President Barack Obama is delivering a message to the Black community: The coronavirus vaccine will not only be safe, but it will also save lives.

The former commander-in-chief’s comments, which he made Wednesday, came in response to growing backlash against the vaccine — especially in communities of color. “I understand, historically, everything dating back all the way to the Tuskegee experiments and so forth, why the African-American community would have some skepticism,” Obama says. “But the fact of the matter is, is that vaccines are why we don’t have polio anymore.”

To prove that the vaccine is safe for African-Americans, Obama says he’s considering “taking it on TV or having it filmed — just so that people know that I trust this science, and what I don’t trust is getting COVID.”

During a recent interview with Zane Lowe Lil Nas X talked about coming out as gay and how artists like Tyler, the Creator, and Frank Ocean have made it easier for him to be his authentic self.

I felt like I was just getting signs, okay, it’s time we do this thing…” says Nas X who was ready to take things to the next level in his career. “It was either going to be that or what? Pretend this for the rest of my entire life? And also not be able to express that through my music.”

Noreaga Doesn’t Think Eminem Still Has The Showmanship For Battle Rap



Noreaga was a guest on Math Hoffa’s My Expert Opinion podcast when he discussed the difference between mainstream rappers and those who battle rap.

“It’s about the showmanship and that’s something, unfortunately, in battle rap, you can’t teach. That’s a experience [sic], said N.O.R.E. He then began to name people who have had the showmanship to battle like Joe Budden who Noreaga says choked during a previous match.

But when it comes to Eminem, Noreaga says it would be hard for him to get back into the battle arena and although he could probably out rap anyone, N.O.R.E says it would be the showmanship where Em would lack.
