Oct 7 - Cam'ron Calls Out President Carter, The Source Slams G-Unit... Again, Lil' Wa

Cam'ron Calls Out President Carter, The Source Slams G-Unit... Again, Lil' Wayne Fans M.I.A., U.S. Troops Want To Free Pimp C
Friday - October 7, 2005 by Carl Chery

In this week's Pulse Report, the streets are buzzing about Cam'Ron baiting Jay-Z to "say my name," The Source's latest G-Unit attack, Lil Wayne's "no-show," and the international "Free Pimp C" movement.

1. Cam wants it with Hov. k*lla Cam apparently isn't sweating being a potential target in Jay-Z's upcoming "I Declare War" concert. Earlier this week, Cam stopped by "Rap City" while Dame Dash was on hand to promote his new show, BET's Ultimate Hustler. After Cam briefly boasted about the battery-operated traffic light charm on his platinum chain, host J-Nicks asked Cam if he expected to be targeted during the Jay-Z/Power 105 "I Declare War" show in NYC later this month. "You know what it is with me. Say my name I can't wait. I'mma hit it. We live for that," Cam answered before Dash called out Nicks for instigating. "The way I do is this man, say my name. I don't got beef with nobody till they say my name. Like I had beef, an incident with Nas. He said my name for no reason -- shut down records... over. I retire people when you say my name. Finish it, say it."

Speculation has already been spreading that Jay may target Fat Joe, 50 Cent, and even The Game during the October 27th concert in which he has declared war on emcees who've been talking greasy about him. One rumor even says that Hov will show video footage of Chuck Taylor as a male stripper performing for men. .

2. The Source turns on G-Unit. Though the self-proclaimed "Hip-Hop bible" has been bashing the Shady/Aftermath/G-Unit camp in the past two years, word is the publication was supposed to do a positive piece on G-Unit for its November cover story. During a brief phone interview on New York radio station Power 105.1's Star and Bucwild morning show, an Interscope executive confirmed that The Source attempted to interview G-Unit. However, has learned the piece turned into a G-Unot article when "things didn't work out." That said, the entire G-Unit camp is said to be featured on the magazine's November cover against their wishes.

3. Weezie show cancelled. Lil Wayne's newfound swagger, his countless guest appearances and Jay-Z's stamp of approval apparently aren't enough to draw concert-goers to one of his shows. According to "Dolla Dave" Belton, who was helping Big Dis Entertainment promoter organize the show, a Weezie concert at Flint, Michigan's Perani Arena was cancelled because not enough tickets were sold. Tickets for the show ranged between $25 and $30. Amanda Dallaire, Perani Arena's box office manager, is giving refunds at the point of purchase.

4. Teriyaki Boyz to serve. Jay-Z is apparently learning to speak japanese with his latest signing, The Teriyaki Boyz, a group of Asian rappers signed to Def Jam Records. The rap quartet of Ilmari, Ryo-Z, Wise and Verbal, helmed by DJ/producer/A Bathing Ape honcho Nigo, are slated to release their debut album, Beef or Chicken (Def Jam), on November 16th. The high-profile album project features production by DJ Premier, Just Blaze, The Neptunes, Dan the Automator, DJ Shadow, Mark Ronson and Ad Rock of Beastie Boys.

5. Unreleased The Roots/Project Pat track leaks. When Phrenology dropped in 2002, many Roots fans wondered what happened to the much-discussed song with Project Pat. Now, three years later, the song has leaked onto the internet. "Should I" features an unusually raunchy Black Thought recounting stories of "this chicken Sharmaine/the prettiest thing/she got started open hearted steady giving me brains/suckin my d*ck up on planes, in the truck on the train/she had the swallow game tight." Meanwhile, Project Pat delivers the hook asking, "Should I go/should I stay/or should I leave her/she bout to turn this into Ike and Tina." The Memphis rapper then gets into bird-bashing verse. The song also features a sluggish Malik B. The song is believed to be his last appearance as a member of The Roots.

6. U.S. soldiers in Iraq join "Free Pimp C" movement. It is the norm to hear rappers sporting "Free Pimp C" shirts or demand the rapper's freedom on interviews and tracks, but the movement has apparently spread as far as Iraq. Seven soldiers stationed in Iraq recently took the time to acknowledge the incarceration of the Houston rapper. Standing in front of a sand color tank, the soldiers pose as they hold the sign of support that reads "Free Pimp C". .. ticle.php/7640 :applause: :applause:
