In this week’s Pulse Report, we’re going to check out 2 Chainz getting left for dead in a botched robbery attempt, get an upclose look at the woman who claims to have slept with Kanye West, shake our heads at an O.G. hating rap veteran and oh SOHH much more.

1. No Lie
LOL!!! I’m sorry, I know there are a lot of 2 Chainz fans out there this week that have had to shut their mouths and hope this bad press went away ASAP. There’s no lying about what took place in San Francisco, of all places, involving the one and only 2 Chainz and some grumpy, skippidy-yippidy doggies out there in Cali. Let’s skip all of the recollecting and jump right to the footage showing what wetn down and doggy’s security guard’s explanation:
“We went downtown to San Francisco — it’s broad daylight, like 4:30 in the afternoon. People were walking around and everything — all of a sudden three dudes just jumped out with huge guns, .357 Magnums. They pointed the guns at us and we was like ‘Whoa!’ We thought it was a joke for a minute. We looked at them, we stopped, kinda paused. We thought it was a joke. Then all we heard was, ‘2 Chainz give it up.’ So we like stood there and didn’t do anything, and we kinda like froze, ’cause we wanted to see if this was real. All of a sudden, the next thing you know, 2 Chainz kinda like backed up a little bit. And then he said, ‘Give it up. Give it up.’ And then all of a sudden he took off. He took off running first. When he took off running, we took off running. Then all of a sudden these dudes, they just start shooting. I don’t know where they shot at.” (Power 107.5)
And then what?
“TMZ got it all like we just left and left him standing there, and we just took off. But he started running first, and we took off after he took off. So I don’t know what they trying to make it seem like. The bottom line is he just fell, the dude he grabbed his wallet from him, and his cell phone from him, and that’s all they took. He has his chains on him, his bracelet and all that, and all his jewelry with him and they ain’t touch none of that. All they did is they got his wallet, and like I said, he ain’t got no money in his wallet. The bottom line is, man, it was a setup. We know it was a setup so, that’s why he told the police we will handle it.” (Power 107.5)
That’s bad, y’all. I don’t care what you want to say, that’s bad. So you’re telling me the worst case situation is that there was somebody in 2 Chainz’s circle that helped set this all up? For the record, the way 2 Chainz hit the ground running AND fell, yeah, y’all know he wasn’t expecting that to go down. The worst part is seeing him lead the way? What big rapper do you know, that rolls with a crew, actually is first in line while out in public? LOL!!! Best thoughts and hopefully Chainz will be able to laugh about this one day too, until then, there’s a conspiracy out there.
2. The Other Woman
Just for the record, I honestly do not care if Kanye West cheated on Kim Kardashian. I know that sounds pretty heartless, but when you think about it, we all put too much attention into what “celebrities,” especially rich ones, are doing with their personal lives. And before you go off saying, “Bulldog Butters, you’re a scumbag!,” just remember that even your parents have probably cheated, and if you were raised by a single parent, you can pretty much assume that’s one of the reasons why. LOL. The one “good” thing I’ll say that came out of all these allegations is the Honorable Mention Mrs. Butterworth that made me want to go out to Canada sometime this summer. LOL. I can’t spell her name, and that’s all right, all you need to do is feast your eyes on what Kanye “may” have smashed:
CHECK PLEASE! Once again, I could really care less if Ye smashed it or not, but that’s a beautiful sight. SMH.
3. Moment of the Week: Dres Goes Off On KimYe
I know there’s a lot of doggies that view me as an extreme hater. For the record, we’re mid-way through Pulse Report and I have not made a single reference to that wack doggy by the name of 5-0 Cent. LOL. Oops. Anyway though, y’all think I’m a real hater just for expressing some not-so-friendly views on other doggies, but I’ve always done it in a somewhat distinguished way. This doggy by the name of Dres, from Black Sheep, should really be your definition of “HATER.” Not only does he make a ridiculous accusation that Kanye’s gay, but he goes on to call a pregnant woman a whore? WTF!? In most cases I would applaud that, but he really touched on some serious issues, from homophobia to mixed relations. When you look at everything Kanye’s done for hip-hop and culture in general, and you go to this low? That’s so bad you gotta get the spotlight for being a certified dumba**.
“Kanye… like Steve Jobs… is one of the most powerful gay men in the world…. God Bless Him,” Dres tweeted June 12th.
“oh… he’s not out yet…. my bad…. lmao”
“cmon y’all… i’m playin…. Steve Jobs wasn’t gay….”
“Kanye West does not like black people….,” Dres tweeted June 13th.
“drops mic.. makes coffee”
“besides not being crazy bout his music… i don’t agree with the message he sends our people.. at all… I hoped him to be a better artist”
“and having a child with the biggest media whore of our generation.. literally and figuratively… what a horrible message to young ladies”
^ SMFH. NO COMMENT. Actually, just one. If you’re not even remotely offended by his words, shame on you.
4. Mrs. Butterworth: Tiffany Foxx
I don’t care what any of y’all have to say, I got a crush on Tiffany Foxx. Blame it on me being a Bronx, New York doggy that always had to settle for New York or East Coast girls, but something about that little St. Louis, Misouri hottie has me blazing. I look at it like this, back in 2008 no one was even checking for Nicki Minaj, right? Think about if you got to be one of her biggest supporters back then, there’s got to be some pay-off from that, whether it was her following you back on Twitter or knowing you’re one of those doggies that rode with her through the struggles. Well, I’m going to be that doggy for Tiffany Foxx. She can actually spit some bars too, but for now, let’s focus on those other ass-ets. LOL!
Lil’ Kim might not be producing hits like she used to, but she’s got something huge right here. I see you Tiffany!
5. Rappers Say The Darndest Things
Once again it’s on! LOL. I always wanted to start a conversation with that Jay-Z line. Anyway though, back to putting those select rappers back on blast for the silly things that came out of their own mouths. First, it has to go to Kanye West for going off on a paparazzo over being wished a happy birthday. Huh!? Ye’s one of the best rappers alive and has probably the most luxurious life we could only imagine, minus his mother passing, and he tells doggy to SHUT UP and DON’T EVER TALK to him? SMH. The next one has to go to 50 Cent‘s cousin. Doggy, you’re sitting on a 7-figure record deal? LOL! Yeah, you and V-Nasty. Unless 50 Cent had to co-sign, I don’t see that going down. We gotta go back to Kanye West, saying you don’t care about selling a million copies? C’mon Ye, either you’re shook about album sales or going crazy b/c if it wasn’t a big deal you would just release the album for free. Who are you kidding? And Waka Flocka Flame, I know you probably want to smash, but trying to stand up for Amanda Bynes is silly. No further comments on that. Lastly, Gucci Mane playing dumb about Selena Gomez but knowing she was linked to Justin Bieber? LOL! Gucci, it’s no shame in touching down on Gomez, she’s a grown woman despite her small stature. LOL.
Kanye West is grumpy … super, duper grumpers … and yesterday Mr. Grumperton took out his grumpiness on a really nice photog — and it was all caught on tape. Yesus was walking around NYC with his posse, when a photog — not one of ours — politely asked (from a safe distance) … “What’s good, Kanye?” Kanye’s response — “DON’T ASK ME QUESTIONS, MAN!” The pap said goodbye to KW … but then he made a fatal mistake — he wished Kanye a happy belated birthday!!! Kanye’s response — SHUT UP! DON’T EVER TALK! Where’s a good parking sign when you need one?
“Continental Five now has a seven-figure deal on the table,” radio host Star revealed. “It’s a 360 deal which may or may not be in line with how deals used to be structured but the young man is off and on his way. So I just wanted to point that out. We will be hearing from this young man, who I spoke to last week, and I had to grill him a little bit. He’s 50 Cent’s first cousin. Sounds like a stand-up dude. He wasn’t on no weird sh*t.”
“This is the part of the show when I start complaining about sh*t, justifying sh*t, but you know how it is,” he says as he let the menacing beat of “Clique” ride. ‘Ye continued to rant about the rollout of his album and his lack of care behind promotion and radio play: “With this album we ain’t drop no single to radio. We ain’t got no NBA campaign, nothing like that. Sh*t, we ain’t even got no cover. We just made some real music. Like, back when I used to make albums and sh*t, a couple years ago, we’d go away and work on the album for months or something. We’d always have to hold the album to like August, or September or till the perfect moment and sh*t. Because it mean that ‘I think would sell more if it get more audience and sh*t.’ But honestly at this point when I listen to radio, that ain’t where I want to be no more. Honestly at this point, I could give a f*ck about selling a million records as long as I put out an album for the summer that y’all can rock to for all f*ckin’ summer… At this point I don’t really give a f*ck about outside opinion.”
“To me, Amanda Bynes is like a confused kid that became an adult – that people couldn’t handle that she’s a woman, in my eyes.” Waka explained. “Having conversations with her, she kind of reminds me of me, you doing so good that people lash out at you. They forget all the right sh*t you doing. Instead of helping and showing a better way, they’re just killing her, downing her — pouring the negativity. I just feel like a couple of words could uplift a whole person’s approach to life, so that’s why I just put my little two cents in.”
“I don’t know why they made such a crazy cruel rumor. Cause I think she was dating Justin Bieber at the time. Really I don’t have no idea what was going on with Selena Gomez cause I only know her briefly from doing the Spring Breakers movie, and from what I know of her she’s a nice young lady. I don’t know her personally, I never dated her. I wish her the best, she’s a talented actor and a nice girl, but she and I never dated.”
