The 18th Letter salutes the hometown but he’s not sleepin’ on Drizzy and the new generation.

“You gotta give it up to Jay. He’s holding New York right now,” Rakim

said. “You have brothers like Fabolous that’s holding New York right

now. Rap is spread out right now. It’s like the NFL last year. A lot of

the teams we thought was going to the Super Bowl last year didn’t make

it. You have young teams that people sleeping on in the playoffs. It’s

the same thing in rap. New brothers is sprouting out. It’s crazy. From

Drake to you name it. I’m a fan of hip-hop as well. I like everybody

who keeps the game on their toes and keep it pushing.”

Bow Wow Defends His Cash Money Decision

Uncle Rush continues to get his Arianna Huffington on, gettin’ Shad Moss to further explain why he parked his Lambo in the Williams brothers’ garage. 

To anyone who’s confused or says I don’t belong in Cash Money…Let me remind you that I’ve been down with Baby, Slim, Wayne and the whole Cash Money family from the beginning. 10 years ago when we really were “Lil” me and Wayne did a song for the Hardball movie soundtrack. Baby was influential in my third album. Last year, Wayne and I spent 2 months together in New Orleans filming Hurricane Season. So please don’t be misinformed and think I’m just jumpin’ on “what’s hot” or trying to ride others success. This has been my extended family for more than a decade.  

Did somebody say Hardball? Joe said no pauses!

Drake Says Bow Wow’s A Ladies Man, He’s An Honest Man

Drizzy addresses the accusations that his bars are strictly for the ladies. 

“I think there’s two types of rapping about women, there’s rapping about fairy-tale stuff …not to take away anything from an MC like this, but you take a rapper like Bow Wow, who is a genuine ladies’ man and all his songs are to make ladies love him and love themselves. And that’s cool. That’s a brand of music that might not always be what’s real, you may not always be telling the truth, but at least someone is gonna feel good about the songs you’re making. With me, when I touch on women — which I don’t feel like I rap about a lot — I feel like I’m just rapping about myself.” 

He also kicks a few bars from a new song he just recorded with Wayne.

“She’s nothin’ like every other dime/ 

When I think of her, couple things that come to mind/

Thoughts like if she end up, my baby mother fine/

Cuz we only use a rubber like every other time.”

Let’s be careful out there ladies.

Big Pun: The Legacy (Second Look)

[vodpod id=ExternalVideo.890854&w=425&h=350&fv=]

Now this quick clip got me a lil amped because it deals with the genesis of Pun’s musical career. Wow, Fat Joe was already six years in the game when he brought Rios in the game. Plus, Raekwon reflects on putting Pun on the “Firewater” track. What you kids know about the Relativity Urban Assault album? Ha!

Mos Def “Auditorium” (Live At The Tabernacle)

Not the best sound quality, but always interesting to see Flaco do his thing. This was from the show a few nights ago in the ATL. As you can see, no Slick Rick, no problem. This is a cool joint off The Ecstatic but still….

“Priority” >>>>
