Slick Pulla’s Cousin Addresses Rumors Regarding Waka Flocka Incidents

Queial of Da Congressmen addressed allegations that have been rampantly spreading across the net, concerning recent altercations with rappers Waka Flocka and Gucci Mane.

Queial, who hails from Atlanta’s Zone 1 on the West Side, is the cousin of rapper Slick Pulla, who has a long running feud Waka Flocka.

A video of the confrontation hit various Hip-Hop websites Wednesday as Gucci Mane attempted to shoot a video [watch here].

The Congressmen are signed to Prestige Entertainment, Slick Pulla’s imprint.

The group consists of Queail Nitty, Put on Tone, Lil Cord, Joe Chinks, Juan Don, Lil Bussie, John Doe, Juvey, Donkee Boy, Hoodrich & ISG, TLT Truth.

Queail denied reports that Da Congressman were Crips.

“Not down with no Crip, Not down with no Blood, not affiliated with none of them, but I can say I f**k with everybody,” Queail told

According to Queail, the problem with Waka started because “Waka is not from the ATL period, he’s from the country outside of Monroe.”

When asked if they were among the group of men involved in an altercation with Waka Flocka in Atlanta in the clothing store in March, Queail declined to say, due to legal implications.

“This has nothing to Jeezy, Gucci Mane or none of that s**t. Gucci and Jeezy don’t know nothing about that s**t, don’t wanna know nothing about that s**t,” Queail told “Gucci and Jeezy did they own thang, more power to them. This isn’t about Waka Flocka or none of that. First of all I smashed Waka Flocka for a reason, ya feel me, and that reason was in the streets.”

Mystikal Gearing Up For Comeback

Mystikal is reminding people of why he was hot. The rapper who was recently released from a Lousiana State prison in January is already planning a comeback.

Mystikal who is known for his hits “Danger (Been So Long),” “Shake Ya *ss” and “Move B*tch,” sat down with Complex Magazine and talks about the height of his career, his stint in jail, and and plans for a return to the music industry.

Although his new album is yet to be titled Mystical stated that he has been in the studio non stop claiming “this album is damn near done and I can tell you, these n*ggas is dead! They in some serious trouble! I just threw an unofficial single out there, ‘I Don’t Like You.’ The b*tch is stupid. It’s just like, “Here, nibble off of this until I give y’all the real meal.”

When asked about his relationship with Master P, who signed Mystikal to his No Limit Records, Mystikal proclaimed “we about to go to New York. They got the VH1 Hip Hop Honors coming where they gon’ be honoring Master p for all his achievements, and we gonna perform ‘It Ain’t My Fault.’ it’s gonna be like a reunion.”

Nicki Minaj Sextape Reportedly To Be Released

As she continues her rise to fame Nicki Minaj has become the latest celebrity to be named in a sex tape scandal.

A sex tape of Young Money’s Harajuku Barbie has reportedly surfaced showing a pre-fame Minaj engaged in various sex acts.

The tape is reportedly being sold for over $100,000 and shows a younger version of Nicki Minaj performing sexually on camera.

Excerpts from the tape are expected to leak to the net soon but no word on whether it features men or women in the scenes.

As previously reported Nicki has admitted to being an openly bi-sexual woman.

She told Details magazine that she hopes rap becomes more “gay friendly” so that an openly gay male rapper can prevail.

“I think the world is getting more gay-friendly, so hip-hop is too. But it’s harder to imagine an openly gay male rapper being embraced. People view gay men as having no street credibility. But I think we’ll see one in my lifetime…”

She also told Details that she views herself as a role model and feels pressure to tone down her racy image.

“I do. I’m a role model now. I didn’t know I was gonna have 13-year-old fans, so I’ve tried to change a few things here and there. But I also know that the girls don’t want me to be Miley Cyrus, either.”

is beanie segel gay??lol wow shit is to funny check it

Lil Wayne's Jail Time Is A Joke, Nicki Minaj's $100K Sex Tape For Sale, Lloyd Banks' "Beamer" Crashes

In this week's Pulse Report, doggies, we lock and load seven days back to feel like dumb a**es for taking Lil Wayne's jail time serious, learn about Nicki Minaj's sex tape hitting the market, try to understand how Lloyd Banks' "Beamer, Benz or Bentley" remix got so f*cked up and oh SOHH much more!

[Editor's Note: The views of this column do not necessarily reflect those of]

1. The Joke Is On You

D*mn doggies, for a few weeks I really took this guy Little Weasel serious. No f*cking bullsh*t. I even did a shout-out on here talking about his street credibility being upgraded since his a** is really behind bars. Well, no worries about the cred being taken away, I'm just in shock of how dumb we all look for taking this whole act like it's a scene straight outta Shawshank Redemption where Wayne is fighting for his dear life to make it another day. SMFH. The amount of tributes, shout-outs and "reaction" stories @sohhdotcom, @allhiphop, @mtvnews, @vibe, etc, etc have actually made me shake my head in disgust. Actually, not even in disgust but in just shock that we have put more emphasis on this guy's jail break than other sh*t going on in the world like the Tennessee flood, Gulf of Mexico oil disaster or the latest Kat Stacks video rant. LMFAO. F*ck it though doggies, it's rap. Let's see how many of your favorite rappers had words of "wisdom" to give Wayne.


"Wayne is a trooper," Diddy said in an interview. "Wayne is doing great...I live in New York. It wouldn't have been right if I didn't go see him and check on his health and well-being. But the status of where that's at, that's his personal business...I think we gonna miss a certain energy that Wayne has...I'm just happy he doesn't have to do a lot of time and that he'll be out, and hopefully he'll use the time wisely and use it in a positive way."

Lil Twist

"We'll be fine because [Wayne] has such a big name and now we have three of the hottest stars in the world, including Drake and Nicki, so we can't lose. We're gonna continue to run this game. This whole experience has taught me to stay humble and not to get in trouble. I don't even think my bro did anything wrong. With him being who he is and doing what he does, he needs protection, but there's different rules in every spot so we're gonna just make it through.....I just want him to be proud when he sees me. I love my bro."

Gudda Gudda

"I talk to [Wayne] probably about two to three times a week," he revealed in an interview. "I let him know about everything that I've been recording and basically, he just tells me to keep going. [Wayne] is behind me 100 percent. He calls me with a lot of ideas and I execute them. I just go in the studio, knock it out."

Jay Sean

"Either Baby will go in one week and Slim will go the other week. His boys will go and see him. [Wayne is] good. He's doing well. I think the hardest thing for Wayne right now is not being in the studio. That's it. That's probably the only thing; he's probably dying to spit.....Hopefully he's not getting into any trouble. They say he's getting better and better. He's more positive. He can't wait to come out."

^ LMFAO!!! Are these doggies f*cking serious? Wayne is a trooper? Wayne is your bro? Wayne calls Garbage Garbage Gudda Gudda more than his baby mamas? SMFH!!! Stop it, doggies. Really? I could let March slide since he went in early, maybe even a few weeks from April, but it's f*cking May 21st and there are still questions about how these guys feel about Wayne being in jail? SMFH. Unless they took the dumba** Drake approach and said is was a conspiracy, then just shut the h*ll up with your walk down memory lane a**es. SMFH. Aight, so maybe I'm a little bit hyped, but after hearing Wayne brag about Rikers Island and play down his a** getting busted on some BREAKING NEWS bullsh*t with the MP3 player this week, I have no sympathy for this doggy.

"Ain't too much, I got in a little trouble and whatnot, you feel me," Wayne added about being caught with headphones and a MP3 charger. "Yeah, they tried to bang me with that. ... But I can't live without my music, Scoob. You know how it is, man. I needed my music. It's all good. I had to take my little slip up. I ain't trippin'. Players f--- up."

^ SMFH. Even though we know he's lying out of his fake a** teeth mouth about having a penthouse, you can't help but be mad as sh*t about his excitement over the phone from RIKERS ISLAND. SMFH. Doggies, between y'all and me, I've never been locked up before but even when my a** was in detention back in the old days and I missed my bus, I was STILL scared as h*ll to call my friends' parents for a ride home. So doggies, don't let this media hype and all these "reaction" stories throw you off, Wayne's a** got off lucky and he is having the time of his life right now behind bars. No sympathy.

2. Cash 4 A**

LMFAO!!! D*mn, this Barbie doesn't even have an album out yet and she's getting caught up in some f*cking sex tape rumors? LMFAO!!! Who does she think she is? Cassie? LOL. Well, in all fairness, Cassie did drop her Bad Boy 2006 dud before being completely shelved and getting those coochie photos out. F*ck it, let's keep it moving. Turns out Nicki Minaj is the latest entertainer to have some XXX-treme sh*t circulating on the Internet or getting "ready" to circulate on the Internet if the price is right. $500? $1000? $100,000? LMFAO!! WTF!?!?! MediaTakeOut says what???

Oh mee . . . oh MYYYY!!! just got a PRIVATE SCREENING of a new EXPLICIT VIDEO - starring what appears to be a young NICKI MINAJ. The tape, which shows VERY EXPLICIT AND GRAPHIC scenes, was supposedly made a few years ago, before Nicki got hot. And in it it shows Nicki Minaj (or someone that looks a LOT LIKE HER) doing all kinds of freaky stuff. The people who had the tape are looking to sell the contents for $100,000. Obviously we ain't that kinda BREAD . . . but according to them, they've already got one person lined up to pay the price. As soon as they negotiate the deal, they'll allow us to post an excerpt.

^ Normally I don't post the rumor sh*t and really don't go outside of what @sohhdotcom has covered for Pulse Report, but too many FaceBook doggies are talking about this so we have to put it down. $100,000 for a sex tape of Nicki Minaj? LMFAO! Can't lie, even though that's f*cking chump change when you think about Kim Kardashian pulling out with a million or something for that Ray J sex tape to get released, if this comes BEFORE Nicki got the a** plants, nose job, fake teeth, etc, etc, then sh*t, the going price was probably $25K to start with. Even though I don't f*ck with porn like that, I WOULD pay a grip to get the tape just to bring it to one of her concerts to sign. LMFAO. *Searches Google For Nicki Minaj Sex Tape Leak*

3. What Happened To That Boy?

Before we get the "F*ck G-Unit" co-signs/disses going, let's be clear. Sha Money XL is probably the ONLY person in that camp who is actually not in the red and may be able to make some money over at Def Jam b/c from hearing Lloyd Banks' "Beamer, Benz Or Bentley" remix it's d*mn there evident no one knows what the f*ck to do when you have a hot a** record. F*ck it, it's true, I said the "Beamer" sh*t was aight at best, but then to REMIX it with a beat that sounds more boring than your parents on the sh*tter? SMFH.

"I had about six different beats," Banks said. "Just sitting with 5-0 [Cent], he brought it to my attention to try and change the element a little bit. Being that already 40 or 50 artists already rapped on the [original] beat, it's kinda hard to decipher what's the real remix. If they all rapping to the same beat, you can just patch it with the other 40, 50 artists and make a mega-mix and not know what the official remix is. The beat change lets people know off the rip 'This is the official remix.' I'm pretty sure they'll be blending the original beat in with it anyway."

^ I should have KNOWN f*cking 5-0 was behind making the beat sound horrible as f*ck. SMFH. Y'all want to know why this sh*t is a flop already? It's b/c it came out last Friday and ain't getting radio play on the stations today. SMFH. Banks must think he's in chill mode still b/c if he hasn't heard, EVERYONE has hot sh*t out right now. Eminem's "Not Afraid," Rick Ross' "Super High," Diddy's "Hello, Good Morning" are all better than that soft-a** remix. Banks still rips his sh*t lyrically but it's the fact that he uses a new beat, same chorus and then puts a dope a** rapper like Jadakiss on and then f*cks things up with The-Dream and Yo Gotti. SMFH. Actually, Banks even did a break-down of why he went with these four doggies. SMFH.

The-Dream: "I had spoke to couple of different R&B artists. That's an element that I think helps. Everybody wants to be a part of that record. I don't think it has to be kept to one lane. I've heard Spanish versions to [the original], Jamaican versions to it, Haitian versions to it. I got a feel of what the melodic feel would bring to the record. The-Dream, he was already doing [his own version]. Once I caught wind of it, I was like, 'Yo, let me get that. Don't put that out.' "

Yo Gotti: "Yo Gotti, I had spoke to him directly. I spoke to him a couple times, told him I wanted to get something done with him. Before that opportunity presented itself, the [song] bubbled all down South in Memphis. I was like, 'Let's get Gotti on it.' He has the street in a chokehold. We'll probably have more records come in the future also. He definitely has a lane, man, and I wish him luck."

Ludacris: "Luda, that's the homie, man. Just through that, [it] wasn't really nothing [difficult]. Luda is out there bubbling, platinum plaques and all that, #1 records, where I'm trying to take it. Shout-out to Luda and shout-out to [Disturbing Tha Peace co-founder] Chaka [Zulu] for making that happen."

Jadakiss: "That wasn't nothing. That wasn't nothing but a phone call. I spoke to him a few times about the record. I had his verse for a minute. I had his verse while I was overseas and everyone was leaking their versions. We built the beat around his verse. He adds that extra, that lyrical element, that New York City vibe to it. I didn't want to stand alone on that joint."

^ LMFAO!!! Here's why Banks FAILED. If you do a remix, do it right when the "Beamer" sh*t is losing steam. Basically, you waited so long that Eminem laid it to rest and it could never be brought back to life. Second, HORRIBLE A** FEATURES. We'll let you slide with Jada, but Luda hasn't spit good since Release Therapy on that "Screw Up" record, and you should be ashamed of yourself for f*cking with Dreamcast and Your Got. SMFH. Last, CALL SWIZZ BEATZ for any remix b/c that beat you used sounded like something from an old Nintendo 64 game. SMFH. You're done, Banks, sorry b/c you were always my favorite, doggy.

4. You're Broke, Twisted & Girl Is A H*e

Peedi Crakk Crack. LMFAO. No bullsh*t doggies, I almost want to skip this section and go right into "STFU" Honors just b/c I feel ignorant for even giving this doggy some shine up in here. F*ck it, let's keep sh*t a hundred and explain, simply, why Peedi CRACK is being examined. First off, he decided since he got his a** released from jail, he'd go off and start saying some sideways reckless sh*t that wasn't "intentionally" dissing Jay-Z, but left the impression that he was. NO RESPONSE. Well, now that Crack man realizes Jay didn't respond to viral videos, he decides to start talking with ANYONE who will listen, record and write up the bullsh*t allegations he "now" has to make:

"I want to clarify that [Jay] doesn't steal anyone's songs," he said, "He steals swag, ideas, concepts--whatever you want to call it...Jay doesn't just straight-up jack you for a song. He's just smooth with it. You ever listen to Young Chris rap and then go back and listen to Jay? You almost start to scratch your head. The old Jay-Z never rapped like that. That's Young Gunners flow to the tee. There are actually people that don't know that that [the whisper rap] was [Chris'] flow. I don't understand why Jay don't just say that he got the swag from the young bull...Jay has no swag of his own. He has no natural cool n*gga style. But at the end of the day he has his own path to craft just like we all do and I'm all about making sure my path is full of positivity and creativity."

This, in turn, forces Peedi to fall back and see what rocks get turned over and see what happens. Well, as it would turn out, Just Blaze decides to speak up and give Crack some shine by addressing these swagger-jacking claims.

"I don't really indulge in family squabbles, making them public. The way I look at it everybody feeds off everybody and everybody works together. What we did was make something great and we had a good run," he explained in an interview. "Rather than sit there and squabble about who took what from who, and who did who wrong, it's really no point in feeding into it because I could sit there and point out a million things that people in that situation did wrong...and I know a lot of things we did right. So the way I look at everybody ended up kind of like where they are supposed to be and if they didn't end up where they felt like they're supposed to might be their own fault."

^ NICE, it's done! Just says everybody was family and that's the end of it, right Peedi? No? How come? Oh, b/c Young Chris "now" has to get involved since you sideways name checked him and forced him into a situation against his boy, Jay-Z. SMFH.

"It's family, we all in the family," he explained in an interview. "We work off each other's vibes. That's how some of our best, best records came out. You gotta think when we was in the studio at the time it's pressure. Everybody that's in there gets busy, from me to Peedi to muthaf*ckin' Beans to Jay, Freeway, and it was like really a lyrical war in there. So when I say steel sharpens steel, I just mean we all fed off each other...Everybody got their own opinions and all that sh*t...You know I can't get around it evidently right. I just tell people, quality and quantity, as long as I keep delivering, I'ma get past the comparisons. I think I'll be alright out here."

^ SMFH. See why this rap sh*t is a joke, doggies? I have yet to get any responses to rappers about getting interviewed for Pulse Report, but trust, when/if they do, we won't allow a platform for the bullsh*t. I won't blame the sites for covering it b/c in all fairness, Peedi was with Jay at the Roc and even when they were doing their thing in 2005, but these Philly rappers need to calm the f*ck down and call up Freeway or Chris b/c at first everyone was mad at Dame Dash. Then Dame Dash goes broke and now the fingers get pointed to Jay-Z. SMFH. D*mn, maybe instead of doing the wack a** State Property movie acting, they should have took Kanye's lead and spent time behind the boards. Actually, it's kind of funny when you look at it b/c it seems like the only ones still caking off those Roc-a-Fella days is Just Blaze and Kanye West, the PRODUCERS. LOL. No further remarks on Peedi, just had to let y'all see how much f*ckery goes on with these doggies trying to use name drops and disses to get the moguls to pay them attention. D*mn, anyone seen Beanie Sigel or that "Empire State of Mind" remix diss he said Jay had recently? I wonder where he could be, hmmmmmmmm...........

5. "STFU" Honors

LMFAO!!! FINALLY! Yes, doggies, @Mr.BulldogButterworth's favorite section is back for another week of your favorite RAPPERS saying sh*t that should just put them in "Shut The F*ck Up" Honors detention FOR LIFE! From Nas not knowing if he really thinks rap is dead to Kanye West really making us click away from his t*tty and a** website if we're under age to T-Pain, Lil Cease and Swizz Beatz...d*mn, we have it ALL! LOL!

1. Nas

"[Rap] died several times, but I do believe in the heartbeat of it right now," Nas said in an interview. "There are a lot of new artists, and artists that have been around, who are kicking a** right now. I just wanted to give a boost to people and to myself, to push people to go harder. It's a different world now."

2. Kanye West


3. T-Pain

"Revolver is coming," he promised in an interview. "We're just trying to see...It's hard to sell records unless you're Susan Boyle, I guess. Nobody is selling records. I should compete on 'American Idol' the way they're selling records when they come off of there."

4. Lil Cease

"Nicki ain't really got too much competition out there. Ain't too many female rappers out there. But she's a female, one that's bringing the sex appeal back to it. No matter what Kim talked about, she had the appeal to it. Kim would dress up. She looked like a lady. Kim could rap about the hardest thing ever, but she would still dress up: hair done, she still got on the flyest stuff. Nicki is kinda taking it to that same mind frame. She's having fun with it too."

5. Swizz Beatz

"'On To The Next One' was definitely for my album," Swizz revealed in an interview. "It was the last song on Jay's album. He's Jay-Z, so I don't mind falling back and playing the producer role. That also happened with the 'Iron Man' song for Busta. My three year-old son came up with the concept for the song simply by playing with his Iron Man toy, in the studio. Now they are playing that song on the radio. I respect Busta. He is a great friend beyond the music, so I let him have it."

***LMFAO!!! D*mn doggies! Funny sh*t this week, but what's goodie with all these albums getting pushed the f*ck back? Sh*t, sounds like Kanye and them boys are gonna be dropping later instead of sooner, but we still got hot sh*t ready to drop thanks to Eminem. D*mn, anyone have guesses yet on what Drake is gonna sell? Hate to say it, but I really think no matter what he sells, it'll be looked at as a failure. Doggy just couldn't take the heat and I think he's doing his best to act like he's content. Come on, doggies, this guys can't catch a break. Didn't @sohh say something about Jamaica officials getting mad at his music video "Find Your Love?" LMFAO!!! D*mn, he can't even accidentally get away with sh*t, huh? We'll see how sh*t turns out, b/c at this rate, I'm still guessing he does that 150 to 200K mark. Apologies, even though I don't like to give them out, about the absence from getting back at some of y'all, baby mama drama is under control but I'm in the middle of getting myself a Dell laptop, so prepare for all h*ll to break loose soon. LOL. Stay up doggies, I see y'all!!! --BB ***

Last July, Kim spoke on putting together her new album.

"Album should be out in a few months," Kim said in an interview at the pre-BET Awards show last weekend. "We don't have a set date yet but the song 'Download' is featuring T-Pain and Charlie Wilson is doing very well and I'm excited about that 'cause it's been a long time since I made my rounds. But I got another song that's with a producer named Detail, he's a Konvict Music producer and I love this song. I can't tell y'all the name yet 'cause it might be the next single but just know that this album, I'm feeling real sexy and nasty y'all, so it's gonna be an upgrade of Hardcore." (EZ Street Show)

She previously said the project was put on hold due to her participation on "Dancing With The Stars" last spring.

"Never, music is in my heart and that's the reason I'm on 'Dancing With The Stars' because I've always felt music," Kim said about abandoning music. "Right after 'Dancing With The Stars' [new album is coming.] My schedule is so crazy with 'Dancing With The Stars.' We rehearse six to eight times, from eight hours a day, so it's like, I do have time on the weekends to go into the studio and when I do, I do a little bit. I have a song out right now with T-Pain...I'm about to do a mixtape with my people, it's gonna be called Lil Kim: Family & Friends...And I'm paying for the music videos." (The Q Deezy Show)

Nicki Minaj Undergoes New Rap Alias, "I've Officially Changed My Name"

Young Money's Nicki Minaj has decided to change up her rap alias according to a Twitter message she wrote Sunday (May 23) evening.

Based off the tweet, Minaj has "officially" switched up her nickname.

And now, Nicki Minaj is finalizing the paperwork that will allow the Last Train to Paris superstar to guide her career. The Young Money femcee has already been in the studio with Diddy, and he's been singing her praises. "Nicki Minaj, she's definitely one of the great ones," Diddy told MTV News while promoting "Get Him to the Greek," speaking publicly for the first time about his new signee. "She has a long way to go, but you know how we recognized LeBron [James] was a great one, Tiger [Woods] was a great one, and Kobe [Bryant] was a great one? Nicki is up there. Her story has just begun." (MTV)

New Jersey rapper Redman recently vouched for Minaj and applauded her ability to maintain a strong buzz.

And I look at it as anyone that don't like what they're doing, step the f*ck up and change it then and make a change. You can't sit back complaining on the sideline, you gotta be in the game...They're original, even though Nicki Minaj has her wild style to her or whatever but she's keeping them talking. And that's what you want to do. She's making an impact, I even said her name on one of my new records...They're either gonna love you or hate you but they gotta respect you and I think that's what Drake's going after, that's what Nicki Minaj is going after..." (Vlad TV)

Minaj is reportedly aiming to drop her debut album in the fall.

"Young Money/Cash Money/Universal Motown recording artist Nicki Minaj will release her highly anticipated solo debut album in Fall 2010. 'I don't want to do anything that sounds like what any other female rapper has done,' said Nicki Minaj. 'I want to start a new lane that one day, 10 years from now, girls will say, 'I'm more of a Nicki Minaj type.'" (Cash Money Records Press Release)

Fabolous Ready To Face Jay-Z & Ludacris At BET Awards, "I Can't Wait To Go There" [Video]

Grammy-nominated rapper Fabolous recently shared his reaction to receiving a BET Award nomination and confirmed his attendance at this year's annual showcase.

Mayweather might not need Pacquiao anymore

Mayweather might not need Pacquiao anymore

Something that people may be missing out on as to why Floyd Mayweather Jr. hasn’t made any comments about Manny Pacquiao willing to be tested at 14 days before a fight is that a fight between him and Pacquiao wouldn’t necessarily be the best money-making options for Floyd. Although the fight would likely be the biggest in history, it might not bring Mayweather the kind of money that he wants because he will likely have to cut the revenue with Pacquiao 50-50 in order to fight him.

In contrast, if Mayweather fights another opponent, he basically will get 90-10 revenue split and will be able to keep most of the money for the fight. Why fight Pacquiao for $40 million when Mayweather can fight a lesser fighter and get the same amount? Mayweather isn’t in this for the legacy. He wants the most money he can get without getting hit too much. If he has to give Pacquiao half of the money just to get a fight with him, it’s not really worth it.

And then when you throw in the problems of the random blood testing that Mayweather wants and Pacquiao really doesn’t, it seems much easier to skip the hassle and take on someone else who is willing to be tested randomly all the way up to the fight like Mayweather wants. Pacquiao has said recently that he’d be agreeable to being tested up until 14 days before their fight, but that’s still not a random blood test. Mayweather is going to want more than that, and it doesn’t sound like Pacquiao is willing to budge from his latest concession.

This is why I think the fight won’t get made. Pacquiao has limitations that make the fight basically undoable. If he was willing to be tested throughout like the way Mayweather wants, then I would give the fight a chance to be made. But it still wouldn’t be a really appealing fight for Mayweather because he would have to share more of the income with Pacquiao. Why share with a fighter that’s not willing to take the tests that you want? And all the other mess with Pacquiao suing him doesn’t help either. That has to be difficult to for Mayweather.

I think the fight can be made if Pacquiao and his team do a number of things. First of all, they need to agree to the full random blood testing all the way up the fight. Second, they need to agree to a smaller cut of the revenue. Third, Pacquiao should, in an offer of good faith, drop the defamation lawsuit against Mayweather. If Pacquiao does all those things, I can see the fight getting made with Mayweather. If Pacquiao does none of them, I don’t think there’s much if any chance of this fight getting put together. In that case, Pacquiao needs to start looking in another direction towards the next best opponent. There’s really no one popular right now in the welterweight division for him to fight. The same for the light middleweight division.

Eminem Tops Charts With New Single ‘Not Afraid’

Eminem will join a very elite club tomorrow when the new Billboard Hot 100 singles chart is unveiled. The hip-hop king’s new single, “Not Afraid,” will be just the 16th to debut at No. 1 on the nearly 52-year old chart.

Released digitally last Monday (May 3) just four days after its radio premiere, “Not Afraid” busts out of the gate with 380,000 first-week digital downloads, according to Nielsen SoundScan — the biggest sales week for a digital track this calendar year. The song also debuts at No. 24 on the radio-based Rap Songs chart, and is bubbling under the Radio Songs chart with 10.3 million listener impressions, according to Nielsen BDS.

“Not Afraid” is the lead single from Eminem’s new album “Recovery,” due out on June 22. The single is the first to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 since Oct. 17, 2009, when Britney Spears’ “3″ danced in at No. 1. “Afraid” is only the second rap single to start at No. 1 following “I’ll Be Missing You” by Puff Daddy & Faith Evans featuring 112, which began its 11-week run at the summit on the chart dated June 14, 1997.

“Not Afraid” is Eminem’s third chart-topper. He first led the list for 12 weeks with “Lose Yourself” in 2002-03 and made an impressive 78-1 jump with “Crack A Bottle,” along with Dr. Dre and 50 Cent, on the list dated Feb. 21, 2009. “Bottle” set a then-record for selling the most downloads in its first week of release (418,000), a mark shattered the following week when Flo Rida’s “Right Round” started with 636,000.

Of the 16 debuts at No. 1, a full 10 of them came between 1995 and 1998. Until the end of 1998, a song could only chart on the Hot 100 if it was released as a commercially available single. The bevy of debuts was prompted by singles being withheld from the market in order to maximize chart position on the tally — which is based on combining airplay with sales information. At the end of 1998, the Hot 100 changed its formula, allowing airplay-only, or non-commercially available songs to chart.

Thus, it’s much harder now for a single to enter at No. 1, as radio airplay will usually enable a song to debut at lower rank. But as Spears and Eminem have proven, instant reaction with a huge sales number can trigger a perfect storm and prompt a No. 1 entry right out of the gate.
Hey ya!hope ya having a great day!just had lunch was starving,now i have a meeting with my dud urban chemist.

Styles P Vouches For The "New" Shyne, "I Can't Knock Him At All

Styles P recently reached out to SOHH to share his opinion of formerly incarcerated rapper Shyne's new post-jail rhyming style.


For Shyne, I've been incarcerated too so I know exactly what he means by changing up his tone and the way he's rapping now. And even though I have been incarcerated, I can't even compare my incarceration to his, not even a little bit.

He gave the system 10 years. He's gone through more in his eyes than most men have even seen. He's seen men go through situations that most people can't even comprehend. So for the average person that's never been locked up or incarcerated in a cell, you can't understand where he's coming from or what he's been through.

But for me, I understand completely where he's coming from and I can't knock him at all. I would get on a track with Shyne because he's been through a lot. He has been through the struggle. --- as told to Senior News Writer Cyrus Langhorne
