Literally every episode the Joe Rogan Experience is eye-opening in some aspect. The entertainer gets tons informative guests on his show to discuss some the coolest topics around. Rogan is a solid interviewer and an even better conversationalist, bringing the best out his peers and presenting the facts to us in three-hour-long stretches. Whether you’re on the way to work, in bed before you start to doze f, or giving your full attention to the Experience, Joe Rogan tends to always come through. This week, he sat down with comedian Donnell Rawlings and rapper RZA, which we’ve already written about several times, but one point from the chat deserves its own shine.
“That guy’s gotta be broke… is there a way I can buy that f him?” asks Joe Rogan. He even already has the perfect spot in his room to place it. “But I would release that online,” he added. “Or release it with you RZA]. But that, sitting there, makes no sense to me. That box looks dope. When you get out Martin, holla at your boy.”
RZA has spoken to Shkreli about the album, suggesting that he should give the project away to the public for free. As now, we still have never heard Once Upon a Time In Shaolin. Listen below at the 1:29:00 mark.
T.I. has dipped from the radar ever since he revealed that he attends his daughter’s gynecology visits to ensure his 18-year-old is still a virgin. “Deyjah’s 18, just graduated high school now and she’s attending her first year college, figuring it out for herself,” he said. “And yes, not only have we had the conversation, we have yearly trips to the gynecologist to check her hymen.”

The reveal pulled in a lot remarks by people who found the news shocking, eventually leading the podcasters to pull the interview. The “Big Things Poppin'” rapper has yet to respond to his past remarks and his daughter has unfollowed him on Instagram.
T.I.’s wife Tiny has also remained mute on the situation until recently when she responded to a comment on her Instagram. Tiny shared an image her and T.I. on the move, leading one her followers to comment: “Is Deyjah okay? We care.”
Tiny simply responded with our emojis: “🙄🙄🙄🙄”

Lil Yachty recently weighed in on the matter, sharing his opinion on T.I.’s family rituals. “I just feel like when it come to someone’s children on such a personal matter, no one can honestly tell somebody how to raise their children, or how to take care them or how to look after them,” he said. “That’s that man’s child.”
Spotify and Proctor & Gamble are partnering in the launch of a new podcast series called Harmonize, which will discuss racism in America and how music has had a positive impact on it.
The series includes four episodes, all of which are now available exclusively on Spotify. Hosted by communications consultant and writer Jamilah Lemieux, the episodes feature singer and actor John Legend along with rapper and music executive Pusha T as well as music expert Cory Townes.
While the podcast in the future will address all kinds of biases, such as gender, LGBTQ and identity bias, the first episodes are focused on bias against African Americans. In these episodes, artists and cultural commentators share stories of how racism has affected both their personal and professional lives.
Legend is very supportive of the project.
He says, “It is so important to have an open, honest dialogue around difficult topics like race, gender and bias.” Because of this, he adds, “I have huge respect for companies like Spotify and P&G that are creating spaces for artists like myself to have these conversations, which are long overdue.”
Damon Jones, who is the vice president of global communications & advocacy at Proctor & Gamble, also commented on the series. He said, “Together with Spotify, we’re deepening this conversation, illustrating how race intersects music and culture and bringing together a variety of perspectives and experiences we believe will inspire people to take action to address these all too common instances of individual and institutional bias.”
Finally, Danielle Lee, who is global vice president of partner solutions at Spotify, said, “We are proud to amplify the conversation that P&G has so thoughtfully sparked with the launch of Harmonize. Consumers expect brands to take a stand on issues they care about and contribute to society in a meaningful way. Our hope is that Harmonize will expand the conversation around bias in America in an effort to build empathy.”
Social media was recently turned upside down after T.I. revealed on Nadia Moham and Nazanin Mandi’s Ladies Like Us podcast that he visits the gynecologist with his 18-year-old daughter Deyjah Harris to make sure that she’s a virgin by having the physician check for her hymen. Since the podcast aired, T.I. has been heavily criticized by the public for what they call “policing” a woman’s vagina, and the men over on The Joe Budden Podcast discussed the controversy on a recent episode. Joe and his crew didn’t want to get into talking about a teenage girl’s body parts, but they did want to share their takes on the situation.
“How you maneuver as a famous parent to your age child], like they’re 18 and they have to really go out and deal with the world, school classmates, their peers, their friends, it’s important,” Joe said. “I even think twice about the things I even write under my kid’s Instagram because I don’t know what you got going on, how you are with your friends, I don’t know how they’re receiving you. I don’t want to embarrass you.”
It’s clear the Joe wanted to be careful about speaking specifically about T.I.’s relationship with Deyjah, but it seems that the hosts take more issue with the publicity it all more than the actual act T.I.’s request. Watch the clip below.
50 Cent must have violated Instagram’s policies because his account is currently shut down. The Power mogul, who’s made a third career out of Instagram trolling, has instead ramped up his Twitter activity.
But don’t expect anything he’s posting to make sense. For the past several hours, he’s been sharing random memes dissing Naturi Naughton, delivering strange life advice, promoting Power, expressing his love for celebrity chef Rachael Ray and wondering what this “50-cent army” is.
The Spotify Magic Leap app has launched, bringing music streaming to the augmented reality platform. The app displays a location-aware 3D Spotify interface.
The app requires a Spotify Premium subscription to use. The Magic Leap One mixed reality headset shipped to founders last year — starting at $2,295.
The headset is primarily aimed at artists and app developers and looks like something out of a sci-fi movie. The Magic Leap one features built-in speakers situated near the ears. There is also a jack for headphones for private listening.
Spotify is the first major music streaming service to launch an app for the Magic Leap headset.
The Spotify app for Magic Leap takes advantage of the recently launched Background Music Service. Users can on Spotify while using other Magic Leap One apps on their device.
The app is spatially aware, allowing users to pin recently played artists, albums, or tracks to locations in their home. The content builds over time, allowing users to collect and curate their playlists on a per-room basis. It gives users the ability to create soundscapes for each room in their house.
Magic Leap hopes the launch of this app is just the first step in expanding spatial computing. Soon the technology could extend to podcasts, audio books, and other story-telling mediums.
The mixed reality start-up previously raised $2.6 billion in funding back in April. The company is seeking more funding as it continues to flesh out its mixed reality headset. Magic Leap has been quiet about its platform this year, but the launch of the Spotify app is a big step forward.
Festival attendees at the Siggraph Computer Animation Festival got to experience the story of Frankenstein through the eyes of a young Mary Shelley. They also announced a partnership with the Royal Shakespeare Company to build new theatrical experiences using spatial computing technology.
Sitting down with RZA and Joe Rogan on the latter’s podcast, comedian Donnell Rawlings spoke his mind openly and freely during the new episode the Experience. Touching on several strong points, there was a moment when the crew discussed the state hip-hop. You know, with RZA being in the room it just made sense. When the idea hip-hop being “dead” was introduced as a topic, RZA noted that it’s nowhere near its final stages and, since it’s a culture, it never will be. Donnell Rawlings joked that one man, in particular, attempted to end the culture though.
“It’s dead?” questioned Rawlings. “I was like, ‘who killed it?’ Tekashi 6ix9ine] tried to kill it but go head…”
Do you agree with him on the fact that 6ix9ine put hip-hop in danger? Check out the 10:45 minute mark below.
Dwight Howard and JaVale McGee are now teammates on the Los Angeles Lakers and if there is anything they have in common, it’s that Shaq has done his fair share clowning towards them. For years, Shaq was embroiled in a beef with Howard that has seemingly subsided. Meanwhile, McGee was constantly clowned by the NBA legend on his TNT segment, “Shaqtin’ A Fool.” Needless to say, these two have had their fair share issues with Shaq.
Howard recently appeared on teammate Danny Green’s podcast “The Green Room,” where he opened up about his feud with Shaq. At one point, Howard admits he’s spoken to McGee about Shaq and how at one point, they wanted to fight him.
“We did. I asked him. I was like, ‘Hey, did you want to fight Shaq?’ He was like, ‘Man I did, man!’ I was like, ‘Man I did too,’ but I was like, ‘There’s two things we’ve got to worry about. He’s a cop, so if we hurt him we’re going to jail. And two, if Shaq gets a hold us, it’s over with. You’ve got to hit him and move, because if not? If Shaq gets you? It’s over with.’
“We talked about that. We laughed about a good 30 minutes, just talking about Shaq and all the things he said about us. But you know what it kind did? It kind kept us grounded, but it also made us realize, all right — every night we step in the gym, on the court, whatever we’re doing, let’s go 110 percent because we don’t want somebody like this, or anybody ever questioning who we are as basketball players and men.”
Now, it seems like both players have put this Shaq feud to the side so we’re happy about that. McGee and Howard have been making an impact with the Lakers this season and have seemingly moved passed the narratives that used to surround them.
Israel Adesanya has been one the most impressive UFC fighters in the world as he continues his undefeated streak in the promotion. It doesn’t seem like anybody can beat Adesanya right now and the “last stylebender” is well aware what he’s able to pull f on a fight-to-fight basis. His latest victory was against the likes Robert Whittaker and now, he’s looking for more.
Recently, Adesanya was on the Joe Rogan Podcast where they talked about his fight against Whittaker and who he is looking to battle next. As it turns out, Adesanya wants a shot against Yoel Romero because he is a physical freak who can do some special moves in the Octagon. For Adesanya, it’s about building his legacy and Romero would let him do that. Unfortunately, Dana White seems to be holding the fight back.
“Dana said ‘oh he needs to get a win first’ the thing is they don’t know how to sell it to the people,” Adesanya said. “I’m like ‘f*** it let’s do it anyway.'”
Los Angeles, CA – Killa Twan is apparently still bothered by Wack 100’s inflammatory comments about the late Nipsey Hussle. Shortly after the longtime music manager appeared to justify Eric Holder’s actions — not once but twice — Twan has issued an ominous warning Twitter.
“On NicKersons I’ll fuck over @bluefacebleedem in a head up squabble,” he wrote. “LiL nigga betta wach his muhhfuckin mouf…him & wack!!”
On NicKersons I’ll fuck over @bluefacebleedem in a head up squabble. LiL nigga betta watch his muhhfuckin mouf… him & wack!!
In a leaked audio clip that started making the rounds last month, Wack said Holder, Nip’s alleged killer, had no choice but handle his business.
A couple of days later, he apologized at the suggestion of Nip’s former manager Eugene “Big U” Henley but then doubled down on his commentary during an interview with the No Jumper podcast.
“In this situation, you have a rapper and you have a dude who is a straight, authentic gang member,” he said. “His whole life are these blocks. In the culture of gangbanging, when you call a muthafucka a bitch, a snitch, a rapist, a pedophile — when you call somebody these things in this jungle, it’s no different than you being a football player and going on the field without your helmet on. You’re going to get hit.”
Nip, of course, was shot and killed on March 31 after he allegedly called Holder a “snitch.”
Twan is signed to Nipsey’s All Money In imprint, so it makes sense he has Nip’s back in both life and death.
Mike Tyson and Evander Holyfield are two the most infamous heavyweight boxers all-time and back in 1997, they had an infamous fight where Tyson bit a chunk Holyfield’s ear f. It was a pretty iconic moment in boxing history that continues to be talked about to this day. Considering Holyfield was badly injured on the play, it’s surprising to know that the two are actually quite friendly and still talk from time to time. This past week, Holyfield appeared on “Hotboxin’ With Mike Tyson,” and the two ended up discussing their infamous fight.
In the clip below TMZ, Holyfield explains to Tyson why he ended up forgiving him and how he actually did something similar although no one got to see it.
“People keep asking, ‘How are you gonna forgive somebody?'” Holyfield said. “I say, everything that ever happened, at some point in time, I did it. Mike bit me, I say I bit somebody too … it just wasn’t on TV. I bit a guy in his shoulder. He dropped me, and I didn’t know when you had a concussion, you’ll bite too.”
The two ended up laughing f the whole incident and now, Tyson and Holyfield are considering selling edible gummies in the shape the former’s ear. It’s cool to see these two bury the hatchet.
TooFab has done its usual job asking celebrities they run in to to comment on trending topics, so now we have a response from Lil Yachty on the hymen situation. Yachty takes a relativist stance on the issue, claiming T.I. cannot be judged for his parental decisions. “I just feel like when it come to someone’s children on such a personal matter, no one can honestly tell somebody how to raise their children, or how to take care them or how to look after them,” he said. “That’s that man’s child.”
The pastor who gave Kanye West a platform for the rapper’s Sunday Service is once again criticizing the Jesus Is King artist. Last month, Kanye and his crew descended on the popular Atlanta megachurch New Birth Missionary Baptist. Pastor Jamal Bryant and his staff welcomed Kanye with open arms as the rapper delivered his Sunday Service performance for the attendees, including T.I., Tiny, 2 Chainz, and 2 Chainz’s wife, Kesha Ward. T.I. later shared on his ExpediTIously podcast that he felt swindled because the church asked for two ferings that morning and he felt they did so because there were millionaires sitting in the front row.

Following Kanye’s Sunday Service, which was widely praised on social media, the rapper donated a large sum money to the church. Bryant later addressed his congregation and told them that the church would be redirecting the donation to Morris Brown College where Kanye’s late mother, Donda West, was once a pressor. Bryant noted that both he and his team believed Ye’s support President Trump was problematic, so they didn’t want to accept the money.
The pastor has returned to the pulpit once again to target the rapper, a moment that was captured on video. “Kanye west project is incredible but his politics are indigestible,” Bryant wrote in a caption. “The message after the music is just as important. Jesus is king and Trump is a jester. Our theology doesn’t match this administrations politics…the revolution won’t be televised.” Check out the video clip below.
T.I. raised a few eyebrows after he admitted he accompanies his 18-year-old Dayja Harris to the gynecologist to “check her hymen” in an effort to ensure she was still a virgin. His admission resulted in plenty of social media backlash — and jokes. Lots of jokes.
On Sunday (November 10), Snoop Dogg shared a meme clowning Tip’s strange confession.
In one image, Taylor Armstrong from the The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is screaming “I’mma virgin” while the other features Tip’s head at a dinner table with the caption, “Lemme see.”
Instagram troll king 50 Cent evidently found Snoop’s meme hilarious and commented, “Yeah man, the fuck was T.I. talking about LOL.”
Tip made the comments during a recent appearance on the Ladies Like Us podcast. Following the public outcry, hosts Nazanin Mandi and Nadia Moham issued an apology Instagram and removed the episode from the internet completely.
T.I. is seemingly still maintaining his absence from the media after he was slammed for comments he made on Nadia Moham and Nazanin Mandi’s Ladies Like Us podcast. The Grand Hustle founder admitted to attending his daughter’s gynecologist visits to ensure his 18-year-old is still a virgin. Deyjah Harris has yet to respond to the revelation but she’s made one subtle move since she unfollowed her father on Instagram.

As pointed out by Bossip, Deyjah also unfollowed her step-mother Tiny. It’s unclear when the unfollowing happened but we think it’s safe to assume it has to do with recent events. Deyjah’s opinion on the matter was also evident when she liked several tweets slamming her father for his weird ways.
Once controversy from T.I.’s interview erupted, Nadia and Nazanin felt it was only right to delete the episode. “We were completely caught f guard/shocked and looking back, we should have reacted much differently in the moment,” they wrote in a statement. “The comments that were made and the reaction that followed are not in any way a reflection our personal views on the topic. We support and love Women and feel that their bodies are theirs to do as they wish.”
