–In a recent interview with Complex, Memphis rapper Key Glock opened up for the first time since the passing of his cousin, rapper Young Dolph

Key Glock, born Markeyvius LaShun Cathey, says he doesn’t necessarily feel any better or worse since learning of his cousin’s murder, but that he is “content.”

He reveals that he was “at home, laying down” the moment he learned of the tragic news, and says that he isn’t sure there’s anything that can be done or said to help make him get past it. 

Young Dolph, whose given name is Adolph Robert Thornton Jr., who also was from Memphis, was gunned down outside of a local cookie shop in November of last year. His death came as a shock to many, since he’d been known as a community leader, often giving back to the neighborhood that raised him. 

–Rapper T.I. has ventured from music into comedy, and the rapper’s journey is starting off to be a shaky one. 

He appeared in front of a packed audience in Brooklyn on Saturday, only to be booed multiple times throughout his set.

TIP was one of a few acts performing as part of the “April Fools Comedy Jam,” along with comedians  Nick CannonBruce BruceJacob Williams and more. After being booed by the large crowd, T.I. called on DJ Envy to play a song and thanked the audience for allowing him practice his new craft. 

He shared a clip of the humbling moment on Instagram, saying, “Embracing every part of the process…Enjoying every step of the journey. We don’t fold we FIGHT‼️ Fall or fly til the bitter end. New York I Love You & Thank You for one of my favorite moments in my comedic career.”
