I don’t blame the hood rat who dressed her son with his pants sagging and his drawers exposed, I blame hip hop and its poisonous influence on our culture. This photo of a toddler dressed in urban gear and holding a stack of cash big enough to choke a horse is making the rounds on the Internet. Influential rappers like Jay Z and Lil Wayne encourage our young men to continue dressing like slobs. Is it any wonder that the white community considers us to be a race of Thugs?

Rappers Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, Birdman, and others attended the 2013 BMI R&B/Hip-Hop Awards at Hammerstein Ballroom on Thursday, August 22 in New York City. According to celebrity blogsite TMZ, a fan of either Lil Wayne, T.I. or 2 Chainz was invited on board one of the tour buses by an entourage member during a tour stop in Oklahoma City earlier this week. The female fan says trouble started when she arrived at the bus with a female friend. The entourage member thrust his arm down her shirt and began feeling her breast. She told police she slapped his hand and he punched her in the face so hard she flew out the door and landed on her back with blood spurting from her mouth. The fan says her jaw was broken in two places. She required surgery and her jaw was wired shut. She says she will be sipping her dinner through a straw for 6 weeks.

Rapper 2 Chainz was arrested for obstructing a police officer in Oklahoma City. The Atlanta rapper was taken into custody early Thursday morning after a nine-hour standoff with police. 2 Chainz had just performed in concert with rappers T.I. and Lil Wayne hours earlier.
UK’s Daily Mail reports that the rapper’s tour bus was pulled over when officers observed a broken tail light. After pulling the bus over, police detected the pungent aroma of marijuana in the air and attempted to board the bus, but the occupants locked the bus and prevented the police from boarding.
When the bus occupants refused to exit the bus, the vehicle was towed — occupants and all — to a nearby police training facility.
Rappers Lil’ Wayne and T.I. are currently on a 41-city “America’s Most Wanted” tour. Last night’s tour stop was at the Cruzan Amphitheater in West Palm Beach Florida. The concert after party was held at Prestige Sundays at Bamboo on South Beach, where T.I. and Lil Wayne celebrated Tameka “Tiny” Harris‘s birthday.
It looks like our prayers have been answered: rapper Lil Wayne, 30, plans to retire after he releases his final solo album, Carter V, reports Rap-Up.com.
“I want to retire after the Carter V, which I hope would be my last album,” he said during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Tuesday.
Weezy said he plans to spend “quality time” with his 4 kids including Reginae, his 14-year-old daughter with former wife and reality TV personality Toya Wright.
Wayne has plans to release other albums prior to the release of Carter V including Like Father, Like Son 2 with Birdman.
His well-publicized health problems also play a part in Lil Wayne’s retirement.
He said Miami heat star LeBron James reached out to him during his latest hospitalization for recurrent seizures. But he doesn’t plan on attending any Miami Heat games if the NBA Finals returns to Miami where he owns a home.
“They did tell me that I’m allowed back whenever I want, but I don’t think they want me there, so I won’t make it hard on either of us,” he said.
Weezy also addressed his comments about sleeping with Chris Bosh’s wife (“I was too turnt up that night”) and his love for skateboarding.

I admit I didn’t know who Skylar Diggins was until rapper Lil Wayne started lusting after her on his Twitter page last year.
Instead of being totally grossed out by a gremlin lusting after her, Diggins was actually flattered by the attention.
Anyway, I had no idea how loyal (and rude) Diggins’ fans were (I didn’t even know she had fans). One irate fan was so incensed by yesterday’s post on Skylar bragging about her gift from Jay Z that she emailed me a nasty letter.
The letter tickled me because the fan assumes that I give a rat’s a** that Diggins has a new Mercedes Benz. My 2004 Jetta may not be sitting on dubs, but it’s paid for.
Read the email after the break.
