General Discussion / Hip Hop crossing over
« on: February 20, 2011, 11:12:32 AM »
For Hip Hop to grow and reach the largest ma**es should the movement cross over. Most heads would debate that hip hop is loosing is purest form. Publications are mostly showcasing artists who are willing to cross over and blend the verbalism with other genres.

Music is a universal language that bouds down to expression wether about how we feel about current world issues or our history yet should hip hop expand in all these dimesions wont it loose its core form? Slick Rick adapted the European flavoure of Drum and Ba** and laced it well with his profound story telling concepts. Lately the likes of Kanye West dwell on the metronone which a lot of underground cats tend to renoun played out. This too can be viewed as a form of crossing over.
The likes of Ray Charles won their Grammies through crossing over, before that their were only popular around their own country. With lengardy artists such as Chucka khan, Teddy Pendagra**, Marvin Gay..etc being  sampled by even the most confrontational artists like Blu-Below the heavens, Canibus-Whats going on, Rhymfest-sister or Jay-z-ignorant on their casual tracks who's to say sampling is not crossing over or that crossing over is selling out. Most of the songs mentioned here sold millions but does this guerantee artists that crossing over will get you ma** appeal?

A lot of battle rappers got a big mouth but cant make a hit. This combination of a rugga muffin, three battle cats, one producer/emcee and a lyricist diabolic wit a pen brings you the definition of a super group, with nuff versitility too.

Its Zeb, Sub,St,Base1,Wun8sevn and J Blaq
This was a Vaal located clique but now we on sum next shit. All i can say is visit da AFMP reverb link and holla back.

Bernard Madoff gets maximum 150 years in prison
Bernard Madoff sentenced to maximum 150 years in prison for vast fraud
By Tom Hays and Larry Neumeister, a**ociated Press Writers
On Monday June 29, 2009, 1:38 pm EDT
       Buzz up! 0 Print
 NEW YORK (AP) -- Historic swindler Bernard Madoff was sentenced to 150 years in prison Monday for a fraud so extensive that the judge said he needed to send a symbolic message to potential imitators and to victims who demanded harsh punishment.

Scattered applause and whoops broke out in the crowded Manhattan courtroom after U.S. District Judge Denny Chin issued the maximum sentence to the 71-year-old defendant, who said he lives "in a tormented state now, knowing all the pain and suffering I've created."

Chin rejected a request by Madoff's lawyer for leniency and said he disagreed that victims of the fraud were seeking mob vengeance.

"Here the message must be sent that Mr. Madoff's crimes were extraordinarily evil and that this kind of manipulation of the system is not just a bloodless crime that takes place on paper, but one instead that takes a staggering toll," Chin said.

The judge said the estimate that Madoff has cost his victims more than $13 billion was conservative because it did not include money from feeder funds.

"Objectively speaking, the fraud here was staggering," he said.

Chin announced the sentence with Madoff standing at the defense table, wearing a dark suit, white shirt and a tie, and looking thinner than his last court appearance in March. He gave no noticeable reaction when the sentence was announced.

He also showed no emotion earlier in the hearing as he listened to nine victims spend nearly an hour describing their despair. Some openly wept. Others raised their voices in anger.

"Life has been a living hell. It feels like the nightmare we can't wake from," said Carla Hirshhorn.

"He stole from the rich. He stole from the poor. He stole from the in between. He had no values," said Tom Fitzmaurice. "He cheated his victims out of their money so he and his wife Ruth could live a life of luxury beyond belief."

Dominic Ambrosino called it an "indescribably heinous crime" and urged a long prison sentence so "will know he is imprisoned in much the same way he imprisoned us and others."

He added: "In a sense, I would like somebody in the court today to tell me how long is my sentence."

When asked by the judge whether he had anything to say, Madoff slowly stood, leaned forward on the defense table and spoke in a monotone for about 10 minutes. At various times, he referred to his historic fraud as a "problem," "an error of judgment" and "a tragic mistake."

He claimed he and his wife were tormented, saying she "cries herself to sleep every night, knowing all the pain and suffering I have caused," he said. "That's something I live with, as well."

He then finally looked at the victims lining the first row of the gallery.

"I will turn and face you," he said. "I'm sorry. I know that doesn't help you."

Afterward, Ruth Madoff -- often a target of victims' scorn since her husband's arrest -- broke her silence by issuing a statement through her lawyer. She said she, too, had been misled.

"I am embarra**ed and ashamed," she said. "Like everyone else, I feel betrayed and confused. The man who committed this horrible fraud is not the man whom I have known for all these years."

Prosecutor Lisa Baroni said Madoff deserved a life sentence because he "stole ruthlessly and without remorse."

The jailed Madoff already has taken a severe financial hit: Last week, a judge issued a preliminary $171 billion forfeiture order stripping Madoff of all his personal property, including real estate, investments, and $80 million in a**ets Ruth Madoff had claimed were hers. The order left her with $2.5 million.

The terms require the Madoffs to sell a $7 million Manhattan apartment where Ruth Madoff still lives. An $11 million estate in Palm Beach, Florida, a $4 million home in Montauk on Long Island, and a $2.2 million boat will be put on the market as well.

Before Madoff became a symbol of Wall Street greed, he earned a reputation as a trusted money manager with a Midas touch. Even as the market fluctuated, clients of his secretive investment advisory business -- from Florida retirees to celebrities such as Steven Spielberg, actor Kevin Bacon and Hall of Fame pitcher Sandy Koufax -- for decades enjoyed steady double-digit returns.

But late last year, Madoff made a dramatic confession: Authorities say he pulled his sons aside and told them it was "all just one big lie."

Madoff pleaded guilty in March to securities fraud and other charges, saying he was "deeply sorry and ashamed." He insisted that he acted alone, describing a separate wholesale stock-trading firm run by his sons and brother as honest and legitimate.

Aside from an accountant accused of cooking Madoff's books, no one else has been criminally charged. But the family, including his wife, and brokerage firms who recruited investors have come under intense scrutiny by the FBI, regulators and a court-appointed trustee overseeing the liquidation of Madoff's a**ets.

The trustee and prosecutors have sought to go after a**ets to compensate thousands of burned victims who have filed claims against Madoff. How much is available to pay them remains unknown, though it's expected to be only a fraction of the astronomical losses a**ociated with the fraud.

The $171 billion forfeiture figure used by prosecutors merely mirrors the amount they estimate that, over decades, "flowed into the principal account to perpetrate the Ponzi scheme." The statements sent to investors showing their accounts were worth as much as $65 billion were fiction.

The investigation has found that in reality, Madoff never made any investments, instead using the money from new investors to pay returns to existing clients -- and to finance a lavish lifestyle for his family.

In bankruptcy filings, Trustee Irving Picard say family members "used customers accounts as though they were their own," putting Madoff's maid, boat captain and house-sitter in Florida on the company payroll and paying nearly $1 million in fees at high-end golf clubs on Long Island and in Florida.

Picard has sought to reclaim ill-gotten gains by freezing Madoff's business bank accounts and selling legitimate portions of his firm. (Its season tickets for the Mets went for $38,100.) He's also sued big money managers and investors for billions of dollars, claiming they were Madoff cronies who also cashed in on the fraud.

The defendants include leading philanthropists Stanley Chais and Jeffry Picower -- from whom Picard is seeking at least $5.1 billion alleged to have come out of victims' pockets -- and hedge fund manager J. Ezra Merkin. All have denied any wrongdoing.

General Discussion / Future fathers
« on: June 03, 2009, 04:16:19 PM »
Hip hop music has seen a lot of infamous artist turn out to be good fathers and husbands. (Kids please dont comment and learn for responsible folks). My problem is how journalists have portrayed us emcees and entertainers at the most as loose canons with a crave for a quicky and intoxications. This is debatable as Snoop is well known for his chronic M.J habits but he has an acceptable life with a gorgeouse woman and no crack heads for kids. To mention a few others who have disapointed media expectations Ja Rule, Rev Run, Game, Jakki the mota mouth...the list goes on.
To all those expecting to be daddies, i know what you going through. Aggresive spouses, dry season(you know what i mean too- ;)dont front) and endless bills. They say most relationships end because of such stress which occurs this particular time. What ever calms you down get pounds of it and cheating will only make you infamouse, recentfull and you will end up being just a maintainance cheque.

According to you, if your woman is pregnant and you are not getting any, your bank account is not worth looking at but you surviving and still showing support, how can you then avoid loosing her. I know drama sells but the media also needs to stop promoting bad reputations about rappers and try recognise how many RnB fathers and so called Divas turn out to be junkies and players, then give credit to heads sharing true life stories that might save theirs and your kids life someday.

General Discussion / Da Mixtape culture
« on: April 22, 2009, 02:18:16 PM »
Look and listen got my vote right now, they bringin in good imports just too costy. It was hard choosing where to blow over R200 in a cd store knowing im da Bootlegger. Little brother had a good selection of artists, Dre and Detox or even his albums made me feel like mixtapes rule. Yet i miss dat Def squad flavour, bumpin Eric Onasis made me realise how valuable Eazy E was to da game. Had jaw pains gaggin to a PApoose mixtape collection coz da nigga got way too many. I dig his collabos with Mobb deep tho.

why is it that mixtapes can over shadow the artists actual album? i personally dont  like featuring unless we on da same wave lenght. Lyrics and beats are like cookin, good mixes only make the flavour but the type of food mixed change the cuisine. Happy voting day yall.
Let me know what your best mixtapes of all times were coz i want that collection too.
