After last night’s lost to Marquez I think we all know without a shadow of a doubt who the best is. Mayweather don’t even play with Marquez; unlike Pac Man, who has had trouble with this guy every single fight culminating in a knock out to make it unquestionable.Pac Man vs. Marquez

GREEN MILE STAR– Michael Clarke Duncan, nominated for an Academy Award for his role in the 1999 film “The Green Mile,” died Monday morning at age 54, according to a representative for his family.
Duncan “suffered a myocardial infarction on July 13 and never fully recovered,” a written statement from Joy Fehily said.
Clarke died at a Los Angeles hospital where he had been since having the heart attack more than seven weeks ago.
According to TMZ, it was Duncan’s girlfriend Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth, a reality star and former contestant on “The Apprentice,” who had acted quickly and provided lifesaving efforts when he had the heart attack.

Most recently he was on the TV series, “The Finder,” on the Fox network.
His co-star Mercedes Masohn tweeted: “Today is a sad day. Michael Clark Duncan passed away this morning. Known for his moving performance in The Green Mile. RIP MCD. You’ll b missed.”
Read other tributes to the late actor
According to Entertainment Weekly, the TV series was canceled in May.
A towering and hulking figure, the 6-foot-5-inch Duncan also was known for his deep voice.
A Chicago native, Duncan went to college at Alcorn State University in Mississippi with plans to major in communications, but he dropped out and moved home.
In his 20s, he worked digging ditches for Peoples Gas during the day and as a bouncer at night. He told CNN in 1999 that his coworkers at the gas company called him “Hollywood” because he’d often talk about becoming a movie star.
“I’d be digging a ditch and they’d say, ‘Hey, man, Bruce Willis wants to talk to you about a movie.’ And they’d just crack up laughing,” he said while doing press for ‘The Green Mile.’
“Those coworkers had no way of knowing how that joke would turn on them.”
In 1990, he decided to measure up his nickname and he moved to Los Angeles. He worked as a bodyguard then got a part in a commercial as a drill sergeant.
More roles followed — often ones that depended more on his 315-pound frame than his acting ability. He was a guard in “Back in Business,” a bouncer in “A Night at the Roxbury,” a bouncer for 2 Live Crew in “The Players Club,” and a bouncer at a bar in the Warren Beatty film “Bulworth.”
In 1998, he landed his first significant movie part, playing Bear in the film “Armageddon,” where a crew of drillers from an oil rig save the Earth from an asteroid.
“Armageddon” was the beginning of his friendship with Bruce Willis. They appeared in four films together. And it was Willis who called ‘The Green Mile’ director Frank Darabont to put in a good word for Duncan.
In the Oscar-nominated film, Duncan played John Coffey, the huge black man wrongly convicted in a Louisiana town for the rapes and murders of two white girls. Coffey has supernatural powers, though; his hands can heal, even bring back the dead.
A microcosm of faith, Coffey is a messenger of hope and lost hope who develops a relationship with Tom Hanks’ character, a guard named Paul Edgecomb.
Film critic Roger Ebert wrote that Duncan’s performance “is both acting and being.” Ebert tweeted Monday that Duncan was “A striking screen presence.”
Duncan was nominated for an Academy Award nomination for best supporting actor, which was won that year by Michael Caine for “The Cider House Rules.”
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, who starred with Duncan in the movie “The Scorpion King” said on Twitter: “When something happens, we always say it happens for a reason … Michael Clarke Duncan 12/10/57 – 9/3/12 I’ll miss you my brother.”
According to the Internet Movie Database, Duncan had two completed projects that have yet to be released on a nationwide basis. He is slated to appear in “The Challenger,” a boxing movie written and directed by Kent Moran. He will also appear in the Robert Townsend film, “In the Hive,” about an alternative school for boys who have been kicked out of other schools.
One of his co-stars in that film was Vivica A. Fox.
“My heart is shocked and saddened!! RIP Micheal Clark Duncan. U were the most gentle giant and the most gracious of a man! U wont b 4gotten! ” she tweeted.

It’s no secret, New York isn’t one of Lil Wayne’s favorite places to visit. Tunechi has expressed his feelings about performing in the city before, but when Weezy told MTV News earlier this week that he doesn’t like the Big Apple his comments caused quite a stir. Why now? Why didn’t Lil Wayne’s detractors come to light when he first told New Yorkers how he felt about doing shows in their town?

It was July 22, 2007, when the YMCMB juggernaut took the stage at the Beacon Theatre for his first headlining show in New York City. MTV News was on hand to shoot the show, and watched as Wayne got searched by police upon entering the venue. Once Tune finally took the stage, he expressed his frustrations to the crowd.

Lil Wayne’s feelings toward New York are nothing new. Yet, when Tunechi told MTV News this week that he doesn’t like the Big Apple, it sparked a public outcry. But in fact, the very first time Wayne made his distaste for NYC known — there was no outrage at all.

It was July 22, 2007, when the YMCMB juggernaut took the stage at the Beacon Theatre for his first headlining show in New York City. MTV News was on hand to shoot the show, and watched as Wayne got searched by police upon entering the venue. Once Tune finally took the stage, he expressed his frustrations to the crowd.

“Let me tell y’all somethin’: I just went through the worst f—in’ feelin’ ever backstage with y’all security and y’all police,” an aggravated Weezy said as the crowd cheered him. “So, I’m here to tell y’all this will be one of the only times you’ll see me on a New York stage, the way they’re treating me right now.”

The sold-out Beacon showered their rap hero with applause as he tore through his set rocking a vintage Run-DMC T-shirt. Outside of the venue, however, rappers feuded with police. Juelz Santana, Jim Jones, DJ Khaled and Kanye West were all on hand to rock with Weezy that night. “Going into the show, I felt like I was going to prison,” Khaled revealed to MTV News later that year.

But for Wayne, leaving the show was the worst part. After the concert, his bus was searched by police, who arrested him on charges of gun possession. Wayne eventually pleaded guilty and was given a yearlong sentence. In 2010, the rap star served an eight-month bid in New York’s Riker’s Island. It seems obvious that the Big Apple holds a ton of bad memories for the MC.

So when MTV News caught up with Wayne on Monday in Las Vegas, and he told us, “You know, flat out, I don’t like New York,” it was clear to us that he wasn’t referring to the city’s citizens or the rap community.

In fact, Wayne went on to say how he had an “awesome” time performing in the city with his YMCMB protégé é Nicki Minaj during her August 14 show at the Roseland Ballroom. Still, DJs at NY’s Hot 97 radio station — who have been carrying on a feud with Weezy and Nicki Minaj — charged that the multiplatinum spitter had disrespected New Yorkers and fielded a number of calls from riled-up listeners.

New York State Sen. Malcolm Smith took things a step further and held a Times Square press conference on Wednesday demanding that Tunechi apologize to the city. But we’ll probably see Tha Carter X before we see Lil Wayne say “I’m sorry.”

T.I “Go Get it”

ATLANTA — No matter the drama, Cash Money CEO Bryan “Birdman” Williams is riding with his artists. Never one to indulge in rap beef, on Friday (June 15) during an interview with MTV News, Stunna made it clear that he is in full support of Drake in the aftermath of Wednesday night’s brawl in a New York City nightclub that involved Chris Brown and members of their respective crews.
“Well, to me, I think n—as got Drake twisted. A lot of n—as be playin’, pitty-pattin’ with Drake. I don’t like that sh–, period,” Birdman said to us in an exclusive interview. “Drake is one of us, so if you f—in’ with Drake, you f—in’ with us, period!”

Birdman Has Drake’s Back

Birdman wasn’t in attendance when the fight broke out at W.I.P. in NYC, but firmly believes the Take Care MC did nothing wrong. Drake alleges he wasn’t involved in the melee, which left a number of people injured including one of Brown’s bodyguards and NBA player Tony Parker. “To me, Drizzy ain’t did nothin’ wrong, he ain’t done nothin’ wrong to nobody. He just doin’ great music,” Bird said in defense of his artist. “He’s not a reckless guy out there just wildin’ out; he’s a humble kid makin’ great music.”

Drake Vows To Outdo Summer Jam At New York Show

It’s no secret that the #1 Stunna is about his money, and to him, beef is bad for business. “We never been a brand to carry ourselves in any foul manner. None of us, none of the acts,” he said of his Cash Money roster. “We’ve been doin’ this, we want to do this for another 20 years.”

Still, the CM CEO understands how quickly things can get out of hand. He recalls a time where shootings weren’t uncommon between warring factions but now sees those types of altercations as a thing of the past. “It’s a different era, and we don’t promote that, we’re not about that, but I think sometimes sh– get outta hand, and you just gotta be ready for it,” he said. “We did enough of that, so these n—as ain’t got to do it.”

On Saturday (June 16), rumors of an imminent Drake arrest were circulating on the Net but an NYPD official confirmed to MTV News that were “no arrests” looming, adding that an “investigation is ongoing.”

Nasty Nas New Album

Is anything you’re doing brand new? Good, cause 2012′s a year of self-realization and self-activation. Maturing perspectives are making crappy old things look shiny and redeemable. Case & point: Nas’ rebirth. There’s a softer and more huggable side Mr. Jones is showcasing nowadays that has little to do with weighty politics and revolutionary warfare, just a simple request, “This is my life retrospection —feel me for a second.” And needless to say, I do.

In celebration of the new album “Life Is Good” dropping July 17th, 2012, I took the time to pry further into the heart on Nas’ sleeve nowadays and picked a few love lessons we could all toast to. (No I didn’t pirate the bootleg, just sharing my observations as of late. Ha!)

1. Reflecting Vocally On His Failed Relationship

There’s only but so many things a man can say after his public marriage dismantles into a debris offinancial f-ckery. If he’s not spewing out a tirade of 4-letter damnations, he’s emotionally hyperventilating and mums the word. In any event, for the broken hearted man vulnerability hour is far from public viewing. But Nas, comfortably situated in his own skin welcomes the intrusion. On thecover art for his upcoming album “Life Is Good”, he’s sitting on a black sofa with his ex-wife’s green wedding dress draped across his knee (bossy Kelis abandoned it when moving out). Why Nas? “You can see my life on that album cover… love, joy, anger, celebration.” Oh yeah! Almost forgot, reflection and acceptance are default options after love’s made a fool of you! It’s a bit on the high road but certainly in the horizon if you step on your tip toes and grow up. Yup, it’s there– peaking with the sunrise of a new day. Thanks for the light Nas.

2. Recognizing That Girls Gone Wild Are Birthed By Fathers Gone Missing

Overheard: “Coincidence is God’s way of remaining anonymous” which makes the reality of womanizers’ eventually nutting out daughters damn funny! (Bwhahahaha!) It’s a silly, ironic, circle of life, soothsayer forewarned realization  that some men tend to miss but I’m glad that Nasir took the time to grafitti the writing on the wall in his latest single Daughters: “They say the coolest playas and foulest heart breakers in the world. God gets us back and makes us have precious little girls.” It’s like one of those Snapple under the cover fun facts that you knew, but forget you knew: Every woman in the world is someone’s daughter… marination moment. Before her evolution to f-ckme pumps (in wayward cases, clear platforms) there were the doiley trimmed socks that one man found to be darlingly delicate (or should have). Nas playing connect dots between the roles of Pops + babygirl vs. hubby + wifey nudges everyone to fix their posture and remember that everything is everything. Yup, Hooters wings are delicious until you have a daughter…

3. He’s Still In The Running For The “Bag Your Chick” Award (Ha!)

Okay honesty hour, Guerdley wasn’t a happy camper when she first saw the Nicki Minaj “Right By My Side” video featuring Nas! Eeek! Not my finest hour, I know. But really, 1.)  I’m totally one of those chicks in an imaginary relationship with Nas (can you tell?) 2. Seeing him slob down a shoe in for the “Black Girl Lost” album art cover had me looking at my man type hypocritical (sorry Barbz!). But after reciting some scriptures I learned from my anger management classes (kidding but kinda not!) I found a silver lining to anchor my rage –reality. Yes, in reality that vid was such a good look for Nas’ humble sex appeal. Nicki was so happy! Like giddy school-girl, sophomore who’s bra strap was just signed by her teen bop crush happy! For all we know, that vid was an excuse to recreate an intimate moment she had with her wall poster 15 years ago, so you kinda have to be happy for her! Mean time Nas was just laxing around with his signature chill. Dude might as well have yawned, nothing to be overly excited about, just comfortably situated in the obvious facts of the matter, “Yes, I bag those…. If and when I want to.” And every now and then, a little stuntin’ is in order –especially after marital hiatus. Exit swag. Enter swoon.

4. Carrying On Tradition

That’s really the gist of his whole feel nowadays: Love comes and goes, but wisdom doesn’t as long as you exercise it. Love, like life, doesn’t get any easier, you just get better at it. It’s an option that’s almost always eclipsed by other show-boat emotions — rage, denial, fear. If we always look at love like a crash course realization to a secret aspect of life, we’ll always live to love another day, unscathed. Yup, sounds like a good life if you ask me…

How you guys feeling about the softer die of Nas? Are feeling the new messages? Do you think they’re long overdue? Say what you need to say @wwmdtv
