T.I. Returns To Top-Notch Form On ‘Paperwork’

October 22nd, 2014 2:20pm EDT
T.I. - Paperwork
Could anyone possibly doubt ‘the King’ – aka T.I. – on his latest studio album, Paperwork? Total poppycock – the biggest load of BS ever, right? Well not totally. The Atlanta MC’s last couple of albums has fallen short of the glory of his best. Sure, 2012 album Heavy Is The Hand had more goods than the previous, questionable No Mercy (“Trap Back Jumpin’” was enough to seal the deal there), but the top-echelon status of KING (2006) and Paper Trail (2008) were still missing. Paperwork, hence, returns T.I. to top-notch form.

T.I. gets “things poppin’” from the jump, literally reclaimin...

If you’re going to catch a murder case, make it a legendary one.

Toys R Us Pulls 'Breaking Bad' Figures From Stores

October 22nd, 2014 11:25am EDT
Breaking Bad
Toys R Us has ceased selling action figures of characters from AMC's hit series "Breaking Bad" after a Florida woman started a petition on website Change.org asking the company to remove them.

Susan Schrivjer says she was "shocked and appalled" that the store -- which promotes itself as a place "where a kid can be a kid" -- would carry such figures -- ones that include accessories such as guns and a batch of crystal meth.

The figures are aimed at adult collectors and are displayed in an area of the stores designated for the over 16 crowd, but Schrivjer's argument is over the drugs.
