Rap Daily: Manny Pacquaio will show solidarity with Hip-Hop culture by having Miami emcee Rick Ross walk him to the ring for his May 7 showdown with Shane Mosley. 

Ross confirmed the news yesterday via his Twitter account.

50 has publicly supported Mayweather in several fights, most notably accompanying him to the ring for his record-breaking 2007 showdown with Oscar De La Hoya. 

High-profile boxers have sought out rap figures to enhance their ring walks since the mid 90′s, including Naseem Hamed (Diddy), Roy Jones Jr (Method Man and Redman), Cory Spinks (Nelly) and Mike Tyson (Tupac Shakur). 

May 7 will mark the first time Pacquiao has done a ring walk with a rapper. 

At press time, neither Pacquiao nor Ross have disclosed what music will be used.

The Narcotics Task Force and a SWAT team was parked nearby, in case the other 40 officers needed additional backup for strictly for the show, which drew about 100 people to the venue.

According to the police, they were there due to other spring break events taking place around the area, but local residents rejected the notion, because of the police's concentration in front of the City Club.

The New York Post
 reports that Combs was supposed to hit Club 4 Sixty 6 in West Orange after his show at the Hammerstein Ballroom, but use of the club's helipad wasn't cleared in time. 

Instead, Combs received a three-car police escort from the NYPD and police officers in New Jersey, as well. 

A source to the The Post that Diddy was driven "like a head of state" in his Bentley, with police in the front and three SUV's tailing the rap star/mogul. 

"This happened last-minute. I organized the police escort through my contacts," said John Mahdessian, the owner of Madam Paulette, a high-end couture dry-cleaning service. "There were three squad cars with the lights flashing. I went along also. We were at the club in New Jersey within 15 minutes."

According to the New York Post, police escorts are not usually offered to private citizens.

"I'm talking to you 'p***y P.,' 'Karrine Steffans.' You talking about n**as crown's is so soft, my ni**a. F**k is wrong with you. Look where I'm at. What you want me to do, walk around this b*tch? I aint to prove to you that I'm from QB or [that] my n***as hold me down in my hood, ni**a."

Capone vehemently denied Prodigy's accusations that he was a snitch and escalated the war of words. 

"n***a's don't rat on my side. You're a f**king fa**ot. But at the end of the day I aint gonna call you all that, because we got a lot of things in store for you this is just the beginning, act 1."

Prodigy has yet to respond to Capone's comments.

The Game Comes Out On Stage With Lil Wayne After Being Released

Rap Daily:Amid conflicting reports that he was denied entry and subsequently detained at Canadian borders while on his “Red Nation” tour, it appears that former 50 Cent protégé The Game is no longer under the authority of our neighbors to the north. The Documentary rapper graced the stages of the Honda Center in Anaheim, California alongside Young Money chief Lil Wayne during a stop on the “I Am Still Music” tour last night (April 22), thrilling fans into a wild frenzy.
Website Rap-Up uploaded a video of the performance of The Game’s track “My Life,” which features an auto-tuned Lil Wayne on the hook. The Game came on stage rocking his customary red bandana on his face, snatching it off to reveal himself with Weezy introducing the surprise guest to the audience. Both rappers wore red Converse shoes, and the self-proclaimed Chuck Taylor tossed his bandana into the crowd and cocked his hat back and launched into a powerful performance of the song.
A heavy user of the social media tool Twitter, The Game was curiously absent from the site as he was supposedly handling his issues with Canadian authorities. A statement from the promoters of the tour stressed that The Game was detained for reasons not linked to the rapper’s past or current criminal activity. “We as the Canadian promoters for the "Red Nation" tour featuring hip-hop artist The Game, completed all necessary work permits and paperwork to allow him entry into Canada,” shared The Substance Group in a statement.
The promoters went on to add, “The past criminal history of The Game was never addressed in conversation with Canadian officials and at no point was that the issue for his denied entry," read the statement. "Customs insisted the reason was strictly his current gang affiliations.” Whatever the case may be, Canadian officials are remaining tight-lipped about what they uncovered and why the Compton native was barred from entering the country.

Max B. Says He Could Be Home As Early As Summer

Rap Daily: Hip-Hop star Max B. could be coming home as soon as July, if things go according to plans with the appeal of his 75-year jail sentence.

Max was sentenced to the prison sentence in June of 2009, for his alleged part in a botched robbery that lead to a homicide in a Fort Lee, New Jersey hotel.

During an exclusive interview, Max B. explained how he prepared to enter the jail system and what he might face behind the walls, while serving the 75 years. 

"The appeal process is done, finally, it's been done for about a month now," Max B. revealed. "So now what they do is, the prosecutor responds back and you get a letter. They tell you, you gotta wait eight to 10 months for a response from the appellate court."

According to Max B., he is expecting the decision regarding his freedom to be made much sooner than the eight to ten months window of time that it normally takes. 

"You might see me in the summer, you might see me at the end of the year," Max B. revealed. "I'm just waiting on the appellate courts. All my paperwork is done."

Prosecutors accused the rapper of plotting a botched robbery that left one man dead in September 2006. 

Max B. allegedly conspired to rob two men at a Holiday Inn on Route 4 in New Jersey, because the two men were known to carry large sums of cash with them. 

Things went wrong when the rapper's stepbrother Kelvin Leerdam shot and killed a man named David Taylor in the face, killing him instantly. 

In June of 2009, Max B., born Charles Wingate, was convicted of felony murder, manslaughter, conspiracy to commit robbery and seven other charges for alleged his role in the shooting death of Taylor.

While Max B. said things were going as smooth as they could inside the maximum facility that's housing him, he made it clear he is anxious to resume his Hip-Hop career.

"I try not to be too popular in this joint, be real humble, stay regular. I don't want to be too exotic up in here, this aint the spot for that. My thing is coming home, back to the family, back to the people and doing what I do best on the real level. In the streets, in the town, where I need to be back in the studio, back on the road, making hits with Amalgam Digital."


West coast rapper games detainment in Canada was reportedly because of his ties with the bloods.  According to reports,Games criminal activities restricted him from entering Canada.
A rep for Substance Entertainment Group -- the promotion company behind Game's tour in Canada -- tells TMZ, the tour promoter got a call from Canadian Customs while Game was on the plane on his way to Canada. We're told customs informed the promoter that Game would be denied entry "due to new information received that Game is affiliated with organized crime and is an active member of the Bloods street gang." The rep claims Game was blindsided by the last-minute red flag -- telling us, concert organizers had secured all permits and approval weeks ago to get Game into the country. (TMZ)

Dorrough Planning Documentary Exposing DEA Drug Raid In Feb.

Rap Daily: On February 8th, at approximately 7:30 AM, the DEA executed a search warrant that accused platinum recording artist Dorrough Music of distributing drugs.

The rapper, who said he is falsely accused of a crime that he has never committed, is responding with an untitled documentary and new song directed at the “Hip-Hop Police."

“They kicked in the door, they came in here, I was in the bedroom the whole time,” Dorrough explained in the documentary. “They laid us on the ground and it was 10 DEA agents and five went upstairs. And while they were searching us they went through all my stuff and moved stuff around while we were downstairs”

Dorrough even has documents that claims confidential informants and undercover officers had been planning the raid for over a year.

“I just remember someone kicking in the door, I hear a lot of commotion and a lot of noise. I first thought I was getting robbed,” he explained. “So I jumped up and when I came to see what was going on, by the time I got to the door of my room, I already had guns pointed at my face.”

“What if my daughter was there?” he recalled. “All these thoughts going on in my head.  I wouldn’t even say it was professional the way they did it, I think they was out of line the way they did it. My girl is crying, scared and it’s more like they violated me.”

Dorrough explained in the documentary that a few months prior to the break in, he received a charge for accidentally carrying a concealed weapon in his backpack at an airport and lost his license to carry a firearm. 

Had he reached for his gun when the DEA raided his home, Dorrough believes he would have been shot and killed.

Dorrough doesn’t plan to let the incident stop his career though as he has multiple releases on the horizon and a single that talks about the DEA raid.

“I just dropped the Gangsta Grillz Code Red. The response has been crazy to where I am doing another commercial release in June and another mixtape with DJ Drama. One of the songs I want to put on there really portrays the way everything happen and it really conveys how I felt.”

Dorrough’s most recent commercial single “Get Big” was remixed and featured DJ Drama, Diddy, Yo Gotti, Bun B, Diamond, Shawty Lo, Wiz Khalifa & Maino.
