Friday, Aug 24, 2012 12:15PM
In this week's Pulse Report, we see why Shyne's calling out Diddy for not keeping it gangsta, find out why T.I. thinks Ochocinco deserves a second chance, applaud Lil Wayne for working up a media frenzy and oh SOHH much more!

1. That Ain't Right
Just for the record, Donny Goines KILLED that Lil Wayne diss track. But onto the matter at hand, it looks like Shyne is back to being a Bad Boy again. Well, sort of. Turns out Diddy isn't keeping Shyne happy these days (what's new) and so Shyne decided to go off on him with...another diss record? It's bad enough that his voice sounds horrible since coming out of prison but to try and put out an actual diss record in 2012? Didn't he learn anything from Lil Wayne's "Goulish" diss? Not only do you have to be a hot artist to get attention but you've got to at least deliver a quality diss. What Shyne spit on this "You're Welcome" joint? No bueno:
"He ain't from there, this is not a smear, this is what they fear, the whole youth I swear," Shyne raps, "Look, I seen the plot, what he did to Mase and did to Lox, what he did to Wolf and did to Ak/God Bless the dead, Notorious, Pac/Why would I think that I was different/So I just, sat in the distance/Kept my mouth closed, looked and listened/Learned all the trades of the sharks and fishes" ("You're Welcome")
^ What's he saying here that hasn't been said before? Are we supposed to be shocked that Diddy did Ma$e and The LOX dirty? (Old news) Are we upset b/c Puffy doesn't have street cred? (Old news) Or are we really going to take the time to work up some anger at Puffles b/c of some under-paying donation he's giving the mother of a late employee? (ZZzzzz) Miss Info found out what was what by talking to Shyne:
1) Shyne sounds surprisingly like the same guy he was when we first met back in the 90's. 2) Shyne says he recorded this diss song a while ago, but only released it because he feels Diddy didn't deliver on the promises he made when they reconciled earlier this year. 3) Shyne says he turned down Diddy's offer of money, because all he wanted was for Diddy to lobby on his behalf and help him get a US-Visa. 4) Shyne's other complaint was on behalf of the late Anthony "Wolf" Jones, who was Diddy's bodyguard and close friend before he was killed in 2003. He feels that Diddy should take care of Jones' surviving mother. Shyne says, "Don't give me any money, I don't need it. But take care of Ms. Jones. [Diddy] gave her $10k when I started talking to him, but that was it. But while we were in Paris, he spent half a million on his chick, Cassie...If it weren't for Wolf, if it weren't for me, things would be very different. There would be no Ciroc deal, he wouldn't be worth close to a billion..." (Miss Info)
If that wasn't enough, just look at the meltdown Shyne had on Twitter. Really, doggy?
"Top of the morning gangland military! The Commander in Cheif is pleased to report that no one hacked my twitter account! #All facts!," he tweeted Thursday (August 23).
"U can't rap about the streets make hundreds of millions off of street rap & not abide by the street code of honor."
"What is a rat? Someone who sacrifices others for their self gain. A rat is the guy that gets caught then tells on everybody else"
"A rat isnt trying to help society a rat just doesn't want to go to jail so he sends everybody else to jail"
"I have no malice in my heart. @iamdiddy needs help! Nobody around has the courage to help him! I'm here to help him!"
"When your child is misbehaving u have to punish him or he will self destruct! Should I allow @iamdiddy to keep destroying himself&others"
"Y'all seen what happened to mase, what he did to the lox, wolf & his cousin ak! @iamdiddy needs my help! I'm here to straighten him out!" (Shyne's Twitter)
^ Can someone please send Shyne the memo that reads, "WE KNOW THIS ALREADY." LOL. I guess he forgot Ma$e tried to sign back to Bad Boy a little while back and Diddy almost got the LOX signed back to the label if it wasn't for an Interscope contractual issue. Shyne's lost it. Watch out.
2. The King Has Spoken
I don't know how I feel about this. Something about T.I. co-signing or backing up the idea of Chad Ochocinco joining the Atlanta Falcons doesn't sit right with me. Now keep in mind, I am aware that Rick Ross and Lil Wayne have both showed support to Ocho and he has not been convicted as of now, but I can't get that idea of him head-butting Evelyn Lozada out of my dome.
"Could we use him? I believe we could, man," T.I. told SOHH when asked if the Atlanta Falcons could use the wide receiver. "I think one thing about adversity and tragic moments with people who are extremely talented, it brings the best out of them. He needs another opportunity. Whatever they did, whether it's Chad or whoever, I think he's going to be a bit more focused on his reconditioning and I think this all will bring the best out of him." (SOHH)
I don't know, are we supposed to feel sorry for him? Maybe I'm looking at the situation too personally. Just look at how we all have accepted Chris Brown back into the world after all that turmoil. Some of my peeps even promised that Brown's career was over. I hear what Tip's saying but showing any type of support for Ocho this soon just doesn't sit right with me.
3. Moment of the Week: Lil Wayne Doens't <3 NY
If there was ever an incident or event that united people around my way more than 9/11, it has to be what Lil Wayne said this week. LOL. The simple saying of "I don't like New York" made people I hate and people I love all come together as brothers and sisters. Never before had I seen so many doggies in the barbershop united and talking about how bogus Lil Wayne is for saying what he said. There were talks of childhood memories, the Knicks back when they were good, the New York Yankees' championships, etc. Without a doubt, Wayne stole the show this week:
Lil Wayne has never been shy about expressing his disdain for New York, but that didn't stop Tunechi from rolling through the Roseland Ballroom to rock the stage with Nicki Minaj. "Flat out: I don't like New York," Weezy told MTV News on Monday night while in Las Vegas to introduce his new line of sneakers with Supra. Wayne's distaste for the Big Apple performances is understandable, considering it was his 2007 gun arrest after a NYC show that led to his 2010 incarceration. "You're not supposed to leave it at, 'Everything happens for a reason,' " Wayne said of how the failed Summer Jam set turned into a blessing in disguise. "I believe everything happens for a reason and then you make the most of that reason. I think we made the most of it last week." (MTV)
^ I don't know how his comments may have affected y'all or anyone outside of New York City, but he's got the city on fire! LOL. Who would have thought such a little guy would make such a big impact. We've got New York pizza, New York Post, New York Daily News, New York Times, you name it, we've got it. Although those Philly Cheesesteaks are a product of Philly. LOL. Big props to Lil Wayne. I owed my boy $5 and he was so heated about Weasel that he forgot to ask for it. Now that's what a "Moment of the Week" is supposed to do! LOL!
4. Mrs. Butterworth: Montana Deleon
Let me tell you all a true story. I tried logging into my personal Mrs. Butterworth-themed site, Blue Star Live, last week and the page didn't load up right. I shrugged and shut off the laptop. The next morning, I turn on the computer and try logging back in there. Nothing. The page is distorted and I can't log in correctly. Fast forward mad days (which is the equivalent of 2 days for me) and countless attempts, the site is DOWN! I just knew it was the end of my massive collection of Mrs. Butterworth ladies. I went into a brief breakdown and on the verge of collapsing from a lack of bootyism in my life, I gave it one last shot and UP AND RUNNING. The moral of the story? Find a better booty archive a.k.a. Mrs. Butterworth and cherish it!
Just for the record, there is some really, and I do mean REALLY, juicy footage that I can't put in here. Just use some of those words that you'd never use at a public library search engine and y'all will come across it. Montana Deleon, you are something special.
5. Rappers Say The Darndest Things
There were some really funny things that popped over these past seven days. We have to start with Hazel-E giving us the quote of the century from James Harden. LOL. I can hardly type I'm still laughing from what I read. Then, it's keeping on the topic of no-name rappers, you can call him DJ Webstar, Webstar, Web, it doesn't matter....we still don't really know who you are. Going even further to pointless doggies is MC EIHT. SMH. Huh? Hating on Ryan Lochte, like, WHO ARE YOU? LOL. Gotta give 2 Chainz a playful nod this week b/c acting like he's not the happiest doggy of the year about those first-week numbers? LOL!!! You can smile, Tity Boi! And last but not least, Kobe Bryant's wife? SMH....I'll let her tell y'all what it is! LOL.
"Ball players want to be rappers and rappers want to be ball players, it's true. James is a Cali boy. He's real cool, he's laid back and he loves music. We were going to do something for my mixtape but it didn't work out due to timing but at the end of the day, that's where it came about, through the music. He had seen the "Valley Girl" [music video] and so the first time we hung out, he had at least three Hazel-E tracks on his iPod. He was just like, "I'm about that Hazel-E life." I was like, "Oh, okay. I see you." I don't know, maybe he has a thing for female rappers. But he's hella cool. He's a cool dude. I just seen him a few weeks ago and told him congrats on all of your success and everything that's going on with you."
"That's just me being a little creative," Webstar told SOHH when asked about dropping the "DJ" from his rap alias. "I have alter egos. When I'm in 'artist' mode, I'm just Webstar. But when I'm in deejay mode, like when I was just in Los Angeles or Atlantic City deejaying for Jamie Foxx and Mary J. Blige, I'm DJ Webstar. When I'm working, I'm Webstar. It's like two [personas]. [No death to the deejay name.] Never. Never."
Eiht tells TMZ he coined the phrase back in 1988 and is insulted to hear Lochte is trying to claim it as his own now. Eiht tells us, "Why try and trademark something his a** didn't even create? I am mad that he isn't giving me proper recognition for taking my saying. He is just disrespectful." The Compton's Most Wanted rapper tells TMZ he's not so much concerned about the money as he is the "respect and the truth." Eiht says he plans on sending a cease and desist letter urging Lochte to stop using his phrase. Lochte's manager tells us, "Ryan has been using JEAH for years," adding, "This is the first I have heard of this claim by MC Eiht."
"I'm looking at it like I worked my a** off," he said in an interview with DJ Envy, Angela Yee and Charlamagne Tha God. "It's not about the record. I'm not even in tune with what the charts are doing. When it first happens I get geeked and then I go back to work. I just know I've done, just this year alone, I've done two tours with two people I feel like are major artists with diverse fan bases -- I'm just looking at what I did on my own prior to doing tours. Just going around kissing babies, shaking hands, and just really trying to figure out the connection with the fans. So will I be disappointed if I only do one-something? No, but at the same time I just got high expectations for myself."
Now, Vanessa tells TMZ ... "I'm sad to hear that comments in my New York Magazine interview are being misconstrued and taken out of context. I have and will continue to support my husband's dreams." Vanessa continues, "I have been with Kobe for 13 years. I accepted his marriage proposal PRIOR to him winning any of his 5 championships with his teammates." "For anyone to think otherwise is wrong. It is not about being married to a 'winner' it is about our sacrifice as a family."
***I avoided it in the Cap Diss this week but I can't lie, my New York Jets are in some serious trouble. LOL. Not even Tim Tebow can answer all the prayers I have for Gang Green. We've got trouble and the beat down that the New York Giants gave us simply proved it. SMH. Forget baseball season, I'm holding out for some miracles to start coming for Rex Ryan and company. Oh yeah, don't forget to get your hands on that Madden 13 this Tuesday! Y'all know it's a must-have! Catch y'all on Tuesday! --BB***
