Colin Kaepernick still does not have a job in the NFL. However, this week, the former 49ers quarterback did receive support from two of the most accomplished Hip Hop stars on the planet.

 

After Jay-Z wore a Kaepernick jersey during his SNL performance on Saturday, Kendrick Lamar explained at the Forbes’ Under 30 Summit how the QB’s silent protest against racial injustice and his $1 million charity pledge will impact future citizens.

 

“They think he’s gonna give up, but he wants to stand for something. Simple as that,” said Lamar. “You don’t look at the moment, whether it’s gonna work or not. No, you look at what the next generation is gonna receive from it.”

 

K. Dot’s “Forbidden Fruit” collaborator J. Cole has also been an outspoken ally of Kaepernick. The Roc Nation rapper called for a boycott of the NFL and its corporate sponsors until Kap is signed by a team.

Bobby Brown has lost his bid to stop a new biopic about his late daughter from hitting TV screens.

The “Bobbi Kristina”TV movie will air in America as planned this weekend after a judge shot down Brown’s efforts to halt the project over concerns about the way he is depicted in the film.

“Today, the court rejected a motion for a preliminary injunction filed by Bobby Brown and the Estate for Bobbi Kristina Brown that sought to enjoin the network’s airing of the original movie, ‘Bobbi Kristina,’” a statement from TV One bosses to The Blast reads.

“We are pleased with the court’s ruling and look forward to sharing this poignant look at the life of Bobbi Kristina Brown with our audience on Sunday on TV One.”

Brown sued the producers and TV One executives claiming the movie was full of lies.

The producers countered by insisting the events in the film followed descriptions from Brown’s autobiography, “Every Little Step.”

Meanwhile, Vivica A. Fox, who plays Bobbi Kristina’s aunt Pat Houston in the TV movie, insists she wouldn’t have been a part of the project if it was in any way defamatory, because she owes it to her late friend Whitney Houston – Bobbi Kristina’s mom – to be honest, and true.

She tells U.S. TV host Steve Harvey, “That (Whitney) was my girl and I love her and I miss her… When we decided to do The Bobbi Kristina Story we did this story with absolute love and respect. That was my friend. I would never ever be involved with anything to defame the legacy of one of our true queens.”

Rapper Fat Joe has been left stunned by the generosity and support of New Yorkers as he battles to help Puerto Ricans left stranded by Hurricane Maria.

The “Lean Back” hitmaker, who has been a big part of the celebrity recovery effort, has been filling planes with supplies ever since the Category 5 storm ravaged the island last month.

Appearing on CNN on Wednesday morning (October 4), Joe said, “We set out a goal with Jay-Z… to fill up one plane with 200,000 pounds (of supplies), and actually we filled up five planes, and we gotta fill up another five more. “We’re at two million pounds that the city of New York has collected.”

The rap star felt compelled to help when he heard relatives were “stranded” without power after the storm.

 

“As U.S. citizens, Puerto Rico has paid their part,” he added. “I have two little cousins that’s in the army right now, willing to give their life for this country. And the fact that it took so long to get any help out there, that’s what I mean.

“So we had to mobilize and power ourselves to collect canned foods and waters and women’s hygiene and toothpaste to give back to our own community, and that we did.”

Fat Joe will join Jay-Z, DJ Khaled, Jennifer Lopez, Cardi B and others for the TIDAL X concert on October 17.

All proceeds will benefit natural disaster relief.

Lil Kim Has A Message For Her Haters!

The Queen Bee, Lil Kim, recently decided to put her haters in check while also posting a precious video of her daughter learning how to ride a bike.

Earlier this year, it had been reported that Lil Kim was on the way to losing her New Jersey mansion home to foreclosure.

 

Apparently the rapper stopped fighting her bank and the lawsuit that it had against her.

It had been reported that HSBC Bank sued Lil Kim in 2010 after claiming that she stopped paying her almost $10k a month mortgage on her Alpine, NJ home.

The bank reportedly had made a deal with Kim back in 2002, but there were claims that she stopped paying the mortgage in 2009.

 

Rumor had it that Kim’s mansion would even be put up for sale at the Sheriff’s sale, stating that the rapper owed over $1 million.

“My baby is so adorable she had me laughing trying to learn how to ride a bike 😹😻🚲 And by the way this is at my house in Alpine, believe half of what you see and none of what you hear,. 🙄” posted Kim.

Well Kim is letting her haters know that she still has her home. According to fans, either the reports of foreclosure may have been false, or she came up with dem coins! Fans said those court documents don’t lie, well unless they are fabricated.

Either way, we are excited that Kim still has her home!

Because they are girls

Girls at primary school lin Mogadishu, Somalia

Girls gather in a yard at a primary school in Mogadishu, Somalia – a country where only 36% of girls go to school. The Go To School Initiative was launched last year across Somalia to change that. Girls make up over half of children out of primary education across the world and only 30% of all girls are enrolled in secondary school. In many countries, due to poverty, security or cultural factors, male children will be educated while their female siblings will not. According to UNESCO it will take until 2089 for the poorest girls to finish primary school if we continue at the current rate.

Because they live in war zones

Displaced children in the town of Mingkaman, South Sudan. Hundreds of thousands of children have been displaced in the country since violence erupted late last year. The long-term effects of growing up in a conflict zone are devastating and UNICEF estimates that 48.5 million children worldwide are missing school because of wars and conflicts. Nearly half of the Syrian school population are not attending classes and approximately 290 schools have been destroyed or damaged in recent fighting in Ukraine.

Because they have disabilities

A child with disabilities is taught at a primary school in Bangladesh. Around 150 million children in the world live with a disability – 80% of them are in developing countries and nine out of 10 of these children do not attend school. The barriers range from the practical issues of transportation – many children have to walk to school – to the education policy of countries not supporting children with disabilities.

Because their countries are poor

Girls working hard at a free, charity-run school in Adonkia, Sierra Leone. Some of the poorest countries in the world struggle to finance an education system for all their children. But evidence shows that if we invest more in education, poverty is reduced at a faster rate, there are long-term health benefits and greater gender equality.

Because of child marriage

These girls are from Nigeria, where 10.5 million children are out of school. More than 60% of them are girls in the north of the country and child marriage is a major cause of them dropping out. Boys can be affected but most victims of child marriage are girls. It is estimated that 15 million girls are married before they turn 18. After their wedding they leave the education system and, armed with few educational skills, they and their families are more likely to live in poverty.

Because of natural disasters

Children make their way earlier this month through the ruins of levelled homes in Tacloban City – the area worst affected by Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines a year ago. Unforeseen events such as earthquakes, floods and disease can derail education for millions. In Liberia and Sierra Leone right now, primary and secondary schools will remain closed until at least the end of the year because of the Ebola outbreak, affecting more than 3.5 million children.

Because of too few teachers

In order to achieve the United Nations Millennium Development Goal 2 of universal primary education by the end of 2015, 5.2 million teachers need to be recruited. It is the lack of qualified teachers that leaves one  in five children who attend primary school in sub-Saharan Africa unable to read or write by the time they leave.

Because they’re a child labourer

A child worker pans for gold at a mine in the Democratic Republic of Congo. By mid-afternoon, most children around the world are watching the clock and waiting for the home-time bell to ring. But there are more than 168 million child labourers – 11% of all children in the world – who are working instead of learning. More than half of them work in farming and almost a third in the service sector.

Because of poor sanitation

school toilets

In many parts of the world it’s not as easy as raising your hand and asking to go to the toilet. Many girls – particularly adolescents who are menstruating – don’t go to school because of a lack of privacy, unavailability of sanitary disposal facilities and water shortages. They are also worried about sexual advances from boys in mixed toilets. The charity Water Aid reported that just 45% of schools in the least developed and low-income countries had adequate sanitation facilities. A school sanitation programme in Bangladesh saw an 11% rise in girls’ enrollment.

Because there is no school

In some parts of the world, there just aren’t any schools. Many children in the developing world are taught outdoors when the weather permits. And many schools don’t even have desks or sufficient equipment. In sub-Saharan Africa more than 95 million schoolchildren don’t have a desk and worldwide the figure is estimated at over 400 million.
