The Young Jeezy/Rick Ross non-feud is heating up. After Jay seemed to call Ross out for throwing the BMF name around a little too loosely, Rozay has hit back with a new jam of his own. "The Summa's Mine," which you can hear above, features the following incendiary few lines:
"This motherfucker's mad that I'm icey/Talking to a pussy nigga, yeah I might be/Let it resonate, first 48/Home of the chopper toters, my paper's straight/I assassinate and employ em all/shittin' on your dogs, I'm just showing off/Self-made, you just affiliated/Really a waterboy, nigga you entertainment."
Yikes. Whether or not this thing started as legitimate beef, it certainly seems to be headed that way now.
This just in from the punk-ass moves bureau. Above, check out "Death B4 Dishonor," a new jam from Jeezy's upcoming 1,000 Grams mixtape. Over the beat from Rick Ross' "B.M.F. (Blowin' Money Fast)," a rather confident-sounding Jay Jenkins spits the following accusatory couplet:
"How you blowin' money fast, you don't know the crew/ Oh you part of the fam? Shit, I never knew."
The "crew" in question, of course, is the purportedly defunct Black Mafia Family, or BMF, with which Jeezy is alleged to have held strong ties. And the "you?" Well, the "you" is Rick Ross. Right? Right.
Except...now Jeezy says it's not?
So here's video of Gucci Mane storming out of a recent radio interview. Nah Right insists he did so because he was asked a question about his newfound beef with former friend and fellow Atlanta rapper Waka Flocka Flame (he of Fozzie Bear chain fame). Gucci previously severed ties with his manager - and Flocka's mother - Debra Antney, after she came under fire for some shady business.
Though there's no evidence in the video that this was the reason for Gucci's tantrum, the story is believable enough. Either way, Gooch could have just said "no comment."
Looks like Tip's got her back! Local music gossip hounds take note: rumors are swirling that T.I. and his lady Tameka "Tiny" Cottle plan to tie the knot this weekend in Miami. Congrats, guys! No word, however, on whether the lion will be in attendance.
There has been even more craziness than usual floating around the blogosphere in recent days. It started with my story in this week's paper about Jermaine Dupri, who has taken his So So Def imprint independent, and, in the process, "micro'd" his whole operation.
Hugely-popular Atlanta-based gossip blogger Sandra Rose ran with the story and added her own, somewhat mean-spirited, commentary in a post on Friday. She said he was "in denial" over his relationship with Janet Jackson (Rose claims they are broken up, which he seemed to deny to me), and accused him of not crafting many of the songs that bear his name over the years. She editorialized that, with his scaled-down company, things have now come "full circle."
Gone is the big money label budget and all the perks that went along with being signed to a major label. If you don’t have a major label budget, then you can’t pay producers. This is when a producer’s weaknesses — and lack of raw talent — is exposed for the world to see.
On Saturday, she posted again, asserting that J.D. had called her the night before, from France, and threatened her.
“I got people ready to kill you right now!,” he screamed. “I’m letting you know it’s serious in the streets right now...I run Atlanta! I got ni**as calling me saying they don’t know what you look like, but all I gotta do is point you out and they will FUCK YOU UP!!!!”
Everyone’s favorite punching bag for Atlanta hip-hop, Soulja Boy, should be getting ready for even more ridicule very soon — and no, it’s not for his collaborations with our favorite Canadian export, Justin Beiber.
The latest made for ringtones single from Soulja Boy, “Pretty Boy Swag”, was allegedly hijacked from a group of — wait for it — twelve year old rappers.
I’m not an expert, but I see the similarities and apparently so do the kids who decided to go in on Soulja Boy in a diss video.
Georgians dominate country and hip-hop radio charts, according to a recent post by AJC radio reporter, Rodney Ho.
Apparently, "seven of the top 15 acts on the country radio charts have Georgia ties while eight of the top 20 hip-hop songs also have local ties," he writes, citing a Mediabase 24/7 report.
The report lists such acts as Zac Brown Band, Lady Antebellum, and Little Big Town on the country side, along with R&B/rap acts including Usher, Ludacris, Soulja Boy, the Dream and Kanye West — which made commenters on the post pause to ask the obvious question: When did Kanye West become locally affiliated?
Things have been looking good for Dungeon Family with Big Boi’s Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty finally seeing the light of day and sounding pretty damn good by the way — shame on you Jive Records — but now there are rumors circulating that could keep the reunited Goodie Mob from dropping that long-awaited album.
That is, if the rumors hitting the web are true about Goodie Mob member Khujo being handed a two-year sentence for an unknown conviction.
A couple weeks ago, speculation arose that Donnis' comments in an interview with Complex about rappers "selling [their] soul" were directed towards his labelmate B.o.B. In the video above (via), Donnis says that's bogus:
Me and B.o.B are cool. Not like super cool, like we hang out every day, but...I'm very cool with T.I., I'm very cool with his management...I feel like that was a blanket statement...on where hip-hop is. It wasn't a shot at anybody. It wasn't a shot at anybody on my label, it wasn't a shot at my label, it wasn't a shot at any record label. It was just a shot at, I guess, anyone who wants to make music that's not from the heart.
Beef busted. I feel better.
I don’t want to be in the spotlight so bad that I’m going to sell my soul, or sell my creativity short. I’m not going to go in and get some hooks from some niggas who don’t know me, or know what I’m about. I don’t want a record that J. Cole, Drake, Lupe, or whoever else passed on, then it gets to me. Then the label is like, “You gotta record this because it’s the new heat, and this person had it.” I’m not going to let them do the math with my record. [...] I’ve got my girl records that are real feel-good and could be a radio crossover. But it’s not me going in that direction, and being like, “We need this huge pop crossover record where we need this girl on the hook."
Nah Right interprets this as a slam against Donnis' neighbor and labelmate B.o.B, whose The Adventures of Bobby Ray has enjoyed commercial success amidst a near-universal panning from the critics for its lack of focus and cheap, radio-pandering sound.
What do you think? Did Donnis dis B.o.B? And if so, does he have a point?

All 80s movies want you...
Their show with Chris, Lord about 3 years at the Unicorn was the best.
I am a connoisseur of this real soul music like the comment above I'm glad…
You've got a few of my faves listed here, plus a bunch I've never heard…
This is such a cool idea and the performance is great (I've been twice) but…
