Tyler, The Creator Announces Tour Featuring Jaden Smith, Goldlink, Blood Orange

Tyler, The Creator is riding high off of the release of his fifth LP, IGOR. The aforementioned album is the California native’s first project to top the Billboard 200, and it turns out he was just getting started.

The “Earfquake” MC just announced he would be embarking on the IGOR TOOR, which will feature artists Jaden Smith, Blood Orange and Goldlink. The show kicks off in August during Tyler’s appearance at the Bumbershoot Festival in Seattle, and concludes in late-October at the NRG Arena in Houston.

Even more exciting- the IGOR TOOR marks the first time Tyler will be performing in the U.K. after previously being banned a few years ago due to his lyrics. U.K.’s Home Office stated that his earlier musical content mirrors “behaviours unacceptable in the UK.”

“Man london kids was blasting IGOR in the streets and stores and a f**king train station yall crazy i love it, feels like the early days before weirdos were sue happy," Tyler wrote on Twitter in response to the news of U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May’s resignation a few weeks ago. "Sucks it was too wild ( out of excitment (sic)) but i am coming back trust me."

Lizzo Reacts To Hillary Clinton's "Truth Hurts" Tweet

Lizzo’s “Truth Hurts” may be over two years old, but it’s proven to be her most impactful hit yet. The track gained steam after being featured in Netflix’s Someone Great, and currently sits at No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100. It also garnered the attention of one of the biggest names in politics.

A video Lizzo posted on Twitter features Hillary Clinton and other former Presidential hopefuls standing and saluting the flag. While we may expect the National Anthem to play, “Truth Hurts” blares over the speaker instead.

Shortly after the video was posted, Hillary Clinton (or at least a very in-touch intern of hers) replied, tweeting out the song’s popular lyrics “I just took a DNA test, turns out…”

“@hillaryclinton just confirmed Truth Hurts is 100% the new national anthem... have a great day,” Lizzo wrote on Instagram.

The musician opened up about practically quitting music after “Truth Hurts” failed to take off initially.

“I remember thinking, ‘If I quit music now, nobody would notice. This is my best song ever, and nobody cares,’” she told PEOPLE. “I was like, ‘F**k it, I’m done.’ And a lot of people rallied; my producer, my publicist and my family, they were like, ‘Just keep going because this is the darkest before the dawn.'”

She also recently teased a remix to the song with DaBaby.

"I just took a DNA test, turns out..."

Drake Faces Lawsuits Over 'Nice For What' And 'In My Feelings'

A rapper by the name of Sam Skully is suing both Drake and Big Freedia for alleged use of his beat for the songs “In My Feelings” and “Nice For What.”

Per TMZ, Skully (real name Samuel Nicholas III) claims that a portion of his 2000’s song “Roll Call” was used in the popular song “In My Feelings.” He also alleges that “Nice For What,” which features Big Freedia, uses another one of his stolen beats.

“In the docs, Sam Skully claims he published the beat on a CD he released in New Orleans way back in 2000, but says he didn't know his work had been stolen until years later ... when Drake and Big Freedia released songs that started climbing the charts,” reports the site.

“Nice For What” debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2018, as did “In My Feelings.” The latter track remained there for 10 weeks and was associated with the highly-popular “In My Feelings” challenge.

Skully is also reportedly suing Asylum Records, Cash Money Records and Republic Records for damages.
