Jett was born on Apr. 13, 1992 in Los Angeles, CA. John and Kelly were very open about his autism and revealed her had Kawasaki syndrome, which is “an illness that causes blood vessels to become inflamed,” according to WebMD. “He was autistic, he had seizures and when he was very young, he had Kawasaki syndrome,” Kelly reportedly said in an episode of The Doctors in 2012. Jett sadly died in 2009 at the age of 16 after he suffered a seizure at his family’s vacation home in the Bahamas.

After his death, John and Kelly made sure to keep his memory alive by sharing his story with the media and posting photos of him on social media, especially on special occasions like his birthday. On the 10th anniversary of his passing, Kelly shared a sweet tribute to him that included a heartwarming message. “To my sweet love, Jett … you are in our hearts forever,” she wrote alongside a photo of her and John kissing him. “I send love to all of the beautiful autistic children and the wonderful people who love them. May we all shine and grant love and respect to children with special needs.”

Ella was born on Apr. 3, 2000 in California. She followed in her parents’ footsteps when she appeared in her first acting role at age 9. It was in a role in Old Dogs alongside Robin Williams and she went on to appear in John’s movie, The Poison Rose in 2019. She also starred in a live-action reimagining of Alice in Wonderland called Get Lost in 2021 and John proudly took to Instagram to share a snapshot of her in costume along with a loving message. “Here’s my daughter Ella starring in a live action re-imagining of Alice in Wonderland! Called, ‘Get Lost’ I’m a very proud dad!” he wrote.

When Ella’s not building her acting resume, she’s spending time with her family and often posts photos with her dad and younger brother Benjamin whenever she can. She also often shares heartfelt tributes to Jett and her mom Kelly.

Benjamin was born on Nov. 23, 2010 and is the youngest child of John and Kelly. He has already enjoyed the spotlight with his parents and made his red carpet debut at the France premiere of Solo: A Star Wars Story in May 2018. When he’s not around cameras, he likes to play all kinds of sports. “He’s into gymnastics, tennis, fishing and the computer world, like all the kids,” John told PEOPLE in Aug. 2019.

The talented pre-teen also enjoys dancing and has been seen in a few dancing videos with his dad. John also revealed that his youngest son seems to have a serious side and said he taught him a lesson about living and being grateful when they had a discussion about death after his mom died. “He said, ‘Does 30 years ago seem like a long time?’ I said, ‘Yeah.’ He said, ‘Don’t you think you have 30 more years in your life to live?’ I said, ‘Yeah, I do. I have at least 30 more years.’ He said, ‘What’s wrong with that?’” John explained on Hart to Heart in Aug. 2021. “This is a 10-year-old telling me that! It changed my viewpoint.”

Yes, ‘Jumanji 4’ is still very much happening! Here’s everything you need to know about the fourth installment of the franchise.

The inimitable Robin Williams first introduced us to the curious world of Jumanji, a magical board game that unleashes a world of adventure and chaos, in the 1995 film Jumanji, culminating in several successful continuations ever since. The sequel 2017 Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle and the 2019 third installment Jumanji: The Next Level expanded on that world, introducing new (but familiar) faces in the form of Dwayne Johnson, Karen Gillan, Kevin Hart, and Jack Black.

The franchise has been a success in the box office, so it’s no surprise that Jumanji 4, has, in fact, already been confirmed. Hiram Garcia, president of production at Seven Bucks Productions — the studio behind the latest installments — confirmed in March that a fourth was “100 percent” happening, revealing the team has “been discussing it.”

“We’re in the process of moving that along,” Hiram told ComicBook.com. “I can’t tell you anything, but we do have big plans for it and that’s one of our favorite projects to work on and that’s cooking away.” With that in mind, here’s what you should know about Jumanji 4.

The original Jumanji followed Robin’s Alan Parrish, a man who has been stuck in the world of the magical board game for decades. It’s up to siblings Judy (Kirsten Dunst) and Peter (Bradley Pierce) to win the game in order to free him after they stumble upon it when they move into the Parrish mansion. Director Jake Kasdan gave the sequel a modern flare, turning Jumanji into a video game. Four high schoolers — Alex Wolff as Spencer, Ser’Darius Blain as “Fridge,” Morgan Turner as Martha, and Madison Iseman as Bethany — get sucked into the game, assuming the role of different avatars (played by Dwayne, Karen, Kevin, and Jack star as the core avatars).

They’re then tasked with breaking a curse in order to be freed from the game. Nick Jonas also stars as avatar Jefferson “Seaplane” McDonough in the second installment. Danny DeVito and Danny Glover joined the third film as Spencer’s grandfather and his friend — both of whom get sucked into the game. Fellow newcomer Awkwafina played the role of a new avatar named Ming Fleetfoot. In the most recent installment, Fridge, Martha, and Bethany must re-enter the game fo bring Spencer home — but the game is now malfunctioning, resulting in more obstacles to get home. In the mid-credits scene, Spencer’s mom and a mechanic are unwittingly sucked into the game, causing some of the jungle animals to escape into the real world.

Given the way the third installment ended, Jumanji 4 will in all likelihood explore the aftermath of Spencer’s mom (Marin Hinkle) and the unassuming mechanic getting sucked into the video game world of Jumanji. With the jungle animals escaped into the real world, too, havoc is to be expected. This also leaves room for the possibility of avatars entering the real world.

While the official plot is still being kept under wraps, Dwayne has teased that the fourth film’s big villain could have ties to avatar Jurgen the Brutal. “Cool plot twist about JURGAN (for those who caught it) is he’s an actual avatar in the game,” he wrote on Instagram in December 2019. “Meaning – SOMEONE is playing him. But who? That’s the big mystery. In the next JUMANJI we’ll find out just who’s been playing the JURGAN THE BRUTE.” A release date has not been confirmed or teased yet.

Fans have not received much updates given that the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted filming schedules, thus, returning cast and crew for Jumanji 4 have not been publicly announced just yet. It would not be far off to presume that the core cast would reprise their avatar roles, though: Dwayne as Bravestone, Karen as Ruby, Kevin as Mouse, and Jack as Oberon. With Dwayne’s previous tease, one would presume that Jurgen actor Rory McCann will also reprise his role. Alex, Madison, Ser’Darius, and Morgan would also likely reprise their roles as the human counterparts to their respective avatars.

In an interview with Collider in June, Kevin also gave no indication that the existing cast and crew would not return. “For us to recreate the Jumanji world and have that success, it’s monumental,” the comedian said. “You don’t walk away from that. We have no interest in walking away. It’s about the timing.” He added, “We’ve all kind of taken on some other projects, so I think when things slow down for us and our commitments are out the way, we’re definitely going to revisit another one because there’s no reason not to.”

Hopsin – I Don’t Want It Lyrics

Play this song

[Intro]
This’ll prolly be the last song that I come out with for a while
I’m sorry to all my fans

[Verse 1]
I always think of Robin Williams, someone we loved and who we saw appealing
He made us all laugh as adults and children
Shit, all the millions that he had, I wonder what were his thoughts and feelings five minutes before the belt that cut his breath off and killed him
Prolly something like my thoughts now
What goes up has gotta fall down
I guess I’ll pour it all out ’cause right now, the reapers in the room visiting
So if I do leave, at least you’ll know why I did it then
It started way back then when I was a kid at first
Niggas bullied me when they saw that I was an introvert
I was never cool, had no friends, no chicks would flirt
Every school year it’s like all my issues were getting worse
My whole life they was calling me corny; stupid
I never had a dad who was there to mentor me through it
Skateboarding was my escape, it wasn’t just for amusement
My issues kept reoccurring so I would resort to music
I’d vent about the burdens that were sitting in my heart
I’d vent about the way I fell from swimming with the sharks
My mom was always working, so our bond was stripped and ripped apart
Ain’t no fucking family memories, ain’t no pictures at the park
Then I thought, “The world is about to see Hell come
And I’ma live the good life everyone else wants”
And in that moment my tears dried and I felt numb
Then years later I blew up, the mission was well done

[Chorus]
I don’t want it no more
I don’t want it no more
No more (No, no, no, no, no, no)
I don’t want it no more (No, no, no, no, no, no)
I don’t want it no more
No more
I don’t want it no more (No more)
I don’t want it no more (No more)
No more (No more) (No, no, no, no, no, no)
I don’t want it no more (No more) (No, no, no, no, no, no)
I don’t want it no more (No more)
No more (No more)

[Verse 2]
Finally I was famous, people kissing my ass
I knew that I was only here ’cause it’s revenge from my past (It’s crazy)
Went from a loser in school who got the worst grades
To being praised for all my verses when I dispersed rage
I copped a whip, moved out the ghetto like, “Bye, haters”
Bought a brand new house with a bunch of white neighbors
Everyone started calling wanting like five favors
And guess what? All of it dealt with spending my paper
And I was nice, I’d give ’em cash, I’d show sympathy
I gave him some, him, and her, I’m just lending cheese
Now I’m just looked at like an ATM machine
If I don’t give my friends my money, shit, I’m the enemy
I had about a million new best friends that I just met
Some were plotting to build me a death bed
All because they kept on putting whack songs out that no one’s impressed with
So out of jealousy they’d diss me, you fucking guessed it (Ha)
At least I had my squad; Jarren, Dizzy, Hoppa, SwizZz
I knew we’d stick together, stuck in this chaotic biz
We had it all figured out and had a lot to give
It was Funk Volume for life, who want a problem, bitch?
Then all the sudden, out of nowhere we parted ways
2016 – those were some of my darkest days
Ask us all, “Whose fault was it?” Ain’t hard to say
But it was due to money and all of our bonds had started to fade
Months later, my girl told me she’s pregnant
This was something I never expected
Her and I weren’t on good terms at the time, man, it was hectic
And I was scared if she kept this baby I might regret it
Made me be concerned I had a fucking toxic relationship
Last thing we need is a fucking toddler to raise in it
Having a baby is great, but not as amazing when you got two parents who always fighting, hollering, breaking shit
Present day, all my people are gone
No real friends, just leeches around eating the crumbs
No family bonds, no FV, can’t be with my son
No fucking girlfriend, I swear I thought that she was the one
I feel alone and I struggle to get my fans what they want from me
I’m struggling to build this UP company
I’m begging on my fucking knees like, “God, please help me ’cause I can’t fucking breathe
I’m tryna smile, but pain is cutting deep
Show me that I’m more than just a rapper
Show me that this life that I’ve been working on is meant to be more than just a disaster”
I hope this message I’m sending is floating up above
Instead of focusing on fame, I should’ve focused on the love

[Chorus]
I don’t want it no more
I don’t want it no more
No more (No, no, no, no, no, no)
I don’t want it no more (No, no, no, no, no, no)
I don’t want it no more
No more
I don’t want it no more (No more)
I don’t want it no more (No more)
No more (No more) (No, no, no, no, no, no)
I don’t want it no more (No more) (No, no, no, no, no, no)
I don’t want it no more (No more)
No more (No more)

[Outro]
I gotta go find myself
I hope you all can understand

Jelly Roll & Struggle Jennings – Glitter

[Verse 1: Jelly Roll]
Living my life in the rear view
And I’m haunted by
My past and sometimes I just wanna die
I need to change my ways
Momma, I’m gonna try
But that’s a lie ’cause you heard me say that a thousand times
I say Lord please help me
’cause I’ve been living unhealthy
And the life that I’ve been living, Lord
Can I really be forgiven for?

[Chorus: Jelly Roll]
And I don’t wanna let you go
I think about you now everywhere I roll
Somewhere down the road, I lost my soul
And I know ’cause the glitter doesn’t mean it’s gold
And I don’t wanna hurt nobody
I just wanna let the truth be told
I don’t wanna hurt nobody
But I’m about to lose my self-control

[Verse 2: Jelly Roll]
And they ask me how I’m feeling
I’m somewhere between Hendrix and Robin Williams
Hide behind the tears of a clown
And the sound, of silence, it seems so loud
Would you just look at me now
When I take a shot of Crown
And wash this Percocet down?
Played the victim for too long
To justify my habits
Knowing everything I touch turns tragic

[Chorus: Jelly Roll]
And I don’t wanna let you go
I think about you now everywhere I roll
Somewhere down the road, I lost my soul
And I know ’cause the glitter doesn’t mean it’s gold
And I don’t wanna hurt nobody
I just wanna let the truth be told
I don’t wanna hurt nobody
But I’m about to lose my self-control

[Verse 3: Struggle Jennings]
I guess I’m narcissistic cause I’m trying to get it
Am I being selfish attempting to rid my life from the drama in it
See it was harder coming home than going in
Hard to understand this statement unless you came from where I’ve been
Why is it so difficult to do right
But so easy to sin?
Find the peace in losing to move on
From the chaos of the win
That demon in the mirror is still the saint that he portrays
So the songs of tomorrow borrow sorrows from today

[Chorus: Jelly Roll]
And I don’t wanna let you go
I think about you now everywhere I roll
Somewhere down the road, I lost my soul
And I know ’cause the glitter doesn’t mean it’s gold
And I don’t wanna hurt nobody
I just wanna let the truth be told
I don’t wanna hurt nobody
But I’m about to lose my self-control
