Ice Cube should have just said no comment.

According to Ice Cube, Diddy’s current situation is a product of him being a “target,” not his behavior.

The iconic rapper, movie producer, actor, and founder of the BIG3 basketball league recently appeared on the PBD Podcast. 

During the interview, host Patrick Bet-David asked Ice Cube if he has ever worked with Diddy throughout his long music career. The Friday director revealed to Bet-David that he worked with the embattled music mogul on his 1998 album, War & Peace Volume 1 (The War Disc), and said his experience with was “cool.”

Ice Cube’s Head*ssery Continues

Bet-David followed up by asking Cube if he was “surprised” about the Diddler’s current predicament. He is currently a defendant in several sexual assault lawsuits as a defendant.

We also saw him settle with his ex, Cassie Ventura, before a video of him assaulting her hit X, formerly Twitter timelines.

The “Check Yo Self” rapper is no stranger to saying dumb things, said, “How could you be surprised by anything that happens in hip-hop?”

He continued, “Hip-hop is the wild west. You gonna have the good, you gonna have the bad, you gonna have the ugly.”

The interview veered into conspiratorial land when Bet-David asked Cube if Diddy was a target, and Cube agreed.

“I believe he’s being targeted,” Ice Cube said. “I believe somebody has the power to pull the trigger to make this stuff, this domino effect, happen.”

Bruh.

He would also add that he is not knowledgeable about Diddy’s situation, telling Bet-David, “I don’t know enough to even be able to be specific on any of this stuff. This is all just speculation. I just know he was cool up until a point, and this stuff started happening.”

We find that hard to believe. After the developments, Diddy’s name was on every news website and TV channel.

Recent reporting says a federal grand jury is prepping a potential sex trafficking and sexual assault case against Diddy. The Bad Boy Records founder has not been arrested and recently did some white water rafting, much to the dismay of people who want to see him held accountable for his alleged actions.

That wasn’t the only Tekken 8 news. The popular fighting video game also celebrated the return of iconic character and villain Heihachi Mishima, Kazuya’s father and Jin’s grandfather.

Heihachi’s return to the game was met with excitement and hilarity because he always finds a way to return, even after meeting his demise in previous games.

On Sunday, July 21, President Joe Biden announced that he would not be seeking a second term.. While supporters were still catching their breath, he announced that he was endorsing his Vice President Kamala Harris for the gig, which was quickly met with widespread enthusiasm.

Taking to social media, President Biden said it was time for him to finish his term, and step aside. “While it has been my intention to seek reelection, I believe it is in the best interest of my party and the country for me to stand down and to focus solely on fulfilling my duties as President for the remainder of my term,” Biden wrote in a classy letter he posted on X, formerly known as Twitter. “I will speak to the Nation later this week in more detail about my decision.”

About an hour later, Biden made it clear that as far as next up, he was strictly team Kamala Harris. “Today I want to offer my full support and endorsement for Kamala to be the nominee of our party this year. Democrats — it’s time to come together and beat Trump. Let’s do this,” wrote Biden on X.

Social media quickly went up for Joe Biden, saluting for a job well done in the last three and half years. Also targeted was how mainstream media so quickly turned on Biden after a bad debate, chaos in the Democratic party and generally how horrible Trump is at everything, yet he gets a pass.

But don’t take our word for it, see some of the more zealous reactions in the gallery.

Indiana Fever v Las Vegas Aces

A few weeks ago a random white girl named Hailey Welch had social media on fire when she described how to pleasure a man when she “spit on that thang” with a “hauk tuah!” And with all the memes that one moment spawned, Plies has decided to take some of that momentum and create a whole song around that sexual sentiment.

In his new visuals for “Hawk Tuah,” Plies shows just how he likes his women to give him that “hawk tuah!” by getting his “mic checked” in a public bathroom before getting some more of the same treatment in the comfort of his own home. The man didn’t waste any time banking off that hawk tuah hype.

Elsewhere Fat Trel and Millyz make a D.C. to Boston connection happen and in their clip for “Airplane Mode,” the two artists take to the rooftops of the buildings of Bean Town before hopping on a boat with some thick and exotic young women.

Master Chief’s time at Paramount+ has come to an end, but Xbox still has hope he will continue the fight on another streaming platform.

After only two seasons, the polarizing Halo television series has been canceled on Paramount+.

In a statement to THR, Paramount+ and the game’s current developer, 343 Industries, said about the show’s cancellation:

“We are extremely proud of this ambitious series and would like to thank our partners at Xbox, 343 Industries and Amblin Television, along with showrunner and executive producer David Wiener, his fellow executive producers, the entire cast led by Pablo Schreiber as Master Chief and the amazing crew for all their outstanding work.”

“We deeply appreciate the millions of fans who propelled the Halo series to be a global success and we remain committed to broadening the Halo universe in different ways in the future,” added 343 Industries. “We are grateful to Amblin and Paramount for their partnership in bringing our expansive sci-fi universe to viewers around the world.”

Per IGN’s reporting, both Xbox and 343 Industries haven’t given up hope on the video game adaptation. They will make a valiant attempt to shop the series around in hopes of continuing to tell Master Chief’s story.

Halo’s first season premiered in March 2022 and was met with mixed reviews. Major complaints stemmed for Pablo Schreiber’s take on the beloved Spartan soldier, and him constantly taking his helmet off, and being out of his iconic armor, something we don’t see in the games at all.

Halo TV Was Met With Controversy From The Start

HHW Gaming’s Bernard “Beanz” Smalls spoke with Schreiber, who said it was a “huge honor and responsibility” to play Master Chief in the series but also understood why some had reservations.

Yeah, I don’t think it’s backlash or controversy. I always knew that was going to be a part of it because when you take a first-person shooter video game and make it into a television show. Just by the construct of what you’re doing, there’s 50 million people out there who have bought the game, who have played the game as the Master Chief.

So whether they even know that that’s why they don’t want the helmet taken off or not, that’s what’s happening. That’s ownership that you have over the character because you’ve played the game for so long as this character, so everybody in their own way feels like they’re the chief, right? So I always knew that there was going people were going to get upset about taking the helmet off because you’re changing the course of the franchise. The good news is, I think when people see the show, they’ll realize why it was done.

It’s for a long-form television format. You really need to see the face of your character, the protagonist. We have multiple seasons of storytelling that we want to embark on. The whole purpose of doing this show is to humanize John and to learn about the Master Chief in a way that you’ve never gotten to learn about in the games.

Video Game X Reacts To The News of Halo’s Cancellation

As expected, those who have been trashing the show since its first premiere were not surprised at the news, even after season 2 made a valiant effort to address fan criticisms.

“Halo was cancelled after two seasons because its creators did not respect the source material or Halo fans and because Master Chief refused to wear his damn helmet. How hard is it to make a good Halo show? Just stick to what made the games great! Quit trying to make it your own thing. It’s not. Adapt these things faithfully, like Fallout or Arcane or The Last Of Us!,” one user on X, formerley Twitter wrote. 

“I’m not surprised to see the Halo TV series cancelled, it got better in S2 but failed to capture what made Halo great Characters we’ve known for 20 years did things that didn’t make sense, and the fall of Reach essentially happens off camera and with Chief out of his armor If it comes back, do a full reboot and start over with a team that understands Halo,” Kinda Funny and Gametag Radio’s Parris Lilly wrote. 

Beanz’s Thoughts On Halo TV

While most people were down on this show and felt it failed to adhere to the video game’s script, I was a fan.

As someone who played the Halo video games, I always felt Halo’s lore was a confusing mess, especially after the events of Halo 2.

The show simplified things a bit, giving a rather dull character in Master Chief more personality and, most importantly, a face. Pablo Schreiber did a fine job in the role, and I do hope Xbox and 343 Industries can find the show a home because season 2 was very solid, and there is still more story to be told.

No, this show was not on the level of story telling that HBO’s The Last of Us or Fallout were, but it was good if you stack it up against the plethora of other mid video game adaptations.

A massive global IT outage is crippling businesses and making lives miserable.

If you’re a business that operates on Microsoft Windows-based systems, the past 48 hours have not been good for you, and your IT department is most definitely stressing out.

Banks, airports, TV stations, healthcare organizations, hotels, and other businesses were greeted by BSODs (Blue Screens of Death).

Blue Screens of Death hit the giant screens in Times Square.

What Caused The Global Disruption?

The outage hit computers running the Windows operating system and was the result of a bug in an update from cybersecurity company CrowdStrike.

In the early hours of Friday, companies in Australia with computers running Microsoft’s Windows operating system began experiencing Blue Screens of Death.

Not too long after the issue arose, there were numerous reports of disruptions from the UK, India, Germany, the Netherlands, and the US.

TV stations like Sky News were offline, and US airlines United, Delta, and American Airlines issued a “global ground stop” on all flights.

CrowdStrike says the outage wasn’t malicious and, through its CEO, issued a statement on the matter.

Per Wired:

Hours after the issues started to emerge, CrowdStrike CEO George Kurtz issued a statement about the outages, saying the company has found a “defect” in an update for Windows that it issued. “This is not a security incident or cyberattack,” Kurtz said. “The issue has been identified, isolated, and a fix has been deployed.” In the statement, Kurtz confirmed that Mac and Linux hosts are not impacted by the update and said that its customers should refer to its support portal.
