50 Cent Shares Photo Of Donald Trump As An Inmate 

Posted by Ashley Wiltshire Monday, November 9, 2020 9:19:00 AM

50 Cent continues to troll Donald Trump on the Gram.

It wasn’t long ago that 50 Cent was asking his millions of followers to vote for Trump so he could avoid paying higher taxes, but now it seems he has returned to his regular trolling ways and is instead making fun of the current president for losing the election. On Friday, Fif took to Instagram to share a photoshopped image of Trump looking like a prison inmate with a bald head and orange jumpsuit.

“If the election keeps going in this direction, Trump is gonna need @isaacwrightjr to fight his case. LOL,” he captioned the post.

Kanye West Manages To Scoop 60K Votes In Election Concedes Defeat 

Posted by Ashley Wiltshire Thursday, November 5, 2020 9:41:00 AM

​Turns out that Kanye West has not won the 2020 US Presidential Election but he still managed to scoop 60K votes.

As votes continue to be counted and candidates fight over which states are red or blue, it is easy to forget that Yeezy himself was running in this election. To the surprise of all (including his own wife, apparently), Kanye West announced on Independence Day that he had aspirations to enter the White House and had put his hat in the race. The Grammy Award winner, who has become increasingly more religious over the last few years, ran on a conservative ticket that opposed abortion and vaccinations, supported the legalization of marijuana, and advocated for prayer to be restored in schools.

50 Cent Trolls Lil Wayne For Supporting Trump Using Eminem Meme 

Posted by Ashley Wiltshire Wednesday, November 4, 2020 7:23:00 AM

​50 Cent casually withdrew his support for Donald Trump recently and now he’s watching Eminem and Lil Wayne on both sides of the election.

More hip-hop artists have been endorsing presidential candidates lately. While the ones like Kanye West do a good job of endorsing himself, others like Eminem have voiced their support for Joe Biden while Lil Wayne has recently advocated for Trump. Wayne was invited to the White House where he says he had a little chat with POTUS last week.

Offset Exposed Cardi B For Lying In New Song 

Posted by Ashley Wiltshire Tuesday, November 3, 2020 9:18:00 AM

​Offset is exposing Cardi B for capping in her lyrics.

These days with rappers who “do anything for clout,” as Cardi B and Offset would say, it’s hard to imagine that there is anyone not lying in their music. When artists put pen to paper or even if they go off the top, the generic subject matters always seem to conjure up, and let’s face it, most of us don’t have sports cars, hundreds of bands, nor a single magazine for our fictitious firearms. So as they say, somebody lying!

Adele Iced Skepta Dating Rumors, “the (single) cat lady that I am!” 

Posted by Ashley Wiltshire Thursday, October 29, 2020 10:36:00 AM

Adele has stepped forward to ice rumors she’s dating rapper Skepta.

Despite pouring out her heart and soul in her lyrics, Adele has remained a fairly private person when it comes to media coverage of her personal life. Since her divorce from Simon Konecki in 2019, the singer’s love life has been picked apart by fans, trolls, and gossip enthusiasts. Over the past year, she has repeatedly been linked to British rapper Skepta, and now rumors are indicating that a serious romance may be blooming between the two artists. According to People, sources close to Adele say that “things have been heating up” in the relationship. The source explained why a relationship between these two makes sense, saying, “They run in the same circles in London, and she’s having fun.”

Chris Brown Slams Critics Of His New Music As He Vacation With His Kids 

Posted by Ashley Wiltshire Tuesday, October 27, 2020 10:15:00 AM

Chris Brown choose to pay attention to his kids rather than feed into his critics.

Celebrities deal with more criticism than us regular folk could ever imagine, and most of the time, they try to ignore it to maintain their sanity. However, every once in a while, a star has simply had enough trash talk from haters to let another moment pass without addressing it. Although it isn’t clear what prompted Chris Brown to lash out at his critics on social media last week, he was clearly fed up with something or someone when he decided to vent his frustrations publicly. After previewing new music last week, Breezy took to his Instagram stories to speak directly to people who apparently had some negative things to say.

Ice Cube Blast Eric Trump For Tweeting Photoshopped Photo With 50 Cent In Trump Hats 

Posted by Ashley Wiltshire Wednesday, October 21, 2020 8:26:00 AM

Ice Cube fired back at Eric Trump for sharing a photo of him and 50 Cent wearing Trump hats.

The past week has been a bit of a circus for rap legends Ice Cube and 50 Cent, who have aligned themselves with the Trump campaign. Last week, the former N.W.A. rapper was forced to defend himself from backlash for working with President Trump’s campaign, and yesterday, 50 Cent came under fire for openly tweeting his support for Trump because he didn’t like Biden’s alleged tax plan. We say “alleged” because it’s unclear if what 50 shared is 100% accurate, given that we’re living in an era of misinformation dominating the communication channels.
