Air Jordan, Instagram, and Life: Asahd Khaled Lands A Deal With Jordan Brand @balleralert Asahd Khaled Lands A Deal With Jordan Brand - blogged by @lanaladonna ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Someone is following in his father’s footsteps early! It has been announced that AsahdKhaled, DJKhaled’s firstborn, and star since birth (literally) has officially signed a deal with Air Jordan. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ At just one-years-old, Baby Khaled is the face of Jordan’s first kid's collaboration for apparel. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Ok world here I come,” captioned Asahd on his Instagram page, announcing his major deal. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to Khaled’s caption in an IG post, the collection will include a range of colorful and sporty tops, bottoms, hats, and socks that bring out the style of Asahd through the lens of the Jordan brand. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In the same caption, Khaled expressed how proud he was of his son. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Today is a proud day for me not only as a father but for the young kid that still lives inside my heart. I was a kid when I was introduced to the iconic Jordan sneaker. It represented everything I wanted to be aka a winner and the flyest kid on the block. So imagine the joy I felt knowing that my son Asahd Khaled would have the opportunity to have his own partnership with the Jordan brand. @wethebestmusic” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I think it’s safe to say that Asahd is the busiest baby Hollywood’s seen. From executive producer of his first album, ‘Grateful,’ that went platinum, to an award show performer, and now this? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I guess that’s the life you live when ‘you the best.’ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Congratulations Asahd!

Guns, Kendrick Lamar, and Memes: Kendrick Lamar Said to Be Banning the Use of Cell Phones and Digital Cameras From His Concerts @balleralert DAMN KENDRICK LAMAR RIAA CERTIFIED DOUBLE PLATINUM Kendrick Lamar Said to Be Banning the Use of Cell Phones and Digital Cameras From His Concerts - blogged by: @ashleytearra ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you’re planning on attending a KendrickLamar concert, you might want to read the rules first. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to The Guardian, the Grammy award-winning lyricist will now be prohibiting the use of cell phones at his live performances. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Reportedly, the new policy was established in order to “protect Kendrick’s valuable brand and ensure that the appetite for tickets remains keen.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Additionally, it is also said that professional photography won’t be allowed either. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, this stipulation doesn’t necessarily come as a surprise. Cell phone and digital camera restrictions at concerts aren’t unusual. This actually happens quite often. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Alicia Keys, Guns N’ Roses, and the late Prince are all known for banning mobile devices from their shows. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Of course, though, if you spend your hard-earned money on a ticket, naturally, you’re going to want to capture footage for the sake of keeping good memories. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But, by putting the ban on filming-snapping photos, artists are hoping to keep the audience members more engaged and to provide potential attendees with an even better, enjoyable, and exclusive experience. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Currently, Kendrick is on the European leg of his DAMN tour, which kicked off on February 7th in Dublin.

America, Community, and Crime: The Newest Purge Film Is Taking You Back To How lt All Began With "The First Purge" @balleralert THE FIRST PURGE JULY 4 The Newest Purge Film Is Taking You Back To How It All Began With "The First Purge"- Blogged by: @RaquelHarrisTV ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For all you horror film fans, specifically of the ThePurge franchise, get ready because its fourth project is coming soon and it’s taking you back to the beginning. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The newest “Purge” film will be a prequel and will tell the story of the “first Purge night,” announced Universal-Comcast Corp. The film will be titled, “The First Purge” and will still be produced by Blumhouse and Platinum Dunes. Writer-director James DeMonaco, the original writer of the series, will be coming back and will work alongside Gerard McMurray, who will be directing. 'The First Purge' will follow the same release date as its predecessor, 'The Purge: Election Year', and will debut the weekend of 4th of July. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you’ve never seen any of the films, you might think it’s just like any other horror film. However, unlike any other scary movie 'The Purge' has continuously taken steps to highlight the injustices and greed of America, tackling issues like homelessness, racism and institutional and political oppression. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Here is the synopsis of 'The First Purge': “To push the crime rate below one percent for the rest of the year, the New Founding Fathers of America (NFFA) test a sociological theory that vents aggression for one night in one isolated community. But when the violence of oppressors meets the rage of the marginalized, the contagion will explode from the trial-city borders and spread across the nation.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This time the film’s creators may just take a few jabs at Trump and his followers by the looks of their poster. Will you be watching?

Anaconda, Baller Alert, and Billboard: Baller Alert's Today In Hip Hop: Diddy released "Can't Nobody Hold Me Down" @balleralert Baller Alert’s Today In Hip Hop: Diddy released “Can’t Nobody Hold Me Down” blogged by @lanaladonna⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Can you believe it? A whole 21 years ago, who we then knew as PuffDaddy made his debut with the single “Can’t Nobody Hold Me Down” from debut album, “No Way Out.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Dominating the charts, “Can’t Nobody Hold Me Down” sat comfortably on the Billboard Hot 100 as 1 for six weeks. Diddy though, didn’t stop there. “Mo Money Mo Problems,” “All About the Benjamins Remix,” and “I’ll Be Missing You,” all found themselves on the billboard charts. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Being certified seven times platinum, a 3x Grammy award winner, an entrepenuer, rapper, songwriter, actor, and producer, it’s safe to say Diddy is more than goals. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Today, he is still topping charts without even putting out music, as he was recently named the world’s highest paid hip hop artist in 2017 by Forbes. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What are some of your favorites from Puff Daddy?
