Ten Thirteen Fifteen Essential Yayo Songs that even the Most Uptight Piece of Shit Claiming to be a Hip-Hop Fan will Enjoy…FACT”
Be Clear- Marvin” Tony Yayo” Bernard is NOT the best rapper alive, or the next King of New York, or anything designated or attached to the words “amazing” and/or “rapper” in any combination. Yayo is a GOON– Too many stories have arisen to the contrary; from the Death of Busta’s Bodyguard to Shutting Down the Mixtape Awards to
Laying hands on allegedly slapping Jimmy Henchman’s Son, Marvin has been involved in every incident, and every incident has usually resulted in a beatdown, shooting, or death.
It’s been a long road for French Montana. The Moroccan born MC (French and his family emigrated to the Bronx from Morocco when he was 13) began building a name for himself in the streets of NYC back in the ‘early 2000’s with his successful Cocaine City DVD series. Cocaine City made French some fans but some of the footage he released earned him some enemies too (Lil’ Cease should be ashamed of himself). Using the DVD’s to gain vital industry connections, French started collaborating with other underground rappers, releasing mixtapes and eventually partnered up with ex DipSet affiliate, Max B for their Coke Wave CD/DVD. French ended up right in the middle of Max’s beef with Jim Jones and his Byrd Gang crew but the way they made light about the situation only managed to make both Max and French that much more popular, able to regularly do shows off of mixtape material. French isn’t a remarkable rapper by any means but his sing songy hooks and ability to adapt a Dirty South (by way of the South Bronx) flow has allowed him to cross over despite the usual regional boundaries. Think of it as East Coast trap music. (more…)
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.
Remember back when Jeezy was that dude? The Recession was a critical and commercial success, well received by both internet rap nerds and actual dope boys. Trap or Die 2 would have made a worthy follow up album, so as a mixtape, it was more than sufficient.
And then, out of nowhere, Jeezy fell off. Or maybe he didn’t. I can’t call it. In an era where 3 months is like a year, and a year is like a decade, it seems like forever since he’s been relevant.
