Experience True Delight Watching This ‘Jeopardy’ Player Think Jack White Is Eminem

Jeopardy! contestant wonderfully mistook Jack White for Eminem on Thursday night. Posed with the clue “A recent vinyl resurgence has been aided by this musician, who built a pressing plant in his Detroit hometown,” alongside a photo of White, a contestant, Julie offered her guess: Eminem.

While White and Em are Detroit natives, they couldn't look any more different. In the photo that host Alex Trebek included, White was wearing a fedora, with an almost miniscule goatee and mustache. Fellow contestant Rebecca swooped in quickly, and with the correct answer.

White's been active lately: his new Detroit-based record plant, Third Man Pressing, opened last February, helping to bolster the rebirth of vinyl and inject vitality into his hometown, which has endured financial hardships in the past. He's also announced the release of his third solo album, Boarding House Reach, which follows his 2014 solo effort Lazaretto. While the album doesn't yet have a release date, he's dropped two new songs, “Connected By Love” and “Respect Commander.”

Eminem, of course, released his most recent album, Revivalat the end of last year.

Did Jay Rock Take Shots at Big Sean on “King’s Dead”?

Jay Rock's star-studded single “King's Dead” features labelmate Kendrick Lamar, Future, and James Blake, along with solid production from Mike Will Made-It and Teddy Walton. That alone should get people talking, but it also sounds like the Watts representative has bars for a certain rapper: Big Sean. Though the suspected references are subtle, the theory isn’t much of a reach when you consider Sean’s ongoing feud with Kendrick.

Let’s take a look at some of the lyrics.

At the beginning of his verse, Jay uses the term “lil bitch,” which is a regular Sean ad-lib and one that Kendrick used on “The Heart Part 4.” (That song was also suspected of being a Sean diss track).

And it's like that, lil bitch
MVP, I get no sleep
No, I don't like that, lil bitch
Bust that open, I want that ocean
Yeah that bite back, lil bitch
Do it bite back, lil bitch?
Need two life jackets, lil bitch

Jay then goes on to rap: “I ain't gon’ hold you, I ain't gon’ press you, never control you/I ain't gon’ front you, keep it 100, I don't know you.” The use of the word “control” could be a reference to Sean’s 2013 song “Control” featuring Kendrick and Jay Electronica. The No I.D.-produced record seemingly sparked the beef between the rappers, as K-Dot rapped:

And them niggas should know what time it is
And that goes for Jermaine Cole, Big K.R.I.T., Wale
Pusha T, Meek Millz, ASAP Rocky, Drake
Big Sean, Jay Electron', Tyler, Mac Miller
I got love for you all, but I'm tryna murder you niggas

Though Sean insisted he approved Kendrick’s verse, “Control” was ultimately left off his sophomore album, Hall of Fame. Which brings us to exhibit C: Jay later raps, “Stutter steppin', got a Hall of Fame in all my posters.” Interesting.

And then we have these lines: “My bitch been ready, my clique's been ready/My shit's been ready, my check's been ready.” Though it may be a stretch, the use of the word “clique” could be alluding to Sean’s feature on the Cruel Summer track “Clique,” with Kanye West and Jay Z.  

So, was Jay actually taking subtle jabs at Sean? You be the judge. “King’s Dead” is now available to stream on SoundCloud. The track is the lead single off Jay's upcoming studio album, and will appear on the Black Panther soundtrack.

New Yorkers Weigh In On Their Favorite Rap Beefs of 2017

How do you end an incredible year for rap music? By talking about beef.

Rap beefs in 2017 ran the gamut from hilarity to curiosity. Remy Ma came out of nowhere with “ShETHER,” challenging Nicki Minaj and her status in the game. Young Dolph and Yo Gotti, two Memphis heavyweights, have moved past their beef and thankfully so; it escalated to Dolph getting shot earlier this year. And for East Coast rap heads, the idea of Cam’ron and Mase exchanging diss tracks in 2017 is a dream match-up come true.

More recently, there have been tensions brewing between former friends XXXTentacion and Ski Mask the Slump God. Azealia Banks is always out here doing the most on social media and reigniting beefs. Then there’s Drake and Meek Mill, but the 6 God decided to officially end their feud in a freestyle over Jay-Z’s “Family Feud.” Just when you think the year will start off calm and friendly, rappers always seem to have something to settle.

So, which one was your favorite? We asked New Yorkers to tell us theirs and you’ll be surprised to hear some of their answers.

Yo Gotti Associate Charged With Attempted Murder in Young Dolph Shooting Case

43-year-old Corey McClendon has been arrested in the shooting of Young Dolph, police said on Wednesday. McClendon, who was charged with suspicion of attempted murder, is an associate of Dolph's longtime rival Yo Gotti. While there were reports on Tuesday that Gotti was a person of interest in the case, police have since denied that. Two more suspects remain at large.

Despite that denial, Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck told the press that Dolph's shooting was likely the result of a feud. 

“[He was] targeted because of who he is and some kind of beef that’s ongoing,” Beck said. “I think this was something he brought with him from across the United States.”

While current reports have Dolph in critical but stable condition after surgery, false rumors circulated Wednesday evening that the rapper died. A now-deleted tweet by rapper Hitman Holla was one of the things that sparked the speculation.

The rumors were quickly put to rest by Dolph's team.
