Is Big Sean The Worst Rapper? Twitter Debates, Seriously

The 63rd Annual Grammy Awards

Source: CBS Photo Archive / Getty

Twitter is at again. The latest faux outrageous debate involves Big Sean and whether or not he is actually a good rapper, no pun intended.

While Hip-Hop tastes are subjective, let the record show that Big Sean is indeed a “good” rapper. In fact, considering he has six proper albums, and numerous mixtapes to his name, he is way better than the average rapper. We’re not even going to reference record sales, or the fact that his peers respect his talents or that the Detroit native has a way with words. Did these folks not listen to “Blessed” or “Mercy” or the Dark Sky Paradise album? Nevertheless, that isn’t stopping folk on social media from adamantly slandering the man.

Maybe it’s because it’s a Sunday. Maybe it’s because people are bored. Maybe it’s because he’s still romantically involved with Jhene Aiko. Whatever the reason, some of y’all are cold and are actually entertaining that he is the “worst” rapper.

It seems to have popped off after many started RT’ing and replying to this rogue tweet. “who’s the worst rapper you’ve heard n why is it big sean,” asked Twitter user @blondedwavyx on May 1. 

Worst rapper, though? Considering the litany of weak-barred MC’s polluting airwaves and playlists. Even Lil B recognized the audacity.

Big Sean’s latest album, Detroit 2, was released back in September 2020 to generally positive reviews. We compiled some of the most stirring anti-Big Sean tweets, as well as some of the most supportive, for archival purposes. Remember that Twitter says a lot of things, but they’re not always accurate.

Twitter Gives Mostly Positive Props To DJ Khaled’s ‘Khaled Khaled’ Album

Celebrities Attend The 69th NBA All-Star Game - Inside

Source: Kevin Mazur / Getty

DJ Khaled is now 12 albums deep with the release of his latest set, Khaled Khaled, another project packed with stars that some expected to appear and others who came as a surprise. Fans on Twitter are taking in the album after its Friday (April 30) release, and the reactions are still pouring in.

Khaled Khaled, which is the actual real name of the boisterous personality and executive, features an epic list of famed performers that include Cardi B, Lil Wayne, Meek Mill, Justin Timberlake, Migos, and more.

The album opens with the aforementioned Weezy F. Baby with vocals from Jeremih, and it’s good to see his name in the credits considering his health woes. The track, “THANKFUL,” is produced by Khaled and Kane Beatz and sets the tone of the album. The next track, “EVERY CHANCE I GET” pairs Lil Baby with Lil Durk over production from Khaled and Tay Keith, teasing what should be a potent mixtape collaboration between the pair that is forthcoming.

One of the apparent early faves is “BIG PAPER” with Cardi B all by her lonesome and produced by Khaled and Cool & Dre, and she’s definitely talking heavy on this one.

DJ Khaled flexes his production muscles on his own with “WE GOING CRAZY” featuring H.E.R. and all three of the Migos in a refreshing audio reunion of sorts. But the record folks were mostly wondering about was “SORRY NOT SORRY” with Jay-Z and Nas alongside James Fauntleroy and what most speculate to be Beyonce under the guise of “Harmonies Of The Hive.”

The album features two previously heard tracks featuring Drake in “POPSTAR” and “GREECE” and Megan Thee Stallion joins forces with Lil Baby and DaBaby on the single-ready “I DID IT.”

Justin Bieber, Bryson Tiller, 21 Savage, Buju Banton, and more round out the rest of the album. The reactions to the project in full have been largely positive with the requisite criticism here and there. We’ve got the reactions listed out below.

T-Pain Discovered Instagram’s Direct Message Hidden Folder In Hilarious Fashion

Premiere Of Columbia Pictures' "Bad Boys For Life" - Arrivals

Source: Jemal Countess / Getty

T-Pain, the Call Of Duty master that he is, might not be the savviest person in the world when it comes to social media tools. The “Rappa Ternt Sanga” just discovered a hidden folder for direct messages on Instagram and shared his findings in a hilarious fashion.

By way of a TikTok video, Tallahasse Pain shows off the long list of celebrity direct message requests from folks in the same business as he is.

“I was today years old when I found out about the request folder on Instagram that’s full of celebs trying to reach me,” T-Pain’s caption read with a helium-tinged voiceover effect and the artist’s making an amused face.

Folks such as Fergie, YBN Nahmir, Viola Davis, Diplo, Keri Hilson, and even entities like Nickolodeon all attempted to reach T-Pain unbeknownst to him.

As T-Pain added in the captions, he assumed that any time someone sent him a DM that it would go to the main folder. However, if you’re not following people or they’re not following you, the messages will sometimes get grabbed by the request folder.

“I apologize to everybody on this list and the hundreds of others I couldn’t fit in this video,” T-Pain shared in the caption.

One can only imagine the massive amount of bags and potential collaborations that T-Pain missed out on over the past few years but hopefully, this gets the ball rolling creatively so he can mend some of those mistakenly broken bridges.  Also, T-Pain, hire a social media manager pronto!

The JBP Boyz Are Byke To Business: Rory & Mal Return To ‘The Joe Budden Podcast’

Joe Budden Podcast Live - New York, NY

Source: Johnny Nunez / Getty

The Joe Budden Podcast went through a lineup change recently when longtime co-hosts Jamil “Mal” Clay and Rory Farrell left for reasons only known to them. On Wednesday (4/28), the JBP Boyz joined host Joe Budden after a few weeks and it appears that loyal fans of the pod are excited about the news.

While Rory and Mal’s presence was definitely missed, Joe Budden’s friends, Ice, and Ish, filled in capably while learning the job of podcasting on the fly. Both men, just like Rory and Mal, have career and business interests not related to the podcast world, but they brought a certain amount of real talk and tough love that fans of the show have rarely witnessed over the past five years.

Fan speculation as to why Rory and Mal vacated their microphone duties has ranged from unspoken beef to money issues and a host of other maladies. While we haven’t listened to the latest podcast episode to know exactly what Rory and Mal’s takes are, it is known that Budden was in contact with Rory over the break and it was apparent Budden missed his friends more than he missed them being co-hosts.

The return to the normal format might be a bit of a shakeup again for some considering the chemistry Ice and Ish provided, along with vocalist Emanny and other random guests. The podcast was just finding a good rhythm with the updated lineup, but the fans were committed to a return of the original crew during the duration.

At any rate, it’s good to see the gang back together. Hopefully, and perhaps with a larger space, Ish and Ice can make it back on later episodes.

‘Black Ink Crew’ Recap: Ceaser & Ted Build Their Case Against Walt, Ban Him From All The Shops

Ceaser & Walter Black Ink Crew

Source: Bernard Smalls / @PhotosByBeanz83

Last week’s Black Ink Crew: New York premiere, we learned that Walt allegedly “broke into” the 125th shop and stole jewelry, merchandise, and $5K. Ceaser, Ted, and Puma break the news to the crew and make a tough decision about their brother.

The episode picks right up where last week’s ended with Walt explaining to Ted exactly what happened that night in the shop when the alleged break-in happened. The season 9 premiere ended with Walt admitting that he took the money out of the register, leaving us with a cliffhanger.

Walt tells Ted he took the money because he needed it to handle some personal situations, and when he was able to recoup it, he planned on paying the bread back before anyone noticed. As far as the break-in is concerned, Walt says it was an isolated incident that happened a week later after he took the money.

Unfortunately, Ceaser and Ted’s minds are already made up, and they think he definitely was behind the robbery. Ceaser has heard enough and tells Walt to take a hike. He feels he has been betrayed and isn’t trying to hear any excuses from Walt due to the evidence pointing to suggesting that Walt did.

The following day Ceaser links up with Ted, Puma, and Ceaser’s cousin Feezy to survey the crime scene. Ceaser breaks it all down, alleging Walter jimmied the lock to gain entry to the shop and hit a secret stash that only an employee would know about before hitting the register and taking the jewelry and merchandise. While Ted, Ceaser, and Feezy are all but certain it was Walt, Puma isn’t sure yet and asked why Walt would have to jimmy the lock if he has the key to the shop?

Now, it’s officially time to break the bad news to the crew. Ceaser shares all of the evidence against Walt with his other employees, and they are shocked, but some more revelations are revealed. Black Ink’s newest couple, Krystal and Rokmatic, reveal they saw Walter engaging in some really funny business with the money and even shorting tattoo jobs and pocketing the cash.

The allegations dumbfound Ceaser, and it only helps him make the decision easier to ban Walt from all of the tattoo shops from now on, labeling him persona non grata. Puma is still not there and feels he needs to have a conversation with Walt due to Walt’s history with alcoholism and feels he could be going through something that would force him to make such a rash decision.

Following the meeting, Puma links up with Walter where it all began, the old flagship shop on 113th. The two friends have a conversation about the whole theft matter, and Walter sheds more light on the situation. He revealed the only reason he took the money was that he was behind on his child support and was looking at jail time. Puma, who, for the most part, tried to be very understanding, didn’t think that was a great excuse to steal from the person who helped him.

Before the two walked away, Puma wished Walt the best of luck and tells him it would be best if he stayed away from the crew. Walt believes this is a situation that time will eventually heal, and all indications point to that happening based on Ceaser’s track record when it comes to “beefing” with his friends.

Other notable moments from Monday night’s episode include:

Puma decides to seek therapy because he feels overwhelmed by the COVID-19 pandemic and shootings of unarmed Black men by the police. Good for you, Black man, get that help.

Young Bae, who is looking marvelous, tells Ted she is not coming back to Black Ink… yet and reveals she has had her own tattoo shop for 12 years.

Oh, and Rok and Krystal are “dating” and claim they love each other. Krystal doesn’t want to go public to express their feelings for each other when they are in the shop. We shall see how long that lasts.

Oh, and last but certainly not least, Tatti revealed that Donna bought Alex’s mom a new ass. What an interesting gift to give your future mother-in-law.

Recently Divorced Dr. Dre Allegedly Caught Creeping With Apryl Jones, Twitter Salutes Her

Dr. Dre Spotted With Apryl Jones, Twitter Salutes Her For Securing The Bag

Source: Leon Bennett / Getty

Well, that was fast. Dr. Dre isn’t letting his recent divorce from his estranged wife Nicole Young, and a brain aneurysm scare stop him from moving on to someone new.

Twitter has been thrown into a tizzy after “Xplosive” (see what we did there?) photos of a masked Dr. Dre and a “mystery woman” leaving BOA Steakhouse in Los Angeles Wednesday (Feb.10) hit the web. It didn’t take long for Twitter detectives to decipher who the mystery woman was, and it’s none other than Omarion’s baby mama and his dirty macking B2K brother Lil Fizz’s ex Apryl Jones.

The Shaderoom is confirming that it is indeed Jones seen with Dre. Now, the two don’t necessarily have to be on a date and could have just been discussing music, but that is highly unlikely. Speaking exclusively with Madame Noire, Jones revealed that she is single and dating but did not disclose exactly who.

Per Madame Noire:

“I am dating. And…I’m not looking for anything,” she says. “I’m a say I’m not looking. I just feel like…I am dating, and I’m open, and I feel like what I am hoping to experience is just a great exchange of energy with somebody that feels different, and I’ll know it when I feel it. But that’s just where I’m at with it. I’m not looking for anything. I don’t have a particular type. I’m just enjoying life and exchanging energy, and enjoying company. And that’s it. And when I need what I need when I need it, I get what I need when I need it! Keep it pushin’ [laughs]. That’s where I’m at.”

Riiiggghhht.

Twitter has been giving Jones her props for scooping the 55-year-old near billionaire, putting her in elite company with Lori Harvey.

We don’t know if she’s quite there yet. Lori Harvey is a legend.

HHW Gaming: ‘Madden 21’ Official Gameplay Trailer Arrives, Gamers Are Not Impressed At All

Gamers Are Not Impressed With 'Madden 21's' New Gameplay Trailer

Source: EA / Madden 21

We already accidentally learned Lamar Jackson was going to be the cover athlete for Madden 21 now, it’s time to see the game in action.

*Update*

Lil Wayne helped reveal Lamar Jackson’s Madden 21 cover.

Ahead of EA Play Live and the game’s cover reveal, the official gameplay trailer for Madden 21 arrived. Both the cover and gameplay trailer was supposed to be shown on June 1, but due to the death of George Floyd, EA correctly decided to delay it.

The trailer shows off some of the new gameplay mechanics coming to Madden 21 most importantly the new all-out control system that includes:

  • Skill Stick ball-carrier system
  • Fresh pass rush moves
  • More open-field realism with tackle improvements
  • User-controlled celebrations.

Combine that with the montage of on the field moves we are used to seeing our favorite NFL players do, and you got yourself the typical Madden trailer.

The trailer arrived alongside EA teasing Madden 21’s cover release, which will be fully unveiled Tuesday (Jun.16) at 10:00 am EST.

While we’re still wondering what it even looks like, Jackson’s Ravens teammates got to peep it and shared their reactions to it in a video shared by The Checkdown, and they all loved what they saw.

As for the fans of the famed NFL video game franchise, they were not that impressed with what they saw in the trailer, basically saying it looks the same.

Honestly, this has become a broken record, every year people complain Madden is dropping the same game every year and they do have a point but when you don’t have any real competition like an NFL 2K to make you step your game up what do you expect?

In the same breath, those same folks complaining pony up the money for the game every year. But we understand, they have no other options. We will update this story when the cover drops, but until then, you can peep the reactions to Madden 21’s gameplay reveal trailer below.

HHW Gaming: Sony’s PS5 Reveal Event Is Upon Us, Gamers Ready To Risk It All For The Console

The PS5 Reveal Event Is Upon, Gamers Are Ready To Risk It All

Source: Sony / PlayStation 5

Sony announced on Monday (Jun.8) that its PS5 reveal event is back on. Now that we’re just under 35 hours away from the epic moment, gamers are freaking out.

We get it, we are hyped as well. We have no idea what Sony is going to show during this PS5 games reveal event, but if the rumors pan out, it’s going to be amazing. Dead Space creator threw more fuel on the fire by announcing the big game he has been working on for 2 years will be shown during the event. We just hope it’s finally a new game in the ridiculously scary but oh so good franchise.

There is also a chance that we will FINALLY get to see what the PS5 console looks like…WE HOPE

Sony has already broken down the impressive specs the PS5 will have. Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney has been raving about the possibilities calling it a “remarkably balanced device.” He also added:

“It has an immense amount of GPU power, but also multi-order bandwidth increase in storage management. That’s going to be absolutely critical. It’s one thing to render everything that can fit in memory.” 

Sony has also introduced us to the new DualSense controller, which makes the DualShock 4 looks like child’s play.

Gamers, most importantly, have been salivating to see the “future of gaming” after being let down a couple of times by Sony.  On Twitter, they are once again hilariously tweeting the ridiculous lengths they are willing to go to for the console in anticipation of the PS5’s high price. Even ready to “sell themselves” as one user put it on Twitter.

We totally understand. Until tomorrow’s event, which goes down June 11 at 1:00pm Pacific time, 4:00pm eastern time indulge yourself in the hilarious reactions and predictions below. Be sure to follow us on Twitter as we will be live-tweeting the event as well.
