Damon Dash x Curren$y x Roc-A-Fella x Def Jam

So last week, when we posted the trailer to Curren$y’s new video, somebody over at Def Jam asked me to include a buy link for the single on iTunes. Although it was slightly more subtle than the defj.am link they had up on their site, I had to ask what was up. Apparently Dame/DD172 was trying to sign Curren$y to a P&D deal (pressing and distribution) with Def Jam through the Roc-A-Fella imprint… which belongs to Def Jam.

“The name is mine, I’ll take the blame for that”

“Def Jam or Universal bought the brand. I think the ‘beef’ [with us and Jay-Z] was that Jay made it clear he didn’t want me or Biggs to be a part of it. That’s really where it was at. Now that he doesn’t work for Def Jam anymore, he doesn’t have the right to use the name. So there’s no reason for us not to use it. It’s there, and it’s a brand that’s not being used. So I was like, ‘I’ll take it.’ It always meant something to me.”

    How funny would it be for Dame to put out a project with Def jam under the Rocafella imprint after Jay played himself. Hope this happens.

  21. D. Billz Says:

    They lyin’. Fats do threaten the heart. You still need a small percentage of it in your body, nonetheless. But healthy fats that you can get from fish oils and other foods. Not the shit that refried, dehydrated, etc. Carbs should be balanced like any other food, but refined carbs should be avoided altogether.

    people need to realize
    just cuz one documentary or study says someting, you gotta dig deep into that context. if we took all things at face level. people would believe eatin just chocolate is good for you, its only good for a reason ro two, same was certain things are bad for you, but perhaps EXERCISE minimizes/eliminates that risk..

    walking while blowing tree=counterproductive but fun/relaxing.

    ^yeah man. coca cola distribution network is the greatest achievement by babylon ever. rap niggas have wet dreams that they had coca cola distribution

  31. D. Billz Says:

    Soda is death. It’s no other way I can explain that. Hennessy is probably healthier without the Coke. Real rap.

    its simple when it comes to food: the less processing the better it is for you.
    water and raw natural food = the best.

    ^That pretty much sums up. People, then, must do the homework on what is processed and what isn’t. For me it started with Sebi, then I started adding or deleting things based on my own DNA. Everybody can’t eat the same things but you can pick the BEST diet that works with your genetics and just eliminate some things altogether.

  57. D. Billz Says:

    I’m appalled to find out that many African-American women don’t want to exercise because of hair issues. Reason #91759 why I don’t like weaves.

    On another note, it’s crazy how many people avoid exercise. Even myself, who had put it on the backburner for quite some time realized how outta shape I was earlier this year. That shit is gonna put you on your death bed faster. I don’t acknowledge that Euro-centric “you’re gonna die anyway” attitude because we were given the powers to master our own bodies. Gettin’ hit by a falling brick out of a building as you leave is outta your control. But exercise and proper nutrition is a responsibility. I hate to see how some of these people are gonna survive when they tighten up on the food supply.
