Vince Staples: “Ray J is More Powerful Than Lil’ B”

Vince Staples brings his Norwood-ian philosophy to GQ

Earlier this month, Vince Staples sat down with Peter Rosenberg of Hot 97 for an interview and a freestyle in promotion of his debut album, Summertime ’06, hitting stores today. During his interview, Staples spoke at length about the impact of Ray J on Hip-Hop culture, from helping to make Kim Kardashian‘s relevant, to changing Fabolous‘ career forever, and not in a positive way. It was fascinating to see someone sensationalize nearly every Ray J career move, and Staples expanded on those sentiments in a sit-down with GQ magazine. Here’s an excerpt below, and do yourself a favor and read the entire conversation here.

If you didn’t know, Staples’ stellar debut album, Summertime ’06, is in stores now. Stream it here.

How did Ray J ruin the career of Fabolous?

They were at the Floyd Mayweather fight, and Fabolous disrespected the Money Team, so Ray J smacked the shit out of him! I don’t know if he ruined his career, but all I know is that I’ve never looked at Fabolous the same ever since that stuff with Ray J went down. If you’re a New York artist, and someone calls a radio station and says, “Imma smack the shit outta you ‘cause you’re a bitch to me” and nothing happens, then Ray J wins. And I love Fab, but he didn’t call Power 106 [in Los Angeles].

Listen though. When you Google “Ray J” these are the people that come up that are associated with him: Kim Kardashian, Brandy, Kanye West, Whitney Houston, Damon Thomas, Kris Humphries, Reggie Bush, Lil’ Kim, Robert Kardashian, Rick Ross, Fabolous, Omarion. You show me someone who has such a star-studded line-up associated with them and then we can have a conversation.

Did you say Whitney Houston?

Yeah, he dated Whitney Houston. Ray J was Whitney Houston’s last boyfriend. He found her.

What’s your favorite Ray J song?

“Centerview.” It’s an ode to where he came from. Well we can’t forget his acting career. Ray J was in a movie called Once Upon a Time…When We Were Colored. Ray J fought for civil rights on the big screen.

Who is more powerful, Ray J or Lil B?

Ray J is more powerful than Lil B.

Ray J Reportedly Got Beaten To A Pulp By His Girlfriend

Yikes

According to a TMZ report, Ray J caught the fade from Princess Love, his girlfriend.

That’s the report in a nutshell, but here are some of the reported details. Ray J, born William Ray Norwood Jr., spent the night at a strip club with some of the producers from the show he stars in with Ms. Love, Love & Hip-Hop: Hollywood, and when he returned home to his girlfriend and co-star, she went ballistic. The “I Hit It First” singer told cops that Love punched and kicked him, eventually tearing his ACL and cracking his ribs.

The report also mentions a witness allegedly heard Love yell that she’s going to kill Norwood Jr.

However, after stumbling out of the hotel and having Love arrested, Ray J reportedly bailed her out of jail and covered her lawyer fees. Fatal attraction?

Kim Kardashian Hints At Sex Tape With Kanye

Once bitten, twice shy

Kim Kardashian is “famous all off a home movie” as per her husband Kanye West‘s “Clique” verse, and he isn’t far from the truth. After her naked escapades with her ex-boyfriend, Ray J, hit the internet in 2007, there was no looking back for the current Keeping Up With The Kardashians star. She’s since then become a business in and of herself, and now that she’s teamed up with the rapper/producer of the decade, her empire is pretty much infallible.

So, she didn’t really hesitate to not rule out the fact that she and Kanye may have got in front of the camera in Ray J/Kim K fashion. An excerpt from her conversation with British GQ after garnering Woman Of The Year honors last week:

Listen it was years ago,” she said. “I was 22 years old. You know when you are young you do things with your boyfriend. Back then, I didn’t think making a sex tape was even that scandalous. He was my boyfriend of years and years. Lots of people I know have done it and are doing it.

My husband Kanye and I have an amazing sex life,” Kardashian said. “So far as the sex tape is concerned, whether or not we’ve made another … If we have, it’s never something I want to go public. I never want to make the same mistake twice. You do these sorts of things with people you trust. When someone says to me, ‘sex tape,’ it’s a very private thing, not something I would ever want anyone else to see but me and Kanye.

I am married to an incredible man and let’s just say we do like to have fun. “Have we made another? There’s nothing wrong with being adventurous, having fun and experimenting, but there’s definitely the right sort of person you should surround yourself with. Kanye and I have a very good sex life. What we do privately is private. I think let’s just leave it at that.

Ray J’s week is not off to a good start

On Monday, popular and controversial R&B star Ray J was arrested for going on a drunken rampage outside a bar at the Beverly Wilshire hotel, including spitting on a police officer.  He got so out of control a D.A. attempted to charge him with a crime the cops say he didn’t even commit.

According to a TMZ report, Ray J was asked to leave the bar because he “brushed up against a woman’s ass”, and flew into a rage that included kicking out a cop window because he was “claustrophobic”, and spitting on the aforementioned cop.  He was charged with resisting arrest, assault and battery, and vandalism, all of which are misdemeanor charges.

L O L.

News broke last week that Kanye West & Kim Kardashian would be getting married this week in France, so naturally, tons of well-wishes and wedding gift ideas began flooding the internet. However, this wedding gift idea from Ray J, the infamous former boyfriend of Kim Kardashian, probably won’t be as well received as others.

The singer/actor plans on sending Kanye West and Kim Kardashian a check for $47,000 as a gift. Sounds pretty generous, right? Wrong. That number is the total amount of revenue Ray J has accumulated in 2014 from the sale of his sex tape with Kim Kardashian. Its a wonder that the tape, which was sold to Vivid Entertainment, is still grossing profits 6 years after its initial release, and sources have revealed to TMZ that the home movie has grossed 50 million dollars in total profits. According to TMZ, this is the breakdown of Ray J’s profits by month this year:

— January $6,135.60
— February $20,097.31
— March $9,674.76
— April $10,931.52
— TOTAL: $46,840.13

Trolling on 1000.

The woman now wants an apology from Ray J.
