If you follow T.I. on social media, you know he’s about that protest life.

The King of the South stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Thursday and opened up about protesting the recent election results and changing his name to TIP. The rapper was recording in NYC when he decided to join the call to action against Donald Trump that was taking place around the corner from Trump Towers.

When Kimmel asked TIP why he chose to make this statement, he replied, “Nobody in their right mind can ever assume that just gathering and going somewhere and showing your incredible disdain for a decision that the nation has made that that will actually do anything immediately. I voted and I’ve done everything that I could prior to now, but after the decision of the election happened, I just want to be able to look my kids in the eyes and make sure that they know that I did everything that the Constitution allowed me to do to show my objection to this decision.”

The Atlanta legend continued on about his upcoming album Us or Else, calling it a protest album. He said, “It’s protesting against police brutality. It’s in memory of all the young men and women who have lost their lives at the hands of law enforcement unnecessarily out there in the communities with no accountability whatsoever. I just really want to see the nation head in a better direction.”

As far as the low-key name change, T.I. told Kimmel, “TIP is my name, that’s my childhood name that was given to me by my father.”

King Of Queens: Nas Had An Unexpected Reaction To His Mural In Queensbridge

Annenberg Foundation And KCRW's 'Sound In Focus' Concert With NAS And Wild Belle

Nas is one of the most celebrated rappers in hip hop, so it comes as no surprise that a mural was made in likeness, in his hometown of Queens, New York.

But the rap king felt otherwise when he got his first glimpse of the mural. Nas stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live and revealed how he first felt when he heard that a French artist had painted that mural of him in Queensbridge. He confessed, “It scared me because usually when they put a mural up of someone in the neighborhood it’s because he’s dead. But it’s a huge honor. I hope that the kids out there see it as an example…if you have a dream go after it.”

Nas also opened up about his upcoming album and when fans can expect it to drop. Although he got everyone hype with his song “Nas Album Done” on DJ Khaled’s Major Key project, there’s no concrete answer on when we can expect the new Escobar album. He told Kimmel, “Things are changing, music is changing…I got to feel it. It’s all about the feeling.”

Major Baby Alert: DJ Khaled Plans To Film His Son’s Birth On Snapchat

 

If you follow DJ Khaled on any form of social media, you know he’s an open book. Well, things are about to get even more up close and personal.

 

The entertainer and Snapchat king stopped by Jimmel Kimmel to chop it up about his upcoming album Major Key, revealing the elaborate cover art that so perfectly captures what he defines as success (yes, that is a real lion).

Aside from his many exciting business ventures, the first-time dad also revealed how he plans to welcome his mini mogul into the world. “I’m having a boy — my first child,” he confirmed. “I want to Snapchat the whole birth.” When asked how his fiancee’s feels about the matter, Khaled said, “The key is that I’m the king and every queen should support the king.” Khaled has every last detail planned out, down to the vibes of Bob Marley and Jay Z that will be playing in the delivery room and photos of Michael Jordan and Muhammad Ali that will adorn the nursery.

Khaled also took the time to direct a message to his unborn bundle of joy. “I wanna tell my son right here on the Kimmel show, I love you and I got us.” Now if that doesn’t make your heart melt, we don’t know what can.

Watch: Steph Curry & Other NBA Greats Read Mean Tweets About Themselves

Los Angeles Clippers v Golden State Warriors

The NBA final match up between Steph Curry and the Warriors versus Lebron James and the Cavaliers is a perfect excuse for meme makers and tweeters to get their shine on via social media— even at the risk of sounding cruel and rude.

[ione_embed src=https://www.youtube.com/embed/21DNP22-EQI service=youtube width=650 height=360 type=iframe]

Luckily, the players in this year’s NBA finals and a few other basketball legends have a great sense of humor. Steph Curry, Shaquille O’Neal, Magic Johnson, Russell Westbrook, Blake Griffin, and Reggie Miller are among the players who made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live: Game Night prime time special on Thursday and read nothing but insults about themselves in a classic game of Mean Tweets.

Check out the hilarious video above to see who received the meanest insults.

Mets Mania: Did You Know These Celebrities Were NY Mets Fans?

Curtis '50 Cent' Jackson Visits Citi Field

As we are positively sure you’ve already heard unless you’ve been camping out under a rock for the last week, the Mets are currently battling out in the World Series.

Given that this is their first trip to the MLB’s most coveted of showdowns in nearly 30 years, Mets fans across the nation are ecstatic and more than ready to cheer on the team as they face the Kansas City Royals in a series that will likely go down in history.

As it goes, no sports team is complete without your fair share of celebrity enthusiasts, be it genuine fans who have been riding with the team from day one or those who have fallen in line along the way, and the Mets are no exception.

Jimmy Kimmel Disrespects A Famous Spike Lee Joint With “Do the WHITE Thing”


Twenty-six years after Spike Lee released one of his most iconic films, Do The Right Thing, Jimmy Kimmel decided to create a spoof entitled, Do the WHITE Thing. The four minute clip pokes fun at the immense gentrification Brooklyn has undergone over the last two decades.

We wonder if the spoof got Spike Lee’s blessing as one of the film’s cast members, Rosie Perez has a cameo in the clip. And as a choir of white actors sing the famous Public Enemy Anthem, “Fight The Power”,  Flavor Flav also pops up to add his catchphrase, “Yeah Boy!”

Brooklyn may look different with its expensive condos and fancy coffee shops, but race relations in this country are just as bad, if not worse than twenty-six years ago. Unarmed black men are the victims of racism and police brutality on a daily basis and Do The Right Thing is still culturally relevant and necessary viewing for a younger generation.

Public Enemy’s producer and bass player, Brian Hardgroove once said, “Law enforcement is necessary. As a species we haven’t evolved past needing that. “Fight the Power” is not about fighting authority—it’s not that at all. It’s about fighting abuse of power.”

This clip is yet another example of “white privilege” and an immense disconnect between Caucasians and people of color for Jimmy Kimmel to think this satirical “tribute” to Do The Right Thing was okay. Please find another way to glorify gentrification without appropriating our culture.
