Part of everyday driving is avoiding potholes as you navigate often crowded streets. Rocky roads can lead to flat tires and banged up wheels if you’re not careful.

A$ AP Rocky might be one of the few artists left in the game whose music videos grab your attention and hold on to it until the screen goes black.
His latest clip to “Tony Tone” continues that trend as we see A$ AP Rocky in different situations and places such as standing in front of an all white council with his crew to rolling deep through the ave while on a bike and flossing a neck chock full of ice.
On another side of town Janelle Monae gets her girl power on and rolls to a soiree with her girls in a drop top whip in the clip to “Crazy, Classic, Life.”
Check out the rest of today’s drops including work from Joey Purp featuring Chance The Rapper, Russ, and more.

It’s been a great year for Travis Scott on both the personal and professional fronts and from the looks of things he’s not going to be letting up anytime soon.
In his clip to “Yosemite,” Travis continues to give his fans cinematic type visuals as he finds himself flying high (both literally and, well, literally) while a young child falls from the sky and travels a jungle where the natives welcome him with open arms.
Not to be left behind, A$ AP Rocky stars in a wild clip to the Juicy J featured which features everything from crash test dummies to white folks having sexual relations in the kitchen. Can’t say we’ve ever seen a Hip-Hop video quite like this before.

“Creed II” represents the square root of “Rocky IV,” with all the tantalizing side plots that entails. Michael B. Jordan and Sylvester Stallone again provide a potent one-two combo, in a movie filled with nostalgic callbacks that make the most of the franchise’s durable formula.
Just when you thought that the mannequin challenge was officially dead and gone, A$ AP Rocky decided to resurrect the internet trend from a few years ago for his latest video.
In his visuals to “Sundress,” Pretty Flacko hits up the club where everyone in attendance is seemingly frozen in time and he finds himself starring down the barrel of a gun. Gunners are apparently immune from the mannequin challenge.
Sean Price fans meanwhile are in for a treat as they get to see the Hip-Hop legend living, breathing and rapping one last time in Mic Handz clip to “Conceit.”
Check out the rest of today’s drops including work from Young Buck, Blac Youngsta, and more.

EA Sports is bringing the most prominent names sports and music together with the FIFA 19 World Tour to take on each other in its uber-popular soccer video game franchise FIFA 19.
Today the video game company kicked off the FIFA 19 World Tour with the help of Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard, Grime artist Stormzy and comedian, rapper and actor Michael Dapaah aka Big Shaq. The first stop on tour takes us across the pond to London where we see the four take on each other in a no rules game of FIFA 19’s Kick Off mode.
Following London, EA will take the electronic version of The World’s Game to these other stops around the globe featuring these big names:
- Odell Beckham Jr vs. A$ AP Rocky in New York City
- Maluma vs. Martin Garrix in Rio, Brazil
- Kimpembe, Meunier, Niska, Alonso in Paris
- Liam Payne, Christian Pulisic, Marco Reus and more in Dortmund
For the first installment, Stormzy who has bragged about his FIFA skills was definitely getting the side-eye from the “Mans Not Hot” creator Big Shaq cause they definitely got their tails handed to them. In their defense, though they did take on two professional soccer players, so it’s quite understandable why they caught an L.
Regardless the match made for some hilarious banter between them we are looking forward to the other videos from the other tour stops. You can watch Stormzy, and Big Shaq gets schooled in FIFA 19 below.

In his clip to “No Limit Remix” the white kid from Oaktown unites an impressive cast of Hip-Hop all-stars in A$ AP Rocky, French Montana, Juicy J, Belly and 2017 rookie of the year Cardi B to help him turn up at an underground party and steal the show. Well, at least he stands out like a green hat with an orange bill.

At the end of the day everyone loves themselves a comfortable bed, but A$ AP Ferg and A$ AP Rocky might have an obsession with mattresses.
For Ferg’s A$ AP Rocky’s assisted clip to “The Matress” the Harlem mob boys make the most of every matress they come by from the abandoned one in the alley to the high priced joints in a Mattress Firm. We wonder how much they had to pay to hop on those beds all night long.

A$ AP Rocky and Playboi Carti’s popularity these days are what most rappers dream of having so it’s only right the two link up and give their fans something to bump for the summer ’17.
In the visuals to “New Choppa” the two get their How High on and zone out to an informercial featuring themselves and some bikini-clad women testing out some automatic rifles at a firing range. Bet them conservatives re-thinking that 2nd amendment right about now.
Back in the Boogie Down Bronx representatives Don Q and A Boogie link up and put it down for the borough in the visuals to “Protect Ya Patek” where they go from splurging on some high end diamond time pieces to burning rubber in a high speed car chase. Just another day in the birthplace of Hip-Hop.

That’s the route that D.R.A.M. went in his A$ AP Rocky and Juicy J assisted visuals to “Gilligan” where they take today’s sexually charged norms and use it to shock the conservative way of life of the 1960’s. Lord, how times have changed.

A$ AP Rocky isn’t keen on settling. Especially in the case of his former manager Geno Sims, who says the Harlem rap star swindling him out of a cool $ 850,000 during the course of their working relationship.
In new documents obtained by The Jasmine Brand, the 27-year-old personality (real name Rakim Mayers) is countersuing Sims, alleging that Sims breached their contract by disclosing information about his finances, personal life and his business to others.
Rocky also attributes any confusion as to what Sims claims he’s owed to the new negotiation they reached when the PMF brought in a second manager circa 2011 to help with his burgeoning celebrity. He says the paperwork filed at the time of Sims’ termination in 2014 explicitly states he wouldn’t be giving him one more red cent.
It appears this issue will be heading to court in the near future.

A$ AP Rocky also says people need to be less serious.
Samsung has repeatedly told you that “The Next Big Thing” is already here and the prestigious company is set to release the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ and Galaxy Note5 on August 21 to live together in technological matrimony.
Last night (August 18), West Hollywood was transformed into a star-studded celebration for plenty of Samsung ambassadors ahead of the new product rollout.
DJ M.O.S. warmed up the crowd with Hip-Hop freshness from new and old as Chrissy Teigen (fresh off her viral ad), Jamie Foxx, Tyrese, Russell Simmons, Wesley Snipes, Demi Levato, apl.de.ap and Aldis Hodge (coming Straight Outta Compton), among others enjoyed an open bar and the atmosphere.
Elsewhere, technical newlyweds Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade treated their Los Angeles rendezvous like a date night and planned an one-year anniversary vacation.
Midway through the night, A$ AP Rocky–alongside A$ AP Twelvy–took the center stage for a surprise performance and ran through three albums worth of material with hits like “M’s”, “Wassup”, “Goldie”, “Electric Body” and “Everyday.” Seeing that power of the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ was at his disposal, he allowed fans to use the phone to choose his swan song. Of course they chose his “favorite” track, “F**king Problems.”
Check out the sights and scenes from the actual “Next Big Thing” party down below. For more information on the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ and Galaxy Note5, visit their official website.

A$ AP Rocky discusses life after A$ AP Yams and his role in the comedy film "DOPE" in The Source’s 2015 Summer Issue.
Robert Chartoff, who is best known for producing boxing movies, died Wednesday at his Santa Monica, California, home, his daughter Miranda Chartoff told CNN.
SANTA MONICA, Calif. (AP) — Robert Chartoff, the Oscar-winning movie producer behind the boxing classics “Rocky” and “Raging Bull,” died Wednesday, associates said. He was 81.
Chartoff died at his home in Santa Monica, California, Lynn Hendee, the president of his company, Chartoff Productions. He had been suffering from pancreatic cancer. Born in Depression-era New York City, Chartoff had been a movie producer for nearly a decade when he found his career-defining hit in 1976’s “Rocky,” the small-budget movie starring and written by Sylvester Stallone that became a blockbuster and won three Academy Awards including best picture.
Chartoff and his partner Irwin Winkler would go on to produce all seven movies in the “Rocky” series, including the forthcoming “Creed,” which is in post-production and due for release later this year.
He kept working into his late 70s and 80s, his recent credits including 2013’s “Ender’s Game” with Harrison Ford and 2014’s “The Gambler” with Mark Wahlberg.
He also produced a different, darker take on boxing in the Martin Scorcese-directed “Raging Bull” in 1980.
His other credits included 1983’s “The Right Stuff,” which won four Oscars, and 1969’s “They Shoot Horses, Don’t They?” a cult hit starring Jane Fonda.
He had five children with three different wives, and is survived by his current wife jenny Weyman.

"These niggas been on the West Coast too long," A$ AP Rocky says, "and these niggas wanna smoke too much."
(AllHipHop News) On his latest album At.Long.Last.A$ AP, A$ AP Rocky managed to get veteran emcee Yasiin Bey to return to his roots and perform under the name Mos Def. The man born Dante Smith dropped the Mos Def moniker in 2012, and he had not done much musical work since that time.
A.L.L.A. features Mos on the the closing cut “Back Home.” A$ AP Rocky spoke with DJ Whoo Kid about collaborating with the Brooklyn legend.
“He was Mos Def when he was rapping. He wasn’t Yasiin Bey,” said Rocky. “Mos is an artist. Mos will start rapping for no reason.”
The A$ AP Mob member also talked about his experiences doing drugs with Wiz Khalifa. Wiz claimed Rocky ran away from a “blunt challenge” which led Rocky to address his rap peer’s accusations.
“I don’t know what’s wrong with Wiz, and I don’t know what’s wrong with Snoop [Dogg]. I don’t know what’s wrong with Chris Brown and all these n*ggas. These n*ggas been on the West Coast too long and these niggas want to smoke too much,” Rocky stated.
According to Rocky, he told the Taylor Gang leader he would go blunt for blunt, but Wiz responded that he does not smoke blunts, only papers. While Rocky admitted he had trouble handling Wiz’s dab, the “L$ D” rapper got Wiz back when he got him to do mushrooms for the first time.
“Since he put me on blast for being a punk cause I couldn’t take the dab – even though that was three years ago – that’s cool. Now I gotta put him on blast,” added Rocky. “I give him the shrooms. We go to the after-party. Your man is leaning. He’s like, ‘Oh sh*t, I see it now man. I feel it. You see the light right there, it’s f*cking bending.’”

In 2008, a massive earthquake shook the Chinese province of Sichuan. Measuring 8.0, the quake killed more than 69,000, injured countless more, and left 4.8 million homeless. The Chinese government has spent billions on the region’s recovery, which even now is incomplete.
The immediate devastation in Sichuan was also followed by a dramatic spike in the divorce rate, a phenomenon that captured international attention — and sparked widespread speculation — at the time. Did the deadly earthquake actually cause the jump in marital breakups?
The spike might have been a coincidence, though that’s unlikely. It could also have been that severe emotional and financial stress took a toll on the relationships. That’s certainly plausible. But it might also have been something much more basic. It could be that the turbulence itself — the shaking and crumbling of the physical environment in Sichuan — triggered cognitive and emotional turbulence, undermining personal commitment in the process.
That is the provocative idea that University of Pittsburgh psychological scientist Amanda Forest, with colleagues at the University of Waterloo, has been exploring in a series of studies. Though it sounds a bit wild, the hypothesis has a solid grounding in theory, specifically one called “embodied cognition.” This is the idea that abstract concepts are scaffolded on top of actual physical sensations, beginning with early caregiving experiences. Just as experiencing actual warmth activates feelings of personal warmth, perhaps actual shaking and crumbling can trigger thoughts of personal instability. Indeed, this cognitive link may be the basis of the metaphor “rocky relationships.”
The scientists tested this idea in three experiments, all involving people in committed relationships. In all the studies, only some of the subjects experienced subtle forms of instability in the laboratory — standing on one leg, sitting on a wobbly chair or cushion. While experiencing this instability (or not, in the case of controls), the subjects answered questions about their relationships: How confident are you that your partner and you will be together in six months? In a year? Three years? For a lifetime? How satisfied are you in your romantic relationship? How committed are you? And so forth. Some of the studies required the subjects to write notes to their partners, which were then analyzed by independent raters for signs of affection.
When they crunched the data, all the studies supported the notion of embodied shakiness. As reported in a forthcoming issue of the journal Psychological Science, actual physical instability led people to perceive their relationships as less likely to last. But more important, these perceptions were associated with less satisfaction and less relationship commitment. It’s known that people who experience less satisfaction and commitment are more likely to break up down the road.
Even in the most established relationships — defined in these studies as one and a half years together — people’s perceptions of relationship stability were remarkably malleable, shifting in accord with very subtle physical experiences. What’s more, physical rockiness triggered responses associated with known relationship risks: People who reported romantic instability were more likely to be withdrawn and less affectionate. Since emotional expression is key to satisfying relationships, shifts are not inconsequential.
Why would physical instability trigger such damaging responses? It’s not entirely clear, but it could be the wobbliness makes people uncertain of their own commitment. Or it could be people become more insecure about their partner’s commitment and withdraw as a form of self-protection, distancing themselves to diminish the possible pain of rejection. Or both. Whatever the dynamic, it appears that powerful turbulence, as in Sichuan, can result in both a natural and social disaster.
