Man Eminem is getting soft. These day’s he’s giving people a warning to leave him alone. Granted the song was more of a jab at Mariah Carey and the lyrics are very rude. I can’t wait to hear what Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey are going to do next. Nick promised to ruin Eminem’s career if he didn’t leave his wife alone. Not exactly sure how he intends on doing that.
Check out the song and let me know what you all think. I have added the lyrics after the jump so that you won’t miss what he’s saying.
Eminem - The Warning
Only reason I dissed you in the first place is because you denied seeing me
Now I’m pissed off
Sit back and relax homey, kick back and relax, grab a six pack while I kick facts
Yeah Dre’s sick track, perfect way to get back
Wanna hear something wick wack?
I got the exact same tat that’s on Nick’s back
I’m obsessed now
Oh gee, is that supposed to be me in the video with the goatee
Wow Mariah, I didn’t expect her to go balls out
Bitch, shut the fuck up before I put all them phone calls out you made to my house when you was wild n out before Nick
When you was on my dick and give you somethin to smile about
How many times you fly to my house? Still trying to count
Better shut your lying mouth if you don’t want Nick finding out
You probably think cuz it’s been so long if i had something on you I woulda did it by now
On the contrary, Mary Poppins, I’m mixing our studio session down and sending it to mastering to make it loud
Enough dirt on you to murder you
This is what the fuck I do
Mariah, it ever occur to you that I still have pictures?
However you prefer to do and goes for you too, Nick, faggot
You think I’m scared of you?
You gonna ruin my career you better get one
Like I’ma sit and fight with you over some slut bitch cunt who made me put up with her psycho ass over 6 months and only spread her legs to let me hit once
Yeah, what you gonna say? I’m lucky? Tell the public that I was so ugly that you fucking had to be drunk to fuck me?
Second base? What the fuck you tell Nick, punk?
In the second week we was dry humping. It’s gotta count for something.
Listen, girly. Surely you don’t want me to talk about how I nutted early cos ejaculated early and bus all over your belly, and you almost started hurling and said I was gross, go get a towel you’re stomachs curling. Or maybe you do.
But if I’m embarrassing me, I’m embarrassing you and don’t you dare say it isn’t true.
As long as the song’s getting airplay I’m dissing you.
I’m a hair away from getting carried away and getting sued.
I was gonna stop at 16. This is 32. This is 34 bars. We ain’t even a third of the way through.
Damn, Slim. Mariah played you. Mariah who?
Oh did I say ”whore”, Nick? I meant a liar too.
Like I’ve been goin off on you all this time for no reason.
Girl you out ya alcholic mind. Check ya wine cellar. Look at all the amounts of wine.
Like I sit around and think about you all the time.
I just think this is funny when I pounce you on a rhyme.
But it now i’m about to draw the line.
And for you to cross it that’s a mountain that I doubt you wanna climb.
I can describe areas of your house that you wouldn’t find on an episode of Cribs
A blubba load ribs if I hear another word so don’t go opening your jibs cos every time you do it’s just another load of fibs
I ain’t saying this shit again, ho. You know what it is.
It’s a warning shot for before I blow up ya whole spot
Call my bluff and I’ll release every fucking thing I got
Including the voicemails right before you flipped your top
When me and Luis were tryin’ to stick two CD’s in the same spot
(Slim Shady I love you)
I love you too
Let me whisper sweet nothings into your ear, boo. Now what you say?
Guess what I’ll do?
I’ll refresh your memory when you said ”I want you”
Now should I keep going or should we call truce?
(You think you’re cute, right? Hahaha)
You bet your sweet ass I do
(I’m Mary Poppins, b)
And I’m Superman, mmm
(Mary P. Slim Shady)
Comin’ at you
So if you’ll still be my (babygirl)
Then I’ll still be your (Superhero, Wilma M.)
Yeah, I’m right here
(You like this)
Nope. Not anymore, Dear.
It cuts like a (knife) when I tell ya get a (life)
But I’m movin on with mine
Nick, is that your (wife)
Well tell her to shut her mouth then I’ll leave her alone
If she don’t (sing this script?) then I’ma just keep goin
(I se Mary Ann. Mary Ann’s saying ”cut the tape, cut the tape”. Knife!)

According to the Houston Chronicle, no one was seriously wounded in the incident, which occurred before 9 p.m.
TSU spokesperson Eva Pickens told the paper that an unmarked car pulled up to the campus' parking lot and began to shoot wildly into the crowd, striking some of the partygoers including a male TSU student and a 60-year-old man.
The community-sponsored event gave away school supplies for children, offered train and pony rides, enforced voter registration and provided immunizations and HIV testing.
"The event was something that was very meaningful, very positive" Trae told MTV News. "You have a lot of people who could never pull this off. This was the best event of the year, then we go through what we went through at night when the event is over. No positive light was shed that a couple thousand kids got immunization shots. Families got free backpacks for their children. Nobody sees the positive stuff."
Rappers Bun B and Rick Ross were both at the event — which was also meant to honor Trae's work with at-risk youth in Houston — and Ross performed.
TSU officials said local police are investigating the shooting and believe the event may have been spurred by an ongoing rivalry between two of the city's local gangs from Fresno and Missouri City, a suburb southwest of Houston, CNN reported.

I Wont Complain - Rev. Paul Jones

Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith had sex on the way to this year's Oscars.
The actress - who raises three children with the 'Men in Black' star - admits the pair got carried away while they were being driven to the prestigious ceremony in Hollywood.
She told Shape magazine: "When you have three kids, you've got to take your opportunities when they come. In a limo, on the way to the Academy Awards this year, Will started looking at me in this way that drives me wild. We started kissing passionately, and the next thing I knew, well, let's just say we missed the red carpet and I ended up with almost no make-up on."
This is not the first time Jada has opened up about her adventurous love life with her hunky husband.
She recently claimed having sex at a friend's house keeps relationships alive as does getting intimate in cars or workplaces.
She said: "Be sneaky - your girlfriend's house at a party. The bathroom. A bedroom.
"Think of places outside that are comfortable to have sex.
"Does he have access to his office? Have a fantasy date. Be his secretary! Pull over on the side of the road... Just switch it up.
"Anything like that can keep it going. Anything it takes to keep the flame alive."

TABLES TURN ON KARRINE STEFFANS: New DVD documentary featuring singer Norwood alleges fake tears on Oprah and more.
*Karrine "Superhead" Steffans is getting a taste of her own medicine with the release of "Kiss and Tail," a DVD documentary featuring singer Norwood Young that reveals even more secrets about the former music video vixen than she has already told.
In the video, Young claims that Steffans admitted faking her tears during an appearance on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" to promote her 2006 best-seller, "Confessions of a Video Vixen."
Per the New York Daily News, Young also claims in the film that Steffans secretly recorded men during sex, and threatened her boyfriend Darius McCrary with a knife.
McCrary himself appears in the documentary. Even though Steffans says he's now her husband, he calls her a "scorpion" and alleges she "socks" her 11-year-old son.
Steffans declined to comment, except to say she's talking with her lawyers.

Being from "Tha Boot" all I used to rock was Reebok Classics and G-Nikes or as the rest of the country would say Air Force Ones. So now that I'm not going to be rockin heels as much this upcoming year and for the rest of the summer, I need to figure out what kind of shoe I'm going to rock. I'm feelin these...So let me know what u think. YAH DIG
As part of the Nightmare Pack they present two colorway of the high top sneaker, both coming with patent leather black uppers, one featuring fading green, the other one fading pink accents on the straps. Overall a pretty strong pack and probably the most interesting Reebok Ex-O-Fit Hi Strap’s we have seen in a while.

Michael Jackson revolutionized music with his dance moves, thrilled the world with his music videos, and captivated everyone with his eccentricities. He had the unique ability to blend various genres in one musical gumbo, without losing his own identity. Over the years, hip-hoppers have shown gratitude to the Gloved One through the art of sampling.
As the world marks the King of Pop's memorial service, here are 10 hip-hop classics that sampled Michael Jackson.
Michael Jackson thrilled fans with his music videos, revolutionized pop music with his dance moves, and captivated everyone with his eccentricities. He had the unique ability to marry rock, pop, R & B, and hip-hop music, without losing his musical identity. Over the years, hip-hop has often paid tribute to the King of Pop through the art of sampling. Here are 10 hip-hop classics that sampled Michael Jackson.
"Letter to My Unborn," one of the 879 posthumous 2Pac singles, is taken from his 2001 album Until the End of Time. It sampled Michael Jackson's 1989 smash "Liberian Girl," off of Bad. Another 2Pac song, "The Thug in Me," and MC Lyte's "Keep on Keeping On" also sampled "Liberian Girl." At the beginning of the original version of "Thug in Me," Pac tells his producer: "I like that beat that MC Lyte got. Johnny J, flip that sh*t. Let's do that sh*t like over."
The original version of Trae's "Swang" sampled MJ's "Lady in My Life". However, Trae's label was unable to clear the rights for the sample. As a result, Trae was forced to re-record the song over a different beat. Still, the OG version remains one of the best hip-hop songs to ever sample MJ.
"It's All About the Benjamins," which features Lil Kim, The LOX & Notorious B.I.G., is probably Puffy's biggest hit ever. It climbed all the way to No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 and its won a "Viewer's Choice" award at the 1998 MTV Video Music Awards for the music video. The song's DNA is comprised of Love Unlimited's "I Did It For Love" and Jackson 5's "It's Great to Be Here."
Q-Tip sampled Jackson 5 on "Fight/Love" and "Move/Renaissance Rap," both taken from his critically acclaimed Renaissance LP. The latter, produced by J Dilla, borrows elements of J5's "Dancing Machine." The Rik Cordero-directed video also alludes to Jackson's "You Rock My World" video.
6. J Dilla - "Time (The Donut of the Heart)"
"All I Do Is Think of You" is a favorite among Jackson 5 fans. The ballad, which appears on Jackson 5's Moving Violation, is also one of the group's most sampled tunes. A slightly faster, albeit equally melancholic, version of the song forms the backbone of Dilla's "Time - Donut of the Heart," off his critically-acclaimed 2006 album, Donuts. The Roots later used the same track as for the album closer, "Can't Stop This", on 2007's Game Theory.
"You Ain't A Killer" is a standout cut from Pun's 1996 LP, Capital Punishment. The piano loops harvested from the first six seconds of "With a Child's Heart" ends up serving as the backdrop of Pun's 4-minute gem. The cinematic beat compliments Pun's gritty flow and the effect is as timeless as hip-hop itself. Khrysis also sampled "With a Child's Heart" for Little Brother's brilliant "Watch Me," from The Minstrel Show.
Naughty By Nature struck gold with their 1991 hit single "O.P.P.," which sampled the Jackson 5 hit. The irrepresibly catchy "O.P.P." helped propel Naughty By Nature's self-titled debut to platinum status. It remains one of the biggest crossover hits hip-hop has ever witnessed.
This 1996 masterwork offered an early indication of Ghost's penchant for soulful samples. It samples Jackson 5's "Maybe Tomorrow," with young Michael on lead vocals. Ghost tapped songstress Mary J. Blige and an eloquent Popa Wu to add even more soul power to an already fierce RZA beat. Ghostface supposedly wrote the song as a tribute to his mother.
When you hear "Breakadawn," the 1993 single from De La Soul's Buhloone Mindstate, the first thing that jumps out at you is the riveting sample. Prince Paul incorporates a mix of live instrumentation and elements from Jackson's "I Can't Help It," taken from Off the Wall.
What do Michael Jackson's "Human Nature" and Nas' "It Ain't Hard to Tell" have in common? For starters, they're both cold classics. Illmatic is often heralded as one of the best hip-hop albums ever. This Large Professor-laced gem from Nas' opus owes its success to the late King of Pop.

SHEEEEIIIIIIIIT, you know MY answer to this question...OF COURSE bitches... DUDE is mad talented, but of course there are other rappers that are talented as well. I personally dont think that the US is ready for a rapper of Wale's caliber. But that's JUST MY OPINION...You guys have to check him out for yourselves.
Is Wale the greatest new rapper since Shawn Carter? We'll know in September. That's when Wale's eagerly awaited debut LP, Attention Deficit, is scheduled to arrive. The album includes his collaboration with Lady GaGa, "Chillin', and a recently leaked summer jawn titled "Pretty Girls."
I understand why everyone is high on Wale right now. He's arguably the No.1 draft pick of 2009. However, it's laughable to crown as him "the greatest rapper since Jay-Z." Is the print industry hurting so bad that GQ needs to pull a stunt to keep circulation rolling? In fact, Lupe Fiasco had a much better track record as a rookie MC. Lupe's deadly combo of lyrical competence and commercial viability made him an instant threat. You could say the same for Game and his first outing.
Though Wale hasn't had a chance to fully prove his mettle, he's shown flashes of brilliance on his mixtapes and guest verses. 2008's A Mixtape About Nothing was more compelling than most people's albums, and he almost stole the show from veteran Black Thought on "Rising Up." Still, I'm not drunk enough on the Wale buzz to crown him the "next great" anything. I'm withholding my judgment until we see how much of his mixtape skills and guest features translate to an album worth shelling out 15 bucks in these hard times for.
As for GQ's claim, well, GQ should stick to fashion.
I honestly would ROCK the shit outta this jacket...I happened to like the movie and will be the first in line to see New Moon...If you havent checked out Twilight, check it out. Read the books too yah dig.
The universe has Twilight fever.
I have yet to see the movie - but I hope to SOON. (Or at least own the book for plane reading…did I mention I’m going to Mexico in six days???)
But anyway, I am digressing (yet again).
You Twilight fans probably remember a certain jacket featured in this hit movie.
Bella wears a cozy drawstring hooded jacket by BB Dakota, and now, at my very favorite store on the “interweb”, we can too. ChickDowntown.com HAS the Bella jacket!
I had actually seen this jacket before, on eBay. There, it is highly coveted, and so hard to come by that sellers are racking in serious dough to shell out the few they had available. But now, their fun is up…you can buy it for under $65!
Aside from the cinema-appeal, the jacket is totally cute. It has fleece lining, ribbed cuffs, distressed pockets, and everything you need to be sporty chic - and score Robert Pattinson, it seems.
BET Bosses under fire for Lil Wayne Performance
The organisers of the BET Awards have come under fire for letting LIL WAYNE perform his controversial EVERY GIRL tune at Sunday’s (28Jun09) ceremony – backed by a troupe of teenage dancers.
Celebrated Columbia University scholar Dr. Janet Taylor has taken aim at BET CEO Debra Lee for allowing the hip-hop star’s performance at Los Angeles’ Shrine Auditorium to go uncensored.
The mother of four watched the awards show with her daughters and was left horrified when Lil Wayne launched into his "degrading" sex hit during an onstage collaboration with Drake.
The track begins with, "I like a long haired thick red bone/Open up her legs then filet Mignon that p**sy/Ima get in and on that p**sy/If she let me in Ima own that p**sy."
Dr. Taylor tells MomLogic.com, "I enjoy rap with the exception of rappers who use lyrics to degrade, defame or threaten others… I don’t have a problem with Lil Wayne ; he is creative and his writing is brilliant at times. However, his song Every Girl is offensive and disturbing.
"Perhaps they are what our kids are used to. I have teenagers, girls no less, who have heard the song and like it. My problem was the teens who were proudly on stage, shaking their groove thang to this misogynistic, disrespectful song. It was ridiculous.
"Debra Lee, who is also the mother of two children, should be asking herself who approved this and how these young girls were allowed to be a part of this act."
Dr. Taylor adds, "It is time for perspective here. In the minutes that were wasted on stage during this song, almost four women were forcibly raped in the United States. The age group 13-17, that these young dancers belong, include the highest victims of forcible rape, at 32 per cent.
"Why are we, as women and mothers, passively allowing our young girls to be utilised as sexual entertainment ? We need to wake up and understand the importance of what we expose our children and teens to."
If you've never heard of dude or you have heard of him and not listened to his stuff. Check him out. Real Talk.
Jonathan Hay had an exclusive sit down with one of Hip-Hop’s rising stars Carlito Rossi. In case you don’t know who Carlito Rossi is yet he’s a up and coming New Jersey rapper who has worked with D12, Chamillionaire, Eminem and more. some of his tracks include Hater In The Club and Ain’t No Tellin. Go ahead and check him out!
What’s new in the world of Carlito Rossi?
Waddup, waddup you know me grinding as usual, trying to stay focused and make power moves.
Jumping right into it… tell us about your project coming out with Shady Records capo Cashis?
Well, me and Cashis are working on a project called The Usual Suspects Vol.1. We already released the first single called “Ain’t No Tellin” which is produced by my dude Omega. We recently released the second single from the project called “What Up” which features Chamillionaire and is produced by Shady’s own Rikanatti. The record is getting a great response. So the project is definitely moving along.

As Mariners slugger Ken Griffey Jr.(notes) strolled to the plate for his first at-bat Tuesday night, the sound system at Safeco Field grooved to Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean."
Griffey's apparent tribute to the King of Pop, who was memorialized Tuesday, extended beyond the sonic. Close inspection of Griff Jr.'s grip on the bat showed a bare left hand and a white batting glove worn on his right.
Griffey usually wears dark blue gloves on both hands.
Before Tuesday night's game at Safeco Field, Ken Griffey Jr. said he was going to honor Michael Jackson by wearing one white batting glove in his first at-bat, and I thought he was kidding.
"Man, you're gullible," Griffey said.
Tricky. Griffey's tribute turned out to be earnest and effective. He drew a walk but — sorry — he didn't moonwalk to first base (VIDEO). If he had, Griffey would have been the first big leaguer since Jimmy Piersall in 1963 to go backward 'round the bases.
In his subsequent at-bats, Griffey reverted to his usual two-gloved stance. He finished 1-for-2. No one wants to be defeated, but Griffey's M's were, 12-4, by the Orioles.
Griffey struck an accurate pose — MJ also wore his sequined glove on the right hand while going au naturel on the left.
Griffey was barely in his teens when Jackson, at his zenith of popularity, visited the White House in 1984.
