If you've seen anything in the young days of 2017, I'm 100 percent certain that it was a headline about the latest feud between Chris Brown and Soulja Boy. I'll spare you the details, which are extensive, but it was decided yesterday that the two will settle their beef in a much publicized boxing match in March. The flyers have been printed (on Instagram) and though, personally, I'm just excited for this to end, if we're going to have to watch two celebrities pummel each other, there are definitely some people higher up on the list than these two clowns. Behold, the list of celebrity boxing matches which we would actually like to watch.
Really, this is a selfish request to see Tyga get KO'd. The two have been going at it on social media over Tyga's jailbait girlfriend, Kylie Jenner. Isn't it always about a girl? 21 Savage's quest to win Kylie's affection might give him a boost but if Tyga fights anything like he raps, we know he's weak.
If there's anything we're sure Diddy will fight for, it's Jennifer Lopez (sorry, Cassie!) and Drake's flagrant flaunting of his new "relationship" with the legendary triple threat might be enough inspire Diddy to suit up.
Yo, it really is always over a girl. OK, so, you already know that Future did Ciara really dirty and she dumped his ass and got with the very wholesome Russell Wilson, who now acts as stepdaddy to Baby Future. Future and Ciara have had a very public and ugly breakup and she's held her own pretty well. But with Russell in season for the Seahawks, I'm pretty sure he's going to be physically unstoppable against Future, who will undoubtedly sound like a busted robot as he goes down.
God, do I need to say it again? This is also over a girl. Now that T.I. and longtime wife, sidekick and partner Tiny are sadly divorcing, we think some blame will be distributed. This beef is deep though, flamed by romance but kindled by a difference in political opinions. Namely that Mayweather said "all lives matter" and T.I. read him for filth. Not for nothing but our money is still on Floyd.
More foolishness that happened in the New Year. At Ricky Harris's funeral, a family member of the late Harris jumped Snoop Dogg. That is not a fair fight at all. Snoop was very, very unbothered by the whole situation but since this guy is being dragged all over the internet, I imagine that he will want a rematch of some sort. Since he's so savage and Snoop is definitely a lover and not a fighter, our bet is on him.
Wait, you already guessed it: It's about a girl. Back when Meek and Nicki were still together, Meek took a tweet from Safaree, interpreting it to be about Nicki, too far. The two predictably started a social media war. Enough of this nonsense. They need to get in the ring.
Charlamagne tha God is also a beauty critic and said something smart about Jaheim's hairstyle, which the singer took very hard. Charlamagne made the singer his Donkey of the Day and then Jaheim basically called him a woman. Where's the eyeroll emoji? Can you see it? OK. So now that you know how stupid this fight is, Jaheim can wrap up his hair and get on some gloves.
Oops! Drake is going to have a hard time. Over the summer, Champagne Papi had some words for Funkmaster Flex and Flex had some words back. That's more or less how these things normally go. It's not over a girl, so that's surprising, but a man's pride is worth something right? Let's get this going guys!
