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.
Update: Interview sucks. Zach Howe? Zane Lowe? Who gives a fuck?
Another Update: Here’s a preview of Westwood sitdown courtesy of OnSmash. Here it’s much better. He clarifies he had nothin’ to do with Chris Brown not being at BET Awards and calls Game a groupie. Ha!

14 years ago, Tajuan “Big Noyd” Perry literally made a name for himself. On the track “Give Up The Goods” off Mobb Deep’s 1995 masterpiece, The Infamous, the Queensbridge native put his lifetime in between the paper lines with, “Yo it’s the r-a-double-p/ E-r n-o-y-d, niggas can’t fuck with me!” The bars that followed helped him secure a solo deal with Tommy Boy Records before a stint in jail and label politics slowed things down. Finally taking matters into his own hands with Noyd Inc. and upcoming documentary, America’s Most Infamous, N.O. talks about the verse that made him a lyrical destructor.
Havoc [and I] always knew each other cause our mothers was friends. One day I called him on a weekend [and] he was like “Come to Manhattan, Mobb got a studio time over there today.” I believe it was Battery [Studios]. I was like “Aight, I’m a go over there.”
We must have stayed in the studio ’til like 5 in the morning. [We] had got there like 1’o clock the day before. P[rodigy] was like, “Yo, I got an idea. Let’s do an A capella real quick before the song.” My man Scarface was like “Yo spit that rhyme you spit last week!” I was like “Nah, I ain’t fucking wit’ you. Let these niggas get done. Let these niggas work.” He was like, “Son, you don’t fucking do that shit right now, we fighting in this bitch! This shit is crazy!” He put me on blast, so I spit the verse. That’s actually the first time I rhymed for the Mobb.
I never really considered myself as an MC. I used to just come home from school and copy Rakim lines down so I could know the words. Niggas knew I rhymed a little bit but I was never trying get on. I actually got signed from that verse. I fucking performed one time in V.A. and the girl from Tommy Boy was in the crowd.
If you look back at the video I’m in there, but they actually got somebody else playing my part. Fucking around with these bitches, I had left the video shoot. I stayed for like two hours and bounced! To be honest, it wasn’t anything planned for it to be like a single, or me getting signed from it. If you look on the back of the Infamous album, with the whole crew, I’m not even on it cause I had to go see my P.O. that morning! Shit was new to me, so I would just put it down on paper. I really just [rap] for myself and the people liked it. I appreciate it. — As Told To Brian “B.Dot” Miller

“Stop betraying me!”
I surmise this happened prior to shoving the remote up his ass. In the second clip, watch him go ape shit over his birthday present. With a temper like that, this kid’s got a future in the music business.
