    philly rappers need ny, like israel needs our military power
    ^
    I’m sayin, Philly rappers need to stay the fuck out of Philly.

  2. Captain Planet Says:

    Curren$y is planning on doing Pilot Talk 3, so apparently not.

    ^

    Dame doesn’t own the franchise does he ?

  3. Bricktop Says:

    Lol @ Philly rappers, but uhhm back to Nas being the greatest rapper and all…

  4. Captain Planet Says:

    Philly is where Rap CEOs go for raw rap talent to exploit

    Then they dumb them back there before they catch a case or something

    ^^

    No clue. But I just read an article the other day with him saying he can only do it with Dame and Ski involved.

  6. Black Says:

    If niggas is talking bout just getting pussy in 2012 then all you need is a lil confidence and G to ya. Now the fact that you’re a broke ass nigga with no prospects will limit your relationships cuz eventually she will see through ya and bounce.

    Niggas e losin all way round tho
    You can’t be ugly, fat, and broke, plus have no social skills or confidence
    What bitch wanna lay w u?!?

    At least come with a respectable combo and you can make up for being ugly or fat.

    U niggas think typin on a blog is social skills.

    Type nigga to actually say “lol” to a bitch

    ==========================
    roffle

    i been saying tho

    you cant be ugly + broke + unsociable + unstylish x boring

    you gotta at least erase 2 of the 5

    then work from there

    get the f off twitter and meet some actual hoes in actual bars and afterparties

    I need to see the article, cus they were just in court

    That would be a Philly type move for Curren$y

    Are you fucking kidding me. You look like uncle
    luke with a lisp.
    Guy spends 99k and half his bonus on
    champagne gets a kiss on the forehead.

    ^^

    PT3 article

  15. Highsaiah Thomas Says:

    A Chick…i wanna tickle the back of your navel..with my extended tongue

  16. Captain Planet Says:

    Curren$y said that he’s been in talks with frequent collaborator Ski Beatz and one-time label head Dame Dash for Pilot Talk III. Even though the past few months found Spitta and Dash at odds over money owed from the New Orleans emcee’s previous efforts with BluRoc, he says that he’d want all original parties involved in the new installment.

    “[Pilot Talk III] can happen, that can happen,” he explained. “I talked to Ski [Beatz], me and Dame [Dash] talked, I’m talking [with them] because I wouldn’t be able to do that without all parties involved in the first two…I wouldn’t be able to do that shit, so everything would have to be ironed out on the up and up, and then we could do that shit.”

    ^

    Wow, he needs them to do it

    I wouldn’t do it tho, he got How Fly 2 coming he don’t need it

    He’ll just get more upset when shit fucks up again

  17. Black Says:

    motherfuckers who tweet in the club should be shot at

    ^^^^^^^^

    Its bad now. Real bad. Niggas/bitches taking a million flicks with their friends for instant/db.

    The whole point of going out for me is to get some new broads not shoot a documentary.

  18. Highsaiah Thomas Says:

    A Chick let me lay you down and put this female condom inside you..with my mouth

  19. Highsaiah Thomas Says:

    A chick i wanna make your eyes roll to the back of your head..by giving my head upside down

  20. Captain Planet Says:

    Social Networking <

    I'm over it

    We haven't gained anything really

    Now we taking pictures of our food and shit

    That's what happens when nerds take over the revolutions instead of musicians and artists

  21. F YOU PAY ME! Says:

    No philly rappers DONT last

    and im from philly..ill agree with that 100% why?

    99% of philly rappers only do gangster rap..that shit aint what it is nowadays

    July 20th, 2012 at 2:37 pm

    you talkin all swag no substance

    state prop pound for pound >> dipset

    like it said its not close

    ^

    Swag makes hits, I’m sorry

    DipSet was running rap at one point

    Even when Lil Wayne was getting ” Greatest Rapper Alive ” talk he wanted to be down with the Dips

    ^

    Wayne got his refined flow from a philly nigga GDK

  22. MiddleClassJoe Says:

    A-chick line up and suck my cock.

  23. Captain Planet Says:

    Wayne got his refined flow from a philly nigga GDK

    ^

    He got his flow from a Philly Nigga but wanted to be a New York Nigga

    If Gillie did write or define Carter 1 and whatever else he said where’s he at now ?

  24. F YOU PAY ME! Says:

    Like Jadakiss said..philly got the most spitters per capita

    but yeah..most philly rappers buzz eventually burn out and them niggas aint smart to invest the bread and make moves when they up

    lets see what happens to meek..

    freeway sellin out shows to white kids in Nebraska tho

    so he still doin something right..

  25. Highsaiah Thomas Says:

    a chick im not worried bout your lack of looks baby..niggaz saying you look like r.kelly rowland but im not pressed..just be great sexually and we can take over the world.

  26. Harlem World Says:

    @ black

  27. Captain Planet Says:

    ^

    Lol

    If you say so

  28. MiddleClassJoe Says:

    Lol No really though, a-chick tell us how you couldn’t find a single guy you like in fucking NEW YORK?

    You couldn’t find a banker, sportsmen, male model?

    Women are just never satisfied.Standards too high.
    Are you unattractive or do you really think some chicken feed chewing bastard from the countryside would be a better fit?

  29. Harlem World Says:

    ==================
    fock (c) cOLD

    that was quotable status

    *immediately copies and pastes it to facebook status bar*

  30. Highsaiah Thomas Says:

    yo hw ..can me and a chick use your bubblebath one day when you downtown being a token nigger? i got clorox wipes and both me and her had the chickenpox already.

  31. F YOU PAY ME! Says:

    Spitta needs to save PTIII

    keep that up the sleeve

    every rapper needs a classic they can drop a sequel or finale to up their sleeve just incase their buzz dies somewhere along their career

  32. Captain Planet Says:

    Yo Freeway, you selling out shows to white frat boys in Nebraska … you made it …

  33. Harlem World Says:

    niccas scared to even get faded, in case they mess their tweets up

    fuck i look like taking pictures of a bottle of nuvo or some other effeminate overpriced drink

    when im tryna get in the matrix for real

  34. Black Says:

    d..philly got the most spitters per capita

    ^^^^^^^

    Gift & The Curse. Niggas were focused on having the hottest bars but neglect song making and business. Meek spit a million bars but it wasn’t till he linked with Charlie Mack and started handling his business and making songs that could get on Power 99 that he locked the city down.

  35. Highsaiah Thomas Says:

    a chick…i wanna shoot up your club

  36. Black Says:

    Its upsetting tho. Chicks would always flick it up prior to going out but now niggas is on the same shit smh. When I’m on vacation shit is cool cuz I wont be in Miami or Vegas everyday but if we’re in the city we live we don’t need a timeline of a random Saturday in the club.
