The longtime member of Canadian rock band The Evaporators reunited with the Based God for an interview and a gift giving session --- as he normally does. Nardwuar then recalled the story of their first interview at the annual South by Southwest music festival in Austin.

“He was doing a game with Puff Daddy. I said, Lil B will you talk to me? It was after a game and Lil B’s manager and turned on the headlights for his car to allow the interview to happen,” explained Nardwuar.

Lizzo Recreates 'Sister Act 2' For Performance At MTV Movie & TV Awards

Lizzo brought us back to the '90s with her recreation of the iconic "Joyful Joyful" scene from Sister Act 2 for her performance at the 2019 MTV Movie & TV Awards.

The Cuz I Love U musician performed her hit "Juice" on a stage solo, as a backstage director told her backup dancers offstage to "get rid" of their church robes, in an homage to the 1993 film starring Whoopi Goldberg and Lauryn Hill. Throughout her energetic performance, the dancers showed their skills, and Lizzo even led the audience in an interpolation of "Oh Happy Day."

Lizzo's major label debut LP was released earlier this year to a positive response. She told Rolling Stone that staying authentic has helped her grow as an artist, and that her album is a reflection of her personality.

“When I have to make decisions, I always choose honesty and I always stay true to myself, because I know at the end of the day that is what’s going to remain,” she reportedly said. “That is what’s going to be the legend: That I was true to myself and that I honored every person by staying truthful to them.”

Watch her wonderful performance above.

DJ Khaled's 'Father Of Ashad' Has Been Certified Gold

DJ Khaled has struck gold with his new album, literally.

The producer's 12th album Father of Ashad has been certified gold, selling an equivalent of 500,000 records. In a press release to VIBE, Khaled's team says the album is the “the fastest full-length record to be minted gold this year”  by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).

The RIAA also confirmed the news on their site, adding it to its most recent gold and platinum honors for the month of June.

The album is also one of only three full-length projects of 2019 to be certified gold. The others include Tyga's Legendary and Sebastian Yatra's FANTASÍA. 

Khaled's streams from the album reportedly exceed half-a-billion, with singles like "You Stay" with J Balvin and Meek Mill as well as "Jealous" with Chris Brown heating up radio.

The producer was a heap of drama last week when his sportsmanship was questioned after he lost the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 to Tyler, The Creator's critically-acclaimed album, IGOR. Both projects were tied to fan merchandise with Tyler selling IGOR lawn signs and Khaled, cases of energy drinks. After Khaled's album debuted on the chart after Tyler's, rumors swirled that he would take legal action against the publication.

While there seems to be no proof of a lawsuit, Khaled did celebrate on social media the album's No. 1 position on the Hip-Hop/R&B Albums chart.

The Hamiltones Gift The World With Debut EP And Fresh Cover Of "Old Town Road"

Grammy-nominated viral group, The Hamiltones have finally released their debut EP, Watch The Ton3s and it has that raw, original R&B sound.

They first gained notoriety as Anthony Hamilton's backup vocalists and for adding their own funky twist when covering songs. Now they've released their long-awaited EP with features from Phonte of Little Brother.

The six-track EP is a beautifully orchestrated project with songs for every emotion. The Hamiltones provided their fans with heart-wrenching love songs and well-written harmonies that showcase the voices that got them famous in the first place. Watch The Ton3s is not just about listening to music it's about experiencing it and the group executed that well through the songs on the project. 2E describes it as being feel-good music. “We can switch up every now and then, but this is a soul/R&B EP -- feel-good music."

Although the group has made it to the big leagues, in terms of releasing their own original content, they're still funneling out covers and making them go viral as well.

Almost two weeks on June 1, The Hamiltones dropped their cover of Lil Nas X's "Old Town Road" and since it's already racked up three million views on Facebook.

The trio consisting of 2E, J.Vito and Tony Lelo are currently on tour with future performances in Chicago and in New Orleans for the Essence Festival on July 5.
