JAY-Z Will Not Be Performing At 2018 Grammy’s Despite Reports


JAY-Z will not be performing at this weekend’s 2018 Grammy Awards despite recent reports suggesting that he will.

Hov is going into the Grammys with the most nominations this year and everything assumed that he would be taking the stage possibly with Beyonce to perform “Family Feud” or even “4:44.” JAY-Z made a grand return to the music scene last year with his blockbuster album 4:44. That project is one of the most respected albums last year and will go down in history as one of the rap legend’s best body of work.

In the fall last year, JAY-Z went on tour to promote the album and that tour turned out to be his highest grossing solo tour ever. So it’s safe to say that he has been breaking new boundaries. Last week there was some reporting floating around online claiming that Hov will be performing at the Grammy’s, but now Hits Daily Double is countering those chatters with new reports that he has no plans to take the stage.

The Grammy’s has already announced an all-star lineup including acts like Bruno Mars, Rihanna, DJ Khaled, Kendrick Lamar, SZA, Childish Gambino and more. The last time JAY-Z performed at the Grammy’s was back in 2014 when he took the stage with Beyonce to perform “Drunk In Love: from her self-titled album. This year a performance on the big stage would be like icing on the cake for Jay’s fans given the success of his 4:44 album.

Bruno Mars and Cardi B will be performing their new hit “Finesse” while DJ Khaled and Rihanna will be performing their monster hit “Wild Thoughts. The Grammy Awards will be broadcast live on CBS from Madison Square Gardens in New York on Sunday night. Stay tuned to DancehallHipHop for more reporting on the Grammy’s, particularly the Best Reggae Album category. It will be interesting to see who win.


JAY-Z and Beyonce Drop Star-Studded Cinematic “Family Feud” Video


JAY-Z and Beyonce delivered a star-studded cinematic video for “Family Feud.”

The short film-themed cut is what everyone on social media is talking about this weekend after the couple premiered it on TIDAL on Friday night. The stunning visual features some big name stars including Omari Hardwick, Jessica Chastain, Thandie Newton, America Ferrera, Michael B. Jordan, Rashida Jones, Mindy Kaling, Constance Wu, Brie Larson, Rosario Dawson, and many more. This is the first video from the album 4:44 that JAY-Z is making a cameo in and his wife Beyonce and daughter Blue Ivy Carter also appeared in the cut.

The video gets underway with a quote from James Baldwin that reads, “The wretched of the earth do not decide to become extinct, they resolve, on the contrary, to multiply: life is their weapon against life, life all that they have.”

The video begins in a setting dated to the year 2444 which pays homage to the album title and 4 is a significant number for JAY-Z. The storyline chronicles across several generations including the year 2050 where Susan Kelechi Watson plays an older Blue Ivy who was among a group of women who revised the Constitution. “America is a family and the whole family should be free,” Watson said. “It’s like I remember my father saying when I was a little girl: Nobody wins when the family feuds.”

Perhaps the most talked about part of the video is when JAY-Z, Blue Ivy, and Beyonce goes to church and the couple went into the confession booth with Hov on one side and his wife on the other side. The overall theme of the album 4:44 is one of confession with Hov admitting to infidelity and even going public about his mother being a lesbian. We’ve already seen nine other videos from the album and I guess the rap legend saved the best for last.

How Drake Cleverly Ended Meek Mill Beef On “Family Feud” With Lil Wayne


Drake may have just made a bold move to end his beef with Meek Mill.

The rappers have been beefing since 2015 when the Philly rapper fired off some tweets about Drizzy using a ghostwriter to pen his raps. Little did he know what was to come after that rant on social media. We’ve since learned that he did it because Nicki Minaj broke up with him and he wanted to get back at her. Of course, Drake emerged the victor from that feud using two fiery diss track including the Grammy-nominated single “Back To Back” and it took Meek days to respond with a diss track that earned him even more Ls.

Since then, both Drake and Meek Mill did their own interviews where they both admitted that they might never be friends ever again and their feud may just turn out to be forever. On Friday, Lil Wayne drops his new collaboration with his protege, “Family Feud,” and Drizzy used the opportunity to extend an olive branch of the sort to his foe who is now incarcerated on a 2-4 years prison sentence for probation violation.

“I need my paper long like “A Milli” verse, Or, too long like a sentence from a Philly judge, F**k is the point in all the beefing when we really blood, Nobody wins when the family feuds, ni**a,” Drake raps in his lengthy freestyle verse. In another line, he hinted that he isn’t really calling a truce, but nevertheless, he is sympathetic towards Meek Mill over his unjust sentencing. “But this isn’t all about calling truce, I’m still dishing out verbal abuse, That sh*t could get re-introduced if somebody got something they urging to prove, ni**a,” he continues to rap.

Since the height of their beef in the summer of 2015, both rappers have been taking subliminal shots at each other in their songs, but this is the first clear signs that they could make peace. Drake also took a jab at Donald Trump on the “Family Feud (Remix)” as well as stated that he wishes he could fix Lil Wayne beef with Cash Money/Universal Music. “Ayy, tell me if TD bank is approving loans, I’m thinking about paying Wayne what Universal owes, My ni**a spend a lifetime going platinum and gold,” Drizzy raps.

Do you think Drake and Meek Mill will make peace anytime soon?
