September 3, 2009

Though Rick Ross applauds Eminem for his verse on Forever with Drake, Kanye and Lil Wayne, Ross still wants to battle Em. Check out the clip below

When Rick Ross thinks about Eminem making a Mariah Carey dis record instead of responding to his jabs toward Slim Shady, the Miami Bawse just cracks up laughing. “You know what my thoughts are, man. We just laugh at it,” Ross told us recently in New Mexico.

“He’s smart,” Ross said about Eminem not addressing him and avoiding a rhyme battle. “That’s what I’m waiting for. That’ll be a gift — a great Christmas present for me. But y’all know what I think. I think everybody knows. It’s all ‘hood, man. Shout-out to Mariah Carey, she needs to reach out to me. We could eradicate some things.”

The vibe is not 100 percent antagonistic, however, when it comes to Ross’ thoughts on Marshall Mathers — he actually has some praise for Em’s latest verse.

“On a better note, I wanna shout out Eminem. I heard a record he did with Lil Wayne, Drake and Kanye West. Eminem, you’re smart. I understand … we all know what you doing now. You’re moving on to better things. Like I said, he might wanna do a record with me. We here. Triple Cs.”

Ross, the Carol City Cartel, Masspike Miles and the rest of his musical family are putting out their mixtape Maybach Music Part III: White Sand real soon. The title signifies that they started in the streets and are now indulging in the finer things in life. “We still on that hustle,” Ross said. “I’m hungry like a new artist. It’s a double disc of all new music as well as a DVD. It’s taking the street mixtapes to the next level.”

Triple Cs are filming the video for their first single, “Go,” with the Birdman featured in the production. The album Custom Cars and Cycles is due to drop this fall.

Just for the record, Eminem is top ever. Ross would get smashed to pieces, truthfully.


Jay Rock x Lil Wayne x K-Dot – “Colors”

September 3, 2009

For day 28 of his takeover, Jay Rock recruits Lil Wayne and K-Dot on the track Colors. Personally, I think that Wayne had the best verse on the track, but you should be the judge of that. Link below folks.

Video: Lil Wayne Explains Why He Stopped Writing Raps

September 3, 2009

In the video below, Cortez Bryant, Lil Wayne’s manager, and Wayne explain why he stopped writing down raps and how he has evolved as an MC from the process. Wayne stated that he has become a better MC and that he is forced to rap about real life issues.

In the rapper’s upcoming “Behind the Music” special, set to air September 10 on VH1, he talks openly about scrapping his rhyme books during a furious recording session, where he transformed from Cash Money’s young sidekick to the label’s heavyweight superstar.

“The only way I won’t be able to rap anything I’ve written again is to record everything I’ve ever written before once,” he explained of what led to his now notebook-free style.

The result was a 35-minute freestyle called “10,000 Bars,” on which Wayne’s disjointed rhymes, parts of various working songs, become a cathartic release and set the tone for his memorable mixtape run and a series of Carter albums.

“That changed Wayne as an artist,” his longtime manager, Cortez Bryant, said.

Sidebar: Still don’t know about Jay Sean? You must be sleeping then. Jay Sean is Lil Wayne’s latest artist to sign to Cash Money Records. Though I am not too sure if you know who he is exactly, I do know that you have heard his latest single, Down, featuring Lil Wayne, which by the way, is a Top 5 single on iTunes.

Thoughts?

Good looks to Brent over at ICED for the video.

Amerie x Lil Wayne – “Heard Em All” (Remix)

August 30, 2009

The martian, Lil Wayne, adds a verse to Amerie’s latest single, Heard Em All. Personally, without Wayne, this song would not play at all. Link below for all the Wayne and/or Amerie fans.
