Anaconda, Beyonce, and Billboard: Today in Hip-Hop: One Year Since the Death of Shawty Lo @balleralert Today in Hip-Hop: One Year Since the Death of Shawty Lo-blogged by @thereal__bee ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ One year ago today, the world lost Atlanta native and rapper ShawtyLo. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Born Carlos Rico Walker, Shawty Lo got his start in music in 2003 as a founding member of the rap group D4L. Alongside other group members, Fabo, Mook-B and Stoney, the group had much success with their debut album 'Down for Life' which brought us chart topping hits like 'Laffy Taffy' and 'Betcha Can't Do It Me'. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ In 2007, just two years after D4L's album release, Walker released his debut solo single 'Dey Know'. The single was an instant hit, charting in the Top 40 of the Billboard Hot 100 and earning him three Bet Hip-Hop Awards. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Walker died Sept. 21, 2016 from a car accident in Fulton County, Georgia. The accident happened around 2:20 a.m. when Walker's car went over a guardrail, hitting two trees, and catching fire. The rapper was ejected from the car and pronounced dead at the scene. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ While Walker died rather young at the age of 40, his career was impactful enough to earn him tributes from other great artists such as Beyonce, GucciMane, LilKim, Future, and many more. rip

9/11, Anaconda, and Apple: Chick-Fil-A Set to Open Five Story Location in New York City @balleralert Chick-Fil-A Set to Open Five Story Location in New York City-blogged by @thereal__bee ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ In NYC, it's either go big or go home. So in true New York fashion, ChickfilA has announced that they will be opening their biggest restaurant right in the Big Apple. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ The fast food chain revealed Monday, that their third N.Y.C. location, will be the largest location of their 2,100 restaurants across the country. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ The restaurant will be located right in the middle of the city’s Financial District. With 12,000 sq.-ft., the restaurant will consist of five levels, with floor-to-ceiling windows and rooftop seating for customers to take in the view of Manhattan. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ According to design manager Nathaniel Cates, while the location will be the franchise's tallest location, it will be quite narrow at only 15-ft. wide, but will pay homage to the events of 9-11 in a major way. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ “With the restaurant sitting under half a mile from Ground Zero and the 9-11 Memorial, Cates’ team wanted to respectfully pay homage to the significance of the location,” reads the press release. “They drew designs for the front of the building to be stacked fully with glass windows, with elements built into the façade that give a subtle impression of the Twin Towers – one on each side of the restaurant. It’s a feature that acknowledges the significance of location.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ The doors of the new location are slated to open early next year.
