Jimmy Kimmel Debuts A Hip-Hop Version Of His Infamous 'Mean Tweets' Segment

"Place your energy somewhere a little more productive."

Over the years, Jimmy Kimmel has put together some pretty entertaining "Mean Tweets" segments, featuring everyone from the Avengers to NBA stars. This week, it was time for some of hip-hop's biggest names to read the most insulting comments the internet has to offer — and share a few comebacks.

The segment features artists such as A$AP Rocky, DJ Khaled, Remy Ma, T-Pain, and Awkwafina. As usual, the tweets presented range from profanity-laden digs to amusing observations, and the stars handle them with an entertaining mixture of humor, surprise, and nonchalance.


Some of the tweets are so creative, in fact, that we have to wonder if their originators posted them in the hope of getting on the show. For example, have you ever noticed that "Ty Dolla $ign looks like the crab from Moana"? (The show provides a helpful visual comparison.) Then there's this vivid description: "Lil Wayne is what happens when you pour Four Loko on a gremlin."

50 Cent has some wise words for the user who sent this tweet: "Place your energy somewhere a little more productive."

We love how shocked Logic seems to be by his tweet: "Yo, that's messed up."

Eve is happy to answer the question posed in her assigned tweet: "Yup."
