Fuck Harvey Levin and anybody that loves his celebrity news website. First you prematurely pronounce the impending death of Lil Wayne (Weezy Forgives. We Don't.) and then you try to link the horrific actions of one of the Boston Marathon culprits to our culture? "DEAD BOMBING SUSPECT: HEAVY INTO HIP HOP" You don't say? It's 2013 and most kids are into rap music. We've been penetrated pop culture, you cock suckers. "What's interesting... hip-hop lyrics are notoriously violent and often degrading to women." So our music is at fault in this tragedy? Let's be clear the only bombs my culture cosigns is DJ Funkmaster Flex's sound effects. Thirty Mile Zone is prone to post anything to get traffic. Fuck dude and his coffee cup. Get you a Rap Radar cup and drink with us in the winner's circle.
You Played Yourself

Mainstream America may be scared of Uncle Murda, but Mariah and Nick aren’t. Excuse the air conditioner, but after explaining his mini-hiatus, he talks about his relationship with Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon.
A few years ago, Mimi said she was a big fan of Murda’s single “Bullet Bullet”. At the 2:10 mark, he says he recently caught up with the couple and says he has yet to send over a present for their newborn twins. Murda luh da kids.

Uncle Murda probably hates the police more than N.W.A. in their hey. See: Exhibit A and Exhibit B. Pardon the damn air conditioner, but in this clip, Murda explains his beef with the NYPD. So much for that PBA card.

Jadakiss has always been revered for his lyrical prowess. He popularized colorful similes (I’m in the Aston Vanquish same color as dandruff) and spit one of the slickest basketball lines ever. Sam Cassell, what up?! In our final clip, Kiss pops his collar and speaks on his rhyme style. How dare you question his trendsetting? Look at what he brings to the table!

Attn: Dumb folks. The following is not the interview I did with Rick Ross for RESPECT. magazine. That was conducted before Ross officially signed Wale, Meek, and Pill and inked up with Warner Bros. for his Maybach Music Group label. This is a phone convo that was recorded last week that focuses on why he decided to pass on mogul pals like Baby and Puff and break bread with Lyor Cohen’s house. What does the future hold for Rozay the mogul and what’s the plan for his ever-growing arsenal of artists? Find out below.
