It’s a triumvirate of heat! Big Sean, Drake and Kanye have been high key dominating all things rap in 2015. And with Sean’s album “Dark Sky Paradise” hitting #1, he keeps the momentum alive by dropping off some visuals for the album’s standout track ,”Blessings.”

Can’t stand near a guy and get aggressively shoved by him. B1G conference rules, look it up.
Seriously thought I missed something from the first angle, like maybe DJ Newbill was retaliating for something and snuck an elbow into the chest. Nope.
Love how adamant the ref was too. Never been more sure of a call in his life.
There’s been so much fire flying around that I’m a couple days late on this, but there’s just no way some new Bronson and Chance can go unblogged. This is the first time we’ve seen this untouchable twosome together since Acid Rap’s “NaNa,” and on a Mark Ronson-produced beat nonetheless. Obviously this is huge, and Mr. Wonderful, due out March 24, is looking like one for the ages.
Fast Company – Between 2008 and 2012, Guillaume Dumas took courses at some of the best colleges in North America—Stanford, Yale, Brown, University of California Berkeley, McGill, and University of British Columbia, among others—without being enrolled as a student. He then went on to start a successful online dating business in Montreal.
For four years, the 28-year-old from Quebec lived the life of a wandering scholar, moving from one university town to the next, attending lectures and seminars, getting into heated debates with professors. Sometimes he was open about his unregistered status, but most of the time, fearing reprisal, he kept it quiet. To pay for his everyday expenses, he worked at cafes and occasionally earned money by writing papers for other students. He lived at co-ops or other cheap student housing, but at Brown, when funds got particularly low, a kind soul let him set up his sleeping bag and tent on the roof. At the end of all this, he never received a degree.
It was a wild adventure, but to Dumas, it was also a political statement, meant to send a message. “I think of it as an act of political protest,” he tells me, in his French Canadian accent. “I was angry at how university education excludes people who cannot afford it. What happened to the belief that sharing knowledge and great ideas should be free?” Attending these universities without actually graduating from any of them was also a kind of experiment to figure out what, exactly, a university degree can get you in life. Do Ivy League graduates get top jobs because of the piece of paper they leave with, or because of their connections? And if a college degree is just an expensive ticket to a job at McKinsey or J.P. Morgan, do students really even care what they are learning in the classroom?
Dumas does not regret any of it: he has learned a lot and his lack of degree has not hurt his career in any way, since he has gone on to become an entrepreneur.
First of all I’ll give this story 24 hours before it gets completely debunked. That’s what always happens with these wild internet stories, it goes viral, people dig into it and it turns out the dude snuck into like 2 colleges for 13 days and embellished the rest of it as some sort of marketing campaign for his new product. But, as of post time it’s still supposedly true so might as well roll with it for now.
Listen as much as I hate this French-Canadian freeloading sissy he obviously has some valid points. The college system is increasingly becoming a bigger and bigger mess, student loans are becoming more and more crippling, degrees and diplomas aren’t holding as much weight as they have in years past. That’s just Facts Only. The cost of attending college has hit such an extreme that it’s tough to justify.
But these aren’t like breaking revelations for anyone, certainly not something you had to spend 4 years “investigating.” Face it, you scammed your way into a free 4 year education, something us common folk spend $50K a year on, and you did it at prestigious universities, something you wouldn’t have been able to do if those places didn’t exist in the first place from other people paying for them.
Also got a kick out of the end of the story after an entire interview from the top of his soapbox.
He’s launched a successful business in Montreal called Datective, in which he helps wealthy clients navigate the worlds of online dating by creating online profiles for them and then actually impersonating those clients in early interactions with prospective partners
The dude who just preached about how exclusive and expensive the American college system is…developed an app for wealthy clients to trick women into sleeping with them. Love Mr. Social Warrior really putting all those keen observations he made and lessons he learned to try and change the system for the better and make a real difference. Ahh screw it, too much work, let’s help rich people fuck.
Former Syracuse University Student Suing The School, Claims She Was Locked In A Psych Ward For A Week After Complaining Of Flu Like Symptoms
Syracuse - A former Syracuse University student is suing the school and St. Joe’s hospital after she was allegedly locked in a psychiatric ward for a week due to flu-like symptoms. Kaitlin Taylor tells the New York Post she visited SU’s Health Services in September 2013 with a fever, phlegm, chest congestion and coughing. She was then taken to the St. Joseph’s Hospital Health Center emergency room, where she felt herself getting sicker.
Taylor told the newspaper she was taken to a psychiatrist, where she explained she was having trouble sleeping, was considering changing majors and worried she’d lose her scholarship. A doctor allegedly told her she’d be kept under observation “just for the night” to give “involuntary treatment.” According to the lawsuit, she ended up being held in the Comprehensive Psychiatric Emergency Program at St. Joe’s for six days. Papers filed in Manhattan Supreme Court claim she was unable to contact anyone outside the hospital and forced to take “dangerous” medications like Risperdal, which treats schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, and Klonopin for panic attacks.
Taylor described the scene, lining up for pills with other patients, as resembling the Jack Nicholson movie “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.” ”The more I cooperated the sooner they’d let me out, that I should take their pills and go along with whatever they told me to do,” she said a nurse told her, according to the Post. A lawyer for Taylor told the Daily Orange it is “unfathomable” that an SU student would be locked up “without justification” while seeking treatment for a sinus infection.
Taylor is suing the university, SU staff therapist Clark Pinson, and St. Joseph’s for misdiagnosing and improperly treating her, negligent and harmful use of medication and failure to get informed consent. Pinson is still currently on the university’s staff, according to the DO. An attorney for Syracuse University staff denied acting “inappropriately in any way,”NJ.com reports. St. Joseph’s declined comment. Taylor lives in Union County, New Jersey, and has since transferred to nearby Rutgers University.
I’ve got to say, it has definitely not been the best couple of months for Syracuse University. Self imposed post season bans, locking up random apparently sane girls in the psych ward for a week at a time. They’re just really not firing on all cylinders. I figure as far as mix ups go, this would be by far one of the most terrifying. There is absolutely nothing going on inside a psych ward that I want to experience first hand. Not even one of Randles parties.
At the end of the day though, I think this girl can only point the finger at herself. If they make you meet with the psychologist, just tell them everything is fine. Don’t complain to him about your million white girl problems. Save that for your boyfriend who doesn’t care. He’ll probably just pretend to listen and really ignore you, but he won’t lock you in the psych ward. So for all you girls out there, those are basically your two options: Have someone actually listen to everything you say, realize how crazy you are and lock you up, or have a guy who just nods his head and periodically says “oh wow, I’m sorry to hear that, that sucks.” Choose wisely.
The Worst Part About UGA Blowing The Kentucky Game Last Night Was Their Embarrassing Cheer Sheet Getting Leaked To The Internet

And here everyone thought Georgia was a football school.
“When Georgia hits a 3 pointer…put your hands up and yell Three!”
Watch it in action!
What were the cheers for missed free throws, not boxing out, and hitting the top of the backboard on a wide open 3 pointer during crunch time?
PS – Know who doesn’t need a cheer sheet for anything?
I always wonder what this dude is up to these days. Think he’s like an accountant or something? Can picture all his button-downs and pleated khakis caked with a thin layer of white paint and powder remnants from his Saturday afternoons watching Dawgs games.
Chelsea Handler Is Mad At A Report That She’s Showing Her Boobs Because They’re Fake So She Showed Her Boobs Some More
US – Chelsea Handler has an extra boost of confidence when it comes to freeing the nipple — the comedienne underwent a breast lift six months ago, a source reveals exclusively in the new issue of Us Weekly.
The former E! host, who recently turned the big 4-0, had the surgery done because she was “stressed about looking saggy,” an insider tells Us.
Well alright then. I’m not really sure that was the boldest response, rebutting a report about your boobs being fake and then posting a far away photo on an absolutely filthy carpet in which they also look kind of fake. But more importantly I don’t get why it’s a big deal. If I’m a famous woman with money to blow and I don’t love my rack, the first thing I’m doing is getting big perfectly crafted bolt-ons. There’s no shame in that at all. If there’s a fire in my house, I’m not going to avoid using the fire extinguisher because it’s cheating to not let the fire naturally extinguish. Science made these tools for one reason: To be used.
Frankly I’ve got a bigger problem with the whispers that Chelsea Handler doctors the hell out of these photos using positioning and sometimes Photoshop to look hotter, younger, and skinnier. Someone sent me this candid photo allegedly of Handler after I blogged her pic of her titties at Mardi Gras and it looked like a huuuuge world of hurt:
What kind of long con are we running here, Chelsea? Fake boobs, real boobs, whatever, but big time closet fattiness? MAJOR breach of etiquette.
PS Her 40th birthday cake was pretty fire regardless of the situation with Tittygate:
I'm a big girl and I'm proud of it. Scared shitless. And proud. pic.twitter.com/TU7qbg9gkv

February was a ginormous month of new music, one of the best we’ve seen in a good long while, so it’s no surprise that the Barstool Beats charts are looking like straight fire flames top to bottom in the wake of that. Zedd, Selena, Drake, Big Sean, Kanye, Adventure Club, Elephante, Makonnen, Jack U, Carnage, Passion Pit, Kendrick Lamar, just a who’s who of who’s hot in music right now.
