Kodak Black Responds to T.I. Diss Track: “You Should’ve Made One of Your Fa**ot A** Sons Write a Rap”

Kodak Black has gone way too far with this T.I. beef. Now he’s coming for the rapper’s sons and his wife TinyDuring an Instagram Live Monday (Apr. 15), Kodak reacted to a snippet of a song T.I. previewed over the weekend in which he seemingly addresses his recent back-and-forth with Kodak. In the song, T.I. raps: “I’m conditioned to see the vision, you / I don’t care if you eight or under twenty-two / All that back and forth, what you trying to get into? / I said what I said and I meant it to.”...

10 Crowd-Pleasing Plants To Gift For Mom's Day

We agree that placing an annual bouquet -order for Mom's Day is easy. But just because it's tough to beat the convenience of delivered-to-her-doorstep blooms at the click of a button, doesn't mean it's the best gifting option available. This year we're recommending that the flower-fatigued gifters (and giftees) of the world shake things up on May 12 by gifting a top-selling plant instead — because while stem-cut blossoms wither, potted-plants survive and thrive.On top of a lengthier gift-lifesp...

Betty Carter: Music Never Stops

After singing with Lionel Hampton in the late 1940s, vocalist Betty Carter had her first hit with Hampton's Red Top in 1952. Teamed with vocalist King Pleasure, their vocalese duet put words to the solo melodies of tenor saxophonist Gene Ammons and trumpeter Gail Brockman on their 1947 version of Red Top. Between 1956 and 1964, Carter recorded six studio albums and then took a break to raise a family. By the time she returned at the end of the decade, she was in less demand. Her unusual way of ...

Finally, A Skin Tint That Actually Covers Acne & Redness

I used to have a hard time admitting this, but I can now proudly say it: I'm picky. I won't eat a side of vegetables if it has carrots in it, the hotel photos on TripAdvisor have to look pristine before I book a vacation, and don't get me started on dating. Before meeting my boyfriend, I'd always find something wrong with every guy just two minutes into the date. So, it's no shocker that my exacting standards apply to my beauty collection, especially foundation.While I love the idea of a weight...

But what if you could avoid the whole rigamarole and breeze out of the gym without having to restyle?There are styles that can endure a long workout — and still look cute (because if you're going to walk from your Pilates class to your coffe...

This 3D-Printed Metal Guitar is Absolutely Indestructible.

A lot of moments in rock history are defined by the iconic guitar-smash… and while I personally don’t think it’s particularly nice to smash musical equipment, what if you designed a guitar that, if you look at the image immediately below, couldn’t be smashed?That’s what Sandvik decided to do. Designed to show off their advanced titanium additive printing techniques (and also their engineering prowess), they designed the world’s first guitar that can’t be smashed. Literally.

Outdoor Piano Concert Attracts Bats. The Ravel Made Them Furious!

Boris Giltburg: “Those critters just wouldn’t budge. They seemed to appear on the keyboard out of nowhere and then stayed there, lethargically, utterly unresponsive to any shooing movement I managed to produce while playing. I had a choice: to close my eyes and constantly risk my fingers landing on one, or keep my eyes open and observe a mass of insects all moving ever so slightly on the keyboard.” – The Guardian
