2 Chainz Announces New Album “Rap Or Go To The League”


2 Chainz announces new album “Rap Or Go To The League” during NBA All-star weekend.

About a week ago 2 Chainz’s surprisingly dropped an EP titled The Play Don’t Care Who Makes It  which included four songs that I assumed will be on his next full length album that is coming soon, but I did not know when nor what the album title will be, until this weekend when he dropped the news.

2 Chainz already has a radio hit collaboration that includes, Kendrick Lamar, Saudi & Schoolboy Q, called “X” from off the Marvel Comics movie, Black Panther, soundtrack. 2 Chainz is well known for having a lot to say will continue with more on this new album.

The scheduled released date has not been mentioned yet so stay tuned!

LA Clippers Tease Quavo With A 10 Day Contract


The LA Clippers teased Quavo with a 10 day contract after becoming 2018’s NBA Celebrity Game MVP!!

On Dj Vlad site, they caught Balleralert comment creeping up under Quavo’s twitter post, and pointed out how the L.A. Clippers commented “We got that 10 day contract for you when ever your ready”

This type of announcement should not come off as no surprise for Quavo scored an amazing 19 points during the game that led to his team winning the game! Quavo Huncho had 7-10 FG, 5 rebounds with 3 assists! He almost knocked NBA 2K host, Rachel DeMita, out her shoes when he blocked her shot!

Quavo, being the talk of the night, was so excited about his win that he even brought his MVP trophy out with him to The Beats By Dre party!

Being a major fan of the Migos, I been knew that Quavo was very athletic & during his down time he stays active by continuing to play sports. Quavo, whose real name is, Quavious Marshall, was the starting quarterback for Berkmar High School. During his high school years Quavo led the county in passing yards and set game records.

According to Bleacherreport Quavo’s former coach, John Thompson, believed Quavo was a great player and was quoted as saying “He was a joy to coach; he made it fun,” Thompson adds. “The thing they all had to learn was that for me, to be on time you have to be five minutes early. Quavious would always walk in exactly five minutes early and smile that little grin he has: ‘Coach, I’m here!’ I think sometimes he did it just to aggravate me, but he was always there. He was a prankster.”

Even though the LA Clippers were making a joke, they know that if Quavo was not a part of the Migos, he will prolly take the deal! While watching the game I thought Chris Brown was going to be the show off for the game, like he usually do! SIKE!! Quavo proved me wrong!

I do believe that once the Migos reach a certain level of fame, Quavo will return back to his roots and will start a little league team like Snoop Dogg did years ago. When you’re blessed with talent, its only right to spread those blessings back to our youth for they are our future!!

Jamie Foxx Walks Off During Live ESPN Broadcast


Jamie Foxx walked off during a live ESPN broadcast when host asked about Katie Holmes!

Jamie Foxx, actor, was in the middle of prepping to play for the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game on Friday night until Sport Center’s Michael Smith tried to interview him, but due to asking the wrong question, the interview ended abruptly.

It seemed as if the beginning of the interview was going well! Jamie Foxx was seen in the video saying “I’m ready-made, all you gotta do is add water,” he told an ESPN reporter on the court. “They’re ready to pour some water on me and I’m ready to rock!” until Smith mentioned about photos of Jamie Foxx and rumored girlfriend, Katie Holmes, were seen together playing basketball on Valentines Day. Once mentioned, Foxx, who had on a headset, quickly went to take them off, stood up, smiling at the camera, not uttering one word went back to the court looking like he was ready to play!

“Uh oh, did we lose him?” Smith said as Foxx was seen beginning to stretch out on the court. “Oh, he ready to go, he ready to hoop.”

While the Oscar winner did not return to finish his interview, he did look like he was still in great spirits while standing next to singer, Justin Beiber. SELRES_51b87a0d-fd44-4073-804f-eb1dde24662cTMZSELRES_51b87a0d-fd44-4073-804f-eb1dde24662c made sure to catch the video of the quick interview, which I have posted above.

I have no idea why the media is shocked about Jamie’s reaction, he has always been very private about his personal life! I remember I did not know he had a child until he was nominated for an Oscar back in 2005, and brought her as a date. Think about it….we still have no idea who her mother is! I do respect that he wants to keep the relationship with Katie silent. Their was a time when Katie was constantly in the news about her marriage with Tom Cruise, their child together, and even the break up! I believe she is another individual who prefers to keep her personal relationship quiet too! I can not list off the top of my brain as to whom she dated in her past prior to Tom Cruise!

Well, peers if you did learn anything from Jamie Foxx short interview is to not question about his personal life regardless if he with Katie Holmes or not allow him to be the one to make the initiative! We here at 216 The Beat wish both Katie Holmes & Jamie Foxx the best!

Cavaliers Trade Kyrie Irvin to Boston


The Boston Celtics have acquired All-Star point guard #KyrieIrving from the Cleveland Cavaliers for point guard #IsaiahThomas, forward #JaeCrowder, center #AnteZizic and Brooklyn’s 2018 unprotected first-round pick, sources tell ESPN.

Thomas had been bracing for the possibility of a trade on Tuesday, league sources told ESPN.

Irving, 25, requested a trade during a July meeting with Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert. Irving has said that he wants to play in a situation where he can be more of a focal point and that he no longer wants to play alongside #LeBronJames, sources said.
Irving has three years and $60 million left on his contract, but he can opt out of the final year before the 2019-20 season.

Thomas has spent the offseason recovering from a right hip injury. He led the Celtics to the best record in the Eastern Conference, averaging 28.9 points and 5.9 assists over 33.8 minutes per game during the regular season.

Thomas missed the final three games of the Eastern Conference finals with the hip injury and opted not to have surgery. Celtics coach Brad Stevens said Monday that he was not sure Thomas would be ready for the start of training camp, but that further medical tests in September would determine that timeline.

Thomas, 28, will become a free agent when his contract expires at the end of June. Thomas has said he believes he’s worthy of a maximum contract.

Irving was the No. 1 pick in the 2011 Draft. Thomas was the last.

The trade will make for an interesting opener for both teams. The #Celtics and #Cavaliers open the season in #Cleveland on Oct. 17.
