    Danny Brown is officially in that URB, Pitchfork, weirdo-drug influenced lane doing all sorts of random indie festivals with indie bands and all that. The ones that also have mini raves with techno/drum and bass/dubstep DJ’s where everybody is on ecstacy…the weirder and more drugged out the better for his fan-base.

    ^

    he’s got the right idea though

    Some of these smaller tours just hit smaller clubs and venues where the promoters fuck up and get a small crowd…and if there is a crowd it’s a sausage fest.

    I’ll hit all these raves, do a shorter set, they usually only rock for 45 minutes, and then let me just cruise the crowd and hit up all the chicks that are out and about. Especially if it’s overseas…shit would be dope.

  67. Harlem World Says:

    cudi got a loyal fanbase- ive witnessed this shit for myself

    but he doesnt do drugs or drink anymore – i think that may have killed his career

    its the alt rap equivalent of 50 rapping that murda talk – but living in a mansion in connecticut

  68. TruthSerum Says:

    My money’s on French…..Future…and even tho I aint bother to see his set at Paid Dues….Macklemore….He has a cult following….The rest….I dunno bout….Iggy look like she one sextape away from MTO obscurity….Kid Ink a byproduct of Tyga, Wiz, and Wayne’s DNA…..Danny Brown look like he bout to OD any sec, even tho his music is decent…..Don Trip got about as much personality as that damn hammer he holding….he can rap his ass off, tho, but Starlito shoulda been up there w/ him…or….in his place….Rest of them niggaz is Recycle Bin status….Click my screen name to check out sum Paid Dues footage….3-6 Mafia….We Trippy Mane!!!!

    I mean wale is a fuckboy who ruined spitta’s single, but he gave us “mixtape about nothing” and “back to the feature” .. What has Big Sean gave us? Besides plenty of headaches

MGK might could do sum thing…he got that diverse fan base….Yo’ OF n’ Wu similar in that they got loyal fan bases who cross racial lines….W/ all this hyper racial tension, an artist NEEDS to appeal to EVERYBODY if they wanna succeed….Can’t focus on only one thing, diversify ya portfolio…..

    ^^^

    Word.

    He’s only a hit away though. He hasn’t made THAT song yet and since it’s T.I., I don’t doubt the guy. Now whether the entire body of work will be any decent is another question, but I know he has a dope single or 3 on deck for when he’s ready. Technically, he was due a lull anyway. See Jeezy.

    He definitely pissed a great career away though. Knocked himself off that Mini-Jigga path.

  95. AmpGeez a.k.a. Amphernee Hardaway Says:

    hes just a rapper who just so happens to be white
    ^^^

    But he’s basic. In the same way Jadakiss is basic.

    Both have bars and some songs but sometimes it gets monotonous as far as content & flow.

    IMO of course.

    ^^^

    He’s had an album (and a half, he scrapped tracks from King Uncaged & a deluxe edition of Paper Trail) and two mixtapes to get his feet back under him.

    He’s gonna get on the radio but the intensity he used to bring to tracks back from Trap Muzik up until T.I. Vs. T.I.P. is gone.

    He’s just another bamma rapper now.

    T.I. know he aint even the king in his hometown, he’s just rapping to finish out them albums he owe atlantic

    i dont understand this guy tho

    t.i was on some “im turning over a new leaf” steez on paper trail

    he was making songs about living life to the fullest and turning his back on that king of the trap shit

    and then in the next breath he’s talking about the trap again

    but people already seen him take the stand and also that reality tv show – where he tries to play the nice guy role model lane

    t.i vs tip. the guy might really be bipolar, split personality swag

    like you said tho – i cant really rule him out

    you are truly only as hot (ll)as your last record

    another hit from t.i and people will probably be back on his jock again

    snitch or not snitch debate aside, i dont like to admit it but t.i is a good rapper

    but i think he lost the streets a long time ago imo

    ross peeped game and capitalized

    i can agree with this – t.i more so than ross tho

    lyor cohen been tryna take him under his wing, like he tried with jay over at def jam

    before t.i was superstar status ,lyor said t.i was the jay-z of the south

    he spared no expense to keep him out of jail – t.i is good money – got an eye for talent

    ross tryna be like shakir stewart – he took a chance signing “street” rappers like jeezy x ross just like ross is tryna do with meek, french etc

    cBc Tip as a top tier rapper but his song making done fell all the way off
    ^^^

    He fell vctim to the 50 Cent syndrome.

    Worked so hard to get Pop acceptance, he lost the streets & now that the sales are waning, he wants to come back to his day one fans…and they are no longer there, for various reasons.

    Tip needs new blood around him, new patnas to bounce ideas & flows off of.

    Trae was a good start but he’s gonna need more.

    Paul Wall on Grand Hustle wouldn’t be a crazy signing. And they need an East Coast element up there too.

    No he don’t.

    Dro & B.O.B, that’s it.

    They couldn’t move any records with Killer mike either, even with that Mike Bigga bullshit.

    Grand Hustle is a boutique label geared for T.I.’s releases.

    Half the niggas that started out with him in P$C aren’t even down no more.

    And I’m not gonna even mention AlfaMega.

    Big Sean was tolerable on that Mercy joint

    No-sign. Big Sean literally brings nothing to his songs. You remember the features, beats, and hooks more than him. His songs succeed despite his atrociousness.

    i never saw signing under rappers as a good idea

    but 2 success stories is a decent amount

    Sheltons ep was another exercise in too much effort and too little result…
    he still a wack MC wasting studio time..
    his 1001 crack fables is obsessive..
    that aint no diss…thats a dedication…
    niggas is starstruck..
    orions belt did that…
    who dedicates 11 songs to a man?
    btches do that.

  120. Danny Ocean Says:

    you’d think that after as many years in the industry as someone of T.I.’s pedigree put in, as many albums and musical accomplishments as he’s received…

    after a while, they would start to expand their horizons sotospeak. natural progression. not necessarily “falling off.” that’s a strong word with various connotations.

    Clifford is still very much relevant and getting paper. his show on Vh1 with Tiny was dope in my opinion, and he’s overseeing several side projects ranging from his clothing line (lol), to side groups & record labels, etc.

    i respect it.

    nosign rapping at 40 years old unless your name is shawn carter.
