I was checking
the comments on the Ghost interview. It actually surprised me that people said
it was a wack interview. Sorry, I just don't see it, and I'm not saying it because
that's my interview. Shoot just about every interview on here is my interview,
and some of them really make me cringe. But not the Ghost interview. He may
not have gone into as much depth as GZA, but not everyone is going to. I think
the interview pretty much captures Ghost's state-of-mind at the time, and that's
what good interviews do. A) He's been on the road for a long time and B) wouldn't
you not feel like talking if everyone was jacking elements of your style and
Def Jam used your single as a means to market Usher Junior instead of what Ghost
is really about? Hell, his bonus cut featured another Def Jam signee, which
is not cool in my opinion. Bring in someone like Carl Thomas or Maxwell. That
shit would have been crazy. Or even Goapele. But Neyo? Come on Ghost isn't
going to appeal to most teenagers because his shit takes more work to understand
and the generation coming up now is like the AIM generation. I think Jaz said
it best when he said people have memory of a goldfish now, and besides, how
many teenagers really want to go back to "Supreme Clientele" and "Ironman"
and see where shit came from? The ones that do are definitely in the minority.
You know what I'm
tired of? Everybody having an artist. Why does everyone have to have "an
artist"? Everyone. The Domino's driver even has an artist. "My artist
this, my artist that." It really sounds like some homo-pimp shit if you
ask me. Look at the way the word "my" is thrown around. It's never,
"I work with an artist." It's always "my artist" or "my
producer." I don't think people even realize how compromising it is for
DJ's to have their "own" artists. If you're a major DJ, would you
want to fill your slots with your artist or another kid standing on his own
two that's way better than your artist. Deep down, most people know "their"
artists are wack and will either ignore or diss everyone else they know deep
down is better than what they have. That means there could be a million kids
spitting better than DJ Dickhead's artist, but they'll never get heard.
It's looking like
Busta Rhymes is going to help push Papoose to the next level. I think the case
of Papoose should show everyone that even with major New York radio play, you
still need more. How many mixtapes has Papoose dropped? He seems to have a lot
of fans, but where is he going as an MC?
Jackson wants to work with 50 Cent. Well, that's all according to Whoo Kid.
Whoo Kid is very good at making people talk, but I'm not going to believe that
until I see it.
So Benzino and
Dave Mays are really out at the Source. It's looking like the Source wants to
repair their relationship with 50 Cent. My question is, why would 50 Cent even
care about it? He obviously took over the game without the Source and doesn't
really need them to make his money. 50 Cent doesn't need the Source, but the
Source definitely needs him. Same with Eminem. His career never stopped after
he stopped getting coverage in the Source. There are far too many mediums out
there now, and you have to get in the right combination of outlets to really
make things pop.
I was watching
the games the other day and one of my roommates was blowing his nose. I didn't
think anything of it until the snorting became rhythmic. I look over at him
and the motherfucker is blowing his nose into his hand and wiping it on himself.
Is that not one of the most disgusting things you can do? I get that your nose
may be a little stuffy and the Kleenex may be in the next room, but that doesn't
give you a license to turn your hand into a makeshift tissue. Thankfully that
dirty motherfucker didn't have any other bodily functions at the time.
I have to go hit
everything with the Lysol. If you weren't happy with the interviews this week,
I think you'll definitely be satisfied with next week's batch. More Wu Tang.
That's all I'm going to say.
