Bugs & Al Sharpton

The Reverend Al Sharpton’s National Action Network has issued a response in regards to recent allegations that he was on some extortion ish:

“According to Bruce Williams, a confidant of Dr. Dre and author of the recently released book Rollin’ With Dre, Sharpton allegedly demanded $500,000 dollars from the mega-producer to end The Game’s feud with 50 Cent, or NAN would organize a march and boycott.

Here’s an excerpt of the statement:

“‘The National Action Network and Reverend Al Sharpton were not involved with and did not attend a press conference held by Hip-Hop artists The Game and 50 Cent to announce their truce and donation to charities,’ a representative for Reverend Sharpton [said] a statement. ‘At no point has Reverend Al Sharpton or an authorized representative of National Action Network met with Dr. Dre.'”

Wow, say it isn’t so Al. We’re not saying that he did it, but if he did, he could at least retire that hot comb and hire a real hair stylist once and for all.

    Whoa Al! He should definitely get his conk game back up-his hair hasn’t been looking good lately.

    Al’s got to get paid too, I guess.

  • I'm Just Me

    I don’t know if I believe this at all. I think this book writer is trying to get paid. I was listening to Game on Wendy Williams and he was trying to start mad shyt with this. If this was supposed to be about Dre he needed to keep it about Dre. What is what the name dropping Bruce?

    Well shoot, the man gotta make a living somehow. I always wondered where he got his money.

  • as seen on t.v.

    you know it always made me laugh that al sharpton when asked why he wore his hair that way he said it was a tribute to james brown…this was before jb died…

  • jimecap

    $500,000 to end a feud between 50 and Game? Please…For that kinda money he should be ending the Iraq war.

  • Chaka

    Al extorts money from large companies all the time. That’s how he and Jesse Jackson can afford to run around the country doing their various deeds.

  • Prophetess

    Preach jimecap!

  • Realmatic

    of course he shakes every body down. Just like the Reverend Jesse Jackson. These are our “black leaders” that so many of you blindly follow. Remember that Tawana Brawley made up story…didn’t that fraud tell you something about this man? Everything he does is bs. The whole Rutgers basketball thing. He specializes in shell games and red herrings…while you’re looking over there at some bulls**t he’s working over here grabbing the cash.

    Learn the game dummies.

    @REALMATIC……….100%COSIGN. I am always bringing up Tawana. I think many bloggers are to young to remember the case but they need to do their homework on ole Al. I have more of a problem with him kicking it at Jay-z’s 40/40 club on opening night in Vegas. He is hanging around all these hip hop stars who are responsible for SOME of the most negative images of blacks today.

  • dre

    do u see why i dont belive in activist… aka al shaprton rev jackson shady motherf&ckers!!!!!

  • Whatchaknoaboutdat?

    Jessie n’ Al are two very shady individuals that always seem to jump on the bandwagon when there is a big case with big dollars attached at the end. They expect at least a 10% donation to their organizations for being a part of a cause which will keep them going. I beleive that they both wanted to be “like” MLK and be great leaders for black people. But it seems that they’ve both fallen so short of that no matter how hard they tried…. their just too darn shiesty.

  • Bubothehater

    Al is dirty as all get up. He got caught on tape buying cocaine, mad eup the Tawana Brawly story and now oes back taxes. Go away Al.
