We are in an era where anything can become public knowledge. Aspects of everyday lives are published on social media, things that could be incriminating or just something that the whole world doesn't need to know.

It's even gotten to a point where rappers like The Game, who has had his fair share of rap beefs, say young rappers should stop showing how much money they have via social media.

Since Lil Wayne's recent pardon from former President Donald Trump, he seems to be giving out much-needed advice to the younger generation in one of the most iconic ways you can.

Are Lil Wayne and Kodak Black among the list of high-profile rappers receiving a pardon from Trump?

In a tweet on Thursday, Lil Wayne referenced one of his own lyrics from "6 Foot 7 Foot" to shed light on this reality.

"Real G'z move in silence like...." writes Lil Wayne, which is seemingly direct and to the point. The continuation of the lyric is "Real G'z move in silence like lasagna" hence the "g" is silent.

What a clever way to tell it like it is.Although his decision to tweet this is unknown, many will always have their own speculations about things

I believe the song, which is now a decade old, is still relevant through that particular bar.

We should always be mindful of the things we put out on the internet. For example, if people show thousands of dollars on their social media feeds, it could cause others to wish for their downfall.

They can also accidentally incriminate themselves by tagging their location in one place when they are supposed to be somewhere else. There's a myriad of things that can pose challenges on social media.

Besides, we all know the cliché yet sensible phrase, "once it's on the internet, it'll always be on the internet."

With that in mind, we must always remember to think wisely.

When I was a young man playing rugby, I was in an environment where I felt (rightly or wrongly) that it was only socially acceptable to be straight, so I pretended! It may not have been particularly healthy for my personal wellbeing, but it didn't take long to learn what to say and how to behave in order to convince those around me. And it worked pretty well! So much so that when one of my teammates later met my boyfriend at a wedding, he famously said to the bride and groom that I "couldn't possibly be gay because he played rugby with me for years!"

So why is this little anecdote so relevant to COP 26? Well… because if a shy, introverted gay boy can pull off being straight, then it is not exactly hard for politicians with their armies of speech writers, advisers and spin doctors to pretend to be green. And that is what many of them are doing!

The 7 surprising perks of having kids

Being a parent can be rough, but the fact that I love them is a given.

Being a parent can be rough.

This week alone, I've faced homework deadlines, a sickness bug, multiple tantrums, a nasty smash on the head (their head, not mine). I've been yelled at for breaking character when I was supposed to be Wolverine, and I've read The Gruffalo about a thousand times (feels like).
