Damn remember when Teairra Mari was the princess of The ROC? Then Jay saw them album sales, made a switch, and then Rihanna became the new princess.  That didn’t stop Teairra though she’s back after a couple years and a couple of album contracts she might finally be on the right path to success and she’s joining up with her former label mate Kanye West for a ROC reunion! You know you feel them late 90’s and them early ’00’s!

Speaking of Kanye he recently posted some his new Louis Vuitton ads on his blog:

Them black ones is killin me softly! (but whos lookin at the shoes doe). Imma stick to my Air Yeezy’s doe because these 1000 dollar shoes are a little bit out of budget.  As for Amber Rose if you got her flaunt her…that goes to Kanye…lol

Posted in Dope! New Music with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 12, 2008 by simplydope

Ponder on that for a minute…..20 different artist covering A Millie. When is the last time 20 different artist covered the same beat? This A Miilie stuff is like a disease in the rap community. It seems like every rapper is addicted to the beat and feel the must hop on it and ‘spit they game talk they ish’. This is every rapper known to man [so far] who has hopped on the A Miilie beat and it’s a whopping 20. Yea thats right 20 people and you’ll be shocked at a couple of em. Now dont think I could rate them or anything like that it’s only so many times that somebody can listen to A Millie and not go crazy. But you be the judge choose the ones your interested in because I can guarantee you can’t listen to all of them…

Hip-Hop Beefs (Part 2 of 4): Peedi Crack Vs. Jay-Z

Posted in Dope! News with tags , on June 8, 2008 by simplydope

The beef between Jay-Z and Peedi Crack isn’t really a beef but more like Peedi Crack lashing out a Jay-Z because of him being dropped fro Roc-A-Fella Records. If you can remember back in January when Peedi was released from his contract he said back then: “I’m not mad at Jay, I don’t care about Jay. Jay doesn’t exist to me.” Well fast forward three months later and this is released:

Thats right Peedi was signed to Amalgam Digital and has plans on releasing his album “Camel Face Huntin’ Season” September 2008. The above image is the supposed album cover which shows Peedi’s former boss Jay-Z looking like a camel. Here’s what Peedi had to say about his new label:

“Yup. I’m back! And I feel unstoppable. My flow is advanced and as an artist, I’m getting better, especially without the claws of Roc-A-Fella digging at my back. I’ve been a free agent for the past 3 months and now signing with the Amalgam Digital label for my first project I feel even more unstoppable. They are providing exactly what Peedi always needed…proper promotion and distribution. BANG! It’s Camel Face Hunting Season”

This video was also released which shows Peedi officially announcing “Camel Face Huntin’ Season”:

Wonder how Jay-Z feels about all this? Well he hasn’t released any type of statement yet so maybe after this album comes out he’ll start talkin….
