We all know that Twitter remarks aren’t really “news” or even “truth” for that matter, but if this were to be true you have to take a few things into consideration:
If he signed only Royce, would we get another “Bad Meets Evil” or another Rock City (Version 2.0)?
If he signed Slaughterhouse, could the Interscope overlords turn them into a commercially viable act and not another D12?
Outside of Fiddy, name me one act/group under Shady that’s been able to sustain relevance. I’ll wait…
Remember Stat Quo, Cashis and Bobby Creekwater? Exactly.
All in all, while it would be a good look for Nickel Nine, I’m not fully convinced that this would truly be a good thing. On the other hand, on the heels of the massive fail somewhat disappointing sales of the Slaughterhouse album, there isn’t any much lower one could go this would definitely be an upgrade.
The track under the cut though was ridiculous, though, and I’d like to see more of that if this were true.
I’m sure the majority of us saw this coming. But it’s good to see/hear it’s official. Creek’s (2)dope to be stuck in a bullshit situation like that. But damn, just think about it… Obie, Stat & Creek? They had a nice lineup of artists. And they just let them ride the bench? Labels stay fucking up. Shouts to Maurice Garland on the clip (and NahRight on the sighting). Also, hit the jump for a new Bobby Creek-assisted video from D. Fokis…
Stat & Bobby Creek jump on Kanye’s Say You Will for a new joint off Stat’s upcoming mixtape, Checks & Balances, which is dropping soon. Damn… after Drake (and Mickey), rappers shouldn’t touch this. Although I do think Stat did his thing, it’s just compared to Drizzy & Mickey? Nahh…
Some new Slim Shady right on the cusp of the new year. NMC, thank you and you’re welcome. SHAKE UPDATE: I’m with the c-boys… I’ll wait til I get a complete version (with Dre) until I pass judgement on this track.
As if you didn’t know, NMC gets down like strippers with dead presidents on the ground. Obie is getting ready to push his third album, Bottoms Up, and they are working this record. Detroit is in the building today! Yessir. UPDATE: Shouts to the commenter that pointed out the lateness in this post. It’s very important to him that he gets credit for showing the world that Shake isn’t human. So props to him, smh.
