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.

In today’s Miami New Times, Uncle Luke penned a letter to Rozay for his “Luke’s Gospel” column. Amen?
Dear Rick Ross:
As someone who survived several rap beefs, I’m going to give you some advice. You need to seriously address the threats and attempts on your life. You have worked hard to become a big name in hip-hop. You’ve paid your dues and you’ve grown lyrically since the release of your debut album, Port of Miami, in 2006. You’ve arrived, buddy.
But all this gangster bullshit is jeopardizing your career. No club or arena is going to risk people getting shot. You can forget about doing any tours or CD signings. And if you can’t make money, watch how fast Warner Bros. Records turns on you. I know from experience how venues and the music industry would like to black ball you.

Luther Campbell was profiled last night on HBO’s Real Sports series. Unfortunately, no one ripped it. Fail. Until the full interview emerges, here’s the web exclusive where he talks about being vindicated for exercising his first amendment rights.

Despite his controversial history, Luther Campbell is giving back to his community these days as an assistant football coach at Dade County’s Northwestern High. Below is an excerpt from the NY Times’ piece on his new gig. You can read the full piece here.
They know him as the coach who spends late-night hours analyzing game film, not the man who once made music and drank until sunrise. They know he will drill them, over and over, on their defensive assignments. He will blow that whistle. He will implore them to set the edge and mind their gaps. He will say in a postpractice talk: “Forget football, gentlemen. This is about life. You have to decide how bad you want it.”

French Montana’s got a hit on his hands, but Uncle Luke hasn’t gotten a check in his pocket. On the BET Hip-Hop Awards red carpet, Luke tells RapFix that he hasn’t been compensated yet for French’s single, “Pop That”. The song samples his classic party starter, “I Wanna Rock”. Better get-get the checkbook.

Uncle Luke’s going to Sundance. His short film, Life And Freaky Times… was one of the 64 out of 7,675 pictures selected for the annual Festival. If the film wins an award, it will be considered as an Oscar contender. Raise the roof!
“It’s an honor to have a highly respected organization such as the Sundance Film Institute recognize me and my life as an important part of American culture by adding “The Life and Freaky Times of Uncle Luke” to their 2012 line up.”

Weezy retreated to his Twitter account earlier and responded to Luther Campbell’s comments about celebrity towners taking over his city. They’re in Miami bitch Luke.
I’ve got a message for Lil Wayne, his Cash Money Brothers, DJ Khaled, Puff Daddy and all the rappers from other parts of the country who now live in Miami. I’m tired of seeing these cats using up our beaches, soaking up our sunshine, taking over the nightclubs, and sleeping with our women without investing anything into the community. I want to know when Lil Wayne is going to do more than show up courtside at the American Airlines Arena. Hell, it’s not like he paid for them anyway. You know he got comped.
