Watch Warren G’s ‘Take Me Out To The Ball Game” Get Booed At Today’s Cubs Game

Warren G was invited to Wrigley Field to lead Chicago Cubs fans through “Take Me Out To The Ballgame.” It’s an easy enough task, and you’d think a professional rapper would be able to handle the lyrics to the classic baseball anthem, especially with the words displayed on the Jumbotron. But nope. After asking Cubs […]

Premature Evaluation: Drake Views

It’s been five years since Drake discovered the wonders and mysteries of his own ass. On 2011’s Take Care, his second album, Drake managed to turn himself into a compelling and fully-formed character: an ascendant rap god, excited but freaked out by his own sudden success, trying to figure out why all these people were […]
