Tuesday night’s Episode 4 of TUF 17 drew an average audience of 1.2 million in the overnight ratings falling closely on par with the season average of 1.3 million viewers per episode. Episode 4 saw Team Jones earn its victory, and gain control of the picks when Collin Hart defeated Kevin Casey by controlling him on the ground for two uneventful rounds. Casey really showed no signs of aggression or urgency, and Hart, whom many saw as the underdog cruised to victory. With control of the pick, Jones matched up “Bubba” McDaniel against the youngest fighter in the house Kelvin Gastelum.
In other news, wrestling, which was part of the first modern Olympics and a U.S. strength in the Olympic games, was surprisingly cut from the Summer Games on Tuesday, beginning in 2020 games. The International Olympic Committee was expected to cut the sport of modern pentathlon but instead decided to remove wrestling based on criteria such as global participation and popularity.
Many former wrestlers are in an outrage, including former Olympic wrestler and WWF wrestling star the Iron Sheik, who claims he will suplex the people responsible if this isn’t resolved.

The Black Opera dropped their latest bit, a love song of sorts, entitled “Queen of Hearts” off at XXL for Valentine’s Day. The track is a mellow introspective rundown of all the things that “She” is, or could be, to her King. Who is “She”? Decide for yourself. The Black Opera and fellow creator Mayer Hawthorne, who is featured on the hook of this track, each have their own interpretation of the perfect “Queen of Hearts”.
Mayer Hawthorne, who has coined his new-school Motown sound, adds a spicy eloquence to the track while the TBOG’s speak on who their ideal Kueen is, and who she isn’t. Lines like “She could be my Queen to be” are greatly opposed by others such as “Im not tryina make a hoe a baby momma, drama”. This song is more than your average Valentine’s Day bullshit. Treat your girl to the MP3 of “Queen of Hearts”, not dinner at the Sizzler tonight, player.
Message From The Black Opera:
“While in search of his Queen of Hearts, or some would say, KUEENZ of Heart, the King was not very trusting with any of his beautiful possibilities. Once he learned how to trust himself, then and only then, was he able to trust and L O V E Without A Limit.”
L.M.S. steps in the booth not to just get things off his chest, but more to solidify the reason as to why he keeps writing and rhyming. From the muslims saying ‘Assalamu alaikum’ to those drinking Ole english and eating bacon, anyone can relate to the lyrics L.M.S. delivers. Finding a purpose, a reason …is only the beginning. Now take a ride with L.M.S. on this first single as he steers you to his upcoming mixtape, The Warrior dropping in early March. Buckle up, because this ride will be intense.

World-renowned Russian producer PROXY has unleashed the final chapter of his MUSIC FROM THE EASTBLOCK JUNGLES series, his two-part debut album. Available now on Dim Mak Records in North America and on Turbo Recordings internationally, MUSIC FROM THE EASTBLOCK JUNGLES PART II takes fans on his next journey of dark synths and vibes. The first half of the album, MUSIC FROM THE EASTBLOCK JUNGLES PART I, is also available now. Yesterday, PROXY partnered with Noisey, Vice’s new music channel, to premiere the music video for Raw, a single from MUSIC FROM THE EASTBLOCK JUNGLES PART I.
Directed by Yoonha Park, the video perfectly depicts the grim and oppressive world in which the MUSIC FROM THE EASTBLOCK JUNGLES series was created. Featuring images of self-inflected tattoos, Russian military propaganda videos and sweaty, underground confinements, the Raw music video conveys borderline insanity and commands an all-out social revolt.
“The story of your life…who the hell cares? Nobody, if the money ain’t there” Directed by SyncoPatience, “Crumbs” is the third visual project from Original Text’s (Ari Why x Tito Fuerte) debut collaborative EP, The Out Number. “Crumbs” tells a story of the Have’s vs. The Have-Not’s, Reality vs. Perception and Responsibility vs. Ignorance. Modern life creates a struggle for everyone to receive what they feel they’ve earned and deserved. A line is drawn between Giver and Receiver…but there are two sides to every story, and sometimes those lines can be blurry and faded.
