Canibus Sending Shots At Eminem…

 

https://i0.wp.com/blogs.sohh.com/on-the-scene/cannibus.jpg

“If Proof was alive, he’s be dying inside.  You ain’t no Hip-Hop messiah, you a b*tch cause you dissed Mariah.  Sh*t like that, supposed to be private.”

It looks like old wounds heal slow as Canibus has set his sights back on Eminem to release another diss track at the Detroit native.

Rumored to be titled “Pop Killer,” the rapper, alongside another rapper known as DZK, digs up the past beef as he goes in on Mr. Mathers.

“I’ma fry you on behalf of Mariah and Michael, put you back on dem drugs, make you suicidal.  You can’t shut the record down, n*gga it’s viral.”

For those that don’t know the history, beef between the two reportedly started back in 1998 before Shady was even signed.  Em states that he was approached by Canibus and Wyclef Jean and was asked if he wrote the lyrics to LL Cool J’s diss track “The Ripper Strikes Back” which he denied, but added that Bus was rude with him.

Bus later tried to apologize for the incident by showing up at the Warped Tour in 1999 and asked him to rap along with him on the track “Phuck U,” but Shady turned it down, allegedly because he felt the track was a diss to Cool J.

Shots were allegedly fired initially on The Slim Shady LP and escalated once Canibus did his own version of “Stan” from The Marshall Mathers LP where he saved the life of the title character.  The two continued to spar with each other up to 2002.

“He’s a devil in a red dress on MTV.  He signed more Black people than a basketball team.  What you tryna say subconsciously, you can’t ride the beat like me.  Consciously, you know I’ll rock you to sleep.  Slim Shady, you a coward cause you scared to rap with me.  The only Black man you respect is 50.  And the greatest rapper of all time was dead right and dead wrong, you shouldn’t even have been on that song.”

Artists such as Royce Da 5’9” have started to weigh in on the attempt by the rapper to wage war once again.

RT@dopeboySHAKE: ‘I’ll be brief and let me just keep sh*t simple, can-a-b*tch don’t want no beef with slim?  Noooo’

Wherever the random diss came from, only Bis knows, but Em is one with quite the track record with battle rap.  “Warning” shows that he isn’t afraid to throw a woman under the bus and his relentless references to his former wife Kim shows that he knows no bounds and can see no boundaries.

Engaging countless battles in his career ranging from Everlast to Cage to Ja Rule to Jermaine Dupri, the white rapper has earned his stripes in the battlefield.  Good luck.

“I remember the first time we met, I ain’t even like you.  Walking around my video set like you was in high school.  It must excite you seeing Black people being tribal.  That’s why Dr. Dre signed you.”

$127 Million Of Cocaine Seized At Sea….

21531219_640X360

MIAMI BEACH, Fla. — A U.S. Coast Guard cutter confiscated 9,200 pounds of cocaine during four separate incidents during the month of October.According to the Coast Guard, the Cutter Valiant crew seized 191 bales of cocaine worth about $127 million. Officials said the drugs were headed for the U.S., Local 10’s Jonathan Vigliotti reported.

The first bust happened on Oct. 10, officials said, when the cutter’s crew recovered 1,900 pounds of cocaine off the coast of Panama. Ten days later, officials said, suspected drug smugglers jettisoned 100 pounds of cocaine off the coast of Colombia.On Oct. 25, crewmembers of the Valiant detained several suspects off the coast of Panama and recovered 3,500 pounds of cocaine. Finally, on Oct. 29, the cutter detained several suspects who were found on a go-fast boat carrying 3,700 pounds of cocaine off the coast of Nicaragua, according to the Coast Guard.The Coast Guard performs similar missions throughout the year with the help of U.S. Customs and Border Protection.Coast Guard officials said the recent seizures could signal an upswing in drug distribution.”I know the crew is tremendously proud of the four seizures and have expressed a strong sense of accomplishment in knowing that they were directly responsible for keeping 5 tons of illegal narcotics — in this case cocaine valued at over $100 million — off of our streets,” said Luis Diaz of U.S. Customs and Border Protection.The Valiant brought the drugs back to South Florida Thursday to transfer to law enforcement agencies.Officials said the detained suspects have been transferred to federal agents.

Foxy Brown Takes Shots @ Lil Kim & Angel Lola Luv On New Song “Off The Muscle”


XXL Reports

Foxy Brown recently resurfaced, taking shots at longtime rival Lil’ Kim on the new track “Off the Muscle.”

On the song, which popped up on YouTube [listen below], Foxy Brown makes an obvious reference to Kim’s appearance on the ABC series Dancing with the Stars last May. She raps, “Catch me at Marcy at the mall/ But muthafuckas will never see me dancing with the stars/ Never, will I embarrass my borough/ I’m too thorough/ Dark skin bitches, we here now/ I swear now/ Ya’ll bitches wanna be me so bad/ Ya’ll studied my whole swag.”

Although Foxy Brown and Kim haven’t taken shots at each other in a while it seems the tiff might be fueled by the fact that both femcees have reported that they’re working on new albums for next year.

Here’s How You Lose $165,910,000 At A Slot Machine…

slot

Poor Bill Seebeck.  He was playing a slot machine at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel when he struck the jackpot – a $166 MILLION dollar prize!!!! Unfortunately for him the casino says the top payout of the machine was only $90,000 so they’re not paying…..at least not that.

“The slot machine he was playing on Sunday malfunctioned, in what can be best described to the layman as a ‘computer glitch,” said the casino who’s reportedly working on an “agreement” with Bill in a statement.

Hopefully he at least gets the $90,000!!!
