Wack 100 Compares T.I. to 6ix9ine

Wack 100 is going off on T.I.

A day after he sparked a debate with his controversial comments about Nipsey Hussle’s “legend” status, Blueface’s manager is taking aim at T.I. for defending the late rapper. Taking to Instagram, Wack posted a decade-old PSA of Tip promoting the Crime Stoppers Atlanta hotline.

In his caption, he compared the ATL rapper to Tekashi 6ix9ine, who snitched on his former Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods members. “BEFORE THERE WAS A 69 there was a TI-#ALEGEND @troubleman31 YOU GOT MY LINE….” he wrote. “IM NOT TO BE PLAYED WITH MIND YA BIDNESS …. WACK GIVES NO FUCKS I AM NOT A RAPPER.”

Wack is seemingly referring to T.I.’s October 2007 arrest on firearms charges when he allegedly tried to purchase guns from a cooperating witness. He later pleaded guilty to federal weapons charges, and served a year in prison. Wack insinuates that Tip cooperated with authorities in order to receive a lighter sentence.

“ONLY LEGENDS GET 12 MONTHS FOR 5000 pills and 25 CHOPPAS ——— NOW BLOG THAT,” added Wack.

On Monday, T.I. defended Nipsey after Wack said he wasn’t deserving of being calling a “legend.” “Record sales and #1 hits ain’t the only barometer for legendary status. IMPACT is what’s important,” Tip wrote on Instagram. “Although his notoriety DID grow exponentially more after his demise… his impact is undeniable.”

Others including Meek Mill and Mustard also took to social media in Nipsey’s defense.

LaMelo Ball Receives No. 1 Ranking In ESPN’s 2020 NBA Mock Draft

There has been a ton hype surrounding LaMelo Ball these past few weeks thanks to his incredible play overseas in the NBL. At one point, the youngest Ball brother was predicted to be a top 3 pick in the 2020 NBA Draft but now, he is being projected as the first overall pick in ESPN 2020 NBA Mock Draft. Ball has been putting up a plethora triple-doubles and continues to give his team a chance to win every single night.

According to Jonathan Givony ESPN, LaMelo’s talent is enough to make him the first pick in the draft although there is one X-Factor that could scare some teams away. Of course, this X-Factor is LaMelo’s father, LaVar. Givony claims he has heard from teams who just aren’t willing to take a chance on LaMelo because what his dad has done in the past with Lonzo.

“However, I believe that if the draft were held today, he probably would not be the No. 1 pick,” Givony said. “Of course, that will heavily depend on the team that ends up winning the May lottery. But both Schmitz and I have just received a significant amount blowback from NBA teams who say that they simply don’t trust Ball enough to hand him the keys to their franchise. They worry about what all the attention around him will do to their team culture, how strong his work ethic is and whether his father, LaVar, could become a distraction.”

Punishing LaMelo for his dad’s actions seems a little harsh but it isn’t all that surprising. There is a ton money at stake when it comes to these decisions and drafting the wrong player could be a longterm detriment to your franchise.

Ohio Bill Insists Doctors Do The Impossible Or Face "Abortion Murder" Charges

Despite the fact that doctors say this procedure is impossible, policymakers are still trying to push this bill forward. In the continuation a ”woman’s right to choose” debate, Ohio politicians are taking things to the extreme. A bill has been introduced into the Ohio state legislature requiring physicians to ”reimplant an ectopic pregnancy” in an attempt to further ban abortion. According to the bill, physicians who do not perform the procedure will face the charge ”abortion murder.” While there has been a slew harsh abortion bills being introduced across the United States by Republican representatives, this particular bill is considered one the most extreme.

Doctors insist that this is not even a ble procedure, and have brought this to the attention Ohio policymakers before. Also, ecotopic pregnancies are life-threatening conditions for women. Still, they are trying to move the bill forward. Gynecologist and Obstetrician Dr. David Hackney said on Twitter, “I don’t believe I’m typing this again but, that’s impossible. We’ll all be going to jail.”

House Bill 413 not only insists physicians do the procedure but also defines a fertilized egg as an “unborn child” and bans abortion altogether. Doctors who perform the procedure and women and children (as young as 13) who get an abortion done can be charged with “abortion murder,” which, can translate to a life sentence in prison. Even more extreme, the bill says that if you commit a new crime, “aggravated abortion murder,” you could receive the death penalty.

Nick Young Delivers Shocking Kobe Bryant & Michael Jordan Take: Watch

When it comes to basketball, there has been a ton debate surrounding who the greatest player all-time is. Many would argue that it’s LeBron James, while the vast majority would say it’s actually Michael Jordan. There are some other players in the GOAT conversation including Bill Russell, Magic Johnson, Wilt Chamberlain, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and even Kobe Bryant. While Bryant is certainly a great player, there are some glaring arguments against him when it comes to GOAT talk. 

Nick Young, Kobe’s former teammate, doesn’t care for the negatives against Kobe as he believes he’s the real GOAT. In a recent episode the “Certified Buckets” podcast, Young made the case for Kobe as the GOAT and he made some compelling, yet confusing arguments.

Basically, Young feels like Kawhi Leonard is the second coming Michael Jordan and that Kobe is better than Kawhi. If you do the proper math, you would easily come to the conclusion that Kobe is the greatest player all-time. Young’s co-hosts were pretty surprised by this assessment but at the end the day, they accepted it since it’s simply a matter opinion.

Do you agree with Young? Who do you think is the greatest player all-time?

Stephen A. Smith Explains Why LeBron Will Never Surpass Michael Jordan

One the biggest debates in basketball is who is the greatest player all-time. As right now, there are two players at the top this debate: Michael Jordan and LeBron James. The popular opinion dictates that Jordan is the GOAT and that James has been chasing him for years. It seems like much this debate is a generational divide. Younger people see LeBron as the GOAT while the older crowd is quick to say MJ. Regardless, it’s a debate that persists to this day and on Wednesday, Stephen A. Smith gave his thoughts on the matter.

In the video below, Smith goes on to say that LeBron will never surpass Michael Jordan and it all has to do with his killer instinct and playf performances during the early part his career. One Smith’s biggest critiques on LeBron’s career is his performance against the Dallas Mavericks in 2011.

On top all these criticisms, Smith believes James lacked the intensity to put teams away when he first started. As Max Kellerman explained later in the video, Smith was using LeBron’s “journey” against him. Smith’s opinion here is nothing new although it’s interesting to see the arguments framed in such a way.

What do you think what Smith had to say? Is he right or is LeBron the real GOAT?

J. Cole Shades NFL’s Moral Compass Over Colin Kaepernick Debacle

Going into the weekend, Colin Kaepernick‘s NFL workout was moving forward with a reportedly high turnout set to attend. Many, even those skeptical about the NFL’s moral conduct, seemed cautiously optimistic. A foundational strand Jay-Z’s masterplan, or at least the illusion it, was coming together. And then the NFL demanded a liability waiver to be signed, prompting an unwilling Colin to relocate the workout at the last minute. After jumping ship from the Falcon’s practice facility to an Atlanta High School, the total number teams in attendance dwindled from twenty-five to eight. What could have been a pivotal step in facilitating Kaep’s return to the Big Leagues became an unfortunate new chapter drama.

Though some, including Jay-Z and Stephen A. Smith, have expressed disappointment in Kaepernick, others have shifted the blame onto the NFL. J. Cole took to Twitter to voice his own annoyance with the sporting giant, and to a lesser degree, himself for taking the “bait.” “Me thinking the NFL was about to do the right thing,” writes Cole, alongside a slew Clown emojis. 

In truth, the situation is a complex one. For Kaep, who likely still nurses a distrust for the league that cast him aside, media access would have ensured a mediator sorts — if only to provide context to the event. Now, with the dust still swirling in the air, all we can do is speculate and debate on the matter. For J. Cole, it’s clear where his loyalties lie. 

Tory Lanez Reveals His Top 5 R&B Artists

Who is the King of R&B?

As he gears up to release his highly-anticipated album Chixtape 5 next week, Tory Lanez weighed in on the hotly-contested King of R&B debate.

While newcomers like Jacquees and YK Osiris have claimed the crown, Tory believes anyone can be king. “I think everybody’s a king in their own right,” he said. “I think there’s this common misconception that somebody shouldn’t say something that’s too big. Are people supposed to limit themselves? Are you supposed to want to be number two?”

The Toronto native went on to reveal his top 5 R&B artists of all time and made a case as to why R. Kelly deserves the crown. “Despite the things that he’s done, I think music and craft-wise, I would give it to R. Kelly,” he said. “He’s just been doing it for so long and he did so many different genres and did them phenomenally on the music side. I don’t agree with the things he did on the other side, but musically you gotta give it to guys like that.”

Tory sampled some of his favorite R&B songs from 2000-2006 for Chixtape 5, which arrives Nov. 15. The 18-track set also includes the T-Pain-assisted single “Jerry Sprunger.”

Find out who made Tory’s top 5 R&B artists of all time below.

“It’s more mature,” Jacquees told Power 106 of the follow-up to his 2018 debut 4275. “It’s not just strictly . I’m kinda digging deeper, it’s relationship, it’s love.”

As further indication that music streaming services have gone fully mainstream, the National Football League (NFL) announced that it is opening official hubs on leading streaming platforms.

Recently, the NFL has been looking for ways to better connect with potentially alienated demographics, especially as the league became a warzone for social issues and debate. That motivated a partnership with Jay-Z and his company Roc Nation, which features not only social activism but also performances by top music artists.

  • Legendary matchups
  • Career highlights of the greatest to play the game
  • Video podcasts
  • Audio/visual albums

Tiny Denies Entertaining Other Men While She & T.I. Were Separated

They may be happily in love now, but T.I. and Tiny’s marriage almost came to a full stop back in 2016. The husband and wife split up and even filed for divorce, and while they were separated, the rumor mill was spinning tales what each artist was doing now that they were nearly single. Although T.I.’s infidelities were put on display for the world to see, Tiny kept her business under wraps.

There may have not been much to tell on Tiny’s end because, according to the singer, she wasn’t seeing anyone. During a recent episode  ExpediTIously, Tiny chatted about her time away from her husband. “I cut my ties,” she said. “It was a separation. There was a time I was not married.” However, she used the time to get her career in line, not to hook up with other men.

“I wasn’t with no man,” she admitted. “I didn’t have no man…No, I didn’t have male company.” Yet, Tiny wasn’t necessarily pining for T.I. “I didn’t miss it, either. I was getting money. I was running my sh*t. I was goddamn kicking it. I was going where I wanted to go. You know what I’m saying? I was having fun times.” Check out the episode below.

Viola Davis Defends Marvel Against Martin Scorsese’s Criticism

Viola Davis is the newest celebrity to pick sides regarding the Marvel Universe versus Martin Scorsese debate. Earlier this month, Scorsese infamously compared superhero movies to theme parks saying “I don’t see them. I tried, you know? But that’s not cinema,” Scorsese said. “Honestly, the closest I can think them, as well made as they are, with actors doing the best they can under the circumstances, is theme parks. It isn’t the cinema human beings trying to convey emotional, psychological experiences to another human being.”

Viola Davis has now put her foot in the ring. According to The Hollywood Reporter, during the Rome Film Festival, Davis was asked about the situation, to which, she responded, “I do like a good Marvel movie. I do like a good DC Comics movie.”

“Albert Einstein said that imagination is more valuable than knowledge. If I did not have my imagination, I would still be poor Viola living in Central Falls, Rhode Island, who is not considered attractive or whatever,” she expanded. “My imagination defined me. I could escape into a world that’s infinite, a world that I could create on my own, a world where I could redefine myself. That’s where art lives.”

She continued, “Art lives in that world imagination. It’s a playground there. It’s God’s playground. It’s not up to anyone to say what deserves to be there and what doesn’t deserve to be there. It’s anything that you want to be in that place can live there. And that is why we have some the greatest painters, some the greatest actors, some the greatest writers, and that’s why we live. So I do believe that there’s a place for all it.”

She also defended Scorsese’s freedom speech. “I think he was voicing his opinion. I think it’s valid,” she said. “Everyone had a place, an opinion. But I like a good Marvel movie,” she added.

Davis is set to reprise her role in the upcoming Suicide Squad sequel.

Charles Barkley Has No Doubt That Kawhi Leonard Is Better Than LeBron James

Prior to the start the NBA season, the league released the results their annual General Managers survey, revealing that 62% GMs polled voted Kawhi Leonard as the best small forward in the game. That marked the first time since 2005 that LeBron James didn’t get the nod.

Following last night’s clash between the two MVPs, which the Clippers won 112-102, NBA Hall Famer Charles Barkley weighed in on the Kawhi vs LeBron debate and left no doubt about where he stands.

Says Barkley, “I don’t hesitate. At this point, Kawhi’s a better player than LeBron. He does everything better. He’s a better defender. A better scorer. He’s better at imposing his will on the game.”

Kawhi led all scorers in Tuesday night’s win with 30 points on 10–19 shooting to go along with six rebounds, five assists and two steals in 32 minutes action. Meanwhile, LeBron flirted with a triple-double posting 18 points on 7–19 shooting, nine rebounds and eight assists. 

They will be compared to one another all season long, as will their teams, but LeBron isn’t buying into the rivalry narrative just yet.

“The NBA’s back and everyone’s trying to have the narrative it’s a rivalry game and it’s a huge test,” James said, per ESPN, “but I think both teams are not where they want to be. We have a lot room to improve.”

Up next for the Clippers is a road game against the Golden State Warriors on Thursday night, while the Lakers play host to the Utah Jazz on Friday. The two teams will face each other again on Christmas Day at 8pm ET.

Stephen A. Smith Reveals His Top 5 Teams In The NBA, Twitter Reacts

Another season NBA basketball is upon us which means another year debate is about to follow. For months, we will be subjected to numerous arguments about which teams are truly the best in the league and which players have proven their worth despite wavering sample sizes. The season hasn’t even started yet and some pundits are declaring which teams are the best in the entire league. Stephen A. Smith is one those analysts and today, he put out his signature A-List on ESPN’s First Take.

Smith has been proven wrong before but based on his selections, he has made some solid points, although things can change very quickly. At number five, Smith had the Houston Rockets who were followed by the Denver Nuggets at four. From there, the Philadelphia 76ers snagged third, the Los Angeles Clippers were second and surprisingly, the Lakers first.

The Lakers are an unproven team as right now considering they missed the playfs last season. With Anthony Davis on the roster, they will certainly be a much better team but they still have a lot to prove before they can be crowned the best in the league.

NBA fans were quick to comment on Smith’s list and promptly criticized his predictions. Let us know in the comments who you think are the best teams in the NBA.

Cory Booker Read Rosario Dawson A 5-Hour World War II Novel Over The Phone

Rosario Dawson is dating Cory Booker who is currently running to become the next President the United States America. Such a job means lots traveling, debates, events and meetings which means precious downtime with your significant other may not come as easy.

The Sin City actress recently chatted with The Washington Post and explained how Cory just finished reading David Benif’s World War II novel “City Thieves” to her over the phone. The book takes about five hours to read out loud and according to a previous interview with Cory from 2016, he’s read the book to one his ex-girlfriends.

“Before I knew it, we were reading the book out loud to each other, over the phone, and I was drawn in,” he said. “Soon we were reading chapters on our own, and she was telling me to slow down and not get too far ahead.” 

We think it’s safe to say his read to Rosario means a lot more. “I feel like I’m dating Captain America, I mean he’s just such an amazing, brilliant, kind, empathetic, beautiful, loving human being,” Rosario said Cory
