Chance The Rapper Discusses Fatherhood With Pharrell On Beats 1

Nothing is like the love a parent has for thir child.

Although he's only 22, Chance The Rapper has admitted he's found true love in his four-month-old daughter who was born late last year.

"I'm so much more understanding of love," he told Pharrell Williams at the latter's OTHERtone radio show on Beats 1. "I didn't know love until I had my daughter. I didn't know its bounds. Not to be corny, but you can love somebody through anything when they’re your child. Now that I understand that, it makes me work better with people. It makes me more understanding of how much dedication and love I can put into each line. There’s no throw away lines.”

Williams chimed in to offer his own personal feelings on being a father; he has a seven-year old son named Rocket.

"I'm gonna tell you, that is the best song that you will ever co-write in your life," the producer/rapper shared. "When you think the melody can't get any better, and you think the lyrical content can't get any deeper and any sicker, the bars can't be crazier, it happens all the time. God's the board, and she's writing the lyrics. And she just rewrites over and over as she gets older, it's one of the most amazing things ever. How's that feeling?"

"It's crazy, because like you said she just grows," Chance replied. "I'm inspired by her because she grows so fast. She's four months old and like at four months she's a genius already. She's just super strong and super ready."

Check out the teaser for the interview below.

Michelle Obama On Beyonce's 'Homecoming' Film: "Girl, You Have Done It Again"

Beyoncé's Coachella documentary, Homecoming: A Film by Beyoncé on Netflix has been met with praise from every corner of the earth since its April 17 release. The compliments are still rolling in and the most recent one that Queen Bey has received is from none other than former First Lady Michelle Obama.

"Girl, you have done it again," Obama said in a short clip. "Constantly raising the bar for us all, and doing it flawlessly. I'd say I'm surprised, but I know who you are. I've seen it up close and personal. Girl, you make me so proud and I love you."

Obama and Beyoncé's friendship is one that the two have discussed publicly before and one that is admired by their respective supporters. Just a day after the release of Homecoming, Mrs. Carter penned a letter dedicated to Obama for her TIME 100 profile and the superstar only had kind words to say.

"I'm honored to know such a brilliant black woman who's spoken about the sacrifice it takes to balance her passions while remaining a supportive partner and mother, and now a best-selling author with Becoming," Beyonce wrote. "She has continued to open herself up, even if it meant being criticized. She has continued to be a portrait of grace."

Make sure to watch Queen Bey's documentary on Netflix, where she made history by being the first black female headliner of Coachella.

A Philadelphia Barber Was Told He Couldn't Give Free Haircuts To The Homeless

In 2017, Brennon Jones made headlines with a thoughtful act of kindness. The Philadelphia native began giving the city's homeless people free haircuts. The loving act merited praise online, from Mayor Jim Kenney, and Philadelphia's City Hall which granted him permission to set up provisional barbershops on the street.

However, on April 14 of this year Jones, now 30, says he was approached by an officer who demanded he "shut down immediately" without any justification. Jones refused.

"I told him I wouldn’t shut down until I got more information,” Jones said. “The whole initiative is built around the homeless. I don’t just give them haircuts — I feed them, I clothe them and provide them with toiletries as well.”

A cellphone recording of the encounter has since gone viral and been viewed more than 700,000 times.

The officer eventually continued on but left Jones rattled. “I was a little fearful,” he tells PEOPLE. “At the time … I was cutting my fifth person.”

A statement from the Philadelphia police alleges residents in the area complained about the leftover hair. The cops say Jones wasn't told to shut down but to simply move “due to complaints from businesses about loose hair on the street.”

Jones doesn't buy it and insists he has someone with him to clean up the hair after he's done with his haircut.

“I feel as though that may have just been their excuse to clear their name,” the barber says. “[The officer] didn’t say they’d receive any complaints, he didn’t say there was hair blowing, he just said, ‘You have to shut down immediately.’ ”

Jones has been cutting hair for a while and reportedly works from 11 AM to sunset and can be found between 8th and Market. Despite the unsettling interaction with the cops, Jones says he won't stop.

“Issues come and go. It may be the cops one day. It may be somebody else the next day,” Jones says. “I won’t let it discourage me in any way … I’m just focused on providing a service for the less fortunate.”

G-Herbo Arrested In Atlanta On Battery Charge

According to the Atlanta Police Department, G Herbo was arrested Wednesday, (April 17.) The rapper was booked with a simple battery charge and has yet to be released. The circumstances surrounding the arrest have yet to be revealed to the public, however, an Instagram video from six days ago shows what appears to be the Chicago native being physically attacked by his ex-girlfriend Ariana Fletcher.

The video may originate from the night of Herbo and Fletcher's son's birthday party, which the two celebrated together. Videos from the celebration showed the two seemingly getting along and throwing cake in each other's faces.

This is not Herbo's first run-in with the law. In February of 2018, his limousine driver reported Herbo and a few of his friends to the police for carrying handguns. All three were arrested and charged with aggravated unlawful use of a weapon.

Herbo nor his representatives have spoken out in regards to his Wednesday arrest.

More updates to follow.
