What the fuck? Dude straight killed him because of a diss in a rap battle. Let me get on my Allen Iverson....its just a rap battle. A rap battle. We're talking about a rap battle. A rap battle. Dead...for a rap battle. A rap battle...we're seriously talking about a rap battle.
Okay, I like Young Dro's raps. There I said it. You should admit it too. Dude is an A-Town lyricists. He is a monster with the pen simple and plain. He has mastered his style to the point that if you get on a track with him, he will embarrass you. He has done it to, T.I.(though thats the closest match), Hell Rell, Big Kuntry King (anyone can oust him), Young Jeezy, Slim Thug, and just about anyone else he has done a song with. You just can't compete with his wordplay and imagery. Take note all southern rappers. This is how you can be crunk and hip-hop.
My wonderful graphics have made it in the Source magazine. Apparently The Source has rededicated itself to Hip-Hop. That might be a good look because I havent bought a Source Magazine for years. Ever since Benzino I have been super cool off of their totally biased opinions. Well I have been doing some graphics for the super popular NYOIL out of New York, and his new mixtape got some pub in this months issue with Snoop Dogg on the cover. Its a good look for real hip-hop. Plus my cell number is super visible which is kinda hilarious.
Okay so here is the question that every person that does music eventually has to ask themshelves. "Is it time to call it quits yet?" This music thing is a who you know business nowadays. It used to be that the good music rises to the top, but in the wake of the "Umma Do Me's" and the "Dunn Dunn's" its clear that quality music is a thing of the past. So as a producer/rapper/promoter/graphic designer, I constantly evaluate my progress and ask myself if its time to quit yet.
As a youngn I promised myself that I would never quit. I still hold true to that. Unfortunately a lot of people around me have fallen out of the race. I wont name any names for fear that they dont know they have fallen out of the race, but when i talk to them all i hear is excuses. Cats have started families, and thats all good, but sometimes that causes people to work harder, but sometimes it forces people to stop. I have no children and no wife, because I chose to put those things aside so i can properly chase my dreams. If not then I will be struggling working for someone else the rest of my life. If i short change my dreams the only person I really hurt is myself.
I imagine that Samuel Jackson could have quit a long time ago. I have never seen a young Samuel L. Jackson. Get the picture? If not then start a family and imitate the cosby's. Stay out of rap altogether and leave it to the people that are serious. If you feel this blog is a personal attack on you, it's not. If you feel this does attack you, then re-evaluate your shit. If you need me, I will be on the grind. Holla at cha.
Sometimes when you go to a concert you will hear something that totally touches your spirit. This is a very common thing that happens when you are in the presence of good music. About a month ago I went to a N*E*R*D* concert and was completely amazed. First off Chad, and Shay were there and Pharrell had incredible energy. I was upset that they didnt perform "Provider", but there performance of "Run to the Sun" made me truly appreciate the song. I have loved this album since the first week it was released, but for some reason this song never jumped out at me until they performed it. Now I can't stop listening to it.
I hate to be considered a hater, which means nothing nowadays. If you have any opinion that is negative that means your a hater. Anyway I think Teyana Taylor is wack. I'm sorry. Just cause you did a Sweet 16 episode doesnt mean you have talent. I listened to "Google Me" and it was trash. I listened to "Swaggg" and it was "Trassshh". Just stop doing music please. Or dont release music until youve found your voice. Stop trying to ride the wave. I dont care if Pharrell co-signs you. I though Fam-Lay was trash too (Sorry Trackstar). Check the song and let me know what you think. The link is from http://www.rockthedub.com/ shout outs to Khal.
This by far is my new favorite slang word. There is no better way to describe something than BROLIC. Ex. This chick that keeps walking by my desk has a BROLIC ass. Tef Poe knows what I'm talking about.
You already know what it is. Trackstar the DJ is the hardest working mixtape DJ in St. Louis. Period. He drops straight mixtapes, not cds with 20 different songs with drops all over them. You want authentic music, look no further. This jawn is hosted by Chaundon and Vandalyzm of the Hall of Justus. Props to the designer (me shameless plug). Til BOOGIE BANG 14. Peace.
Okay seriously now, this fashion thing is getting out of hand. I understand the importance of brand recognition and things like that. If I'm wearing sneakers its gotta be Nike's. I enjoy the brand. I like Gucci shoes, but I don't wear em. Why? Is it because I can't afford em. Partly. I dont buy things to fit in or live outside of my means. So why do so many people I know who have less than me breaking their necks to wear these brands they cant afford. Why do you make 10 dollars an hour but your wearing Gucci shoes with the Gucci shirt. That leads me to believe one of two things, one your an over spending idiot, or two they are fake ass hell. Can you say Canal Street (my NY heads know what I'm talking about)? Remember Von Dutch? Cats were breaking their necks to cop some gear. Now what? You come in the club with that on and you will get laughed at. Next year when you rocking your outdated pair of True Religion Jeans, everyone will be laughing at you. Take my advice, stop hopping on trends and stick with the fashion companies that have been tried and tested. The Ralph Laurens, and so on and so forth. No one really cares about your 300 dollar Evisu jeans. You cannot keep up with Jay-Z so stop trying. I will see you at Burlington. Lol.
You don't understand the situation like I do. Its obvious. If you did then you would be outraged. This dude is a convicted felon. I repeat, convicted felon. He doesnt just have handguns, this nigga has an arsenal of weapons. If this was just Clifford from the Westside you would be like this nigga trippin. Lock his ass up. But since he is a rapper of notoriety he is lawless. His lawyer confirmed that he is off house arrest, and on a curfew. While I am happy that a black man beat the system, at the same time he only beat it because he had money. Not because of his innocence. This is bullshit. I cant wait to get money. Im wildin out. Nigga I'm lawless. Holla back at me with your thoughts.
Okay, real talk, Shaq's ex-wife Shanice is fine as shit. I would have worked that shit out. "Oh you got another bank account, cool, we rich bitch!!!!" Unfortunately there were unreconcible differences. No biggie Shaqs one of the greatest players of all time he can get something better. Or maybe not. He was at his birthday party with the chick in the first pic. They appeared like an item to all. She's not ugly she is just regular. Especially coming from Shanice to that. Its not real in my opinion. What do ya'll think?
