Jay-Z Calls Chris Martin A “Modern Day Shakespeare”

Jay-Z Calls Chris Martin A “Modern Day Shakespeare”
  » by Omar Mazariego Aug 2 2017, 3:20pm Share This Tweet This Email This Is Jay-Z breaking Biggie’s 4th Crack Commandment? In a recent interview with UK’s Metro News the Hip-Hop mogul called Coldplay’s Chris Martin a “modern day Shakespeare.”Wait, what?! Far be it for us to judge anyone based on their musical preference but comparing a man to a poet that many regard as the greatest writer in the English language seems a little much.We probably shouldn’t be too surprised though as Jigga and Martin have been kicking it for more than a decade now.Said Hova, “We are good friends — but what I got to say has nothing to do with our friendship… I have been in the industry long enough to know when I’m in the presence of a genius… and Chris Martin is just that… In years to come, Britain will look back at him as a modern day Shakespeare.”That’s......

#ReclaimingMyTime: The Funniest Congresswoman Maxine Water Memes

#ReclaimingMyTime: The Funniest Congresswoman Maxine Water Memes
Congresswoman Maxine Waters is a national treasure, capturing the hearts of the social media generation with her digs at President Donald Trump and ousted Fox News host Bill O’Reilly. Auntie Maxine, as she’s affectionately called, has once again given the Internets life with her “reclaiming my time” quip getting flipped into a hilarious set of memes.Waters spoke during a House Financial Services Committee hearing last Thursday (July 27) when she pointed a line of questioning towards Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin. When Mnuchin attempted to gloss over the California politician’s pointed question about the receipt of a memo, she used the “reclaiming my time” phrase to interrupt as she’s allowed to do under congressional rules.The phrase has become something of a mantra and a moment for those in social media and beyond. We’ve posted the best we could find below and on the following pages. There’s even a gospel song remix of the phrase that’s picking up steam.RECLAIM......

#AffirmativeAction: Twitter Reacts To DOJ’s Plans To Sue Over College Admission Policy

#AffirmativeAction: Twitter Reacts To DOJ’s Plans To Sue Over College Admission Policy
Affirmative action, a set of policies that came into view under the presidency of John F. Kennedy, in recent times has come under attack by opponents of the practice who call it a form of reverse racism. While the related policies were enacted to provide a fair opportunity to all, the Justice Department is gathering itself to launch a lawsuit based on how colleges admit students due to race.The New York Times obtained a document showing that Justice Department officials are shifting office resources to take aim at universities over their affirmative action policy in order to determine if they withheld white students from enjoying the same admission opportunity.The Times writes:The document, an internal announcement to the civil rights division, seeks current lawyers interested in working for a new project on “investigations and possible litigation related to intentional race-based discrimination in college and university admissions.”The announcement suggests that the project will be run out of......

The tension is there, but it also sounds like something you'd want to have playing as you took an insane drive through the city. It's a beat void of lyrics but somehow DJ R-Sin has ma...
