Well well well. We finally did it. Or did we. I guess it all depends on which Uncle you ask? First lets jump into it like this. When people say shit like “Illegal Aliens”, they speak of what they don’t know. They’re ignorant to the news channel they watch. Or when they say ” Them mexicans need to go back home”, have they once thought about the fact that them same mexicans built Texas. Or the fact that technically America is home considering the fact this is stolen land.
Trae the truth and Rob G have crafted a classic. BET, Yes I’m calling you out, Should do a special on this. Or will you sit there and continue to call Micheal Jordans new shoe strings News. You know dam well there is a plot to put us against each other. Media can prevent this, but do you? Lets just watch how they handle this years racial festivities.
Who will be the next Dj to take the game to the next level? I’m sayin who is that one? Lets say this young lady or man will have quick hands and can scratch. Lets say they have exclusive music. Lets say they never play the same set over and over. Lets say they know at least 4 new artist that we haven’t heard that are jammin. I don’t know who it is but I do have some ideas. Who do you think is next? Let me know so we can put them on Blast. Until then here is your competition fresh on your heels.
Ah yes the dance craze continues across the nation. We are in the middle of a lot of different wars. Cultural wars. Wars in the hood where brothers don’t understand they have been set up to feel the way they feel so that they may take it out on each other. Sad…. Dancing just gives these kids ways of expressing themselves. Helps relieve a lot of the neighborhood stress. Like just imagine the west coast without the arts. Imagine the bay without Krumpin. Memphis without buckin. New Orleans without bounce. Miami without bass. Just imagine no dancing. Pretty dam boring. Well Lil Duval has stepped up to the plate to make sure we don’t forget the foundation of this dancing.
Ok one thing that has never stopped is the good music. Can’t even hear that other sh*t they sayin. I can pull out a boat load of records that you can pretend are ok. But sooner or later you’ll be like mane that one right therrr…
MTV Names B.O.B. as one of the MC’s to watch in 2009. He’s in great company. Like I said before this year will be one of the biggest years for Hip Hop. Diversity is the word of they year.
The Underground is now rising to the top. Thanks to online platforms such as Sohh.com and all the others. Underground events and artist are slamming the Internet. Frustrating the living shit out of establish artist and music related industries. And the greatest part is watching the mainstays act like the new comers don’t some how belong, when actually it’s the quite opposite if such a stance is taken.
This should be national news but it's being swept under the rug as much and as fast as possible. Is it because we are about to have a black president.
Man ain't no slowing down the midnight train. Looks like 09 will be the biggest year hip hop has ever had. Look who's about to shut everyone up.
Mentors are the key element in buisness and life period. Sometimes we get so ahead of ourselves we forget what help got us where we stand. Being on the journey having the freedom to fly and grow sometimes blurs our vision til total amnesia. Luckily Bow wow doesn't have this problem. He's turning out to be a wise young man and I think one day we will just look back and say hey. Hip Hop raised that guy.
This is a great laid back cut. Really it serves a dual purpose. This is great highway music. But also doubles as a jump off tune just in case you and your spoogy want to play a game of you got served. All they needed in this joint was a Cameo from the cast of House Party.
Loyalty to what?
With everybody talking loyalty so much lately, lets get it cracking. I simply ask? Loyalty to what. I always find it funny when people start talking loyalty in the industry. Like they want you to sign this contract that Massa gave them to have and feel the need to have you sing the same song. Everybody does this to make it. She did it! He did it! It’s just a club.See how big they are now! My thoughts, naga please! And then when you find out what’s really going on and your perspective is different and lets just say you utter this some Bullshit! Then ahhhhhhhhhhh you dun done it nah. You not Loyal!
Ahhhhh the holidays. Everybody puts in that extra effort. Well if you follow from the last post...
The female rapper has been told over and over that their music doesn’t sell. Now I have to keep it 100 on this one. I think that’s Bullshit. I know there are countless amounts of stats that back it up. But the one stat that isn’t on the table is perspective. You see I think the perspective of how the industry tries to market female rappers is the wackest sh*t ever.
With everybody waving around their rags and all, the independent male in America has always maintained a stride to break the surface of some sort of weird approval ( for lack of better words). And when you see T.I. and Swizz do this club banger as a beautiful tribute to these folk that (fill in you thoughts of Louis here).
Imagine if the media reported the things the industry does in the community more than just during the holidays. A lot of our industry peers do more for the hood than every other organization or social group. It seems when they do it never gets reported til the holiday season. Here's a few things going on.
Monica, Scarface and Trae. Find out what all this means.
Ok lets get to it. Scarface is one of the dopest MCs to touch the planet. First off let me just say all of the music channels out there, all of them, if you don't have some type of special being done on this latest Scarface project don't get mad when in the next few years new networks take your place in the consumers mind. This will happen. You see if the label up that money then all of a sudden we get specials and sh*t on other rappers. So the next time I see some big special on a rapper and you start saying how great he is and how much he has influenced everybody and blah blah blah bullsh*t. If you ain't doing some type of special programing set up for the new Face project, you wack point blank. Money run this game but at some point you got to be smart enough to do both and win.
The buzz is building on the net and in the streets. Yesterday I watched a group of about 7 DJs argue about who would win if 50 Cent and Lil' Wayne went toe to toe for about 2hrs. And at the end of the day we came up with this; hip-hop would win.
The Bayou Classic went down this weekend. And I'm sad to say we got our ass kicked 29 -14. Grambling beat Southern and I'm sure E-40 is somewhere smiling right now. The Bayou Classic is probably one of the biggest if not the biggest game in Black College football. Everybody says that but this ones been rolling for 35yrs strong. To say it's a grudge match is a major understatement. Here are the highlights to catch you up.
Wow, so where do I start. Well the Dirty Awards went down this year and this being the Internet you all know the story by now. And I know you looking for the scoop, but let's just say I see, speak, and hear no evil. First our prayers go out to both the Grand Hustle family and the D4L family. I get down with all these dudes and just like the Mike Jones/Trae situation there is no winner in a situation like this. I really wish they could have just meet up in an alley and got it on so that it could be finished. The Dirty Awards is a pretty well planned event and this year was no different. I guess I'll take this time out also to warn future award shows of what they can do to prevent this in the future.
Ugghhhh ( in E-40's voice) Let's kick it off like this. No need to state the obvious at this point. (In DJ Khaled's voice) "We the Best!"
Could it be that Soulja Boy is one of those kids who just speaks from the gut. I'll follow up on this especially about the slavery comment because it could be a direct thought based America's education system. After all Christopher Columbus discovered America right? And no that's no excuse that's just up for consideration. Merely another perspective. What's yours? Honestly you have not one young cousin in your family that acts and says sh*t just like him. Somebody email somebody and remind them.
Now if you don't know Chingo Bling, you will soon enough. Chingo is a marketing giant. He also sells boots, tamales, bobblehead dolls, and anything else that can fit the name Chingo Bling on. Well the Bay Area Buddy, Haji Springer, has been building an unstoppable buzz. Let the Party begin!
Chamillitary mayne, brah you ain't gotta stop. You just got to put it in they face what it is that made you you. That funk we call screw. The part of the culture of hip-hop, that hip-hop don't want to accept because of what a few crash dummy's say.......I know you not gonna play that song....... shiiiiiiiiie.
Mayne ya really just ain't ready. Gangsta Pat is one of Memphis' many reality rap pioneers. This was '91 with Atlantic.
Can it be that Bill O'Reilly got so upset at the new Ludacris song that he lashed out at one of our favorite hip-hop websites.
Slim Thug is pushing forward with Koch. Back by Blockular Demand is still doing its thing in the streets. And now Slim releases a new single for all you street runners. It's been 3 yrs since Slim released an album. But this might prove to be perfect timing. If anything Slim now knows what works and what doesn't. Before I get to his new single, I gotta run this "Living Without." This song definitley should have been a single with video. (in your deep voice) This should be played at high volume.
Mixtapes are still the bloodline of rap music. The DJ killed the radio star, well almost.
7 a.m.: DJ Unk
Today is the first day of your life. Well that's how the TV is going to make you feel. I really can't type what I want to today because it is what it is.
Hurt is the only word that comes to mind when I heard about Shakir. To everyone that's just a fan of this site and not in the industry Shakir was huge because he was one of us. I speak for any black male you see working in this industry that is not an entertainer and is more on the business end. We all saw our self in Shake. He was a very focused individual.
What up. Just a note and reminder. When I put a video up here or a song. I'm not saying I was first to post it or anything like that. Take it as I'm posting it because I want you to vibe to it. Allow me to DJ in your life a little. I won't steer you wrong. Just wanna make that clear because for some reason I got an email from someone who seems to think, that I think I'm the first to post certain videos when you are so far from what I'm thinking when I post music num nutz. You're thinking to much, just do your job and press play. Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight Now!
We're back with part 2 of the Greg "Gate$" Davenport exclusive interview with the real Freeway Ricky Ross and the OG drops some knowledge on what were some of the things that influenced him into a life of crime, his feelings on the current state of hip-hop and what he thinks about the rapper Rick Ross being a correctional officer.
Keeping it light on the hump day. Ace Hood comes through with the "Ride" remix with a mob of cameos. DJ Khaled is playing no games at this point. Looks like the well oiled machine known as Florida just ain't gonna stop. And that's great. Keeps everybody else on there toes. The cash flow is official and certified. From Slip-N-Slide to We the Best Music Group, TJ Chapman, DJ Demp, Trick, Redd Eyezz, Blood Raw, Hatian Fresh, mane hold up. I'll pick back up next week, just let it be known the Gunshine state is ready.
Both North and South Carolina have big movements on the way in '09, with key players like Charlamagne the God, DJ Chuck T and DJ B-Lord just to name a few. Their music has been overlooked for so long. They really represent a lot of states not only in the South but all over the country. Places like Arkansas, Alabama, Nebraska, Kentucky, Oklahoma.
What up wit ya? Some of you see what I'm attempting to do with this opportunity SOHH has given me and I appreciate the emails. You really understand where I'm going with all this. I may not do the typical Jerry Springer style blogger, but I do have confidence that I may be on the verge of being a part of the balance in giving you the true depth of the Southern hip hop voice. I say that lightly because without each and every other Southern publication my voice ain't shit. In the words of Derrty Ent. We All We Got (damn i gotta get back to the lou).
Time for them toons mayne. "Welcome to the South" was done by Jay over in Tucson, AZ. Check out his interpretation of the south. It's actually pretty close to how things should be concerning conflicts and really everyone not just the South. We all need those people to step in when it's obvious that we just misunderstand so much trying to be the number one negro. That's a trait we picked up along the way from Uncle Tom, and I can't wait to see it leave. Evolution will win as the new American black male has to see that you have nothing without your people. You are a hollow trophy for whoever cuts your checks at the time when you put yourself before everyone as a business. That's another topic.
Once again it's on! Greg "Gate$" Davenport is live and in the flesh and this time I've got a trill exclusive for you.

Dallas, Texas is a freight train coming. You can't see it, but you will feel it, I promise. While H-Town laid a good foundation, the D has a Swang all they own. Check out this list of songs from some of Dallas' best.
Memphis Hip-Hop has been the back bone for the South for a long time. They just never really get there credit. Take my word for it all that will change in 2009. Ya boy L'Daialogue Dicaprio summed up a lot of their history in this short song and video.

Whassapnin. Yes hold the S for two seconds on that. I'ma stick to the music today. Seems Plies is ready to capitalize on that growing fan base of his. Album #3 is on the way. This is one hell of a move by the good folks over at Slip-N-Slide Records. Ted Lucas, the CEO of the label, recently revealed to MTV that Plies' third solo album is titled Da Realest and will be hitting shelves in December.

Lil' KeKe is a Down South Don. 2008 and he's still has a flow that's classic. Here's a listen at the first single, "Money in the City," feat. Slim Thug, Paul Wall and up-and-coming R&B singer Tre Vidure on the hook. Take a listen and tell me what you think?
If Trey Songz is not the MVP of hood anthems right now I don't know who is. This time he helps Ace Hood slide his way into the hearts of the ladies with "Ride." This is a perfect joint for Monday or Saturday morning, just easy listening. Congrats to Khaled. Congrats to Flo Rida. New artist are exactly what we need more of. The bigger the variety the more it will become about the music. Now we just need that breakout song from ya broham and we might just have a new Florida Gator. Today will be real light but I'll make it up to you this week. Let's just say I had a rough weekend.

For those of you in the thick of football season you know the feeling oh to well. But for the rest of you guys here's a clip of the world famous Southern University's "Human Jukebox".
Keeping it light today. Mr. Scarface gives you a straight forward approach to politics. You gotta love the way he just puts it out there. I can't help but laugh at all the pretend democrats that have been telling you to go vote but never said who to vote for in the past because of the hidden agenda. This year they all side with Obama because they..... well....let me not got that far. Being a blogger is dangerous as hell.
For those of you who have been keeping up with the Dirty Blog you know how I posted the 40 Glocc piece before and was bothered by the whole dam thing. And really its because I would hate to see someone get hurt over not really understanding what they have gotten themselves into.

Now maybe its me, but I think we have reached a point in hip-hop where we have this great big variety of music to choose from. All we gotta do is organize it.
David Banner's got one of this year's sleeper albums. The Greatest Story Ever Told is making a steady move in the streets. But just in case you been missin' what he's been saying here's some fresh music from the Mississippi Vet. This reminds me of "Grey Skies". Now what you know bout that? Then you don't know David Banner.
Although most of you got what I was saying in my middle finger piece, a few decided to put words in my mouth in their email replies. Instead of answering you one by one. Let me address the hall in this fashion. In fact I can prove what we really think courtesy of Rhapsody. Killer Mike, DJ Drama, and Devin the Dude all comment on special hip-hop moments in there life in regards to hip-hop pioneers Cypress Hill, De La Soul, and Slick Rick.
Chamillionare and Trae put it down in the city after Ike. I told someone the other day rappers will fill a void left by athletes and other prominent figures from the hood. Cham and Trae are proving that.
What up people, hope all is well on that side of the screen. We all talk about balance, well here he is. Virginia continues to give us flawless music through one of their best kept secrets Skillz.
This past Saturday morning at about 11am everybody in the hood was making them last minute adjustments to their rides. Football season is here and with that comes the festivities. What would those football games be without the unofficial car shows. Here are a couple of tunes to get you in the mood.
Man let me explain something to all you motherf*ckers. A lot of you are making all these stupid ass comments because of your lack of knowledge on culture. We don't owe you sh*t! HIP-HOP is for everyone around the world period. We all are creating it. You created a title and can have that sh*t back at any time. You don't own music. Them samples you were scratchin with came from southern drummers, check the credits and labels. I don't even want to get started on that sh*t. Well, actually I do.
