J. Cole Previews New Music & Creates A New Instagram Account miixtapechiick

Earlier this afternoon, J. Cole surprised fans with a rare Instagram Story post directing them to a new account, @mightdeletelater26. The “26” in the handle pays homage to Fayetteville’s 2-6 and is a clear indication that this is Cole’s burner account.

In a 10-minute video on the new account, J. Cole takes us behind the scenes of his upcoming album, “The Fall Off.” During the video, the “First Person Shooter” rapper talks about how he’s fallen off in his production skills, shows studio collaborations with Tay Keith and Metro Boomin, and a recording session of the track ‘She Knows,’ among other highlights.

Titled “Might Delete Later, Vol. 1,” the vlog offers fans a sneak peek of a brand new track where the “First Person Shooter” draws parallels between his highly anticipated album and Jay-Z‘s legendary debut “Reasonable Doubt.”

“There’s not a rap n—a breathing that could outlast/ The Fall-Off is like Hov dropping Reasonable Doubt last,” he spits.

Meek Mill Drops Vory from Dreamchasers After Leaked Footage Shows Him Threatening Girlfriend miixtapechiick

Meek Mill has recently severed ties with Dreamchasers artist Vory following the emergence of a troubling video depicting Vory threatening his girlfriend with violence.

Vory, who has been associated with Dreamchasers since 2022, boasts an impressive musical portfolio with collaborations alongside prominent artists such as Kanye West on three tracks from ‘DONDA’ – ‘God Breathed,’ ‘Jonah,’ and ‘No Child Left Behind.’ He has also worked with Gunna, NAV and others. His debut album, ‘Lost Souls,’ was released in 2022.

Taking to Twitter, Meek Mill announced Vory being dropped from the Dreamchasers imprint, citing concerns about Vory’s mental state. Meek stated, “This guy is not a dream chaser! He has a mental problem! We cutting ties we don’t care how ya music sound.”


The decision came after Vory allegedly avoided Meek’s attempts at communication, with Meek expressing frustration over the situation. Meek emphasized, “He been ducking my calls for months telling people I’m threatening him… stopped alot of people dude he is not dreamchaser!”

In response, Vory’s ex-girlfriend addressed the incident on her Instagram Stories, accusing him of trying to tarnish her reputation. She revealed, “@Vory you are a disgusting person, you want to paint me out to be this ‘whore’ / bad person. When it’s you!! I don’t want to be with you or take your Valentine’s Day gift or spend time with you as a family because of all this shit you’ve put me through for TWO years so you go on social media and tell lies and try to spread this false narrative.”

Vory initially gained recognition in 2015 with his debut mixtape ‘Overdose‘ under the alias King Vory. The project featured collaborations with local talents such as Wuntayk Timmy and Bryson Tiller, along with Lil Bibby, A.D., and Johnny Cinco across its 18 tracks.

Trottie Y Gizzle, Trottie Moula, Ricky Mazarati, and More Face New RICO Conspiracy Indictment miixtapechiick

Boston-based rappers Trottie Y Gizzle, born Jaquori Lyons; Trottie Moula, born Trevon Bell; Ricky Mazarati, born Rickquille McKinney; and 37 others found themselves at the center of a federal indictment in Boston on Wednesday, Feb. 14. The charges stem from a two-year investigation into gang violence, resulting in over 40 individuals associated with the Heath Street Gang facing charges ranging from racketeering conspiracy to drug trafficking, firearms offenses, wire fraud, and various financial frauds, including COVID-related fraud.

The indictment, released by the U.S. Department of Justice, reveals that the Heath Street Gang members and associates are implicated in a series of murders, attempted murders, and shootings, primarily targeting rival gangs such as the Mission Hill Gang and the H-Block Gang in Boston.

Furthermore, the accused are alleged to have used the Mildred C. Hailey Apartments as a hub for drug trafficking activities, establishing extensive drug distribution networks across Massachusetts, Maine, and California over several years. The gang reportedly utilized social media platforms to facilitate the distribution of controlled substances, including fentanyl, fentanyl pills, cocaine, cocaine base, and marijuana, employing posts for advertising, negotiation, and arrangement of drug sales.

The financial aspect of the indictment includes accusations of engaging in organized retail theft, where members openly stole merchandise from various stores in Massachusetts and New Hampshire since 2019. Additionally, the Heath Street Gang is implicated in widespread fraud related to the CARES Act, including loan and unemployment fraud.

Acting Massachusetts U.S. Attorney Joshua S. Levy, in a press conference, highlighted the defendants’ boastful display of violence on social media, featuring images of high-powered weapons, gang signs, and taunts directed at rival gangs.

“They bragged about their violence on social media and in texts. As you can see from some of these photos, they carried high-powered weapons, they made gang signs, and mocked gang rivals.”


The charges, including RICO conspiracy, conspiracy to distribute controlled substances, possession with intent to distribute controlled substances, felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition, possession of a firearm in furtherance of violent or drug trafficking crime, conspiracy to interfere with commerce by robbery (Hobbs Act conspiracy), and wire fraud, carry severe penalties. These penalties range from up to 20 years in prison for RICO conspiracy to mandatory consecutive sentences of five years in prison up to life for possession of a firearm in furtherance of violent or drug trafficking crime.
