gucci-mane

Gucci Mane’s never been the one to hold his thoughts. After firing at Young Jeezy and T.I. earlier this month, the Brick Squad general had more to get off his chest. During a visit to Atlanta’s Hot 107.9, Gucci didn’t have pleasant words towards Nicki Minaj, French Montana, and Yo Gotti. In Nicki Minaj and French Montana’s case, Gucci Mane feels appreciation hasn’t been returned to his 1017 camp where Waka Flocka’s mother Debra Antney managed both artists at one point in time. Nicki’s worked her way up to pop super stardom with YMCMB, while French’s on the cusp of major success aligning with Rick Ross’ Maybach Music Group and Diddy’s Bad Boy Records.

“It’s like when she came to Atlanta she [Nicki] gave me a shout out and said I helped her in her career. But at the end of the day I just think you keep it real with somebody you can’t expect them to keep it real with you. I told you man in this industry people wanna be famous and forget the people that helped them get to where they at. I tip my hat to Nicki for being a hard worker, but at the same time she know she ain’t keep it real.”

Loved by many, late painter/TV host Bob Ross had a unique way of spreading his love of art to the world. His one-of-a-kind show on PBS taught and entertained at the same time. Even hip-hop cats were akin to the man. Boot Camp’s Sean Price was a true fan of the real Ross. For a special Halloween edition of his web series, P pays tribute to the legend in “The Joy of Painting” (Brownsville).

P is also doing a contest for fans to win paintings done by “Sean Ross.” Enter here.

Bruno Mars has to watch out for those “Young Girls,” the Grammy Award-winning singer debuts the second single off his upcoming sophomore album. Debuted earlier this month during his Saturday Night Live performance, the song speaks on relationships with those young females that cause all sorts of problems. As Bruno seeks for something long lasting he ends up getting burned time and time again, that doesn’t stop the singer and he keeps his pursuit of the young in-experienced kind.

Bruno’s Unorthodox Jukebox arrives December 11th, lead by the single “Locked Out of Heaven.”

It’s rare when you get to see Kanye interacting with the Paparazzi. When he reacts to them, it’s usually ‘Ye flipping out and snatching cameras. It almost went down again when a few weeks ago when a pap asked him a smart question about Reggie Bush, while Kim was walking with him. Honestly, what man wouldn’t be pleased in a similar situation? Things are now all good, though, as Kanye and the young lady have officially made up. TMZ caught a clip of Kanye confronting her in Miami and letting bygone be bygones with a simple hug.
