Lil Bibby & Lil Durk Provide Accurate Reactions To The Soulja Boy-Chris Brown Fiasco

The guys from Chicago are laughing at you, not with you. 

With time, we all learn that some antics aren't worth the migraine. For Lil Bibby and Lil Durk, it's allowed them on the bench with the rest of us as we begrudgingly watch the events of the Soulja Boy and Chris Brown fiasco unfold.

In part 324 of the saga, Soulja's run-in with a few gang members during his Instagram Live stream became the laughing stock of the social sphere Tuesday afternoon (Jan. 3) when it was believed he was jumped for his phone. While other vantage points of the incident showed otherwise, it didn't stop fans, comedians and even Lil Durk from sharing their own take on the incident.

Just a few hours earlier, Bibby showed props to Soulja for refusing to back down from a boxing challenge with the "Party" singer but admitted he would put his coins behind Breezy. "[You'll] see my shorty wasn’t blowing,” Bibby said in his Instagram post. “He get to squaring up. 'What’s happening, Blood, ’ Nah, but go on head man, catch that fade. I got 30 on Breezy, 30 on Breezy, go on catch that fade."

The 20-somethings have had their fair share of rowdy roughness, but these days it's all about keeping the peace. Speaking to VIBE last year, Durk says he's hoping to help violence in Chicago by working with his peers like Bibby, Lil Herb along with Minster Louis Farrakhan to reduce the influence gangs have on the city's youth.

“What’s going on in Chicago, is with the gangs that are in Chicago,” Durk said. “That’s the big thing with all of the gangs, and all of the people who have voices. That’s why all the rappers who have voices in Chicago: Lil Herb, Hypno, Lil Bibby, Dj Bandz, Minister Louis Farrakhan if we all try to put something together to stop the BS, you know what I’m saying? All sides. So if everybody who has the voices just come together, and just try and talk it out and be like, ‘Let’s slow down, let’s try to get to the community,’ or just do anything to slow it down because the violence is never going to stop. I mean it’s not going to happen overnight, but it’s going to happen. If everybody is in there 100%, I guarantee it’s going to slow down.”

Maybe these two can be an example for Soulja and Brown to reduce their overzealous corny gang proclamations.

Dreezy And Jacquees Rekindle Flames In "Love Someone" Video

Dreezy and Jacquees decided to reignite their relationship in the video for the love ballad titled, “Love Someone. ”

Directed by Jake Riley and John Lathan, the visuals follows the breakup of several couples. Playing the role of a scorned lover, Dreezy decides to light her man’s car on fire with gasoline. Meanwhile, Jacquees reflects on losing his woman.

Dreezy spoke to Coveteur about the lovelorn record.

"‘Love Someone’" kind of fell in place on its own. I was in the studio working on tracks, and I wanted a real-life personal song that I could include,” Dreezy said to Coveteur. “I was drawing inspiration from past broken relationships on my verses, and Jacquees just happened to pull up to the studio and lay down the perfect hook. I didn’t even plan for him to be on it, but it spoke to my heart and the emotion I had on the song. There was a point where I almost cried listening it back.”

The record  appears on Dreezy’s Big Dreez, which was released back in January. Jacquees is slated to release his forthcoming album, King of R&B,  on Nov. 8.

Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame 2020 Nominees Include Notorious B.I.G., Whitney Houston

The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame has announced its nominees for the class of 2020, and Christopher "The Notorious B.I.G." Wallace and Whitney Houston are among the nominees.

Among this year's 16 nominees, nine are first-time ballots: Wallace, Houston, Pat Benatar, Dave Matthews Band, The Doobie Brothers, Motörhead, Soundgarden, T. Rex, and Thin Lizzy. The other seven are attempting to land in the hall after previous tries: Rufus featuring Chaka Khan, Kraftwerk, Judas Priest, Depeche Mode, Nine Inch Nails, MC5 and Todd Rundgren.

With the requirement of releasing your first commercial recording at least 25 years prior, Biggie has been named a nominee in his first year of eligibility. If inducted, he will be the second rapper to join the hall, after 2Pac's induction in 2017.

Ballots are distributed through a panel of more than 1,000 voters - historians, music industry insiders, and previous inductees. Fans can have an impact as well. Billboard reports that from Oct. 15 through Jan. 10, 2020 at 11:59 pm ET, fans can go to Google and search “Rock Hall Fan Vote” or any nominee’s name plus “vote” to cast a ballot with Google, vote at or at the Museum itself in Cleveland. The five artists who receive the most fan votes comprise a fans’ ballot that will be tallied along with the others to determine the 2020 inductees.

The class of inductees will be announced on January 2020, and the 35th annual induction ceremony will be held in the hall's home of Cleveland, Ohio on May 2, 2020.

Nominees for the hall must have released their first commercial recording 25 years before the year of the induction. The hall's website also states: "Besides demonstrating unquestionable musical excellence and talent, inductees will have had a significant impact on the development, evolution, and preservation of rock & roll."

The Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame inductees from 2019 were Janet Jackson, Radiohead, Stevie Nicks, Roxy Music, Def Leopard, The Cure, and The Zombies.
