GAME. BLOUSES.

The Chicago Cubs won their first World Series home game since … wait for it: 1945.

The Cubs defeated the Cleveland Indians, 3-2, on Sunday night thanks to some help from pitchers Jon Lester and Aroldis Chapman, and now the Indians lead the series, 3-2. To Game 6 we go!

BLESSINGS

R&B singer Alicia Keys will have a new album out soon called Here. To get some of her die-hard fans even more excited for the upcoming album, Keys decided to direct message (DM) some of her fans the tracklist. How cool is that?

Sidenote: If DMX ever makes a Christmas album, I would love to be DM’d the tracklist to that automatic classic. It would be one of the best Christmas presents ever.

SOCIAL STATUS

Speaking of music, hip-hop group A$AP Mob decided to bless us with a new project. The new mixtape, Cozy Tapes Vol. 1: Friends, is 12 tracks long and features artists such as Lil Uzi Vert, Tyler The Creator, Onyx, Wiz Khalifa, BJ the Chicago Kid, Offset, Lil Yachty and MadeinTYO.

So far, the project is being associated with many fire emojis.
