The guys go in on some funny stories behind the scenes in their hip-hop history…
Here we go again people… a wrap up of yesterday’s VH1 reality shows… I got to watch them earlier in the day, so forgive me for not joining in on Twitter last night with the colorful commentary that ensues while the shows are on… Let’s go!
I’m not gonna go that hard on Chilli this week cause I really felt bad (just a little) for her that Floyd stood her ass up for dinner… but it serves her right! That long ass list of wants (not needs mind you) is what’s keeping you single girl and you really need to start un-checking some of that shit on the list to even start dating… I mean hell just go with the damn flow… It ain’t that hard…
Brandy & Ray J… did ya’ll not get the memo and hear your mom say she wanted you both to start handling the business so she can start to do other things in her life!!! I see their careers on a spiral downward if this happens, because Ray J. can’t even handle a meeting with Rodney “DarkChild” Jerkins without getting all flustered… He said your mom can’t be in the forefront… so guess what… THIS MEANS YOU!!! It doesn’t take rocket science to see that… The highlight of this show for me now is gonna be Shae! I love her energy and I really think that poor Brandy will play the back once again because this chick has PERSONALITY PLUS! Brandy needs some personality lessons… she’s boring as hell!
And I saved the best for last… Basketball wives… I mean, what can I say… this show is my favorite of the 3! I still don’t like Royce, but I was happy to see Jennifer make her go from HS cheerleader to potential classy lady (notice I said potential; just because you dress her ass up don’t make the “no school on Saturday” chick classy!). But check this out… I’ve been going over and over the scene with the groupie, Sandra, in my mind all night and real talk… if I was Jennifer, that bitch would have gotten tossed… wait, wait, before you say I’m “ghetto” or “hood” or “that’s not ladylike” let me explain why.
I get it that we are in Miami and it’s small and people talk… and I even get that if I’m in a relationship (married or dating ) with a ball player that the potential for groupies goes up a couple of notches (well a whole lot of damn notches) but here’s where the lines get a little fuzzy for me… if there have been rumors circulating around about my husband and a certain groupie and I HAPPEN to be in the same place as said groupie and not only do I approach her and we have words… She CANNOT say “Do you think that I’m the only girl he talks to? Are you kidding me? I saw him talking to another girl that same night!” without “slow singing and flower bringing” (R.I.P Biggie) happening right afterwards. BITCH, have you lost your fucking mind… You ain’t gonna say that shit to my ass without trying to gasp for breath right afterwards… I will try to KILL your ass for insinuating that (even if it is going down), then I’m going home and try to KILL his ass too for making me have to go through this bullshit… someone is NOT going to survive my WRATH after those words are spoken… I mean damn Jennifer…”Really?” would not have been my choice of words after that comment, but I get it you are on TV and you gotta be all classy, but FUCK that… her ass would have been FLOORED, literally… #ImJustSayin

The Skit: Mad Rapper skit on “Kick in the Door” from Notorious B.I.G.’s 1997 album, Life After Death
The Punchline: Mad Rapper: “I’ma tell you why I’m mad! These niggas is makin’ $500,000 videos. They drivin’ around in hot cars. They got bitches. They got all that shit. I’m still livin’ with my moms!
The Bottom Line: Don’t lie: You knew this was coming. Few skits have been as memorable as Bad Boy’s “Mad Rapper” routine. After debuting on Biggie’s final album, BB producer Deric “D-Dot” Angelettie performed subsequent skits as the Mad Rapper on albums by The LOX, Black Rob, Puff Daddy, DJ Drama, Da Band, commercials and movies. As a result, he also managed to come up on an album deal and released his debut LP, “Tell ‘Em Why You Madd”, in 2000, which featured production spots from D-Dot’s upstart mentee Kanye West. Daaaaammmmmnnnnn, son! All off a skit? Can’t be mad at that. YEAH BOY!!!!!!!!!!—–>from Vibe Magazine…Thanx guys!!!
Guru, the pioneering rapper of Legendary Hip-Hop group Gangstar has died. He was 43.
The rap star, whose real name is Keith Elam, died after a long battle with cancer, his longtime professional partner DJ Premier said.
Guru’s death came two months after he suffered a heart attack and was hospitalized in New York. He reportedly fell into a coma after undergoing surgery.
Guru rocketed to stardom in the late 1980s when he partnered with DJ Premier to create the group Gang Starr.
The partnership helped define East Coast rap, with its complex, socially-conscious lyrics and jazz-heavy samples.
In the 1990s, Guru received further acclaim for his solo albums dubbed “Jazzmattaz,” which featured collaborations with such jazz sensations as Branford Marsalis and Donald Byrd.
On his Web site, DJ Premier published a letter purportedly written by Guru, which stands for Gifted Unlimited Rhymes Universal.
“I write this with tears in my eyes, not of sorrow but of joy for what a wonderful life I have enjoyed and how many great people I have had the pleasure of meeting,” the letter reads.
There was also some controversial statements in the letter concerning Guru’s and Premier’s relationship in recent years. BUT we want to CELEBRATE the life of a great dude…You will be missed Guru…One Love and God Bless!
Shout out to Vibe for making such a conversation piece. Riggs!!!! Good lookin’ on the The Hitmen love…! I totally agree….BTW…
I got in late Sunday so I missed most of my reality shows, but of course TIVO is my best friend and I was able to play catch up late Sunday and Monday… so as I shake my head, here we go…
Chilli, Chilli, Chilli… I mean WHY do you even have a show?? You say you are looking for love, but you are one picky ass *beep*… How you gonna look at someone and know right off the bat without even figuring out what they are about that they’re not your type… What kinda shit are you on… That’s the reason why your ass is still SINGLE… No one is GOOD enough for you, so why not stay single and just continue to flirt with ya boy Mayweather and stop wasting good TV time… I mean damn!
Now I’m really buggin off the fact that ya boy Ray J, whose had sex tapes, reality dating shows and now this show, is feeling some kind of way because he had to let Mz. Berry down easy…WTF did you do a dating show to settle down for if that wasn’t what you was gonna do…. I mean Ray J you confused now, you don’t know what you want… well let me help your ass figure it out… You got on a show to fuck around with as many chicks as you could making these stardom hungry chicks think they could fuck their way to the top with you and have their careers take off like Ms. Kardashian (Sorry Kim, but it’s true… No Sex Tape… No Career) ‘nuff said… Now you wanna act all innocent like you don’t wanna hurt nobody’s feeling… Really? You concerned now? GTFOH!!!! I’d rather you tell a chick, “hey I just want to fuck you and a whole lot of other bitches and oh don’t forget about the homies and we gonna have the cameras follow our asses around… you cool with that?” I think they’d be okay with that… Geesh!
On to my favorite show out of the 3, Basketball Wives! I still digress because I’m really trying to come to grips with Shaunie’s decision to add Royce to this cast… What is the value in having her there? She’s like an annoying little “gnat” that you just want to swat away… She simply doesn’t get it… She’s TRASHY, not CLASSY and I don’t even blame Evelyn for not wanting her ass as her b-day party… I used to be a dancer back in the day, but I don’t ever remember wanting to “pop that thang” wherever I went… What really shocks me most about that girl is how she just don’t give a damn about what’s being said and how she’s portrayed in the media and how it affects everyone around her… DON’T YOU HAVE A CHILD? Grow up hun!!! He’s eventually gonna see this footage when he gets older and then what you gonna say… oh wait, “FUCK THE HATERS!”… That seems to be your favorite line, excuse whatever you wanna call it, but I could go on but we going On to the next one… Did ya’ll hear Eric Williams justify his cheatin on the road?? His words exactly, “Basketball is an emotional sport” “I had a need that I needed to satisfy at the time, I’m not perfect”… yeah, yeah, yeah, what the fuck eva… That don’t justify shit… Now let’s flip the script for a second… While these same “Emotional Ass Basketball players” are out there hooping and on the road and shit satisfying a need… what if their wives were home satisfying the same need… Awww shit… I done opened a can a worms now… cause this same “emotional ass muthafucka” is NOT, do you HEAR me… NOT going to be able to handle that bullshit… but the wives are supposed to just chalk it up to “It’s a man thing” and “Oh baby I’m sorry” and “I won’t do it again”… I can go on, but I CAN’T!!! SMDH at the b.s.
People are constantly asking me how to I continue to watch Reality TV and honestly for me… It’s good entertainment… The lessons I’ve learned through these shows is that 1) Having money doesn’t make you happy 2) Niggas run game from 18-80 (yeah I said it, game!) and you just gotta be aware when you see it… and last but not least 3) Be happy with yourself before you can find someone to be happy with…
p.s. ditch the damn long lists or you’ll be a lonely ass like Chilli #ImJustSayin

Ok, ok Round 1 is down and of course The Hitmen won their first round battle against the great producer Hurby Luv Bug (a friend also) by a land-slide 89% of the vote. Other winners include, Dr. Dre, The Neptunes, The Bomb Squad, DJ Premier, Timbaland and Pete Rock. Some of the losers were Bangladesh, DJ Toomp, Rockwilder, Hi-Tek…alot of surprises….for more check out http://vibe.com/hiphopproducer
Shondrae Crawford aka Bangladesh—who’s up against the more than well-respected DJ Premier—has a few words on his standing.
“I’m definitely deserving to be on the list as one of the best producers right now, but I wouldn’t say hip-hop. Probably the only hip-hop thing I made was ‘A Milli’ and that was probably the greatest beat of this era,” the Atlanta-based producer told VIBE. “I think if you really define hip-hop, Premier is really the best hip-hop producer. He’s amazing with samples… he’s the essence of hip-hop.”
Bangladesh joins other rappers such as: Havoc, Jam Master Jay, RZA and Q-Tip in the Boom-Bap category, but felt he belonged more in Mass Appeal, or even his own division. “I have a sound that the masses like. But I wouldn’t put myself in any of those categories. I’m probably in ‘The Most Creative’ box or ‘Most Against The Grain,'” he says.
“All the producers in [‘Mass Appeal’], they strive for certain things,” he continued. “Like Polow will go in and say we need to make a pop record, we gotta make a Top 40 and that’s what he’ll make. See, I create organically and it becomes mass appealed. That’s why I feel like I’m better. I don’t do what is going to make me money or what the DJs are going to want to play. I just do me. And everything that I’ve done has been knocked down in the beginning, but at the end of the day it sticks to the walls. It don’t take a label to back it up, it just blows because people want different shit.”
“Honestly, I’m better than all them peoples. I’m not disrespecting them because I was influenced by Timbaland and Neptunes and all of them, but your time came and went. There’s time for other things to happen.”
“A lot of them producers, some have a sound and some don’t. I think Polow kinda does whatever, he doesn’t have a certain sound, he emulates other peoples stuff. To me, he’s probably a well-sought-out producer, but at the same time its about who you’re with, who you’re around, who’s getting you the work,” he continues. “I don’t get all the Interscope work, I create the work. That makes me better because I don’t have people in my pocket. My sound is so powerful that the artist love it and it skips all the middle men. All my beats have been placed by getting it directly to the artist. I don’t really need nobody cosigning.”
Yep! things are getting hhheeaattteedddddd!!! Lmao….
My man Serious Jones, who USED to be signed to Ludacris and DTP, breaks his silence and his situation and his future…We love this kid!!! He from Jersey but he might have some BK in him…Good luck lil bruh…you nice!!!!
