Will Smith and Martin Lawrence are having a moment. Three decades after they were two of the biggest stars on television, they're proving themselves to be even bigger draws as movie stars. Bad Boys: Ride or Die has killed at the box office, and part of the reason why is the promo tour Smith and Lawrence are on. They're everywhere, sharing anecdotes about their friendship and their seemingly bulletproof franchise. The Smith and Lawrence convo we really wanted, however, was who the greatest rapper of all time is.

Smith and Lawrence recently went on the YouTube series GOAT Talk to discuss, well GOAT topics. Given the impact that both of them have had on hip-hop culture, it was only a matter of time before they were hit with the "GOAT rapper" question. Their answers did not disappoint. Martin Lawrence decided to go with a generational peer and a close personal friend. "I would have to say Snoop Dogg for me," he noted. "Because Snoop's always come through for me. He's done my show and has always been excellent. And he's a good friend of mine." Both Lawrence and Snoop Dogg appeared in the 2019 film The Beach Bum. The latter also made a cameo on a 1994 episode of Martin.

Will Smith Struggled To Pick Between Three Rappers



Will Smith's answer was more intriguing. He rose to fame as a rapper. He was the first rapper to win a Grammy, in fact, so he's technically a GOAT candidate himself. Rest assured, however, the actor didn't pick himself. He decided to go old school with his picks. "I think that in terms of changing the game," he posited. "Rakim." Will Smith was unable to limit his answer to one, though. He mentioned two other men who shaped his love for the genre. "The combination of Melle Mel and Grandmaster Caz," he explained. "In terms of me developing my love for hip-hop." The Caz shout out is timely, given that Smith recently encountered the rapper during a radio interview.

Smith gushed about Grandmaster Caz during his appearance on Sway In the Morning. He told the host that he modeled his rhyming style after the Cold Crush legend. In the middle of his interview, Caz walks in the room and leaves the Oscar winner starstruck. Smith let out a yell of surprise before hyping up the rapper to the rest of the room. "Ladies and gentleman," he said. "The full, complete and total inspiration for the Fresh Prince: Grandmaster Caz." Smith might've said Rakim first, but this encounter tips the scale in Caz's favor.

Yung Bleu and Boosie Badazz used to be on the same team. The former signed to Boosie's record label Bad Azz Music Syndicate in 2020. He even released a statement claiming he was "Badazz for life." This turned out to be untrue. Yung Bleu walked away from the label and signed with Empire Records the same exact year. Boosie did not appreciate the flip. The two rappers have been beefing ever since, with Boosie claiming that Yung Bleu has used the beef to help promote his albums. Things reached a boiling point on June 12.

Yung Bleu hopped on Instagram to absolutely blast Boosie Badazz for his claims. He criticized Boosie and went as far as to suggest that he's the one who's been using the beef to keep his relevant. "Boosie got my n*ts in his mouth every interview that n**ga obsessed," the rapper wrote. "I dropped a rap album with one week promo and no singles just to get out of my deal and did 17x more than you." Yung Bleu got even meaner with the rest of his rant. He mocked Boosie Badazz for being over the hill, and claimed that he could no longer book shows the way he used to. "I'm not arguing with a n**ga only barely get booked in 100 miles out Mississippi."

Not blunt enough? Don't worry, Yung Bleu had more. He called his former label boss a "lame" and went after the man's living conditions. "U better hope a storm don't come and knock them cheap a*z paper thin a*z condos in your backyard down," he wrote. "N**ga got a motel 6 at his house shut up." It's the year of the hater, per Katt Williams, and Yung Bleu is making sure fans don't forget. He eviscerated the rapper so severely that commenters actually came to Boosie's defense. "[Boosie] put in soooooo much work," one user wrote. "You could never downplay his work ethic." Another pointed the impact that Yung Bleu has had compared to Boosie. "Bleu," they commented. "We not picking you over Boosie lol... ever."

In Bleu's defense, he did try to resolve things peacefully. So he said, at least, during an April interview with Sway In the Morning. The rapper claimed that he tried to terminate his contract while still keeping a good relationship with Boosie Badazz, but felt that their squabbling reached a breaking point. "Now it's just like, nah," he told Sway. "I feel like it's over, that era for me over. I put it behind me." Boosie has not yet responded to Bleu's Instagram rant, but if we know anything about the Louisiana rapper, it's that he will have plenty to say.

Drake is really entering a new phase of his life. His battle with Kendrick Lamar is over, as far as we can tell, and he's dedicated himself to "summer vibes." He's dropped a baffling cover of "Hey There Delilah" and a Sexyy Red duet. Drake's latest decision, however, may be his most significant. The Toronto rapper has decided to purchase a sprawling, $15 million ranch in Washington County, Texas. He announced the purchase in May, but he finally unveiled the ranch on his Instagram on June 12.

Drake's photoshoot is moody as one would expect from the king of captions. There's photos of him outside the ranch, which is called the Inn at Dos Brisas, and photos of him inside. Fans get a peek at Drake's horses, as well as the stables in which they're kept. They also get to see him look forlorn and contemplative inside his vehicle. The caption simply reads: "wick 'em." It's unclear what this means in the context of the Inn at Dos Brisas. It does, however, harken back to Drake's 2023 song "Wick Man," which throws subs at several other rappers. The song also sees the 6 God make reference to several international locations.

Drake has been hyping up his Texas purchase for months. In September 2023, the rapper posted a video in which he announced his plans to buy property. He even adopted a Texas accent for the bit. "Me and my partna', we done gone country on y'all," he told fans. "We said we was gonna do it for a lot of years and we're doing it today. The sale is made. We gotta drop a new one for this. If you see your girl at the 'Lover Boy Lane,' it's over." 'Lover Boy Lane' is, of course, a reference to Drizzy's album Certified Lover Boy. Fittingly, the album contains the song "TSU," which is an abbreviation for Texas State University.

Drake has always had a soft spot for Texas. One of his breakout songs mentions Houston in its title, "Houstatlantavegas." The rapper has paid tribute to H-Town on "November 18th" by sampling a DJ Screw record and shouting out regional legends. There's also the iconic "9AM In Dallas," the planned opener for his debut album. It kickstarted the timestamp series that Drake is still riding out to this day.

The Young Thug trial continues to take unexpected turns. The rapper's lawyer, Brian Steel, confronted both the judge and the prosecution over meeting with a witness in private. The lawyer's refusal to reveal his source subsequently led to him being charged with criminal contempt. The judge sentenced him to 10 weekends in jail, which translates to 20 days. Steel has now been granted bond, however. This means he won't have to serve time behind bars.

Steel's own attorney, Ashleigh Merchant, confirmed this development on Wednesday, June 12. "We are thrilled that Brian will be home with his family for Father's Day this weekend," she told the Atlanta Journal Constitution. "We appreciate how quickly and thoughtfully our appellate courts handled this unfortunate situation." It was unclear whether Steel would be granted bond. Prior to being granted bond, he asked if he could serve his jail time alongside his client, Young Thug, so they could continue to work on the case. "Those 20 days consisting of every weekend for the next 10 weekends," the judge originally ordered. "Tt's to commence this Friday, June the 14th at 7 p.m. and not to end until Sunday, August the 18th, 2024, at 7 p.m."

Brian Steel's commitment to his client has been ironclad. The lawyer spoke highly of Young Thug during an interview with 11Alive in 2023. He not only refuted the charges made against Thug, but made a case for the rapper being a hero. "[He's] wrongly charged," he asserted. "I think a person like Jeffery Williams is a hero and not a criminal... He has given jobs to people only in the inner community. He'll only hire from the inner communities in his studios or his rap label." Furthermore, Steel praised Thug for being a good role model on the youth. "He goes around our country," the lawyer claimed. "And he tells people, 'Hustle doesn't mean sell drugs.'"

Young Thug has been similarly complimentive of Steel. He even gave a shout out to the lawyer on his 2018 song "Oh Okay." The rapper used Steel as one of the many examples of his lavish lifestyle. "Cop a Bugatti out of there. I got on white, I can't kneel," he raps. "Pour out the pint, watch it spill, yeah (Oh, oh, okay). My lawyer Brian Steel, yeah (Okay)." Gunna and Lil Baby are the other artists on the song, which subsequently gives "Oh Okay" a complicated historical context. Gunna was part of the YSL indictment. He decided to cop a plea deal, however, to avoid prison time. The rapper's decision has led to widespread speculation that he "snitched" on Thug. He adamantly denies this.

It's no secret that it's been an incredibly busy couple of years for Sexyy Red. Aside from continuing to take over the charts with her catchy singles and high-profile collabs, the "Pound Town" performer also expanded her family. A few months back, she welcomed her second child. Of course, she used the concept of the birth for her "Rich Baby Daddy" video with Drake and SZA, which has unsurprisingly racked up millions of views.

She was also recently rumored to appear in viral footage of a nasty airport brawl and get arrested for it, though she insists it wasn't her. Sexyy even prompted speculation that she's in a relationship with Chief Keef with some suggestive selfies, forcing her to shut down fans' theories with yet another suggestive post. Amid all of this, the femcee decided to take some time for herself earlier this week, and fans can't blame her. She did so by treating herself to a boob job, which she showed off in a new photo shared on Twitter/X today.

Jay-Z has become the face of the NFL when it comes to musical affiliation. The rapper's company, Roc Nation, entered a partnership with the league in 2019 that has played a role in several half time shows. It was still surprising, however, to see Hov take the stage himself, and perform during Tom Brady's Patriots Hall of Fame induction. The Brooklyn legend came out and shocked the crowd by rapping his 2003 song "Public Service Announcement" while Brady entered the stadium. It was appreciated by music fans, but it was especially appreciated by Brady himself.

The quarterback has voiced his adoration for Jay-Z on multiple occasions. He told Mass.Live that he was a "big fan" of Hov in 2014, and "Public Service Announcement" was the song that he chose as his theme whenever he stepped on the field. In particular, the lyrics: "Allow me to reintroduce myself." There's some fitting parallels between both men. Both Brady and Jay retired at the peak of their powers. Both returned and proved that they still had what it took to compete, further validating their "GOAT" status. Brady and Jay-Z also attended a breakfast that was organized by Fanatics CEO Michael Rubin by in May.

"Public Service Announcement" is a crucial song in Jay-Z's catalog. The rapper discussed its importance in his 2010 memoir Decoded, and the interaction that led to its creation. He recalled a Village Voice writer criticizing his embrace of materialism in his music, and wrote the verses as a response. "It was a test of creativity and wit," he wrote in the memoir. "I call rhymes like the first verse on 'PSA' Easter-egg hunts. If you just listen to it once without paying attention, you'll brush past some lines... [They] can offer more meaning and resonance every time you listen to them." Brady has obviously listened multiple times. He even threw up Jay-Z's Roc-A-Fella sign during the induction performance.

Brady thanked those attending, and those watching, in an Instagram post before the induction. "Coming back to New England to celebrate what WE accomplished was so special," he wrote in the caption. "And it's a day that I'll never forget. Being able to spend time with teammates, family, friends, coaches... And most importantly all the fans of Patriot nation is something that I'll never take for granted."

Recently, Twitter/X announced that moving forward, all likes on the platform will be kept private. This means that now, the only users who will be able to see if someone likes a post will be its author and the user who liked it. The platform says the change was made in order to "better protect your privacy," and to boost engagement as users can now freely like the content they want to see more of without fear of other users knowing what they're up to. The change has prompted mixed reactions so far, with most agreeing that it will make the user experience worse. Others, like Metro Boomin, couldn't be happier.

The producer shared his take on the update with his followers on the platform earlier today. "Likes finally private," he wrote alongside a series of fire emojis.

Last month, Kehlani announced the release of her 4th studio album CRASH. The project has already been teased with a pair of new singles and fans won't have to wait long to hear the whole thing. The album is expected to be released in its entirety next week on June 21. It represents a year already packed full of major R&B releases from artists like PARTYNEXTDOOR, 4batz, SiR, Kali Uchis, Erika De Casier, and more. But with the release of her new album she also undertook a massive charitable gesture with her newest line of merch sales.

Kehlani has been one of the loudest voices speaking in support of the people of Palestine in all of entertainment. It's been a controversial subject since October of last year when long-standing tensions between Palestine and Israel erupted into full-on conflict. Now the R&B singer backed up her vocal support with a massive financial donation not just to Palestine, but to Sudan and Congo as well. Last month, she released the second single from CRASH, "Next 2 U" and its accompanying music video. She also launched a merch line in tandem with the release designed to raise money for Operation Olive Branch. In a new Instagram post she revealed the staggering amount of money she raised as a result. Check out the post below.
