Swizz Beatz And DMX Reuniting For Another Project; Plus The Game Signs with Cash Money Records


Music producer, creative director and fashion designer Swizz Beatz took to his official Instagram account @TheRealSwizzz and posted the above picture with the caption “It’s time for this to happen again !!! Got dammit👊👊👊👊 what do you think?” and many people suggested that the multi-platinum Hip-Hop artist (DMX) and Grammy Award winning producer (Swizz Beatz) were reuniting again for another project. The twosome has a historic relationship that dates back to the mid 90’s. They were both apart of the legendary Ruff Ryders crew and Swizz also produced some of DMX’s chart-topping hits including “Ruff Ryders Anthem,” “Money, Cash H**s,” “Party Up (Up In Here)” and may more. In the photo, DMX is to the left wearing a “DMX” bucket hat while Swizz sat on the right in a “DMX” snapback. Can DMX and Swizz Beatz do it again?


After years of rumors and much speculation, Compton-native and former Aftermath/G-Unit rapper The Game has officially signed with Birdman’s Rich Gang/Cash Money Records. He fulfilled his contractual obligations with Interscope/Geffen Records last year, after he released his fifth solo offering, Jesus Piece. Expect a new project from The Game in the near future. Do you think this was a good move on The Game’s behalf?

Cash Money Rapper Turk RELEASED From Prison; Plus BMF Members Bleu Davinci & Big Meech EXPOSED Jeezy

After serving almost nine years, Cash Money’s Hot Boys rapper Turk was released from the Forrest City, Arkansas Federal Prison earlier today Friday (October 12). Turk was an original member of New Orleans rap duo Hot Boys (Juvenile, B.G. and Lil Wayne) from 1996-2001. In 2004, Turk was allegedly involved in a shoot-out with members of the Memphis, Tennessee S.W.A.T. Team, as they raided an apartment complex. Over the years, Turk had proclaimed his innocence. According to AllHipHop, “Turk is currently working on new material to be released, in addition to a book about his life titled “The AutoThugography” of Turk. The rapper is also working on a screenplay about his life title “Reckless,” that will be released shortly.”

Things aren’t looking good for Jeezy this week! Yesterday Thursday (October 11), he released a WACK track called “Get Right” and today he was exposed by BMF members Bleu Davinci and Big Meech for his disloyalty. Jeezy never came to Meech’s defense when he needed financial assistant for lawyer fees. In the song, Jeezy was labeled as a snitch for turning someone into the Feds. Bleu also mentioned that Jeezy handed over his Porsche and Ferrari to the Feds in order to escape an indictment. Does Jeezy’s street credibility and character change in your eyes after he was exposed?

Yesterday Thursday (May 19) former Cash Money rapper B.G. was indicted on federal gun and obstruction charges. The charges are from a 2009 incident, when the New Orleans native and two other men were arrested when police stopped their car. During the search of the vehicle, law enforcement officers found three guns, loaded magazines and extended clips. If that’s not enough, two of the three guns were reported stolen. According to prosecutors, “B.G. then conspired with two others to get a 19-year-old associate named Demounde Pollard to claim ownership of the guns, forcing him to sign a false affidavit that cleared the rapper’s name.” As of press, B.G., who is already a felon, faces up to 10 years in prison if he is convicted.

Another Stupid Investment: Birdman Buys A $8 Million Car

It is being reported that Cash Money CEO Birdman spent $8 million on a Maybach Exelero. In a recent interview, Birdman said, “They got this new Maybach that I want that costs $8 million. I gotta have it.” On April 25th, Birdman took to his Twitter account @Birdman5star and tweeted “8million 0n a whip all red.blievetht.custom made.ymcmb.” Below is a picture of the Maybach Birdman brought:

This is what I call a stupid investment! Why would a person buy a car for $8 million? Do you know how many kids Birdman could have sent to college with that money? Artists wonder why they end-up going broke after their records stop selling.

Was Cash Money/Hot Boys Recording Artist Turk Released From Prison?

Cash Money recording artist Turk, who was a member of the Hot Boys has been released from jail according to a post on AllHipHop.Com. Since 2005, Turk has been serving time in a Tennessee prison for attempted murder in the second degree. Turk allegedly shot a SWAT officer during a 2004 police raid on an apartment complex in Memphis, Tennessee. Over the years Turk always proclaimed his innocence. As of now, this is just a rumor and has no actual facts besides what was post on AHH and what the streets are talking. Below is a news story that I wrote on Turk for XXLMag.Com:

Name: Tab “Turk” Virgil, Jr.
Age: 29
Crime: Attempted murder in the second degree. Turk allegedly shot a SWAT officer during a 2004 police raid on an apartment complex in Memphis, Tennessee. As a result, he was sentenced to 10 years in prison and hit with a $200,000 fine.
Began Sentence: October 2005
Expected Release: 2015


Cred: Best known for being a member of Cash Money Records’ Hot Boys (with Lil Wayne, Juvenile and B.G.), Turk rode a wave of underground success into the mainstream, as the New Orleans quartet exploded onto the scene in 1997. After three successful releases with the group, Turk dropped his 2001 solo debut Young & Thuggin’, which easily went gold.

Pre-Jail Buzz: Although his individual success never equaled that of his fellow Hot Boys, Turk continued to work on his music career. In fact, following his first disc, he dropped four albums in four years—including 2003’s Raw & Uncut, 2004’s Penitentiary Chances, 2005’s Still a Hot Boyand 2006’s Convicted Felons.

Release Therapy: Over the course of the past few years there have been various reports of a Hot Boys reunion, but that can’t truly happen without Turk. Upon his release, the New Orleans rapper could find himself realigned with his Cash Money brothers and give diehard Cash Money fans what they’ve been craving. Not to mention the built-in fan base Lil Wayne has amassed over the years as a Grammy-winning mega star. The block would be hot and so would Turk. Well, as soon as Wayne comes home.

Is Cassidy The Newest Member Of Young Money Cash Money Billionaire YMCMB?

DISCLAIMER: As of now this is nothing but a rumor and has not factual evidence beside what the streets of Philly are talking about.

Anyway, I just got done conversing with one of my friends from North Philly and he confirmed to me that Cassidy is the newest member of Young Money Cash Money Billionaire (YMCMB). According to this rumor, Lil Wayne and Baby tried to sign Cassidy before Lil Wayne went to jail but Cass was still in his contractual agreement with Carmelo Anthony’s Krossover Entertainment. I was told that Cass has fulfilled his obligations with Krossover/E1 and is now signed to YMCMB. An announcement can be made as early as the end of the week.

DJ Khaled Signs Record Deal With Cash Money

Yesterday Thursday (August 19th) Cash Money CEO Birdman signed DJ Khaled to the label. The Miami DJ/Producer now joins the same label that is home to Cool & Dre, Bow Wow, and Lil Wayne.

“Khaled announced on his Twitter page, “Deal is done, We The Best YMCMB, Hard work pays off, I’m on my way to the studio.”-DJ Khaled

If I’m not mistaking, DJ Khaled is signed to Cash Money as a solo artist and his mixtape albums will still come out on E1 (formerly Koch).

Honestly, why is DJ Khaled trying to start a rap career? As a rapper, he sucks. His verse on “All I Do Is Win” remix is horrible. I respect Khaled as a DJ and he is the biggest and one of the best DJ’s of this generation.

Birdman Compares Lil Wayne To Michael Jackson & Speaks On Tha Carter IV

In a recent interview with XXL, Cash Money CEO Brian “Birdman” Williams compared Lil Wayne to Michael Jackson and talked about Wayne’s new album Tha Carter IV.

As successful as the label has been in Wayne’s absence, you gotta be very optimistic for when he comes home.

Can you image when Wayne comes out? He been gone, he ain’t get to see this shit, he only been hearing it. When Wayne comes home he lifts everybody’s spirits, he lifts everybody’s value, he lifts the brand, he lifts everything. Wayne is gonna be the biggest artist in music, not just in hip-hop; in music. It’s some Michael Jackson shit right here goin’ on right before our eyes.

That’s a wild comparison. What can we expect from Tha Carter IV? You know that’s the one everybody is waiting on.

He’s a beast; he went back to that raw rappin’. That nigga still be impressin’ me with his music. I say that to say that I be around him a lot so the shit he do and say shouldn’t be as impressive to me. I’m one of his biggest fans, I be geeked out on him. I watch him work, he’s just cold. It’s some magical shit to watch the young blood do what he do.

Don Bleek speaking…Birdman I respect your grind and respect how you started Cash Money back in 1991 out of the projects and ran the company as an indie label until Universal gave you a $30 million distribution deal back in 1998.

I admit that Cash Money is the hottest crew in the game right now and are one of the few crews that’s actually selling platinum albums but I can’t allowed Birdman to make a stupid comparing by comparing Lil Wayne to Michael Jackson. That’s just not going to happen. There is only one MJ and will NEVER be another. The impact that MJ left behind is something that will NEVER be done again and no other person  in music will ever be as big as MJ or be able accomplish just 10% of what he accomplished. MJ is a worldwide international super star that changed people lives all around the world and Lil Wayne is not that. Lil Wayne will NEVER be able to perform in some of the places that MJ performed at.
