Danielle Bregoli is not yet a household name, but this 14 year old girl has been on the rise in 2017. Her claim to fame were her two appearances on TV's "Dr. Phil" where her mother beg for help because her little girl was "out of control." It was there that Dani coined her catchphrase, "Cash Me Outside, How Bout That." Since those shows aired, she has gotten more fame on social media, a clothing line, a rap single and, unfortunately for her, someone did indeed "catch her outside."
Now. all the efforts to become a star are finally paying off. It was announced today (Sept. 15) that she just signed a record deal with Atlantic Records, under her rap moniker Bhad Bhabie.
Bregoli inked the deal after her debut single, “These Heaux” opened at No. 77 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Along with the chart success, the music video has 21.7 million YouTube views, and the track itself has 3.6 million streams on Spotify. All of this engagement lead to the song charting in less than a month.
After a tremendously successful season 42, Saturday Night Live (SNL) is looking to start their upcoming 43rd season where they left off, on top. To achieve this, they went and got arguably the biggest name in hip hop today to kick off their new season, Brooklyn's own Jay-Z.
On Thursday's (August 24) edition of Weekend Update: Summer Edition, Update anchors Michael Che and Colin Jost announced that when the Saturday night sketch comedy show returns on September 30, Jay Z will be the musical guest. The host for that evening will be Ryan Gosling.
It is not yet known what songs will be performed on the show, but it is expected to feature songs from Jay-Z's 13th studio album, 4:44, which was released in June of this year.
This will mark the fourth time Jay-Z will be the featured musical guest on SNL.

If there is one thing we all learned from "The Dave Chappelle Show" it's that Dylan from MTV's "Making the Band" spits hot fire.
The "Making The Band" parody is still one of the most popular skits from the three seasons of the sketch comedy show. Its popularity is thanks in part to Dave Chappelle's hilarious impersonation of Dylan, one of the members of Da Band, a hip-hop group managed by Diddy (also played in the sketch by Chappelle). Before Friday (August 11), Chappelle had never met the man who takes up all the spots on the top five MCs list, but all that changed at the House of Vans in New York City.
As you can see in the Instagram video below, they quoted some of the sketch's iconic lines, and Chappelle recorded a quick promo for Dylan's upcoming album Pain 2 Power.
You can cop Dylan's new album, Pain 2 Power, on September 15, 2017.

For those unfamiliar with the band, Linkin Park is an American rock band from Agoura Hills, California. Formed in 1996, the band rose to international fame with their debut album Hybrid Theory (2000), which was certified Diamond by the RIAA in 2005 and multi-Platinum in several other countries. Their following studio album Meteora continued the band's success, topping the Billboard 200 album chart in 2003, and was followed by extensive touring and charity work around the world.
Linkin Park was scheduled for tour, no official statement has been made whether or not the band will continue without Chester. I hope he finds a peace in heaven that he could not find here on earth. Thank you for getting me through so many internal battles with your gifted songwriting & vocals. Rock on Chester. You're a true legend.
