Drake may be the softest rapper in the game, but there’s something to be said for Wheelchair Jimmy’s heart of gold. Ohio woman Anna Angel was working her shift at the local Burger King when a blaze tore through her trailer home, killing her boyfriend and their five young children. Drake and fellow rapper The…

Extreme Consensual Kidnapping Is A Thing Now

Remember that Michael Douglas movie “The Game,” where Michael Douglas’s loser brother Sean Penn gets him a ticket to “The Game” for his birthday, only “The Game” is some horrible, weird live-action adventure thing where he’s constantly chased and threatened, and ends up in a shack in Mexico? Yeah. I made everyone promise to never…

Some Rappers Think Making It Rain At Strip Clubs Should Be Tax Deductible

I just did my taxes last night and felt justified writing off my legitimate business expenses. Stuff like books I bought or taxis I took to and from work events. I’m very proud of how anal I am about saving every receipt. Apparently, a number of rappers such as The Game, Jim Jones, Bizzy Bone,…

[To] forgive is a word that people need to rethink and actually figure out whether they can do that, or if they’re just saying that they can forgive and they actually can’t and don’t possess the power to do that.

“Top Model” [“Pot Ledom”] All-Stars Go Viral

Last night’s episode of “Top Model” (or should I say “Pot Ledom”?) was “absolutely epic” to quote Amelia. The all-stars had to write, record, and make music videos to “go viral.” Best catch: they had to work the hook “Pot Ledom” (Top Model spelled backwards) into their songs. Another weird-as-s**t Tyra brainchild. Of course, Tyra…

If The Game And 50 Cent Had A Hoedown

I couldn’t resist this funny dance/hip-hop mashup. I don’t know what this kind of dancing is called but I need to learn it NOW. Could it be the precursor to breakdancing? [BuzzFeed]…

Mind Of Man: Pity The Pick-Up Artist

Some of you might have heard of or read Neil Strauss’ The Game, a fawning book about a silver tongued Casanova who goes by the mysterious code-name Mystery. Probably many more of you have seen ridiculously dressed beanpole Mystery tutor his homoerotic boy-cult on Vh1’s reality show “The Pick-Up Artist.” Is it just me or…
