YG Makes Fan Exit Stage Left After He Refused To Say "F**k Donald Trump"

The incident occurred at the Mala Luna Festival.

Since Donald Trump's presidency began in 2016, rapper YG has remained forthright in his opposition against Trump's tenure. YG's disdain was even recorded on his 2016 record "F**k Donald Trump" that features the late Nipsey Hussle.

Yet during San Antonio's Mala Luna festival on Saturday (Oct. 26), he invited a fan onstage during the song's airplay but kicked the unidentified person off his set because he refused to repeat the song's title.

In an interview with i-D, YG noted that he wanted Macklemore and G-Eazy on a sequel to "F**k Donald Trump."

“They’re the two biggest white rappers in the game! I’m like, if I get two of the biggest white rap dudes in the game on this ‘F**k Donald Trump’ record, that sh*t is gonna mean something,” he said. “Before Macklemore was on ‘Part 2’ he said like, ‘Good sh*t bro, that sh*t was needed,’ about the first song. So I was like, ‘Bro, you support Trump?’ and he was like ‘F**k no!’ I’m like, ‘Well look, I’m doing this remix and I want you to hop on it. It’s actually with G-Eazy.’ And he was like, ‘I got you, send that sh*t.’ That’s just the rap community. Everybody know that’s where this rap sh*t started from: talking about problems and what’s going on in inner city communities.”

Following the song's popularity, the "Go Loko" rapper also revealed the Secret Service contacted his record label and wanted to scan his album, Still Brazy, for any more lyrics referring to Trump.

“The Secret Service called in on Universal and was like, ‘Send me the lyrics to YG’s album because we gotta see what he’s talking about,’” he said in an interview with Whoo Kid. “They did the whole album. That’s why on ‘FDT’ on the album, it’s parts of the song that I had to blank out. Then on the next song ‘Blacks & Browns,’ when Sad Boy’s spitting his sh*t—he said some sh*t toward Donald Trump too—they heard that, and we had to either change it or blank it out, so we put the static noise on top of that. But yeah, it was a real situation going on…Ever since John F. Kennedy got assassinated, they can’t have any people promoting kill Trump, shoot Trump, pop Trump, all that. And we had those types of lines up in the song.”

Ty Dolla $ign Releases New Album Feat. Nicki Minaj, Roddy Ricch, Kanye West And More

After a three-year album hiatus, Ty Dolla $ign released his latest studio effort, Featuring Ty Dolla $ign, on Friday (Oct. 23).

The 25-track album features appearances from Nicki Minaj, Kid Cudi, FKA Twigs, Roddy Ricch, Jhené Aiko, Kehlani, 6lack, Young Thug, Music Soulchild, Skrillex, Quavo, Anderson Paak, Post Malone, Kanye West, and more.

Powered by previously released singles, “Ego Death,” Expensive” and By Yourself,” the new album flexes a different music muscle for the Grammy-nominated recording artists who steered clear of  making club records.

“I was intentionally trying to not make club songs [talking about] hoes and *itches and all the sh*t I used to talk about,” Ty told Vulture in a recent interview. “I was trying to, like, talk about my life, and what it is now, and really do something different with it. I got a daughter going to high school this year, and she’s paying attention, and all her friends are paying attention, so I can’t talk as crazy or do the crazy sh*t that I used to do.”

Jay Z Launches His Own Cannabis Brand

Jay Z is venturing into the world of cannabis. The  mogul officially announced the launch of his new cannabis brand, Monogram, on Friday (Oct. 23) marking his first product collaboration since becoming chief brand strategists of the Northern California-based dispensary, Caliva, last year.

“Monogram seeks to redefine what cannabis means to consumers today,” the company said in a press release. As many marijuana storefronts have implemented new rules amid the global pandemic, Monogram is also planing to launch an e-commerce sales option, “In an effort to provide a more tailored customer experience.”

Caliva and Hov opened their first Southern California storefront last year. Besides providing quality products, Hov aims to use his position at Caliva to help the formerly incarcerated (many of whom are not reaping the benefits of marijuana legalization) through advocacy, job training, and employee and workforce development.

According to the company website, Monogram uses “expert growers” to ensure that each marijuana flowers receives the “respect it deserves” in every stage of the growth process. Additionally, Monogram flowers are grown in small batches so that every plant gets “personalized attention.”
