44 PIMP JUICE

Many hip-hop fans outside od the south don’t know what to make of O J Da Juiceman. Is he an innovator or n aggravator? One thing is for certain, though–the atlanta trapper is a survivor.

46 EMPIRE STATE OF MIND

Just when you thought Snoop Dogg had done it all, the California icon reinvents himself yet again, this time as majot-label excutive. Oh, and he has a killer new album, too. Enter the always-entertaining world of the Doggfather.

76 THE ONE HUN’ED

For those cyber junkies who stick to the same two or three blogs, its time to expand your online minds. After weeks of dot-com reserach and WWW overload, HH presents the Best 100 Hip-Hop Web Sites.

2009 will forever be remembered as the year of the Internet Rap Star–a new, unconventional breed of hip-hop celebrity. However, one make-or-break question remains: Does Web fame actully count?

88 STILL D.R.E.

In November 2004, the Bay Area lost a true musical pioneer, Mac Dre. Five years after his murder, HH shows love to arguably the West Coast’s most unsung urban legend.

Cover Story 44 WAR GAMES

The Before I Self Destruct album title? His hates and countless rapper-enemies are praying for its reality. Sadly fro them, 50 Cent continues to prove, through lucrative business and hit records, he’s nowhere near his breaking point.

90 AFTER THE LAUGHTER

Memories of the most irreverent Ol’ Dirty Bastard are full of laughs, quirks and controversy. Yet, for one writer who witnessed ODB’s rise and fall firsthand, the nostalgia is bittersweet.

Williams' domination of the sport came to an abrupt end in mid-2003 when she had surgery to repair a partial tear in a knee tendon.[6] Upon her return to the sport in 2004, her results were noticeably less c

but a string of injuries then limited her to competing in just 13 events in the two years that followed,inning w

July 2006, leading to widespread speculation that she had passed her peak.[7] Williams, however, eventually won another Grand Slam title at the Australian Open in 2007, despite being ranked World Number 81 at the time. Williams returned to the top ten later that year and has since competed in every Grand Slam event.

You see if you show a strong or any reaction to this she would feel that she mentally won and she would instantly lose all value for you because you fell into her trap. Never let these things get to you, if such a thing happen just get yourself busy with other things instead of concentrating on what she is doing. Make it seem as if you don't give a damn and she is not the only fish in the pond.


Playing too hard to get- This is another game a lot of women play out there. You see she might end up playing a bit too hard to get just to test and see how insecure you are about yourself and how bad do you want her. What happen in such cases is that the guy starts trying to impress the girl in all possible ways and the more you try to please her the harder she acts. In this case you must never respond to her and act cold emotionally. When you don't show much reaction she starts to think that it's not working on you and she starts trying too hard to get you now.

With her close-cropped blonde hair and incredible figure, Amber Rose is striking by anyone's standards. But last night she took her look to new extremes in a silver Pam Hogg catsuit with plunging neckline.

The model stole the limelight from boyfriend Kanye West as they appeared together at the Persona magazine launch party in New York.

NOT QUITE WH AT YOU WERE THINKING by Dan Le Batard Kimbo Slice is a very scary guy. He is also a thoughtful friend, loving dad and budding entrepreneur. As MMA's date with mainstream destiny nears, it's time to reappraise the ultimate YouTube legend.


LET'S REWIND TO THE MOST DESPERATE TIM E in the desperate life of a desperate man. Before he traveled by stretch Navigator limo and private jet. Before rap stars requested his menace in their videos. Before Randy Moss approached him like an awestruck teen. Or Jason T aylor wanted the best seats to watch him fight. Or Lamar Odom said, "Manny Ramirez was bor n to swing a bat. Peyton Manning was bor n to throw a football. And Kimbo Slice was bor n to kick ass." Y ou know, before he made that clichéd climb from strip-club bouncer to por n bodyguard to street-brawling Inter net legend to broadcast-TV star , ho-hum . Kimbo Slice—real name Kevin Ferguson—was homeless 14 years ago. He lived out of a green, 1987 Pathfinder that had four mismatched tires. He taped plastic bags to the shattered window to keep most of the rain out. He bathed in the ocean and pools and went to the bathroom wherever he could. He was too proud to live with his mother but not too proud to wash the cars of s trangers when he got turned down for menial jobs. And that mind of his—the one that has surprised the CBS suits trying to morph him into an MMA star, that convinced them to sign him for MMA's network debut on May 31 — drowned in shame. It hadn't always been so. Two years earlier, in 1992, Ferguson had been a middle linebacker at Miami's Palmetto High with the skill to think college ball. But then Hurricane Andrew blew through South Florida, wrecking Ferguson's home and hopes. Palmetto's season was shortened, and Ferguson's scholarships disappeared. He tried college at Bethune-Cookman but flunked out. By early 1994, he was out on the street. And that time makes the 6'2", 240-pound, 34-year-old badass cry to this day, just thinking about living and dying in the stink of that damn truck.

Violence wasn't the answer. Not yet. It would, of course, later be his salvation, and America's love of it would be bigger even than his own. He has always tried to be honorable about administering it, though. Kimbo may have street cred that makes Allen Iverson look like a Tibetan monk, but it was built upon principles. Friends say he has never been a bully, but he likes little else more than fighting them. His first videotaped street fight—a 2003 scrap that traveled from a Miami backyard to the world, the one in which he dropped his fists and kept advancing after letting the sculpted beast across from him take shots at his face, the one that earned him $3,000 for a knockout—was against a dude who'd been terrorizing the neighborhood with crime and fear. (Ferguson himself has never been arrested for a violent act. His one blotter incident came in 2002, when he was charged with carrying a concealed weapon and an open container; the weapons charge was dropped.) A buddy put the fight up on a porn site and immediately got two million hits, which handed Ferguson a new kind of famous with the YouTube generation. And with those clicks, Kevin Ferguson began his transformation into Kimbo Slice, merging the "Kimbo" he'd been called since he was a kid in the Bahamas with the "Slice" tag that Internet fans had slapped on him and Kimbo had deemed appropriately badass.

For all the fistfighting Ferguson/Slice has done, in the alleys of Miami's darkest corners and now in front of shining lights, Mano a mano, Kimbo fought to test himself and to make that homeless month represents the most scared he has money. It was human cockfighting; the brawls drew crowds ever been. Which is saying something. This is a man, mind and bets, and Kimbo put up as much as $5,000 for any taker you, who still wears the scars from Hurricane Andrew on who could match his stake and beat him. His mother didn't his body, like slashes on a gladiator's shield. He hid under a mattress that night as debris pelted him and his mother's approve but went to one of the fights anyway and ended up screaming throughout. "Terrified," she recalls herself being. home crumbled. But at least he had a mattress then. And But earlier this month, she did a CBS Mother's Day commercial no six kids and their two moms to feed or fail. While in that with Kimbo. Back then, there was no packaging.

Maybe the tiny stage was too confining. (“This is the smallest show we ever did,” Drake’s D.J. said, a roundabout boast.) Maybe some of his songs — “Successful,” “Closer to My Dreams” — were too moody. Or maybe the crowd was too resistant, especially when Drake sang: “Brand New,” a note of self-doubt addressed to a lover, i s one of his finest, but here it was stilted, an obstacle to be moved around.


A Rapper With Celebrity but No Label If there was a time in hip-hop before Drake, it’s tough to remember. On rap Web sites, which abhor a vacuum, seemingly every move he’s made in recent months has been captured and archived in what has amounted to, essentially, a Drake lifecast: video footage and photographs of concerts, audio clips of radio interviews, endless personal and professional gossip and, oh, new songs to go with the two, “Best I Ever Had” and “Every Girl,” that have already become hits, before this Toronto rapper has even . signed a recording contract. A savior was being built, one blog post at a time It was under these klieg lights that Drake — in fact, a mortal — appeared at S.O.B.’s on Tuesday, in his first proper New York performance since his anointing by acclamation. “My reality is brighter than your dreams are,” he rapped on his introductory number, “Congratulations,” the first track from his hungrily received “So Far Gone” mixtape from earlier this year. “I got your dream girl riding in your dream car/And the visual is stunning./I hope they document what I’m becoming.” Documentation was not a problem at this show, played to a thick crowd of label executives, journalists, bloggers, radio personalities, rappers and at least a handful of paying fans, who were considerate enough to bring cameras. How the show would be processed was as important as how it would be performed. But embracing the new, it turns out, isn’t that different from embracing the familiar. Drake, 22, is an extremely adept student, pairing the whimsical, intricate rhymes of Lil Wayne with the melodic gifts and self-flagellation of Kanye West. He’s a braggart and a skeptic, a stud and a nerd. And a star, almost. That Drake couldn’t carry the burden placed upon him on Tuesday night was almost a given. Wearing a striped Commes des Garçons shirt and red Air Jordans, he dressed the part, but he never fully eased into it. At moments he seemed uncertain, far more so than in videos of recent shows elsewhere. When he was joined by the veteran Bun B on “Uptown,” he appeared small by comparison.

It's a cold November night in Pomona, California, and Snoop Dogg's whole world has come to a virtual standstill because his favorite team, the Steelers, is just days away from the Super Bowl. He's put everything on hold -- he could and probably should be out touring to promote his new album, Tha Blue Carpet Treatment -but nothing matters like the Steelers and winning that Super Bowl. "I had to tell management to leave me alone, record label leave me alone," he says, zipping down a desolate highway in his dark-blue Porsche Carrera, carefully rolling a blunt with both hands as he steers with his knees. "I don't wanna do no records, I don't wanna do no movies, I don't wanna do shit but football. Until I win this Super Bowl, the buck stops here. My business people always say it's a loss, because when I'm in football mode I don't go out and make money, but when I'm into these kids, it ain't about makin' money, it's about makin' they dreams come true on some real shit." Snoop is head coach of the Pomona Steelers, part of the Snoop Youth Football League, a cherub-faced gang of nine- and ten-year-olds that includes his middle child, Cordell, and Nate Dogg's son Nigel. The league, now in its second season, has ten teams and 2,000 players, and Snoop is at every Steelers game and nearly every practice. The team works out from 6 to 8 p.m. on a dusty baseball field behind a church, and on this Thursday night, Snoop wears a black Steelers jacket and a yellow T-shirt, with a whistle around his neck. He huddles with the boys after each play, and as they rumble in from all parts of the field, few of them taller than five feet, their spindly legs hiding behind thigh pads, they seem to all yell at him at once. "Coach Snoop, lemme get the ball this time!" "Coach Snoop, can you believe I wore these pants last year?" "Coach Snoop, I'm gonna watch Ice Age after practice!" "Good job," he says, patting one boy on the helmet. "Way to find that inside hole." He leans over from the waist to be closer to them and calls the play. "We goin' double tight left, full house left. G-Man, you gon' be the quarterback." The boys know he's a star, but they love him because they know he cares about them. Aaron, a kid he coached last season, says, "He make it fun. Other coaches just want to win. He want to win, but he want you to have fun at the same time." Snoop, government name Calvin Broadus, 35, loves these boys so much that when they lose, he's crushed."One time last year we lost and I cried," he says. "I mean, I really cried at the end of the game, tears in my eyes. I was that hurt." He loves them so much he even quit smoking weed for them. For a little while. It was a few years ago, when he first started coaching youth football in a predominantly white league in Orange County. want to become part of their lives, if they're not. It's a beautiful thing."
