1. High School High
Y'all doggies want to know the truth? I used to think that Wiz Khalifa was a soft doggy. Yeah, I'll admit it just b/c I'm doggy enough to do so. There was always something about him that threw me off. You know how there's those doggies that smoke and get high but are really nerds on the low? Or what about that run when Khalifa had a patch of blonde and was getting away with it by us? Yeah, you guessed it, I thought doggy had really fallen off the deep end, especially when he took the so-called "Sloppy Seconds" that came in the form of Amber Rose. (For the record, I would take "Sloppy Eighths" if it came with Amber Rose). But all of that to the side, these past seven days have shown me a side of Khalifa that I've never seen before. Brute honesty. It wasn't about saying "NO COMMENT" which doggies know I highly recommend in 10 out of 10 situations. It wasn't about making sarcastic comments or just playing dumb over some straight up questions, nah, Wiz didn't do that. Doggy kept things all the way 100 and he should be appreciated for it. I mean, to keep getting chin-checked on the microphone by Kanye West and finally addressing "Theraflu" once and for all?
During an interview with renowned DJ Funkmaster Flex on New York City's Hot 97 radio dial Monday night (April 23), the Pittsburgh MC said he was very surprised to hear Kanye drop his name on the record. "Shocked?" Flex asked him. "Yes!" Wiz responded. "Why was it so shocking to you?" Flex shot back. "Because he said my name," Wiz answered. "I've gone a long time without anybody actually saying my name out loud like that. It wasn't a bad thing. It was just the fact that it was my name. That's my name. it was wild, it was wild, but nothing negative. Everybody got positive from it, so it's positive." (XXL Mag)
^ Big props once again for Khalifa after keeping it so 100 right there. Any normal doggy would have made some slick comments but he took it all the way real and made y'all believe (whether true to not) that it was all legit. Not only has Kanye been down right disrespectful to that bond he shares with Rose, Khalifa still pushed the "Love is Love" philosophy and even later said he would consider doing a collaboration with him. That's real doggies. But Ye's bullying was baby stuff compared to what came next:
"I don't know, that's deaded, it's deaded, I ain't bothering nobody," Flocka told radio host Angie Martinez. "I voiced my opinion because it's true and it's facts. I ain't bothering nobody, whatchu mean? I don't know. I don't know what's going on -- that's like me rapping gangster, I get on top and I start rapping about cookies and cream and lollipops. Whatchu gonna call me? Nice guy or a sucker? Aight then. I got this album about to drop, June 12th. That's a nice guy, he makes good music. I got cousins like his music. Eh, that's it. We're two nice guys with good music. I'm always nice." (Hot 97)
^ OUCH! Sorry, doggies, but if another doggy were to call anything I do "Cookie & Cream"???? LOL!!!!! It'd be a wrizzy for sure. Now did Wiz call up that Taylor Gang crew? Did he ask Juicy J to get some of them Memphis goons out for work?
"I don't say anything directly to anybody. I could go out and say I never intentionally sent any ill will his way. I don't believe in rap beefing. I don't believe in the competitiveness of rapping against each other. I would never entertain anything. He don't really seem like he into it too much either. ... I get so much that one day it might just come out, but not yet though. It would happen if I went completely insane and just forgot about everything that I've worked for and trying to achieve. When my bank account get low and I'm not smoking as much..." (Hot 97)
"I don't have problems with people, because if I do, I address it," he said when he appeared on Wednesday's "RapFix Live." "If I feel someone disrespected me or if I feel like somebody was mentioning me in an indirect way I'ma find out how to talk to that person and then we'll squash it from there." Rather than address his feelings in the media, Khalifa said he'd rather wait to speak to the "O Let's Do It" rapper face to face. "What would I say to him? I really want to say it to him. We'll save it for that, it don't gotta be a public thing. It don't gotta be a peace meeting or nothing like that." (MTV)
^ It's this simple, doggies. Wiz Khalifa's got a bad chick, good karma and a personality that's daring another doggy to test him. He's even got me thinking that making the top of Forbes by next year is doable....well, actually, nah, let's just leave it at that. LOL.
2. Wetter Than Before
Doggies, doggies, doggies. If there were only one rap chick that can get the "I HATE HER ALL DAY" and then in the very next breath, "DOGGY, I'VE LOVED THAT CHICK FROM DAY ONE," it has to be Nicki Minaj. One week I can't believe how much she puts on for the strippers in that "Beez in the Trap" music video and then gets me wild anti-Nicki for that Twitter stunt and then has going crazy again for her new "Starships" music video? Not only do we see Nicki Minaj strut her stuff in a pink bikini, she really gets the splashes and wetness working across all boards! Applaud this lady, doggies. This is a bad chick, word to Ludacris:
Nicki Minaj's video for 'Starships' is essentially the live action equivalent of the Sports Illustrated annual Swimsuit Issue. We see the buxom rapper cavorting around in a variety of bathing suits. Her body is banging, so she is not afraid to show it off. More power to her. The video is certainly a signpost of summer, and not just because of Minaj's skimpy attire, as the singer splashes around in the ocean in the opening segment. She is wearing a pink (no surprise there!) bikini, showing off that curvy and enviable figure of hers. Her bootay is in full view, several times. At first, while Miss Minaj is wearing a bright yellow wig, her girls are big, bouncy and beautiful in her "pinkini," if you will. (Pop Crush)
^ Yes, doggies, we all realize the song is not hip-hop....AT ALL. Yes, doggies, we realize that the video concept is not only corny but that by the time you read this it could be taken off YouTube easily. And yes doggies, much like Drake's "Best I Ever Had" music video, it's more about the visuals than what's being said. LOL. In other words? Enjoy and if you can't see it here, see it SOMEWHERE! The perfect video clip to upstart your weekend. LOL!
3. Doggy of the Week: Suge Knight
LOL. LOL. LOL!!! Only one doggy can make me laugh harder than Suge Knight and that's Jaz-O. Something about doggies who have fallen from grace but still talk like they're more relevant than the president hits me in the gut. LOL. Now doggies, especially me, should have known it wouldn't take too long after Tupac Hologram came into existence before Suge would be yapping about something. Not only did doggy make statements that should have cement him in "Doggies Say The Darndest Things" Hall of Fame, but he said things that made me wonder just how off the edge he is these days. Doggy not onlly said Pac might still be alive but he went as far as to threaten Rick Ross AND diss the hologram Pac over.....A PENDANT!? LOL. It wasn't a lot but it was enough to make Rick Ross the "Doggy of the Week," doggies. Applaud this doggy!
Knight just appeared on 93.5 KDay in L.A. with Tattoo and Cee Cee ... and pumped some major fuel into the biggest urban legend in hip hop ... that Tupac FAKED his own death. Knight says his theory explains why cops never found his murderer -- because there was no murder. "Maybe the question is ... Pac's not really dead ... pac's somewhere else," Knight says. When asked if he ever saw Tupac's body following the 1996 shooting, he adds, "Nobody seen Tupac dead. " Knight explains, "The person who supposedly cremated Tupac ... this guy got about 3 million dollars .. personally from me ... cash ... and next thing I know I never heard from the guy or seen him again ... he retired and left." (TMZ)
^ LOL!!!! Be honest doggies, is Suge Knight the only doggy that can make us think Pac might really be alive? LOL. As crazy as it sounds, only Suge can make me think Pac could really be breathing, caked up some place overseas. Applaud that doggy! LOL.
Suge Knight is FURIOUS over the look of 2Pac's hologram at Coachella ... telling TMZ the people who created it screwed up one major detail. The rapper was out in Los Angeles last night when he pointed out that the 3D hologram used to bring 2Pac to life on stage was missing the rapper's famous Death Row Records chain. Knight told us, "At the end of the day, how you gonna take the Death Row chain off Pac? That's like taking the Raiders symbol off the Raiders." (TMZ)
^ Once again, only Suge could get away with such a strong statement. LOL. It's one thing to say that the Pac performance offended him because of bringing the rapper from the grave or maybe just because he wasn't involved but nah. It's the fact that doggy isn't rocking a DEATH ROW RECORDS CHAIN!?!?! LOL!!!!!!! Only Suge...
"I can't sit up here and say I'm bitter to Rick Ross, 'cus like anybody else, we don't know Rick Ross," Suge said. "That's a guy who uses somebody else's name. This guy comes from being a correctional officer. I don't got nothing negative [against him] personally, I just feel like he do do good music, and you can't take that from him. That boy got bars, he's gonna write...at the same time, I feel like there's a line you cross, and Rick Ross crossed that line. If you're gonna be with guy [Diddy] who killed Tupac, you can't go turn around and do a record [called] 'Tupac Back'...Rick Ross is a grown a** n*gga. I'll beat the dog sh*t out of Rick Ross for manipulating these people out here." (93.5 KDay)
^ Can doggies just imagine a real beef brewing between Knight and Rick Ross? LOL. Nah, neither can I but the idea is beyond funny. Give props to Suge for going after the biggest doggy in the rap game. To his defense though, he's got a good point. How could you vouch for Ross when doggy had "Tupac Back" but is down with Puffy? Call doggy crazy, but Knight can make y'all think pretty hard.
4. Mrs. Butterworth: Malicia Monroe
Doggies, when it's all said and done, I think I'm going to marry a Mrs. Butterworth. I don't know if my momma will appreciate it too much but I think I need a special something that is thick in the right places and has a smile that could kill a doggy. And who's to say that not all Mrs. Butterworth ladies are momma material. I think we get gassed up over the idea that they're these stuck up, overpaid and high maintenance women but just looking at Malicia Monroe.... LOL... Let me shut up now. With a name that stems from "Malicious" or "Malice" well, I guess we all know she's a bad chick. Doggies, make it clap for this juicy delight!
^ And doggies, y'all know I always have you with the videos but even this one was too hot to put in here. For doggies that can sneak off to their quiet place, enjoy Malicia Monroe's curvy moves BY CLICKING HERE.
5. Doggies Say The Darndest Things
Doggies, it's that time of the Pulse Report where we put your favorite RAPPERS out on blast. From doggies talking pure reckless to doggies that are just too emo-tional to get passes, you can find them all right here. Where do we start? How about with Wayne Brady spitting "hot fire" this week? LOL!!! Sorry Wayne, but the bars you were dropping even put my grandmother to sleep. Step your game up doggy. Then it's Heartbreak Drake getting his Lady Killer license revoked. LOL!!! Doggy, there are just some things you don't say. If that wasn't enough, then just looking at what Papoose said about his DEBUT album dropping? LOL!!! Give it up, doggy. No time for the excuses. And what would this section be without multiple cases of Drake? LOL. Sorry, Drizzy, but you can't talk about getting your heart broke in one instance and then brag about having your own sex tape stash. Those things just don't work. Lastly... Nicki Minaj? LOL. Yeah, and it's not for the reason you think, tweet tweet tweety birds. In case y'all didn't know it already, it's time for "SHUT THE F*CK UP" Honors!
"Just got off the plane, thank God it's another day," Brady raps, "It's wonderful to be here with my man Sway/Now in Gotham you can see me make jokes -- what am I talking about, man, how can it be/You can't have a stroke and flip up your sexuality/That won't work, man, my heart was breaking/That's like saying you had a cold and woke up like Clay Aiken...."
"I fell for somebody I liked so much. So, so much. Not a celebrity, just a normal girl. "She was like, 'I won't be in a relationship with you, you're a rapper and I think more of myself than to go through the (expletive); I can't read the rumors every day whether they're true or not.' That killed me. D*mn, it was a lose/lose, a fight I can't even fight because she's already bowing out."
"The album will see the day of light real soon if everything keeps going the way it is," Papoose said. "[Funkmaster] Flex played ["It's Like That" remix] four times last night. The only thing that's holding me back is the politics of the game. But the album will come out this year, definitely." When it does, Pap says he has a record, "What's My Name," that features his wife, Remy Ma, which is sure to please listeners. "On that record, you'll get more of an insight about how we interact with each other in the relationship," he said. "It's a crazy record, I'm eager to put it out."
Drake owns all his sex tapes. The 25-year-old rapper - who previously dated Rihanna - insists he is very cautious in his life and ensures he always takes precautions to ensure any of his reckless behavior remains private. He said: "I don't live recklessly. I don't have skeletons in my closet. It's not necessarily me covering it up or trying to be defensive, I just don't do the dumb s**t in the first place to get in trouble. If I'm drunk, I'mma go out the back door. I ain't gonna walk out the front so you see me stumbling and dropping my keys. I'm not that guy, I'm not that dumb. I wanna be in this position as long as I possibly can. I mean, I will be honest, any sex tape I've ever made, I own it."
During an appearance on 'The Graham Norton Show', she said: 'You can't really call it making out. She kissed me but I didn't kiss her back. I wasn't expecting it and I was shocked like everyone else. I was shaking and thinking, 'Is this really happening, why is she doing this?' 'It was the strangest thing ... she had very soft lips.'
***Doggies, call me a super nerd, I can't fake. THE AVENGERS IN SEVEN DAYS! LOL. Now don't get it twisted, just b/c a doggy gets down with those Marvel flicks doesn't mean I'll be at the midnight showings......only b/c they cost too much! I'll be there first thing in the AM! LOL! Aight doggies, trying to contain myself until then. NBA Playoffs are in full effect, told y'all them Knicks were play-offs bound after D'Antoni's exit. But let me watch my words now before y'all try to put a doggy on blast later on. LOL. Early predictions? Thunder and
Heat Knicks in the NBA Finals! Belee dat, Birdman! LOL! --BB***
