Public Service Announcement- Philly got the BEST spitters, dead or alive. Period. FACT.
For a guy that’s achieved as much as LL Cool J has, he’s mentioned very little these days. I suppose he (along with Will Smith?) kinda served as the bridge between both ‘Golden Eras’ of rap (classic 80s shit and the Dre/Wu-Tang/Nas/Biggie generation). From a critical perspective, Mr. Smith has had his ups and downs, but he managed a pretty nifty trick in staying relevant for over 20 years and 13 albums.
Dear Senate, we request a motion to boycott Interscope Records until further notice.
Detox does not exist, it’s a myth. These latest “leaks” and “street singles” are leftover records from years ago from various projects.
We know Detox is a myth because it has no fixed release date. It’s an insult to our intelligence to keep implying Detox will be released.
An accountant allocates a budget for an album, when a release date has been set. So if no release date has been set, it means there is no budget to fund the album. Which means Detox does not exist. We just have a bunch of news reports from PR Companies posing as blogs telling the consumers to wait for Detox.
Fans should boycott all Aftermath/Interscope related products until there is a confirmed release date.
A lot of times, a good rap battle is over before it even starts– for the fans, we only see the aftermath: the public shame, the declining sales, the ether. For every monumental battle, however, there are oftentimes many other dope diss songs floating about the outskirts of the beef (in most cases, from the various weed carriers or gawkers looking to get a little blog love by involving themselves in the beef) that never got. Then there are those battles that simply weren’t documented; forgotten over time and relegated to a P-Cutta compilation.
