Young Jeezy Responds To Dennis Miller And Billo

After the largely one sided racially fueled rant Billo and D.Miller went on reguarding Jeezy and Jay-Z's performence at the inaguration [which was cut into a clip that takes the lyrical meaning out of context], Jeezy was going to go on Billo's show and argue his point but later decided not to, instead he does a new verse on "My President". check out the song below with download link. TGTRAX. Also watch the Billo and Dennis Miller Video HERE.

Papa Bear Bill O'Reilly, Dennis Miller Attacks Obama's Speech, Jay-Z and Young Jeezy

Check how they use Obama to attack Jay-Z and Jeezy and then spin right around and attack Obama. Watch Dennis Miller say racist shit like "Fight the power, brother", and "Peace Out". I guess racism will solider on and never end, and i guess faux news will be the public forum to push it on.

p.s the full quote from Jay-Z's line is:

My president is black in fact he’s half white
So even in a racists mind hes half right
So if you got a racists mind its alright
My president is black but his house is all white
Rosa Parks sat so Martin Luther could walk
Martin Luther walked so Barack Obama could run
Barack Obama ran so all the children could fly
So Ima spread my wings you can meet in the sky

Full video of the proformence below aswell as Billo and Dennis Millers misleading rant [they play on the stupidity of their audience, its appalling].

Spotlight: Mickey Factz


Mickey's been around for awhile. He used to be called Renegade. He used to be called Jack Danielz (WTF?). A resident of the Bronx, Mickey was a ghostwriter over the years for many rappers like Remy Ma. In the past, he had to turn down a deal from Missy Elliot's label, and it seemed the right move since he's now one of the hottest new hip hop artists on the market.
What I think is worthwhile about Mickey is the fact that he is simply not a rapper, but an emcee. At first I was weary. Mickey seemed like The Cool Kids or The Pack, basically just another fashion rapper. I didn't judge too much, I listened. Then I listened some more.

More Police Trouble


I know this may seem a bit dumb, but you still get that oppressive feeling. Not worth going to court? Yeah, that's some bulls***. Steering an ordinary citizen out of court because of the fees. Homer Simpson might be telling the truth.

Police Shootings: A Retrospective


One would think that after Rodney King, CSI and all of the advances in criminal technology, people would be more likely to get convicted and less likely to be wrongfully accused. It seems as though these "accidental" shootings are happening more and more frequently and less and less is being done about it. Not much else to say, the rest is self-explanatory.

Adolph Grimes

Oscar Grant

New Years night. Taken off the subwway because of an altercation on a subway, Oscar Grant and a couple friends were being held on the passenger platform. Grant was handcuffed and shot in the back. The officer who shot him has since resigned and will not talk to media. He has also not been charged for the shooting.

Sean Bell

On the eve of his wedding, Bell was at a club in Jamaica Queens, DC. An argument supposedly took place between the clubowner and another woman. Supposedly, one of Bell's friends told Bell to get his gun. An undercover cop followed Bell into his car and told him to raise his hands, allegedly not identifying himself. Bell allegedly accelerates and hits the cop and an unmarked police van. Police come out of the van and hit Bell with 50 shots. Some say, he was hit without warning and without the cops identifying themselves.

Some more details:

The douchebag side of things:

Amadou Diallo

A twenty-three year old immigrant from Guinea. He came to the US to study biochemistry. Even though his application for politcal asylum was made up, he was legally allowed to be in the US since he had a visa. The day of the shooting, the police (Edward McMellon, Sean Carroll, Kenneth Boss and Richard Murphy; in ordinary clothes) thought Diallo fit the description of a serial rapist. Diallo ran up to his apartment, and on the chase, one of the cops yelled "GUN!" since Diallo supposedly reached into his jacket. They shot him 41 times. The Medical Examiner said he was even hit while on the ground.

On The World's Worst Freestyles...


I have nothing against south rap, but it seems that the whole slow, inarticulate style bleeds out of the lower part of the USA. I remember something Common said a while ago: "To be able to rap is a gift...you get this microphone in front of you, what're you gonna do that's gonna sound original, true to you. Lyricism sparks the minds of it listeners...we need lyricism in hip hop. We love it." I'm not sure it it's a case of rappers not listening to lyrical rap, not growing on it, or just so arrogant that they are afraid to get better. It could have a lot to do with the friends around them (Check the Gucci Mane vid below). I thought I was going to do a blog about wack rappers, have some fun, etc. I realize now that this more of a plea for help. Dumb s*** wouldn't sell so much if people didn't like it. Education is is the s***ter, so maybe that's where it needs to start.

Kinda hurts my stomeach when his mans next to him put their hands up in the air "oh snap, he's ill."

On a fun note (if you weren't haven't fun already), a bonus classic:

Is Hip-Hop Jumping Out The Window?

listen to this as you read

There used to be a time when I looked forward to a new album release, that's not to say I don't any more, but more like in BB Kings words “the thrill is gone”. I remember saving my lunch money for the latest DMX album and talking ad nauseam about who the best rapper was [with the focus on lyricism, not who's the hottest [looking at you MTV]. Flash forward to 2008 hip-hop has evolved into one long Sarah Palin meets MC Hammer infomercial, polluted with stupid dances and unintelligible lyrics, how could it be? How could the genre that helped shape my thoughts on grammar, racism, sex, and poverty amongst other things decay to the point me and Kanye West both, no longer listen to hip-hop regularly?. Is Hip-Hop dead?,[sorry rap haters] absolutely not! because there is an underground brewing with creativity and talent [think how Emo helped rock], with the new year on the bubble will record executives finally take notice [but they probably wont].

Ring tones Killed The Hip-Hop Star

The death of hip-hop wasn't subtle, it began back in 2004 when “the attack of the ring tone rappers” happened. A ring tone rapper is an artist who has a catchy single, which their label pushes on the radio, TV and Internet these artist may sell a million ring tones but usually flop in album sales. This strategy was tried and true in the nineties, but that was before the Internet, CD burners, and mp3 players [not to mention the quality in the music]. Ring tone rappers like Mims, and Soulja Boy Tellem who are typically slim on the lyrical content and fat on the beats and party themes are the recent ring tone leaders with hits like “Crank That”, and “This Is Why I'm Hot” which both sold millions of ring tones respectively. This strategy has proven detrimental to Hip-Hop with album sales declining more then 30% over 6 years.

Who Can Save Hip-Hop?

The underground movement in hip-hop is very very strong right now, with industry survivor Joe Budden leading the way. Joe Budden knows what its like to be a ring tone rapper, he had the smash hit “Pump It Up” in 2003 which earned him a Grammy nomination. Joe's career seemed to be launching when disaster hit, his album sold a little over 500,000 copies [it went Gold], back then if you didn't go platinum on Def-Jam you would be dropped or the label lost confidence in you. This left Joe in limbo with the label, with mounting pressure to rekindle “Pump It Up” for his sophomore album but Joe had already evolved as an artist and wasn't interested in making the same records. This move proved costly for Joe the label wouldn't drop him and Joe wouldn't release his masters to them a stalemate ensued. Thats when Joe had an epiphany he realized that the Internet was his friend. Joe began working on the Mood Muzik series which featured all new original songs about his personal life. The buzz Joe received from the mixtapes earned him awards and accolades which brought the big labels back knocking, but Joe learned from his Def-Jam days and signed on with an independent label Amalgam Digital who now release his albums on the Internet, with a retail album coming next year.

The Candidates

Independent labels are more and more becoming home for underground artist like Blu & Exile, The Cool Kids, Joel Ortiz, and Papoose to name a few. Smaller labels use blog's and mixtapes to get their artist broken in, which proves to be less costly and very effective. The rise of the underground artist isn't the end of the established artist and big labels though with artist like Jay-Z, Nas, Ludacris, T.I., and The Game leading the way with great buzz worthy albums this year. Proving that the quality is there but label backing, radio play, and sales aren't. Piling on to that there are the creative and genre bending artist like Lupe Fiasco, Kanye West, Common and 88-Keys among others. These artist represent the evolution of hip-hop but labels don't typically push or green light there projects.

Change Or Die

The music industry must change to survive, they must start with artist development and end with quality content. Big Labels have to learn how to beat small labels at their own game because blog's dictate whats cool now, not MTV. Think how Def-Jam did it in the nineties they signed Ja rule, Jay-Z and DMX at the same time, those artist at their prime went 3-5x platinum every go round. I remember DMX was featured on song after song and he killed every song he was on [like Fabolous on Lil Mo records], Ja rule followed and Jay-Z had smash hits at will, the difference between them and Mims and Soulja Boy is simple they could rap, they were polished and they put out superior product that had me saving my lunch money. I want to go back to the days of “arguing all day on who's the best rapper alive? Biggie, Jay-Z or Nas?.”
