50 Cent Talks LP Leak & Beanie vs. Jay-Z

50-cent-clown

Last night, Curtis made a surprise phone call to the Gomez Brothers on Shade 45. He mentions that BISD has been pushed up to November 16th and isn’t too concerned about the leak. He also weighs in on the Jay and Beanie debacle and understands Bean’s frustration.

    when is 50 gonna get shawn carters balls out of his mouth? this i want to know.

  • dumb dumb

    Kris, the ignorance in your statement is befuddling. Lets see how it goes down

    interviewer: What about Beans and Jay Z

    Curtis: speaks on it

    The interviewer knows just like everyone knows that curtis doesn’t bite his tongue. He has a few select words he uses to stay on message i.e. actual, space, harsh realities, aggressive content ect… but to say he’s on Jay Z balls is your love affair with Jew Z.

  • http://thisis50 blain m

    fif the dude!! interviews are always worth the listen

  • http://myspace/marko4aoc Marko-V twitter@markomania

  • AtlanticC

    50: “Jay hasnt competed since he lost to Nas”. haha.

    and how the fuck has he got jay balls in his mouth?

    anyway Before I Self Destruct in stores nov 16 even the haters are praising it. no lie.

    peace!

    I love 50′s mentality because he really wants to be King lol. He says Jay never competes with anyone but isn’t your album competition? What do rap battles solve? Nothing these days anyway. When you go against people beneath you, you bring them to your level. That’s from the Art of War. People don’t remember Jay took 50 on tour with him when 50 was hot at the start of his career. Didn’t Jay help 50 with his Reebok deal too? Remember this when you’re the top guy in any sport, every beneath you is trying to break your neck. They say 50 takes care of Banks and Yayo, but let’s be real aren’t they just his hypemen? It’s the same thing Jay does with Bleek. I’m sure Beans doesn’t want to be a hype man. He’d want to perform his songs on all of Jay’s tours. Banks and Yayo have dropped like one album each on G-Unit Records. A true artist would want to put out more records than that. And when Beans got out of jail didn’t Jay set Beans up with the opportunity by letting him put out an album? Didn’t Beans put out that record with Jay’s then foe, R Kelly as the lead single pretty much killing that buzz. Wasn’t Jay on that album? How is this disloyalty because you keep fucking up your own. Rap is only the strong survive. Why is it every rapper can’t do an interview without talking about Jay Z? It’s just like the NBA, no player can do an interview without talking about Kobe or MJ. The best is what they all aspire to be. Wayne dropped no ceilings and he used two of Jay’s beats. You have to beat the best to be the best. By any means necessary it seems. When you’re on top, it’s you against every one else including your teammates. There is only one MVP in the league. Every one is an opponent.

  • dumb dumb

    BJ,

    A wall of text signifying nothing. When he says compete I think its obvious he’s talking about battling on the mic period. No Jay Z didn’t get him no deal with Reebok, Reebok sought him out and no Jay didn’t take him on tour the sponsors wanted 50 and paid him handsomely for his appearance. Just like Birdman said, Jay isn’t the best rapper or mc, their are a thousand dudes out that can spit much better than Jay Z.

    What qualifies him as the best? because you like him? subjective opinion doesn’t qualify as fact, moreover a majority opinion doesn’t qualify as fact. I think he’s a good rapper, but he bends over backwards for Jews and white people and he bends over his black bretheren with no vaseline.

  • kingill89

    50 is the most enetertaining rapper like i dont even have to read the headline if it is a 50 cent interview im listening to that shit becuz he always say some shit that i never paid attention to like Ja Rule did sound horrible in that song and that 1250 well 625 a piece aint shit with the hotel fees

    Call him whatever but this nigga is entertaining the shit he be saying be hella funny

  • Atron

    yo very true bout the Kobe thing homie

  • mjj

    Yo niggas just got to understand that 50 cent is the biggest and baddest mc period….

    1) No one and I mean no one have sold more records than he has since 2003….He Has sold more gutter street music than anyone in rap history…

    2) 50 cent is the only rapper in the world who gets love across the globe….His only comparison for sales and the people love is his mentor

    3) No rapper have better interviews hands down..No one …he can say what he wants because he know these pussy ass rappers wont do nothing

    4) No one have ever started a group who ever artist sold million of records and have had hit records across the board…Yayo, buck, game, Banks..all millionaires …now one is a junkie and one is a queer..you figure it out

    5) His niggas stay paid…They wilkl always stay paid..because 50 cent will stay paid…

  • mjj

    Sidebar- Before I Self Destruct will be the best album of 2009…..You would be a delusional hater to think otherwise

  • HOV’ STAN

    I thought this clown said he could care less about Jay and Kanye..Curtis you really a whore !!

  • paychexx

    50 follows his own book….i will be makin the purchase

    he got the 48 laws of power and the art of war mastered.

    i mean beans is right, 50 goes hard for his crew other than wu tang nobody else does that, triple c’s dont count….

  • http://RR BJ

    Dumb dumb is a true 50 fan, I respect that. You should play Baby by Me really loud all day long. BISD will be a good album but Rae still has the best album of the year.

  • VerseCutta

    50 is right,especially when he says how jay does his business,jay just care about him,like a true devil does. so yea,technically the devil way is the best business way.
    but coming from the street,you would think jay has some code of honor for his ppl or something.
    jay out for dolo, dont expect him to ever push one of his artist hard.

    any real dude,gotta respect 50 for what he does, like beans said, yayo and banks is richer than most of the rappers out. this dude was flying to PA everymonth to see his uncle locked up,
    jay couldnt visit beans once,how dirty is that,damn, not 1 time? you too good to visit him ONCE?
    thats crazy,how can anyone respect jay as a man for that. but i guess thats why jay crossing over,now he dont have show any honor,he just a regular snake in the business world now.

  • BK

    50 is KING !!!!!!!!

  • http://rapradar WOW!

    50 is letting the internet gas his as up!!!!! You 50 stans better tell that man the truth….FLOP!!!!!!!

  • K.S

    50 has seletive memory is it me or was he meant 2 retire because he LOST 2 KANYE!!!!

  • dumb dumb

    Not a 50 fan just a fan of the facts BJ, when you spout off bull shit you should be called on it. Before Rapradar deleted the 50 leak thread, I was on record in stating I heard it and thought it was a dud. I’m allergic to bull shit so BJ please stay away my allergies are high

  • http://thisis50 blain m

    k.s its you….. 50 sold more then kanye WORLDWIDE…

  • mjj

    retire for what ..he drop 2 classic mixtapes…he is the biggest rapper worldwide…and bisd and the movie and the jmj turntables dvd is going to be the best package any rapper have every gave his fans….

    BISD is a sure classic

  • Yeah

    mjj get 50′s dick out your mouth. Neither of his mixtapes were classics, nor were they even two of the years best. BISD is not a sure classic, 50 does decent but the production was pretty average, and its not even top 5 this year. 50 is not the only rapper who gets love across the world, Kanye is very popular overseas, Jay-Z is too, and didn’t Game have a tour in Africa? From the trailer that was released BISD the movie is probably gonna be garbage, just like 50′s other movie. 50 fans are as bad as Wayne fans, 50 has had a couple really good tapes, and a good album; but lets be honest, he’s not a very good rapper, and the only reasons he’s gonna be remembered are cause he sold a ton of albums and his antics, not because of his skill

  • Consignment

    I feel where 50 comin’ from, but this interview is hella biased and should be listed as an advertisement, because that’s what it is.

    Rick Ross identity theft shit is hilarious!!!

  • mothafucking jerome

    50 the hardest rappers in the game, dick riding gomez show

  • Yardie_ute

    Fifty should focus on his career and leave that of Half a billionaires.
    I heard BISD and i was not impressed to the say the least.
    50 hasn’t matured and I have, So my mature ears cannot take that gangsta bullshit anymore especially when it’s no longer authentic to the rapper.
    And I am 22
    I’m in a empire state of mind right now and I not even from NY. I’m inspired man,
    the motivation for me, is them telling me what I coudn’t be.
    A lot of real music go over afro-american heads cos ya’ll on some dumb shit.
    Tupac has a whole bunch of classic songs that will live on forever, “keep your head up, Dear momma, Brenda’s just a little girl, Changes, and the list goes on and on. When you think of Jay you got fucking, Can’t knock the hustle, can I live, Feeling it, dead presidents, Hard knock life, You must love me, Empire state of mind and the list goes on.
    When you think of 50 you got fucking in da club and candy shop lol Dudes GTFOH.
    Sure he getting money but what the fuck that got to do with you,
    All i care about is the music man, the music.

    50 has plenty of classics. And i didn’t include his soon to be classics on his new record. So of course pac has more classics he had 6 full albums, one was a double album. Not saying 50 is better than pac by any means, but 50 does have his fair share of classics.

    LMAO, yow I haven’t laughed so hard all day. This is the funniest thing I ever heard in rap history. Lol

    Teejay You are second dumbest blogger I have ever read, How old are you,
    9, 10,12, 13, 14 Your moms need to monitor your computer usage, you on a site talking with people who be listening rap 4eva, and mentioning them song as classics, candy shop dude LMAO, In da club,

    ask someone what’s the definition of a rap classic.
    LOL, teejay you a funny dude, is either you very young or very suburban white,

  • cease

    i co sign BJ…dumb dumb you sound like your name when you ask questions like what makes Jay the best. Jay has proved himself time and again in business, in music, in battles and so on. He’s the best alive. im a fan of 50 minus his bullshit and his antics. when it boils down to it i respect the music and thats about it. i dont have to worry about jay wearing wigs in skits and talking about other rappers’ buzz in every other interview. i was in highschool when reasonable doubt dropped, and as ive matured ive watched jay’s growth as an MC as well. Ive watched his subject matter evolve, and his message become more pristine. He’s the truth and Im glad that I can count on Jay to release records still because the state of hip hop is so so sad. There’s not much more to say to dudes. BJ summed it up perfectly. I used to be a 50 fan , and if he can come with some heat w/ BISD then let the music speak for itself, but otherwise its gimmicks and bullshit. Its weird how people are scared to grow up, dudes like staying stuck on stupid. Whatever

  • teejay

    I have never seen someone say so many words yet say so little. It would almost be impressive if it weren’t so sad. Especially since you had your feelings hurt so much by a 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14 year old to write a four paragraph response.

    Now to respond to what little you have said. The only thing you have said about my post is that you disagree with candy shop being a classic. And while i’ll give you its not a good song, it had very significant commercial success and when listing big 50 cent songs, you can’t leave it off the list.

    I would respond more if you actually said more other than making random insults because you got your feelings hurt that someone disagreed with you on the internet/I can barely understand what you typed because you type like a 11 year old girl. Who’s the 9, 10,12, 13, 14 year old again?

  • dumb dumb

    Some people on this site like this 22 year old don’t understand the word subjective. Your classics don’t equal his classics its a matter of opinion. I’m probably twice your age and seen them all a classic is only a classic too you, it doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks. You’re 22 and talking about classics, the jokes on you, you have to be told what a classic is, because you too young to have lived through the genre. Just another case of a young kid with revisionist history. Lets see in 99 you were 12, in 2004 you were what? 17 the info was spoon feed to you by some journalist with a bias and we know they have them. Since the internet has exposed a lot of the bloggers as agenda driven groupies.

    BJ

    Your basketball analogy is an apples to oranges comparison, becuase of this one simple fact, Kobe and MJ competed whether or not they were the best they still had to put up or shut up. They didn’t rely on the opinion of others to tell them they are great, the proved it to their peers night in and night out.

  • dumb dumb

    Cease, he’s not the best too me at all his music is elementary as the rest of them, their is nothing special about his rap style. He is a good rapper among other good rappers their is no pecking order for me.

    I like songs from all of them but a hierarchy doesn’t fit into my paradigm, and I don’t buy into the bravado and the marketing schemes of artist and their lap dogs bloggers and friendly journalist who are more fans than objective critics.

  • ayoooooooo

    why does this website have jays balls in their mouth?

  • Yardie_ute

    Ok Dumb Dumb, So I guess if You and Teejay wanna say Soulja boy’s “Turn ma swag on” is a classic, then who am I who have been listening to rap since i can remember to say, ya’ll are wrong it’s subjective anyway and its also based on commercial success.
    GTFOH,
    50 cent has no classics, None of the songs teejay mentioned can be considered a classic.

    If you almost twice my age and you think 50 is a better MC than Jay, then you like 50 you haven’t matured at all.
    You a dumb old fuck

  • HOV’ STAN

    @ayoooooooooooo
    if this so and you hate jay z so much why you here for in the first place you punk motherfucker

  • dumb dumb

    Ad Hominem attacks shows that you are easily controlled. I don’t rate rappers see my earlier post, it doesn’t fit into my paradigm, that’s media marketing driven bs. I like songs, 50 has made great songs, Jay has made great songs. You ever heard of Bob Dylan? he’s not a great singer but he makes great songs, is he considered great because he can’t out sing anyone in the traditional since of let’s say Sam Cooke or Luther Vandross. His content is different and offers me something different that I like as well.

    Another thing I don’t get, what is this argument about maturing in music? I’m a grown man with a degree and a healthy income. I’m not some young kid trying to find his way in the world. I like the Incredibles movie as well as scarface. I don’t let anyone pick and chose for me. Right now I’m listening to Andrea Bocelli “Viaggio Italiano” and I’ll follow that up with some Led. My music taste doesn’t have to mature for the simple fact i like what I like, not what you think I should like.

  • teejay

    Now yardie has just moved into straight ignorance. No classics? Not liking 50 is one thing, but to deny In Da Club as a classic is just wrong. That song brought back gangsta rap to the forefront, and was the biggest single of 2003. Just because you don’t like an artist doesn’t mean you can deny their impact. I don’t like the Beatles but to deny their impact on modern music is just ignorant.

    And there you go assuming things again, i think soulja boy is garbage. Really you must be more autistic than gucci mane, how the fuck does liking 50 cent mean you like soulja boy?

    Yardie, you’re a moron. All you can do is throw insults without backing up what you say in the least.

  • Nathaniel

    jay didnt say he “gave” beans all that stuff. he was just saying “look at the resources and the opportunities he had, and the buzz/popularity. he was in position…and look what he did with it. that’s my fault? nah….”

    i don’t agree with that “visiting him in prison” argument. nigga thats what family is for, to stick by you no matter how much your dumb ass blows opportunities. and at some point, family gotta get off that “i’ma support u no matter what” and change into “i’ma support you as long as you’re doing productive, positive things…but i don’t support bullshit”

    lastly, u can’t compare banks and yayo to beans. them niggas are like 50′s assistants. he pays them like employees and they call him “boss”. jay doesn’t have that kind of relationship with niggas. he forces you to take your own success into your hands. if you can’t cut it…well…you can’t cut it. find a new hustle.

  • Bucky Love

    Jay-Z is obviously bigger than hip-hop
    he’s in a different space

    There Are Only 4 Hip-Hop Heavyweights And 3 Actually Rap meaning on the forbes anually
    JAY-Z
    50
    DIDDY

    So If Anyone Can Identify with hov its def 50 but hes always had a love hate relationship with hov stemming from how to rob all the way to the freeway deal for free at last.

    However you have to understand when you’re in a certain place you just dont fuck with people anymore. Ever since hov has been hanging with the lyors and chris martins (Not DJ PREMIER) and acting jewish with his money and screaming “Rich niggas black bar mitzvahs mazel tov its a celebration bitches La Heim”

    he doesnt socialize with “hood niggas” like beanie hell hove doesnt even fuck with bleek like that anymore

    50 did the same thing with bang em smurf

    is say that to say this you cant get mad at the dude for evolving
    but we have seen him sever ties with

    Foxy
    Sauce Money
    Ty-Ty
    Jaz-O

    P.S. THE Most Financially Successful Artist Over Seas This Year Was Akon

  • dumb dumb

    Bucky Love, I know you mean well, but your bigger than hip hop was part of a magazine article and it has taken a life of its own. This is what I mean by media driven bs. A periodical chooses a controversial title and it gets repeated as if it is fact, which it is not. Right now Jay is having his run as he changes up his image. Was Michael bigger than “pop” was Elvis bigger than “rock” no they were not and no daily, weekly or periodical tried to shove that down your throat to enforce your physce. Pop was in Michaels’ DNA, Rock was in Elives’ DNA eventhough they were considered larger than life and both were astronomically larger than Jay Z, easy to say in another stratosphere.

    Jay is the rapper that everyone is loving this year, live long enough and you will know exactly what Ice Cube said and it has been true ever since.

  • Bucky Love

    @ Dumb Dumb

    To Me Jay-Z Is Bigger Than Hip-Hop
    Not To Jock XXL But My Own Opinion, I am Not A Media Slave Nor Do I Follow Trends
    What I Mean Is Hip-Hop Is Still A “Young Genre” Meaning It’s Not Respected As Other Genres Maybe and Something You Can Grow Out Of Hip-Hop Fans Dont Take Care Of The Artists
    So For Jay-Z To Surpass Elivs an Artist Who Took Advantage Of Black Music And Be On The Heels Of The Beatles Is Saying Something Thus “Bigger Than Hip-Hop”

    Think About It Jay-Z Still Can Go Gold In A Week

    But In Rock and Other Genres You Have Madonna, Rolling Stones, U2, Bon Jovi, Bruce Springsteen

    Those Are Musicians WIth Huge Followings More Than 20 Years Deep And Still Can Sell A Million Copies And Sell Out Stadiums And Get Live Nation

    On The Other Hand LL COOL J a legend has struggled to go gold with his last LP’s
    Hip-Hop Doesnt Take Care Of Their Artists And Its Sad You’ll Never Hear A Current Rock Group a la a Linkin Park calling Areosmith Old And Forcing Them Out The Game And It Falls On The
    Heavily but Hip-hop Fans Are Younger And Younger and Don’t Know What Lyricism Is So We Have Inflation of All These Rappers With No Identify and Are Sucessful off a single rather than a body of work or career

    So Dumb Dumb Sorry To Dissapoint

    “But Dont Analyze Mine I Spend Too Much Time”

    The Situation With Jay-Z and Rap Is A Reflection Of The African-American Mentality
    Blacks generally dont like to see other blacks succeed its been that way since slavery where you have fair skin african-americans work in better conditions than those of a darker complexion its all fact so i say that to say this Jay-Z is Bigger Than Hip-Hop what other 40 Year Old Rapper You Know Is On A Major Label And Still Has A Strong Following

  • dumb dumb

    That statement was given too you and you drew your conclusion based on your like for the artist. No he is not bigger than hip hop. If his album wasn’t well received and he didn’t hitch his wagon to RiRi, Kanye and Alicia Keys which was very smart, no one would care. American Gangster came out just a short few years ago and no one was saying he’s bigger than hip hop why is that? the album was luke warm and it was heavily marketed with budweiser, but no one was feeling it, and it died on the vine. Right now the New York song is being driven by Alicia, her hook is more memorable than anything Jay is saying on record the same goes for run this town RiRi gives that record life. Jays rhymes are forgettable on those records.

    Like Ice Cube said their will be a new “N” next year.

    This is the most over used statement ever, you don’t know what that man knows, he could be just well read. Intellect requires more than just speaking on a topic or topics. Intellect requires you to formulate an opinion, open up for scrutiny and it to with stand that scrutiny. Speaking on a topic is nothing doesn’t require intellect, just require you or someone close too you to have researched the topic. Let Jay come up with a theory and make that theory fact, that’s intellect. I can speak all day on a variety of topics because I’m well read. With being well read, I can analytically as well as critically think, doesn’t make me smart or an intellect just makes me aware.

    First Off American Gangster Wasn’t Heavily Marketed By Bud

    And My Conclusion Is Based On Fact It Seems You’re The One Who’s Conclusion Is Based On Bias And Theres Nothing Wrong But When You Challenge My Opinion With Nothing To Back It Up I Engage In Healthy Discussion I Love Hip-Hop And Keep In Mind You’re Talking About Singles Which Are Designed To Appeal To The MassesFrom The Suburbs of MTV to BET And The Single Debuted On MTV and Is Having A Strong Push Because Of The Yanks In The World Series

  • Bucky Love

    OBVIOUSLY NO ONE HERE AS HEARD OB4CL 2

  • please let’s speak on the real issues

    WHy can’t we address the real issue here.??????Why couldn’t beanie stay out of jail ???? his whole interview is about “I was on parole” , “I violated my parole” “I was in jail” my trial” How long does someone goes the wrong direction so many time and people ask him to cool off and he doesn’t listen.

    Beanie is one of the most talented rappers ever but has never evolved out of his self destructive ways.

    At what point does beanie holds himselp responsible for his failures ????????

    Grow the fuck up and get off JAy-Z’s dick . I am really tired of hearing about people who cant’ take care of themselves since jay went on his own.

    Beanie has been in and out of jail while jay-Z was cultivating his place in history. Beanie has mental issues that no one seems to want to address.

    Beanie is not managable and is very unpredictable so how could he expect jay to babysit him and be accountable for his bail set up ??

    How do you violate parole by gettting into a shout out while your album is about to come out ?
    what happens to all the work put in for the release of the record ???

    Promotion,marketing,radio,distribution, advertising space all of those mention and many other things that aren’t are what it takes to push a record but when the artist that you are working so hard to push is going to jail, those things that were payed for become a loss.

    Beanie is an artist that you gamble on based on his raw talent, he is amazing at getting his emotions off the pages but at what cost ?

    Beanie became too expensive and unpredictable that it wasn’t worth talking to anymore.,

    Beanie is like a kid who needs to fall in order to understand why he was told to tie his laces so many time.
    well, he did fall and now let’s see if he can get up and tie up his laces and instead of venting out , he should apologize for not listenning and focusing his anger on himself and make great work that can speak on his growth not his regression after Roc-A-Fella.

    GET HELP BEANIE, still much love for you.

  • dumb dumb

    Kingdom Come, was he bigger than hip hop? American Gangster, was he bigger than hip hop? I venture the answer would be a resounding no. A periodical gave you a phrase and you ran with it. Jay is a good rapper, but some of you are just taking this ish overboard with your infatuation with this cat. He is a rapper with a hit song or songs. Was little Wayne bigger than hip hop? his beckon lit up the sky, just like Kayne before him and a host of other rappers. Jay falls in line with a litany of rappers before him nothing more nothing less, you and others in your ilk need to understand this.

    Do I listen to rap or skim through it? since your mind is made up, I’m going to appease you and say I skim through it, and can really do without it.

  • Bucky Love

    DUDE LET IT GO!

    JAY-Z IS BIGGER THAN HIP-HOP!!!

    OBVIOUSLY IF A GUY HAS CONSISTENT #1 LP’S SINCE 1998 HE’S DOING SOMETHING RIGHT WHICH ALSO INCLUDED AMERICAN GANGSTER AND KC SO HE’S BEEN A MAJOR PLAYER SINCE THEN

    I GET WHAT YA SAYING AS FAR AS MEDIA AND SHIT GOES
    NO ONE SAID HIP-HOP IS DEAD UNTIL NAS SAID IT
    NO ONE SAID T.I. WAS KING OF THE SOUTH UNTIL T.I. SAID IT
    NO ONE SAID WAYNE WAS THE BEST RAPPER ALIVE UNTIL WAYNE SAID IT

    SO YES PEOPLE ARE SPOON FED WHAT THE MEDIA TELLS THEM BUT IN THIS CASE ITS TRUE AND YOU DON’T LIKE IT

    I GET WHAT YA SAYING BUT LOOK AT THE FACTS
    JAY-Z IS BIGGER THAN HIP-HOP
    HE’S BEEN ABLE TO PUT HIMSELF IN A POSITION BASED ON STATUS AND FINANCIALLY THAT NO ON ELSE CAN AND HE HAS FREEDOMS AND PRIVILEGES THAT REACH BEYOND MUSIC TOO ME BIGGER THAN RAP MEANS YOU ARE MAKING MONEY HAVE INFLUENCE AND ARE SUCCESSFUL AT THINGS THAT ARE BEYOND RAP TO THE POINT WHERE YOU DON’T NEED RAP ANYMORE BECAUSE “TA DA” YOU ARE BIGGER THAN RAP

    IM NOT TALKING ABOUT LYRICAL ABILITY
    OR POPULARITY LIKE YOU ARE AND MTV DOES FOR THAT LIST BUT JAY-Z IS BIGGER THAN RAP HE CAN NEVER MAKE ANOTHER HIP-HOP DOLLAR AND BE SUCCESSFUL

    WILL SMITH IS BIGGER THAN RAP CORRECT JAY IS DOING THE SAME THING JUST NOT ACTING

    ICE CUBE IS DAMN NEAR ON HIS WAY TO BEING BIGGER THAN RAP
    SO ITS DEAD DUMB DUMB LET IT GO!!

    DO YOU REALIZE YOU DIGRESSED FROM MY ORIGINAL STATEMENT PERTAINING TO BEANS AND HOV BECAUSE OF SOME WEIRD PERSONAL VENDETTA YOU HAVE

  • Bucky Love

    I AGREE BEANIE NEED TO DO FOR SELF BUT WITH BEANIE ITS DEEPER THAN RAP

    HE AND HOV PROBABLY HAD A RELATIONSHIP ON A LEVEL WE KNEW NOTHING ABOUT
    AND IT HURTS WHEN YOU GET DECEIVED BY SOMEBODY YOU LOVE
    IF WHAT BEANS SAYS IS TRUE ABOUT HOV HAVING FEDS AND COPS DOING SWEEPS AT POWERHOUSE AND SHOTS ON BP3 TAKEN THAT NEEDS TO BE ADDRESSED HOV TOOK THE EASY WAY OUT BY SAYING WHAT HE SAID I WISH THE INTERVIEWER WOULD HAVE FOCUSED ON THE GRIMEY AND DIDN’T ASK SUCH A GENERIC QUESTION

    BUT REMEMBER THE LA LA LA VIDEO WHERE HE SAID HE’LL NEVER MAKE THE NEWS AGAIN AND WE CAN SEE BEANIE SAY “IMA SHOOT YA”

    DONT GET REAL LIFE AND RAP CONFUSED

    Bigger than HIP HOP as told by Buck Love

    Status, Finances, Position, privileges that reach beyond music, you are making money and have influence beyond rap.

    These things can’t run parallel one has to be bigger than the other. Hip hop artist that fall within this category are many be it flashes in the pan or ambers after the fire is suppressed.

    Vanilla Ica has amassed a fortune based on rap and was able to achieve a nice nest egg outside of rap. This also is very relatable to Hammer, Nelly and oh shit, oh shit how can I forget Master P and Birdman, position, status finances privileges outside of hip hop. Since these things can’t be because of or run parallel with hip hop, they are greater than.

    Beans and Hov, what people are failing to remember from the horses mouth, it wasn’t about money, its about love and family.

    Judge: Jay are you willing to be responsible for Beans if we let him out on probation, can you guarantee his employment and his whereabouts

    Beans: All shit Jay is my Dog I’m out this bitch, time to make some money and be with my family

    Jay: NO

    Beans: Thank you Jay……..WHAT ooh shit dude Jay, Jay, ….Jay

    Judge: well god damn lock this nigga up, next case on the docket

    Beans laid down his prima facia case vs Jay Z and all you guys can focus on is the money aspect. The reason he brings 50 up, is because the street run on a different code of ethics, If I’m eating my crew is eating, we family. He thought Jay was cut from that cloth and apparently he isn’t.

    “Another thing I don’t get, what is this argument about maturing in music? I’m a grown man with a degree and a healthy income. I’m not some young kid trying to find his way in the world. I like the Incredibles movie as well as scarface.”

    @Dumb Dumb, I am 22 and I have a Honorary University Degree, and about to start a Masters.
    You sound like a person who all his life was suffering from an inferiority complex and upon achieving your degree you now feel the need to show you are educated. It’s a Hip Hop blog site. No one is saying you need to act unintelligent but your speech is coming across as a bit ostentatious.
    You need to relax, they mere fact we are blogging means at the least, we are literate.
    You still a dumb old FUCK LMAO

  • dumb dumb

    Good for you Yardie_ute, I wish you the best. Take every advantage of your education, it will serve you well, if you use it to the fullest and remember what you study oft times isn’t what your occupation will be, so take those lessons and apply them anyway this is the mark of a true intellectual.

    WHY DO PEOPLE SAY: “JAY IS BIGGER THAN HIP HOP”…WHEN HE WILL BE PERFORMING HIP HOP MUSIC FOR AT LEAST 10 MORE YEARS…LIVE NATION DEAL! HE WILL BE DOING HIP HOP UNTIL HE IS ABOUT 50!!!!! SAYING HE IS BIGGER THAN HIP HOP MAKES IT SEEM THAT HE IS BEYOND THE ART FORM…WHICH HE IS NOT! JAY IS AN EMPLOYEE OF LIVE NATION STRCTLY BECAUSE HE IS A HIP HOP PERFORMER…REGARDLESS OF WHAT HIS BUSINESS VENTURES ARE…HE IS KNOWN FOR HIP HOP FIRST!!!!

  • http://rapradar stop playing

    STRICTLY^^^

  • http://rapradar QUIT

    STOP PLACING JAY-Z ABOVE HIP HOP…BECAUSE TRUTH BE TOLD HIS EMPLOYERS LIVE NATION…SIGNED HIM TO A DEAL THAT BONDS HIM TO HIP HOP FOR MANY YEARS TO COME…ACCORDING TO THE MEDIA!!!! IF IT WAS NOT FOR HIP HOP HIS ASS WOULD HAVE NEVER SOLD OUT MADISON SQUARE GARDEN! SO HOW CAN YOU BE BIGGER THAN HIP HOP WHEN THAT IS WHAT MAKES YOU FAMOUS? THAT IS LIKE SAYING MICHEAL JACKSON IS BIGGER THAN POP MUSIC/CULTURE…WHEN HIS MUSIC WAS THE REASON HIS FANS LOVED HIM…NOT BECAUSE HE MADE MILLIONS, OR HE SOLD OUT STADIUMS ACROSS THE WORLD!!! EVEN THOUGH JAY COULD NOT BE COMPARED TO MJ…IT IS JUST STUPID TO SAY JAY-Z IS BIGGER THAN THE HOP HIP!!!

    JAY-Z IS NOT THE ONLY RAPPER WHO SOLD OUT MSG (KANYE WEST, 50 CENT, EMINEM..SHIT EVEN TAYLOR SWIFT)
    JAY-Z IS NOT THE ONLY RAPPER WHO HAS BEEN ON OPRAH (KANYE, COMMON, P. DIDDY, WILL SMITH, LUDACRIS)
    JAY-Z IS NOT THE ONLY RAPPER ON BILL MAHER (MOS DEF)
    JAY-Z IS NOT THE ONLY RAPPER WHO HAS MADE MILLIONS..AND IF YOU BELIEVE THE MEDIA DRIVEN HYPE THAT JAY HAS 600 MILLION DOLLARS…ASK THE JEWS WHO EMPLOY HIM TO BE THE FACE OF THEIR COMPANIES/CORPORATION (40/40 CLUB, THE NETS ECT.) SO THAT THEY MAKE BILLIONS OFF HIS NAME AND JAY RECIEVES A CHECK AND PUBLICITY (MARLETING DOLLARS TO PROMOTE HIS MUSIC) FOR MARKETING THEIR PRODUCTS AND VENUES…
    JAY CAN’T PERSUADE SAID NBA STAR TO DO NOTHING HE DOES NOT WANT TO DO…ALL THOUGH SAID NBA STAR WILL BE A FREE AGENT HE IS STILL APART OF THE NBA FRANCHISE AND THEY PAY HIM NOT JAY…SO HE WILL GO TO WHAT EVER NBA TEAM IS WILLING TO PAY HIM TOP DOLLAR…AND I CAN BET YOU IT WON’T BE THE NETS!!!

    “This is what I mean by media driven bs. A periodical chooses a controversial title and it gets repeated as if it is fact, which it is not.”
    i TOOK THIS FROM YOUR POST…BECAUSE HOW DO YOU KNOW TFOR A FACT HAT …JAY-Z HAS 600 MILLION DOLLARS…ARE YOU JUST REPEATING WHAT THE MEDIA (FORBES LIST) REVEALS ABOUT JAY…PUBLICITY/HYPE!!!!

  • E money

  • Chi-town

    G Unit Radio isthe ultimate group of yes men. That shit got to get irritating. He can take a shit on air and they will act like it was the coolest thing to happen in hip hop. Get the fuck outta here!

  • Chi-town

    They talk about Fifty do this and that for his artist. You gotta remember Banks and Yayo was not just people he signed them was his guys so of course they going to be straight and don’t discount they work them boys moved units. Yayo earned them sprinklers that come out the ground.

    $1200 is like this big joke ask Hot Rod how much he got paid to perform at a 50 concert.

  • Hisho

    ok ok ok,,, everyone is writing a whole fucking essay about who is better, jayz fans says 50 cent is shit, 50 fans says jay z is shit … and some are arguing about if “Jay z is bigger than hip-hop!!! which doesnt really make sense to me because hiphop is just a gender of music and jayz is a human!!
    you can argue about hiphop is bigger than rock or jayz is bigger than eminem but not jay z bigger than hiphop so pls shut this stupid argument..

    secondly, Jay Z sold millions of albums, he has a lot of fans , hits, classics, and so He is BIG and in fact is bigger than all of us here that commenting and saying shit about him
    and so is 50 Cen , hate it or love it his BIGGER than most of the rapper out there.. and yes he got classics!!! MR Yardie-Ute…. hate it or love it, 21 questions, how to rob, so disrespectful (BISD), hustlers ambitions, just to name few..

    please stop hating ,, if you don’t like an artist its ok,, but why go crazy about it ,, just listen to the music you like and do worry about this bullshit, because believe it or not , no one is better than the other,, even solja boy is better than jayz and eminem in some people’s eyes, so you should just respect it.

  • YaBoiTone

    TY REG AND HHIG. NOW WE ALL KNOW THAT U 2 ARE THE COOLEST HETEROSEXUAL MALES ON THE PLANET, BECAUSE U CAME TO A BLOG (A PLACE WHERE PEOPLE CONVERSE AND SHARE THEIR OPINIONS ON PEOPLE, PLACES, AND ISSUES) AND YOU MADE IT REAL CLEAR THAT PEOPLE WHO HAVE STRONG OPINIONS ABOUT OTHER MEN ARE HOMOSEXUAL??? LMFAO. IF YOU DIDNT CATCH ALL OF MY SARCASM DUMASSES ILL EXPLAIN IT FOR YOU:
    You see, a therapists would more than likely question YOUR sexuality, because for some reason you made a connection between men discussing men in a COMPLETELY non homosexual way and being gay? If everyone was talking about abs, dicks, and chest hair then you calling everyone gay might make sense. But everyone was talking about these men’s music careers. This means you HHIG and your girlfriend REG who felt the need to cosign with u (just another follower) must have dick and buttholes on the brain. Noone said anything even remotely gay, but leave it to someone who is either incredibly insecure OR GAY to start making gay comments. lol. its ok to come out of the closet now you two. we wont judge.
