Dope or Nope 7/30 – Eminem Vs. Mariah & Nick

30 07 2009

Eminem – The Warning
Mariah Carey Obsessed
Throughout Eminem’s career he’s made references to his past relationship with Mariah Carey. On his most recent album Relapse, he wished her Husband Nick Cannon “luck with the fuckin’ whore” on “Bagpipes From Baghdad”. In defense to his wifey, Cannon retaliated verbally about the songs quality and how Em needs to let him and Mariah’s history remain in the past.
Recently Mariah dropped the video for her first single, “Obsessed”; about dudes with obsessive behavior towards women with subliminal’s towards Em. To top it off, she even disguised herself to look Eminem-esque in the music video (pictured above). The video sparked this diss titled “The Warning” where Em goes in on Mariah and Nick.

What’s Beef: Conflict Vs. Charles Hamilton

29 05 2009

conflict
From taking a Soulja Boy comparison as an insult, to referring to Rhymefest in a battle, to airing out his assistant/ladyfriend, it seems like Charles Hamilton doesn’t hold his tongue. With that being said, Charles recently made a reference to the West Coast which caught the attention of my boy Conflict. The Bludivision artist dropped a response track titled “Charlie” going in on Charles Hamilton. The reference was made on Charles Hamilton’s “Crack a Blogger” sampling Em’s “Crack a Bottle”. Con hi-jacks the track for his diss towards Charles.

What’s Beef: Rick Ross Brushes Off 50 Diss, 50 Sends Out a Warning Shot

31 01 2009


Thursday night 50’s “Officer Rickey” premiered on Hot 97 which was his first diss track to Rick Ross and a challenge for Lil’ Wayne. Wayne has yet to respond, but Rick Ross responded the following morning during a radio interview with Angela Yee on Shade45. Not only did he speak on the origins of this “feud”, he also gives 50 48 hours to come with something harder than “Officer Rickey”.

Hit up the full story for the interview and 50’s response.

Takin’ Em Back – 1/30!

30 01 2009

Tha Dogg Pound – New York, New York

This has to be the illest diss video of all time. Snoop and Tha Dogg Pound hit New York where it hurts by not only dissing them on wax, but also putting a new meaning to the phrase stomping grounds. This video even made Jay admit the effect it had on NY when he says “It’s like New York’s been soft ever since Snoop came thru and crushed the buildings”. Mobb Deep and C-N-N responded to this track but of course it didn’t have the impact that “New York, New York” did. They couldv’e easily did a video tearing down Downtown LA or even Randy’s Donuts.





What’s Beef: 50 Cent Vs. Rick Ross

30 01 2009


50 Cent – Try Me (Officer Ricky)

And so it begins! Earlier this week Ross’ street single “Mafia Music” hit the net (unfortunately Blogger took my shit down and did NOT let me know, them and their damn surprises) and Ross makes a reference to 50’s house being burned down by his Babymoms. Fifty, being the villainous artist that he is, thrives off of disses and any subliminal lines there’s no hesitation in him responding. One would think shortly after being exposed as a C.O. and having contradictory lyrics, Ross would keep a low profile from dissing. 50 uses Rick Ross’ prior career as the theme to this diss track and also disses Khaled and calls out Wayne. Thank Rick Ross for help promoting Before I Self Destruct.





What’s Beef: Rhymefest Vs. Charles Hamilton

30 01 2009


Interscope’s latest signee is apparently making a name for himself. From his signature infatuation with Sonic the Hedgehog and the color pink, he’s gaining attention from hip hop artists and it’s audience. Not all of the recognition is positive. First there was the ridiculous beef with Soulja Boy which only lasted for a couple of weeks. After the feud with two obviously incomparable rappers ended, Charles Hamilton acquired some new foes.

What’s Beef: Joe Budden Vs. Saigon Continues…

22 01 2009

Saigon – Pushing Buddens

Earlier this week I posted a blog on hip hop’s latest beef consisting of Joe Budden and Just Blaze artist Saigon (click here to catch up on it). First Joey put out his track in response to Sai talkin’ reckless, then Saigon responded going hard on Joe causing Budden to fire back. The latest in the beef is Saigon’s “Pushing Buddens” where Saigon disses Joe over his own beat (as most rappers do) using “Pump it Up”. Below is a video of Joe Budden and his affiliate Killah BH listening to the latest diss.

What’s Beef: Joe Budden Vs. Saigon

19 01 2009


Only three weeks into 2009, diss tracks have been all over the net. First, 50 sounds off on Lil’ Wayne’s “Lousianimal” which he Weezy subliminally took shots at him. He also throws in Kanye and Oprah into the same diss track titled “Play This on the Radio”.
But one of the more blatant feuds is the Joe Budden and Saigon beef. Instead of dissing in a subliminal fashion like many other MC’s do, Joe Budden not only name drops in the diss track, but even puts Saigon’s name in the title. Saigon then responds getting personal with Joey, calling his son gay and his girl a jumpoff. Let’s recap the history of the beef to cause Sai to spaz like that, and give the diss tracks a listen.

News: Kanye Explains His Heartbreak, Eminem Has a Relapse, Ne-Yo Bows Out of Beef

Kanye Hosts Listening Party for 808’s & Heartbreaks, and Announces Next Album

This past Tuesday, Kanye West threw a listening party for the upcoming 808’s & Heartbreak album. Ye hooked up with Italian artist Vanessa Beecroft (who co-signed 808’s…, stating it touched her “personal life”) to add an artistic touch to his party. The scenery was made up of up to 50 nude model chicks which was contributed by Beecroft. Jay-z, Will.I.Am., Rick Ross, and Mos Def were amongst some of the guests that were in the building.
So now about the album, there were rumors that the album will be in full auto-tune, and that is true. Kanye expressed his love for the auto-tune sound which helped influence him to do a full album using the auto-tune. Kanye also stated that this album is “pop”. Here’s what Mr. West had to say about peoples opinion on the Pop genre “People think pop is bad, but Michael Jackson was pop and who can compare to him?” Kanye also had this to say about the latest project “I don’t give a fuck if it’s hot or not, it’s from the heart… Would you judge a grandmother’s love? Give it two-and-a-half mics out of five?” Kanye felt it was important that this album was released this year and he also has another album dropping in June where he may be rapping or singing.

This sounds like it will definitely be an interesting album. The fact that Kanye is doing what he feels with his music and speaking from his heart is excellent. That’s a true musician for you. Instead of making music for the paper the artist is supposed to give you them. 808’s & Heartbreak will be in stores Nov. 25th!

Eminem Preps New Album

It’s been 4 years since Eminem has put out an album (excluding the Re-Up Mixtape and The Greatest Hits album), and he’s returning to the rap scene with his upcoming album “Relapse”. There were numerous rumored titles such as “King Mathers” and “Empack”, and here is what Eminem cleared up the title stating “There’s a lot of fake albums and a lot of bullshit album titles floating around out there.” “I just want to tell everybody the real album title is Relapse.” A new Eminem joint titled “I’m Having a Relapse” leaked this week (click here to get it).
Shady/Aftermath is pushing the “three headed monster campaign” promoting 50’s Before I Self Destruct, Em’s Relapse, & Dre’s highly anticipated “Detox” Eminem is ready to release his autobiography, The Way I Am, with Relapse rumored to drop in 2009.

Ne-Yo Vs. Young Berg Comes to an End (thank God)

Random. Recently Ne-Yo sat down with Big Boy’s Morning Show on Power 106, and of course they asked him a set of funny yet random questions. Big Boy asked Ne-Yo questions about groupies he’s taken down and who would he slap if he had the chance to. Without any hesitation, Ne-yo said Young Berg. When asked why, Ne-Yo said he feels Berg is unoriginal and he’s copying Wayne & Ye’s style on his track “The Business”. As soon as Berg got the word, here’s what he had to say:

Ne-Yo responded ending the beef. Check the vid below:





Dope or Nope 10/10 – Uncle Murder & Jay-z DJ Khaled & Fat Joe Diss (Supposedly)

10 10 2008


Roc-a-Fella Brooklynaires Uncle Murder & Jay-z bring you the “Untitled” track which is rumored to be a diss towards Fat Joe and Dj Khaled. No word on if this is an official diss track, but someone of Hov’s caliber shouldn’t even be beefing with dudes like Khaled and Fat Joe.
