A few weeks ago, Gotti and Kanye West‘s much-hyped “Brothers” collaboration finally premiered during his BET “Tales” premiere.

After teasing the new track as part of BET’s Tales last month, Kanye West has finally revealed his new track alongside longtime collaborator Charlie Wilson, entitled “Brothers.” Produced by Irv Gotti and Murder Inc producer Seven (Channel 7), the track debuted on the show’s two-hour season premiere late Tuesday night. Reminiscent of the “Big Brother” sound from Ye’s Graduation era, the song relishes in much of the style that early Kanye fans have craved from the artist’s current and future projects. (Hypebeast)

In early July, Ye’s wife Kim Kardashian went to Twitter to plug BET’s “Tales” season premiere and remind followers “Brothers” will finally get released.

Recently, Gotti revealed Yeezy came into the picture for his “Tales” banger a couple years ago.

“As you guys know, with ‘Tales,’ I take existing songs and turn them into, like, a movie. When I approached Kanye back in October of 2017, I was like, ‘Yo, I wanna do something special for the culture. I love the hip-hop culture. I’m a huge, like, believer in the hip-hop culture and what it is and I want to do this for the culture.’ I know this sounds cliché-ish but it’s honest. I said, ‘Yo, let’s give them a new song. I’m going to make a two-hour movie to the song and it’ll be the season premiere.’ You know, Kanye rode out with me, man. He was like, ‘That’s a great thing.'” (TMZ)

Funk Flex Rips JD For Coming To JAY-Z Defense: “NFL/Roc Nation Applying That Pressure For You To Backpedal!” 

Funk Flex

Hot 97 radio veteran Funk Flex sounds big mad. The hip-hop entertainer has come forward to get at Jermaine Dupri for coming to JAY-Z‘s defense following a publicized NFL deal.

On Thursday, Flex called out JD for saying JAY didn’t tell him to fall back on a previous NFL partnership and suggested Roc Nation pressured him.

In a new interview, JD said while he did speak to JAY about previously working with the NFL during Super Bowl festivities, he didn’t have Young Hov corner him.

“On the Big Tigger show, I’m speaking and letting people know, he and I never had a conversation where he told me ‘Don’t do what you’re doing.’ What our conversation was, was that ‘You know what side I’m on. Understand what you’re doing.’ That’s what the conversation was. Because everybody should, like I said, even when I was doing my press, I kept having to reiterate the fact that, ‘Guy, I’m not doing Super Bowl, I’m doing shows in Centennial Olympic Park.’ And people just kept, ‘No, you’re involved in the NFL ’cause it’s an NFL sanctioned thing.’ Okay, that’s cool but we also have an NFL committee that’s an Atlanta committee, right? That people that live in Atlanta, people that move around this city everyday, shout-out to all of the people that work there…” (V-103)

A few days ago, Flexripped JAY for allegedly pressuring JD not to work with the NFL.

This subject matter has been weighing on me for a sec… I’ve spoken to Jermaine, Fat Joe, Nessa, Pio and TT…. My opinion is probably not what the people I have relationships want to hear but it’s bothering me so I need to discuss… Colin has taken an incredible unselfish stand for bringing light to social injustice that will never be duplicated… and even though his settlement was under 10million for him and Eric (Which covered mostly lawyer fees) I’m not 1,000 percently ok that Colin excepted the deal because it feels that since the deal Colin hasn’t been as aggressive as he once was… I know I’ve been 1,000 percent better with Rocnation as of late so I hope I can be honest and continue our positive relationship… We are never past kneeling… the “fear of the Kneeling” is what pushed the NFL to get more aggressive with unlawful tactics (hence is why they settled with Colin) To dismiss his efforts in front of the NFL Commissioner (the one who spearheaded the Colin corruption was an extreme slap in the face!) Jayz In our world is our “Michael Jordan” decided by the people who respect/cherish his accomplishments. Watching that Commissioner’s body language and feeling his desperation to open the Season with the “STRONGEST AFRICAN AMERICAN POSSIBLE WITH CREDIBILITY” was obvious! If Jayz saw what we all saw in the press conference and feels working from the inside while being paid and receiving a “stake” in a team is the answer and can spearhead social justice from the inside he is our HERO for life!!!! BUT if he and the air personalities/social media influencers that Rocknation manages or wants to be managed by them have spun the “believe in Jayz… give him a chance” campaign to line pockets… this will be remembered and NOT swept under the rug in a few months! TRUST! Time will tell!#JustMyOpinion

In a new interview, Atlanta native Killer Mike said he believed JAY’s groundbreaking NFL/Roc Nation partnership could open more than just a few doors for the black community.

“JAY-Z’s play, I believe, not only gives us a seat at the table, young people, young black America, it doesn’t destroy what Kaepernick kneeled for. What he kneeled for was proper treatment of us by state agents—by police. That does not end with him getting a job. The same way him kneeling is not an insult to the military.” (“Real Time With Bill Maher”)

Jermaine Dupri

Music pioneer Jermaine “JD” Dupri is keeping it 100. The hip-hop veteran has stepped forward to clear the air on reports claiming rap icon JAY-Z told him not to do a partnership with the NFL.

In a recent interview, rap star Cardi B appeared optimistic about what JAY will ultimately do by partnering up with the professional football league.

“I think that he can make a change. I don’t think he went [in] on an NFL deal without an agreement – I feel like he went in there like, ‘Alright, if y’all want me to work with y’all, y’all need to bring my peoples in there.’ … I feel like JAY-Z could bring back Colin Kaepernick. I feel so. I feel like he has that power…I feel like JAY-Z could do it.” (TMZ)
