Ever since Olivia Pope came on the scene a couple of years ago she has dominated the social media news feeds of Urban America. She has elements of many women we all know and it's great having a familiar face on television to look to. When Mary Jane Paul emerged on the scene a year or so ago, things got real. Now that Being Mary Jane is a full season in, and with Scandal three seasons in, we figured it was time to look at the women that are these characters. Given the chance who would you choose to date, to be a friend to? Who could you actually stand to be around?
Recently, there has been many cases of celebrities attacking their fans. Rihanna, Chris Brown, Kanye West and A$AP Rocky were examples of artists attacking hecklers and/or fans. Mayback Music Group artist, Wale, has become the latest artist to be caught in a scandal involving violence against a fan. The altercation between Wale and the fan, known as Side Show Joe (@chefboyrnach), took place in the stands of a WWE Monday Night Raw show and began after mentions were exchanged between the two. In the mentions, Side Show Joe insulted Wale, sending him a tweet telling him “meet me in the ring f*ck boy”. Wale then responded by asking the fan where he was seated, then met him where the confrontation ensued. Witnesses nearby said that Wale immediately started punching the fan. While it is hard to tell from the video whether or not an actual fight took place, a heated altercation definitely took place at that moment. While situations like this are great for the entertainment of those at home (and also great for bloggers), one must ask an important question. Are celebrities at fault for fighting fans, or do some of the fans bring these situations upon themselves?
There was a huge debate recently about the Mt. Rushmore of the NBA. Choosing the four greatest players to have ever played the sport of basketball proved to be quite the challenge and there is still no clear and decisive agreement on just four. The Mt. Rushmore of Hip-Hop may prove to be just as difficult, but we figured we'd give it a try and see what the readers think.
When I say Tyler, The Creator in this article I am also speaking of Odd Future (OFWGKTA), which includes Hodgy Beats, Left Brain, Earl Sweatshirt, Domo Genesis, Mike G, Frank Ocean, Syd Tha Kyd, Matt Martians, Hal Williams, Jasper Dolphins, Taco, Lucas Vercetti and L-Boy. This will also include the multiple groups in this collective: MellowHype, The Internet, The Jet Age Of Tomorrow, EarlWolf and MellowHigh. Ok, now that I’ve gotten all the formalities out of the way I can begin with the article.
I think his Tyler's music is ok, I even listen to it on occasion, I wouldn’t put him on any top ten lyricist list but his music is mostly mellow, campy and a bit dark at times. Many Hip-Hop heads may say that the brand of “Hip-Hop/Rap” that Tyler and his brand offer is ruining the state of music. In my opinion, yes and no to an extent. Does it even compare to greats like Nas, Jay-Z, 2 pac, Biggie or Pun? Not even close, but as the times go on and genres of music change and evolve, the brand of Tyler and his gang of misfits are the voice of this current generation, which I will explain later.
Recently, a high school senior in Gwinnett County, Georgia was suspended for a year for sexual harassment. What did he do that was considered sexual harassment? He didn't get caught groping another student. He wasn't catcalling and delivering sexual jeers at his peers. According to the student, he was suspended for nothing more than an innocent hug.
