Eminem's “Till I Collapse” Hits Impressive New Milestone

At this point, it’s hardly surprising to see Eminem breaking another record, but it’s still impressive to see all the different songs that have resonated with so many different people. And while the majority of his most successful tracks, at least numerically speaking, are his singles — think “Lose Yourself,” “Love The Way You Lie,” and “Without Me,” for example — one of Eminem’s more beloved album cuts has officially earned the rapper another musical milestone for his collection.

According to a report from the Twitter account Chart Data, Eminem’s Nate Dogg-assisted “Till I Collapse” has made history, becoming the first non-single to secure one billion streams on Spotify. As such, it currently stands as the biggest non-single in history — at least, so far. Unsurprising, given how popular the track has become, taking on new life as a workout playlist favorite; after all, Em’s militant beat and never-say-die lyricism seem to lend themselves well to the motivation process. And of course, having a chorus handled by the King Of Hooks himself, the late, great, Nate Dogg, doesn’t hurt either. 

Overall, it’s a big win for Eminem, Nate Dogg’s friends, fans, and family, and those who still believe that bars can indeed have commercial longevity. Lest we forget that “Collapse” is easily one of The Eminem Show’s standout tracks, and few can deny that Slim was in his bag across all three verses. Though his top nine emcees may have changed since he first shared them in 2002, one thing most certainly has not — Em can still move units, and it wouldn’t be surprising to see even some of his deeper cuts beginning to shine. Congratulations to Eminem for this one!

Wack 100 Calls Out Meek Mill For Leaked Kobe Bryant Lyric

Wack 100 has some deep-rooted issues with Meek Mill that he’s brought to the surface this week, calling out the Philadelphia rapper over his parking lot altercation with Tekashi 6ix9ine this weekend. Awarding the win to 6ix9ine, Wack 100 was seemingly upset with how Meek handled that situation, and he’s furthering his beef with the “Uptown Vibes” artist by bringing up his latest controversy.

On Wednesday night, a leaked record by Meek Mill and Lil Baby started catching people’s attention, specifically because of something Meek said in his verse. “And if I ever lack I’m going out with my chopper, it be another Kobe,” raps Meek on the song, which many have considered to be disrespectful and hurtful to the Bryant family. The rapper responded to the backlash on Twitter on Thursday morning, but he remains a trending topic as people continue to tear him apart. As expected, The Game’s manager Wack 100 jumped in with his own two cents on the matter, calling out Meek for his lyrics.

“Some metaphors SHOULD not be used,” wrote Wack on Instagram, posting a picture of the late Kobe and Gianna Bryant. “Pretenders struggle to pretend when it’s not authentic — 1 man don’t speak for #Philli -Rip #Kobe&GIGI.”

In his comments, people are pointing out that Wack 100 has made some questionable remarks of his own about another fallen legend, the late Nipsey Hussle. In a video that was posted in 2019, Wack essentially praised Eric Holder for fatally shooting Nipsey. “He did what he was supposed to do when another gangbanger calls you a f****t, a pedophile, or a snitch,” said Wack at the time. “You supposed to handle your business. And can’t nobody say that’s wrong.”

Meek’s lyrics about Kobe’s death are certainly hurtful. His passing shouldn’t be used as a cheap punchline. But is Wack 100 the right person to be commenting on this?

Carson Wentz Traded To The Indianapolis Colts: Report

For the last few months, it became quite clear that Carson Wentz was no longer content with the Philadelphia Eagles. After benching him for the likes of Jalen Hurts, the writing was on the wall, and for weeks, analysts have been anticipating a massive trade. While some felt like the Chicago Bears could be an option, the Eagles ultimately had other plans that were fairly obvious.

Everyone was expected Wentz to be traded to the Indianapolis Colts, especially since Philip Rivers decided to retire. On Thursday, those expectations became a reality, as the Eagles traded Wentz to the Colts in exchange for a third-round pick in 2021, and a second-round pick in 2022.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, this second-round pick can become a first-round pick if Wentz plays over 75 percent of the Colts’ games next season. Wentz has been lacking confidence lately but Indianapolis is looking like the perfect fresh start, and if he gets his mojo back, 12 games wouldn’t seem so daunting.

While Colts fans have been holding out hope for the Deshaun Watson’s of the world, Wentz is still an MVP-caliber player, and he’ll be extra motivated to start proving people wrong.

Keep it locked to HNHH, as we will continue to bring you the latest NFL news.

$NOT & Denzel Curry Bring A Splash Of Pink To Albania In “Sangria” Video

West Palm Beach artist $NOT dropped off two full-length albums over the span of 2020. At the start of spring, he released his debut project – TRAGEDY +, a twelve-track offering that solely featured Maggie Lindemann and Wifisfuneral. In an impressive feat, the “GOSHA” rapper doubled up during the fall to share yet another twelve-track project in the form of Beautiful Havoc. Released in October, Beautiful Havoc was led by singles like “Mean” and “Sangria,” which feature Flo Milli and Denzel Curry, respectively.

So far, several songs from the project — including “WATCH OUT,” “Who Do I Trust,” and “Like Me” — have received captivating visual treatments, and yesterday, $NOT returned with a brand new music video for “Sangria.”

After a series of Cole Bennet-directed music videos, $NOT switches things up and taps Omar Jones to direct the visuals for “Sangria.” The final result is like a scene out of Dr. Strange — trippy, vibrant, and beautifully shot. Set in Albania, the video finds $NOT and his fellow Florida artist Denzel Curry sporting all pink outfits as they parade around under an overpass near the Lana River in Tirana. The crazy camera work packs a punch that makes the two rappers’ verses hit even harder, and its dizzying visual effects pair perfectly with the production’s hypnotic flute sample.

How are you feeling about this Omar Jones-directed music video?
