    Who is this Gotti character?

    *sharpens shank made out of Jedi Mind Tricks CD*

  9. Beezy Says:

    Gotti = Boosie

  10. Fresh Huxtable Says:

    SMH@ dudes who call themselves Gotti but aren’t Italian or in the Mafia or named Gotti.

    Especially dudes who are black.

    For that matter, SMH @ everybody who named themselves after a drug dealer or gangster
    who is 100x tougher than they’ll ever be. Props to rappers who make up their own monikers and or use their real names.

  12. Dewill Says:

    Why is this caucasian old lady givin me the thumbs up at the top of the screen…? What does she have to do with TaxAct?

  13. hl Says:

    Seriously, what’s the point of bol writing about hiphop?

  14. AmpGeez a.k.a. Smoke Greene Says:

    Fash needs to get with some better producers. Neither Exile nor Alchemist really fit his style.

    Fash x 6th Sense perhaps?

    there’s a good possibilty you are correct…

  22. Fresh Huxtable Says:

    If you’re not Italian and not a mobster and you named yourself any derivative of Gotti, you lost on some level.

  27. landlord Says:

    Fash needs to get with some better producers. Neither Exile

    ————

    no way… Fashawn & Exile sound dope together…

    even Spongebob & Patrick Star would sound ill over Exile beats…

    Exile = GOAT white boy in hiphop history … he can rhyme dope too…

    Combat Jack
    Combat Jack is generally known amongst military personal as masturbating during wartime. It was the name of an episode of Generation Kill, in which we see various soldiers in the platoon “relieving” themselves in humvees or while sleeping.

    Other slang terms- Rub one out, jack off
    From Generation Kill–
    Soldier- Where did you go?
    Reporter Evan Wright- I dont know..i was trying to find a secluded place..
    Soldier- Combat Jack??
    Reporter Evan Wright- No…i was trying to take a shit and ended up by the front gate, then everyone started shooting.

    this sounds hella Boosie … always on that attempted online reverse psychology bullshit …

  33. hl Says:

    Fash does sound better over darker beats IMO. I think he works well over ALC and Madlib. Exile is cool too though.

    Funny tho

  35. London Underground Says:

    From Fab’s perspective, young hip-hop heads tend to be unaware of Nas’ early 1990’s contributions. “Nas, Nas, like Nas is so ill,” Fab told interviewer Karen Civil . “I think this younger generation of hip-hop really don’t know, like, I got a dude who rolls with me, he’s like 21, 22, he don’t know any of the ill Nas, he don’t know Illmatic, you just don’t know that Nas that I grew up with. I wish Nas would just let these young boys know he’s that dude.”

  36. landlord Says:

    or maybe its Amp playing Boosie games …

    since he wanna slap niggas and defend attacks on Gotti and whatnot …

    NEway

    tribute is one thing, but Rick Ross is the name taken by a CO? It’s not tribute, it’s biting for credibility.

  40. landlord Says:

    how are Alchemists’ beats any darker than Exile’s beats?…

    they both white …

    Pablo Escobar (Nas)
    Frank White (BIG)
    John Gotti (Irv and this overly excited commentor above)
    Scarface (scarface)
    Capone (Al Capone)

    that’s easy… between the best album ever and Rick Ross there’s six hamburgers of separation.

  56. hl Says:

    Really though Nas still is and always has been better than Fab. Fuck he talking about?

  57. Fresh Huxtable Says:

    Amp, your writing is pretty decent on your blog,
    in all seriousness. But what’s up with the sporadic updates?

    Also, what up with that “D-List: Guys, Music, Blogs” ad at the bottom of the page with the dude with his shirt off staring at his fingernails?
