Maybe I missed it, but I don’t believe I’ve seen anything mentioned about Snoop’s book dropping last week. I find that kind of odd, since any idiot can see this thing is destined for the Times Best Seller list.

Shout out to the 20 people who emailed me this in the last hour or so. My apologies for not having it up earlier, I was catching up on some sleep, something I haven’t had a chance to do much lately. From what I can see this bad boy leaked a few hours ago, which in the online hip hop mp3 exclusiveness game is equal to an eternity. Sleep = the cousin of blog wackness.

“That’s my life, that’s my love, that’s my thing right there. That’s my little son and I love him to death.” – Baby

The Wayne/Baby kiss picture. I first saw it late last night when alot of you kids were tucked into bed, dreaming about a Nas leak or a Shareefa nipple slip or whatever other sick fantasies occupy your twisted little minds during the wee hours. I drafted a post about it and everything, but at the last minute I backed out. I knew that the odds that this was the work of some Photoshop geek were pretty high, plus man on man make out shots don’t exactly fit into the editorial scope of this site.

Fat Joe: I Never Stole From Pun

Thursday, October 26th, 2006

HHNLive has a new Fat Joe interview up. In it he addresses his and Remy’s album flops, his non-relationship with Cuban Link, and most importantly, the allegations that he left Pun’s family high and dry after his untimely demise in 2000:

I ain’t never stole from none of my artists. If anything, they owe me money. You know what I’m sayin’? I put niggas on. I take niggas from not havin’ nothin’ to bein’ rich millionaires. Niggas got a million cars and all that. How could I steal from them? Wit’ his family, you know, the niggas was rich before he died. Then he died and they told me, "Yo, we spent that money unwisely.." Then I went and got them way more paper, no disrespect to you, than you’ll ever see in your life. I got ‘em rich money. Not shorts, I got these niggas rich. Alright, your man is dead, cool and everything, aight, let’s go get you some real money. So we did "Endangered Species". All the money I was supposed to make, all of the money he was supposed to make, we took that whole budget and gave it to his wife and his kids and that was like, crazy dough, my nigga. Real shit. So I gave them all the money from that shit, anything that was comin’ in from publishing, everything was goin’ to his wife and kids.

He also talks about how Weezy is the best rapper doing it right now, North or South, and how nobody in the streets is feeling G-Unit anymore.
