Dave East is revving up for the release of the third installment in the Karma mixtape seriesFollowing the debut of his 2019 debut, Survival, the rapper’s been working away through the pandemic and slowly unleashing new singles. Yesterday, he confirmed that the project will arrive on Aug. 14th. and now, he’s back with a brand new single off of the project. “So Confusing,” East’s latest offering, reflects on making it out rough circumstances while still dealing with many of the problems and hardships that come with it. From losing friends to financial problems, Dave East puts forth an honest take on his day-to-day life.

Though a tracklist hasn’t been released, Dave East confirmed a slew of collaborators on Karma 3 during an interview with Bootleg Kev. Mary J. Blige, Benny The Butcher, Popcaan, Trey Songz, and more. He also revealed in that same interview that he does have a song with Method Man but that’s in Statik Selektah’s vault.

Check out his new single below. 

Quotable Lyrics
You never know how life gon’ hit you, until you live it
Can’t be talkin’ about  the shit you ’bout to do until you did it
Lawyer good, n***a Mike did it, but he got acquitted
On the court, can’t just be travellin’, you know you gotta pivot


The Weeknd Announces Collab With Juice WRLD Drops This Week

Juice WRLD was really on his way to becoming one of the biggest artists in the world. He was smashing streaming numbers and still is even more after his passing. We received his posthumous album Legends Never Die just a few weeks back which became one of the highest-selling albums of the year.

Earlier this month, Lil Bibby shared a very promising hint that the collaboration with Juice WRLD and The Weeknd was in the stash. Though he didn’t elaborate on anything, it did seem like enough to confirm the existence of the song itself. This Thursday, the collaboration will be hitting DSPs. The Weeknd hit the ‘Gram with a photo of Juice WRLD with the caption, “XO + 999 Thursday Night.” 

The Weeknd revealed little details about the single. Given that both artists have dominated sales and streaming numbers this year, it wouldn’t be surprising in the least if we saw it skyrocket to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 in its first week. It would barely be surprising if that maintained that position for the weeks that followed.

Lil Bibby previously confirmed that a deluxe edition to Juice WRLD’s Legends Never Die will be arriving. Perhaps the new track with The Weeknd will be included in it. 


Migos & YoungBoy Never Broke Again Set A Date For “Need It” Video

Migos have been set to deliver Culture 3 for a minute now, though their best-laid plans were admittedly derailed by the COVID-19 pandemic. Though the state of their anticipated (though cautiously so, depending on who you ask) project remains unclear, that hasn’t stopped the Migos from keeping the ball rolling, teaming up with YoungBoy Never Broke Again to deliver one of their strongest tracks in a minute, “Need It.”

Now, the group has officially announced a release date for their upcoming video, taking to Instagram to share the movie-poster-inspired artwork. It’s a reflection of a recent behind-the-scenes image Quavo shared already, which finds the four contributing parties donning white tank tops in a back alley. Though it’s damn near impossible to predict anything concrete, it seems like “Need It” will be a refreshingly old-school video, if only based on their chosen outfits and location.

Look for “Need It” to arrive on Thursday, co-directed by Migos and Wyatt Winfrey and billed as a Quality Control joint — on that Spike Lee wave, it would seem. Now, let’s just that the clip itself has the cinematography to match it. We won’t have to wait too much longer to find out. Are you still excited for Culture 3? 


Charlamagne Tha God Fires Back At Logic Over Rape & Homophobia Questions

In a new interview with Rob Markman for Genius, Logic touches on how he feels about Charlamagne Tha God after having some past disagreements on The Breakfast Club. You may recall some of their tense moments in the past, including when Charlamagne asked the rapper about his sister’s rape and about false headlines claiming that he was homophobic. 

“That fucked me up and I actually held onto that for six years,” said Logic about his interaction with Charlamagne. 

Of course, that elicited a response from the man himself, who explains how he sees the situation.

“He was being disingenuous in that interview with Rob Markman. He knows I did not randomly ask him who raped his sister. Context matters,” says the radio host about a viral clip going around. “As you just heard in that interview, he mentioned his sister being raped twice. OK? That’s why you got to listen to the whole exchange with Logic in full. But you know, on the internet someone edited it and it starts out with me saying ‘who raped your sister?’ And they’ve been passing that clip around for years. I don’t expect these digital d-heads to be smart, but I expect Logic to be smart because he was actually sitting there.”

Do you think Charlamagne was still wrong to ask Logic about his sister’s rape, even though it was brought up organically in his music?
