Radio Stations Are Being Hacked To Play YG's "F**k Donald Trump"

Once again, the world is made right thanks to YG. 

Once again the American people have found a way to resist Donald Trump's presidency, and this time, they're using the radio stations to get their message across. Radio Stations around the country are reportedly being hacked to play YG and Nipsey Hussle's single "F**k Donald Trump" on repeat, BuzzFeed reports.

The first hacking reportedly went down on Monday (Jan. 31). on South Carolina's Sunny 107.9 station. Following the mishap, the station's president, Frank Patterson addressed the issue in a since-deleted statement on Facebook. "This is NOT our broadcast! We at WFBS do not take political views! The FCC and WFBS are working to fix this situation ASAP," the statement read.

South Carolina's radio wasn't the only station to be hacked though. An oldies station in San Angelo, Texas, El Jefe 96.7 in Tennessee, Mother of the Redeemer Radio 103.5 in Indiana, and Crescent Hill Radio in Louisville, Kentucky, also played YG's political track over their airwaves. The unidentified hackers reportedly gained access to the various station through a device called a Barix Extreamer, an audio transmitter that is used by each of the stations that were compromised, according to Radio Insight. The company's founder, Johannes Rietschel, also noted that the device is not supposed to be connected to the Internet, which is probably what led to the incidents. "With significant interest to take over the devices for political messages or even blackmailing, there will be more takeovers and maybe even 'hacks,'" Rietschel said.

For those who aren't familiar with YG's single, the Cali rapper released the track back in Mar. 2016, featuring explicit content aimed at the then-Republican presidential candidate. The single details certain moments in the president's campaign in which he ejected black protesters and criticized other minorities. The song also suggests that his crew and many others want to fight him. "All the ni***s in the hood wanna fight you / Surprised El Chapo ain't tried to snipe you / Surprised the Nation of Islam ain't tried to find you," he raps. Following the song's release, it quickly became a protest anthem for many and was turned into a slogan on a lot of memorabilia.

It's unclear how radio stations will attempt to combat the recent hackings. So stay tuned to your local airwaves.

Lil Wayne's 1999 Rap Notebook Is On Sale For $250K

If you have $250,000 laying around and fancy yourself a Lil Wayne fan then you can own his rap notebook from 1999.

Weezy was about 17 years old and part of the beloved rap group the Hot Boys when he penned his lyrics for songs "We On Fire" and "I Feel."

The owner of the notebook told TMZ he found it inside a car once owned by Cash Money. As a dealership employee, he rummaged through the backseat and located the prized possession.

Photos of the notebook show water damage, which the owner said was nearly destroyed during Hurricane Katrina.

The notebook was stored in a box in his garage and when the Category 5 storm hit, he evacuated. When he returned much of his belongings were destroyed except for the book. Moments In Time will reportedly handle the sale of the rare find.

Moments In Time has sold several hip-hop artifacts. In 2017, the company sold three pages in which the beloved rapper penned the lyrics to his classic "Dear Mama." Each page priced at $25,000. The company also sold the vehicles Biggie and Pac were killed in.

Weird flex, but okay.

Keri Hilson Says New Music Is Coming Summer 2019

Keri Hilson is making a comeback. After a lengthy hiatus, the singer announced that she will be releasing new music this summer 2019.

Hilson shared the exciting news with her fans on Instagram on Sunday (Mar. 24). "Today marks 10 years since the release of my first studio album, 'In A Perfect World,'" she wrote in the caption of a photo herself. "I didn’t mean to be gone so long, I only needed my real world to be perfect...It is now. Thank you for your patience. The wait is over. I’m ready. Summer 2019."

It's definitely been a long time coming for Keri. In Feb. 2019, the singer explained her absence from the music scene, attributing it to mental health concerns. "I've lost some pivotal characters in the process of stepping away for my wellbeing," she said at the time. "Though I was prepared for the possibility that some wouldn't understand or lose faith in me as an artist while I dealt with the trials of my life, it still hurts. But I accept the fact that some relationships have just run their course."

It's unclear whether Hilson will be coming out with a single or a full LP at this time. Stay tuned for more announcements in the months to come.

Dr. Dre Promptly Deletes IG Post Bragging About Daughter's USC Admission

Dr. Dre thought he was sharing a "Proud Dad" moment on Instagram when he posted about his daughter getting accepted into the University of Southern California, but instead, he wound up the center of social media attack.

The tech mogul's deleted post reportedly bragged about his daughter Truly Young being admitted to the university "on her own," which was a subtle joke referencing the alleged college admissions bribery scandal. "My daughter got accepted into USC all on her own," he joked. "No jail time!!!"

The college admissions bribery scandal accused a number of parents of paying more than $25 million to a fake college admissions counselor to bribe college officials and inflate test scores.

While Dr. Dre was not one of the parents named in the court case, fans reminded him that he donated a whopping $70 million to USC. The donation was made in partnership with producer Jimmy Iovine in 2013 to create the USC Jimmy Iovine and Andre Young Academy for Arts, Technology, and the Business of Innovation.

Dr. may have deleted the post, but the damage was already done. Check out a screenshot of his post below.
