Rihanna Gets Steamy W/ BFF, Wale Explains His Disappearance, Cops Mishandle Jeezy?
Trickin’ Thursday. It’s not trickin’ if you got it, so why not get things started with Rihanna getting all hot and steamy with her best friend forever? While she’s big on Instagram and social media, it turns out Wale isn’t but he’s explaining why he’s gone ghost as of late. Not a ghost, but the “Snowman” Jeezy is going through a rough month after another arrest but was he mistreated? All this coming up in SOHH Whatcha Think.

1. No Stopping Now
What’s going on with Rihanna? Is she just addicted to putting on bikinis and flaunting her body? Well if that’s the case, no one is complaining at this point. Bossip is all over Rih-Rih’s latest goodies:
Another day, another blunt smoked, another barely-there bikini…
Rihanna may never leave Brazil. Each day she appears to be having more and more fun galavanting around the beach, taking off her top, and blowing smoke in the air. In the midst of all that, Rih-Rih did manage to get some work done as evidenced by the Instagram pics she and her ubiquitous buddy, Melissa, posted yesterday from the studio.
Could Robyn be working on a new album for her loyal Navy? (Bossip)
Is Rihanna just giving the world something to get excited about or is she living her life in the fast lane? Better yet, is Rih-Rih just having a good time? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
Where’s Wale been? He hardly, if ever, tweets, does social media and even his interviews have been rare. Aside from the explosive Complex incident, everything has either been under the radar or mum. Well, the Washington, DC native is finally talking. Tumblr via XXL is all over this:
Where have I been?
Man, I been everywhere. Everyday trying to get a better understanding of myself and this crazy game I have given my life to.
What I’ve come to grips with is the fact that I am not superhuman, BUT super human. I think our culture has made it almost a prerequisite to be “too cool” or “swagged out” carrying a “nothing can phase me” image. It’s to the point that the ones who show they care, get attacked the most. Who ever thought we’d see a day when somebody used the word “poetic” as an insult? I certainly never thought that. “I can’t fuck wit Wale ‘ol poetic ass.” Really? These are the same people who probably have every Pac album embedded in their head. But, I digress. I took an absence from Twitter because I started to care tooooo much. I still don’t know the root of what makes me care THAT much, but I’m quite sure it started by wanting to lead people in a direction that wasn’t as cliché as some of my peers.
I’m no saint. I fuck with ratchet bitches. I say bitch. I bitch about things my damn self. But, I can honestly say, that I try to use my “human” traits as a means of relating to other humans. If I can bare my insecurities and flaws before you, maybe you won’t feel so insecure and flawed.
There came a point where people went out of their way to remind me that I’m missin my mark. Albeit, I made myself a target to slander and criticism. I think it became a trend to fuck with anybody that cared about people’s opinion. I’m not one of those people who make music for material things. I strive to make music for a public that appreciates raw emotion. And I will continue to.
I went through stages of frustration in my career with publications because of my own selfishness and sense of entitlement. I admit that. Nevertheless, I think if we calling a spade a spade, some media outlets be on they bullshit with me for reasons outside of music. But, my goal moving forward is to focus less on THEM and more on US. We all have goals and mine is simple. Empower the people. Empower MY fans and focus on MY fans and their energy . I don’t think it’s humanly possible for me to appease some of these outlets no matter what I create. It burns my soul to hear there’s no message tho. So knowin that I may have fell short of connecting with some of them, I’ve decided to use my energy on US. The guy with all the mixtapes. The guy who listens to every song twice because they know there’s things hidden in there. The girl who can’t wait to hear “Ambitious Girl 3” (Oh, it’s coming). The girl with the “Ambition” tattoo, who gets dressed to “Illest Bitch Alive” every morning . The ones who understood my frustration, hated my rant but understood it nevertheless . I may never be the biggest rapper in the world (still one of the best doe) but, I’ll be the most dedicated to my fans and it starts with this right here. This is rare. This is REAL. This is about us. This is about the music again. My ReRE -Dedication to greatness. What we got doesn’t happen often, nor with too many people. This is an rare occasion when a rare bond… Happens

Is he really this bottled up? He’s on Maybach Music Group, has enjoyed album success and it still seems like Wale has an attitude. Maybe he could use some Twitter love? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
3. Can’t Beat The Snowman
Sometimes rappers need love or at least respect, neither were given to Jeezy when he was arrested earlier this week. Or at least that’s what he’s saying? TMZ is on it:
Young Jeezy was hauled off to jail by cops who treated him like crap just because he’s a rapper … according to sources close to Jeezy.
We broke the story … Jeezy was arrested when Alpharetta police responded to a panic alarm last night at his girlfriend’s house. But our sources dispute the official police report — that cops didn’t know who he was because he refused to identify himself.
We’re told … Jeezy didn’t NEED to show ID because the officers recognized HIM instantly, saying “Oh, you’re Jeezy the rapper” … then started “antagonizing” him as soon as they realized who he was.
According to our sources … Jeezy thinks cops treated him like a criminal from the get-go … refusing to let him make a phone call … and forcing him to stand outside while cops searched the home as they went on the hunt for a reason to bust him.
Police say he gave them a reason … because he struggled with them when they tried to slap cuffs on him. (TMZ)
Does Jeezy make a valid point? Were the police doing what they deemed necessary consideirng the situation? Was this whole thing blown out of proportion? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
