As if there isn't enough hype surrounding Yeezus already, Paramount has added a movie trailer to the mix. The new promo for "Wolf of Wall Street," starring Leonardo DiCaprio, is set to the soundtrack of "Black Skinhead," a cut off Kanye West's new album which is out tomorrow (June 18).
"Black Skinhead" plays throughout the entire trailer for the new Scorsese film. The music stops only momentarily to highlight some of the more awkward scenes from the movie, like throwing a little person in a Velcro suit at a target board.
Kanye first premiered "Black Skinhead," along with "New Slaves," on the season finale of "Saturday Night Live" back on May 18. The highly-publicized performance was our first real taste of Yeezus. The album has since generated an exceptional amount of buzz: Fans searched for the significance behind the surprisingly minimalist album cover, Twitter exploded following the rare and endlessly quotable New York Times interview, and of course, the leak of the album itself caused a fury of downloads that left some wondering if Kanye had actually broken the internet.
An impressive array of collaborators are said to appear on the album, including Rick Rubin, Daft Punk, Kid Cudi, Chief Keef, Justin Vernon, Frank Ocean, and the man himself: "God." The hard copy of the highly-anticipated Yeezus is available in stores tomorrow.
Drake has announced dates for his upcoming 41-city tour with Miguel and Future called "Would You Like A Tour?" and the answer to that question is pretty obvious.
The tour will support Drake's third solo album, Nothing Was the Same, which includes the hit "Started From the Bottom" and his recent release "Girls Love Beyonce." It follows the multi-platinum and Grammy Award-winning success of his last album, Take Care, and his first platinum album, Thank Me Later.
Audiences across the United States will be able to hear more songs off the highly anticipated album along with hits from Miguel and Future. The tour kicks off on September 25 in Portland's Rose Garden Arena and tickets are available beginning Friday, June 21.

Tiara Thomas, the singer/songwriter, producer and MC behind Wale's "Bad," has signed to Division1/Interscope Geffen A&M.
Division1 is the label by Grammy Award-winning writer and producer Rico Love. The 23-year-old is the first artist signed to Love's label.
"Tiara is a gifted and versatile artist," said John Janick, President of Interscope Geffen A&M. "We're excited to work with Rico and Divison1 to develop and expose her extraordinary talent."
Rico Love added, "I'm extremely excited about Tiara Thomas being a member of the Division1 family. She's an amazing talent, phenomenal vocalist, and one of the most creative songwriters I've heard in a while. We're anxious to see how the world receives her. We have no doubt that they'll love her as much as we do. #TTLO"
Thomas is an Indianapolis native who attended Ball State University.
Shah was interviewed by Billboard moments after the incident, where she was shown holding an icepack to her elbow, but otherwise seemed to be in good spirits. Shah's attorney, Vip Bhola, is now claiming that her condition has worsened, and the victim has been experiencing "difficulties" in wake of the accident.
On when a lawsuit would be filed, Bhola said "We will determine that after we have feedback from medical providers."
More coverage to come as information arrives. Watch Shah's post-leg drop interview below.
Floyd Mayweather, according to Vegas Gambling Stream, has bet a whopping 5.9 million dollars on the Heat to win game 7 against the Indiana Pacers tonight.
The undefeated boxer is reportedly earning close to $90 million this year, but $5.9 million is still insane. This would not be the first time Mayweather has flashed his cash on bets, and is known to be something of a winner when it comes to sports bets.
Mayweather has been seen regularly on the Heat courtside, literally with bags full of cash, so it really should come as no surprise that he would bet this much money, and given the Heat's line tonight (-7) it could be seen as something of a safe bet.
Reality though has the Heat coming off a horrible game 6 performance, sporting 2 stars who have been in hiding for most of the series, and a Ray Allen who has apparently forgotten how to hit the three. On the other side is a Pacers side brimming with confidence, led by an immovable Roy Hibbert and rising star Paul George.
So if Wade and Bosh did not already feel pressure to win this game, just know that an undefeated boxer, who will likely be sitting courtside, is counting on you to not lose him $5.9 million. May be small change to him, but let no one lie to you, money is money (pun very much intended).
Aw man! This would be a really bad for Hillary if she runs for president in 2016. But, I'm going to say this is a sham from some bottom feeders! I think. Bill Clinton has had a pretty long running history of playing outside of his marriage. But, now there is a 27-year-old mixed heritage man (that means black and white) who claims that Bill is his father. Oh, and his mother is a former hooker. GREAT.
Here is the scandal-esque report. I'm not inclined to believe this with out some DNA testing to back it up.
Bill Clinton has a secret son he fathered with a hooker – and the now 27-year-old young man is desperate to meet his biological dad.
In a bombshell exclusive interview, Danney Lee Williams Jr., the love child the then-governor of Arkansas conceived with 'working girl' Bobbie Ann Williams, tells GLOBE he fears Clinton, 66, who's battling heart disease and also suffers from Parkinson's, will pass away before they can meet.
"I read he doesn't have long to live and I want to meet him face to face before he dies," says Danney, who lives in Little Rock Ark.
"I just want to shake his hand and say, "Hi Dad,' before he dies. I'd like to have a relationship with Chelsea, too. She's my half-sister."
Danney also wants Clinton to acknowledge and meet his five children, who he says are the former President's only grandchildren and range in age from 10 years to just 4 months old.
Seems like Waka Flocka Flame might be heading down the aisle very soon. The rapper's longtime girlfriend, Tammy, posted a photo today, rocking what appeared to be an engagement tattoo with her rapper boo.
Ms. Rivera or "Mz Flame" tweeted, "Happy birthday!!.. To my fiancé... Lord knows we been through it all!.. An yet our souls still manage." The message cuts off, but appears to be romantic in nature.
Just a few months ago, Waka was tweeting up a storm, including linking himself to actress Selena Gomez. Later, Waka cleared up the rumors and admitted that he never met the Disney pop tart.
While he builds personally, Waka recently broke up with longtime bff and mentor Gucci Mane. Waka didn't reveal the details of an apparently "real aggressive" conversation he had with his former friend but he was baffled as to Gucci's allegations that he was disloyal.
"I don't know. Honest to God truth, I don't know because I'm the loyalist person you could ever see. I took on a man's beef, risked my life, hung out the window, risked my freedom. I never backed in a corner," he said, referencing his involvement in Gucci Mane and Young Jeezy's beef. "To my knowledge, it can't be nothing but jealously or something because there is nothing I did disloyal."
Kendrick Lamar already let it be known that Molly wasn't cool and that it's time for hip-hop to move on from its infatuation with the drug, but apparently, Miley Cyrus didn't get the memo; or just didn't care. The artist formerly known as Hannah Montana dropped her new single, "We Can't Stop," on Ryan Seacrest's radio show Monday (June 3) and it's replete with references to the drug K-Dot admonished in the waning seconds of his video for "Bitch, Don't Kill My Vibe."
"We like to party/ Dancing with Molly/ Doing whatever we want," Miley sings on the chorus, oblivious to Kendrick's distaste of how much the drug has permeated rap's message of late.
"Sometimes you have the trends that's not that cool," Kendrick explained to MTV News' Sway Calloway. "You may have certain artists portraying these trends and don't really have that lifestyle and then it gives off the wrong thing. And it becomes kinda corny after a while."
Miley's song, which starts off chopped and screwed and has a distinctively hip-hop beat thanks to producer Mike Will Made It, is an ode to doing what one wants to do, all the time, including twerking.
"To my homegirls here with the big butts/ Shaking it like we're at the strip club/ Remember only god can judge you/ Forget the haters, 'cause somebody loves 'ya," sings Miley, who set the Internets ablaze when she posted a video of her twerking in a unicorn onesie.
This is the first track off Miley's upcoming fourth studio album, which is slated for a fall release.
"I'm really happy with my record. I'm in a good-bad situation where I just don't know what I want to go next," Miley said. "My record's kind of like a movie. It's really a story of what I've been going through."
Jason Kidd, one of the greatest point guards to play in the N.B.A., announced his retirement Monday, two weeks after a disappointing end to his first season with the Knicks.
"My time in professional basketball has been an incredible journey, but one that must come to an end after 19 years," Kidd said in a statement. "As I reflect on my time with the four teams I represented in the N.B.A., I look back fondly at every season and thank each and every one of my teammates and coaches that joined me on the court."
The decision was not surprising. Although Kidd, who turned 40 in March, signed a three-year contract last summer, he had said all along that he would reassess during the off-season. His poor performance in the Knicks' second-round loss to the Indiana Pacers only underlined that his Hall of Fame career was likely at an end. Coach Mike Woodson hardly played Kidd in the final two games.
Kidd's retirement will free a roster spot and allow the Knicks to get younger, but it will not provide much salary-cap relief. Kidd was to make $3.1 million next season.
"Jason's value to the Knicks and the National Basketball Association cannot be quantified by statistics alone," General Manager Glen Grunwald said in a statement. "Everyone here in New York saw firsthand what a tremendous competitor he is and why Jason is considered to be one of the best point guards, and leaders, the game has ever seen."
