Tell Em Why you Mad Porta!

November 23, 2007

Okay I have a few bones to pick.

First off, fuck everyone for not buying Freeway’s Free At Last. I hear it is expected to move ONLY 35,000 copies this week. Free At Last is one of the best hip hop albums of the year. It is definitely better than 50 Cent’s album, and it sells as much as Hurricane Chris? WTF people? It’s a shame that most ignorant hip hop fans (which is most) will not buy an album if it didn’t move units its first week which is absolutely ridiculous. That means Freeway is pretty much assed out. This makes me agree with Saigon when he says that the music industry just isn’t worth it. Even Tony Yayo in his great wisdom figured it out. Good music falls on deaf ears while we complain about how wack Hip Hop is. If we supported good artists then maybe the industry wouldn’t be so wack. Maybe Freeway will do numbers internationally.

sorry Free.. I’m trying…

Talib and Common too… sorry guys.

Jay, if you wouldn’t have made your boss happy (yes even he has a boss) and not taken your album off Itunes then you may have kept your numbers up. a good percentage of record sales are digital these days. His numbers are nothing to sneeze at, but he is the God MC and should do better.

Speaking of King Hov, I am very very disappointed in the MSN broadcast of his concert at the Hammerstein Ballroom in NYC. First off they cut the best part of the show out! Lil Wayne and Jay-Z were on stage TOGETHER performing and Weezy even called Jay “the best rapper alive” in front of Jay’s beloved hometown crowd which is usually the moniker he uses for himself.

Then, they DID NOT edit out Jadakiss’ embarrassing introduction to Rocafella when Jadakiss attempted to do an impromptu performance and Green Lantern didn’t have any of Jada’s songs to play. All in all the concert looked like shit online and it was great live. I know because I was there.

Go learns yourself something people, and keep on The Digital Streets if you give a shit about music….

Okay I’m done… Sorry for the foul language Mom.

Jay-Z Concert at Hammerstein will be Broadcast Online for Free

Starting on November 19, fans can visit music.msn.com/jayz to access the November 11th concert at New York City’s Hammerstein Ballroom for free.

I saw them shooting the concert and I am glad Hov continues to push the envelope and please his fans by broadcasting it for free. I know he’s getting advertising dollars or something. I would…

P.S: I heard the concert at Hammerstein was better than the one at the Apollo last night.   Yes that picture of Hov and Lebron is from the Apollo, not Hammerstein.

This apparently was supposed to be on the album but didn’t make it.  It did make an ill interlude during the American gangster show.
