Corporate Headquarters

s140-irac Ola gang... sorry I've been a bit quiet. I have been working tirelessly on a top secret project that doesn't involve rapping but does involve the re-imagining of some famous music in a distinctly modern and cinematic fashion. which has been fun.

Today I'm working on a remix for The Voluntary Butler Scheme, a charming band from the midlands. The song is called Tabasco Sole, and it is grayte. I shall make it grayter. or different grayte. Fire grayte. Indeed.

I'm starting to get very excited about this year. LP2 is nearly done. I wanted to make a massive pop album, and that's exactly what's transpired. A fuck-off massive pop album. One song left to record. And I want you all singing on the chorus. I'm sussing out a way of enabling that process. All ideas are very welcome.

I'm looking forward to playing it live. The live thing's gotta step up fifty notches. I have two great guitarists and a similarly dope bassist. I need a drummer. I figure its gonna have to be an electronic kit, for reasons of sonic sickness, and practical concerns. Drums take up a lot of room in a van. Electronic drums less so. I think i need to get a DJ too. I kinda miss Birddogg on that front. Dude was unrealiable, but a wizard. Magic is important.

I wanna have the greatest artists website in the world. And the greatest live show. To match the greatest 21st century pop album. Go hard or go yard. Who said that?

There is a ton of stuff I wanna do, and obviously I won't be able to do it all, which is depressing, so I'm a have to do the right thing and delegate. I wanna do amazing animated videos. Animation mixed with live action, straight animation, warped future animation... any budding animation types, get at me. If anyone knows any dope people who's work I should check out, do let me know.

I wanna do filmed videos too, but amazing interesting ones. I recall Radiohead used to pay extra attention to that sort of thing. So did Michael Jackson. Budgets are at an all time low, but the potential for creativity is at an all time high.  I am excited.

Oh, here's that Dre joint that leaked. people have been asking me for this. I don't know why, it wasn't hard to find. but anyway.

FYI, every song on my album is 10 times better than this. I am not hating. I am stating.

On 50 Cent & The Decline Of Beef As A Viable Marketing Tool

.> >

I have written another article for The Quietus. They pay me! Awesome huh? Check it:

Black Sky Thinking - Cutting the Beef

July 2nd, 2008 ·

As 50 Cent vainly attempts to flog another album on his label with a tired round of beefing, Adam Narkiewicz looks at how a new generation of rappers are re-introducing a spirit of community and collaboration to the genre.

Yes, that's what I do. Read it here.

Young Buck Responds

Oh shit! Young Buck shot back at 50 pretty fast.

Check it out.

First off, on an emotional new song called The Taped Conversation, he's claiming that taped conversation is a year old.

"Bitch niggas do bitch things/ look at 50 what he does just to get fame / record my phone call when I spoke from the heart / that was a year ago / this was a joke from the start"

Damn. Buck continues,

"You a ho / and I know / the only people that record conversations is five oh / and they die slow..."

And this is where we have to say, figga please!

Twice, in my knowledge, Young Buck has threatened emcees with phone conversations between him and them he'd recorded.

"I don’t know if he’s aware that I recorded that conversation that we had over the phone, ” he said of Wayne last year.

“If he responds in any type of way, I’mma end his career ’cause I got it on tape. I’mma let the world hear him complaining," he said of Game three years ago.

So, really. Dude can't say a whole lot now.

"I dealt with you from the heart," laments Buck at the end of the song.

Boy oh boy, pop rap is a crazy game.

Young Buck Crying On The Phone

From Playlouder: I was gonna write something about recently demoted G Unit member Young Buck shouting "fuck G Unit" a lot onstage the other day, then I thought, nah, this stuff is played out and lame, I dont wanna talk about it.

Then this morning, I wake up to a tape recorded phone conversation between Young Buck and 50, in which Buck basically sounds like he's crying, and begs 50 for his job back.

Part one is basically all Buck going on about how loyal he is and how he's never say anything about 50 and how wants back in.

In Part two Buck cries about his money situation and appologises to 50 and says he's confused then actually cries actual audible tears.

Shit is horrorful to listen to, really. Shame on 50 for putting this out there just to sell a few more copies of the new G Unit album (tagged as it is with "thisis50dotcom!"). I feel traumatised. I just heard a guy get his life ruined.

It is ruined, right? In this rap landscape where careers are built on hardness and cashsplashiness, a guy can't come back from being recorded crying to his boss about money, right?
