1. The Champ Is Here
Make no mistake about it, Cassidy is an ill rapper. In terms of battle rapping? Cass is probably one of the best considering his track record and some of the rappers he put in their place. Long story short, if you've never seen that classic Freeway Vs. Cassidy battle, well, then, you need to spend some time on YouTube. But just like Michael Jordan returning to the NBA via the Washington Wizards, you never get to see that player who was in his prime. That happened to be the case this week. After a Twitter dispute got heated, it looked like Cassidy did the unthinkable: Put together a diss record in record-time (pun intended) and dropped it toward Meek Mill hours later. When I heard it, I was stunned. I immediately thought the ol' Cass was back and ready to get his wins back up. Honestly. I thought that Cass was going to destroy Meek just based off the fact he dropped this diss track "Diary Of A Hustla" hours later. LOL. Boy, did he fool me and probably all of y'all. Luckily, Miss Info pointed out a key fact:
This was bound to happen sooner or later. Ever since Meek Mill even opened up his mouth about current rap-battle circuit and wanting to see Cassidy & Mook go at it., the hip-hop world has been egging on a beef. I think most people want it top stay on wax, and see it as just another thing to make hip-hop exciting. But things escalated last night when Meek put some of his thoughts about the current situation on Twitter. Cassidy of course saw the tweets and promised to deliver some new music as a response. He did so this morning with "Diary of a Hustler." Honestly, he doesn't even mention Meek or anything specfic, so Meek has any easy feat ahead of him. We'll see what happens next. (Miss Info TV)
SMH. I was crushed, y'all. It took a few listens before I realized it, doggy never name-dropped Meek Mill. Now while that might not be that big of a deal (just look at Pusha T), I also noticed a few other key things. Diabetes? Afro? Plurals (Y'all)? Doggggggggggggg, word? It looks like Cass had this sitting in the oven for a situation like this. As hyped as I got over the diss, I couldn't help but think that Cass only had this as a quick back-up to a situation like this. C'mon, Meek with an afro? If all this happens to be true, which it seems, I gotta worry about Cassidy. He won't stand a chance if he's relying on this sneaky stuff to get some cred. SMH.....
2. All Bout U
We should be able to file Superhead away with the Natalie Nunn and Kat Stacks of the game. Snitching on ex-boyfriends a.k.a. rappers? Didn't that get played out back in 2005? Nonetheless, just like those gossip sites, you can't help but see what the latest rumor is and turns out she went all-out on dissing rappers. Well, "dissing" isn't the best word, more like "exposing" some secrets about your favorites. Superhead got down with Ma$e? LOL!!! WTF?
Ja Rule: his wife was a gullible dope.
Ice T: easy-to-fleece sugar daddy.
Shaq: was generous.
Bobby Brown: a hallucinatory drug addict she used to have to slap crazy.
Usher: a disrespectful jerk.
Diddy and Xzibit: as possibly on the down low.
Juelz Santana: It was good. He likes to pull hair a lot, and he actually likes it better when a girl rides.
Young Buck: He was the best I ever had. The sex lasted for hours at a time. It was the best I ever had and it got better each time.
Jay-Z - You can't stand looking at him when he's on top.
Pusha T's breath stinks.
Trick Daddy - full of energy.
Mos Def - His breath stinks.
Too $hort - talks to much s-- in bed.
Q Tip - He has an a-hole personality.
Mase - he has an a-hole personality too.
Wyclef - his breath stinks. (Rolling Out)
LOL!!!! NO COMMENT! Young Buck though? LOL!!!!!
3. Moment of the Week: Saigon Admits He's A Publicity Stunt
It's finally been exposed. After all the finger-pointing and bashing that Saigon did last summer, we got to see it all happen again. Remember when he was all hot and bothered about saying that he "never" dissed Rick Ross? Then the audio came out and he had to talk himself out of it? Well, it was only a matter of months until he got busted again dissing Rick Ross, 2 Chainz, [Insert any big rapper's name]. Not only did he say their music is trash and hurting "hip-hop" but he said he wanted to punch them if they didn't change their tune! LOL! Well, it didn't take too long before he got on Twitter and explained it all once and for all.
"Ill be the sacrificial lamb.... But Im gonna wake some muthaf*ckas up.... Somebody gotta do it....," Sai tweeted November 14th.
"Its not about them 2 niggas. Them n*ggas is pawns in a grand scheme. I got a problem with ANYBODY who promotes destruction to our future.."
"Im tired of people telling me to hold my tongue or retract statements because its gonna hurt my career, Im not doing that sh*t no more..."
"And I dont have any personal issues with anybody at all, I just say n*ggas names when I need a headline to draw attn to what Im saying..." (Saigon's Twitter)
SMH. It's actually kind of sad. But I've got to give him credit. Saigon kept it real right there. Admitting that he intentionally name-drops rappers just to get attention? LOL!!!! Go figure, huh?
4. Mrs. Butterworth: Tiffany Turner
Maybe it's because the holiday season is coming up or b/c there's nothing but non-stop coverage of Game and his fiancée Tiffney Cambridge all over the Internet, but I had to rock with a Mrs. Butterworth with "Tiffany" in her name. Needless to say, I had to look no further than Tiffany Turner. When I look at all of the things I love about her, I realize it comes down to the basics. Fly, simple name? Check. Nice lil' body? Check. Cute smile? Check. What more can you ask for in a woman? Sure, she's got some eye-catching curves, but at the end of the day, TT looks like the type you could brag to your homies about, take home to the parents and crack jokes with out with friends.
As you have come to expect, here's a few visuals to make your weekend just right:
5. Rappers Say The Darndest Things
Another week of quotable material that should stay in your heads through Thanksgiving, doggies. We've got A$AP Rocky ditching the high road and boasting about grabbing Rihanna's cake, cake, cake. Here's a reality check, Rocky, there's nothing worthy of squeezing. You pull that same move on Nicki Minaj, then you will be forever respected by me. Can't believe Saigon is still yapping, talking about his problems with Prodigy are Tru Life's fault? SMH. What happened to "NO COMMENT" y'all? SMH. Then it's Lauryn Hill. The first step to recovey is admitting you've got a problem. Lauryn Hill, we're still waiting. LOL. And Kobe Bryant, the one thing that made me shake my head at you is after giving a respectable statement on Mike Brown getting axed a.k.a. fired after five games in, you end it with "Mamba Out." LOL!!!! Really? And last but not least, Freeway having feelings for Nas while he was dissing him? LOL!!!! Yes, y'all, it's that time of the week.
"I didn't mean for the ass grab to be the thing. I don't fiend for fake publicity sh*t. I'm just a trill n*gga. [Laughs.] Rihanna is what I want to be, as far as having a big core following. She's very successful. She's been doing it for years. Think about it. "Pon de Replay".... So '05, '06, '07, '08, '09, '10, '11, '12.... She's got seven years in this sh*t. Shout-outs to that young lady, and hopefully, with the grace of God, seven years from now, I can say the same."
"The sh*t started with Tru Life. That sh*t wasn't even my beef. Tru had robbed them n*ggas, and me and Tru like brothers, before rap. I came up with Tru. So when Tru got in the rap game, he was on some hood rule apply sh*t -- Prodigy stole $15,000 from Tru Life. Not stole it, but he did a verse for him and went and did the same verse and took the money, and then went and did the same verse on some other sh*t. Tru was like, 'Aight, give me another verse.' Son kept ducking. They did what they did with that. I ended up guilty by association. They trying to say, you went on TV and burned our CDs. I didn't burn CDs, I had a handful of CDs, I was like, all this sh*t is garbage to me. I wasn't singling out Mobb Deep."
"When you are on the other side of liberation, just make sure you are not late. Be careful how you judge, there is a lot of deception out there. A lot of misunderstanding out there. A lot of miscommunication out there. A lot of false information out there. And notice, out of all the people who talk talk talk, who's the silent one. There's a lot of chat, but me.... And you know why? Let me tell you why I don't chat back. Because I know that my brothers and my sisters are often times pawns in a bigger scheme so when they, under pressure, attack me, I love them still. It's called the high road. Try taking it sometimes."
"Tough day. I've seen coaches as well as friends come and go. No matter how many years I've been playing, it's still hard to deal with. I had a good relationship with Mike and I will continue to have one. I wish him and his family nothing but the best. I spoke with him today and thanked him for all of his hard work and sacrifice. As a team, we must focus our energy on tonight's game. We must block out the weight of today's news and simply do our jobs to the best of our ability. I'm not sure what direction we are heading in next. All I can do is focus on the here and now. Mamba out."
"Yeah I got a chance to meet him. Cool story, so everybody knows I dissed Nas a couple times when he was riding for Jay or whatever, but I always loved Nas' music. But I was riding for the team no matter what," Free said in an interview. "So we was at the video shoot for "Roc Boys" after he and Jay got cool. We were leaving out at the same time, so I stopped him and I was like 'Yo I love your music dawg' and he was like 'I love your music too.' So he gave me a pound and we embraced each other. I just seen him in Philly a couple weeks ago performing at the Electric Factory. It hurt but it was like helping me be a man at the same time, like you do things that you don't want to do but you got to do it."
***Bottom line, y'all, this has been a wild week in hip-hop. You've got Cassidy and Meek Mill beefing, Saigon wanting to punch any relevant rapper and The Weeknd quietly pushing out big first-week numbers. LOL. Yeah, I won't lie, y'all know I copped that album. One thing though about Saigon, I understand where he is coming from with being angry at the messages in a lot of hot songs but you've gotta put things into perspective. At the end of the day, it boils down to parenting. My parents let me listen to all types of gangster, curse-filled music as a kid but they made sure I knew whoopings were waiting for me if I used that type of language. LOL. It's the same with violent movies. Hollywood is geared toward kids and even look at those Call of Duty games, don't tell me kids aren't on there hard body. LOL. It comes down to being parents and teaching your kids what's right and wrong. Now with that said, enjoy the weekend! LOL. --BB***
