Weezy Was A Rolling Stone

Dwayne Michael Carter graces the cover of the latest Rolling Stone magazine to talk about his bid in prison & his bid to get that #1 spot back, every post release verse I’ve heard from him has been stoopid. Carter IV coming soon!! Full interview here, spotted at the (2)dopehouse.

And for sh*ts & giggles…


Pee Wee Herman on SNL

Yo, as a kid I must have seen Pee Wee’s Big Adventure 50 thousand times. I know that entire movie & the score. Finally after years of persecution he’s getting another shot in the limelight. I mean they condemned a grown man for charming the trouser snake in a XXX theatre, while the Kennedy’s, catholic priests & R. Kelly roam these streets freely!!! “The Law!!”

This mugshot was funny as hell tho’


Gucci’s a Di*k

It’s not too often you’ll see a Gucci Mane post up here, but if you see it click it, cause I’m clownin’. I wish I could take credit for this photoshop phenom but I can’t. Maybe we were just on the same brain wave. Either way, salute that man!!


Gucci’s Mans…

Initially I was posting this clip for Lil’ Kim’s ole Nicki Minaj hatin’ ass, but as I sat through the torture of waiting for her to take the stage I noticed something more disturbing then her new, new nose. Why in the f*ck are there 4 guys in army fatigue dancing to “Freak Gurl”?? Not that I’m saying have some half nekkid ladies on stage either I mean that’s what Kim is for but why have these horribly choreographed Q dog rejects up there. Wait, wait…do these niggas have on capris with fringes on the bottom?? iQuit!! Freaky indeed.


Did yall cop the Cop??

This @RickyRozay album has been all the rave on these interwebs & skreets. I’d like to know what you all think. Is it more hype then heat or vice versa. Lemme know something. I won’t weigh in just yet, but I will say “the new Biggie” NOT….

Anyways “Teflon Don” is out there now for your purchasing pleasure. As always if you feeling the music make sure you support it. Bawwwwse!!!


Styles P The Ghost at SOB’s

Shouts to the whole D-Block/LOX crew. That Styles P book “Invincible” out now. Go cop…


Weezy F. Baby (is the ‘F’ for film buff?)

It just may be. I mean Weezy has used his share of film references in verses during the years. The most recent coming in the form of his single “I’m Single” (see what I did there). This time Wayne references one of my favorite movies ever New Jack City. It seems those Cash Money folks are fond of that movie too the name of their label is Cash Money for Christ sake. Their crew was called CMB just like the crew in New Jack. Wayne has named his album Tha Carter 3 different times and yes I know that his last name is Carter but Tha Carter was also the name of the building Nino & his Cash Money brothers took over in New Jack, coincidence I think not. Wayne even filmed his video for “Hustler Musik” uptown in Harlem where NJC was set. I think it’s safe to say the homie is a fan. What got me to make this particular post was all the yout dem totally unfamiliar with the songs origin. I asked a group of teeny boppers if they liked Weezy to which they ALL emphatically shouted YES!!! I then asked if they were familiar with the song “I’m Single” they absolutely knew the song & even serenaded me with the explicit version of the songs chorus. Then I asked about the line “had to cancel that bitch like Nino” & none of ’em could provide me with a correct answer. I heard things like “cancel that bitch like we know”, I heard Wayne had an artist on Young Money named Nino that got dropped (I can’t be mad at that kind of in depth reasoning though). I heard all types of shit. I explained to them what the line meant & where it came from and honestly they could really care less. They were like “oh I know that movie…my pops has the DVD”, hahaha. Damn kids!!! It was an enlightening experience to say the least. It’s also an experience I choose not to have again. I can’t stand these know it all, skinny jean, mohawk, reading glasses wearing teenage bastards and wish to have as little contact with them as possible. I believe the children are our future…I also believe our future is fucked!!!! Hahaha nah not really….but really.

Here’s the infamous scene from New Jack:

Here’s the Wayne joint:

Free Weezy!!!
