General Discussion / The Recession
« on: March 20, 2009, 06:52:27 PM »
No this thread has fukkol to do with Young Jeezy.


I just read a very interesting story about some dudes who used to be in the music biz. Basically it indicated that the Recession is very real. So... Im a**uming many more stories like this will come thru in the next few months/years.. So go head and post your recession related stories here...



And 3 members of Soul 4 Real have been indicted on 145 counts of Aggravated Identity Fraud
.  WTF??  I don’t know who’s who anymore but Duluth, GA police say that Brian Dalyimple’s brothers (and fellow group members), Jason Dalyrimple and Andre Dalyrimple will all be indicted.

33 year old Brian was arrested on suspicion of identity fraud earlier this month after somebody reported $12 g’s thanks to fraudulent purchases.  According to the PD:

 

     “[We also found] a multitude of fraudulently obtained credit cards,” said Major Woodruff of Duluth PD, “documents for bank loans, checking and savings accounts in fraudulent names, account and routing numbers belonging to legitimate accounts and documents containing identifying information of many individuals.”

 

They just needed some candy coated raindrops to get them through the day.  This recession is getting real real for these 90’s stars. © YBF


Wow... normally I would laugh at shit like this.. but dang... The Recession is here!

Hip Hop Events / Mos Def @ Jazzfest in Cape Town
« on: February 10, 2009, 05:16:42 PM »


bishes.. get ready to get wet. Dante is on the way. Start saving those Rands and copping those Cape Town airtickets and Jazzfest tickets.

The 2009 Cape Town International Jazz Festival that takes place at the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) on 03-04 April will be a “mother of all celebrations”. Not only is the festival to celebrate its tenth anniversary, organisers have lined up a programme in which different musicians will toast their achievements. Already, legendary trumpeter Hugh Masekela, celebrates his seventieth birthday at one of the event’s five stages. So is Cape Town–based Latin-beat group, Loading Zone. The band celebrates its twentieth anniversary at this year’s Cape Town International Jazz Festival. The two acts are part of the initial nineteen artists announced in December 2008.

General Discussion / Rap lyrics you've heard and wondered WTF?
« on: January 29, 2009, 05:02:59 PM »
Every now and again... we hear a rap lyric that we think we didn't hear properly and we're left a little confused. Over the years I've been hearing some of these but havent had the balls to just ask someone..'tha f*** did this ninja just say?'...

Sometimes the wording is crystal clear but still leaves one confused... and Im not just doing this cos Im bored... I genuinely want to know what they mean..

heres some examples:

on the new Illa J- 'Are u listening?'... dude is rhyming and then suddenly says ' A fat lady on the couch... does anybody notice?'.... what the phuck does that mean..?

I remember hearing Keith Murray say 'all you really did was to dobo (sp?) the chicken' in a song.. again.. wtf?

Some people thought Lauren Hill was saying 'Strumming my brain with his finger'... I know this cos I had an argument over it..

OR

lyrics that make you think.. "I would never have said that"...

50 cent: "Yayo, bring the condoms/I'm in Room 203"
Biggie:  " You look so good, I'd suck on your Daddy dick"... (really? :o)
Can-I-Bus: "you aint got the skillz to eat a niggas a** like me" (no homo lifetime award)


Im sure you have some of your own...
If anyone could please clarify what the first 3 examples mean.. I'll be grateful..

General Discussion / Fab - Credit Crunch
« on: January 28, 2009, 01:35:14 PM »


More evidence that this recession is real:

    Fabolous went from “Nothin’ to Somethin’ ” on his last album, but at an Atlanta restaurant, his credit is back to nothing. The rapper showed up at the hot Eros World Tapas Bar on Saturday with an entourage of more than 20, a source said. They requested “the usual excess of champagne and alcohol, so the manager asked for a credit card to start a tab.” Unfortunately, Fabolous’ credit cards were all declined. “By the fifth credit card, the entourage member designated to take care of his tab goes outside,” our source said, “only to start a fight with the outside bouncer. He tripped and fell, hitting his head on the concrete and started bleeding. The manager called an ambulance. But as soon as the entourage member also saw the police, he began running away, blood oozing down his face.” Fabolous and his posse stayed and ordered champagne but paid cash.

Hot Traxxx / Joe Budden vs Saigon
« on: January 15, 2009, 06:58:32 PM »
Not even half a month into the new year... and the rap beef is brewing...

U decide..

Saigon on Joe Budden (none):

On Joe Budden:

 It has been bought to my attention that Joe Budden used my name in a disrespectful way in one of his punchlines on B.E.T., I understand he’s not getting the attention he feels he deserves but to try to use me to get it is a BAD MOVE on his part..I guess he’s trying to bait me into a rap battle like he’s known for doing..I have never had a lyrical rap beef because its not my thing. I beef a little differently. I know I just said I woudnt harm a person who didnt try to harm me but I feel he’s trying to harm my credibilty soooo..If I let him get away with that, EVERYONE will be dissing me in there freestyles, so again, Im gonna say sorry to Nelly and tell Joe Budden that when I see him, Im going to slap EARTH, WIND and FIRE out of HIM instead. REAL TALK..

Doug E. Fresh

12/15/2008: Banks are taking action to collect over $3.5 million in unpaid mortgages from Douglas Davis, better known as rap icon Doug E. Fresh. Davis, renowned for his beat boxing skills, has been hit with foreclosure notices on three Harlem homes. The 46-year-old Harlem native also owes about $60,000 to American Express, $40,000 in taxes to the state, and the IRS has imposed a $367,000 tax lien on his property, according to the New York Post.

Mo Molemi leaves the mic for peanuts   

By Lerato Matsaneng
3 September 2008

I have my artistic side and an agricultural side to my character

Mo Molemi is leaving the music industry. The rapper says he will release his final album at the end of the year before heading back to his family’s farm to do what he loves most - farming.

"I’m not bowing out, I’m packing my stuff and absconding, and I’m not hiding it. There is nothing that this industry can offer me anymore," he says.


His disillusionment has been building for some time.

Molemi, 27, used to be a member of the hip hop group Morafe.

Together with fellow members Towdee, Kay-G and Khuli, they started the group in 1997 and back then the group was named Il-tribe. In 2000 they changed their name to Morafe. When the group finally got their record deal and released their debut album Maru a Pula in June 2005, Molemi was not part of the deal because he had already decided to give it up. He officially left the group in 2006.

"I was sick and tired of the industry. It had consumed me and I just felt that I needed a break," he says.

LEARNING TO GROW

Instead, Molemi began working on his family’s farm on the border of Mafikeng and Botswana.

"It was the best three years of my life. I don’t think anything I’ve ever done can compare to the great time I had in those three years."

Molemi started off with a 2m x 1m vegetable plot and says that within a year he had increased his output to 3 hectares (300 metres square) with crops like maize, sunflowers, peanuts and vegetables.

"I always tell people that if God would have let me farm till I’m 80 years old, then I would have lived the best life ever."

Molemi says he has already supplied food retailers such as Spar and Fruit&Veg with fresh vegetables from his farm. He would like to expand this in future.

"My dream is to have all the local retailers selling Molemi vegetables," he says.

I THOUGHT I WOULD GIVE IT ANOTHER CHANCE

During the past three years he was farming, Molemi also worked on making a comeback to the industry.


In 2007 he released his debut album Amantsi. The album sold 7,000 copies. This is despite a generally positive reception for it, including his music getting airtime play.


"The record label failed me because they couldn’t match the demand for the album. I’m not bad-mouthing them, but just stating facts," he says.

"I produced music but I have not seen the fruits of my labour.

"I’m expected to make money from shows ... But I’m producing a product. (So I don’t see why) I’m expected to make a living by risking my life and travelling from one point to another...

"So I’m very disgruntled with the music industry," he says.


Currently attempts to get a comment from EMI have been unsuccessful. We have contacted Wandile Skhosana and Sydney Dlamini respectively who have referred us to Orack Chabangu, from whom we are awaiting a return call.

ONE MORE FOR MY FANS

Molemi says he will release one final album before the end of the year.

He and Tuks Senganga are planning a tour together to promote the release of their albums during the summer.

"This album will be for all my fans who supported me through the tough times... - and for an audience who want to hear music from someone with something to say," Molemi says. "I’m bidding them and the industry farewell."










cant say I disagree. The 'Industry' is not quite where its at..
