JAY-Z Provided Fat Joe with a Plane for Puerto Rico

Since government aid to Puerto Rico is moving at a snail’s pace, it looks like it’s up to the community to lend a helping hand. The U.S. commonwealth is reeling in the wake of Hurricane Maria. For a week, residents there have been struggling without electricity, food, gas, and water.

Fat Joe is teaming up with JAY-Z, Tidal, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, and Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. to send supplies to Puerto Rico. In a video posted on social media, the Puerto Rican rapper says he will be collecting supplies like batteries, women’s products, water, toothpaste, soap and canned food.

This will be taking place on Saturday, September 30th at the Jacob Javits Center in midtown, Manhattan. JAY-Z is supplying the airplane that the Bronx native will fly into Puerto Rico. There, he will meet Reggaeton star Daddy Yankee to distribute the items. Fat Joe’s goal is to collect 200,000 lbs. of goods.

There are several locations throughout the state and New York City that will also be accepting donations on Saturday. They include the Shirley A. Chisholm State Office Building in Brooklyn and the Jamaica Street Armory in Queens. There are also two locations in the Bronx accepting goods, Roberto Clemente State Park and the Department of Motor Vehicles on Fordham Road.

For those who cannot get to those locations but would like to make a monetary donation, you can do so at tidal.com/PuertoRico.

Jay Z Announces New Album ‘4:44’ For June 30

As if Jay Z didn’t have enough on his hands, the hip-hop legend has just shared details on a new album, 4:44. But you won’t be able to buy it or stream it just anywhere.

The album will drop June 30 for subscribers of Sprint or Jay Z’s Tidal platform through what’s pitched as a first-of-its-kind partnership between both companies.

Chatter on a new Hov LP heated up in recent weeks, and the entrepreneur and music man threw fuel on that fire last week with a mysterious campaign which saw the numbers “4:44” and the date “6.30.17” dished up on posters and online.

The plot thickened in the hours before midnight when a teaser video appeared on Tidal. Then the big revealed happened as the clock struck twelve.

The corporate partnership behind the U.S. release is the first in a series of music exclusives, according to a joint statement, and it follows the announcement in January that Tidal sold a 33 percent stake in the company to Sprint for $200 million, giving it access to the telecom company’s 45 million customers. Outside the U.S., 4:44 will be available to stream only on Tidal for now. It’s unclear for how long the exclusive window will last, though Billboard has reached out to reps for comment.

As part of the U.S. campaign, Tidal and Sprint have pledged support to the 1Million Project, an educational initiative from Sprint and the Sprint Foundation that will assist 1 million low-income U.S. high school students who aren’t connected to the Web at home.

News on the surprise album release caps an eventful week during which Jay Z and his wife Beyonce welcomed twins and the artist was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, becoming the first rapper to achieve that honor. The new LP is the followup to 2013’s Magna Carta… Holy Grail, which peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.

Will and Jada: Close To Divorce

It’s over! After 17 years, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned that Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith are ending their rocky marriage – with a blockbuster secret divorce deal.

“For Will and Jada, holding it together these past few years has been tough because their marriage has been on life support for a long time,” an insider told Radar.

“They’re exhausted from trying to maintain the façade of a happy union,” the source continued. “They’ve decided to pull the plug in a carefully choreographed manner, [and] agree announcing their split at the end of the summer is the right move.”

The A-listers have already “worked out a confidential settlement to protect their $240 million fortune, and prepare their kids [son Jaden, 17, and daughter Willow, 14] for the fallout,” said the insider.

Hinting at their split earlier this year, the Bad Boys stud, 46, admitted that their marriage had “died” during an interview. Meanwhile, Pinkett Smith, 43, seemed to acknowledge Will’s notorious wandering eye, telling Howard Stern: “I’m not his watcher. He’s a grown man.”

She later added that she’s fine with Will’s ways, “as long as Will can look himself in the mirror and be okay.”

Rumors have persisted since 2013 that Smith romanced his Suicide Squad co-star Margot Robbie. He’s also been pictured without his wedding ring.

Pinkett Smith also allegedly cheated in 2011 with HawthoRNe co-star Marc Anthony.

“They tried to fix things with therapy, [but] it’s not happening,” explained the source.

Kevin Hart Says His Biggest Fear Is Finding Out His Son Will Turn Out Gay

In a new interview with Rolling Stone Magazine comedian Kevin Hartexplains that his son’s sexuality is no laughing matter. Kevin admits that as a straight man, his number one job is to make sure his son doesn’t turn out to be homosexual…
“One of my biggest fears is my son growing up and being gay. That’s a fear. Keep in mind, I’m not homophobic. . . . Be happy. Do what you want to do. But me, as a heterosexual male, if I can prevent my son from being gay, I will.

“It’s about my fear. I’m thinking about what I did as a dad, did I do something wrong, and if I did, what was it? Not that I’m not gonna love my son or think about him any differently. The funny thing within that joke is it’s me getting mad at my son because of my own insecurities — I panicked. It has nothing to do with him, it’s about me. That’s the difference between bringing a joke across that’s well thought-out and saying something just to ruffle feathers.

Madonna: It’s just the beginning for streaming service Tidal

Despite many reports speculating otherwise, co founder Madonna has gone on record to say this is just the beginning for the new streaming service!

NEW YORK | Madonna, who co-owns Tidal with Jay Z, Beyonce and others, says it’s just the beginning for the streaming service that’s had some troubles since its launch in March.

“It’s just the beginning, so we’re working out a lot of kinks and hopefully we’re going to build something unique and amazing that’s going to attract a lot of people,” the 56-year-old singer said in a recent interview.

Tidal, which offers a basic subscription for $10 and a high-quality audio one for $20, hasn’t made a splash like its announcement did a few months ago, when Rihanna, Kanye West, Daft Punk, Nicki Minaj, Jack White and others stood onstage in solidarity along with Madonna, Beyonce and Jay Z.

Since then, Tidal announced a family plan and discount for students. The company also lost its interim CEO last month.

“It’s important that people understand we didn’t create Tidal, we didn’t put this together, we didn’t all join forces because we’re broke and we want more money. The idea is we want to support other artists and we want people to understand this is our heart, this is our work, and we want people to recognize that and we want other artists to have a chance,” Madonna said.

What do you think? Will Tidal ever get it together?

“We live in a society now where everybody just expects everything to be for free, but you don’t get a house for free; you have to pay somebody to build it,” she added.

Other artist-owners of Tidal include Arcade Fire, Alicia Keys, Usher, Chris Martin, Calvin Harris, deadmau5, Jason Aldean and J. Cole.
