Hip Hop Lives

In case you haven’t heard:

Nas scores his third No. 1 on The Billboard 200 this week with his eighth studio set, "Hip Hop Is Dead." The Def Jam effort moved 355,000 copies last week in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The rapper’s last effort, "Street’s Disciple," peaked at No. 5 on the chart. Nas’ two other sets to take the summit were 1999’s "I Am… The Autobiography" and 1996’s "It Was Written." 

Personally, I’m proud of the Little Homey. He stepped up and made a much better album than Street’s Disciple and people went out and copped it..it’s as simple as that. 

"I’ll tell you what, we’ll look at them first week numbers and we’ll talk about it"Young Jeezy on Nas

Let’s talk about it.

    ^^you keep referring to “the south.” why don’t you refer to whoever from the south you are talking about? not everyone from the south took issue with the phrase “hip hop is dead.” you continously say “the south” is stupid for getting mad at people talking shit about bullshit south rappers. i take this to mean that people are talking about individual artists and not an entire region so why get upset right? however, you can’t even follow your own advice because you continously refer to an entire region.

    hi biggums

    HI SHANTI AND YOU GOT A POINT BUT LUDA, T.I. JEEZY,FIELD MOB , EVERY PERSON FROM THE SOUTH THAT COMES ON HERE IS ALWAYS TALKING BOUT HOW WE HATE ON THE SOUTH BECAUSE I DISSED ONE ARTIST

    I JUST SAY YOU PEOPLE FROM THE SOUTH WHO GET SO OFFENDED WHEN WE DISS JEEZY OR LIL FLIP NEED TO SLOW YOUR ROLL, EVERYTIME I DISS ONE OF THEM I’M ” HATING ON THE SOUTH ‘ WHEN I JUST HATE THAT MUSIC

    NOW GO READ EVERYTHING I SAID AND REALIZE I DIDNT CALL OUT THE WHOLE SOUTH BUT ONLY THE SOUTHERN PEOPLE WHO GET OFFENDED JUST CAUSE I DISS A COUPLE I DISS SOME SOUTHERN ARTISTS, AND REALIZE ALL I WAS SAYING WAS ITS PEOPLE IN THE SOUTH TAKING THE SHOTS AT THE EAST COAST AND PEOPLE IN THE SOUTH CREATING TENSION WITH THE EAST BY BEING OFFENDED BY NONSENSE, NO ONE DISSED THE SOUTH AS A WHOLE SO STOP ACTING LIKE THEY DID

    @ biggums

    before i made my comment i went back and read everything you said. i try not to make uninformed comments. however, you repeatedly said “the south needs to do this and the south needs to stop doing that.” i didn’t take offense to it or anything but i want you to realize that your words may lead some to believe you are generalizing and this is probably why people take offense to some of the things you say and cause some folks to believe you got ana(beef) with the entire south. like you say though-w/e, w/e, w/e.

  4. TYRONEBIGGUMS71 Says:

    ^^^ YES IT IS TRUE BUT I SAID IT LIKE ITS PEOPLE FROM THE SOUTH TAKING SHOTS AT THE EAST COAST, ITS THE PEOPLE IN THE SOUTH THAT GET OFFENDED WHEN I SAY CASH MONEY SUCKS, THEY TAKE IT LIKE I’M DISSING THEM, I SAID I HAVE NEVER HEARD ANYONE FROM NYC AREA CALL OUT THE SOUTH AS A WHOLE BUT PEOPLE FROM THE SOUTH STAY CALLING OUT NYC AND THE EAST COAST AND THEY STAY BITCHING ABOUT YET, YES TECHNICALLY I GROUP THEM ALL TOGETHER BUT YOU SHOULD ALL BE ABLE TO REALIZE WHEN I TYPE THAT I DON;T MEAN EVERYONE THAT LIVES BELOW THE MASON DIXON LINE I’M TALKING ABOUT ALL THE ONES BITCHING AND INSTEAD OF TYPING OUT EACH INDIVUAL NAME I JUST SAY ITS THE SOUTH GETTING MAD BECAUSE IT IS I STILL AINT HEAR ANYONE DIRECTLY DISS THE ENTIRE SOUTH BUT I HEAR THE SOUTH COMPLAINING ABOUT IT AND THATS JUST REAL TALK

    […] Nasty Nas moved 355,000 units last week to take home crown. I expected Hip Hop Is Dead to have a strong showing, but I honestly was thinking it’d be 200 something albums sold. Even crazier to me is that Nas beat out Jeezy’s first week album sales of 352,000 from the prior week, which made the Snowman look even sillier for stating “I’ll tell you what, we’ll look at them first week numbers and we’ll talk about it” (Via: Nah Right). In any case, it’s good to see the youngsters will get a little history lesson with the new Nas album and for the record I do like Jeezy’s work.            […]

    ^^Cosign Yid

    Big ups to Nas for the “Hip hop is dead” campaign. Not only did he sell units but he exposed a lot of insecure artists. Jeezy and Wayne were 2 of my favorite new artists but they lost me with their bitch tendencies. Hip hop will die if the public continues to put money in the pockets of faggots and fake ass street cats who don’t talk it how they b it.

  13. BARKLEY Says:

    Congrats to Nas and Jeezy for making two hot ass albums that BOTH prove that Hip Hop is not dead, over 300,000 purchases in one week for both albums keep the lights on in hip-hop. On another note, all that NY vs. South bullshit is tired and ignorant, (Eskay, I know you a NY media nigga, but you don’t have to add more fuel to the NY vs. South fire everytime a New Yorker finally does some numberss (i.e. Jay’s first week and Nas’s first week. Both posts were followed by an uneccessary comment about the south). You seem like a smart dude, so you know Jeezy was not talking about Nas when he made that comment about numbers, and you know it!, he was talking about his numbers) Hopefully in ’07 New York hip-hop will sell and get some airplay, so ya’ll can stop bitching about the south.

  14. G7 Says:

    in Jeezy’s case, his adlibs are better than his lyrics. that’s sad : (

  15. So??? Says:

    Ummm. How can I be down? I come here often and watch from the sidelines. I know my Hip-Hop. From Special Ed to Lupe. From Biz Markie to Special K. I got it acronym style via N.W.A & A.T.L, C.M.W but to name a few….

    * waits for the wet bricks dipped in arsenic to rain down from the keyboards of the chosen few *

    *Okaay..*

    Ironic that we end they year with Jay & Nas. Considering they are supposedly over.. Oh and the only album I bought apart from Nas this month was ‘The Shining’. Love the Common joints and the Monche cut is hotter than napalm in Nam. As for ‘Won’t Do’? Sweeter than waking up in the Playboy mansion on a Friday night with a pocketful of Viagra. I digress.

    I think Nas is dope and Jeezy is well..dopey.

    Nas is hypocritical, poetical, political, gangster, gutter, getting money. In short a man for all seasons.

    Jeezy is a D-Boy. Um thats it. Oh yeah and a hypothetical snitch. On himself. Live it. Ok. Rap it? Nah we don’t believe you, you need more people.

    Monie>Jeezy>Gay Ass Weezy

    D.Billz ( Real regal ruler of Nah Right )>Biggums>Nbmore> Dug/Plug/Rug/Who cares?>amoeba…Damn I am giving props to a commentator on somebody elses blog. Smh@me. Guess that makes me a Tan of the lowest degree. Right, right?

    Nah Right gives me jokes. Best blog alongside TSS ( they gots freeness/music, you don’t..).

    Smells like a mix of Teen & Old Spirit..

  17. Mail Man Says:

    Nas’s album is straight garbage. I’m sorry the only reason he sold was because of all the pub. As far as a good record NAH wrong.

    You muthafuckaz was the first people screamin record sales don’t mean anything (right after jeezy shit-ted on escobar about checking record sales).

    I am so confused is it album sales or not

  18. Shanti Says:

    I am so confused is it album sales or not

    ^^some people on here only bring up high or low record sales on here when it adds to their argument. in this case it was brought up because jeezy brought it up. however in other instances its brought up to show how great an artist is (i.e. when people on here brag on jay-z’s record sales) or low sales are dismissed to show how stupid the public is (i.e. styles p & ghostface sales). obviously it seems as if it should be one or the other (either high record sales =greatness or low sales= stupid public) but perhaps everyone doesn’t see it like that.

  19. Shanti Says:

    ^^oh and just to adlib i know there are other factors to take into account with record sales (such as advertisement etc.) but that doesnt take away from the fact that folks on here do flip flop between record sales being important to record sales not meaning anything.

    ^what did I say following Kingdom Come? and what did I say today that was directed at the South? I’m just letting Jeezy know that it’s time to talk. And check the stats, New York niggas do numbers every year.

  22. Shanti Says:

    record sales are down in hip hop across the board–east coast, south, west, midwest. sure we had jay z and tip step out and both sell over 500,000 their first weeks but that’s not common and look at all the promotion both artist had just to sell (ti had a movie and jay z had budweiser, the whole out of retirement shit, water for life and etc). i wonder how much 50 cent would sell right now if he dropped a new album. however, since he says his next album will be “soulful” and he’s working with r&b producers he might be in the r&b category and do justin timberlake and beyonce numbers.

    ok first of all nas is some bush, the song and video “hip hop is dead” is the wackest thing i have ever seen. i used to like nas a lot back in the day, but hes just so wack nowadays. its not the 90s anymore, he needs to stop acting like an old ass faggot, rapping like mc shan or some shit. jeezy’s album was fire, lets talk about record sales, jeezy moved 353k on his sophmore cd! nas probably sold 10 copies the first week of his sophmore cd. this is nas’ 8th cd or somethin its about time he sold some records, hes so broke he had to reuse the same single from his last album! point is:
    jeezy>nas
    jim jones>nas
    the inspiration>hip hop is dead

    ^^^ If Nas’ album is garbage then Jeezy’s can’t be defined…lol.
    When Jeezy gets dissed, why do his fans defend him on some North vs South shit?? Northerners diss G-Unit and Dipset all day on here. It doesn’t matter where you’re from, if you’re garbage you’re garbage. It’s simple as that.
