What Should Win Rap Album of the Year?

4 12 2008

grammy

The Grammy Nominees were announced yesterday and the most interesting “battle” to me is the rap album of the year.  

 

You got:

Jay-Z American Gangster

Lil Wayne-The Carter III

Lupe Fiasco-The Cool

Nas-Untitled

T.I.-Paper Trail

 

If I were a Grammy voter, I would use my vote for American Gangster.  But, I wouldn’t be so hard pressed to give my vote for T.I.  Wayne just isn’t getting my vote because even though C3 had some very high points, it’s not cohesive enough as American Gangster or as reflective and soul touching as Paper Trail.  If I had to rank these five albums it would be as follows:

1. American Gangster

2.Paper Trail

3.Untitled

4.The Cool

5. The Carter III

How would you rank them?  I wanna hear this!  Dont be shy!

Funkmaster Flex Airs Out Buck, and Everyone Else…

1 07 2008

 

 

I actually feel what Flex is saying here.  Especially when he got into the whole thing about rappers writing for other rappers.  He said rappers who write for other rappers should shut up and stop trying to air out the people who they write for because its a reason why you aren’t on that record.  Yea, true plus you are playing your part.  And, you knew what you signed up for when you got in the game. This ain’t checkersor Twister we’re playing.  Personally, I think no aspiring artist should NEVER sign to another artist’s record label.  Because you will NEVER be the priority, no matter how talented you are.  There’s only one reasonable exception, Kanye West and even he has to go sit in a corner when Jay-Z comes out.  Signing to other artist’s record labels is ALWAYS a bad idea.  In Buck’s case I’m with Flex on this one.  Don’t be shouting out G-Unit every which way and forth, claiming to be bout ready to “ride” on Sloppy Joe and Game then when you get pissed say fuck em!  Thats not hot and it pisses the fan off (me)!!!!!  Ehh, here’s the news! (hiphopdx)

 

On air recently, iconic deejay and radio personality Funkmaster Flex gave a rare controversial siding with 50 Cent in G-Unit‘s recent conflict with Young Buck.

The Hot 97 mainstay said, “Unfortunately, I can’t move with Young Buck because I’m on that thing on loyalty, man.” He added, “A lot of you rappers, man, you get onto a label that’s smokin’ hot, and the guy at the helm is hot, man, pushin’ out units! And you want to come along and live because you know if you just stay at home, drink your hot chocolate and watch Rap City, you’re guaranteed to go gold without leaving your block.

The deejay expressed further skepticism to a class of newer artists, “And I watch y’all sell gold, when you should have sold 100,000 [units, and] start talkin’ slick. I’m not just talkin’ about [the Young Buck] situation, I’m sayin’ y’all do it all the time. Let me tell you something: it’s corny; that’s a small man’s world. You know what you show when you do that? That you was never nothin’, and you was never ridin’, and you was never on the team, ever!

Flex blanketed this statement in regards to artists underneath Jay-Z,DiddyDr. DreEminemJermaine DupriTimbalandFat Joe and Lil Wayne. Speaking to these moguls, he pleaded, “Y’all need to stop handing out these free meals to snausages [sic].

Speaking from experience, the deejay who has released several gold albums, added that he’s “very careful” about mentoring other deejays, and added that he was the biggest in the world. Flex attributed this to the legendary Chuck Chillout, a deejay who he considered to be a mentor.

The interview also alluded to Flex‘s displeasure with Gillie Da Kid‘s problems with Lil Wayne.

Further in the interview, focusing on the highly-publicized phone conversation withYoung Buck crying to 50 CentFlex commented, “He’s a good dude, and I know what happened.” He added, “Your son can never get older than you,” analogizing that whoever a rapper signs is inherently their son. “On Father’s Day, buy a gift.

On his 2005 Car Show album, Funkmaster Flex featured the song “Just A Touch” which featured 50 Cent.

 





Hov to Buy into the Yanks?!!?!

26 06 2008

It keeps gettin’ better and better for my nigga Hov.  He’s about to move the Nets to Brooklyn AND about to buy into the New York Yankees.  My nigga making POWER moves.  What’s next 50 buying the Mets?  Hope not…

First the Nets, now the Yankees? Hov recently revealed to Time Out London that he could possibly buy a share in the most decorated franchise in sports history. “Someone told me yesterday that someone else had a piece of the New York Yankees,” Jigga told Time Out. “‘We wanna talk to you, yadda yadda yadda.’ I mean, I love the Yankees so I’m in the middle of following that through, but sometimes it comes to be something and sometimes it comes to be nothing.
