Lil Wayne’s Sizzurp Confessions, Rick Ross’ Police Badge, Miami Heat Cost Floyd Mayweather $$$
Touchy Tuesday. It’s a day filled with emotions starting with Lil Wayne getting very personal about his battles with Sizzurp. One battle Rick Ross may have to prepare for is taking down Gucci Mane after having his past C.O. days brought back up. Speaking of the past, an NBA Finals Game 7 has undefeated champion Floyd Mayweather, Jr. looking at a serious loss. All this coming up in SOHH Whatcha Think.

1. Sippin’ On Some
Lil Wayne showed the world a side of him we’ve never experienced this week on the “Katie” show. Sure, we’ve known about his battles and he’s done some great interviews over the years but he became very personal and intimate during his chat with Katie Couric. One topic that really stood out was his past addiction to Sizzurp. RumorFix is on it:
Lil Wayne confessed on Katie on Monday that he was doing too much Sizzurp, a dangerous combination of a Jolly Rancher, cough syrup and soda.
“I was doing it too much,” the rapper admitted. Although he didn’t blame the Sizzurp for his seizure in March, his doctor and mother told him to stop taking the controversial drink. So he did.
Wayne says his seizure — which was the first one he had since he was a young child — was caused by “dehydration, working too much and no sleep.” (RumorFix)
Is there any feeling sorry for Lil Wayne? With all of the millions and success he has experienced over the past few decades, is it safe to say his life is in his own hands? Hopefully he can stay clean and continue making history in the entertainment world. #SOHHWhatchaThink?
2. Shots Fired
Is Gucci Mane writing himself a death certificate? The amount of rappers he went at this week was pretty astounding. Everyone from Drake to Nicki Minaj to Tyga to Atlantic Records and T.I. and even Rick Ross? Out of everyone, Ross seems to be the most dangerous in terms of backlash. Peep what Gucci had to say:
“Rozay join list. Police a*s n**ga,” tweeted Gucci Mane today at 5:26 p.m. Pacific time.
The Atlanta rap star is calling out everything fake in the music industry this week. He’s said Nicki Minaj was a hoe at start of her career, he got a thing for Rihanna and Meagan Goode, its an on-sight fight with producer Polow Da Don, and called Waka Flocka Flame out on a laundry list of things.
If all of these facts are the truth, it’s going to be some damage to the relationships of many people to come. If any of his revelations have proof it will be a payday for him.
Added to the list now though is Rick Ross. The Miami rapper has been called out by Gucci Mane for being a Prison Corrections Officer, apparently tired of the Florida gangster rapper faking. Always talking about how much cocaine he has and killings he does, ‘Rozay’ actually took a sworn oath to imprison people for doing those things. (CKHID)
Gucci’s Twitter page has to be hacked, right? He’s said it in the past but at this point, could he just be too wasted to care? It’s almost sad the way he’s just going hard on everyone. Could Gucci be pulling a publicity stunt? Does he really feel this way? Is a hacker behind all of this? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
Did Floyd Mayweather go too far for the NBA Finals Game 7 between the San Antonio Spurs and the Miami Heat? Did he need to be there for a Game 7 finale and if so was paying $25,000 per courtside worth it? TMZ is all over this:
How much does it cost to sit courtside at Game 7 of the NBA finals? According to a new lawsuit … $25,000 PER SEAT … and Floyd Mayweather Jr. still hasn’t paid his enormous bill (allegedly).
Mayweather was just sued by a company called White Glove International, which says Mayweather hired it on June 20th to purchase 3 courtside seats to Game 7 in Miami between the Heat and the Spurs.
FYI, Game 7 was on June 20th … which means Mayweather purchased the tickets the day of the game. Pretty ballsy.
According to the lawsuit, each ticket cost $25,000. White Glove says Mayweather also purchased an additional ticket in the first row for $5,000. Four tickets total.
All told, the bill came to $80,000 … and White Glove says Mayweather still hasn’t covered the tab.
It’s suing for the entire sum plus interest. Calls to Mayweather’s camp weren’t returned. (TMZ)
For someone who carries themselves as “Money Mayweather” and the “Money Team” it seems like Floyd either doesn’t want to pay the tab or isn’t really living that money life. #SOHHWhatchaThink?
