About 2 years ago I remember having a 2 hour debate with Phonte about how it might still be worthwhile to work with a record label. He wasn’t completely refuting the points I was making but he also said that he needed to see if he could do this project without one. Applaud that man.

While filming the new video Successful they break down the creative for it.

Looks like Drake learned his lesson from that Best I Ever Had video.

HILARIOUS

B.o.B. + The Renegade Album

August 20, 2009  |  Behind the Scenes, Comedy, Hip Hop  |  1 Comment

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

Jay-Z/Rihanna/Kanye “Run This Town”

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 ; )
