George “BigFase 100” Taylor Responds To Altercation On Set of Spider Loc’s Video Shoot
Rumors of an altercation between George “BigFase100” Taylor (Brazil Street Records/The Game’s Brother) and a person on the set of a Spider Loc video shoot have run rampant on the Internet today.
HHNLivecontacted BigFase100 to clarify what went down:
“Spider Loc welcomed me (BigFase100) to be in his new vid. I welcomed the opportunity. The quick shot was filmed on Brazil St. DUBCNN came and I got the chance to holla at them on a positive note. The shot for the vid was good.
As everything was wrapping up, an old fake ass nigga (from my hood who runs to Glendale to suck Jayceon’s (The Game) dick about once a week) got at me about “havin’ crabs (Crips)” in the hood. Can’t no nigga tell me who I can have on my block!
The nigga started loud moufin. As niggaz started to leave, he got up in my face and to keep it 100% real, the nigga caught me with a blow to the side of the head and dropped me. I started to pop the grease off this nigga. But I’m a thinker and if I went out like that, my life was over.
So to let you know the real, $$$ buys niggaz in these streets. After me and Jayceon (The Game) split up, niggaz that knew me for 20 years went sideways on me just so they could get closer to him and possibly get somethin’ out of him.
Fuck this gang shit!
I been out here for 20 years doin’ it nonstop!
I’m tired of it. If you hustlin’ keep hustlin’! & fuck with yo proven real ones
People wanna see me go to jail 4 life, it’s not happenin
‘I got work to do out here! – BigFase100″
And when asked if everything was cool with Spider Loc, BigFase100 said “we good”.
Lil’ Wayne Apologizes To Jay-Z
In a recent interview with XXL Lil’ Wayne was asked about how we went from being the best rapper alive since Jay-Z retired to being flat out better than Jay. Surprisingly enough, Weezy offered an apology to Jay for his comments;
“I’m glad you brought that up, ’cause I wanna apologize to Jay and his family and friends, because I was asked that question and they put it in there like I was just feeling like, “Oh, you know what, nigga? I’m better than Jay!” They came at me like, “So you say you’re the best. Can you say that you’re better than everybody? Would you say you’re better than Jay?” I was like, “Yeah, nigga, I’m better than everybody!” But I’d like to throw that apology out there ’cause of whatever trouble I caused, I ain’t want that to happen.”
That is nice of him to man up and apologize, but if you remember, his original statement about being better than Jigga wasn’t all that casual and just “thrown out there.” This is what Wayne said in the interview with Travis Barker in December when he was asked about Jay.
“I’m better than him, I’m 24 years old. … I’m 13 years deep with five albums and 10 million records sold. I don’t like what he’s saying about how he had to come back because hip-hop’s dead and we need him…What the f— do you mean? If anything it’s reborn, so he’s probably having a problem with that. You left on a good note, and all of the artists were saying, ‘Yo, this is Jay’s house. He’s the best.’ Now he comes back and still thinks it’s his house. … It’s not your house anymore, and I’m better than you.”
Also don’t forget that after that made headlines Wayne called into Hot97 to add “I want people to just look at it like that dude who came out of college that was supposed to get drafted by the #1 team, which was Roc-A-Fella/Def Jam … They passed on me and now I’m with a good team and a good coach and of course on every interview I’m gonna cut down the team that didn’t pick me.”
Philadelphia Phillies Shortstop Jimmy Rollins Launches Entertainment Company
The speedy switch-hitter, affectionately known as J-Roll, is not content to simply be known as a do-it-all lead-off hitter for the Phillies, as he has also launched his own entertainment company: Rollins Entertainment.
Rollins is the CEO of Rollins Entertainment, which is a subsidiary of his newly formed umbrella company Bay Slugga’s Inc., which teamed up with Bigg Swoop and Bright Riley of Eyecon Music Group to launch the first two acts Rollins signed to his fledgling label. Rollins is personally overseeing the albums of his newly signed artists, both for his R&B act Sergio and his Bay Slugga’s Inc. label-mate, The League, a cutting edge rap group whose time has come thanks to Jimmy. The project also includes the aristry of multi-platinum superstar producer Mannie Fresh and the extraordinary talents of multi-platinum, master mixologist, Mr. Leslie Braithwaite.
“Anything short of the World Series this year will actually be a disappointment for the Phillies. In the past I couldn’t say that with conviction. I really think we are the team to beat. I feel that way because of the additions we made in the off season to our pitching staff. We now have a power pitching staff to go along with our other weapons. As for the launch of my entertainment company, I love challenges. Sports is what I do. I love sports. That came naturally, but I have larger ambitions that extend beyond the playing field. I’ve got my music business up and running and I’m polishing my business skills. Through my business ventures I intend to be a part of something great. Not just in sports, but in life,” Jimmy said.
Bay Slugga’s Inc. will be distributed by Universal Music Group’s Indie distribution arm; Fontana/Eyecon, with the first releases coming during the 2nd and 3rd quarters of 2007. In addition to his Bay Slugga’s record label, Rollins is also a part owner of the HGTV (Home & Garden Television) top rated show “Flip This House.” Rollins also will be launching “The Jimmy Rollins Foundation” this year to provide scholarships for disadvantaged inner city youths in Philadelphia.
“I am not a ‘what if’ kind of person … I am trying to accomplish and explore everything that I can while I’m still young. That’s why I flipped the script from an employee of the Phillies to an employer with Rollins Entertainment. I am a business man. I have advisors and investments and so forth, but I choose to take a proactive role in my business pursuits and with imagination and dedication, create other opportunities for myself as well.” Jimmy said.
Rollins is one who understands fully that yesterday is history, tomorrow’s a mystery and today is a gift, which is why it is called “the present.” Rollins is unwrapping his “present” and discovering all that it has to offer.
Bishop Lamont More Controversial Than Eminem?
“Fuck the Klan.”
Bishop Lamont is speaking out.
Lamont is relatively new to the mainstream, but is backed by none other than Dr. Dre. While still prepping his next album, he has recorded tracks for a new mixtape and much like Dr. Dre’s other proteges, he is dropping it with a slew of controversy.
“[Dre] was like, ‘The only other cat that made me uncomfortable was Em,’ ” Lamont told MTV recently. “I got this other [song] called ‘Street Theology,’ and it’s just looking at religion. [Dre] was like, ‘I don’t know, you talking about spitting from the Good Book and [sex acts]. I don’t know.’ … My auntie is a minister. I got a lot of family in the Mosque. It’s the same thing as it is in the streets, but the kids gotta relate to it. … [Dre] said, ‘I’m uncomfortable, but it’s good.'”
The mixtape is full of controversy, as it shows Lamont wearing KKK gear on the front cover.
“F— the Klan,” he said. “I’mma rock your sh– and make fun of you. I’m clowning them like ‘F— these n—as. You gonna have to find something else to rock, ’cause we gonna make people laugh at you.’ … That’s how people should look at the Klan and racism — as a joke — because they’re f—in’ lost.”
Expect to hear more from Bishop, as he is slated to appear in Detox and Eminem’s next LP.
