Dwyane Wade ‘Appreciated’ Mike Tyson Checking Boosie Over His Transphobic Comments About Daughter Zaya Wade

dw

Earlier this year, Boosie caught hell for transphobic comments he made about Dwyane Wade’s daughter Zaya. In October, Boosie sat down with Mike Tyson for the boxer’s podcast, Hotboxin’ With Mike Tyson. Instead of berating Boosie about his comments, he instead tried to get to the bottom of why Boosie said what he did about Zaya Wade.

“I really commented on the Dwyane Wade situation because I got offended because it’s a child,” Boosie told Mike. “That’s really why I got offended.” Tyson gave Boosie the best advice he could and told him that he should have just been quiet.

Dwyane Wade sat down for an interview with Central Ave and said that he had spoken to Mike Tyson and appreciated how he handled the situation.

“He’s one of those people … he’s so smart, he’s so educated and knowledgeable about life and for him to drop that nugget on the world … to me, it was great to hear him say that,” he said. However, Wade wasn’t phased by Boosie’s comments. He said that he “understand(s) that everyone has their own path, their own journey toward accepting things.”

He added that “I’ve never came out and said anything to anybody that feels a certain way about me or someone else in my family, my loved ones — because they don’t know us, they don’t know our heart and they definitely don’t know Zaya.”

Cardi B Celebrates Birthday With Offset Amidst Divorce

Rep From Cardi B's Camp Denies Rumors That Offset is Expecting Another Baby

Despite filing for divorce last month, Cardi B and Offset are turning up in Sin City. The ex-couple took to Las Vegas this weekend to celebrate Cardi B’s 28th birthday. The Bronx rapper expressed the divorce to be amicable. It looks like a friendly nature has rekindled the romance for her birthday weekend.

Offset dedicated a billboard to Bardi prior to the birthday festivities. The billboard read, “Happy Birthday Mommy, Love Kulture.”

The Grammy Award-winning rapper took to Twitter to thanks her ex-hubby. “Thank you sir, I love it.”

Thank you sir 😏😏😏I love it

A post shared by Cardi B (@iamcardib) on

That was only the beginning of Offset’s gift-giving. Following a birthday party and celebration, the “WAP” rapper was surprised with a new Rolls Royce with a custom interior. The car even came equipped with a baby seat for their daughter, Kulture. The two sealed it with a kiss before Cardi hopped in her new whip. The crowd and cameraman busted out the “Take Offset back” chants.

Following the club, the after-party took place atop a Vegas hot, where Cardi and her friends danced for hours. Offset had a front-row seat to the action. He even received a Jamaican lap dance from Bardi as well.

This comes shortly after he expressed how much he missed his ex-wife, after asking for help on his hair color. He took to The ShadeRoom comments to respond to a roommate after they pointed out his stressful look.

“I am I miss MRS. WAP… call her for me but private.”

It looks like that private call went through. After a successful night, she took to IG to thank everyone for the birthday wishes. Happy Birthday to Cardi B.

Kodak Black To Sue Kentucky Prison For Unfair Treatment and Abuse

Here's What Kodak Black and Suge Knight Ate in Prison for Fourth of July

Kodak Black is fed up with the prison system. His on-going battle began earlier this year, where reports documented the Florida rapper’s abuse by the prison’s correctional officers. Most recently, he was denied requests to see his Rabbi. On the other hand, other inmates have been given permission to see clergy for their religious practices. TMZ reports that the accumulation of physical and emotional abuse cases has led Kodak to file a lawsuit against the Federal Bureau of prisons and the director of Big Sandy, where he is currently serving his time.

Documents state that the “Dying To Live” rapper was transferred to the high-security Kentucky prison following a violent confrontation with another at his previous Miami prison. Since his arrival, he claims to have have endured routine abuse for his altercation at the Miami prison. In one instance, he was denied bathroom access for 6 hours, which led to self-defecation and urination. In addition, guards have place Kodak on his knees and in his underwear in order to humiliate him. Guards found this treatment amusing. If that does raise any alarms, no one can tell what is next to come that will.

Now Kodak Black and his team are taking matters into their own hands. According to TMZ, they are looking to have the 23 year-old rapper moved to a lower-security prison and wants damages and legal fees covered for what he had endured. While paying his debt to society, Kodak is currently practicing Hebrew Israelite. The “Zeze” rapper and his team look to secure fair treatment as lawsuit gains momentum.

Bobby Shmurda Denied Parole, Expects 2021 Release From Prison

Bobby Shmurda Doesn't Look Like the "Hot N*gga" We Knew Anymore

The homecoming of Bobby Shmurda looked to be the light at the end of the dark 2020 tunnel for Hip-Hop fans. Many of us spoke too soon. The “Hot Ni**a” rapper was recently denied parole after reports of an anticipated release before the end of this year. Now that anticipation has ceased.

According to TMZ, Shmurda was denied parole following his interview with the prison Board last week. When asked the reason for his denied parole, law enforcement could not provide one. The only conclusion was the extension of his time behind bars until the end of his sentence, which is December 11, 2021. TMZ reports that law enforcement is certain of this due to his history since the beginning of December 2014 prison stint.

Shmurda has accumulated a number of violations including having a shank, drug possession, and fighting. With that history looming, it is tough to convince the board of one’s good behavior. While Hip-Hop fans were looking forward to the release of the Bobby Shmurda, they will have to wait another year. According to his mother, Bobby looks to drop new music and a documentary upon his release.

Fans took to Twitter to express their disappointment.

Drake Shares Picture of Son Adonis On His First Day of School

Drake & son Adonis

The school year has begun for many students around the country, including Drake’s son, Adonis. The 6 God has kept his family life private since the revelation of his fatherhood during his heated Rap beef with Pusha T in 2018. He later responded in his Scorpion track “Emotionless,” with the infamous line, “I wasn’t hidin’ my kid from the world, I was hidin’ the world from my kid.”

The next line is the one that should resonate with listeners.

“From empty souls who just wake up and look to debate
Until you strain’ at your seed, you can never relate’

Back in March, the OVO CEO took to the ‘gram to share a picture of his son for the first time, with a heartfelt caption. Drake talked about missing his family, while also encouraging everyone to manifest the life they want by finding the light within yourself and allowing it to shine as bright as possible. On Fathers Day he posted his son as well.

On Wednesday he showed off Adonis’ drip as he heads to his first day of school. The OVO Sound heir rocks cornrows and comfortable clothes before heading to school. The caption reads, “First Day of School… The World is Yours kids.”
