LIL NAS X TO FACE NIKE IN COURT OVER CONTROVERSIAL ‘SATAN SHOES’

LIL NAS X TO FACE NIKE IN COURT OVER CONTROVERSIAL 'SATAN SHOES'

On Monday (July 19), Lil Nas X is expected to go to court against Nike over his customized “Satan Shoes.”

On Friday (July 16), the Grammy Award winner, true to form, uploaded a TikTok video drenched in his trademark wit. Lil Nas X tries to do a dance for the camera with tears streaming down his face, but he can’t keep it together.

“When your label continues pressuring you to do TikTok videos but you have court on Monday about satan shoes and might go to jail,” the caption reads.

The “Satan Shoe” controversy began in March, when Lil Nas X and MSCHF debuted their customized Nike Air Max ’97s collaboration, which had 66 CCs of crimson ink and one drop of human blood in the sole.

The sneaker drew the attention of retired NBA player Nick Young, who declared a ban on “Old Town Road” in his home and said he was considering a Nike boycott despite the fact that Nike had nothing to do with the shoe’s production.

Lil Nas X issued a “apology” to anyone offended by the collaboration not long after Young’s post began circulating on Twitter, but when people clicked the YouTube link, they were greeted with a promo for his equally as talked about video for “MONTEREO (Call Me By Your Name),” in which he grinds on Satan’s lap.

But Nike didn’t get the joke and filed a trademark infringement lawsuit against the MSCHF since the distinctive Nike Swoosh logo was prominently featured on X’s customized versions. Nike was able to stop the shoes from being sold in the future.

“MSCHF has agreed to launch a voluntary recall to buy back any Satan Shoes and Jesus Shoes for their original retail prices, to remove them from circulation,” Nike said in an April statement.

The song “MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name)” soared to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 as a result of the attention. However, it’s unclear what the hearing on Monday will include.

KODAK BLACK IS READY TO FILE A CHARGE AGAINST JACKBOY

Kodak Black hasn’t given up on his former signee and pal, Jackboy. The rapper announced his intention to file a lawsuit on Instagram this morning.

The “Gleerious” rapper said on Instagram, “I Still Ain’t Get My Money From This Ungrateful Lil Bitch Yet.” “And what’s even crazier, A N***a Ain’t Even TRYING 2 Make These People Send Dat, No Kinda Effort To, But If I File This Lawsuit Or Sumn, Ima B Green.”

When Kodak and Jackboy battled back and forth on social media in June, fans were taken aback. Jackboy escalated the fight by dumping over $100,000 into the ocean, alleging that he didn’t need any of the money he earned from Jackboy.

“I Was Too Busy Showin Love I Ain’t See Da Signs, When You Needed Me Pussy I Came Through Everytime, Whether You Were Right Or Wrong Fuck N***a I Was Riding…. But in the back of your mind, you were envious of me, N***a,” the rapper stated on Instagram.

The foolery has elicited no response from Jackboy. Do you believe the two can simply mend fences?

The Weeknd is ushering in a new era, With the single “Take My Breath”

The Weeknd is ushering in a new era, With the single "Take My Breath"

Following a series of not-so-subtle hints, The Weeknd appears to be gearing up for his post-After Hours phase. In a video released yesterday, he teased over two minutes of new music, and now he’s revealed even more of it.

He also announced that the song’s title is “Take My Breath,” and that it will be released on Friday, August 6.

The song is featured in a new NBC ad for Olympic coverage in 2020, specifically some track and field events.

Although the commercial discloses the song’s name, it is a less comprehensive preview of the actual music than the previous teaser, however it does show off what appears to be the hook, which the teaser did not.

The Weeknd stated in a September interview that the album he was working on at the time was cinematic, saying, “I’m guilty of wanting to outdo my last album, but it’s never like, ‘I’ve got to do the same type of song.'” I’m so relieved that I’m not like that.

My palette is really diverse. […] I’m attempting to strike the right balance between the film and the music, and so far it’s working out beautifully. “I believe I’ve broken the code.”

Kanye West supporters believe his new album will include a collaboration with The Weeknd

Fans of Kanye West believe the rapper’s forthcoming album, Donda, will include a duet with The Weeknd.

Originally set to be released in July, Kanye West announced this week that his long-awaited new album will instead be released on August 5th.

Kanye West posted a screenshot of his phone’s call log to his Instagram account on Monday (2 August), revealing that he had made three calls with the “Blinding Lights” singer in the previous day.

One call was recorded on Sunday, and two more were recorded at 1:14 a.m. and 2:17 a.m. on Monday.

Kanye West tagged producer Mike Dean in the image, who re-posted it to his own Instagram account. He wrote, “IF I DON’T ANSWER, U SEE WHY #DONDA.”

In the comments section of the original post, fans speculated that a possible collaboration with The Weeknd, real name Abel Makkonen Tesfaye, was on the way, with one fan commenting, “YO PLZ COLLAB WITH THE WEEKND.”

“The Weekend and Kanye???? “OH MY GOD WE GETTING THE WEEKEND ON THIS TOO,” one commenter wondered, while another added, “OH MY GOD WE GETTING THE WEEKEND ON THIS TOO.”

“NEED THAT WEEKEND COLLAB,” said another commenter.

Kanye West is now staying in a suite inside Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium while working on the record, which is dedicated after his mother Donda West, who died in 2007 at the age of 58.

Donda will be the subject of a second hearing session on Thursday.
