Mo’ goodness from the SXSW days. I played myself and went to the Big Boi show instead that night. I heard Free tore it down. Say it with me: I lost.
“First look at what’s coming from Free and Jake’s album “The Stimulus Package” dropping on Rhymesayers this summer.”
I was Music Editor at The Source back when The Firm mania took over hip-hop. Them damn meetings with Dave Mays and his “buddy” Commissioner Steve Stoute. Having to write a painful Sure Shot single of “Firm Biz.” The behind the scenes drama of the infamous split cover with Jay-Z when Dame and them making a lil house call. Ha! Too many stories.
Yeah, the final result from this rap supergroup didn’t live up to the tremendous hype that was created but I can now fondly look back on that time on my life and acknowledge this shit was pretty fun. Watch this and pretend you were part of it.

For everyone else, forward your shitty tracks to Joe Budden. He hearts bad production.
The eternal laughingstock of rap continues to play himself at last night’s MTV Australia Awards. Why does this guy get invited to shit?
