Trump Attempts To Be A Cool Kid By Quoting DJ Khaled During Iowa Rally

No. 45 should know this was Obama's anthem. 

We're sure DJ Khaled won't be grateful for this shameless plug. President Donald Trump, who is facing binders full of accusations for possible collusion with Russian aides, decided to find the good in his presidency by quoting Khaled's 2010 anthem, "All I Do Is Win."

The quote was heard during Trump's speech in Iowa Wednesday evening (June 21) as he bragged about hate from critics. “We are making such incredible progress. We are making progress like nobody can believe,” Trump said. “These people [the media] are being driven crazy. They have a phony witch hunt going against me and you know what: all we do is win, win, win.”

Except there aren't too many wins around. Trump's administration has faced criticism for not revealing details of their reformed healthcare bill as well as their handling of their reaction to the Manchester bombing. Khaled hasn't commented on the plug, but was to the moon when the song was used throughout the Obama presidency.

Originally used as Obama's entrance music during the 2015 White House Correspondents' Dinner, the song found new life thanks for the former commander-in-chief. Khaled was invited to the event the following year where he was able to have "cloth talk" with him.

Khaled has spoken against Trump's polices in the past. During his interview with NME, the producer shared his thoughts on the Muslim ban. “When someone tries to do ignorant stuff, you have to come together and show love," he said. "That’s what I loved about the world, everyone came together and wasn’t with that. I’m not with that. We all came together, held hands and said ‘No, that’s not right’. Every color, every nationality came together to show love. That’s what’s so beautiful about love. Look at the power of love. There’s right and there’s wrong and love is always right. Love is always going to win."

On the bright side, Khaled has finally dropped his album Grateful, executively produced by his six-month-old son, Ashad. Listen to it here.

Forever 21 Faces Backlash Over White Model Wearing 'Wakanda Forever' Holiday Sweater

It's Ugly Christmas Sweater Season which means all of the corntastic sweaters with your favorite artists and cartoons will appear on shelves. One in particular was quickly removed from Forever 21's website after they featured a white model rocking a Black Panther-themed sweater with the popular saying, "Wakanda Forever."

The debauchery started on Tuesday (Dec. 18) when the retailer's Twitter account shared a photo of the colonizer model in the sweater along with annoying paw print emojis. The sweater, priced at $34.90 was a bit too bright to begin with, but consumers were quickly thrown off at the entire presentation.

It also seems like the model is their go-to guy as he's displayed all over the site. While there was a perfectly able-bodied black male model also on the site, he was reduced to wearing a knockoff of knockoff sweaters that went on sale.

The image might've been taken from the website, but the internet never forgets. See the reactions below.

Screenshots are forever. @Forever21 .

Black Eyed Peas And Nas Release Animated Music Video For "BACK 2 HIPHOP"

On Monday (Dec. 17), the Black Eyed Peas released their music video for the '90s- throwback- influenced record "BACK 2 HIPHOP" featuring Nas, off their latest album Masters of the Sun Vol. 1.

The cinematic-like, five-minute visual features each member of the 'Peas with their own scene, where  they spit bar after bar. The colorful video is part-animated and part live-action, and incorporates inspiration from of the golden age of hip-hop as Ancient Egypt meets the Sci-Fi genre.

All three members wear red and black through the first part of the video, while Nas appears as the Great Sphinx of Giza, reminiscent of the look fans may recall from the cover of his album I Am. A young woman lip-syncs the song's hook, which samples Soul II Soul's 1989 classic hit "Back to Life (However Do You Want Me)."

While Pasha Shapiro directed the video, will.i.am reportedly came up with the concept. The hip-hop group was ecstatic to be able to work with the legendary Queens rapper, revealing, "It was 'iLLMatic,' such an honor to rock with NAS. He is such a huge inspiration to our crew!"

Viral Stars Daddy Long Neck And Wide Neck Release Single Accurately Titled "Neckst Up"

These days, it pays to have a viral moment. Charles Dion McDowell, known as wide neck after several of his mugshots (and neck jokes) went viral, has teamed up with another unique fellow to make some kind of music together.

On Sunday (Dec. 16), Wide Neck along with Daddy Long Neck, a social media personality with more 1.4 million followers on Instagram, released a music video for the comedy rap song "Neckst Up."

In a nervous soft relaxed tone, McDowell raps, "Shawty lick me up call me up neeeckst Shawty wanna f**k call me up neeeckst / Shawty suck me up call me up neeeckst / Shawty make it clap call me up neckst."

In the video, Long Neck and Wide Neck stroll through the mall wearing t-shirts that read "All Necks Matter," while taking pictures with fans and having an attractive lady entertain them while sitting down on the bench. The leading lady in the video even goes as far as licking the two internet stars with her long tongue.

Since the release of the video, "Neckst Up" has reached over a million views on YouTube. After McDowell went viral, he connected with Daddy Long Neck, whom he shares a similar abnormal body condition.

Check out the video above.
