Jack White, Grace Jones, & Tinashe Feat. Offset Were All On Fallon Last Night And We’re Choosing Not To Do 3 Posts About It

This post was originally published on this site

Look: Jimmy Fallon gets corny. We all know this. Nobody would argue. If you can make it through an entire episode of The Tonight Show, you are a person with an iron sense of will and self-assurance. (Or maybe you’re also a cornball.) But it’s also entirely possible that no late-night host in history has … More »

You don’t upstage Drake. It’s just not done. You might rap better than Drake on a song. Drake himself seems to have no problem with that. He keeps inviting rappers who might outrap him onto songs. But as far as sheer outsized movie-star magnetism, nobody is outgunning Drake. He is King Shit in the charisma … More »

There’s a moment on “Opps,” a track from the Kendrick Lamar-curated compilation Black Panther: The Album, where the South African rapper Yugen Blakrok says, “Stand behind my own bars like a seasoned criminal / Gotham City streets, I’ll play the Riddler.” Except we don’t hear the word “Riddler”; all we hear is a prolonged beep.

You know how long Culture II, the new Migos album, is? 24 songs! An hour and 45 minutes! It’s crazy! And yet someone thought that we needed more from Offset, a rapper who could really stand to go away and think things over for a while, this morning. Lil Jon, a driving force … More »

Cardi B Defends Offset’s Homophobic Lyric: “Our Schools Never Teach Us That These Are Bad Words”

This post was originally published on this site

Migos’ Offset got himself into hot water this week for rapping “I do not vibe with queers” on his guest verse on YFN Lucci’s “Boss Life.” Obviously, that seems pretty clearly homophobic — something that Migos don’t have a great track record with to begin with — but Offset insisted that he … More »
