Michael Rapaport Walks Back Meek Mill "Trash" Comments

Michael Rapaport clearly doesn't want the smoke with Meek Mill because the comedian has seemingly taken back the "trash" comments he made about the "Going Bad" artist while speaking to Sway Calloway on his radio show.

Meek Mill, great story. Great look. Trash rapper. Sorry

— MichaelRapaport (@MichaelRapaport) February 18, 2019

On Tuesday (Feb. 19), Rapaport further explained the comments that created beef between himself and the Philly rapper.

"I should not have used that word," the 48-year-old said, reiterating past comments about Mill's career. "He's absolutely not a trash rapper...It was wrong and it wasn't the right word. He's not a trash rapper, I can't say it. I wish I could take that word back. I'm harsh with my hip-hop opinions and it's the wrong word. It's not valid, it's not true, it's not reasonable. It was a stupid word to use."

Rapaport went on to defend the other comments he made on Twitter about Mill reminding listeners that he noticed the "Dreams and Nightmares" rapper's evolution in hip-hop and his importance to the community.

Previously, Rapaport offered his opinions about Meek Mill, calling his lack of response to Drake during their infamous beef "wack" and insinuating that he had no skill.

Slick Woods Celebrates Mom's Release from Prison

After the birth of her son Saphir in September of 2018, and making headlines after walking Rihanna's Savage x Fenty A/W Show during New York Fashion Week while in labor, Slick Woods has more reasons to celebrate now that her mother has been released from prison after 17 years.

"Cried a lot," the 5'10 model wrote on her Instagram post featuring her mother. "Me n' mom, fresh out after 17 years in prison."

Cried a lot 😳 Me n mom, fresh out after 17 years of prison 😴

A post shared by @ slickwoods on Feb 18, 2019 at 6:45pm PST

Since the age of four Woods was raised by her grandmother between Los Angeles and Minneapolis, after her mother was sentenced to prison for manslaughter. Unfortunately, Woods life at the age of seven shifted bumpier after her grandmother divorced her husband and the two found themselves spending time in cars and motels. The unofficial face of Fenty eventually became homeless and was on track to what many felt was the same path as her formerly incarcerated mother.

"I was in a place where I didn't believe in anything, so I was susceptible to evil energy," Woods said in an interview with E.S. Magazine in 2018. "I'm so easily turned. It's not something I'm proud of," she continued. "And when everyone in the world is telling you that you're going to be just like your mother, and then you're behind bars..."

Thankfully for Woods, after a stint in jail of two to three months at the age of 18, she was able to choose a different path for herself, and a year later she modeled for Kanye West in Yeezy, allowing her to one day provide for her mother once she was released from prison.

"Being a gang member, everyone expected her to not be the best mum," Woods said in an interview with Elle Magazine back in 2018. "But my mum was very hands-on with me as a child. My mummy read to me in the womb," she said. "And she's proud because she knows that everybody expected me to be exactly what she was. She went to prison when she was 19. I became a model at 19. And I can take care of my mother when she gets out."

Lil Xan Says He's Never Felt "More Happy" About Being A Father

Lil Xan is going to be a father.

The rapper shared the news with his Xanarchy fan base on Sunday (Feb. 17) with an Instagram post featuring himself and girlfriend Annie Smith. "I wanted to wait but I just can’t leave my fans in the dark, it’s official I'm going to be a father," the rapper wrote, captioning a photo of the couple.

The 22-year-old vowed fans would be included in this journey, inviting supporters to the impending gender reveal and promising to keep them updated as the pregnancy progresses forward.

"I love you guys so much and hope you stay along for this crazy journey and I’vee never felt more happy in my life all of you are invited to the gender reveal party I promise!" he said.

In the midst of the baby news, Xan also let it slip his sophomore album, Be Safe and some new projects with YouTube are on the way. Based on the excitement that oozed from his Instagram post, the "Betrayed" rapper is more than excited for this next passage of his life.

Things have been looking up for the rapper since entering rehab late last year. Xan was previously in a relationship with singer Noah Cyrus, the younger sister of Miley Cyrus. After that relationship came to an end, Xan started dating Smith.

He also announced this month that he will be apart of Nicki Minaj's European leg of her world tour. Kicking off Feb. 21, the rapper will be on the road with Nicki and Juice WRLD until March when the European portion comes to an end in Switzerland.
