MTV Names Gucci Mane Mixtape Artist of the Year

Even while behind bars for a probation violation, Gucci Mane is still one of the hottest acts in hip-hop. 2009 was definitely his breakout year, and due mostly to his string of guest appearances and definitely his mixtape grind.

All those mixtapes were became so popular that MTV names the Atlanta rapper the Mixtape Artist of the Year for 2009, a title he probably deserves.

"It always feels good to be recognized by the streets," Gucci told MTV this week from jail. "That's where I come from, that's where I draw my music from. That's my inspiration. It also feels good be recognized by MTV, [being someone] coming from the streets."

According to MTV, Gucci's bread and butter has been the mixtape circuit, with an estimated 150 songs landing on numerous unofficial tapes sporting his mug on the cover.

Much like Lil Wayne, Gucci's consistent work ethic has helped him build a huge buzz, which has resulted in high profile guest appearances on tracks with Mariah Carey, Usher, Trey Songz and others.

The rapper broke down some of his most popular mixtape titles this year with MTV. Here's what he had to say:

Writing on the Wall (with DJ Holiday): "I started recording that Writing on the Wall the day I got outta jail," Gucci explained. "It was a couple of hours out, and I went straight in and recorded almost half of that mixtape that day. Most of that material I wrote right on the spot. Maybe two or three songs I had wrote in jail. But the whole experience of everybody coming to support, it was like a party outside the booth. I wrote like I was participating in the party. I stayed in there and spit what I was feeling. I made 'I'm Back" that day I made 'Game' with Juice. It was a great time for me. I had a lot on my mind. After that, I kept working. After Writing on the Wall, that's when it all started."

The Movie 2 and The Burrprint: The Movie 3-D (with DJ Drama): "I feel like The Movie 2 was one of my best mixtapes ever," LaFlare declared. "I didn't put the campaign forward like I did the Writing on the Wall. It was a great collection of songs. It was better than some of my albums. The Burrprint, it was great mixtape. It was humorous, entertaining and my flow had elevated on that mixtape. So I went real hard by the time I made the Burrprint." (Get your copy here)

The Cold War Series: Guccimerica (with DJ Drama), BurrRussia (with DJ Scream), and Great Brrritain (with DJ Holiday): "I just like to say thanks to Scream, thanks to Holiday and thank to Drama," Gucci announced of the three DJs that helped put his box set of CDs together. "When I presented them with the idea, they was all for it. One day, me and Coach [K] was in the studio recordings songs. I came to Coach; I had a idea, 'Let's do three mixtapes in one day.' I had the titles before I had the music put together. A lot of people tried to follow after me and do the same thing. I appreciate them trying to do what I do. But I don't want to give the misinterpretation that I had a lot of music out there, and I was just getting rid of it. Half was done. The other half I finished when I had the titles. I had maybe enough for one mixtape. I had 13 songs per mixtape. So, in three days I did like 16, 17 songs and split em' all up. That's how I made the mixtape.

"I'm rocking with Drake," he added about getting Drizzy on Guccimerica. "Both of us did our thing this year. It was fun going back and forth with him. He had some ideas for what beats he likes. I had some ideas for producers. We was chopping up ideas. It was challenging, any time you work with an artist that's very creative, it's challenging and it steps everybody's game up." (Get Guccimerica here, or BurrRussia here, or Great Brrritain here)

Outside of mixtapes, Gucci's major label debut The State vs. Radric Davis is in stores now. The album earned the rapper his first top 10 debut on the Billboard 200, landing at no. 10 after pushing 90,000 copies in its first week.

Others to be honored with mixtape honors by MTV included Drake, who won Mixtape of the Year for So Far Gone, while 50 Cent, Lil Wayne and Lupe Fiasco were all runners up; and DJ Drama earned Mixtape DJ of the Year.

Husband Infects Wife With HIV By Pricking Her With Sewing Needle While She Slept


An HIV-positive man infected his wife with the virus because he wanted to start having sex with her again.

The 35-year-old injected his blood into the sleeping woman, who had refused to have a physical relationship for a year after discovering he was carrying the virus that causes Aids.

He pricked her twice with a sewing needle laced with his blood, believing the pair would be 'equals' once more. But he was behind bars in New Zealand today awaiting sentencing after admitting infecting another person with a disease.

The husband had emigrated to the country in 2004 with his wife and two young children, none of whom can be named.

Immigration officials found he had HIV, but his wife and children did not, during compulsory health checks.

The woman, 33, confronted her partner on discovering she was infected a year later.

She said: 'All he said was he was sorry. He told me "I used needles on you because I wanted you to be the same as me so that you can live with me and you won't leave me".'

She told the court: 'I just wanted to maintain the relationship for the sake of the children...He insisted on staying and mentioned that he was not worried about sex...any more. All he wanted was to see the children grow with both parents under one roof.'

But in May last year, she said, she discovered a sting-like mark on her left thigh. 'After having a shower I put some lotion on myself and I could feel pain on my thigh. When I looked at it, it was turning red like a circle, getting and bigger.'

Later that morning, when she returned home from her nursing studies unexpectedly, she said, she saw her husband in the bedroom with a syringe full of blood.

When she asked him what he was doing, he pushed past her and walked away, refusing to discuss it. The wife searched a rubbish bin for evidence of the syringe but found nothing.

The paper reported that two days later the wife woke to a stinging feeling in her leg. 'In my sleep I felt a prick on my leg I got up..and I flicked the blankets...I looked at (the husband) and he was wide awake.'

She said she asked him if he had pricked her and he said he had not. But later she found evidence of 'blood sprinkles' on their duvet, which, she said, her husband tried to hide from her.

She told him to leave the house - and in September, when her doctor suggested a test at a routine check-up, she found she was HIV-positive.

A nurse who had been in contact with the family and who was present when her GP told her the bad news told the court: 'At this meeting (the woman) was beside herself with emotion. (She) could not work out how she had got HIV because she stated that she had not had sex with her partner for about a year.'

Later, during a meeting with an infectious disease specialist, the husband cried and repeated: 'Please forgive me.'

The Sunday Star Times quoted Mr Simon Harger-Ford of the New Zealand Aids Foundation as saying that the organisation had never heard of a victim being infected in such a way 'and with such intent

Tupac Song Added To Vatican’s Official MySpace Playlist

Tupac ShakurIf this isn't an indication of how influential the late Tupac Shakur, and his music, is ... and was, then what is?

A song from the late rapper's catalog was recently included as part of the Vatican's official MySpace Music playlist.

According to CNN, the seat of the Catholic Church released a list of 12 songs onto the social networking website's streaming music service this week when the site launched in the United Kingdom.

Tupac's single, "Changes", was one of the tracks, alongside selections from Mozart, Muse and Dame Shirley Bassey.

"The genres are very different from each other, but all these artists share the aim to reach the heart of good minded people," the Vatican wrote on it's official MySpace Music page (

As of Friday night (December 4), "Changes" had been played more than 4.7 million times on the site.

Reports indicate that the list was compiled by Father Giulio Neroni, artistic director of church publisher St Paul's Multimedia. He was also responsible for compiling the Vatican's recent Alma Mater album, which combined Gregorian chants and prayers with classical music and the voice of Pope Benedict XVI speaking in five languages.

More than a decade after his death, Tupac's music continues to influence the world.

He was gunned down in a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas on September 7, 1996, and died days later (September 13) in University Medical Center in Vegas as as result of the gunshot wounds.
