Video: Curtis Is Listening

A lot of different artists out there that they’d be surprised that I got their CD, you know what I mean? And I play it… because of the competitive nature of the art form, I don’t shout it out or I don’t even let em know I’m listening, you know I just let it.. stay there because it might cause them to say something that makes me have to compete with them. – Curtis

    ^^^^how did i miss this one this morning? hehehe…

    anyone thinking michael jackson invented any of those dance moves (i.e. pop locking, robot, moonwalk) need to know the ledge. cats was moonwalking, doing the robot, and pop locking in NY WAAAAAAAAAAAAAY before he did it and shook the world at the motown 25th anniversery show (i THINK it was in 83-84. i know i was still in elementary school in jersey. blew my fucking mind. someone google that shit!)…

    “…because of the competitive nature of the art form.”

    ^ This fucking guy… he’s like a broken record. At least he didn’t say “aggressive” and “content” this time around. Maybe next time.

    what a fukin dickhead who is this fool.

  18. D Says:

    50 is a salllllltty muthafucka…

    Dude is just ACHING on the inside. Never to get CLOSE to GRODT…

    Go ahead, keep playing artists off…thats why they’re popping and youre not….

    “i dont want artists to know I listen to them…”

    GTFO with that …. dude is turning into a crouton…

    Who cares how much money you have? Thats what entertainers do…make money off of their craft…we expect them to get paid…

    …but you? You don’t entertain… you start to suck…and hate on other people who are more popular than you.

    You fail at the basic form of your existence.

    To entertain.

    Hood. Pop. Emo. Grunge. Rock. Jazz. Punk. Metal. ETC…

    You. Suck. At. That.

    Don’t let a decade roll around on that ass and you’ve only put out one good album…

    Then that money won’t mean anything.

    I wish entertainers would remember this crucial fact.

    We gave you this power. We can take it away as well.

  19. JDre Says:

    damn so much hate in the air.. what he is saying is true.. the man makes candyshop (which was a hit by the way) and hes soft wayne makes prom queen and hes “creative and great”.. all hes basically saying is that some artist take other genres and try to mesh it with hip hop and fans look the other way, but scorn him for trying other things…

    make sure you check out meth adn red on your iphone applications for kyte, keep up witht he blunt brothers adventures all day liong….BO2 in stores everywhere

  21. JerzindaBuilding Says:

    Lmao Curtis is mad insecure. Just give credit where you feel its due and deal with it like a man pus*y.

  22. whooooooooohannnnnnnnnnnn Says:

    lol Fif I feel ya,, word… These guys don’t get it ? gassed of no originality ! When we look back the Goat will be Fif and Kanye ?

    I say this because Kanye is a goat for

    1. Underdawg that conquered
    2. Work Ethic
    3. Influenced Drake,Kid Cudi who else ? Lupe ?
    4. Help Common be relevant
    5. Gave a lane for Charles Hamilton

    NOW FIF IS THE GOAT BECAUSE
    1. Certified Hood and rose to the TOP
    2. MADE GWOP
    3. MADE MADE GWOP
    4. MANY MEN HIPHOP CLASSIC
    5. GET RICH DIE TRYING THE LAST CLASSIC ALBUM IN THIS ERA ?

    SO YEAH 10 YEARS FROM NOW THE CONVERSATION WILL BE

    BIGGIE VS PAC
    KANYE VS 50

    Dominated this era !

    JIGGA in a League of his own ! Russell Simmons that spits

    DOA !

  23. tha strings Says:

    war angel was straight garbage, but this is a good interview.

    he makes an interesting point about being creative within your genre v.s. creativity resulting in blending genres.

    i have a good feeling about bisd.

  24. whooooooooohannnnnnnnnnnn Says:

    @ tha strings…

    I agree.. I feel the problems dopeboyz aka niccas who grind once they are certified in the deal there content tends to dwindle due to the fact, it’s hard to maintain a hood pass.. The one’s that do, are from the golden era so we grew up with them

    Snoop
    Jay-z

    I feel Rick Ross may struggle cause we have seen that before alot of his video’s are bland ! Nothing new just a new yacht, new house, new chick ?

    Bros the need diverse there content.. Jigga is in that lane of ultimate baller with Puffy etc… There is colation already..

    Billiondollarboyz club

    Jigga made a chess move just fucking with Lebron period.. No People have to entertain the possibility of Lebron in Brooklyn 2010..

    The point is 50 does that he deals with alot of athletes.. Vitamin water was the come up of that last 5 years,, He surpassed alot of peoples career and gwop just in a short run…and his coalition have it on smash as well

    DRE, EM

    So yeah Drake ? or Blueprint what’s more anticipated ?

  25. Stryfe Says:

    5. GET RICH DIE TRYING THE LAST CLASSIC ALBUM IN THIS ERA ?

    ^ Are you kidding me?

    The Black Album
    Kingdome Come
    Supreme Clientele
    Fishscale
    Legend of the Liquid Sword
    Grandmasters

    Just to name a few. I would prefer any of the above albums over Curtis’ super thug portrayal on GRODT.

  26. whooooooooohannnnnnnnnnnn Says:

    ^Jay-Z – D.O.A. (Death of Auto-Tune) (Trailer)

    @ Stryfe… I AGREE 99% with you

    75% of the albums you made are from the pioneers ala the Vets.. !

    Fif, is new cat.. that set the benchmark for Ross… That’s all i am saying and he has marketed himself well… So he is a threat ! Must respect he has worldwide coming to thisis50

    So that’s why i give him the credit cause it due !

    No Hate

    @ Stryfe – Kingdom Come was wack as hell

    ^ It’s the worst Jay Z album. I’d give it a 3.5/5 and yet I still prefer it over GRODT.

  29. Stryfe Says:

    And yes, I do hate Curtis. Just because he got lucky with Vitamin Water he thinks he’s a fucking genius and everyone should pay attention to him. NEWSFLASH; it was luck. Otherwise everyone else would’ve invested in VW as well. Nobody saw it coming.

    I’m making it okay to hate again. Chuuuch!

    And Curtis, if you’re reading this, I hope you release your album at the same time as Jigga’s so you can take another hit you Rocafella punching bag!
