In a recent column for the Miami New Times, Luke writes that Wiz violated an unwritten law by dating another rapper’s ex saying the Pittsburg MC “broke the bro code” when he started dating Kanye West’s old flame.
He also mentioned Soulja Boy (Diamond) and Memphitz (Toya Carter) as other rappers who crossed the line.
Skywalker wrote that the bond between MC’s is supposed to be different than those of other celebrities.
“Rappers aren’t like celebrity football and basketball players, who pass around exes like mustard,” Luke wrote.
In the end Luke blamed why Wiz would fall for the “spotlight hogging” Amber Rose on a generational gap in standards.
“Wiz Khalifa, like some members of his generation, has gotten soft,” wrote Luke. “They are losing their focus. They can’t spot a triflin’ woman in the room to save their lives.”
Check out Uncle Luke’s rant in its entirety below.
“Wiz Khalifa needs to have his head examined. The boy behind the hit “Black & Yellow” has lost his mind over a woman interested only in hogging his spotlight. For months, Wiz has been dating former stripper Amber Rose, whose claim to fame is that her ex-boyfriend is Kanye West. Khalifa even tattooed the girl’s name on his hand. Now he’s beefing with Kanye because West dissed Amber at Coachella this past April and then, just recently, at the Essence Festival in New Orleans.
But Wiz Khalifa broke a cardinal rule in the rap game. You don’t date another rapper’s ex-girlfriend.
He is not alone. In Atlanta, Soulja Boy recently snatched Lil Scrappy’s girl.
Lil Wayne’s ex Toya Carter tied the knot with some rapper named Memphitz earlier this year.
They broke the bro code. See, when a rapper makes a commitment to one girl, he takes the relationship seriously. Rappers aren’t like celebrity football and basketball players, who pass around exes like mustard. You got Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chad Ochocinco dating Evelyn Losada, who was engaged to former Miami Heat forward Antoine Walker. Hell, some of these motherf*ckers don’t even wait for a breakup.
Television star Eva Longoria caught her man, San Antonio Spurs point guard Tony Parker, banging his teammate Brent Barry’s wife. Orlando Magic star Gilbert Arenas dumped his fiancée and baby mama Laura Govan after he caught her doing the dirty with Shaquille O’Neal. That is some incestuous shit. Despite the stereotypes, you rarely saw this kind of thing in hip-hop.
We rappers have always prided ourselves on not dating someone else’s ex-girlfriends or ex-wives. This will come as a shock to some people, but if we have a relationship, it’s with just one woman. Look at Jay-Z. He’s been committed to Beyoncé for some time. Will Smith, Run-D.M.C., Ice Cube, Ice-T, and I are other examples of loyal, dedicated husbands in hip-hop.
Wiz Khalifa, like some members of his generation, has gotten soft. They are losing their focus. They can’t spot a triflin’ woman in the room to save their lives.”
Some new drama is brewing on VH1′s “Basketball Wives” this week, this time between Evelyn Lozada and Jennifer Williams. Evelyn received a phone call from a friend in Cleveland who said Jennifer was on the radio talking negative about her and Chad’s relationship. A preview of Evelyn confronting Jennifer about the interview was shown and things seem to have gotten a bit heated. The interview Evelyn is mad about is from Radio One’s Z107.9 Bijou Star.
Foxy Brown may have just cleared of charges in her ‘mooning’ case, but she isnt going to let what she feels was a railroading by the powers that be go unnoticed.
The rapper and her attorney Salvatore Strazzullo plan to sue the city of New York, the New York Police Department and the District Attorney’s for “malicious prosecution.”
Tuesday (July 12) Fox Boog was cleared of charges that she mooned her neighbor Arlene Raymond in July 2010, thus violating her a order of protection against her obtained by her neighbor. Raymond refused to testify in court leaving the judge to clear Foxy of all charges.
“Its rooted in jealousy, it’s a [scary] thing like borderline obsession,” said Foxy, who denied the accusations. “Someone wants to be you and have the life I worked very hard for.”
Brown and her council were confident they could prove the defendant was lying had the case gone to trial telling the New York Daily News that Foxy’s penchant to not wear undergarments would have been the deciding factor in the case.
“Our big ace in the hold is she (Brown) wasn’t wearing any underwear,” Strazzulo told the Daily News.
Her accuser reported that she was exposed to Foxy’s underwear clad buttocks during an altercation last summer.
