Clubhouse is the place to be if one wants to hear Wack 100's thoughts on just about anything. Wack is one who always lets his opinions be known, regardless of what anyone else thinks, and this time, he joined The Daily Read and discussed Kanye West. There has been an increasing interest in Ye since it was announced that he and Kim Kardashian were divorcing, and now that they both have new love interests, things have kicked up a notch.
Although his antics have often become trending topics, West is highly regarded as a visionary and creative mind unlike any other. Some have labeled him a genius while others call him crazy, and Wack dropped off his insight into the mind of Kanye West.
Kevork Djansezian / Stringer / Getty Images"Let me give you a description of where he's at right now. This where he at 'cause I spent a lot of time with him," said Wack. "Think about your extreme to anything. He's not going to look at the extreme. He's thinking past the extreme."
"Not only is he thinking past the extreme, he's in that point in time trying to figure out how to accomplish it. Right? That supersedes the extreme. So, to us, we're like, 'Yo, you gon' do what? Ah, man, you crazy as a mothaf*cker, man.'" Wack said that Ye told him that he wants to be a part of building the future, so he's taking on "designing and creating" to attain his vision.
Wack also dubbed those who call Kanye "crazy" to be "mental midgets" who don't have the capacity to see the world the way Ye does. Listen to the clip of Wack 100 on Clubhouse below.

There's nothing like kicking off the week with a surprise drop from Gucci Mane and Lil Durk. On Monday (January 24), Gucci Mane shared a preview of his new track "Rumors" which hosts a look from Chicago icon Durkio. The last time these two met on wax was back in 2014 on Durk's "War Wit Us (Remix)" where listeners found Gucci adding his talents for the assist. They traded spots this time around, and Gucci is counting on it becoming a hood anthem.
"This gone be a street smash when we drop this," he wrote on Instagram. Not only have we received the track, but Gucci and Durk dropped off the visual where fans can see them posted up with their crews as they spit bars about their indestructibility in the streets. Tay Keith holds down production on this one, so stream "Rumors" and let us know what you think of Gucci and Durk's latest.
I don't want no n*ggas who you catch, I want the one I paid for
We on his ass, he in the A, you see how long they stay for
Ain't no hotel room, we pop outside the Hyatt with dracos

Those live-action remakes continue as Disney is currently working on an updated version of Snow White. The classic 1961 animation is a favorite among Disney purists, but since it was announced, the company has been met with backlash. First, it was shared that Colombian-American actress Rachel Zegler would star as the famed porcelain-skinned Disney princess, causing some to bombard the West Side Story star with racist insults.
The Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs live-action remake is being criticized once again, but this time, it comes from Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage who can't believe Disney even considered drudging up the storyline for a second go-round. The acclaimed actor has a common form of dwarfism called achondroplasia.
Alberto E. Rodriguez / Staff / Getty Images"Literally no offense to anyone, but I was a little taken aback when they were very proud to cast a Latina actress as Snow White, but you're still telling the story of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs," Dinklage said while on Marc Moron's WTF podcast. "Take a step back and look at what you're doing there. It makes no sense to me."
"You're progressive in one way, but then you're still making that f*cking backwards story about seven dwarfs living in a cave together, what the f*ck are you doing, man? Have I done nothing to advance the cause from my soapbox?" he added. "I guess I'm not loud enough. I don't know which studio that is, but they were so proud of it. All love and respect to the actress and all the people who thought they were doing the right thing. But I'm just like, what are you doing?"
It isn't much known about the development of this film, but Dinklage isn't totally opposed to it moving forward. "If you tell the story of Snow White with the most f*cked up, cool, or progressive spin on it? Let's do it. All in." Meanwhile, next up on Disney's schedule seems to be their live-action take on The Little Mermaid, starring Halle Bailey.

It was months ago when Wack 100 made comments that raised eyebrows. While on the Bootleg Kev podcast, Wack suggested that there was a second sex tape involving Ray J and Kim Kardashian, a video that hadn't been seen by the public. "All I know is Kanye, holla at me, bro. We got part two on the laptop. Ain't never been seen. We'd love for you to have it," Wack said at the time. "It'd be a great personal, private NFT."
The very idea that there would be a Part 2 of the infamous Ray J and Kim K sex tape lit the internet ablaze, but Kardashian's attorney quickly issued a response. "The claim that there is an unreleased sex tape is unequivocally false," the lawyer said.
Jamie McCarthy / Staff / Getty ImagesHowever, while speaking with Jason Lee of Hollywood Unlocked, Ye confirmed that he did, indeed, receive the second sex tape. Not only that, but he returned it to his estranged wife.
"I went and got the laptop from Ray J myself that night," said West. "Got on the red-eye and met this man at the airport, then got on the red-eye, came back, delivered it to her at 8 a.m. in the morning." It was something that reportedly brought Kim to tears.
"She cried when she saw it. You know why she cried when she seen the laptop?" West questioned. "It represents how much she’s been used. It represents how much people didn’t love her and they just saw her as a commodity." Lee asked him if by "they" he meant the public or Kim's family. Ye said he was speaking in general, adding that he wasn't interested in being mean or spiteful.

She's back at it with another cover and this time, Chlöe is tackling a classic. Minnie Riperton first shared "Lovin You" back in the 1970s and for decades, the ethereal single has been a staple on R&B playlists. Some have dedicated "Lovin You" to their partners or romantic interests, but Riperton famously created the song's melody for her daughter, Saturday Night Live icon Maya Rudolph. The comedian was only two-years-old when the song was released and Riperton repeats her name at the end of the track.
Thousands of singers have given their takes on this fan favorite, and most recently, Chlöe popped up on Instagram with her addition. The "Have Mercy" artist seductively delivered a sexy version that received a mixed reaction from fans.
Bryan Bedder / Stringer / Getty ImagesMany praised Chlöe for the performance as they commented that her vocals were on point, while others weren't so taken with her version, as they thought she was overdoing things. After witnessing the conversation over her video take place, Chlöe chimed in with a response to her critics.
"I like how you can’t criticize my singing or who i am as an artist, so people find something else to find [smiling face with halo] that’s a compliment [exhaling emoji][smiling face with hearts emoji]." This isn't the first time Chlöe has taken hits over her social media videos, so she's taking it all in stride.
Watch her clip below.

He may have praised Jake Paul in the past, but Mike Tyson isn't interested in stepping into the ring with him. Tyson and Paul recently made headlines after a rumor circulated that they verbally agreed to a multi-million dollar bout, but Tyson stepped in to say that he's never heard of such an offer. As one of the greatest boxers to ever lace up his gloves, it's expected that people would want to see him face off with a new generation of fighters. However, doing so isn't a priority for Tyson.
“It was all word of mouth and stuff, I don’t know," said the sports icon while visiting the Full Send podcast.
“I’m not even interested in doing this stuff. It’s fun. If it was back when I first started, yes, and we were both fighting on the same card, we were both active, yeah I would do it. But it’s just turned out bad, it’s not going to turn out right," Tyson added, suggesting that there may have been a missed window of opportunity when he was accepting exhibition fights.
"Every twelve or thirteen months, there is something missing like boom, I'm losing muscle mass," he added. "I wanted to do it the first time just for fun, other people took it to the financial level and I didn't enjoy it anymore." He also mentioned that he may never step into the ring again. Watch Tyson on the Full Send podcast below.

She's received support from fans after it was announced that her marriage to DeVon Franklin was ending, and now Meagan Good is giving more insight into their split. It came as a surprise when Good and Franklin issued a joint statement about their divorce, especially due to the uber-religious couple being so vocal about their love and marriage. While they've kept the details of what led up to the split close to the chest, for the time being, Good caught up with XONecole and spoke about "grieving" her divorce.
“Throughout life, I’ve always approached relationships as understanding that at some point, they’ll get to the place that they’re going to, and then they would be over,” Good said during a Twitter Spaces chat. “I’ve always had an attitude of like, 'Alright, next chapter. We’ll see what’s next,' and being okay with that and appreciating what you give to someone and what they give to you and sharing a moment in time and in life that you never get back regardless of how it ends.”
Lily Lawrence / Stringer / Getty ImagesGood didn't take that approach with Franklin because she said she truly believed her marriage would last for the remainder of her life. She called her divorce “the most painful thing I’ve ever experienced in my life” but added, “I am still optimistic. I still am hopeful for the future. I still—maybe this isn’t a chapter, but I just feel that it’s my next act in life and I trust God.”
“Not everything makes sense to me right now, but I do trust God overall and I’m excited to see what this next act of life is going to be and what God has in store and that’s all I can really do but even in doing that, I do have gratitude and so much joy in my heart for these past 11 years that DeVon and I have been together," said Good. "What he’s given into my life and what I was able to give to him, just everything.”

He's currently busy working on what he claims is his final album after spending most of his life in the industry, yet still, there are people who refuse to put respect on Bow Wow's name. The rapper has often found himself on the receiving end of jokes and jabs from the public, and many of these social media moments turn into trending topics, but Bow Wow's peers are quick to swoop in to defend his catalog.
We've seen him top the charts, take to worldwide stages for decades, appear in reality television shows, host 106 & Park, star in films, and receive cosigns from respected artists. Yet, a Twitter user sparked backlash after they wrote, "Imagine a n*gga puts a gun to your head and tells you to name 3 bow wow songs."
Marcus Ingram / Stringer / Getty ImagesIt's obvious that the person was looking for a laugh, and while Bow Wow himself joked about the tweet, fans noted that he's had several hits under his belt. Even those that don't particularly like his music chimed in to say that the person's tweet fell flat.
"I know Bow Wow goofy but don’t do this. He definitely got hits," one person wrote. Bow has taken this opportunity to engage in another exchange with fans, adding, "Bro i just got off an arena tour with not ONE new song out. My money good for life my kids is too. I don’t trip over debates. I live in the real world."
Check out a few posts from Bow Wow, as well as reactions, below.

As R. Kelly's legal team is switching up, the singer's former manager has also faced trouble with the authorities. Months ago, an alleged associate of Kelly, Michael Williams, was sentenced to eight years in prison for reportedly setting Azriel Clary's car on fire. Clary was once Kelly's live-in girlfriend along with Joycelyn Savage, and the two women amassed attention during their highly-publicized fallout.
While Clary has distanced herself from Kelly, Savage has reportedly stuck by the singer's side through his recent trial. Now, it is being reported that Savage and her family were at the center of another case involving Kelly's former manager, James Mason.
Nuccio DiNuzzo / Stringer / Getty ImagesAccording to TMZ, Savage's parents accused Mason of calling and threatening to "f*cking kill" them." A warrant for his arrest was issued but Mason would later turn himself over to the authorities. It's been reported that this case again Mason was dismissed last month after he agreed
to a permanent protective order that prohibits him from having any contact with" Joycelyn or her family.
Meanwhile, as Kelly prepares for his next trial, his friend Kelly Price recently shared her experiences with him. She noted that she and Kelly were as close as siblings, and while she never saw anything inappropriate, there are many aspects of the entertainment industry that don't get talked about publicly.
"I think where there's smoke, there's fire," she added. "In this business, and nobody really wants to talk about it, in this business, that's not odd, that's actually the culture. It's the culture... I've seen mothers bring their daughters backstage. And that's the thing nobody wants to talk about."

An interview with The Los Angeles Times has caused Damon Albarn to be on the receiving end of backlash from Taylor Swift fans. The Blur and Gorillaz frontman recently sat down with the publication for a chat, but after the L.A. Times tweeted a brief portion of the interview, things became tense for Albarn. He was said to have praised Billie Eilish as "exceptional," but when asked about Swift, he answered, "She doesn't write her own songs."
In context, the interviewer called Swift an "excellent songwriter" to which Albarn gave his answer. When the interviewer contested and said Swift does pen her own lyrics, Albarn added, “That doesn’t count. I know what co-writing is. Co-writing is very different to writing... I’m not hating on anybody, I’m just saying there’s a big difference between a songwriter and a songwriter who co-writes. Doesn’t mean that the outcome can’t be really great."
Ian Gavan / Staff / Getty ImagesThe comments weren't lost on Taylor Swift who clapped back on Twitter. "@DamonAlbarn I was such a big fan of yours until I saw this," wrote Swift.
"I write ALL of my own songs," she continued. "Your hot take is completely false and SO damaging. You don’t have to like my songs but it’s really f*cked up to try and discredit my writing. WOW." Swift then added, "PS I wrote this tweet all by myself in case you were wondering."
Swifts fans are known for jumping to her defense with a vengeance and all of the attention caused the Gorillaz musician to offer up an apology.
"I totally agree with you. i had a conversation about songwriting and sadly it was reduced to clickbait," Albarn claimed. "I apologise unreservedly and unconditionally. The last thing I would want to do is discredit your songwriting. I hope you understand. - Damon." Some continued to pelt Albarn with criticism because they felt as if he was shifting blame to the publication. Check it out below.
