French Montana's Health Facility In Uganda Unveiled

The rapper unveiled the progress that he's made in Uganda on Instagram. 

French Montana doesn't talk about it, he is about it. VIBE's latest digital cover star has been taking action to help people in Africa, and the "blood, sweat, and tears" has finally paid off. The rapper shared on Instagram on Wednesday (July 26), that the health facility he helped build in Uganda is almost finished, and it looks amazing.

French helped build the facility in collaboration with The Weeknd.  The "Unforgettable" artist posted a video on his social media account, showing off the progress made thus far. According to a spokeswoman, who is assumed to be one of the staff coordinators with Mama Hope, the building will serve as the staff quarters for Ugandan doctors, nurses and medical staff will be available to live. The video also showed an extended building where medical workers will be able to provide health care to more than 286,000 locals.

"WOW!! I love hip-hop and the platform it gave me. Things like this make all the blood sweat and tears worth it," the Moroccan rapper captioned the video on Instagram. "I really had to stop talking and take action. Still amazed at the process! I can't take all the credit shout out to @[email protected] and my brother @theweeknd and the beautiful people of Uganda."

In addition to French's humanitarian work, the rapper recently dropped his latest studio album, Jungle Rules. The album includes his hit single, "Unforgettable," featuring Rae Sremmurd's Swae Lee, and special appearances by Quavo, Pharrell, The Weeknd, Future, and more.

Shout out to French Montana for trying to make the world a better place. Check out his video on Instagram below.

Is Chris Brown Having A Son?

Is Chris Brown having another baby? According to sources close to the entertainer, the answer is yes.

TMZ reports the 30-year-old singer will welcome his newest bundle of joy in the fall with ex-girlfriend Ammika Harris, who is allegedly pregnant with a boy. This will be Harris' first child and Brown's first boy. The Indigo artist is already a proud papa to his 5-year-old daughter Royalty who he had with Nia Guzman.

While Harris and Brown aren't together, the two are reportedly co-existing well and appear to have a handle on their forthcoming co-parenting.

News the former couple was expecting made its way to the Internet in June. However, fans raised a suspicious digital eyebrow when Brown commented on one of Harris' photos a month prior.

"Yup," he wrote. "BM bad."

BM being short-hand for "baby mama."

The same company that owns Monopoly, G.I. Joe, Transformers, Power Rangers, and thee Mr.Potato Head now owns the famous (and infamous) west coast record label Death Row Records.

Hasbro Toy Company purchased Entertainment One multimedia company, which also reportedly has a music division. According to Rolling Stone, E One's music label earned more than $30 million in 2019's first quarter. Six years ago, Entertainment One purchased Death Row's catalog for $280 million.

In a statement, Hasbro CEO Brian Goldner expressed his excitement about owning the beloved and respected record label.

“The acquisition of eOne adds beloved story-led global family brands that deliver strong operating returns to Hasbro’s portfolio and provides a pipeline of new brand creation driven by family-oriented storytelling,” he said.

While Death Row records has gone down in history as one of hip-hop's most successful and influential labels, it's co-founder Marion "Suge" Knight has fallen from grace.

In October 2018, Knight was sentenced to 28 years in prison for the 2015 hit-and-run death of Terry Carter, which was caught on surveillance. CNN reports he faced life in prison for one count of attempted murder after Knight maimed Cle "Bone" Sloan with his truck. Sloan survived the incident.
