    Word… Never heard a nigga tell Game he only here because of 50.

    Camel really has a hold on niggas state of mind.

  5. Scionnole Says:

    Good to see Just/Bassline getting shine – ’nuff bangers where made inbetween those walls. Missed him on BP3 but been more than satisfied w. his work w. Jay Electronica.

    laf. no. Kanye West >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Just Blaze this decade.

  11. miltee Says:

    Dr. Dre > Just Blaze this decade too…

    With GRODT and The Documentary…

    Just Blaze loses on the strength that he didn’t market/put out Greatest Story Never Told. When Saigon was hot, he should’ve pushed hard to get him out the door …

    With GRODT and The Documentary…

    JUST BLAZE BRINGS THAT FIRE EVERYTIME
    few last months/years, dr dre wasnt really hot
    DR DRE ONLY < JUST BLAZE ONLY
    dr dre has a great staff behind and with him
    hes a great producer no question
    but storch, porter etc etc etc

  13. APES IN SPACE Says:

    ive managed to steer clear thus far of the pits in this forest ive been galavanting in for weeks now but it seems there is an evil spirit who has cleverly camouflaged a pit in the form of music & now this pit im stuck in has a hold on my mind & soul & is mentally breaking me down

  14. Dingus Says:

    If sales are a concern for Just releasing Saigon’s Greatest Story Never Told I’d buy 6 copies. Every song I’ve heard off of it has been ridiculous.

    ^ Cosign. When Saigon starts spitting his deep meaningful raps, it reminds me of 2pac. And nobody has reminded me of 2pac .. since pac.. maybe at times with budden (on like the mood muzik’s).

    Saigon was one of my favourites this decade. When I hear shit like “It’s alright” I’m blown back …

  30. 40 Inc Says:

    Just Blaze is cool but he cant do what Dr.Dre does.

    Dr.Dre is a Music Producer

    Just blaze is a hip hop beatmaker.

    Just blaze sits at his MPC all day and makes 20 hip hop sampled beats.

    Dr.Dre is a composer hes in the same breath as quincy jones. hes has musicians play for him and composing every melody thats Original and not from another record.

    20 Just blaze beats= 1 Dr.Dre Song

    incorrect.

    ^ ^ you’re not very familiar with just’s production techniques, are you? just has overseen string sections for songs he’s produced for game, just plays live drums, just has his own session musicians, etc. if you think everything just does is sample-based, you are woefully mistaken.

    and for whoever gave dre credit for what he did on the documentary, some of my favorite beats on that record weren’t even produced by dre, come on now…

    You do know the diff between producer and exec producer right?

I was tryna catch up with my cousin this weekend, but this nigga hit clubs at 9pm, lol. He don’t do the drugs I do, so he don’t understand the pros hitting the club anytime after 12pm. The cover charge might be $50, but fuck it, lol, we do it live.

    FTR: I’m not paying $50 to get into anywhere in baltimore, i’ll let them other niggas kick that out, lol
