Immortal Technique: The South Ain’t Cakin Like That

itech.jpg 

This isn’t any kind of shock post or an attempt to belittle the South, so if your a southerner think twice before you come in here talking about anybody’s hating. I just read part two of the Immortal Technique interview at XXL, and as usual he had plenty of interesting things to say. The following is his take on the notion that the South is making truckloads of money because they start there own labels and go the independent route rather than signing to a Def Jam or an Interscope:

But the realest thing I’m gonna tell you about hip-hop’s Southern power surge: niggas ain’t making money like that. I don’t care what you wore in your video, what you showed up to the Howard homecoming in, what you floss in the streets, or how many independent units niggas sold out they trunk in Alabama or Atlanta. Let’s not sit here and pretend that the big companies aren’t the ones making all the real money. The Southern push doesn’t reflect the growing living standard of Southern people as much as it represents a desperate effort from record labels to salvage their sales, which are in the toilet. They found a loyal market and they will now exploit it to the fullest. Your imprint means nothing, nigga. You own no masters, you split publishing. The dollar amount that the majors get from the distributor is the bottom line. You don’t even see that as an artist. We’re all still slaves, we’re just on different boats.

Take it how you want to take it, but that’s real talk. And if you think about it if they aren’t doing that well with independents, how are the rest of the artists doing with majors? Like I said above, if you’re not familiar with Tech and his outlook on the industry and world at large, make sure you get familiar before you come in here talking shit. At the very least read the rest of the interview.

  22. reggaetonslasher Says:

    immortal speaks truth, but wont ever be heard on a global scale, the powers that be wont allow it, Its the classic fight between good and evil, and evil (bull shit music) has been winning for some time now.

  23. THE MAN DID IT Says:

    WTF? THIS POST INSIUATES THAT THE SOUTH IS THE ONLY COUNTY FLOSSIN, AND MAKIN IT SEEM LIKE THEY GETTING MONEY. LIES HAVE BEEN HAPPENING EVERYWHERE. EVERONE PRETENDS LIKE THEY SOMEONE IN THE VIDEOS. IE NAS, IE AZ, IE NWA BACK IN THE DAY. THE SOUF WAS JUST LAST TO JUMP ON THE BAND WAGON.

    @sweet bootie louie

    did you get ya name just from 50? or the whole g-unit? you ass bangin bastards!!! (hahahah) today is gone be a good one!! in fly mode early

  29. Trouble Maker Says:

    @blood hound

    say dawg… “hurt south guy”? well i guess you did succeed in getting the ball rolling… what your boy is saying does make sense, but once again being that he may not see whats going on down here i don’t think he realizes just how many units these guys are moving down here independently. Mansions…bentlys….millions….all before the majors caught on to what was going on down here. I mean he “it” moved some decent units on vol.1 and vol.2 but i’m tell you it like vol.32 down here. You may not be able to see the money from way overthere on the east coast but trust me it’s here(that was directed at the east siders) as for slum lord….either you are not in the music scene around here or (and i hope this is not the case) you are eskay’s “good little southern lap dog”. Either way shame on you for not knowing whats going on around you!

  30. abstract Says:

    the rap game is cyclical like college sports teams. every team has their down years, but after a few of ‘em, they back on top. same with the rap industry. the west was holding it down for years until the east came and snatched it back…now it’s the south’s turn to shine. NY will retake the crown…just a matter of time.

    >>>only as far as rappers go. We savin the best for last.

  32. eskay Says:

    Trouble Maker

    How do you know what’s really going on? do you see those niggas bank and mortgage statements? you think cuz you see a dude rolling in a Bentley he’s paid like that? I hope your smarter than that.

  33. MaddenMaster Says:

    I dont care what any of yall say dude is just ok to me… NOTHING SPECIAL AT ALL!!!!

  34. Blood Hound aka Slum Lord Says:

    Trouble Maker

    What the fuck are you talking about lil homie?

    When it comes to this south shit I stand alone to defend my people and culture… I know niggas got mad lot before rap, Jeezy, Baby, Master P, Slim Thug… Only to name a few, I know how they got the money too independent sales and dope… That’s real talk, now I don’t know how you read my post… But um if you re read it, you’ll see I’m defending the south.

    But then again maybe I misread your post, maybe you aren’t defend the promised land, maybe you’re a yank! In any case… Get off of my dick.. Its your moms turn.

  35. eskay Says:

    smarten up Madden

    >>just heard the song Dance with the Devil for the first time, REAL FUKING HIP HIP…

    ^ yeah for real. that and 3 Sides to a Story from Buddens are some powerful music. those songs make you uncomfortable while your listening to them. how much rap can you say that about?

  36. Blood Hound aka Slum Lord Says:

    I hope you don’t think 50 owns everything he is seen in on a video… Its called a budget and he is a renter… People need to do things like that to seem like they made it.

    That’s just like if a label signs an artist a loans them 500,000.00 dollars… Its what some niggas call a signing bonus but the truth is its a loan… And they are entitled to pay that money back it doesn’t matter if they go platinum or wood… The 1st 500,000 goes back to the label then the label takes their cut…

  37. eskay Says:

    ^ word up and that goes for ALL artists, independent or major.

  38. TYRONEBIGGUMS Says:

    ^^^ yes sir im with you on that shit very few songs can you actually listen to and then after they are over you just kind of stand there shocked and amazed by what you just heard shits are fucking classic thats what real hip-hop was bout creativity not mass prodcuced garbage weather its from the north west south or east if its fucking garbage its garbage and unfortunitly too much so called “rap or hip-hop” is just that these days

  39. TYRONEBIGGUMS Says:

    obviously i was refering to eskays post about dance with the devil and 3 sides to a story

    real talk right here. how many of you g-unit stans know that all those spinner g-unit chains they have are all fucking cubix cercinum ( or hoever the fuck you spell you know what it is ) he has had interviews where he says they use the fake shit in his videos cause you CAN”T tell the difference and thats what makes people buy his shit ( which is really depressing the way to get rich is to act really rich and people will want to give you money, how many new dudes come in talking about their ice and how hard they are caking its all an image that is to be protrayed and for suckers to fall into the trap, 50 is setting you guys up with this shit most rappers act richer than they are, but people still think cause someone is in an ill car in the video that means its their’s but those shit are just rented for the day or the hour, what do you think got busta’a bodyguard shot the fact that he was protecting jewelery to be used to floss in a video and then be returned safe and sound to its original owners, now if thats not a good reason to die i dont know what is but i digress, in general people these people aint caking like you think, but what really has me confused is that the same people will say jadakiss is broke as hell he got no money but then turn around and say cam is crazy paid, everyone stop worrying and or caring about other people money just worry about your own )

  41. E From BK Says:

    I’m glad somebody who is actually in the industry gave some insight.

  42. Blood Hound aka Slum Lord Says:

    ^^^ great point TY

    *counts money*

    Stans like Luis and Ur_Mad need to get a fucking life, and stop basing it on the lives of their favorite rapers (I meant to spell it like that… Sue me!) that shit is sad… And I think they need prayer more than anything.

  43. Blood Hound aka Slum Lord Says:

    @ E from Bk

    Yeah but he didn’t hafta individualize the topic, the same can be said for all coasts… Even for other forms of music.

  44. Doc Flav Says:

    And How Much Money This “nigga” Got In His Pocket? I Aint Reading Shit First. J Prince Dont Even Rap, Long Bread. I Dont Know, Seems I Learned Long Ago ” Its Not What You Know, Its What You Can Prove” Now I Will Go Read It And See What This Guy Is Standing On.

  45. Blood Hound aka Slum Lord Says:

    What up DOC?

    I.T. Is just trippin, he’s ‘plexing on the south like everyone else is.

  46. TYRONEBIGGUMS Says:

    ^^^ he didnt have to your right but do people from the south ( and please dont think i mean you cause you now we agree on most shit ) have to say NY RAP SUCKS THAT SHIT IS DEAD AND CORNY ITS THE SOUTH’S TURN NOW. see again i know you dont talk like that but mad people on here do and just like when the west was poppin everyone wanted to claim which coast was better and that shit is foolish. trash comes from everywhere great music comes from everywhere and everyone need to stop hating on regions and coast your fighting about your geographical location man what degree of latitude and longitude your at on the map does that make you any better than some one more north or more south than you? of course not. its not where your from its where your HEAD at. lots of ny cats are starting to really take this south is running it personal and i just dont see how southern cats can be pissed at ny cats for respinding to these statements. people all over down south you dont have to tell us about how hot your music is how do you think its selling so well because its being played everywhere and people know it all good and bad just stop acting like everything is better just cause its south you people gotta make this into a war why not just say damn that shit was dope or that shit was trash.

    again i wasnt coming at you bloodhound just expanding on what you said and giving it a ny/nj point of view

  47. Blood Hound aka Slum Lord Says:

    Aww man Ty you know how I stand. But yeah they have the south fans that start dissing NY rap just to try to make the south look better.

    I co-sign 100% with what you said homie. Trash comes from evey part of the globe.

    I defend the south when it is targeted as a whole… I’d never defend an artist I don’t get any money from those bastards…

    What IT did was target the south when in fact everyone in the industry is guilty of the samething

  48. eskay Says:

    That nigga didn’t say one derogatory thing about the South, thats yall knee jerk defensive niggas taking shit personal as usual. If you read the whole interview or the quote above closely you’ll notice he said: “We’re all still slaves, we’re just on different boats.” he’s talking about artitsts in general not just the South. I excerpted that paragraph cuz ya’ll stay on that “we cakin off our independent lables” shit. So whatever take it how you want to take it.

  49. MaddenMaster Says:

    I dont like dude…. Bottom line thats that!!! I don’t need to smarten up I just like dude!!! Yea he ok but all that riggidy rah rah rah shit dont do it for me not from nobody!!!

    “Just cuzz you can’t understand dude don’t mean he nice”
    ~Unknown

  50. Blood Hound aka Slum Lord Says:

    Yeah I know Eskay.

    I just don’t like the fact he used the south as an example.

    Like I said “everyone is guilty” not just the south.

  51. Blood Hound aka Slum Lord Says:

    Madden I think that was Hova on supa ugly

  52. eskay Says:

    riggidy rah rah rah shit? what the fuck are you talking about Madden:

    The voice of racism preaching the gospel is devilish
    A fake church called the prophet Muhammad a terrorist
    Forgetting God is not a religion, but a spiritual bond
    And Jesus is the most quoted prophet in the Qu’ran
    They bombed innocent people, tryin’ to murder Saddam
    When you gave him those chemical weapons to go to war with Iran
    This is the information that they hold back from Peter Jennings
    Cause Condoleeza Rice is just a new age Sally Hemmings
    I break it down with critical language and spiritual anguish
    The Judas I hang with, the guilt of betraying Christ
    You murdered and stole his religion, and painting him white
    Translated in psychologically tainted philosophy
    Conservative political right wing, ideology
    Glued together sloppily, the blasphemy of a nation
    Got my back to the wall, cause I’m facin’ assassination
    Guantanamo Bay, federal incarceration
    How could this be, the land of the free, home of the brave?
    Indigenous holocaust, and the home of the slaves
    Corporate America, dancin’ offbeat to the rhythm
    You really think this country, never sponsored terrorism?
    Human rights violations, we continue the saga
    El Savador and the contras in Nicaragua
    And on top of that, you still wanna take me to prison
    Just cause I won’t trade humanity for patriotism

  53. eskay Says:

    ^ just cuz you don’t understand him doesn’t mean he’s NOT nice.

  54. Blood Hound aka Slum Lord Says:

    @ Eskay

    That was a hot verse that was real talk.

  55. Doc Flav Says:

    ^ typical. “We got more paper!”

    kill yourself.

  57. TYRONEBIGGUMS Says:

    again your 100% right but all we have been hearing about the last couple years up north is about how the south is killing it ( how NY rap sucks its dead, and when people come at you in a generalization you tend to get blasted back on in generlization. really whats pissing the north off the most is the way some southern cats be acting mad disrespectful to them ( now i know nelly is midwest but how he came in a direspected krs-one is ridiculous who the fuck is he do diss krs-one, now again i know mid-west but the people from the south ave been talking mad reckless about how they are taking over and people up here take that shit to heart ( we live and breath our hip-hop ) especially the artist in it and especially the older ones who are like bicth dont come in this shit disrespecting my and my peoples which is honestly how the north has been feeling for a minute now and some of these cats have finally had enough and have decided to speak their mind on it, should they know better and not generalize back ( hell yea they should ) but like i said its emotions and when you get blasted with a general statement your gonna get one back honestly im surprised the hostility has taken this long to come to this point.

    everyone needs to get over it inculding I.T. just let shit play and see who likes what ( i understand how souther cats feel disrespected when they hear shit like this but just know that we have been listening to cats from the south say shit like this for awhile now it was only a matter of time before it exploded, and i mean how can we not be pissed now bloodhound you saw that dude krypotnite on here talking about hip-hop was started in the south and how he is writing a book about it, im sure he is full of shit but god damn if thats not what sets us off to blast back.

    ” dear mama cover your ears im fittin to get vulger/
    new york niggas started this and we aint where we supposed to/
    how the fuck niggas is bloods and we a-town stompin/gotta walk through new york and feel like im in compton ( HELL NAW )/ I need new york to be new york again/ o fuck its real talk again/ brooklyn im nausous when i walk through the jux’s/ you was gonna bang you should of brought back the d-sets/ this is new york, you know this represents?/ shit we the fucking home of MALCOM X / and im not trying to drop knowledge homie/ my gun aint at the crib i got it on me/ MY CALI NIGGAS GOTTA RESPECT THAT/ THIS IS HOME BASE GOTTA PROTECT THAT/ IF I DONT THEN WHO WILL/ IF THE NINE DONT KILL EM THEN THE TRUTH WILL ”

    ” i aint trying to say im not proud of the out of town movement/ im just saying new york aint gotta stop what we doing/ we aint gotta follow fans leave the dick riding for fags/ you wont cop KISS but you’ll cop CHINGY/ i ride or die for my home till im dead and stinkin/ remember watching colors seeing flags and chuck taylors/ now im in new york like who the fuck is these niggas/ ill die in my air ones i had them before nelly/ ( me too )
    – TRU-LIFE

    now southerns take it how you want but like the boy says THIS IS HOME BASE YOU GOTTA PROTECT THAT. and all we have been hearing from the south is fuck ny and ny rap sucks its our turn and how do you expect us to react ???

  58. Blood Hound aka Slum Lord Says:

    Really that’s like that gay ass Beef III shit T.I. was on saying lil flip doesn’t have that much money, he rents cars, he eats lucky charms. Now I.T. Is doing the samething but for what?

    Damnit I’m noticing a connection T.I. And I.T. Damnit that explains everything…

    NOT!!! I don’t know what to say… These cats trip me out at times.

    he says unknown like you dont know exactly where thats from, if you dont know that then it would make sense you would be one of the ones talking about jay’s a biter cause you didnt recognize the classic lines he borrowed. but we all know you know who said the line and who it was about but if you dont maybe this will help

    h-o-v-a i got my mojo back baby o behave

    Is it “Black Girl Lost” or shorty owe you for ice?/
    I’ve been real all my life, they confuse it with conceit/

  60. Blood Hound aka Slum Lord Says:

    New York shouldn’t stop what they are doing, shit New York is the shit, that never will change, but we all need to stop hating on each other in the rap world because the rest of the world hates us as is.

    All the Rap on Rap shit needs to stop!

  61. Blood Hound aka Slum Lord Says:

    Yeah that’s the Hov song… I don’t know why I said supa ugly!

  62. TYRONEBIGGUMS Says:

    i agree with you 100% bloodhound im just saying why ny cats feel they need to talk cause we have been hearing it and staying quiet to long, but you couldnt of possibly been more on point than you were with this statement and honestly this is where we should leave it and everyone should see

    “but we all need to stop hating on each other in the rap world because the rest of the world hates us as is.”

    good shit homie thats the truth

  63. TYRONEBIGGUMS Says:

    and fuck yea its that blueprint 2 joint that song is always forgotten by nas fans when they wanna discuss the battle its so comical but i dont want to get back into a jay vs. nas thing weve duked that out plenty and honestly i love them both ( no camron )

  64. Doc Flav Says:

    Okay THE TITLE SAYS “the South Aint Caking Like That.” Did I Miss Something? You Cant Have It Both Ways. I Hope You Warn Me Before You Ban Me So I Can Get A Farewell Post. Lol Nelly Responded To A Krs Dis To A Song Nelly Wrote Not Even Thinking About Krs. He Meant #1 In The Game At The Time Not Responding To A BDP Song Written 8 To 10 Years Prior.

  65. ant gwop Says:

    You can see that the south is starting to get under people’s skin. When the East was doing it, the same was the case; Still was the big companies making money, we knew that. Bottom line, Dem Franchize Boys will get more money per show than IT. As a matter of fact, most of the people outside of the net will think he’s a fighter from a video game, or a wrestling grappling meneuver.

  66. eskay Says:

    Homey, I wrote that title so if you got a problem, its with me. Don’t let your emotions get in the way of hearing the real talk that man is spitting. And don’t worry, I’ll let you know when I’mma ban you.

  67. Doc Flav Says:

    Ty Just Like Hova Fans Forget Last Real Nigga Alive By Nas.

  68. eskay Says:

    Ant gwop, you’re missing the point homey, but hey whatever, continue to worry about which rapper has more money.

  69. I HATE U SO MUCH RIGHT NOW! Says:

    I really hate u muthafuckaz for trying to water down and hate on anything that is not east coast hip-hop! first off, who gives a flying fuck but u broke up north niggaz who got money and who don’t !

    I know niggas is cakin down south, I don’t doubt it. I mean just cuz ya’ll can’t outsell 50 that don’t mean nothin :-)

    Most of you cats talking reckless about Immortal Technique probably never took the time out to listen to any of his albums or mixtapes. What if people took clips of your life and made an opinion about you with out getting to know you? Take the time out to listen to his albums and mixtapes and THEN pop shit about the homie. That is coming from a Honduran/Bajan banana boat person. Fuck you bitch!

    I read in XXL magazine that T.I., Slim Thug, and Big Boi invest in real estate, they take what money they make from selling records and flip properties. T.I.’s flipped like 40 properties with his uncle. Alot of independent rappers have side hustles that make them way more money then rapping does, as wack as some of there music can be, alot of them do music because they can.

    I’m the last person you would see siding with the south, but I doubt you can “rent” a grill, or have your name stiched in a rented ride. All the shit these rappers do from selling grills (even though they’re just fronts with a new name), to rims, plus in house production, to all of a sudden selling your beats to big names (i.e. Lil’ Jon and Three 6).

    I doubt acts like D4L are rich though, they probably only get new kicks when they do photoshoots.

    The rap game is like the stock market. Everything is based on peoples perception. Indeed southern cats are pushing units indie but are still getting pimped by majors.

    A lot of these groups are pushing like 20, 30 thousand and getting major deals of it. Why? because the publics perception is that the South is so hot that they got to be hot to. They have instant BET and Radio play and the record label will front load your favorite Tower, Sam Goody or whatever with their records.

    There are a gang of underground cats that so way better numbers than that and are still indie.

    Hieroglyphics out of Oakland sell well over 100,000 units every time they drop and own all of their publishing, merchandising, etc. They even own a million dollar facility on top of that!

    La the Dark Man from the Wu did 300,000 units indie off his last album, (and your like WHO?)

Also, it’s nice to spit knowledge every now and again, but if I wanted a sermon I would cop a Kirk Franklin joint. Me personally, I’m looking for creativity and originality, which are rare, North or South. What the fuck does this mut know about another nigga’s paper anyway, who the fuck is he?

    But understand, people still take offense to what other people say reguardless it there “right or wrong”.

    Especiall when refering to a whole region.

    Thats just like if T.I. said that a lot East Coast artists albums are most likely flop ‘WHICH IS NOT TRUE” people on the east would probably take offense to that IF it were true.

    Whats all this East vs South, aren’t there southern states on the east coast? humm

    Today I am having a plesant day so im not on this “DEFEND THE SOUTH” mentality today.

    Check out Rick Ross interview on SOHH.COM:

    With a strong buzz and a co-sign from Jay-Z, Ross is poised to add to the south’s current reign. In recent weeks, New York emcees like Ghostface and 50 Cent have criticized the South, citing that its artists dumb down their lyrics in favor of party-oriented songs. Ross disagrees.

    “I mean they gotta listen to the music,” Ross, who said he considers himself a lyricist, told SOHH. “I ain’t worried about other niggas cause I don’t even hear other niggas’ music like that. That’s their opinion, but whatever. You gotta hear the music. I know my shit [is] on another level. Listen to my music and then make that comment, you’ll sound stupid.” [Listen]

    If the shoe fits wear it baby. U know who Im talkin to…

    “I know Noreaga, the Real Noreaga he owe me a hundred favors”

    yeah Rick Ross is good. he’s trash.

    Jay signed him cuz he’s an executive now and he knows you have to cater to the South.

  149. Cosmic 5000 Says:

    eskay

    Don’t just generalize an artist by one song. That would be just like me saying Jay-z is trash after hearing Big Pimppin.

    I think Rick Ross is a good rapper and I will be the first to get his album.

  150. Cosmic 5000 Says:

    But I do agree with Rick though.

  151. Cosmic 5000 Says:

    Im just glad somebody from the south has spoken out. I get tired of going back and fourth back and fourth with people who don’t know a thing about down south rap.

    If I were a southern rap critic and judged east coast rap I would be wrong and eventually piss people like you off.

    I have a saying:

    “If it’s not yours, don’t judge it”

  152. eskay Says:

    there are plenty of good rappers down south, but Rick Ross ain’t one of them. I’ve heard two songs, but I highly doubt that the rest of his album is gonna be a 180 degree change from what he’s spitting on those songs, which means his album = garbage.

    READ THE WHOLE XXL article he didn’t say that niggas in the south was broke he just said whatever they making the white label owner is making 10 times as much. He was saying that its just what it has always been. He stood up for niggas talkin about how the south got more racism, more poverty and that’s why they sound hungrier on tracks…how they not stupid they felt katrina and know the government don’t give a fuck about them.

Yeah the south is independent. and they fanbase is loyal..Why do niggas gotta put they two cents in about why tha south is runnin(and has been runnin) the rap game? The formula is simple, It seems niggas up top is mad cause they aint take the same route that tha south took. All im sayin is Pick up a mic if u gon’ change tha world nigga. Otherwise, move around!

    Come on man. You can’t be serious. NOBODY was concerned with or analyzing how ANYBODY made money back in the day. Don’t try and make this some hating on the South shit. Let’s be real. Only when the general public started being concerned with shit like Soundscan and other INDUSTRY barometers THAT PEOPLE STARTED THESE CONVERSATIONS. Now EVERYBODY no matter what region you are from is concerned with that type of stuff. It’s you Southern cats that are causing this divide. Stop being so EMOTIONAL! Duke, don’t act like you and your boys wasn’t talking about what numbers Jay-Z was doing. AGAIN, IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH nORTH VS. sOUTH! iT’S JUST A DIFFERENT TIME WHERE THE CONSUMER NOW KNOWS A LITTLE MORE ABOUT THE INDUSTRY. Oh yeah, never mind the fact that the artists themselves talk about that shit on their records.

    Immortal Technique is one of the greatest rappers alive. If lyrically value got you cash, he’d be richer than Bill Gates. The only reason he isn’t big time, and you faggots hate on him is because he hasn’t got a huge distribution chain, doesn’t have a major label and he hasn’t got the access to tight beats (most of his tracks have good beats regardless I.E “the 4th branch”, “Peruvian Cocaine”, “The cause of death” and “The point of no return”).

    However imagine “Fuck You” with a Swizzie Beat or “Internal Bleeding” with a Dr Dre beat. If Immortal Technique did the unthinkable and sold out, he’d be more well known then 50 Cent.
