Rich The Kid Introduces His New Group, 83 Babies With "No Cap" Video

Back in 2013, Coach K of Quality Control brought a buzzin' rap trio through to the VIBE offices. Migos' "Fight Night" was a club hit and "Versace" with Drake was ruling the game. He announced Quavo and Takeoff, but the third member looked different from the pics we saw previously. "This is Rich The Kid," he stated calmly. "He's rolls with us." Rich wasn't known heavily at that point, but what we determined by his easy going nature and ability to network was this kid is a star, or soon will be.

The smartest thing about that whole scene was how Coach K did a great press run for the Migos as a trio, even with Offset locked up at the time. Having Rich The Kid roll with them accomplished the mission of keeping the Migos' look as a trio annnnd establishing another new artist at the same time. As the relationship didn't materialize as Rich being on Quality Control, it provided the youngin' valuable knowledge on the game and how to do roll outs and such. Thus, Rich The Kid's own Rich Forever Music label being born a few years ago. With enormous success on his own with hits and tours under his belt, the New York native turned Georgia repper started signing up talent. Most notable acts Famous Dex and Jay Critch signed with Rich bolstering his start up company (established in 2016) to fast recognition.

Now in the same way that Rich was introduced to VIBE, 83 Babies are following suit. A few months ago the North Carolina trio, with strikingly similar sounds to Migos', came through the office with a visiting Rich The Kid, who was playing our team some of his unreleased album cuts. We got a chance to kick it with Lil Tony, Set It Off and Young Boss Tevo for a sec. With their minds taking in the atmosphere, we learned that they were in a tug-of-war state as various labels were vying for their talent. Judging from the Rich announcement of 83 Babies being signed to Rich Forever Music this past March, the fellas made their choice.

With co-signs from the Migos and many others, 83 Babies have a clear shot at success. The trap rap "No Cap" single and video finds the group stating just who they are in their music, real dudes that happen to rhyme. Slated to open up on Rich The Kid's "The World Is Yours 2" tour, the three MCs will learn about traveling the country for fans that have never seen you up close. We are sure they are more than ready.

Watch their newest video above.

Blac Chyna Denies Lying About Acceptance Into Harvard Business School

Blac Chyna is on a media blitz promoting her new reality show and setting the record straight about various rumors. During an interview with The Breakfast Club Friday (May 17), Chyna responded to reports that she lied about being accepted into Harvard’s online extension program after the university denied that she was a enrolled.

“[I] wasn’t lying I’m still going through the process right now,” she told the radio hosts while explaining that Harvard offers online and extension programs in addition to general attendance. “Honestly I’m just tired of people with the stories,” she said reiterating that she is “still going through the process” of enrolling in the prestigious institution's online program.

The 31-year-old mother of two went on to address a recent altercation with her hairdresser, though she wasn’t able to go too deeply into detail for legal reasons. Later in the interview she spoke about Tyga, her relationship with Rob Kardashian and his family, getting Future’s name tattooed on her hand, and The Real Black Chyna, a docuseries airing on the Zues Network that will show her “everyday life.”

“I feel like I haven’t really spoken in all these years so it’s time for me to put out my side.”

Federal Prosecutors Reportedly Claim Kodak Black Is A Danger To Society

Kodak Black entered a not guilty plea Wednesday (May 15) in response to federal weapons charges stemming from his latest arrest, but prosecutors in the case are reportedly trying to keep him in jail arguing that he’s a potentially dangerous given his lengthy criminal history.

According to initial reports, the 21-year-old rapper was granted release on $550,000 bond with house arrest, and his $600,000 mansion was used as collateral. However, prosecutors filed documents claiming that the Florida native should remain locked up because he is likely to flee and is known to disregard probation restrictions, TMZ reports.

During a court hearing earlier this week prosecutors told the judge that, “Wherever he goes there’s going to be guns, drugs and shootings.”

Kodak’s lawyer, Bradford Cohen, pointed out that his current arrest was related to “paperwork” as he allegedly lied on gun applications. Furthermore, Cohen noted that if authorities truly felt that his client was a danger to society than he should have been arrested in January, when he filled out the paperwork.

Miami-Dade police arrested Kodak on the way to the Rolling Loud Miami Festival last weekend. He was also arrested last month on drug and gun charges at the Canadian border.

Kodak, whose birth name is Dieuson Octave but legally changed his name to Bill Kapri, was out on bail for charges in South Carolina where he is accused of sexually assaulting a high school student in 2016. His bail could be revoked given the new weapons charges. If convicted in the rape case he faces up to 30 years.
