YOUNG JEEZY ON NEW PROJECT

“I’m doin’ what any nigga would do on his fourth album. I’m gettin’ it together. I’m not just gon’ give you anything, to be hot and relevant. That don’t make sense. That’s like telling a muthafucka anything just to get it done. I’ma be straight up with you, so when you walk away, even if you ain’t satisfied, I kept it real. I kept it 100. And that’s the way I feel. I wouldn’t even call it the top of my game. I’m just really figuring out the music shit.”

Shyne Covers XXL September Issue [With Picture]

Def Jam recording artist Shyne covers half of the September issue of XXL magazine. ATL rapper Young Jeezy covers the other half.

SHYNE ON DIDDY

“I don’t know whether he was nervous, afraid,” Shyne says of Puffy. “When you’re afraid and you’re emotional, that’s a different survival tactic. Those are the people that do anything, regardless of character and integrity, to preserve and protect themselves, regardless of who they hurt. I guess maybe that was the situation. Never been in a situation like that, where he facing years, and he got hundreds of millions and all that shit at stake. But where I’m from, doesn’t matter. You lose everything for your comrade. Again, if you’re in battle, I’ll catch a bullet, too. It ain’t like, Yo, he’s dead. Don’t make no sense for me to die, too. Nah, I’ma die, too! So you hope or you take for granted that all men are the same. But I know all men are not.”

SHYNE ON HIS BID

“I looked at bein’ in the pen for 10 joints as my opportunity to concentrate, to get things in perspective. And I never let it devastate me, although it was devastating, because I never thought I was gonna be in jail for 10 years. I thought I was gon’ make a bail. I thought I was gon’ get my shit reversed. I’m terribly optimistic.”

SHYNE ON RETURNING TO BELIZE

“I always knew it was a possibility I might be deported. I had lawyers, and I had people with serious relationships working to get me a fuckin’ opportunity to continue my life in the place that raised me and developed me and grew me, after payin’ my debt, ya dig?”

The September issue will be on news stands the end of the week or early next week.

Rappers That Are Most Likely Not To Make A Comeback

Some rappers are very blessed to have a successful music career, and others aren’t. In our Hip-Hop era today, rappers are lucky if they can stay relevant for five consecutive years and release a minimum of three albums. Some rappers got on, was popping for the moment, then they disappeared and we never heard from them again. Other rappers are just “one hit wonders,” ask Mims.  They had a hit record, and when record died down, they’re career did as well. I came up with a list of five rappers that are most likely not to make a comeback. The five rappers that I chose, was hot for the moment or are “one hit wonders.”

1.  Mase

Mase is best known for being Puff Daddy’s sidekick back in the late 90’s.  Mase was first introduced to the music industry back in 1996, when he was featured on 112’s song “Only You.” The success of the song, gained  Mase a worldwide fanbase, and he soon became one of the hottest rappers of the 90’s. A few months later, still without releasing an album, Mase was featured on Puffy Daddy’s song “Can’t Nobody Hold Me Down” and Biggies number one hit record “Mo Money, Mo Problem.” In 1997, Mase released his debut album Harlem World, which went 4x platinum. The album  singles “Feel So Good” and “Look At Me” peaked number one on the Billboard rap charts.  In 1999 Mase released his second album  Double Up. It did not live up to the expectations and was a major failure compared to his first album. The album only went gold (500,000 copies). That same year, Mase announced his retirement from rap on Hot 97 NYC with DJ Funk Master Flex to find GOD. Mase founded GOD then made his return back  to Hip-Hop in 2004 with his album Welcome Back, which went gold. In 2005, Mase did some recording with 50 Cent and G-unit and was rumored to be signed to G-Unit and SRC Records but the deals were never finalized because Puff didn’t want to sell Mase contract for under $2 million. Mase then disappeared from rap again and went back to GOD. In June of 2009, Mase ended his feuded with childhood friends Jim Jones and Cam’ron. In July 0f 2009, Mase released a new track “Get It” Ft. Cam’ron and Vado, and did a remix to Drake’s “Best I Ever Had.”  Mase was released from his contract with Puff Daddy and Bad Boy records.  As far as his music career, I don’t know where he stands.

2. Chingy

In 2003, his debut single “Right Thurr” put him on the map and gained success worldwide, which lead to his debut album Jackpot selling over two million copies. In 2004, Chingy left Ludacris and DTP Records because of money issues. Since leaving Luda and DTP, Chingy really haven’t been able to make a hit record. Chingy’s 2004 album Powerballin, 2006 album Hood Star, and 2007 Hate It Or Love  were all failures and didn’t sell more than a few hundreds thousands copies. It was rumored that Chingy is working  on his fifth album Success & Failures, but after doing some research there is no release date or tracklisting. The last time I heard something about  Chingy, he was out in L.A. and down in ATL messing with gay men and a trannies.

Shots Fired: 50 Cent Goes At Diddy Live In Brazil

At a recent concert in Brazil, 50 Cent took shots at Diddy. During 50 performance, he added the remix to “Bitch” dissing Diddy and he poked fun at him by doing the dance that Diddy does in his video “Hello, Good Morning.”

50 is really a jealous dude. Every time a rapper gets bigger than him, he talks down on them and disses them. Honestly, I think 50 is mad at the fact that Diddy is now managing Rick Ross and created Dream Team with Rick Ross, Fabolous, DJ Khaled, Red Cafe, Fat Joe, Swizz Beatz and Busta Rhymes.
