  3. Joe 88 Says:

    It’s all about the Dirty South next week, as rap entrepreneur’s sixth release, the Grand Hustle/Atlantic album Paper Trail, will debut on top of the HITS sales chart with 550k next week, fueled by the #1 CHR/Rhythmic single, “Whatever You Like.”

    ^^^
    Lol, i think its because niggas was spoiled for a while with just the straight zshare link, we some comfortable ass niggas…(no)

  9. TheCo!!inB Says:

    Dro raps circles around TIP, if he could get better production this time around that’d be sweet cause the beats on best thang smokin were doo doo and cream

  10. Joe 88 Says:

    Dro raps circles around TIP,

    ^Negative

    >if he could get better production this time around that’d be sweet cause the beats on best thang smokin were doo doo and cream

    ^Co-sign, his gangsta grill was better than the album, but hear me dry is a classic dro song

    FACT: Dro knows he has the juice cause his whip is frutopia
    *sorry about the spam post*

  24. Ghost Writer Says:

    50 Cent > Jay-z

  25. Joe 88 Says:

    Joe you still havent heard the whole this in entirety?

    ^Nope, i’ll get to it tho, for some reason, i’m not interested in listening to this album yet. Crazy

  26. Shanti Says:

    sometimes I feel like dro > tip but then when I listen to shit like that superstar remix or even I stil love u I realize that TI >> Dro because TIP can actually talk about something serious. Dro is very entertaining tho. when people claim to like gucci mane because he’s entertaining or says funny shit i’m like just listen to dro. he’s more entertaining and much better at what he does.

  27. Coke Lines Says:

    Big up Jay for this

  28. TheCo!!inB Says:

    FACT: Dro is a hood nigga from bankhead who stayed by gramma nana
    *paper trail sounds like her spit that entire album off paper…..eh, ya like whatcha like

  29. Joe 88 Says:

    Dro is entertaining, and to me, entertaining music > _________

    But he still aint betta than T.I, aint no way, i’m dissapointed in dro last mixtape “I am legend” them beats was wacktacular

  30. eskay Says:

    Dro > Tip all day.

    DIRT is flames Chase, cop early and often.

  31. R.J.Orion Says:

    *lookalikes*

    Murs & Chewbacca

  32. Mr. Papagiorgio Says:

    i must say that paper trail has grown on me [ll]. . . but damn, 550K in a week is wild shit! is that the second highest debut this year behind wayne?

  33. D. Billz Says:

    Dro > Tip all day.

    ^Sho’nuff

  34. TheCo!!inB Says:

    @ Shanti
    what you’re saying is extremely valid, dro has yet to really delve deep into serious issues. but from a technical aspect as a lyricist dro is ions ahead of clifford.
    FACT: women think Dro is pimping in linen and salamander sandals

  35. R.J.Orion Says:

    ^^^Gala Speech

    ___________

    ayo?

  36. Mr. Papagiorgio Says:

    so you niggas is tellin me that dro first album is worth listenin to? i thought after “shoulder lean”, if this nigga didn’t have clifford on the hook, it was a wrap. . . .

  37. eskay Says:

    Tip has the ability to be better than Dro, but he dumbs down. I haven’t really listend to Paper Trail yet though, and he is spitting kinda crazy on what I have heard, minus Whatever You Like.

  38. nation v3.1 build Says:

    what up fags

    ^
    I thought it only dropped this tuesday……he really sold 550k? Facts?

  40. Joe 88 Says:

    Dro got kinda deep on “hear me cry” (n/h) he touched me on that track (a/n/h)

  41. Mr. Papagiorgio Says:

    damn, niggas ain’t even peep hov got a fresh cut!!

    but i’ll be damned if this nigga hov face don’t look like a football bein held for a field goal . . . .

  42. E AKA THE REAL NORIEAGA Says:

    Dro’s got the best car similies in the game

  43. R.J.Orion Says:

    actually, “Murs” sounds like something Chewbacca would say.

    “MUUUUUURRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR……..”

  44. nation v3.1 build Says:

    >> actually, “Murs” sounds like something Chewbacca would say.

    very fucking clever

    Tip has the ability to be better than Dro, but he dumbs down.

    ^Which is why I stopped giving a fuck a loooooong time ago. The transition from “I’m Serious” all the way up until that doo-doo fest about 3 albums ago.

  46. Mr. Papagiorgio Says:

    ^He’s on Jada’s heels, but not quite.

  48. eskay Says:

    >>so you niggas is tellin me that dro first album is worth listenin to? i thought after “shoulder lean”, if this nigga didn’t have clifford on the hook, it was a wrap. .

    Dro first album is bananas. and no how, no way should I like Shoulder Lean, but I love that song.

    Suicide doors, Brown Rover look like pok n beans
    Erybody know me in the club cuz they smokin’ me..Dro
    Hoes scopin’ me, ice come from Boca Raton
    Hundred carats have ’em froze for an eon
    Red, black, and white Chevy now I’m ridin’ Deion
    Put them lights on in my rims, now I’m ridin’ neon
    Our cars look like cra-yon, hoes know I’m the man though
    I can shoulder lean… ionno how to dance thooooo

  49. E AKA THE REAL NORIEAGA Says:

    I stopped listening to T.I after Urban Legend,

    he’s had the same formula for every album it got old after awhile(same thing happened with DMX)

  50. Shanti Says:

    technical aspect as a lyricist dro is ions ahead of clifford.
    >> true…well maybe not ions but yeah technically dro is better.

    *cops*

    downloads.

    i mean, let’s just keep it real here.

  52. Joe 88 Says:

    he’s had the same formula for every album it got old after awhile(same thing happened with DMX)

    ^From what I hear, paper trail is different from the last cd. I think shanti got it right when she said

    Paper Trail = 2008 Urban legend

    *Bout to see what this willie da kid album bout*

  53. Geronimo Newton Says:

    International Hov, Been Havin A Flow……

    This nigga here……I fucking love it……

    And for the record T.I.>Dro…..but both of em are dead ass nice imo

  54. TheCo!!inB Says:

    “Everything you got in your crib I got in my car, except for the bar” -Jada 1999-
    I don’t even think Tip dumbs down I just think he doesn’t have it. If you really listen to Dro’s wordplay on Shoulder Lean alone he’s out-rapped Tip’s entire catalogue

  55. Mr. Papagiorgio Says:

    sorry, shoulda been:

    *cops*

    *downloads*.

  56. R.J.Orion Says:

    Dro >>>>> T.I.

    not even remotely close.

    Dro just needs some Black Milk beats.

  57. thekid10705 Says:

    Jay-Z is a rapper??

  58. Big_Seth Says:

    DRO KILLED Rubberband Banks too.

    The hook is a lil annoying, but his lyrics are dope.

  59. PHOENIXXX Says:

    Grafh>>>>>>>>>>T.I. and Dro

  60. Joe 88 Says:

    If you really listen to Dro’s wordplay on Shoulder Lean alone he’s out-rapped Tip’s entire catalogue

    ^ha that’s funny, listen to the intro on “Urban legend” lyrical bomb, or listen to “look what I got” they just 2 of my personal favorite T.I tracks, but

    T.I freestyle over the “Go Crazy” Jeezy track > Dro catalog

    Grafh>>>>>>>>>>T.I. and Dro

    ^ “I concur. Do you concur, doctor?” (c) I’m Leonardo, catch me if you can

  64. nation v3.1 build Says:

    and then i pimp a hoe, take a bitch to Berlin
    my bitch break niggas after that we fuck they girlfriends
    my girl got a girlfriend, chevy blue like whirlwind

    ^ another classic… ReachNYC’s cop out of conversations

  65. D. Billz Says:

    Dro shoulda been featured on way more songs after his album dropped. I think T.I. was hatin’, somehow. I’m just gonna put that rumor out there since I can’t prove anything.

    Also, I don’t see Meek Millz gettin’ no type of love. The only time he was ever mentioned is when Clifford was in Philly and brought him out. Outside of SP, Illadelph MC’s be gettin’ shitted on.

  66. Joe 88 Says:

    Outside of SP, Illadelph MC’s be gettin’ shitted on.

    *T-Rex verse pops up in my head*

    He went hard when he said “why ya’ll philly niggas rap like this? Did anyone peep murda mook getting bitched by the philly niggas? classic

  67. E AKA THE REAL NORIEAGA Says:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VeCG401XJtE

    speaking of philly mc’s

  68. TheCo!!inB Says:

    i’m almost positive i’ve read in print clifford saying dro was better than him….but Joe i’ve bought TIP albums consistently since he isnsisted to beat him “you would need a track from god feat jesus and jay z”….he has his moments but I think dro would eat that niggas cake *pause*
    didn’t meek millz just go in state for a few?
    Philly niggas go in….i just think walkin around lookin like black gnomes works against them.

  69. HombreNegro Says:

    jay-z = g.o.a.t.

    nas = g.o.a.t.

    go figure…

  70. Sam Says:

    How can u possibly hate on Jay know?
    Wouldn’t you feel stupid at this point?
