Video: Mikkey Halsted Interview w/ Upside of Down News (Pts. 2 & 3)

Pt. 3

Part 2 is after the jump, but I was really interested to hear pt. 3 in which Mikkey speaks on the indirect mention he got on Kanye’s “Last Call” on the College Dropout album. Even though Yeezy doesn’t even technically rap on it, that’s easily one of my favorite tracks from him ever, and I never realized it was Mikkey who he was referring to.

  5. Darth Cipher Says:

    to be perfectly honest, I think the pig shot him by accident, because I can’t believe that even the most ruthless pig would shoot an unarmed dude in cold blood with that many witnesses around. that said, i’m still calling it a murder for a number of reasons I won’t get into.
    ^^^

    i can’t agree with you on that, he had no reason to pull his gun out on the guy, he was on the floor, with 3 cops around him, unarmed and being dragged… and the cop pulls his gun out and shoots him, point blank

    nah, I agree he had no reason to pull his gun, which is one of the reasons I’m calling it a murder. I just don’t think he meant neccessarily meant to pull the trigger. he can’t be that big of a moron. or maybe he can. either way, I wanna see a pig roast in Oakland.

    Maybe, but still, cops are only supposed to pull out the gun if the person is showing signs of direct danger towards a cop and others, or if they’re resisting arrest ie. running away, fighting back etc. So i’m thinking this dudes a moron cause even his partner looked at him like (wtf did you just do?!)

    *shootings an innocent mans it up*

  20. moresickaMC Says:

    Voletta Wallace, the mother of late rapper Notorious B.I.G., would rather have a conversation with Lil Kim rather than go back and forth with her.

    As reported earlier, Lil Kim expressed disappointment in Ms. Wallace and Biggie’s wife Faith Evans for not involving her in the production of the late rapper’s forthcoming biopic Notorious and demeaning her character in the film.

    Kim threatened to dish out dirt on Biggie’s mom and Evans but Ms. Wallace says she would rather talk things out and get more details about Kim’s relationship with her son.

    Ms. Wallace claims that she learnt things she never knew about Biggie during the filming of Notorious and feels that Kim could fill in some holes.

    “I saw a side of my son that I heard of but I haven’t accepted. I’m angered by certain things, disappointed and shocked,” Ms. Wallace explained. ” I would love to speak to Lil’ Kim, because I need to ask more about this love relationship because I really didn’t like the way he treated her and I’m praying that that’s not it. Only she can answer th ose questions. She’s a sweet girl and I didn’t think she deserved to be treated the way he treated her, if that’s the case.”

    Notorious is slated to open in theatres on January 16th with Brooklyn rapper Gravy playing Biggie.

  28. TheCo!!inB Says:

    the cop already resigned from the police dept. either way, accident or not I hope all negative things in life happen to him, I hope he has a daughter that catches AIDS from a black dude and dies slow…..and he can’t afford burial costs. and I mean that from the heart.

  29. BKScribe Says:

    “Where rocket-propelled grenades are fired around you on a daily … a guy bragging on TV talking about how gangster he is?” K’Naan says. “For us, it’s more a source of entertainment. It’s more like a comedy or something we watch. Say, ‘Oh wow, that’s kind of cute of American gangsters.’

    ^^
    Yea, but itd be real wack of Kim to start shitting on B.I.G. now. She played it like she was his actual wife or something (and not just a jump off) for years and used to that shit to build her ever shallowing legacy. He’s the reason she’s not sucking random niggas off in BK for hair money right now.

    Not saying the shit BIG did to her was cool, but if it was that bad she shoulda been put it out there, instead of when she gets salty for being portrayed like a tramp in the movie.
