After this past mid-term election cycle anything is possible. Jay-Z says give him eight years and maybe he will be our first “real” black President. Not saying that President Obama isn’t black, “real” as in being the first President from the hood and “‘real” as in another name that rhymes with Jigga. On the subject of running for President, Jay-Z told BBC Radio 1 Newbeat:
Give me a chance…Maybe in eight years, I’ll be the President.
When discussing President Obama, Jay-Z stands by his President Is Black’s side:
I thought the new Kanye West was going to be a little less vocal, but no, he’s still the same Runaway lyrics. After finally seeing the leaked pictures, I can understand why he’s a little cocky. Moving on! Kanye West had an interview with Funkmaster Flex on Hot 97 in NYC where he cleared the air on a few questions:
When asked about his album cover where he has a Phoenix like image of Amber Rose with a feather in a place where the sun doesn’t shine, he was real slick when he let it be known he was chilling with his ex-fiancee when he thought of the idea:
“It was disappointing to me because… I was chilling with my ex-fiance about three months ago—Alexis, because we’re still good friends—and she was like, ‘You’re very ‘70s right now, just your whole vibe, when the artistry was on that level’… It’s a level of purity that I feel like has been tainted. For my kids, if it’s proper art I would definitely allow them to see that. I was in fourth grade painting nude women.”
When asked about the Runaway video and Amber Rose, Kanye West takes another swipe at Amber Rose saying she was a spur of the moment rock-star type of thing:
“She definitely was an inspiration for me… You have to realize in my situation with the ups and downs that I’ve been through, the losses, the ups, just everything, sometimes you make decisions like, ‘I’ma just do this one right here. I’m try this one.’ It’s proper rock star sh*t! Sometimes people get married in a week.”
Finally when asked about his peen pics being leaked, he was upset, but for the wrong reasons.
Lil Wayne has been released from jail and already the drama is flowing. According to Baller Allert, Lil Wayne had a woman by his side, and her name is Candace “Black” Cabrera from the from Flava of Love. But is it really? Candace Cabrera looks a lot like Tammy Torres who has been linked to Lil Wayne in the past.

the one on the right pictured above also appeared in the Mr. Officer
video. They look a lot a like as you can see from a previous post.
Perhaps the new girl is Candace, but he does have a long history with Tammy.
In the meantime, TMZ is reporting that Lil Wayne is now free, and that’s definitely some good news and worth celebrating:
The rapper was released this morning from Rikers Island jail in New York City … after serving 8 months of his 1-year sentence, according to the NYC Department of Correction website.
