French Montana Launches Two-Year Las Vegas Residency

"I look forward to this global residency and a new place to call home in both these cities."

French Montana is the latest rapper to land a residency in Las Vegas. The "No Stylist" artist reportedly kicked off his two-year residency in Sin City's Drai's Beachclub Nightclub on Feb. 3.

Montana is also set to carry out a residency at Drai's chain nightclub in Dubai. "It has been amazing performing in Dubai and Las Vegas over the years -- the vibe and crowd is always electric. I look forward to this global residency and a new place to call home in both these cities," the rapper said in a statement. 

Drai's owner Victor Drai said that the nightclub is excited to host the rapper at its international locations. "We are thrilled to have French Montana join our outstanding cast of resident artists. We know his style and energy will light up the Drai’s LIVE stage and deliver our guests unforgettable shows," Drai stated.

As previously noted, French is just one of many rappers who has landed a Las Vegas residency. Earlier this year, Cardi B announced that she would be performing for an extended stay at the Palms Casino Resort. G-Eazy also has a residency at KAOS Nightclub.

Kareem "Biggs" Burke Launches New Music Company, Signs First Artist

After nearly a 15-year hiatus from the music industry, Kareem "Biggs" Burke is back with a new music company called Circle of Success. To kick the newly-launched business off right, Burke has already announced his first signee, Brooklyn-based artist, SAINt JHN.

Circle of Success is a management company that oversees musicians. In an interview with Billboard on Feb. 19, Biggs discussed his new venture and artist.  "The night [Roc Nation co-founder Tyran Smith], played a preview of SAINt JHN's new album, I drove home listening to Collection One and had an immediate sonic connection to his music," Burke said.

The Roc-A-Fella cofounder also addressed his new company on Instagram, noting that it was his first time backing an artist since Kanye West nearly 20 years ago. "The last 2 projects I’ve done was College Dropout and Late Registration," he wrote. "After such a long time away I’ve decided to jump back in with someone who I believe will be equally as impactful and change the game and be a HUGE brand with the music being the core of the business. @saintjhn made the decision easy for me because it’s very rare you come across talent like his. I’m BACK!!!!"

SAINt JHN is a singer-songwriter and rapper. He has previously written songs for Usher, Jidenna, and others. He also released his first album under his current moniker in Mar. 2018, entitled Collection One.

Be on the look out for what's to come from Biggs' Circle of Success company and SAINt JHN.

Meek Mill Responds To Comedian Michael Rapaport's Critique

While Meek Mill's pregame performance at the NBA All-Star game on Sunday (Feb. 17) may have been praised by many on Twitter, there was one person who was not impressed by the Philadelphia rapper's appearance. Comedian/actor Michael Rapaport used his Twitter account to critique Mill, but the latter didn't hold his tongue back either.

"Aye @michaelrapaport don't ever use the word trash when you speaking on nothing from our culture unless you tryna get trashed," Meek wrote. "#2 who gave you authorization to be speaking on us? #3 what you charging now?"

A couple of tweets after his first response to Rapaport, the "Going Bad" rapper posted a picture with the New York City native who he claims "wanted a selfie" with him.

Me:ayo yo who this? Anonymous: I think it’s the guy from white men can jump? Him: meek you so fire you give me that feeling what hip hop is missing ima fan “can I get a selfie”? Hurry up go head 🤦🏾‍♂️ pic.twitter.com/GJoMZotqG9

The tweets that got Mill fired up by the 48-year-old entertainer featured references about the rapper's previous beef with Drake and his, in Rapaport's opinion, incapability to rap on beat.

"Where I'm from, if you get dragged by DRAKE & don't respond you're & always will be WACK," Rapaport started.

Where I’m from, if you get dragged by DRAKE & don’t respond you’re & always will be WACK.

Rico Nasty Teams Up With Zack Fox To Release Meme Filled Video For "Sandy"

Rico Nasty might not appear in her new video, but the memes will make you stay anyway.

Over the weekend, the rapper and rage connoisseur dropped a music video her new track "Sandy." Directed by comedian Zack Fox, the Kenny Beats produced tune brings out the best in Rico as she enjoys her warranted glow-up while comparing her lifted moments to Spongebob Squarepants' other bestie, Sandy Cheeks. “Smoking out the bowl like a b***h named Sandy / I’m original that’s why the b***hes can’t stand me.”

Her chemistry with Kenny Beats has always been strong (listen to "Trust Issues), but Zack's varied selection of memes will take you back to the days of lurking on Failblog before memes were a popular Internet snack.

In addition to releasing tracks like “Big D**k Energy,” and “Roof,” the Brooklyn native dropped Countin Up, a documentary powered by The Fader to highlight her journey in the music industry and motherhood.

Check out the "Sandy" video up top and the Countin Up documentary below.
