whatever some more LOL


YouTube - 2pac - Tupac Part TIme Mutha

YouTube - Ghostface-Child's Play

YouTube - BLACK Rob - Jasmine feat Carl Thomas -- Black Rob was the ****!!!! he was one of hip-hop's greatest storytellers...and an overall sick MC, even though one could consider his rhymes basic. unfortunately, he wa sa little too hoody. he also fell victim to the 'Bad Boy Record Deal', and recently was sent to prison for 7 years after robbing a woman in a hotel for $6000 in jewellry and $3000 cash or something. lol. he was sick though

YouTube - BLACK Rob - I Love You Baby Feat P Diddy



two albums you should check out:

Sticky Fingaz - Black trash: the autobiography of kirk jones

AND

Prince Paul - A Prince Among Thieves

both these albums are cinematic. The former is about a dude who gets out of jail....the latter about a dude who has MC aspirations. Thats all I'ma tell ya. Download those albums. classic stuff

alright. there's Black Rob, Shyne, G-Dep, Mase, 112, The Lox, Biggie even.

apparently their record deals were ridiculous. **** like not owning their own publishing, ridiculously stupid advances (G-Dep once said he was given a $300 advance LOL). Black Rob was similar I believe. it's basically because Puff'sa business man and some of these cats were straight ghetto dudes who don't even read the contract. just straight up sign it. they get a bit of upfront cash...some cars and ****.

so somewhere down the line (The Lox figured this out after their first album) they realize they're supposed to be making WAY more money (especially of PLATINUM selling albums).

I know that up until 2005 P.Diddy still owned the lox's publishing.

obviously it's not just Bad Boy Records....this has always been going. it's just hilarious (and sad) that Black Rob finds himself in a situation where he needs to rob $3000 or something of somebody.

Martini is my favorite one in this post, because the three verse are true stories.
Ignore the outro/credits. Haha.

Their songs aren't always particular fun or happy, but ImmortalTechnique can tell amazing stories through their music. I can't listen to them often because some of their songs depress me but they tell some of the best stories i've ever heard.
