Where yall dudes get yall facts from? Buck was never signed to Cash Money. He was signed to Juvies UPT. And people question y people going to baby cuz he rips off artists... Wut other rap CEO got 3 or 4 artists on the Forbes list? Lol I don't mess with dude, but yall professional bloggers gotta keep it 100. If yall gone talk about money, then yall gotta keep it all the way real. Even when BG said baby owed him money, BG admitted he was mad @ a $300,000 check from the cash money/ruff rider tour when baby grossed 14 million. BG wasn't even platinum. How many rap artists platinum, gold, aluminum, or washed up today banking half a mill? How many of them on the Forbes list? If yall talkin money, then I would sign with cash money too.. 90% of them dudes publishing ain't worth the advance baby give em in the first place. That goes for Buck too. I don't listen to cash money, but I rather buy a cash money catalog than listen to yall bloggers Dick ride ur favorite artists and hate on the next one like some scorned women. Yall probly would sign with birdman too lol.

Let ray j sing the right hook... I'm thru with fab. He will forever have an asterisk next to his toughness until he slap the ish outta ray j. Fab know street rules. His team called street fam. They slapped kat stacks for talkin reckless but he did an interview about how Willie Norwoods son didn't even throw a blow. ESPN voice. C'mon Man

I guess I'll comment since my city involved. When Wayne first came down here they had wanted posters with blood drippin @ every strip club. Wayne thought it was sweet then came outside to see his brand new phantom on fire. (He even mentioned it n a song) So after that, they knew they needed a hood pass so they did the song with red eyes to keep them Zo's happy and they signed Brisco (who's pass is so so since he got robbed, rapped about it, then testified) Birdman street and business smart tho. The hood know he dropped cash in one of our hoods after that phantom incident. My city lookin kinda shady right now compared to when jay t money and trick was our face bcuz I remember method man and red man comin thru studio 183rd showin love. Dr dre got robbed down here and that's y him and luke beefed. But this is a clear case of when a cousin invites someone over to ur house who u know dog on well would've been sized if he stepped foot on your lawn. When this univited guest keeps comin over and eatin up the food and goin str8 to the fridge w/out askin, that cousin is supposed to check him b4 the home owner snaps. In this case that cousin is ross lol and we know wut time it is. Funny thing is, this is gone last a few more years and these underground rappers who really out there goonin gone check the softest one n their click then ish gone hit the fan... With that being said, r.i.p Torro. Home team know wut I'm talkin bout. Oh yea, and since Drake is jumpin in his bosses beef, y not jump in that beef with jay z and prove u really are a true soldier.. cuz luke was clearly thinkin bout our sufferin neighborhoods. Jay z is more of a threat than Luke's statements.

I agree with Luke. Bottom line is, if your neighbor is struggling, lift them up. He's right on so many levels. D'wayde has the summer groove weekend that he took over for Zo where the proceeds go to our foster children down here (dwayde from Illinois).... I don't even think I heard him say money. I heard "show up", "influence", "participate" etc... So many comments on here that I won't even reply to but one misunderstanding about the notion that they're not from here y are they obligated to help.... Wut if Martin used his influence to only fight for equal rights for the neighborhood he was from? And did we really expect the whites and Latin to fight for us? Help your neighbor. Love them as yourself. It'll go a long way.

TypePad HTML Email Maybe two outsold Cole? Lol. Im not talking about just first week numbers, Im talking about overall album success. Im talking about those CEOs attempts to come down and hustle with their artists in order to introduce them to the world. Vado is the only one who didnt drop, but I see cam put out a joint album wit em etc in his attempt to introduce him. Nicki didnt have no buzz until she got with young money, bcuz when she was with Gucci dem nobody even mentioned her. When she went on tour with young money and jeezy thats when Wayne signed her and she started rapping like Wayne and playing barbie and that is when everybody pretended they knew her in her underground days lol. But as far as Cole, to me 200 is ok but it doesnt reflect his potential. Especially if Drake who everybody used to compare him to on this site does close to gold if not gold n his first week just bcuz his LABLE HEADS made sure Drake was an event and not just an artist. I didnt even wana get into a dialogue about Jay thats y I didnt mention his name. I was just commenting on j Cole and mentioned his label could have really pushed this dude to the forefront while he hustles to do his music. Everybody wants to see good artists sell as much as fad and gimmick artists but it looks like the fad and gimmick artists machines are..... Nevamind..... Well see.

TypePad HTML Email Just thinking back to some freshmen. Look how Cam presented Juelz. Look @ his attempt to introduce Vado. Look @ how they introduced dipset. Look how Wayne introduced Drake and Nicki. Look @ his attempt to introduce young money. Look how fif introduced game, banks, buck, yayo and olivia. Look @ his introduction of G unit. This says more about u know who than it says about Cole. Cole been ready. I dont wana bash u know who so Im not even going to go into detail bcuz thats not wut this is really about. But Cole is supposed to be up there right now. The more I think about these so called high numbers I just analyze his label head more. I hope he gotta good structured deal bcuz this cat has a lot of potential to outgrow his surroundings. Even Melonie Fionna. They are very good artists. Ill leave it @ that. Cole couldve made a much bigger splash than a lot of these freshman out here. I hope it pays off.

They were supposed to drop him when he was going neck and neck with Drake. I'm happy for him, but to me those numbers are low bcuz he had three good singles. Who dat, blow up, and hit it in the morning. Two years of being on mtv, bet, magazines, hip hop web sites, blog's and touring with jay z, no id and kanye studio sessions, these cats had a chance to have a platinum freshman who to me can blow Drake and wiz outta the water. I do believe Cole is here to stay tho.

TypePad HTML Email I agree. Those battles were good to me in a sense they felt like real legitimate beefs and those cats were creative enough to paint the picture for us in the form of rap. I dont do the mainstream either. Even the r n b mainstream is garbage. I just pop in my music I grew up on, and Im good. I dont even hate the new era of rappers and I wish them all success. Im actually happy to see them sell albums. but one day somebody from my generation is going to jump on the scene and give em that real shit again and hes going to make the money biggie and pac shoulda made and its gone be hell. Until then, Im still in 93- 96 lol. And so is whoever jump n my car.

TypePad HTML Email I feel ya. Im street first, rap second. I dont find any of this talk about each other in the name of rap/hip hop entertaining. I bet if these cats lived by the streets first and stopped rapping about each other outta respect or fear that ur going to have to deal with it the same way we deal with it in the streets SUBJECT MATTER AND CONTENT will increase @ an alarming rate. But since its always compared to a sport rather than the art of our people expressing the ills and goods of our communities to a world that has turned the blind eye to what we go thru, then ur gonna continue to see these clown ass artists remain @ the fore front of rap just bcuz they know how to play the sport more than they and other artists know how to rap. In real life we the consumers get chastised for what we say and do. Our best rappers got the same thing and thats y theyre the best forever bcuz they brought real life to rap from every angle and thats y we felt them more than we heard them.

TypePad HTML Email Yea I rather hear battle raps than two bar disses. I mean like real back and forth freestyle battles. Other than that, I dont care for disses or diss songs bcuz these cats try to make their diss songs sound like its real beef with them and another artist and when these cats are in the same room their soft ass actions take away from the actual diss song. So if rap is a sport, battle. Other than that I like what jay z said, im prayin one day it spills out of the booth (even tho those were just words he doesnt live by either). Keep the comments about the next mans moves out of your song. That way when we hear a real diss song we know its for real and its worth paying attn to. I guess Im still stuck in the 90s. Im still bumping doggy style and all eyes on me like they just dropped so I know Im a lil out of touch with rap game rules right now.

Well Wayne has responded to 50 before. He responded twice matter of fact. But I doubt he responds to this bcuz he and everybody else now knows that fifty does this for attn. I mean look, if those lines weren't in there this song woulda went unheard as decent as it is. But Wayne did say "got tired of hearing bout the homey sangin, copped the album got damn every song he sangin" don't feel like going into the other song bcuz that's the one where he took a swipe @ nas. But will Wayne go and make an entire song over two bars from fif? Doubt it. Game might feel he needs to, but even he doesn't. Fif made the same statement everybody else has made after the VMA's.. I'm pretty sure Wayne's mama asked him wtf was he wearing that nite lol. if u ask me, that SOHH article about wut Wayne should wear went harder lol.
1 reply
I liked a few of those fif songs. Sounds like he's trying to go back... As far as the disses, they weren't really disses more than attention statements. We know u wrote games hooks, we know Wayne wears tight pants and skateboard. Pple knew that b4 the r.e.d album and the carter album dropped. So I don't think it was a diss from him. I think fif knows how to get attn and that's wut he was looking for.

TypePad HTML Email Your exact words were casey Anthony? Why blk ppl so quick to pull da race card, what about the white supremacist who was executed today as well? Did the system fail him too? Those were your exact words @ 5:56am this morning. I addressed that. And never once in my response to you did I compare Casey Anthony lol.. I responded to you saying blk ppl pull da race card and then u used Russell as an example and asked if the system failed him. Im not that good @ blogging and maybe this is another language that Im having a hard time interpreting, but hopefully u understood the points I was trying to make. Im probly going to leave a few more comments this week bcuz this new phone I got is kinda fun rite now, but hopefully the cats who are on here all day everyday will make good use of their comments bcuz for the most part pple show how dumb they are and how much hate they have for a lot of celebs. @ least you and illmatic brought up a good enuf convo that I felt was decent enuf to respond to. But hopefully my points were understood.

TypePad HTML Email Ok compare Casey Anthony to OJ (if u believe the victims didnt get a fair trial), but dont compare Lawrence Russell Brewer to Troy Davis. And to deny racism exists is equally as weak as crying Im black, Latino, or white and treated unfair. Sometimes race does play a factor in how people are treated and judged. So does sex, looks, weight, appearance etc. Prejudices also exist. It goes both ways. I see it with our president. I see the same people who hated bush bcuz he blatantly turned a blind eye to poor and minority people give barack multiple passes just bcuz hes black. Our communities are still in the same shape, we still have police killing face down, hand cuffed, unarmed black men (oscar grant, YouTube it) with little to no consequences and the president that we stood out for hours to elect doesnt murmur a word in these peoples defense. but he sat down and had a beer with the police officer and the Harvard professor like that was going to patch up the issues between the police and our communities. But racism exists homey. It exists amongst numerous people, and since the justice and judicial system is made up of people, of course its going to exist there also. Some people are dumb and commit dumb crimes and no way do I defend stupidity. That doesnt mean I dont have the responsibility of not turning a blind eye to address whether or not our system is neglecting to sentence and punish each individual fairly regardless of race, sex, social status etc. People believe Troy Davis didnt get a fair trial. Whats sad is that in their attempt to neglect him a fair trial, the officer who was killed didnt get a fair trial. Neither did Caylee Antony. Thats y people need to rally for fair trials bcuz everybody loses. Comparing Russell (white supremacist) to Davis? Wow

Bcuz Russell was convicted beyond a reasonable doubt. Him and his two friends dragged byrd after they beat him and his body parts were found @ 75 different places. Those three dudes never said they were innocent. They even gave testimony to how they killed him. They debated he was dead b4 they chained and dragged him bcuz they slit his throat, but they saw evidence that byrd was conscious and lifting his head while they were dragging him. Troy Davis's case was based on witnesses in which several of the witnesses stated they were forced to give their statements and a few of the witnesses named troy Davis's friend as the shooter. People are speaking on this case bcuz there is a possibility that he wasn't the killer and the justice system knows it but ignores it. And black people don't always pull the race card, sometimes we verbally acknowledge when our card is pulled and hid under the table and the dealers continue to let everyone play their hand as if everything is normal. But like I said, Russell and his two friends were given a fair trial, proved guilty beyond reasonable doubt, described the murder and how it happened. Troy Davis along with witnesses, former president jimmy carter, the pope Benedict and others proclaimed they are putting an innocent man to death. Blog on.

LOL another 4 for ray j and deduct another .5 from fab
1 reply
TypePad HTML Email I didnt take away points from fab after the dinner where he played it cool. But in the club when this man came back and put his hands on me? Im sorry bruh, u gettin your ass beat right then and there. And my security better be on point bcuz a lot of cats may start shootin outta pure fear alone. ( thats probly y fif said he didnt know ray j approached him earlier. Bcuz fif know fabs team wouldve been well within their rights for dealing with ray however they wanted) But Im sticking to my point system. When ray j got too loud that wouldve been my Que to drag em. But once he put his hands on me!!!?? Floyd said it best... Open season protect yourself @ all times The story that mediatakeout posted wouldve been a true story and I wouldve been justified even tho I started it by my Twitter thuggin

Lol fif say ray swung, but it wasn't enuf to call a punch. Lol.... But I guess ray wasn't beaten and relieved of his jewels and fab didn't have a messed up eye. If ray wouldn't have went crazy on the radio he would've gotten more points for me on the simple fact fab said something on Twitter againnnn and ray j checked him for it.. So looking @ the overall situation I give ray j 3 points, but I gotta take away 2 points for the radio interview not being 100% true. I give fab 1 point bcuz I don't think he was scared. But I take away .25 of a point for talking on Twitter and I deduct another .25 for allowing ray j to touch him and not hitting him after the first time ray touched him. So ray j 1 point and fab .5 of a point. Fab fire ur security and manager since they work for fif more than they work for you. How he tell your employees to sit still and they do? Lol. What happened in Vegas should've stayed in Vegas this time.

Did ray j apologize to fab or his fans?

So witnesses report there was a fight between ray j and fab. Ray j confirms it by saying he hit fab. Fab comes out and says there were no swings. So the witnesses and ray j are lying? Or fab is lying? Nothing happened? "Dont u know my nigga gutta kidnap kids, f%=k em in the a$$ throw em over the bridge" - Notorious B.I.G. "Look so good make me wanna suck her daddy's di(k" - Notorious B.I.G. Lol. I guess that's my comment on this incident. R n B singer vs Twitter Thug rapper.
