1. Get Well Soon, Chance!
He’s only 21 but Chance the Rapper has a very promising music career ahead of him. After killing it at Coachella a couple weekends ago, he sent some fear when he had to nix his sets this past Sunday over an illness. Although feeling better now, could his road to recovery take longer than expected? Rap-Up has some info:
Chance the Rapper is recovering at home after falling ill last week.
His manager, Patrick Corcoran, posted a letter on Twitter updating fans on the Acid Rap MC’s condition.
Just hours before his performance during the second weekend of Coachella on Sunday, the 21-year-old canceled due to an undisclosed illness.
His manager has since revealed that Chance had 104-degree fever and was unable to speak due to the inflammation in his throat. He was admitted to the hospital and has since returned to his L.A. home where he is recovering.
His doctors attributed his illness to a combination of the flu and tonsillitis. He is scheduled to see a specialist this week to determine if surgery is necessary.
Per doctors’ orders, he has canceled his remaining shows during the week of April 23-27. (Rap-Up)
Get well soon, Chance! #SOHHWhatchaThink?
2. Good Eats
Is Jay Z back to eating healthy? Could he have put the fondue down and tried some greener delights? Is Beyoncé behind this alleged diet-changing return? The Daily Mail UK has info:
They completed 22 days of a vegan diet back in December. But it looks like Jay-Z and Beyonce don’t need a challenge to go back to cruelty-free eating. The 44-year-old hip-hop mogul and his pop singer wife, 32, were seen leaving the Crossroads restaurant in Los Angeles on Tuesday. The Mediterranean-themed vegan-friendly restaurant by Chef Tal Ronnen is a favourite amoung celebrities that have chosen a meat and dairy-less lifestyle. Beyonce tried going incognito for the midday meal as she left hiding her face behind an Apple Macbook laptop with a purple case. (The Daily Mail)
Does this mean they are back to being vegan? Could they have just wanted some non-meat and non-dairy food options? Is the diet back on? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
3. She’s Back
It’s no secret Nicki Minaj is back in full effect but with all of this new music and a recent album promise, should we expect her LP to drop in a few weeks? Rap-Up has the skinny:
Sorry Barbz, The Pink Print is not coming May 5. Nicki Minaj has shut down the rumored release date for her third album.
Earlier this month, the rapper tweeted “Cinco De Mayo,” prompting some fans to assume that the follow-up to 2012′s Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded would arrive that day.
But she put the rumors to rest when “The Insider” caught up with her at the premiere of The Other Woman.
“My album is not dropping on May 5, hell no,” said Nicki. “My fans are once again thinking they know something that they really don’t.”
She is, however, putting out a song in a week-and-a-half, which may explain the May 5 date. (Rap-Up)
When will we see the full album? With Nicki going back to her hip-hop roots, could the music only get better? Is she going to keep teasing us? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
