TM88 landed beats on both Juice's From O's to Oscars as well as Wiz' Cabin Fever 3, and all three of them linked up for "Bake Sale," the lead single off Khalifa, the album Wiz dropped last month.

Amber Rose is proud of her body, and she won't let conservative notions of how a female should present herself stop her from showing it off.
