50 Cent Vouches for Gucci Mane & Waka Flocka Flame

When it comes to being real, every artist claims authenticity but few live up to the title. During our interview with 50 Cent for the November 2010 issue of XXL, the G-Unit general—never known for not having any issues when it comes to street-credibility—co-signed 1017 Brick Squad’s own, Gucci Mane and Waka Flocka Flame for their believability on the mic.

“When I offer aggression, I offer it from an author, a real place,” Fif explained to XXL co-deputy editor Rondell Conway. “It’s who I am; it’s who I had to be. Not even by choice, but to survive where I came from. So a lot of actual artists don’t have it. They don’t have that thing. Waka Flocka, ‘Hard in the Paint,’ Gucci [Mane], those guys have that.”

“It’s just a lot of the other artists, I don’t believe them,” he continued. “I believe hip-hop is in a struggle of being artistic or [having] authenticity—which one matters? Because a lot of them that write music that has a street-life theme to it haven’t actually been exposed to very much of that. It’s starting to feel like it doesn’t matter. I’m watching it, and I’m like, Okay, it sounded great, but ya lyin’.”

XXL’s November 2010 issue, which features 50 Cent and Soulja Boy on the cover, is currently on newsstands nationwide.

Lil Wayne Arrives In Arizona

Just a day after his release from prison, Lil Wayne is staying on the move. 

The rapper touched down in Arizona on Friday (November 5) after jetting from New York hours before for a court appearance. The MC's motorcade was spotted in Yuma Friday afternoon, where Wayne is expected to sign paperwork in connection with a two-year-old drug arrest.

The superstar lyricist was chauffeured in a Black Ford Excursion as part of a six-car caravan. The vehicles circled the Arizona Superior Court in Yuma County around 1:10 p.m. local time, where several bystanders awaited a glimpse of the MC in 84-degree heat. However, Wayne did not enter the courthouse, and finished his legal business blocks away at the Yuma County Adult Probation center, leaving around 1:45 p.m.

Wayne was picked up on January 22, 2008, at a U.S. Border Patrol checkpoint where officials claimed Ecstasy, cocaine and a handgun was found on the MC's tour bus. Weezy copped a plea deal during his eight-month Rikers bid for weapons charges for the Arizona case, and was handed a sentence of community service and three years of unsupervised probation. Wayne was able to skirt additional prison time through the deal and pleaded guilty to one count of possession of a dangerous drug in exchange for the dismissal of three other drug and weapons charges.

"Even though it's treated as a felony while he's on probation, if he completes his probation without any violations, the offense will be redesignated as a misdemeanor," Wayne's Arizona attorney, James Tilson, told MTV News on Tuesday.

The rest of Weezy's schedule hasn't been pinned down but the members of the newly freed MC's camp have hinted he has a jet-setting weekend ahead. Drake has teased a possible Weezy appearance at the final stop of the Toronto lyricist's Light Dreams and Nightmares Tour in Las Vegas. In addition, Wayne's ex-wife, Antonia "Toya" Carter, told MTV News an intimate family gathering is in the works in Miami, and Young Money label chief, Mack Maine, gave details of the MC's blowout bash Sunday night in the Florida city.

Lil Wayne Can't Drink For Three Years Under Probation

Lil Wayne isn't allowed to drink alcohol for three years, according to Arizona probation documents obtained by TMZ.

According to the papers, the newly freed MC (born Dwayne Carter), who just wrapped up an eight-month prison bid for gun possession, "may not consume or drink any substance containing alcohol" under the provisions of his probation for a 2008 Arizona drug and weapons case. Weezy also cannot knowingly consort with any individual involved in criminal activity or anybody that has a criminal record without getting approval in writing from the probation department.

Additional terms make possessing toxic vapors, controlled substances or illegal drugs also off-limits to the MC. Wayne must submit to drug and alcohol testing. He could be sent back to prison to ride out the remainder of his time on probation if he fails to comply with the terms.

Wayne was taken into custody in January 2008 at a U.S. Border Patrol checkpoint, where authorities alleged that Ecstasy, cocaine and a handgun were found on the MC's tour bus. Weezy copped a plea deal that has him doing mandatory community service, in addition to three years of unsupervised probation. Wayne pleaded guilty to one count of possession of a dangerous drug in exchange for the dismissal of three other drug and weapons charges.

If Wayne behaves himself throughout his probation, the severity of his original offense will be downgraded.

"Even though it's treated as a felony while he's on probation, if he completes his probation without any violations, the offense will be redesignated as a misdemeanor," Wayne's Arizona attorney, James Tilson, told MTV News on Tuesday.

Weezy is currently in celebration mode, with a major throwdown set to kick off in Miami Sunday. However, an expert recently told MTV News that, among the challenges that someone in Wayne's position faces, he has to be careful not to overindulge in his newfound freedom.

"The danger is when you have been deprived of something and then get it in excess, you swallow it and take it up in excess and it becomes a rush, it becomes an extreme version," said psychotherapist Allison Bobick, director of student advancement at New York's Touro College Graduate School of Social Work. "They're both extremes, and whenever you have those extremes, it prohibits you from living a healthy lifestyle."
