After an extended reflection on the stand-up comedy lifestyle, Bill Maher opened up about his distaste for Bill Cosby, which began when he first witnessed The Cosby Show. 

“I never thought Bill Cosby was funny,” reveals Bill Maher. “Even when I was a kid I saw him on TV, I was like no. This shit is corny. I feel very ahead my time. I never liked him…Somebody told me he was a creep back in 1983. It was somebody I liked, a girl he was horrible to. I never liked him after that, as a person.” Joe explains that he heard Cosby was drugging girls back in 1994. “It was one those things you hear as a rumor like What does he do?! Bill Cosby!?”  “You have to wonder why a guy who could get laid, even as a married man,” continues Bill. “That’s obviously a sick kink he had.”

“I also know a promotor who told incredible stories about things Bill Cosby did that were not ual, but informed me his kink is part a larger sickness about control,” says Maher. “Making people do weird things because he can.” Joe reveals that he heard Bill Cosby made people “watch him eat curry. The whole staff come into his dressing room and watch him eat.” Maher continues along those lines: “I heard he’d order food and he would say ‘scoop out the doughy part the hamburger bun after you wash your hands and put it back on the hamburger. Or once he asked them to send him the soap he hadn’t finished using in the dressing room. Crazy crazy shit that speaks to a pathology that’s larger than him ually.”

Rogan raises him one further: “I worked at a casino, and he made the security guard tuck him into bed and shut the lights f. He had a whole routine.” Check out the full episode in which a variety topics are covered – political correctness, monogamy, , and much more.

Yo Gotti recently sat down with Complex and discussed the case, sharing that he was prompted to get involved because he grew up visiting friends and family members in prison. “We’re just trying to be a voice and speak up for people who gettin’ treated like they ain’t humans,” Yo Gotti said. “They not gettin’ the proper food, health care. People dying in prison. Prison supposed to be rehabilitation, right? You go to prison, hopefully, you get your stuff right. You never go back. You don’t go to prison and die in the cell. That ain’t how it’s supposed to go. We’re in the process setting up rallies out there in Mississippi so their voice can be heard louder and things like that that we have in the process as well.”

Aside from the chat about Mississippi prisons, Gotti also talked about losing a half a million dollars while gambling. “I really was just slipping on that, man,” the rapper said. He explained that it was a two-day tournament for the Shawn Carter Foundation’s Charity Gala and he had the winning hand but just made a bad move at the last minute.

It took me like an hour or two after it had happened to realize what I had done.” Watch more from Yo Gotti and Complex below.

White Battle Rapper William Wolf Blurts N-Word & Gets Decked In The Face

Some lines are not meant to be crossed… even in battle rap. With the current state affairs in the United States and around the world, it’s clear that racism is still a major issue in 2020. Most things, especially personal matters, get tossed to the side when preparing to battle against another high-energy spitter at war. One thing that should never be uttered by a white battle rapper though is the n-word. The word carries so much weight and it’s just plainly inappropriate to use in any circumstances. During a recent battle, William Wolf learned his lesson when he was decked in the face after daring to allow the word to leave his lips.

After earning some oohs and aahs from the audience, battle rapper William Wolf was setting up for his next punchline when he referenced the fact that he was instructed not to use the n-word for obvious reasons. “I ain’t like these other battle rappers, they talk too much/Saying I can’t say the n-word in this battle, my n***a,” raps Wolf before he swiftly gets punched in the face, ending his bar early. Wolf has since responded to the backlash, insisting that the lyric was misinterpreted but, like… bruh… really?

“Shit got broken up. To me, it’s not that deep,” he says. In all honesty, nobody really cares about whether it’s deep or not to him. The fact the matter is that he shouldn’t have said the word and, since he did, he’s getting dragged to hell and back. Because how “corny” things played out, Wolf says he will be taking a step away from battle rap for a minute.
