John Legend Becomes Youngest EGOT Winner Ever

John Legend has entered elite company in entertainment with his latest feat.

Legend won an Emmy at the 2018 Creative Arts Emmy Awards in LA on Sept. 9th. The acclaimed singer won for producing Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert, which aired on NBC in April.

Thanks to his Emmy win, Legend is now the youngest EGOT winner in history. EGOT winners are those who have received Emmy, Grammy, Oscar & Tony awards.

In addition to being the youngest EGOT recipient, Legend is also the first African American man to receive the honor.

Legend posted a photo of himself with fellow EGOT winners Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice on Instagram and expressed his gratefulness for the honor.

“Before tonight, only 12 people had won an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony in competitive categories,” he wrote. “Sirs Andrew Lloyd Webber, Tim Rice and I joined that group when we won an Emmy for our production of their legendary show Jesus Christ Superstar. So happy to be part of this team. So honored they trusted me to play Jesus Christ. So amazed to be in such rarefied air. #EGOT.”

As an EGOT winner, Legend joins a group that includes entertainment legends such as Audrey Hepburn, Mel Brooks and Whoopi Goldberg.

Remy Ma Tells Joe Budden He's "Scared To Death" To Respond To Eminem

Remy Ma has criticized Joe Budden for his failure to respond on-wax to Eminem’s “Fall” diss, a track off Slim Shady’s recently released album Kamikaze.

Remy made the comments during the inaugural episode of Budden’s new REVOLT series State Of The Culture, which premiered on Monday (September 10).

“Is that because he actually dissed you and you have yet to respond yet ‘cause you mad p@**y and you’re scared to death and you know he will flame you if you even try it?” Remy asked Budden after he slammed Em’s disses.

Following a brief laugh, Budden responded, “No, Remy. I like rap where people are saying things. That’s all. Machine Gun Kelly, regardless of what you think of his actual skillset, he had a lot to say.”
Ma replied, “No one really gives a fuck about what MGK has to say. We wanna know what are you gonna say?”

While he hasn’t responded on wax, Budden did offer a scathing retort to Eminem during last week’s episode of his The Joe Budden Podcast.

“I’ve been better than you this entire fucking decade,” he said. “You have not said anything for the better part of a whole fucking decade. You have rhymed a bunch of words.”

Let's see where this goes...

Kanye West Says "Watch The Throne 2" is Coming Soon

Jay-Z & Kanye West have been embroiled in a long-standing cold war for nearly 2 years. But on September 8th ‘Ye tweeted that a sequel to the Hip Hop super duo’s 2011 Watch The Throne album is on its way.

“throne2 coming soon,” he wrote.

However, the fact ‘Ye doesn’t mention Hov’s name is suspect. The bad blood between the two started to boil in 2016 when Kanye insinuated Jay was a bad friend during a concert in Seattle.

A month later, he called out Jay and his wife BeyoncĂ© mid-rant at a Sacramento show. From there, Hov went on to diss Kanye multiple times on last year’s 4:44.

In an interview with Rap Radar last August, Hov revealed the reason behind his rift with Kanye but still referred to him as his “little brother.”

“What really hurt me is you can’t bring my kids & my wife into it,” he said. “Kanye’s my little brother. He’s talked about me a hundred times. He made a song called ‘Big Brother.’ We’ve gotten past bigger issues, but you brought my family into it. Now, that’s a problem with me. That’s a real, real problem.”

“He know it’s a problem ’cause me and him would have been talked about it. We would have been resolved our issues, but he know he crossed the line.”

Perhaps the two have reconciled or it’s possible Jay doesn’t have anything to do with a Watch The Throne sequel.

Whatever the case, Kanye is clearly up to something. We’ll just have to wait & see.
