  3. cOLD Says:

    Yo how come you aint hear shit more from Dehaven, after Jay finally addressed him with the line

    ” Fuck dehaven for caving, thats why we dont speak made men aint supposed to make statements”

    Isnt that what Dehaven wanted; Jay to acknowledge his existence.

    You think Jay gave the nigga some hush money
    or
    Or what Jay said struck a cord and Dehaven realized he was being bitchmade by airing the dirty laundry and that it is in fact true made men dont talk reckless regardless.

    ———-

    Jay did get Nas and Kiss a nice grip of money and a good situation before his departure from defJam, applaud him for that.

    If you aint like the album thats kool, but personally i fuck with it. Thats whole album is inspirational, like it makes me wanna make mad money, makes me wanna rock a fresh suit and sit in a corner office one day….is that so bad? To each is own

  11. ELECTROGREMLINcs88 Says:

    In a $150 million deal certain to rock what remains of the record industry, Jay-Z has announced plans to depart Def Jam records and give the totality of his creative output — from songs to touring revenue to un-hatched entrepreneurial ideas — to concert promotion behemoth Live Nation. As Jay-Z told the New York Times, which broke the story on its website last night, “I’ve turned into the Rolling Stones of hip hop.”

  14. Digital scales Says:

    nah thats not bad thats hip hop right there….

    i might wanna go buy a farm and live in the middle of cropville usa…that might make a nigga happy, but like you said to each his own

  15. ELECTROGREMLINcs88 Says:

    Live Nation is expected to furnish Jay-Z, born Shawn Carter, with $5 million in seed money annually for his own label, publishing arm and management company, with significantly more funds available for future acquisitions and expansion. He will also receive a $25 million upfront payment and $10 million per album for a minimum of three albums over the next decade.

  64. El Feces Loco Says:

    @ El Feces Loco.

    NO DISRESPECT BY ANY MEANS BUT……………..

    U MAD?

    ^^^No disrespect taken,..yea I’m mad but not at Jay but moreso at the “fans” that crown a man as “Hov” but this said “Hov” does nothing for his people, “Hov” is only concerned with making “Hov” rich and if you listen to “Hov” he’ll tell you himself.

    A hip hop dude named “Hov” should be more about the people(in my opinion). If I was mad at ‘Hov” for making money I’d be mad at 50 also which isnt the case, “Hov” has done nothing to enlift his people. He destroyed a black owned record label to go work for white corporations, mainly for the same amount of money..there’s nothing LIVEAID can do for “Hov” that “Hov” shouldnt be able to do for himself being that he is “Hov”.

    50 takes risks(signing vitawater when everyone else was doing liquor, moving his artists to thisis50.com to capitalize on digi movement). “Hov” has done nothing but get a cushy job up at DJ and then following in the footsteps of U2 and Madonna by signing with LIVEAID.

    A guy crowned “Hov” should be more into creating jobs and opportunities for his people, being more visible in the political and social areas. Hov can rap about the gun and drug shit but its above him to speak to the youth about doing all the dumb shit. “Hov” embodied the whole FRANK LUCAS do for self mentality a few months ago then now he does a deal Frank Lucas would laugh at.

    Since I’ve been on NR Ive challenged Simon and others to show me “Hov’s” contribution to the communities he helped deteriorate with his music and they have only showed me a few pics from XMAS of “HOv” handing out turkeys and the pics of his personal jet dropping off water to somalians before his album dropped.

    If Jay retired and became an executive I’d have less of a problem..but I see the hipocrisy in sensationalizing an image like that of Frank Lucas but then doing deals and illustrating to your people an image more like Frank Perdue

    Disclaimer: Jay isnt responsible for all crime, poverty, state of rap, etc…but ME personally… I just put more stock in a nigga that calls himself GOD.

    PS: NIggas said i should hate Puffy also..Puffy had the Vote or Die movement and Pro-Active…word to preserving my sexy.

I didnt care becaus e i gor my work clothes on… you know… my $20 slip ans slides and my tight blue khakis. I say “my bad. but now that I’m hear you seem like someone pretty cool that I MIGHT want to get to know. do you have a man?” She says no. I’m like give me your number so I can hit you up. She does and smiles. I smile at her old bird. I tel her Imma hit her up later, wave to her ole bird, and hop back in the hoo ride bending the corner so slow blasting nas’ verse on “success”

    you hear yourself? you’re salty.

    ….. Listen theres no denying that when he

    ” took off the blazer and lossened up the tie /
    nigga fell in love and superman died ”

    but at the same time thats not where his focus is now, he doesn’t care about rap pas much as he cares about making his money now, so consider him retired or past his prime with his mind focused on money only and learn to live with it, everyone falls off to some degree one way or another I can’t hate that his rap skills have suffered while his bank account benefits, good for him however he should be trying to put other good music on to fill his spot for that he is foul but he is a greedy selfish bastard this isn’t exactly new news is it ? and for that matter he damn sure ain’t the only one like that, so let the man get his gwap it isn’t coming out of my pocket
