    Lil Boosie and Yung Joc Zoomin All The Way To The Bank
    Saturday. 10.14.06 10:39 pm
    First off, I have to apologize to my girl Chyna White for not including her in yesterday's post "So Who's Really The Baddest Chick IN Atlanta" -- shit skipped my mind. But since we're on the subject, where has that Chyna White album been? I know Chyna was locked up for a minute, but I heard that the album was on the way a long time ago.

    The "White Out" mixtape was decent but we're waiting on that next installment. I still have "Shake My World" with Lil Scrappy on deck but damn, shawty?

    Also, I just holla'd at Lil Boosie who has a new album "Boosie Bad Azz" set to drop on October 24. The first track "Zoom" features none other than your boy Yung Joc. The album is Boosie's first on a major and he says that it's official from top to bottom (18 tracks).

    (Click here to see the video)
    The video just premiered recently and is already No. 12 on the BET countdown, so expect big things.

    "Joc just sent me a cool 16 and we hooked it up from there. He said he had been waitin on me to drop for a minute and then he sent me his verse and that was it." -- Lil Boosie

    Age in Hip-Hop: Bridging the Gap
    Friday. 10.13.06 5:40 am


    Does anybody recall that Cam'ron diss song against Jay-Z where he says:

    "You talk bout you a 80's baby... You 37 years old, you was born in 1968..."

    That made me wonder: When should age make a rapper hang his mic up? I mean, even if you can still sell records, once you turn 35, are you just irrelevant to a Hip-Hop audience? That's what BET, MTV and mainstream media suggest, as well as a host of 18 to 20-something year-old artists who seem to revel in their youth as they disrespect their elders with lines like:

    "You 38 and you still rappin'? Ugghh!" - The Game, "It's Ok (One Blood)"

    I mean, damn: is the grandfather clock really ticking for rappers? Why not singers? Or rockers? Or any other genre of music? It seems to me that all of the really good rappers [even today] are 30+ years-old: Kanye, Eminem, Jay-Z and the list goes on.

    I fully understand that Hip-Hop is so exciting because it's cutting edge, urban and youthful, but, the older I get, the more I realize that youth is truly a mentality and not a physical attribute. I know 20 year-old women who are lazy as hell with bad backs, and they think that everything in life has happened to them already. On the other hand, I have met 45 year-old women with legs like Tina Turner and asses like Beyonce who have unparalleled ambition. I've seen 18 year-old rappers give up after two years of shopping a demo and say, "This some bullshit. I gotta make a mil by the time I'm 22." I've also seen Rick Ross win because of his 12-year, everyday "Hustlin." Is this why more and more rappers prefix their names with words like "Lil" and "Young"? I ain't dissin', but damn... Are we being more immature than youthful at this point?

    Where did those one million Public Enemy fans go? I just finished a tour with A Tribe Called Quest. In one month, we rocked crowds of 3,500+ people a night in over 17 different cities. Whose marketing towards them? If they'll buy a $40 ticket for a Rhymefest/ATCQ show, I'm sure they'll buy a $9 album from Best Buy.

    Oh my God... I just realized this is the first time that Hip-Hop has ever had a generation gap.

    The Wu-Tang fans hate the Jeezy fans. Kinda like your Pops saying, "That's not real music!" So, now, the young strike back by referring to a golden age Hip-Hop head as old. You know... out-of-touch a/k/a backpacker. However, this also seems a bit contradictory when you think about the fact that Dr. Dre is still on and poppin', Ice Cube sold 500,000 records independently and LL Cool J might still be good for another one.

    All I'm saying is, at some point, we have to stop the age discrimination and focus more on good music, which is sorely lacking in today's climate. By the way, I'm 29.

    What up Fest? I feel you bruh, these youngins don't respect the foundation that's why hip hop is full of garbage. Young cats don't know about diggin, or even black jazz greats like Miles & Coltrane. It's due to a lack of wanting to know. In the era we came up in, we were thursty for knowledge & to be original. Nowadays these kids just turn on the TV and immulate everything they see. From young girls whoring them selves out with tight little clothes, or these young never touched a gun or crack vile gangsta wannabe's. It all starts at home, if the parent allows a child to be absorbed by the Tel Lie Vision & gives no true guidance that child is pretty much doomed! My solution is for cats like you & me to educate through the music & inspire the youth to be truth seekers!

    What up 'Fest. I'll be the first to tell you, the answer is "NO" as in no it doesn't matter what age you are in my opinion. If you can still wreck a mic stand and you 50, by all means do it. It just goes to show you the state of mind that hip hop is in. I never understood why our music is the only music that lives by this. I mean, you look at other genres, how many times have you heard of a "Rolling Stones" or "U2" concert NOT selling out? These guys have to be in the 40-50-60 age range. Ozzie Osborn? The dude can hardly walk and will still wreck a concert like it's nothing. So why is it when it comes to OUR music, fans are like "ah man you old, move on,"but will be the first to scream "Grown & Sexy" (I really hate that phrase). I'll tell you why, because the artist are still trying to live their youth. It seems to me that this hip hop makes them feel younger. Listen to "Legend of the Fall Offs" on that new Busta. Most of these old artists aren't talking about topics that suit them or the people that grew up listening to them. They try to keep with the latest trends and that's where they get caught up. Everybody gives Ice Cube a hard time because he's "changed," but really, what emcee can be taken seriously if they're 35+ years talking about things they were doing 10-15 years ago? It's like that "old man at the club" not that he's old, just too damn old to be in this 18 and older club.

    I grew up listening to HIP HOP(Wu, Boot Camp, Hiero etc) so I'll always be a fan no matter what. I'm 25 years old, still a youngin in the eyes of some, but ask me what's in my cd case (yeah, I still BUY cd's too!). You're not going to see too much of the new age stuff, because most of it is what I call "life filler," just stuff that's out there until a real hip hop banger comes along, and even THAT'S starting to get few and far in between. You can keep your Bow Wow's and Young Dro's, I'm riding with my ATCQ's, MF DOOM's and Ghostface's, got it? Now, YOU talk to ME.

    I agree 100% on what my man Rhymefest is saying....age ain't nuthin but a number (after all, ain't that what a young artist in the hip hop/r & b world (r.i.p. Aaliyah) said?)...These young bucks nowadays don't recognize the essence of hip hop and how it got to where it's at today...Myself, I thank artists like KRS, Big Daddy Kane, Rakim, Marley Marl, NWA, (the list goes on) for influencing artists like Jay Z, Nas, Wu Tang, OutKast, etc...then you got their offsprings like most of the young artists that are out now like Lupe, Rick Ross, Jeezy, Game, etc.....now like 5 years down the road, would those young upcoming artists would like to be labeled "old school" or "washed up"??? Hip hop is hip hop, since when age had a relevence? Mic skills don't see age, neither does production skills. If the music is hot, should age matter? Wake up young world!!!

    too $hort is 40 years old n "Blow the whistle" aint even his last album. Not too mention Ice-T who's 46 n droppin a new album "gangsta rap". I dont think theres a genration gap, its more jus the age has become more stretched, Rappers are lastin longer and commin in earlier therefore u have bow wow at 18 with 5 albums to his name, n some niggas at 30 with they debut soon commin. Im 16 years old n i have full respect for the OG's and pioneers, although we youngstaz are in a rush to come up(i am one who wants to brake through b4 i turn 19) I am happy for dukes to rap aslong as there bringin hot shit, but when they do go sour, someone has to be there to tell em, jus so happens its the young niggaz.

    Good blog topic 'Fest...funny this is the second time this topic came up on SOHH today. In reality, people who complain about a lack of lyricism in today's hip hop should NOT compain about the age of the rappers spittin' today. If Jay Z has accumulated enough experience and knowledge in his long life and chooses to share through his music, I'd let him speak!!! (if what I want is lyrical content).
    Simply put, more older rappers have a wealth of topics to speak about while the young'ns haven't quite diversified from the usual topics.
    Side note: Unfortunately, after hearing Jay-Z's first two "leak" tracks its apparent that age hasn't helped dude's corny ass - his favorite/only topic is still his own greatness...redundant

    Right on point my friend...and it's funny cause the older cats fall into it too...I was JUST telling a friend last night that Jay-Z is genius for calling himself Young Hov...Dude is NOT Young!! But when he says it, you forget that he's 37!!! And I'm not hating...I'm 29 myself, and still hoping to make my mark one day...I really mean it when I say that is a genius move on his part...he know's that these young cats think 37 is washed up...A lot of them have parents that age...if people think you are young or closer to their age, they feel they can relate to you...I'll never lie about my age, or throw young in front...but I understand...I understand.

    I feel you a little but really do you remember when you were 18 or 21 and thought that 27 or 28 was ancient. You can't hate on the new generation for having that same attitude. I'm 27 now and when I was growing up I didn't wanna hear the furious five, kool moe dee or even LL because at the time they seemed old as hell and out of touch with me. Shit to some of my homies LL still ain't cool. But that's beside the point. Maybe the older heads don't relate to Dipset, D4L, and Southern Hip Hop because it isn't for them. When we were coming up the holy trinity was BIG, Pac and Hov. Before it was KRS, Rakim and Kane. Now it's TI, Wayne and Jeezy. Every generation has their own preference. Plus older fans don't buy hip hop anymore. Cube just dropped, Ghostface dropped and Busta dropped a hot joint but how many "true hip hop fans" went out and got those cds. It's music out there for all ages of hip hop fans. It's just that when you're 18 you think you're invincible and you don't wanna hear all that knowledge dropping. 18 year old white kids don't buy the rolling stones cds their parents do. So maybe someone should start marketing old school hip hip to old school fans. Man, reality is nobody is waiting for a fugees reunion, the next cubin linx or fat joe to drop busta proved that. Dudes need to bow out gracefully and play to their audience like Cube did or fall to the way side.

    Your' right about the 18 year old rapper shopping a demo for 2 years and giving up. Thats what I love about my boy, he been doing it for over 6 years and he still does it. Age shouldn't matter, as long as you love what you do.

    Music is ever-evolving. If it wasn't it'd be the same old sh*t. As long as you can reinvent yourself while staying true to yourself, and connect with your audience (whoever it may be) you'll be in the game for a long time. This goes for emcees, producers, and just about anyone else who creates. Innovate don't trace. There are things I hate and love about the old and new school of hip hop. I love how the old school created music that was real to them for the fact of making music and not cheese, however I hate how stubborn they are and how quick they are to say what is hip hop and what isn't. They hate the people going left when they were once those people. The new kats are open to fresh ideas as to what hip hop is. The sad part is, a lot are dumbing down their music, and the ones in it for the loot are following because it's whats currently selling. Regardless of age, just do you! Oh and on a side note, not everyone was born to rap and make beats! Why does everyone think they can? There are more artists than fans.

    and to 'bridge the gap'... let some of these older rappers take a step back and look at themselves when they were 18-21, and instead of hating on the new generation, try to guide them into what some of those old heads have become: grown ass MEN.

    Yes the clock is ticking for rappers and r&b acts. Why? They are doing songs for the moment-getting paid now. There's hardly any acts doing quality work with substance. I.e. Bob Marley's work is still relevant to this day and he dropped out in '81.
    There's nothing wrong with partying and b.s. but how long can you do that when there are newer generations with newer voices coming up. You make quality music such as yourself Rhyme and ATCQ and your fan base grows with you, cops albums and finds the venue. They will literally grow with you-despite promotions or record label.

    Like Hotep said earlier and I hate to be co-signing so blatantly, but like Hotep said, knowadays so-called current music is devoid of sampling that comes from diggin' in the crates. One of the few issues that kept the hip-hop[/rap music scene alive (when Republicans were trying fiercely to ban the artform and anything to do with it) was the fact that long forgotten artists' music was being revitalized and introduced to upcoming generations who would otherwise would not have ever been introduced to timeless grooves that are innumerable and yet the back-bone of the hip-hop upon which today's rappers like young Jeezy's fames are built. Age truly means nothing because Jeezy is, Young Jeezy has got to be 40 years-old, yet he and others of the same careless genre act their shoe size rather than their age. The sensibility that comes with age (even from rappers that were scaling the age-old mountain of aging in the the 1990s) is what allowed me to embrace and come to love hip-hop as more than just a passing phase, but a milestone of knowledge that gave me an edge on older folk years ago.

    Older folk feed the economy of young crack-dealers when they should be teaching their dealers otherwise about having to sharpen their scope on life so they won't have to sell crack all of their entire lives. So you see age means nothing when you look at it from an objective standpoint. Dumb old crackheads (that continue to be apart of the exploits that become the inspiration of young crackdealers that feel their way of life is the best and livest way to live) and youngsters that never change their drug-dealing, big white t-shirt- ways nullify age as being any reason to count a person out of the rap game.

    May infinite knowledge continue to renew the truly wise mind. Peace Out.

    WHOA!!!!!!!! I need to start reading the other SOHH blogs. I totally didn't see this one. Dare Lewis and I were having a conversation about this, and we were talking about what it would take to bring New York back. I guess the quote I got from Remy Ma and the same exact quote from Cam (the one you used) made it look like I was swagger jacking your blog, but I wasn't. My bad.
    I said in today's blog that older cats (not all, most) need to move aside and let the younger cats do them, but I'm thinking now, that we most definitely need the old school influence to keep rap music quality, but some of the older cats themselves just can't seem to pull it off. Either its because the younger crowd isn't familiar with the "real" style of hip-hop because of the radio playing that garbage... well I can go on and on so im gonna cut it off. But yes, I'll say all in all that I can't totally agree with Rem, but some of these older cats hit 30 something and become washed up so with that said, SOME need to leave the mic alone after a certain age.

    I don't think there's as big of an age gap as we think. I think it's the influx of new fans to hip-hop that are the difference. Hip-hop used to be made for us in the hood, because we were the main consumers. Then white Amerikkka became the biggest consumers, but at least they wanted what they thought the hood wanted. When a rapper like say, Vanilla Ice got exposed, he was through, because the hood said he was through. Nowadays in the post Pac/Big era, rappers pander to the people in the suburbs, and don't even really care about the hood at all. I don't know too many people over 20 who listen to hip-hop mainly anymore. BET is seen as something that dumb kids & suburbanites watch. Ten years ago, there was mainstream stuff for everybody Pac, Big, Tribe, Nas, even Ras Kass put out a major label debut. Now, there's no diversity in hip-hop. I think had Def Jam marketed that Lupe song "Kick Push" the right way, that could've energized the "real" hip-hop buying base, but they f*cked it up. That southern snap/crunk stuff is only good for clubs with big booty girls. That's why nobody's selling this year. One platinum artist for 2006? That probably hasn't happend since Run-DMC were the only ones going platinum. Hip-hop aint dead, but it's damn close.

    i agree with u, fest. I'm a 19 yr old white-rapper, whos had meetings with execs at columbia records and atlantic, and ive performed in alot of showcases and competitions and havent really had too much respect. and im doin REAL HIP HOP. i did a showcase last night, Melle Mel was there, which was fuckin crazy man. none of these other dudes there could have even pointed him out. he said that dudes gotta come with somethin different than everything they see on tv...but the guy that won the showcase didnt stand out at all, i dont even remember what he did or what it sounded like. so, ive thought to myself, "how long can i go thru this bullshit before they look at me like im an old white dude still tryna make it???" but after thinking alot, it doesnt matter, as much as i love hip hop, or as much as any other artist loves hip hop, we should always do it until we die. the older dudes in the game can set the trend right now, just keep comin out with new shit. look at DOOM, Q-Tip, Dre, Ice Cube, Eminem, Rakim, Big Daddy Kane, etc.....

    Alicia Keys will be able to sell out concerts 25 years from now. Look at the content, why wouldn't she? What she sings about will still be relevent! Gospel acts don't sell nearly the amount of CDs upon release, but Donnie McClurkin is still sellin' 'We Fall Down', because although it wasn't relevent to some, it WILL become relevent to everyone at some point. Hip Hop has to take notice, and radio should allow more relevent rap to hit the airwaves. Be blessed...

    I, too am sick of this bullshit "young man's game attitude in Hip-Hop. These young fools have no idea how much they are shortchanging themselves with that shit. They are pretty much giving themselves an expiration date. Just look at that SOHH NYC post ("CLEAN HOUSE"), where the fool sites a quote from REMI MA of all people as an example of why old fools need to quit. "All rappers who is over thirty should not rap. I think there should be an age limit. I got five more years to go..." This after her album bombed and the only hit she ever had (as a guest in Fat Joe's "Lean Back") not doing enough to make the album sell. People always blirt out 2pac's "old niggaz tryin' to advance" line, but I keep asking myself if these same people would have the same respect for 'Pac if were still alive (by the way, he'd have been 34!)

    By the way, SMOKY: Republicans weren't the only ones trying to ban Hip-Hop. Demacrats have made just as many efforts to ban rap. You know those PARENTAL ADVISORY stickers? That was the bright idea of Al Gore's wifey, Tipper Gore, who often targeted Ice T and the 2 Live Crew in her attempts to stifle free speech. Neither party can be trusted.

    Spoken like a true hip hop head. I feel the same way. Being that this is not just music, it's a culture, a culture in which most of us grew up in and is pretty much all we know, what are the older heads supposed to do? Hip Hop is who I am, are you saying I should no longer participate because I'm 34? It was more than just a fad to me, more than just a phase, it is me and I am hip hop. I will be hip hop until the day I die, and I will continue to criticize those that don't respect it as a culture and an art form. I will criticize those that don't do their best to preserve hip hop's integrity. Hip Hop is soul and the soul never dies. Shout outs to Rhymefest for continuing to be the voice of reason.

    HIP HOP CHARTS:Ludacris Shakes His Money Maker, Monica's On His Tail, Rick Ross Looks From Afar
    Friday. 10.13.06 5:35 am



    Thursday - October 12, 2006 by Rebecca "Tracie J." Murphy
    Ludacris

    In this week's Hip-Hop Charts Ludacris takes the number 1 spot, Monica lands in the top 10 in her debut week and newcomer Rick Ross trails behind.

    Holding that top spot this week is Ludacris, slipping five seats to take No. 6. The ball is still rolling for the ATL rapper, as the numbers for this week read off at 112,600. "Money Maker" is still on the go, as the total digits for Release Therapy stand at 422,400.

    Debuting on the charts at No. 8 this week is Monica. The leading single, "Every Time the Beat Drops," has received top video rotation, but hasn't snapped and popped Monica's fourth album above 100K. This week, Makings of Me sits tight at 92,900.

    Slightly moving three positions on The Hip-Hop Charts this week is Rick Ross, sitting tight at No. 37. Port of Miami has been on the scene for 9 weeks, finishing off its total digits at 522,000. This week, "Push It" has pushed out 25,600 copies.

    Falling twenty-five seats this week is Chingy, breaking the slip at No. 38. This week, the STL rapper has finished off his week with 25,000 units sold, bringing the total for Hoodstar to a bricked 137,200.

    Taking the No. 51 position this week is Gnarls Barkley. Gnarls have been bangin' it out consistently, as St. Elsewhere stands only steps away from the one million mark. This week, the duo have made off with 19,000 copies, with the total finishing off at 984,700.

    Up next is Young Dro, falling fifteen slots to land at No. 63. This week Dro has moved 15,600 discs, bringing the total to 234,600.

    Barely making a debut on the charts this week is Unk, taking a beat down at No. 109.

Despite frequent video spins, Unk has made off with only 10,030 units.

    On the R&B side of things, Robin Thicke debuts in the pits, Sleepy Brown follows suit, Justin Timberlake continues the saga, Janet Jackson stays in the top ten, Fergie slows down, Beyonce slips and Danity Kane tumble.

    Who Really Is The Baddest Chick In Atlanta?
    Friday. 10.13.06 5:18 am
    We pay a bunch of attention to the male artists in the game out here, but who really is hip hop's boss female in the city right now? Is it....

    1) Rasheeda - Former Big Cat Records veteran pimpstress; Strictly independent with MAJOR looks though

    2) Diamond and Princess - They have skills, but where ya' been? "Rock Yo Hips" is the first real noise I've heard in a while. But damnit Diamond, you get sexier by the day, I saw you at The Dirty's.

    3) Ms. B'Havin - "I Know You See It" was one of the hottest tracks this year.
    4) Da Brat - Does she still hold the crown off of previous merits?

    5) Shawnna -Lyrically nobody does it better, but what's up with the lack of album sales? Does that count against her?

    And I know there's a grip of ladies on the rise like Lady Mobb, L.A. Hood and Kat... Don't worry, we see you shining.

    And did anybody anybody get a chance to catch the Pre-Dirty Awards Block Party/Concert featuring BME? Nah, I didn't think so...'cause there was hardly nobody there -- I would guess less than 100 people came out to see BoHagen, Crime Mob, and Trillville rip the stage. Damn, I remember a time when half of Atlanta would have came to get crunk with BME, especially for FREE. What's up with that?

    Nevertheless, Scrappy, Jon, Crime Mob and the rest of the fam made up for things big time at the actual show. True dat, and on a good BME note, Lil Scrappy's "Money In the Bank" is quickly gaining momentum throughout the country. He's got a hit on his hands now.

    Controversial R. Kelly Sex Case Finally Goes To Trial
    Friday. 10.13.06 5:16 am

    WAIST DEEP DVD - IN STORES NOW
    R Kelly

    Over four years after initially being arrested and charged, R&B superstar R. Kelly is finally set to stand trial beginning this Friday (October 13) on multiple child pornography charges.

    R. Kelly (born Robert Kelly) is set to stand trial in Illinois' Cook County Court on 14 counts of child pornography stemming from a video tape released in February of 2002 by an unknown source and sent to the Chicago Sun-Times. The video allegedly shows the Grammy Award-winning crooner engaging in sex with an underage female. Cook County Judge Vincent Gaughan will be presiding over the case.

    The video allegedly features Kelly with the then 14 year-old niece of Sparkle, one of the singer's former artists and proteges. Since his arrest, Kelly has vigorously denied that the man in the video is actually him. The alleged victim and her parents have also publicly denied that she is the person on the tape. The video, which was widely bootlegged and made available to the public, furthered wide spread debate and opinion on whether or not the man in the video was indeed Kelly.

    Indicted in June of 2002, R. Kelly was initially facing 21 counts but seven were later dropped.

    The R&B thug also faced 12 counts of child pornography in Polk County, Florida in January of 2003 after police searched the singer's home and found a digital camera containing 12 images of an underage female. Three of the images were said to show Kelly involved in a sexual act, but those charges were later dropped after a judge ruled that the evidence was seized illegally.

    Be sure to check out SOHH's exclusive coverage of the R. Kelly trial, starting tomorrow, October 13th.

    * Im going to first say that lets put aside that fact that he makes music that people love or he is an icon in RnB. The only issue we should be focusing on is that he has potentially engaged in an sexual act with a minor. We should be protecting our kids in
