I’ve been saying that this guy is a fucking loser. The past month has beyond proven that. First you have the nerve to tag a phone call you recorded where Crooked I is speaking on being shot (at)? Way to have some human decency. And now you come out of left field with some “Bishop Lamont Released From Aftermath” shit. I didn’t believe it when I watched the video; which I won’t link to, sorry (not really). And the above clip has Bishop talking on the rumor and Vlad himself. Oh yea… we back!
No words, really.
* turns up “’93 Til Infinity”*
I’m not sure if there’s really any way to misconstrue “Anybody that has time to sit and type at they computer might be gay to me. I mean just typing a comment,” but then again I’m just a faceless schmuck in the hip-hop crowd so what do i know?
It’s too bad certain artists don’t really live what they spit. Deeper Than Rap coming March 24th when Def Jam lets him drop it. Shouts to Papa Smirf.
Game’s DJ gives his insight as to what happened the moments leading up to the 50/Game splintering. Honestly, I think this was the moment that kicked off Curtis’ downward spiral.
For those unaware, a mass amount of rumors began flooding the internets this weekend about Crooked I being shot, being in critical condition, etc. Some people even hit me up and told me he was dead. It’s amazing how ass backwards a game of telephone can get through text messages, emails and Twitter updates. When I first started hearing the talks, I reached out to see if any of it was true. Got my answer and left it to him to tell his story rather than be apart of the gossip ring. In the audio above, he let’s everyone know he’s physically ok. Which is great news and I hope for the best on the mental side of things. It’s a fucking shame that Vlad thinks he has to tag an audio clip where Crook is talking on such a serious issue though. I mean, really!? Dah well… only thing that matters is that Crook is alright.
I don’t know what’s gayer: that Budden’s name is spelled wrong on his own album, or the fact that there’s some schmuck out there who actually believes he’s an “Internet Soldier.”
Now this is how interviews should be done. Get in depth with the person and stop asking them the exact questions everyone else would in the same position. In part 1 above, Elliot speaks with HHC on how he got into hip hop journalism, what he hopes to achieve with his new site RapRadar (which drops March 1st), what keeps him motivated and how he came up with the moniker, YN. Part 2 below, he goes in about the DJ Vlad x Joe Budden x Ransom situation, Kanye’s comments about Rihanna & Beyonce and more. He also gives upcoming journalists x bloggers some advice. So listen up!
Random Hell Rell Fact: Hell Rell was the first crack dealer….to cook crack with his own face.
I’m pretty sure it’s not the shit that’ll have you tongue-kissing your sister a la Euro Trip, however. Plus, it was banned for over a century in the States. If I were to ever try that stuff i’d have to be that Eastern European shit. Fuck the watered-down American equvalent.
Ruger Rell talks about his relationship with Cam’Ron and how that relates with the rest of Dip-Set. It still doesn’t beat my interview with him, where I asked him about his Hell Rell facts.
