Run the Jewels Will Open For Lorde's North American Tour

Catch Lorde and Run The Jewels in a city near you.

Run the Jewels have spent this past year extensively touring, and it looks like they’ll be doing some more of that in 2018. It’s been announced that their next job will be opening for Lorde on her upcoming North American tour, which begins on March 1 at Milwaukee. Swedish singer Tove Styrke and Mitski will also join as supporting acts on select dates.

The reveal may be a bit of surprise: Run the Jewels haymaker raps and Lorde’s luscious pop don’t fit together at first glance. But Killer Mike and El-P are veterans and they’ve made themselves comfortable in various settings, including an opening gig for Jack White’s 2015 Madison Square Garden performance. Read their dates with Lorde below.

Dave East Thinks “Old Town Road” Is “Super Wack”

Don’t expect to see Dave East sporting a cowboy hat and listening to Lil Nas X’s hit, “Old Town Road.” The New Yorker didn’t hold back while offering up his honest opinion of the song.

“This f**king 'Old Town Road' s**t is f**kin’ wack,” the rapper said in a video posted on his Instagram story that began circulating the 'net Wednesday (April 18). “I don’t know what the f**k is going on with hip-hop, with rap. I ain’t no hater man but that s**t is wack with a cape on it. It’s super wack.”

Dave East says “Old Town Road” is “wack”...do y’all agree? 👇🎶🤔 @DaveEast pic.twitter.com/npW1gKmnfe

Despite being removed from Billboard's country charts for not embracing enough country music elements, the Billy Ray Cyrus-assisted remix to “Old Town Road,” pushed its way to No. 1 on the Billboard singles charts. The song also scored 143 million streams in a week, breaking a previous record held by Drake.

As his popularity continues to grow, Lil Nas X wants to move past the country music drama. "I didn't want it to get to that point where it was more popular because of controversy than the song itself," he recently told the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.

In response to East’s comments, the music newcomer reportedly tweeted that he’s “not mad” at the rapper. “Just [an] oh well moment,” he supposedly wrote in a post that was later deleted.

Fans of the song were fare less diplomatic in reacting to the critique, while others defended East for simply sharing his opinion.

Peep some of the reactions below.

Nah Dave East really got on here with ZERO HIT RECORDS OF HIS OWN and tried to hate on a nigga who might fuck around and go diamond on his first swing. Literally some hater shit if I ever saw it. The worst shit about it is that the song not even rap it’s country (on purpose) LOL https://t.co/5jaGpcsiHD

Officials Name Tekashi 6ix9ine Affiliate Shooter In 2018 Barclays Shooting

Newly released documents from Tekashi 6ix9ine’s ongoing racketeering case have revealed more information about the rapper and his crew’s criminal history. According to the docs, the government has reportedly identified the “shooter” for the Nine Trey Gansta Bloods as Fuguan "Fubanger" Lovick.

Lovick is one of the six remaining defendants in the case (five have already pleaded guilty). Authorities suggest Lovick was the shooter in the incident that occurred at the Barclays Center during Adrien Broner’s fight in April 2018. Previous reports alleged that 6ix9ine’s crew got into an altercation with Casanova’s posse, which resulted in shots being fired.

"In addition to the surveillance video, which shows the defendant discharging a firearm inside the Barclays Center, cooperating witnesses will testify about the defendant’s role in Nine Trey, in particular as a shooter for the gang who almost always carried a firearm," the legal documents say.

In Mar. 2019, Lovick filed a motion to have his charges dismissed. He stated that his initial arrest for a traffic stop, which led to the discovery of a firearm, was illegal. On Wednesday (April 17), the government filed a memorandum defending the search.

Lovick's next hearing is set for April 30.

Justin Bieber Blasts Laura Ingraham Over Nipsey Hussle Comments

Justin Bieber is slamming Fox News anchor, Laura Ingraham, over her divisive comments about the late Nipsey Hussle.

"Absolutely disgusting what you did on national television," Bieber wrote in an Instagram post on Thursday (April 18). "How dare you laugh in the face of a person who has passed on? Doesn't matter who it is. But disrespecting someone's who was a pillar in the community and did right by people?"

He added: "Did you not think about the family who just lost a loved one and now have to see you mock him on national television It’s absurd and you should be fired period."

Bieber's criticism comes shortly after  T.I. and The Game slammed Ingraham on their social media accounts. “WE ALL GET OUR TURN TO LIVE THROUGH OUR OWN PERSONAL TRAGEDY... and watch how many people dance in the streets, laugh and crack distasteful inappropriate jokes when it’s YOUR TURN!!!! Karma is constant & the laws of reciprocity ARE IN ORDER," T.I. wrote in a post on Instagram.

Nip was a hero to the Los Angeles community, a business owner, and rapper, who was killed on Mar. 30. His passing caused an outpour of responses from the music and California communities.

Unfortunately, Ingraham did not do her homework before getting on her April 12 show to poke fun at Hussle’s funeral. She highlighted his song, “FDT,” which is short for “F**k Donald Trump,” as a way to justify why Nip shouldn’t be so beloved.

Ingraham has not responded to the recent call to action. Check out all of the reactions below.
