The last time we saw Miley Cyrus on the stage at the MTV VMAs, she was accepting the award for Video of the Year and bringing awareness to teen-aged homelessness. The time before that, the debacle above took place, well who knows what will happen the next time, when she is hosting the whole damn show.
I am not sure how, (or why) it started, but this new trend of people leaving pets and kids in the car is starting to get out of hand. It seems like every week there is a story of kids or pets dying because they were left in hot cars. Well Arizona Cardinals Cornerback Tyrann Mathieu teamed up with PETA to make a PSA video to show just how dangerous the consequences can be, although that should already be obvious.
It looks like the YMCMBeef is now being taken to the next level, the issues with Lil Wayne seemingly being replaced on the totem poll by Birdman in YMCMB by Young Thug. Well now according to reports, the YMCMB boss, Birdman and his new protege Young Thug, have been linked to Weezy’s tour bus getting shot up in Atlanta back in April.
This is the type of stuff that normally happens at Walmart, not Publix, “where shopping is a pleasure” Well that wasn’t the case at a Publix in Baldwin Park (a neighborhood in Orlando). When two men got into a brawl, which I’m assuming started when someone skipped someone else in the line.
Taylor Swift‘s 1989 Tour is in full form, and if we’ve learned anything from Taylor it’s that you never know who to expect at her concerts. Like that time T.I. showed up at one of her Atlanta shows. Well in the past week we’ve seen the U.S. Women’s Soccer Team “shake it off” with her, and even Nick Jonas showed up at a show.
Last week FSU freshman quarterback De’Andre Johnson was suspended from the team after he was accused of assaulting a woman in a Tallahassee bar. Well, it looks like Johnson likely won’t be part of the team moving forward as the video of him punching the woman hit the internet today.
A group British teenagers who aren’t even old enough to legally drive in the United States might just have invented something that just might change the world! Colored condoms that can detect Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs).
Besides this terrible commercial, I don’t think I’ve paid much attention to anything that KFC has done over the past few years. Well last week a picture that a man in California posted online went viral after he claimed that the chicken chain served him a deep fried rat.
It was only a matter of time before Rachel Dolezal was impersonated on some national platform, and there probably wasn’t anybody better to do it than Maya Rudolph, and Rudolph did exactly that on last nights episode of Late Night With Seth Meyers (with wig and all).
LMFAOOOOOO I dunno why this Rachael Dolezal thing is so fucking hilarious to me lol this is like some shit off madTV LOLOLOL

By now we all know Kendrick Lamar‘s rise to fame. He became a household name after his debut (?) album Good Kid, M.A.A.D City sold 242,000 copies in the first week of release in 2012. The album featured guest appearances from Dr. Dre, Drake, Jay Rock and Mary J. Blige (on the deluxe version) and earned high-praise from critics. K.Dot followed up Good Kid, M.A.A.D City with another critically-acclaimed hit with To Pimp a Butterfly earlier this year.
Prior to Kendrick’s mainstream success with M.A.A.D City and Butterfly, he caught the attention of hip-hop heads with successful mixtapes like Training Day, C4, Overly Dedicated and Section.80. There is even an ongoing argument about which album was truly his debut. Was it Section.80 or M.A.A.D City?
Regardless of where you stand on that debate (I say M.A.A.D City), Kendrick has also become one of the most sought-after artists to work with. He’s appeared as a guest on songs with Eminem, Drake, 50 Cent, Game, Pusha T and Schoolboy Q to name a few. With that being said, here’s a look at some of Kendrick Lamar’s best guest appearances to date (offered without comment).
10. Jay Rock feat. Kendrick Lamar – “Pay For It”
9. A$AP Rocky feat. 2 Chainz, Drake and Kendrick Lamar – “Fuckin’ Problems”
8. Meek Mill feat. Kendrick Lamar – “A1 Everything”
7. Schoolboy Q feat. Kendrick Lamar – “Collard Greens”
6. Dom Kennedy feat. Kendrick Lamar – “We Ball”
5. Imagine Dragons feat. Kendrick Lamar – “Radioactive (Remix)”
4. Pusha T feat. Kendrick Lamar – “Nosetalgia”
3. Eminem feat. Kendrick Lamar – “Love Game”
2. Schoolboy Q feat. Kendrick Lamar and Ab-Soul – “Blessed”
1. Game feat. Kendrick Lamar – “The City”
“1Train” – A$AP Rocky feat. Kendrick Lamar, Joey Bada$$, Yelawolf, Danny Brown, Action Bronson and Big K.R.I.T.
“Autumn Leaves” – Chris Brown feat. Kendrick Lamar
“Catch a Fade” – E-40 feat. Kendrick Lamar and Droop-E
“We Up” – 50 Cent feat. Kendrick Lamar
With so many options to choose from, it really is easier said than done trying to pick his 10 best guest appearances. K.Dot has remained relatively quiet in 2015, opting to focus mainly on the new album while still managing to sneak in a few appearances with Snoop Dogg and Taylor Swift.
You may feel the need to debate this top 10, but is there really a bad Kendrick Lamar verse? You can argue that just about any verse is deserving of a mention.
