      i fuck with it tip always gave a great body of worth not to mention tip is my top 3 favorite rappers I was curious prior to listening to it how it would go with skate board p executive producing it. But i like the album still gotta sit with it and go over it more and more. But I like how tip always create projects that doesn’t feel trendy or younger than his age its like he grows with his music.

          Its not hot cuz of him. And ppl know the difference. You cannot trick the ppl. This is why gimmicks leave as quick as they come. He used the hottest nigga n the streets on one single and the hottest girl on the charts on the other. Tip albums have always been conceptual. Authentic. About something. A storyline. All of wm. This time it feels like hes fighting to stay hot through new artists. The songs sound good and about the money i knew would be big first time i heard it. It just doesnt FEEL right. Same thing with jeezy. His album was hard start to finish. Some of his best work u ask me. But before the album dropped, it didnt FEEL like ”jeezy finna drop!!” Mariah too. The album was awesome. But that feeling, that ”mariah album is out!” Feeling wasnt there. Same with wayne so far and thats why his album keep gettin pushed back. Its hard to explain but i know what im tryna say. Like drake. Before his album come out, that ”drake bout to drop on these niggas” feeling is in the air.

      I aint gonna lie. This the rap album of the year. This album was good. Bumped it all day today. TI went back to the older mid 2000’s hip hop with pop choruses there are catchy. And u can tell he put his heart in this album.

      I had a friend offer me to hear it for free they had a link, and I declined. Music is free and all the other people who haven’t caught on to that yet is in denial. If someone purchases it on your behalf, that is your educated fan, that understands if they want more from you they have to give financial support. Then you have the fan that have multiple artist they like and could care less if your hear tomorrow, they will just follow the next big thing. Every now and then they may type when are you coming out with something new just so they can get some more free shit, because that is how they attain all of their music. If y’all think iTunes giving you every download that they get on your behalf, I think not, I believe they can take a hefty amount without anyone ever suspecting a thing. I think the digital age has killed the money making aspect of music, and those who has branched out has the most sense. Again if all anyone has to offer is an ability to cut a record make a song create a hook then you are limitless in this new age. VISIONARIES RUN THE WORLD…. If you still stuck trying to glue the paper to the wall with just water, thinking it will stick one day I know it, the Visionaries is already in the lab create a water base glue, and when they get to the paper, I bet it won’t come off the wall.

        Music is not free. its not free to see performances on tour nor is it free to listen to albums. or it would be legal. what the industry must do is find ways to get paid while ppl think they are listening for free. if you download someones stuff illegally you are not a fan. the art of being a fan is lost and its sad and disgusting. i remember j cole’s first album came out i woke up early like it was the first day of school and i had a fresh outfit to go and get his album. I remember when i was in the 9th grade and has stigmatic dropped, i had like 20 bucks to my name. i chose to buy his cd over taking my girlfriend to the movies. i remember staring at the booklet and reading every credit in it. ppl don’t know that feeling anymore cuz they not fans. the satisfaction of knowing you supported someone is the art of being a fan. But u know what, these days you have people who are supposed to be fans under celebrities instagram pictures giving fashion advice like they’re stylists. they go on youtube and tell the ppl who get signed for singing how to sing like they are vocal coaches. a bunch of know it alls that know nothing at all. people call drake a dickrider when he’s supporting teams and players and showing love, he’s not dickriding, he’s being a fan, aint nothin wrong with being a fan. this fake ass world called the internet leads people to believe we are all equal. we are not. as humans yes we are. but in professions we are not. when i get around jd them I shut the fuck up and play my role. I speak when spoken to, and I don’t blurt out voluntary opinions that i haven’t done enough to have valued. I was at that revolt music conference watching panels with with twinkles in my eye. thinking to myself ”man thats the game on stage giving me advice and dropping gems” Cuz i remember how I bought his first album and rapped the songs on it from start to finish. the art of being a fan. the urban side of the music world is all in competition with one another. ask the people of other genres if music is free. like i said tori kelly aint out here dropping no mix tapes. she is a brand new artist, her music is for sale and she’s been touring building her fan base for the passed two years plus. and thats a brand new artist. ask the people who bought daft punks album if music is free. the urban side of the world better wake the fuck up we are pathetic.

          You’re right, I remember the days when I used to sit and read a cd booklet to see/ read the lyrics, who played what instrument, what sample the artist used, or who sang background vocals. It was an exciting time for music back in those days. I remember when artists had street teams out there promoting music, everything from singles to the albums. They didn’t get paid but because they were so passionate about music and artists they hung posters and handed out flyers for free! Can we get back to those days or are they ancient history???

          When I say it is free, you know what I’m talking about… if anybody want it their is always a way that they can get it. Yes we came from a generation that purchased out music, but would we have if technology presented itself in the form it has today. We all have people we respect in the manner of what they teach us, shit when my father talk I listen. I think he is the smartest man on the planet. And just because a person is not a vocal coach don’t mean they don’t hear something that is not professional to their liking, It’s best to ask why instead of thinking they don’t know what they talking about, they might save you for the next song recorded. In the sense we are not equal on a professional level, says what law was that written in, because they told James Brown that he can’t make beat like that because it was not the professional way, now if she shut up and played a role, he would not be who he is today. That is the problem all these artist there so star stuck coming in the door that they allow everyone else to tell them what type of music to make. If we have more business minds coming to the table for record labels to invest then maybe they can create avenues of evolving when it’s that time in history, instead everybody putting the burden on who their looking up 2, not realizing it takes a team of everybody having a vision for the future, for the future of a company to thrive.

      @jd Actually black music is not selling because of technology. Most people in the hood are quick to download the newest music for free. You can get any song you want for free now. Albums are available before they are released now also, and for free. Most people that have certain websites want hits so bad they will put things out for free to rack up page hits too.
      @d-mac Smartphones is the biggest downfall of black music. The reason why you see the decline in black music sells is because of the increase of smartphones to the inner city poverty stricken areas. Everybody is getting free music now. Sad but true.

    Chief Keef inked a pretty big recording deal with Interscope back in 2012, reportedly worth about $6 million. However, consider that relationship officially over and done, as the label Keef once called home is now the label he just doesn’t like. Taking to Twitter early this morning (October 21), the Chicago rapper revealed that he was dropped from Interscope after just two years.

    He first revealed the news via a screenshot of a text message conversation with a friend, before going on to Tweet his frustrations with the label before the split. “100% of everything goes to me now, Jimmy it was cool splitting it with U But u gave yo spot up!,” wrote the rapper.

    Backed his hit single “I Don’t Like,” Keef signed with Interscope in 2012 and would go on to release his full-length debut Finally Rich. Despite spawning a big time remix for “I Don’t Like,” with Kanye West, Pusha T, Big Sean and Jadakiss, the album failed to spill that momentum onto the charts.

    A source close to Keef confirmed the reports, revealing that the parting was mutual and that the Chicago rapper will explore going independent.

    The comments come as Keef tweeted moments ago that he will still release scheduled projects like Back From the Dead 2 and Bang 3 later this year.

      Keef is a case of straying. Ppl always stray the sound that got them hot i dont understand it for the life of me. If he stuck to the drill music sound the niggas biting him wouldnt exist. He had a chance to be a superstar because not only was the music hot, he had cultural impact. Kids using his slang, acting like him in videos, dressing like him. The whole shaboing. But u cant miss video shoots for singles featuring 50 cent and wiz khalifa. He turned down deals with jeezy 50 kanye and ti and signed with gucci mane. Poor business decisions

          Well they had dropped the details of keef deal and i figured he would get dropped he had to sell 250k in a year to keep his deal or the label had the option to opt out. If kendrick drops this 4th qtr he can do it. If he does he will have rap in a chokehold. Niggas gotta stop giving away free music top to bottom. I read the irv post. Hes right. This shit is bad. Only one way to start selling again is stop giving away free shit. Taylor swift dont give them country fans nothing free. NOTHING. Ariana Grande aint out here droppin mixtapes. Im cool with eps cuz they for sale but this free stuff no. I posted about this same stuff yesterday and coco island said the same thing. Only thing that should be free is the visuals. Where would master p be if he thought it was a good idea to give away that music for free and hope for something in return?

          labels gotta stop dick riding off of the youtube social media hype only to drop the artist as soon as shit doesnt pan out its fucked up for the artist and leaves a statement of once your no longer profitable to me your ass in gone or shelved for dust which is the model for alot of artist at major labels mostly. I dont even listen to chief keef like that but im familiar with his sound and visuals which is drill music and shooting fucking videos in his house or riding round his neighborhood or some other shit. So when he leaves ”rehab” interscope drops fuck rehab song which was so corny and looked like a fucking soulja boy turn my swag on video which I could tell thats interscope idea. Honestly feel major labels are dumb as fuck at times trying to change the core image and sound of the artist. Labels dont want to groom superstars they want to produce acts they can monetize in less than 140 characters.

      I think Ive been saying for 2 years now that albums shouldnt be made no more. I know im no JD or Diddy but maybe yall will listen to me one day. Yall record labels are so far behind and have no idea where yall at anymore. Giving away albums for years while calling them mixtapes then release a album and wonder why people dont wanna buy them. Most albums today have one good song on them. And EVERY rap album sound a like. Trap rap is DONE. That ATL autotune bullshyt is DONE! Rap right now is DONE!

      Create a hot single every quarter. Make people want your music and stop dropping a song every week. Create some kind of demand. But imma let my actions speak louder than my words.

          Dont say the whole world. Cuz i keep my content authentic. I get overlooked because they say it takes more money to break my style of artist than those that u complaining about. Thing is my style of artist makes more money and actually sells the records. What u sayin is true. One song gets hot and everyone copies. And u know why they dont stop copying? Cuz labels keep signing the copiers with the mind set of ”im looking for the next ___”. Im tellin u man i was in a mtg with a anr with universal. He praised my work. Said he respected it the whole 9. Then said BUT ”Do u have anythingg like the migos” it made me sad. I didnt eat that night. Cuz in my mind no i dont have anything like the migos, the migos has something like the migos, im d-mac and i have something like d-mac. We are just in a microwave world all around. Labels dont want the artist that have the talent they can build on and develop. They want the artist who has everything already and all they have to do is put it out. While i care about putting out quality bodies of work 90% of indy artists are trying to hit a homerun with a new single every other week til one pops for em. And i cant think of any of em that popped three years ago off one and are still around. Yet kendrick and cole? Had no followings before the deal dropped bodies of work and are both not having issues selling records. Drake is a diff case hes a hit machine 72 songs on billboard hot 100 hes a created player. But those are the top 3 rappers. All im sayin is facts proof in the pudding.

    its crazy!! 2 artist with big records get dropped from majors this year and aint nobody gone platinum

    In reply to - JD posted an update: Chief Keef inked a pretty big recording deal with Interscope back in 2012, reportedly worth about $6 million. However, consider that relationship officially over and done, as the label Keef once called home is now the label he just doesn’t like. Taking to Twitter early this morning (October 21), the Chicago rapper [...] · View

    Seated by himself on a small couch, Tyga is waiting for his lunch to arrive. The room is eye candy for architects and interior designers: high ceilings, exposed beams and hanging light fixtures contrast antique elements like the rows of Victorian picture frames adorning an entire wall. Then there’s this claw foot tub brought in for him to recreate Tupac Shakur’s iconic almost-nude photo (Pac’s privates are hidden by gold galore).

    Tyga immediately scraps the tub idea. “I just don’t wanna recreate things that have been done,” he says. “Especially something so legendary.”

    A large curtain separates him from two bodyguards perched on stools about six feet away. Tyga’s troop for the day includes his publicist, assistant, nanny, barber, and 2-year-old son King. For a man with an entourage, T-Raww is much more of a recluse than one would assume—or maybe he’s just overdue for some alone time.

    There’s been a lot of emphasis on crew love in Tyga’s space over the years. It was 2007 when Lil Wayne recruited the Compton native to Young Money Entertainment. That was two years before Nicki Minaj and Drake blossomed into Tunechi’s big money brands. In five years, Drake has sold over 25 million albums and singles combined, and topped the Beatles this year for the most entries on the Billboard Hot 100. Then there’s Nicki, the feisty Queens spitter who can go bar for bar with the boys. Minaj signed with Young Money in 2009 and already has more Hot 100 hits than Michael Jackson (Though MJ’s output wasn’t nearly as bloated as today’s artists). She’s the first woman to simultaneously fill the No. 1 and No. 2 slots on the iTunes singles charts, both of her albums debuted at No. 1 and her “Starships” single had a record 21-week run atop Billboard.

    ”[Kanye] was like, ‘If you guys want me to help you produce your albums, and co-executive produce it, I’m here. I just want to help everybody.’”

    By comparison, Tyga has yet to hit his sales stride, despite “Rack City’s” quadruple platinum certification. His third album, Hotel California, released last year, was a commercial flop. But the separation goes beyond stats

    YMCMB couldn’t be more unified. Rich Homie Quan, and Young Thug are the new class of Rich Gang affiliates, while Nicki and Drake remain wholly committed to Wayne’s army. At Hot 97’s Summer Jam this year, Drake squashed his rumored micro-beef with Minaj by hitting the stage with her and Wayne. Tyga’s absence from the love fest, as well as the Drake vs. Lil Wayne tour (Y.G., was added to the tour for West Coast dates) was a tip-off that Tyga wasn’t top-of-mind at home base.

    Now, as he readies The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty, Tyga is demanding attention from his team. Everything about the album—whose title is a nod to Tyga’s obsession with ancient Egyptians—is authentic to who he is currently. This album wasn’t made for the La Marina and Toxic set. As Tyga vaguely explains, it’s more “vibe music.” He’s anxious to get the project out, even if that means publicly criticizing the label. The day after VIBE’S cover shoot, he threatened to leak the LP via Twitter if Young Money didn’t give him a release date.

    YMCMB president Mack Maine shot back through his own tweet, warning Tyga to take ownership of his shortcomings. Minaj then unfollowed him. Days later, he released “40 Mill,” one of the many Kanye West-produced cuts from his new album. Yeah, that Mr. West. He might now have the attention he was looking for.
