Nigga Please of the Week

Nigga Please of the Week : What Would Jesus Do?

mase

Now that Ma$e is official G-Unit, he’s got to go harder than the Mister Rogers get up! If you recall, I was saying that Ma$e was going to return to his Murda days and be dissing three people. The rumor I got was specific about THREE people. So, I got new word on who these three people are.

1) Cam’ron and Dip Set. Now, in our interview with Cam’ron, he said there was no beef with him and Ma$e. In fact, he said they played basketball together. So, this might apply to Jim Jones, Ma$e’s arch-nemesis.

2) Nelly. If you recall, Ma$e’s boy Cudda Love was down with the Harlem native and then found a newbie from St. Louis. Of Nelly, I heard Betha says, “Nigga you know I know that those diamonds, rings, chains, and bracelets are not real.” Maybe M-A-Dollar-Sign-E is mad?

3) Lastly, I heard that Ma$e will be dissing Diddy, because he feels Diddy misdirected his career. Oh, yeah, Ma$e is already dissin’ Loon so there you go. On a new G-Unit song (“300 Shots”) Ma$e said he’ll have “hoes in his church hummin’ your name.”

Riddle Me This Batman : How did Diddy “misdirect” his career when he decided that he wanted to quit the rap game to pursue his relationship with the original G.O.A.T. (greatest of all time)? I’m confused about that one. Mase is that little wanna be thug who you have known your whole life. They grow up and try to assume a different role when you know what they’re really capable of. Yeah I know he used to be “Murder Mase” but c’mon now, his time has came and went. When will he realize it?

I wonder what he is going to be rapping about? I made a list in the comment section on a post a few weeks ago about some possible song titles.

How We Pay Tithe feat. MC Hammer
Hell (On Fire)
Shawty Wanna Pray With Me
So Santified
Dante’s Inferno feat. Salt from Salt-n-Pepa (she’s into the church now)
Collection Plate . . . a remake of “Piggy Bank” where he disses Creflo Dollar and T.D. Jakes
The Mase / Tony Yayo mixtape Thoughts of a Protestant Felon (James is hilarious)

G-Unit in my opinion is turning into another Murder Inc. I don’t knock their hustles but you can’t fool all the people all the time. I see straight through that shit.

VMA Recap

August 29, 2005
So, What’s On The Minds Of White America Today?

joe

Those niggers are so wild. (click for Fat Joe / 50 Cent disses . . . you saw this link here FIRST)

Everyone in the blogsphere is going to comment about Fat Joe and Fiddy, myself now included. I think that Fat Joe “won” that round simply for the fact that no one really saw the shit coming. Do you really think 50 would have said something on stage if not provoked? The likelihood is very slim. I was hoping that “Hate It or Love It” would win an award but to my dismay it didn’t. Oh well. I need to start an internet beef with someone. Who want to
join me? (that’s a joke people)

*yawn*

As predicted earlier last week by the great one herself, the VMA’s went on last night to bore the fuck out of me. Just when you thought the coon awards couldn’t be topped the cracka ass cracka’s over at MTV didn’t seize to disappoint. Normally I would give a recap of events but this was so terrible I’m not going to waste my time or energy with creating a post about it. Hmm, then again . . .

– Tony Yayo’s dance moves reminds me of Flava Flav.

– Like the BET awards, a lot of big celebs opted not to come. I don’t blame them.

– Green Day had the best performance of the night. And I dare you to argue with me.

– Was Lil’ Kim really pissed at Jimmy Piven’s comments or was that staged?

– MC Hammer needs to sit his old ass down.

– The pre-show was better.

– Ludacris could’ve stayed the fuck in Atlanta.

– Eva Longeria looked like an extra in the “Gold Digger’ performance.

– Jamie Foxx thinks he’s Ray Charles now.

– Suge Knight getting shot in the leg wasn’t enough. We still can’t bring Pac and Biggie back.

– Jessica and little sister Ashlee’s comments about R&B were so typical of white girls.

– That white boy that came out with Snoop was not funny. John Legend’s facial expression while he was on stage was classic.

– It was nice to see everyone dressed like they were going to court.

– I told ya’ll we would get trapped in the closet.

– Don Juan dressed down was hilarious.

– Mariah Carey makes me bored when I watch her do that hand “thing” she does when she sings. So I turned to Celebrity Fit Club during her performance.

– Whoever suggested Diddy hosting should lose their job today.

I’m glad I got my party on the days following up to this train wreck. So, what did you think of the show?

Happy 47th Berfday Wacko!

Pon De Jail Cell

Jay-Z’s protege, Rihanna, who has the hit record “Pon De Replay,” was arrested at Germany’s Berlin-Tegel Airport last week because the reggae singer did not have a permit to enter the country. According to Contact Music, the 17-year-old native of Barbados traveled to Germany from Newark, N.J. on Aug. 16 to perform when she was stopped by German authorities. Rihanna was held for two hours but was eventually granted a temporary visa.

Tyson Sues Diddy

Model Tyson Beckford has sued Sean “Diddy” Combs for trademark infringement. The suit, filed Aug. 12 in U.S. District Court in New York City, seeks $5 million in damages. “I don’t want to litigate the case in the press, however, we’re not into filing frivolous lawsuits,” said Kenneth Montgomery, a New York-based attorney representing Beckford. Montgomery told BET.com that Combs’ Sean John men’s clothing line used Beckford’s image in a 2004 ad campaign but never paid him for his services. Montgomery added that the campaign continued even though there was a contract dispute. Representatives for Diddy were not available for comment. Sources said the mogul is in Miami preparing to host the MTV Video Music Awards show, which airs live on Sunday, Aug. 28.

Vivica Wants Fiddy To Shut Up

Vivica A. Fox has a message for ex-love, Rapper 50 Cent. Keep on dissing me baby! Vivica says the more he raps and talks about her, the more men are interested in checking her out. The 41 year-old actress was hot and heavy with the rapper two years ago, and she says it was very disappointing the way he handled the breakup. She says, Hey 50! Keep writing and talking about me!


That’s all for now kiddies. Hurricane Katrina (or Trina as I like to say) can’t fuck up my VMA weekend partying! I saw a D-list rapper perform last night and it was a hot mess. More on that later. There are parties popping up all across Florida this weekend and I’m loving it . . . almost as much as I love the wonders of airbrushing.

Mos Def Is A Joke

August 26, 2005

Mos Def Is A Joke.

Who remembers the movie I’m Gonna Git You Sucka? In this classic blaxpolation parody, Jack (played by Keenan Ivory Wayans) has a homeboy who he recruits to kick some ass who is one of those strong “black power” types. He is very proud of his heritage, Muslim, and afrocentric. There’s just one thing – – his wife is white as the driven snow. Now I’ll give Mrs. Mos Def some “credit”, she does have a lil “exotic” look going on. But who can’t go to a tanning salon and throw in some cornrows and declare themselves such? He could’ve went to BlackPlanet for that shit.

Now I could care less about a black man and white woman being married, do you. Its some men that my white girls can have (for example). I think its just so gosh darn hilarious that Mr. Say-It-Loud-I’m-Black-And-I’m-Proud ran off and got hitched to a white girl. That bitch ain’t Miss Fat Booty nor the “brown skin lady” he made us fall in love with.

Like I told Mr. Kamoji, he should hook up with Kanye on the remix to “Gold Digger”. Makes perfectly good sense now.

The Show Is OVAH!

Now Its Time To Say Good Bye To Our Crackhead Friends . . .


Season finale of Being Bobby Brown airs tonight! I don’t know if I should cry or feel elated.

Uh Oh, Nia’s Next Up To Bat
According In Touch magazine, “Hardcore hip hopper 50 Cent learned a valued lesson from his high profile relationship with actress Vivica A. Fox- he’s keeping his new love affair quiet. Fifty- whose real name is Curtis jackson is dating Alfie star Nia Long. “They’ve been together for three months,” an insider tells In Touch. During an August 6 party at his Connecticut mansion- where he performed for guests including Bam Margera and Lil John- Nia “held court in separate area of the house and gossiped with her girlfriends,” the insider adds. “They played it supercool.” Nia, who has a toddler son, wants to take things slowly and keep their relationship out of the spotlight.”
Hate It Or Love It
But Kanye is having the best week ever. He’s on the cover of Time, tops Blender’s Hot 100 list (also snagged the cover), has the new found support of the gay/lesbian community, and had a nice date. To quote Zeezy, he has the greatest publicist ever.

Remembering Aaliyah

Remembering Aaliyah

It’s been four years since the passing of Aaliyah today. There has since been so much changing in the world we live in compared to this date in 2001. No war, no threats of terrorism, and I was still in high school preparing myself for the future ahead of me. Believe it or not people but if certain events didn’ t take place in my life I would’ve been a U.S. soldier. Ha! I can’t believe it sometimes myself.

When Aaliyah passed it hit me like a ton of bricks. I had been blessed thus far not to have someone close in my age group pass away that I knew. Of course I didn’t know her personally but I did feel as if I did. Does that make sense? That Sunday morning as I prepared for church and the news came across the bottom of the screen on CNN I thought it was a lie. Rumor. This couldn’t be true, wasn’t she just on 106 and Park giving away a free ride? I shrugged it off until I saw another piece about it on another major news channel. When it finally did set in my mind, my reality came down. I was one of those teenagers who thought that young people were in some type of way immortal – – we would be young, beautiful, and live forever. This isn’t true as I know now of course.

I say all of this to get this point across: live for today. Sherella sent me an email yesterday filled with so much encouragement about my own future career aspirations that I didn’t know how to reply to her about it. It went beyond our social friendship on the Internet. It was some of the best advice that anyone has given me in a long time. I appreciated it more than anything else girl.

Okay, I’m done getting all soft on ya’ll. Thanks for tuning into this week’s episode of Dr. Fresh 🙂

Double Take

Hey Ciara are those razor bumps?

Rumor Control

Question: Is that Beyonce in the ‘Gold Digger’ video?

Answer: That is not Ms. Knowles. Actually it is some chick named Veronica who like everyone else is a damn net model. I personally don’t see the resemblance in the video but in these pictures I can see a it a little.

Damon Dash Can’t Catch A Break

Injured pedestrians are treated in foreground and background yesterday after wild chase in Times Square with cop hanging from window of runaway SUV. Aftermath of chase after SUV careened through Times Square yesterday, injuring at least six pedestrians before coming to a stop at Golda Meir Plaza between W. 39th and 40th Sts. Cop carries evidence – a three-quarters-full bottle of vodka found in SUV. A road rage incident triggered a wild ride near Times Square yesterday – with the driver dragging a cop down the block, hitting hip-hop honcho Damon Dash’s luxury car and mowing down six pedestrians. The violent chain reaction turned a crowded stretch of Broadway into a demolition derby and sent people diving from the path of a careening sport-utility vehicle.

I wonder if those criminals were drinking Armadale.

The VMA’s Are Probably Going To Be Garbage

I am one of those people who watch televised award shows basically for the live performances. Since I can’t go to concerts every week like some people *ahem*, I have come to enjoy these performances. This year the VMA’s line up is pretty wack to me. I realize that every act can’t be hip hop but Jesus, can I have more than Ludacris and 50 Cent? Now Mr. Pedophilia himself R. Kelly has joined the bill. I pray that this man does not put us all through 30 minutes of “Trapped in the Closet.”
Happy Berfday Dave Chapelle!

Guess who’s so icy now? Yup, that’s Rev. Betha chilling in what appears to be a hotel lobby with a G-Unit medallion on. So is it official now?

Diddy Addresses Domestic Violence Charges In OK Magazine

OK: There are rumors that your girlfriend, Kim, broker her nose on board the yacht. What happened?
Diddy: I’m glad you addressed that rumor. The first night we were here we watched the sunset. We came inside, the boat rocked and Kim tripped on the rug and nicked her nose on the table. The rumors thatwe had a fight and Kim broke her nose are ridiculous. We’re here on vacation minding our own business. To be accused of domestic violence upset me and Kim.

Do you believe this story?

Plastic Surgery Intervention

August 21, 2005

Plastic Surgery Intervention

I was surfing the net this morning and came across a recent picture of Lil’ Kim. At first I thought it was a white actress since the image was a small thumbnail at the time. It wasn’t until I clicked on it that it was Kimmy. I think it is time for an intervention, A&E style.

Kimberly – –

I’ve been a fan of yours every since I heard your squeaky voice on “Player’s Anthem.” Throughout the years however I have come to develop a love/hate relationship with you. With every new magazine spread you seem to look different. I personally liked you back in the days when you rocked $20 wigs and had bunny teeth. I turned my head when you got your breast implants. I justified your first nose job to my brother. But now things are getting out of hand. You are starting to look like Victoria Gotti. I realize that is your friend and all but it isn’t a compliment. Read my lips, you are not white. No matter how hard you try you will never be. You can ask Michael about it. How can your fans take you seriously and you’re walking around looking like Donatella Versace?

So I beg of you to please use your time in prison wisely. Pick up a couple of self help books and read them.
– – Fresh
[edit] Lil Kim + Donatella = This

Also chek out Hollyhood to see what she has to say about Kimmy. Hilarious!
