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
Oh Miguel. Leg droppin your fans? You ain't Hulk Hogan and that wasn't part of the program. That's no way to treat the adoring ladies, brother.

Lil Wayne says that while on tour in Florida, some promiscuous girls riddled his tour bus after he denied them sex. Meet your death in less than eight seconds, indeed. After the jump, the Clipse speak on a botched robbery, DJ A-Trak recalls switchin’ a set last minute, and Diamond D reminisces on shitty draws.

In case you ain’t know so, Fab’s number eight on MTV‘s Hottest MC list. Here’s why:
Why He’s Hot: Fabolous started his Loso’s Way campaign by telling the world that it was “his time,” and the boy from Brooklyn’s Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood lived up to his claim. Loso’s Way — a concept project inspired in part by the gangster film “Carlito’s Way” — became his first #1 LP on the Billboard albums chart, selling nearly 99,000 units in its first week of release. All year, we’ve been hearing “It’s Loso, in case you didn’t know, so …” for a reason: Fab never runs out of ammo with his tireless punch lines and swag.

50 delivers a caveat to hip-hop fans that listening to Fat Joe’s music is hazardous to your health. As a fan of Mr. Jackson, I wish he devoted as much energy to his new records as he does to these skits. Not hatin’, just statin’.

Whoever said Jimmy Iovine didn’t care about his artists? Here, he and Diddy hold court on his patio. Steve Berman of Eminem skit fame and The Game (remember him?) stop by too. Aww, it’s a family affair!

The Chef clarifies that the joint LP deal with Ghost and Meth ain’t done. See, they’re both signed to Def Jam but he’s indy and would love for the treacherous three to own the final product. Still, he recognizes that the fans come first so as long as the paperwork’s right, Shallah’s on board. The only question I’m left with is what the fuck is up with this video’s distracting background music. SMH. I don’t wanna give Gasface, The Gasface but c’mon fellas.

“I was at a point where I felt like I needed a fresh start like A-Rod going to the Yankees.”
Combs is still celebrating his latest record company powermove so he rang up AHH and told them how he escaped Lyor Cohen’s clutches.
“I had started some previous business relationships with Jimmy Iovine. We had a great chemistry with each other. When I sat down with Julie [Greenwald, Atlantic COO] and told them that I had an interest to go sign with Jimmy and they didn’t make it rough for me. Lyor [Cohen, WMG Chairman] and Julie were nice enough to let me get my [Bad Boy] name. I was able to take the name over to Interscope and to still in stay in business with them. I am not abandoning any of my artists over there, I still have that imprint. But all my future recordings, including my recording contract, that will be at Interscope Records.”
According to Combs, the new Bad Boy label with Interscope will operate like a small boutique label, with an emphasis on signing unique talent.
“We are going to take our time with the amount of acts that we sign,” Combs stated, adding that the label will cater to “superstars.” We want to find those very unique artists. We want to build something very special that’s not already out there.”
So Cassie’s stuck at WMG and Puff’s lookin’ for fresh faces. No, that doesn’t mean you Ma$e.

Jay-Z’s BFF phoned in to Peter Rosenberg’s Real Late show and reminisced on the 2003 blackout that prevented him and the rest of Hov’s squad from facing a Rucker b-ball battle with Fat Joe’s Terror Squad team. Later, to please PR, he recalls his favorite childhood wrestlers.
