NBA All-Star Weekend


Says Powerful Rap Mogul

2/14/2014 12:35 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Word of advice to NBA players ... wrap it up TIGHT for All-Star weekend -- 'cause the gold-diggers are heading to New Orleans IN DROVES ... so says Mannie Fresh, one of the most powerful guys in rap.

Mannie -- who'll be judging a rap contest in the Big Easy this weekend -- tells TMZ Sports, "It's going down. There's gonna be a lot of chicks lookin' to get theirs ... ogling salaries."

He's right ... and one of the spots the wallet-chasers are sure to hit up is The Maison -- where Manny and  Portland Trailblazers stud Damian Lillard are judging the "4-Bar Friday" freestyle rap contest.

FYI -- Lillard created the "4-Bar Friday" challenge on social media ... where people post videos of themselves trying to spit 4 lines of a rap.

Tons of NBA stars have posted their best "4-Bar Friday" attempts online in the past ... including LeBron James, Paul George, Harrison Barnes, Draymond Green, and even Damian himself.


No word if all those superstars are hittin' up the party -- but Manny says one thing's for sure ... "There will be a lot of people with a lot of money."

DUH!!!!! This is ho Olympics time! Some of them have trained most of their lives for this moment. Who will get the bronze for sleeping with a rookie or sophmore & then sell their story to TMZ? Who will get the silver for getting knocked up by a baller? & Who will get the gold for actually becoming the side piece of a major star?? The record is currently held by Kim Kardashian!! Her transition to celebreality is their goal!!

Not nice to speak so disgustingly disrespectful of women; NO RESPECT provided at all. Wonder if this man was raised by wolves or another animal. By the way, who is this Fat, Funny looking, unattractive man; is he mad because he can't get laid even if he PAID. I would say someone like --- JayZ, Little Wayne, Eminem, Dr. Dre or Jermain DuPree could be considered powerful RAP moguls. Thank God I am married when Fatso men like him think ALL women are about money; I would hope even in today's society like back in the day...women want a man to be Handsome, Educated and Rich chasing them to let THEM believe they are the one's pursuing the women. There was a time when if a MAN wanted to do the "horizontal dance" . . . he would have to put a ring on it FIRST!
