  4. D. Billz Says:

    billz im talking about his flow, have you heard the album

    ^ No. After Make It Rain, I was assuming that song pretty much set the tone for the what the rest of the album is gonna sound like. If you happen to have a copy of it then you can send it to my inbox. And is the flow accompanied by any decent lyrics?

    -So T.I. still has the first best week this year.

    -Mainstream hiphop needs more Premo!!! He’s in much higher demand from underground artists. Mainstream gotta reach out more. Him and Nas have definitely been in the studio recently. That’s a fact!! Hopefully that shit shows up some time soon!!

  17. eskay Says:

    … the premise of the show itself was racist … a show taped in Manhattan, but you would rarely, if ever see people of color ?!? … in NYC ?!? … GTFOH …

  36. T Nelson Says:

    all those shows sienfeld friends sex in the city (even though i luv it) etc……are racist how u base a show in NYC with barely any minorities on it

  37. Pimpin Ken Says:

    is it okay for a real nigga to wear vans?

  38. landLORD Says:

    … what’s a real nigga ? …

  39. D. Billz Says:

    Smh @ people sayin’ Game “flopped”. Of course he aint gonna do a mil in the week. Game is a shit talker and it’s obvious that everybody’s buyin’ it… 380,000 to be exact.

    I remember the story about that hip hop cop. It’s other cops out there cuttin’ deals with dealers on the low. But robbin’ ‘em is obviously a lot more blatant and will get you numbers in the box.

    Of course they would be unveiling that Dilla fitted on Black Friday. The designed coulda been a lil’ more elaborate but it’s still worth the cop.

    The way Premier described that Christina record almost makes me wanna d/l the singles to listen to ‘em. And I’m glad that he has dedicated his career to keepin’ hip hop in pure form… “the sun rises on the East”

    Snoop on Rap City: “CRRRRIIIIIIIIIIIIPIN!”. Might just pick up Snoop’s album along with Jay’s on Friday. Soundin’ like the old Snoop on that freestyle.

    I’m feelin’ that Questlove interview. People fail to understand that the Roots signing to Def Jam wasn’t a way to break the bank and make millions. It was simply a way for a bonafide hip hop group to have a hip hop label backin’ them. They didn’t sacrifice anything to be a part of Def Jam and in the end will benefit from havin’ the likes of The Carter Administration exec. producing the album. And how many people can say they bought their parents their dream house? And with no platinum album? Sheeeeeeeiiit… I’ll trade places with any one of them any day of the week. But, alas, you’ll have ig’nant and young ass hip hop fans sayin’ shit like, “they’re broke”. Meanwhile their favorite rapper drivin’ around in recoupable vehicles. Shits disgustin’ b.

    Lupe and Jay in the same GQ… pretty ill. Hopefully I’ll be back in home in time enough to catch him on Letterman.

    Don’t Larry Davis already got a dvd out? I’ll have to check HHN later.

  40. Pimpin Ken Says:

    … what’s a real nigga ? …

    >>a nigga such as myself

  41. eskay Says:

    ya’ll niggas act like there aren’t black sitcoms where you hardly see white people. shows target a certain audience and the cast reflects that. I agree that they could have had more minorities, especially Seinfeld, but its really not that serious. and that black dude smashed Miranda on SITC that one time .

  42. D. Billz Says:

    is it okay for a real nigga to wear vans?

    ^ Is that a real question? For one, I own a pair along with many other Black, West Coast (and B’more) yutes. Two, what does a sneaker have to do with “realism”?

    You’ll never see too many black shows on tv…..I mean we are only 13% of the total population.

    Also these shows are geared to a white audience who wants to see there fantasy of a white NY reflected on tv. Its just a subconcious thing.

    I wouldn’t know, I don’t watch any of those negro shows, but the point is the majority of the casts are black. why is that cool but we give Friends and Seinfeld heat? just doesn’t seem worth making a stink over..there are bigger issues.

    … stop rockin’ the pink ones …

    >>damn i have no response, im done, i killed myself

    ^ Lol… “God’s Son across the belly”… but nah, I got some ill joints with the skulls formed in a hectagon shape that I rock with a Billabong shirt, and nobody has ever popped slick in my direction. Maybe because it’s a cultural norm here for the urban youth. My pair is exclusive but I probably won’t wear them anymore because too many off-brands in my city got ‘em. But on the realz, it depends on where you’re at. If you’re in the Bay Area it’s normal out there so even the so-called “tough guys” will probably have on a pair. Contrast to being in, ohhhh, lets say Newark, NJ with a pair on. Then you’ll get your gangsta tested, and you might fail that test. But that goes for anyone who does somethin’ that’s outside the boundaries of the social norm for their demographic.

  66. D. Billz Says:

    Not for nothin’… The Underground > Chappelle Show

    I got the original cd. It was OK….. Hedidnt hide the fact that it was a commercial cd. Jay z deaded his career when he tried to hoe hov for not coming to the video shoot for that one song he had on there, but hov was like “I cant hold your hand” you know, nas’ favorite line…..

  80. iceberg slim aka im a champion Says:

    man I’m watching the davinci code this shit is dragging……if anybody drives or commutes get those audio books trust me that shit is extra entertaining

  81. green eyes Says:

    iunno about the wire, hbo had to get cut in my house saving plan, but lost kind of is. Granted they have a multi-ethnic cast, but at least this season- they have not been great about giving anyone but the paler characters major story lines and things to do. it doesnt count if you only have brown people in the background.

    on a lost tip– who the fuck are those new people???

    ^ And that led to the etherization via a Freeway verse on the Styles P. “Get High” beat. I know what video you’re talkin’ about because it used to get some shine on Rap City back in ’02. He was just way too arrogant. Dude was all over XXL braggin’ about the beat he made for RD but didn’t get credit for. Humility woulda got him a lot further.

    ^ Being that you’re from Duh-troit I can see how you would misconstrue that statement. I wasn’t comparing ‘em in the light of which one is better. I was sayin’ that if you got somethin’ against cats who rock Vans then we need to established that your dress code probably needs a E! Style type intervention. And for the record, cats here rock Rockports, i.e. I’d never cop a pair.

    It really pains me to not be able to watch seinfield. I used to love coming home from a hard days work wit a ravioli bag and watchin Kramer make a fool of himself. The fact that there were no black people on the show didnt bother me. maybe because of the way its real segragated up here. I figured it didnt mean they were racist because there were no blacks on the show, it just was filled in the part of manhattan where there were no blacks.
    Eskay, is manhattan segragated like that in real life

    ^ Yerrrrrrrr! I’m tryin’ to remember the single she dropped so that I can search for the video. I’m surprised you remembered that, youngan. You were like 9 back then, LOL. But then again, that’s the age that lil’ girls watch tv and pick up on dances and shit that they see in videos being performed by female artists.

    well not for nothing, but the black community co-signs bullshit (see the former UPN). niggas don’t watch and co-sign quality television and so we end up with coonery, basically like what happens in the music industry. plus, and I’m pretty sure we all know this, we are the minority in this country. there are demographically more white people here than black people so of course the majority of television, movies, etc are gonna reflect them and cater to what they wanna see. I’m not co-signing the ratio of white people to minorities on tv (although it has gotten alot better in the last 2 years or so) I’m just telling you why that is.

  136. eskay Says:

    Land, whatever you gotta do. we all know them crackers ain’t playing fair anyway. I just think that its not worth crying over. there are all white shows and all black shows and shows that are diverse. all of them reflect somebody’s reality.

  137. D. Billz Says:

    I think I can see where Land and Es is coming from…

    I comprehend Es’ point of view because I think that it’s unfair that we hold a standard to them that we also don’t practice. Seinfield was created by white writers and ultimately a white audience. You have to remember that sitcoms rarely depict the “realities” of life and that they are used as an exaggeration to what really goes on. I resided in Harlem for a brief period and can honestly say that it is segrated based on race and class depending on where you are. The homie Shawn Lee (DP’z) is a Lower East resident where there are mostly Ricans and Blacks. And then of course there’s the Upper East/West Sides that are predominiately white (not sure where the Seinfield show was supposed to be located). Then of course there’s Midtown, SoHo/NoHo, and other places there are predominately white until you head further Uptown of course. Ask yourself, how often would you see Blacks congregating with whites in certain areas of Manhattan? Unless they are part of that social class (i.e. co-workers, “Friends”) then it’s not nearly as common. Black and whites do co-exist in Manhattan but just on a different schedule. It wouldn’t be authentic to me to have a show based in Harlem that depicted characters of Anglo Saxon origin. Even with gentrification, whites aren’t the common norm in that area or culture. Therefore, Seinfield, IMO, was a premise for the people who could relate to it.

    On the other hand, I can understand where Land is coming from. Being that we are the oppressed, anytime a Black person/people pop up on a Black show then it is “just due”. For years they successfully excluded us from any part of their civilization while we were the ones in the background keeping it functional. I’m not sayin’ that they must include us in their shows as second class citizens just for the sake of pleasing Black people. But it is obvious to me that when shows of substantial relevance are created we are automatically excluded from the format. Once again, we are only allowed to sing, dance, and make whitey laugh because that’s all we’re good for according to white writers, producers, corporate conglomerates. Even the UPN (U Pick a Nigga) (c) Mooney shows had whites included in the plots when they weren’t needed. Alas, we still allowed white people to find work in Hollywood when that could have easily been a position filled by one of our own. Cedric the Entertainer brought this to light in his most recent comedy special. For instance, most of us don’t even know that Girlfriends is in it’s last season. Yet, shows like Friends and SITC get special tributes and farewell episodes. Cedric also mentioned that any drama show that Black writers and producers create always have to have a downplayed, sad Negro, church theme with atypical topics for the show. I admit that recent shows have included minorities and they are finally attempting to include us with social relevance. But lets also not ignore the fact that we will always be considered second class citizens in a country where our population is even second to Hispanics now (no offense to anyone of Latin origin). Though it’s WRONG, I also revel in my biased ways when it’s our turn to turn the tables. But these feelings can only be justified through the constant negligance and disregard for my people as a whole when referring to ANYTHING that includes us in the prosperity of Amerikkka.

    In conclusion, I think that we need to take more control of the type of programs are being displayed and support more of the positive roles. TvOne is doing a good job of representing us in a more refined way and it’s definitely appreciated. Meanwhile, we need to make our presence known and voice heard at in front of these corporate execs so that we can continue to be relevant to society as a whole.

    ^ I resided there in ’03, but even then I could see the change. The day my peoples came through to help me move out was when I saw a white couple moving into a new brownstone. Then the H&M popped up and I was like, yeah, it’s a wrap. Plus they were renovating the building I was living in on 133rd while residents were still in it. But my point was, being that it’s still considered the “Black” part of Manhattan, I doubt we would see a white person in a show created by Black people based in Harlem. But of course, all that is gonna change. I hate to see a Black neighborhood like Harlem get gentrified, it hurts my heart. But when you do the history, whites lived there before the Renaissance.

    History, eventually, will repeat itself…

    Konvicted would have been really tight if Akon listened to it before releasing the album. He’s voice get really annoying as you listen to the CD on your way to the 23rd track.

    ^ I understand your point of view and respect it. But understand that Blacks will always be the minority and we have to help one another at all cause. Denying you a job doesn’t mean that we have somethin’ against you in particular, it just means that we would rather reserve it for one of our own because we know the odds are against us. Besides, no one calls it racist when a Asian, Jew, Indian, or any other minority group hires their own and decides to keep the wealth within the confides of the family. Any white person who doesn’t take advantage of the monopoly that society has set up for them is a fool, because any other race would. Do you think I would get hired, a Black man, in a sneaker store in Japan? Chances are highly unlikely. Perhaps the scale is different if we’re referring to a more established business, say BET for example, who has made hundreds of millions in revenue and can “afford” to hire outside of the color spectrum since it isn’t gonna affect the establishment as a whole. Any major establishment that is owned/run by white people that hires Blacks have already acquired enough money in status in society that hiring Blacks (and meeting quota) isn’t gonna affect their business as whole.

    Minority scholarships are given to whites to attend HBCU’s all the time. Yet, I’ve never heard of Black man/woman getting accepted to a Ivy League school based on being a “minority”. And furthermore, our grades have to be far beyond excellent while the kids of rich white men are accepted without questioning (i.e. George Bush).

    You have to accept the fact that as long as we only make up a small percentage of this country, then we have to help one another to even reach minimal success and eventually become a force where we can stand on our own.

  160. DJ Premier - Remedy Interview at GRANDGOOD Says:

    [...] Link (via) How did the Christina Aguilera project happen? We got a call from her office saying that she wanted to rock with us. She flew us out to LA to kick it, and when I chopped it up with her, she was like, “Yo, I love ‘Kick in the Door’ by Biggie, I love Group Home.” I was like, “Word? So, we’re gonna be aight. Let’s do it.” And her husband is a big, big hip-hop fan. He’s a DJ. So I’m sure he had a lot of influence on her, but she was totally with all of my ideas and she knew what she wanted. Every track that we laid down, she was like, “Keep recordin’.” I was supposed to just do one song, it turned into five. And I did the intro to the album. I was honored that she was like, “You’re gonna start the album with a dope intro.” There’s crazy scratching and everything, but not where it’s a hip-hop intro, it’s a Christina Aguilera intro. I kept it like what I do. It’s cool how it starts off because it goes into three different parts before she actually comes on to sing, and then it cuts off after one verse—boom—into another song. It’s dope. [...]
