The Ultimate Emcee Battle R-R-R-Rap Up

Maaaan, I never heard so many people say last night was the "best MC battle I ever saw." Real talk. And, speaking of Real Talk- it was a close one between Real Talk and K-Beta in the quaterfinals. In fact, K-Beta's first two opponents- Yung Cat and Real Talk were his toughest competitors along the way to his eventual winning of the Second Ultimate Emcee Challenge.

The emcees were out last night, and I have one demanding suggestion for the next battle- you have to have some sort of loser bracket that gets you back in because I saw cats like Chuck Book, K.I., Young Cat, Real Talk, Dilligent and more lose early and by the closest of margins and I felt like they could have had another chance especially, when a midget in "the crow" jacket is battling the poker rapper! LOL. And, if you were there you know what I'm talkin bout. Them dudes shouldnt have been able to advance anywhere. In fact, Seez Mics battling that Chris "Moneymaker" look-a-like was plain RIDICULOUS!

Speaking of Seez Mics! WTF! He was running thru his competition and looked to be on his way to his umpteenth battle championship. Many people think he got robbed. Now, many of you know that me and Beta go way back, but, what you don't know is that I known Seez just as long and these two battling it out in the semi-finals was revenge and it got a lil personal. (Many of the battles got a lil personal for real. lol) Seez beat Beta the weekend Beta got outta jail in 2004 (after a 3 1/2 year bid) and it was not just a win, it was an utter slaying..Well, this time around Beta got a lil help from the crowd and pushed the battle into overtime for a third round. And Beta served Seez.

The semi-finals also featured the old vet Slim Cee battling Sketch and after Slim was out anhilating his foe all night, he met his match against Sketch. Sketch had his best round in this battle and straight mAErked Slim. It wasnt even funny.

The finals shaped up as a Black Irish championship with the two group members going head to head. K-Beta versus Sketch. Well, it wasnt much of a battle as Sketch went first and had a little more hesitant approach against Beta. Cause when Beta went in... he took shots calling Sketch his hype man and all types of other shit. Don't worry videotape will be up soon.

All in all, this was the best battle I can ever remember seeing. I mean you had Whitefolkz, Chuck Book, Real Talk, Chaos, Seez Mics, Flex Matthews, K-Beta, Sketch, Dilligent, Slim Cee, K.I., and a bunch more who impressed. The battles were hittin from the jump and I look forward to the next joint in March. In the meantime make sure you mark your calendars for Jan. 16 for the "King Of The Beltway Beat Battle" also at Jammin Java and for Jan 26 at Pure for the relaunch of Tru Skool with almost every dope emcee in the area having a giant cipher. Gonna be crazy!!!

Street market ent
Current mood: hungry
Category: Music

there is a team out there right now making music can u guess who? everyone is!! these days in time there are so many wanna be music producers rappers etc..,but there is a dim light that is startin to brighten up in the A. lemme explain b4 i go on, i have managed several artists from producers to rappers. There attitudes are very different, believe it or not.but we are talkin bout producers, my first experience with producers besides my own team, was guns n butter, a white dude and an indian, weird combo right and u thought tha these dudes would listen but they always try to grab any oppertunity and didn't care of the consequence, i showed them the way they were lost b4 they hooked up with and if they say any different, it is what it is, I hooked them up with P-cutta and the crew they didn't know any better and i had to vouch for them on several occassions not trying to tute my on horn but i did lead them the way, they okay dudes but they are stubborn as a fuck and there beats are samples, sampled beats sound great but no nononononono money!! So with guns n butter had set up tracks done with nore, nature,tragedy khadafi, and others but they can't play keys, and can't create a beat from scratch, they attempted 2 but wackness!!!
STREET MARKET is a young crew of producers who actually know how to create a beat from scratch, they sample there own live drums etc... can't give all the secrets. Brie is a producer from fla and he is from the carribean thats why he got so much rythm behind his shit, afriken iz african and he is a monster on the drums. THey do it all, they are geniuses at pro tools, and they have great ears. Ed is the operations of the crew so get at them they got heat, and if u remember the record tat it up, thats them they got plenty of great hits, they done shit with jeezy, blood raw just to name a few. They are so good they got a rapper named trouble a writers deal with atlantic these guys are buzzin and if u aint careful they will sting ya. These guys listen to what u want and they give u what u need. they are being push by SG, simon gidewon who has been hated on and dogged out so many times that i lost count. Simon G is misunderstood and he is generally refered as ALEX LIL BROTHER which is true, he is his younger brother but he his ALEX'S brother first off, so respect his grind and he will reciprocate the respect. U can hate on these guys if u want but in the end u will wish u dealt with them from the jump, Simon and his team have been thru alot of shit and they are still going thru it but like a great team they always come thru in the clutch, from from hiphop, rap, r&B, and world music these guys got it.I have been round alot of great producers such as mannie fresh, nitty, polow the don, and many others but these guys the industry better watch out for cuz they street market monsters. PLEASE don't ask for free beats cuz free doesnt pay bills and they way beyond that lvl, LETS GET IT YYYYEEAAAAHHHHHH

this is the level u stoop to?! it took someone 5 months to find this blog and it got no responses on yer page.

MONSTER! MONSTER MONSTER!

My brother Doug sent me this...crazy.





I came across a story today about Monster Cables. Apparently they sue everyone that uses the word monster. Their lawsuits include suing the Pixar movie Monsters, Inc., the Chicago Bears for their use of the nickname "Monsters of the Midway", job board Monster.com, Monster energy drink, and literally hundreds of small family owned businesses all for copyright infringement based on the use of the word monster.

Basically they just beat smaller companies down and force them into a settlement where the company has to pay licensing fees to Monster Cable for use of the word monster.

So basically they make well-marketed, over-hyped, overpriced audio and video cables and then own the naming rights to hundreds of products and companies.

I am kind of shocked that this is even legal. Why wouldn't a judge laugh them out of court? Copyright infringement is supposed to be for when a similar name might confuse consumers into buying another similar product. How the fuck have they taken ownership of a fucking word from the dictionary? Seriously?

Link for more details.
http://monsterminigolf.com/bully.html

Anyone can help by not purchasing their products, writing letters, donating to the companies who are fighting them, or by personal finding the founder of Monster Cables, Noel Lee, and bitch slapping him.

Mass Text! J-Zone

I swear to GOD I was about to right a rant about this shit...It seems J-Zone beat me to it. This shiht is classic. By the way, I do have free text messaging but seriously, half the numbers I don't have saves and ALL of them arent like "Yo, Jeff..." or "Yo, Scrilla,..."

Check it out...

Check out this email from the one and only J-Zone:

To whom it may concern. I'll be damned, it's noon and already 10 texts deep. $1.50.

I don't like repeating myself. I really really don't. I only do that when a first attempt at sending a message doesn't go through…you know, like when you attempt to send a text message to somebody and it fails so you resend. While we're on the subject…let's stay there.

Last Christmas I informed everybody of my frustration with these %$%$!! mass text messages. They're like mass emails (like this one) but 9 times out of 10 they're trite, arbitrary, bland and cost money. OK, some of you have free text messaging on your phones. Well, I still have a cassette walkman and was evil the day auto makers stopped putting tape players in cars - I had to burn all my music on CD's which took over a year including that real nice Ice-T album that had bonus cuts only on the tape- so I obviously don't give a %^$* about the latest technology. Don't give me that Blackberry/Bluetooth sh*t either unless your name is in Forbes Magazine. I don't do none of that sh*t and those that know me know that I DON"T HAVE FREE TEXT MESSAGING ON MY CEL PHONE PLAN. EVERY TEXT MESSAGE COSTS ME 15 CENTS TO SEND AND RECEIVE. Don't get me wrong, if you want to wish me a happy holiday then say "Yo Jay, Happy Holidays" in the text. That's fine and I appreciate the thought. Or pick up the *%#!%! phone and call me. If you're so hi tech you must have a lotta minutes on your iphone or whatever that sh*t is. E-Mail me, it's free! But this mass text message sh*t gotta stop and I mean right mutha%#!*&% now. Especially in this economy. Between Thanksgiving and New Years, I get an average of 40 "Happy/Merry whatever the &%$#" text messages. And half of these jokers that send them are loose music biz affiliates that I never bothered to save their number but they apparently kept every number they ever got and mass text these one liner greetings and I have no idea who the %@!* they are (take me off your event list too, especially if I don't live in the same state as you). When I them call back to invoice them for my 15 cents, they don't pick up the $&#*!* phone! Lets do some arithmetic…

40 Text Messages @ $0.15 cents each = $6.00

Half of these texts are from people whose numbers aren't saved in my phone, so I have to call them back to see who it is and cuss them out. 90% go to robot voicemail. 90% of these texts are during peak hours, so I get charged for approximately 18 one minute calls before 9PM trying to get reimbursed my 15 cents. I have 600 anytime and free nights and weekends on my plan. I usually use about 587 minutes in the winter months (I like to leave a lil room so I don't get charged $1.25 per minute for going over 600). Therefore, I run a risk of going over my anytime minutes by about 5 minutes.

5 minutes @ $1.25 per minute = $6.25

Taxes and fees are about $0.75

$6.00 + $6.25 + $0.75 = $13.00

That's $13.00 pointlessly spent for no %*&!% reason at all. Simply for having a cel phone and being a victim of pointless text dreck. They just pile up like L blocks in a game of Tetris when Christmas rolls around. If I up my plan, that's another $10 a month…$120 for the year. $140 including taxes and surcharges. I can hear y'all talkin' sh*t about me right now. "Yo man J-Zone is mad cheap, he's pitchin a b**ch over $13." OK, I'm cheap, so what? Go head and talk that sh*t. But if you walked into White Castle and the cashier asked you for $13 but you didn't ask to buy food, would you just give it to him/her simply because you were in there? Let that marinate for a second…and in the meantime here is a list of things I can do with $13...

- Get a shape-up (or a full haircut if I see my man Jay-Mee) and have $3 left over for a new toothbrush…the good kind with the bristles that reach deep in the gums and massage them.

- Fill half my tank with Mobil 87 gas (since prices went back down).

- Buy 2 bags of Asian Style Chicken Breasts at Trader Joes (with some money left over if I get lighter bags).

- A 6 pack of Adidas Moisture Wicking Athletic Crew Socks at Marshalls.

- A sealed copy of Pimps Up, Hoes Down on DVD via amazon.com including shipping.

- 31 stamps and only having to come out of pocket $0.02.

Hopefully sending this message out early in the holiday season thwarts some of this text message crap and I can save some money and save you the impending headache of me bossing up on you for my $0.15...because I swear on a stack of James Brown 45's I'm not even kidding, I'm dead a$$ serious. If you strike on all 3 holidays, that's $0.45. Learn to contact people directly when you think of them. Yeah it takes time, but it was never a problem before text messaging. E-mail me (it's free!!!!), get at me personally or remove me off your text list because your tab is running and ye$ I will be paid, I will be paid.

Feel free to paypal me $13 at this e-mail address tomorrow…or order a Chief Chinchilla: Live @ The Liqua Sto CD from me…it's the same price. That's black Friday for your mutha f%$#!* a$$…the day I get reimbursed for ya'll getting greedy with your phone features…

If this doesn't apply to you, enjoy your day...

Ho Ho Ho

Nas Illmatic Remix Jawn! Live Video by G-Light films

On May 29, 2008 Inner Loop Records threw a show @ Rock-N-Roll Hotel celebrating the classic Nas "Illmatic" album. We got a hold of some of the dopest DMV (DC, Maryland, Virginia) cats to remix the classic album and we threw it together on CD and performed it all live. This was the first time this concept had been attempted and the first of many more remake albums to come as we are gearing up for the Jay-Z "Reasonable Doubt" joint in January. Producers such as Kev Brown, Best Kept Secret, J-$crilla, Overok, Judah, NFinit, Oddisee and more remixed the original samples and had emcees like Ra The MC, Sketch, K-Beta, R.E.U.B., Kambir, Team Demo and Shaka perform their own takesm and own lyrics, of the classic wordplay Nas invoked. The album was put up on blogs from Japan to Germany to Australia to Russia to the good ol USA and though its hard to guage the amount of total downloads and listens we can tell you that on datpiff.com its been listened to over 260,000 times and downloaded nearly 60,000 times. The night is summed up here on video thanks to G-Light Films and www.innerlooprecords.com...

FUCK JURY DUTY

Yo My girl got selected for jury duty and she got assigned to a trial. She's a contractor for 2 TV stations, meaning she's not an employee. So, she has to work this trial til it's over and only make $30 a day (which is sposed to be for lunch.) For real, that's some straight bullshit!!!!!!!!!! She has to take off work and not get fucking paid for at least a week! In this fuckin day and age!. And who gonna have to foot the bill? You already know. I told her I wouldn't go. I'd go up there and tell em to fuck off. I'd say some racist shit or some fat joke shit or whatever the fuck could get me outta there. but, she's afraid she'll get locked up and shit...Fuck that. Fuck jury duty. Just another way the motherfuckin courts are all fucked up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

SCENESTER RAP ATTACK. BEWARE OF YOUR SHIRT

You know maaaaaaaan, I gotta get somethin off the S on the chest.. I downloaded Mick Boogie's "Leaders Of The New Kool" the other day and got around to listening anf first off, its got a bunch of nerdy scenesters rapping about what they wear (which i the idea of the "tape" i think.) Case in point... This dude Fashawn. This song comes on and right away I'm like "Holy Moly!" I dunno who produced the song but..hold up! The dude Fashawn is straight rapping about what he wears the whole song. Like, just jive blatant "10 Deep, check, LRG, check...Supreme, check, Zoo York, check, Triumphant, check..." Come the fuck on maaaan. This is that ringtone rap shit. "Why?" You say to me. Because, this shit has as much shelf life as...naw fuck this. This aint even ringtone rap. This shit has a shelf life of 3 hours when yer homie skater, skimboarding, wall-climbing friend has on the new Couture or whatever the fuck. I mean son! Are you serious. This is valley girl rap. This is the shit AC Slater used to bump while bench pressing stacks of playgirl magazines. This shit is Bayside whackness. But***** anyways. The beat. Thats why the fuck I'm posting this shit. Whoever made the beat better have ill crates. Cuz, I got that hot ass sample and I flipped it too. AND BELIEVE ME MY DUDE AP GONNA MURK IT WAY ILLER THAN THIS DUDE... 

So u nuts and chews out there go head and tell me which you like better. Mine or his.

Mine isnt mixed and its straight out the MPC.

You clowns who think you gotta rock yer weeks paycheck on yer every outfit are crazy. Originality gotta still count for something. I mean I rock Stussy.. I rock sum 10 Deep, etc.. But, do you know? Do you? I dont think so..Im not even gonna go back to the surf clothes with yall... Just dont go out biting my blue blockers! i been rockin them for years. all different sizes sun. $10. And, I dont know Fashawn from Ned Flanders but my dude! This is the first song I hear from you...and this is what I get? Not a good look. At all. I mean unless these companies are endorsing you, i dont condone dropping all the brands in you n your homies closets. I dunno, maybe I'm bein too hard on homie. It's late. I'm hungry.

K-BEAT INTERVIEW



K-BETA INTERVIEW!

MMIM: Tell me about your start in the music business and the songs you have appeared on.


KB: The first actual release I was ever on came out in 2002 and was called “Pressure Points”. It was released by Guns and Butter who I am still very closely associated with today as part of InterLoop Records. Funny thing about that was I recorded a verse over the phone while I was in jail. It wound up making the last track on the album. K-Beta live rapping through the phone. I didn’t get out until 2004. Then on the proper side of things, the first actual CD release was with the Thundercats CD called, “In the Beginning.” We released it in 2004 and sold a couple thousand copies. It was a great time recording that. We did the entire recording in Chantilly, VA at Overock’s mother’s house. The whole ground work and grassroots process was great.....

Katt Williams "Gangsta Tigers"



Katt Williams compares Tigers in a cage to Blacks in a America...did he just say "Blacks"? Hmmphmm. Sorry, African-Americans..What? I mean, uh, people of color. What? You callin me Persian? Ughh. What you got against uh Persian People? Nothin. Man. Nothin. Damn. Can everybody just have a mixed baby like me? This race shit gotta end...

Anyways, peep the funny fucking video

Public $ervice Announcement- Networking 101

U know some people ask me if I have a manager or who I know and all this shit. I hear "yo, scrilla in the industry" & "scrilla gettin all these placements" hahahaha..NOT TRUE. I do everything on my own. I got a bunch of good friends who may or maynot help me sometimes. Truth is- I get my connections by helping others who can help me out...So, when people come around and are like, "Yo can you get my beats to so and so.." or "you can u get a beat from so and so for this project.." The answer is, "WHAT CAN YOU DO FOR ME?" Of course I will help you out but maybe you can shoot me a video or design me a flyer or hit me with that drum kit.. You feel me? This is just basic networking 101 people. I'm not the most friendly people person and truth be told- I'm not the best at networking with even my network. But, the people who make music that are genuine- I always get along with well. So, no I'm not an industry dude and if you've known me long enough or prolly even short enough, you'd know that I'm pretty much anti- everything that's popular. That's since elementary school. I don't know why but I always got along better with the "real" people and usually the popular girls snuck around with me because I wasnt feeding into the bullshit.. So I will help you to the best of my abilities if you will help me to the best of yours. Thanks and this has been a Public $ervice Announcement

My dude T.E.F.L.O.N. sent me this from his artist...havent heard it yet as i jus got it. but i did a track with ep, tef and reef for the rigamortis album dropping next year...1

EPIDEMIK - NATURE OF THE BEAST (HOSTED BY PETER ROSENBERG)

This is a project that really has been years in the making, but now the time is right. Some of you may have heard Ep before but this is a proper introduction to an emcee thats been quietly doing his thing in the DMV for some time now, he's also 1/2 of the group Rigamortiz. I can promise you that this is one of the hardest tapes, street albums, etc. to ever drop in the D.C. area or maybe even in hip-hop in general. Also a special shout out to our boy Peter Rosenberg from Hot 97/Juan Epstein for being part of this project.

EXECUTIVE PRODUCED BY T.E.F.L.O.N. & M. HARTMAN

COUNTDOWN TO ARMAGEDDON

i just moved all weekend. i built more ikea shit/guitar center shit. i gotta return some shit cuz of faulty bullshit. case in point, i built this fuckin audio desk from guitar center. i crafted it to perfection and this motherfuckin wheel explodes today while im reconfiguring my midi setups! wtf! now i gotta put a book under the joint. shit was less than 24 hours built! but, these motherfuckers aint gonna come rebuild the shit for me. id have to break the shit down- return it, get a truck and then rebuild it! fuck outta here. i dunno...





anyways, the countdown to arma-fuckin-geddon looms and i guess everybody with some sense has to know that if barack hussein obama doesnt win then theres gonna be a fuckin riot. me- im goin grocery shoppin. holla at the God. fuck gettin caught up in a race war. my world would be fucked up! lol. no for real LOL! If obama does win then the fuckin christainteers will be out burning abortion clinics, spray painting swastikas and burning crosses! yea! kill whitey! kill blacky! kill what yer not!

for real, i like barack. i dont like the near socialistic plans- i mean yo, the emergency room sucks balls now. imagine that shit on govt health care! ha! fuck that. and, being a part time govt contractor i see the trickle down bureacratic bullshit on the regular. that shit would take 5 years minimum to install. then, all the fuckin taxes! boooo.




and mccain? well, c'mon. i wouldnt vote for a dude i cant high five. u gotta be shittin me. now this guy seems like he is running to be president cuz his wife got him by the balls. he doesnt act or seem presidential and for real, hes prolly a decent dude. he aint one of those down south republicans. he is moderate. his campaign blows balls. they went negative etc. i mean he never had a chance especially after he gotta hold of that GILFer from alaska. i mean mccain will die in office while president. so, u know, fuck the bullshit.

bottom line- govt sucks. old skool republicans had it right- let the states govern not the feds. fuck the feds!. people like reagan n the bushers fucked it up bad. democrats are good but they fuck up small business owners like a lot of us hip-hopreneurs. i mean, im all for people with less gettin some programs, getting some kickback, etc. i dont like hungry poor people roaming my streets. why? cuz hungry people are the most dangerous people. republican nazis dont realize that.

anyways, im rambling. i got something else.. what if barack is put in office by the all mighty (if u dont like conspiracies then stop reading, im full of em.) i mean dude is a 32nd or 33rd degree mason. he has ties. no fuckin way anybody gets to run for president w/o the right friends. he may not be on strings (like bush) but he has a lot to own up to. first off, hes black! news flash right?! but, for real- old, white, rich people dont like black people telling them what tghe fuck to do. its the american way. so, how does a black (half white, too) man get to run for the head executive office of the worlds premiere powerhouse?

*drum roll*

now remember this is just a conspiracy, and i hope to God im so incorrect. and i know people have said, "what if he gets in office and he gets assasinated?" well, my brothers and my sisters- thats only skin deep

what if he has been put in position to be elected president because THEY ultimately wanna create marshall law, then a world economy then finally put in to effect a new world order?!

u see.. the thinking goes...... i put obama in position to run in primaries after we set him up 4 yrs ago to deliver ridiculously charming speech at democratic convention. people under 40 have much more open minds- they were born during the summer of love or later. we can get an influx of young voters because they wanna be a part of history, vote for a black president. throw a slogan of CHANGE up until it brainwashes most moderates, liberals, democrats and general bush haters. we sink a fuckin fortune into tv ads, infomercials, pamphlets, etc to spread the message. we have record numbers of volunteers. booom. baaaam.

now we have a peer pressure type of thing going on among smart, educated people that trickles down to family and friends. now u vote for obama. ok. he wins. BAM. he gets inagurated. then- BOOM. a "terrorist" attacks. the people turn on barack hussein obama. some knucklehead shoots obama. kills obama. now- u gotta lotta pissed off smart people. the smart, liberal, educated, open mined people are fighting the dumb, stuck-in-their ways, bible thumping ignoramuses. the blacks are fighting the whites. the latinos are fighting blacks. everybodys killing middle easterners and asians. now we have an all out civil fuckin war.




but, this aint yer old fashion 1863 civil war. no no no. this aint a african civil war. this aint a palestine vs the jews thing. this is America. the home of mega-weapons, all walks of life, the most powerful, the rich stupid people! this is the land that would have a juducial body rule marshall law (thanks bush) and rebellion would be swift.

the current economic scene plays perfectly in their created plan as the "world" economy is in full swing. soon, the g7 will run it all.

basically, i hope obama wins smoothly. i hope he helps out poor people (he ONLY speaks about middle class) and i hope he doesnt get assassinated.

Good luck and get groceries!

1.K-Beta. Inner Loop Records is dropping The Maxx EP Wednesday Oct 29. It's a free download blog jawnt. It's just to keep the people wet until the DJ Alizay/K-Beta mixtape drops next month and the album drops in the first quarter next year. I just got done mixing a joint for K-Beta's record that features Slaine, Reef The Lost Cauze and V Nux. Joint is bonkers! Also, just got back the best K-Beta track EVER! My dude Scott Stallone, who is vicious with the mixes, just sent it over 2 nights ago and it is a joint we are shooting a mini-movie to. It's called "Life Of cRhyme" and it's the most vivid explanation of Beta's life since he got out of jail in 2004. Also, the Overok produced D.C. posse cut ft. Ra The Mc, XO, Southeast Slim, Laelo Hood, AP, & Tabi Bonney will be on that mixtape- that shit is dope. If you are reading this and still don't know who K-Beta is...peep

He'll get someone to do a show with him in allentown, PA (where he stays) and hold him hostage til they record like 6 songs!!! lol. He's a beast on the mic.

Credit Due

So, I recently did a track on Heltah Skeltah's "D.I.R.T." record and my name appears as a co-producer (I was in fact not co-producer..Stu and I made the track together) deep in the credits on the hardcopy. My dude Stu Bangas name appears next to the track all big and bold and on all the press releases and such. One may wonder... Well, his manager got us the placement and he looked out for his client rather than me. It's O-K! Karma tends to have my back...

On another, bigger note-I was reading hiphopupdate and saw that Ch-Lo the producer had a similar situation with "A-Millie" ala Lil Wayne and Bangledesh...
