Emma Stone has spoken out amid swirling rumors that she would make an appearance in the upcoming ‘Spiderman’ movie.

Emma Stone, 32, has responded to rumors that she could be reprising her role of Gwen Stacy in the upcoming Spiderman film. The upcoming Marvel movie, Spider-Man 3: No Way Home, is set to feature appearances from characters within the multiverse, however Emma, who appeared in the 2012 iteration of the franchise opposite Andrew Garfield, is not one of them.

“I have heard those rumors,” Emma told MTV News on May 27. “I don’t know if I’m supposed to say anything, but I’m not [involved]. I’m not. I don’t know what you’re supposed to respond as an alumnus.” Her former co-star Andrew also denied his involvement in the project, while Andrew Molina and Jamie Foxx are slated to reprise their roles as Doc Ock and Electro.

The Cruella actress, 32, who recently made her first red carpet appearance since giving birth to baby Louise Jean McCary, opened up in a May 18 interview about her childhood crush on Leonardo DiCaprio. Emma met the Titanic actor while accepting her Oscar for Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role for La La Land at the 2017 Academy Awards.

“Leonardo DiCaprio. That was what was going through my mind cause it was him,” Emma said. “And I was like, I’d seen Titanic seven and a half times in theaters. He was the love of my life. I had a picture of him in my bedroom that was signed, that I had gotten for my birthday when I was like 12 years old and I was walking to Leo and I was like, this is officially the most surreal moment of my life. I could not believe it.”

It comes two months after the A-lister welcomed her first child with her comedian husband Dave McCary, 35, on March 20. Although Emma hasn’t spoken publicly about her little bundle of joy, and insider told Us Weekly last month that the pair were doing well. “Having a baby has brought them closer in a way they never expected,” a source told the outlet, explaining that Emma “has been at home with her husband and the baby,”

‘Dad Stop Embarrassing Me’ and ‘Roswell’ star Heather Hemmens spoke EXCLUSIVELY with HL about that kiss between Stacy and Brian, season 2 hopes, and directing her first ‘Roswell’ episode!

Heather Hemmens has been a busy woman lately. Dad Stop Embarrassing Me! launched on Netflix in April 2021, and she’s been filming the third season of Roswell, New Mexico. Fans of Dad Stop Embarrassing Me! noticed the undeniable chemistry between Heather’s character, Stacy, and Brian, played by Jamie Foxx. HollywoodLife got EXCLUSIVE scoop from Heather about that kiss in episode 5 and what she hopes for them if the show were to get a second season.

“I would love to see them explore their chemistry there,” Heather told HollywoodLife. “Their connection is very sweet. They both try to keep it really professional, but I think there’s a spark there that they can’t deny. I ship them hard. I’m all for that kind of figuring out and just recognizing the fact that they have someone special in their life. Love should not be denied.”

Stacy went off to travel with her boyfriend, but her kiss with Brian in the kitchen proved that there’s definitely something more between them. Heather would love to see Stacy come back into the fold. “I think that just her return creates a lot of spark,” she continued. “I think Brian would be happy that she came back. I think she will have learned a lot about maybe what she wants from being away, and maybe Brian learns a lot from her absence as well just by missing her and thinking about maybe stepping up a little bit when she returns. So that would be ideally for me where it would go, but who knows. Maybe she comes back just as an employee and gets her job back and nothing is said about the kiss that they had.”

Heather was excited to take a crack at comedy after more dramatic roles. “It just makes for a better day at work when everybody’s laughing,” she admitted. “I find that it affects my mood as well, where I can just be free and having fun as opposed to running through a cornfield being chased by an ax murderer. That’s a throwback to season 2 of Roswell, but people will know what I’m talking about if they’ve seen the show. It’s just a really, really fun day at work when you’re doing a comedy, and it was a dream come true.”

Heather Hemmens also stars as Maria on ‘Roswell, New Mexico.’ (The CW)

Roswell, New Mexico will return for a third season on July 26, 2021. Heather will be back as Maria, and she’ll also be directing an episode this season. “I have been wanting to get behind the camera for years now,” Heather revealed. “I started directing short films about 11 years ago, and I’ve been shadowing all the directors that we’ve had on Roswell. I have been working very hard for this moment, so it was epic. I enjoyed every second of it, and I learned a lot. They gave me an amazing script to work with, so I just tried to knock it out of the park. I feel like the crew and all the producers were so supportive and teed me up to win. I was chomping at the bit. I had a lot of energy for it. I worked day and night to make sure that my vision was executed, and I’m really, really excited for everyone to see it because I think it came out great.”

As for what Heather could tease about season 3, she revealed that Maria is “going to get a new love interest. I think Maria really starts to get confident with some of her powers this season. We see her make a commitment to exploring that side of herself, and Maria starts to have a little bit more fun and worry a little less.”

Scarlett Johansson looked thoroughly annoyed during the funny skit that saw the ‘SNL’ star dump green goo over her head.

Scarlett Johansson jokingly swore at her husband Colin Jost after he dumped a bowl of green slime over her at the MTV Movie & TV Awards on May 16. The actress was in the middle of accepting her special Generation Award for a pre-taped speech when the moment happened.

Clutching her bucket of golden popcorn, the 36-year-old looked glam and poised as she thanked her fans. Just as she was sharing a “sneak peek” of her new movie, her husband walked into the shot, wearing a white T-shirt and holding a red bowl.

Wow! What an honor! The iconic Scarlett Johansson takes home the Generation Award #MTVAwards 🏆 pic.twitter.com/YKKkPaeaME

— MTV (@MTV) May 17, 2021

The actress and the Saturday Night Live star played the moment up for laughs and she pretended to be stunned, and then highly annoyed as you can see in the clip above.

“What the f***?” she asked. “MTV, you got slimed,” he said. “That’s Nickelodeon,” she clapped back, wiping away the green mess as he grabbed a towel. Eventually, after he tried to calm her down by saying that he loves her, Scarlett barked back, “Where did you even get this?”

Scarlett is the latest in a long line A-listers to be bestowed with the Generation Award at the MTV Movie & TV Awards. The mom-of-one was given the special recognition, which has previously been bestowed on an impressive galaxy of stars, including Sandra Bullock, Jamie Foxx, Will Smith and Reese Witherspoon.

Scarlett has been a fan favorite for decades. Long before she wowed movie buffs in the Marvel films, she showed off her acting chops in 1998’s The Horse Whisperer. Still in her mid-teens she held her own opposite acting legend Robert Redford.

She’s been knocking out blockbuster hits and critically acclaimed indie titles ever since. Other impressive items on her résumé include Lost In Translation and Marriage Story.

But it is as the Black Widow in films like Iron Man 2, Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame that she has won the hearts of Marvel comic fans. Scarlett’s special MTV award is well-timed as she’s due to reprise her role as the popular superhero in the character’s first standalone Black Widow film, which comes out in July.

Last year the very private actress also had plenty to celebrate after secretly wedding her longtime love, Saturday Night Live star, Colin Jost. “We’re thrilled to break the news that Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost were married over the weekend in an intimate ceremony with their immediate family and loved ones, following COVID-19 safety precautions as directed by the CDC,” a post on the Meals On Wheels Instagram page read on Oct. 29, 2000.

“Their wedding wish is to help make a difference for vulnerable older adults during this difficult time by supporting @mealsonwheelsamerica. Please consider donating to celebrate the happy couple by clicking the link in our bio.” The marriage is the third for the two-time Oscar nominee.

Katie Holmes’ Romantic History: From Tom Cruise Marriage & Jamie Foxx To Emilio Vitolo Jr.

Katie Holmes’ Romantic History: From Tom Cruise Marriage & Jamie Foxx To Emilio Vitolo Jr.


Jade Boren and Dina Sartore-Bodo

From engagements to speculations of exciting new relationships, Katie Holmes has always led an exciting dating life. Here’s a breakdown of her biggest romances!

Since the ’90s, Katie Holmes‘ romantic relationships have been a topic of fascination among the public. There was her on-set romance with Joshua Jackson while filming Dawson’s Creek, her heavily sensationalized marriage to Hollywood’s No. 1 action star, Tom Cruise, and her secretive relationship with A-list actor Jamie Foxx. And those haven’t been the only men to capture the heart of this brunette beauty, including her most recent boyfriend Emilio Vitolo Jr., 33.

Going in chronological order, we’re looking back at Katie’s biggest relationships — starting with Joshua and ending with her most current fling! Katie is never single for long, and based on the Batman Begins star’s impressive IMDb portfolio and good looks, we can see why.

Joshua Jackson
Everett Collection/Columbia TriStar

There was real love behind the chemistry you saw between one of television’s most iconic couples, Joey (Katie) and Pacey (Joshua)! The co-stars eventually began dating after filming the earlier episodes of Dawson’s Creek together (the show premiered in Jan. 1998), but the relationship didn’t last for long.

While she didn’t name names, it was heavily implied that Katie was talking about Joshua when she told Rolling Stone in 1998, “I’m just going to say that I met somebody last year. I fell in love, I had my first love, and it was something so incredible and indescribable that I will treasure it always…And that I feel so fortunate because he’s now one of my best friends. It’s weird, it’s almost like a Dawson-and-Joey type thing now.”

Their on-set chemistry even came as a surprise to the show’s creator, Kevin Williamson, after he witnessed it while filming the iconic science project episode in Season 1. “Joey and Pacey were paired to do the science project and they had to go and collect samples. They got wet and had to take their clothes off in the truck and there was that very uncomfortable moment where you could just see how she peeked at him and he peeked at her. They were so nervous with each other. They had instant chemistry,” Kevin recalled in a 2018 interview with The Hollywood Reporter.

Joshua has since married British model Jodie Turner-Smith. After tying the knot in Dec. 2019, they welcomed a baby girl together in April of 2020.

Katie and Chris were an early aughts dream team! While there’s no exact date to pinpoint the beginning of this relationship, Katie became engaged to the American Pie star in 2003 and broke up with him in 2005, after a “five year relationship,” according to People. Chris later became engaged to Laina-Rose Thyfault (who works in casting) in 2014, and they exchanged vows the following year. Meanwhile, Katie moved on to her most infamous relationship — more on that below!

Tom Cruise

“I used to think that I was going to marry Tom Cruise,” Katie, who was then still engaged to Chris Klein, told a Seventeen Magazine reporter in 2004. Ironically enough, her childhood dream came true. Everything happened fast for this duo in 2005: Katie split from Chris, and she made her first public appearance with Tom in Rome in April of that year (Tom was in Italy’s capital to pick up a David di Donatello Award for lifetime achievement).

The very next month, one of the most iconic moments in Hollywood happened: Tom stood up on Oprah Winfrey’s talk show couch and declared his “love” for Katie. By June of 2005, Katie revealed to reporters that she’s converting to Scientology (Tom’s religion) at her big premiere for Batman Begins. In the same month, Tom and Katie became engaged, and announced a child — who would be their daughter Suri Cruise — was on the way!

Suri arrived in April of 2006, and the grand wedding finally happened at the Odescalchi Castle in Bracciano, Italy in Nov. 2006. All seemed picture perfect until June of 2012, when Katie suddenly filed for divorce from Tom. Even more strange was a report that claimed Katie used “a throwaway cellphone” from a friend to talk to her lawyers and allegedly “hired three law firms in three states” for her divorce case, a source told the Los Angeles Times. Tom even admitted he “didn’t expect” the divorce while speaking with a German TV network called ProSieben in 2013.

Katie ended up with primary custody of Suri, and Tom hasn’t been photographed with his daughter since 2013. Neither parent has explained the situation, either. However, an insider EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife in April of 2019, “As challenging as things have become for him and his daughter, he still loves her. Tom never intended to be estranged from his daughter when he decided to have a family with Katie, and he looks forward to repairing their relationship one day.”

Jamie Foxx

Katie’s next high-profile relationship after Tom was with Ray star Jamie Foxx. However, there was no declarations of love on national TV in this relationship. Katie and Jamie remained very hush-hush after sparking romance rumors because they were seen dancing together at a charity event in the Hamptons in 2013. Jamie even said the romance rumors were “one hundred percent not true” in an interview with Entertainment Tonight in October of that year.

However, they were secretly photographed holding hands in 2015. The public didn’t see another PDA photo until 2017, when the rumored lovers were again seen holding hands in Malibu in 2017. From then on out, it appeared more clear that Katie and Jamie were definitely an item, even if they didn’t care to confirm the relationship in public.

They were pictured out and about on even more occasions, and were even seen together at Clive Davis’ 2018 Pre-Grammy Gala in New York City. After a long string of paparazzi photos, the couple finally attended their first public event together at the 2019 Met Gala (they didn’t walk the red carpet together, though).

Photos of the duo came to a halt after May of 2019. Just a few days after Jamie was seen holding hands with singer Sela Vave, it was reported in Aug. 2019 that Katie and Jamie had split.

Emilio Vitolo Jr.

We’ve finally arrived at Katie’s most recent romance! A few months before her 42nd birthday, Katie got fans talking after she was seen cracking up while having a meal with a mystery man in NYC at the beginning of September in 2020. Katie’s handsome lunch buddy turned out to be restaurateur Emilio Vitolo Jr., who owns an Italian restaurant called Emilio’s Ballato in NYC. It didn’t take long for fans to figure out if this relationship was platonic or not, because Katie and Emilio were seen making out during Labor Day weekend in Sept. 2020!

They made no effort of hiding this romance, either, as Katie was pictured sitting on top of Emilio’s lap and kissing him during their dinner date at Peasant Restaurant in Manhattan. Sadly, the romance lasted just eight months as the pair called it quits by May 2021. “The pair have parted ways amicably but remain friends,” a representative for Katie confirmed to Us Weekly.

“Their relationship fizzled. They figured out they’re better off as friends,” an insider revealed to Us. “There’s no drama that went down with the breakup and in fact, they’re still friends. Katie and Emilio really enjoyed their time together — it just simply didn’t work out. She’s focusing on being a mom and her upcoming projects,” they also added.

Katie Holmes and restauranteur Emilio Vitolo Jr. were first linked romantically in Sept. 2020 after a romantic lunch date.

Katie Holmes is back on the market! The 42-year-old actress has split from boyfriend of almost nine months Emilio Vitolo Jr., 33, Us Weekly reports. “The pair have parted ways amicably but remain friends,” a representative for Katie tells the magazine. HollywoodLife has reached out to Katie’s team for a statement.

The break-up news comes amidst the Dawson’s Creek alum working on film The Watergate Girl in Connecticut. Katie was spotted shooting scenes for the flick on April 21 with a red mustang and appears to be between New York City and Connecticut as she works. Emilio — who is the co-owner of his family restaurant Emilio’s Ballato — was regularly photographed with Katie through the fall and winter months.

“Their relationship fizzled. They figured out they’re better off as friends,” an insider revealed to Us. “There’s no drama that went down with the breakup and in fact, they’re still friends,” the source explained. “Katie and Emilio really enjoyed their time together — it just simply didn’t work out. She’s focusing on being a mom and her upcoming projects,” they also added. The duo were no stranger to PDA, either, and photographed making out everywhere from Central Park benches and outdoor restaurant patios (including his own).

It’s been over a month since Katie and Emilio have been seen together, and just weeks since reports surfaced that they were taking some “space” due to their “different schedules” not jiving. The duo were often seen on romantic strolls through New York City, as well as eating al fresco. They seemed so in love as they snuggled up for a Thanksgiving walk last November, and Emilio also shared a sweet post for her 42nd birthday.

“The most amazing, kindest, beautiful person,” Emilio, who also works as an actor, wrote. “Every time I see your face, it makes me smile. Happy birthday!!! I love you!!” he gushed, sharing an adorable candid photo of him and Katie.

“He works in New York in the restaurant business and she’s obviously a busy actress who just was away for some time filming,” the source also revealed to Us. Last month, other reports surfaced that the hot and heavy relationship had “cooled down.”

Prior to Emilio, Katie was linked romantically to Jamie Foxx, 53. She was married to Tom Cruise from 2006 to 2012, and the pair share daughter Suri Cruise, 15, together. In recent weeks, Katie and her mini me daughter have been spotted out and about in the Big Apple — even twinning in matching cashmere sweaters.

Kyla-Drew is the breakout star of Netflix’s ‘Dad Stop Embarrassing Me!’ HL spoke EXCLUSIVELY with the young actress about how Jamie Foxx has inspired her and more.

The new Netflix comedy series Dad Stop Embarrassing Me! stars Jamie Foxx and Kyla-Drew as father and daughter Brian and Sasha Dixon. Sasha comes to live with Brian full-time in the show, which is inspired by Jamie’s relationship with his real-life daughter Corinne Foxx, who serves as an executive producer. HollywoodLife chatted EXCLUSIVELY with Kyla-Drew about playing Jamie’s onscreen daughter and how Corinne was such a pivotal figure for her throughout filming.

Corinne is such a baddie, literally,” Kyla-Drew told HollywoodLife during the show’s press junket. “We exchanged information the first day that I was on set, and she was very supportive and very open to giving me freedom and creative freedom in terms of the character and storylines. Whenever I just needed anything or had any questions about the character and stories, she was always there.”

In addition to her Oscar-winning onscreen dad, Kyla-Drew also starred alongside the great David Alan Grier, who plays Sasha’s grandfather Pops. Being on set with two Hollywood greats was not lost on Kyla-Drew. “I’ve learned so much [from them] in terms of acting, but also things personally,” the actress said. “I think a big lesson that they taught me is to hold my own and do not get intimidated. I’m with them because I’m also talented. They consistently reminded me of that throughout the filming process. I think that was the greatest lesson that they taught me was just self-confidence. I’m a GOAT [Greatest of All-Time], too.”

Kyla-Drew noted that the cast meshed together very easily. “As soon as we stepped onto that set, we were all like a family. It was instant chemistry, and I hope that you can see that in the show,” she told HollywoodLife.

Sasha moves in with her father after the death of her mother. Brian is a successful business owner and a very eligible bachelor. Over the course of the season, Sasha and Brian learn many important life lessons together. Kyla-Drew reveals how Sasha is handling her loss when she first comes to live with her dad. “I think Sasha definitely keeps her emotions in and bottles them up,” Kyla-Drew said. “In terms of her mom’s death, she’s just been keeping her emotions in, and then I think she’s lashing out and taking out her anger on her dad, Pops, Chelsea, and everyone.” Dad Stop Embarrassing Me! is now streaming on Netflix.

New Blu-ray/DVD Releases (04/14/20) – Justice for ‘Just Mercy’

New Blu-ray/DVD Releases (04/14/20) – Justice for ‘Just Mercy’By Joey Magidson – April 14, 2020

    This week, the Oscar-snubbed biographical drama “Just Mercy” leads the charge of new Blu-ray/DVD releases. It also happens to be one of the only options today, so it’s a good thing that it’s quality entertainment, voters be damned.

    PICK OF THE WEEK“Just Mercy”

    A cast led by Jamie Foxx and Michael B. Jordan, playing real people in an extraordinary circumstance, under the direction of Destin Daniel Cretton? That should have been catnip to the Academy, but voters ignored this biopic, looking elsewhere for their nominations. It’s a shame, too, as this film offers up a strong legal drama at its core, with the added bonus of the characters being actual human beings. Back at the Toronto International Film Festival, we filed this review here on the site:

    When a director gets an inherently powerful story, it doesn’t take a herculean effort to make a film that will resonate with audiences. With “Just Mercy,” director Destin Daniel Cretton accomplishes just that. Channeling the classic legal dramas, Cretton delivers a genuine crowd-pleaser by trusting in the power of the film’s story and the ability of his actors to convey its essential message.

    “Just Mercy” also features quality work from Brie Larson and especially Rob Morgan, who arguably steals the show. Even in a better week, it would likely be the top pick, so give it a look, especially if you missed it the first time around!

    Special Features: Deleted Scenes, Featurettes, and more
    Total Box Office: $36,001,502
    Major Awards: None


    For today’s Vintage pick, horror is the name of the game. It’s Eli Roth‘s first film “Cabin Fever,” which deals with a deadly flesh eating virus. Not the most comforting of subjects, but Roth’s visual eye, along with the zaniness he gives the movie, prevents it from ever being dour. Even the New York Times was oddly taken by it:

    An unusually potent blend of dread, gore and gallows humor.If you have the stomach for some major gore, this is a good deal of fun.OTHER FILMS BEING RELEASED

    Here’s a look at what else is hitting shelves today, besides the sole recommended title, “Just Mercy.”


    Kristen Stewart in a monster movie isn’t exactly an everyday occurrence. Despite that unique pairing, audiences stayed away from this early 2020 effort, suggesting that many weren’t interested in Stewart taking on a Ripley-like role right now. Reviews were mixed, though New York Magazine found a surprising amount to latch on to:

    Underwater might look on its surface like an Alien retread, but it doesn’t dole out the scares in artful, tensely conceived little pieces like that film… It’s relentless, and voracious, with a kind of kitchen-sink bravado when it comes to jump scares.

    Genre fans, as well as Stewart devotees, might want to give “Underwater” a shot. Just keep your expectations in check.

    Box Office: $17,291,078

    Special Criterion Collection Section“Destry Rides Again”

    Our only Criterion option today is this classic comedic Western from 1939, “Destry Rides Again.” Starring Marlene Dietrich and Jimmy Stewart, this George Marshall movie is about as fun as it gets, with a look that many a film would copy in the years to come. The Collection leans in to just how enjoyable this one is in their sales pitch:

    A sparkling script, a supporting cast of virtuoso character actors, and rollicking musical numbers—delivered with unmatched bravado by the magnetic Dietrich—come together to create an irresistible, oft-imitated marvel of studio-era craftsmanship.

    If you want a good smile this week, then pick this one up!

    Disney Finds New Dates For ‘Soul’ and ‘Raya and the Last Dragon’

    Disney Finds New Dates For ‘Soul’ and ‘Raya and the Last Dragon’By Griffin Schiller – April 13, 2020

      After staying silent during the initial wave of film delays and cancelations, Disney has made significant changes to their slate. Two weeks ago, the studio did a complete overhaul of their calendar. “Mulan” and “Black Widow” found new release dates later this year; Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt‘s “Jungle Cruise” was pushed back to next summer; the entire Marvel slate was reshuffled and much more. The Mouse also announced that Kenneth Branaugh‘s “Artemis Fowl” was heading to Disney+. Shortly after, former Disney CEO Bob Iger alluded to plans for more feature films to debut on the streaming platform. Many began to speculate as to what this could mean for Pixar‘s “Soul” and Disney Animation’s “Raya and the Last Dragon,” especially given the former’s June release date. Now, we have our answer.

      On Monday, Disney announced new release dates for both “Soul” and “Raya and the Last Dragon.” “Soul” will move from its Jun. 19, 2020 release date to Nov. 20, 2020, a date presumably held by “Raya.” As a result, “Raya and the Last Dragon” will move from its November 2020 slot to Mar. 12, 2021.

      Pixar’s “Soul” features the vocal talents of Oscar winner Jamie Foxx, Daveed Digs, Tina Fey, Angela Bassett, Quest Love, and Phylicia Rashad. The film is directed by Pete Doctor (“Inside Out“) and follows a middle school band teacher whose dream of being a professional Jazz musician has gone by the wayside. After an unexpected accident, he soon travels to another realm and helps someone else discover their passion. In so doing, he discovers what it means to have a soul.

      “Raya and the Last Dragon” stars Cassie Steele as the title character and Awkwafina as the water dragon Sisu. Directed by Paul Briggs and Dean Wellins from a script by “Crazy Rich Asians” scribe, Adele Lim, “Raya” takes place in a mysterious realm known as Kumandra. The film follows a fearless warrior named Raya as she searches for the last dragon in the world.

      Disney’s decision to shift “Soul” away from its June release is unsurprising considering the industry as a whole isn’t expecting theaters to reopen until mid to late summer. It does, however, continue to jam pack the November and December release calendar. “Black Widow,” “Godzilla vs. Kong,” “No Time To Die,” “Dune,” “Top Gun: Maverick,” and “West Side Story” are just a few of the films opening weeks apart. While securing prime slots during the holiday, one has to wonder how the crowded field will affect the box office returns.

      What do you all make of Disney’s decision to move “Soul” and “Raya and the Last Dragon?” Do you think the crowded November and December calendar will affect box office returns? Let us know in the comments below!

      Forbes calling because they know niggas rich
      We don’t make music for broke niggas
      Only for rich niggas out getting money
      I stay to myself, I keep shit on the low
      And they say that I’m broke, boy, y’all funny
      Still ball, I’m a Minute Made fan now
      Still getting "Like Mike" checks in the mail now
      Blowing big blunts, kush smoke in the air now
      Young niggas in here turnt, we don’t pipe down
      [Verse 3: Soulja Boy]
      Young niggas turnt, we don’t pipe down
      Posted on the block with the Glocks out
      Posted on the block in the drop with Bow Wow
      Pinky ring, 10 chain cost a 100 thou
      Young rich niggas, yeah, we all about paper
      Rollie my wrist, bust down on a hater
      The niggas mad, just look at they faces
      Went and spent 50 thousand for a bracelet
      Posted on the block, I’m gripping
      Serena Williams how I play with the racks like it’s tennis
      Shoot this Draco just like Dennis the Menace
      Standing in Zone 1, I’m serving the pigeons
      Hit the p-jet with a hundred and fifty chickens
      Drunk and testing, thought they say it’s finger licking
      Knock out the plug, I ain’t leaving no witness
      Sipping on Actavis, feeling the promethazine in my kidneys

      [Verse 4: Bow Wow]
      Club jumping because we in it
      Niggas mad because we winning
      Money coming by the boatloads
      Fuck saving, we gonna spend it
      Costa Mesa with your bitch
      We just spent about a grit
      Left nothing on the racks
      We just fucking up Saks
      Designer this, designer that
      Always ten, we on the map
      Speaking of the town, still the king of that
      Homie, I’m just stating facts
      Party at Jamie Foxx’s house
      Fucking hoes on the couch
      Never catching feelings with these bitches
      Fuck them one time then kick them out
      Been stunting since a jit
      Red bottoms for the kicks
      Switch the Rolly for the Cartier
      Niggas balling, Penny Hardaway
      Got a Gotti never drove it
      Drive the Rover like it’s stolen
      Diamonds came from Elliot the jeweler
      So you know my neck and wrist is frozen
      I just got a check, nigga
      So I’m gonna flex, nigga
      Got a driveway full of foreigns
      I don’t drive Corvettes, nigga
