Singer/songwriter Sevyn Streeter had been scheduled to perform the National Anthem at last night’s Philadelphia 76ers/OK City Thunder game, but was told she couldn’t because she was wearing a Black Lives Matter shirt. The songstress told the Associated Press later in the evening that two minutes before she was to go on, she was told she couldn’t due to her shirt. She added that she was not given a dress code. She also recounted the whole ordeal in an Instagram post.  The 76ers released a statement which didn’t address the issue. Meanwhile, 76ers guard Gerald Henderson stated that he wondered what had transpired when 76ers cheerleader Jemila Worley replaced Streeter. San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick gained national attention when he refused to stand for the national anthem during the 2016-2017 football season. It looks like this issue will soon spread to the NBA. After a long hiatus, R&B singer Lloyd returned to the charts with the single and reflective visual “Tru.” Things became dark shortly after the song’s release,  but fans can breath a sign of relief. The crooner announced that he has new music on the way. The title of his forthcoming fifth studio effort will be “Out My Window.” He made the announcement via Twitter. “Out My Window” will be Lloyd’s first album since 2011’s “King Of Hearts.” No official released date has been announced for “Out My Window.” Crooner Bryson Tiller is also working on new music. He announced that his follow up to “TRAPSOUL” is nearly completed. He shared the news via an Instagram post. This should come as no surprise, as he’s released quite a bit of new music recently, including “Let Me Explain”, a track reportedly intended for his next project. Tiller, who has been nominated for three AMAs and five Soul Train awards, has been busy of late. He recently teamed with Guordan and Chris Brown for the single “Keep You In Mind (Remix)”, in addition to joining DJ Khaled and Future for the single “Ima Be Alright” in July. He confirmed that the new album was on the way three weeks ago. This follows the immense success of “TRAPSOUL”, which was certified platinum in April. After deactivating his Instagram account earlier this month, rapper Meek Mill decided to take to Twitter instead to announce that he has new music on the way. His forthcoming project will be titled “DC4Life”. He also shared the artwork for the project. The album is sure to be filled with fiery bars considering his feuds with Drake and The Game. He shared a track list on Snapchat, which included “Blessed”, “Litty”, “Froze”, “Difference” and “Midnight Blues.” “DC4Life” follows his two part EP “4/4”, which was released in January. A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie will deliver new music as well with the release of his as yet untitled EP, which will be released tomorrow. The project follows his “Artist” mixtape, which was released in February, and included a six track offering that catered both hustlers and ladies alike. His breakout single “My Shit” earned him the No. 14 spot on Billboard magazine’s Twitter Emerging Artist  chart in August. During that same month, he also served as opening act for three dates on Drake and Future’s “Summer Sixteen Tour.”
