Pulse Report: Amber Rose Drops The Nasty N-Bomb, Nicki Minaj's Hot Pink Bikini Photos Scorch, Drake Holds Down The Crown
Friday, Mar 16, 2012 12:00PM
In this week's Pulse Report, doggies, we ponder if Amber Rose's recent N-bomb was a big deal, drool over Nicki Minaj's new hot pink bikini pictures, applaud Drake for holding things down and oh SOHH much more!
1. Get Nasty Girl
I don't know about y'all, but something about Wiz Khalifa's "Never Been" Pt. II record just doesn't rub me the right way. I couldn't put my finger on it until a few listens. I heard Wiz Khalifa lay down his tracks. Hot. The beat? Hot. The catchy hook? Dope. Rick Ross' verse? Boss. But then I kept listening and played it over and over. Where is Amber Rose? I swear doggies, I went onto a YouTube hunt thinking a missing verse was out there some where. Come to find out, Amber Rose was on the HOOK!? I knew it couldn't have been right, right? I mean, you doggies tell me if there's anything that really sticks out to y'all:
[Hook: Amber Rose]
(Don't give a f*ck about the)
Money, clothes, cars
I've never been, this far
And f*ck that other sh*t that n*ggas talking about
I've never been, this high
Now I don't mean to be a sour grape, doggies, but after all the hate and yapping doggies did over V-Nasty and Kreayshawn using the N-Word last year, where are all the doggies questioning Amber Rose right here? I mean, really, doggies? If your philosophy is she's been around enough black doggies that she gets a pass, then I'll ask y'all this; Can Kim Kardashian drop those N-Bombs? SMH.
Like I said, I really hate to be a sour grape and bring up something that doggies may not feel like discussing but I'm disgusted that she dropped the N-Bomb on there. Whether it was Wiz Khalifa's suggestion or not, it just doesn't make sense to me. And according to her Wikipedia, she's made of Cape Verdean, Italian and Filipino descent. WTF? Are y'all kidding me?! At least there was a doggy or two that had something to say as well:
Although Rose didn't have an official verse on the track (it seemed more like a hook), many are questioning her use of the n-word. While many have pointed out that Amber is biracial, other's aren't trying to hear it and think it's wrong for Rose to drop the n-bomb. Either way, one thing is clear: Wiz not only loves Amber Rose, but he's also trying to help her build her music (rap?) career. (Clutch Magazine)
^ Y'all be your own judges. Should Amber Rose really get a pass for that? I'm not taking away the fact that she's one of the hottest chicks out but her dropping the N-Bomb is messing with my head.
2. The Pink Monster
Doggies, can I be honest with y'all? I am opting out of discussing that Lil Kim/Rosci beef so we can all drop our pants, I mean, jaws and stare in amazement at Nicki Minaj in a bikini. If you're looking for anything else, just proceed to "Doggy of the Week," otherwise, prepare to drag these images to your desktop! LOL!
Nicki Minaj heated up Hawaii while shooting the electrifying video for "Starships," the RedOne-produced single from her sophomore album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded. The hip-hop hottie hit the beaches of Oahu to film the summery visuals on Wednesday, giving the paparazzi an eyeful. The rap diva rolled in the sand in a hot pink bikini and neon green wig, showing off her voluptuous figure and world famous booty, and splashed in the waves as the sun glistened against her wet body. Earlier in the day, she performed near a waterfall with her hunky male co-stars, who wore pink in her honor. After wrapping the all-day shoot, Nicki celebrated with a cake featuring her single cover. (Rap-Up)
^ SMH........call it pop, I don't care! If Nicki gets this sexy for her "pop" records, I hope she continues to pop out of the clothes! LOL!
3. Doggy of the Week: Drake
This was yet another week of no-brainer Doggy of the Week. You could argue that Lil Wayne had some big things popping off but Drake clearly made the most headlines in the past seven days. I don't even know where to start. Him admitting how shook he was back in 2009 during that S.O.B.'s show? Getting up-close to Rihanna? If there was ever an expression for blue balls that could be applied to women, Drizzy's given RiRi that! LOL. I have to also give props to Drake for balling hard, literally, and selling his crib to a Miami Heat doggy. That's a big move. But not as big a move as Drake getting at his ex on the Twitter tip! LOL!!!! Never one to co-sign sleek disses, but doggy had me rolling going at Maliah Michel. The cherry on top of Drake getting this accolade is Lil Kim co-signing doggy. Really, Kim, really!? LOL!!!!! Make some noise, doggies, Drake's got that "Doggy of the Week" swag!
With S.O.B.'s set to celebrate its 30-year anniversary at SXSW tonight (March 14), Drizzy Drake spoke to XXLMag.com about his first show at the historic venue. "When I was at S.O.B.'s, it was a lot of nerves," Drake told XXL. "I was nervous. Not only that, but it just had so much pressure behind the show. Not only that, but I had no band. I had no sense of what makes a great performance."
^ That's real. Whenever a doggy can keep it gully and admit when he's gotten shook is impressive. Kind of on that Ghostface Killah level where it's just real, not even something you can knock or make fun of. I remember how much hype Drake got for that S.O.B.'s show back in 2009 and just remember thinking, "I wish I was that doggy, the sky is the limit," but as he said, there were expectations through the roof. Big ups to Drake for keeping it a hundred.
Drake and Rihanna travel to new heights in the artistic visual for their budding hit collaboration "Take Care." The video, directed by Yoann Lemoine, features grayscaled, intimate scenes with the hit-making duo, cinematic close-up shots of a bird, bull, and fish moving in artsy rhythm to the Jamie XX produced cut, and a group of muscular male performers acting out tribal dance scenes. We have your first look at the forthcoming video, which judging by these images, looks to be epic.
^ By my calculations, Drake has hooked up with Rihanna 69 times? LOL. OK, that was corny. For a doggy that is allegedly NOT dating Rihanna, they do everything in their power to make you think they are screwing on the low. LOL. Bottom line, even if they aren't an item, just look at their body of "work" right here. SMH. The closest I get to this is when I am riding on the subway and a crew of college vollyeball players all jump in. LOL.
South Beach-based attorney Matthew Krieger represented Miami Heat player Mario Chalmers in the $2.6 million purchase of a five bedroom, six bath condo (created by merging two units together) at the Marquis in downtown Miami. Seller? Aubrey Graham, better known as Canadian rapper Drake.
^ Is it just me or are y'all surprised that Drake has this kind of money? I mean, we hear all those records and see him on the TV but the fact he's got million-dollar cribs? LOL!! I need a new career. J/K. But all that to the side, how ill is it that he sold his crib to Mario Chalmers? If you ever needed an insurance policy on Heat tickets, here you go! LOL. Power movin' Drizzy!
Rapper Drake may have sparked a twitter beef with one of his ex girlfriends, Stripper Maliah Michel. Last night Drake tweeted, "Sometimes I wanna tweet things like "B*tch how you stop f*ckin with me and now you live on twitter everyday"...but then I just don't."
^ LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Once again, I am not big on the subliminal tweets but that's hard. Drake sounds like he has a pimp hand, watch out ladies! So is "this" that Heartbreak Drake we've never seen?

"Believe it or not, I'ma be real 'cause I'm a real person," Kim said in an interview, "I don't care. All that other stuff don't mean nothin'. For me, I'm a Drake fan. I like Drake as an artist. I don't like him as a person. But I like him as an artist and he makes good music. I'm just bein' real. I like his music."
^ LOL!!!!!! Give it up, Kim. Are you kidding me? By you keeping it real, you've played yourself. You would have been better off just saying NO COMMENT. Doggy, doggy, doggy, Drake. You got the entire world loving you. LOL.
4. Mrs. Butterworth: Mizz DR
Doggies, I would be lying to y'all if I said this is not my favorite section. Sure, it's fun to cover the hottest topics going down in hip-hop and then look at the doggy that had every doggy's attention for the past seven days and then putting doggies on blast in "STFU" Honors? LOL. But something about having been influenced from mags like KING and Smooth growing up, it's great to realize I'm putting all of y'all up on the hottest of the hottest. LOL. This week is unlike any other. The name, the body, the everything Mizz DR comes with leaves me speechless. It's not enough to have a cute face these days and looking at what Mizz has to offer, y'all will immediately see why! LOL. Round of applause, please.
^ Still thirsty, doggies? LOL. Thank the all-mighty for the invention of YouTube! LOL!!!
5. "STFU" Honors
It's that time of the Pulse Report, doggies, where we see why oh why even a publicist can't save 'em from saying the silliest things. Matter of fact, we may have to re-name the section, "Doggies Say The Darnest Things." Actually, YEAH! If I can remember that, I'm going to ride out with it. "Doggies Say The Darnest Things." LOL!!!! While I put my schemes and dreams to the side, let's get to the bottom of what popped off these past seven days. Shyne comparing his Diddy beef to Notorious B.I.G./2Pac!? Is doggy on some funny stuff? Then, sorry Tech N9ne, but your rant about the South By Southwest event makes you sound old and grumpy. Then Game really making us think, or at least trying, that he's mature? Grown? LOL!!!!!!! GTFOH! LOL!!!!!! While I like doggy's energy, Machine Gun Kelly's fantasy of effing a chick in her dungeon hole? HUH!? Last but not least. Super Head. SMH. In case y'all didn't realize it yet, welcome to "Doggies Say The Darnest Things," formerly known as "SHUT THE F*CK UP" Honors!
"You can't overstate the cultural significance of what Shyne and Diddy reconciling means," Shyne wrote. "You know I'm about it when it comes to them hammers, thus unfortunately this could have ended like Tupac and B.I.G. But what if Tupac and B.I.G ended like this and reconciled? Let's celebrate this moment as a historical event and a victory for hip-hop and Afro and Latin American men trained to exterminate each other. It's a new day! L'chaim!!!"
"Everybody talkin' about South by Southwest and all the parties and shows and girls ... n*gga I tried to go see Bun B and I couldn't even get in!," Tech added. "Luckily, I got into a Devin the Dude show because that's the homie. These badges don't mean sh*t, n*gga. Show me the party. I go onstage no later than 10 o'clock on my tours, n*gga at 1 a.m. my body is shuttin' down ... f*ck that! N*gga I don't give a f*ck about going last, put me first. Let Mac Miller go last or somebody like that. I'm just sayin', put the n*ggas that's blowin' up on stage first. Put Wiz Khalifa last."
"The number one thing they're going to find out is that I've grown," he says. "When people think of The Game, they just think of this mean face, of my background and bullet wounds and the coma and the gangbanging, and they let that define me... But there's a lot more to me. I got a family, I got friends, I smile sometimes, I laugh, I have fun in my life. I think that the 'Behind The Music' will open up everybody's mind on that person I really am."
"First off, I wish my first album Lace Up does exactly what I dream it would when it comes out next year. Second I wish that, no matter how successful I get, I'm with the same team that I started out with. Third, I wish that.... (friend in the background yells "wish some ignorant sh*t!")," MGK added, "I wish I could f*ck the most famous female celebrity in the a**shole on camera. Sex tape. I'm a big fan of anal!"
"Ppl who started following this new accnt b4 this wk know I have RANDOM rants. This is all for entertainment & does not reflect my life... Usually I do this during #twittersfterdark but was inspired earlier in the day by the books I'm publishing & writing... True, I can relate to MANY of my tweets, just as you can, but they are not meant to be autobiographical all the time... My job is to entertain thru, whether in books or on Twitter. I like to keep ppl guessing but pls don't assume u know what I'm talking about."
***Doggies, wild week to say the least! All these trades?! Mike D'Antoni no longer on the Knicks!? Peyton Manning going to the Titans? Huh!? I can't even call it. Oh, by the way, if y'all doggies have some paper to spare, go see Silent House! GREAT horror flick, trust me! Other than that, y'all doggies enjoy this warm weekend coming up. I'll catch y'all on Tuesday! --BB***
