HELL YEEEAAAAAAAH.

"Lil Wayne had some stupid words about Frank Ocean in a song."

What a fucking idiot. Homophobia is ridiculous and Ocean isn't even gay. Statistics suggest that more than 50 % of all straight males have a homosexual experience within their lives, and that's all that happened with Ocean.

"Travis Barker and Yelawolf are putting out an EP soon. Here are some details."

Yelawolf is terrible so that seems fitting enough.

"The company behind Tupac's hologram is bankrupt. Let's face it guys: Tupac is gone."

Yay! Now people can shut up about it!
