100% Benzino Free

sourcesite_s.jpg

If you go to the Source website, you’ll notice they have a nifty little 100% Benzino Free banner displayed prominently on the homepage. That’s so great. Right next to the banner is an interesting FAQ with new CEO Jeremy Miller.

SOHH has info on the newly reborn mag’s new deal with Image Entertainment.  

Meanwhile, in Fantasy Land: Dave Mays has filed suit against the Black Enterprise investment group that now controls the magazine, and Benzino was spotted at a Ranch in Kentucky pricing horses.

    Looks like the Sauce has made it’s first step back towards respectable status. They will really have to prove themselves in the next few issues if they want to regain any old subscribers.
    This combined with the nas jigga collabo has 2006 lookin real nice for the rap scene. Let’s keep things movin with grounbreakin Busta / Ghostface albums for the first quarter, and shit will be mad nice !!

    peace to Eskay, fasho !!

    When I saw the banner saying Benzino free, all I could say was Whoah

    I know this is off the subject but after seeing Juvenile’s video for “Hustle” , I’m wondering how is New Orleans still going to go on with Mardi Gras. Here’s a link for it

  5. ProHipHop - Hip Hop Business News Says:

    The Source: “100% Benzino Free”

    Eskay has a screenshot of The Source’s website that displays a 100% Benzino Free graphic on there but, unfortunately, their site is down at the moment so I can’t verify that or check out the FAQ from CEO Jeremy Miller

    >>I’m wondering how is New Orleans still going to go on with Mardi Gras

    the French Quarter was pretty much untouched, it was the hood that really caught it the worst, as you can see in that video. hard clip, Juvey kept it official

    lmao at “first”

  8. GET Says:

    I thank Eminem and 50 for helping destroy the Source.

    I Also Thank Tony Yayo for bitching up Benzino, over the summer in Miami.

    >> I thank Eminem and 50 for helping destroy the Source.

    see that’s what i’m talking about when i say them niggas are hiphop’s finest. if it wasn’t for 50 benzino would still be here. 50 is a fucking genius, got rid of hiphop’s poison just for you hiphop lovers and yall ain’t wanna thank him?
    nas and jay who? 5-0 IS THE ONE WHO SAVED HIPHOP! give credit where its due. the man is a legend. show some respect!

    GGGGG…G-UNIT!

  10. e-dubbs Says:

    It doesnt matter who takes over the Source. It’s pretty much over.

  11. DEEZ NUTS Says:

    LOL@ BENZINO COPPING A HORSE

  12. tyronebiggums71 Says:

    i shouldnt allow myself to get sucked into this but EM killed benzino and the source not 50. 50 didnt do shit EM was the one killin him on nail in the coffin and go to sleep bitch. second ending benzino is nothing to be proud of beastniggas could probably end benzino. and last but not least benzino killed himself more than anyone, once he started using the magazine strictly as a way to promote his albums and his points of view he lost all the integrity the source had. thank god the clown is gone

  13. J F Says:

    haha… thats funny…

  14. luis Says:

    uhhh correction, YES eminem killed the SAUCE BUT didn’t do it all by himself. The SAUCE managed to get 50 involved due to the affiliation with Em which lead for 50 to bash the SAUCE in many occasion, then everyone around 50’s circle started to hate the SAUCE and bashing the shit out of it. And just for the record, the Sauce would give ALOT of “hate/attention” to these two rappers, which lead for the demise of the so called “hip hop bible”…..NUFF SAID!!!!

  15. HOLLYHOOD(FUTURE AFTERMATH ARTIST) Says:

    NO BENZO THATS GOOD!

  16. She's So Real Says:

    It’s about fucking time. Now if we could just get XXL to do a cover story on someone that isn’t affiliated with g-unit.

  17. MaddenMaster Says:

    I didn’t post in this shit because I don’t respect the source….. and it has nothing to do with the sady beef, to be honest with you my beef with the source goes way back to the Master P days when they would allow him to buy up the entire mag. to promote his wack camp of artist and they wouldn’t report on him subjectively…… I can’t respect that… Payola for magazines…

  18. She's So Real Says:

    I feel you. I stopped buying the source a long fucking time ago. I could see how ass back wards, biased they were when I was a freshman in high school (’96).

  19. MaddenMaster Says:

    Yea, the fall of the source is overhyped and slim shady gets toooo much credit for it…. That shit has been trash for years…

  20. Fresh Says:

    WOW, The Source’s website FINALLY is complete?

  23. tyronebiggums71 Says:

    ^^^ its some shady stalker type shit isnt it? i mean i bet you if the boy 5-0 actually read this he would probably go order a restraining order on this dickriding weirdo, i mean dude is obessed with 50’s life and trying to make people like him, luis worry about how you are doing in life not 50

  24. luis Says:

    *looking around*….. *bangs on keyboard* sjdlkmfl..*scratches head?*..I coulda swore i typed http://www.nahright.com in the address window?…How the fukk i end up on http://www.gunitworld.com?

    Benzino is my nigga. I got his message, niggaz happy cause they shot the messenger..that eminem callin black women hoes and bishes was not cool..even if it was old or whatever I had respect for Ems rapping but as a person, I think he may be the anti christ..he unleashed 50 on us which at the time seemed like a blessin..we as black peopledont hold anyonw accountable for what our fore fathers left us. This game called hip hop has not only been told but sold. Pretty soon hip hop will be like soda either you buy coke (50 or EM) or pepsi (insert your fave rapper with millions and no skills)
    theres only 4 majors (labels)that control the whole music game.no longer is the black man ingenuitive and a master at makin a way when there is none..we have become dikk riders and subservient, independent on one of these 4 majors for our “food”. Its like we cant feed ourselves..we need massas hand on our forks..If jim jones signs with koch and sells a 100,000 he must be broke..if he sign to innerscope and sell a million then he must be broke..like what is broke to yall niggaz? and what does it matter if the music is good?..you niggaz is white washed.
    Michael Jackson is in Dubai moochin off Arabs…this the same nigga that was so rich 5 years ago..you niggaz got the game twisted. If jay is worth 400 mil..its some white man behind him worth 4 billion..niggaz dont create shit, we should have been had our own black owned distibution, all this power 50 got and he uses it to help Eminem destroy the BIBLE OF HIP HOP? ..and yall see that as bein a good thing? They shoulda never gave you niggaz money.

    SMH @ growm folks not bein able to stay focused..lol 50 is such a hot topic lol..you niggaz ever see that web pic where it says “arguin online is like the special olympics? even if u win your still a retard”..well substitute “online” with “with 50 cent dikk riders”

    “Pickin cotton was bad ..but at least we picked it together”

  33. El Feces Loco's Brain Says:

    ^^^^^^^that niggas on point like a pencil..he should write a book.^^^^^^

  34. TYRONEBIGGUMS Says:

    ill give it to you el feces you just broke down the science on that shit.

  35. Demitasse Says:

    Hola .El Feces Loco,
    Im a half black half Asian lady.(Im sayin this just incase Dogs shit)
    yo Im feeling your shit brotha, but you brought the shit up about eminem callin black women hoes and bitches I’ve got some stuff to say about that so listen
    Brotha. Can’t we just accept Em ‘s explanation that He was just an angry kid When he said such things.
    and I guess you have checked emenem’s words out about “Black bitch ,ho” whatever,
    Let me ask you some,, Didn’t the words come across your mind as very infatile and Juvinile ..and Wasn’t it so clear that He was just a “very emotional and vulnerable crybaby” who got flipped by this black chick who was playing with him
    And Look. When white woman hurts Em’s feelings,Em talks about choppin her off with a Texas chain saw and putting her in the trunk,or chokes the girl to death. When black woman hurts his feelings ,umm if I remembered it correctly There is NO talk of VIOLENCE am I correct?
    Look We folks, don’t got no time to be trippin off at some stupid shits like that. We are far way bigger than that.you feel me?
    But , I gotta say….if Em was ma man and ran his mouth about me like that in person. That motherfucker’s dead
    a long ago.

    anyways.
    Keep up the good work brothas.
    I got none but love for ya all

    Donna,

    EL FECES GETS A BIGGUP FOR THAT ONE.

  37. Reninatronix Says:

    *El Feces ain’t sayin’ shit.

    Power is power. There will never be a Black FILM Company that can green light ‘ish nor will there be a Black distribution company.

    For that matter there WILL NEVER BE A HALLE/DENZEL F*ck movie. (Who wants to two en-ch-ch-r-eses actually LOVE each other on screen? But I digress. (the reason this will happen is b/c society will never put out entertainment that affirms black love. trust. puts my momma on ‘nat).

    The HIP HOP economy is like the blogging economy which is like the GLOBAL economy. (Peep the New York Magazine economic analysis of bloggy cash/history).

    a. We missed our chance. Folks had to get their distribution hussle up in 86-92. That window has shut folks.

    b. The nature of communities is for a few people to have the cheese and for everyone else to hussle to get chunks. (I ain’t fasinated w/ sharks for NOTHIN’ fam).

    c. Because folks in the 80’s 90’s failed to “CASH IN” on HH in its toddler years, ain’t no catch up fam.

    d.There is TOO much cheese to be made in HH and TRUST, the four MAJORS IS NOT gonna give that shit up fam. On principle.

    we have become dikk riders and subservient, independent on one of these 4 majors for our “food”. Its like we cant feed ourselves..we need massas hand on our forks..
    ——————————-
    Welcome to HH

    If jim jones signs with koch and sells a 100,000 he must be broke..if he sign to innerscope and sell a million then he must be broke..l..
    ————————————
    Yeah. Cuz niggas buy more than they make. Easy.

    Like what is broke to yall niggaz? and what does it matter if the music is good?..you niggaz is white washed.
    ————————————
    a. Ironic, in that White people have allways been some of the LARGEST purchasers of Black American music from Doo Wop to Ye Ye.
    b. White washed like how?
    c. Good Music is relative.

    *I can’t help it, I am learning to argue for a living. Heaven help us.

  38. HOLLYHOOD (AN AFTERMATH ARTIST!) Says:

    FREE YAYO!!!!!!!!!!AGAIN!!!!!

  39. Lili Says:

    Seems like we’ve got a good argument brewing here.
    Or discussion, rather.

    If only we could get a discussion flowing on a larger scale, across HH and Black America.

    BTW- All hope isn’t gone. If we have artists who aren’t simply swayed by the $ and choose to talk about more real subject matter, or maybe just less bullshit….wait —maybe if our ppl would start reacting to the music of artists talking bout real shit…DING DING DING— we could reclaim the essence of HH. For now, the $ isn’t the most important thing; it will eventually come. If we can sway and control the the focus of HH subject matter, make the real music made by real artists cool and popular in our own eyes, pop culture followers will follow us, cuz you know “everybody wanna be a nigga, but no one wants to be a nigga”.

    We can’t only associate getting money with HH. If we pump out focused entrepenuers and get more kids in college, we can see a lot more money being generated in the Black community within a generation.
    With more of one’s own money, the less dependent he/she is on the contributions of others who will undoubtedly and deservedly want a say in the product that is being produced.

    Long story short: sure, for now it looks somewhat glim, but it’s still in our hands. Apprx. 4 labels are running this shit, but if

    1) if we can look in the mirror and try to take steps to reclaim what is ours, if HH is destined to stay –and it is– we can still reclaim leverage in our artform
    2) the artists already in it can see fit to get off the bandwaggon and stop making bullshit (if that indeed is what they are making) and start contributing something decent to HH society then maybe more ppl will react and go for more real artistry.

    Now..what has to come first, the chicken or the egg?
