Rapper Busta Rhymes is Not Gay (Happy) about Gays?
Although Rapper Busta Rhymes has a hot new single "Touch It" that's getting heavy radio and video airplay, he made it very clear in Miami that he doesn't like to be touched by homosexuals. According to the NY Daily News, the story goes a little something like this...
March 29, 2006 -- BUSTA Rhymes went ballistic on a young gay fan who dared to tap the rapper on the shoulder after a night of clubbing in Miami. Rhymes, who was in South Beach for the Winter Music Conference, has been on edge ever since one of his security guards, Israel Ramirez, was shot dead last month in Brooklyn while guarding Rhymes' jewelry. But it seems nothing makes the rapper's temper flare faster than the unwanted touch of an effeminate man. The drama unfolded at the 11th Street Diner, which is next door to gay club Twist, early Sunday morning. "The restaurant was packed with transvestites, gay men and drag queens, which obviously made Busta a little edgy," eyewitness Thomas Barker e-mails. "This became evident when a young gay guy came up behind Busta and tapped him on the shoulder to congratulate the rapper on his recent comeback. Before the guy could even mutter a word, Busta turned around and repeatedly screamed, 'Why the [bleep] you touchin' me, man? Get the [bleep] away from me' . . . his two huge bodyguards then caused an even larger scene by pushing the kid away . . . Busta quietly whispered to his bodyguards, 'I hate [bleeping] faggots, man.' " A spokeswoman for Rhymes did not return calls.

Lookalike Rappers: You be the Judge (and Jury)
There's no denying that much of the rap music played on the radio is starting to sound alike. For instance, we swear "Lean With It Rock With It" and "Betcha Can't Do It Like Me" are the same friggin song! But that's neither here, nor there. We found some rappers that remind us of each other. Let's start with D4L and Dem Franchise Boyz. These fools need to join forces and have one big Super Snap Music Group, they could call themselves SSMG--Get it?

We saw a recent picture of Rapper Chamillionaire who is from Houston, TX and had to do a doubletake because we thought he was 50 Cent...Hmmmm

And for our final lookalike of the day, don't you think Paul Wall and Bubba Sparxx could be related? Come on? Maybe first or second cousins? Ok, maybe just friends LOL

Here's a big shout out to Candice for sending us her pics from Allstar Weekend.
