Drake’s Lollapalooza Argentina Set Cut Short, Fans Upset

The 6 God might be going on a massive tour soon, but if his latest sets are anything to go by, fans might be disappointed. Drake caught a lot of heat on social media for cutting his Lollapalooza Argentina set short and falling prey to a few other logistical issues. Fans claim that his performance was only about 40 minutes long, which differs from the typical hour and a half that a headliner would enjoy. Not only that, but the Canadian star allegedly barred his performance from being live-streamed just minutes before he arrived late to his show.

Moreover, this news is all the more concerning for Drake fans in the States, because it potentially indicates how his upcoming U.S. shows with 21 Savage will be. People are already outraged at the insanely inflated ticket prices for these shows. In fact, they added additional dates to accommodate demand, bringing the date count from 29 to 43. Still, it hasn’t made $1,000+ tickets any easier to swallow. However, despite all the outrage and disappointment with Drizzy’s Lolla Argentina performance, many of these factors aren’t necessarily his fault.

Drake Cuts Lollapalooza Argentina Short

Translation: “Drake’s show should’ve lasted an hour and 30 minutes in Lollapalooza Argentina, but the artist unexpectedly ended it early. In total, he played for less than an hour.”

Given the sheer size and scope of the festival, it’s natural that maybe there were some behind the scenes issues that we don’t know about that Drake had to handle in the moment. What’s curious is that it looks like event organizers were also blindsided by Drake’s decision to not allow a set livestream. Furthermore, they replaced footage of his performance on their stream with a message for fans. “Drake decided, minutes before going on stage, to not permit the live transmission of his show, despite the formal agreement reached earlier,” the message read. “We regret the artist’s decision.”

Meanwhile, Drake also performed at Lollapalooza Chile this weekend, which seems to have gone by without much of a hiccup. At least on Twitter, though, people are also complaining about a short set time. However, many people appreciated the set list itself, with many hits across his catalog, but that seems like a given for Drake. One can only wonder as to why he dismissed his sets this time around. Hopefully he’ll give a longer set at Lollapalooza Brasil next weekend. Check out reactions to his Lollapalooza Argentina set below and return to HNHH for the latest on Drake.

Fans Respond In Outrage

“Drake leaving Argentina without allowing his show to stream on TV and having sung half an hour less at Lollapalooza”


Chloe Bailey Clarifies Video Of Fans Throwing Things At Her On Stage

Chloe Bailey has responded to the viral clip of fans throwing objects at her on stage, explaining that they weren’t intending to do so maliciously. Commenting on a post of the video by The Shade Room, Bailey explained that “not everything is negative.”

“Wayment! Not people throwing things at #ChloeBailey while she was performing. Sis was definitely dodging ’em though!” The Shade Room wrote in the post’s caption. Bailey then commented: “lol the kids were trying to give me their light up wrist bands. they weren’t throwing things at me to be mean. it was a great show. not everything is negative.”

Bailey is currently on the road for her first headlining tour in the U.S. She announced the shows, last month. “I’m headlining my very own solo tour performing all the songs from the new album,” she wrote at the time. “Y’all I’m so excited. See you there.” The announcement came ahead of the release of her highly-anticipated debut studio album, In Pieces, which will be out later this month.

The latest online drama is far from the only controversy Chloe Bailey’s dealt with as of late. Many users on social media criticized the young singer in February when she collaborated with Chris Brown. The two worked together on Bailey’s new track titled “How Does It Feel.” Perhaps the most vocal among the critics was Cheetah Girls singer Kiely Williams. “Let him come out with his own record – so genius so captivating that it makes us all forget HE BEATS WOMEN. He can’t so we won’t. So what does he do?” Williams wrote on Twitter at the time. “He slowly creeps back into the mainstream by getting small nods for features on Black Women’s merit. Black women who are more talented, more worthy, but give him the okay.” Chris Brown later exchanged shots with Williams online.

A$AP Rocky Toasts Rihanna After Oscars Performance

A$AP Rocky honored Rihanna with a toast following her incredible Oscars performance. Moreover, she performed her Black Panther: Wakanda Forever track “Lift Me Up” on Sunday’s (March 12) 95th Academy Awards in Hollywood. Not only did she proudly show off a bit of her baby bump, but her emotional performance received a standing ovation from the crowd. The song is a eulogy, dedication, and tribute to the late great Chadwick Boseman, who played the groundbreaking superhero in the first film. Following her performance, the camera showed Rocky cheering and pumping his fist for his girlfriend before raising his glass and giving a loving smile.

Of course, it wouldn’t be the first time that the star couple made headlines for their supportive performances. In February, Rihanna gave her long-awaited performance at the Super Bowl Halftime Show, which left fans stunned and in shock due to the reveal of a second pregnancy. While the New York MC supported her from the ground and danced along to the occasion, fans watching from everywhere expressed shock and awe on social media.

A$AP Rocky Toasts The Excellent Oscars Performance

Meanwhile, the “Diamonds” singer recently reflected on motherhood during a photoshoot with her boo and son. “Oh, my God, it’s legendary,” RiRi told British Vogue about being a first-time mom. “It’s everything. You really don’t remember life before, that’s the craziest thing ever. You literally try to remember it- and there are photos of my life before. But the feeling, the desires, the things that you enjoy, everything, you just don’t identify with it because you don’t even allow yourself mentally to get that far, because it doesn’t matter.

“You walk into the hospital as a couple and leave as a family of three,” she continued. “It’s nuts. And oh, my gosh, those first days are insane. You don’t sleep. At all. Not even if you wanted to. We came home, cold turkey, had no one. It was just us as parents and our baby. Man, you’re a zombie for the most part.” Regardless, check out her full performance down below and return to HNHH for the latest updates on A$AP Rocky and Rihanna.

Jordin Sparks Gets Clowned By Social Media For National Anthem Performance

Twitter’s just never going to be a very nice place, is it? Jordin Sparks recently got clowned on social media for her performance of the national anthem at the Big 12 Championship game. Moreover, many people compared it to Fergie’s infamous national anthem performance during an NBA All-Star Game. However, many also said that Sparks’ rendition wasn’t that bad, as Fergie’s spread like legitimate wildfire online. Still, whether you have an opinion on that, it’s always a bit sad to see so much hate thrown on social media sites for performances like these.

Still, people are entitled to their take, and it probably says something significant if a lot of people did not like your performance. With all that said, it’s not like Sparks is constantly in the public limelight, so hopefully she’s not getting an absurd amount of haters down her throat. In fact, her most recent big story before this performance was that Chris Brown’s abuse of Rihanna caused their collab “No Air” to get snubbed at the Grammys. Given how Brown’s career’s progressed since then, maybe it was best for Sparks to get a little distance.

Jordin Sparks Clowned For National Anthem

“Honestly, I think that shouldn’t even be a conversation anymore,” she remarked, defending his history of violence. “It’s about his talent, and they just shouldn’t have canceled the performance. That’s how I feel about it. People deserve to be able to grow and learn. Be able to live their life without things hanging over them. Everybody deserves that.” While her comments obviously didn’t land with people in the most positive way, she does make a point about growth. It’s all about how people move forward from those things, or how they stick by old ways.

Regardless of all that, people still laughed off her rendition of the national anthem. While the singer keeps dropping music on a relatively low-key level, perhaps people remember this instance a little more. Hopefully, the 33-year-old’s fans remind the haters of some of her classics. Still, check out reactions above and stay logged into HNHH for the latest news and updates on Jordin Sparks.

Lil Uzi Vert Shouts Out Playboi Carti, Rocks Colored Contacts & Spiky Hair At Rolling Loud L.A.

Lil Uzi Vert just shouted out Playboi Carti in a teased track performed during their Rolling Loud L.A. set with a new look, which could appear on the rapper’s upcoming Pink Tape. Moreover, Uzi opened their set with plenty of new material, donning spiky hair and colored contacts rendering them bright brown on one eye and crystal blue on the other. In the track, they rap “Shout out to Carti, we don’t talk hardly, but that’s where my heart be.” While he wasn’t the only artist Uzi referenced in their new material, it caught the ears of many due to their storied history.

Moreover, Uzi and Carti are somewhat of artistic kindred spirits, working in similar genres around similar times. Of course, since their careers started, both rappers took things in different stylistic directions. However, collabs of theirs like “wokeuplikethis*” and “Shoota” are still beloved rap classics. Their road as friends was rocky to be sure, but they moved on despite apparently not communicating often. Also, many reacted strongly to both this tease and to Uzi’s overall look, which just continues to cement his ability to make stories out of eccentric fits and styles.

Lil Uzi Vert’s New Look At Rolling Loud

What’s more is that Carti previewed new music of his own during the California festival as well. Still, Pink Tape‘s been teas by Uzi time and time again. However, they at least gave fans the RED & WHITE EP last year to hold them over in the meantime. In fact, Uzi reportedly has over 700 songs recorded for the project. Generation Now’s Don Cannon praised their work ethic and said the album will feature no guest appearances.

I do make y’all wait a long time for music and I’m so sorry,” Uzi said during their set. “I thought that s**t was cool before but that shit is lame,” he admitted. “I’m putting the final touches on Pink Tape and I promise. I made a lot of promises in my life, but this time I promise.” Check out reactions to the set below and return to HNHH for updates on Lil Uzi Vert and Playboi Carti.

Blueface Claims Police Barred Him From Rolling Loud LA Performance

Blueface took to Twitter to claim police stopped him from performing at Rolling Loud LA this weekend. Moreover, the festival canceled his set prior to his scheduled time for no apparent reason, and he didn’t show up to perform. After the California rapper posted the update to his Twitter feed, he also announced a show in Pomona, California on March 16th. While it’s unclear whether this was scheduled beforehand or in response to his set’s cancellation, it certainly lined up time wise. Still, not much else is known about this situation, so take Blue’s words with a grain of salt.

“Sorry rolling loud they hit my bus police ain’t let us in,” he tweeted Saturday (March 4). Also, after that tweet, he also gave some interesting information on his Cardi B collab for the “Thotiana” remix. “When I got that cardi feature, I never spoke with her prior to the studio session or recording of the music video. Everything was done from management to management to ensure professional business. No money was exchanged for anything because it made cents for everyone no leverage.”

Blueface Claims Police Stopped Him From Performing At Rolling Loud

“That feature changed my life fasho that’s the only way we doing business in 2023,” he concluded. Furthermore, his set wasn’t the only one that faced difficulties at this year’s West Coast premier rap festival. For example, Playboi Carti faced an emergency at his show and was almost cut off multiple times. In addition, Travis Scott’s set was inexplicably cut short as he performed “SICKO MODE.” Of course, these delays and scheduling changes are normal for such large-scale festivals, especially ones as wild as Rolling Loud.

Meanwhile, the “Bleed It” rapper and his girlfriend Chrisean Rock recently appeared on Mike Tyson’s Hotboxin’ podcast. Moreover, the boxing legend asked the couple if fighting is how they show their love to one another. Blue said that he only fights when he has to, while Rock said he “plays nice and then he switch.” Even though news surrounding the couple seems unavoidable online, maybe talking about their relationship in more open dialogues will result in a change in what many perceive as a toxic dynamic. Regardless, stick around on HNHH for updates on this story and the latest on Blueface.


Lil Baby Performs At Kids’ Choice Awards, Fans React & Call It Inappropriate

Lil Baby just performed at the 2023 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards, and many fans believe that it was an inappropriate appearance. Moreover, he rapped the cut “California Breeze” off his latest album, 2022’s It’s Only Me. While he gave a cleaned-up rendition of the track, many still pointed to the track’s sexually explicit lyrical content. Of course, conversations like these surrounding kids’ proximity to genres like hip-hop are nothing new. Still, it was quite bizarre to see the Atlanta MC try to turn up some 11-year-olds.

Furthermore, Twitter had a field day reacting to the sight and cracking some jokes about it. “Lil Baby performing at a kids choice awards is like Yo Gotti performing at a back to school tour,” one fan remarked. Another wrote, “Y’all worried about Lil Baby Performing at the Kids choice awards but your kids know every word to Glorilla songs and s**t and they are twerking. Ijs like the selective outrage ain’t none of this music kid appropriate now a days let’s be honest!” That “selective outrage” reference is likely from Chris Rock’s latest comedy special, which itself drew some fire online.

“California Breeze” Takes Kids’ Choice Awards By Storm

However, any complaints from online adults don’t concern kids loving the performance onstage. After all, a lot of the show’s target audience isn’t quite at the impressionable teen age that these lyrics could more confidently affect. As such, they were just happy to dance along to the song and not really care about (or fully understand) what Baby was saying. Also, the 28-year-old probably got the gig in the first place because he has young kids of his own. What’s more is that eight-year-old Jason and four-year-old Loyal also attended the awards ceremony alongside their dad.

Meanwhile, Baby’s latest headline appearances stemmed from topics that would’ve torn the Kids’ Choice stage apart. Moreover, Blueface and Chrisean Rock fought recently over Baby contacting Chrisean. Since then, the California rapper adamantly claimed that him, as well as other rappers like Rick Ross, want to get with her. Overall, it’s quite hilarious but also enlightening to see just how many lanes the “Freestyle” artist finds himself in. Regardless, log back into HNHH for the latest news and updates on Lil Baby and check out more reactions down below.

Playboi Carti Unveils New Music At Rolling Loud

Playboi Carti just gifted fans with a performance of new and unreleased music during his Rolling Loud LA set. Moreover, the teased track sounds quite similar to the undeniably influential sound of Whole Lotta Red. For example, his screams are still ear-piercing, the instrumental sounds distorted and heavy, and the additional guitars gave it that rockstar feel. As he played the song and screamed along, his stage goons ran across the stage to hype the audience up. For those of you waiting patiently for new music from the Atlanta rapper, maybe this performance hints at an upcoming drop.

However, it’s not a good time to be a fan of Playboi Carti. Recently, a lot of conversation around the 26-year-old surrounded his December arrest for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend over a pregnancy test. While he hasn’t addressed these accusations, his ex-girlfriend and mother of his child Iggy Azalea spoke out against his behavior. With that in mind, Carti’s history of legal troubles and violence is coming to light in a damning way, especially considering that he’s not really online all that much to update fans himself or talk about these situations.

Playboi Carti Previews New Music At Rolling Loud

Meanwhile, other members of his Opium label camp faced accusations of wrongdoing recently as well. One example is the duo Homixide Gang, who faced accusations of grooming on social media. Still, these rumors did not manifest into a police report, arrest, or other official confirmation like Carti did. Those rumors remained online, but many passionate fans put the pieces together from various testimonies and concurrencies. Such revelations are unfortunate considering their musical impact, and how their aggressive sound could implicitly provoke or hint at these actions. However, that’s a wide brush to paint artists with, and a cult fanbase as vocal as Opium’s shouldn’t jump to conclusions with no concrete basis.

Also, rumors spread on social media that a potentially fatal incident occurred during Carti’s Rolling Loud LA show. After the show stopped, many pointed to leaked audio and on-the-ground testimonies that someone was potentially killed as a result of an insanely dangerous crowd environment. However, these reports are still hearsay as of writing this article, with some sources saying that a victim received medical treatment and recovered. Regardless, check out the new song above if you’re interested and, if you’re going to a Carti show, please be careful and mindful of others, as his shows and mosh pits can get notoriously scary quickly. Also, as always, come back to HNHH for the latest news and updates on Playboi Carti.

Soulja Boy Performs At Rolling Loud To Seemingly Low Energy Crowd, Twitter Reacts

Soulja Boy recently performed at Rolling Loud Los Angeles, and people say the crowd was pretty dead. Moreover, a particular clip went around social media of Soulja performing his track “Rick & Morty,” a viral offering. However, in the recording, you can’t really hear the crowd screaming lyrics back at him or engaging with the performance. As one Twitter user posted, “there is not a single phone in sight for [Soulja Boy].” Still, some people pointed out in comments and reply sections that, in some recordings for concerts, they mute the crowd mics while the artist is performing.

Furthermore, that’s exactly what’s heard in the clip at the very end, where the rap pioneer instructs the crowd to “make some motherf***in’ noise, man.” Regardless of whether people actually got hyped up to the performance, it’s fair to say that he’s more known for his influence than his present contributions these days. In fact, saying the Atlanta-bred artist was the first to do “x” rap achievement is basically a meme at this point. As such, people seemed much more excited during renditions of classics like “All The Way Turnt Up” by Roscoe Dash featuring Soulja.

Soulja Boy Performs At Rolling Loud

Meanwhile, the “Crank Dat” artist recently made headlines for things curiously outside his wheelhouse or own career. For example, he expressed support for Megan Thee Stallion following her victorious case against Tory Lanez, who shot Meg back in 2020. Moreover, he called out Lanez in the process. “You want to shoot b***hes in the feet n***a?” he said on IG Live. “Yous a p***y n***a. And when you get from jail n***a you know where I’m at. You got a problem n***a I’ll beat your b***h a** n***a. Don’t never rap over none of my beats, don’t never freestyle over none of my beats. You trash n***a. Your music trash.”

Certainly some strong words from Soulja. Sure, some people clowned it for not really being his business, but it seemed like everyone was giving their opinion anyway. Elsewhere, he recently got involved in a spat with Boosie Badazz as well over comments about straight rappers. Regardless of the oddity of that exchange, check out reactions to the Rolling Loud LA performance down below. Also, as always, log back into HNHH for the latest updates and news on Soulja Boy and more notable performance moments.
