YG Takes 'Stay Dangerous' On The Road For North American Tour

It's going to be CRAZY!

Compton rapper YG is taking his Stay Dangerous album on a journey through North America.

Recently announced with a brief, yet self-explanatory post on Instagram, the "Big Bank" artist detailed the 19-date show run in cities like Seattle, Philadelphia, and Atlanta. The Cali native will dedicate two separate performances in his home-state before wrapping up the tour in Reno, Nevada. The 28-year-old's Canadian fanbase will be pleased to see YG will bring his set to Toronto and Vancouver.

With the tour's existence in its early stages of arrival, there are not many details about the shenanigans expected to take place, but if the rapper's 2018 Halloween costume as Michael Jackson is any indication that he is about the theatrics, fans are in for a great show. Tickets go on sale for the available tour dates this Friday (Nov. 16).

Dreezy And Jacquees Rekindle Flames In "Love Someone" Video

Dreezy and Jacquees decided to reignite their relationship in the video for the love ballad titled, “Love Someone. ”

Directed by Jake Riley and John Lathan, the visual follows the breakup of several couples. Playing the role of a scorned lover, Dreezy decides to light her man’s car on fire with gasoline. Meanwhile, Jacquees reflects on losing his woman.

Dreezy spoke to Coveteur about the lovelorn record.

"‘Love Someone’ kind of fell in place on its own. I was in the studio working on tracks, and I wanted a real-life personal song that I could include,” Dreezy said. “I was drawing inspiration from past broken relationships on my verses, and Jacquees just happened to pull up to the studio and lay down the perfect hook. I didn’t even plan for him to be on it, but it spoke to my heart and the emotion I had on the song. There was a point where I almost cried listening to it back.”

The record appears on Dreezy’s Big Dreez, which was released back in January. Jacquees is slated to release his forthcoming album, King of R&B,  on Nov. 8.

Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame 2020 Nominees Include Notorious B.I.G., Whitney Houston

The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame has announced its nominees for the class of 2020, and Christopher "The Notorious B.I.G." Wallace and Whitney Houston are among the nominees.

Among this year's 16 nominees, nine are first-time ballots: Wallace, Houston, Pat Benatar, Dave Matthews Band, The Doobie Brothers, Motörhead, Soundgarden, T. Rex, and Thin Lizzy. The other seven are attempting to land in the hall after previous tries: Rufus featuring Chaka Khan, Kraftwerk, Judas Priest, Depeche Mode, Nine Inch Nails, MC5 and Todd Rundgren.

With the requirement of releasing your first commercial recording at least 25 years prior, Biggie has been named a nominee in his first year of eligibility. If inducted, he will be the second rapper to join the hall, after 2Pac's induction in 2017.

Ballots are distributed through a panel of more than 1,000 voters - historians, music industry insiders, and previous inductees. Fans can have an impact as well. Billboard reports that from Oct. 15 through Jan. 10, 2020 at 11:59 pm ET, fans can go to Google and search “Rock Hall Fan Vote” or any nominee’s name plus “vote” to cast a ballot with Google, vote at RockHall.com or at the Museum itself in Cleveland. The five artists who receive the most fan votes comprise a fans’ ballot that will be tallied along with the others to determine the 2020 inductees.

The class of inductees will be announced on January 2020, and the 35th annual induction ceremony will be held in the hall's home of Cleveland, Ohio on May 2, 2020.

Nominees for the hall must have released their first commercial recording 25 years before the year of the induction. The hall's website also states: "Besides demonstrating unquestionable musical excellence and talent, inductees will have had a significant impact on the development, evolution, and preservation of rock & roll."

The Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame inductees from 2019 were Janet Jackson, Radiohead, Stevie Nicks, Roxy Music, Def Leopard, The Cure, and The Zombies.
