Game And Young Buck Reunite In The Studio (Video)

G-Unit stans are grinning from ear to ear as Young Buck and The Game have reunited in the studio for the first time in years. After being released from prison last month following an 18-month prison sentence on felony charges, the Cashville Records signee immediately whipped out the pen and pad for a new record titled "Rolling Stone" featuring Jayceon Taylor, that pays homage to the Temptations classic "Papa Was A Rollin' Stone."

Meanwhile, fellow Guerilla Unit member Tony Yayo served up some nostalgia on his Instagram for #ThrowbackThursday with a photo of the rap group in happier times (below). Past tensions haven't stopped some of the members from forging an epic reunion as The Game even started a petition to reunite Fif and the gang earlier this year.

"G-Unit is an American hip hop group originating from New York City formed by East Coast rappers 50 Cent, Lloyd Banks and Tony Yayo, Dirty South rapper Young Buck along with West Coast Rapper The Game," he wrote. "The name of the group is short for Guerilla Unit. They delivered some of the best hip hop songs the world has ever heard, since then the group have collapsed with both The Game & Young Buck no longer part of this once heavyweight group. It’s about time we gave the world what they want, a ‘Reunion’, there is no doubt that if the group reformed they would smash their way to the top again."

Then in May, Curtis Jackson didn't reciprocate the warm fuzzies, saying that the G-Unit fellas didn't appreciate him in an interview. "[I got ] to the point were I was writing their music, helping them with their albums," he said. "I think that there are certain things you do where you enable people and they feel like you are supposed to do that. This is how we do it versus they appreciate you actually doing it. So I made that mistake also."

While we patiently wait for that G-union, watch Buck and Game kick it in the stu above.

Beyonce Releases Initial Version Of "Sorry"

The month of April belongs to Queen Bey after she's gifted fans with something new week after week. Following the debut of her first of three reported productions with Netflix, plus new clothing merchandise just in time for spring, Beyonce placed her Lemonade album on all streaming services.

Not only is her sixth solo studio album available on Spotify, Apple Music, and other platforms, but she also added a demo version of "Sorry" as the last track. This melody hosts a notable departure from its album version, stripping away from the resounding drums and added lyrics for a stripped-down version of the song written by Wynter Gordon, MeLo-X and the "All Night" singer. The album's upload also arrives on the three-year anniversary of its debut (April 23).

Through its exploration of different music genres, Beyonce revealed her emotions and perseverance in the face of Jay-Z's infidelity. "Sorry" served as one of those songs that put this bump in their marital journey on lyrical display.

In a previous interview with David Letterman, Jay-Z said therapy played a pivotal role in mending their marriage. “We did the hard work of going to therapy. We love each other, so we really put in the work for years,” he said. "...I like to believe we’re in a better place today. I’m proud of the father and the husband that I am today.”

Black Woman Awarded $100,000 Settlement Over 'Blue Lives Matter' Complaint

A woman from Oregon was awarded a $100,000 settlement after complaining about harassment regarding a “Blue Lives Matter” flag in her office.

In her suit, Karimah Guion-Pledgure said that her workplace environment became “hostile” after a “Blue Lives Matter” flag was pinned up in her office. Guion-Pledgure– who works as a corrections technician– sued Multnomah County after months of what she called “racial harassment” that “demeans” the Black Lives Matter movement. She also says that the harassment and tension she experienced in the workplace led to issues with stress and health problems.

Guion-Pledgure began complaining about the flag in September 2017, after a probation worker in her office pinned it above his desk. To counter the flag, she created an “equity wall” in 2018, which featured photos of people of color who have been killed by police, as well as photos of children who were separated by their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border.

“A copy of the lawsuit obtained by the Daily News said the Blue Lives Matter movement 'co-opts' the Black Lives Matter movement’s slogan and repurposes it to shift focus from black lives to law enforcement, which is ‘a chosen profession, not a racial identity,’” reports the New York Daily News.

As part of her settlement Ms. Guion-Pledgure had to resign from her job this past Friday (April 19).

Kid Cudi Buys $10,000 Worth Of Popeyes To Give To The Homeless

Kid Cudi reportedly spent $10,000 on Postmates while in Indio, Calif. for the second weekend of Coachella, where he accompanied collaborator and friend Kanye West during his highly-anticipated Sunday Service. However, the lofty price tag for food was for a great cause.

According to TMZ, the Kids See Ghost musician bought Popeyes chicken, biscuits, mashed potatoes and fries to the homeless community in the area through the Coachella Valley Homeless Commission.

"The delivery service dropped off a carload of food to the shelter, which serves hundreds of homeless people in Indio," writes the gossip site, "and they all got a nice hot meal this weekend thanks to Cudi's generosity." In a video of the good deed unfolding, dozens of boxes of Popeyes are unveiled in the trunk of a car. In another shot, plates full of meals are placed on a counter for delivery.

Other than his super sweet deed, Cudi worked with Postmates to curate a munchies-friendly menu, which will be available until May 25 in San Francisco, New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and Miami.

"Just open your Postmates app or visit Postmates.com, select the Munchies Menu and order from the restaurant in your market," the site reads.
