YA DON’T SAY – What’s in a name?
A rapper known as Wais P the Pimp, who contributed to Jay-Z tracks in the 90s, was charged with promoting prostitution on Thursday, police said.
Malcolm Byer, 41, of Teaneck, N.J., who is better known by his rap alias, was arrested on Wednesday after appearing in Manhattan Supreme Court on a DWI charges, law enforcement sources said.
Byer grew up in Crown Heights, Brooklyn and was part of the New York City hip hop scene in the 1990s, according to a bio on his Facebook page.
The rapper dubbed his musical style as “pimp hop” and has said it explores the pimp lifestyle. He has released several tracks in recent years.
“I’ll have you turning more tricks, than Cirque du Soleil is, or Blue Man group, only difference is, you got to bring me back that loot,” Byer rapped on the 2010 song “You See It.”
Mr. P the Pimp is going to catch a lot of flack for this arrest, and rightfully so, but something needs to be said about a guy who stands by his word. Being a pimp isn’t just a rap name for Malcolm Byer; he is an actual pimp. I love that. Rappers literally have any name at their disposal. They can choose Jim W the Garbage Man or Fancy Feet Rick. The possibilities are literally endless. So if someone is going to go out of their way and name themselves a pimp, it warms my heart to know that he is an actual pimp. Unfortunately for Wais, prostitution is illegal, so he should probably think about another career and change his rap name. It’s hard out there for a pimp.

One of the funniest aspects of the Gabe Day persona is the fact that this profanity spewing, aspiring Nas protégé is an undergraduate at Sarah Lawrence College. Sarah Lawrence is a small liberal arts college in New York; it was also originally founded as an all-female institution. We hope that Sarah Lawrence’s dope girl/ boy ratio is worth the $60,000 dollars a year that’s being forked over so Gabe can embrace his musical talent and pursue his major in waking and baking.
Thanksgiving dinner is going to awkward at the Lewis house this year. I can sense Daniel Day Lewis’s disappointment from here, because nobody takes acting more serious than Daniel Day Lewis. Nobody. And I guarantee he wanted his son to become an actor. Probably trained him to become a method actor as a kid. While most kids went out and played basketball on the weekend, Gabe Day was trying to perfect his Brando in The Godfather. So naturally he grew up to be a rapper. I don’t know how great of an artist he is, but his rapper name is awful. Gabe Day? So you took your given name and dropped Lewis. Got it. Plus it sounds really similar to game day or gay day, and I can’t imagine that being a good thing for a rapper. His name might suck, but the kid has “the look”. Grey long sleeve shirt and a backwards hat? That’s as hardcore gangster as it gets.

The F.A.M.E. singer was booked on felony assault charges for punching the man in the face after an argument got out of hand. Sources claim Breezy and the man did not know each other, and that the other man did not throw a punch.
Brown was with his bodyguard, who was also arrested. Law enforcement confirms that neither Brown nor his bodyguard were under the influence of alcohol or drugs. The victim of the reported attack, who is claiming serious injury, was taken to a local hospital for evaluation and treatment.
If convicted, Brown could face up to four years of prison time for the incident, which violates his 2009 probation order following the battery of then-girlfriend Rihanna. Brown was also involved in scuffles with rapper and nemesis Drake, and later with Frank Ocean, neither of which resulted in criminal charges.
Breezy was in the D.C. area to host a party at Park & 14th nightclub.
Chris Brown allegedly used a gay slur against the man he punched in the face, according to eyewitnesses, in front of a Washington, D.C. hotel early Sunday morning. The victim and his friend reportedly photo bombed a picture Brown was taking with two female fans, causing the singer to snap and start a brawl.
Before throwing the first punch, Brown reportedly said, “I’m not into this gay s***, I’m into boxing.” The victim of the attack, who was treated at a local hospital and subsequently released, is urging prosecutors to file criminal charges. Brown could face up to four years of prison time for breaking his probation (still active from his 2009 attack against Rihanna) and additional time if convicted of assault.”
What a piece of shit this guy has turned out to be. It’s not enough to be a women beater anymore. Now you have to be a homophobe too. It seems as if Chris Brown has gotten every dickhead attribute a human can be born with. The perfect storm of assholes. Let’s hope this time he gets the punishment he deserves, which is a 4 year jail sentence with his roomate, slippery Jim.
If I ever get divorced, this is EXACTLY how I’m handling things. Even if I’m happily married I might get divorced just to be as cool as this guy. This video may only be 17 seconds long but his wife seems a little ungrateful to me. The guy obviously has some serious talent*. He’s living his dream. If I could quote Chris Martin, “nobody said it was easy”. You think Kanye, or Biggie, or Mark Wahlberg rose to fame overnight? Hell no they didn’t. They busted their ass for years. Fame and fortune doesn’t sit on the curb waiting to be picked up. It dances with the daring. And if this anonymous man isn’t daring, then I don’t know who is.
* He should probably find a day job.
