Solange Announces "When I Get Home, A Special Album Experience" Across Houston

Solange is keeping things full circle by hosting "an experience" for her latest album across her hometown. 

In addition to the release of her new album When I Get Home, Solange has paired the project with a "special experience" across Houston.

Announced Friday (Mar. 1), the Grammy-winning artist announced a series of sessions that will pair with her new album. Kicking off in Houston’s Third Ward on Mar. 3, it's presumed that visual aspects will be presented. The singer has teased a few visuals on Instagram, Twitter as well as her BlackPlanet page to tease themes behind When I Get Home. In a press release, Solo shared how the album is an "exploration of origin."

"It asks the question how much of ourselves do we bring with us versus leave behind in our evolution," it reads. "The artist returned to Third Ward Houston to answer this."

This is heard within the collaborations of the album which include a bevy of southern legends like Scarface, Gucci Mane, Devin the Dude as well as samples from Debbie Allen and Phylicia Rashad. More collaborations include Tyler, the Creator, Chassol, Playboi Carti, Standing on the Corner, Panda Bear, The-Dream, and more.

Solange also appears to be the director of the "experience." Back in January, TMZ reported that the singer made an appearance at Houston’s SHAPE Community Center where she was filming and "keeping things lowkey."

The events will take place across Third Ward staples, bringing her vision to life.

Lil Wayne's 1999 Rap Notebook Is On Sale For $250K

If you have $250,000 laying around and fancy yourself a Lil Wayne fan then you can own his rap notebook from 1999.

Weezy was about 17 years old and part of the beloved rap group the Hot Boys when he penned his lyrics for songs "We On Fire" and "I Feel."

The owner of the notebook told TMZ he found it inside a car once owned by Cash Money. As a dealership employee, he rummaged through the backseat and located the prized possession.

Photos of the notebook show water damage, which the owner said was nearly destroyed during Hurricane Katrina.

The notebook was stored in a box in his garage and when the Category 5 storm hit, he evacuated. When he returned much of his belongings were destroyed except for the book. Moments In Time will reportedly handle the sale of the rare find.

Moments In Time has sold several hip-hop artifacts. In 2017, the company sold three pages in which the beloved rapper penned the lyrics to his classic "Dear Mama." Each page priced at $25,000. The company also sold the vehicles Biggie and Pac were killed in.

Weird flex, but okay.

Keri Hilson Says New Music Is Coming Summer 2019

Keri Hilson is making a comeback. After a lengthy hiatus, the singer announced that she will be releasing new music this summer 2019.

Hilson shared the exciting news with her fans on Instagram on Sunday (Mar. 24). "Today marks 10 years since the release of my first studio album, 'In A Perfect World,'" she wrote in the caption of a photo herself. "I didn’t mean to be gone so long, I only needed my real world to be perfect...It is now. Thank you for your patience. The wait is over. I’m ready. Summer 2019."

It's definitely been a long time coming for Keri. In Feb. 2019, the singer explained her absence from the music scene, attributing it to mental health concerns. "I've lost some pivotal characters in the process of stepping away for my wellbeing," she said at the time. "Though I was prepared for the possibility that some wouldn't understand or lose faith in me as an artist while I dealt with the trials of my life, it still hurts. But I accept the fact that some relationships have just run their course."

It's unclear whether Hilson will be coming out with a single or a full LP at this time. Stay tuned for more announcements in the months to come.

Dr. Dre Promptly Deletes IG Post Bragging About Daughter's USC Admission

Dr. Dre thought he was sharing a "Proud Dad" moment on Instagram when he posted about his daughter getting accepted into the University of Southern California, but instead, he wound up the center of social media attack.

The tech mogul's deleted post reportedly bragged about his daughter Truly Young being admitted to the university "on her own," which was a subtle joke referencing the alleged college admissions bribery scandal. "My daughter got accepted into USC all on her own," he joked. "No jail time!!!"

The college admissions bribery scandal accused a number of parents of paying more than $25 million to a fake college admissions counselor to bribe college officials and inflate test scores.

While Dr. Dre was not one of the parents named in the court case, fans reminded him that he donated a whopping $70 million to USC. The donation was made in partnership with producer Jimmy Iovine in 2013 to create the USC Jimmy Iovine and Andre Young Academy for Arts, Technology, and the Business of Innovation.

Dr. may have deleted the post, but the damage was already done. Check out a screenshot of his post below.
