Revisit The History Of The Roc! Damon Dash Describes How To Make Money And Still Be Broke! ***messymandella***


Whatever happened to Beanie Sigel, Memphis Bleek and that rapper, Freeway?

I witnessed the entire Roc A Fella Records in concert while in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Why did Jay Z become a multi million dollar mogul and his entire team were left to fend for themselves?

It was obvious Beanie Sigel took the Roc split the hardest.

He was suffering mentally, financially, and professionally, but I remained his fan.

I wanted to believe that Sigel’s career and his financial predicament would eventually change and by the Grace Of God, he would be able to land on his feet again.

It is tough world, when you are in the only girl in your neighborhood, repping for “Beans!”

I wanted him back in the forefront of Philadelphia rappers,but it never happened that way…

When I hear Meek Mill and others pay homage to the Philly rap elite that paved the way, most people think of the rapper Cassidy, but the first MC’s that come to my mind are Beanie Sigel and Freeway.

Those are the ones that flourished and we must remember Peedi Crack who I assumed also,would be doing big things for his town.

Why wouldn’t they be able to work together and make their town proud again?

I am not trying to be insensitive as Cam’ron in “Paid In Full” when he said, “People get shot every day.” but truthfully we all know “Rappers get locked up every day.”

Now Beanie Sigel is at a halfway house and now he can concentrate on bringing money and his talent to the game while getting his life back in order.

I still believe that Jay-Z could have tossed Beanie a million dollars, and let by bygones be bygones.

Some people will argue about them having beef.

Let’s be truthful, if you are struggling and you in your heart know that you helped someone’s empire and they gave you the cold shoulder, you wouldn’t be a little pissed off?

If I saw someone I was beefing with 2 years from now starving or about to get their house or car repossessed, no doubt I would help even if they called me every name in the world.

I would do it for their children, and for the friendship we once had, that we let slip away for whatever the reason.

That doesn’t mean we would be friends again, but out of humanity.

You should never forget who held you down.

I know it has to be crazy one minute to have thoughts of millions and then can’t find anyone to let you have $50.00 dollars.

Beanie needed someone.


 
Why didn’t they stop him from serving time?

They all could have helped.
 
Loyalty never dies.

Never

 
Beanie Sigel will be in a halfway house until Decemeber 2014.
This is the time for the old “ROC BOYZ” to squash that beef and also regain their empire with their families.
 
They don’t have a reliable platform to present their music.

Many Hip Hop fans have asked,”Why doesn’t Jay Z,still show love to men that were part of his team. ”
 
Roc A Fella Records had a Hip Hop Renaissance but money and brothers losing loyalty will destroy everyone you are riding with, and that sadly happened to Beanie, and the rest of the team.
 
Get them all back in the studio.
 
Freeway is one of the best lyricist out here, period
 
He needs that door opened and Jay Z could open it with his eyes closed.
 
It would not move a piece of lint in his million dollar pockets.
 
They need you Jay Z, Beanie needs you and it is time to squash the beef and relive hip hop history, and musical beats that were the ROC’s trademark. Don’t understand what happened to the Roc, everyone has their own story?
 
I guess it depends on who you ask, when I witnessed Beanie Sigel during an interview it was so embarrassing that he was so high, his freestyle was barely audible and you could tell he was really going through some mess.

 
How could Beanie Sigel not be able to pay income on a million dollars?
 
That made absolutely no sense, he was a part of Jay Z’s musical team, not his janitorial team!

They all were suppose to be passed the million dollar mark as a team.
 
Beanie Sigel knew his destiny and realized he was facing sentence alone, maybe that is when he was just trying to survive.
 
He knew it absolutely nothing he could financially do, so he just let it happen.

 
Someone could have done something,when he was drowning in debt.
 
Your life becomes hectic and you are unsure of who you can trust and who will betray you.
 
In the end it seems no one in the Roc A Fella Records was worth the trust.
 
Now bring the sound back, let those men have a chance to make music.
 
Jay Z, you could make that happened in your sleep.
 
We can hold on to beef so damn long, until they are gone and then it is too late.

The internal and external struggle between   Kendrick Lamar  and Drake began  after Kendrick’s diss that proved he didn’t have Google Maps. Kendrick Lamar claimed to be the “King Of New York” while opening up cable bills in Compton, California.
 

 
 
Yup, no Google maps…
 
People seem to forget Big Sean’s verse  in the song “Control” and the fact that it was Big Sean‘s song.
 
     Kendrick’s verse in “Control” aimed at the new class of rappers and autotune singers  in the game. Those lyrics ruffled the Canadian’s feathers. Drake’s eyebrows  made it clear that “Nothing Was The Same.”
 
      Now that Kendrick Lamar has killed the scene with his “Blacker The Berry” joint, Drake must retaliate.
 
This short film is captivating to anyone that has 15 extra minutes to spare!

What Caused Lady Gaga’s Decline?***messymandella***


 
It was in the month of February in 2007 and  a young Italian beauty by the name of Stefani Germanotta  swept the Entertainment  World off it’s feet with her wig cap antics and comedy relief labeled fashion foolery.
 
 She was ingenuously embraced by queens and diva alliances for her sexual freedom and her repetitive support for LGBT  rights.
 
EVERYONE LOVED GAGA!

       The audience on Logo TV worshiped  her and she was on her way to being the new self proclaimed Queen Of Pop, but Mrs. Madonna, didn’t have time for those shenanigans! Madonna  baptized Lady  Gaga with insults, and the cat fight was on…

          Lady Gaga even caught the eye of the Celebrity Gay Men Mafia and Elton John and Perez Hilton gave Gaga the green light, with sparkles and glitter of course, but their lives were all complete.

           Yes, and Elton John decided to put his glittery two cents in  the mix and Madge and Gaga decided to go to war. How dare Lady GaGa come after the Queen Of Pop, Madonna, my favorite female artist.

Madonna was here before the Dinosaurs, and she will be here for the resurrection.

            Lady Gaga was unstoppable until  she did a song with R.Kelly, telling the self-proclaimed man of intrigue to do what he wanted to her body. Lady Gaga did NOT  do a thorough investigation or adequate  research, anything could have occurred!

        Lady Gaga desired more attention, so everyone had to know for every awards show how she would arrive. One sad occasion, she was on stage dressed like a dinner napkin. 

Everyone loved GaGa, and if one didn’t agree with “Mammy Monster” you were bombarded with insults.

Ask Kelly Osborne and Perez Hilton, Gaga  had reinforcements also known as monster children that were ready to go into a Twitter Tirade after recess. Lady Gaga could hit  a G5 note that some of are more seasoned divas couldn’t complete on stage and a some singers could only dream of this ,  if it was pre- recorded. 

      

         Gaga who has an immensely ability to naturally steal the spot light, still required more attention. After a while she ventured into the “I am Momma Monsters, and you are my little monsters territory” and her brain became unhinged and something left Gaga’s brain one nugget short of a Happy Meal.

      Her  unearthly talent and biblical knowledge gained her more attention by the Vigilant Citizens’   activist as she illuminated herself in the forefront of the Marc Dice’s lifelong quest to cease and deflate the imaginary Illuminati agency for Satan, the Illuminati Mascot…

       It became evident that she was pleading for attention at times when it came to her “Art” because if you are a performer the appearance  sometimes outweighs the talent, but Gaga didn’t require all of this expression and applause because she had talent. Lady Gaga would dress up like  a ham sandwich, a meatloaf, a stack of hay  or a 1922 Tap Dancer.

         She adorned herself in Latex to meet the queen. She was sweating for fashion, she was sweating like hell, but she did it for the “art”

So why is Gaga not the center of the universe anymore?

     Our admiration in her fashion and interviews became more important than her musical compositions. It is difficult to focus on the song  notes coming out of her mouth when she has  on a meat dress, or a fur vagina on top of her head.

        She burned so bright and then she fizzled…

     No one can determine the day or the  moment GaGa lost her relevance, but numbers don’t lie.

She gave us too much, too damn fast.
 


 
Her little monsters are still in love with their queen, but as a whole, we grew disinterested in her utter narcissistic behavior that was more arrogance, then admiration and modesty that we fell in love with while watching her on LOGO TV, had disappeared forever.  Even when Lady Gaga put chicken flour on her face and used finger paints  to design her face, we still were not intrigued…
 

Lady-Gaga-Goes-on-ARTPOP-Tweeting-Spree-Announces-Applause-Video-Release-Date
 
     She copied  composed a pop hit, “Born This Way” Express Yourself  By Madonna that received  musical acclaim, but her star was fading into an oblivion and Katy Perry delivered her hit song, “Roar” and meanwhile Lady Gaga rolled around on the floor on   Saturday Night Live with R.Kelly on top of her, and it was disgusting. 

 

It was like if you came home early and you catch your  friend humping your uncle it is not illegal, just disturbing and gross.
