As Executive Producer

Kodak Black has certainly kept busy in recent months, and now, he can add yet another exciting endeavor to his long list of feats. Earlier this week, the Florida-born rapper took to Instagram to share a trailer for the upcoming film Gone Missin, which he executive produced. The supernatural horror flick is directed by Vincent Escobar for KTB Media and does not yet have an official release date. It centers around a woman who visits a small town in search of a missing person. Of course, she ends up discovering far more than she bargained for.

“We Present You ‘Gone Missin’ A supernatural Thriller! The first Show that my Film Company is releasing! I want to thank everyone in advance. Zoovies and Shows coming soon. Directed/Produced by @Wearethemoviemen,” Kodak captioned the trailer.

Kodak Black Teases Gone Missin

While this is the first time Kodak’s worked as an executive producer on a film, it’s not the only time he’s dabbled in the world of cinema. Last year, he appeared in The Don, a short film in which he plays a crime boss. It coincided with the release of his album Pistolz & Pearlz, which was unveiled on the same day. Movies aren’t the only thing keeping Kodak occupied these days either. He’s also been on a recovery journey as of late, embracing his new mostly sober self and looking back on how far he’s come.

During an Instagram Live last month, for example, he revealed that he’s taken some steps in the right direction and can now go several days without using any substances. He also recently shared that he regrets some of his lyrics about drug use. What do you think of Kodak Black executive producing a new film? Are you looking forward to seeing Gone Missin when it finally comes out? Share your thoughts in the comments section down below, and keep an eye on HNHH for more updates.

The Jay-Z And Kanye West Song In The Epic ‘Gladiator II’ Trailer Is Making People Go ‘Wild’

paul mescal gladiator

There’s a lot to love about the Gladiator II trailer.

Paul Mescal‘s muscles. Pedro Pascal in a fighting pit. Denzel Washington’s laugh. Director Ridley Scott still killing it at 86 years old. The Roman Colosseum being filled with water (!) and sharks (!!!). And — if you’re a normal person — the anachronistic use of “No Church In The Wild” by Jay-Z and Kanye West, ft. Frank Ocean and The-Dream.

Unfortunately, there are a lot of not-normal people out there, and they’re having a bit of a meltdown over the Watch The Throne single. There are many good reasons to object to Kanye; this is not one of them.

Here are some comments on the Gladiator II trailer on YouTube:

These are the same people who still think “rap? more like crap” is the peak of comedy (something tells me they didn’t have any issues with the Queen-heavy soundtrack to A Knight’s Tale). But instead of focusing on them, let’s turn our attention to what really matters: a great f*cking trailer.

Here’s more on Gladiator II:

Years after witnessing the death of the revered hero Maximus at the hands of his uncle, Lucius is forced to enter the Colosseum after his home is conquered by the tyrannical Emperors who now lead Rome with an iron fist. With rage in his heart and the future of the Empire at stake, Lucius must look to his past to find strength and honor to return the glory of Rome to its people.

Gladiator II comes out in theaters on November 22.

Childish Gambino Previewed Several Songs From The ‘Bando Stone And The New World’ Soundtrack, And Fans Are Losing It

During the 2024 BET Awards, Childish Gambino called out the organization for not acknowledging his creative prowess. Later in the show, viewers turned on him after participation in the Usher Lifetime Achievement Award tribute. Now, he is ready to make those naysayers ear their words by way of the Bando Stone And The New World soundtrack.

Yesterday (July 6), Gambino held a pop-up concert at Little Island NYC to treat fans to what he has up his musical sleeve. During the performance, Gambino was joined by Steve Lacy and Fousheé, who are both reportedly slated to appear on the album.

“Sounds like a heater,” wrote one user about the trio’s unreleased track.

“I’m obsessed with this sound omg 🥺💓,” penned another.

So far, Gambino dropped “Lithonia,” but rumblings online hinted that this track isn’t even the tip of the iceberg.

According to NFR Podcast, Uproxx cover star Chlöe, Yeat, Jorja Smith, Amaarae, Flo Milli, Kamasi Washington, and Gambino’s son just a few of the folks set to make an appearance on the project.

Again, at this point, nothing has been confirmed. But clips shared from attendees seem to confirm a few of the names listed above, including Jorja Smith and Amaarae (Gambino’s upcoming tour opener).

The soundtrack’s official release date hasn’t been shared. But in the comment section of the film’s trailer on YouTube, said it would be within July.

Questlove And Quinta Brunson Threw A Dream Game Night With Thundercat, Willow, Vince Staples, Weird Al, And Many, Many More

Questlove is an amazingly accomplished artist, with six Grammy Awards, an Academy Award, and a slew of books and movies to his name. Likewise, fellow Philadelphian multihyphenate Quinta Brunson has a ton of hardware adorning her shelf, with an Emmy Award to go alongside multiple(!) Peabody Awards.

You’d think that these would be pretty serious people, but everyone needs to unwind sometime — and, in their case, they equally overachieve with their game nights as with anything else, putting on a party of epic proportions with a guest list that reads like a dream blunt rotation.

In addition to fellow Abbott Elementary stars Ayo Edibiri (who plays Quinta’s character’s sister), Cree Summer, and Zack Fox (who plays Quinta’s character’s ex), the guests included music stars like Eryn Allen Kane, Finneas, Jason Sudeikis, Jojo, Kelly Rowland, LL Cool J, Maggie Rogers, Steve Lacy, Thundercat, Vince Staples, Willow, and even Weird Al Yankovic. I’d ask what a brother has to do to get an invite, but it seems pretty obvious: Get nominated for a Grammy or two, shift the paradigms of popular music, or be one of the most talented humans alive. You can check out some photos from the hosts below.

Donald Glover Shares Trailer For New Film, “Bando Stone & The New World”

Donald Glover shared a new trailer for an upcoming film titled, Bando Stone and The New World, on Sunday night. In addition to directing and starring in the project, Glover will also handle the soundtrack under his Childish Gambino pseudonym. He posted the trailer on X (formerly Twitter) and confirmed that the first single from the soundtrack, “Lithonia,” drops on Tuesday. It can be heard in the trailer for the film.

In the trailer, Glover plays the titular character, Bando Stone, as he attempts to make a delivery in a seemingly abandoned town. Eventually, he runs into two of the only people alive who warn him of the dangers of being outside at night. In response to Glover’s X post, fans are stoked for the project. “Donald…you genius!! This is the coolest thing I’ve ever seen omg,” one user responded. Another wrote: “we’re actually getting peak music omg.”

Prior to the announcement, both the song “Lithonia” and the IMAX trailer for the film leaked online. In response, Glover went on a rant about the situation on social media. “That’s another reason why y’all don’t get good sh*t. Like, it’s just for what? It’s like we don’t treat… It’s not valuable enough like it’s just a single… And I know who did it, Audiomack. F*ckin’, no soup for you, you’re not getting the album now. That’s what time I’m on,” he said.
