Westside Gunn’s ‘Who Made The Sunshine’ Tracklist Includes Black Thought, Busta Rhymes, And More

Published

In an ideal world, Westside Gunn‘s Shady Records debut Who Made The Sunshine would have dropped last month. The Griselda rapper announced the album back in July in an Instagram post that revealed its artwork, which was curated by his daughter WS Pootie. Unfortunately, due to the untimely death of Griselda’s DJ Shay, Westside, as well as the entire group, pushed back the release of all of their future projects. But fans won’t have to wait long, as Westside Gunn revealed the new release is this Friday, October 2.

Who Made The Sunshine will serve as Westside’s third album of the year, following April’s Pray For Paris and July’s Flygod Is an Awesome God II. The album includes many a great guest, among them the entire Griselda squad: Conway The Machine, Benny The Butcher, Armani Caesar, and Boldy Jame. Others from outside the label will also be present, including Slick Rick, Black Thought, Busta Rhymes, Jadakiss, Smoke DZA, A.A Rashid, Stove God Cooks, Flee Lord, Estee Nack, ElCaminio, and Keisha Plum.

The announcement comes after Westside joined RMR on the video for “Welfare” and Armani Caesar on the track “Mac 10s For Everybody,” off her Griselda debut, The Liz.

Check out the artwork and tracklist for Who Made The Sunshine below.

Girl forgets mic is on during Zoom class, talks about how ‘sexy’ her lecturer is

Published

Between online class interruptions and staged kidnappings, as if Zoom classes couldn’t get any more awkward, people are now exposing themselves by forgetting to mute their mics. A recent TikTok video shows one student suffering complete embarrassment after she unknowingly made comments about how “sexy” her guest lecturer was for the entire class to hear.

The video shows the awkward Zoom moment first-hand, capturing the lecturer’s stunned reaction to the comments and the student’s own shock after realizing her mic was broadcasting to everyone in the session.

“Sorry for exploiting you my sexy guest lecturer man, respectfully dropping out now,” wrote the student in the video’s caption. She explained in text added over the video that while her laptop’s mic was muted, her conference call’s audio was “dialed in” through her iPad instead.

“This man is so sexy, are you fucking kidding me,” she can be heard saying as she zooms in on the lecturer’s face. “I will listen to anything you say.” Immediately after making the statement, she gasps, realizing her mistake. The lecturer’s eyes scatter around the screen as his jaw slightly drops before his expression goes blank.

To make matters worse, according to a later comment left by the original poster, the lecturer was a guest for her ethics class. “I hope she figured out that she’s on… but we are recording, so let’s, uh, go ahead,” her professor responds, quickly rebounding from the incident.

Users responded to the student by joking about the second-hand embarrassment they got from watching the video. The video has now been viewed over 2.4 million times on the platform.

“No choice but to move to another country and change your name,” one commenter wrote. “It’s the fact that zoom focuses on your face when you speak, RIP,” wrote another user. Other users responded on the brighter side, with one joking: “And that’s how your father and I met.” And another user said, “Rip but that probably made his year.”

A later video was posted by the student, updating followers on the aftermath of the incident.

She says that an email was addressed to the entire class reminding students of an administrative and social responsibility to “keep the content among ourselves.” Additionally, she adds that the lecturer apparently saw the video going viral online and made his own TikTok jokingly responding to it.

“So I’ve actually entered my next karmic life stage, and I’m a dog,” she says. “I’ve left the past behind me.”

25 Times The BBC Show ‘Changing Rooms’ Thought They Nailed Their Room Makeovers, But Now The Designs Look Dreadful

Published

There are many ways to renew your room. A trip to Ikea or a call to your mom are the most popular options. Other times, a new furry carpet will do the job. Rarely will you need some assistance from the outside world, and in that case, dad and Home Depot may be the only option.

But you never, ever entrust your room’s makeover to your neighbor. Below, we’ve got a fair amount of evidence to back up this claim. If you’ve ever heard of the BBC show Changing Rooms from the late ‘90s and early ‘00s, and its American variation Trading Spaces, you’d know what it’s all about.

‘Cause swapping houses to redesign the room of the person next-door sounds like a disaster waiting to happen. From covering the floor in strips of silver tape to casually hanging birch trees from the ceiling, these are just a few examples of letting your neighbor think outside the box. And your room is the one getting the hit.
