Watch Chance the Rapper perform a new song he wrote two days ago

On Monday, Chance the Rapper performed a new untitled track on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert — a song, he revealed, that was written only two days before.

Chance explained that he'd originally planned to perform the unreleased song “Grown Ass Kids” from his most recent mixtape Coloring Book, but decided at the last minute to try something new instead. Why not, right?

"We had to come up with a song in a matter of days and I wanted to do something fresh. Not to lie, I've been in the studio a lot lately, cooking up some yammers. They're honestly great,” he said.

The new track features R&B breakout star Daniel Caesar. It's also classic Chance the Rapper: thought provoking lyrics accompanied by a medley of gospel and rap. Read more...

Sports Illustrated fumbles its 'unity' cover

On Tuesday morning, Sports Illustrated unveiled the magazine's cover for the week of Oct. 2, 2017. And though the cover professes a focus on unity in sports, it has the internet divided.

THIS WEEK'S COVER: In a nation divided, the sports world is coming together

— Sports Illustrated (@SInow) September 26, 2017

Under the banner "A Nation Divided, Sports United," the cover features prominent pro athletes — including rivals LeBron James (who called the president a "bum" earlier this week) and Steph Curry (who rejected the president's White House invite) — as well as much-maligned NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shahid Khan, and Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr, all locking arms.

Bill Gates has finally switched to an Android phone

At last, Bill Gates has joined us in the present. The Microsoft co-founder announced in an interview with Fox News Sunday that he's now using an Android phone. 

The move was probably inevitable. Windows on mobile has effectively been a dead platform ever since Microsoft gutted its phone division two years ago. While Windows 10 technically works on phones, there's been pretty much zero support from hardware makers and app developers outside of Microsoft.

Gates told Fox that the phone he uses is an "Android phone with a lot of Microsoft software." This could suggest that he's using the Microsoft Edition of the Samsung Galaxy S8, or perhaps he's just downloaded Microsoft's lineup of apps, available across Android systems. Read more...

Photos reveal dire situation unfolding in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria

Hurricane Maria, which struck Puerto Rico on Sept. 20 as a vicious Category 4 storm, has left the U.S. territory in ruins. The power grid across the island is down, as are communications. Most residents have no access to safe drinking water, necessary medications, or even money, since ATMs don't work. 

The storm crossed over the island from southeast to northwest, bringing hurricane force winds of 74 miles per hour or greater, to the entire territory. Hurricane Maria was also a prolific rainmaker, dumping more than 40 inches of water in some areas, causing mudslides and widespread flooding.

'Game of Thrones' sets directors for the final season and it's all becoming too real

Game of Thrones will turn to veteran directors to helm its final six episodes — including two who are arguably the biggest experts in Westeros outside of George R. R. Martin himself.

We've confirmed that David Nutter, Miguel Sapochnik, and showrunners David Benioff & D.B Weiss will be the only four directors on Season 8. 

There's no word yet on how many episodes each director will tackle, or in which order, but sources indicate that Benioff and Weiss plan to direct the series finale and bring their iteration of Martin's story to a close. In recent seasons, a director has usually helmed two episodes, shot concurrently, although with Benioff and Weiss' other responsibilities, it's possible Nutter or Sapochnik will take on an extra and leave the showrunners with the finale.

A little rocket will launch some tiny satellites to space, and isn't that cute

A little rocket will launch a clutch of tiny satellites to space for its next test flight. 

Rocket Lab — a U.S. and New Zealand-based company — has been working toward the second test flight of its Electron rocket since its first test in May. 

But unlike the first test, this second launch, which is currently slated for sometime next month, is actually expected to deliver some small satellites to orbit.

Elon Musk rips Mercedes' electric vehicle goals, Mercedes hits back

After Elon Musk expressed disappointment with the electric vehicle investments of Daimler, the parent company of automaker Mercedes-Benz, the company shot back at Musk with its grander electric ambitions. 

On Sunday, a USA TODAY Money tweet reported Daimler's commitment of $1 billion dollars to upgrade an existing Mercedes factory and build a new battery plant in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, where Mercedes plans to produce its futuristic, all-electric SUVs. Musk, however, was not impressed with just a $1 billion dollar investment from such a massive, legacy automaker.

Steelers player has top-selling NFL jersey after standing for anthem, but his story isn't what you think

It's not surprising that, as the tense debate about NFL players actions during the national anthem at games continues, some stories are getting a bit fussed up. 

Such is the case of Pittsburgh Steelers player Alejandro Villanueva.

Before Sunday's game between the Steelers and the Chicago Bears, the Pittsburgh Steelers weren't on the field as the anthem was played at Soldier Field in Chicago. But Villanueva stood in a tunnel leading to the field with his hand over his heart.

Once the Steelers did take the field, they were loudly booed by the Chicago crowd as their absence was seen as another act of defiance. Read more...

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau is as confused as you are about Cersei's lies

Siblings always fight, but on Game of Thrones is a tad more complicated. Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who plays Jaime, is well aware of fans' burning questions, and he too is unsure about Cersei's pregnancy and whether his character will kill his sister/lover.

"It makes sense," he said in a new interview with InStyle. "He killed the Mad King and now he’s killing the Mad Queen." A Mad Queen who's pregnant — well, who claims to be pregnant."

It’d be like the Red Wedding 2," Coster-Waldau said, referencing the massacre that began with the stabbing of a pregnant Talisa Stark (Oona Chaplin). "That would be really horrible. I hope he wouldn’t." Read more...

'Kevin Can Wait' killing off its lead actress was the most WTF thing on TV

Now in its second season, CBS's Kevin Can Wait is a massive success, averaging over nine million viewers on Monday nights. But in the Season 2 premiere, the show quickly and coldly killed off Kevin's wife, played by Erinn Hayes, with just a throwaway comment followed by a lukewarm joke. 

Fans were shocked; even How I Met Your Mother's contentious finale reveal of a big death had more sensitivity, and people hated it.

Will Kevin Can Wait suffer for its insensitivity? Probably not, but Twitter was aflame.

Netflix wants to team with airline carriers to bring streaming to the sky in 2018

In an attempt to expand streaming access (and make traveling more bearable), Netflix is taking flight in 2018.

As Variety reports, the company announced at Monday's 2017 APEX Expo that it's looking to partner with airline carriers in hopes of sharing its low-bandwidth mobile streaming technology with them to improve in-flight wi-fi speeds.

That means you could soon be streaming your favorite movies and television shows in the air with ease. 

SEE ALSO: Netflix's prices are insanely low—enjoy it while you can

The idea is that if airlines offered passengers low-cost or free Wi-Fi — using Gogo's 2Ku internet access, for example — travelers would be able to access Netflix from their personal devices in-flight. Those without Netflix memberships would be given the opportunity to sign up for a 30-day free trial, which could potentially attract more long-run subscribers. Read more...

An ancient lost city in Iraq is found using old spy-footage and drones

Normally when something gets lost the place to look is down the back of the sofa — but when the item in question is a whole city, the situation calls for a little out-of-the-box thinking.

The pass is highly significant in terms of ancient history, as Alexander the Great passed that way in 331 BC in hot pursuit of the Persian king Darius III after defeating him at the battle of Gaugamela. Yeah, that old yarn. Read more...

Twitter is making some legitimately great video—and it's impossible to find

Twitter TV—it's here, sort of.

The world's most stressful social network has signed a flurry of deals for live video in recent months, bringing original content from major media companies and professional sports leagues.

Twitter's recent foray into live video has resulted in plenty of content and impressive partners, but same old Twitter—questionable execution and general confusion.

Poor MLB fan loses nachos in the most devastating way possible, but there's a happy ending

Theirs nothing more tragic than a perfectly fine plate of nachos tumbling to the ground at a baseball game.  

Well that's just what happened Monday night as one St. Louis cardinals fan attended his team's game against the Chicago cubs.

Cubs shortstop, Addison Russell, lunged headfirst into the stands while trying to chase down a foul ball, which caused a whole lot of mess on the field.
