Pulse Report: Fabolous Squeezes The Juice Outta Ray J, Amber Rose Can't Get Any Love, Rick Ross Barks Loud
Friday, Sep 23, 2011 12:15PM
In this week's Pulse Report, doggies, we experience quite possibly the most hilarious one-sided fight between Fabolous and Ray J, take a look at an Amber Rose story that flew under everyone's noses, take Rick Ross out of the dog house and oh SOHH much more!
1. Rayweather vs. The Fabolous John Jackson?
When the history books get written, there are three things that Ray J will be known for. One is being Brandy's LITTLE brother. Two is having quite possibly the most suspect ding-dong-featuring sex tape with Kim Kardashian. (Doggies, I couldn't even watch it b/c doggy put the camera on HIM the entire time. WTF!?!?!!? Last? Getting straight clowned by Fabolous in Las Vegas before/after the Floyd Mayweather, Jr. fight. LOL!!! Doggies. First off, for any of y'all that actually thought Ray J was pumping that Popeye spinach and going body-to-body with F-a-b-o are d-u-m-b d-o-g-g-i-e-s! LOL! But speaking of some sucker punches, maybe he sucker punch COULD have went down but to the extent. Wait, wait, wait. Let's start from square one.
It seems Floyd Mayweather and Victor Ortiz wasn't the only two shooting the fair one on Saturday night. According to various fans, R&B singer Ray J and Brooklyn rapper Fabolous got into a fight this weekend backstage at a concert. The hear say first started on Twitter after a fan wrote: "Just saw Ray J and Fabolous throw blows backstage at the concert in Vegas," while another tweets, "So @RayJ just punched @myfabolouslife about some dumb stuff but Fab whooped his a** backstage." Unlike the Mayweather bout, fans won't get to see the alleged fight on video. Reports have it that security guards forced all onlookers to delete any footage. (Singersroom)
^ Now peep the rumor right there. Sunday night, I think, and turns out they both exchanged blows but Fabolous got the upper hand, right? LOL. Not if Ray J has anything to say about it!
"I'ma smack you up again, fool! 'Ray J got beat up?' I'll sock that n*gga in the face, my n*gga," Ray J told DJ Envy, Angela Yee and Charlamagne Tha God. "All I'm saying is if you got Fab's number, tell that n*gga to send you a picture of his face right now...I'm with the Money Team right now. I swear to God he's running from me right now...[After I hit him,] he fell back because he's a sucker -- Fab ain't no comedian. My homie saved his life when he was in LA so how dare you even speak disrespectful to me. So when I seen him, I was with Floyd [Mayweather] and 50 [Cent] and he tried to say 'Don't touch me' and I [punched] that n*gga -- If you disrespect me, don't come to the West Coast. So he in Las Vegas and he tried to disrespect me?" ("The Breakfast Club")
^ Wait! Hold on, huh? So forget all that rumor stuff, turns out Ray J, little boy Ray J, was the victor? LOL. SMH. Nah, I don't buy it for a minute and neither did Fab.
"Who called in, Tupac?" Fab said sarcastically referring to Ray J's initial Monday morning rant. "Tupac called in? That wasn't Ray J. You can't be serious. That wasn't Ray J. That wasn't him. That wasn't Willy Norwood Jr. That wasn't him. That wasn't Brandy brother...It was no fight, it was no swing -- This whole story that he made up, that Tupac rant about him swinging on somebody and all of that sh*t is all lies. It's all, high on coke, on that Whitney. That's all on that Whitney last night. Ain't no swings take place. You can ask the Money Team. The Money Team was standing right there. Ask the Money Team that hes probably the water boy for -- There's nothing to squash. We can progress in our own ways. He can go his way and I can go my way. He can continue playing the piano at Floyd's crib if he wants and I'll continue to do what I do and he can continue to do concerts in n*ggas living rooms all he wants." (Power 105.1)
^ LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I won't lie doggies. I thought something may have popped off b/c Fab went mum all day until he called in that night. LOL. And then the inevitable happened, doggies:
"I want to apologize to my fans that might have been offended by the things I said on the radio today. I lost control.," he tweetedTuesday (September 20). (Ray J's Twitter)
So Ray J said he got all up in that grill but Fab said that the little boy was blowing smoke? If only there were one doggy that could really set the record straight? Who do y'all call when you need help with a fight? 5-0!!! LOL!!!!
"Soon as he comes, Ray popped off more like, 'Yo, I told you my people wasn't going to be happy with all that,'" 50 explained to Funkmaster Flex. "He got pretty close to him while he was saying it -- Fab is looking at him like he's crazy 'cause he's looking at me -- He said, 'Yo, you lost your mind?' [Did Ray J swing?] Nah. What happened after that, I think he got a little juice in him, I think Ray had a little something in him -- I'm not saying Ray J's lying. He did actually get moving in the hallway but I got between both of them. I ain't see no fear -- [Did he get punched in the face?] Nah. He didn't because he got three bouncers. If he got punched in the face in ain't enough for you to call it a punch." (Hot 97)
^ NO COMMENT. Bottom line, doggies, if you want to know the truth, you're gonna need that proof.
2. Rags To Riches
Doggies, I don't know why this story didn't make it onto SOHH or a bunch of other sites, but turns out Amber Rose got smacked up, not that Ray J/Fabolous though, on Twitter about going out to Ghana. SMH. Even when she's fully clothed, Rose keeps on getting doggies mad at anything she does. But she gets naked, then doggies get all quiet. LOL. This story is completely lifted up off VIBE b/c I couldn't find those tweets on her Twitter.
No matter what Amber Rose seems to do, it doesn't look like she'll ever be able to escape an online side-eye. This week Wiz Khalifa's wifey-in-training took a break from all the flashing lights to host Ghana's annual Vodaphone 020 Live concert. During her time there Amber made sure to visit poor villages and speak with school girls about the importance of education and good decision making.
Very socially responsible her, right? However, after posting pictures of herself posed in the more destitute areas of Ghana, tweeps lashed out on her questioning why she hadn't shown flicks of more affluent sectors. The buzzed beauty who was once homeless, explained that she didn't feel the need to highlight the wealthy.
"I saw that a lot of people on twitter said 'don't just show the poverty, show the rich people.' But for me, the rich people aren't doing anything for the little kids and the people that are living in poverty so I don't want to hang out with the rich people," she tweeted. "I wanted to see the kids in poverty. I grew up very poor. So I wanted to go see them, help them,talk to them and inspire them to let them know they could possibly be somebody great."
Say what you want about her nude photos, but Amber made a great point about wanting to showcase the unfinished work we still have to do in Africa's countries. Go 'head Mrs. Khalifa. (VIBE)
^ SMH. Give that chick a break, doggies. Really. LOL.
3. Doggy of the Week: Rick Ross
SMH. Doggies can't ban the Rozay! LOL. How does Rick Ross not even have an album out and continue to be the bes thing that's out there, doggies? It's really a simple question. Doggies tried hating on Ross back in 2008, I was one of them, but he kept that hunger up and did the smartest thing I've ever witnessed: Worked harder and got aligned with credible doggies. Not only that, he fished 5-0 Cent into the water and won, yeah doggies, WON, that rap battle. Since 2009? Doggy has made his own Maybach Music Group empire, begun signing his own artists, gotten the cover of magazines, I mean, doggies, he's doing interviews with GQ MAGAZINE! LOL!!!!!!! But this week was special. For starters, doggy talked that funny stuff with GQ. That's number one. Then he goes on to get some Star Trak love, more stuttering from Kreayshawn AND STRETCH than that Mystikal/Joe song back in the day and he gets modest with XXL Magazine. If that's not enough for y'all to show the doggy some "Doggy of the Week" love, then y'all are just haters. LOL.
I asked if he had a girlfriend. "I'm single," he said. "I'm enjoying life. Being a boss. Like all true bosses, one day you gotta give it up." He likes to visit the Louis Vuitton store at the Lenox mall when he is in town and has some downtime, and this afternoon, as we drove there, the topic of former congressman Anthony Weiner came up. Ross had never heard of him. He became curious as he learned the story. Some passages from a leaked Facebook chat were quoted. "How the f*ck that sh*t get out?" he wanted to know. He was told that Weiner tweeted a picture of his d*ck to someone. "Chicks send me pictures," Ross said. "And I appreciate it! I love all of them. But I don't do that sh*t. I'm the Boss." He shook his head, his expression hidden behind his candy-apple-red-framed aviator sunglasses. "Real n*ggas don't send d*ck flicks." (GQ Magazine)
^ LOL!!! That's real, doggies! I still can't believe you got doggies like Chris Brown, Kanye West, Soulja Boy Tell Em and Justin Timberlake getting their crotch shots out in the public. SMH. That just ain't cool. But even as relaxed and funny as Ross sounds, y'all gotta admit, this was HILARIOUS:
Pharrell names Rick Ross as one of hip-hop's current MVPs. "The way Ross is killing it right now. It's been a minute since the last time we had somebody like him to come out and do what he's doing or like a Wayne," Pharrell tells VIBE. "It's just completely authentic. [Ross] knows what he wants to do --knows his sound, has a style, has a definitive position, has a perspective on the game and what he adds to it and how he's gonna change it," he continues. "So music is in a really, really good place now and I'm watching it. I'm in the studio and everything is changing." (VIBE)
^ What? Y'all are too young to pick up on that Sci-Fi and Star Trak reference? LOL. Say what y'all want but this just confirms what I've been telling y'all for the past couple years. Rick Ross is THAT doggy out right now. Yeah, I think he's bigger than Lil Wayne but those numbers don't lie. But if he's not number one, then y'all can't deny he's a no-doubter for that Number 2 spot.
"I'm not concerned with any of that," Stretch told Tim Westwood when suggested he should no longer carry Kreayshawn's bags in fear of getting attacked by Rick Ross. Kreayshawn then went on to speak out on Ross' XXL Magazine remarks. "I think the XXL thing came out before our VMA and all that tidy up stuff. So it's just wrong timing and it's just bleeding into more stuff. A magazine takes like two months or something [to produce]. This is a non-event. There is water under that bridge and the river is passed. I've read the Bible and what I've done shall be forgiven." (Tim Westwood TV)
^ LOL!!!!! This cupcake keeps killing herself. But her main doggy? "I'm not concerned with any of that." LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! These doggies are a wrap. Nobody's checking for Kreayshawn anymore. LOL. Ross just laid the flowers over them. Getting punked at the Video Music Awards? LOL!!!!!!!
"I'm enjoying my last few moments at No. 2," Ross says, sitting on the bed in the back of his tour bus. "It's like I'm watching the No. 1 man on stage, my legs crossed, I'm smoking big, hollering at the b*tches in the crowd. And this album gonna do it. I got the formula." His sunglasses are off, and his eyes are heavily lidded but alive. "Everybody on my d*ck," he says, "like they supposed to be." (XXL Magazine)
^ Any doggy that won't co-sign Rozay, I feel for y'all but after reading that, how can you not? Most doggies, like a 5-0 Cent or even Diddy would brag about their fake status but Ross is cool with taking No. 2. Well, for now. Doggy is a star and the current day version of B.I.G. Yeah doggies, I said it!
4. Mrs. Butterworth: Natasha Georgette
I was going to wait until we got past the photos, but let me just address it now, doggies. There are NO VIDEOS for the sultry Natasha Georgette. Y'all know how I normally roll. Six delicious photos that make y'all want to practically lick your monitors and then a handful of videos for y'all to see that I'm not joking about the week's Mrs. Butterworth. But today, NG proves that pictures can speak a thousand or so words, so embrace what lies in front of y'all! Enjoy, doggies!
^ Come on, doggies. Can y'all knock me for not having any videos for this dime? If y'all find any, post the links in the comments section b/c she is a delight!
5. "STFU" Honors
Doggies, let's not even sugarcoat this past seven days. LOL. Trey Songz needs to go somewhere saying not only is he the best R&B-rapper but one of the best rappers OUT RIGHT NOW! SMH. That ain't right. Then, Memphis Bleek coming out of nowhere and actually forgetting when he put out his last album? LOL!!!!!!!!! That's a shame. Even more sad is the fact that I actually own 534. Next up? J. Cole making a mistake, catching it and still going forward with it saying that his leaked album is comparable to The Blueprint? That ain't cool at all. Your debut too? SMH. I heard that album, doggies. There ain't nothing timeless about it. LOL. Still good but doggy, watch your mouth. Next up? LOL. Sorry DJ Whoo Kid, you probably deserve a pass but I had to find a way to get you on here. You're THAT doggy! LOL!!! Last but not least? Game claiming he's not about selling millions anymore? Suuuuuuuuuure. Doggies, if y'all didn't know already, welcome to "SHUT THE F*CK UP" HONORS!
"I don't think no singer can rap better than me," Songz said in an interview. "I think I rap better than most rappers. Rapping is just fun for me -- It's a creative expression and it's easy, it flows - it's not something I'm trying to do, it's not something I'm putting out for sales; it's just to show how much I love it. I actually think Lauryn is the best who ever did it, actually incorporating the two. Just how conceptual she was and the thought process she had to go through to sounds that she made, that Miseducation [of Lauryn Hill] album was phenomenal. The mixture of the two, how they just mixed so cohesively like there were no steps missed."
"I've been working for three years, four years, so, I've got a bunch of records," Bleek said in an interview. "I ain't released an album since 2005, 2006? It's 2011. It's almost like, I don't want to say this on national TV, but it's real. It's like selling drugs. You can't just get on the block and say, 'I got this.' You gotta give out some samples or who's gonna come buy it from you just because you got it? ... I want to give it away so people can appreciate it. I feel like I have to throw the big single out, the radio record, to make you appreciate the album and spend your hard earned money. I don't want to do that. I don't want to convince you that this is the best album. I just want to give it out and you decide."
"Timeless. I feel like six months from now, one year from now, two, three years from now, it'll give you the same feeling. It's got a feeling, it's got a sound to it," Cole said in an interview. "Like The Blueprint. I'm not saying it sounds like Blueprint -- I'm saying I can throw the album in at any time and I'll know what it's going to sound like and how it's going to feel. Like it's one of those. But only time can tell."
"The only person that I really hate is probably Nas but it's some fake hate. It's not even real hate. I just hate him for no reason. That's what hip-hop beef is about. You beef for nothing. [Rick] Ross is no beef. He shops at the same Kid Robot store that I get my toys from. So it's not like there's beef. I don't even know why we're fighting -- hip-hop [has] unnecessary beef but it's good for us. We love it, it's funny and usually motherf*ckers will never confront each other. Guaranteed. It's not [late rappers] Biggie and 2Pac. That's real sh*t -- all this other sh*t is WWF [wrestling]."
"A couple of my homies went home, took showers, came back with new clothes and I was still up in the studio, recording [songs]," Game said about making his new LP. "So that's my dedication. I think after selling d*mn near 10-million albums and having platinum albums, I can't lose sight of the dedication to the craft and my fans."
***Doggies, my Yankees are headed to the play-offs as the AL East champs! Whether y'all are fanatics of baseball or not, ride with one of the eight teams going for the gold. It's not like we're gonna be able to root for those New York Knicks any time soon. SMH. Really doggies, first Netflix screws us and now the NBA? WTF? On that note, I'm out doggies, see y'all on Tuesday! --BB***
