Billboard, Memes, and New York: Cardi B Says She ls Taking Her Time With Her Debut Album Until "It's Right" 03 @balleralert Cardi B Says She Is Taking Her Time With Her Debut Album Until “It’s Right” _ blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Months ago, reports surfaced that New York superstar CardiB was nervous about the release of her debut album. Initially, the Bronx rapper had been eyeing an October release date, but as her smash hit, “Bodak Yellow,” continued to climb the charts, it became hard for her to select the songs that could top it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I wanted to drop next month,” she said at the time. “Every single time I think I got all the 10 songs I’m like, I’m buggin. These ain’t it. It’s just like, damn I’m competing with myself. I’m competing with the goddamn No. 2 record,” she said of the record that has since peaked at No. 1. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Now though, after October came and went, Cardi B says she is in no rush to release her debut project. As she continues to ride the wave of the massive success of her singles and features, which have all topped Billboard’s Hot R&B-Hip-Hop Songs chart, she revealed that there is a lot of pressure on her forthcoming project, so she wants to make sure “it’s right.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I have a lot of pressure on me,” the rapper tweeted. “I have songs stashed up. I just don’t think they qualified for my album. Sometimes I think is ready sometimes I think it’s not so I’m going to take my time till it’s right.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Until then though, fans can vibe out to any of the Bronx rapper’s many hits, from “Bodak Yellow” to “Motorsport” to “No Limit.”

Michael Jordan Donates $7 Million To Launch Two Medical Clinics in Charlotte, NC – blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Charlotte Hornets owner and NBA legend, MichaelJordan, is donating $7 million to fund the launch of two medical clinics in North Carolina. The Novant Health Michael Jordan Family Clinics, which will be built in north and northwest Charlotte, will be one of the largest gifts ever from the superstar. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Through my years of working with Novant Health, I have been impressed with their approach and their commitment to the community,” Jordan said in a release on Monday. “It is my hope that these clinics will help provide a brighter and healthier future for the children and families they serve.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A spokesperson for the NBA great spoke with The Associated Press, on Monday, to further discuss the donation. He said Jordan “feels so great about being able to impact the Charlotte community and help people really deserve it. Michael and Novant are really excited about this project.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to the Charlotte Observer, the project came about after Jordan learned of a “2014 study from Harvard and the University of California at Berkeley that found poor children in Charlotte have the worst odds of those in any big U.S. city to life themselves out of poverty,” Jordan’s spokesperson revealed. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Michael really wanted to do something personally, he and his family, in the North Carolina area, separate we’ve done with the Hornets.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The two clinics are expected to care for nearly “35,000 children and adults who don’t have access to primary or preventative care,” projected to open in 2020. According to ESPN, the clinics will allow patients to receive “affordable, high-quality care.” They could also limit emergency room utilization, and decrease hospitalization for residents in the Charlotte area. ballerificcharity

Af, Bless Up, and Bodies : u/EyeBrowsReddit84 ld i.redd.it A three hour drive to the ocean is worth it for old man Stan. I’m worried I’ve opened a flood gate with y’all and that the hygiene discussion will never end - one of my lil homegirls text me saying imma need to start a whole new IG account on hygiene only 😩. With that said one of my followers commented today: “I’m dying😂😂😂I sent a guy into the shower once after he unzipped his pants and I caught a sniff of his sweaty HAIRY balls. I told him to clean himself and shave. He came out with bald patches and kinky patches that still stunk🤢🤢🤢”. Ok this raises two extremely important points, lemme address them in turn. (1) Some of y’all don’t know how to shower and need a full aura reboot - reset - recleanse. Go directly to Traders Joe. Buy a bottle of Dr. Bronner’s peppermint liquid wash. This shit will strip paint off cars. Turn the shower as hot as it go (UNLESS u live in the housing projects then DON’T DO THIS - project water get hot af lol I assume no responsibility for u cooking yourself.) Squirt a palm full of Dr. Bronners. Now physically violate the inside space between yo balls and yo thigh and also yo a$$ crack. Some of y’all have never since yo mama stopped bathing u actually washed this area properly. Go deep. Make it hurt a little. U feel me? Go hard. (2) For some of y’all the overall nastiness has seeped and stained into your body hair and now that body hair is a repository for stankariffic stankotry. When I said on here I shave my pits and PP some of u women got on here like “NOOOO PUBIC HAIR IS SEXY EW!” Yeah. Till u with Nasty Ned who make u vomit from his pube hair smell. Hand Ned a razor and a bar of soap. Ned, shave it all from the neck down. It’s rebirthing time. P.s. as I’ve detailed in previous posts, the Dr. Bronner’s soap is so potent that it will burn a lil bit when u pee. This isn’t an STD. This is the opening of yo PP finally being clean. Some of your bodies won’t be used to this and it will take adjustment but it will be worth it AF, I promise y’all - CLEANLINESS IS HOLINESS BLESS UP 😍😂😂😂

Donald Trump, Lawyer, and Memes: Documents Turned Over to Investigators Show Trump Had More Contact with Russia During Campaign @balleralert Documents Turned Over to Investigators Show Trump Had More Contact with Russia During Campaign -blogged by: @RaquelHarrisTV ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Associates of Donald Trump and his company just turned in documents showing they had unreported contact with Russia during the 2016 presidential campaign. Federal investigators have confiscated the documents. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ One of the instances involves Trump's personal attorney and business colleague exchanging emails weeks prior to the Republican National Convention about the lawyer possibly attending an economic conference in Russia, where elite Russian financial and government leaders would be attendance. Amongst all the names, President Vladimir Putin was included. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Another situation involved Trump's attorney, Michael Cohen, again. In 2015, Cohen received a proposal for a Moscow residential project from a company founded by a billionaire who once served in the upper house of the Russian parliament. This marks the second time for a Trump-branded Moscow project that's been delivered to the company. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, Cohen declined the invitation to the economic conference saying it would be difficult to attend so close to the GOP convention. He also rejected the Moscow building plan. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Nevertheless , the information about the interactions has been provided to congressional committees as well as special counsel Robert S. Mueller III as they investigate whether Trump associates coordinated with Russian efforts to interfere in the U.S. election, according to people familiar with the inquiries.

What's even more unique is that each album was an exclusive project from each group member. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ BigBoi's 'Speakerboxxx' was filled with the Southern hip hop influence we're used too, while also experimenting with some Funk sounds. Andre3000's 'The Love Below' was just as experimental, playing with a variety of genres and giving us vibes that range from jazz to psychedelic sounds. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ The album was an instant hit with both singles, "Hey Ya!" and "The Way You Move,” peaking at No. 1 on Billboard Hot 100. The body of work has also been certified diamond and has gone eleven times platinum by the RIAA. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ In true Outkast fashion, 'Speakerboxxx-The Love Below' is a non traditional hip-hop album, that still gives us the lyricism we love. We can always appreciate this legendary group's ability to play with sounds and experiment with genres that may have never collided with hip-hop otherwise. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ What was your favorite song from the album?
