It’s not as savage as DOA, but it’s very much needed. All I gotta say is that all these rappers (except Stat, Dre and Cashis) all are suckers for putting their pop hook foot forward when it comes to album release time. I’m a huge fan of clearing out the closet records, but we need an album of this nature to really galvanise the position of these artists. Shout out to Dynamo for putting us on!
Looks like this JR Rotem produced beat could get the LA clubs popping, especially with 50’s cameo. Props to RapRadar.
Geeks know they flipped the Nu Shooz ‘I Can’t Wait’ sample from 1986. Big shout to my homey DJ Starting from Scratch in Toronto that put me on to this sonic boom.
The walking contradiction that is KRS-One weighs in on the smoke that is 50 Cent Vs Jay-Z. The brilliant Chuck ‘Jigsaw’ Creekmur brings KRS out in a way that hasn’t been done for a long time (i.e. there was no ‘wtf KRS?’ moment). UPDATE AS WATCHING: KRS said ‘Yayo is no joke’ – ok so FML, Chuck couldn’t keep Krs from saying some dumb shit. Yayo is about as terrible as it gets, you’re wrong Kris, email me if you disagree. Done.
So we always knew that when Kanye and 50 Cent famously went head to head on album sales in Sept 07 (Kanye’s ‘Graduation’ Vs Fif’s ‘Curtis’) – it was all one big set up, with Viacom, Interscope and Island Def Jam fanning the flames. However, if you read between the lines, or look at the video below for crystal confirmation, 50 has been saying that Kanye didn’t camp up the campaign as much as he should’ve, hence the follow on disses. The full interview will be out on Fuse soon, but until then.
I’m happy to accept and C&D’s on this, because as far as I know, he’s putting this content out for free via MrWorldPremeire.net. So here it is, the film that goes with 50 Cent’s new album of the same name, Before I self Destruct. 50 is back in a place where I would hand over a 10 for his new album, thankfully.
‘Actor’ – I’m here to audition for 50’s new film
Casting Director – Can you act?
‘Actor’ – No
Casting Director – You got the part
Well here it is folks, the diss record thisis50.com has been hyping people about all week. You like it? Or is this 50 just riding the Beanie wagon as he has an album coming out? The fact that it’s reserved to a rant at the end, rather than a lyrical diss makes me think the latter. Jay will wait till Jan when Fif still isn’t platinum then diss him back IMHO.
I am back on the 50 Cent fan list. This is incredible brand marketing and great for the reach of both 50 and Philips. No wonder Curtis is soo damn cocky, he genuinely comes up with legendary ideas. Here’s the deal.
1) 50 Cent puts out ‘The War Angel LP’ mixtape, it’s street and it’s free
2) Fif gets a huge street buzz going with this single ‘OK, You’re Right’ and addresses his critics
3) He then lines up with an award winning to ad campaign by Philips for a new TV, and chops in his music video seemlessly
And he still earns way more than the head of Saatchi and Saatchi, let’s go!
50 Cent – ‘OK, You’re Right’ Video
Based on the original advert…
and after the jump, the making of the original advert (very dope)
50 covers all the major June 2009 issues on Funkmaster Flex’s show.
I was hyped when I thought Angie Martinez would be getting it in with Rick Ross about being a C.O. on Hot 97. However, Angie deaded that because she couldn’t speak on everything. However, he did show up to talk rubbish on Funkmaster Flex. Here’s the audio that I found of the interview over on RealTalkNY.net.
DAYUM, DAYUM, DAAAYUUUMM. Slim is back like a mu***f**k*r!!!
What do you think to THAT?!?!?! I’m gonna burn this to a CD all by its damn self!
