Pulse Report: Rick Ross Feels The Ice Wrath, Consequence Hearts Kanye West, 2Pac's Back
Friday, Sep 16, 2011 12:40PM
In this week's Pulse Report, doggies, we see that Rick Ross has bigger problems than Kreayshawn to worry about, question why Consequence's G.O.O.D. Music war hit a roadblock, welcome back 2Pac and oh SOHH much more!
1. Ice, Ice, Baby
SMH. Doggies, it's one thing to have Kreayshawn clowning you but when it comes to having some legendary doggies that's been in the game for a minute clowning you? SMH. That's a tough one to swallow. PAUSE. But let's back things up. Last time we checked, it looked like Kreayshawn had pretty much caught an L in her war of words with Rick Ross. I mean, dissing, then apologizing and then dissing again? I don't know about y'all, but where I'm from, that's called bi-polarness or as Puff Daddy would say, "B*TCHA**NESS" to the highest level possible. Turns out we got a little surprise when Rick Ross and them boys rolled up on Kreay and her manager, "STRETCH!" at the Video Music Awards. But did it stop there, doggies? LOL. Not quite!
He even threatens Kreayshawn, the fledgling Bay Area rapper who called Ross "fake" in a recent freestyle. "I can't wait to slap the sh*t out of whoever carries her bags," he sneers. "And I hope it's her n*gga. Dirty b*tch. You better know the f*ck you talking about. I'll pay 50K to mess up your whole week." (Karen Civil)
^ LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!! Doggies, are y'all reading what I'm reading? "I can't wait to slap the sh*t out of whoever carries her bags." LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!! That might be the quote of the day if y'all ask me. Now I know this is allegedly coming from the new XXL Magazine but doggies, are y'all kidding me????? LOL!!!!!!!!! And it didn't take too long before Kreayshawn apologized, AGAIN.....or did she?
"No, I bought DJ Khaled a couple steaks and we worked everything out," Kreayshawn said in an interview. "As far as that, nothing's popping off. It's just a little rough patch at the VMAs, but we got all over it. It's all over now...I feel like a comedienne at times, because I'm a funny down to earth person -- So some things that I do and say get read wrong because I'm not some label chick that randomly made it." (Urban World TV)
^ LOL!!!!! The funny thing is I don't know if she was joking or being serious. Buying Khaled some steaks? LOL. I'll put it like this. STOP FAILING. The whole Drake dating rumor fizzled, the N-Word drama was beyond lopsided and now this Rick Ross beef? SMH. Her career might be on the outs, doggies. I still remember when she got "Doggy of the Week" honors. SMH. But turns out Kreay wasn't the only doggy concerned with getting at Ross. How about some Ice, Ice, Ice-T?
"That's fake," Ice-T blurts out. "Rick Ross stole a n****'s name. I call him 'Identity Crisis.' He thinks he's [Freeway] Rick Ross, he thinks he's Larry Hoover, he thinks he's Big Meech, he thinks he's MC Hammer, he thinks he's Tupac. Like, who the f*ck are you really, dude?" Ice continues, "When we rapped about dope-- me, Snoop and everybody--it was like we doin' it because we GOT to. Now these n***** is actin' like it's somethin' that's FUN. It's so easy to fantasize about it. To actively do it? That's a whole 'nother f*ckin' thing. (Vh1)
^ LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wait, why should I even over hype this up doggies. I mean, we all remember the last beef Ice-T was in, right?
^ EXACTLY!!! NEXT! LOL!!!!!!
2. I'm So Sorry
WAIT! HOLD THE PHONE! WHAT!!?? Doggies, I'm never one to say embrace rather than kill the beef when doggies are going at one another but this Consequence thing? Are y'all kidding me? It took one phone call? Nah, ONE E-MAIL!!!????? LOL!!!!!!! FAIL, doggies! That's a real sucker move. For starters, Consequence was fighting a war that no doggy was paying any mind to. I'll give him Pusha T, but only b/c doggies kept asking him all those questions about him. But y'all point out one interview that Kanye was doing during that Watch the Throne promo where ANY, yeah doggies, ANY, doggy asked him, "So hey, what's up with Cons?" SMH. That's some real sucker stuff. I mean, doggy spends his entire year almost dissing with subliminals and then direct shots at Kanye? Y'all remember, almost one year ago to the day Cons was hyping up "G.O.O.D. Music Day." Remember? Now a year later and he's gone through these emotions and is all lovey dovey with Kanye? SMH. Nah.
"I got a couple of updates," Cons said in an interview. "Me and Kanye spoke. When you have a situation like we had, you know, it's emotional, it's tempers flying, it's a lot of people chiming in. You know what I'm saying? Whether you're referring to the bloggers, the fans, supporters on either side -- unfortunately when you see war, you see division. You know what I'm saying? It got to the point where I was just like, 'I'm gonna hit son one time and one time only and see where you're at with this. Is it going to be all the way turnt up.' ... So we spoke, well, I hit him and he hit me back with one of those all caps tirades. It was an e-mail. He was pissed and rightfully so and I was pissed and that's why things happened the way they happened but like I said, he spoke his piece, I spoke my piece. He told me he loved me. The feud is over with Kanye. Is the feud over with other people? See me in the streets." (RapFix)
^ What a wack doggy right there. I used to really roll with Consequence too with those "Good, Bad, Ugly" records and even illegally downloaded his first album. LOL. But WTF? You're going to brag about how the beef is over, THAT KANYE NEVER ADDRESSED OR ACKNOWLEDGED, and said he "loved" you via e-mail? Doggy. I still don't know how you missed "STFU" Honors, oh yeah, that's right, I wanted to give you this entire post so doggies could see what a cheap move you made. And then to say "see me in the streets?" DOGGY, YOU'RE A GROWN MAN! LOL! Telling y'all, these doggies need a wake-up call. Those Beef DVDs don't pop anymore. SMH.
3. Doggy of the Week: Tupac Shakur
Doggies, this was a no-brainer, right? How could any doggy get more shine than 2Pac this week? Not only that but on the 15th anniversary of his passing? For any doggy that knows me, I'll always admit it, "Never cried when Pac died, but I probably did when B.I.G. passed." In other words, Biggie will always be the G.O.A.T. in my eyes, that's just plain and simple but just like Tom Brady has all the rings but Dan Marino never got one, it's the same attitude I have. Yeah, Pac is a legend but he just didn't have that "thing" that made me put him over Biggie. Anyway, doggies, let's stay on topic. LOL. Pac's accolades this week came from Kurupt dropping gems on pre-famous Pac, learning how Pac was really on that gangsta tip, even at the Source Awards! LOL!!!!!!!!!! But if that's not enough, we see Game pay respect to Makaveli with his favorite records and the Outlawz drop an album on none other than Pac's birthday.
"What people don't know is that, me, Snoop Dogg and Daz Dillinger knew Tupac before we came to Death Row. We knew Pac before Poetic Justice [was released in 1993], but before I knew Pac personally, I knew his work. And Tupac -- I'm sorry my ni**a -- but ever since Digital Underground he's always been my favorite. It isn't because he's gone, either. His rhymes just [outdid] everybody's. I remember the track "Same Song", that was the first record that he ever really got to shine on."
^ I always have been a fan of those "VH1: Behind The Music" shows. Something about learning more about a doggy you've always respected has been cool. Whether it's learning that a doggy was picked on back in high school or that they were the school bully, it's hot. So seeing Kurupt giving the low-down on Pac and even admitting that he's his favorite rapper of all time? I can't co-sign but I can tip my hat to the honesty.
"I got an ill Pac story," Zino said in an interview. "When we was doing the first Source Awards, and Q-Tip was on stage, about to perform or he was about to receive an award or something, and I think Pac had already kind of had his dude -- snatch up the sound man and they threw their sh*t in and he went up on there and did, 'Out On Bail' with like eight, nine n*ggas. [What did Q-Tip do?] Them n*ggas ain't do nothing. I just remember that someone came back stage -- and one of them n*ggas was crying and it was like, 'Yo, it was f*cked up.' -- He did the whole sh*t. It wasn't planned or nothing. Them n*ggas went up there, grab the sh*t, did 'Out On Bail' and bounced."
^ LOL. Even though y'all doggies know I don't get down with Benzino, AT ALL (peep that "STFU" Honors today), I think this is a good video. I still don't know how much Zino knows about what really went down but either way, it's good to see that Pac really was about that "I DON'T GIVE A F" attitude even back in 1994. Way before Death Row, right, doggies? LOL.
Like Tupac, Compton native Game is never one to hold his tongue. His most recent outburst came at the expensive of one Jay-Z or "Uncle Otis" as he likes to call him. But aside from the thuggery and gangsta talk, Game also took influence from Pac's deeper side. VIBE was pleasantly surprised at his song selection when Game ran down his top-5 Tupac songs of all time. 1. "Brenda's Got A Baby" 2. "Keep Ya Head Up" 3. "Dear Mama" 4. "Thug Passion" 5. "Hit Em Up"
^ LOL! My fault, doggies, I still can't get over Jay-Z saying, "Tell groupie get over it." LOL!!! Anyway, one thing you have to say about Pac is that even with his death, he's inspired doggies that never really got a chance to hear his music and see his movies. Look at Soulja Boy, Bow Wow, etc. Yeah, y'all can say they were born but it's not until years later that they really tried getting on that Pac tip. Glad to see Game knows some real Pac records.
"The top reason why you should go get it is because I said so. E.D.I. Mean is telling you to go and get that album. September 13th. It's the perfect timing. What better way to mark the anniversary of my homeboy's death than by dropping something positive? This is a positive album from his homies. This is turning a negative to a positive. I would be lying if I said we wrote this out and went to execute it. We kind of just came together. We knew we wanted to do an album and we knew it was time to drop something new. We had done some independent little things but there hadn't been a full album from the Outlawz. So when we started recording, we were just doing songs. But then we did a song called "Perfect Timing" and that kind of sparked everything."
^ Doggies, if y'all told me I could get $500 for naming two of the Outlawz, the furthest I could go is Fatal Hussein. I know nothing about them but one thing is for certain, they ride and die to Pac. And if rumors are correct, they even smoked, or um, smoked "to" Pac. LOL.
4. Mrs. Butterworth: Kimbella
I'm sorry doggies, I really am. This is starting to feel like when Elliott Wilson was over at XXL Magazine and G-Unit/5-0 Cent was all over those issues. Well, let's not even say them G-Unit boys, but Interscope Records had those covers on lock. Think about it. Eminem, Dr. Dre, G-Unit, Lloyd Banks/Young Buck, 5-0 Cent, Tony Yayo and probably a grip more, oh yeah, D12, LOL, plenty. So I say that to say I'm sorry but Juelz Santana's baby mother KIMBELLA once again is in here. LOL. Can't help it, y'all count on me to bring y'all the hottest so enjoy this and embrace it. LOL.
SMH. That girl should be illegale in 50 states. LOL. And if that wasn't enough, doggies, much like always, enjoy some moving delights for your viewing pleasure. Sometimes seeing is really believing, and Kimbella proves that down here! LOL!!!!
5. "STFU" Honors
Doggies, it must be said. The inevitable must be understood. There will never be a week, days, 24-hour cycle, 60 minutes when some doggy in the world will be given the gas face and told, "Doggy, you need to SHUT THE F*CK UP." It happens more often than you think. We see it with YouTube beefs, bloggers, doggies in the comments section (I used to be one of them, doggies!), and everywhere in-between. This week? No exception. To say Lil Wayne and Rick Ross aren't close to Jay-Z or Eminem's level is more raw than Uncle Luke's old school videos. SMH. Or what about Jadakiss having the nerve to say "Ether" single-handedly crushed Jay-Z's "Takeover." SMH. Doggies, Jay MURDERED Nas in 16 bars, and still took the time to destroy Mobb Deep, for the time being, and handle some other business all within one song. Nas used an entire three verses to blast Jay after the fact. That ain't right. SMH. We might as well crown Benzino the title holder in here b/c once again doggy makes the cut with some sillyness about Royce Da 5'9. SMH. Then you get Lupe Fiasco killing himself on-stage not only by looking goofy but by calling Drake a legend? LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! But the doggy that steals the show? Freddie Gibbs. FYI, in the past five years, Young Jeezy's career has blossomed, Rick Ross has become a star, Kanye West dropped classics, Jay-Z came back, Nas held his own and Lil Wayne basically saved hip-hop with record sales alone. Yeah, doggies, y'all already know, welcome back to "SHUT THE F*CK UP" HONORS!
"Carol City native Ross has certainly evolved into a h*lluva lyricist. But he needs to do a song on his own that will stand the test of time like Biggie's "Juicy" or Tupac's "Dear Mama." The same can be said of Lil Wayne and Drake. I'd like to hear those two cats produce an album without a guest appearing on songs," Luke added. "Don't get me wrong -- Lil Wayne's lyrics are out of this world. But you can't just do one verse per song and then call yourself the greatest. That's bullsh*t...If Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, and Drake want to take that title from Jay-Z and Eminem, they need to carry albums on their own."
"I didn't really like the "Takeover" beat. But the words--you know what the words are! It's like the Declaration of Independence on the battle tip. What he's saying is crazy. I like the laaaaayyyyymmmmme part. It was heavy, but Nas' "Ether" sits on the mantle when it comes to battle songs. From the production, to the way he formatted it, to what he was saying--he touched everything. It was an A-Plus grade."
"I could release a couple songs and go at his head -- I probably will. But it's a chess game. When you battlin' these dudes, every move is a calcuated step. I'm just waitin' to see what happens. If they send a shot over, you can best believe I got missiles ready."
"When the young man came to my city, he brought me out on stage and said, 'Yo, this guy right here's a legend,' in my own city so I said, 'Thank-you. Thank-you Aubrey.' So I want to say it on his stage, in his city. Make some noise for one of the legends, hip-hop's finest. Make some noise for your hometown hero. Drake, ladies and gentlemen. I had to do that, return the favor."
"Rap lost its edge man. I don't wanna be a part of what's been goin' on in the past five years," Gibbs said in an interview. "I wanna be taboo. I want your parents to not want my music in your iPod. I want your mom to be scared of what I'm talking about because it's so real -- That's how it was when I was getting my first Geto Boys tape, my mom ain't want that in my tape deck. So I want your parents to be afraid of what I'm doing."
***Sorry about those outbursts throughout today's Pulse Report, doggies. LOL. Some things just don't make sense to a doggy like me. Ice-T going at Rick Ross? LOL. Doggies should have sent him the memo that dissing Ross stealing names is last year's hot topic. We off that. Anyway, it's NOW starting to get cold out here, so to any doggies hoping to come and see the Yankees march into the postseason and win a World Series or watch the Jets make that Super Bowl run, bring them NorthFace jackets! LOL. College football too, doggies. Y'all need to tell SOHH Bulldog Butters needs a sports blog on here. LOL. Catch y'all on Tuesday! --BB***
