says African-Americans have a lot to be happy about as the nation celebrates DJ Paul Day … because being black is in right now. Martin Luther King Jr.
We asked the Three 6 Mafia rapper how he felt about the state of race relations heading into the holiday — and he was totally optimistic … probably more so than most people would be.
DJP, who’s from Memphis — the city where Dr. King was assassinated — called 2018 a great year for black people, and he named some milestones to back up his claim.
Bottom line for Paul, this year’s a big W for Dr. King.
As for the “I Have a Dream” speech — Paul says we’re almost there, and
will be the ultimate barometer of when racism is dead. Puzzled? Just watch his take. Drake
says DJ Paul will continue being a musical legend despite what happens with the fallout from Lifetime’s docuseries — even if the guy gets charged and convicted. R. Kelly
We got the Three 6 Mafia rapper Sunday at LAX, where he agreed with
that R. Kelly should be allowed to French Montana … despite allegations of sexual misconduct and abuse. enjoy his legacy
Paul takes it one step further, saying R. Kelly’s personal life is separate from his music. He says Robert Kelly is totally distinguishable from R. Kelly.
The MC seems to be well aware of what Kelly has been
, but even so … he insists R. Kelly’s music will live on forever no matter what comes from all this. accused of
Many others beg to differ. The #MuteRKelly movement is catching fire, and
and Celine Dion have already pulled Lady Gaga with R. Kelly from their collabs . streaming services
Here’s a sight that’ll make
VERY happy — KSI took an absolute beating from a real deal boxing star on his podcast … and the video looks painful as hell!! Logan Paul
— a 17-0 rising boxing star — turned the social media megastar into his own human punching bag on the Ryan Garcia on Monday … as part of the Body Shot Challenge. “Impaulsive” podcast
If you can’t figure it out … the Body Shot Challenge is when someone tries to punch you as many times as possible (usually wearing some sort of padding).
Paul volunteered to be Garcia’s guinea pig … but the dude was clearly shook.
“I am f*cked. I am SO f*cked,” Paul says before taking 20 straight punches to the gut and falling backward.
BTW, Garcia’s known to be a heavy hitter — he’s knocked all but 3 of his opponents. But, Logan takes the hits like a champ, though … and even takes one WITHOUT the padding!!
KSI, take notes for the rematch …
. if it ever happens
says Logan Paul is pulling some shady crap when it comes to their rematch — saying the YouTube star is breaking their contract by refusing to fight in February. KSI
Remember, the two squared off back in August but fought to
in a crazy 6-round slugfest at Manchester Arena in the U.K. a draw
The two had signed a contract requiring a rematch — but the two sides can’t seem to agree on a date.
On Wednesday, KSI posted a video pointing the finger at Logan’s camp — saying Team Paul was supposed to take the lead with planning since it’s supposed to happen in the U.S. … but he’s failing.
KSI claims Logan wants the fight to go down on the West Coast — but says it doesn’t make sense because time zone issues would make it difficult for U.K. fans to watch the fight live.
KSI is demanding an East Coast location and says he wants the fight pushed to November so they can properly train and promote the event.
But, when we saw Logan at Warwick in Hollywood on Wednesday night … he told a different story.
“He already broke the contract. It was supposed to happen in February. He already broke that sh*t.”
Logan continued … “He needs time to prepare. I’m okay. I tried to do it in December but he wouldn’t do it.”
Both guys clearly want to fight — but they need to figure out a date and venue stat.
says Logan Paul needs to “get his head out of his ass” and sign him to a UFC fight already — because it’s easy money for everyone involved. Dana White
Remember, Paul fought YouTube star
in a boxing match earlier this year — and got real praise from real UFC stars including KSI and UFC color commentator Tyron Woodley . Joe Rogan
Paul had said he wants a UFC fight next, but White
saying he’d get hurt if he got in the Octagon with a real MMA fighter. shot him down
But, Paul says that’s a bunch of crap — telling TMZ Sports he’s
he can hold his own in a fight … and would dedicate himself to training if the two sides worked out a deal. already proven
“If I get the chance to fight in the UFC, that’s my life,” Paul says.
“Dana, what’s good? The people want it man!”
Of course, Paul’s opponent would be a huge factor — Logan says he understands he’s not ready for a shot with a killer like
… but he Khabib to fight WOULD be down . Conor McGregor
“I would be honored for Conor to rip my head off.”
Stay tuned …
hates everything about the wrestling story out of New Jersey, where a white referee forced a black high school wrestler to cut his dreadlocks before his match … and says that ref should be out of a job for good. Logan Paul
We asked the YouTube star for his thoughts on the incident as he leaving The Cheesecake Factory in Beverly Hills Friday, and he summed it up pretty good, saying … “That’s f***ed!”
Paul was a stud wrestler himself back in H.S., and tells us he was never asked to cut his hair, so he thinks it’s ridiculous
Andrew Johnson was put in that position … and feels badly for him.
As we reported … NJ state athletic officials are
, investigating the ref Alan Maloney, and he will not be working any matches while they do so. Maloney had previously been disciplined for making a racist comment in 2016, and obviously many believe was racially motivated. what he did to Johnson
Logan’s clearly one of them, but he’s got a positive message for Johnson — don’t let this one bad dude bring you down.
