In 2000, Mike Epps rose to stardom when he replaced Chris Tucker in the iconic Friday series. Since then, Mike Epps took his place as Ice Cube’s right-hand man. Some even go as far as to say Epps overall replaced Chris Tucker in the industry.
Truth be told, Mike Epps carved out his own lane and he is a legend in his own right. Currently, Mike Epps has a key role in “Survivor’s Remorse,” Starz’ hit comedy. More pressing, however, is his starring role in the Uncle Buck remake on ABC.
In the midst of this, Mike Epps got into an untimely social media beef with Rick Ross’ ex, Lira Galore. The popular model’s Instagram account was hacked and then DMs from Mike Epps and a few others leaked, causing Epps to go off on her. They exchanged insults on social media for days, but Mike Epps offered an apology to her and his fans, tonight.
