It's hard to think about exactly what you would do right before
you are set to got to jail for three years. But, that is precisely
what Breihan did in his piece on Prodigy last week,
It's hard to imagine what I'd do if I only had a few weeks before I had to go upstate to start serving a three-and-a-half-year sentence. But I know some things that I probably wouldn't do. I probably wouldn't film a YouTube rap video where creepy demon-kids sing the alphabet and I smash a cop's head in with a broken TV. I probably wouldn't launch an ungainly social-networking website to promote an album that wouldn't be in stores until I was behind bars, and even if I did, I probably wouldn't use that social-networking website to write long all-caps blog-posts about how tough I am. I probably wouldn't even bother with recording a Koch-rap album in the first place. I'd probably just curl into a ball and wait for my life to effectively end, which just means that I'm not Prodigy.I keep forgetting that P is about to go to jail, and Breihan
just goes ahead and reminds me.
F-ck an apology give me the cash. I learned THAT from Japanese folks.
See, the rule is the same when it comes to slavery, injustice, or rappers
trying to atone for their past mistakes.
Speak with them benji's or HUSH.
David Banner knows that I am talking about , He gets right to the
point when he when he speaks on Master
P and his new found, ahem awareness,
It's crazy to become a multi-millionaire off the backs of people and then turn around and attack the way that you made that money. If you really sorry, then give some of that money back. If you made eighty million dollars, give forty back if you really sorry.How does the saying go, put up or shut up?
I am not feeling the buzz for the new Clipse mix tape.
I bugged Gotty for 8 months for We Got it for Cheap II.
That sh-t was so uninspired. And trust. I am not another writer
just talking yack out my @ss.
I KNOW THAT Making tangible art is hard.
The fact that I have been trying to churn out short stories for
the past month has re-acquainted me with the challenges
associated with trying to make something tangible.
I think I am the biggest Clipse fan I know.
I adored Hell Hath No Fury. It got me through some uber rough times.
However, I am not looking forward the We Got it for Cheap III Mixtape.
The thing about The Clipse is that those Skateboard beats
mesh lovely with their rhymes.
It just sounds tired hearing them over other people's beats.
I guess I can ride for optimism and look forward to a
second quarter Clipse album.
Flo-Rida is so ignorant and good. On Gotta Eat, he sings,
Dammit Im proud to by my own bag of weed,
find me a ho', to help plant my seed
I got bail money they f*ck with me,
'Cuz, in my hood, erry n-gga gotta eat.
and the fact that n-ggas gotta eat. God Bless Amerruca.
Any body who sings proudly about "having they own
weed" is egregious in my book. Breihan put wrote
about Mr. Rida last late last year saying,
Flo Rida is from Florida and he rides flows, see?) "Birthday" found its way to a few mp3 blogs and scraped the lower end of Billboard's R&B charts, which seems about right. But "Low" is practically the same song, except with T-Pain doing the chorus instead of Rick Ross (a tremendous improvement, admittedly), and now all of a sudden it's huge. Judging by those two tracks, Flo Rida is a decent enough technical rapper who knows how to ornament a beat without getting in its way, but he shows basically zero personality on both tracks, and I'm not sure I could pick him out of a lineup. I hadn't even heard "Low" before its massive iTunes debut. So how does this happen? How does an indistinct, relatively unknown rapper suddenly end up with the best-selling song in the country?
The simple answer is T-Pain, whose pop-charts dominance is getting scary.
T-Pain's dominance isn't scary, in fact its directly connected to
Roger of I Wanna be Your Man fame. Roger never
had to opportunity to sing hooks on a years worth of Hip Hop
singles. Yet, T-pain has and consequently is a branch
on the Roger meets Nate Dogg tree.
Why they always play " I Wanna be Your Man" at the end of the party?
Why do mixtapes suck?
Flo-Rida, ye or ney?
