December 2009

1) A video tour of Lil Wayne’s Florida mansion….
What? no gold tub like Percy Miller, or gold toilet like Kimora? (“Where dey [don’t] do that at?” (c) anti-WakaFlockaFlame) This place looks like like a rental, or a video shoot location. Gorgeous, but sterile.

soo….I’m back from the ‘Go, but sadly I didnt get to catch up with old friends or new, it was such a short trip, I just hung out with the family, ate bomb-ass home-cooked Korean food (traditional new year’s fare: rice-cake soup, plus a new lobster claw bibb lettuce salad concoction, and bbq short ribs aka kalbi), and nursed this nagging cough I still have. But I also left my computer off, so today, it was time to catch up….come to find out….not a lot happened. Above is a video of Wayne’s crib via his YM artist JR. I’ve heard that at one point he had a fly home in Miami but was still paying to live in an exorbitant penthouse at the Setai, but that was a couple yrs ago.

Moving on…

2) A breakdown of the Mary J. Blige vs her husband Kendu at her release party last week appears here. Yes, I have heard that there was an altercation, but no, I don’t think any flirting waitress was involved. It was over a family member. And I hope it’s all settled by now.

3) Scott Storch tells Allhiphop that he’s been talking to Shyne during his incarceration and will be working on his new album. I’m gonna go out on a limb here, and say…I think there are couple big name producers who are having talks with or about Shyne of late…So these revelations will keep coming as folks try to angle their way around this project.

4) Kanye West and Amber Rose helped out at the LA Mission, serving food to the homeless. Big up yourselves! That’s awesome. (They did not serve food in the above outfits, of course) (via BoomBox)

5) Rihanna romped on the beaches of Barbados in a super cute bandeau bikini. She also had a wedgie. (via TheBlemish)

6) J.Lo and Mark Anthony attended a football game in Florida, and the dress code was apparently called for  “On the 6”-vintage (for her) and chest-naked-creepy (for him). (via ContactMusic)

7) Ron Mexico’s take on the Lupe Fiasco vs YN-Rant (via XXL)

Mikey: Last night, Juelz & Jimmy hit the NYC club circuit and invaded Suzie Wongs for an impromptu performance. Up top, Elz performs his remixes to “Swag Surfin” & “Gangsta Luv” and below club security’s’ favorite Jim Jones rocks the house with his bars on “Love Come Down”.

Mikey: These dudes got the internet goin nuts [ (c) Paul Wall ] with this one and for good reason. I can’t even explain but I wanna go read through the booklet of my Black Star CD just for nostalgic value, this joint just puts me back in that mind-state. All the emcees come correct here but man, Hov’s new young gunner really gets his shine on,  “Dog, I’m on a higher level/ I’m on top of nose bleeds/ N*ggas say they sick but when they rock they don’t sneeze”

Mikey: My future baby’s mother and Loso link up for the visual to “More Than Love” off Amerie’s In Love & War. One of my fav cuts from the album, say what you want… sh*t’s still my jam.

Mikey: Considering that Cam’s rocking the same fit he wore in the “Popeyes” video, I think it’s safe to say that this interview is at least over a month old. If you remember the last Cam “interview” we posted, he was riding in a shopping cart at the grocery store. Killa! This time HipHopBeef sits down with Mr. Giles at a Houlihans Bar & Grill for some more amusing chatter. Here’s the skinny….

1. Cam’s juelz jewels have clarity
2. He doesn’t wear skinny jeans cuz his wallet is too big
3. Cam respects Jay for his sales of BP3
4. He feels every rapper exaggerates in their rhymes, even the Pharcyde
5. Interscope reached out for a Cam & Mase album (Not likely to happen)
6. Cam doesn’t feel Dipset is responsible for popularizing the Bloods in NYC
