“Lil Wayne Might Cut His Dreads Off”

October 27, 2009 6 comments

Once Lil Wayne reports to prison he might have to cut his dreads off.

An expert on jail procedures says that New York inmates aren’t allowed to have excessive hair on their head unless there in cornrows and it can’t go past their neck.

WDKX – Rochester, New York

As word is still spreading that LIL WAYNE was sentenced to one year in state prison, now come the inevitable questions: logistics.

Among many of the questions comes an interesting one: Will Weezy have to cut off his dreadlocks?

By now most of the world knows Wayne with his signature dreads – he even helped spur a resurgence of the tedious style following his meteoric success. But according to New York State law, dreadlocks are almost always forbidden. Read more…

Police were called to the home on East 38th Street around 5 a.m. Sunday. There, they found a 5-month-old boy with a slash wound to his neck.

The boy’s 29-year-old mother, Tineka Johnson, was arrested and charged with second-degree attempted murder and fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon.

50 Cent Responds To Fabolous Questioning His Intentions With Uniting NY

October 6, 2009 Leave a comment

50 Cent attempted to unify New York Hip Hop this past weekend with a show featuring Dipset, D-Block, Uncle Murda, Cory Gunz, Red Cafe, Wyclef Jean, Maino, Slaughterhouse, Papoose, Kid Cudi, Wale and more on Governer’s Island. The show was a success however Fabolous took to his twitter page earlier today and questioned 50 Cents intentions while blaming him for breaking the unity in New York to begin with.

“Reading what Fab said about me on Twitter was disappointing. I have extended myself to Fab personally to allow him to expand himself as an international Touring Artist. I Thought we were Friends but that’s cool. ”

Law #2: Never put too much trust in Friends, Learn how to use Enemies Be wary of friends—they will betray you more quickly, for they are easily aroused to envy. They also become spoiled and tyrannical. But hire a former enemy and he will be more loyal than a friend, because he has more to prove. In fact, you have more to fear from friends than from enemies. If you have no enemies, find a way to make them.

—50th Law of Power.

Fabolous had this to say about 50 Cent earlier today on twitter.

Its interesting to c 50 Cent unite wit NY artists when he’s 1 of the reasons NY hip hop became so isolated & crumbled..Do u agree NY?? I wonder if this is a law in the 50th law of power book?? I guess it was a good show 4 NY.. But if u asked 50 a few years ago if he ever saw hisself on stage with any of them he woulda said HELL NO! At 50’s peak his grind was unmatched, image was bulletproof, music was ignorantly motivational & catchy, even classic. most never hav that. So dont think im takin shots at 50.. Jus that NY show had me a lil puzzled.. But i love NY so i couldnt knock it if i wanted to. Does Fabolous have a point? Would 50 Cent reach out to NY artist if he was still on top like before? I mean takes price in his new book which makes it obvious every move he makes has a reason behind it.

 50 Cent chose to pick beefs with alot of NY artists during his career and even kicked members off of his squad for doing features with artists he didn’t like. NY Beefs: JaRule, Fat Joe, Nas, Jay-z, Jada Kiss, Styles P…Am I missing anyone here?

Hottest MCs Recap: Milk Carton Edition

October 6, 2009 Leave a comment

WHO’S MISSING?!?!

Eminem failed to make MTV’s top 10 hottest MC’s list after going platinum with, “The Relapse(released May 19th).” While I didn’t like any of his singles the man still sold 608k records in his first week, that alone get him a spot in the Top 10. Other MC’s missing from the list are T.I. and Jadakiss. Would T.I. be on the list if it wasn’t for him going to jail and would you put Raekwon over Jadakiss? Leave your list below.

I think white people will be more mad about this that the OJ trial.

This is a list of rappers people mainly feel have been wrongfully omitted from this list. I may have forgotten one or two, but here it is.

  • T.I. – Jail Time
  • Jadakiss -Forever Underrated
  • Ludacris – Crossover into Hollwood helped him lose street-cred perhaps?
  • Joe Budden – Is it Slaughterhouse or Tahiry’s Buns?
  • Kid Cudi – New Flavor That Stayed Around…

My Questions/Concerns:

  • Gucci Mane – Really??? Why? Too much simplicity is a problem. Straight out of jail and everything is good? Ignorance is bliss…
  • Raekwon – I love New York but I need to see more. One Album… yeah it almost stood up against Blueprint 3 but I think this was a pride of NY call for the MTV staff. Bias.
  • Rick Ross – Did he #5 because he survived 50’s assault and the Officer Ricky scandal. His baby mama being brought out into things should have been a killer because his lyrics weren’t. “Boss” featuring T-Pain was a big hit like his belly…. that’s about it.

Hottest MCs In The Game

#1-JayZ

Spit Fire:

“A hundred million to the good and I’m still talkin’ yayo/ At a snail’s pace I won this race that y’all trail/ Uh, uh, Blueprint’s for sale/ Followin’ my footprints, you can’t fail/ Set sail, I used to duck shots but now I eat quail/ I’ll probably never see jail/ Each tale contains more of the truth/ Of the statue allows me to go into detail/ Uh, close your eyes you can smell/ Hov’s the audio equivalent of Braille/ That’s why they feel me in the favelas in Brazil/ And Waterhouse, ’cause real recognize real.” (from “Real As It Gets”)

Co-Signer: Mary J. Blige “My favorite MC right now: Jay-Z. Forever more it will be Jay-Z. Jay-Z’s raised all these kids: the Drakes, the Lil Waynes. I love and respect them because they respect him for giving that gift. Jay-Z is definitely at the top of my list. That’s why we love him, he keeps going and elevating and blessing the new generation. You can’t lose like that.”

“All my music and emotions is based off real truth,” Jay said recently. “I believe that’s why I’m here and still competing for VMA nominations and Grammys every year. [Eleven] #1 albums in a row — that’s not something you can doctor. I can make the greatest marketing plan in the world … but I can’t make that happen unless that’s some truth under there.”

 

#2-Lil’ Wayne

Spit Fire:

“Pardon the swag, but b—h, its Car-tay/ Long bread, I don’t eat shortcake/ How come I can’t miss a woman like I can’t miss court dates?/ Cheese, but she’s not in this portrait/ Life’s fine, but I do not portray/ And I’mma f— the world, but this is just foreplay/ Tired of hearing bullsh–, bring on the cow sh–/ Haven’t met a smell that’s stinkier than our sh–.”

While other members of Young Money, such as female standout Nicki Minaj, have shown tremendous personality and presence on the mic, the Drake/ Wayne tag team on freestyles and singles such as “Ignant Sh–” “Every Girl,” “Successful” and the all-star team-up of “Forever” (also featuring Kanye West and Eminem) has been lyrically exhilarating, carpeted with ferocious quotables. The prolific duo has planted the flag for Young Money’s takeover.

Wayne’s trusted stamp of quality has even given his career-long recording home, Cash Money Records (of which Young Money is an offshoot), an added rejuvenation. Veteran the Birdman has featured his stepson Weezy on two concrete hits: “Always Strapped” and the current “Money To Blow.” Meanwhile, newcomers Jay Sean and Kevin Rudolf have been able to ride the Wayne bandwagon to the top of the charts with the Weezy-guested hits “Down” and “Let It Rock,” respectively.

Co-Signer: Mary J. Blige “My favorite MC right now: Jay-Z. Forever more it will be Jay-Z. Jay-Z’s raised all these kids: the Drakes, the Lil Waynes.

#3-Drake

Spit Fire:

“Private flights back home/ No stop over, still spitting that sh– that they shot Pac over/ The sh– my mother look shocked over/ Yeah, but with a canvas I’m a group of seven/ A migraine, take two Excedrin/ I’m the one, twice over, I’m the new 11/ And if I die I’mma do it repping … Coolest kid out baby, word to Chuck Inglish/ Count my own money, see the paper cut fingers/ My song is your girlfriend’s waking-up ringer/ Heh, or alarm, or whatever/ She be here at six in the morn if I let her … Make pasta, rent a movie, called hoes over/ Rest in peace to Heath Ledger, but I’m no joker.” (from “Ignant Sh–” freestyle)

Co-Signer: Lil Wayne “That kid is honestly almost to the respect [level] of talking about one of the greatest,” Lil Wayne said. “Like how we talk about Big, he’s almost that and he ain’t dropped. He don’t have an album. Then he’s singing — that takes away from the respect of an artist. So for him to do it and maintain that respect and maintain that popularity, I think that’s enough said. But I heard him a long time ago. When I heard him, I said, ‘He needs to be in my clique to make me stronger. Let’s go!’ ” Read more…
