Last week Nicki Minaj told Hot 97 how she spoke to Foxy Brown before and had a conversation. Which she spoke about Lil Kim in the so called conversation she had with Foxy. But is Nicki telling the trust? As Foxy Brown tweeted this below?
I’ve heard you mention how the good that you’ve done is easily forgotten. Do you feel that you’ve been treated unfairly?
If I place my value in the way humans treat me, then maybe. But they’re human, man―they can’t help themselves. They do that to people they know personally. So how can I expect them to treat me, only knowing me through television? They did that to Jesus. They did that to Martin Luther King, Malcolm X, Muhammad Ali. They did it to every great person you could possibly think of. When it was all good, they was with them. When things got bad, then they was against them.
But in this case things didn’t “get bad.” It’s something you did.
Let me just say this: [he sits up on the couch] If you look at a guy who came up, no pops in the house, moms on welfare, food stamps; started selling dope when he was 12, 13 years old, came up handling guns, being in shoot-outs; started going to jail when he was 15. In all of this chaos and this mischief and lawlessness, the person who was just in jail for machine guns and silencers turns his life around. And now you want to crucify him ―for what? Three pills. I mean, of course it’s wrong and unacceptable and inexcusable. No problem. But in the grand scheme of things, it’s rather petty. It’s rather petty to hold someone’s feet to the fire for something so small when they have overcame things that were so big. All that could have been going wrong―if I was riding with more guns, or if I had gotten into a shoot-out and killed somebody, then I could see that. But just think about it. I’ve gotten it down to this much.
How did you get a drug habit?
I had a lot of work done to my teeth. Oral surgery, extractions, six, seven, eight root canals. Between January to February. As soon as I got out, I had a lot of stuff done. In the joint, you eat shit that is unhealthy for you. I had fillings that fell out and stuff that had to get dealt with. Of course for the pain they gave me oxycontin and hydrocodone. And, mind you, on October 13, 2007, I had cut off everything―weed, alcohol. Then I get these pills and I start taking them for the pain at first. And then I’m like, Wait―this shit makes me feel good. And it’s legal. After the pain went away, I kept taking it. I had like five, six prescriptions. So I had, like 80 pills. Everybody else might have a drink or smoke a blunt, I took a pain pill. Times when I had 18-, 20-hour days, I’d take a pain pill. And eventually I developed―I guess―the beginning stages of dependence.
Have you talked to Eminem about addiction?
Sure. We got a record together, and we talked a lot. I asked him how he knew he was an addict. Basically if you put yourself in harm’s way… if you risk that, you’ve got to assume that there is something fundamentally wrong with your thought process.
The 2010 American Music Awards are tonight which I thought I would do a post on. AMA is one of the biggest award shows on the calendar year just like the Grammys and VMAs. It will be an interesting night to see who wins awards and who does not. Also there are performances from Rihanna, Usher, Katy Perry and many more. Some of the presenters for it our Ryan Seacrest, John Legend, Nicki Minaj, Keri Hilson, Trey Songz and more. The nominations below are for some of the main awards which are hip-hop, R&B etc related. The ones in bold are my guesses who will win.
Artist of the Year - Eminem, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Kesha, Justin Bieber
For this one I cant decide between Eminem and Lady Gaga both had a great year. But have a feeling Gaga will probably in the award but who knows?
Favorite Male Artist - Justin Bieber, Eminem, Usher
It should be a win for Em here.
Favorite Female Artist - Ke$ha, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry
Katy Perry for this I reckon.
Favorite Album - Justin Bieber/ My World 2.0 , Eminem/ Recovery , Katy Perry/ Teenage Dream
Have to go with Recovery that album was a classic.
Favorite Hip-Hop Male Artist - B.o.B. , Drake , Eminem
All of them have had a great year but have to go with Em again im not being Em biased on all these awards just he has had an incredible year.
Favorite Hip-Hop Album - Drake/Thank Me Later, B.o.B The Adventures of Bobby Ray Eminem/Recovery
I went with B.o.B here, it deserves an award.
Favorite Soul/Rhymthm & Blues Music Male Artist - Chris Brown, Trey Songz, Usher
It will be close between Usher and Trey Songz.
Favoruite Female Artist - Alicia Keys, Sade, Rihanna
All three are great singers but Alicia Keys album was to good.
T-Mobile Breakthrough Artist - B.o.B, Justin Bieber, Mike Posner, Travie McCoy, Taio Cruz, Jason Derulo, Ke$ha, Lady Antebellum
Either Justin, B.o.B or Kesha but I reckon Bieber will get this one.
