So, just what the hey-all is up with Snoop Dogg, er, Lion? Or whatever his name is these days?
In fact, speaking of names, over the past 24 hours or so, he’s been referring to himself as “a white guy named Todd.”
On top of that, he’s donned a blonde wig and painted his face or lightened it or something to LOOK like a white guy named Todd.
Oh, oh, we get it. He, er, we mean Todd … is the spokesperson for a new website called “White Guys Connect.” Only problem, so far as we can tell, it doesn’t exist. At least not yet.
Um, er, yeah, like we said, what’s up with dude?
You think he a hold of some of that Nigerian Nightmare ish and it took him all the way out there? Take a look at the Instagrams and video compilation below and let us know if you can figure it out, ’cause we sho’ nuff can’t.
In keeping with hip-hop’s tradition of standing united in difficult times, many of the culture’s MC’s united for a song in honor of deceased teen Michael Brown.
Essence.com reports that the anthem, titled “Don’t Shoot” is the brainchild of rapper The Game, who personally felt the impact of Brown’s death in relation to his own family.
“The issues in Ferguson really hit home for me, and I feel compelled to use my musical platform to address this,” The Game told Rolling Stone. “I am a Black man with kids of my own that I love more than anything, and I cannot fathom a horrific tragedy like Michael Brown’s happening to them. This possibility has shaken me to my core. That is why this song must be made and why it was so easy for so many of my friends to come together and unite against the injustice.”
Ma$e speaks out on the injustice he sees going on in America as people like George Zimmerman and police officer Darren Wilson appear to be getting away with the murders of Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown.
This is Ma$e like we’ve never heard him before… “Politically Incorrect.”
Just when you think Kanye West couldn’t get any more conceited, he tops himself yet again.
This time, the rapper struck with claims of being “the smartest celebrity you’ve ever f—ing dealt with.”
According to TMZ, West’s declaration was made during a deposition hearing in a civil suit filed by Daniel Ramos, a paparazzi photographer the entertainer is accused of assaulting in July 2013.
During that time, West was seen taking Ramos’ camera equipment away from him as well as lunging at him, the report noted. Ramos’ lawyer claims his client sustained injuries that included one to his hip.
Initially, West pleaded not guilty but later changed the plea from no contest to misdemeanor batter. As a result, Ramos’ civil suit was filed.
In addition to naming himself the “smartest celebrity,” TMZ reports that West revealed that his father worked in the same profession as Ramos.
“My father was a paparazzo himself,” the beatmaker told Ramos’ lawyer while adding that he wasn’t raised to “be out here wrestling with random paparazzi in front of LAX.”
Despite his seemingly cool and collected demeanor at the deposition, West did have one of his moments as he accused Ramos of asking him “dumb s—.” From there, he listed all the odd jobs his father did in addition to being a celebrity photographer.
