The Swedes Don’t Want The $56 Million Jay Z Is Offering

hov.smiling

Jay Z offered $56 million for WiMP, a growing Scandinavian music streaming service similar to Spotify. The offer was foolishly rejected, with the owners completely unaware that Hov can just call the Devil and take it if it pleases (this according to my Facebook friends who believe what they hear in YouTube "documentaries" set to eerie music). From The Local SE:

A 464 million kronor bid ($56m) by rap mogul Jay Z to take over Scandinavian music streaming service Wimp – Spotify's biggest rival – has been blocked by the firm's Swedish owners.

Over 10 percent of the minority owners of Wimp's parent company Aspiro had rejected the bid, saying the ball was now in the rap star's court. The Swedish Shareholders' Association said in a statement that Jay Z would now have to amend his original offer for a 90 percent stake in the company.

"The bidder has not reacted, either by withdrawing the bid, raising the offer or lowering" the percentage sought, it said.

The minority owners – who believe Jay Z's bid undervalued the company's future potential – had yet to hear back from the platinum-selling artist on Wednesday afternoon.

Ratchet Teachers Give High School Students Cocaine & That Cot

lippert.ghirelli

Man, my high school teachers didn't even show up to class sometimes, let alone give students blow and Jason's Lyric-esque nature sex. From LAist:

Two Orange County teachers were charged on Monday with having sex with students on a camping trip, and supplying the teens with alcohol and cocaine.

The charges stem from a Dec. 27 to 29 camping trip with five teenage boys at a San Clemente Beach that Lippert organized, prosecutors said. The trip was not authorized by the school. Lippert reportedly invited her colleague Ghirelli to join her on the trip, and the two supplied the boys with alcohol and cocaine. Prosecutors said Lippert helped facilitate Ghirelli's relationship with a 17-year-old boy, which later resulted in Ghirelli allegedly having oral sex and sexual intercourse with the student during the trip.

Snoop uttered two words I'd never thought he'd say during an interview with Jhene Aiko: "My wife." On a related note, if you'd like to see pictures of Jhene Aiko, along with hood fight videos and pictures of grandbabies, add my dad on Facebook and Instagram.

Marshawn Lynch Might Be The Greatest Filmmaker Since Master P

marshawn.movie

This is the trailer for The Marshawn Lynch Story, which was apparently made by Lynch and the guys who organize his Skittles by color. You may find it funny, assuming you're like me and a fan of films by Master P/Cam'Ron/your friend whom YouTube should have never given 10 minute upload privileges. The highlight comes at the 2:40 mark. A possible whooty says "Hey little Marshawn," to which Beast Mode replies, "Get up outta here, you scrub."

Saudi Men Arrested For Dancing, Which Clerics Claim ‘Can Lead To Homosexuality’

salman

Well, apparently men can't dance with unmarried women in Saudi, so these guys decided to dance with each other. Similar to what Prodigy from Mobb Deep did when he was in prison. From AP:

The news website Ayn al-Youm reported Saturday that the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice raided a private property in the city of Buraydah, arresting the men inside for "loud music and inappropriate dancing..."

An unnamed official told the website that when members of the morality police raided the private property, they found the young men in "a comprising situation in their dance and shameful movements." The official said there was also a cake and candles to celebrate one of the men's birthdays.

No details were released about how many men were arrested or their ages. The official did, however, say that the young men's hairstyles and dress were not traditional, and urged parents to monitor this kind of behavior "because it can lead to immorality and even homosexuality."

A hashtag on Twitter quickly went viral about the arrest, with many Saudis ridiculing the raid and pointing out that the men were not caught drinking alcohol or partying with women - both crimes in Saudi Arabia.

BADBADNOTGOOD & Ghostface: ‘Sour Soul’ (The Whole Damn Album)

bad.bad.ghost

My tax return came in, the wife and I got our first post-marriage argument out the way (which ended the way all spousal arguments should end), I signed up for this new Sling TV joint that allows me to waste more of my prime years by streaming live TV through Roku, and BADBADNOTGOOD/Ghostface's new album streamed a bit early. Life is grand! Until my student loan bill comes in sometime next month.
