Troy Ave with the tough questions!
Thanks to past SPIN contributor Noz, it's come to our attention that Troy Ave has a patently offensive obsession with a hypothetical situation in which one must choose between a gay son or a mentally disabled one (and sometimes a "whore daughter" or "crack head" for the sake of variation).
After the jump is a screencap of umpteen retweets of said hypothetical, some of which seem to have since been deleted.
This means T.I. has to pop a cap in Floyd Mayweather's ass, or his entire career is invalidated.

Radio stations play those Iggy Azalea songs so often because they've been forced to by the Illuminati.
As explained in the Washington post the other day:
It’s harder than ever these days for a new singer to break into the music industry. But things just got a little easier for a lucky few: Those who land a coveted spot in the iHeartRadio “On the Verge” program run by Clear Channel, which has the largest reach of any radio outlet in the country.
While companies frequently invent ways to spotlight rising stars (MTV resurrected “Total Request Live” just to plug Ariana Grande’s new album), Clear Channel has made a particularly striking move, taking advantage of its massive audience to promote new singers. When an artist’s song is named “On the Verge,” all of the company’s radio stations are required to play that song at least 150 times. (via)

I was on the fence about whether I'd see this forthcoming NWA movie, Straight Outta Compton, but I might have to check it out just for the extras.
