Tupac Shakur lost interview parts 5-6

In the first video you can see Tupac talking on the phone with Suge Knight. In the second one, 2Pac speaks about religion and about his movie Gridlock'd. It seems Tupac was a pretty smart guy. You can feel his enthusiasm and his belief in what he says.

Jay-Z disses 50 cent

50 Cent said some while ago that if Kanye West would have interrupted his speech, he would have blacked his eye. Recently an interviewer told Jay-Z that Kanye wouldn't have done this to 50 Cent.So Jay-Z stated that nobody is scared of 50 Cent.

Drake, Kanye,Wayne, Em - Forever(Music Video)

The "Forever" music video has been released. There are some Cameos in it, like all the four members of Slaughterhouse and Alchemist sitting in the background while Eminem spits its verse. Birdman also sits next to Wayne while he sings his part.
Kanye has a verse where he says something about Barack Obama ruling the world.About a week ago Obama said that Kanye was an "jackass" when he interrupted Taylor Swift's speech at the VMAs.

Of course... Eminem steals the show :D. Watch the video :

Eminem wins VMA

Eminem just won a moonman at the VMAs 2009. He won in the Best Hip-Hop Video category. Many people thought Kanye West would win this. He made a foul out of himself by stealing Taylor Swift's moment. He thought that Beyonce deserved the prize Taylor got so he thought he should say this to everybody. Pink then said Kanye is a piece of sh*t and she also said that he got kicked out of the VMAs and his performance was canceled. Do you think Kanye will beef with Pink ? Knowing the lyricist skills Kanye has... I think Pink could win this easily>:) .
Jay-Z performed a song with Alicia Keys.It was a nice performance so I thought you should see it:

50 Cent not dissing Jay

50 Cent says he wasn't dissing Jay-Z in his music video. Here is the interview :

"It was the glasses. They saw the glasses. I didn't Photoshop glasses on him. I think Jay is really conscious of his actual moves. He does those things to make a statement in different ways to create clarity that he doesn't have to be the way people want him to be. He can do what he wants. But [I wrote the song] out of the perspective of me mentioning things I thought were interesting. I even wrote, 'Em made me a star and Dre is taking a long time to mix my records. I gotta talk to Jimmy [Iovine] about it.' I wrote about Britney Spears. I said a lot of interesting things on the record, but they focus on Jay because his album is releasing. Of course, with those marketing dollars being spent, he's the focus. The new XXL, there's about 40 pages of Jay-Z on there. That boy is serious when it comes to his [album] layout. ... When it comes time for him to have companies market and promote him as a brand, he does a great job."

Soulja Boy wants Em and Jay on his album

Soulja Boy recently said that he would like to have Jay-Z and Eminem on his album. He thinks he has a better shot at Eminem because they're on the same label. And since Eminem made a song with Lil' Wayine, Kanye West and Drake, that wouldn't surprise me. He thinks he can make Diddy put a good word for him at Jay-Z.

50 Cent disses Jay-Z (Flight 187)

This is what 50 Cent thinks of Jay's looks : "Jay rockin' that Urkel look, isn't he from Marcy?/ They say he growing dreads and now he's taking like a Yardie". Jay-Z said competition for him is only Nas and Eminem, not Jim Jones and not The Game. Do you think he is going to answer 50 Cent's diss ?

50 Cent - Flight 187(Jay-Z Diss)(Official Music Video)

Benzino is back

Great , huh ? Of course he disses Eminem again... And Slaughterhouse . The track sounds like there are two songs played at the same time. Of course the lyrics are even worse. I remember that some time ago Benzino even wanted to make a track with Eminem. Sounds like a Rick Ross kind of diss ;).
The track is called : Benzino - Good Fellaz (Dissing Eminem & Slaughterhouse).

Rick Ross on Eminem's "Forever" verse

Eminem was called a "honkey" by Rick Ross some time ago. In the same time Rick Ross said he was a huge Eminem fan. That sound a little stupid to me... Now, Rick Ross praies Shady's verse in "Forever", a song which featured Lil Wayne, Kanye West and Drake. Then he said that he would like to battle Em, even team with Mariah Carey to do so. And finished just as stupid as the first time he dissed Eminem : "Like I said, he might wanna do a record with me." . So... Does Rick Ross want to battle or have a collaboration with him ? Because to me, those two sound different.

I think he should learn something from the "Forever" track. Eminem will murder you on your own song if given the chance. Commercial rappers make a fool of themselves by being on the same song with him.

Some time ago I asked myself in a post "How come so-called hip-hop artists like Rick Ross diss real MCs like Eminem ?"(Here) .Here's how...

Jay-z explains why he does not beef

Jay-Z said in a recent interview that he doesn't respond to disses from Jim Jones and The Game because they are not real competition. Hova explained :"I mean, Game, I'm his f*cking idol" "Like Jim Jones? That's ridiculous to me.". He also mentioned battles that would be worth fighting :
"Competition for me -- is Nas, Eminem."

Frankly I think Nas and Eminem are not on the same level with Jay. They are both better. What do you think ?

Slaughterhouse - Cut you loose(Produced by Mr. Porter)

Slaughterhouse - Cut you loose(Produced by Mr. Porter)

I have just listened to this track and I like the fact that it talks about something that has been bothering me as well. How come so-called hip-hop artists like Rick Ross diss real MCs like Eminem ? How come that kid Soulja Boy talks about legends like Nas ?
In case you didn't know Slaughterhouse means Joell Ortiz,Royce Da 5'9",Crooked I and Joe Budden.
You get the lyrics here :

Slaughterhouse - Cut you loose(Produced by Mr. Porter)

"You're no good I have to cut you loooooose, you loooooose"
[repeat in background]

[Royce Da 5'9"]
Woo! Hello hip-hop, goodbye music

It's like a love-hate relationship
Ridin in the Ferrari while takin trips
Compared to beer takin sips
Sittin somewhere in a Camaro with racin strips
Either way you embrace it
Can't no amount of money or lady replace it
And after all this rhymin
If I refer to you as a girl niggaz'd call this Common
... I'm through as a fan
No disrespect to music, I'm talkin to you as a man
How the FUCK is you flossin a Benz?
Listenin to this nigga Rick Ross dissin Em
Jim Jones dissin Jay
This rap shit done gone a different way (that's right)
I know my lawyers play the lies game
It's okay for Soulja Boy to say Nas' name
Nothin but +Ludacris+ answers
The game backwards like dancers
shootin on the same dancefloor you grew up and answer
to them shooters, now them shooters is dancin
... FUCK you too!
You corny so I gotta cut you loose
I looked in my book of rhymes, took the sign
I swear I heard a few of my nigga Crooked lines

[Crooked I]
I got these A&R's heart racin
Got 'em in fear of me sonnin they flagship artists for spittin {?}
This is bar raisin
I'm raisin the bar so far tryin to look at it's equivalent to star gazin
Think I'd rather be waterboardin - you feel me?
Than to listen to what y'all recordin - for real G
Hell naw, I will not support it
Rather switch places with the child mom's aborted - kill me
My skills be on point like a flyin dart
Sometimes I feel like the messiah of a dyin art
A whole 'nother animal, not the kind that departed on the giant ark
But a vulture with a lion heart
I eloquently breathe fire
I speak for the Eastsiders like I got a Long Beach speech writer
And I could teach riders how to do they thang
So they won't ruin the game for comin off lame
We could be birds of a feather, what does it mean?
Think about it, that mean I put you under my wing
Or I'ma leave this hip-hop thing to all you wack dudes
Cut you loose (you're no good I have to) cut you loose
Call me a hater when I'm tellin the truth - expect it
SoundScan is unveilin the proof - respect it
Here's somethin you could NEVER dispute
The last time I spit a rhyme the roof fell in the booth - I wreck shit

[Joell Ortiz]
Man I feel ruined inside
Somebody tell me what to do, I'm a guy
that loves music but I am truly through with the vibe
Sometimes I wish it was dead, rather than look this stupid alive (word)
I found out I been persuin a lie
It's nothin like, what I thought, man the proof's in the pie
Cause ain't no puddin in the hood when niggaz shoot to survive
But what's my single? Ask dude in the suit and a tie
Who stole the whip? Man I'm losin my drive
I 'member when singles used to have cuts on it
Nowadays the rewind button got mad dust on it
Can't bring it back if it's wack, when they come back then it's crack
I'm FIENDIN for somethin good so I can puff on it
Y'all don't even give me a buzz
I can't enjoy a glass of beer if it's really just suds
Nothin there but the air in y'all heads
Man I'm fed dawg, I had it up to HERE (done!)
I'm cuttin you loose, fuckin abuse
I can't believe they in your talks when you discussin the truth
These dudes suck and they bad liars
This is not what I expected when I was 11 steppin up in rap cyphers
(What's goin on?) I thought you had to be mad nice
But apparently you could be trash as long as you look good and have ice
I ain't complainin, I'm just sayin though
There's no reason a musician should wanna watch a television
instead of be listenin to the radio
I'm cuttin you loose

[Joe Budden]
Look, I used to dream of just bein wit'chu
Woulda probably gave whatever to be seen wit'chu
On the block on the scene wit'chu
And the most beautiful thing wit'chu
is we shared the same passion and I could get cream wit'chu
Not a qualm, not a problem, not a single issue
Then we started arguin, havin single issues
Somethin's off nowadays, you don't seem official
SO! {"You're no good I have to cut you loooooose"}
I see you with them other artists and it's sickenin
E'rything's changed since we parted, you been different
Do whatever for bread boo when you started trickin
For real though {"You're no good I have to cut you loooooose"}
How you could thug me?
If I can't be me when I'm wit'chu, tell me how could you love me?
(How you) Get so ugly - eat it, beat it, treat it better than niggaz
so you still be dyin to fuck me, baby don't interrupt me!
Ain't complete tryin to compete but you judge me
What you really think of me, you disgust me
I 12-step my addict itch
So Method Man, you could have that bitch
But now she got neighbors against me, still her favorite MC
I just hit her hard and she got papers against me
It's cool; I get up wit'chu later if meant be
Just text them old heads, tell 'em mate with they memories

"You're no good I have to cut you loooooose, you loooooose"
[repeat to fade]

Jin - Welcome To The Light Club

Jin - Welcome To The Light Club

Jin Welcome To The Light Club Lyrics

I got a session booked for 7 and its 6.35,
so I got 25 minutes to conjure up this rhyme,
its been a long time right stepped away from the limelight,
but the breaks over Holy Spirit takeover,
they say the truth will set you free if you so believe,
Jesus is the truth with Him freedom can be achieved,
I feel the need to let loose right at this instance,
confession booth vocal booth really what’s the difference,

See when I use to battle I declared I’m the boss
I couldn’t be defeated.. until I lost,
not once not twice, my opponents were killin’ me,
ego crushed but it also taught me humility,
was once on the top sent straight to the bottom,
some thought double R dropped him others straight forgot him,
I used to hear the side commentary and get upset with it,
until I realized what was said had some sense in it,
no excuses for the stupid records that I made,
would I still be saying this if those records had got me paid?
I can’t call it, either way I’m tryin’ to save what’s left of
my soul and not just what’s goin inside my wallet,
the beat was the canvas the paint was my rhymes,
never thought that I could use my art to infiltrate ya minds,

I used the mic to express how I possessed a lota skills,
my lust for the opposite sex and 100 dolla bills,
Common said He Used To Love H.E.R. yo she still
my baby so it’s only right I learn to treat H.E.R. like a lady
you want raps about pimpin’ killin’ snitchin’ ballin’?
you won’t get ‘em from me naw that’s not my callin’,
God Almighty reached out I mean this sincerely,
He spoke to me like Morgan Freeman did to Jim Carey,
it’s no coincidence he got me out in Hong Kong,
that I’d get it poppin’ out here He knew it all along,

Listen to have much faith requires practice,
they’ll probably say I’m trippin’ they did it to John the Baptist,
this is not a rumor God is so great,
I’m a late bloomer got baptized in ‘08,
better late than never that’s how the saying goes,
all my brothers and sisters that are praying knows,
Mark chapter 10 the 31st verse,
the first shall be last and the last shall be first,


I think Jin was really dope on this freestyle even though it could've been longer. He tried to separate quality hip-hop from the commercial rap. He also made a reference to Common's song "I used to love H.E.R."(Check below). Above all he raps about humility.
How many rappers have said at some time that they are the best rapper ever, that they are unbeatable etc. Let's think about it : Jay-z, Immortal Technique ,Krs-one ,50 cent ,Lil' Wayne, Nas ,Eminem ,Royce Da 5'9" ... Most of them said something very close to that. Nas even said he shouldn't be in the top 10, but he also said "I'm the best who ever did it".

Common - I used to love H.E.R.

Tell me what do you think, please !
