BTN STAFF

During his NYC show for his  Amerikkkana Tour at Terminal 5, Joey Badass gave one of his fans something that he will probably always remember. Joey brought out a fan name Juan and informed the crowd that Juan had been going through some devastating times. To help him cope with it, Joey gave Juan his platinum plaque that he received for his single ‘Devastated.’ It was cool gesture that hopefully will help the young man get through his situation.

I got upset after finding out that the Chicago Police Department and Chicago’s Business Affair and Consumer Protection cancelled a recent show for G Herbo in Chicago. This is the second time within a month that G Herbo was scheduled to headline a show in Chicago and the powers that be cancelled it. The first was the Takeover Jam, a popular annual concert sponsored by Chicago powerhouse radio station WGCI and its parent company iHeartRadio. The second was a scheduled show tomorrow at Chicago’s Vic Theatre. The promoter of the show Peter Jideonwo of Pete’s House said he try to compromise and talk to city officials, but they haven’t budge.  “Everybody needs to sit down and have a conversation on how to proceed with throwing shows,” he said “The kids need something to do, and you’re telling the kids they need to stay off the street and ‘don’t do this, don’t do that.” he continued.

J. Cole’s Album Artwork Reveals Multiple Meanings Behind K.O.D Acronym

By: Jarrod Horton

Staff Writer

Yesterday (April 18th) J. Cole released the artwork for his K.O.D album dropping tomorrow on 04/20. The artist is seen on the front cover with a painting of himself in a king’s cloak and crown. Below him are paintings of children faces doing drugs like lean, coke and pills. The back cover also has kids on it, but on this picture, the drugs are beneath them.

The front and back cover caused the internet to go in thought mode and decipher a deeper meaning behind the art. The best explanation I saw was from a Twitter user who broke down how the artwork correlated with the different meanings of K.O.D.

King Overdose, Kill Our Demons, Kids On Drugs or simply K.O.D. Doesn’t matter what you call it, as long as we can call it dope (no pun intended). Check out the tracklisting below:

  1. “Intro”
  2. “K.O.D.”
  3. “Photograph”
  4. “The Cut Off” feat. Kill Edward
  5. “ATM”
  6. “Kevin’s Heart”
  7. “Motiv8”
  8. “BRACKETS”
  9. “Once An Addict (Interlude)”
  10. “FRIENDS” feat. Kill Edward
  11. “Window Pain (Outro)”
  12. “1985 (Intro To “The Fall Off”)”
