Welcome to GUY CODE, the official blog of MTV2's "Guy Code" series and your online destination for all things dude, including—but not limited to—irreverent commentary on sports, hip-hop and ladies. Stay awhile and flex your manhood.
Most guys would be rather excited, upon entering their bedrooms, to discover two women getting it on. But when Joe Budden had that experience, his feelings were mixed -- because he was dating one of them, and they unfortunately didn't invite him to join. (Dude, you can still enjoy the show, even if you're not the leading man!)
Tuesday night marks the premiere of "Charlamagne + Friends," a special one-week series leading up to the VMAs on Sunday, August 25th. It's Charlamagne Tha God's chance to unleash his provocative commentary and interview celebrity friends from the world of hip-hop. In the clip below, Nick Cannon (in cartoon form) recounts the time he survived a crash in Jay Z's aircraft...even though they hadn't yet left the ground.
Today marks the start of the 14th annual Gathering of the Juggalos, a five-day festival that draws Juggalos and Juggalettes from all over to Cave-in-Rock, Illinois. It promises "spectacles unlike anything you've ever seen before," so this ain't your grandma's festival: rappers, comedians, magicians, freak shows and, of course, the Insane Clown Posse.
As Tila Tequila was actually pelted with bottles, rocks and human feces at the 2010 festival, you could say the Juggalos are a tough crowd, so it takes serious bravery to get on stage. We asked comedian Jared Logan, who's about to perform at the Gathering for the first time, for his thoughts on this momentous occasion.
First of all, would you consider yourself to be a Juggalo?
I am a Juggalo.
Like a card-carrying, makeup-wearing Juggalo?
I've never worn the makeup before, and I don't think they give out cards, but I'm intrigued by their message and I think it's one that we should listen to -- that's why I decided to do the show. Because I wanna hear what they have to say. I wanna become part of the madness.
What would you say their message is?
It can be an angry message. I think it's a section of society that people don't often really listen to, expressing their anger. Kind of talking about the state the world is in, which is not a good state, and I respect people doing that in the bloodiest, goriest, most violent way possible. I respect that.
Shopping is every guy's least favorite activity. When you do buy a product, however, it's gotta be the best of the best. "Mansumer Reports" will keep the junk away from your junk.
The NBA Finals just wrapped up, but the park basketball season is just heating up. Being a 5'9" small forward who's not afraid to miss an easy layup, I knew that if I were going to impress people on the court, it'd probably have to be with my shoes. My old kicks were Shaq Boy's See Ya's in a size 8.5 (there is no connection to penis size!), which looked like this after many, many games...
In "Shake That, Baby," featuring "Girl Code" regulars Tanisha Long and Jessimae Peluso, the guys show their love for the ladies...the pregnant ladies. Sure, morning sickness isn't a turn-on for most of us, but maybe we shouldn't think of that bump as a gut -- let's think of it as a giant third boob. Watch the video below for some Cesarean seduction:
Vine confused the Internet masses when it launched. "Are they like GIFs with sound?" everybody asked. "Why not just use YouTube?"
But Vine has thrived, thanks to our poor attention spans, and also thanks to some brilliant users who are capitalizing on its viral frontier with consistent posts. Brace yourself for Vine's elite cast, including rappers, artists and comedians...
Tyler, The Creator
Tyler puts his ADHD and sense of humor to great use on Vine. It's all good until he berates you on the street...
This might be our favorite episode yet of Damien Lemon's web comedy series "D.Lemon in the Morning," because he's joined by fellow "Guy Code" cast member Charlamagne Tha God, who's playing MC Crime Scene. Every cop in the city is familiar with this hardcore hip-hop legend -- Crime Scene autographs his own mugshots and wanted posters -- but he still can't get any respect from Damien's co-host...and disaster ensues.
Watch the video below, and catch Charlamagne on "Girl Code" Tuesdays at 9:30/8:30c on MTV:

Excuse Guys are the worst. These dudes "would be" chasing their dreams if they just knew the right people, or didn't have to work so much, or lived in a better place. Instead, they walk around miserable, pissed-off that life didn't deal them a better hand.
DON'T BE THAT GUY.
With the Internet and affordable technology, you no longer need to be rich or connected, or live in Los Angeles to make a movie or be in Nashville to record a country song or be in New York City to perform comedy. And if you want to be involved in a scene of like-minded people, start your own! More than likely, there are other people around you who like the same thing; they're just waiting around for someone to take the first step.
For example, would you have guessed there is a passionate hip-hop scene in southeast Alaska? It's not just the land of ice and snow and dogsleds and whale-blubber lamps. There are talented rappers there like Manner and Phonetic, who in 2010 started Word 2 The Wize -- a nonprofit organization that produces battle events and hip-hop shows around Southeast Alaska, Anchorage and all the way down to Wyoming.
How many rappers are there in your Southeast Alaska scene?
