The stellar new tracks are "Goin' In" (featuring Flo Rida) and "Dance Again" (featuring Pitbull). "Dance Again" has sold more than 1.4 million copies worldwide since its March 2012 debut, and reached #1 on the Billboard Dance/Club Play Chart.

Lil Wayne says he feels 'unwanted' at Okla. Arena PDF Print E-mail
Written by By RYAN PEARSON | Associated Press

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Lil Wayne said that after a recent NBA playoffs ticket dispute he felt unwelcome and "unwanted" at the Oklahoma City arena and isn't planning to return.

The rapper said two Thunder players — Kevin Durant and James Harden — had reached out to offer him tickets to Saturday's fourth game of the Western Conference Finals.

"That's not the point, though," he told The Associated Press in an interview Friday night. "It's the players stepping up but of course the players aren't white. I don't want to be sitting there on behalf of you and I'm sitting next to a (person) that's like 'I don't want this (guy) sitting next to me.' (Forget) you ... I'm in Forbes," he said, laughing.

Lil Wayne claimed in a tweet Thursday night that he had been "denied by the team to be in their arena." The team responded by saying the seats he wanted were already taken.

But the Grammy-winning rapper, appearing at a Macy's store in Los Angeles to promote his Trukfit clothing line, described a more complicated scenario.

He said he typically procures tickets for such games "from this guy named Mike." Lil Wayne said Mike had requested special security, parking and entrance for the rapper, but Mike said the team responded that they would only sell the seats for Mike's personal use.

Lil Wayne said a manager had advised him not to return to the city's arena for sports events or concerts, but "I never say never."

He said he felt welcome at other arenas including Miami, and likes being able to energize players — many of whom are fans of his music — on their home court.

"That's like me going on stage and ... seeing LeBron (James) in the crowd with his hand up. I'm going to perform a little bit harder," he said.

But in Oklahoma, he said that while "the players want me there, I don't want to feel — I'm going to still feel unwanted."

"Of course, when someone tells Lil Wayne, 'No,' that he can't come in, 'We're sold out,' you feel a certain way. Unfortunately, it had to go down like that," said Durant, the three-time NBA scoring champion.

"We'd have loved to have him here in Oklahoma City. We'd have welcomed him with open arms. Hopefully, we get past that and next time he can come and enjoy a game."

A team spokesman has said Lil Wayne's representatives insisted that he sit in the front row, and none of those seats were available. Oklahoma City sold out every home game during the regular season and playoffs.

"It was just a misunderstanding. We were sold out of tickets, I heard, and we didn't come through," Durant said. "He knows a few of us on the team and he knows it's nothing like that. We offered him tickets to tonight but he had to do something. He's a superstar in his own right, so he can't just pick up and go to a game.

"He had something to do, but I'm sure if his schedule was free, he would have came tonight. We're still inviting him to games — maybe not this year. Next year or whatever."

Tupac Father of a Generation…. PDF Print E-mail

As we celebrate the 41st birthday of one of Hip Hops biggest Icons, I am humbled at the thought of all the lives he touched during his time here. I began to reflect on how he personally effected my life as a teenager and how I might not have become the man I am today without his teachings. I feel it is important to not only remember the talent of the man but to also reflect on his character and many positive attributes. This week marks the ninth time in my life that I will be honored or recognized for being a father, which always challenges me to think of traits of a good father. Having not grown up in a home with a father figure, Tupac words through song were often the only kind of acknowledgement of the struggles I saw and experienced.

Songs like (Keep Ya Head Up) spoke directly to me, because at times I felt no one cared so why should I. When I heard (Only God Can Judge Me) it helped me see clearly that I am somebody and no one had the power to take that away from me. Tupac knew and understood that there were millions of kids just like me looking for parental guidance and took it upon himself to feel that void. The sacrifices he made with regard to his own safety to deliver the message were definitely traits I would associate with a good father. Speaking from experience there is no risk that is too great or danger I wouldn’t face to protect my children and help them navigate through this toxic world. Tupac was truly a visionary and just as a father figure his hopes of a brighter future were always visible.

As a young boy I was told to always judge a person by their actions, so what I admire the most about Tupac is that his words matched his actions. When I heard (Me against the World) I thought this was more than an Album or a song, it was truly a reflection of the life he was living. In fact it wasn’t until I heard him say those words that I realized why I felt so lonely and abandoned. Like a father Tupac gave me comfort in knowing that someone was out fighting on my behalf. What made his star ever more mesmerizing is the fact he didn’t fit into the status quo. He was a smart black man; articulate and understood the significance of being the rose that grew from concrete against all odds. So as I prepare to enjoy another humbling father’s day, it would be selfish of me not to acknowledge the impact Tupac had on my life how I think and believe. I am forever grateful and humbled and only wish his legacy continues to live on until the end of time.

Happy Birthday Tupac!!!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         comments: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Hubbub over Diddy's son is a joke PDF Print E-mail
Written by Pete Fiutak   
Saturday, 02 June 2012 19:56

As is the case with many controversies in our hypermedia world that’s always looking for the next item to throw into the news grinder for the day, it took just one misguided whine to set the wheels in motion.

One poor student at UCLA found the right dopey ears to bother the right dopey online people to create a minor dopey debate designed to get the dopey among us all riled up for the next 24 hours.

Apparently it didn’t sit right with some that cornerback prospect Justin Combs was offered a full-ride scholarship to UCLA.

Who’s Justin Combs? He’s the son of rapper/producer/actor P. Diddy, the Willie Beamen wanna-be who allegedly didn’t get the part of the quarterback in the movie 'Any Given Sunday' because of an uncoachable throwing motion. To you, and on the Letter of Intent, that’s Sean Combs, who’s worth about a half a billion dollars and could easily afford the four years of tuition.

That Justin is going going, back back, to Cali Cali and getting a free ride is totally and completely within the norm of college recruiting. Students get into snooty colleges all the time because they’re legacies or have superpower one-percenter parents who can throw out their pocket change and have a library built. And yeah, when it comes to recruiting and bringing a spotlight to UCLA football, of course it’s an advantage to have Diddy’s kid there. USC has Snoop Dogg. Miami had Luke Campbell. UCLA has Vitamin Water.

Justin Combs is a football player and he earned a scholarship. Lots of parents of scholarship football players can afford the tuition — no one beefed when Barry Sanders Jr. got a ride to Stanford this February. On publicity as well as within the rules of the game it is a good play for the Bruins. Combs is smart and is considered to be a legitimate recruit. He is ranked as a two-star cornerback, No. 133 nationally at his position, by Scout.com. Three other players in the UCLA 2012 commit class hold two-star rankings as well.

So of course it was a smart move for UCLA, and the scholarship has already paid for itself in publicity just by the hullaballoo that came from the offer.

The problem is the misguided attitude of those who find it wrong that Combs, or any football player, gets a scholarship while so many students are getting hosed by loan-sharked student debts and outrageous tuition hikes. Football programs aren't the problem, and Combs getting a scholarship certainly isn't an issue. People are talking about Combs and his free rides. Few talk about the water polo and golf teams.

 

Just because the smaller-ticket sports exist doesn't mean the public actually cares enough to turn them into revenue generators.

Monster football programs often eat what they kill in terms of revenue, but the reason athletic departments end up so far into the red is because the revenue sports have to save the non-revenue sports.

It’s not politically incorrect to point out that non-revenue sports are a drain. Most people know someone who was only able to get through college because they could run fast or spike a ball, but that doesn’t mean what they do is any more or less important to the fabric of the university than someone majoring in something like Advanced Dancing.

The argument against Justin Combs is that he’s taking a scholarship away from another football player, not from some other athlete, and that might hurt the revenue-producing sport that could possibly raise more dough if it could use that scholarship on another quality player. If you want to complain, ask why someone deserves a scholarship for playing a non-revenue sport rather than for being fantastic at violin or physics, and be glad that the football and basketball players aren't getting paid straight cash to play, like some think they should.

Now, did Biggie have a son who could clog up the middle of a line? UCLA could really use that.
