Face it, we're all culture vultures in one way or another, so it's only right that BET.com brings you #TheWarmUp on the daily tip. And remember that keeping it buck doesn't mean that shade is being thrown. (Word to Nicki.) We just like to keep it honest and real when it comes to our extended family. Read on for the hottest, most shocking moments of the past 24 hours.
— In case you've been living under a rock, Christina Milian has been rumored to be dating none other than YMCMB's head honcho, Lil Wayne, for a few months. Though neither has confirmed or denied, the rapper apparently jumped to her defense in his new song, "Take Kare," featuring Young Thug. Will they be the couple to root for in 2015? It's a messy one, but all's fair in love...
— In interesting news, Cam'ron has started selling #CamEbola masks for folks to wear in public. But, uh... his face is plastered right across the front of them. And yes, in case you were wondering, he is in fact rocking baby pink in the photo. #wecantdeal
— In the spirit of the unofficial Year of the Joint Tour, YG and A$AP Ferg are joining forces for the BestCoast Connection Tour. The "Click Clack" duo will kick off their tour next month in Philly and will continue through the end of the year.
— Karrueche versus Jhené Aiko? Well, so says social media. The Internet is buzzing with a brand new rumor regarding Chris Brown and his lady and this time the e-streets are saying that their demise is due to his alleged friendship with the R&B songbird. We don't buy this one because we're pretty sure that the lovebirds are way beyond petty rumors like this.
— Just when you thought Wiz Khalifa and Future seemed to have moved on from their exes, Amber Rose and Ciara, respectively, they were caught lamenting over women on Mike WiLL Made It's "Overrated." What is overrated? Women and their nether regions, of course. Unfortunately for these two, who allegedly cheated on their exes, it looks crazy trying to blow off steam in this way. Don't believe us? Listen to the track here.
— After a dope cypher last night with her love, Papoose, Remy Ma has released the cover art to her long-awaited and highly anticipated mixtape, I'm Around. It's expected to be one for the books since this will be her first post-prison full-length project.
— In righteous and conscious news, Alicia Keys held a #BringBackOurGirlsNOW protest Tuesday to acknowledge the six-month anniversary of the abduction of over 200 Nigerian girls by Boko Haram. In the midst of all of the celebrity fluff and white noise, we need to see more stories like this to keep us centered and aware. Thanks, Mrs. Dean.
— Trey Songz and Chris Brown got all of their rabid fans going over the weekend when they released four joint tracks to the masses. This was clearly an effort to keep folks engaged with them socially in the days leading up to their joint tour, which was announced about a month ago. We're sure this tour will sell out quickly. Check out their hot remixed tracks here.
— Oh, and just in case Big Sean's and Ariana Grande's not-so-discreet dates weren't enough confirmation, the songbird recently confirmed with Britain's The Telegraph that she is in fact dating the Detroit MC. She said that he is one of the "most amazing men in the world" along with her grandfather and brother. She also said, "I think the world of him, and he's an amazing person. That's kind of all there is to it." Ahhhh, we love it! More duets to come? We sure hope so!
— We here at #TheWarmUp are wishing King of R&B Usher a very happy and healthy 36th birthday! Keep on gliding, singing and leading the pack, Ursha!
