Pulse Report: 50 Cent Builds & Destroys G-Unit, Lil Wayne's Street Credibility Upgraded, Dr. Dre & Ice Cube Resurrect The West
Friday, Apr 9, 2010 11:20AM
In this week's Pulse Report, doggies, we fall back to yesterweek and watch 5-0 Cent miraculously build and destroy his G-Unit empire, take a minute and realize Lil Wayne's a** really IS doing time, feel the West Coast heat courtesy of Dr. Dre and Ice Cube and oh SOHH much more!

1. Build & Destroy
You know, this sh*t is funny because no matter how many times I attempt to swat these f*cking 5-0 Cent stories, they keep bringing themselves to me. How can the wackest and most over-played rapper in RAP keep on getting y'all's attention? Honestly, before the infamous B-u-l-l doggy gets this sh*t kicked off, explain to me why a rapper who has yet to make credible music that's commercially successful and as street respected as much as his underground sh*ts like "Wanksta" and "Rider Part 2" and takes b*tch a** alternate routes with his rap beefs like the Tia Kemp sh*t or the ThisIs5-0 bogus a** PhotoShop attempts, how doggies, can y'all even click on anything with his imprint? SMFH. Aight, enough of my b*tching, let's get this sh*t started off correct. 5-0 Cent destroying G-Unit? Lloyd Banks and Tony Yayo sitting at home playing Connect Four while 5-0 is out in Europe looking for "new" members? LMFAO:
"It's interesting because [Lloyd Banks and Tony Yayo] probably won't be coming with me. In the U.S., Banks has momentum with the first single off his new album, 'Beamer, Benz or Bentley.' So he'll be out [on his own tour] with H.F.M. 2 (The Hunger For More 2). While he's doing that, it probably wouldn't make sense for Yayo to come with me because his record is almost done now -- he should use that time to complete his record and release it shortly after. But I'll be running around. You'll see new faces, because I'm looking for new artists now. I'll sign new artists and take them with me and kinda groom them. I don't specifically say, 'I want this kind of artist' -- I look for talent that inspires me, that complements what I do with their own thing. Some of the stuff you can't teach a person; they gotta have it. Robert Pattinson. He has a big enough following to be the frontline. 'Twilight' ain't no joke."
^ And I ain't laughing, doggy. The sad part about this sh*t is 5-0 doesn't even know when to gracefully bow out. Y'all remember when I said he should have just taken that 2007 defeat from Kanye West and made us want to hear him again? Well, now sh*t got f*cked up and look, Young Buck ain't never going back to G-Unit again. SMFH:
"I get my money with or without the G-Unit," Buck said in a video. "It will never be me amongst that again. We can just negotiate about me going about my business and him getting his percentage with the albums, but as far as me -- nah, I'm gonna ride my own...I just look at [my time over there] as a hard learning experience, I'm using it as a stepping stone at this point and I'm moving forward. I'm not even dedicating energy towards that sh*t. I'm so focused on Cashville Records and getting to a better place -- he's playing the game doing what he's doing, and I'm doing what I'm doing...This is an exclusive -- think about this, if 50 signed Beanie Sigel, if Beanie Sigel signed [to] 50 Cent, then what if Jay-Z signed Young Buck?"
LMFAO. D*mn, I gotta give Buck props for saying some slick sh*t like that. It was so slick that NO ONE actually cared enough to do the bogus a** "YOUNG BUCK SIGNING TO ROC NATION?" fake stories or even have @TwitterDoggies going nuts for some wild sh*t. But after seeing what Buck said, as a new artist, would you want to really sign with 5-0 Cent? Yeah, he said the artists f*cked themselves up but let me tell y'all, I've been f*cking with M.O.P and Mobb Deep since I was p*ssing my pants in daycare and they go hard with their music so how do they get dropped/leave G-Unit? It was their fault? SMFH. Sad fact is much like M.O.P said sometime last year, they were on a sinking ship and no one can help them
Southside, Jamaica Queens Manhattan boys anymore. Sh*t, even Fat Joe is saying it's a wrap for 5-0.
"As far as I'm concerned, [50 Cent] had one hot album, and his first album was a classic and that's it. After that everything else was bubble gummed down. So Drake, I think he will outlast 50 Cent. If you talk about 50 Cent on top really making hot music it didn't even last two, three, four years."
Y'all can say what you want, but Joe has a point. Even if you're a 5-0 Cent supporter, are you as excited to hear his new sh*t? No bullsh*t doggies, are y'all? Let's say are you more excited to hear new music from Nas, Jay-Z, sh*t, even Fat Joe than 5-0 Cent? I think y'all see where I'm going with this. At the end of the day, everybody has seen this sh*t before, it's like a broke down version of what 5-0 was trying to do from 2005-2007 by building up the brand. Hot Rod, 40 Glocc, G-Unit Philly? It's a f*cking shame because the fame came too fast for him to handle it and then when there's internal beefs going on and you're jealous of your artists getting more attention than you? Sh*t doggy, you lost one, two, three and more.
2. The Longest Yard
No bullsh*t doggies, I got a confession to bring up with y'all. I really have changed my views on Lil Wayne over the past week. It's not that I never liked the little guy, but f*ck it, I thought his a** was just getting over-exposure and wasn't even getting the f*cking time behind bars, it was all the "Sentencing delayed" and "Blah Blah Blah thinks Wayne's time is Blah Blah Blah" so I just kept hating him. But after all the sh*t that's popped off in the past week, this doggy is actually someone I got respect for, believe it or not. Yeah, some of y'all f*ckers are probably thinking I'm seeing the sh*t a** backwards since he's "ONLY" doing months for having a pistol on him in NEW YORK of all places but for any RAPPER, and y'all know how I feel about RAPPERS, to actually take that sh*t and say f*ck it, let's start this b*tch, has won me over. Well, let's first get an update on what's popping off in the clink.
"Wayne has a job -- they got him on suicide watch for other prisoners," his ex, BET reality star Antonia "Toya" Johnson, told Us' Ian Drew during an office visit Tuesday. "He watches the crazy prisoners and makes sure they don't kill themselves. He likes the job even though they don't pay him much."
^ Laugh it up all y'all want doggies, but that sh*t is pretty legit. Even if he is in protective custody, Weezy is actually SERVING his time and not f*cking some made-up prisoner guard, LMFAO, but making sure y'alls' long-lost family members ain't hanging themselves from the family tree. Sure, this sh*t might be sugarcoated and just be taken and blown out of proportion by the media, but the fact this "rap star" is actually being put to work and doing something other than sitting in a cell smoking kush and trying to figure out who the f*ck Kat Stacks is, they really got chores going down with him. And sh*t, if y'all can't give him some street cred for that sh*t, then let Baby tell y'all why it ain't even needed:
"He been locked down a month," Birdman said in an interview. "Seven more to go. You know he's built for that. We been around convicts and killers all our life. We from New Orleans...That's what the No Ceilings [mixtape] is about. Paradise on Earth. That's how we living. Sh*t. YM/CMB, we built to last. That's what makes us. That's what we built on. That's just a nap. But when he comes home, best believe, big money poppin'. Big money sh--. Moolah!"
^ LMFAO. Oookay Birdie, we gotcha on that sh*t. LMFAO. But on the other front, Wayne is actually getting his type-game proper and sending some real sh*t through a new website? Oh sh*t, Weezy blogging? LOL.
"I'm in good spirits man, for real. My kids race through my mind all day. They know they were created with love, so love is how their life will be defined. I just hope my love and adoration for them provides a temporary bandage on a wound I unknowingly inflicted on them. Real soon, you can catch me blogging for ESPN again thank you espn for not letting my passion for sports perish. I work out a lot because it helps pass the time. I read the Bible everyday. Jail didn't make me find God, He's always been there. They can lock me up, but my spirit and my love can never be confined to prison walls."
^ D*mn, doing time in jail and you'd think this motherf*cker was Hancock or some sh*t the way he's being missed. SMFH. Go ahead though Wayne, I'm officially f*cking with you lil' man. And you know you got the streets f*cking with you when some random a** doggy has the nerve to call himself your own personal CAMERAMAN, LMFAO!!!!!, and say he's got some Canal Street bootleg a** footage he's shopping to your favorite networks! SMFH:
"A media network like HBO could have the best impact because they won't try to censor it," DJ Scoob Doo said in an interview. "They push the envelope of what they show. You could just imagine what I could have just being with the team, and being with Wayne on his countdown to jail -- and even when he didn't know he was going to jail. Ever since [the mixtape,] No Ceilings came out, and even before that, it's a lot of sh*t that I'm trying to catch people up with behind the scenes in what's goin' on."
LOL. No bullsh*t, Wayne's bench players ain't gonna be able to get it done, sorry Drake and Nicki Minaj fans, but with Drizzy's release date looking to get more push-backs than Cedric the Entertainer's hairline and Nicki with a horrible a** debut single to an album without a f*cking TITLE, SMFH, yeah doggies, expect the streets to come alive again when Weezy gets out. Til then, let's ride out:
3. The Wild, Wild, West
The only bad part about writing this Pulse Report column for y'all doggies is when I have to submit this in by 8 AM in the morning every Friday and some big a** sh*t pops off at 8:01 AM after I hit the SEND button. SMFH. F*ck it though, y'all have been f*cking with me since the jump, why let something like that f*ck up a posting. The West Coast is alive but it's not thanks to Nipsey
Hu$$le Hussle or even Game's delayed a** album AND "400 Barz" (SMFH), but it's all to the likes of the "OG's" of the game, Dr. Dre and Ice Cube. Some of y'all might be kinda tight about it and think I'm blowing sh*t out of proportion, mainly b/c y'all know I don't think "Detox" will ever really come out, but the reason these two are single-handedly bringing out The West is b/c you have the best of both worlds. Whether we want to admit it or not, Dr. Dre ain't f*cking 2002 Dr. Dre where he was into the beef sh*t with Jermaine Dupri, Ja Rule, etc., he's a grown a** man headed 100 miles and running to 50 years of age, so he's doing that commercial, hype sh*t. On the flip side though, you got Ice Cube who is getting gully as a motherf*cker lately and seems to not really give a f*ck. Let's start with Dre first.
"The new song Dre has in his pocket," Jimmy Iovine said when asked to choose a Red Sox player's home plate song. "It's called 'Under Pressure,' it's a brand new single by Dr. Dre and Jay-Z. That's the song I would use."
^ Kinda confusing for y'all who didn't follow, but basically Mr. Interscope Records revealed that Doc put in some work with Hovi and they got some sh*t dropping today, right @NahRight? Anyway, they must have been doing some wild a** promotion b/c Dre jumped the f*cking gun and even said the Detox would be coming out in
"Yes, hopefully we'll be releasing ['Under Pressure'] in the next two weeks or so," Dre said in an interview referring to his Jay-Z collaboration. "And I'm definitely gonna be putting the album out this year. Finally, you know, and I think everybody is gonna be happy with it. That's it right now. I'm just trying to finish thisrecord, finally get it done, get it out and start promoting it."
F*ck, if y'all lucky b*stards get to hear this sh*t before I do, then enjoy it b/c there is no WAY this sh*t can be bad. Y'all remember this?
Oh sh*t! So Dre got the attention off T.I. in the South being "freed" (SMFH) but he couldn't hold the sh*t down too long b/c Ice Cube just had to keep his subliminal a** sh*t popping off. LOL.
"There's been a gang of motherf*ckers talking sh*t about your boy Ice Cube," he told fans at a Paid Dues concert. "I love it though -- I got a message to the new emcees in the house right now...You can't diss Dr. Dre. You can't diss Eazy-E. You can't diss Ice-T. You can't diss King Tee. No, you cannot diss Ice Cube. No, I ain't going for it. And any of you young motherf*ckers that do want to diss, I got one thing to say before you do it. You better check yourself before you wreck yourself."
^ LMFAO. No disrespect to y'all Cube fans, but how are you gonna say some hard sh*t like that and then do some corny a** better check yourself? LMFAO. Cube musta lost himself in a Boyz N The Hood moment. But one of the dopest sh*ts I came across was this "Kool Aid" sh*t with Cube going all the way in on some of y'alls' favorite rappers. Intentional, not intentional, who gives a f*ck? We can spot subliminals a mile away:
In the new track "Drink The Kool Aid, it's not only the "New West" that placed that chip on Ice Cube's shoulder but apparently Jay-Z, Eminem, Lil Wayne and Kanye West have pissed off the O.G. It ain't "No Vaseline" but the blade is still sharp...
D*mn, d*mn, double d*mn. The West is still nothing to f*ck with.
4. Jae Millz Will Never Pop: Reloaded
LMFAO. At this point, I should have just ignored it and did a posting on Nicki Minaj addressing the "b*tches" or her "sons," but f*ck it, why let Jae Millz have the opportunity to run his f*cking mouth and not give them XXL Freshmen an equal chance to get sh*t off their chests? LMFAO. Freddie Gibbs doing a diss at Jae? Wiz Khalifa calling Millz out on some sucker sh*t at "its finest?" LMFAO! Hold the f*ck on, KAT STACKS EXPOSING THE B*TCH IN JAE MILLZ????!!!!! LMFAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! But even better, Jae Millz trying to make his arrest last week sound like some g-sh*t?!?!?! LMFAO!!!!!!! This is a 1-2 punch knock-out doggies, no commentary, just read and see!
Freddie Gibbs vs. Jae Millz: Undecided
"Keep a fully automatic and a .45," Gibbs raps, "I, never worry about a n*gga when I'm at the crib/Wanna hit me with the steel, you know where I live/Bring it to my front door if you real, these h*es don't want it with the kid -- can't let one of y'all b*tch n*ggas check it/Give a f*ck about a motherf*cker talking reckless/When you send me a shot, I'll get the message -- and ain't nobody in my hood listening to Jae Millz. Not at all."
Wiz Khalifa vs. Jae Millz: Wiz
"Man, sucker sh*t at its finest, dawg" Wiz told radio personality Mr. Peter Parker. "Sucker sh*t at its finest. And the n*gga tried to like, clear it up like 'Wiz Khalifa is people's I do respect,' you need to say the names dawg. Like, you need to say them names. You need to clear that up because n*ggas are upset about that. I'm not personally mad about it but it's like, if you're gonna do that, you gotta go all the way with it. And a couple n*ggas stepped up and said something, n*ggas who got following because I got like 90,000 followers on my Twitter and I spoke up on it because I'm not for the f*ck sh*t, dawg. N*ggas do this fly music and n*ggas have that fun sh*t but I'm not for the f*ck sh*t so if you gonna say some sh*t, and I'm not the type to be beefing, but you got to say something. You got to say them names dawg. And really figure out who you f*ck with and don't f*ck with because you might start some problems."
Kat Stacks vs. Jae Millz: Late decision, Kat
"Well that last video, I was pissed off because Jae Millz had called child services on me because he's the only one who knows my real address so I knew it was him. So I got pissed off and I started writing it on Twitter and then my account got suspended so I just called World Star Hip Hop and said I want to make another video and give this motherf*cker's address out since they was trying to take my child away...I've heard they got a price out for my head, I've already moved so if anything happens to me they'll know who to go to first."
Jae Millz vs. Jae Millz: TKO
"Cops pulled me over in Jersey as I was leaving my crib and I had just changed all my clothes in a rush, and I left all my stuff in the pockets of my other jeans. I was speeding, I was on the phone and I did an illegal turn, so once he asked me for my license that I didn't have, it was over."
Jae Millz will never blow, pop or take-off. End of story. Bum a** sh*t at the end of the day but there's nothing I could even say that the Freshmen kids didn't already say, so just as long as you up-and-coming old a** rappers who have resorted to leaving your own region and attaching yourself to any rapper that will let you be in their entourage, ALWAYS be humble and never sh*t on anybody.
5. "STFU" Honors
Once again it's time to highlight the best "SHUT THE F*CK UP" quotables from the past week and there are some definite unanimous decisions courtesy of
Young Jeezy and even, LMFAO, DMX's wife? SMFH. Look doggies, if you ever make it famous, and we ain't talking 1,000 views on YouTube videos, please try to not get caught up in the moment and say some stupid a** remark that's gonna either make you look dumb b/c you're overly confident or just have you looking stupid. Don't believe me? Have a look yourself:
1. Nicki Minaj
"You know what, I'm a female entertainer," Nicki clarified, "but I don't let it offend me when people call me a female MC or female rapper, because I just look at it as a challenge...I don't think in five years people will consider me a female rapper."
"I might be Makaveli on this sh*t, like I just don't give a f*ck what I say...love me or hate me that's where I'm at. That's my whole mind state. And believe you, me, music is an expression of yourself."
3. DMX's Wife
"It's not a tell-all," Simmons promised in an interview. "I want to clear that up. It's a memoir, it's a story about our life, my life and our life together...I think reading my book, it explains everything. I'm talking about everything, from when we first met at 11 and we got together from 18 and I'm starting from there until then on...It's a positive tell-all."
4. DJ Woogie On Soulja Boy
"You know, Soulja Boy has grown since the time he did 'Crank Dat' to now...He's grown a lot. He's learned a lot more about the rap game and [has] said that himself in some of his raps. He said that he learned more, and people thought he was wack. He became more versatile."
"Trust me, no one's competition for me and that sounds cocky but I seriously live in such an Eve world. And not in a crazy-everything-is-me-bubble, it's just that I'm bulding an empire."
***Don't be mad, doggies, because we just barely touched spring and I'm already telling y'all it's gonna be a hot f*cking summer! On some side sh*t, I really want to give y'all shout-outs for f*cking with E-40's new sh*ts, they both made it on the Sound Scan and that's saying a lot. But other than that, this rap game is starting to impress me lately, with 5-0 Cent looking down the alley of the end of his career and Lil Wayne actually blogging from jail. Sh*t is crazy when you think about it, it's about d*mn time we also got to anticipate some new music, like this Dr. Dre and Jay-Z sh*t or even what Ice Cube is trying to get out of subliminal dissing y'alls' favorite RAPPERS. Rap is looking promising, for once. Y'all enjoy the weekend, doggies!***
