Shyne wants off of Def Jam

shyne

In an interesting turn of events, Shyne is apparently trying to leave the label that he signed to only 8 months ago and is already considering going to Cash Money Records:

“I’m definitely trying to get with Cash Money but the Def Jam thing is a question mark right now,” Shyne told SOHH. “I’ve been fixing to get up out of there for a while now because [Island Def Jam CEO] L.A. Reid don’t care about hip-hop. The people up there, they don’t know what they’re doing. When you don’t have a strong leader, where you gonna go? … They don’t care about hip-hop music. You give them a hip-hop record with an R&B singer, you “might” have a chance. They don’t care. You got The Roots, Ghostface, Nas, probably the best hip-hop roster you could imagine and they do nothing. L.A. Reid doesn’t want nothing to do with rappers — it’s nothing personal, I don’t have nothing personal with dude but he makes it known he doesn’t care about hip-hop. So I’m really interested in seeing who’s gonna replace him. Because I know he’s been replaced — so I wanna find out who’s gonna take his spot before I decide what I’m gonna do with Def Jam…The music that we make is responsible for pop, R&B, everything that’s jumping right now…”

This is starting to sound a lot like what Nas had to say last week.

He also told SOHH that he’s keeping all the music:

“They gotta care about [what we’ve done] the way Jimmy Iovine cares about that, the way Lyor Cohen cares about that,” Shyne added. “I’m definitely not gonna scrap everything I recorded. I put in so much, I’ve come so far. From the first record I did when I got out to the new records I’ve done while going to all these different countries, I ain’t scrapping nothing. I paid for that. I’m not signed to Def Jam anyway, I just need to find another distributor. I might just have Cash Money do everything. Who knows? That’s the beauty about being in the business for yourself. You can decide where you want to go and what you want to do.”

    Again, in Philly, talent means you sound like everybody else and rap about the same shit, murking niggas, flipping birds, etc.

    Mickey Factz is more talented then them Philly niggas.

    At least he’s riding his own wave.

    State Prop, Major Figgas & Cassidy are the GOAT Philly rappers.

    Every act that comes out of Philly is directly influenced by them.

    These niggas don’t even try to find their own lane or put a new spin on the old one.

    Last week, up-and-coming New York rapper Ronald “Ra Diggs” Herron was arrested on federal drug charges, fingering him as a violent drug kingpin that allegedly ran a crack and heroin ring out of his Gowanus Housing projects in Brooklyn. Frequent collaborator Waka Flocka Flame, who recorded several songs with the MC, told XXLMag.com that he was shocked by the accusations.

    “The eight’ll have em like…(C) Amp that shit is classic you own that quote sir!

    ^^

    It’s actually (c) Jersey,but who’s counting?

  104. lIL mANE yOUNG Says:

    Flocka—who included a song he recorded with Diggs and Uncle Murder (collectively known as the Murder Team) called “Live by the Gun” on his recently released album Flockaveli—said he thinks the BK rapper is innocent.

  105. lIL mANE yOUNG Says:

    Although feds painted Diggs as a criminal boss in their indictment, Waka says that’s news to him. “I don’t know, he ain’t never showed that to me,” he said. “I just went out there, hung out on some regular shit, he ain’t never exposed that to me. I don’t know.”

    If convicted Diggs can face life in prison.

    Rap partner Uncle Murder declined to comment. Stay tuned to XXLMag.com as the story develops.

    The New Age sound is Wiz/Wayne/Ye’/Drake. You have to have melodies n harmonies auto tune or not. Straight rap don’t cut it u have to sing a lil too. I just took a “relisten” to Kush n Oj in the proper perspective hence the title of tape and I realized how much Wiz sings either background or the hooks “wherever that pappppeeeerrrrr goeeeessss…” Same w Ye and clearly Drake. These days if you aint doin the “Hybrid” give up

    It’s really not about being corporate, it’s about being creative. No style last forever. This is why all the new mc’s that come out sounding like wu never blow. New York was able to hold ground when the kool moe dee, Fab 5, kurtis blow, Run Dmc era came to an end with a shift into the modern Mobb deep, redman, keith murray type Flow. Biggie and Jay-z had world class melodic type flows that put a gloss on street records. Nas was able to last long because he was musical as well as lyrical. New York had two Flow/style shifts. When Jay got hot, everyone started to either rhyme like him or rhyme like the wu. No one From New York progressed the sound or flow. When Wayne Came with his new flow, part philly part New Orleans, he took the whole rap world by storm and Now everyone is rhyming like Him. Max B was stifled by Jim jones and Jail. But New York has to come up with a new rhyme scheme to get back on top. Rapping like the Wu and canibus is not going to get you anywhere. Styles change unfortunately that era is gone.
