See rappers, that’s why it’s good to be yourself because the real people you’re portraying just might feel a certain way about it and literally reach out and touch you.
Hip-Hop News 24/7, Jacki-O revealed.
“I got a call from her son in regards to me using her name for the mixtape but it was done in all respect though. He had a lot of respect about it but he just had a concern of the way I was portraying his mom. We spoke about it and he really wanted me to let everyone know that his mom was a loving mother despite the way the media has portrayed her and the way the streets thought of her but she was still a loving mother.
But what we know about her is she wasn’t to be played with. She was that chick that if you didn’t have her bricks or her money she coming for you so I named my mixtape Griselda Blanco and people that know about it love it.”

Actress and United Nations Goodwill Ambassador Angelina Jolie apparently hates Barack Obama.
On top of this, according to an Us Weekly article, she and partner Brad Pitt have a lot of fights over their differing views of the President.
Such seems surprising not just due to her high-profile activism, but also that Us Weekly, as one of the Obamas’ biggest fans, would report it.
Consider that in March 2008, UW owner Jenn Wenner wrote such a gooey endorsement of candidate Obama in his other magazine Rolling Stone that Politico’s Mike Allen suggested he and Barack should “Get a room!”
Which makes this piece all the more amazing (h/t Parcbench via Leon Todd):
Barack Obama does not have Angelina Jolie’s seal of approval.
“She hates him,” a source close to the U.N. goodwill ambassador, 34, tells the new issue of Us Weekly (on newsstands now).
“She’s into education and rehabilitation and thinks Obama is all about welfare and handouts. She thinks Obama is really a socialist in disguise,” adds the source.
NewsBusters readers are certainly aware that father Jon Voight is quite conservative, and discussed this with Matt Sheffield and me at last year’s Republican National Convention. But I digress:
“Angie isn’t Republican, but she thinks Obama is all smoke and mirrors,” the source says.
And those political views are putting her at odds with Brad Pitt, 45, who is a big fan of the president and even went solo to the 2008 election party in Chicago.
“They get in nasty arguments all the time about it,” says the source.
I hope these arguments don’t resemble the way they fought in “Mr. and Mrs. Smith.”
Former United Parcel Service driver Steven Mojica is suing the delivery company after he claims he was fired for not delivering a suspicious package that turned out to be marijuana, according to a Detroit Newsstory.
Mojica claims that a supervisor told him “he should have delivered the package, even if it contained illicit drugs.”
Mojica, 41, had a next-day package from Cali on July 29 to deliver in Pontiac, Mich. He held on to the four-pound package, which his supervisors considered theft and reported it to the DEA for suspected drug dealing, and fired him, according to his attorney, Mark Porter.
“It’s nice to know UPS can guarantee delivery to drug dealers and fire employees that refuse to deliver their drugs,” Porter told the Detroit News.
A UPS driver for 17 years, Mojica was worried he was in harm’s way so he returned the package to his truck, according to the suit.
After being told by a supervisor to deliver it, even if it was illegal drugs, Mojica opened it and found what he thought was marijuana.
UPS had no comment to the Detroit News on the firing or lawsuit, but said that drivers can contact their local operations office if they are suspicious of the contents of packages they’re delivering.
