Bonehead Kanye West apologize for Slave Comment

Kanye West finally apologized for a comment he made earlier this summer saying, "Sounds like a choice."   During a radio interview the 41 year old rapper become emotional while speaking on the subject.  West, "I don't know if I properly apologized for how that slave comment made people feel," he continued, "I want to take this moment right now to say that I'm sorry for hurting, I'm sorry for the one-two effect of the MAGA hat into the slave comment."

West blamed his comments on his newly diagnosed mental illness and having an entourage that didn’t have his best interest in mind.  But, in my opinion, it was a boneheaded comment and he meant it.  You know they say, a drunk man speaks a sober mind.  Would that be the same for a Bi-polar man too?

Royalty in the hip hop community of the other coast has been at odds since Birdman and Lil Wayne found themselves on opposite sides of the table in court. Wayne sued the man whom he referred to as his daddy for years for a whopping $51 million in royalties and short payments.

The two were seen out on the town in Miami in what appeared to be a reconciliation, but new reports suggest the two men simply abstained from discussing business during the casual hookup.

In addition to the lost loot, Weezy is seeking to get out of his current contract with Cash Money Records. This request is something that has not been considered by Brian and Slim Williams, and is likely not going to happen anytime soon. Wayne is also accusing to duo of sandbagging the release of the Carter V.
