Cookie Monster responds to Siri's snarky comments
Palm Beach Post
Siri isn't a Sesame Street character, but if you ask her "what's 0 divided by o?" she certainly becomes a bit grouchy. So much so that she mentions Cookie Monster in her response: Cookie Monster photo. Cookie Monster. "Imagine that you have zero …

On top of having one of the rap world’s greatest names, Chicago group Hurt Everybody have teamed up with one of their hometown’s brightest young stars for their highest-profile single to date. Prone to Eastern mythology and occult imagery, they pull Mick into their orbit for “Social Network,” where the notion of the friend is punctuated by sharp, barked repetitions of the word “gang.” If you’re worried your 4th of July celebrations will lack the requisite amount of politically-bent debauchery, 2K47 drops that morning. The tape will come complete with artwork for each individual song, plus an explanatory paragraph for each. As Supa Bwe says, it ”isn’t your run-of-the-mill bullshit mixtape.” He goes on: “It’s a nearly invincible body of work. A collective catharsis. The underdogs apotheosis.” It would be tempting to say that Hurt Everybody are setting the bar too high for themselves, but “Social Network” makes it sound as if they’re just being honest.

Very scary news out of an industrial plant in Europe
For those that have long opposed the regular use of robots in the workplace, citing their inability to use human discretion, here’s your ammunition. A robot grabbed a man and crushed him against a metal plate, causing fatal injuries.
According to the AP, the robot’s malfunction was likely due to human error, which doomed the 22-year old employee. Normally, the robot is programmed to grab parts and manipulate them in a confined area. The individual died at the plant before he was able to be rushed to a hospital.
Prosecutors are still determining whether or not charges should be filed, and if so, against whom, and there is an ongoing investigation into the matter. Chances are, if criminal charges aren’t filed, Volkswagen has a massive lawsuit coming their way from the young man’s family.
Kidd Kidd’s attorney, Scott Leemon, sent in the following statement to XXL dispelling the allegations that his client allegedly assaulted and strangled a woman in a domestic dispute.
“The New York allegations are totally baseless. They were made 4 months later by a woman who has a history of making false allegations against Mr. Stewart. We are confident once the District Attorney’s office investigate the matter, Kidd Kidd will be vindicated.” G-Unit adds: “50 Cent and G-Unit fully support Kidd Kidd in this matter.”
Last night (June 30) in Times Square in New York City before the 2015 XXL Freshman concert, the G-Unit rapper was handcuffed outside the Best Buy Theater in front of hundreds of fans. Kidd, real name Curtis Stewart, was one of the ten rappers featured as part of the 2015 XXL Freshman Class and was scheduled to perform. Previous reports stated that the NYPD was on the hunt for Kidd since February. The woman’s name that claimed Kidd Kidd assaulted her is Maurita Robinson. Robinson posted pictures of herself with injuries suggesting that the rapper was beating her on Instagram. Kidd Kidd took to Instagram to vehemently deny Robinson’s allegations that he had assaulted her in the past, stating that those injuries came way before he had walked into the picture and that he had nothing to do with them.
As of right now Kidd is currently still behind bars with his next court appearance scheduled to be on July 6. 50 has stated on Instagram that he will bail Kidd Kidd out as soon as he can. XXL will continue to update this story as more details come in.

Statik Selektah is ready to move on. As the veteran producer has said numerous times in the run-up to his seventh studio album, Lucky 7 (due out, you guessed it, July 7), he’s ready to move on to bigger, better and more challenging projects. Putting together a compilation record with his friends and collaborators rapping over his production has been reliable, but it feels too routine. Fortunately, that familiarity means that we get effortless cuts like “All You Need.” Anchored by one of Action Bronson’s two appearances on the album, the song also benefits from Elle Varner’s soulful vocals and from a colorful turn by the always animated Ab-Soul.
