so i’m sitting here in the studio wit my niggas, thinking about everything that’s happened in the last two years and i always end up writing these long ass captions but fuck it. my new album, east atlanta love letter, is out and i hope you guys enjoy it. this is a continuation of a story i started two years ago and to even be talking about a second project is a blessing. i don’t have any expectations, i didn’t make this for any awards (but y’all are welcome to nominate a nigga 😂), i just did what came natural with the help of my amazing friends who happen to be producers. the only thing i think of everyday i wake up is making music that encourages people to feel and grow and communicate. i want to thank my daughter who can’t read this, but everything i do is for or inspired by you. i want to lead by example and leave behind the story of a father who not only loved you, but loved what he did, and served a purpose bigger than himself. i came a long fucking way from having nothing and i will never take it for granted. there’s so many people i want to thank but i don’t want to miss anyone. you all inspire me. let’s take this shit as far as we can. #eastatlantaloveletter 💌 link in bio

Cardi B Stands Trial In New "Press" Music Video

Cardi B is taking major risks in her new music video. The Bronx native released the visuals for her latest single, "Press" on Wednesday (June 26), and she managed to fit a murder trial and choreographed, naked sequence all into a three-minute video.

The Jora Frantzis-directed video appears to open with Cardi committing a heinous crime. She then finds herself being interrogated by police and standing trial. That's when things start getting interesting. As she stands before a jury in an all-white outfit, the video also cuts to another scene where a visibly, nipple-less Cardi and her minions dance in the street. By the end of the video, Cardi makes one final order, which results in a courtroom full of dead people.

Interestingly enough, Cardi is currently dealing with legal issues in her real life. The rapper recently pleaded not guilty to allegedly ordered a hit on two bartenders at a New York strip club last year. Let's hope that case doesn't end like the one in this video.

Watch the visuals for "Press" above.

Eminem's Father Marshall Bruce Mathers Jr. Dies At Age 67

Eminem's biological father, Marshall Bruce Mathers Jr., has passed away, TMZ reports. He was reportedly 67 years old at the time of his death.

It is unclear when Mathers passed away at this time. TMZ reports Mathers died in his home near Fort Wayne, Indiana after suffering from an apparent heart attack.

Eminem's mother, Debbie reportedly married Mathers Jr. when she was 15 and he was 22. They had Em two years later. Shortly after, the couple reportedly split, leaving Eminem and his mom to move in with her family in Detroit while Mathers moved to California.

Eminem has been very vocal about his broken relationship with his father. He frequently rapped about him on songs like "My Name Is" and "Cleanin' Out My Closet." The rapper also opened up about his dad in previous interviews, saying that he wrote several letters to him and attempted to call him, but never heard back from him.

In 2002, Bruce published a letter addressed to his son in The Daily Mirror, explaining why he left his family. He claimed Em's mother drove him away.

Eminem has not commented on the passing of his father.

Mary J. Blige Talks Life After Divorce: "I'm Happy With Myself"

Mary J. Blige has no more time for pain or drama. Following her recent career high – being honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2019 BET Awards – MJB is now opening up about her personal life and how she is embracing life as a single woman.

In a new interview with People, Blige got candid about her public divorce from her former manager and spouse, Kendu Isaacs. She revealed that despite all of the drama that ensued after she filed for divorce in 2016, she has learned to be "very content" and "happy with myself."

"I learned to be happy with just Mary, just enjoying my own company, me by myself most of the time. I’m grateful," she added.

While Mary has only officially been a single woman since June 2018, she unveiled that a lot of potential suitors have been lining up to get to know her. "There’s a lot," she said when asked about the men vying love. "But I’m very selective. I’ve been in a bad relationship. So if it’s not worth it, it’s not worth it."

In the meantime, MJB suggests she is just trying "to keep my mind positive" and focus on the positives. "I stay working out, I try to eat right and treat people right," she continued. "I have fun too, don’t get it twisted, I go out with my friends, I laugh, I joke, I have wine. I do all of that."

She added: "It’s not easy, it’s hard doing the right thing all the time, but if this is going to keep me out of trouble, I choose this. I don’t let anything get the best of me."
