“The Hangover 3 is the ultimate backward engineering,” says its director Todd Phillips. Hip-Hop Wired got some interesting and sometimes rap-related intel about the creation of the latest (and allegedly last) film from the comedy franchise via its stars and behind the scenes players.
While in Las Vegas, we got some insight from actors Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis and even Ken Jeong aka Mr. Chow. We also got word from Phillips that a certain Detroit rapper inspired the name of one of the film’s new characters. Also, did you know Alan (Galifianakis) is a big time Hip-Hop fan?
The Hangover Part III is in theaters today (May 23). But before you check out the film, get a look at 7 Interesting Things To Know About The Hangover Part III on the following pages.

After speaking on Kanye West’s “New Slaves,” Kendrick Lamar converses with Sway about Molly. If you watched Kendrick’s music video for “B*tch, Don’t Kill My Vibe” all the way until the end, you’ll remember the black screen with white letters that spelled out “Death to Molly” that appeared. Sway asked the Compton emcee what he meant by it. K-Dot explained he’s aiming to “keep hip hop original and push away the corniness.” From his perspective, Molly is corny because of its false portrayal by artists and a bad trend because of the complacency it has set on hip hop.

Chief Keef is no stranger to criticism. Whether it’s for his brash and violent lyrics or ongoing legal woes, you have to figure the 17-year old Chicago rap star has heard it all. Still, that doesn’t mean that Sosa was just going to let a Katy Perry jab zip passed without addressing it.
Days after Perry expressed her distaste for Keef’s “Hate Bein’ Sober” single, the Finally Rich rapper had a few choice words for the pop star. “Dat b–ch Katy Perry Can Suck Skin Off Of my D–k,” Keef wrote on Twitter on Thursday (May 23). “Ill Smack The Sh– out her.”
Though he caught on late, the GBE rapper’s tweets was in response to a message Perry sent out back on Tuesday. “Just head a new song on the radio called ‘I hate being sober’ I now have serious doubt for the world,” she messaged on Twitter.
Keef seems to be so put off by Perry’s message that he plans to take things into the studio and record a new dis track aimed at the “Wide Awake” singer. “New Song Katy Perry Coming Soon,” he wrote.
On Tuesday, the same day that Perry sent her tweet, Keef was released from Dekalb County Jail in Georgia after being arrested for disorderly conduct. “Jus Got Out Of Dekalb County jail in Atlanta Mad As f—,” he wrote on Twitter accentuating his message with an array emojis.
On Sunday, MTV News was on the set with Keef and Gucci Mane as they filmed the video for their new single “Darker.”

President Obama responded to the news that four Americans have been killed in drone strikes since 2009. In a speech Thursday (May 24), the commander in chief defended the counterterrorism efforts but called for better tactics limiting civilian casualties.
Attorney General Eric Holder presented the list of deaths in a letter to Congress this week.
In the defense, Obama explained that the report has unearthed a deficiency in the system. “America is at a crossroad,” he said. “We must define the nature and scope of this struggle, or else it will define us, mindful of James Madison’s warning that ‘No nation could preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare.”
The deceased came from different backgrounds, including one person born in Saudi Arabia, but a citizen of the U.S. ABC News reports:
The names of the Americans killed by drones had previously been classified information.
Samir Kahn was the publisher of Inspire magazine, which Anwar al-Awlaki edited. Abdul Rahman al Awlaki was Awlaki’s son.
Jude Kenan Mohammed was on the FBI’s 10 Most Wanted List and was believed to be plotting a car bombing on the 10th anniversary of 9/11. On July 22, 2009, he was indicted in North Carolina for conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists and conspiracy to murder, kidnap, maim and injure persons in foreign country.
The decision to target Anwar al-Awlaki was “subjected to an exceptionally rigorous interagency review” and approved by Holder and other Justice Department lawyers, Holder wrote.
Holder’s letter, released before a speech by President Obama, represents the administration’s most specific statement of policy on drone strikes against Americans.
Stating, ”We must define our efforts not as a boundless ‘global war on terror’ — but rather as a series of president, targeted efforts to dismantle specific networks of violent extremists the threaten America.”
Hoping to “facilitate transparency and debate on this issue, and to dismiss some of the more outlandish claims,” the POTUS believes the reveal will better protect innocent victims, but his attempted optimism wasn’t so well received.
From Yahoo News:
Obama was heckled at length by Medea Benjamin, co-founder of the anti-war group Code Pink and a leading (and highly recognizable) critic of the so-called war on terrorism.
“Can you tell the Muslim people their lives are as precious as our lives?” she shouted as she was finally ushered from the hall. “Will you apologize to the thousands of Muslims that you have killed? Will you compensate the innocent family victims? That will make us safer!”
After trying and failing several times to get her to sit quietly, Obama went off script and enlisted her protest to reinforce his message about the need to close the Guantanamo facility.
“The voice of that woman is worth paying attention to,” the president said, to applause. “Obviously, I do not agree with much of what she said. And obviously she wasn’t listening to me and much of what I said. But these are tough issues. And the suggestion that we can gloss over them is wrong.”
Drone strikes have of course not only cost the lives of U.S. Citizens, but countless children and other innocent victims in the Middle East.
Last year Lupe Fiasco criticized the president for ordering the attacks.

Located on Newport Beach south of Los Angeles on the sun-soaked California coast, Almond Surfboards & Designs is one of the premier destinations for SoCal surf style as it offers everything from graphic tees, fleece, and caps to wetsuits and more. However, at the backbone of the brand remains its penchant for handcrafted surfboards with a seemingly endless array of shapes and sizes available via the brand’s web store.

Set to an appropriately laid-back tune by The Red Fox Tails, the lengthy piece follows the board from its initial shaping to painting, the application of its fin, and all the way to a glossy finish. Custom editions of the American-made Lumberjack are available to purchase online.

"106 & Park" host Bow Wow reunited with his ex-girlfriend Angela Simmons for lunch at Bar Pitti earlier this week.

”Everyone Involved Will Be Contacted By My Attorney”
It was reported earlier this month that former Jay-Z protege Foxy Brown was planning to reveal secrets about the hip-hop superstar’s former life. Accusations included Jay spending lavishly on young Foxy early in her career, her contracting an STD from Jay and his supposed love of transexuals.
But Foxy is now claiming that the entire report was false. She issued a statement to TMZ saying that someone fabricated everything.
“The atrociousness of this story sickened me to my stomach. Any and everyone involved will be contacted by my attorney.” Foxy says, “In all my years in the music industry, these are the most disgusting and disrespectful allegations I’ve ever experienced. This fictitious story … with NO audio, visual or written interview, clearly was concocted with malicious intent.”
“Jay has only been wonderful to me and my family, a great friend throughout all the years I’ve known him and we had nothing but great success as a team,” she added. “Beyonce, his wife, has always been gracious and sweet to me … I will NOT let any undercover hater create discord and disrespect my name and reputation.”
The Nike Free Alt Closure enhances foot security by using both a black elastic exoskeleton and blue hyperfuse material across the grey mesh material. A black midsole separates the upper from a Nike Free 4.0 sole that gives the lightweight shoe added flexibility. This minimal sneaker will hit shelves in the coming months.
