Jeremy Lin Refused Entry For "Game 2" After Milwaukee Officials Couldn't ID Him 

Jeremy Lin has faced all kinds of adversity throughout his NBA career - whether in the guise of a racial issue or simply in situations where he feels slighted by his peers, J Lin has been made to feel unappreciated by his would-be supporters. Had injuries not taken their toll, and his body held up to the sheer physicality of the pro game, Lin may have seen himself moonlight for longer than two weeks at a time. At the end of the day, Lin is a good basketball player, with strong fundamentals. Nobody's consciously disputing that save for the one official who refused him entry at the Fiserv Forum.

Upon witnessing him enter the premises for Game 2, the unnamed arena official stops Lin in his tracks, demanding that he produce a boarding pass before he goes any further. Lin, who normally enters these situations in the company of his teammates or a member of staff, didn't think to bring any "proof of employment" on his person, before making the trip.

"After game two in Milwaukee, I was trying to get to the team bus and one of the dudes in the Milwaukee Arena just screams at me,” Lin told Bill Michaels of Sports Talk Network. "He’s like, ‘Where do you think you’re going?!’ And I’m like, ‘Uh, I’m trying to get to the team bus.’ He’s like, ‘What? Where’s your pass?’

Nevertheless, Jeremy Lin is choosing the high road in letting the incident roll off his back. Although he's only played 26 minutes in the playoffs, Linsanity is still proud to play his bit-role moving forward. Furthermore, Lin showed zero sign of bitterness when his teammates handed him the Eastern Conference Finals trophy in the locker room. Lin's going to the NBA Finals, you can't take that away from him, especially considering he's been a model teammate the whole way through.

Post Malone Says Country Fans Need To Stop Hating On Lil Nas X 

Earlier this month, Wrangler revealed their new collaboration with Lil Nas X which featured lyrics from "Old Town Road." Of course, Lil Nas X faced even more backlash from the country community who continued to claim he was "appropriating" their culture. They claimed that he shouldn't be the spokesperson of the brand and tried to make a case that Lil Nas X isn't even a country artist. However, Post Malone feels like they all need to relax.

Post Malone is no stranger to facing hate in his career. He's managed to prosper, despite all of the hate he's received and he had some thoughts on the Lil Nas X scenario going on right now. He defended the "Old Town Road" artist, claiming he has the right to make whatever kind of music he wants to do. Posty also pointed out the clear hypocrisy in the criticism towards Lil Nas X since country music has been co-opting sounds from hip-hop music for a long time. He also mentioned that Wrangler's are really just jeans and if you're that upset about it, you should get over it.

At the end of the day, Lil Nas X is killing the game. "Old Town Road" is still at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 for its seventh consecutive week and will likely maintain its position for an eighth week.

Jordyn Woods Off To London After Kylie Jenner Said She "F*cked Up" 

Jordyn Woods was recently spotted in London with her mother Elizabeth, according to reports by TMZ. As such, this is Woods first appearance since the emotional preview of the new Keeping Up With The Kardashians episode which weighed in on the Tristan Thomspon cheating scandal. Herein, Kylie Jenner is heard saying that Jordyn Woods really "f*cked up" and captured Khloe Kardashian in the middle of what looked like a complete emotional breakdown. Despite the drama-filled episode airing very soon, Jordyn Woods seems unfazed by it all. The trip to London is timely considering Woods was reportedly allowed into Kylie's home to remove her belongings from the guest house.

Indeed, Jordyn's appearance with her mom can serve as confirmation that the move has happened. And so considering the previous report stated Woods was "moving back to her mom's house" because the cheating ordeal has "been a difficult time." Relatedly, a source close to the tumultuous affair shared with People magazine, "When they first started hearing on Monday that Tristan made out with Jordyn, no one really believed it. That Tristan would be inappropriate, yes everyone knows that he can’t behave, but that Jordyn would make out with him, it first seemed like a made up rumor."

YG, G-Eazy & Kamaiyah Go Ballistic On "Do Not Disturb"  

Most of you will agree, YG's 4REAL 4REAL is a bop - no more apparent than in the bottom half of the proceedings where the melodically-inclined Kamaiyah puts up a "Do Not Disturb" for all to see. YG's allegiance to Kamaiyah is time-tested, without so much as a need for backtracking, but we'll do it anyway.

Although Kamaiyah really rose to Internet prominence off the strength of her debut mixtape  A Good Night in the Ghetto, it was on YG's Still Brazy album that she forced herself into the conversation, and subsequently as the opening act on his Fuck Donald Trump Tour. G-Eazy's "how'd you meet" story was altogether different. Upon learning of Eazy's longtime interest, YG made plans for him to assume Nipsey's spot on the second iteration of "FDT."

After relocating to LA by way of the Oakland, California, G-Eazy propelled himself to main event status. On "Do Not Disturb," he once again reminds us all that he's come to LA, fully-vetted by E-40, with whom credits with facilitating the spike in his asking price. The "Sick Wid It" medallion that was bestowed to him ceremoniously, sits atop his resume until something bigger and better comes-a-knocking. Hit us with your thoughts down below.

Quotable Lyrics:

E-40 gave me the Sick Wid It medallion
You need a verse, I text you $150,000
Four ice Italian, that's six hundred stallions
Fuckin' Jamisha to YG's first album, yee.

- G-Eazy

50 Cent Didn't Snitch On Jimmy Henchman According To The Feds 

TMZ has learned that a "report of investigation" believed to be circulated by 50 Cent is completely bunk. For the longest time, 50 Cent was said to have circulated a document that painted he and  Jimmy Henchman as informants on account of a) providing the intel b) incriminating his longtime foe in the process.

For the sake of clarity, NONE OF THIS IS FACTUAL, but rather a rumor started by someone within the dept. - with a curious bone to pick. A report published in November of 2016 seemed to imply that 50 Cent had offered his help to law enforcement in helping them clear up the particulars of Henchman's then-impending retrial. A reactionary post 50 Cent had published on Instagram is likely what contributed to this rousing suspicion, which has since been debunked.

Regardless of such, the Feds have since informed TMZ that 50 Cent didn't speak with them at any given point in time, with regards to Henchman's suspected role in the murder plot ending in the death of G-Unit associate Lodi Mack. The narrative went a little something like this: many people thought Henchman had reason to seek retribution for the humiliation of his son, who'd been accosted by Tony Yayo and Mack sometime in 2007. Henchman has since been convicted of back-to-back life sentences for his culpability in the killing.

Blu & Exile Brew A Revolution With "Power To The People" 

The dynamic and classic hip hop duo Blu & Exile resurfaced after a lengthy musical hiatus. Precisely, the Hip Hop pair dropped their most recent project, True & Livin'. The project gave off major old school Hip Hop vibes and so naturally, surely yielding feelings of nostalgia out of its listeners. Though short, the EP still contains a succinct composition of tracks full of witty lyrical play and powerful messages. Of the few tracks, we find the politically-inclined song, "Power to the People" which features a slew of talented artists. Namely, Fashawn, Aloe Blacc, Blame One, King, Johaz, and Choosey. Evidently, the song weighs in on the current political disarray of the world and offers up the power of choice to the masses. Indeed, this one is for the revolutionaries and bleeds out a strong message which vouches for the empowerment of the underprivileged and marginalized. 

Moreover, with almost two decades of knowing one another, Blu & Exile continue to impress us with the creative output which stems from their well-combined cooperation. 

 

Wendy's Employee Takes A Bath In Kitchen Sink: Watch 

So... this happened. A Wendy's location in Florida is being investigated after one of their employees took a video of himself taking a bath in the industrial-sized kitchen sink. As reported by the New York Post, the video shows a shirtless young man climbing into the sink without shoes or socks before slowly bringing himself to lay down in the water. His co-workers egg him on but he didn't seem to be pressured into this at all -- this looks like something he was totally down to do. The viral video has been circulating online this week as potential customers react to the nastiness happening before their eyes.

In the clip, female voices are heard in the background urging the man to "take a bath" and "get in there" before one woman encouraged him to "wash his armpits." Wendy's has since issued a statement by confirming that the man no longer works for them and used "poor judgment." "We are taking this incident seriously and it is obviously totally unacceptable," said Mike Johnson, the marketing director for the corporation that owns the restaurant. "This was a prank by a person who no longer works at this restaurant, and who clearly did not use good judgment. We are taking this opportunity to reinforce our very strict quality procedures with our restaurant team."

The location has reportedly passed a health inspection since the video was taken.
