YNW Melly’s Little Brother, YNW BSlime, Released His Debut Album at Only 12

Published

According to Pitchfork, BSlime’s older brother basically forced him to come to the studio with him. In between battles on Fortnite, Melly would threaten not to let BSlime use his credit card to buy more V-Bucks if he didn’t come with him to the studio. The rapper then encouraged his younger brother to give freestyling a try — surprising everyone.

While still a preteen, BSlime clearly had a knack for freestyling like his older brother did. It wasn’t long before he started making music of his own.

BSlime’s first single, “Hot Sauce,” was released in July 2019, though he already had a decent following from the freestyles he’d previously released. The single’s release was his fans’ reward for helping him reach 100,000 followers on Instagram. 

“Thank You Everybody Reached 100k Like I Promised Hot Sauce Out Now,” he captioned his post announcing the single’s release on July 8.

But that wasn’t all BSlime had in store. At the time, he was already working on his debut album.

What’s in the box?! Samantha Bee pried open her Emmy receptacle to get what she rightfully deserved: ‘a little coffin for alcohol’

As Brad Pitt once asked about a mysterious receptacle in “Seven,” “What’s in the box?!” That’s what the Emmy nominees for Best Variety Talk Series might have been thinking about the packages they received on Sunday night in their remote locations during the virtual broadcast. For John Oliver, who won for “Last Week Tonight” for the fifth year in a row, it contained an Emmy, naturally. But what about the others? “Full Frontal” host Samantha Bee was determined to get to the bottom of it. Scroll down to watch the video she shared on social media below.

“Oh it’s like a little coffin for alcohol!” said Bee after she pried open the outer case. And when she finally got to the champagne bottle inside the little coffin, her cameraman (and husband) Jason Jones immediately said, “Somebody Google that. How much does that cost?” It didn’t take long to find out that the Emmys gave Bee a $28 bottle of bubbly. “Congratulations on all your hard work!” Jones joked. I’m guessing Emmy producers used most of their budget on the alpaca.

Don’t feel too bad for Bee, though. She didn’t win Best Variety Talk Series this year, but she’s still an Emmy winner. She and her team won Best Variety Special Writing in 2017 for “Full Frontal’s” “Not the White House Correspondents’ Dinner.” And Bee is a perennial nominee, so there’s a good chance she’ll get a couple more chances at Emmys in 2021. But in the meantime, at least the virtual ceremony meant that she didn’t have to wait until the show was over to drown her sorrows. Bottoms up!

Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Curry Review

Published

on

By

When I say I eat pumpkin everything during the fall, I really mean it. Pumpkin breakfasts! Pumpkin desserts! And now pumpkin curry. Trader Joe’s spicy pumpkin curry is exactly what it sounds like — it’s a simmer sauce that’s a blend of pumpkin spices and curry spices. There’s also a kick to it that doesn’t pack too much heat, so it’s not overwhelming. Overall, this is a Trader Joe’s product that I definitely recommend.

The pumpkin curry is billed as a simmer sauce, so you can use it in any number of dishes. I imagine it would work really well to cook chicken or tofu in, I just conveniently don’t cook chicken or tofu. To try it, though, I warmed it up on the stove and ate it with some rice. The sauce is thick and creamy and warms up in no time at all. You could also easily throw this in a bowl in the microwave to heat it up if you’re into that.

As much as I love pumpkin, I was a little concerned with the blend of pumpkin and curry. Curry is such a strong flavor, and pumpkin is not nearly as potent, so I kinda assumed this sauce would just taste like curry. I was pleasantly surprised to note that it is a very layered sauce that showcases all of the components. While curry is the predominant flavor, the hint of pumpkin really comes through. The sauce also has the standard pumpkin spice ingredients to fill out the pumpkin flavor, along with some sugar and coconut milk. The zing comes from red jalapeño, but it’s very subtle. It provides the heat you might expect from curry, but it only lingers in the back of your mouth. No burning here!

If you’re looking for a tasty fall option for savory dishes, this is definitely a good item to pick up at Trader Joe’s. It also comes in at an awesome price point — less than $3 for a jar, and the jar will go a long way depending on how you use it. I had an entire bowl of rice with plenty of sauce, and I could easily get three or four more meals out of what’s left. If you’re cooking a whole meal for a family, you probably need the entire jar, but again, it’s less than $3.

I absolutely recommend grabbing a few jars of this if you spot it on the shelves at Trader Joe’s. We all know how quickly limited-edition items sell out, and this one will most certainly be no different. Plus, it won’t be on shelves for very much longer anyway, so grab a few jars (or, like, a dozen, no judgment) to keep in the cupboard for the next few months. Come December, you’ll be glad you did!
