Megyn Kelly Fired From NBC For Blackface Comments; Makes Off WIth $30 Million

Megyn Kelly has officially been let go from NBC, but not without the rest of her bag.

This month, the network fired the controversial host following her comments on blackface last year. Two years ago, she inked a $69 million deal with NBC, and upon her termination, has been paid the remainder of her contract, amounting to $30 million. It was in October that her Megyn Kelly Today show was canceled after a debate about wearing blackface on Halloween.

“But what is racist?

Problem Delivers “I’m Cool” Visuals

At the end of last year, Problem dropped off his S2 (Separation 2) album for our listening pleasure. On it, he went for 16 tracks, recruiting the likes of Casanova, Bad Lucc, and Guapdad 4000 to make the point. Now, in the spirit of keeping the music front of mind, the Compton emcee now returns with a set of visuals to accompany project select “I’m Cool.”

True to self, the clip is a clear-cut video that follows Problem as he takes an evening stroll around his native Los Angeles, a humble backdrop to a cut composed of boastful plays: “Mo’ life, mo’ weed/ I see you lookin’ at me but I’m out’cho league/I could tell how you move but you not my speed/Not sayin’ less about you, it’s more about me.” Continue reading
