RR reader, “Matik!” brought this to my attention yesterday. Here is an unreleased 50 Cent interview with Mixery Raw Deluxe. In the clip, Curt talks about “How To Rob” and fucking up Ja Rule’s career.  After the Jump, Jigga debunks the idea that rappers purposely carry burners for street cred.

Lil Wayne Declares Lakers NBA Champs

The truest sports commentator with tattoo tears, shares more of his insight on the Wide World of Sports. Sorry Roc Boy, Weezy is ridin’ with KB24.

Just so no one gets it twisted: the Lakers are winning the NBA Finals. Now that KG is out, the C’s aren’t gonna go anywhere, which is a shame. You always like to have the defending champs in there to fight like hell to hold on to their crown. Doc Rivers doesn’t want to believe it. And as competitive as KG is, I can’t imagine even being around him right now — how frustrated he must be because all he wants to do is get out on that court. He’s probably breaking stuff in his house, he’s so mad.

Anyway, so now we’re looking at a Lakers versus Cavaliers final, and that’s going to be amazing. Kobe won’t get the best of LeBron, but the Lakers will get the best of the Cavs. I’ll be rooting for the Lakers, and LeBron already knows that. So it’s not like I’m gonna show up in a Kobe jersey and make ‘Bron Bron cry. He knows I’ve been a Laker fan my whole life so it’s all good. That don’t mean he likes it, but he ain’t gonna cry when he sees me at the games screaming for Pau Gasol and Trevor Ariza.

But LeBron will be OK. He’s gonna win the MVP this year. That will be his consolation prize. Phil Jackson and the Lakers will walk away with more rings, but LeBron will get his trophy.

The problem is the lil’ fucker is prollly right.

Jay-Z’s Cigar Aficionado Cover Story

 Here is Jigga’s cover story with Cigar Aficionado magazine.

“I love food and wine and sunsets. You give me a great sunset, a perfect meal, a great bottle of wine— and a cigar to finish it off— and I don’t have a care in the world.”

So much for nice cooked food and clean drawers, eh? Squint your eyes and read more after the jump. If that doesn’t work, pick up the issue at your local newsstand. Support print, cheap ass.

Asher Roth Album Undershipped?

All this talk of Ross vs Roth sales showdown on par with Kanye and 50 is fun and all, but it apparently isn’t grounded in reality. Word on the curb is Universal fucked up and only shipped around 100K of Asleep in Bread Aisle despite the incredible press presence. Meanwhile, Ross’ Deeper Than Rap has well over a half million copies in the few retail stores that do exist. So barring an iTunes sales miracle, it’s doubtful Ricky won’t have another #1 album on the shelf.

Let’s go Internets! 

Fat Joe Says He’s Got Your Summer Banger

My dude Joe La Puma reached out to my amigo Don Cartagena. And Crack, as usual, is promisin’ mo’ and mo’ hits.

This one song called “Congratulations.” It’s going to be a summer banger. It’s just about how everybody who wants to be famous has to be careful what you wish for. Look at Chris Brown and Rihanna. They’re trying to get their life together. They got paparazzi and everybody all on them now, so it’s like you got to be careful with what you wish for. I mean, unfortunately there’s domestic violence going around in this country, and around the world every single day. Some couples get a chance to work it out. Get back together. Now they in the cameras. Everybody wants to be famous. You have to be ready to deal with consequences.

Peep the whole intv here.

Sidebar: Pause on that last question, Crack.
