Gangsta Wants To Look Pretty

[NationalEnquirer] What hardcore gangsta rapper turned into a temper-throwing diva when he saw the photo that was going to be used for an upcoming magazine cover? Turns out the 40-year-old musician thought he looked way too old standing next to a much-younger entertainer, so he demanded his face be Photoshopped!

    50 cent – although he’s only in his late thirties
    diddy- i wouldn’t classify him as hardcroe gangsta
    jay z- he’s 42

    • Singapore Slang

      I think it’s Snoop. He’s 40 and would be considered a gangsta rapper. Diddy is not a gangsta rapper and Jay-Z still looks…how he always looks. haha

    • akajenb

      I’ll go with fiddy. No amount of make up or photoshop will help jayz in that department. lol

  • ClueMeIn

    I don’t know, but that picture is….hard to look at.

  • Pastelles

    Jay Z? Diddy?

  • sarahbear

    Jay-Z always looked like the Kool camel so I’m going with Diddy or Fiddy. Diddy is not really hardcore gangsta anything but who knows according to the opinion of the writer.

  • sarahbear

    Scratch my above guess. Black don’t crack, Eminem for the win. He’s 40.

    • whatsherface

      I’m with this guess. Em was just on the cover of Vibe with another (younger) rapper. http://www.vibe.com/posts/eminem-and-yelawolf-cover-vibes-year-end-issue-excerpts

    • Mermaid

      I wouldn’t be so quick to label this solved. Yelawolf is only 7 years younger than Em – that is not “much younger” IMO. Both their faces look photoshopped in that pic.

      Also, “Black don’t crack”? Really? Tell that to the remaining Jackson family members including Catherine Jackson and Joe Jackson. They look like they’ve “cracked” a long time ago (and in more ways than one!) LOL. Also, Matthew Knowles, Whitney Houston; I could go on and on. Black most certainly cracks just like everyone else.

      • sarahbear

        Well Whitney really DID crack. Of course she looks like shizz. The older Jackson’s are like a hundred!! I’m not saying that older black people NEVER look old

      • Mermaid

        “Well Whitney really DID crack” LOL!!

        Although .. I used to love Whitney – what a voice on her. I think I’m going go youtube one of her songs now.

      • sarahbear

        Yeah…her debut album was the first cassette I ever begged my mom for. She was so beautiful. Hard to imagine wasting her gifts

      • Mermaid

        Whitney was gorgeous. I think she used to be a model too. I used to wish I looked like her. IMO she had it all – beautiful face, tall (but not too tall) & slim yet busty, and incredibly talented. I just don’t think she appreciated what she had and I think it came way too easy for her.

      • up2trouble

        Actually, we don’t crack for a very long time unless we have been living hard. I recently got carded to buy a lottery ticket and I’m Dr. Dre’s age. This is not a fluke it happens to me often.

      • Mermaid

        Okay, the thing is, I’m kind of reticent to post anything here because some people are so quick to jump on the racism bandwagon and misinterpret my words. When they are meant innocently.

        So I’ll just say the following: aging is SO much more than wrinkles. Melanin plays a role in wrinkling as redheads and fair-skinned people are quicker to develop lines than those who have darker or olive skin tones. Also lines in those with darker or olive skin tones may be less visible due to the darker skin colour – but they are still there – they are just less visible because of the darker surrounding tissue.

        But, more importantly, as we get older, the skin loses volume & elasticity and other chemical changes, etc. occur that cause the skin to sag. There’s a whole concept about it called the “beauty triangle” – it’s been researched to death. That’s why you can see redheads & blondes in their mid-20s with lines and they STILL look like they are in their mid-20s. These changes do not depend on the colour of the skin.

        And that’s all I’m going to say. I want to say more, but I won’t because I honestly don’t want to offend anyone but “Black don’t crack” is simply not true (IMO) and all it does is encourage strife between differing cultures.

        I will say this: those with darker skin tones are at a MUCH lower risk of developing skin cancer which is a HUGE advantage these days as the pollution we humans cause (especially people like Laurie David who preaches environmentalism yet fly private jet, but I digress) is making skin cancer a very serious reality. Peace :)

      Is it me or does he look like he got a really horrid face lift a few years ago? Makes him look really evil mad sometimes when he just has a straight face. As for the guess. Sure. Sounds good. Cosign.

      • RedScience

        except that was eminem ever really a ‘hardcore gangsta’ rapper? no, but maybe some (softer people) consider him as this…

      • FamousPeopleDoStupidThings

        Definitely hardcore.
        Definitely NOT gangsta.

        And though he complains throughout almost every song I’ve ever heard of his, I just couldn’t see him tantruming over the way he looks.
        And watch a couple of his interviews. He’s not a diva.

      • msp96302

        Yes, he did have some work done on his face no doubt. I remember thinking this and actually compared a few pics of him from his early years. Many of his facial features have been altered big time. Plus, even though “gangsta”, he seems vain enough for a) plastic surgery AND b) to be intimidated by a younger artist. He IS a diva!

    • amagod121

      Yes! Winner!!

    • Singapore Slang

      Changing my answer to this!! ^ And I must say dayum, Eminem is 40 now!! Time sure does fly!

    • up2trouble

      I with you. I don’t think Snoop would be sober enough to care how he looks … and you are so right, black doesn’t crack.

    • saucykitty

      NICE JOB! Also, goodness me, that photo is altered all to heck n back. Eminem has NEVER looked that good on his own, hahaha.

  • pattycakes

    Snoop Dog

  • liberache

    Snoop Dog: he turned 40 in October.

  • SiG621

    Pharell! He is not super “ghangsta” but he is 38 and part of his lyrics in a song are “see these ice cubes, see these icecreams”… Just guessing based on the picture!

  • GG brought me here

    ‘A temper-throwing dive’ makes me think it’s P.Diddy. To be honest, I am curious as who that entertainer was… maybe Justin Bieber? He is much younger.

  • Jessica

    Snoop Dogg as the 40 yr old rapper & Wiz Khalifa for the younger entertainer

  • Marina

    DMX for the older rapper.

  • PrettyB

    P. Diddy is NOT a GANSTRA RAPPER! Its either:

    Ice Cube or Ice T.

    When I think of “gangsta rap” these two men popped in my head.

    Also, Snoop dogg is known for smoking weed, I can not see him having a “temper” he is too mellow for that.

  • caela94

    Diddy is 41, Jay Z 42
    Probably Snoop

  • MissFaye

    Diddy is not a “hardcore gangsta rapper”. Snoop Dogg was from the gangsta rap era and he is 40. I also thought of 50 Cent who posed on a magazine cover with Soulja Boy, but 50’s only 36 yrs old. Sounds like 50 to me though.

    • CoCoJoe

      I am shocked that Snoop is only 40. I had to Google to confirm this. I just assumed he is well over 50.

  • CollegeGirl

    Dr. Dre

  • sonnyvega

    I thought of Snoop Dog right away for a few reasons. I think the age fits, Diddy and Em are not hardcore gangsta rappers and mostly because the ice cream cone tattoo made me immediately think of him in Katy Perry’s California Gurls video. Pretty sure he sits on some type of ice cream cone throne in it.

  • YesMaam

    BG, I must tell you, “gansta rap” ended in the late 90s, and I find it offensive to associate that music with these lame, prissy no-talents.XD

    Just say “Black rapper” for Pete’s sake! I am Black. It would not offend me, and, since it’s true,that is, about a Black person who is a rapper, I doubt it would offend anyone else. If it does, f*** ’em!

    You have Amendment rights!

    The dude in the photo’s name is Gucci Mane. Anyone who would name themselves after a low-grade designer & horse’s hair is clearly “stable” enough to tattoo an ice cream cone on his face. XD

    Anyway, my guess is Diddy. I thought Eminem at first because he’s reportedly self-conscious about looking “gay” and has his own photographer. But, Diddy & Kanye are NOTORIOUS for having public fits, tantrums, and “Divo” moments.

  • smoothcriminal

    what Americans call a “bowl”, Australians call a “cone”, so the pic could be a hint at snoop, but after seeing that cover with Em, it HAS to be him. he looks terrible lately.

    • MissFaye

      Ok, well why I don’t consider Eminem to be a gangsta rapper, he is turning 40 this year (who knew?). Also he was just featured on the cover of VIBE magazine with Yelawolf who is 32. So maybe Eminem is a contender if the writers of the blind consider him to be “gangsta”…

  • KittyKate

    This is def Pharrell, he has a brand called Icecream that makes sneakers.

  • Mermaid

    Okay, first of all, I’m with Famous … Em is not gangsta.

    Second, YelaWolf is only 7 years younger (so not “much younger”) than Em AND is his protege so … I doubt Em would throw a Diva fit. And both look to be photoshopped.

    I’m with liberache’s Snoop & Wiz Kalifa guess. Snoop WAS considered gangsta rapper at some point & the diff in age between Snoop & Wiz is 16 years which can be considered “much younger”.

  • iknowitall89

    nop is snoog dog next to wiz they doing a movie and they got a song and a video

  • Serena van der Woodsen

    I know Eminem once threw a fit over some magazine photoshopping a pink shirt instead of the red one he was wearing on him.

    But Marshall is 38 oder 39 so not yet 40! Jeez 40! OMFG!

  • damons

    I think it’s Busta Rhymes. He is 39, and looks old! He recently had a hit with Chris Brown, and I think I read somewhere that they are going to do another song together, because “Look at me Now” was so successful. I wouldn’t be surprised if they were on a magazine cover together.

  • shynook11

    I’m going with Vanilla Ice because of the ice cream clearly featured in the picture.

  • SiG621

    Changed my mind, I am now on the Master P train…

  • Dont Know For Sure

    It sounds like Snoop to me. He is/was classified as a gangsta rapper, he’s 40 and after seeing the photo with Wiz it seems very likely. Plus Wiz has always reminded me of a younger version of Snoop with too many tattoos.

  • HotTeacher88

    After looking at both pics, I’ll have to go with Em. His pic looks artificial, especially around the eyes. You can see the concealer, but it goes beyond that with a special-effects movie kind of look to it.

  • ILoveDlisted

    I love Em
