Tyga Says Drake Should Have Been Included On Billboard’s Top 10 Rappers List

Despite his previous war of word with Drake, Tyga still salutes the “6 God’s” mark on the game.

Despite his previous war of words with Drake, Tyga still salutes the “6 God’s” mark on the game.

In a recent interview with Power 106 Los Angeles, Tyga offered his thoughts on Billboard’s controversial “10 Greatest Rappers of All Time” list. Questioning the inclusion of certain younger rappers and not others, T-Raww commented that the list seems like it would be relevant “if this came out in like, 2005.” And in a higher-road turn of events, he gave props to a certain Toronto-based rapper, along with J. Cole.

"I just feel like this is a lot of older people. This would be, like, the greatest rappers of all time if this came out, like, you know, 2005," he said. "But now it's like, you know, you gotta give Drake his credit, you gotta give J. Cole his credit, you know what I mean?"

Power 106 also got the opinion of Rick Ross on Billboard’s list. While the MMG boss did not fret about not being included, he took offense to the exclusion of Tupac. Highlighting the storied MC’s lasting effects on the hood, Ross named The Notorious B.I.G. as the only rapper in ‘Pac’s league.

“I’m not even trippin’, because I’m still here, and I still got time to put in work. To me, what bothered me is when I see people like Tupac Shakur not on the list,” he said. “When Tupac passed away, I remember seeing people cry. Homeboys that’s in the streets, these dudes are merciless, and he touched their lives in so many ways. I have yet to see that from anybody else. B.I.G. is the only person that I would hold near Tupac’s name. After that, there’s a space bar.”

Police Conducted Welfare Check On Wendy Williams Over Alleged Poisoning

Police reportedly conducted a wellness check on Wendy Williams at her New Jersey home earlier this year after an anonymous caller claimed the TV personality's husband, Kevin Winter was poisoning her, People reports.

The incident reportedly occurred during Williams' television hiatus in Jan. 2019. According to the police report obtained by People, police arrived at Williams' residence shortly after the call was made. Hunter reportedly answered the door, claiming his wife was recovering from an illness.

Authorities noted that Hunter was "hesitant" to let the police inside the house but eventually did. There, they found Williams in bed with a "blanket covering her from neck to toe." Williams told the cops she was recovering from a broken shoulder.

Williams reportedly "became tearful" when they asked if there was any truth to the poisoning allegation, but she ultimately denied that any wrongdoing was taking place. Police said Hunter "then responded saying something to the effect of there had never been any calls to his house regarding domestic violence."

While the couple might not have received calls to the house, there have been rumors of domestic abuse. Many assumed that was one of many reasons why Williams filed for divorce against Hunter earlier this month. Even so, the Williams maintained that she was leaving on good terms.

"I am going through a time of self-reflection and am trying to right some wrongs,” he said a recent episode of her self-titled show. "No matter what the outcome is or what the future holds, we are still The Hunter Family and I will continue to work with and fully support my wife in this business and through any and all obstacles she may face living her new life of sobriety, while I also work on mine."
