Kanye & Curtis Rolling Stone Cover

kanye-curtis-rs-cvr.jpg 

These guys look like they’re about to smooch.

Excerpts from the two features: Curtis | Kanye 

Edit: So YN just pointed out that Nah Right is listed in a "5 Reasons Hip-Hop is Still Alive" sidebar to the Kanye/50 stories in the book. I guess I have to go pick up a copy now.

    Cosign Clappadonna.. You couldn’t get more different than Doggystyle [||] and Enter the Wu Tang.

    Andre 3000 said it best a few years ago: “What’s killing hip-hip are the super-producers and the stylists because they’re telling you ‘this is what hip-hop should sound like’ and ‘this is what a rapper should look like’.”

    Shit is true.. The industry is soooo dick-rider-ish it’s obscene. People jump on trends and beat them to death. It’s sickening.

    ^^^
    CUZ, niggas is corny! No Pussy gettin ass niggas, get a lil’money & wanna be ballers & shit, niggas is corny, Got no game, got no style.

    …corny niggas get around these Monkey ass hos and tell’em they hot, bitches all flabby wit lumps in they ass… bitches aint hot, u bitches is leftovers, monkey ass hos cant even fit a pair of Republics or trues, Lard ass Hos.

    corny Niggas Fucked the whole game up, and its them same Corny no pussy gettin niggas Runnin around fuckin men on the low. …the WHOLE shit needs a douche!

    and u cant blame the Bama ass niggas, they always been in they SLOW ass lane, but its so many Corny niggas in the game, they just doin they thing & makin money on the shit.

    shit, all them bama niggas need a 1 hit, something that they lil’Sister can strip to while she @ work, and they straight. thats why we got the influx of 1 hit wonders around this bitch.

    I don’t think people should blame the south rappers for hip hop dying or not as popping……they should really blame New Yorks rappers for being lazy and not holding their own (n/h) when its time to step up…….we saw it happen in the NWA days and its happening again……if dudes kept making the good music for NY and not that bullshit thats on the radio we wouldn’t be worry if Hip Hop lost…..the south is doing what the south does…….so should New York…..

  22. icon (trillbert arenas) Says:

    SAN ANTONIO—Two-time NBA MVP Tim Duncan has been sitting in his living room next to his packed gym bag and clad in his Spurs warm-up jersey for the past three months, concerned teammates reported Monday. “I called him several times and he didn’t pick up,” said guard Tony Parker. “And when I got worried enough to go look through his window, I saw him just sitting there. I’m pretty sure he’s conscious and not in any pain, but it doesn’t look like he’s moved since late June.” The Spurs front office confirmed that Duncan requested a call at midnight on Oct. 1 to ensure he did not miss the first day of training camp

    on 50 worst sales days, i think kanye still would nt match up sales speaking.50 albums average 9.5 mill sold worldwide and kanye never went 4x cmon.he is in the league with TI, luda,jeezy, etc.even game went 5x.why dont yall see there is a big difference, same as when yall was comparing 50 to game. you niggas are all delusional.50 is a monster in the world of rap music and us internet bloggers are a very very small minority and dont affect sales.200k ppl hate 50 and 10 mill love him, do the math”it does’nt matter”

    Yeppers. With the exception of the delusional stans impressed by his money and a few girls who get all tingly in the jiblets at the site of Curtis’ B-Cups, the rest of the world was sick of Curtis in 2004. People think Kanye is just as arrogant, but they can’t deny his talent.

    But it’s the same with 50 cent stannery, ninjas be in high school or elementary love 50 cent just because it’s 50 cent (c)two times, not for the rubbish music he puts out.

  73. Rey Says:

    50 Lost. Period. He made his money with minimal talent and helped destroy rap in the process. Kanye West is the biggest musical star in the world along with Justin Timberlake. If they did a record it’d be the end of the world as we know it, unlike 50 screwing the pooch with Ayo Crapnology.

    @ Ike– That satellite radio is pretty sweet as long as you mostly steer clear of the top 40 stations.

  74. Dem aka GOMW,P Says:

    Right now, industry analysts estimate sales for Kanye and 50 to land in the 500,000-600,000 range, with Chesney just below, unless certain factors intervene. “A key variable is whether either of the two rappers’ albums leaks on the Internet,” says Trakin. (Some sites already claim to have them).

    “The rap audience is more attuned to the Internet,” says Trakin. “The country audience is not as digitally sophisticated.”

    More, says Neal, “Kenny’s album will almost certainly sell consistently for the next year, [and] he’s much more prolific than either Kanye or 50. So, for him … it’s certainly not something to threaten retirement over.”

    ^^ that’s right. act like my boy KC ain’t even in the race. rockin niggas to sleep… then when they realize the truf… it’ll be too late.

    **We’re speaking on 9-11, because the conflict is more interesting that the content…just like niggas was bigging up the Camron/Jay beef, and yet Cam only moved like 200K units his first week…are you serious saying he doesn’t need a buzz? GTFOH…the music industry runs on buzz and promotion….As far as the Massacre, I never spoke on it, but it did have that gay ass Candy Shop single, which was a pop music monster, even if it was just Magic Stick with different words, lol…50’s not doing nowhere close to 10million this time around, or at least I can’t see him doing it, but then again, I don’t work in the music industry, so who knows….and I have no hate whatsoever for duke…I would like to see him, or any other minority do well…he seems like an aiight type nigga, for the most part, but you’re kidding yourself if you say that he’s a better musician than ye…Last time, when Ye went against Yayo and smashed him on the charts, Yayo was talking that “my sales were better in the hood, though” garbage…I really hope that 50 doesn’t go out like that…

    Jay was rusty on KC, and his hooks lacked.. He spent too much time defending growing old, not realizing that his fans couldn’t give a shit how old he was.. he let the Dipshits and their down syndrome-ass fans get to him. Album was still 3/5 tho’.

    Yep.. 50’s done his gimmick to death and the general public is like, “Okay, enough with the aggressive content”.. We know his story already, and he’s just the ultimate amalgam of every hip hop cliche ever.

    @ Spot– I understand that.. It’s just that, IMO, nowadays the best rappers, the most clever ones–are the “conscious” MCs–I’m more into lyrics now than evar before, and the lyrical dudes are the ones I gravitate to, and as time goes on, those are the ones that I support.. ‘Ye isn’t really lyrical but he’s got a gift for turning a phrase, on some inspirational shit.

  123. ja WHO? Says:

    50 really dropped some real shit during his recent interview claiming that Def Jam buys albums to make their artists look better. The allegation by one Curtis Jackson that Def Jam Records artificially inflates the soundscan numbers, the foundation by which Hip-hop’s frontin’ money machine is build upon, in order to make their artists look like bigger stars. The logic probably being that consumers will use the bandwagon mentality and buy the record because, shit everyone else is buying it.

    The logic of buying records works in so many ways that benefit the artist that even if Def Jam doesn’t buy records, it’s a really good idea. Having an artist do well in the Billboard standings pretty much convinced me to buy The Evolution of Robin Thicke, and having an artist bomb saved me from buying the abomination known as The Preacher’s Son by Wyclef Jean, who debuted at #22 back in 2003.

    It is a little strange that all big Def Jam debuts drop like rocks after their first-week debuts. Most notably, Jay-Z’s Kingdom Come, that sold 680,052 records in it’s first week, and then dropped a whopping -79% to 139,933 records the next week. The same repetition occurred with Nas, putting up 354,524 sales in week one, and falling to 101,103 units in week two, a 71% decrease. Ludacris -67%, Bobby Valentino, -63% week 2, Fabolous -63%, etc.

    Typically you can go to hitsdailydouble.com and get a running total of each week’s record sales as they happen, which would give the execs at Def Jam ample time to go and “fix the situation.” Remember the story that Nas was on pace to sell about 200 thousand albums for the first week of Hip-Hop is Dead, and suddenly that number jumps to 355 thousand. Which makes you think why Def Jam decided to not give Nas a video for a third single, if his soundscan numbers don’t actually reflect his actual level of interest from the public, why bother spending money on another video? I mean a third video for an artist like Nas nowadays is pretty much a given, so something weird is going on — like a company spending Nas’ promotion budget on buying up records. 50 hasn’t even dropped his album and he has 4 videos already. Fabolous might not even go gold and he has 3 videos out.

    The same can be said for Jay-Z, why in the world would the largest first-week debut in Hip-Hop since Late Registration not have a third single? No obligatory Jay-Z and Beyonce single. The guy is the president of the record company and he doesn’t get a third video.

    What does that mean for Kanye? I don’t know, but if Kanye drops 70% on his second week, and then doesn’t drop a video for the T-Pain collaboration or something, we’ll know some fishy stuff is going on. Note: Late Registration dropped 67% week 2.

    CURTIS 9/11

  124. Jeter22 Says:

    Music wise Kanye came original and I like that oh and for the record I love his album its just not better then his last IMO… It takes talent to do with both those dudes do and it takes a serious connection with PEOPLE to move 10 million albums 2x’s in a row so with that being said I can’t take anything from either man…

    Let Kanye run a team the way 50 does and have almost (w/the exception of Yayo) everyone he originally started with be a platnum selling artist then the argument gets interesting…

    I’m tired of the 50 and Kanye hate I’m tired of the fucking bias I see on these gay ass blogs fags acting like 50 Cent killed there little sister so they gone bring him down ITS LAME ALREADY!!GET OVER THE SHIT ESGAY PLEASE!

    Let look at the Hype Kanye is getting for this album, Nom. for MTV album of a year for an album that hasn’t even been released, GQ’s International Man Of The year, yo I would seriously go on but thats enough its not hard to see who the media outlets want to win the sales battle and I’m betting soundscan will reflect that as well……

    Shit won’t surprise me!

  125. Jeter22 Says:

    @ Ja Who

    Yo, go listen to that track “Queen” with LL and 50 etc. in LL’s verse he said “I don’t rigg soundscan” and I take it that was directed toward Def Jam because that entire verse was and now lets be honest if that is what they do over there who would know better the Mr. Def Jam himself LL Cool J? Which is why I’m inclined to believe that shit is very true….

    As for Jay-Z not getting a third single, well maybe there wasn’t a song worth creating a video for on that album but lets really breakdown dudes first week, remember they were giving away copies of his album for everyone that purchased either season tickets to the nets or regular season game packages? So ou’d have to ask yourself how many of those records did the nets purchase in advance in order to do that? You know he got those scans! And then he was doing budwiser commercials etc. so there are a number of reasons he hit that 690 none of which was because his following is that major…

    $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

    ^I don’t want a Blueprint or Graduation out of 50. I just want him to shut the f*ck up!

  128. Jeter22 Says:

    Even if the Nets only purchased 25k copies you’d seriously have to ask yourself how many copies did Jay’s corporate sponsors purchase of his CD knowing that record sales are a reflection of popularity and with popularity comes visibility and with that comes the around the clock selling of there brand?

    Its all smart business but thats why you saw suck a massive drop in his second week!! So to sum it all up between Def Jam sound scan trick and the nets and the rest of Jay’s new buddies thats how he got to 690 and thats also why he did 16o or whatever in week two…

    Logic wins!!

    Personally I’d prefer to do 500 then 450, 325, 290 etc etc and end up at 3 million then rigg the shit and look like a fool.. But again this is something else you canblame on 50 if he didn’t do 800 wk one on Get Rich and then 900 in week two or 1.1 in week one in 4days on the Massacre then 950 week two people wouldn’t be under so much presure to drop heat..

  130. THE UNDERWRITER Says:

    If you dorks buy Curtis’s album instead of Kanye’s – especially considering that both have now leaked – you’re idiots.

    I’ll make a promise like Curtis did. If Fif-Tee’s album sells more, it won’t matter if he releases another Hip-Hop album or not. I won’t buy another one again.

    Laughing straight to the bank with that one (depositing money that would have gone to wack rappers’ pockets).

    May Graduation Day live.

    And oh yeah, where the phuck is “Courtesy Curtis?” Damn, Cam. Come back home with me. No homo.
