Leading up to the release of his The Piecemaker 3: Return Of The 50 MCs on July 9, DJ Tony Touch is releasing never seen before clips he’s recorded over the last 20 years. Kicking things off is footage from 1994 at the Gavin Convention in New Orleans, where Busta and the late ODB kick a few raps, which of course later ended up as “Woo Hah” and “Brooklyn Zoo”
In an interview with Rolling Stone magazine, Busta Rhymes spoke about the significance guest spots have had on the hip hop industry. The superstar rapper shared his opinion as to why such towering figures like Nas, Eminem and Jay-Z don’t feature on as many artists‘ work as other stars.
“There’s one of two reasons to me why the same people appear on every song: one reason is either they’re just the hottest dudes, and the other reason is…” he said before pausing. “It’s interesting to me that Eminem isn’t on a lot of people’s sh*t. It’s interesting to me that Nas isn’t on a lot of people’s sh*t. It’s interesting to me that Jay-Z isn’t on a lot of people’s sh*t. A lot of the very dangerously lyrical motherf*ckers. I think there’s a fear factor that plays a role, because sometimes you really don’t know if you’re going to be happy with what you asked for – especially if you might get your a** whooped on your own f*cking record!” Busta was also asked when he realized features were becoming more and more important.
“A long time ago, especially for the artists that can’t carry a record on their own,” Busta answered. “And since the era of developing artists has died with record companies over 10 years ago, a lot of dudes had to come out here and figure out how to get hot on their own. A lot of the times, the novelty of a name that’s popping in the market is the easiest way. So the feature became more important than the record a long time ago. It’s unfortunate, but I think there’s a change happening: A lot of the new dudes aren’t doing it. They started to realize chasing down a hot motherf*cker was a sh*t-ton of work, cause when a hot motherf*cker think he’s hot, they become divas real quick.”
“Damn haters won RT @TMZ: #Breaking Reebook Gives Rick Ross The Boot. “So why they don’t protest Eminem for all that crazy sh*t he be saying???” “And I know they ain’t listening to UOENO so why they give a f*ck? “And I never seen a b*tch pass out on a Molly they stay up all night so how is that rape? U.O.E.N.O” “I bet them ppl protesting dnt even buy Reebox freedom of speech if u dnt like it dnt listen to it” “Every b*tch I been with on Molly try to rape me and after that they up all night after I pass out” “Ok idk but its still some bullsh*t RT @Pushermania: @slimthugga Eminem has been protested about 100 times”
And I guess people put rape over murder cause people can talk about killing n***as all day that’s cool but u put a b**** on Molly. They ain’t care about all the dope he was rapping bout selling when they signed him but now they tripping after all that promo. All I’m saying is its a rap song and he didn’t say he bout to rape a b**** so he shouldn’t have lost a deal over it. Before we know it rappers are not going to be able to curse no mo on their albums cause somebody whose not a rap fan was offended f*** that.
It’s been over two years since Eminem released his last solo project Recovery, which dropped in 2010. After stating that he had begun work on his eighth solo album last year, Marshall is reportedly deep into the process of recording the LP. During an interview with Billboard.com, Shady Records president Paul Rosenberg said that Em will release the project post-Memorial Day and that listeners can expect it soon. ”We fully expect to be releasing a new Eminem album in 2013. He’s been working on it for some time,” he said. “It’s safe to say that it will be post-Memorial Day at some point, but we’re not exactly sure when. We’ve got some dates locked in for him to perform live in Europe in August, so we’re trying to see what else lines up.”
Additionally, Rosenberg reveals that Yelawolf has begun recording his sophomore LP in Nashville, Tennessee and that 50 Cent’s Street King Immortal will release in the first half of 2013. He also noted that Slaughterhouse will record the follow up to last year’s welcome to: OUR HOUSE after each member releases a solo project. In October, Eminem hinted that a new album would drop in 2013 by putting the year on a limited edition baseball hat inspired by the Detroit Tigers. In addition to headlining a pair of summer festivals in Reading and Leeds, England, he will executive produce Skylar Grey‘s debut Don’t Look Down.
Financial freedom is something we all want. And for 50 Cent’s new video, he frees himself of all material possessions. Says Fif:
