The rumors are flying around that Jay may be the president of Apple music. Again, I’m puzzled as to when Jay became the go-to executive to have on your label. Jay’s a great rapper and has made some great investments outside of hip-hop music, but I’m really not seeing the results from the executive Jay.
If Apple’s buying into Jay, it’s purely for the name and the brand. It has to be, right? Could Apple really be buying into Jay for his skills as a music executive? Just because someone is a really good pilot doesn’t mean they should be designing and building planes.
Props to Yung Joc’s management team for this beauty:
“I have the utmost respect for the laws of this country and would never deliberately commit an act that would jeopardize my freedom, my family, or my career. I've worked very hard to achieve my goals, and it's unfortunate that this current situation has garnered more attention than the many donations I've made and the charitable work I've done with various organizations.
I'm proud to be a citizen of America, where we are taught to believe that every person is afforded the presumption of innocence. That being said, I have full respect for the judicial system and its due process. I look forward to resolving this situation and moving forward to a positive and prosperous 2008. Best wishes to you and your families in the New Year. Thank you."
This may be the best excuse ever for carrying a loaded gun into an airport: “It's unfortunate that this current situation has garnered more attention than the many donations I've made and the charitable work I've done with various organizations”
Yes, Joc, it is rather unfortunate that you carrying a loaded gun in a carry-on bag “garners” more attention than you giving out a few toys and turkeys. Way to take the focus off your mistake and turn it back on the media, like it’s their fault you didn’t realize you were putting a loaded gun through the x-ray machine.
Let’s be honest, we’ve all done stupid things when we’re in a hurry. One time I forgot to turn off my iPod and the battery drained as I unwittingly planned what I would listen to once I bought some candy and got on the plane. Another time I packed I forgot socks. One thing that never happened to me when I was traveling was me forgetting I had a loaded handgun in my shaving kit as I placed my backpack on the conveyor belt and got ready to take off my shoes. That’s another thing. If you forget to wear socks when you go to the airport and you have to walk on that disgusting floor that has more bacteria than Britney’s mouth on a good night, you get a pass – once. If I had the choice, I would probably rather get arrested for carrying around a loaded handgun in an airport than walk five steps barefoot through the x-ray gate.
And about that statement. Are we really supposed to believe that Yung Joc wrote that when he can’t even spell “Young” right?
“No pause, no homo,/when I enter n***** with that broomstick, slow-mo” – Beanie Sigel on “Go Low”
“Put the guard on punks, push the broom up they ass” – Beanie Sigel on “Barrel Brothers”
How glad are we that Beanie Sigel’s career as a rapper worked out and he didn’t end up as a janitor somewhere? You’d think twice before spilling that Coke and leaving that Snickers wrapper on the floor.
I was thinking Uncle Murder’s “Bullet Bullet” could be the biggest nightmare-inducing song of 2007 until “Go Low came out.
Random highlights from the Sean Price interview:
- Sean admitting he’s a fake vegetarian
- Sean admitting he likes the Youngbloodz’ music
- Sean saying “underdig” more than once
- Sean admitting that his wife can cook
Not a highlight
Sean admitting he took medicine for his throat. Why Sean P had to admit he is a mortal is beyond me.
You know what might be the worst job in the world? Being an aspiring rapper when you’re the son of a rapper. How would you like to be Sun God right about now? How would you like to do a song with your pops that makes the album and then when the album is finished, you’re listening to the album.
Friend 1: This is a good album.
Friend 2: Yeah, you did really good on that song.
Sun God: Thanks. Let’s go get some food.
Friend 1: Nah, let’s listen to the rest of the album.
Sun God: I really don’t think that’s necess-
Friend 2: Oh shit, did you pops just say he was giving your mom back shots?
Sun God: That was U-God.
Friend 1: That voice was way too high to be U-God.
Sun God: It was Cappadonna. He’s probably into that shit.
Friend 2: I think that was your dad. Can we rewind it?
Friend 1: Of course!
Friend 2: Hey, Sun God, your mom sounds awesome.
Friend 1: Yeah, I mean, I always thought she was cool because she let us have Sunny D. But this takes it to a whole ‘nother level.
Child rappers have it harder than we think.
I don’t know why Def Jam doesn’t hire Isaiah Thomas as their new president. Is there anything this guy can’t do? Not only does he know how to communicate with all the females in the building, but he also is completely delusional, which seems to be a prerequisite for anyone, from a rapper to a wannabe executive, entering the music industry. In case you missed it, Zeke said the Knicks were going to win a championship in the near future. He later admitted to riding unicorns in the offseason and hinted at an affinity for dancing with trolls that hide under bridges.
