Rolling Stone - Jay-Z

The Boss graces the cover Rollingstone with a insightful interview. It’s
rather weird how the article following Jay is titled Artful Dodger.

Dr. Donda West was eulogized by friends and former colleagues Friday afternoon at a memorial service held at Chicago State University.

Barry Bonds gets indicted….damn they’re trying lock us all up fo’ sho!

    Yeah that interview with Jay’s nephew sounded like they were talking 2 J about his nephew. I almost forgot who the interview was about with all them references to J. Sorry little homie, until you make a good track your career is already dead. Lupe’s album cover is kinda hot….gotta let it grow on me though (pause). Other than that, pretty uneventful week. Still waiting on some hot fire, exclusivity from you guys here at PMD.

    Most of you seemed to side with Jay on the LL vs Jay conflict. Lets see now, your a artist on Def Jam concerned about your lack of promotion, and your label President is posing on the cover of yet another magazine. Anyone else see the problem here. Cant be a Businessman AND the Business-Man!

    What happened to self reliance and self sufficiency on LL’s part? I believe I said this another post, but LL where are the youtube video’s, where are the cameo’s, where is the mixtape etc.? He can afford to do all of these things so he needs to stop crying and start working, Jay definitely is! This magazine cover being a prime example. Face it LL the game has changed and you don’t want to change with it.

    Ultimately, YouTube & mixtapes dont make u platinum. Walmart (40% of all records sold in the U.S.), Target, radio spins, and the hit song to spark the latter are what do the trick. Translated thats distribution, distribution, label A&Rs, contacts, bribery, with artist talent. 5/6 is all label. When the biggest artist in the world at one point (Fifty) started complaining, what does that tell you. No such thing as the grass roots MULTI-platinum promotional campaign.

    Fifty created much buzz in the mixtape game in NEW YORK. From there it spread down the east coast. His affiliation with DRE & EMINEM gave him instant credibility on the left coast and midwest. But, the hit song (IN DA CLUB), combined with the power of Interscope’s push as evidenced by his early XXL, SOURCE covers & his monster pre-’Get Rich Or Die Trying’ Hot 97 & Power 105 airplay, and well its been Barry Bonds ever since.

    Every thing you mentioned above revovles around making good relevant music that connects with your audience and if Joe Blow can make a hit song in his basement what’s LL’s excuse? If LL had a hot enough song under his belt why wouldn’t Def Jam push it. At the end of the day make a hit.

    Did Jay really want to make another album No, but he piggybacked off of American Gangster The Movie to draw some blood from a turnip. Repackaged material no matter what you call it.

    Jay used American Gangster The Movie to keep himself relevant what is LL doing to keep himself relevant? The only thing we’ve heard of LL lately is his beefing with Jay. Hey I guess that’s one way to stay relevant, by complaining.

    Businessmen/Presidents of music labels dont need to keep themselves ‘relevant.’
