XXL. Issue hits newsstands on June 7th, but peep an excerpt below. B’lee dat.
“Honestly, I gave him the floor,” Baby says of Weezy. “He wanted it. I been with him since he was seven years old, eight years old. I been in his life all of his life, and he was like, “Let me handle, it.” At the time, me as an artist, losing my sister and everything I was going through personally, I was just like, ‘Go ahead, I’ma just support what you gon’ do. You can handle it.’ And I took a step back. Probably was the smartest move I ever made in my life was to let him go ‘head.”
Yet again, another NBA Baller may have to pay a fine for their quick temperedness and lack of judgment.
Finding himself in hot water, Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah definitely had a “Kobe” moment, during Sunday night’s game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals. After picking up his second foul in the first quarter, Noah allowed his temper to get the best of him.
This footage demonstrates Noah’s verbally abusing a fan and yelling “F*** you, f*****.” Shortly after the game—which the Heat won 96-85—Noah was quick to tell reporters.
"I apologize. The fan said something to me that I thought was disrespectful, and I got caught up in the moment, and I said some things that I shouldn't have said. I was frustrated and I don't mean no disrespect to anybody. I just got caught up.”Noah seems somewhat apologetic but clearly Kobe’s situation (he was fined $100,000 for shouting F***ing F****t at a referee) wasn’t a learning experience; guess money can pay your way out of anything even anti-gay slurs. —Noelle Lattimore
