Car​di B Feuds with Children (but Only When They Deserve It)

ZN8tion was asking for all the smoke the minute they said Cardi B smelled like poop.

Cardi B has shown that she doesn't take crap from anyone, and that especially and rightfully includes elementary school children.

"Not gonna let no little f***ing white boys come at me all motherf****ing day long," Cardi B said in an Instagram rant. The response was sparked by a diss track made by a rap group called ZN8tion, which is comprised of four 10-year-old brothers. "Motherf***ing shut the f*** up and stay in your motherf***ing place. Go drink your motherf***ing milk, bitch." The response was obviously justified. Just cause they're kids messing around does not give them the right to say cruel things like, "You smell like a turd" or that Cardi "reminds me of a germ." What creative and complex insults!

CARDI B, DISSED BY ZN8tion And GOES CRAZY www.youtube.com

Cardi B, a proud 26-year-old woman who isn't afraid to stand up for herself against pre-adolescents, is in no way shape or form a germ. And she definitely doesn't smell like poop! And she wanted to make that clear to all the world! If anything, ZN8tion smells like poop! I think Cardi B would agree with me. Besides, they're spouting this toxic narrative to all 119 of their followers! That's practically a movement!

Sure, the multi-millionaire rapper probably has better things to do then start an Instagram quarrel with small children, but frankly their insults were so diabolically evil that they deserved to be roasted as hard as they were. You think they'd be safe from Cardi's wrath because they're children? Think again. Everyone needs to grow up, especially ZN8tion. I hope Cardi B reminded these tweens to act their age (10). Also, take note of their webcam-quality video. Clearly, they're not rich like Cardi B. Clearly they're just kids who decided to record this video during one of their playdates while they were on a sugar high from eating too much Cinnamon Toast Crunch. I hope that sugar crash hurts, ZN8tion, and I hope you think twice before making such a catastrophic mistake again!

Jake Paul Charged in Connection with Looting—But He Did Nothing Wrong (This Time...)

As reprehensible as Jake Paul is as a person, he is innocent in this case

Over the weekend YouTube star Jake Paul was filmed in a Scottsdale, Arizona Mall that was in the process of being looted by rioters.

Though Paul insists that he did not participate in any of the looting or vandalism—which included smashing the windows of a display car and breaking into a Sephora—the Scottsdale Police Department reports receiving hundreds of tips alerting them to his involvement. Internet sleuths who saw footage of Paul posted on Instagram have insisted that Paul was complicit—if not directly implicated—in the worst of the rioting and wanted to see Paul locked up. As a result, the 23-year-old icon of Internet buffoonery has now been charged with two misdemeanors: Criminal Trespassing and Unlawful Assembly.

2017: The year that Hip-Hop became a Goliath

Looking back at the most memorable moments that made 2017 a banner year for the culture.

2017 was the year that Hip-Hop became the most popular music genre in the United States.

According to Neilson music stats, Hip-Hop is more streamed and consumed than Pop and Rock. For those who have been fans of the culture for years, even decades, the numbers are now a reflection of the influence rap music has truly had over mainstream America.

Since the days of Run-DMC on MTV, rap music has had a stronghold on popular culture. It has inspired fashion trends, dance moves, and slang which has permeated other forms of entertainment. Hip Hop artists are just as visible as any A-List actor or top athlete and have fans who are of the former and the latter. But the music itself is only a small part of what makes Hip-Hop popular this year.

The moments that happened outside of music helped with the overall visibility of the art that originated from The South Bronx. We took a look at the 10 moments from the beginning of the year to the most recent that helped make Hip-Hop the king of the music mountain in 2K17.
