For some reason all the rapper are doing like its 1984 again. I dont know. Jay-Z looks like a fool in his. I havent seen them look good on any of them. And whow the hell let Lil Wayne talk to to Katie Couric???? Please people! we finally have something to be proud to be African Americans about and then you see this non sense. he just set us back 20yrs.

I see nothing wrong with Lil

I see nothing wrong with Lil Wayne here; he's representin as the rapper he is. No different from when we see rock stars in full makeup or goth gear to do an interview. do we really expect him to take out the fronts or cover the tats?? kudos to Katie for seriously interviewing him just as she would any other person. Just from the preview, she appeared objective and professional as a journalist. I hate it when people feel the need to change (or try to put on their version of what being "down" is) in order to communicate with rappers. We shall see when the full interview comes out though. I didn't know about the name change was b/c of his dad's relationship....deep wounds.

[quote comment="406818"]I see Lil' Wayne in a different light now. HE'S THE FUCK!N' ANTI-CHRIST! He was so articulate, he scared me. He looked evil. It was like he was a different person. I did laugh out loud when he said, "I'm a gangster, and gangsters don't ask any questions." In other words, you wouldn't know what to ask Bush about Katrina.[/quote] OMG I was thiking the same thing!!!! I was truly creeped out!

Katie looked scared as heck.

Katie looked scared as heck. Flash back of slave days when he said 'Ms. Katie' lol Dang never thought he was attractive before, because those tatoos take away from his cuteness, but he's handsome and smart.
Real's Eyeliner's picture

this was interesting. I can't

this was interesting. I can't wait to see it in its entirety....you really can't expect Weezy to be anyone but who he is. I appreciate him more for remaining true to who he (and his image) is, rather than get on there frontin'. He's actually educated and insightful. I would consider him a thinker, somewhat of an intellectual, despite his substance abuse....everyone has a vice...my favorite part is when he tells Katie "he's a gangsta". Oh okay! a GREAT follow-up question for her would have been "define your gangsta for the world Weezy. What exactly do you mean when you say gangsta". or at least that's what I would have said...at any rate many artists including Weezy have the power to lead a movement, resistance of any kind...but that's when his objective would turn from profit to humanitarianism, which is probably not why he started rapping in the first place...I definitely think its possible and believe that a movement of young folx will have to involve our modern day 'icons', but its going to take some soul-searching on their parts......in the meantime let this man be a gangsta! lol. 2Pac was a gangsta....a THUG to be exact....

I think he handled himself

I think he handled himself rather well. Some people kill me trying to act like they're so much better than other people. I think he will go on to do more than music. He's not a stupid man and I wish him all the best. lol @ him calling her Miss Katie. Blacks folks know how to put handles on names, cuz if we didn't our momma's would have slapped the black off of our asses~

They cleaned his ass up but

They cleaned his ass up but good for Katie Couric and must have been in hella coaching sessions to clean up his usual "lean" diction, but damn if he still didn't go and say something stupid. Some folks just need to be heard through their records...and that's it. He clearly doesn't have any understanding of real power if he thinks claiming "gangsta" is upping his street cred. Niccas just got reeducated on what real power is. If Barack Obama wanted to, he'd have Wayne's whole life shut down in ten minutes. Luckily for him, I think our Prez has other things to do.

I totally understand about the whole Wayne thing. And lastly, why does his mouth look like that? Why is he okay with that? Thank yall for coming out, God Bless, good nite...

Why is Katie Couric

Why is Katie Couric interviewing Lil Wayne? Um...Lil Wanye had the biggest selling album in the US in 2008. According to Nielsen SoundScan "The Carter III" handily beat out Coldplay for the top spot. And Katie doesnt look scared to me, and Weezy F Baby is just being his naturally insane self. We pop bottles, ya heard! Ha, Ha Some of U folks need to ease up, its not like Weezy is running for President or something. He did say he was just a Rapper, so it is what it is. Im just saying...

However thanks for the laughs guys and I will "see" you all later tonight! LATERZ[/quote] And because we can't F'n post. But I'm not gonna blatantly disrespect Natasha. I think that's f'd up. Hell I wouldn't even disrespect SR and I don't like nothing she talks about. You don't come up in people house talkin ish about them. That ain't cool. Aight I'm out. Lata my ladies.[/quote] I really did it to entertain the ladie since the site isn'y do it these days. I been saw the pic of her and always felt that way about her. I just kept it to myself and just bust it up with the fam. The news on thissite has gone down tremendously and that left us well me up to entertaining myself. The other I posted completely out of anger but is was exactly how I felt as the words were being formed. I don't apologize for the other day she really deserved it. But I could have gone without today's post. It was pure entertainment livend(sp) up the post for a few. Many people actually enjoyed it. So with that being said.....ladies you can catch me on my wall. I'll consult with my IT friends about getting my own site up and running since I have now caputured an audience. Peace!![/quote] I think that this was a very petty and childish thing to do. So, just because the site has had some problems as of late, which Natasha clearly explained and apologized for recently, you are just going to go off on her like that because you're not getting what you want when you want it....How old are you exactly??? There is such a thing as dont bite the hand that feeds you, and if it wasn't for YBF you wouldn't have been able to meet and form the Peen group, make real friends and have somewhere to go to take your mind and time of your job...How about just being thankful for that and kick n push to the rest of the nonsense?...I remember at one time the regulars that were on here would trounce anyone new who tried to come on here and attack Tash because they recognized and appreciated the bigger picture, which is that this was a site for like-minded folks to convene, share and laugh, something mind you that Natasha never comaplined about or tried to stop despite all the complaints and whining from the randoms...

Thank God for

Thank God for individualism...so I don't have to be like this idiot! I'm wondering how he was able to sit there w/ a straight face looking @ all them damn tattoos. And by the way...real gangstas don't promote their wrong doing...they don't want credit for it and they don't do interviews!!!!!!!!! i.e. John Gotti or any other Mafia gangsta.

I'm sorry but Lil Wayne

I'm sorry but Lil Wayne actually surprised me in this interview. I think he spoke very eloquently. I was expecting to not understand a WORD of what he said but was pleasantly surprised by his tone, show of emotion (re:Katrina) and his manners. He seems like a decent fellow. It goes to show that art isn't always life, although they proclaim it to be. I just wish these sensible rappers would act like they have some sense instead of making our kids believe gang bangin', hoes, and money are the most important things in life.

Something creepy about the

Something creepy about the way he talks in this interview! Anywho, I'm sooooooooo glad he took out that eye brow ring he had been rockin the last few months and he doesn't seem to be "leaning" which is great! Maybe he's getting his life in order after having his son and realizing he has even more to live for. I think he was getting teary eyed when she brought up Hurricane Katrina. I don't blame him, I get sad when I think of all the devestation that Ike brought to TX. Blessings, LovelyN_Houston
