BEEF ALERT! Pitbull and Lil Wayne are going at it — in the musical sense, of course. Because in case you guys were too busy looking at photos of Justin Bieber in bed with his siblings and/or watching Jennifer Lawrence take a tumble at the Oscars, Lil Wayne recently said some not nice things about Miami Heat players Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh during NBA All-Star Weekend. Naturally, Pitbull, a proud Floridan, wrote a retaliation diss record being all like, “EFF YOU, WAYNE!” And the best part? Aside from the whole “fighting with music” thing? Pit rhymes over over Baauer’s “Harlem Shake” beat! PRAISE!
Listen to Pitbull’s “Welcome To Dade County (Lil Wayne Diss)” after the jump.
Set to Baauer’s forever-immortalized beat, Pitbull lays the smack down: “Mouth signed check/Ass can’t cash/One-time LeBron, Bosh, D-Wade, Flash…/You got money, yeah/ Yeah, that’s sweet/ But we all know Slim and Baby really eat/ You talk Miami if you talking Heat/ Moral of the story, don’t s–t where you eat.” Is Pitbull maybe a smidge AGGRO right now? Perhaps, but being all “Florida4Lyfe!!” basically guarantees his becoming a major hometown hero AND that the entire Floridian population will lose their collective minds when this song plays up in da cluuuurb. And props to Pitbull for living up to his “Mr. 305” nickname!

The driver of a Maserati that was shot up early Thursday morning on Las Vegas’ famed Strip, causing the vehicle to crash into a taxi cab and leading to a deadly explosion, was a 27-year-old aspiring rapper, according to his family.
Three people were killed and at least six injured as a result of the 4:30 a.m. shooting and subsequent car crashes in a section of the Strip that includes Caesars Palace, Bally’s and the Bellagio.
The shooting came after the occupants of a Range Rover and the Maserati got into an altercation in the valet area of the Aria hotel and casino, according to Clark County Sheriff Doug Gillespie.
“We have numerous witnesses to this,” Las Vegas Police Sgt. John Sheahan said. “But what is the genesis of this? We don’t know yet.”A major manhunt is under way for the occupants of the Range Rover.
Kenny “Clutch” Cherry of Oakland, Calif. was at the wheel of the Maserati, his father told NBCBayArea.com on Thursday, when a black Range Rover with tinted windows and black rims pulled up and allegedly opened fire near a stoplight in the pre-dawn hours.
A passenger was injured by the gunfire and Cherry was killed, causing the car to spin out of control. The careening silver Maserati smashed into a taxicab, trapping the passenger and driver and causing the cab to burst into flames; both occupants were killed, police said. Then, the Maserati smashed into three other cars before coming to a stop.
The Maserati driver was a Chico State dropout who had gone to Las Vegas to pursue a rap career, father Kenneth Cherry, Sr., told NBCBayArea.com. He had filmed a music video on the Strip featuring his Maserati just months before. Cherry left behind three children, including a toddler and 2-month-old baby girl.
“I heard there was some sort of disagreement and the guys pulled to the side of him, and rolled their window down, and he rolled his window down,” Cherry said. “They just started shooting. My son for the record did not have any guns in his car. There was no gun battle. Nothing like that.”
Attorney Vicki Greco told Reuters she had represented the deceased Cherry in a civil case and a few traffic issues.
The Clark County Office of the Coroner/Medical Examiner confirmed Cherry’s identity and said he died from a gunshot wound to the chest.
The taxi driver was identified as Michael Boldon, 62, of Las Vegas. His passenger was Sandra Sutton-Wasmund, 48, of Maple Valley, Wash. Both died of “multiple blunt force injuries,” the office said.
All three deaths were classified as homicide.
In Las Vegas, visitors and law enforcement reacted with shock to the violent spectacle. The Strip has seen other recent incidents of violence, including a man who fired a gun inside the Circus Circus casino on New Year’s Eve and a parking garage shooting on Feb. 6.
“We get stabbings and gang violence,” Mark Thompson, a visitor from Manchester, England, told The Associated Press, “but this is like something out of a movie. Like ‘Die Hard’ or something.”
Officers are searching for the Range Rover with paper dealership plates and its male African-American occupants, police said. They are combing through surveillance tape for clues.
Rapper 2 Chainz has been arrested on drug charges in Maryland where he was performing at a college homecoming event.
Maryland State Police spokesman Sgt. Marc Black said troopers stopped a van Thursday night about 9:15 p.m. for speeding near Easton, Md., and smelled a strong odor of burnt marijuana in the van. A backpack in the van had a marijuana grinder and trace amounts of marijuana, police said.
The rapper, whose real name is Tauheed Epps, claimed possession of the backpack and was arrested, police said. Epps was cited for having drug paraphernalia and marijuana and was released. The citation carries up to a year in jail and up to a $1,000 fine.
Bay Area rapper Saafir affirmed his place in the Hip-Hop elite back in the 1990s after taking on Oakland-based rap crew the Hieroglyphics in a freestyle battle. Now, the Saucee Nomad is currently bound to a wheelchair after suffering severe spinal damage exacerbated by his addiction to the drug ecstasy, allegedly.
Media veteran Davey D published a blog posting from Shock G of Digital Underground, who explains in a timeline how Saafir went from a muscle bound rap titan to his current frail state between the years of 1992 to the present. The blog made its rounds on the Internets, depicting the physical fall of one of rap’s brightest and most ferocious lyricists.
Excerpts of Shock G’s email below:
1992: Survived TWA plane crash at JFK scheduled for Frisco. Engine blew during take-off, skidded-out sidewayz off the runway, came to a stop, and after a few seconds, burst into flames.
Saafir was the first one off, but he jumped before the slide fully inflated and wound up jolting his lower back as his feet hit the ground beneath the thin material.
1994 to 1999: He popped hella ecstasy without drinking the required water to protect the spine from dehydration.
Shock G then explained that an alternative health practitioner temporarily healed Saafir of his back pain while traveling as part of the Up In Smoke Tour in 2000. After touring for six years, his back pain returned and the rapper had a spinal operation in 2007. Shock G then details how Saafir has resorted to peddling his pain meds because of a lack of revenue in the music business.
Now said to be living in squalor and feasting on nothing but takeout meals, Saafir is paralyzed from the hip down. A failed operation attempt in Arizona dampened the “Battle Drill” rapper’s spirits and Shock G’s email didn’t offer anything resembling a happy ending.
Get well soon, Saafir.
