When I heard Joe Budden was trending, I had to rub my hands together like Stevie J because I knew this was going to be good. Apparently, Joe Budden is the “ambassador of Hip Hop” and felt that it was his duty to educate Lil Yachty. During a recent appearance on Complex’s Everyday Struggle, Lil Yachty confirmed why Joe Budden is a non-factor. Yachty thought that it would be acceptable to express his gratitude for his many blessings. However, Joe Budden (aka the Grinch who stole everything) wasn’t having it.
When Yachty stated he was happy for the millions that he has made and the millions of dollars worth of jewelry he wears on a daily basis, Joe proceeds to tell him he was lying. Now I’m no psychologist, but I’m almost positive you can’t know how another person feels on a regular basis. In addition to drilling about whether he has a 360 deal, he continued to berate him throughout the interview. The last time I remember hearing about Joe Budden was when he ran up on some teens following a prank went wrong. I’m detecting a trend. Joe won’t run up on any of the industry vets like that, but he felt strong enough to attack someone half his age.
The truth is, Lil Yachty is happy and rightfully so. Whether you’re a fan of his music or not, he’s very successful. He’s turned his music into a legitimate business, with endorsements from Target to Sprite. He’s touring around the world, rubbing elbows with the industry’s elite at the Met Gala all before the age of 21. Meanwhile, Joe Budden is hoping to be invited back to Love and Hip Hop NY. Instead of attacking someone at the height of their game, take a cue from Kendrick and “be humble”.

When White Privilege Isn’t Enough to Get Into USC: Lori Loughlin Sentenced to 2 Months in Prison
Actress Lori Loughlin was sentenced to two months in prison today for her role in the college admissions scandal. If you haven’t followed the 10-month-long saga, Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli, a fashion designer, plead not guilty to a bribery charge in a college admission scam back in 2019… Because white privilege just isn’t what it used to be.
The two later plead guilty to paying William Rick Singer, the mastermind, $500,000 to guarantee their two daughters a spot at the University of South Carolina.
Loughlin’s sentence came several hours after her husband’s five-month sentence. According to the US Attorney for the District of Massachusetts, Giannulli’s five-month sentence also came with a whopping fine of $250,000 and 250 hours of community service.
“[Giannulli] engaged more frequently with Singer, directed the bribe payments to USC and Singer, and personally confronted his daughter’s high school counselor to prevent the scheme from being discovered, brazenly lying about his daughter’s athletic abilities,” US Attorney Andrew Lelling of Massachusetts said in the memo released on Tuesday. “Loughlin took a less active role, but was nonetheless fully complicit, eagerly enlisting Singer for a second time for her younger daughter, and coaching her daughter not to ‘say too much’ to her high school’s legitimate college counselor, lest he caught on to their [fradulent activity].
