          • SMH

            The low level dealer who still lives in the projects got something to say huh? I would be more concerned with getting out of marcy projects than worry about what random screenname got to say

          • PREMERE

            You should be concerned with why you on my dick hardbody like that…….

          • SMH

            Low level as fuck. You beneath me, son

          • PREMERE

            You think so? Your whole life is low level. What i said struck a nerve yo ass aint go no life but this blog when you on that free wifi. Keep it pushing clown.

          • SMH

            Ok. U resorted to ur mama jokes. U done lol but yo, i can see why u stuck in the projects. Nigga was tryna make just $50 instead of aiming high for some real business. Step ur game up and maybe one day u can get out the projects lmfaoooo

          • PREMERE

            Yeah yeah yeah, you see the thing with you online clowns is that your views and preception are very distorted. Things arent always what they seem. And since your on my dick so much maybe you should meet up with me so i can teach you a few things about life. Im done but you were done the minute you thought you could get at me.

          • SMH

            Oh so u a lie. Understood

          • PREMERE

            No need for me to lie, especially to some online clown.

          • SMH

            “Things arent always what they seem”

          • PREMERE

      • PREMERE

        Meanwhile they sitting there hating……

    Cool interview. Sounds like Baby not trying to jerk nobody he just bad with money. The strange thing on his part is why wouldn’t he just let Wayne put the album out and move on. He gave him 20 productive years. Im curious what Slim’s role is in the whole situation. Baby could just be the fall guy because he is the face of the label.

  • ilexx

    Amazing episode.

    Wayne is such a major Hip Hop/Pop star that sometimes you don’t realize how much mystic there actually is about his process or the YM teams process, so this was a great episode. Cortez spoke so openly and you guys got some good info out of him.

    And that formula Cortez is talking about with regards to releasing core(urban)/up tempo(pop) records. I been told my friends they was doing that shit so strategically and it was guaranteed to work. Like Elliot mentioned, like A side and B side records. It’s great to know Gee Roberson gave Cortez that game and he been using it, that makes sense.

    • Brian B.Dot™ Miller

      Salute. I just hope the music isn’t stale by the time we hear it

      • el jim chapo guzman
