Charlamagne Tha God Calls Lauryn Hill "Entitled" In His Donkey of The Day Rant

Charlamagne isn't with the whole "aligning my energy with the time" song and dance either.

After Lauryn Hill penned an open letter to fans informing them the reason for her lateness was so she could "align her energy with the time," many aligned their opinions with the Internet and issued their two cents about the hip-hop icon constantly being tardy for the party. While a day late, Charlamagne Tha God dedicated Tuesday's (May 10) "Donkey of The Day" to Ms. Hill not for being on time, but her prerogative towards time.

"She's not getting donkey for showing up late. She's getting donkey for this entitled excuse she used for showing up late," the 35 year old said. Charlamagne proceeded to read the first few lines from Hill's lengthy Facebook post, and simply concluded, Ms. Hill was full of prunes.

"That is the most entitled, bougie, wordy excuse for being late I have ever heard in my life. This is the excuse of someone with entitlement mentality. Like I told you all yesterday, service and gratitude will fuel your relationships, entitlement and expectations will poison them. Lauryn showing up late and then giving excuses like your energy was not aligned with the time is just lazy."

The MTV 2 Uncommon Sense host, who needed Angela Yee to help him properly pronounce spontaneity, said there's only one person we should all wait for, and unfortunately it isn't Lauryn.

"All the work you did with the Fugees, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, the Unplugged albums were great. But knock it off already.  Only person worth waiting on is Jesus, and the only reason we're waiting on him is because he didn't give us a scheduled date to come back. He just said he would return."

Oh Charlamagne. Whatever will we do with you? Check out the full clip below.

Lizzo And Missy Elliott Team Up For Hypnotic Single "Tempo"

Lizzo has a new banger. The Detroit artist teamed up with Missy Elliott for her new track, "Tempo" on Wednesday (Mar. 20), and it's bound to shake the table.

The song's theme falls in line with Lizzo's past work; it's a body positive single, paying tribute to thick and curvy girls. After a powerful electric guitar intro, the song erupts into a head-knocking beat. "Slow songs, they for skinny h*es / Can't move all of this here to one of those (Hey) / I'm a thick b***h, I need tempo," she raps on the chorus.

Misdemeanor comes in on the third verse with bad b***h energy, spits controlled bars. "All the thick girls down on the flrrr (On the floor) / Ice on my neck like brrr (Like brrr) / I'm big-boned with nice curves," she raps.

Amid the song's release, Lizzo sat down with Apple Music's Beats 1 to talk about how she and Missy collaborated on the track. "She sent me a memoji of herself singing her verse, that's how I got the verse," she explained. "I got a memoji of Missy like smiling and then she just started rapping, and I was like, 'OMG what the hell' so I had to hook it up to my speaker system. But it wasn't even the actual track, it was like her going along in her studio."

Lizzo is gearing up for the release of her new project, Cuz I Love You, which is slated to drop on Apr. 19. Listen to "Tempo" in the video above.

Las Vegas Cop Arrested For Demeaning Recordings Of Suspects

A Las Vegas police officer faces charges of misconduct after making racist and homophobic comments and sharing humiliating videos of suspects with friends. Some of the videos include a recording of male genitalia and images of officer Rachel Sorkow commanding a mentally ill person to dance.

According to KVVU, Sorkow was charged with multiple crimes in the past two years, including researching arrest records and license plates for her friends' partners. She is also accused of using the N-word.

Police officers found recordings of four people who were described as "in her control as a police officer." One video showed a man with a tear in his pants, which after kicking a police car resulted in the exposure of his genitalia. Sorkow instructed the man to keep kicking the police car while recording the video that she later distributed to her friends.

There are also reports that the officer responded to a call for a mentally ill man wearing two dresses with his hair in pigtails. In the video, Sorkow can be heard saying, "I just want to see you Dougie and twerk and then we're good." He starts dancing and she tells him, "Yea! Get it again, one more time."

Other videos revealed the law enforcement official placing gummy bears into the mouth of a handcuffed person while making baby airplane feeding noises.

An investigation into Sorkow began in Sept. 2018, when information about her came out of another case involving a person on parole.

The 29-year-old worked in the Community Policing Division in Metro's Northeast Area Command but was "relieved of duty" with pay on Dec. 4, 2018, while the investigation was ongoing.
