Here's a video from a guy named Brewski. (Yup, Brewski.) In the promo e-mail I got earlier containing this video, he was dubbed "The white Chief Keef. " After reading that, I made this face:   Now, if you'll excuse me, I'd like to address young Brewski and his team: Look, I get it. I get it! You've invested time and money in a rap career bolstered by your bros and well-intended yet misled black guys named Chris whom you played rec league basketball with, and hey, good on you for that.

President Obama poked fun at his Republican rivals at Saturday night's White House Correspondents' Dinner in Washington, but didn't spare his own Secret Service, secretary of state or even his past indulgence of exotic cuisine as he delivered remarks before a crowd of Hollywood stars, political power brokers and journalists. Jimmy Kimmel hosted the event and doled out his own skewerings, but kept things relatively low key in comparison with 2011 host Seth Meyers' roastings. Check out some of their best quips from the night.  Obama "Four years ago, I was locked in a brutal primary battle with Hillary Clinton.

2012 has certainly been Chief Keef's year: the 17-year-old Chicago emcee was freed from prison, dropped "Don't Like," was remixed by Kanye, performed at Lolla, tweeted in bad taste over a rival rapper's death, Instagrammed oral sex, signed to a major label and is getting his own Beats by Keef headphones. And he's also going to release a real album with music. That's assuming his "Finally Rich" album from Interscope doesn't get pushed back from its Dec. 18 release date, which has pretty much become the standard for most rap albums anymore.

*** (out of four) In the span of a year, 17-year-old rapper and Englewood native Chief Keef went from being a kid caught with a gun to a figurehead for all of Chicago's violence. Yet Keef's Interscope debut, "Finally Rich," contrary to what some may expect, is not a collection of songs about gun violence. Keef talks way more about having money and doing drugs and continues to show that he cannot be classified as a one-note artist. His songs are too immediate, not to mention fun to sing along with.

Chief Keef's management said Thursday that it's “unfair” to target individuals hanging posters in the city promoting the rapper's upcoming album. The comments came as the Sun Times reported Wednesday  that police Union Vice President Daniel Gorman said posters promoting the album “Finally Rich,” which debuts next Tuesday, are a “slap in the face” to officers who serve in South Side communities. “It seems as if he's being hailed a hero,” Gorman told the Sun Times, adding that police are searching those...

When I spry young pup, my momma used to carry me around by the scruff of my neck. For those of you not familiar with canine behavior, that's totally normal. Loving, even. Why do I bring this up in a column where I'm supposed to predict the weekend's NFL action and challenge you to beat me? Neckbeard, of course. Former Bear Kyle Orton is back in town, and he's likely to play against the his former team Sunday when the Kansas City Chiefs visit Soldier Field. He's not the starter, but don't worry, he'll be in.

Deep in the bowels of the basement of the Field Museum, Emily Graslie peels back the fur of a recently deceased giant anteater to reveal pinkish flesh underneath. "I think this takes the cake as the strangest anatomically animal I've ever done," she says while slicing into its abdomen with a scalpel. Soon this 82-pound specimen, a former zoo animal named Hosenose, will be skinned, dissected, stripped of its organs, cleaned and sent off to another museum for study or display. After that, it's safe to say the anteater corpse will become a minor...
