Rich the Kid released the second part of his “The World Is Yours” series on March 22. With such an inspiring title to his series, you would assume his album would present a memorable spiel of life and uplift his fans, but don’t be fooled, the album is far from that. With “Fall Threw” being his only song on...

Every celebrity has their own fans: casual fans, superfans and people called “stans.” We all love an actor, band, singer, movie, show or author to a reasonable extent. For example, I love Arab food, especially Falafel. It tastes good, and I would eat it whenever. Despite my love for it, I wo...

However, I unfortunately don’t have all the time in the world, so the amount of podcasts I have been able to immerse myself in is pretty limited. My favorite part about a podcast is that yo...

There is stupid, extremely stupid and then there is "YouTube pranks which are obviously fake or dangerous" stupid. I cannot stress this enough: I hate pranks or these so-called challenge videos. They’re not funny, and they’re not entertaining. Why does YouTube even allow people to do such things...
