1. Em-pire Strikes Back
When Mariah Carey spoofed Eminem in her video for her single "Obsessed," I'm sure she didn't bank on the real Eminem retaliating with a song that threatens to expose her in way we've never seen before. No stranger to conflict with pop stars Em got this conflict started by insulting Carey on his record "Bagpipes From Baghdad" now he's looking to end it with the ferocious diss record "Warning". He said, "the only reason I dissed you in the first place was because you denied seeing me. Now I'm pissed off. And this is what pissed of sounds like." [Audio Here]
"Mariah it ever occur to you I still have pictures of you/however you prefer to do and that goes to Nick too/ you f*ggot you think I'm scurred of you/You going to ruin my career you better get one/ like I'm going to sit and fight with you over some slut bitch cunt.
Ouch. Remember that mom and pop Mariah sang about in "Obsessed?" Well, it's banging on the corporation's door and somebody better answer that sum-a-b*tch. Nick Cannon! Come out, come out, where ever you are.
Kind of feel sorry for poor Nick. Ever date that chick that's always starting some sh*t everywhere you take her? She'll cuss out the bouncer at the club, then turn to you and say "you going to let him talk to me like that?" That's Nick's predicament right now. He tried to defend his wife initially then wisely retracted. So his wife took matters into her own hands and now he's right back in it. Nothing left to do but defend your woman's honor. Go in homie! Em ain't what he used to be! Get' em!
SMH. *under my breathe* Em going to beat the boy like a drum.
2. Dead Wrong
Only Tupac Shakur, the grandmaster of modern rap beef, would be able to drop a diss record from the grave that grabs everyone's attention. This week Pac's unreleased record "War Gamez" dissing Jay-Z, Dr. Dre, Nas, Mobb Deep hit the net and everyone was buzzing.
"N*ggas playing deadly motherf*cking war games," Pac says in the intro. "How many broke down rappers got some sh*t to say...I bust on Bad Boy, Mobb Deep and murder The Firm/When you scream 'fake thugs' who the f*ck you mean/Get more C.R.E.A.M. than all of y'all/N*gga f*ck your team/Now Dre wanna switch sides/Tricks hide in war/Last year I shed tears but I don't cry no more/Plus Jay-Z tried to play me/He won't last long/Go ask King Sun how it feel to have your a** gone...Got shot five times, got outta jail on bail and sold five million. Sold more records than all you trick motherf*ckers put together. More than The Firm, more than Bad Boy, murdered Mobb Deep, more than all you b*tch made n*ggas."
Note the line where Pac says Jay-Z wouldn't last long. Of course he's referring to the fact that Jay-Z dissed him on the remix to Shai's 1995 record "I Don't Wanna Be Alone". Jay rapped, "you got beef with Jigga say my name." I'll assume this unreleased track was Pac's response to that line. While Tupac was correct in saying he sold more records than all the artist combined at the time, he was definitely off on Jay's career prediction. 14 years and millions of records sold later, Jay is arguably the best that ever did it. No worries Pac, we ain't mad at cha. If you were around, Jay's career turn might have had a different outcome. Guess we'll never know.
3. More Drama
In another case of reheated beef, Young Jeezy rehashed his old problems with DJ Drama in the current issue of XXL magazine. While it wasn't "F*ck Drama" Jeezy's comments made clear that there is no chance we?ll see another Gangsta Grillz collaboration from the two.
"Drama just started acting like a bitch. Drama wanted to be Khaled, but he didn't want to help nobody. He just changed, period. Look at his crew. The same niggas ain't around him. You ain't never been in no streets. I could never have no beef with a nigga like that. He's a cornball. You made millions off my mixtapes, to the point where the fuckin' feds scooped you up for bootlegging. I never even made the money he made off of Trap or Die or Tha Streetz Iz Watchin, because they were selling and distributing them and making money. I'm not hating. But we will never do a mixtape together. I didn't charge that nigga for [contributing a verse to the song "5000 Ones," on Drama's official Atlantic Records debut]. But then when I need [a tape for one of my artists], and you want to charge me $20,000?... I'll slap the shit out of Drama. He knows that. He wasn't loyal. But me putting my hands on that man ain't gonna make him respect what I'm saying. I'm just not gonna fuck with him anymore. I kept a lot of real niggas off his ass. There's a lot of niggas mad at that nigga 'cause he didn't do what he was supposed to do. He shouldn't take people's money if he not gonna do what he say."
LOL@ "I'll slap the sh*t out of Drama." If I were Jeezy, I'd probably wait to see how much Rick Ross has to pay out for two piecing deejay turned journalist DJ Vlad, before I put my hands on Drama. It'd be wise to see what's the going rate for backhanding a DJ first.
4. Broken Promises
A great man once said, "all I got is my word and my balls and I don't break them for nobody." I guess The Game doesn't follow the words of the great Tony Montana. The Compton rapper reneged on a previous pledge to call a cease-fire with 50 Cent and G-Unit.
At the beginning of the month The Game promised he was done beefing with his arch enemy 50 Cent. Following the death of music icon Michael Jackson the rapper was remorseful about the conflict and vowed to end it. Well that truce lasted three weeks. At a show in Amsterdam The Game broke his promise and dissed 50 and G-unit.
"G-Unot!," Game shouted to an Amsterdam crowd at his concert last week. "G-Unit still don't get no love, f*ck them. F*ck 50. F*ck Banks. F*ck Yayo. There's only three n*ggas left, when I'm done, it's gonna be nobody. GGG GGG GGG-Unot!!! GGG-Unot! GGGG-Unot! GGG-GGG-GGGG-Unot! F*ck G-Unit!" (Forbez DVD)
No surprise here. The Game is the most schizophrenic rapper out. Only thing left for him to do is start beefing with himself. But before he gets to that he'll probably have to deal with Max B first. The incarcerated rapper took aim at Game for allegedly stealing his style. Hiphopstan.com reported that Max isn't happy to hear The Game using his "wavy" term without giving him his just due.
"I'm not hearing no homage, n*ggas is d*ck sucking. I'm gone, it's like they happy. They can finally use the slang without me riding on 'em. You know when I ride on a n*gga it's uncomfortable. N*ggas is using my slang, it ain't nothing, they know where it came from."
First of all, why is this dude using his phone time to complain about The Game? Doesn't he have friends and family to talk to? Second, he should know the rap game is the same as the crack game. You get sent away your corners and everything you claim is up for grabs. Your vacant spot gets filled, homie. Now lights out n*gga! Go read a book or something.
5. Man To Man Talk
In an effort to spare men around the world the financial wrongdoing that Nas faces in his current child support settlement with Kelis, Method Man and Redman offered some relationship advice to the fellas. Check out the second part to the interview where they previously ranted about the judge's order for Nas to pay Kelis $44k a month. [Watch Here]
Redman: Guys out there, Watch your spouse before you get married. Make sure she loves you and if you gotta make that b*tch sign a pre-nup. Make that b*tch sign a pre-up. That ring changes everything! Method Man: It's that old saying "A Woman Scorned". And then they start sitting around and their girlfriends start getting in their ears and sh*t which is bad off top. Women, Like ya'll said, if you are independent show and prove. Get on your [grind] just like these dudes do. If you don't want to be with that man anymore, move on. Any real man is going to take care of his seed regardless. You don't have to go to the courthouse and tell them, ?" want this much". That's a rook move. That's robbery. That's some calculated bullsh*t.Listen to Eminem's Mariah diss, "Warning," below:Method Man: [Fellas] Watch how you put that ring on your finger. Make sure that b*tch love you before you put that ring on your finger.
EZ Street: How do we figure it out? How do we know it's real?
Redman: Just don't marry the b*tch.
Method Man: If you met your woman in the club, giving a lap dance. That's how you know. You don't want to marry the b*tch!
I guess this is what you do when no one is listening to your album. I'm down with Team Nas, but I can't support these two cats as the reps for the squad. We need someone like Eddie Murphy, who pays like $50k a month to Scary Spice for the couple's daughter. Even Eddie knows this isn't a laughing matter.
