Atlanta rapper 2 Chainz dropped his music video for his single "Quarantine Thick" featuring rap newcomer Mulatto, aka Big Latto.

The video features some of Atlanta's thickest and talented strippers who twerk and drop it low in every room of a rented mansion.

Big Latto raps: "Got your favorite rapper in my DM tryna taste me / But I got my own bands so sh*t like that don't phase me."

At the end of the video, 2 Chainz and a few strippers ride off in a street legal $120,000 Pro ATV that Kanye West gifted him for his birthday.

Rapper Saweetie reached a milestone in her career with her highest debut on Billboard's Hot 100 chart.

A week after earning her third RIAA certification for her single "Tap In," Saweetie's "Back to the Streets" premiered at No. 76 on Billboard's Hot 100.

The song, off her upcoming Pretty B*tch Music album, is her highest debut ever on Billboard.

Saweetie, best known as rapper Quavo's girlfriend, earned ridicule and scorn when she urged women to throw away their men if they don't splurge on a Birkin handbag.

The coveted Hermès Birkin bags retail for over $20,000. But gently lived-in Birkin bags can be found on eBay or other sites for less than half that.

Hip-Hop fans say Tory Lanez is dead to them after he attempted to profit off the shooting incident involving Megan Thee Stallion.

Megan, 25, claimed she was shot in the foot in July, following an argument with Tory after the pair attended a party in the Hollywood Hills.

The rapper declined to speak publicly about the shooting until he tweeted on Thursday: "To my fans … I'm sorry for my silence... but respectfully .. I got time today ... 9 PM PST."

Young Thug and Chris Brown dropped their new animated music video for "Say You Love Me", on Monday. The single is off their mixtape Slime & B, which dropped 5 months ago.

Both men have something in common: they fail miserably with the ladies. So they try their luck with two animated women in a different dimension. But the 2 cartoon cuties swerve them even in another dimension.

In real life, Thugger complained about the lack of intimacy in a post on his Instagram Story: "Ain't had no pu**y in so long man gotta be 'bout a month," he wrote.

It isn't clear if women are avoiding him because of his reputation, or if the Covid pandemic scared them off.

Atlanta is wide open, so it must be the former.

The video was directed by Dark Matter FX.

Black Twitter isn't feeling Jay Z's bars on Pharrell Williams' new track titled "Entrepreneur," set for release on Friday, Aug. 21.

The 50-year-old rapper teamed up with Pharrell, 47, for the new track, released in conjunction with the new TIME magazine issue "The New American Revolution" curated by Pharrell.

The issue celebrates the Black revolution in America. "I couldn't be more grateful to curate :The Next American Revolution" -- a special issue of @TIME Magazine that envisions a Black Future in an America where all people are actually created equal," Pharrell tweeted.

In a snippet of the song on Apple Music, Jay Z urges supporting Black businesses and being Black business owners.

But he got off on the wrong foot by diminishing Black Twitter.

"Black Twitter, what's that? When Jack gets paid, do you? For every one Gucci, support two FUBU’s."
 

Black Twitter was quick to denounce Jay Z for being out of touch with the times.

One Twitter user wrote:

"Jay Z today: Why y'all on black twitter? And buying Gucci instead of supporting Fubu?

"Jay Z four months from now: I'm very pleased to announce I'm collaborating with Gucci on their black twitter line."

Others chime in, knocking Jay Z for being too preachy about buying Black when he supported white brands in his music for decades.

"jay z for 25 years: “gucci, louis v, richard mille, goyard, fendi, louboutin, cartier, mercedes, in the box seats with the mink on brushing shoulders with the owners”

jay z in 2020: "buy more fubu."
