Tyler Perry is known for bringing comedic relief to characters and situations that can be tough to navigate. This process is meant to make things that are hard to deal with more palatable. His character Madea is often the center of the comedy in Perry’s work. Ironically, one of Madea’s many funny but memorable moments is centered around death. In one of Perry’s productions, the outspoken grandmother was confronted with the end of a loved one and boldly stated a phrase that had people in stitches but also had them a little confused. “People dying that ain’t never died before.” And while that statement doesn’t make much sense in a structured way, the theory behind it alludes to the unpredictable nature of death.

However, this is no...

When you’re Kanye West, your interaction with money is different. The Chicago native has been in the game for years and has achieved much success, but when it comes to the coin, he probably doesn’t move like most.

According to HipHopDX, the rapper has confirmed that it’s been years since he’s actually touched cash. “What you want me to pose with that?” he asked as a woman approached him with a wad of cash. “I ain’t going to lie to you. I ain’t touch cash in like four years.” With a smirk, the rapper shrugged off the statement and even began to chuckle as someone next to him pointed out that his response was an indicator of “real wealth.”

Billionaire Robert F. Smith could be making history in the near future. According to Bleacher Report, the Denver Broncos could be up for sale in the NFL offseason. If indeed, the Broncos go up for sale, Smith has expressed an interest in bidding on the team. The Broncos are reportedly worth $3.75 billion. “If Denver is put up for sale, it will likely be through an auction because it is under the Patrick D. Bowlen Trust,” reports the outlet, who added that the sale of the team would benefit the seven Bowlen children.

Bowlen Trust umbrella,” Denver’s 9News reported. “This means the trustees would have a fiduciary responsibility to the trust’s...
