D-Nice’s True Hip-Hop Stories: Special Ed


Pay attention B.Dot, this is the man who was Magnificent before Ricky Ross. Here’s one of BK’s finest breakin’ down his first classic “I Got It Made,” speakin’ on what the game’s been missing and explains how the Officer paid homage.

“He [Ross] brought me down to Miami to do a cameo in the video. He also hit me up to get on the remix… I’m lookin’ forward to that. I think that’s gonna show people how relevant I am. And that I’m not that far from any of these current hot quote unquote rappers that are in rotation right now.”

Ok slow down, pa.

Seasoned rookie, Crooked I talked to Sway about the lack of support from hip-hop’s ol’ timers.
“We just fed up. It’s like You guys are the O.G.s of the industry, you laid down the foundation. Now, we’re out here stranded…People throwig up W’s, but are they really from the West Coast? Do they really represent the West Coast? Do they really have the West Coast’s best interest at mind.”
Throwback Video: Ja Rule & Friends “New York”


All this “Mafia Music (Remix)” talk got me reminscing about the time when all 50 Cent’s rivals got together at Dave and Ray’s traveling circus aka The 2004 Source Awards. Ja performs “New York” with Fat Joe and Jada in between scene-stealing cameos by eye candy models, Murda Ma$e, Tego Calderon and at least 75 niggas on stage. Total kaos. 

RR Exclusive: Rick Ross “Valley Of Death”

LL Cool J Still Won’t Accept Failure

LL Cool J’s E! True Hollywood Story airs tmw tax day at 10 pm EST and on it, The Real Uncle L still points the finger at L.A. Reid’s house for his last CD being a coaster.

The record just really

honestly, you know, didn’t have that support that I wish it would have

had. [I] can’t blame anyone. It was my last record, and I guess for

whatever reason, whether it was quality or business, you know, the

company just decided that they were going to write it off and not

really give it that shot.”

They gave it a shot. They put it out. It sucked. It didn’t hit. They pulled the plug. Life after Jay-Z? Same result Todd. Cue up *Man in The Mirror* and listen closely. This is for your own concern.

Steve Rifkind Says Asher Roth Album Will Change Hip-Hop


The man who signed the Wu and Mobb Deep, declares that his new artist Asher Roth’s Asleep In The Bread Aisle will bear the Loud logo and will enter an elite class: The Top 5 Albums That Have Changed Hip-Hop. Whoa! Although he wouldn’t say it in the video, I have good authority that these are Rifkind’s other four picks:

N.W.A Straight Outta Compton

Public Enemy It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back

Wu-Tang Clan Enter The Wu-Tang: 36 Chambers

Eminem The Marshall Mathers LP

Where’s does all this put Deeper Than Rap (which still hasn’t leaked. Ugh!)?

4-20, y’all.
