l'm writing to clear up a misunderstanding that some of your readers may have had

dilf,ffig'"".,00

after seeing my ad [for G-Mack] in OZONE. I dropped a mjxtape in Kentucky back in 2001 which had a freestyle over the Nappy Roots' singte, "Aw Naw, Helt Naw" beat. {n my rhyme, I said, "l'm from Kentucky, but not neighbors with Nappy Roots." I received a Lot of good feedback from the record and decided to use the Une as the slogan for my magazine ads. lt never crossed my mind that people woutd consjder the statement to be a low blow at the Nappy Roott. When I ran the ad in OZONE, I began to hear different storles aboLrt the Nappy Roots and I aLtegedty beefing. I have atways been on good terms with the Nappy Roots, bLlt at the time I had lost conlact with them whjch didn't hetp the situatjon. Peopte woutd ask, "Do you and Nappy Roots stjlL taLk?" When I tett people that lhaven't heard from them in a wirite it causes them to make further assumptions that we are beefing. But the fact is, they're busy workjng on thejr music and tour'

His name says it atL: Prince of Crunkl What can lsay, he's great at what he does. - Myoshi, myoshikw34@aol.com (Houston, TX) Thanks for your cover story on Pjtbull.

ing and I am busy with my career 50 that leaves minj'

mal time to communicate wjth one another. PeopLe shoutd reaLize that just because we do noi keep constant communication doesn't mean that we don't have a positive retationship. This weekend lwas in Tal{ahassee for TJ's DJ's Record Pool meeting, and I met up with a partner of mjne who goes to schooi jn Taltahassee. He informed me that he was at a locaL barbershop recentty and watked in on a discussion about the atteqed conflict between me and the Nappy Roots. He said the peopte in the barberghop weren't talking as if they were confused about the beef; instead, thev were talking as if we were of' ficiatty at war against one another. Apparentiy, they had seen the ad in OZONE. To hear that this G-Mack vs. Nappy Roots topic was coming up randomty was disturbing, because ldjdn't reaLize how widespread the subject was. lt amazes me how people are so controverslatJ and forget about what happened to

admire him and his lvork. From my point of

view he's the nun'ber one

We loved yoLrr cover story on Pitbtitl and are wondering if he has a fan ctub of some kind. We don't want to come across tike hoes, we just tove how he raps about his prjde of being Cuban. And damn, does he look good! We went to his concert in Las Vegas last month, and when went to Mjamj for

vacation we ended up seeing hjs show again. We coutd feet the love there.

Anyway, il's been said that fame is a sexuaLly transmitted djsease- lt'5 true; why etse woutd names like Monica Lewinsky, Paris Hilton, and GLorja Vetez appear jn our pop culture vocabulary? So, who better to talk about sex than celebrities for our lecond annual sex edition? Unfortunateiy, we weren't able to interr'iew everyone. Ciara and Shawnna both declined to discuss their goodies and pussy poppin'. The queen of dancehatl fitth, Lady Saw' was in a bad mood when we asked her to tist ten vrays to steal someone elses' man, and Lil Jon declined to discuss his recent bachelor party on the record. BLrt, we do have some controversial. groupie confessjons, Jacki-O's extensive sexuaL dictionary and some interestjng stories from artists tjke LjL Scrappy, Camron, and Lil Wayne. AIL jn all, this month's sex issue witi excite you, but ultimately leave you feening for more - just Like the reat thing.

A few of you are probabLy expectinq me to comment on a cedain indie record label o\aner who's read The Art of Wat one loo many times. I had a few chor'ce words prepared, but I decjd€d not to particjpate in the Jedj mind tricks. He already showed his true "family" vatues jn Jacksonviltej there's nothing more for me to say. l'd al5o like to thank the guy who dumped his drink on my camera at Trina's birthday party. Thanks for offering to buy me a new one, too.

S^lay:

Admjttedly, having spent a few long days on the road, I was tjred and not in a great mood to begin with. lwander around the party getting lome shots of the DJs (C Styles and Mars, thanks for the shoutouts!) and cetebs. Then, ! sit down at a tabte way in the back, far away from everyone etse, obviousty minding my own bu5iness and wanting to be Left aLone. Here comes Nefertiti, snatching a magazine off my piLe and handing me her business card. I have a camera around my neck, 50 she assumes that I'm just a pirotographer working for the magazine. She asks jf I'm avaiiabie to freetance, and sarcasticalty comments that "they" must not be paying me enough. I smlle politety. Next, she starts flippinq through the magazine and crjticizing. Ihe cover? "This is so corny!" There's aiways room for improvement, but I've been doing graphic desjgn for five years now and I've never heard it described as "corny." lt'5 just an opinion, so I tet it slide. Page by page, Nefertiti has a negative comment on everything. And yet she is stitt reading. The photo galteries? "Oh my God, look at how many pjctures they have crammed together How av!4utl" When she gets to the middte and sees the CD inse.t (which reqojred hours and hours of manual labor by myself, MaLik, and Mercedes) she wrinktes her face up jn disgust and explains that she needs a djfferent magazine because her CD is "cGcked." I expiain that it is not the CD that's cracked, jt's just the smalt opening in the clear adhesive sleeves where the CDs are inserted. She responds snottjLy, "l guess they can't afford better packaging." Finatty, she spends a good thirty seconds attempting to rip the CD sleeve oLrt and stick it in her pretty tittte purse. She jsn't smart enough to just remove the CD from the pLastic packagjng, so she gets frustrated and throws the entjre magaztne onto the floor under the tabte and storms away.

our chief of staff, They keep the shit moving, make sure shit is in order for us. Ctay brings in different opportunitjes and Doug [Petersonl does as wett, They're tike two different reatms of the company, CLay deats more with promotions and endorsements, things tike that.

Drama's Gorgsto 6rillz: Down With the King mixtape is blaring through the speakers over and over, a constant reminder of T.l.'s lyrical assault on his current rival Lil Flip. Despite being locked up for part of the year,

You

T.l. certainly knows how to keep his name current ln the streets. still, you get a glimpse of T.l. the famity man when he takes a quick lunch break in the studio lounge with his youngest son and longtime girlfriend, former Xcape singer Tameka "Tiny" Cottle, A few weeks later, we caught up with T.l. by phone while handting some business in NYC for his upcoming album, Urban Legend.

when we were doing your photo shoot, you were commenting that there's "nice T.1." and "cocky T.1." ls there some truth to that?

stirred up the streets with your DJ Drama/Gangsta Grillz mixtape aimed at Lil' Fllp, Down with the King, There's been a lot of controversy around you calling yourself the "King of the South," so how can you justify that?

Man, the peopLe support me, period. I'm the King I said so.

of the South because

the conversations you had with him about Lil' Flip were being recorded? Yeah, yeah. He knew he was being recorded. Did Scarface know that

I have a hot head sometimes, but I don't think I'm hatf as bad as peopte think I am. lt's ying and yang. There's positives and negatives to everything

Now that the South is finally getting recognition in the hip-hop world, do you think it hurts the South to have two of lts biggest artists against

you do.

each other?

You had one of your children there with you at the studio. How do you balance having a career and having kids? It's a sacrifice. t have four kids, and basicatty, l'm being there for them less now so I can be there more latet That's a mission, making sure they have everything they need. Luxuries and necessities. They're not gonna be spoited, though. They're gonna have the things they need but they witt underctand and respect the vatue of a dotlar as long as I'm there. You made a joke that your son should be on the magazine cover - would you encourage your kids to rap, or be in the entertainment business? I want my kids to do whatever they want to do. I want them to have access to anything they want to do. ldon't want their options to be limited.

As you've been promoting your new album,

it

seems

like you've been working hard to brand your label

Grand Hustle more so than the label you're signed to,

Atlantic.

lmean, Attantic don't need my hetp. Attantic was the home of Patti LaBetle and a tot of other tegends, not mistaken.

Do you plan to

if

l'm

IT'M

I don't give a damn if you're in the South, North, East, or West, if two men have a probtem they gonna have to handle the situation. Att this shit about

"unity," man, you just unify with whoever you wanna unify with. Ain't

none of your business what the next man do. You can't telt me who not to muthafuckin' have a disagreement with, Where the fuck were you when this bitch was on stage sayin' "Game Over"? I don't give a fuck about what none of these niggas say. That's how shit gets btown up to be bigger than

it

reatty is. There's other peopte comin' in sideways, puttin' they nose where a muthafucker don't betong. I don't need no hetp, no muthafuckin' peanut galtery Shit, man, anybody who knows me knows that anything I say, pimp, it's cause I mean it. I ajn't never said nothing that wasn't on my heart. I ain't never said anything that I didn't stand behind, whether it's "King of the South" or anything I've said on the record. Did you get

the reaction you were hoping for from the mixtape? Man, I ain't looking for no reaction. l'm lookjng to uncover the truth and tett peopte what's reaLty going on. There's a lot of muthafuckers faking and flossing and tying for so long, l'm showing peopte what the real is. lf you choose to betieve [Lit' Ftip] then continue on, but if you're the kind of person I am, you'tl want to know the truth for reaL and l'm just putting r't out there for you. Muthafuckers are lying, man. I wanna show how they are when they ain't actin' tike they hard. Man, quit muthafuckin' flexin'for the cameras and microphones and be a reat person. I ain't lookin'for no muthafuckin' reaction, I don't give a fuck. I gotta say what's on my heart. That's the way I Live and operate.

THE

KING OF

THE rerease arbums rrom Grand H"'rt BECAUTE I 'AUTH

through Atlantic? That's possible. lt hasn't been discussed yet. We've got Big Kuntry Mac-Boney, AK, and C-Rod.

$AID tA.n

Do you think it's gonna be harder for them to establish their own identities, if they come out kind of under your wlng? A lot of people are tired of rappers putting on their friends. It's gonna be easier for them. They don't have to go through the shit I went through. They're spoited, to tetL you the truth. But it ain't just me coming out and trying to put my friends on, Even back when we first met each other, I toLd 'em I couLd rap and they were tike, "Shit, us too." We atways had a common goat, it just happens that I got there first. We've

spent a significant amount of time together; we've known each other since we were ten, fifteen.

One of the arguments Lil' Flip has made is that he'! sold more records than you. Man, he Lyin'. That man sotd tike 1.4, 1.3 mittion right? This man got a double aLbum, which means it gets doubte scans, That means he's got two albums beinq sotd for 512.99, the same price as one of mine. 5o this man ain't so{d but 700,000 records, man, Right now we've lsoLd] Uke 910,000. It'5 smoke and mirrors, man. lt's that buttshr't that niggas be puttin'out

there. What's the first release coming from Grand Hustle? It's gonna be a group atbum, PSc. Pimp Squad Ctick. We're gonna put that out the beginning of 2005. lt's catted 25 to Lr'fe. That's what the guys wanted to name the atbum. They've reatly got control of this project. At the end when it's crunch time I might add a tit'something, but they've decided what songs they want to be on the aLbum and what artjsts they want to work with. I ain't reatty tryin' to dictate this project. From what they totd me, they agreed on the atbum titLe 25 to Lile 'cause they att turned 25. and they gon' be on this shit for tife. On Nelly's song "Pretty Toes, " you've got a line where you said, "l don't wanna rap no more, l'm C-E-O." What's the advantages and disadvantages of being an artist and being an CEO? The advantages of being an artist is that everywhere you go, peopte know who you are. More recognition, more special treatment. The groupies are good (ioughs), and you get in ctubs free. But the disadvantage is that you neyer know where the money's going untess you take extra special tjme to find out. You're not reaLly connected with the ins and outs of the profits and tosses of the company.

Who's involved with Grand Hustle as a labet besides you, and what are

their roles? Me and Jason

lceter] own the company togethet and Ctay [Evans] i5 like

think bootlegging has anything to do with it? Bootlegging hurts everybody, not just me, lt hurts everybody's potentiat. I mean, if you come out today and soLd 10 mittion, you coutd've sotd 13 mittion if it wasn't for the bootLeggers. That's just part of the business Do you

right now. What other side income do you have besides music? I do my thing. I have several sources of income, but I'm not gonna put 'em atl out there. I do shows, I setl cars Hea\ry Chevy Ctassic Chevys - that we restore. I'm about to open a new restaurant with my uncte in Bankhead. We got att kinds of things we're working on. When you put out sonEs like "Look What I Got," do you think the average person who doesn't have a lot of money can relate to that? I feet tjke its 50/50. Hatf of 'em Like to hear that shit 'cause jf they had

the money they'd do the same thing. But you can't oversaturate the

market with bragging about what you've got, because you've got to have some kind of substance and meaning other than that. So, I feet tike your messaqe shoutd be 50/50 or maybe 60/40 depending on which qroup of peopte you're trying to reach. When I say, "Look what I got, " l'm speaking on material things and atso "respect from the niggas and G's." l'm tatking about my fottowing, my admiration and presence in the ghetto, not just OZONE MAGAZINE

anybody. They're onLy worried about themsetves and how they could make

their famiLr'es Uves better. What would you do if you were President? l'd try to provide substantiat emptoyment for peopte so there woutd be less crime. You can't just teLt peopte, "Don't selt dope." lt's just a way to pay the bitts. You can't tetl peopLe, "Don't go rob." I don't rob or setL dope, I don't do anything iltegal for money anymore. But if I had to choose between setting dope or my chitdren starving, guess what l'm going to be doing? lt's not reatistic to expect someone to make that choice. 5o, I feet tike pro" viding adequate emptoyment shoutd definitety be high on the Presidentiat priority tist. I atso feet tike education shoutd be equal in the ghettos and the suburbs. Just because you're from the ghetto, that doesn't mean you shoutd have a subpar education. I think your educatjon shoutd be just as extensive and advanced as someone who Lives in a rich neighborhood.

Clockwise from above: Grand Hustle's Jason Geter, Ctay Evans, & Doug Peterson; Tl. & his girtliny (photo: Sandra RoseJ; T.l. performing in TaLtahassee, FL

What was your education like? ldidn't even graduate hjgh schoot, man, Where do you think you got your business sawy from? I don't know. I just started reading the newspaper when I was three or four years oLd. My mom is smart as helt, real book smart. My daddy wa5 reaL street smart. I guess that's where I got it from. Since this is

the "5ex issue" of OZONE, I'm going to name some females,

and you can tell me how you think they'd be in bed. Gloria Velez? I think she's been through a lot of nasty shit, so she'd be reat open. I don't know, I might wanna try putting her in the same bed with some of the other girls on your List. Beyonce. She

off timits, man. That's my homeboy girt.

Vivica Fox. She seems, uh, experienced. l'd want her to teach me something, When l'm with otder women I wanna learn something, ya dig?

tatking about my jewetry and cars. Trina-

After an album like Trop ltuzik, now that you're a cetebrity and you don't have to be on the streets hustling every day, how can you still

She seems

speak to that audience? Because I know what it's Like

Remy Martin. Nah, she'd wanna be in controt. lain't with that. lcan't do that. (pduse) Whoa! Speak of the deviL, there go Remy right now. Let me go hotta at Fat Joe about some business. Hotd on. (long, long pause)

to be there. I ain't forgot. I stiLt have a presence there. When I say l'm from the ghetto, l'm not just tatking shit. I tived there for the majority of my tife, and it ain't shit to go back. I ain't never gonna be broke again, but I stitt go back and show [ove. try to show peopte that if I made it out of here, you can too. lt means

ljke she might have a few tricks up her steeve.

I

somethjng to me, and that coutd change somebody's life. Yo(,t don't gotta just accept your fate. Some peopLe feet tjke they don't have a chance, tike they can't do nothing with their tife. You provide hope.

You've got a Lot of fans who aren't from the ghetto. Why do you think

they relate to your music? Trop h'luzik was like 70130. 70% was catered to niggas who don't know nothing but that way of tjfe. With this atbum, I feet tike it's 50/50. lt don't just cater to them njggas. lt speaks to the trap niggas, but at the same time it speaks to cats that don't know nothing about the trap. There's cats in the suburbs going to coLtege who just tike to go party. They don't tike to fight and shoot, they just like to have a good time and ride around to they big-ass house and tife they happy tife. lt speaks to those peopte. too. lt s very diverse. Who is featured on the album? Features, l've got Nelty, 8.G., Lit Wayne, Lit Jon, Trick Daddy, PSC ctique, Jazze Pha, Daz Dittinger. As far as production, l've got beats from Jazze Pha, the Neptunes, DJ Toomp, David Bannet Scott Storch, Swizz Beatz, and LitJon.

It seems like just recently that they said you'd be locked up for three years. I hadn't been sentenced at att, that was just somebody taLkin'about what they thought was going on. l'm done with that now, l'm just on probation.

(TI. interrupts the interview, shocked at something he's seeing walking down the street in NYC. "Do you know Seon John makes a fuckin' doggie sweoter, man?!? l've got to muthafu.kin' holla at Puff...")

Speaking of Puff, do you have any comments on the election? I have two comments. One, y'att shoutd go out and vote. Iwo, jf Bush wins, we're fucked. They're atl for self, man. They have no attiance with

OZONE MAGAZINE NOVEMBER 2OO4

Okay, how

'bout Paris Hilton?

She's interesting, yet frajt. I don't think she coutd take it. I don't generatty do white women. l've had, uh, encounters, but l've never stept with a white woman. lt's just that l'm an ass man. I tike asses, and white women generalLy have more titties. Not to say that they're not nice; I tike a set of nice titties as much as the next man. I know a Lot of coot white broads and we can go kick it and drink and have a good time, but you know, that attractjon just don't be there. I've seen a few on TV that I might consider.

Like a Britney Spears or Christina Aguilera? it. Chrjstjna coutd get it. Britney got a lit' ass back there! But l've onty seen 'em on ry so I don't know. They may have added something to make 'em look a tittte more votuptuous. Yeah Britney could probabty get

Do you

llike

think there's

a

difference sexualLy between different races?

Latin girts, like Puerto Ricans and Brazitians. latso like mixed girls a tot, I don't think there's a difference sexuatty, though. lt just depends on the person. Has your sex life changed since you became a celebrity? Man, l've atways been that way. lwas aLways a ladies man. When lwas in high schoot, lwas the nigga with atL the girts. I was in the 8th grade tryin' to hotta at the girLs in 12th grade. lwas in the 5th grade tryin'to hotta at the girLs in the 8th grade. Right now, this just shows everybody what kinda nigga I am. I haven't changed. I was with you in Tallahassee the other day after your performance, and there were a lot of females chasing after you saying they love you and they'll die if they don't touch you. How do you keep stuff like that from going to your head? I know they gon' say that about anybody. lt's not me, it's my position that's making them do that. When you start betieving that it's you, that you're the reason, that's when you get big-headed and lose sight of what's realty important, That's what Public Enemy meant when they said, "Don't beueve the hypel"


How did you originally get into the music industry? lwas born into it. I have a lot of famity that are musicians orin the music industry I guess you coutd say I was a roadie, carrying bags, being on the scene, being a runner. When I started taking it seriously and putting my focus into it, my first officiat job was on an internship [evel at Jive. What artlsts did you go on the road with? Brand Nubian, Heavy D, X-CLan, Pac, a lot of different artists. Anybody lwas cool with who needed somebody just to be on the team and be focu5ed and hetp promote. ljust started doing street team and regional coLtege radio promotions, and that's hor,v lgot a job at Hot 97.5 in Attanta back in the day, I wa5 a programmer during the day and a personatity at night. Why did you get out of radlo?

fired. I trul.y don't know why, to this day. The technical reason that was given to me was that I didn't do my job sufficiently, but I know that I did, I guess it wa5 just potitics, or for whatever reason. I love radio, to I got

this day. I tove

it

behind the scenes and on the air.

think you'll ever go back into radio? haven't reatty teft, because l'm constantLyin contactwith programmers and DJs. I tatk to DJs, I tel,l 'em how to do their breaks better. I come up with radio promotions to hetp promote my artists. I woutd tove to get back into radio. Do you I

Ludacris was a personality on the same radio station, right? ls that how you met hlm? Yeah, he used to come to my office and drop off music and ask questions about the industry just to get feedback. At some point, we just created a retationship and a mutual respect. When he asked me to be his manager, at the time I reatty didn't want to do it. A tot of artists had asked me to manage them because lwas the music director, so they figured lcoutd get their record ptay. Something about him and the way he approached me just made me say yes. From there, jt's been history. When you first heard Ludacrls rap, what appealed to you? The thing that stuck out was that he sounded different than everybody

else that was coming out of the south at that time, and he could definitety rap his ass off.

Have you watched him grow musically since that time? l've seen so much groMh it's ridiculous. lt's not even the same artist, in the sense of progression. He's a perfectionist, He atways wants to progress and he doesn't want to be repetitive, he's aLways tooking for

diversity. A lot of peopte speak hlghly of you a5 a manager. What do you think separates you from everyone else? I don't know. I guess it's just a matter

of

perspective. Maybe my approach and how I deal with business sets me apart. Everybody's job is to market and promote their product. The product, in this case, is the artist. A tot of peopte can do that wett, and from that point on, it's att about retationships. I like interacting with peopte because it

atlows me to transfer and bounce things off them and vice versa, and

that

DTP. How would you analyze or explain that

situation? I can analyze it a bunch of different ways, but the onty way I can explain it is that dude just felt he wanted to do his own thing separate from DTP The stuff that he's sayjng about me personalty is fabricated. Everyone's gonna ask, "Why woutd you teave DTP when you just soLd three mittion records?" It's an army, a team, He's gotta make stuff up so that it witt make sense. There's peopte getting in his ear. lf there's an issue, bring it to the source. Bring it to us. He hasn't talked to me in over ejght months, He never tatked to me about the situation, In passing I'd always say, "Whenever you're ready to sit down, tet's tatk," and he'd say, "Yeah, we'tl get together," but it never happened.

think he would have sold three mil if he wasn't Mth DTP? It's possibte. There's ptenty of artists that have good records and do Do you

nothing and there's plenty of whack artists that btow up. lt's all about how you're presented to the wortd, and how they accept you.

it make you hesitant to sign any new artists? mean, that's the business I'm in. The onty thing that makes me hesitant is that l'm a very personat person. it just makes me wary because me and his reLationship was business and personat, but it was a definitive Une. I've never crossed it, but to me, he did. Does I

What other projects are you working on? We just did our futt-fledged tabet deal with DTP through Def Jam for our new artists Eobby V Sharissa, Norfclk, and a rock band, Lazy Eye. We picked up FieLd Mob through Geffen, we sti(t have l-20 at Capitat, and we have Playa Circte at Universat. We have deats at four different labets. We're constantty doing fitms through our production company, we've got three movies sold. Ludacris is invotved in some of those, and l-20 is aLso making his acting debut. We're trying to find the next crop of up-and-coming btack HotLywood stars, We're trying to create history create superstars who are very cutturatty relevant. We want to continue to grow as a company and surpass what my mentors have brought into the game so that the peopte who come behind me can surpass what l've done. What ls the key to success? Being open"minded and witting to tearn something new every day.

How do you feel about

sometimes you have to do that.

Are you into porn? l'm not big on porn, because when I'm

with a man it's about me.

Since you've become a celebrity, have you had any male groupies? My criteria for a man is realty, reatly high, so I don't date a tot. 50, the guys that come try to attach themsetves to me because of how I sing or the songs I sing, they never get ctose. I haven't reatly experienced any mate g.oupies. I don't have security so guys can watk up to me after a show and l'tt be cordiat, but they can teLl by my attitude.

what would be the ideal scenario? When you get on stage and perform, it's orgasmic. I perform with a band, so there's so many different energies up there on stage. lf it was porsibte, I woutd tove to just be grabbed off the stage at that moment and just taken, you know what I mean? That woutd be perfect. It's not reatty possibte, cause I might go to jail or something. But that would be great cause it's two of the things I tove so much.

What about your ex-boyfriends or guy friends, have they changed at all since Your career has started to take off? No, cause they know the real Teedra, I've atways acted the same way, But, their homeboys are tooking at the yideo like, "Damn, Teedra fine as hel[," and it kinda makes them feetweird. How important is it to your career fo. you to put forth a sery image? The onty rea5on it's important is because I'm a very sexual person. I'mnottryingto be something l'm not, Everything I write about, even if it's a serious matter, comes across sensual. Being sexy is very important because I'm a woman, so why wouLdn't I be? lt's not that I want to sell it and make everything about sex, but it's a part of every woman. It's a part of everyone.

Whatever

she's doing is great, but l'm not gonna sit here and compete v{ith her. lf he's gonna get aroused by looking at her and have sex with me, no, my ego's too big for that. I'm not into other girls, I know that's some peopte's thing, but I don't want any competition in the bedroom. It's atl about me and how I put it down. When he gets up the next morning I want him to be thinking about Teedra,

Have you been workjng on your stomach?" lt was tike, shit, did I have a gut before? He just kept saying it, and he could barely even see my stomach. He was getting ready to orgasm and kept taLking about my damn stomach. That was kinda weird. Does size matter?

Size is very important. Everybody says it's about the way you use it. No, it's not. lf it doesn't make you feel tike anything is even in there, what is there for you to use? Size is important to me. I don't know about other womenr

By the titt(e side yr'att, there's normalty a door or something. We kinda duckâ&#x201A;Źd off to the side rjght there. I think that having sex in pubtic is very sexy. I don't think sex is a nasty thing or a bad thjng, especiaLty when it's two peopte that care about each other. I think you shoutd do it in public, as long as it's not around kids and stuff! {loughing.,

I'm going to name some rappers, and you tell me how you think they'd bâ&#x201A;Ź tn bed. Lil Wayne? Li[ Wayne is cuLe. he's a handsome young man. I don't know, he's too young for me. I can't took at him in that way.

keep the sex interesting? No, actualLy it was very interesting. lt's even better when you're with somebody for a tong time because you know more about them. Basicatty you've just gotta get into character. Some nights you wanna be sensual and make tove, and some nights you wanna go hard. Some nights you just want it to be reatty qujck so you can go to sleep (Laughing). When you realize you're being routjne, you have to take it to a different levet. No man or woman wants to do the same thing every time you have a sexual encounter Sometimes I'm very submissive, sometimes I'm very controtling. Sometjmes I want to be totd what to do. Sex is never the same.

Jotie. l'm feeting her, she's sexy. You know what reatty tumed me onto her? Her v/ork in lroffic turned me on, how she got shiesty with u.S. Customs and started selting coke 50 her husband coutd get out ofjaiL. (llnform camron that the woman who starred in Traffic was Cdth" erine Zeta-Jones, not Angelino Jolie. An orgument ensues. Com finolly soys, "l'm gonno settle this right now," and diols o number on his cell phone. "Yo, whdt's up with the wlfe who played in Troffic?" he osks the person on the other line, "Catherine Zeto-Jones? Aight, good Iookin'.") Okay, vr'ett I like Catherine Zeta-Jones and Angetine Jotie.

taLkinq to you. I'd be out chasing a hundred fifty mittion peopte. Honestly, I got that "no homo" thing from dudes in Jefferson Projects. They used to say that when I was like tweLve years otd, I'm not the creator, I m just a product of my environment?

Jacki-O?

lnever really met Jacki-O personally, but she looks nice in her videos. Paris Hitton? That's my peoptes, so no comment. ljust seen her the other night, we was at a few parties together in New York. Paris

Halle Berry? Hett yeah! Actuatty, l'm gonna tett you SUCh a funny story about Halte Berry this is some crazy shit, This was back before my first atbum came out, I don't think I even had a video out or anything. lwas in L.A, on a promo tout liust had a CD of snippets from Who's Camron. I was wolfin', I hadn't had a haircut for like two months. I had just got finjshed ptaying basketbatl, so lain't have no shirt on and I was sweaty. l'm getting out of a fifteen-passenger van to go to the ATM and there's a tady there, but I ain't payin' her no mind. I stick my ATM card in the shit, and Jimmy and alt these niggas in the van just start bangin' on the window so I torn around, tike, "What?" They tike, "Yo, that's Hatle Berry!" So I took up tike, "Yo, Hatle, tet me talk to you for a minute," and she's backin' away tike, "No, no, no, l've gotta go." I'm like, chasing her over to the Range Rover, There's a dude in the car leaning back in the seat. I'm tike, "Yo, Hatte, I rapl l"m about to come out! Just take the CD!" She rotted down the window like, about this much (Com holds his fingers on inch opatt to demonstrcte) and took the snippets. she rotled out and we sittin' there buggin' out. That was probabty in earty 1998. Then Last year, 2003, l'm at thjs party in Vegas after a fight. Some boxer had a party, and there's mad niggas jn there, the crazy retarded gir( from Scary Movie, everybody from fuckin' mainstream America was tike, "Camron, we tove you, man!" 5o we chitlin' with Tyrese and Larenz Tate and they tike, "Ah, Cam, we fuckin' love you, 8," and Larenz putls me off to the side, He's tike, "Yo, lfucks wjth you, dawg." So I'm Uke, "Good lookjn', it's att qood." He was tike, "Remember that day when you slid that CD in Halte's car? That was me, when I was fuckin' her, and ain't

Actuatly, the first person I ever had sex with was my baby mama, My son is four now. I was thirteen, we were at her mother's house. What would you do in bed with someone you're dating that you wouldn't do with a groupie?

Sometimes even when you with somebody you ain't wanna cuddle, but with a groupie, you definitely don't wanna cuddte after you bust a nut. You not gonna lay there wjth her and hug her unless you totally drunk, and I don't get that drunk, Either she gotta go or I gotta go. What's your favorite porition?

Velez? She's a freak.

I don't know, it depends on how she's tatking. There's different tevets of freakiness. I don't think I woutd like her cause I've atready seen her on

on sex tapes, I'd probably have to be real drunk. lt'd probabty have to be a party situatjon, tike, me and the boys.

Any relation to Denzel Washington?

Fenzel Washingtonzel.

You're kinda known for the sexy strip club-type hook'. lf you could make a sex soundtrack, what songs would you put on there? It'd definitety have "Girls in the Ctub" by Sho'Nuff. l'd put some Too Short on there, Jodeci, Sitk, Genuwine, and some otd stuff. It'd be kinda raunchy. You've

What's the best strip club in Atlanta? l,{agic City isn't open right now, but they about to open it back up so l'm gonna

say Magic City.

lt's stitt officiat.

trainl Yeah, we'd Sout Train

And

Club Cheetahs, they got some reat nice lookin' chicks in there.

Alicia Keys?

What kind of stripper gets the most

name.

,Aticia Keys is definitety a candidate. she gon' get it att. She can get the reat first

tips from you?

The cootest one, not necessarily the best-lookjng stripper. I [ike somebody that's cooL, not the ones that are tryin' to ptay you tjke you won't be back. For

exampte, if lgo somewhere Uke PinlJp's where the dances are 55, they'tt try to ptay you tike an out-of-towner even thouqh they know you be at Magic City hard. She'tt dance three times and be Uke, "That's 530." 1'm like, "No, baby, that's S15." lhey won't get another dance from me, I don't care what they took tjke. But jf I come back and they act right, then that's coot. I ain't gonna count 'em out yet. Should we expect to see Fenzel's Strip Club anytime in the near future? Yes. You know what? I think me and Big Boj shouLd do a strip ctub. You know, he's got the Little personal strip poLe at his crib, but l'm tatking about an actuatstrip ctub with tike fifty girts. That's his thine, but I mean, I think we shouLd. We haven't reatty tatked about it yet. How would your strip club be different from the rest? When peopte imagine Magic City, they think it's this big etaborate cLub wjth beautifut tights or something tike that with girts waLkjng across the bar, but when you get there it's just a room. I mean, jt ain't hot, as far as the way it looks. As a btack entrepreneur, I wouid take jt to that next tevet. l'd have aquariums and everythjng. I mean, jt's just the b.anding of the name and who you bring through and who's running jt. lf you've got a real hip cat from the streets running jt, it's gonna be a poppin'ctub. lf you've got a square cat on the other side of the city with a beautifut ctub but he don't know nobody, peopte are stitt gonna go to Magic City. lf he don't know nobody, ain't nobody going to his ctub. But, we rnjght go just cause we know he got some quatity shit. PLus, we don't wanna be with the crowd. ldon't wanna be nowhere where you can't walk in the strip ctub, that's crazy.

Like how packed it was at that strip club for the "Get Low" video. Oh, yeah, thatwas crazy. That ptace doesn't even exist now; they tore it down to the ground.

Brigitte Nielsen? Oh, what! I woutd cLjmb up on her back. I wanna wrestte with her. Shawnna?

She kjnda sexy, but me and Shawnna kinda tike buddies. For celebrities now, it seems like putting out a sex tape is the "in" thing to do. Oh, that's old.

Lil Kim?

there's no Jazze Pha sex tapes out theae. Oh, no, not untess somebody etse putted it off. I'm pretty impromptu, though, so nobody coutd .eatty putt nothing tjke that with me. I'm not like, "l'm on my way over to your house,"

Venus E Serena Williams?

So

ljust

pop in.

Who's the top three on Jazze's hit list? Hatte Berry Free, and Metyssa Ford, the girt that just started the show with Tigger on BET.

Naw, cause you don't know what she gonna took

tjke in the morning.

50mething sexual going on. No, nothing tike that. We're real close, though, so maybe that's why peopLe would think that. You know, she might hotd my hand or some' thjng tjke that. But it ain't no thang tjke that.

I like taLL gjrLs, though. Sometimes I tike a square chick that don't know who I am. That's a turn-on. Like, they might have seen me somewhere, but they don't reatty know what I do. They just think I know a bLrnch of people. I tjke sma t girls. I tike girts t5at are irto taking ca.e of their man. Not necessarity spending money on me, but just taking care of me in their capacity. Not necessarily catering to you '100%, but just tetting you know that you're the man. And I'm not saying don't have a voice. Ptease. have a voice. I love a woman with an opinion.

l'm going to name some females

iou i"n t"tt me how you thini "na they'd be ln bed. Let's start with T.ina. Trina is fine. I think she woutd probabty be great in bed, 'cause I've heard more than a few things about her from people in the industry. Jacki-O?

Jacki'O is sexy. She's atso artist.

a

good

Britney Spears? Britney Spears is from Louisiana, so she's a good country girt. I think she's really, reatly attractjve but probabty not great in bed because of her tack of experience, from what I hear. I think I could teach her a few things. You

woutdn't want to know what they

are - that shoutdn't be printed in a magazine (laughing). l'd give her a run for her money. What do you think about using toys or food in the bedroom? I got mysetf, I don't need no toys. I don't do no handcuffs or ropes, l've got enough toys on my body to keep a person interested. How would you describe l1r. Magic''

ideaI woman?

Mr. Magic's ideat girt is somebody with a Lot of innocence. I'm not real ty into the freaky type, the ones that have been with too many peopte. I like innocence, that's attractive

to me, I like a girt with a

ponytail

that just got out of Cathotic schoot. ln that type of situation, I can train 'em and teach 'em- That's what I find

attractive about a woman. I don't tike a tot of makeup, I don't like a tot of fake stuff. Fake fingernaits, atl the accessories to make a woman beautiful, that isn't necessary, I like natural beauty, lf you wake up in the morning and you're beautiful, you'tl keep Mr, l,tagic interested, A woman that makes me happy is a woman who tikes me for me, and it has nothing to do with my stardom or money or whatever, A woman who likes Awood, not l r. Maglc, A woman that's gonna be home cooking dinner and keeping the house ctean, because l'm on the

road consistentty so it's important

to

have somebody maintaining my

home tife.

Do you have a lot of groupies approachlng you? I try to cater to my peopte as much as I can, remembering that this is the entertainment business. I haYe to make them feel special because they're girls that have been buying my CDs. ['ve had] girts come up to me saying, "Magic, if I had one chance with you..," and it's so flat-

tering, but l'm sure they woutdn't want to be treated tike a piece of meat. The first time you treat a girl like that, that's a lost fan. Girts are so emotionat, When she say that, she means everything from her heart and sout and if I don't feel the same and I

take advantage, her feetings wilt get

hun, I try my hardest to treat

everybody the same. I get a tot of girts that come and offer me things, but I let'em know it's just music. lt's best for me to chill. You don't want me to [fuck you] and teave in the morning.

You think I'm what you want, but I'm not. You don't want a man that's

consistentty on the road. Women require a lot of attention. 50, if you make love or have sex for the first time and then you're gone for two months, they gonna feet like, "Oh, he hates me."

Has your sex life changed since you've become a celebrity? Honestly, l'm so focused on my music that my sex tife really hasn't changed. I didn't need to be a star to have sex. I hate to be a bore

for this article, but I'm so focused I don't reatty have tr'me to indutge in stuff tike that. l'rn trying hard to keep my consumers happy. Maybe after l've made thirty mit, I can sit back and have att the sex Iwant. Don't get me wrong, though, I like women. Women are beautiful. Sex is a wonderfut thing, and it's important to have it in your tife. But I try my hardest to stay focused. Do you think there is such a thing as "tgo much" sex?

I don't think there's such a thing if your tife can handte it. lf you're comfortable in life and you've achieved atlthe things you want to, I thjnk you shoutd find some sectuded

istand and fuck your brains out til you die. That's the best way to go

out. But, that's only if you're com" fortable with your achievements.

Ithink a tot of people's

priorities

are messed up. That's why you've got so many whack atbums, because lthe artists] aren't focused on the music and they spend too much time fucking.

l ost people have the pâ&#x201A;Źrception that all rappers fuck grouples alt the tlme. Do you think that's

an

unfair stereotype? Actuatly, I don't think so. Because I betieve that 85% of the peopte that become stars do lfuck groupies]. And I aLso believe that's why you have so many one-hit wonders. The

artists that last for years, entertain for years, are the peopte that's fo' cused. I guarantee if you go to their hotet room, they're steeping, I vatue steep. I go straight from one show to another show, so when I do have a break it's very important for me to steep. We entertain peopte, so men

watching our shows betieve that we're fuckin' fifty hoes every night, but that's unbetievabte to me. To stay focused on my work, when I go up to the room it's time for me to sleep. But, Like I said, probabty 85% of the lrappers] are doing that, and that's why their careers probabty

won't tast. - lnterview & photos by Julia Beverly, jb@ozonemag,com

Fl orn and raised in Jacksonville, FL,24-yearJokisha "Dynasty" Brown is an aspiring l{old ymodel. actress, and rapper who appears on the cover of Fantasy World's 2005 calendar. How did you decide to pursue the entertainment business as a career? First I became interested in acting. Modeting was second, and then rapping. I was a fan of Janet Jack, son and I aLways knew that I wanted to do music and entertain, but ldidn't figure out how tit a cou' pLe years later. Singjng wasn't for me. croups like Satt-N-Pepa inspjred me, Rap reaLty started ctinging to me, and I knew that this is what lwanted to do.

lstarted doing tittle tatent shows, and now I've got the acting and modetjng and musjc. l'm constantly putting my music on hotd for modeting, tryjng to juggte everything at one time. What's on your resume so far? As far as actjng, l've done severatindependent tow budget fiLms and a lot of ptays and fashion shows in Jacksonvitle. We just wrapped up a movie in Mjami caLted Street l.lorey. I ptayed a gangsta girt, and I end up kilting one of the majn characters. l'm tike a hit girl. lt shouLd be at Btockbuster soon. You've got a reputation around Jacksonville as a hustler. How have you earned that reputation? [Photographer and Fantasy Wortd pubtisher Atdrick Wittiams] says l'm hjs number one selter. He has two editions, the Men's Edition and the Dimes Edition. I'm on the cover of both. I was one of the tast sirts to be added to the catendar.

Where do you sell the calendars? Mostly in the cLubs, barbershops, flea markets, and car washes. I get so much [ove, everyone's supportjve, lf l'm jn the grocery store, l'm outside tike, "Hey, wouLd you tike to purchase a catendar?" I'm surprised that even femates have been buying. They make good

Chr

istmas presents.

the guys that buy the calendar hit on you? I get a tot of comptements; they usuatty want me to hook them up wjth different girts. lt makes them happy to buy it 'cause you sign it for them. 5o, they're tetLing their friends they know me or whatever and that's what setts. Do

Any celebrities you've met? I just did the Trick Daddy video for "Let's co," that was a cool set to hang out on. I know Twista, T.1., they're coot. I talk to Tigger every now and then.

Have you had artists offer to help out your career, with 5trings attached? Yeah, I've heard that before. I usualty watk away from situations like that, because peopLe tend to pre-judge me. With the catendar they figure l'd be witting to do certain things, but whatever I earn, I want to earn it the right way.

l I odel and actor Jasun Wiggins has appeared and fiihion shows. Most ffiin many calendars , Y lrecently, you can catch him on the cover of the annual Rundu Men calendar. How did you get started modeling? lwent to schoot at NorfoLk State University, and that's where I started modeting. After that, I spent five years in New York doing more fashion stuff and then I moved to Attanta. I was with my ex-girl at an expo and watked past [Attanta-based photographer and calendar publjsherl Rundu's tabte, and she wanted to work together. This is my second year with Rundu's calendar. Now, l'm on the cover. Do people recognize you often?

It's kind of amazing. I get more recognition from catendar work than any other media.

As a model, have you ever been asked

to do something that made you uncomfortable? It took me a while to get comfortabte within the modeLing reatm because I'm a tittte shy. some of the modets are exotic dancers, so I think it's a tittte easier for them to do certain things. But Rundu made it easy for me. lt's not forced, and you can see that in the images. Do you use

the "l'm a model" pick-up line? No. Actuatly I don't tike to say that. I've noticed that when I say that, the whoLe energy of the conversation changes, usualty for the worse. They think you feet a certain way about yoursetf. I don't like to tett peopl.e that l'm a modeL, I tike my work to tatk for me. lf people notice me, then I apprecjate it, but I don't throw it around. I've been btessed that women have responded wetl to me. Do you date female rnodels? No. Wlth modeting, I always fett tike an outside be-

cause I come from a smatttown. I'm from Hampton, Virginia, the same town asAlten lverson. To go from there to a big city is a different experience.

What attracts you to a woman? I Like sincere women. I tike the progressiveness of Northern women, lthink their sawy is sexy. At the

time, I like some of the traditions of Southern women. l'm big on energy and vjbes. I tike to connect in many different ways other than .just the same

physicat. My ex didn't reatty underrtand what I was doing. she tried, but with modeting, r'f you're not in the industry yoursetf it's hard to understand. She was very jeatous. I was very patient and compromised so much. A tot of times when I went to shoot in the istands, she was right there with me, and I don't think the staff was feeting that because I was there to work. Wlth women, for me it's about the vibe and the connection. lf she's attractive too, that's beautifuL. Everybody wants something nice to look at now and then.

How do you stay in shape? ActuatLy, lthink I'm fat in Rundu's catendar, I have two rotes that l'm lauditioning for], and she caught me when I was preparing for the rote. The guy is big and ripped, so I was getting ready to butk up and then chiset down. I onty had about two weeks notice to get ready for the shoot, which was cooL, but I wasn't jn the best shape. She put me on the cover, though, so I guess it was good enough. Right now l'm eating a Lot and tifting hea\y. When it's time for me to get lean, l'tLstart running in the morning and drinking two or three gatLons of water a day.

NOVEMBER 2OIY

Have you traveled to any interesting places this year? We went to Japan, Brazil, Germany, and London a coupte more times. The women in Japan are reaLly cute, but there's one specific area that's a probtem, They're very lacking in the ass de. partment, and that's a definite requirement. you didn't tap any, uh, Japanese ass? No, but I got some Japanese head. lt's pretty good, actuaLly. Japanese women, they're definitely very skjtLed. So

Did you haye to pay for it? Paying for sex is generatly frowned upon. How does the saying go? Why pay for the cow when you can get the mitk for free? I only paid for sex once. One time in Minneapotis, I gave a chick 5100 to join in and eat some pussy.

Why'd you pay her, was she hesitant to do lt? I r{ouldn't say that she was hesistant, but I kinda caught her at the tail end and she was tired from atl the other shit. Here's the situation; this was after a show. l'm with a chick in my room, and this other girt was in another room on our floor. lt was a whole tot of things going on jn that room that I didn't participate in, because I atready had my own shit going on in my room. I put the girL to steep in my room, and I happened to get the page from the head honcho saying, "Come to my room." So lwent to his room and there was tike four girts in the room with other members of DTP. There was a tot of sturping going on. (laughing, This one girt that I was trying to get wjth, she was done. Her jaws were tired, she ain't wanna do nothing or whatever. 50 I was Like, "Come to my room, l've got something to show you." So I brought her back to see this other girt that I was with. Now, the girl was asLeep, but she was Lookin' at her and I guess she got turned on or whatever. She was like, "l don't know, l'm kinda tired." lwas tike, "l'tt give you 5100 if you crank it up one more time," and she agreed. She saw the ass on the girl and she was tike, yep, I'm going down. Sure enough, it did go down.

or Myrtte Beach. I'm not gonna Look down on them and refer to them as "starstruck" or anything, but basicatLy those are the cities where the freakier shit tends to pop off,

After being on the road for a while, does it calm down?

Oh, yeah, that shit has definitety catmed down. I think I speak for any new artist when I say that when you first start hitting the road, it's atways like, "Ooh, how many bitches can I get with," but after a while it gets otd, man. lt reatty gets otd. There's some nymphos out there, but yeah, niggas have definitety slowed down. For one, the whoLe idea of the constant chase after the show, that shit gets old. Then you've got other factors like the whole Kobe l8ryant] shit, so that's honestty why ljust tike to fuck with peopLe that lalready fucked with before. That wat you atready know it's not an issue, Not to say that I don't meet any new peopte, but most of the time if I touch down in a city where I had a pretty good time before, chances are I'm gonna catt that girt again. What about protection? Oh, c'mon. That's a no-brainer. Atways have the Magnums on-deck, always. Not an issue. ls there anything you'd do in bed with your girl that you wouldn't do with a grouple? Ihat's funny that you ask, because the girts I end up dating are usuatty the ones that act real prudish and won't do certain things. Like, the chick on the road witt probabty swallow, but your majn gjrt is probabty like "Hett no!" Why is swallowing such a big deal, anyway? Aw, come on! The feetingl That shit just, aw' the whote feeting of busting off in somebody's mouth. I can't even begin to articutate the sensation.

What about eatlng ass, like the R Kelly tape? Aw! Nope. And you know what? I haven't even seen the R Ketty tape, to this day, Are there any DTP sex tapes out there? I highty doubt that one! We're so paranoid about cameras, oh no! What determines

lf a girl turns you down, how long would you keep trying? Some girls you know right off the bat you're just gonna be cool with'em, so you aren't reatLy tryin' to make some shit pop off. But generalty, I'tl give a gjrt a grace perjod (ioughirg). lf something don't pop off the first time but the girl is coot, I might stitt stay in touch with her and maintain some type of contact so that next time I roltthrough, some shit coutd happen.

Have you had any situations where a groupie expected it to develop into a relationship? occasionatty, yeah, you'Lt come across a girl who after she's given you the pussy and fantastic head - att of a sudden she'lt be tike. "Damn, I know you probabty got ten other hoes in other cities that do the same shit." She might be right, but what the fuck is she worried about it for? Like, if l'm not deaLing with you in a disrespectful manner, what's the probtem? Do you ever

feel guilty?

About what? Nothing to feel guitty about. You'd onty feet guitty if you're leading somebody on. lf they get the phone catL at three, four in the morning, they know what's up. They make the decision themselves if they want to show up at

the hotel. Do most of these

girls have boyfriends?

Generatty that's something that's not discussed,

but if you're friends with them too eventualty

that topic does come up. Some of these girts do have boyfriends, some of them even have husbands.

What about on the flip side, have you had any groupies go crazy on you? No, I can't say that I have any psycho bitch stories. I did have one experience where a girl tried to steat a tittte Tiffany doq-tag necklace. They're only tike, 5135. lt was some other shit I had on in addition to the big DTP chain, l'tL rock the tittte dog-tag or whatever.

Some of 'em, it'lt make them wise up. One girt, after hanging out wjth me, she was tike, "Damn, now I see how I used to took."

If you settle down with somebody in the future, do you think you'd feel comfortable

telling them about your past? I got a couple things I need to get out of my system first, but l'd tike to settLe down with somebody eventuatty. I don't wanna be known as that otd nigga in the ctub. I'm fortunate that I don't look my age. I'm in my early thirties but I stit( get carded everywhere I go. But, if I find somebody that I tike that much, l'tL share lmy past]. That's how you know you've stumbled across somebody that's right for you, if you can taLk and have an adutt discussion without getting mad. I haven't found that one yet.

Are there any celebrities on Jaycee's hit list? Mya, but honestLy, I was told that I shoutdn't want her on my tist. This very famous Atlanta-based music producer was tike, "Nah, you don't wanna fuck with thatl" lguess the imptication was that she was a nutcase. I woutd hope it wasn't from a hygienic standpoint. Atso, the chick from Desper' ate Housewives, Eva. l've gotta get her. JC from N'sync is atready tappin'that, so apparentty she has a thing for Jaycees. Any more stories you want to tell before we go? You've qotta put this in the magazine, and it's not even invotving sex. We did a show in Atlanta, and the next stop was Memphis. A friend of mine wanted to come to Memphis, so I rode with her in her car. After I did soundcheck and everythinq we were on the tour bus, chiLtin'. We were just having a casuat conversation, me, her, and lity Boy from DTP 5o she gets up tike, "Where's y'alt bathroom at?" We pointed her in the right direction. Now, we know y'alt take a tong time in the bathroom, so we wasn't reatly trippin', but she was taking a reatty, reolly long time to come back outside. When she finalty opened the door it was the worst fuckin' smelt, ever. I was tike, oh God, this bitch took a shit on our tour bus. Not onty that, but she tried to lie about it. We have signs posted atLaround the bus that you can't shit in the bathroom. She was like, "Jason, I see the signs, I woutdn't do that to you." So, I'm tryin'to beLieve her. Shawnna atways has to use the bathroom to change before a show, so Shawnna came in the bathroom and was tike, "Oh, hett naw!" cause of the smetl. She was tike, "Jaycee, your bitch jost came in and took a shit on the tour busl" I'm tryin'to defend my friend. Shawnna was Like, "l hope you ain't fuckin' her, cause she smettin' real raunchy!" The girt was stitt maintaining the Lie, saying she ain't shit on the tour bus. The one way to find out for sure was the ask the bus driver, cause that nigga gotta change the tank every day. Anyway, I was the butt ofjokes for the tast three weeks of the tour because of this shit. She fett so uncomfortabte she didn't even bother comin' to the ctub. To this da, I haven't spoken to her. lt was confirmed the next day when we went to New Orteans. The bus driver was tike, "ln my 27 years of driving this bus, I ain't never seen nobody take a shit tike that before." (loughing) The sad part of this whote situation was that she was absotutely gorgeous! Probabty one of the best looking girts l've ever puLted. I just thought she would've known better than to do some shit tike that. - Julia Beverly, jb@ozonemag,com

[Trick Daddy and Trina's hit record] "Naan." What's the story behind that? Yeah, I was supposed to rap, but we was young back then and I was scared.

When you're at the strip club, how can you pick out the guys with money? I can tetl if a nigga is broke by his conversatjon, not by what he's wearing or how he tooks. The brokest-looking nigga can be the one with the most money, and the one that looks tike he has money can be broke. A nigga wjth money isn't aLways flashy. I can usuatty tett from the conversation.

What's an average day for Pinkey like? I get up earty, I have a fetish for getting my hair and naits done, so I do that at least once a week. I Like to took good. I onty work on the weekends, and during the week I spend time with my chitdren. How many children do you have? I have

three. Two boys 13 and

9

and one girtwho's 12.

Do they know what mommy does? \eah (loughin . You know how the teachers witt ask the kids what their mommies do? Wett, the nine year oLd totd his teacher that mommy works in a bathing suit (loughing). I totd him he better stop saying that, cause the HRS is gonna come get him and take him away, He totd me, "No, mommy, HRS onty comes and gets kids who's mommies don't take care of them."

What about the older children, how do they feel? The older ones don't trip orworry about it. I take care of them and that's atL that matters. I have the utmost respect for them. Do you have any plans to retire soon? I can't reatty tetl yoo that. As long as I Look good,

I'tt keep doing it.

Are you in a relationship? No, I just got out of one. Do you have any plans

to settle down?

lam ready to settte down. I'm just waiting to find that right person, Do you think you'll settle down with someone from l iami or do you think he'll comâ&#x201A;Ź from somewhere else? I can't reatty say where he'Lt come from. There's not many good guys teft in Miami. Ptus, it's hard because of my background. A Lot of quys are

intimidated by me. How and when did you start dancing? l've been dancing for six years. I started dancing as a dare. Some of my other friends were doing it and bragging about the money they were making, so I tried jt and the money was good. We hear that the strip clubs don't generate as much money as they used

to. Any comments on that? Njggas ain't getting money tike they used to. And, it's atl these other dancers comjng in the game settting for [ess. They're cheap hoes messing it up for everybody etse.

What makes Pinkey so special? l'm the shit. l'm that girt that Usher sings about, lt's my looks, my attitude, my body.

What's you. specialty? How do you get these men to talk about you the way they do? My special.ty is seduction. I know how to seduce a nigga. What's your relationship with Trina? We may not be together every day, but we have a very speciaL bond. She's a true friend. I wiLl atways be there for her and she't[ always be there for me. We're tr'ke sisters. I used to live with lTrina's famityl when I was younger, and her mom basicaLty raised me. she's the one who taught me and Trina the game at a young age. She atways totd us not to tet no nigga use you and to never settte for less.

Do you have any regret5? lf you could turn back the hands of time, would you still want to be a dancer? I wish that I wouldn't have become a dancer, but that's how it turned out. Now ljust have to be about my money. l'm making the best of the situation.

What is Pinkey's ideal man like? I want a man to tove me and treat me like a queen. I'm the type of person that loves hard, and I want someone who witl love me back just as hard, Someone who won't give up on me, cause l'm not a quitter and it takes a tot for me to give up on somebody. Ijust want to be toved, but untit I find the right person (sighingr... I don't know. I tried the retationship thing atready.

Disc two is hit or miss: on some tracks we are let down, onty to be blasted away by the next cut.

anthem. There are noticeabte differences between this atbum and previous Lit Jon & ESB atbums, however, such as the highpowered guest appearances. AtsoJ Jon actuauy rhymes instead of just yeLting, and the joints are more musicaL. LiL Jon shows his production range throughout the atbum lvjth cuts tike "Lovers & Friends," featuring Usher and Ludacris. Be prepared to hate this song in about two months, because that song is going to be a radio smash! Other gems are the Rick Rubin-produced ,,Stop Fuckin' With Me." That's a good t-hate-mywhack"ass'job song. Atso, Lit Jon capitatizes on thejokes DaveChappetle and Chris Rocks thrown at him by turning them into songs tike "Skeet Skeet Skeet," with DJ Ftexx. This is a straightup go-go song, so D.C. and Virginia shoutd get ready for that one. Now, is it just me, or is Li[ Jon becoming the officiaL career resurrector for legendary West Coast rappers? He djd it a few years ago With Too Short, and it seems as if lce

Cube is next in tine. lce Cube sounds like the nigga with an attitude again. Just tisten to ,,RoLt Catt" and possibty the best song on the atbum, "Grand Finate," which features T.t., Jadakiss, Bun B, Nas, and a key verse from lce Cube who murdered the original "Grand Finate" from The D.O.C.'S debut LP. There is so much more that could be said about this album because all bases are covered: rock, go-go, screwedJ West Coast. No stone is left untouched. This record wiLl be a monster. l'd bet money that there witl be at teast six singles off this atbum, and they'tt probabty stitt be in rotation a year from now Lj[ Jon said he wanted to make the down South version of The Chronic with his last atbum he came close with Kings ol Crur*J but with Crunk Juice he's officiaLty succeeded.

Of course, she stjtl brags about her good pussy and what she's done with it to get her hustte on, but the way it's approached is fresh. This record is for the hustter's girtfriends, the chicks getting money in the skrip ctub, and the alt-around hustLa type of girt. Tracks tike "Gangsta Bitch" and "Pussy Real cood" have been ptaying on the streets for a while now, but

they're stiLt bangin'. Songs like the Jaze phaassisted r'Break You Off" and "Pretty," where Jacki-O shows off her vocal abitities (yes, she's singing) are ready-made for heavy radio rotation. On the flip side, you've got tracks tike "Champion," featuring Trick Daddy, which is )qx-rated.

The more I get into the disc, the more I get into their Muzik! With exception of the first few tracks on the first disc, it's pretty sotid. The "Mind Over Matter" skit brings us to "l Don't Mind," where 212 and N-Sane btast an

ture of good and

materiat. Cheeks drops the hottest verse of the atbum on the intro, so you're thinkjng you're going to get more of that Legal

that Mr. Cheeks and the LB Fam have been giving us for the past decade. Unfortunatety, the rest of the atbum doesn't live up to the intro. pete Rock produces two joints, going one for two with the nice summer joint "Atl I Know" and the banger "Keep it Movin"'which is hampered by Cheeks' uninspiring hook. For that ride to the corner store, Cheek provides us with two nice crujsing track: "Att Nite Long" and "Tu.n it Up.', Cheeks brings Drug

some new fam

to the table with "Btindfotd,"


featuring the Garcia Brothers, Stum, and Bump Johnson. Struck of the Garcia Brothers ends up steating the show. On the Lead singte, "lt's Atright," Truth Hurts shows up on the hook and sings backup white Cheeks'bouncy flow marries the beat perfectty. Cheeks has never been known as a hard-core tyricist, but his voice has the abitity to grab your attention and he demonstrates this here, The atbum ends with the undesirable remix of "What's Happenin"' as weLl as the itt-fated heartfett attempt "LB FamiLy," which wittfail to grab the attention of most Ladies and Ghettomen. The atbum has a few hightights but uttimatety feels unfinished. - ADG, adg@tmail.com

years ago, the wu-Tang Clan stormed into the New York hip-hop scene

with the

cLassic singte retease "Protect Ya Neck / Method Man" fottowed by "C.R.E.A.M. / Da Mystery of Chessboxin'." Soon, their aLbum Enter the 36 Chambers was reteased. Being a kid who tived just over the Verazano Bridge who's sister did promotions for Wu-Tang might have made the swarm a littte bit more fierce personatly, but tistening to the reteases is confirmation that the feeting I fett must have been fett by hundreds of thousands of hip-hop fanatics, The first retease, Legend, is nothing but sixteen tracks of pure heat. lt inctudes Method lan's solo banger, lnspectah Deck's verse on "Triumph," and the Shaolin rendition of Run-DMC's ctassic "Sucker MCs." I was a littte disappointed to see the exctusion of "Winter Warz " and the incLusion of "Shaotin Wortdwide" and "Diesel." The tatter CD, from Sanctuary Records, is a LIVE release which goes a bit further, giving us the real grime from "Teaft" to "lncarcerated Scarfaces." Live reLeases are more for the diehard fan than anyone else, but it sounds like anyone who was on hand for this Juty 17th show got a chance to see the originat Wu shine tike they haven't shone in years. - ADG, adg@tmail.com JADE FOXX

ing out of Chjcago,

it wasn't

long before another Mndy City native woutd step into the spottight. Thefirst trackon the atbum/mixtape is the attention-getting "Overnight Cetebrity" remix. Camron, 50 Cent, and Twista verses are alt used to give the ittusion of a cotlaboration, but it's just a cut-and-paste job with Bump adding a fitter verse. On "Drama," both Bump J and the secret weapon sty Polaroid do a pretty damn good job of hotding down the Goon squad, but Bump takes the crown with bars [ike, "Niggas think I fett off, no no / If ever Bump fatts he's gon'come back like a yoyo / My flow's toco, your shit is so-so / Yo bro, my money tong tike Rebecca Lobo." Next, "G-Thang 2004" is a Snoop track where Bump J shows some

real tyrjcism with vivid simites, The true gem of this atbum is the remake of Jay-Z's "What More Can lSay," with its jmaginative metaphors. Bump touches on the subject of studio gangstas, spitting, "These rappers teave home, go to the studio and turn into Nino / Tatking the streets like it's

part of their lingo / Fine, they'tl find you in the water like Nemo." The DVD s reptay vatue is mini. mat, but a good education on the Goon Squad and Bump J. - ADG, ADG@tmall.com SEAN JAY

great scene where mate adutt star WesLey

Lil Jon promises that this DVD wit( contain a Lot of pussy, a55, and titties, and he does not disappoint. The onty reason I'd say this is soft-core erotica is because in alL the mate and femate copulation scenes, there are no views of the actuat penetratjon. That's one of the main things that makes this DVD different; it's focused more on the foreptay than the wham-bamm of a raw porno. Next, the Attanta-based group takes you o; a tour of two of Attanta's finest strip ctubs, tike the Btue Ftame. lnside you see what an officiatAttanta "onion" is att about. However, since it's an adutt ctub and the tighting has to be kept low, there are some bad shots of the most important parts of the femate anatomy. The next ctub is the Trapeze Swinger's CLub, a ctub where you can go swap partners, partake in orgies, or simply watch. Ljt Jon takes you on a tour throughout the ctub which witt mak6 you wish you were there. The casting for this DVD was weLt done; lots of beautifut tadies. l'd recommend it for anyone who's tired of the same hardcore porn and tooking for something with more of that sensitive caressing and rote'ptaying. The behind-the"scenes footage couLd be another DVD jn itsetf; you get to see Big-Sam do his Etvis impersonation as wetl as modeLs from the sex shows in Vegas. The last element to any good sex DVD is to have some go6d music, anl the soundtrack, Produced by Lit Jon, has alI his bangers on jt. So do your partner a favor and pick this one up. lt shoutd definitety be inlour sex cottection. - Malik Abdul, malik@ozonemag.com

give views of mainLy penetration shots and not many faciaL shots. Just like the company's name, they have att the angtes. Lots of wide-angte shots, lots of one-on-one sex, and of course, tots of switching partners, The female actresses reatty are Brazitian, and the video was actuatty shot in BraziL. They don't speak any Engtish, buiit seemed tjke they were enjoying the att-American mate cast. They are att wett-versed in the tanguage of sex, with tots of moanjng and faciat exfressions. This DVD has two fult'Length scenes, each with five mates and eight beautifut, sexy Brazitian women with big round asses. There's ptenty of up-cLose scenes and the switchjng isn't quick, so if there is one or two actresses you Like, you can-watch her and stiLt see what the others are dojng. Overall, if you're a porn Lover I woutd highly recommend this DVD. You can pick it up on thejr website www.evasiveangles.com or just get it from the Locat boottegger tike I did. - i,talik Abdul, malikc,ozonemag.com

ESPN has a show cal.ted Dream Job, where contestants compete to be the next Sportscenter host. Donatd Trump has The Apprentice, and Dattas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has The Benefactor. At[ these shows have one thing in common: someone etse came up with the concept, and the wjnner is chosen by the show executives. But here we have three young btack men who decided to create their own dream job playing video games. They caLt themsetves the Konsole Kingz.

Whether it's Ptaystation, X-Box, or Gamecube, these guys put[ no punches when jt comes to rating video games. All the games are

rated for their qamepLay and

graphics, and anatyzed

if

the game is worth buying or even pLaying. The three hosts go back and forth with their ratings, so it's very much tike Sisket & Ebert. They atso Let consumers send them games to rate. With the Kjngz, you have three different opinions to hetp you decide if you're going to purchase a game. One game they att seem to agree on is Sou[ Catiber 2, for X-Box and Ptaystatjon 2, which is rated the "best video fighting" game ever.

the most interesting aspects of this DVD is that the Konsote Kingz have celebrity gamers ptaying and One of

being interviewed at the same time. lt's a great interaction between cetebrities and their fans. A few celebs catted out Davjd Banner on this DVD; it seems that he's a real gamer and has beaten a tot of feltow cetebs. But as professional gamers, the Kingz atways prevait. lhey give you pojnters about online gaming, lf you're a video game enthusiast, the Konsote Kingz DVD shoutd definitety be in your video game coLlection.
