Earlier in the week, Harlem’s jailed rapper Max-B called MouthToEars.com to give his fans an update. In his phone interview, Max Biggaveli revealed that he will be releasing his autobiography The Wavy Baby soon. In the book, Max will discuss his life, growing up in Harlem, and personal relationship with Jim Jones and Chrissy. Max-B who was sentenced to 75-years in jail also announced that he will be home in December. Back in April Max’s appeal process was done. He’s just waiting for a letter from the prosecutors to response, which will be the final decision. That decision could be made as early as next week.

Straight G-Code: Sorry 50 Cent But T.I. Said He Isn’t Beefing On Twitter

Earlier today Friday (November 25), I reported that T.I. is covering the December/January issue of Vibe magazine. In his in-depth interview with veteran journalist Bonsu Thompson, T.I. talked about people (50 Cent) criticizing his wife Tiny for not taking the drug charge, “I’ma tell you, 50 Cent and anybody else, we not gonn’a  have no discussion about what my ole lady should’a, would’a, couda done for anything as it pertains to me,” begins his rant. “We ain’t gonn’a do that. I’m the only one in my family that’s gonna take a lick when it pertains to the legal system. Since me, none of my other family members have seen a jail cell. Nobody. I’m the last one. The buck stops here. I feel that a person that stands behind [his woman for a criminal charge] is a coward anyway.”

Apparently 50 Cent wasn’t feeling T.I.’s comment and took to his official Twitter account @50Cent to response to what T.I. said. Peep what 50 said below:

“Man I just saw something T.I said in VIBE about a tweet I wrote when he caught his drug case. He just got out a jam and caught a new one”

“Any other time a nigga done. Get caught with 10 machine gun an silencer then catch a drug charge. You will f**k around and get natural life”

“This boy got a get outta jail FREE card. Don’t get emotional over your lady. It a get you in some sh*t you don’t want to be in.”

“If U can get 5 years easy 4 some sh*t and I’m the support of my family. Why would it be wrong if ya lady had to take probation? Shit she ballin to lol”

Sorry 50 but T.I. isn’t beefing on Twitter. T.I. is about that straight G code. Peep T.I.’s tweet below:

Front Page: T.I. Covers Vibe

Since being freed from prison this past September, T.I. have been a busy man. He recorded 45 tracks for his forthcoming LP, entitled Trouble Man, shot a docu-style series with his wife Tiny, now he is covering the December/January issue of Vibe magazine. Below are some excerpts:

T.I. on people criticizing Tiny for not taking the drug charge

“I’ma tell you, 50 Cent and anybody else, we not gonn’a  have no discussion about what my ole lady should’a, would’a, couda done for anything as it pertains to me,” begins his rant. “We ain’t gonn’a do that. I’m the only one in my family that’s gonna take a lick when it pertains to the legal system. Since me, none of my other family members have seen a jail cell. Nobody. I’m the last one. The buck stops here. I feel that a person that stands behind [his woman for a criminal charge] is a coward anyway.”

I doubt she would have gotten any time.
She wasn’t gonna catch it period, ’cause I’m there. That wasn’t even a consideration. Even if she asked me to I would’ve been like, “Nah, you trippin’. “

So you didn’t feel you were more valuable to your family, employees and business partners on the street?

That’s a discussion between me and another man. Not with the mother of my children. Not with the nurturer of my household.

MMG Takeover Rick Ross & Wale: The Billboard Cover Story

For the first time ever, Rick Ross and his protegé Wale are covering this week’s issue of Billboard magazine. This issue features an in-depth look at the partnership of Ross and Wale. Below are some excerpts:

The idea of being “clutch” — of having a sixth sense for the defining moment — is one that Rick Ross relates to. After all, the 35-year-old Miami rapper has quietly been clutch his entire career.

When he needed a hit first single five years ago, “Hustlin'” became an anthem, selling 733,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

When he needed to win over critics, he released a front-to-back classic, “Teflon Don,” in 2010. It sold 682,000 copies and topped out at No. 2 on the Billboard 200.

“I understand why New York’s a huge fan of Derek Jeter — because in the playoffs he always delivered, he always came through,” Ross says. “And that’s what it is when it comes to big records, big collaborations. I was fortunate last year to have a run with the biggest names in the game.”
