Born To Be Wild With Eminem & Yelawolf (Pg.4)

YW: When we pulled up Bob [Kid Rock] pulled up on Waylon Jennings’ old golf cart painted like the General Lee. We pulled in and he’s got two cannons sitting in front of his house. A lot of classic Americana memorabilia. Letters from Johnny Cash on his wall. Pieces of his history at his warehouse, from when he was opening up for Too Short. I was just respecting his evolution from opening up for Too Short to hosting the CMTs is very inspirational. Me and Marshall played ball, which I won by the way.

You guys were playing basketball?

YW: You just gonna let me have that? [Laughs]

EM: Listen, I’ll let the reader ?gure out if he’s telling the truth about who won.

So he beat you Yelawolf, and you got him by a good, what four inches?

YW: We were playing 21 and I was hurt. Bad ankle.

EM: Now the excuses come. Him and his man got it.

How bad was the beating?

YW: It was so close, I had him right up to the very end. And he came back for the win.

EM: We were playing 21, and yeah, it was close. He had like four points.

Kid Rock didn’t play?

EM: He was barbecuing when we were playing.

YW: Didn’t Kid Rock beat you in a game of horse in ?ip-?ops?

EM: We played horse that night, really?

YW: Yeah, in ?ip-?ops that night.

EM: Do you really want this record to come out.[Laughs] Nah, he is nice. I’m not gonna front. He’s got a nice shot. He can play-play.

YW: Basketball, like I don’t know, the hunger to win with this dude [pointing to Eminem]. It’s awe- some but it’s also very funny.

EM: I’m a very competitive person, I will say that.

"All execs @HOT97 deny speaking to anyone @TMZ," Ebro wrote in a tweet, "So this means that Tekashi marketing machine is revving up to rally his on-line #Bots and drive stories."

New York City's 'Hot 97' Will Not Play Tekashi 6ix9ine's Music After His Prison Release

With 6ix9ine expected to come home soon, reportedly to a record deal worth $10 million, New York City's Hot 97 radio station is making it known that they will not play his music.

According to a report by TMZ, an executive from the radio station confirmed that they are not planning on playing 6ix9ine's music upon his release from prison. Hot 97's exec admits that the station has never been a big supporter of the rapper. They also dislike the Brooklyn rapper's decision to testify against his former Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods associates.

This also includes possibly banning the rapper from Summer Jam concert. TMZ  reported that the "Gummo" rapper is too much of a liability to preform at the celebrated concert.

Last year, Hot 97 personality Ebro, host of Ebro in the Morning, traded shots with 6ix9ine after the rapper berated Ebro on "Stoopid."

The executive states  that unless there's a public uproar that demands the station to play an overly successful song, then the company would consider it.

Queen Latifah To Receive Harvard University's W.E.B. Du Bois Medal

Praise for Queen Latifah's contributions to black culture continues to pour in for the Newark, New Jersey native. According to the Associated Press, the "U.N.I.T.Y" rapper will receive Harvard University's W.E.B. Du Bois Medal.

Alongside the award-winning entertainer, other game-changers in black culture will be honored on Oct. 22 including BET's co-founder Sheila Johnson, CEO of Vista Equity Partners Robert Smith, poet Rita Dove and more.

The occasion arrives over a year since Latifah received an honorary doctorate degree from Rutgers University in her New Jersey home state.

“This place has shaped me," she said during her acceptance speech. "Whether it’s been your home for four years or 40 years or something in between, you carry it with you. Just as I have. Long before Living Single and Set It Off and Chicago, it’s lessons I learned right here at home that made me the person I am."

The W.E.B. Du Bois Medal isn't only named after the activist but commemorates Du Bois' feat as the first black student to obtain a doctorate degree from the Ivy League.
