As DJ Khaled would say…Another One! Jay-Z drops another music video/short film from the Grammy-nominated “4:44” album that is now available to the masses on Youtube after premiering on his TIDAL streaming service.
“Family Feud” stars Jay-Z alongside Beyonce and Blue Ivy, with tons of cameos from the likes of Michael B. Jordan, Omari Hardwick, Thandie Newton, America Ferreria, Brie Larson, Niecy Nash and Rosario Dawson.
There has been some backlash from those in the Catholic community who feel the video is “gratuitous” and “exploitive.” Nevertheless the video shows Jay confessing his infidelities to Preistess Bey in a stunning creative visual piece.
WATCH HERE and let us know what you think….

A Los Angeles County superior court denied Emmis Radio a preliminary injunction to prevent Top 40/Rhythmic KPWR morning star Big Boy (real name: Kurt Alexander) from crossing the street to work at iHeartMedia Urban KRRL until completion of trial in the matter. The court lifted a February 10th temporary restraining order.
The ruling stems from a breach of contract suit (EMMIS RADIO, LLC v. KURT ALEXANDER, a/k/a “BIG BOY”) in which Emmis is seeking millions of dollars in damages. In response to the new ruling, Emmis issued the following statement:
“While Emmis is disappointed with the Court’s ruling and will evaluate our legal options, we are pleased with the Court’s indication that damages are an available remedy at trial. Emmis remains resolute in continuing to protect our legal rights and committed to the continued success of POWER 106.”
Word has it that Big’s first show on The Real 92.3 will be March 9th. Congrats Big! We can’t wait to hear you back on air!
The beef between Tyga and Drake popped back up last night after Drizzy released his surprise project, If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late, which included some shots at Tyga on the track “6PM in New York.” The sequence in particular, “I heard lil homie talking reckless in Vibe, quite a platform you chose you shoulda kept it inside, oh you tried, it’s so childish calling my name on the world stage, you need to act your age and not your girl’s age.” This not only references Tyga’s comments about Drake to Vibe, which started the beef in the first place, but also Tyga’s ongoing relationship with Kylie Jenner, who is currently 17.
Tyga obviously didn’t take this lightly, as he took to his Twitter account to go at Drake, while calling him “weak,” a “bi**h,” and accusing him of running from a fight with Chris Brown. Tyga has since deleted the tweet, but someone was able to get a screenshot beforehand, which you can view below.
So…Drake made the decision to pull a Beyonce last night and drop and secretly drop a new album/mixtape last night. The rapper sent social media into a frenzy just after midnight when he tweeted a link to the project, entitled ‘If You’re Reading This Its Too Late’ on iTunes.
The new album features 17 new songs – some of which have already debuted on his Soundcloud page – and features collaborations with Lil’ Wayne, Travi$ Scott, and PartyNextDoor.
“If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late” comes almost six years ago to the day that Drake released his critically acclaimed mixtape, 2009’s “So Far Gone.” Back in July last year, he announced that his next album would be titled “Views From The 6,” a reference to Toronto’s area codes, which the rapper drops throughout Too Late. It’s not yet obvious whether this latest release is that album renamed, or a stopgap until his next studio release.
