Snoop Dogg has rapped in songs where gay slurs have been tossed about. He’s even said them, part of a long list of rappers who have freely fuck and fag in a rhyme.For years, anti-gay epithets and sentiments in rap have largely been accepted, along with its frequent misogyny and violence, as part of the hip-hop culture — a culture that has been slow to change, even as gays enjoy more mainstream acceptance, particularly in entertainment.

Scott Storch tried to hide a baggie of cocaine in a trash can at the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Vegas before cops arrived … this according to the police report, obtained by TMZ.
In the report, the arresting officer says cops fished out the baggie after receiving a tip from hotel security … and discovered it contained 2.7 grams of blow.
Hip-hop producer Scott Storch — a recovering drug addict — was arrested in Vegas earlier this month for possession of cocaine … TMZ has learned.
According to law enforcement, Storch was arrested at a Vegas hotel around 8:30 AM on Feb. 4.
Sources tell us … the arrest went down after an employee called police to complain that Storch wouldn’t pay for his room.
When cops arrived to the scene, we’re told officers discovered Storch was in possession of cocaine. Storch was hauled to a nearby police station … where he was released on $5k bond.
Storch — who has worked with stars like Beyoncé, 50 Cent, Dr. Dre, Snoop, Pink and more — famously blew a $30 million fortune after getting hooked on drugs back in 2006. He eventually checked into rehab and has been working on his recovery ever since.

Snoop Dogg’s laid-back flow is one of the most consistent and dependable things in music, hip-hop or otherwise, and since the early ’90s, he’s made just about every track he’s guested on better. Now comes a true test of his abilities: In an interview with the New York Post, Paris Hilton has revealed that the Long Beach rapper will appear on her next album.
“It should be out in the next few months,” the heiress, reality star and sometime pop singer told Page Six, dishing about her forthcoming sophomore record. “We just finished doing my single with [band] LMFAO, then I’m recording with Snoop Dogg.”
The album is being produced by Hilton’s boyfriend, Afrojack, a Dutch DJ and dance artist known for his work with Pitbull and Beyonce, among others. Last year, he remixed Snoop’s single “Sweat,” which might explain how the Doggfather became involved with this project.
Or maybe Snoop liked what he heard back in 2009, when he and Paris — or Sweet P, as he dubbed her — busted some freestyle rhymes on his MTV show ‘Dogg After Dark.’ The clip below doesn’t leave us with much hope for the upcoming team-up, but maybe they’ve been practicing.

A little over a week has passed since Jay-Z welcomed his newborn daughter Blue Ivy into the world. Since then, the Brooklyn rapper has released ‘Glory,’ a tribute song celebrating the infant’s life. Now news is spreading that any future lyrics the Roc Nation founder puts out will no longer include the word “bitch.”
According to NME.com, a poem has surfaced that reveals Hov has no interest in referring to women by the derogatory term. “Before I got in the game, made a change, and got rich/ I didn’t think hard about using the word bitch/ I rapped, I flipped it, I sold it, I lived it/ Now with my daughter in this world I curse those that give it.”
There’s been no word from Jay-Z himself confirming the poem, but fans of the veteran MC feel the rumors that he’ll kick the word to the curb are untrue. After all, many of his rhymes are littered with it. In 2001, the entertainer released the track ‘Bitches & Sisters,’ off his seventh studio album, ‘The Blueprint 2: The Gift & The Curse.’ Then there’s one of his most lauded songs, ’99 Problems,’ released the following year on ‘The Black Album,’ which delivers the line, “I got 99 problems but a bitch ain’t one.”
Jay and wife Beyonce became parents on Jan. 7, when Blue Ivy was delivered at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City. Fans of the hip-hop and R&B couple in L.A. have dedicated a strain of marijuana to their new child. Weed with the name OG Blue Ivy is currently sold at local dispensaries.
