Nas is coming to get your sorry ass 5-0

We need ether II.

By posting a blog coment on an off time I find myself in the role of the good Brother, Nimord. Well with all the commotion and activity in my mother’s house I decided to get on my mom’s old dial up computer ( I know - I have been trying to convince her for years to upgrade...lol) to burn a little time before the grilling “get going.” By the way, I took my son to see Hancock this morning and it was incredible.

Will Smith is a flat out movie superstar. As much as we praise cats like Rakim (who I think is the greatest rapper, ever) Big Daddy Kane and KRS 1 and even the contemporaries like Jay Z, Nas, Ice Cube, 50 cents, Lil Wayne, Kanye and others, possibly the greatest hip hop story is Will Smith. As a rapper on his best day I thought he was mediocre. However this cat is a former rapper turn actor and as an actor he is phenomenal. I am not just talking about Hancock which is basically a lot of action and destruction and requires very little acting but the total body of this cat’s work is what blows me away. He may be the most impressive person to ever pick up a “Hip Hop” microphone. Anyway I digress terribly.

I want to bigup my big Brother, Earnest Frazier and the homie Dre G. E. Fra always read situations exceptionally well. After much debate on sohh I think the consensus was that Nas’ n*gger title probably was miscast. We saw him struggle to articulate his vision for the project and even his strongest supporters like me begin to think that he had bitten of little more than he could chew.

However on a consistent basis E. Fra said “ Forget the title. I don’t care about the title. I think the album will be amazing. I caution people about jumping off the deep end with their condemnation of Nas and the project. Listen to the project first and then make a judgement”. Dre G echoed similar sentiments. Well I have heard the entire album and it is amazing. I can’t say that he met his initial conceived framework but like E. Frazier I don’t care about that.


This album is exceptionally good. This Album is what I call “Hip Hop.” I love it. In terms of Nas’ dissing 50, he may have taken a little shot at 50 but I doubt if Nas is interested in 50. G-Unit is a corpse. They are done. What does Nas need to kick a corpse for. That Young Buck situation finished them off along with some other factors. Read Sohh Gyant’s blog on G-Unit’s demise. He sums it perfectly.

Anyway, this NAS joint will not disappoint anyone who loves Hip Hop.

Oh, React other than me I doubt if any of those loud mouth Negroes we talked about several weeks ago are thinking about Remy ma, today...lol.

Now I am amazed at how people are viewing Young Buck situation wrong. Once again I think Gyant perfectly hit that situation on the head. My view of it is Young Buck is winning. Yes I said winning. Just as Buck said in his song people are now seeing 50's recording Buck’s phone call as hitting below the belt. I predicted that he would suffer a backlash from that. I mean other than BKB, a homie who I have a tremendous amount of respect for, most people who praise such action have a little trite mind and are excited by childish trite things. However, mature people’s initial reaction may have been “Ole sh*t” but after greater reflection, assessment and evaluation they said “wait a minute. That kind of thing disagree with my soul, value system and norms and really at my core, I can’t support that kind of character. See it is just who we are as a people. As a people although we do a lot of dirty sh*t - the vast majority of us don’t like to see people of any race victimized by dirty sh*t. So much of the music buying southerners have turned their back on 50. Buck is one of theirs and they don’t like the way he was treated. These Buck G-Unit songs (which all have been fire) are not target to New Yorkers. He is doing these songs to speak to the south. See you are missing the point. It is the south’s ear he want and not yours and he is accomplishing that. The other thing is he knows that even in good standing that he didn’t have a future with G-Unit. The country are just tired of them. Again Sohh Gyant explains that exceptionally well. Buck going back to G-Unit even if the call had not been leaked by 50 still would not have gotten him more than 150 units sold in week one and would not had went gold, overall. So he still would not have been able to make any money with G-Unit because the name brand right now is awful. He could tour overseas and make a little chump change with them but that is it.

So he is not losing. He is winning. He needs to write a “tell all” book about G-Unit and take those earnings from the book and launch his labels with some new acts. He does have to rap. Just being a label owner and make money from that. Become the Diddy (without the homo qualitites) 0f the south.

In terms of Hov jacking Kanye: Please would you give me a break. You cats always misread sh*t. Whatever happened to the concept of hiphop journalism. Maybe the Homie Nimrod was right. Maybe Hip Hop is dieing and sooner than later will die completely.

Peace to the real!!

You speak the truth here.

And I'm gonna finish g-unit for good, I Have already introduced a petition to call for the removal of g-unit not only from interscope records but also the music industry as a whole.

This is my rebellion against this trash

and fuck g-unit stans for supporting this bullshit, how dare this clown taped conversation from other rappers, lied to the hip-hop community and american music fans about his shot 9 times, trampled and subverting the genre itself, going after true rappers who are more talented than he is.

I Rather listen to the annoying DJ Khaled over this.

Young Buck needs to go on 99 Jams and interview about this mess.

and as for funkmaster flex, he can fuck himself for all I Care.

@Gaynt

You did know that Jay has been wearing those ugly glasses for a while now. Even before Kanye. No matter what those glasses are a bad move

Phonex360

50 must be good because he gets alot of hate...buck had way b4 all of this been on some other ish...plus if 50 is doing a interview and they have the audio it would have leaked anyway...conversations are being listened to all of the time..hell when I call for help on my blackberry somebody is recording...say what you mean mean what you say...

EVERYONE IF 50 WAS HIS OLD SELF HE WOULD HAVE MURDERD ANYONE BACK IN 1997-2002 HE WAS SO HUNGRY HE WAS THE ILLEST RAPPER BUT HOW HE GOT OVER THE YEARS HE GOT SOFT BUT I STILL GOT LOVE FOR 50 AND G-UNIT BUT I SWEAR IF 50 WAS RAPPING RIGHT NOW LIKE HE WAS BACK IN THE DAY NO ONE I MEAN NO ONE! COULD BATTLE HIM EVERY SINGEL TRACK HE HAD WAS ILL EVERY SINGEL ONE THROUGH 1997-2002 LIKE THE CDS THE POWER OF THE DOLLAR AND GUESS WHOS BACK?

FUCK ALL YALL HATERZ!!!

I Don't give a shit if 5-0 returns to his old bullshit self, Either way, him and his crew should be indicted for treason and imprisoned for the rest of their lives.

centinel

Terminate on Site is way better then Wayne's Carter III, and it was done in a much shorter time span. The media took the real beef situation as what got 50 in the game, conditioning the public to say that 50 is beef igniting. Forgetting the fact that 50 walked the same path as every successful artist. Getting out in the streets, and grinding to make a name for himself. In Queens he had 20 songs, on 20 different DJ's mixtapes. I remember Canibus starting out dissing rappers, and where is he? Beef doesn't guarantee you to remain in the game and make money, but your hustle will.

Someone just took a casual conversation from Ice-T, and made a big fuss about that to create beef with an elder versus a kid. The sad part is the journalist who brought it to paper, probably feels the same way about Soulja Boy, yet he will compromise himself to make a story. That's fake. The media loves beef, and so does the public. The question is who is involved? If it's 50, then it's wrong. Everyone else, and its right. Who do you think writes the stuff that makes the people get so mad at 50? Journalists. So my question is instead of reading 100's of articles saying the exact same thing about 50, then blogging how you hate 50, why not bash the writer for making this an article in the first place.

If quote un quote 50 is a beef starter, then why entertain it? The question is because we love beef, and dissention, and journalists wouldn't have nothing else to write about. 50 said he was renovating a park in Southside an 500,000 project. I haven't seen an article about that. So when someone exploits the M.O. that the public created for him, and actually wins we hate. We love the underdog in life.

The reason people love Buck right now, is because he's still on our level, and that's sad to say. He blew his money, then burned his bridges, and he can't swim. So we could relate to more of his music because he is still on the major grind to climb out the hole he put himself in. I will say in this situation as a fan if you don't hold buck accountable for how he's handling his career, being smokescreened by the guilty until proven innocence view of 50 Buck will continue to be irresponsible.
because you hate 50, everyone wants to say yeah Buck we'll ride for you. The real truth is Buck is irresponsible. However because we love beef, or anything anti 50 we just want to see him lose, so we blind Buck from his own issues because the selfish fan wants to see 50 lose. Buck owes 50 money, got distraught because he was broke, and started talking ish. 50 gave Buck a long rope, and he hung himself finally. How is 50 disloyal to Buck? What did 50 do to Buck before this tape came out? Nothing. What did he say bad about Buck before the tape? Nothing. I do remember Buck talking about Yayo's court case on the radio though. I remember Buck saying he never seen a royalty check. I do remember Buck meeting up with Jadakiss in Vegas, and burned one wit him. That cool to do right because it's 50 Cent's crew that your doing it to. Buck was frustrated because his money ran out, and spoke out of frustration. Buck's issue was money, not beef. So now Buck wants to come with the same dis songs, and say the same thing everyone else says. If 50 doesn't put out the tape, then you would still diss 50, and takes Buck side anyway. What this does is comfirm that Buck is fraudulent. With Buck you had to do that, because he is a back & forth person. 50 is always guilty anyway and you people would have found a way to make the charge stick regardless of what evidence is actually there. It's ok for Buck to diss 50 in the media before all this occurred because everyone is anti 50 anyway, but then 50 responds to shots taken at him, and now Buck and his fans want to get all emotional. Now the fans say 50 is wrong? How? By retaliating? So what part of war has integrity. War is War. Yada Yada Yada. So all you southerners who are riding for Buck was you riding for him when southern cats could have put him out, and didn't leaving an East Coast person responsible for his rise, and himself for his fall? Yall ain't ridin for Buck yall just anti-50. So are you ridin for the southernor Soulja Boy then over Ice-T? Yeah right! Buck is disloyal, and needs to take a good look in the mirror at himself. He's a fraud. You can't have your cake, and eat it too. When you sign that contract you joining a new family. Yo don't pop off about your fam when the issues in question are as a result of your doing. That's illogicaL.

People please help me understand this:

If we are on the block together, and we say that we are down for each other, and you provide for me whether I earned it or not, how then do I say I don't f@ck with them like that? True enough you can obviously do what you want, but if everyone sees that yall are riding for each other, and you speak it out loudly, then if someone has beef with that crew that you professed loyalty to, do you think that if they want to shoot, that they gon say wait a minute don't aim for him shoot the rest? If so then its a set up. I know some of yall are or were bangers. If you a blood, and on the block banging with bloods all day long, why would you go to the Crips block wearing Red? What do you say? "Yo man I'm my own man. I bang with them to get my bread, then go my seperate way?" Do you think the Crips will say cool yo, or will they still bust your ish? What about the bloods if they found out you feel that way? Would they not bust your ish for being disloyal. The Crips would be cool with the dissention between him, and the bloods because they hate the bloods, so it could be anyone in the same position, but in the back of they minds they are saying I couldn't f@ck with him, because look how he saying one thing, and doing another. He would do the same to me. By doing that you come from under the safety of being with your clique that gon ride or die for you. So now you just out there disloyal on both sides with no one able to trust you. As a result you can get hit now from both directions rather than just lookin for shots from one.

Bottom Line is all this is a result of the media, and how they overhype things to make a story.

But for me T.O.S. is one of the worst of 2008 in my opinion, it is horrible.

ms. t

If you young kids don't know NAS by now ...YOU WILL NEVER NEVER KNOW HIM !!

He is real ... i like 50 but A NAS he is not !! There is no one on the charts that can hold anything to him and that's real talk fo sho.

NAS IS THE TRUTH .....ALL OTHERS ...ARE LIES !!

JohnnyACE♠ GRAND MASTER SEN$Ei {{-_-}}™

Notice how all the 50 Cent stans will NEVER mention NaS even once.

'Nuff said. Gay Unit is FINISHED. Ether II coming soon!

tweetygirl

Nas is the truth. When Nas targets you, you might as well roll over and retire cause you don't want Nas to fire. It is no reason for Nas to destroy fif because he already digging his own grave. On the upside 50 is a great business man and entertainer. He knows how to market himself, but he does not have the lyrical skills to battle Nas. 50 can shoot bullets, but Nas has on a bullet proof vest. I am rooting for Buck, but dude need to get his stuff together. How can Buck knock Banks and Yayo for mooching when he was doing the samething? That's like 50 knocking JaRule for singing instead of rapping and now all he do is sing.

centinel

Johnny I wonder when you became a Nas fan. Probably recently. Much like Jadakiss, it was known another person was more lyrical, yet Jada ended up blackballed out the game. Nas is that dude. Favorite lyricist of mine every since Halftime was tearing up mixtapes in Queens before Illmatic, however when I look at the Jay-Z situation, how you beefin, wit a dude, and now you worked for him. That to me lets you know who truly lost between Nas and Jay-Z. When the public was sayin Nas put Jay-Z in his place. Where Jay at, and where Nas at? Nas is striking controversy as of late, and that is how he is selling records. Nas could always rhyme that's a given. His last two albums, one was Hip-Hop was dead, the other called Nigger. Sounds to me someone is trying to stack his paper, and let yall tell it 50 is the king of controversy, so a page has been borrowed. If it was Soulja Boy Versus 50, yall would crown soulja boy the winner without hearing a word. Any thing involving 50 wouldn't be failr judged. Of course Nas is a better lyricist, but I'll put it like this all you loyal fans of music. How many of you will actually buy Nas album rather than download it, or buy it for 5 off the street? About 90%!

JohnnyACE♠ GRAND MASTER SEN$Ei {{-_-}}™

Centinel, I've probably listened to NaS longer than you have. And it shows.

Most of the stuff you said was irrelevant. I really could care less about label politics. And when did Jay-Z come into the picture? We're talkin about Nas vs. 5-0, bruh. Get with the program. Curtis is gonna lose this battle no matter which way you look at it.

Jadakiss is that dude also. I'd gladly spend money on his next album at the record store also. Sure buying it off the street is cheaper, but a true fan NEVER STEALS from his favorite artist. Something a lot of people could also learn.

thebest

JohnnyACE is right on the button.

tweetygirl

Centinel and Johnny Ace forgot to mention that Nas is not a business man, he is a rapper. 2pac was one of the best lyricst in the game, but he was not a business man. Nas don't beef to destroy careers, he breaks you down to humble you. He does not want to destroy 50, but he is going to break him down. I think we may see some of 50 best work if does go to war with Nas. 50 won't win, but you might see the old hungry determined 50 when he was broke. Jay is a great business man. Like the saying goes keep your friends close and your enemies closer. He can't be a success when he has Nasty Nas that at any moment destroy what he has. So why not have Nas on your team to ensure that another Ethere happens.

centinel

Johnny

Like I said I'm sure you haven't listenned to Nas before illmatic, and live at the barbeque. I am born in raised in Jamaica, when Nas was on GMV mixtapes. I'm sure you know who GMV is right? Obviously Nas was out way before 50. It contradicts what you preach in your lyrics to turn around and work for Jay-Z. He would have never done it when Ether came out. This man went after your baby moms out of spite. Nas was about lyrics when Illmatic came out, then went commercial on his next 2 albums. Tweety Nas is becoming a more of a business man now. Now he too has been making headlines, when it was Nas normal character to chill, and not grab headlines. Hip-Hop Is Dead was a shot at the south, but if 50 would have said it, then hell would have froze over. Who is the guy that starts controversy to sell records quote un quote. 50 not Nas. So Nas doesn't beef to destroy careers? Why not? That makes no sense. He wrote Ether in 2001 to destroy Jay-Z's career. Nas isn't that nice if a guy. Many became Nas fans after Ether, when he been in the game for almost 10 years before that song. Beef once again gets an artist the true recognition he should have already had. Nas fans took Nas side, and Vice Versa. However, like this one I knew the lyrical outcome. The problem with a Nas VS. 50, or Jay-Z VS Nas is that politics will come into question. It always came into question. I know you don't care but you won't be able to convince a Jay-Z fan that jay-Z lost. I have to say Jay-Z because people love jay, and hate 50. It's never truly about lyrics in this commercial setting. It' about lyrics when cats is just freestyling on the corner going back and forth. Even the wackest lyricist came come up with something if he takes enough time to write. Nas is the best lyricist in the game right now. I put him with the Rakim's, Kool G Rap's, and Krs-One's. Even 50 knows that. I don't have to listen to a lyrical battle to make that choice lyrically. However much of the people today are conditioned for non-lyrical battles, and just saying a few lines. What we are seeing is two things one. the anti 50 movement means that it could be you in the position against 50, and you will win because of the outcry. Also because of Nas lyrically ability you would also say the same outcome for anyone who challenges. That's what would be unique. No matter the challenger for Nas he would be crowned king, and no matter the opponent of 50, he will be crowned loser. It's what the pubic wants.

I remember Pac dissin Nas, and he never responded. Like you said Pac is a lyricist. He didn't touch that one. Why didn't Nas humble Pac? If anyone needed to be humble it was Pac. It may have saved his life. Yall got to understand Nas is a business man as well, just not as good as Jay, or 50. He is a better lyricist than anyone. My point is I'm from Queens, and I'll defend both artists. One I respect more as a business man, one I respect more as a lyricist. Nas wants to destroy 50, and the public wants 50 destroyed. I'm just saying Nas compromised his way of doing business in the music business as well whether it was for money, or whatever.

Tweety I do agree that 50 knows his competition, and will prepare accordingly for his opponent win or lose.

Nas can win, because more americans hate 5-0 then ever before.

Only thing missing from this divalicious girlrilla is a wig and bright pink lipstick!

This is Ernest Frazier. I told you all that Nas would hit a home run with his new joint. It's an amazing album and I am copping the joint for my collection. The mixtape was hot and some of the joints are classics. I don't care about the title and never have, I only care about the content. No one can hate, call him out, question his credibility or anything. Nas is the best MC along with Jay of this generation. I actually listened to Carter 3 this weekend. It wasn't bad at all. I have to give him some credit. The joint with Busta and that joint about saving hip hop was nice. I give credit where it's due and Weezy hit a home run with this one.

Peace to the real.

ernestmac

Everytime I try to post here, it misses. I'll leave it at this. Lil bro hit the nail on the head. Nas is knocking it out of the park with this newest joint. I told you all before. Who cares about the title, make a hot album and he has.

Peace to the real

Knuckz

50 has been begging for Nas' attention for a while now. He is on his last leg ans Esco is about to send G-Unit tumbling down. Even the hungry 50 was no match for the "fallen" Nas. I don't agree that Nas has fallen, but that is what 50 likes to say.
