I mean seriously… she’s famous for doing what exactly? Being Kanye’s muse?

Or perhaps her relationship with Wiz Khalifa is keeping her relevant. *shrug*
Whatever the case, the bald bombshell admits in her VIBE interview that Yeezy taught her but she’s not very happy about seeing the revelation in print!
Kanye would always tell me how beautiful I was and that I was going to be iconic. He always said that, ‘Baby, you are iconic. You don’t understand what you have.’ I didn’t. I didn’t understand it.
Gucci Mane shows off his grill (and his ice cream fact tatt) on the cover of The Source’s annual Green Issue. The feature is written by Brian “B.Dot” Miller of Rap Radar and the issue hit newsstands yesterday (March 22nd).
Check out an excerpt where Gucci speaks on making the Forbes list last year:
Source: You don’t make Forbes by being stupid. Do you feel like people doubt your intelligence?
Gucci: Yeah. The critics and bloggers ridicule and scrutinize [but] it fuels my ﬁre. I can’t say I want to enjoy all the spoils of the game without being criticized. I actually welcome it as a part of success. I don’t want everybody to like me. So many people feel like I don’t deserve the things I got. I know I worked so hard for ‘em, so [criticism] makes me work even harder.

Sir Lucious Leftfoot covers the recent issue of Ozone Magazine. In the issue, Big Boi discusses his upcoming release and why he’s still fighting for the integrity of his music:
The people are not picking the music, it’s the suits now picking the music for the people to listen to. There’s not a lot of respect for it. It’s all about the dollar, so they want what sells the fastest. With music being such a fast burn nowadays, there’s a new song today and a new song tomorrow and another one on Wednesday.
My thing is, my focus is to make timeless classics and not conform into what’s going on now.
You tell’em boo!
Big’s Ozone cover story (done by fellow ATLien Maurice Garland) can be read in it’s entirety here.
