Yeah, I know I'm late to the party on the Suge Knight shooting, but I had to get a new deadbolt installed on the basement door and borrow a couple Rottweilers before I laid into Suge's tired a$$, y'all - it's the only sensible thing to do since that brother's been a trouble magnet since grade school. He'd have done well to take Usher's advice and call it a night once the VIP room at the Shore Club Hotel 'done got way too crowded'. Y'all know by now that some ruckus jumped off up in VIP and someone busted a cap in Suge's leg during Kanye West's VMA party in Miami. Two things struck me about this right away - 1) Kanye knows how to throw a party, jack and 2) Chickens really do come home to roost...
In case y'all aren't hip to Suge's tomfoolery, he's the homeboy in red in the lead glossy. Suge can best be described as a trouble magnet who graduated top of a class that includes Bobby Brown, James Brown, Courtney Love, Robert Downey, Jr., Mike Tyson and George Bush. Suge's best known as the original gangster who ran Death Row records with an iron fist, had his boys dangle Vanilla Ice over a hotel balcony to get him to sign over royalties to 'Ice Ice Baby' (or so the rumor goes) and being in the driver's seat the night Tupac got his in Las Vegas. Like I said, y'all - trouble magnet. So the fact that he's still on a couple hit lists isn't surprising. I'm just a little disappointed that it caused a bit of negative blowback on Kanye since his new CD Late Registration dropped today. Hit that link, y'all for a tight 2 Guys review.
All that gangster ruckus also did our boy Donkey (Eddie Murphy) a solid as it redirected attention away from his dirty during the VMAs on the other side of Miami. It seems our recently single boy was dippin' and dodgin' with none other than the comeback kid Mariah Carey. According to the Daily News Front Page, Donkey and Mimi dipped over to the Hotel Setai at 3:30 in the morning. Now excuse me for extrapolating the actual factuals but a brother has got to be thinking that there's a little bit more going on up in the Hotel Setai's
Word is Donkey was also chilling earlier in the evening with cut buddies Quincy Jones, Ice-T and T's jaw dropping shorty Coco. Now my boy Front Row Freddie first hipped me to Coco by dropping a few choice glossys on the wire. The first set fried my laptop monitor - the poor thing just could take it.
A few years before Ice-T hooked up with Coco, I peeped him at the Mirage Hotel/Casino in Vegas with his old girl who was also rocking a 13 on the 10 scale Shorty Damn Meter. I saw her browsing alone in the gift shop and *knew* there was no way someone that fine could just be by herself in a Vegas hotel gift shop. Five seconds later T stepped to her, I'm like I knew it! and I gave him the homeboy nod, he dropped a 'Wassup, boss?' and rolled off into the casino hard honeybunching (aka holding hands) with his girl. *sigh* I never get tired of telling that story, y'all, but now as I close this post Old Tyrone can't help but wonder what ever happened to T's old girl? I wonder if she ever thinks I wonder what happened to that smooth brother in the gift shop? Damn - timing is everything, y'all...
