If you don’t agree with something, PLEASE ... do me a favor and unfollow me. You will NOT be missed. And for all the sweet, positive, happy people ... we love you and thank you!!"

Memphis rapper, 7, knocks 'em dead at the Apollo

Meet Otis Morris Jr. This 7-year-old rapper from Memphis skyrocketed to stardom earlier this year after he appeared on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”

>> Read more trending news

Thursday he starred in the hit Fox show “Showtime at the Apollo.”

Otis, who goes by the stage name Yung Hunnid, said, “That was a huge opportunity to be with Steve Harvey. I wasn't nervous, but I was freaking out, flipping out, freaking and flipping out.”

Yung Hunnid started rapping at the age of 2.

Now, this Memphis lyrical prodigy is setting his sights high, even though he's still in elementary school.

Yung Hunnid said, “God’s plan … God’s plan … I hold back, sometimes I won't, yeah.”

Otis said working with DeGeneres was cool, but working with Harvey was on another level of greatness.

He said that while he performed he thought, “I’m going to have a good performance, because I want everybody to clap.”

While Otis just started his career, he said one day after he conquers the rap world, a different career choice might be in the cards.

“I'll probably be a doctor when I’m big, but now while I’m small I’m going to be a superstar,” Otis said.

Tiger Woods' shot lands in woman's handbag

Tiger Woods has made millions of dollars playing golf, so why was he rummaging through a woman’s handbag during Friday’s second round of the Valspar Championship?

>> Read more trending news

Woods, who charged into contention with a 3-under-par 68, hit his second shot at the par-4 ninth hole -- his final hole of the day -- to the right of the green. It landed in the handbag of Marianne Cousins, a 57-year-old resident of Clearwater, Florida, who was attending her first golf tournament, the Tampa Bay Times reported.

“We knew when he hit it, and then of course I didn't see it,” said Cousins told the Times. "All day I've been saying 'I don't even see them. How do people even see the ball until it hits on the green? All of sudden my friends started screaming, "It's in your bag!”

Cousins carries a clear plastic bag, one she takes to Tampa Bay Buccaneers games, where she is a season-ticket holder, the Times reported.

People around Cousins told her not to move, and definitely warned her not to touch the errant golf ball that was nestled in her handbag.

“I just froze there,” Cousins told the Times. “When Tiger came up and said ‘where's the ball?’ I said, ‘In my bag. Between my feet. I didn't touch it.’

"And he said, ‘thank you.’”

By rule, Cousins’ bag was considered an obstruction, which allowed him to take a free drop. So Woods reached into Cousins’ bag and continued playing. He chipped to within six feet but missed his par putt for his only bogey of the round, the Times reported. 

Woods ended Friday in a five-way tie for second place, two strokes behind leader Corey Conners, ESPN reported.
