- Big Pun's wife responded to Fat Joe's allegations, saying "I could have joined with [Fat Joe's] enemies and destroyed him...he said in interviews that I'm extorting him, he doesn't know what extortion is, I coulda been extorted him..." Oh, OK. [Nahright]

- Ed Lover had a pretty deep question for Fabolous recently: "Do you feel like you too lyrical for what's goin' on in hip hop today?" No, uh, wait, is that a trick question? [Youtube]

- Ghostface must have an album coming out or something; he's dropping darts and witticisms all over the place these days: "This album made me quit smokin' weed. I was in the f----- studio, B, I spent a lot of money man, I was in Florida for like 18 f----- months, in the studio, not goin' to the f----- studio. Everytime I smoked, Joe, I forget everything, you know what I mean...I spent so much money in there. Def Jam knew, from that point on, they knew about me, and that money situation and s---. They got money jokes and all that s---. I couldn't get it together and s---." [Missinfo]

- A Miami police officer broke down the Brisco robbery case for us: "They took a little bit more off the top then expected...This robbery was off the chain...For a rapper to have his bling stolen, they might have well stolen that man's heart." [WSHH]

- Kanye West performed @ the G-Shock event in NYC yesterday, kicking a little off-the-top, spoken word-ish missive about the media, paparazzi, Y2K, OJ, MJ, Tyson, faked moon landings, water bottle conspiracies and several other topics we can totally relate to. "If you believe they brought a man on the moon/If you believe Christ is comin back soon/if you believe when 2000 drops/That we so f----- stupid that the f----- computer's about to stop/And everybody who bought f----- waterbottles is feelin' dumb as s---/Hey come and get the waterbottles because America teaches fear/And we got it so you can get all your water bottles here..." Poetry. [Youtube]
