LiL Wayne “Kanye Killed Me”

November 30, 2007

With Lil Wayne gracing their December/January cover, Complex magazine has released an uncut version of the interview on their website. In it, Wayne addresses everything from the Hot Boys reunion to smoking blunts with Oscar De la Hoya, Tom from MySpace and Bill Gates. When asked about the fact that fans have been suggesting that Kanye’s verse bested Wayne’s on his track “Barry Bonds,” Weezy had this to say:

“I think he did too, meaning his verse was better. Yeah but I’m going to get him. ‘Ye killed me on that song. I was tight because I was like it could be way hotter than this. So when I heard his verse I was like “oh, we doing this again.” I done it twice, they got two different versions. I done one and I ain’t hear his verse and I done the other one after I heard his verse and even when I finished I said why don’t you let him be the man of song. Meaning that it was needed and what I’ve done nobody else can do it.”

Wayne also addresses rumors about him ghostwriting for his collaborators:

Surgeon Who Performed on Kanye’s Mom Walks Of Larry King Live

November 21, 2007

What was slated to be the physician, Dr. Jan Adams, telling his side of the story to Larry King on the CNN program, turned into Adams taking off his microphone live on the air and declining to comment. The surprising move was, according to Adams, in response to a last minute plea by the West family not to speak out about the procedure. Adams said that he was respecting the family’s wishes by not speaking out on the matter.
“I have a tremendous amount of love and respect for the West family and they have asked me not to go on,” he said. “And I’ve said from the very beginning, I don’t have a side in this. They are my side and so I’m going to respect their wishes.”
When King asked if the cosmetic surgeon would field questions at a later date concerning the matter, he responded by saying, “When they’re comfortable, then I’ll be comfortable. If they’re never comfortable, then I’ll never be comfortable. They are what’s important to me. I said that from the start and that’s what I’ll continue to honor.”
The show aired on the same day that the funeral for West was held in Spencer, Oklahoma. The funeral was attended by an emotional Kanye as well as a host of mourners including Jay-Z, Beyonce and John Legend. Both Common and Anita Baker performed at West’s funeral as well, according to Entertainment Tonight.

Dame Dash Feels Big Brother Was A Sneak Dis- “I might have choked Kanye out for that”

November 6, 2007

“It sounds like a sneak dis record to me. You gotta understand certain things about Kanye; he doesn’t go at things like the average person does,” Dash tells BET.com. “I feel like if he has something to say, he has to pose it in that way or he can’t communicate it at all. And that was the only way he could express why he doesn’t understand why he’s treated that way.”

“It’s not like he could be gangsta about it and say,’Yo, this n***a’s playing me,’…I didn’t think it was a very complimentary record. N***as saying n***a on their d**ks and that was some real disrespectful stuff. I might have choked Kanye out for that.”

50 Cent: “I Beat Kanye”

November 6, 2007

“No, I’m not retiring,” Fitty told me, in the wake of his Kanye West feud. You will recall he pledged to bow out if his album “Curtis” didn’t outsell West’s “Graduation,” which opened nationally at No. 1.

“[My album] was No. 1 internationally the week it came out,” he said at Philippe. “It was the No. 1 European album!”

Indeed, while West trumped Fitty stateside, “Curtis” scored both the top album and single on the Billboard European Hot 100.

Says Fiddy: “It’s all about the numbers at the end of the day”.
