Video: Curtis’ Thoughts on Drake’s Buzz

I wouldn’t use the word jealousy here, but he certainly does sound mad that Interscope didn’t put up 2 mill for him.

    di bwoy salt up

  2. Sound Vertie Says:

    Jealousy, nah, 50 was ruling the streets, Drizzy is on the radio with industry folks dying to scoop. And industry folks are co-signing like crazy.
    Why? cuz girls dig’em , I guess.

    Drake= hip-hops John Mayer

  3. FaMs! Says:

    I watched Ali knock Tyson out 3 times in the FiGHT NIGHT commercial trying to see this vid, WTF?

    Tyson > Ali

    and Curtis…..STOP IT SON! ….you and Joe Budden share the same play book.

  4. Mr. P Says:

    Fif is kinda right. He had no co sign. Drake got everyone( Jay,Kanye, Mary J, Jamie fox etc) helping him. 50 didnt have the co sign innitially. Who Jam Master J? (R.I.P) .Damn Rosci on 106&Park stay mentioning his name evey chance she gets.Plus 50cent was more organinc/origional EVEN THOUGH HE IS A JERK NOW.
    KANYE (contennt) +WAYNE (Flow)+TREY SONGS (Vocals)= DRAKE

  5. JDollaz12 Says:

    just finished that bob vs. bobby ray tape, honestly my first time really checking for dude’s music. gotta say, first half > second half.
    it’s cool he’s eclectic and everything, but i personally just can’t get into all the guitars. he def got some wordplay to him, and he has his own lane. he’ll def. be successful, he ain’t touchin 3 stacks though so that comparison should stop asap.

  6. Prince Says:

    yo i give it by august for curtis to start dissing drake and weezy

  7. ILLIONAIRE Says:

    He was signed to Interscope at one point, by the way.

  8. R.J.Orion Says:

    first of all … 50 didnt have to pay all the blogs to say he had a buzz … he just had one … Drake’s buzz is media contrived … the industry media outlets keep beating you over the head with Drake headlines until the average fans think that he’s an artist of some etreme status … when he’s really just a child actor aspiring to be a rapper, while having moderately OK mc skills …

    dont believe the hype …

    Co signature

    I peeped dude for the first time on his mixtape and the first half of the cd he was killin shit but as it got to the songs he produced he lost me, so it was 50/50

  10. Seth Gueko Says:

    drake will have a platinium first solo album ?

  11. Rey Says:

    Why is 50 mad? Drake will have an even shorter Honeymoon than Curtis did.

    summerjam fans aint the only rap fans … more rap fans DONT go to summerjam than do go … alotta people go to summerjam just to say they went to summerjam … i have NEVER met ANYONE outside of nahright who has even HEARD of Drake … sweartogod … a whole entire world of hiphop fans exist outside of nahgright, 2dopeboys and summerjam shows …

  19. FaMs! Says:

    This is coming from a TRUE (In Too Deep Soundtrack “99″) 50 Cent fan…50 is SCARED!

    50 can say what he want about Hot 97 and Power 105….but I hear the bitches blasting the “Best I Ever Had” dirty version at the park in NYC while niggas is playing Ball.

    I’m in Detroit for summer break and these hood hoes got all three of homies mixtape on shuffle in their whip…

    50 stop being a faggot, you almost 40 dissing niggas half your age to support you buzz…”Guerilla Unit” is dead!

  20. Suezar Says:

    ^^ although at the time, THE REASON for 50′s buzz is the exact reason for drake’s.. a “big” or “hyped” industry artist cosigning them.. because before em started talkin about 50, niggas was NOT fuckin with his music. same with lil wayne and drake.

  21. R.J.Orion Says:

    @Detroit P

    my mother is dead… so you feeling sorry for her, or disrespecting her in anyway, is an excercise in futility … but for you to stoop so low in defense of that lil nigga Drake (or Mike Tyson) is a true testament to your online, and presumably offline, faggotry …

  22. Tmurphy Says:

    jealousy? nah, drizzys buzz is a mainstream buzz its nothin like fifs was on the underground with the mixtapes…im sure he wuda prefered more money but fifs got plenty of that now i think the jealousy might belong to nate dre n esk

  26. D_block_4_life Says:

    RJ,

    I don’t know about where you at but all they play is Drake on the radio up here, so your contention that Drake isn’t known outside the net is erroneous.

    PS i think he can rap, nothing more nothing less.

  27. Rey Says:

    you niggas need to turn off the radio once in a while … you are being programmed by bullshit … you can tell its true because niggas get so pussified and emotional when you dont believe in their favorite artists … some of yall are some nutgrabbing queers … if someone dont like who you like, why insult them, you dumb fucks? … people have different tastes … just like you can find people to cosign that bullshit, i can find just as many who think its garbage … dont try to force that bubblegum bullshit on me; my musical tastes are far too refined and sophisticated …

    does anyone know where you can buy johnathan manions photography that shit was hot.

  35. Tmurphy Says:

    he has a website you can go to…the web adress is his name type that shit into google

  36. Parcitizen Says:

    50 Cent buzz??? why cuz he’s poppin on the radio??? He’s singin to girls…no hatin, but its a completely different buzz. He’s on cuz his image and music is catered to women and Lil’ Wayne co-sign. Again no hate, but if it were up to just him as an emcee on a street level, he’d be any other dude u could name on nahright that’s not on radio. Dope as hell, but stuck in the underground. And I don’t think he’s the savior of hip hop, Mary. But he’s more than likely the turning point.

  37. Kuffismacker Says:

    The buzz isnt really very industry made. I think labels will sign new acts before announcing it if the talent make senses to get the buzz moving . An unsigned act cant really get played on the radio payola is too heavy now.

  38. Yung Che Says:

    nigga jealous… drizzzy here…

  39. Nese Pooh Says:

    Man 50 has NO idea!! “Worked”?? If that is the case then its just recently, becasue Drake has been around for a few years now. SO FAR GONE is NOT his 1st mixtape. His buzz is ABSOLOUTELY ORGANIC!! All streets word of mouth is what got him the buzz he has now. So if labels are linening up now to spin his records or to sign him, then so beat it. He deserves it. He worked his way up from the very bottom to get to this point. This aint no overnight success! And he still has a ways to go. OBVIOUSLY 50 HAS NO F*CKING IDEA!

    there it is..co-sign

  42. Nice Says:

    First off I would like to say disregard R.J Orion cause on every post thats with drake, all he does is hate on the kid. Boy get a hobby seriously its pathetic. Second, I would like to state that this is the beginning of the 50 vs Drake beef. It isnt anything right now but as Drake grows 50 is going to beef. Third, Drake will win the beef and it will propell him to super stardom. Thats just my prediction…

  43. Nese Pooh Says:

    I wouldnt say 50 is jealous but he obviously has no clue about the “Drake buzz”. Especially since he thinks its NOT COMPLETELY ORGANIC. The reason Drake’s records are being played on the radio NOW is because his ORGANIC BUZZ has grown so large w/in the past year that the radio HAD NO CHOICE but to take notice and find out who this kid is.. He definitely wasnt being worked, unless by his loyal fans.. People word of mouth goes a long way and this is not an overnight thing for Drake. He’s been putting out mixtapes for a few years now and his buzz has grown accordingly!!

    ———————————————————

    LMAO@the blatant hate. Ni**as kill me basing their opinion on dude’s latest mixtape, like he came from nowhere and hasn’t been grinding for years to get in this here game, the same game in which 50 Cent hasn’t done anything for (at least those last 2 sh*tsandwiches I refuse to consider albums).

    Like one of the commenters above stated, go listen to Comeback Season or Room For Improvement. You don’t collab with cats like Nickelus F, Elzhi and Phonte to “get on”. Those are cats that respect the game and the artform, so that alone should tell you dude is a head at heart.

  46. Nese Pooh Says:

    Man I done got a lil pissed out by this damn blog.. lol 50 done pissed me off! I go hard for drake and have for years now! I cant stand when people try to discredit him as if he’s just hooked up with Wayne and POW he’s poppin!! NOT THE CASE AT ALL. Dude has been griding since Room For Improvement… Check your history man.

  47. scawty scawty Says:

    rj’s too refined & sophisticated

    bahahahaha what a joke

  48. DarBouZe! Says:

    He didn’t pay all the blogs. Fifty payed all the DJ’s so that notion is garbage

  49. jaffyjoe Says:

    Listen I got no issues with dude . But its just funny too me that he got cosign by wayne yet I should overlook that and the fact dude is obviously connected. At least when papoose came out he was grinding hard the commercial success didnt materialize. But to have a dude playing a role in mickey mouse club type of show being cosign by a crew claimin blood all day seems kind of odd. Plus this aint like pop were your background doesnt matter rap aint the same unless officer ricky made it ok to be a fraud

  50. Nese Pooh Says:

    Drake blog…. Octobersveryown.blogspot.com check it out!!

  51. rrahha Says:

    actually 50 started that “big money” signing bonus thing…the only reason that they are giving them out is because fif made good on his. he got a cool mil and that was more than anyone at that time.

  52. DaStreets Says:

    I also doubt that 50 is jealous…you have to admit that you hear drake’s record a bit much for an artist who still has no deal…may be the wayne cosign or the label push behind the seens but u have to be smoking if you think that records get played on the radio without some paper being exchnaged…

    why do you think radio is the way it is now…labels push the records who will bring in that ring tone money…artists who had no problem getting spins just a year ago can’t get love now a days…trust me on this..taste don’t change that quick

  53. HipHopSince1989 Says:

    to 50 Cent:”u maaaad???!!!” and while Curtis mite b right about Drake’s buzz not bein 100% organic, that still doesnt excuse him for hatin on an upcoming MC who’s talent by far outshines any of his freshman brethren as well as many established artists…If 50 does feel that way, he shouldn’t have said it on camera, it makes him look bitter and very jealous…and jealousy=weakness…Curtis, u mite win some, but u just lost one…

  54. JDre Says:

    thats not hate payola is a mother fkr all hes saying is that the label is getting him spins to lure him to sign with them… if hes telling the truth can it be called hate? or calling a spade a spade?

  55. Aggressive Content Says:

    I think 50 and a lot of you are forgetting that in the beginning “aggressive content” prevented 50 from getting spins on the radio.

    Think about the first 50 records getting spins…..Problem Child/How To Rob. That’s NOT going to get play on the POP/R&B stations, nor is it going to pop up on the R&B/Hip-Hop stations before 9PM. Let’s not forget the individuals he pissed off with “How To Rob”, who for sure did what they could to stop 50′s movement.

    Fast forward to when In The Club dropped he NOW had a record that could play on ANY POP/R&B station WHENEVER and he had co-signs from Dr Dre and Eminem.

    Drake lost points with me for reading off his blackberry on Flex’s show, but to myself he makes up for that elsewhere with how well rounded he is in his collaboration and the skill he shows in his craft. As an MC Drake is certified, and I feel like that’s undeniable, regardless of your preference in content.

  56. Flid-die Says:

    50 is right. U can say he an ahoel, he mad, but u can’t leave out what he said. it’s fact

    ^^^^^^^^
    Why is it fact, cause 50 said it? People always conufuse the fact that 50 CAN articulate his point with his point being valid. This nigga DRAKE is touring, TOURING off a mixtape. 50 was doing shows in the Tri State when he was buzzing.

    It’s about trends, timing & public taste (which changes every few years). 50 WAS the hot dude, for a min. But it’s this kid Drake’s time now. I saw the nigga in the same venue I’ve seen Nas, Common, T.I. etc. and he sold it out off a mixtape. 50 is the past and it’s only a matter of time before he goes at yo. Who’ll burn his ass up lyrically. Trust.

  57. DaStreets Says:

    FYI…50 was also touring off of a mixtape back in the day..if memory serves me correct he was the first artist to do that…

    like someone else said..drake has not achieved 1/3 of what 50 has achieved..I admit he has a buzz …..I will leave it at that

  58. Luvzones Says:

    I don’t think 50 is hatin on Drake he is just saying what he thinks. Not to take anything away form Drake but there are alot MC’s out there that can spit better than him and they will never get this type of BUZZ. Money talks and U better believe that Drake been having money, plus the exposer he has had with Degrassi has helped alot. 50 never had that.

  59. Rico Says:

    I sense alil jealousy/hate from nahright.. 50 just stating his opinion and infact we all know 50 is a good business man he knows what hes talking about. 50′s buzz when he came out was goldy (no blasphy )

  60. fuzz e. Says:

    alright guys…I am a die hard hip hop fan…i heard drake’s first two mixtapes and thats why i say that boy can rhyme his ass off. I was paying attn to this kid way before the best i ever had ish. don’t get mad at the hype. he just figured out how to work the industry…his having been an actor is irrelevant. he can rhyme…thats all that matters.
