Whoo Kid Talks Dropping Haiti Anthems With Wyclef, Giving Tech N9ne Some Shine

Banks said recently that you were on “timeout,” and that he wouldn’t be doing any mixtapes with you for a minute. What’s good with that?

He’s always fucking with me on Twitter.  I’m assuming that’s because I sent a message to him about 50 saying that he used to date a midget. He got pissed off on Twitter. That’s just Twitter nonsense. We’ve been working on a mixtape. He’s done a whole bunch of songs already but we’re already too close to the drop date to drop a mixtape. We just want people to concentrate on Hunger For More 2.

So after the album you’ll probably do something?

It depends. We’re both always away. I got my 25-country birthday tour and he gets booked ridiculously off two singles. So scheduling alone is a nightmare. It’s good, we cant complain. We’re both doing good. He’s getting booked overseas more than a lot of artists I know.

Are you working with anyone else on a mixtape?

A lot of the mixtapes I’m doing now are being mixed down and in due time will come out. But I’m just leaking like one song at a time, promoting each situation. Me and Wyclef, we’re doing a mixtape. It’s going to be a lot of features. Other than that, a lot Tech N9ne and Snoop and Gucci Mane, I have nine or 10 mixtapes I’m doing at once. I always work in intervals and I just dump them all at once and then I just disappear.

Tell us about the Wyclef mixtape.

We’re working on it right now. We did like 5 or 6 joints on it. And there are some crazy featuers on there. You’re going to be surprised. It’s gonna be probably 40 percent Haiti dedication and 60 percent Wyclef Fugee returns with the Haitian killer Whoo Kid. All original production—I got Ski Beatz, Red Spyda, Cookin Soul. Shout out to Alchemist. We’re going to make it some sick shit. We’re going to do videos and all kinds of nonsense. On some Haitian general shit. Clef is yapping with a couple cats right now like T.I. and a couple other dudes, but we’re working it out.

Sounds dope. When is that dropping?

Probably before Halloween. It’s going to be crazy.

Tech N9ne’s been buzzing crazy, especially since Wayne gave him props.

He has a ridiculous fan base. And this is his first mixtape. I introduced Snoop to the mixtape phenomenon and all these other cats on the West Coast. They didn’t understand why you have to do a mixtape and give it away for free. So I had to fly there and explain to them. And I did the same thing with Tech. He’s always in the studio, doing songs over.

When’s his mixtape dropping?

Tech9 one will be out around the same time as Wyclef, before Halloween. It’s called Bad Season. So far we have E-40, Jay Rock, Too Short. I’ma have Snoop on there. We’re going to have a whole bunch of people, like, West Coast niggas. And then I’m possibly going to have Banks on there, too. It’s going to be on some sick shit.

Tomi Lahren On Cardi B's 'Dog-Walking' Threat: 'I Would Never Get Away With That'

Tomi Lahren paid a visit to Fox & Friends, where she discussed her Twitter feud with Cardi B. Last week after the "I Like It" rapper posted a video discussing the partial government shutdown, the right-wing pundit took to Twitter to write out her views on Cardi's comments.

"Looks like @iamcardib is the latest genius political mind to endorse the Democrats. HA! Keep it up, guys! #MAGA2020," she wrote, which prompted Cardi to write that she will "dog walk" her.

“I just like to point out the left’s hypocrisy because can you imagine if I would threaten to dog walk Cardi B — or anyone else for that matter — as a conservative, as a Trump supporter?” Lahren said during her appearance on the show. “I would never get away with that but they’re able to do it, and the left applauds it... you can see that there are leftists with verified accounts who are not only laughing at the fact of me being ‘dog walked’ — they’re tweeting out memes showing me in a leash and a collar with Cardi B walking me. Beyond that, they are actually saying, ‘Yeah, she would hurt you, she would beat you up — I wish we could start a GoFundMe page so we can watch your teeth get knocked out.’"

She also criticized U.S. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who wrote on Twitter that people shouldn't underestimate people from The Bronx (where she and Cardi hail from).

“Well, I’m not surprised at anything Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says, but again, I’m also impressed the way the left does the mental gymnastics to justify it,” she said. “...these are elected representatives who are endorsing and saying the same thing. So, you know, it’s really puzzling and troubling.”

Friendly reminder: after over a month, the government is still shut down.

Cardi B Will Reportedly Have Her Own Las Vegas Residency

Cardi B is reportedly getting her first Las Vegas residency. According to The Associated Press, the “Money” rapper will have a residency at the Palms Casino Resort in anticipation of the debut of its newest complex, KAOS.

“Above and Beyond, G-EAZY, Kaskade and Skrillex are among the other artists who will have exclusive residencies at the complex,” the report reads. KAOS will reportedly open in April. “KAOS is part of the Palms’ $690 million renovation that features state-of-the-art technology designed to enhance performances including a rotating 360-degree DJ booth.”

This news comes just a week after the announcement of Drake’s reported residency at the XS Nightclub at Wynn Las Vegas. The musical reportedly “inked a 12-show deal over the next two years."

Cardi B has shown no signs of slowing down. She is currently nominated for five Grammy awards, and she is set to perform at the Bonnaroo Music Festival. She also made headlines recently for her thoughts about the current partial government shutdown, clapping back at detractors like Tomi Lahren.

"You’re so blinded with racism that you don’t even realize the decisions the president you root for is destroying the country you claim to love so much," she wrote on Twitter with a statement aimed at the political pundit.

Illinois Man Awarded $1.25 Million After Cops Tackled Him For Stealing His Own Car

A former Northwestern University doctoral student was awarded $1.25 million after police tackled the then 25-year old assuming he was trying to steal a car that was actually his own.

The Associated Press reports Evanston City Manager Wally Bobkiewicz confirmed the settlement amount had been reached Wednesday. (Jan. 23) Crosby was an engineering major in 2015 when the incident occurred.

Crosby’s attorney Timothy Touhy said his client was attempting to repair something with his car when a white woman watching called local police to report what she thought was a robbery.

The unidentified woman then followed Crosby in his car as he left his apartment and headed to a science building on Northwestern's campus, giving police his location.

Crosby reportedly exited his vehicle with his hands up but was immediately tackled by law enforcement when he didn't obey orders to get on the ground. Cops later determined Crosby was the owner of the vehicle but charged him with resisting arrest.

A spokesman for the Evanston police said the use of force was justified at the time because officers assumed a theft was in progress. Crosby was the victim of knee strikes and open-handed strikes.

A judge threw out the charges.

“It’s his hope that as a result of this case, that all of us begin a discussion on implicit bias and begin to recognize it and begin to discuss it between yourselves and your friends,” said Steven Yonover, who represented Crosby in the case.
