XXX Hip Hop: Raw and UnCut: THIS WEEK IN HIP HOP 2/11/2011- WTF MAN: "OKAY OKAY OKAY...FIRST OFF i want to say that if YOU are looking for a soft spoken, 'respect the artist', dont say what you really feel blog..."

THIS WEEK IN HIP HOP 2/11/2011- WTF MAN

OKAY OKAY OKAY...FIRST OFF i want to say that if YOU are looking for a soft spoken, "respect the artist", dont say what you really feel blog....then  my friend...YOU  ARE TRULTY MISTAKEN!! Because here at XXXHIPHOP RAW AND UNCUT,  we are just that, RAW AND UNCUT- WE NOT LIKE Prodigy Vs Saigon, WE HOLD NO PUNCHES!~!  So with that said, let us begin:

1)  A pair of Lone Star lovelies are taking aim at rapper JIM JONES for using video of their topless frolicking in his "Summertime" video. In papers filed in Manhattan Supreme Court, Sharie Johnson and Samantha Stotts say they didn't give the rapper permission to use their half-naked images in his video, and they want the clip yanked from YouTube immediately. (New York Post)



***OKAY OKAY- I can understand why SOME people may be offended but i mean (let me quote Mr.Lover on this *shout out to ED LOVER) C'MON SON!!! aint no titties hurt nobody and it aint like ANYONE  PAYS attention to JIM JONES anyway. So im sure the 2,000 people who seen the video didnt care lol. I mean COME ONE it aint like Jimmy got the money to give anyway. I mean WE ARE  talking about an artist who hasnt had a hit in goin on 5 YEARS- and last i checked people werent lining up around the block to see a HALF ASSED "Ballin" performance and the now ANCIENT Dip Set single "Salute". And lets not talk about "BYRD GANG RECORDS" i know girl scout troups with lemonade stands that have recouped more than them #POW. bUT YEAH, leave Jimmy alone and PLEASE, PLEASE, ANYONE WITH A FEW GRAND TO SPARE PLEASE BOOK JIM FOR A SHOW, HE NEEDS IT.

2)The BIRDMAN took to his Twitter page this week to specifically quote jay's subliminal. We first heard the phrase "Baby Money" on KANYE WEST and JAY-Z's talked about "H•A•M" single and immediately figured it was a shot at LIL WAYNE and Birdman from the oh-so-sneaky Jigga. Well, it looks like Stunna has finally acknowledged Jay's tap at the Cash Money Billionaires. "we gonna keep spending 'baby money' ...billionaire minds stay tuned." After betting $1 million on the Green Bay Packers in this past Sunday's Super Bowl, YMCMB's own won the seven-figure bet as the Packers took home the Vince Lombardi Trophy. Great! Baby's a million dollars richer! Maybe Forbes can tell us what that puts his net worth at now. Oh wait.. (Complex)



*OKAY OKAY:  FIRST AND FOREMOST we ARE NOT, i repeat ARE NOT going to sit here and try and figure out who has more money between JAY-Z and LIL'WAYNE and BIRDMAN (wait, wait, we cant even say LIL WAYNE, because thats BIRDMAN'S money too) because Baby's money to Jay's is like SILK THE SHOCKER's attempt at comeback, NOT EVEN CLOSE. #IMJUSSAYIN i cant recall seeing Baby on FORBES too many times. And lets face FACTS - BIRDMANS wealth is nothing but LIL'WAYNE, HOT BOYS, JUVENILE, B.G, DRAKE AND NICKI MINAJ hardwork. THESE are the artists putting in WORK creating music, touring, restless nights- and all the OLD MAN with TATOOS ON HIS FACE (grow the fuck up) does is sit back and collect checks and then brag abt the wealth he has accumulated by ROYALLY FUCKING his artists ..but thats another story. LONG STORY SHORT- until Baby can make 11 #1 MULTI PLATINUM selling albums- THEN- he can talk that shyt, but we all know thats like CHRIS BROWN running a Shelter for battered women, IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN!!

3) JA RULE appeared in court on February 9 to respond of illegal possession of weapons. The sentence, however, has been postponed to March. Jeffrey Atkins, mostly known for his stage name JA RULE, faced court on February 9 to understand when his first day of prison will be. However, the rapper was told he has to wait until March 9 to know when he will have to surrender to police authorities for his 2 year sentence. (Suite 101)



**TO BE HONEST, WHO GIVES A FUCK, I JUS SAID "JA RULE" SO HE WOULD FEEL LIKE SOMEBODY STILL CARED. Long story short, your a washed up artist who couldnt sell another record to save your life...there is NO FUCKIN EXCUSE for a 7 year Hiatus, NONE. Go do that 20 months, write some raps, and make an ATTEMPT at a comeback, emphesis on ATTEMPT. #NEEEEEEEEEEEXT

4) Nude photos of rumored hip-hop couple DIDDY and CASSIE have leaked online and show the two artists being overly intimate with one another.



***OOO WOW, if ANYONE and i mean ANYONE is suprised by this i will slap THE SHIT out of you. C'MON DIDDY we all know them "LAST TRAIN TO PARIS" sells aint doin too good, and CASSIE's "Electro Love" been pushed back SO LONG even SAIGON got mad lol- so this has PUBLICITY STUNT written all over it. DIDDY started this project in 2009 people, now here we are 2 YEARS, 5 FAILED SINGLES, AND 172,000 COPIES LATER- BOOOOOOM- the nude photo's leak smh. SHAME ON YOU PUFF- for ONE, u just started to prostate exams last year (DUDE IS LIKE 41)- and CASSIE, chick just was legal to drink a few years ago (CHICK LIKE 24), DAMN DIDDY, she old enuff to b yo DAUGHTER nigga!!! O well, Puff told us "He won't stop" so i can only imagine what its go be like when he 50 here PRETTY SOON, well, until next time, imma go buy 2 copies of "LAST DIDDY ALBUM EVER HOPEFULLY"..OOPS...I MEAN "LAST TRAIN TO PARIS" to help them sales out.

FIRST WEEK SALES: 13,360
SALES TO DATE: 56,000

** IM NOT GONNA FRONT, i used to NOT BE ABLE TO STAND  Soulja Boy, and on MANY tracks I STILL cant. BUT dude had really stepped into himself since coming of age. The album in its ENTIRETY wasnt that great- but I BELIEVE  INTERSCOPE RECORDS dropped the ball with this one. Had they lead the album promotion with "MEAN MUG" FEAT. 50 CENT and brought "Speakers going hammer" as a follow up the album woulda had a better look. I mean SOULJA BOY gettin his show $$$ but the sales are definitley an embarrassment. #JUSTSAYIN. ALBUM RATING: (1-10)... 3.5

LIL WAYNE "I AM NOT A HUMAN BEING": 733,000
KANYE WEST "MY BEAUTIFUL DARK TWISTED FANTASY"  999,000

Singles: "Beamer Benz Or Bentley", "Any Girl", "Start It Up", "I Dont Deserve You"
FIRST WEEK SALES: 45,000
SALES TO DATE: 82,000

IM GONNA SAY SATRIGHT UP, that LLOYD BANKS as AN ARTIST did EVERYTHING he was supposed to do. RADIO PRESENCE? (CHECK), GOLD SINGLE- BEFORE THE DEAL WAS SIGNED? (CHECK), CONSTANT INTERNET/SHOW PRESENCE LEADING UP TO RELEASE? (CHECK). CAPITOL/EMI AS A COMPANY DROPPED THE BALL. FIRST OFF "bEAMER Benz Or Bently" already garnered the attention back to Banks- INSTEAD of a CORNBALL single like "Any Girl", THE MAJORITY of the budget shoulda went toward pushing the SINGLE and VIDEO for "Start It Up"- HAD THAT record got the syndication it should have the numbers would have been in the 100,000's the first week. BUT OVERALL this album is a CLASSIC in its own right- LLOYD BANKS really came with it for this project. 82,000 or 820,000- i still fucks wit G-UNIT!!

GHOSTFACE KILLAH "APOLLO KIDS"

*** SMH, DAMN GHOSTFACE...9 ALBUMS LATER AND STILL NO ONE CARES. How this man manages to stay on DEF JAM is AMAZING to me. I mean, with 23,000 in sales there is NO WAY i repeat NO WAY this man has seen a royalty check. LETS BE REAL. gHOSTFACE is has been on the DECLINE since the RISE of Wu tang. out of 9 ALBUMS, only 2 OF THEM have had RIAA certifications...smh....Ghostface couldnt find GOLD if it was in the mountains back during the Gold Rush. ON TOP OF THAT. he's about to be 41 in MAY...IF DEF JAM dont drop him, his heart and blood sugar will lmao. #FACT if your name is NOT METHOD MAN, nobody cares about WU TANG.
