All Is Well: Young Thug Apologizes To Future Over "Internet Arguments"

Let's hope that things are really copacetic between the two.

After tensions arose between ATLiens Future and Young Thug, it seems like things are finally getting back to some semblance of normalcy. Thugger took to Instagram to apologize to the EVOL MC for Internet arguments and small bicker sprees throughout the past year.

"My brada... I'm sorry for the internet argumentS!!" the JEFFERY musician captioned his picture with. The snapshot is of the two  standing together, pointing their middle fingers to the camera.

Their alleged beef became public knowledge after a back-and-forth war of words between Young Thug and Metro Boomin, in which the young producer said that Future Hendrix started the trend of releasing several mixtapes a year, to which Thug felt slighted by since he released three mixtapes that year alone.

"A ni**a music couldn't ever sound nowhere near mines.... ((IM MICHEAL)) he's ((TITO))" he wrote in response to Metro's tweets. Although he said he loved Future in a later, now-deleted tweet, that didn't stop an alleged subtweet from Future which read, "U will never have the juice like dat..."

Things seemed to have cooled down between the two after Young Thug dedicated a song on the Aug. 25 mixtape to Future, and they worked together on the song "Who" earlier this summer for DJ Esco's Project E.T. Let's hope that things are really copacetic between the two.

Big Sean Confronts Nipsey Hussle's Killer In Thoughtful Video

Fans are still processing the death of Nipsey Hussle. While some people have expressed anger and sorrow, others are channeling their emotions in different ways. Big Sean shared a powerful video message on Instagram on Monday (May 20) about Nip's passing and even addressed his killer.

"You know what I wanted to say was to the person who murdered Nipsey and to people like that who take somebody’s life out of impulse or for revenge or whatever the case may be—you’re making a permanent solution to a temporary problem," Sean said. "Obviously that’s not how you solve problems. I don't know if we know the value of a life for real, because when you take somebody’s life, dog—you’re setting back their family. You’re setting the whole lineage back—generations. What I mean by that is, I know for a fact my grandma was working for my mom and for me and my brother. I don’t even have kids—I’m definitely already working for my kids and my kids’ kids. When you take somebody’s life, you’re setting all that back. And for what? For something that could have been communicated better?"

Although Big Sean doesn't say his name in the video, he is likely referring to Eric Holder, who was arrested for allegedly murdering Nipsey Hussle outside of his Los Angeles clothing store in Mar. 2019. Police say Hussle was shot after he and Holder got into an argument.

Sean also pointed out the difficulties black men have with communicating their feelings. "It takes a lot of effort. I’ve noticed that men, and in Black men, we're taught to communicate certain ways," he continued. "We're taught to be tough, we're taught to stand tough and get your revenge and retaliate through violence and all that type of shit. But you know, we’re going to keep losing kings!"You can view Sean's message for yourself below.

Little Brother To Reunite At Hopscotch Festival And Release New Music

This is not a drill. Little Brother is back.

DJBooth reports Big Pooh and Phonte will officially return to the stage as Little Brother at the upcoming Hopscotch Festival. The North Carolina legends confirmed the news to the outlet and noted that 9th Wonder won't be apart of the reunion but did give his blessing.

The group made waves with their debut album The Listening in the early aughts but cemented their legacy with the classic album, The Minstrel Show in 2005. As Uproxx notes, the group also inspired and worked with some of the biggest artists in music today like Drake and Kanye West.

"I'm excited to announce that my brother Big Pooh and I are back at work. New Little Brother music and a tour are coming soon," Phonte said in a statement to DJBooth. "After conversations with 9th Wonder following our Art of Cool reunion show in Durham last year, the three of us mutually agreed it was best for LB to continue as a duo, as Pooh and I have officially been Little Brother since 2007."

Like Phonte mentioned, the group reunited briefly at the Art of Cool Festival in Durham, North Carolina last year. Phone and Pooh will also release new music as Little Brother.

Since their initial split, each member has gone on to release their own critically acclaimed projects. Phonte released solo projects like No News Is Good News and recently celebrated the 11th anniversary of The Foreign Exchange's standout project, Leave It All Behind.

Big Pooh has released several albums over the years, including his latest project RPM in 2018. 9th Wonder has notably gone on to be one of the most important producers in hip-hop, working with the likes of Jay-Z, the late Nipsey Hussle, and Kendrick Lamar. He also founded Jamla Records with Grammy-nominated Rapsody on his roster.

It's Happening: Rihanna Confirms 'R9' Will Be A Reggae Album

Last year, sources close to singer and business mogul Rihanna told Rolling Stone that her ninth studio-album would pay homage to her Caribbean roots. In an interview with T Magazine, the news appears to have been confirmed by the Bajan beauty herself.

Rihanna hinted that the project– which she joked may actually be called R9 thanks to her Navy– will indeed be a Reggae/Dancehall album.

“I’m about to call it that probably, ’cause they have haunted me with this ‘R9, R9, when is R9 coming out?'” she laughed. “How will I accept another name after that’s been burned into my skull?” Elsewhere in the conversation about new music, Rihanna stated that Drake will not be a featured artist on the LP and that she is open to working with Lady Gaga in the future.

Last year, an anonymous producer stated that Rih’s team had “500 records” for R9 “[From] different producers and writers.” Despite the massive number of tracks to choose from, they were able to narrow it down to the lowest double-digit.

“They’re only choosing 10 records,” the producer reportedly said. “They’ve been having writing camps and trying to keep them quiet for almost a year and a half now.”

While there’s no official word on when her highly-anticipated follow up to ANTI will drop, Rihanna is certainly keeping busy. She recently announced she is working with LVMH on an exclusive fashion house, Fenty, expanding her brand as a beauty and fashion entrepreneur.
