  10. jderrida Says:

    Juelz is not moving any records.

    Santana is competent enough to rap a decent few bars but that tape will be a poor attempt for relevancy.

    21 songs long and 11 of which will be failed attempts at crossing over into the many different sub rap genres. Just imagine Juelz spitting semi struggle bars over a mike will made it beat featuring a bumbling Trinidad James, Not Interested.

    The other ten maybe good but given the typical rapper shooting percentage only three will have replay value. But such value tends to have a six month long self life.

  11. B Says:

    Of course I came here looking to be a rapper
    But the constant L’s turned me into a troll

    i wonder if MGK will do a song called “meth”

    ^
    Like a full meth concept album. Call it: Great Lakes/C.O.L.D. Ice . Have a polaroid of a meth lab as the album cover. Tell me that wouldn’t be dope.

  15. jderrida Says:

    I’d trade those two for 3 young catch shooters and maybe a stretch four.

    ^^^

    You’ll trade the best defensive center (when healthy) and one of the three most talented big men for 3 shot up shooters and a stretch four aka a 6’10” nigga to scared to play in the post?

    Sounds like an attempt to rebuild the ship D’Antoni captain in Phoenix’s glory days…Which begs the question why?

    Those hired to be GMs of basketball teams rather have the size and skill of Howard and Gasol anchoring their front court than a couple shooting specialist…

    ^

    While it is likely that Howard will stay with the Lakers after this year, it is not a sure thing. Add to that Pau doesn’t fit in D’Antoni’s offense.

    So you could either keep D’antoni Nash and Kobe together with shooters freeing them up, in a league in which dominant post play is becoming an anachronism. While simultaneously hoping that you stumble upon a potential franchise quality young player in a trade.

    Or… fire D’antoni, and hope Howard both signs after likely missing the playoffs and that his spine heals, his numbers have been decent but dude doesnt look dominant at all. And simultaneously hope Pau can put up exponentially better numbers next year despite being old as shit.

    I just question Howard being the centerpiece of a team at this point in his career. Plus using the logic of what you said about GM’s you could probably get a lot more talentwise through trading Pau and Dwight than they are worth. Maybe you are right though.

    Sick where you at. I’m fucking around sampling one of your beats.

  68. Flowdini Says:

    what if Nas and Jay-Z never really squashed it , and they still have tension. in 2001 it was very clear that Nas won that battle , but damn near 12 years later bloggers and some radio personality’s are discrediting Ether , and saying how much better take over was. the fans at that time clearly thought Ether was a better diss record. i to this day think it was a knock out. now in my conspiracy theorist mind , i feel Nas got played a little. 1. swiss beats was the original producer of that record. but then ron browns did it. what happened ? why didn’t swiss finish the record ? what did the swiss version sound like ? 2. for years on different web sites i had seen some verse that also mentions big pun pulling out on jigga , but i never heard it on wax , mp3 , cd , nothing. i read that Colombia kept going back to Nas saying he was to harsh , chill out , and kept telling him to change it up. i want to hear what how original version sounded like. now , the jay-z side of things. ok , so he lost the battle , issues start to come up over at the roc , with dame , cam’ron , the state property mc’s getting into legal trouble , ect. i’m convinced that after blue print 2 jay was like ” i need to get away and come back stronger. so he “retires” , drops the black album , dead’s his business with dame , and starts to reformulate a master plan. it comes down to money. look at what jay-z was worth in 2003 , and now. he made genius moves in the business world. money is power. so he goes , gets his money right , becomes the president to def jam , signs “hit makers” and then gets ready to comes back. i think he must have read some ancient war / revenge manual cuz so far it looked perfect how he was working it. he has the i declare war stunt and brings nas out who he just happens to squash the beef with. then he signs him to some weird deal at defjam with Colombia. then he drops kingdom come. now personally , i liked kingdom come. i thought it was a solid record. (side note: jay-z worst album was vol.1.) but it may have rubbed some people the wrong way … they wanted that gangsta pimp jay-z , not the filthy rich guy. a month later after a delay , hip-hop is dead drops , and we finally get a song with them both. beat was solid , but that nas verse , eh… the jay-z verse was fire. could be he had a few extra bars then nas … eh what even. so then a year later boom , American gangster is born. the synergy was a perfect match even tho the movie was so-so , not the classic it was built up to be , but that album was. Nas and jay on a track again , and yet again jay-z out does him (side note: i am a die hard Nas fan). Nas drops untitled after label issues and its a solid album for it’s concept. a few misses on it , but over all a good album. (Nastradamus is his only trash album) now , i think that at defjam jay made it seem as if he had good intentions for nas , but look at hiphop is dead , and nigger. they were not handled well. and on top of that , he wanted to drop a lost tapes 2 , and that was met with a no. period. jay aint have any say in any of that ? i wonder. then , who helps (but really straight up writes) the jigga book ? dream. who claims that the nigger album had ghostwriters ? dream. who is jay “friends” with ? dream. come on man , tell me all this don’t look fishy ? i’d rather believe what i think to be true then any jay-z Illuminati theory.
