GQ revealed its 2018 Men of the Year winners on Monday and named the 31-year-old actor its Leader of the Year. 



It’s certainly been an exciting time for Jordan. Not only did he have a lead role in the box-office hit Black Panther, but he also starred in Creed II, which hits theaters this month. In addition, he’s set to appear in the 2020 film Just Mercy and balances it all while running his own production company, Outlier Society Productions. 

“I want to be worldwide,” the star told the magazine, listing off Tom Cruise, Leonardo DiCaprioand Will Smith as some of his inspirations.

 Granted, this doesn’t leave him with a lot of time to devote to his personal life, especially dating. 

“My career is awesome. It is going great. There’s other places in my life that I’m f–king lacking at. I’m very mature and advanced in a lot of areas of life. Dating may not be one of ’em,” he said. “My personal life is not. I don’t really know what dating is.”

Instead, Jordan is more focused on “trying to work on myself and build this empire.”

ordan has been in the biz since an early age. As fans will recall, he landed the role of Wallace on The Wire at age 14. He then acted in a number of TV shows, including All My Children, The AssistantsFriday Night Lights and Parenthood. Still auditioning was never easy, especially when he was often going up against his friends for the same role.“You feel like you’re pitted against each other, in hindsight,” he said. “I was like, ‘Damn! Everybody should be able to, like, work and grow and eat together. We’re not. Well, then, I guess there’s not enough roles.”

As result, he knew there was only one solution.

“I guess the only logical thing to do is to create more roles,” he said.

As Hollywood continues to become more diverse and underrepresented stories continue to be told, Jordan continues to aspire for greatness.

“I remember when it used to be like, ‘He’s the next Will Smith,'” he told the publication. “Now I’m the example of the next—they’re looking for the next me.”

Jordan isn’t GQ’s only cover star this year. The magazine also named Jonah Hill Director of the Year and Henry Golding Star of the Year. Serena Williams was also named Champion of the Year.

Polish author Olga Tokarczuk and Austria’s Peter Handke have been awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature, with Kenya’s Ngugi wa Thiong’o overlooked.

Two winners were named – one for 2019 and one for 2018 – because the prize was not awarded last year.

The Swedish Academy, which oversees the prestigious award, suspended it in 2018 after a sexual assault scandal.

Tokarczuk, who also won the Man Booker International Prize last year, was awarded the 2018 Nobel Prize, with this year’s Nobel going to Handke.

Ngugi wa Thiong’o had been considered a strong candidate for the prize, but he failed

In just a few hours, we’ll be hearing Kevin Gates’ latest musical offering in its entirety. For months, we’ve been hearing about his I’m Him project and we’re about to find out exactly why Gates is that dude.

After his release from prison early last year, the Baton Rouge veteran released his Chained To The City EP before coming through with Luca Brasi 3. It’s officially album time and his fans couldn’t be any more excited. Kicking off the campaign, the Bread Winner is starting us off with the introductory song on I’m Him, dropping a video for “RBS Intro.”

The video for “RBS Intro” was filmed during Gates’ trip to Amsterdam and the track itself is hard-hitting like most of his other hits. This will be the first cut from the new album.

Kevin Gates has described this journey as a reintroduction to himself, showing off all sides of his mind and truly remaining an open book. He said: “All of those negative connotations the world puts out…I’m him. All of those positive connotations the world puts out…I’m him as well. This is the new Kevin versus the old Kevin. It’s a celebration. It’s a rebirth. It’s redemption. I’m overcoming who I used to be in order to be greater.”

Stay tuned for the new album tonight!

Quotable Lyrics:

Hold it down when I’m on lock
Calling shots from the box
Diamond teeth full of rocks
I’m a real big speaker
