Drake vs Common
The rap battle between Drake and Common has Twitter lighting up, with the ginger ale brand Canada Dry trending across Toronto this week.
Common calls the Toronto-born rapper “Canada Dry” in a remix of “Stay Schemin,’” a Rick Ross track that features Drake: “I’m taking too long with this amateur guy/You ain’t wet
nobody, n—a, you Canada Dry.” The lyrics are in response to an ongoing feud between the two rappers that began weeks ago when Common called Drake “soft” on his track “Sweet.’
The feud may go deeper than just lyrics, as Drake has gotten close with Common’s ex-girlfriend, Serena Williams, during the past year. Drake recently told Complex Magazine “I really, really love and care for Serena Williams.” In response to Common’s first attacks, Drake released the original version of “Stay Schemin’ ” that dissed Common. Here’s what may be a NSFW link for “Stay Schemin” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s6Ck6fRamnY
When Comedians Beef
Twitter beef always gets elevated when it’s between two comedians. And even though you hate to see two people beefing on twitter, you can’t help but laugh at some of the things they say. That’s exactly what happened when funnymen Mike Epps and Kevin Hart got into it on twitter. Here’s a peek at their hilarious timeline slaps.
Fur by Dre

Breastfeeding on Sesame Street
Over 4,000 People Want to Bring Breastfeeding Back to “Sesame Street” There’s an online petition going around that’s attempting to, quote, “bring breastfeeding back to
‘Sesame Street’.” According to the petition, “Sesame Street” used to “tastefully” depict breastfeeding back in the ’70s and ’80s . . . but recently, they’ve only been showing
“bottle feeding.” The petition adds, quote, “We are not asking ‘Sesame Street’ to remove bottle feeding. We are asking that both ways of feeding babies be shown as normal.
“If we normalize breastfeeding in our community . . . especially with our children . . . we can help raise a generation of breastfeeders which will support our economy, make for
healthier children, and lessen the risk of breast cancer for many nursing mamas!” They’re trying to get 5,000 signatures. As of late last night, they had over 4,000.
You can find the petition at ThePetitionSite.com. Here’s a clip of Sesame street when they used to show breastfeeding back in the day. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7-L-Fg7lWgQ

LUCKY! Napoleon Dynamite Cartoon Set to Debut
Cult geek film Napoleon Dynamite is heading to television screens in cartoon form, and the star of the original movie could not be happier. The 2004 independent film directed by Jared Hess and starring Jon Heder became a hit and received praise for bringing something fresh to the teen comedy genre. It featured Napoleon, a socially awkward high school outcast in a small town, as he becomes something of a winner while retaining his geekiness. The original cast will voice their animated characters in the TV show that debuts on January 15. They are joined by new characters and guest stars including Amy Poehler, Sam Rockwell and Jemaine Clement. Heder, 34, told Reuters he thinks fans of the movie will embrace the show on the small screen. “I think true fans will like it, hopefully. It’s animated but it’s trying to capture the feeling and the integrity of the movie,” he said. Here’s a promo of the upcoming show (GOSH!!!) 🙂http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ua17k1tidRE
