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.

During Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech tonight for Best Female Video at the MTV Awards, Kanye West Gay Fish interrupts the country singer when Beyoncé doesn’t win. What an asshole.
Sidebar: Hov’s probably pissed.
“This Bryan Barber, I’m so mad at him,” says Jay, shaking his head in the back of a chauffeur-driven black BMW. “He goes up to accept the award for best video [for UGK feat. OutKast's "Int'l Player's Anthem" (I Chose You)]. This is clearly UGK’s moment! He’s all mad ’cause they didn’t win last year. Pimp C’s widow is right there, and he’s up there complaining. She speaks like 10 seconds!” Hova pauses and sucks his teeth. “Then Barber grabs the mic….Again! Seriously, when I see [him], Don’t fuckin speak to me.” If there’s one thing Jay-Z hates, it’s seeing a great moment ruined.— Jay-Z, VIBE, September 2008

So we close the RR behind-the-scenes show with the latest from Wale’s upcoming Attention Deficit. No word if Jazmine Sullivan will be joining in on the fun tonight. But this just in: Bunyan got his biz partner ONE ticket and YN will be in the building solo dolo. You can hate me now. I know, you already do. Ha!

Ever see one of XXL‘s celebrated freshmen cover the music of a fellow one? Well, here ya go. Tonight, you’ll see Scotty in the flesh, but this is a gem as Wale proves he knows all the words to his homie’s biggest hit. Also in the other clip, proves he can do a mean Gucci Mane impersonation. And you can throw in a DJ AM dedication too boot. You’re welcome!

Where do you see yourself in 20 years from now?
2Pac: If God give me breath for 20 more years, I see myself changing the world. Because my thought patterns are so opposite from what’s the norm. So I have to change the world or be changed by the world.
Wow. On the 13th anniversary off 2pac’s death, the Lazarus of Hip-Hop media returns with some exclusive footage of the iconic MC. Pour out a lil’ liquor.

I bet you never heard Coldplay go-go’d out before. But most importantly, do you think Wale will come up off his flip cam footage for the Double R? Time will tell. In the meantime, just listen to some Merriweather music. And the band played on! That’s right, we go out and document culture. You should do the same, lames.

Yesterday afternoon, I got to witness Wale and UCB prove to an MTV exec that they’re well prepared to be the VMA’s house band for this evening’s proceedings. Here, they run through two of Mr. Folarin’s biggest tunes. Oh yeah, I’m gonna be at the shindig tonight—somehow, someway. Ha!

Welp, someone’s getting fired. Here’s what appears to be the winners list for tomorrow’s VMA’s. According to this, Eminem swept the hip-hop category, while Lady Gaga takes home a moon man for Video of the Year. Congratulations?

Here’s the final clip from my sit down with Mr. Keaton. In previous conversations, he’s expressed a desire to teach at a college or university. But before you fill out that FASFA, listen up as Guru schools you to some game. You’re welcome Y.G. I made you hot nigga! Ha!
