    The troubled 2020 NFL Draft bust, whose career lasted less than a year and was mired by multiple run-ins with the law, dropped a hip hop/rap EP dubbed “Layup Lines” on Apr. 25 under the name “GGBOWZER.” Early indications are the six-track, 16-minute album is an acquired taste: Wilson, a Brooklyn native, was arrested three times in a seven-month span beginning in September that effectively ended his playing career with one game played.

Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) urging people to "go to the streets and be violent." The spot will appear during Fox News' primetime lineup starting next week, the Huffington Post reported. It also takes aim at Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) for...
