Uh Oh! "NY Daily News" Sh*ts on Ja - Who Faces 3 Years, Kweli and Mos Reunite at Nokia Theatre

Nerd with attitude

I don't f*cks with the shady-a*s NY Daily News, but this guy Michael Daly is one funny dude. I was surprised at how much he actually knew about Ja Rule, Supreme, 50 Cent, Irv Gotti, and how they all bumped heads. There's no way he could've done his research the night before and put together such an amusing article. This sh*t right here is a must-read:

"So many people snitched on the seemingly all-powerful McGriff that the feds beat him. He was convicted of conspiracy to murder and sentenced to life in prison. His permanent departure from the scene left Ja Rule facing the dilemma common to rappers who act like street thugs but are in truth just nerds with attitude.

"These candy rappers become easy targets for genuine street guys, who see high comedy when a mama's boy from Queens named Jeff Atkins makes himself into Ja Rule and sings a song such as "Gun Talk."


"...Some years back, 50 Cent made a video wearing a gold chain that Ja Rule is said to have relinquished with extreme reluctance. Ja Rule was then robbed of another chain by some tough kids from the Forties Houses projects in Queens. Ja Rule is said to have turned to McGriff for help.


"Supreme got him his chain back," a knowledgeable law enforcement official noted.'


"Maybe this is the same chain Ja Rule can be seen wearing in the YouTube video [making of "Uh Oh"] along with that "Supreme Team" T-shirt. The problem for him is every street thug in New York knows McGriff is behind bars....Uh-oh."

I almost think this dude had a ghostwriter. There is no way he wrote this article.

In addition to that, the Pigs mocked Ja, telling reporters "He was a good little mama's boy, and now he sings about guns and busting caps. Now [that] Supreme's away, I guess he needs a gun."

And in case you missed it, Ja is facing a mandatory 3 1/2 years for violating that gun possession law I spoke of yesterday. What a way to make a comeback.

Join Kweli, Mos, Dead Prez, Saigon, and other surprise guests Sunday, August 26th in Times Square's Nokia Theatre for the Black August Hip-hop Project.

It seems as if things are finally looking up for the kid Saigon after he got with Chris Lighty over at Violator. He's everywhere now.

Cop the tickets asap. The address is 1515 Broadway at 44th Street on the West Side.

YO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

go listen

The NY Daily News writer would only have had to do a minimum amount of research to write that story. He may have covered Kenneth McGriff's trial. I don't think its impossible for a decent journalist to make that connection. You might be used to those bubble gum white journalists who do stories on black entertainers and call rappers R&B artists and R&B artists rappers. I saw one of those on Page Six yesterday where they referred to Ray J as a rapper. I guess they just look at a picture and try to determine what the artist does rather than take the time to simply Google them.

or he could just follow hip hop or the news, its not like he said anything exclusive, ya know. sometimes i dont know what reckless be talking about.

As usual today's topic sucks. Everyone knows Ja Rule is fake even white people who don't really follow hip hop. It is funny that the cops was making fun of him - Damn Ja!!!


Since we have been given these wack ass blog topics I been spending time on allhiphop.com. Did anyone check out the new Ask (th wonder section - some of the questions are funny. I going to ask him, why the fuck they let corny ass Big Pooh in the group? I know I'm not the only person who brought little brother's music just for the beats and Phon-tigga verses

Exactly, Reckless is the one who doesn't do research. How you gon have the nerve to say an actual journalist doesn't do research?

@ Eddy G.,

I think Ja is one of the finalists 4 that prestigious title along with

Lil' Wayne-Oh I 4got, U can't say nothing bad about buddy, he's the hottest thing since shit on a stick

Jim Jones

The Game

Pussy, I mean Puffy

SHOUTS 2 THE REAL
STANS GET THE BOZACK

I don't want to be mistaken for someone who hopes for the downfall of Ja Rule. I actually like his new song and wish him nothing but success. I feel sorry for these guys that are practically forced to be something they are not by the record labels. Then the guys who actually were hoppers on the corner that get careers sound like idiots in interviews because it only takes a 3rd grade education to sell drugs on the lowly street level.

THERE'S ALOT OF PAID 50 CENT SUPPORTERS ON HERE!! THE ONLY THUGS AND GANGSTAS ARE THE WHITE MEN! REMEMBER THAT!

Not possible. Just because dude harmonizes on hook dosent make him fake. His boys already certified his street shit on that beef series. Gettin extorted and playin hollywood gangsta is whatja did. Also, to me theres a big ass difference between songs like amusment park and candy shop where dude is talkin about pussy and the love songs Ja was singin on homie. Ja had a video that looked like Grease mayne, like Grease aight. The only two songs that 50 did that are even REMOTELY close to Ja are 21 questions and Best Friend, which to me is about jumpoffs (friends with benifits) 50s catalouge of mixtapes and albums is extensive, and those are the only two songs I can name, correct me if Im wrong, so that stereotype is blown way out of proportion(sp?) to me. I mean, lets be real here, compare the shit Ja was doin with ashanti to 50 and it isnt even close, number of songs, OR content wise. Thats the biggest difference to me, that if you're harmonizing like PimpC or talkin about fuckin mad hoes n shit, Im down, if you're doin sappy R&B sing songy love songs, thats a bit different, kna mean?

which in turn causes their fans 2 act like idiots b/c they think it's cool 2 be stupid & talk down on people who actually work 4 a living.

I wanted it to be true and it was!!! LMFAO! Bro, he spit that real shit.. I was LMFAO, Damn duke! Hes sayin names and everything. Pimp C + 50 = Best interviews evar! lol!

less ja, more talib/mos...

Dam! That Daily news article seems like it was written by 50! Micheal Daily basically called JAH an "Official" WANGSTA! lol In one excerpt Micheal Daily called JaH a momma's boy and a candy rapper/nerd with attitude. That got his chain snatched by 50! Dam hip hop is the sht! pure white bread writer all up in this sht.Just to sell newspapers!

People always forget to add Tupac to that fake rapper list. Tupac was an artsy fartsy type. A truly gifted poet. He was not a criminal. Yet he got with Suge and abrakadabra! he as a rough neck with tattoos. The industry be pimping the ghetto image to the fullest. Those powerful white men love feeling a little street. Probably be smashing hoochies and errthing.

@ EReal,

I liked 21 Questions, that was it, either way, "Gangsta" rappers should leave the sappy R&B joints 2 the saps who sing R&B.

R&B ain't been shit since Jodeci broke up
