My World: “Rappers Delight”

Rapper’s Delight

Growing up in Brownsville, Texas, rapper Carlton Zeus garnered a special appreciation for Matamoros’ street vendors. For the days he can’t cross the border, Zeus found excellent grub in his own backyard. The Block Food Park & Patio Bar is the place Zeus and his crew indulge in nachos and beer. But the food comes second to the staff that makes everyone feel at home. Next up, a food truck where Martin “El Huero” makes tacos with tortillas made from burnt cheese. Zeus loves food…like, a lot.

Like us, Cardi B is about the “suck it in life” this quarantine.

We’ve always known that the rapper knew how to keep it real. Especially when it comes to body confidence.

Exhibit A: these stringy bikini looks show how divine and body pos she is.

A post shared by Cardi B (@iamcardib) on

The rapper posted this beautiful picture of herself earlier this week after revealing that she had a new tattoo finished on her back. “Okay guys! Soooo here it is! It took me several months but I’m finally finished. This is my back tattoo! It goes from the top of my back to the middle of my thigh,” Cardi wrote in a caption to her Instagram. In a separate clip to her Instagram, she credited tattoo artist Jamie Schene of Union3Tattoo for the work.

I mean… just look at her.

In a recent post to her Instagram page, the rapper got real about her pictures and admitted to being about that “suck it in life.”

“I suck the s–t out my stomach for this pic so appreciated,” she wrote in the caption to her Instagram post. In it, Cardi can be seen wearing a teeny bikini and lace-up stilettos. To follow up, the rapper shared another Instagram video, this time of herself walking towards the camera in her bikini, and faulting her body. When she turns she shows off her side profile and lets out her stomach. And tbh we love the natural curves!

Of course, it didn’t take long for fans to flock to the comments and gas up the rapper.

“Same here sis!!! ,” Antonique Smith the actress from “Notorious” wrote in the captions. “Thank you for the honesty!” “If this ain’t da realest shii,” sevyn added to the comments.

It’s no surprise the rapper is being open about her body. She has a long history of being honest about her own body positivity and experiences with liposuction and receiving plastic surgery after giving birth to daughter Kulture. In an interview with E! she explained that speaking openly about the procedures was important for her she does not “like lying about things.”

New York Radio Host Angie Martinez Is Telling Tekashi 69’s Story In An 8-Part Podcast All About The Rapper

Tekashi 69, also known as Daniel Hernandez, is getting an eight-part documentary podcast series dedicated to telling his life story titled “Infamous: The Tekashi 6ix9ine Story.” The rapper clearly isn’t done with sharing information, and this time he’s sharing everything about himself. The audio series was born from a partnership between Spotify and Complex.

Praised hip-hop journalist and radio host, Angie Martinez, aka the Voice of New York, will narrate the series, which takes a deep dive into the rise and fall of “2018’s biggest rapper.”

“Tekashi has a polarizing personality and his story has taken us on a roller coaster ride like nothing we’ve ever seen in hip-hop,” Martinez said in the release. “So, when Complex reached out with this project, I was excited about the opportunity to help tell this story.”

Just when we thought the rapper was about to quiet down, the Spotify project was announced.

Tekashi 69 is serving his sentence for racketeering, weapons and drug charges connected to his involvement with the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods. He was sentenced back in December of 2019, to two years in prison after cooperating with federal authorities to reveal crimes committed by his former gang members. He has since requested to serve the remainder of his sentence at home instead of in a private prison, a plea that the judge presiding over his case denied.

“Infamous: The Tekashi 6ix9ine Story” will air weekly episodes starting Jan. 28, 2020 on Spotify.

The podcast’s plotline starts back in 2014 when Tekashi 69 was working behind a Bushwich deli counter and a customer, which ended up being his manager Kifano “Shotti” Jordan, told him he had what it took to become a rapper. The eight-part series will delve into Hernandez’s life from becoming a viral, rainbow-haired personality to a person behind bars for racketeering and firearms charges. 

The fallout from Tekashi 69’s testimony has found him labeled a “snitch.”

His former security will no longer work for him, and he is an outcast from the hip-hop community at large. That didn’t stop him from reportedly signing a $10 million recording contract, although it may cost him more to remain protected than to record and promote the music he allegedly worked on in prison, and there’s no telling who would buy that album anyway.

The Spotify original production tracks back Tekashi’s breakout from Instagram troll to hip-hop’s hottest commodity to cooperating witness in a wide-ranging gang sting that led to the downfall of the Nine Trey Bloods who backed Tekashi 69 in a mutualistic bid for funding and clout. 

The first episode is titled “We Scums, We Not Slimes.”

The episode begins with Tekashi’s infamous interview on the Breakfast Club, where the young rapper declared that he was the “King Of New York.” At this point in his career he had just fired his entire crew, and he felt untouchable. He used the interview as a platform to mock his ex-crew of Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods, live on the morning show. Many fans still credit this moment as the beginning of the end for the rapper. Days after the Breakfast Club interview, Tekashi was arrested on RICO charges, effectively placing his career on hold.

The episode then gets into how Hernandez ended up behind bars.

Martinez recalls an interview she had with the rapper where he emotionally expressed that he’d “wear sneakers out of the garbage” and he “didn’t shower for two months.” She then asked the question could there have been an opportunity for intervention early on in Hernandez’s youth, “especially given the untreated trauma experienced at a young age.”

Tekashi 69 has already landed an over $10 million record deal with his former label, 10K Projects. 

The deal includes two albums: one in English and one in Spanish. Meanwhile, Showtime is already hard at work on “Supervillian,” 6Tekashi 69 documentary, and 50 Cent’s series “Moment in Time” will also have an hour-long episode dedicated to the rapper. He’s the most wanted man in America in more ways than one.

The new episodes in the eight-episode series will drop every Tuesday, exclusively on Spotify. In each episode, listeners will listen to people who helped to shape the problematic artist: the Scumgang members who mentored him, members of the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods, producers, and the people who encouraged the rapper’s transformation from a Bushwick kid to the multimillionaire, colorful hair rapper, to a convicted felon.
