Once again Jay-Z takes bragging to another level over a Timbaland track.
Spotted at Onsmash.com
Great story behind this- courtesy of Shake from 2dopeboyz.com:
I’m sure it’s well known, but I’m a pretty big fan of Mr. Bobby Ray. And I think it’s safe to say that 94% of the dopeboyz/girlz that frequent the site are as well. It’s also well known that I despise Atlantic Records. So with that said, I put together a collection of (tagless) joints that have leaked since the time I very first heard dude in hopes that it can spread around the internets and hopefully wake those dinosaurs up. Word is (via Wendy Day & Amir’s little convo awhile back) they really like B.o.B but are trying to force him into a 360 deal. And if he doesn’t conform, they are gonna shelve him. I mean, imagine if this was actually his debut album? Sheeiiiit… I vote we call/email/run-up-on Atlantic and tell them to stop fucking around.
I can just imagine how the conversation went…”that whole Best I Ever Had thing got the streets wondering…oh I know! Let’s do a record called Killers with a real street dude like Nipsey!”
No shots but I get it…this track bangs anyway. Download/Stream here
Anthony Mandler is a beast on direction and took a page from Das Efx’s “They Want Efx” – although I would’ve liked to see something different for the last verse by Kanye- this will do ; )
Somewhere along the line people started using the term freestyle very loosely and the next thing you know rappers are reading rhymes off of their blackberry and it’s still considered a freestyle.
That was definitely not the case when Mickey Factz made an appearance on DJ Semtex’s show over in the UK recently. This is what a real MC looks like…
Last Saturday he gave this set of the craziest ol’ school hip hop at the Do-Over party in LA. Make some room around wherever your watching this cause it will probably induce involuntary dancing.
This is an ALBUM- not an assortment of attempts to get you to buy a ringtone.
Shawn’s actually decided to give the album away for free cause he wants everyone to be able to hear it. Not wanting hardships or financial problems to hinder anybody from experiencing music that could ultimately inspire them.
Download/Stream HERE and check out this video he did for the intro
I’ve been riding with these dudes since there videos were starring crows!http://myspacetv.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=vids.individual&videoid=61637724
