Sell Your Soul For A Record Deal? Diddy, Mase, Biggie, BAD BOY Ent…

October 7, 2009 8 comments

Mark Curry, author of “Dancing with the Devil: How Puff Burned The Bad Boys Of Hip Hop” exposes the dirty side of the music industry in an interview with Gyant It gets real around the 4:30 mark….

“You gotta look at it like this, A person like Mase that comes to Puff that wants a record deal automatically is willing to do anything that he can do to get that deal. So you have to look at like this, you are willing to sell your soul for that deal. For example, they might say I’m gonna give you a $100 million dollars but before I do that, I want to take a couple pictures with you…with your shirt off…and your pants too. And you’ll be like “$100 million dollars…a shirt and no pants? hmmm, Okay, let’s do it!” So now, here go your $100 million. Now you sitting there with your girl, she got her diamonds and fur on and she look good. All of a sudden you got somebody in the background flashing those pictures at you in an envelope telling you “Come here. We need to talk to you”. You be like “Wow, now you got me by the balls”. When somebody come to you and say “I’m going to expose to your people everything you doing to get this money”, it’ll make you kill yourself”.

WOWZERS!!!! This book must be BONKERS!

Young Gunz New Deal?!

October 6, 2009 Leave a comment

Fans of the Young Gunz can finally exhale.
After a four-year hiatus that saw the Philadelphia duo of Young Chris and Neef deal with whispers of music industry politics, and the 2009 public split of their longtime label home Roc-A-Fella Records from distributor Def Jam, the influential spitters are set to return to the stage in early 2010.
“Paper work is everything, so due to the split up with Def Jam, it’s taken longer for the deal to happen.” Chris explained to VIBE of the group’s time away from the mic after dropping the critically-acclaimed 2004 debut Tough Luv and 2005 follow-up Brothers From Another.
First on the agenda is Chris’ as-yet-untitled solo project, which will also feature his partner Neef and former mentor and Roc Nation founder Jay-Z in an executive role.
“Right now we have a deal on the table and it’s a toss up between Roc Nation and Interscope,” Chris adds. “Wherever I go Jay-Z and Mark Ronson are executive producing it together. So that’s a great balance.”
For Neef, Young Chris’ solo album is a testament to the group’s real kinship.
“A lot of people come in this game and they get put together,” he says. “We came up from nothing to something. That’s really my brother from another. Right after Chris, we are going to get to Tough Luv 2 and give the fans that Young Gunz. We are just giving the people what they want.”

50 Cent Responds To Fabolous Questioning His Intentions With Uniting NY

October 6, 2009 Leave a comment

50 Cent attempted to unify New York Hip Hop this past weekend with a show featuring Dipset, D-Block, Uncle Murda, Cory Gunz, Red Cafe, Wyclef Jean, Maino, Slaughterhouse, Papoose, Kid Cudi, Wale and more on Governer’s Island. The show was a success however Fabolous took to his twitter page earlier today and questioned 50 Cents intentions while blaming him for breaking the unity in New York to begin with.

“Reading what Fab said about me on Twitter was disappointing. I have extended myself to Fab personally to allow him to expand himself as an international Touring Artist. I Thought we were Friends but that’s cool. ”

Law #2: Never put too much trust in Friends, Learn how to use Enemies Be wary of friends—they will betray you more quickly, for they are easily aroused to envy. They also become spoiled and tyrannical. But hire a former enemy and he will be more loyal than a friend, because he has more to prove. In fact, you have more to fear from friends than from enemies. If you have no enemies, find a way to make them.

—50th Law of Power.

Fabolous had this to say about 50 Cent earlier today on twitter.

Its interesting to c 50 Cent unite wit NY artists when he’s 1 of the reasons NY hip hop became so isolated & crumbled..Do u agree NY?? I wonder if this is a law in the 50th law of power book?? I guess it was a good show 4 NY.. But if u asked 50 a few years ago if he ever saw hisself on stage with any of them he woulda said HELL NO! At 50’s peak his grind was unmatched, image was bulletproof, music was ignorantly motivational & catchy, even classic. most never hav that. So dont think im takin shots at 50.. Jus that NY show had me a lil puzzled.. But i love NY so i couldnt knock it if i wanted to. Does Fabolous have a point? Would 50 Cent reach out to NY artist if he was still on top like before? I mean takes price in his new book which makes it obvious every move he makes has a reason behind it.

 50 Cent chose to pick beefs with alot of NY artists during his career and even kicked members off of his squad for doing features with artists he didn’t like. NY Beefs: JaRule, Fat Joe, Nas, Jay-z, Jada Kiss, Styles P…Am I missing anyone here?
