Eminem makes Nielsen/SoundScan history

Eminem is the first artist in Nielsen/SoundScan history (which dates to 1991) to top the 700K plateau in weekly sales with four albums.

Recovery is Eminem's sixth #1 album. Among rappers, only Jay-Z has had as many or more #1 albums (11). What's more, Recovery is Eminem's sixth consecutive album to reach #1. That's the longest string of consecutive #1 albums (in which every charted album made #1) since the Beatles had eight in a row from Beatles VI in 1965 to the so-called White Album in 1968. (Eminem had seven of the 22 tracks on Eminem Presents: The Re-Up, which peaked at #2 in 2006, but that was marketed as a Various Artists album.)

This week's hefty total for Recovery pushes Eminem from #10 to #9 on Nielsen/SoundScan's running list of the best-selling album artists in its history. (He pushes ahead of Pink Floyd on this list, which reflects sales from 1991 to 2010.) Eminem has sold 36,519,000 albums, which makes him the top rapper on the list. He is way ahead of Jay-Z, who is #27 overall with sales of 27,888,000 albums.

Black Sheep unaware of Kia commercial

“The Choice is Yours” is in a new Kia commercial and some other classic hip-hop songs have been getting commercial revivals too. What’s up with the resurgence of golden era hip-hop in advertising?

I think it’s reflective of a time period of a certain level where it was good feelings. Certain songs just represent a good feeling and I think “The Choice is Yours” is one of those that was so fortunate to have that life. There are songs that⎯like with when Obama won⎯you knew where you were and what you were doing and “The Choice is Yours” is like that. I didn’t have any time to do any form of huge promotion globally so at this time that I got an album coming out, it’s such a blessing that so many people are turning their heads to notice, wow Black Sheep, what’s Dres up to? But it kind of goes to the walk of an artist especially from my era⎯everything was kinda young and this Kia commercial, I didn’t even have anything to do with it.

So you didn’t even know it was going to happen?

I wasn’t even contacted. I have yet to receive payment on it but don’t get it twisted, I will. I’ve been talking to Kia for the past week or two so certain things might be done moving forward in maximizing what we’re trying to do. But Universal, the record label, was basically the ones that signed off on it and gave them permission to use my likeness so that’s a different story that might wind up having a life of itself as well. I wouldn’t say that the label did everything that they were supposed to do but that goes to us being young artists and not understanding some of the things that we were signing. I would say to the artists today⎯and this is 20 years later⎯that I’m not the administrator of some of the things that I should be especially so far down the road. But God moves in mysterious ways and I see it as a blessing at the end of the day.

Lauryn Hill talks about her return to music..

Much to the relief of her fans, Hip-Hop veteran Lauryn Hill is looking to make her return to the music world. Sure, she has popped up in a few spots over the past few years, but the mega talented Hill hasn’t launched a full scale comeback in a little over a decade.  She released her classic debut album, The Misseducation Of Lauryn Hill, and then faded into the background.
Rumors about the reasons behind her departure from the scene have been swirling around the Internet for a while as fans tried to make sense of her absence, but during a recent interview, she herself explained why she walked away. According to the singer/rapper there were several reasons that led to her disappearance but ultimately she had to get some of her personal affairs in order.
“There were a number of different reasons (why I left),” said Hill while talking to National Public Radio. “But partly, the support system that I needed was not necessarily in place. There were things about myself, personal-growth things that I had to go through in order to feel like it was worth it. In fact, as musicians and artists, it’s important we have an environment -- and I guess when I say environment, I really mean the (music) industry, that really nurtures these gifts.”
“Oftentimes, the machine can overlook the need to take care of the people who produce the sounds that have a lot to do with the health and well-being of society, or at least some aspect of society. And it’s important that people be given the time that they need to go through, to grow, so that the consciousness level of the general public is properly affected. Oftentimes, I think people are forced to make decisions prematurely. And then that sound radiates.”
In related news, Hill is scheduled to perform during the Rock The Bells festival this year.  The event will make four stops; two of which are in California. The others are in New York and Washington D.C.

Eminem talks about being snubbed by MTV, "Forever", rehab, & scrapped Relapse 2 songs..

Em has a short chit chat with Vibe..I still wanna hear them Relapse 2 tracks goddamn it! :(

Days before his seventh album, Recovery, dropped, Eminem sat with VIBE for a short convo..

VIBE: How'd you feel about the response to "Forever"?

Eminem: The response was great. I didn’t really look it like I’m competing against these guys. I’m on a record with them, but I just wanted to make a good song. Certainly, the response helped, as far as me being able to feel good about myself again. It took me so long to just even be able to do that. I was pretty down for a few years. I went through some things and not just with addiction, some personal setbacks and I was down. Just being able to get back up again feels good. I think everything played a factor of where I’m at now.

Vibe: On Recovery, you have this one line on “25 to Life” where you talk about taking control of your relationship with hip-hop. How have you done that?

Eminem: What the whole song is saying is that I have a strange relationship with hip-hop because I love it so much. I go through this thing in my head a lot, which I’m sure every rapper does, where you give your life to this thing. You literally give everything that you got. I come to work some days wearing the same thing two days in a row—baggy sweats—just dedicating my life to this. And there are times that I feel like I get the respect that I deserve and there are times where I feel like I don’t.

Vibe: Like when MTV excluded you from their Hottest MCs of 2009 list?

Eminem: That hottest MC list that I was left off, it was one of those things that I was glad that I am at where I'm at. I’m glad I’m in this place now, because a few years ago I would've let it bother me more than it did. I took it not as a slap in the face but more so like, "Maybe I’m not on that list for a reason. Maybe I’m not doing the things that I need to be doing. Maybe I need to look at myself and step it up." I don’t know what I would have thought being in the mind state that I was in. I just felt like maybe I need to do better.

Vibe: As a person, are you proud of yourself?

Eminem: I handle things a lot differently now. I’m proud to be able to say that I’m an addict without any shame in it. I’m proud that I’m able to admit that I have a problem with a certain thing and I have to leave it alone and accept it. I’m proud that I’m strong enough to be able to walk away form those things.

Vibe: When did you realize that? During rehab? Therapy?

Eminem: I got some tools in rehab when I went in 2005. I got the tools that I need, I just didn’t use them. I got the information, the analysis—I don’t know if that’s the word—of my personality. What type of person I am, why I have this addictive behavior, why I need instant gratification from certain things, why I feel a certain way because my childhood was this way or that way. I got all of those tools, which made me understand why I had to leave that stuff alone. But I didn’t use it and that’s why I went back to it.

Vibe: Why did you decide not to release the songs you'd planned for Relapse 2?

Eminem: On a record like the new record, when I mention the third verse of “Talking to Myself,” I try to sum up the last two records in a nutshell. Mr. Porter, who produced “On Fire,” had this analogy of Encore and Relapse that stuck with me: “Encore I was on drugs, Relapse I was flushing them out.” His view on Relapse was that I was flushing the drugs out my system and looking back at it, I probably was. My mind was coming back, my writing skills were coming back, so I was able to write again because I had writer’s block from the pills. I was backed up. I was writing so much and so quickly that I didn’t have a chance to stop and say, Are these good songs? Are they great songs? I was just going. I was like, 'I got so much material for three albums, but let’s narrow it down to two. Let’s put out Relapse 2 months later. That was the original plan. There are so many drug references on the last album; that’s just where my head was at. I came to life again and everything was like new. When they say 'in recovery' or 'in rehab', it’s like being born again when you get clean and sober. You start appreciating shit that you never thought you would appreciate, like, 'Wow, look at those trees. Look at nature.' Before, it didn’t matter. I just started appreciating things more. I got happy when I got sober, broke free from the chains—not to sound corny. I broke free from the chains of addiction and it was just like 'Ahh, I’m happy again. I’m not a prisoner.' I was just happy to be back.

Fail Moment of the Week: Soulja Boy deletes his Twitter (Busby Rant)

(AllHipHop News) Atlanta rapper/producer Soulja Boy has deleted his Twitter account, after amassing over two million followers on the popular social networking site.

Although the rapper has yet-to-reveal his reasoning for deleting his Twitter account, the website was abuzz with the news, as the rapper quickly became a trending topic.

The rapper caught a lot of negative feedback from people on Twitter using the hash tag #ifsouljaboysarapper.

The move could also cost Soulja Boy thousands of dollars in lost revenue.

According to reports, Soulja Boy and Kim Kardashian were the highest paid celebrity tweeters, earning up to $10,000 per-tweet.

via: Allhiphop

Now when I first came on this site, I promised myself I will NEVER post ANYTHING Soulja Boy, Bow Wow, Lil B, or New Boyz related unless it is some EPIC fail shit. Trust me these dudes have ALOT of them in their life, and this one is NO exception. Soulja Boy is a straight CANCER to hip-hop, he is the leader of to all these bubble gum garbage, no flow, no lyrics, no talent ass niggas in the rap game right now. Call me a hater I don't give a fuck, this nigga is BEYOND garbage, and for him to push this shit in my face as actual MUSIC deserves a chin kick to the face HBK style.

Soulja Boy finally realizes that he has NO LL once said "99% of your fans don't even EXIST!" the 1% that actually like his music need to go jump off a a cliff. That trending topic needed to be made so he can finally see that NOBODY gives a fuck about his bitch ass. Hearing that he actually got PAID for twitting makes me wanna drive to San Francisco, go to twitter headquarters, and chest kick WHOSE EVER had the bright idea to pay that lil niglet. I wanna kick them in their chest on sum spartan shit, and before I yell it I say "THIS IS HIP-HOP!!"

Now I am hearing rumors that Soulja Boy is trying to go the Hov route and wants to quit rapping..Soulja Boy if you do, everybody in hip-hop will just..

Next on my shit list is his gay lover Bow Wow stay tuned..

Live action Dragon Bell Z done the RIGHT WAY..

All I could say about this is

Playboy files lawsuit for copyright infrigment on Drake

Playboy’s coming for 700%. Apparently, Heff’s company owns the rights to Hamilton, Joe Frank and Reynolds’ “Fallin’ In Love” which is sampled in the beginning of Drake’s “Best I Ever Had”. As a result, a lawsuit was filed against the rapper and Universal Music Group. According to Playboy:
[They] knew or should have reasonably known, that the sound recording was protected by copyright…” and that “each Defendant continues to infringe upon Plaintiff’s rights in and to the copyrighted sound recording.”

Damn..Another whomp whomp for Jimmy. Well they should have knew better to release that mixtape track as an official up Jimmy

Drake dissing Ludacris?..Calls him out for taking his siginature flow How much do Young Money artists bounce off each other? I noticed you have similar inflections and cadences or rhyme patterns. I noticed this one thing that Nicki said, “It’s going down. Basement.”

Drake: Well, that flow has been killed by so many rappers. And, I never want to use that flow again in life. [Laughs] I wanted to take if off my album, because I was like, “I shut ‘em down. Onyx.” I hate the fact that that rhyme is still in there. To be honest, that flow, you can trace it back to like…I trace it back to Big Sean (artist on Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music). That’s the first guy I heard utilize that flow throughout the duration of a verse. I’ll give him that credit. I think Kanye got it from him. Me and Wayne found a dope way to do it. I don’t want to sound cocky, but the best way its been used was on “Forever.” Those lines just all individually make so much sense. They’re all punchlines. Then a bunch of rappers started doing it and using the most terrible references in the world. I don’t want to offend somebody…I hate that rappers picked that flow up. I wish they had left that for people that know how to use it. [They go like] “It’s a parade! MACY’S!”

At that point, you never want to use it.

I see Jimmy putting his foot in his mouth again...Jimmy, what are you doing?, what are you doing?

MP3: The Fifth By Nero

BREAK!!!!!!!!! from all the MJ Posts... RIP and now back to the scheduled programing..

Yes, it has been quite some time since I last had a Nero post. Welp here is one. Nero drops "The Fifth" which is to be placed on his next project, Momentum. Check it out. I personally do not like some of the static feel in the track but the end is too serious. Nero goes in on some straight lyricism spit. I'm on play #7 as we speak, this track is so ill.

Production on this is beyond ill as well.

Was Recovery one big subiminal to Lil' Wayne?

Interesting read..

My good friend Jeremy was like Tom Hanks in the ‘Da Vinci Code’ these past few weeks with the new Eminem CD out, trying to point out a hidden message it contained. I was like ‘Get the fuck out of here!’ every time he tried to explain it to me, like he was talking straight ‘bull shit.’ Until I sat down with him and he went over every bit of evidence and had me buying that shit like it was a Google share at $2.

My good friend Jeremy was like Tom Hanks in the ‘Da Vinci Code’ these past few weeks with the new Eminem CD out, trying to point out a hidden message it contained. I was like ‘Get the fuck out of here!’ every time he tried to explain it to me, like he was talking straight ‘bull shit.’ Until I sat down with him and he went over every bit of evidence and had me buying that shit like it was a Google share at $2.

Let me introduce this theory by recapping the background between Shady and Weezy. During Em’s hiatus, which was the time Wayne was at the top of the rap game, Wayne expressed interest in doing a song with Eminem but was blown-off by the rapper who was in recluse. Rumors circulated that Em was plotting a record dedicated to diss Lil Wayne, which Eminem even acknowledged in this latest album, “I almost made a song dissing Lil Wayne.” As Em began his comeback he attributed his slights at Lil Wayne to his drug abuse, and ended up collaborating with him on ‘Forever,’ and ‘Drop the World.’

So why would he diss Lil Wayne now?

First things first, lets go over Eminem’s approach towards this album. Basically Em has created a world within this CD by making ‘hip-hop’ the coveted object he is vying for amongst the rest of the rap game. He makes it obvious in the song ’25 to Life’ about the setbacks that come with being a famous rapper. The other not so obvious metaphorical representations of ‘hip-hop’ being the object of affection is ‘Seduction’ what seems to be referring to his ‘mack’ and how he can take your girl in an instant, but that girl is actually rap, just like it was in ’25 to Life. The lyric to kick the song off “I feel like I’m morphing, into to something so incredible that I’m dwarfing all competitors” is one to consider, but another one that is the convincer “There’s a 7-disc CD changer in her car, and I’m in every single slot and your not.”

For all of those people that still think he’s stuck on Kim, he only refers to her once. The songs ‘Space Bound,’ and ‘Love the Way You Lie’ are about the connection Em has with ‘hip-hop,’ not his ex-wife.

This world that Em sharpens up with his mind-blowing imagery is the key element in the CD to tie everything together. Notice there are re-occurring figures throughout the album, from celebrities like Michael J. Fox, and Elton John, to the multiple references towards fruits, and animals, to the biblical references, the seasons like winter and fall, holidays like Halloween and Christmas, superheroes, the need to refer to every bit of currency, motor-vehicles, and every component of time from, second, minute, day, year, light-year. Basically all of the components that would make up any sort of society. And if you think it is a coincidence let me reiterate the redundancy of the usage of these terms, each term occurs more than once, sometimes a lot more than once.

The two prominent figures in this world, which could be described, as the ‘Land of Hip-Hop,’ which Eminem has created in the CD, is he, and Lil Wayne.

Now pay attention.

The smoking gun in all of this is Lil Wayne’s verse in ‘No Love.’ Everything Lil Wayne said in that verse was used by Shady and taken from its simple layers that Wayne fashioned them with, to more extensive complex expressions Eminem used them with, almost as if to say ‘Anything you can do, I can do better.’

Exhibit A: Wayne starts out the verse, “Throw dirt on me, and grow a wildflower, but it’s FUCK THE WORLD, get a child out her.” Eminem in ‘Not Afraid’ says “Forget the EARTH HE”S GOT THE URGE TO PULL HIS DICK FROM THE DIRT, AND FUCK THE WHOLE UNVIVERSE.” Also, Wayne says he’s “Married to the Game” in ‘No Love,’ and Em says the same thing in ‘Not Afraid.’

Coincidence? Maybe, that’s what I thought to, but lets continue.

Some circumstantial evidence is that a lot of the words Wayne used in that verse like ‘bar,’ ‘back,’ ‘bleed,’ and ‘fire,’ are used continuously by Eminem but multiple times in one sequence, “I’m so tired of this I could blow, fire in the hole, I’m fired up so fire up the lighter and the dro.”

Another example of the beefier evidence is “Bitches try to kick me while I’m down I’ll break your leg (Wayne’s line)” In ‘Cinderella Man” Eminem says, “It’s a rap, I was down, when I was down I was kicked-I got up, I’m ‘bout to punch ya to the ground, YA TRICKED, IT’S A TRAP.” Then Wayne says “You want me up in the cage, then I’ll come out in beast mode” in the same song Em says “Caution to the wind, COMPLETE FREEDOM, look at this rappers, how I treat them, so why the fuck would I join’em when I beat’em.” Then Em goes on in the same song saying “When I rip this stage and tear it in half tonight.”

Another bit of evidence is, in the ‘Forever’ track Wayne says “Let the KING talk, check the price and pay attention” Eminem in ‘Not Afraid’ says “You said you was KING you lied through your TEETH, so for that fuck your FILLINGS instead of getting crowned your getting capped.” It is worth noting Lil Wayne needed eight root canals before entering jail.

And here is the ‘out of the ball park,’ kill-shot, “Lil Wayne slurps syrup ‘till he burps and smokes purp does a WORDSEARCH gets circles (W)RAPPED AROUND it like you do when I come through just to remind yourself what the fuck I can do.” Is a Shady line in the song ‘Won’t Back Down.’

If you pay attention to the CD you will notice a lot of lines that could tie in with this whole argument. To dismiss them as coincidental is foolish, because without even acknowledging this theory, you have to acknowledge Em’s meticulous approach with his wordplay throughout the album.

So why would these subliminal lines serve no purpose with someone as attentive, crafty, clever, and deliberate as Eminem?

-Just want to reiterate my good friend Jeremy came up with this theory; I’m just basically the messenger right now.

?uestlove's Celebrity Stories...

Here is something I came across....its a collection of stories of people that Questlove met over the years...VERY is one on 2Pac

In response to "2Pac" by eag5200. 6 comments .

pac and suge came by the house of blues to the 4/1/96 show the roots/fugees/goodie mob did.

that night was surreal

the fugees record kept skipping much to my delight cause i wanted the entire audience to know that we didn't need to play on top of a record to sound banging.--

all their records skipped in front of a celeb packed audience. this was the night the soulquarians were born. i met both d and erykah the same day.

it wasn't beef......just rivalry on some band to band shit.

best believe that night i was sangin

"let's get craaaaaaazay.....lets gett nuuuuuuuuuuuuuts hahahahahahaaaa" (you must know the movie purple rain to get this reference)


that night. warren betty came with flowers in tow to convince lauryn to take the role halle berry took in that political film of his (forget the title)

well....i went in the foundation room with kamal and some jawns was rapping to us when suddenly


pac and suge walked in like this was an old western.---remember how that piano player shut his piano when rae dawn chong hit oprah's character in the face on color purple?--man it felt like that.

we saw suge whisper something to deon sanders and whatever it was, neon deon's whole demeanor was like *whimpers* he left INSTANTLY .

kamal was like " see how he bitched out deon?,,,,,,yo imma say whussup!"

i told him NO!!!! he was like "pssh fuck dat....pac is my nigga!"

i watched kamal go over to say hi through the reflection of a knife as a rear view (you know how they use mirrors in jail?) "he held his arm out and then........they gave him love back! whew!.....---

that whole weekend there was drama cause the bad boy/death row shit was about to be in full swing.

i followed mal and got love too. pac said he fucked with riq hard and said he wanted to work with us....i held him to that and in august i asked for a quote for illadelph halflife and he was more than happy to provide it.

Dr. Dre & Timbaland go back to school..

The students of Culver City High School in California recieved one helluva graduation present last night. Inside the school’s gymnasium, Dr. Dre and Timbaland made a surprise appearance. Dre didn’t perform, but Timbo recited cuts like, “The Way I Are,” ”Promiscuous Girl,” and “Say Something”. The concert was recorded for an online documentary and was sponsored by Hewlett Packard and Interscope Records. The label also plans to donate $10,000 worth of computer equipment.

Curren$y's Ozone interview

Spitta sits down with your favorite rappers magazine, and talks about his relationship with Dame Dash and his debut album..

The name Curren$y suggests one dedicated purpose: getting to the money. And yes, that’s a large benefit OF impending fame and a new partnership with Dame Dash’s BluRoc imprint – but monetary gains do not directly drive Curren$y.

“I’ma just be happy,” he expresses in a New Orleans accent that’s slightly worn off from his travels. “I can’t say I’ma have a Scarface house and I can’t say I’ma live under the interstate – but I’m pretty sure that with me doing what I want to do, I’ma end up with the Scarface house.”

And what Curren$y wants to do tends to be the opposite of what major labels want. After several attempts to fit into the “music industry machine,” Spitta realized he fit no one’s mold, especially with his unorthodox ways. He ventured out on his own, releasing two digital albums, This Ain’t No Mixtape and Jet Files, and last year caught the attention of Dame Dash. Dame is now on board for Curren$y’s third album – Pilot Talk. It’s a venture that will allow Curren$y to take flight and remain independently grounded as well, with full creative control. It’s exactly what Curren$y has been looking for.

How did the situation with you and Dame Dash come about?
His son and two of his nephews put him onto my music. He asked around about who he should get on the Blakroc project, and my name was brought up. Somebody gave him my number and he called. I flew out to New York the next day, and everything was everything.

How would you compare Pilot Talk and your last album Jet Files?
Based on the way I recorded Jet Files, it was a hybrid project – like an alb-tape or a mix-album, but it was all original music. The sh!t that made my mixtapes pop, I did that. I was doing my mixtapes in three days. I made Jet Files in four days. This time I’ve been recording for a minute, since the time me and Dame Dash linked up until now. And also, this time there will be physical copies. It’ll be in chain stores nationwide. This will be the first time people can go buy the CD in a store.

It seems like you’ve made a big push on the business side of things, but what about the content of Pilot Talk? What can people expect?
I have Devin the Dude on this album, Wiz Khalifa is on two joints, Jay Electronica, and Mos Def. Mos Def produced a joint for me too, so he’s on a song vocally and he produced a track called “Breakfast.” Mos did the beat in like 3 minutes and I wrote the verse in like 10 minutes. That was crazy. Outside of that, Big K.R.I.T. from Mississippi, he’s big, he’s killing it. I had the opportunity to get down with Ski Beatz. Just to have his opinion on sh!t that I’m doin’ and have him appreciate what I do, that was tight.

You’re known for being anti-industry, or “anti-machine.” How does the new situation with Dame Dash’s label fit into your own personal beliefs?
I’m absolutely still independent. Me and Dame Dash are just splitting the risk and we’ll reap the benefits at the end of the day. I’m still my own entity and my own company, Jets. Me and homie partnered up on this project as far as getting it shelved – that’s his department. As far as saying whatever I want, smoking as much as I want, and doing whatever I want, that’s my department. Dame Dash is one of the realest people I’ve met. He had no problems doing what everybody else was scared to do.

With you being one person, without a major label machine for so long, how have you been able to achieve so much?
By me dealing with the right people in places all over the country, people I can trust, people with the right virtues, like-minded people. I push the music in different places where it’ll get developed. My sh!t is with my friends. Like my manager is my homie, my artists are my friends, nobody’s tryin’ to do nothin’ underhanded. It’s just a good situation.

So for you, mixing friends and business has been a good thing?
Yeah. You know what kind of friends you have. You have your go-out friends; you have your friend you can call if you get a flat tire; you know what friend you might be able to sell a pound of weed with and they not gon’ **** the money up. I knew who I could [go into business] with, and now we’re putting these records out. We not sellin’ weed. (laughs)

When did you realize you stood out? Not just musically, but in life?
Since elementary school. People always asked what’s wrong [with me], or why I don’t wanna do what everyone else was doing. That’s always been a struggle in my life, with me just wanting to do what I want, and trying to exist in this industry, in this machine, and still do what I want to do – trying to win the game and do it the way I want.

Did you have problems with authority and following rules in school?
Yeah, and it’s crazy ‘cause I went to the best schools. I went to magnet schools, and I was in gifted and talented classes, but I had the worst grades – it just never synced up. I would talk a lot ‘cause I was bored.

That’s ironic, because it seems like going against the grain is turning out to be a good thing for you now, with your growing fan base.
Well, I never thought about how good of a thing it was – I just knew it was what I wanted to do. It wasn’t really about monetary success or anything tangible. It just so happened that as soon as I started doing exactly what I wanted, everything fell into place.

So what’s your fascination with jets and airplanes?
You can go anywhere. It’s amazing. I’m fascinated being so many places. I scared everybody on the plane [the first time] I saw the Statue of Liberty. I screamed at everybody to look at it. I might have been like 9 years old.My mom liked to travel. I had been to Europe, everywhere, before I was in high school. I might not have had too much sh!t, but we definitely went everywhere. When you get exposed to that type of sh!t, you can’t live no other way. Now I can’t stay in one spot. By me seeing all that sh!t, I knew I had to always be able to afford to do this sh!t, to do whatever I want.

So you decided rapping was the way to afford it?
My first rap was about Dennis the Menace, and then I quit. The dude from down the street was supposed to put some drug money behind us when we were little kids. He went to jail though. After that, I quit worrying about it until I got out of high school. Once I went to college, I did a semester and realized I didn’t want to do that, so I started writing again.

When did you get good at it?
Like the year before last. I was good, but I didn’t know what I was talkin’ about. Prior to doing what I wanted to do, I wasn’t talkin’ about my life. I realized I didn’t have to do that. If you hear some of the stuff I said…I had a song when I was with No Limit that started out talking about an AK-47 and clearing a whole street of people. You see me – how likely is that? Do I strike you as that guy? I wasn’t him then, but I said that sh!t.

For those who don’t know, what was your history with No Limit?
I started out with Tough Guy and when Dough got killed, C [Murder] looked out and I was on Tru Records. Then that situation happened with him unfortunately, and P stepped in, so that’s how I ended up with No Limit. I learned some sh!t from P too. After that, I went independent. Then I hollered at [Lil Wayne] about a verse and he was like, “Let’s hook up and do some sh!t.” I flew to Miami and we put that [YM] situation together.

Do you still talk to the Young Money crew?
I don’t have the same number anymore. I’m just doing my thing. There’s no love lost. I’m pretty sure everybody’s busy. I’m damn busy.

Makes sense. So with you having flown around the world, how would you compare your hometown New Orleans to other places you go?
It’s not as much eff’d up sh!t goin’ on. I watch the news in other cities just to see what’s happening. Everybody’s got their problems, but at home, the news is an hour of murder, shots fired, it’s never anything else. It’ll get better though. I’m about to pop and kill all that sh!t. The message in the sh!t I’m doin’, soon as I get in position, people will be like, “Alright, maybe we should smoke weed and buy shoes, and not shoot people, then everything will be straight.” After my rap sh!t is done I’ma run for office too.

So the solution to all problems is to smoke weed and buy shoes?
Yeah, there’s way cooler sh!t to do than shoot guns. We went to Wal-Mart today. That was cool, we had a great time. There’s options.

Why do you think people don’t see those other options?
Because of the machine! The machine perpetuates the bullsh!t. It’s out of control. We might get shot at the club ‘cause we have to live in this sh!t, but they don’t give a fukk. All that matters with their machine is ringtones and sh!t. They control the audio and visuals people get; all the destruction. How many Mos Def videos do you see? It’s not like it was in the 90s. You’d see an N.W.A video, then a Tribe Called Quest video. Now it’s all like the same song. It’s not about music. It’s a pay cut to do the real sh!t.

Earlier you mentioned your artists. Who are they and what are your plans after the album comes out?
Yeah The Jets – that’s Young Roddy, Trademark the Skydiver, and Street Wiz. We’re doing a group project. I have a few secret projects that I’m puttin’ together with them, as well as a company you’ll hear a lot about called The Serve. Look for The Serve DVD coming out. I got some other mixtapes coming out, and I got an EP I’ma put out with The Serve. //

Recovery set to sell over 600k+ first week..

The record industry just scored its own golden goal. Can a full Recovery be far behind?

Offering conclusive proof that Marshall still matters, Eminem’s aptly named Recovery will score the year’s highest sales debut. Look for a total of between 590-615k for the Shady/Aftermath/Interscope album, easily beating Sade’s 503k back in February. It could also beat his last album, Relapse, which sold 608k in its first week in May ’09.

That’s based on totals from those music retailers who haven’t painted their faces red, white and blue and shown up in South Africa with vuvuzelas in tow for the World Cup.

In addition, Em’s duet with Rihanna, “Love the Way You Lie,” has currently supplanted Katy Perry’s “California Gurls” as the top iTunes download.

Ka$h WiTa-K Featuring Anya - Breathe In Me (Produced By Merc.)

Recently released inmate from Rikers talks about how Lil' Waybe is holding up in jail

Since I’ve been locked up until now, one of the main things I constantly get asked about is Lil Wayne, who was incarcerated at Rikers Island at the same time I was. During my stay at Rikers Island, I was placed in General Population at the E.M.T.C. (C-76 aka “6 Building”) where all male sentenced inmates are held. I would spend most of my time working, drawing, watching bootleg DVDs, and listening to the radio. Inmates would get paid $10-$25 a week for various jobs around the jail. For a few months of my time I worked; not for the money as much but to help pass the time. My job on the Island was to rinse and scrub pots in the mess hall as well as deliver the dinner food wagons with my friend and fellow inmate Geoff Turbeville to Protective Custody (“P.C.” – 3 Upper), Administrative Segregation (“AdSeg” – 2 Upper), New Admission Cells & C.A.T Cells (Cells for New Inmates and Inmates who had Assaulted Staff -2 & 3 Main) , and Mental Observation Dorm (“M.O.” – 1 Main).

Contrary to what was written in most newspapers Dwayne “Lil Wayne” Carter was housed in Protective Custody Cells. This is where the jail would house some Snitches, Homosexuals, Child Molesters, Incarcerated Cops, former Correctional Officers, and occasionally High-Profile Cases. Basically anyone who would or have had a problem in general population.

These Inmates were not allowed to leave their respective housing areas to go to the mess hall, so we would have bring the meals to them. While doing this I would sometimes see humorous stuff. One time I witnessed an inmate who worked as a pantry worker in 2 & 3 Upper throw a loaf of bread through a food port in the day room at Lil Wayne and yell at him “Welcome to my hood *****! Where’s your Cash Money now MOTHER ****ER!”. Lil Wayne glanced back at the rather large inmate and proceeded to try and ignore him while watching TV. On our runs we would see crazy inmates in the M.O. House get pepper sprayed for fighting in the dorm and all sorts of other wild stuff…

While up in these areas for work I was given this book, which was sent to Lil Wayne. I found the Inscription to be rather interesting to say the least.

Lil Wayne was treated no different by the staff than any other inmate. He didn’t have any laptop or any other special privileges. The only thing that would separate him from the rest was that he had “front gate visits” (visits in private). Where all other inmates would see friends and family in a big gymnasium.

This is the only time he was allowed to leave his housing area, and was the only time (other than when he took methadone for drug withdrawal at the clinic) he would have any type of contact with inmates in general population while walking the halls to his visits . He would always look at the floor and never talk as he was escorted by captains to his visit. He would make all attempts to avoid any type of eye contact with any other inmate.

While locked up I drew Lil Wayne from the Rolling Stone cover he was featured on. I had professional prints sent into the jail to sell and get copies (some of which were later confiscated by Correctional Officers) signed by Weezy for friends and family. I spent days trying to steal a sharpie from various areas around the building. I eventually had to buy one with some commissary soups from a gay inmate who would get sharpies from program offices and use them for lip liner.

At times around the jail you would hear ridiculous stories, lies and rumors about Lil Wayne. Randomly in intake and other parts of the building you would find little stick figure drawings of him behind bars. I would normally ignore most of the ignorant comments and lies that the inmates would say in regards to Lil Wayne. I would sit back and let them talk their bull**** without letting them know I delivered his food and others. My friend and co-worker made that mistake once; he was later asked by Blood Gang Members to send kites (letters from one inmate to another which is against the rules of the jail) to Wayne, asking for money or legal representation for appeals and other open cases. Soon after receiving my drawings of Lil Wayne, I was moved out of my working dorm to a high risk “main” dorm for an unrelated “incident” in the house, consequently I was no longer able to work anymore…

Freeway Ricky Officially Suing Rapper Rick Ross


(From AllHipHop News) It’s official: former drug kingpin “Freeway” Ricky Ross has filed a lawsuit against William Leonard Roberts II aka rapper Rick Ross, in a California Federal Court.

Freeway Ricky’s attorney Melvin Sharpe Jr., ESQ., filed a trademark infringement lawsuit on Friday (June 18th) in U.S. District Court, Central District of California.

Judge Percy Anderson will issue summonses to Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter and rapper Rick Ross who could both be called to testify during the discovery process.

Additionally, Jay-Z, Maybach Music Group., Slip-N-Slide Records and UMG Recordings are named as defendants in the lawsuit.

Jay-Z is named in the lawsuit because he signed Ross to Island Def Jam in 2006, while he was President of the legendary label, which Ross still calls home.

Under his deal with Def Jam, Rick Ross has released three chart-topping albums: Port of Miami (2006), Trilla (2008) and Deeper Than Rap (2009).

On Friday, lawyers for Freeway Ricky filed paperwork seeking a temporary restraining order for preliminary and permanent injunction relief, to officially block the release of Ross’ upcoming album Teflon Don.

Freeway Ricky accuses rapper Rick Ross of stealing his name, image and likeness to create a successful rap career.

The former drug dealer from Los Angeles, who raked in millions-of-dollars per day during 1980’s and early 1990’s.

In 1996, Freeway Ricky Ross was sentenced to life in prison, for attempting to purchase 100 kilos of cocaine from an undercover agent.

The sentenced was reduced in 2005 and in May of 2009, he was released from a Texarkana, Texas state prison.

Freeway Ricky currently runs his non-profit organization, Freeway Enterprises, which engages at-risk youth across the country and warns them of the perils the street life.

Justin Timberlake to make rap debut on Diddy's Last Train To Paris

Last Train To Paris - P Diddy's first record as part of his new Diddy-Dirty Money band - features a track with a rap by Timberlake.

He told the Daily Star: "I can’t wait for people to hear this song. It’s called 'Shades' and it’s going to blow you away. I’m the main vocalist on it and JT does the backing vocals and then unleashes a rap.

"It’s the first time he’s ever rapped on a song and you’re going to love it. It’s a very sexy song. It’s the sexiest song on the album."

P Diddy also revealed that the band's debut LP, due in September, features Jay-Z, Chris Brown and Drake.

He said: "Everyone’s trying to sound like our labelmates the Black Eyed Peas. Whenever you follow people and try to copy their blueprint, that’s when you fail.

"We have our own blueprint, our own style. We respect everyone else’s music but we’ve got something else to bring to the table. We’re refreshing and innovative."
