Kid Cudi Tosses Wild First Pitch At Cleveland Guardians Game: Watch

There are a lot of rappers who wish they could be star athletes, and there are some athletes who wish they could be rappers. There have been a ton of examples where both stars from each respective profession could do both. Quavo is a stud on the basketball court, participating in multiple NBA All-Star Celebrity games. On the other side, you have multiple superstars who can flat-out spit bars. NBA point guard Damian Lillard has a couple of projects out right now that are more than listenable. Shaquille O’Neal is also big in the music scene nabbing a recent feature on a recent single with rap duo Coyote. But, Kid Cudi is not one that fits that mold.

Mr. Rager fits into tons of examples of artists flopping in sports. About nine years ago, most of the world witnessed possibly the worst first pitch in MLB history with 50 Cent. However, Cudi might have something to say about holding that title. Just this past weekend (September 22), the native Clevelander was asked to represent his hometown. The singer and rapper was brought onto the baseball diamond to throw out the first pitch for the Cleveland Guardians.

Kid Cudi Maybe Got A Little Nervous

In the video clips above obtained by HipHopDX, you can see in the second one that Cudi threw a solid practice pitch. However, things took a turn for the worse when more eyeballs were on him. Cudi wound up and threw the ball way outside of home plate, but all he could do was laugh and do a little dance afterward. He did not take himself too seriously, responding to fans saying, “I am a NON ATHLETE bro, its all in good fun!! I havent thrown a baseball since mini league as a kid and I wasnt good then too haha.” At least the Guardians would go on to win their game 9-8 against the Baltimore Orioles, so it was not all bad.

What are your initial thoughts on Kid Cudi’s first pitch at the Cleveland Guardians game? Where does his first pitch rank amongst the rest of the rappers’ appearances on the mound? Do you think you could make a pitch to home plate on an MLB field? We want to hear what you have to say about all of this. With that in mind, be sure to leave all of your thoughts and opinions in the comments section below.

Blueface’s “Hacked Twitter” Excuse Doesn’t Fly With Fans After Explicit Baby Photo Post

From the moment that tweet landed on Blueface’s Twitter account on Sunday (September 24), social media has been anticipating dire consequences are in store for the “Thotiana” artist. In the midst of (yet another) online battle with Chrisean Rock, the father of three posted a photo of their son’s genitals for his millions of followers to see, putting his co-parent on blast for seemingly neglecting to deal with the issue. According to the new mother, she’s been doing her best and staying on top of Junior’s appointments. Meanwhile Blue has hardly been doing anything to support her through this difficult transition.

Immediately after Blue shared far too much information with the world, he began facing criticism and backlash. “This what my son d**k look like [and] she worried about me and Lil Baby c**k. Like bih, get our son’s c**k right then do what you want,” the California native wrote when calling out his Cr*zy In Love co-star. The post has obviously since been removed, and on Monday morning, Blue gave us his best attempt at covering up his wrongdoing.

Blueface Claims His Phone was Stolen This Weekend

“My phone was stolen yesterday,” he wrote earlier today, “I just got a new one guys. I’m back, my Twitter was hacked,” the MILF Music founder declared. Unsurprisingly, the replies are full of people raising their eyebrows at the messy situation. “Ni**a found out posting a baby’s private part is illegal now he tryna say he was hacked LMFAOOO,” one user speculated. “It took him almost a full day to come up with this 💀,” another person chimed in.

Besides the now-deleted NSFW photo of his son that landed on Blueface’s Twitter profile this weekend, the internet is also discussing a viral video of Jaidyn Alexis. In the clip, YouTuber DDG orders at a restaurant while the “Stewie” rapper works behind the counter. Despite claims that it was captured after her recent feud with Blue, it actually came from 2021, and the California native had no problem defending his co-parent for working so hard at his family’s shop.

Pharrell And Timbaland Debate Who Has The Better Jay-Z Collabs

Timbaland and Pharrell have been friends for a while and they clearly admire each other’s work. They crossed paths recently at an event celebrating another production legend. Swizz Beatz recently celebrated his birthday and the celebration was multi-faceted. Pictures of the producer heading out on a double date with Lil Durk made the rounds last week. Now, more content from his birthday festivities is emerging online.

In a new clip two more veteran producers, Pharrell and Timbaland, are discussing their respective work with Jay-Z. As you might expect, things quickly evolved into a debate over who had the better catalog. But there’s no ego to be found here as the pair are actually arguing on behalf of each other. “What are we doing? ‘Dirt Off Your Shoulder’!” Pharrell begins giving credit to the Timbaland-producer cut. That started a total back and forth between the two over who’s collaborations with the legendary Roc Nation chief were better. Check out the adorable clip below.

Who Has The Better Jay-Z Collabs?

Pharrell has never stuck to just music and earlier this year he expanded his reach into the world of fashion even further. He debuted his first collection as Head of Menswear at Louis Vuitton during Paris Fashion Week and it was a highly musical affair. Pusha T and Malice reunited Clipse to perform and debut a new song together. Tyler, The Creator, Jay-Z and Beyonce, and many more musicians were in attendance for the show.

Meanwhile, Pharrell has also continued working on new music. He’s claimed a few times this year that new tunes could be on the way soon. One moment in particular that hyped fans up is when he said that he had new N.E.R.D songs on the way soon. In another interview last month, he shared that he has over 3 albums worth of new music that he’s currently sitting on. Who do you think has the best catalog of collaborations with Jay-Z? Let us know in the comment section below.

Lil Baby Roasted By Fans Online For Gun Video

Over the weekend a strange video went viral of Lil Baby at a shooting range where he shows off some less than stellar form while taking practice shots. While many online pointed out how strange and kind of humorous the video is, others took a more technical approach to breaking it down. Fans in the know pointed out his bad form, which nearly caused him to fall over. They also pointed out that the only thing keeping him from losing his balance completely was the instructor who puts his hand on Baby’s back. Check out the video in its entirety below.

This hasn’t been the only viral moment for Lil Baby recently. The rapper has been embroiled in a bit of a minor beef with Blueface recently. It began mostly casually with fans making theories about subliminal shots taken in music videos or tweets. But even after it seemed to go more mainstream the pair avoided any direct shots at each other. That’s why it was no surprise over the weekend when Baby shouted Blue out for easing up on Chrisean Rock and mentioned that he was done having opps.

Lil Baby At The Firing Range

Earlier this month, Lil Baby had a concert in Memphis that nearly resulted in a tragedy. A shooting erupted in the audience that resulted in one fan going to the hospital. While the fan shared a few update videos from his hospita stay, Baby was pretty quiet on the incident. Aside from promising fans online a refund for their tickets, he hasn’t done much to acknowledge the situation. The only comments from artists playing at the show came from GloRilla, who is a Memphis native herself.

Fans React

As you’d expect there were plenty of people online making jokes at Baby’s expense. These are some of the funniest and most popular viral reactions to the new video of the rapper at the shooting range. What do you think of the video? Let us know in the comment section below.

MC Hammer Fires Back At Haters Over “One-Hit Wonder” Accusation

MC Hammer shot back at trolls on Twitter, over the weekend, who labeled him a “one hit wonder.” In addition to sharing his hip-hop credentials, he also received backing from Chuck D of Public Enemy.

After sharing a video from the Academy of Social Sciences in Australia, one fan told him to stay in his lane. “He’s a ‘has been’ who knows fuck all about what is going on in Australia. He should stick to holding his own government accountable, like the cocaine owner in the White House,” they wrote. MC Hammer fired back: “Ouuuch! Might I remind you that a ‘has been’ is bigger than a ‘Never Was’” From there, another user labeled him a “one hit wonder,” to which he responded: “I got at least 19 charted hits … which one made you wonder.”

From there, Chuck D chimed in with a defense of Hammer. “More importantly i saw 15,000 -20,000 arena people…get exhausted and worn out watching you @mchammer while singing those hits. Yes NEWGENS it did happen years on end. No myth no hype,” he wrote. MC Hammer replied: “Always appreciate you and our journey @MrChuckD.” Check out two of the posts below.

MC Hammer Responds To Trolls

The “one hit” the aforementioned fan was referencing was likely Hammer’s iconic 1990 song, “U Can’t Touch This,” which samples the opening riff of Rick James’ 1981 single “Super Freak.” The hit won a Grammy Award for Best R&B Song and a Grammy Award for Best Rap Solo Performance. It was also the first rap song to be nominated for a Grammy Award for Record of the Year at the 33rd Annual Grammy Awards in 1991.

Cardi B & GloRilla Celebrate Anniversary Of “Tomorrow 2”

Cardi B and GloRilla celebrated the one-year anniversary of their collaboration, “Tomorrow 2,” on Twitter, Saturday. The track gave GloRilla her first top-10 song when it peaked at number 9 on the Billboard Hot 100. The RIAA has since certified it double platinum.

“1 year anniversary of tomorrow 2,” GloRilla wrote, to which Cardi replied: “COUSINNNNN.” Fans joined in the celebrations as well, sharing clips from the music video. “Congratulations to you and Cardi!

It’s not the first time GloRilla and Cardi have referred to each other as cousins. GloRilla previously discussed her friendship with Cardi during an interview with NME published last year. “I ain’t got a lot of friends, and I’m easy to deal with. Cardi is my cousin. I was so happy and excited during the whole creative process,” she said at the time. “Cardi is a really sweet soul [with] such a genuine heart, and we come from a similar background, so it was easy to connect. And it was cr*zy when ‘Tomorrow 2’ hit the charts. I was like, ‘Ah! Ain’t nobody knew about me a couple of months ago!’”

Cardi B Calls Glorilla Her Cousin

GloRilla also shared her reaction to Cardi reaching out to her for the first time and admitted she’s tried sending her music before. “I had been sending Cardi music since I first started rapping, and I tried for so long to get her to look at my music. But then she ended up listening and liked my music, to the point where she was like, ‘I’ve already done my verse for ‘Tomorrow 2’ before I heard anything else from her. I love Cardi.”

Latto Quotes Jaidyn Alexis’ “Stewie,” Blueface Reposts

Earlier this summer, the mother of Blueface’s first two children, Jaidyn Alexis, kicked off her rapping career. She even became the first to sign to the 26-year-old’s new label, MILF Music. Jaidyn debuted her first track, “Stewie,” back in June, before dropping “Workout” the following month. Most recently, the mother of two delivered “Post Opp.”

Jaidyn’s music career has been fairly controversial, although most of the hate she receives stems from her relationship with Blueface. He’s known to go back and forth between her and Chrisean Rock, with whom he just had his third child. She typically lets the hate roll off her back, even frequently giving nods to some of trolls’ favorite insults in her songs. Recently, however, she announced her departure from Blueface’s label, after he reunited with Chrisean a few weeks after his son’s birth for a music video. Jaidyn wasn’t pleased that he hung out with Chrisean publicly, and unleashed on him on Twitter. Luckily, it appears that now they’re back on good terms, sharing the stage together at a recent performance.

Blueface Reposts Latto’s Tweet

Apparently, Chrisean was even supposed to join them. The new mother revealed on Instagram that she couldn’t be there due to an important appointment she had to bring her son to. With that being said, it looks like MILF Music is back in action and bigger than ever, at least for now. Though Jaidyn continues to be hit with criticism for her music, she appeared to get a co-sign today, from a very popular fellow MC. Latto took to Twitter to write, “Is u blind hoe????” which is a lyric from Jaidyn’s debut track, “Stewie.”

Blueface later acknowledged the “Put It On Da Floor” performer’s Tweet by reposting it. What do you think of Latto quoting Jaidyn Alexis’ song? Share your thoughts in the comments section down below, and keep an eye on HNHH for more news.

Twitter Compares Halle Bailey To Janet Jackson While Dissing DDG

Halle Bailey and DDG are one of the more divisive couples online, with many fans of the singer often criticizing the YouTuber and rapper. It’s been rough for them in spaces like Twitter, but they continue to stand by each other no matter what. In fact, even when Chlöe’s sister provokes comparisons to a legend like Janet Jackson, Internet folk find ways to drag him in the mud. “She’s so Janet coded even down to the low budget baby daddy,” one user wrote on Twitter, quote-tweeting a video of the pair at a Gucci fashion show. What’s more is that this isn’t even the first time that fans compared the R&B singer to the iconic Jackson sister.

Of course, the sheer veracity of this statement was subject to some debate in the replies. For one, many thought that this user referred to Janet’s relationship with Jermaine Dupri, who is by no means low-budget. In addition, the father of her son (whom she since divorced) is apparently a wealthy businessman from Qatar. As such, maybe it’s not the best comparison point, although there are many reasons why Halle Bailey should be honored by that link.

Another Halle Bailey & Janet Jackson Comparison- But This One Shades DDG

On top of all this, Halle Bailey and DDG also have to deal with a barrage of pregnancy rumors that are floating online right now. Most of them revolve around the Little Mermaid actress’ outfit choices, which some believe cover up more belly space than usual. Considering that people already don’t like this relationship for whatever reason, this is a panic room emergency for some. Regardless of all of that, they still seem quite happy together, and always support each other’s individual career evolution.

Meanwhile, it’s also understandable that this causes some frustration for them. “The internet is not real,” Halle’s man tweeted recently. “I’m having this s**t in real life. These folks ‘play hate’ and stream my s**t in private. And all them females talkin bout my girl can ‘do better’ f**k broke n***as wit no ambition. Ya ain’t never been to chanel & can pick out whatever & how many bags ya want.” For more news and the latest updates on DDG, Halle Bailey, and Janet Jackson, come back to HNHH.

Eminem’s Former Collaborator Had To Launch A GoFundMe For Medical Issues

In early 2003, Eminem released the third single from his fourth album The Eminem Show. The track was called “Superman” and it became a big hit rising all the way up to number 15 on the Hot 100. It also turned up on the 2003 year-end charts at number 98. The track features collaborations from a singer called Dina Rae. Rae appears as a vocal guest on a number of the rapper’s tracks but unfortunately, she appears to have fallen on hard times.

Back in March, she made a GoFundMe to try and get the money for some necessary medical care. She ultimately required corrective surgery for her neck and spine. She had the expensive procedure done at UCLA Hospital and anticipates facing massive bills afterward. “As I’m sure you know, this is an expensive surgery and during this procedure and after I will be entirely responsible for all associated costs, and unable to work as I recover,” the homepage of the GoFundMe reads. Check out a post about it below.

Eminem Singer Dina Rae Launches GoFundMe

Rae elaborated more on her request for help. “I am raising money so I can have this procedure, because the fact is, I’ll need some help as I recover and rehabilitate. I’m hoping to cover rent bills and the basic expenses for a few months, I thank you all so much.” The GoFundMe currently sits with just $1600 of its $33k goal raised but Em’s fans online have ben spreading it recently.

Eminem has spoken out a few times recently getting fans’ attention. He called 50 Cent his “best friend” causing the rapper to reflect on their career development together. That comment emerged from Em joining 50 Cent on stage during a Detroit stop on his massive ongoing “The Final Lap” tour. The interaction caused Em fans online to reminisce on their favorite moments between the two. What do you think of a former Eminem collaborator being forced to start a GoFundMe to afford surgery? Let us know in the comment section below.

JT Laughs At Her Old Club Outfit In Throwback Pic

Whenever you look back on an old embarrassing fit in your eyes, you have two choices: defend it with excuses or just accept it. JT of the City Girls is too self-aware, confident, and fun-loving to do anything but the latter, as she recently showed on Twitter. Moreover, someone tweeted out an old picture of her wearing some interesting clubbing attire. Heeled boots, tiny leather shorts, and nothing but an open white blazer as her top certainly made for a risqué look. Still, a lot of people rocked with it, but maybe the rapper thought that it would be best for another occasion. “Why was I at the club like this fr!!!!!!” she quote-replied with a slew of crying emojis.

Regardless, JT’s known for some killer style, and sometimes for her revealing and bare choices when it comes to it. For example, for her recent Beats By Dre x Mowalola campaign, she only wore the headphones she advertised and nothing else. Of course, the Florida MC’s fashion passion sometimes goes to scary heights for some, and a few users were quite critical of the NSFW campaign as a whole. With this in mind, she clapped back at the haters online.

“One thing about y’all porch n***as y’all don’t let nobody have s**t,” JT let out via a tweet “Nothing is to y’all standard. You’ll never see a Hugo Comte lens just like your beard will never connect.” “This is not for the trolls, this is not for the h*es, this is not for the people trying to defend it,” she continued on IG Live. “It’s for everybody. It’s for my dark skin girls with the nose… This Miss Mug Shot is now the face of a brand, b***h.”

Meanwhile, with the release of their latest single “Face Down,” it looks like the City Girls are turning up the heat once again. Hopefully we get more material in the coming weeks, as they’ve spent a long time building anticipation for more bangers. All the way up to that moment, we’re sure that Yung Miami and her partner will continue to dazzle- and look back on how far they and their fashion have come. Stay posted on HNHH for the latest news and updates on JT.
