When it comes to giving back, rap star 21 Savage is a doer, not a talker.

The British-born and Atlanta-raised MC recently received the Carry the Torch Award from the Young Democrats for his advocacy in education, financial literacy, and immigration reform.

Soon after, his Leading By Example Foundation partnered with Atlanta’s Wade Walker Park Family YMCA, gifting 75 children with toys and meals for the holidays for the 5th year in a row.

Refusing to be defined by his violent past—which includes witnessing the murder of his best friend, and surviving 6 bullet wounds himself—the star’s continued commitment to humanitarian efforts are a powerful lesson in the power of one individual to turn their lives around and positively impact the lives of many.

”I want the kids to feel empowered,” the rapper shared, “and I hope I can be that inspiration for them.”

“Whenever they wanna take off they 'N*gga' suit, they can put they 'White Privilege' suit right back on!” fumed psychologist and activist Dr. Umar Johnson on a recent episode of the Joe Budden Podcast.

The outspoken Pan-Africanist asserted that calling the multi-platinum and Grammy-winning white rapper Eminem the GOAT is “white supremacy,” igniting a firestorm of controversy around questions of cultural appropriation and inclusion.

Not everyone agrees with Dr. Johnson. Even Budden—who’s beefed with Eminem in the past—seemed stunned, asking “You don’t think Eminem is one of the greatest rappers of all time?”

Hip-hop legend MC Shan had choice words for Dr. Johnson in his own 13-minute clapback:

”Everything ain’t a f*ckin’ race thing,” the 58-year-old veteran scoffed. “Em is down with us, son!”

Shan drew parallels between Eminem’s prior struggles with poverty and pills (“white boy problems”) and the drugs and destitution that plague black ghettos, claiming that the self-described “Rap God” transcended race by coming up through the trenches, paying his dues, and respecting hip-hop culture.

Is Eminem the GOAT?
Are we even allowed to say that?
Is Johnson right, or do you stand with Shan?
Should we worry about cultural appropriation?

A step toward freedom, or toward societal decline?

Days before Christmas, President Joe Biden commuted the sentences of 11 people said to be “serving disproportionately long sentences for non-violent drug offenses,” the White House wrote in a press release.

The president also pardoned thousands of “additional offenses of simple possession and use of ma*****na under federal and D.C. law.” Urging state governors to follow his administration’s lead, the White House added that “too many lives have been upended because of our failed approach to ma*****na,” he said.

The announcement comes as Democrat municipalities around the country move more broadly toward decriminalizing possession and usage of ma*****na.

Do you agree with Joe Biden?

Should the government lock people up for possessing ma*****na?

Is this the right approach to address issues like mass incarceration?

Dave Chappelle won’t win any GLAAD awards anytime soon.

In “The Dreamer”, the popular comedian’s latest Netflix special, Chappelle quadruples down on his refusal to omit jokes about sexual minorities from his routines.

”Maybe you should try some new material,” wrote Variety’s William Earl. A piece picked up by Yahoo! News blasted the comedian for using the first 12 minutes of his set to “attack transgender individuals.”

The special currently has an 85% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes, and has been ignored by professional critics except for Rolling Stone’s Marlow Stern, who panned the comic’s “puerile premises and punchlines.”

Comedians have long pushed the envelope of what’s acceptable to joke about. But in an era where inclusion and belonging are seen as primary virtues, many argue that it’s time for free speech advocates and comics alike to evolve with changing social norms.

Despite numerous “cancellations,” the artist formerly known as Kanye West always finds his way back to the limelight.

The controversial star raised eye-brows with a surprise return to X (formerly Twitter) in mid-December. He then announced pre-orders for his new $200 footwear, his first such product since Adidas abruptly severed ties with the artist one year ago.

Now, he's casually revealed what appear to be intentions to build a 100,000-acre city (twice as big as the city of New York) on the other side of the world. Ye took to X, posting an image of a recruitment announcement calling on “project managers, engineers, architects, contractors, and builders” to hop aboard the enterprise, which he plans to build somewhere… in the Middle East.

Whatever one might say about Ye, there’s no denying that his ambition, entrepreneurial instinct, and fearless commitment to pursuing his personal vision continue to make him one of the most unpredictable—if not legendary—artists ever.

What a time to be alive.

Powerhouse performer Taraji P. Henson held nothing back when asked about abandoning her illustrious acting career.

“The math ain't mathin'” the critically-acclaimed actress said, bursting into tears at a recent promotional event for the film “The Color Purple.”

“Big bills come with what we do,” Henson said. “Off the top Uncle Sam is getting 50 percent” she noted, highlighting her tax burden. She added “your team is getting 30 percent off of what you gross, not after what Uncle Sam took. Now do the math.”

Despite her long track record of success in TV and film, the veteran actress' exasperation in feeling undervalued was palpable:

"I'm just tired of working so hard, being gracious at what I do, getting paid a fraction of the cost... it seems every time I do something and I break another glass ceiling, when it's time to renegotiate, I'm at the bottom again like I never did what I just did, and I'm tired," she said, as tears flowed.

Henson's pain is understandable, but reveals a harsh reality:

Being a great artist will only take you so far—you must also be a great builder.

Issa Rae built a web series, and is now starring in billion-dollar blockbusters.
Tyler Perry built stage plays, and is now the billionaire owner of a production studio.
Shonda Rhimes built screenplays, and is now one of the most powerful people in television.

Become a builder, and the math will keep mathin’.

The best drama of 2023 isn’t on Netflix–it’s unfolding at America’s top university.

Claudine Gay was anointed as Harvard’s first black president in July. Less than six months later, she’s at the center of a scandal that doesn’t just threaten her job and Harvard’s reputation, it calls into question whether Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) initiatives have outlived their usefulness.

Gay had already faced charges of antisemitism after a recent testimony on Capitol Hill. Now her academic record is under fire, and she faces accusations of plagiarism that have been covered in major outlets like the Boston Globe, the Washington Post, and the New York Times.

In light of the allegations, critics warn that if Gay stays in her current role it will destroy Harvard’s reputation, and cost the institution billions in endowments.

Gay’s supporters claim that race is the only reason she’s being targeted. But given what’s been revealed, her critics claim it’s the only reason she was hired in the first place.

For now, the school is standing with Gay (who has threatened to sue if she’s fired).

So:

Should Claudine Gay resign?

Did Harvard make a mistake in hiring her?

Are they making a mistake by not firing her?

Did they sacrifice integrity for the sake of diversity?

Should our institutions return to purely merit-based hiring?

iCarly star Miranda Cosgrove shocked the internet when she revealed…her lifetime of sobriety?

During a recent appearance on Josh Peck's GOOD GUYS Podcast Cosgrove confessed “I've never been drunk in my entire life. I've never even been buzzed. I've sipped things. Like, two sips.”
She's no angel—confessing to once eating a cannabis-laced brownie that put her to sleep for 17 hours—but Cosgrove claims that despite many opportunities to drink or do drugs, she's always enjoyed being the designated driver.
Cosgrove's wholesomeness generated an overwhelmingly positive response on X (formerly Twitter). Most commenters praised the star for staying clean, highlighting her startling agelessness and bright attitude. What backlash there was was rebuked with viral retorts like “imagine not being able to have fun without drinking and smoking” and “this generation is cooked no way people are shaming her for being sober.”

Cosgrove's story echoes that of Hillary Duff's, another child actor whose photogenic family and fit physique recently went viral.

In an age where positive role models are rare, it gives us hope to see at least one celebrity with her head on straight.

Stay healthy.

Stay clean.
