First off, if you haven't read the GZA interview, go read that and come back
to this. The problem with the GZA interview is that everyone who respects the
art has already read it, but the kids that listen to the radio for the newest
diss tracks and all that probably didn't even skim the GZA interview. They're
the ones that need that interview the most! Even the most seasoned Heads could
learn a few things from that interview, but all these dickhead kids who think
'Pac and Biggie started rap need to get a dose of the realness. Props to GZA
for a dope interview.
You know what movement I am real tired of right now? The Stop Snitching movement.
I think if we start a "Stop Committing Crime" movement we won't have
to worry about snitches.
And rumor has it that someone snitched on Sheek Louch and that's why he got
arrested last week. I think Sheek and his crew do enough to indict themselves
every time they pick up a microphone. I wouldn't be surprised if the police
chief's son was bumping the album and he overheard some of the lyrics I
think the real problem in rap is that everyone is snitching on themselves. Check
your own lyrics first
And another thing, you know how in middle school you always had those few kids
who were always talking about how much ass they pulled and everyone knew they
weren't getting any? Those kids grew up to be this high-quality crop of rappers
that we get to listen to now. Stop glorifying all that shit, expecially if you
don't do it. Not everyone has to be from "the streets" and make "street
So Jay and Nas squashed their "beef" and got together on stage. That's
great and all, but let's see what really comes out of it. And another question
that needs to be asked is if this is because Nas and Jay really want to save
New York, or if they both see how much money 50 Cent is milking the game for.
I'm sure the concert was real dope to be at, but the big question is if it's
going to go down as just a dope night or if real change is going to come out
of it. Let's hope that shit wasn't just a one-night stand.
And how about Dame Dash getting sued for stealing the "Ultimate Hustler"
idea? Does anyone else see the irony in that? You're making a show about being
a hustler and you hustle the idea off someone else. I say if the dude suing
Dame wins his suit, he should definitely be crowned the Ultimate Hustler.
You all know that I'm sick of a lot of things in the industry. My new gripe
is the way albums are promoted. How are you going to make an album, and then
have "featuring (insert C-grade Def Jam artist here)" and "production
from (insert name of producer who might have done one or two mixtape tracks
for a major artist)." Just because someone may have done a track with 50
Cent in the past does not make them a dope producer. And if you really believe
that promoting the cameos you bought is the best way to promote your album,
you're a fucking cornball. Albums are your chance to give people yourself, not
a fucking compilation. If you want to do a compilation, make it a compilation.
Shit just seems so corny right now
I got a press release the other day that DJ Wats is changing his name to "Watsman."
Make what you will of that.
And get off my back with that "how come you don't like Kanye West?"
shit. What I respect about Kanye is his work ethic. Best work ethic in the game.
Think of how many producers out there have more talent than Kanye, but they
don't have the grind. Kanye is proof that hard work goes a lot further than
raw talent. What I don't like about Kanye though is the way he conducts himself
in public. I've gotten into that enough in the past so I don't think there's
a need to get into it again, but seriously, can you see anyone else throwing
a tantrum over not getting an award. 3rd grade soccer players have more sportsmanship.
Anyways, the long overdue Trife da God album is finally dropping. That's one
of the only albums I'm actually looking forward to.
Download the new Hip Hop Disciples Part 14. Poison Pen definitely laced it like
a new shoe with some bangers. Thanks to everyone that already got it.
