Ya know what time it is....it's 730 ! 3/24/ 2006
I really cant
wait for Monday to come. Then youll finally get to read the Ghostface
interview. I put the Ghost right up there with the GZA and Saigon
interviews and I really dont even big up my interviews even though
I probably should because this Hip Hop shit is so corny that if someone makes
one small move, its like they call everyone over to look at them. You
know how when a kid is growing and doing things for the first time and they
call everyone in the house over to watch them put the square in the square peg,
thats what these rappers do too. I really dont care what magazine
or radio show anyone gets played on because at the end of the day, its
really based on who you know. I highly doubt that all those promo cds
that get sent out ever get fully listened to.
The biggest surprise last week was that I got all the interviews in on time.
With the tourney on all last week, I really didnt think there would be
any interviews ready for last Monday or the Monday coming up well I surprised
myself. Do you hear that sound? Thats me patting myself on the back.
Young Jeezy was allegedly in a shootout. That is not good. I think now
would be a good time for Jay to step in and protect his most valuable asset.
Theres obviously a reason 50 has all that security and it would probably
be a good idea to start protecting Jeezy more. His street credibility is already
established so he doesnt have to do any more time.
Im not talking about Jeezy here. This is just looking at the overall state-of-mind
that fans are in. Isnt it wack how street credibility makes up for a lack
of talent? Like if a dude doesnt have any flow or lyrics, all you really
have to say is, Well, he sold a lot of illegal substances and was incarcerated.
Oh word? I take back what I said about his lyrics being sub-par.
Yeah man, this song is banging! I like how he rhymes glock
with lock. Fucking awesome.
Why is Joell Ortiz still unsigned?
Now that C-Murder is free, its going to be interesting to see what
happens between him and Master P. If you go back to our old interview
with C, it definitely sounds like there is some tension between him and P. Itll
It looks like no rappers are really running the streets of New York.
A coyote was running around Central Park and had to be subdued with a
tranquilizer. Where are all these superthugs with their Acme? Apparently the
Roadrunner was sleeping so wouldnt you think one of these rappers could
have just blown the coyote up with their bazooka? Maybe not, I heard there was
a DVD filming that night and they needed as many guns as possible there.
It looks like Puffy didnt cover all his bases on Ready to
Die. Usually when you cut corners, it will come to light, even if it does
take twelve years. And dont blame the Ohio Players, its not their
fault. But even if it was the Ohio Players that forced the album to be pulled,
could you really blame them? Theyre from a different generation so chances
are, Biggies music didnt affect them like it did like it did to
the kids today. And if you had work that you really cherished, would you really
want someone else looping it and adding different drums on top of it? I know
I wouldnt. How would dudes like Just Blaze react if some techno DJ took
Breathe and sped it up and added all these drums on top of it? I
bet he wouldnt be too happy, and I also think Hip Hop fans may be a little
angry when they see that DJs album in stores with his Breathe
remix and hes making mad money off of it. I know the main argument of
all these Hip Hop purists is that sampling is Hip Hop, but there has to be some
sort of line. I mean, this is 2006 and there are mad producers out there making
original compositions. At the end of the day, doesnt it look a little
wack when someones best beats wouldnt have existed if someone else
didnt make a dope song first? Yeah all music is built off of the music
that came before it, and if sampling can be done right then of course its
Thats about it for this week. If Im not as angry as Ive been
in the past, I apologize. Im still hyped about Duke and North Carolina
being eliminated. No matter how messed up my bracket is, at least we dont
have to watch Duke win again. Most of you have to be happy about that. I like
UCLAs chances right now but Ill leave the basketball to Clark
