1. The Kiss Of Death...Pause
Now at this point, y'all should have "You Won't Believe What Bulldog Told Me" embedded into your brains, right? How many more times do I have to continue to be perfecto before I can get the proper respect? Alllllllready? That's right, even before a solid 48 hours passed from last week's Pulse Report posting, my point was once again proven when Jay-Z "responded" (yes, he did) to
Soundscan Killer 50 Cent at last weekend's American Music Awards. Wait, y'all didn't get the invoice?
"What's up, what's up," Jay said in his acceptance speech. "Well, I wanna thank New York for being a great muse and I wanna thank everybody outside of New York that got inspired by the record because it's about inspiration, it's about a journey. You know, I come from Marcy Projects -- I wanna thank all the fans that connected with the record, peace and love. Men lie, women lie but numbers don't! [laughs]"
LMFAO!!! I have had 42, maybe even 43 disputes about this sh*t right heeere with peeps saying Jay was just shootin' the sh*t and wasn't talking about homie. F*ck outta here! LMFAO. That was an indirect diss and y'all know it. A "diss" label is a bit extreme, let's just say Jay made sure to let 5-0 know homie ain't on his 2003 bullsh*t anymore, whatcha think Fifty?
"He said that before," Fif explained to DJ Green Lantern. "I didn't really take that as a disrespect. If you wanna be disrespectful, just be disrespectful. I mean, once we start I'm not gonna stop. I'll make you aware of that. You see what I'm saying? I'm not the kinda guy that goes away. You understand that? So if that's the kind of energy we're getting ready to go to, then let's do it."
D*mn, word doggy? Well, hate to be the one to say "I told you so," but let's put sh*t into focus. Can we? Truth be told, 50's new album is GOOD. Not GREAT, not a prequel to Get Rich Or Die Tryin' (GTFOH @50Cent!!!), but a good, maybe even "solid" album when it breaks down. But you can only do SOHH much publicity bullsh*t and try on a "gangster" outfit SOHH many times before it becomes worn out and peeps ain't f*cking with you anymore. Saddest part about doing 161,200 copies (including 2 weeks of iTunes) is that you know you lost when @ihategame is riding with you, labelmate or not.
"& if you REALLY wanna know the truth : to me, 50 album wasn't that bad.....," Game wrote via Twitter on Wednesday (November 25). "I contributed to that 161,000 ... Karma is just a B-*-T-C-H."
G-Unit, as we all knew it, is DONE. I was one of the few who stayed "hoping" the ship could not sink all the way, but 5-0 was the last remaining piece. He went, it's over. And if y'all think about it, if 50 would have accepted that 2007 "L" and "retired," fans would have "begged" for him to make another album and could have kept his sh*t hot. Holla @ me in the comments section to further this discussion.
D*mn, remember all that Dipset sh*t I said last week about there never being a Diplomat reunion? Yeah, all of those remarks, well doggy, turns out I was even more correct. While I f*cks with the whole team (especially JR Writer 'til he got shot the f*ck up) from Juelz Santana to Freekey Zeeky, I gotta admit, it's too hard
(no h*mo) to choose between Jim Jones and Cam'ron. Even when I think Cam'ron is on his A-game and makes you feel stupid for even breathing, Jones comes through asking you if you "smell him" like you know what that sh*t means? LMFAO.
"Listen to me, Juelz has the right to Dipset, just as much right to Dipset as Cameron Giles," Jones explained in an interview. "Ya dig? So there ain't no one person that can say Dipset is over. Ya dig? People just been doing a lot of YouTubin' and tryin' to get themselves hot. When you can't get on the radio, I guess YouTube is the next best thing. And tell me when I'm not telling the truth. There's no copyright holder...If I wanted to be a slob, I could have done some sloppy things...Above anything else, it wasn't just about me, Juelz and Zeek, there was a lot of people eating off this Diplomat situation...You gotta watch what you say as one person, because if someone was to take that personal, it could get ugly, ya dig? It's always Dipset, I am Dipset. I am Dipset, holla at me, whoever don't like it, I said I'm Dipset, I been Dipset...The Dipset is ours, we are Dipset, I am Dipset...This is not a publicity stunt, I don't go around sitting in shopping carts and do things like that. I go around and get money. If it's a problem, there's a thin line between love and hate. Ya dig?"
Now look, I know how some of y'all get tight with my "loose" writing and labeling of sh*t, but when I say Jones "clowned" and "dissed" Cam, doggy, you better believe it. From the shopping carts reference to saying there's a thin line between love and hate, what more proof do you need? D*mn, that YouTube line was hard-body though, Jones. Don't hate on Capo, y'all remember what Killa said:
"When I shake somebody's hand, [my Diplomat tattoo] is what you see," Cam said in an interview. "Shake hands. The only thing that bothers me is when n*ggas be like, 'Oh, so you can be down with Dipset? They gonna put you back down?' How can you put somebody back down for something that they own? Keepin' it a hundred, Dipset is Dipset but Dipset is over. They gotta get over it."
In all fairness, Cam was high as f*ck during that video! LMFAO. But let me just explain to y'all why Jones comes out on top of this. First off, this ain't 2001-2002, meaning, Cam's last three solo projects have declined in order. Punchy as f*ck and still one of the slang originators from the Big Apple, that sh*t isn't playing well going into 2010. Now this is why Jones > Cam. Jones is radio-friendly (shout-out to @FunkmasterFlex, @AngelaYee, @MissInfo), doesn't have "amnesia" during interviews, makes you feel dumb for thinking his album sales have anything to do with his paper, is an entrepreneur-turned-rapper (*See Koch/E-1 Music), has a working relationship with 50, Diddy and almost anyone except Jay-Z, gets radio play, etc... "I Am Dipset." LMFAO. Classic sh*t, get 'em Capo.
3. Lyrical Murder
Just for the record, I f*cks with Eminem HARD...however, in fairness, as y'all's boy 5-0 would say, "for the hip-hop art form," Canibus dug into M&M's a** this past week with some off the wall (no pun intended) sh*t that made its way into the iPod instantly! Y'all heard this slick talking by LL Cool J's biggest fan, right?
"You push D12 to the side -- if Proof was alive, he'd be dying inside," Canibus raps. "You ain't no hip-hop messiah, you a b*tch 'cause you dissed Mariah, sh*t like that's supposed to be private/I'ma fry you on behalf of Mariah and Michael, put you back on them drugs, make you suicidal/You can't shut the record down, n*gga it's viral/When you use the word n*gga, just remember your idols...Devil in a red dress on MTV, you signed more black people than a basketball team...Slim Shady you a coward because you scared to rap with me, the only black man you respect is 50/And the greatest rapper of all time was dead right, but you're dead wrong/You shouldn't have even been on that song..."
Now let's keep sh*t a hundred...first the bad. WAY F*CKING LATTTTTTE, "Can-A-B*tch" (c) Eminem. Seriously, you're basing this sh*t off of "defending" Mariah Carey (does she even know you, doggy?) and the late Michael Jackson when Em's sh*t came out in July? SMFH...if my calculations are correct, Em's record had the Internet going wild when Patrick Swayze was still alive and I was b-l-o-g j-o-b searching, f*ck, really Can? On the flip side, sh*t is a hot record, you can't take that away from him. But reflecting on this, Can looks pitiful and was a Nick Cannon feature away from making himself become more SMH-looking than Beanie Sigel. Just for the records, here is what Em told Mariah last summer:
"Only reason I dissed you in the first place is because you denied seeing me and now I'm pissed off," Em says on the song's intro. "Sit back homie, relax, in fact grab a six pack, kick back while I kick facts/Yeah Dre sick track, perfect way to get back/Wanna hear something with wack/I got the same exact tat that's on Nick's back/I'm 'Obsessed' now/Oh geesh, that's supposed to be me in the video with the goatee, wow, Mariah, didn't expect it to go balls out/B*tch shut the f*ck up before I put all the phone calls out you made to my house when you was Wildin' Out before Nick/When you was on my d*ck/And give you something to smile about/How many times you fly to my house just on account/Better shut your lying mouth if you don't want Nick finding out/You probably think since it's been so long that if I had something on you, I woulda did it by now/Oh on the contrary Mary Poppins/I'm mixing our studio session down and sending it to mastering to make it loud/Enough dirt on you to murder you/This is what the f*ck I do/Mariah, it ever occur to you that I still have pictures/However you prefer to do and that goes for Nick too/F*ggot, you think I'm scurred of you/You gonna ruin my career, you better get one/Like I'ma sit and fight with you over some sl*t b*tch c*nt that made me put up with her psycho a** over six months/And only spread her legs to let me hit once/Yeah, whatcha gonna say, I'm lucky?/Tell the public that I was so ugly that you f*cking had to be drunk to f*ck me..."
SMFH...........................Keith Murray, do you really know this dude? Holla at Tech N9ne for that duet album, homie.
4. Nobody Believes You, Really
SMFH...Beanie Sigel does not know when to stop. Is it just me, or has he really forgotten why he is "beefing" with Hov? Every interview he keeps running in circles from disses on Blueprint 3, being done dirty by
Dame Dash Jay at Roc-A-Fella, plus all the other complaints. F*ck @BulldogButterworth for a minute, what do ex-rap rivals Jim Jones and Mase think about this sh*t?
"I'ma keep it all the way live," Jim Jones told radio personality Angela Yee. "Beanie has the right to vent for whatever he wants the right to vent for, things like that, you know what I mean? I seen the ride we was on, he trying to get in the game and he knows one way to get back in the game is to stir controversy and who better to stir controversy than somebody that was directly in the camp and had to live that life day in and day out and seen the flaws that he could talk about and put a man on blast about due to the fact that he's venting because he feels or he felt that he was with a team that should have still been going now. And when your luck is down on you, you resort to bullsh*t because that's all you got. I don't know if that situation is frenemies because you came in as an artist, you don't know these people from nowhere. When I say frenemies, I know these people since 10, 11. People I've known for 10, 15 years of my life...After you start to learn the game, you think people are jerking you when they didn't, ya dig? If you came in and knew what you were doing, you would have been on top of your game and it wouldn't have went like that."
"Beans and Jay, I think it's ridiculous," Mase explained to DJ Drama. "I think it's ridiculous you know, I think it's ridiculous really. It's not called for, you know what I'm saying? I don't know, I come from a different, like when I was doing rap and people had issues, they just go across your head, they from that go up side generation. Not all these records and all that. They just go up. [laughs] When we was going up against the West Coast, it was like real serious issues, it wasn't just do it because your album is coming out. The gimmicky era, 'What I need to do to sell some records?' I don't believe you sell records off diss records, I think you sell 'em off hit records. It don't matter what diss record you got, you still need a hit record."
And when he finally gives up on Jay
and we survive this 2012 bullsh*t scare, trust, former G-Unit member Beanie Sigel will swallow these words of loyalty toward 50 Cent, please beeelllieve that.
"I just finished rocking the MySpace sh*t," Beans said backstage at the 50 Cent MySpace Music Release concert. "It was crazy, I came out to the stage blowing my [Newport cigarette], put my Biggie's [sunglasses] on...And that's just the beginning, wait 'til me and 50 dig in. [laughs] This sh*t start, this sh*t finish...Don't nobody want to see us walking down the dark alleys. You don't want to see that. You don't want to see that. You don't want to see that, [shakes head], ThisIs50.com. You definitely gonna see something with me and 50 in the future, definitely gonna keep putting my foot on n*ggas' necks."
One can't sell albums, the other can't get a record deal. SMH....I'll give 'em this though, both are using "bullsh*t beef" to get attention. SMFH...sadly, it's hurting them more than anything. @MemphisBleek, what it do?
5. I'm Rich, B*tch!!!
Uh-huh....sure, Dame. LMFAO. Just because I f*ck with knowing how much paper these rappers and executives have, I couldn't resist but peep this sh*t @sohhdotcom covered about Dame Dash. Personally, I think he's broke as sh*t, but that's not the case according to him, huh?
"I have fun everyday," Dash said about his life post-Roc-A-Fella. "The problem is, I think people take themselves a little bit too serious. I'm happy to be a part of history so many different times in so many different ways. I'm from a place where you have your ups and your downs. That's not really what I'm concerned about. It don't matter. I'm Dame Dash broke, I'm Dame Dash not broke -- I'm Dame Dash when I got some money. But we also know that when Dame Dash got some money, he's putting it into his businesses. I am a cake-aholic. My quality of living never really changes, ever! I've never had to sacrifice or compromise. Y'all actually seen a lot of my tragedies," Dash said. "I know what real pain feels like. Y'all seen me cry...All this other stuff, because these people wanna sell papers and say things, I don't care about that. I don't defend myself."
In other words? He ain't got no money. LMFAO, nah, let me stop. Dame reminds me of Robert De Niro from Casino, y'all seen that, right? Of course we see the glitz and glamor and the sex and shine (dude had Aaliyah, WTF?), but a couple moves here, some "betrayal" here and there and a divorce from Rachel Roy? D*mn. I can't call it, Dame, but you say you're still good?
"The first thing you gotta kick when you're an entrepreneur is your ego," Dame explained in an interview. "You can't look like you're doing good all the time. You gotta struggle and I don't mind grinding, I actually like it. I'm almost addicted to it. Even when the thing with all my taxes happened, I thought, you know I made a bunch of money and I thought my accountant paid my taxes instead he stole some money out my account and didn't say nothing. I look at that as a learning experience, it just won't happen again, you know what I mean? I don't regret nothing, I got too many healthy kids. You know, I got four of 'em so as long as they're around and they're cool, I'm good."
Who knows, maybe he's telling the truth
or maybe he's broke as f*ck. The bottom line is Dame got a few minutes of shine and it hurts me to see him SOHH humble these days. What happened to that a**hole we all loved to hate? "Why you think me and Dame cool, we a**holes/That's why we hear your music and fast forward, 'cause we don't wanna hear that weak sh*t no more..." (c) Kanye West. But eh, I'm just a blogger. Kick the Rocccccccccks!
***D*mmmmmmmn homie, y'all are getting off (pause that sh*t!) easy once again, this week, no Junk Mail due to the holiday break. (GTFOH) SOHH y'all are starting to f*ck with me, huh? STOP, now! LMFAO. Nah, really appreciate it, but I'm just here to present the current hot topics with a few angled perspectives, SOHH keep your flares showing and voice yourselves. I'm here to build a Pulse Report (& Caption Diss) community, doggies. Bulldog lives another day and if all goes as planned, y'all are in for some surprises with SOHH I hear. Stay tuned fools! ---Bulldog Butterworth***
