In this week’s Pulse Report, Lil Wayne should receive a bottle of champagne for making Pitbull relevant again in hip-hop, Rick Ross proves there’s nothing wrong with hanging with cops, 50 Cent gets dissed in the worst way with a kiss and oh SOHH much more goes down!
1. It’s The Return Of Mr. 305

Do people realize how long it’s been since we’ve heard those, “It’s Mr. 305…” lines from Pitbull? It’s felt like years and years and years. Look, you can’t knock anyone’s hustle. Whether it’s T-Pain trying to make some country music or your favorite rappers wearing dresses on-stage, you’ve got to get in where you fit in. Pause. And unfortunately, that’s meant Pitbull leaving his “Mr. 305” moniker and cashing-in with those clubby, pop records that really don’t deserve to be anywhere other than the introduction of a “Jersey Shore” episode. With that being said, Pit started coming back with his “Harlem Shake” freestyle but even more when Wayne made sure to call him his bro after getting straight up dissed.
“Dam pit bull bro I thought u was kool.,” Wayne tweeted Wednesday (February 27). (Lil Wayne’s Twitter)
Just for the record, watch that video up above. Of course Pitbull didn’t do it himself, but it’s funny seeing how much love he gets in Miami and how far those South Beach kids will go to diss Wayne by stomping him out! LOL. If that wasn’t street cred enough for you, then peep what Pit said back to Weezy:
“@LilTunechi I am cool papo but imagine me sh*tting on anything new orleans which I was just there for super bowl the big easy I loved it,” Pit tweeted back.
“@LilTunechi the world shows me love and vice versa but miami is all I got no disrespect just the truth” (Pitbull’s Twitter)
Excellent points made by Mr. 305. Once again, this probably isn’t going to stop Pit from doing those pop/dance records, because we all gotta eat and keep the lights turned on, but at least he’s won a lot of us back, especially me. I consider this that same moment on Andre 3000‘s The Love Below where the entire record is him singing but you get to that last track and he rips it with an insane freestyle, just letting us know he’s got it and can turn it on at any given moment. Applaud this doggy!
