1. Not A Fan
Lil' Wayne has joined the ranks of disgruntled rappers who don't listen to rap anymore. First Kanye West, then Scarface coming flat out and saying "f*ck rap," now Weezy is saying he tunes out today's rap music.
Rap music is not the only thing Weezy is giving up. In his latest blog the "best rapper alive" admits that he has given up the syrup. [Watch Here]
I think Weezy should show more respect for his peers. If they didn't suck so bad his run at the top wouldn't be so exaggerated. Let's be real his greatness is somewhat a byproduct of a weak playing field. He's great, but never really faced any real stiff competition.
2. West Wing Style
While President-elect Barack Obama caught the nation's attention with his shirtless stroll through a Hawaii vacation resort this week, rapper Kanye West wants to help him put his shirt back on. The aspiring fashion designer told the UK's The Sun that he could definitely dress the President-elect for success. Well, for a night out in the club at least.
"I could design something for Obama to go to the club in. But I don't know if I'm ready for suits and stuff. Fashion is just my love. It's something that I want to do for the rest of my life. I picked my own outfit out in kindergarten."
See that's what makes Kanye, Kanye. He's so atypical. While most rappers are happy to be making songs about the first black president, Kanye is sitting around thinking about what Obama would look like in a Pastelle Apparel shirt. And you wonder why they say he's...
No word yet on the dress code of said club.
3. So Seductive
Ladies be warned, when 50 Cent is whispering sweet nothings in your ear after he's hit "it," you might not be able to hold him to what he said in a court of law. In response to the $50 million lawsuit his baby momma Shaniqua Tompkins filed for breach of contract, TMZ has reported that the rapper claims his conversations with Tompkins were "nothing more than pillow talk and romantic declarations of love."
"If I ever intended to make that kind of commitment to [Tompkins], I would have married her."
Ouch. I gotta agree with 50 on this one. We all know we say things we don't mean in the heat of the moment. Fellas, what kind of world are we living in where chicks are suing you for something you said seconds before you release the hounds?
4. Dame You!
As the "Everybody Hates Jay" tour continues one of the opening acts is blaming a headliner for getting him into this mess in the first place. The Originator a.k.a Jaz-O recently sat down with RD Radio and revealed that his relationship with Jay began to sour once Dame Dash (the tour's headline Jay-Z hater) came on the scene. [Watch Here]
"I can't necessarily put the blame on Damon Dash, but when Damon Dash stepped in the picture that's when everything sort of fell apart..."
And just in case anyone has forgotten how much Jaz-O has contributed to the game he ran down his illustrious resume on of all place "Hate Money Radio". The perfect outlet. [Watch Here]
"I'm the tutor and career launcher of Jay-Z, Source Money, Memphis Bleek, Chad Elliot, the list goes on..."
The tutor? Well, I guess that's a one hot rapper every ten year average. And that's so - LAAAAAAAME!
Honestly this whole riding against Jay agenda is pretty wack. Beefing with Jay is so not the move right now. In the end it comes off as, "a bunch of n*ggas acting like b*tches with big mouths."
5. Passion Of Christ
The holiday season is upon us and Diddy is feeling the spirit. Back from a vlog hiatus the music mogul dropped a few gems on us to ring in the holiday cheer. He's especially adamant that we honor Jesus Christ for Christmas and not take the politically correct way out, by wishing each other "happy holiday." [Watch Here]
"All of a sudden people just saying happy holidays. No, no, no no. It's Jesus Christ birthday. So it's merry Christmas. I don't care what religion you are, what denomination you are, give respect where respect is due..."
As if that wasn't enough he came back alongside his son Christian Combs and said a prayer for us. [Watch Here]
Diddy could certainly be one of them religious freaks on the low. We all remember what happened to that last dude that crossed him when it came to religion. Pop champagne ring a bell?
That's all from me folks. Hit me up at email@example.com for a healthy back and forth.
