Charlamagne Tha God Crowns Kodak Black Donkey Of The Day

"We can't act like we are mad at Kodak for disrespecting Lauren. You're mad at Kodak for disrespecting Nipsey."

Kodak Black received many digital eye rolls and deep sighs over the weekend due to abhorrent comments made about Lauren London, prompting Power 105.1's Charlamagne Tha God to crown the Florida rapper "Donkey of The Day."

At the onset of his eight-minute diatribe, the Shook One author admitted his bewilderment as to what angers most people and the inconsistency in the outrage toward Black's troll behavior.

"I'm confused at what pisses people off nowadays because I've watched Kodak Black disrespect dark-skinned women, Young MA, so the outrage over these comments he made about Lauren London seemed a little odd to me. I understand the circumstances because of the murder of the late great Nipsey Hussle...but I just want people to be consistent in what we tolerate in our culture because we never are. There is never a set standard."

On Saturday, (April 6) Kodak Black took to Instagram Live stating he'd wait a year before trying to date Lauren London, which merited backlash and caused T.I. and The Game to respond. Charlamagne insisted the predatory comments were on brand for men like him. However, he noted Black has consistently disrespected women, but the culture is inconsistent in its defense of women.

"Kodak Black is always saying disrespectful stuff in regards to women, just like a majority of the culture is always saying disrespectful stuff to women. Now, if we are at the point where we aren't tolerating this from anyone anymore, great! I'm all for that, but this isn't about what's right it's about what's popular and there's not a more popular topic in hip hop and in the world right now then Nipsey Hussle," Charlamagne said.

Playing a recording of Tip and The Game's response, Charlamagne noted the hypocrisy in both men coming to London's defense

"We can't act like we are mad at Kodak for disrespecting Lauren. You're mad at Kodak for disrespecting Nipsey, and I understand that but where is all this outrage when women are being disrespected, period?" Charlamagne questioned.

"The OGs have to know that the youth learn from them whether directly or indirectly. The Game checked Kodak but didn't earlier this year he put out snippets of a song smashing other people's wives? Don't you think it's hypocritical talking about getting with someone's wife when you made a whole song about it? Just because you don't like Kanye or Joe Budden doesn't mean its cool for Game to smash their wives. I just want us to be consistent when it comes to what we tolerate or don't tolerate."

Charlamagne ended his rant the way he does all Donkey of The Day spiels and gave Black the biggest hee-haw. Check out the whole video below.

Kodak Black Sentenced To 12 Months In Jail For Gun Charges

Rapper Kodak Black pleaded guilty to a weapon charge after he was stopped at the Canadian border crossing near Niagara Falls last April.

According to Local10 news, the "ZeZe" rapper was arrested after he drove a Cadillac Escalade across the Lewiston-Queenston International Bridge into the United States with three other men. Police say the men had marijuana and a loaded pistol without a permit when they were detained by U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers.

The 22-year-old rapper pleaded guilty second-degree criminal possession of a weapon in Niagara County Court. On Monday (March 30), Kodak received 12 months, which will run concurrent with his 46 month federal prison sentence.

Prince’s Siblings Reportedly File Petition To Get Money From His Estate

The heirs to Prince’s fortune want his estate to pay up. According to The Blast, the music legend’s siblings, Norine, Sharon and John, filed legal documents in hopes of green lighting “payment for service and efforts provided to the Estate.”

The trio claims that while “others” have been compensated, they have yet to be paid after putting time and energy into “business matters” related to the estate, which is being run by Comerica Bank.

“As this Court is aware, the Estate has now been on-going for over three years,” the documents reportedly state. “In this time, millions have been paid to the Personal Representatives, their accountants, attorneys, and legal advisors.”

The heirs accused Comerica of making money decisions without notifying them, which the bank has denied. Last year, a Minnesota judge denied the siblings’ request to limit the bank’s power over the estate.

Prince’s brothers and sisters want a judge to force Comerica to compensate them so that they can get out of financial ruin, including paying legal bills.

The Purple One’s estate is worth an estimated $200 million (down from $300 million) since his death in 2016. Prince died without a will but a judge ruled that his estate would be split between his six half-siblings. His brother, Alfred Jackson, who was 1/6 of the estate heirs died in 2019. Last December, Prince’s sister, Tyka Nelson, sold off a chunk of her percentage of the estate to cover legal bills.
