Kanye did an interview (and you know he doesn’t do interviews) where he said he’s happy for Big Sean being #6, but that he should have been higher than 7. He said, “They didn’t like the Cruel Summer album. And, I’m like its a compilation. Cruel Summer got “Don’t Like (Remix),” “Mercy,” “Cold,” “New Gold Flow,” and “Clique” all on one joint.Ain’t nobody bringing up that “Diamonds” remix verse. It wasn’t no verse in a year that was fin with that verse! It’s definitely not based on a body of work, but possibly it could be, like, overall rap-MC-swag. They don’t like Givenchy-Kanye. They don’t like Kanye in a kilt. They don’t like Kanye in a relationship." ASAP Rocky also weighed in saying “if he’s not #1 then don’t put him on the list.”

They say 1 in 5 was left without any headache pain at all after they have sex. One theory is that sex works by triggering the release of endorphins, the body’s natural painkillers, which act on the central nervous system to reduce or eliminate the headache.
