Wayne has said he’s been hearing about how he needs to cut back on syrup more than ever in the wake of Pimp C’s death in December. The UGK member’s death was ruled accidental and due to a deadly combination of syrup and his sleep-apnea condition.
“No, he(Bun-B) hasn’t talked to me,” said Wayne, sitting in his tour bus in his native New Orleans, about Bun, a longstanding friend of the Cash Money Millionaires family. “But I’m going through that same sh– with my friends, with my mom. Everybody wants me to stop all this and all that. It ain’t that easy.”

At first I thought I was the only one who hadn't jumped on Lupe Fiasco bandwagon until the homie Magic agreed with me when I was like "I just can't see myself drivin down the street bumpin Dumb it Down." The homies Zeke, C-San and other fans try to explain to me that Lupe is really that nigga when it comes to this lyrical stuff. I always knew the dude can spit but I just haven't even came close 2 purchasing either one of his CD's, not even a couple keystrokes 2 download them. Although I do respect what he does, I just never cared for the dude.
I think its because he's weird. Nah ...
I think it was because a year or two ago when me and few friends of mine seen him @ Jerry's Deli one night and I seen how LF reacted towards a fan who complimented him on his music. He basically dusted her off and kept it pushin.
Or maybe when I went 2 UC Riverside's homecoming a couple years ago where he was headlining and he arrived five hours later than scheduled. It was outside and I was like freezing. No apologies, just a birthday song led by him 2 a female fan where afterwards he told her, "Now get the fuck off my stage."
Or maybe its just cause he comments on sensitive issues like racism like this:
"Racism built this country," Lupe said. "Racism built the world. Racism is the basis of all societies. It's a necessary evil sometimes. Especially to keep democracy, keep us all comfortable."
Wait, wait. There's more:
"I find comfort living outside the matrix, with all the evil robots and living underground eating oatmeal, that's where I want to be because that's true."
Oatmeal and evil robots. Sounds like a potential Lupe album title.
Lmao... this shit is so jokes. If u need a good laugh check this out. No thats not really their Wayne and Kanye's voices either, the character likenesses are just on point! Created by the hilarious people over at Broken Equipment Productions. They have so many more spoof's mocking Dipset, Young Jeezy, and many other rappers.

I'll say it b4 and I'll say it again: get with the WE MAJOR movement now before its too late! Don't try to hop on the bandwagon when they arrive at the ultimate destination, the top of the rap game! I'm tellin' yall man, the West is coming back with a new flavor courtesy of C-San, K-Mak, Uncle Dave and the rest of the crew.

Although you are the God-mc, I am pretty sure u arent aware of my love/hate (no homo) feelings toward you. In the past there have been times where u made buisness decisions that have pissed me off, and there are times where you make joints like "Song Cry" that stays on repeat on my iPod. Let me clarify a lil bit...
That shit you pulled off where u became the President of Def Jam, but also acquiring the primary ownership of Roc-a-Fella record, causing your longtime buisness partners Dame Dash and Kareem Biggs and whoever else jobless, that shit was mad foul. I was hot. It essentially became the break of a "dynasty" of what most of the Roc fans would call the label. It was never the same. The Diplomats left, you made rocawear crapawear, you left Kanye in a rock and a hard place position where he had no choice but 2 stay under your wing, knowing all the while he was Dame's project. I would never forgive u.
As I continued on wit my frustration towards you, a certain rapper that was once on your roster started 2 attack you. And quite frankly, I loved every second of it. That rapper was one of my faves, Cam'ron, and when he came out wit those 2 disses on u on that fateful day I was cheering for joy. Everyone knew yall didnt like each other anyway, and it was just a matter of time before Killa fired off. But boy "oh boy" (no pun intended), it was a failed effort. You barely even replied, making Cam lookin like a lost barking dog in a abandoned yard. Without even saying his name, the most notable line that seem to shut up Killa Cam was the "only time u went plat my chain was on ya neck" u fired toward him. That pretty much deaded it. One shot kill.
Once u kind of brushed off that half ass beef, I kinda noticed or figured out rather, that Cam was just a mere pawn of your once buisness partner, now bitter foe, Dame Dash. It was so obvious that Dame pushed Cam to diss u, because Cam didnt have a legit reason 2 go at u imo. Rocafella fans know that like Kanye, Cam and the Dipset was another project of Dame's. Both Platinum acts @ your label, maybe one of the successful acts that u were'nt exactly proud of. It then hit me that I purchased Hard Knock Life, The Dynasty Album, The Blueprint and others of ur albums, way before I even knew who Cam was. And besides, I dont know Cam, never met the guy so why was I siding with him. Oh wait, I did meet him, Juelz and Jimmy @ the fox hills mall back in like 03, but that aint the point.
Anywho, let me stop dragging on and on. I'm sorry big homie. I'm sorry for turning on u like that. I'm sorry I kept using that "jay-z bites other rappers all the time" line @ your hardcore fans. I'm sorry I burned Blueprint 2. I'm sorry I dont have Reasonable Doubt and don't know where it is. I'm sorry for clownin on u at lunch at school and then when its time for class I turn on blueprint 1 on my iPod. I'm sorry I fantasize about your girl from time 2 time. Sorry for the frontin, sorry for the clownin, sorry for everything. I'm sorry I wont and cant label you the best of all time, but I will label you for ONE of the greatest. And I'm sorry you probably arent going 2 be able 2 read this! Ha! (man i gotta get this blog jumpin)
Sincerely your fan,
Leave yall thoughts!
Ha! Matchin tatoos huh? Bigups 2 chris breezy for hittin that b4 I could. Damn Chris, u smashed one of my homegirl's already according 2 my homegirl. Then u smash another 1 I went to high school wit. U tha man CB what more can i say.. (Don't ask me who the 2girls he hit I kno cuz I aint tellin lol) Comment!
“They were smooching in the pool and were really lovely dovey. They were playfully making out and he was kissing her on the neck.”
The attractive pair, who got matching star tattoos on their necks in January, got in the pool after a leisurely lunch yesterday at the Hilton Kingston Hotel in Jamaica. They were hanging out with friends and at about 3 p.m., Chris, 18, jumped into the water and waited while Rihanna went to her room and changed into a bikini.
“They were floating together with him carrying her and she kept saying, ‘Don’t get my hair wet.’ She was very soft and feminine but he was a big kid and splashing around.”

Alotta ppl have criticized Jay-Z for biting other rappers lines, mainly Biggie's. I must admit I was one of em but the homie Magic Jones brought somethin 2 my attention that i think the average rap fan is not aware of. Peep!
From magic jones:
"On the Jay biting Biggie note…they traded rhymes often…
Jay-Z on Jaz-O’s “Phuck Dat”
“Thats right its Jay homeboy BK all day.6figgaz still it’s do-rag on waves/ betta watch what cha say/cuz speakin on jay’ll/ get cha mouth piece obese like della resse”
Biggie on Long Kiss 2yrs later
“I make ya mouth piece obese like della resse…” (oh and didnt wayne say dat on a song too?)
Jay on Dead Presidents 96'
“…Fuck em they hate a nigga lovin his life/ in all possible ways kno tha feds is buggin my life”
Big on “No Utha” hidden track on Life After in 97
“…Ol folks on da corner sayin hustlin ain’t right/ but fuck em they hate it when a nigga lovin his life/ rappin now but fuckin feds still buggin my life”
It's only a couple lines but nonetheless I did not think Biggie bit anybody. I dont kno how long it took for Magic 2 come up wit this but i gotta give him a lot a credit. This has 2 be the first valid point he has ever made. LMAO- KM
Rap fans know that 50 goes at anybody he wants. He went @ weezy a few times and this is all weezy had to say about it:
"That shits crazy man[laughs]. i aint fuckin wit 50; he too high up there...I can't even deal wit done of that. that's my nigga though. I respect that my name even came out the homie's mouth. No homo." He then went on to say "I respect him. I just took it as a compliment. I'd never go back at 50; that nigga's a trillionaire[laughs]. I'm tryin to get there homie. I'm smart, I ain't dumb."
Man wtf, the Clipse go @ u and respond. U call Pharrell weird, u kinda-sorta respond 2 Gillie but 50 say he gone break ur neck and all u gotta say is "thats my nigga"?! C'mon now weezy... Leave yall thoughts
"After keeping quiet about the rift between Dipset crew members Cam'ron and Jim Jones, Juelz finally spoke out about his own personal problems with Cam in an interview with Hot 97's Angie Martinez.
When Martinez asked Santana why he hasn't been able to release any new material, he claimed that the Dipset Don has something to do with his situation at the Def Jam.
"Me and Cam gotta work some things out, bottom line," the rapper said. "I came in the game when I was young right, so it's no reason for me - to have accomplished and did as much as I did - to be getting treated the same way as I was treated when I just came in."
Man. What happened 2 the Diplomatic Immunity dipset? O well nothin lasts 4ever. LOL @ Cam's santa clause jacket tho. Leave your comments

Dont read this til u watch the video posted above... c'mon its only 3 mins.. i kno, i kno i hate wrestling too.
LOL everybody that i showed that too is like "floyd is dumb, y he wanna wrestle." He's not wrestling hes doin this for the check. U already know Vince McMahon came rite wit the paper. Although i must admit Mayweather is a terrible actor
"REDMOND, Wash. — Feb. 11, 2008 — Microsoft Corp. today announced it has entered into an agreement to acquire Danger Inc., the company responsible for the software and services powering many popular consumer handsets. The acquisition will align Danger’s nearly 10 years of expertise in the mobile consumer space with Microsoft’s vision to provide innovative and compelling mobile experiences to a growing base of customers."
So i guess its safe 2 say that the next sidekick will finally have a video camera, right?
Im not coo wit this.
I'm not coo wit this at all.
For the past 4 years i've been watchin, and observin, and peepin all the hate, all the joking, all the mocking @ the mediocrity of the los angeles lakers. Most of you know that I am a very loyal laker fan and have been for some time. And i remember EVERYTHING. I remember who stayed around when the lakers strugglin during their rebuilding stage. And more importantly, I remember the HATRED!
Now all of a sudden, if u havent been watchin espn or keeping wit the nba, u would know that lakers are currently the #1 seed in the west and the hottest team in the nba. And eversince the acquisition of pau gasol and the emergence of andrew bynyum (who is currently injured), the lakers is flat out killin. And please belieive when bynum come back its gonna be a problem, and laker fans & nba fans know this.
With that being said, lets take a look at the current starting line up for the laker band wagon team:
PG: JP - this guy was estatic when kobe got food poisoned in the 2001 playoffs, now hes a laker fan? please.
SG: Ian - this nigga had the nerve 2 hit me up on aim talkin bout, "we takin the championship this year my nig!" Nigga i remember yo ass was hatin on kobe and was ridin the heat lol
SF: C-san - ok, this is a lil different but me and this guy have been goin @ it in basketball games since like nba live 03 and he never used the lakers, never ever. now we play nba 2k8 and his team is guess who? the lakers! that aint coo bruh!
the PF and Center positions are being scouted as of right now by the laker band wagon scout association currently, we keepin an eye out for them cuz when we win the championship i kno some ppl will reveal themselves who werent laker fans b4. it happens in every sport
So, laker fans get ready for the parade coming soon. If not this year it will be b4 this decade is over and laker haters, keep hatin. DO NOT, I repeat, do NOT change ur hatin ways. Stay true to yo self because us laker fans r watching....
