1. Ready 2 Die

There's no doubt in my mind, Gucci Mane is either the smartest rapper in the game or the dumbest. Either way, one thing is for certain and that's that he is the most hated these days. Don't let a few Busta Rhymes and Rick Ross collaborations for you, he's deading ties left and right. You can argue that he's only being true to himself and keeping things "100" but at the ene of the day, just like that ice cream cone, there's some things that just won't go away. Over the course of 14 days, Gucci Mane's managed to go at all the top dogs in rap. Young Jeezy. T.I. Yung Joc. Nas. Nicki Minaj. French Montana. Yo Gotti. WTF? Y'all are pretty much up to speed regarding the first three, so let's see what's what with the most recent.

"Does Nas make a 150 blood money per week off a mixtape," Gucci asked in a video. "Yeah, blood money. Nas' f*cked up right now. Yeah. Me and you got [whips], I just bought me [something]. Don't you have a drop top? ... You got the white one, I'm getting the black one? Nas got one? [laughs]" (Hood Affairs TV)

I thought this was bad. Not so much b/c I think Gucci's lying, I mean, we all know that Nas is broke but just the manner that he went about it in? The taunting? Really, Gucci? Even I got to admit that he went too far with that one. "Nas got one?" LOL!!! Quote of the week. FYI. But then, he kept his feet on the heart of New York, going at Nicki Minaj and French Montana?

"It's like when she came to Atlanta, she gave me a shout-out, said I helped her and her career," Gucci said referring to Nicki. "But at the end of the day, I think a lot of times you just keep it real with somebody, you can't expect them to keep it real with you. I told you man, this industry thing, they want to be famous and people forget how to keep it real and forget the people who helped them get to where they're at. As soon as that money starts coming in, the people start, that fame [is no joke.] It bothers like every artist when they first start coming in. They start thinking whatever they make is hot, every song they make is hot, everybody hate on them that don't play their records. I've seen so many people's careers go down so I tip my hat to Nicki for being a hard worker but at the same time, she knows she didn't keep it real." (Hot 107.9)
"French Montana, no, he ain't keep it real," Gucci added. "See my thing is, I ain't going out of my way to even tell somebody they act real or act fake or lame because all that, that's got nothing to do with me. When it starts spilling into my business and my affairs, I'm a vocal person, I do speak on it." (Hot 107.9)

SMH. The hard part about this is I can't tell if he's just using these situations for promo purposes or if he really feels some kind of way about these rappers. And oh yeah, it's not just Atlanta and New York, Gucci's got problems with his own boys. Yo Gotti?

"He never reached out to me. I still ain't thinking nothing about it because he supposed to be my homeboy. You get what I'm saying? And then last minute we in the lab, we heard about the tweet. When we heard about the tweet I immediately hit his phone like, 'What's up homie? You good?' And we chopped it up. And long story short, from that point I realized that homie had an issue for whatever reason it was." (K97.1)

Gucci Mane is showing no signs of backing down. The real question is, who's gonna finally respond back?

2. Piggy Bank

Is anyone concerned about 5-0 Cent these days? It seems like I've told y'all for years that he's slowly encountering more problems in what seems like every passing day. G-Unit's a wreck, his record deal future seems a mystery, his album release keeps getting pushed back and his movie career, well, you get the point. You can go ahead and throw in Floyd Mayweather, Jr. to that mix now too. Turns out the "Money Team" (did anyone ever really understand what that name/company was really about?) and 5-0 didn't want to go another day with each other. LOL.

"TMT IS OVER the money team is no longer a team. So it SMS promotions that's it thats all.SMSaudio," he tweeted November 1st.
"SMSpromotions. Catch IBF CHAMPION BILL DIBB VS. JASON VELEZ DEC.1 Cotto's card lets go New York!!! Don't miss it"
"SMSpromotions Yuriorkis GAMBOA VS. Miguel Beltran on manny pacquiao card VS. Jaun marquez don't miss it."
"I'm no longer apart or down with TMT promotions. SMSaudio"
"If anyone wants a money team jacket I'm selling mine for a dollar. The nap back hat comes with it. That's a fare price. SMSaudio"
"I move the fighters to SMSpromotion cause the other half of the money team .Didnt put up there $MONEY$.SMSaudio"
"Get your TMT sweat suit NOW!! For just $7.99 on line No shipping and handling.SMSaudio" (50 Cent's Twitter)

I still don't know what this means to be honest with y'all. If you think either 5-0 Cent or Floyd are winning, you've gotta be bugging. Try to make sense out of this b/c I sure can't. LOL.

3. Moment of the Week: Hurricane Sandy

If there was ever a bad b*tch in the world, her name was Sandy this week. SMH. There's no way you could have missed it. If you were out here in the East Coast, you experienced her first-hand. If you were all the way on the West Coast, you heard and saw the destruction it brought. Just like the way the New York Yankees got swept in the ALCS, a majority of the New Jersey, New York and Connecticut area got swept by this nasty hurricane. Instead of focusing on the sad, destructive part, I wanted to acknowledge this chick Sandy by highlighting one of the most uplifting things that came out of it, courtesy of Coco Austin and Sean Price.

If there was one bright spot in the chaos of Hurricane Sandy ... it was the strength and resolve of Coco Austin ... who braved rain and winds to make sure the masses would still get the opportunity to ogle her breasts. Coco played the role of weather girl last night ... giving a play-by-play of the storm from her balcony in New Jersey. Like a true pro, Coco stayed focused ... and refused to let the wind blow her jacket over her boobs during her report. (TMZ)

In one of the funniest album promos we've seen in a long time, Brooklyn MC Sean Price braved Hurricane Sandy to let his fans know that his album "Mic Tyson" would still be dropping today. Dressed in a scully and goggles on the Canarsie Pier, Sean P gave a pubic service announcement for everyone in the 'hood who wasn't able to evacuate their building. "This just in...and I quote...yo, son Popeye's is closed, McDonald's is closed, Starbucks is closed, but Kennedy's Fried Chicken on Saratoga is open!" (The Urban Daily)

While there's not enough money to repair some things that were lost courtesy of Hurricane Sandy like lives and cherished memories, it's thanks to folks like Coco and Sean that we were able to try and laugh off the pain. Big props for the both of them stealing a bit of shine, I can't even hate on the fact it was probably more for promo purposes than due to their true concern. Good stuff.

4. Mrs. Butterworth: Yoncee

I don't know about y'all, but I've realized one problem from this section. As much as we love to drool over the women that get the weekly spotlight in here, there's a lack of realism that is too overbearing to ignore. About 3/4 (maybe even more) of the women in here wouldn't even pay the average one of y'all the time and day. LOL. Seriously though, as much as they try to portray themselves as regular gals, could any of us really think they'd settle for anything other than either a baller or sugar daddy? Well, that brings us to today's Mrs. Butterworth. If there were ever a woman that looked good and actually seemed like you had a chance of taking her out to dinner, Yoncee is the type. Good looking, but not "too" good looking. Sexy but not "too" sexy. Thick but not...well, you get the point. Feast your eyes on this treat:

5. Rappers Say The Darndest Things

I'm sorry, but y'all know I had to do it. Blame it partially on the fact that b/c of Hurricane Sandy, there wasn't a lot of "fresh" things to look through in regard to quotes but then again, looking at what we're dealing with in Delonte West, he more than ever is worthy of an entire post dedicated to him. Sorry, I know y'all would prefer to see this in a "Moment of the Week" spot but what this doggy said about LeBron James' mother? LOL!!! For starters, the last thing "Mama James" could ever be considered is a mother. This chick is more of a party animal than those "Girls Gone Wild" chicks. LOL. Use your own judgement, y'all, but if you ask me Delonte is delusional right here.

West says Gloria James reminded him of his single mother, Delphina Addison, who raised Delonte and his siblings to be "happy-poor, just enjoy life and the blessings that God has given us. "If we want to continue to grow as a human race, what are we teaching our kids if we try to make humor and fun out of stuff like that?" West says of the rumor. "Number one, something like that never happened. I don't know where they got that from. For a strong black woman like that, for people to try to tear her down, that's terrible. That's terrible in so many ways."

***What more can I tell y'all than to be safe in the recovery of Hurricane Sandy. Even if you're on the other side of the world, you either know somebody or have seen the coverage of what's gone down out here. Call or send a text message to someone in the Tri-State area, there's nothing like positivity during these rough times. I'll catch y'all on Tuesday! --BB***
