Young M.A Makes Porn Debut, Cardi Goes GOld, Nicki Teases New Single, Sarfaree Robbed on Camera, T.I New SHow and What the Hell are Rap Snacks?
Young M.A. made a reemergence to the music scene with her new single and video “Praktice” which aims to put her back on top. However, the “Ooouuu” rap star is dabbling into the world of skin flicks, and made her directorial debut with Pornhub.
M.A. hops behind the camera to direct all-female production The Gift, which features her music as the backdrop. In a behind the scenes trailer from the set of movie, M.A. breaks down her vision and involvement (seen in the video above).
Cardi B debut album Invasion Of Privacy was always expected to debut at the top spot of the Billboard charts but initial projections may not have taken her reach into effect. The first reports of the Bronx rapper's sales projections saw her moving between 170,000 to 200,000 equivalent album units in its first week with 45,000 to 55,000 pure sales among them.
Nicki Minaj has been M.I.A. from the music scene for some time (aside from her star turn on Migos’ “Motorsport” alongside Cardi B), but it looks like we’ll finally be finding out what she’s been so hard at work creating very soon. Only minutes ago, the self-declared “generous queen” of hip-hop posted a pair of single covers to her Instagram, teasing the release of both projects at 1PM EST Thursday (April 12).
The first cover for “Barbie Tingz” features Nicki in a Victorian-era ball gown, surrounded by masked, similarly-costumed women. The second, “Chun-Li,” depicts a closeup of Nicki clad in a Fendi ensemble with her hair pulled up into the iconic Street Fighter character’s signature ox-horn bun style.
So the other day I’m on instagram where I see Master P put up a post and in the caption he said “build a brand”. So I click it thinking he was gonna drop some jewels about branding but all he talked about was some damn rap chips. So I kept scrolling. Few days later I’m shopping for chips and guess what I see? Those damn rap chips. Didn’t realize there was sooo many. Trina has cheese puffs, fabulous had deli cheddar, lil boosie Louisa heat, Migos dabbin flavors with ranch, lil yachty with the hot cheese fries, Fetty Wap with the honey jalapeño and Romeo with the honey BBQ.
The Founder gathered together $40,000 to start Rap Snacks, and in his first meeting with a distributor he sold 800 cases, which sold out in two hours. “I kinda knew then, hey, I might have something here,” Lindsay says. Rap Snacks grew into a $5 million business, but temporarily plateaued due to the smaller size of the bags, which wasn’t as profitable for its producers. Laying low for around five years, Lindsay worked as a brand manager for rapper and fellow Philadelphian Meek Mill, which provided him with deeper insight into the power of the artist. The relaunch nine months ago meant Rap Snacks now produce larger bags and sell for a higher price, and so are more “user friendly” for manufacturers.
With product located in about 40 different cities around the U.S. and a plan in place to establish a partnership with 7/11 in the next two to three months, Rap Snacks now operates out of Atlanta, or as Lindsay describes the city, the current “mecca of hip-hop music.”
