Aangezien ik tegenwoordig grote fan ben van The Dream… hier de remix met de Def Jam All-Stars.
… en ik kan jullie mededelen dat er een paar hele gruwelijke videoclips aan zitten te komen.
Last weekend in Atlanta, it felt like there were more rappers teaming up to do videos than were going to the BET Hip-Hop Awards.
DJ Khaled and Ace Hood shot a video for the “Let’s Ride” remix in the same location and at the same time as Busta Rhymes started collecting cameos for his “Arab Money” clip. Later that night in the A, Jeezy rolled out the red carpet for friends such as Rick Ross, Fabolous, Jadakiss, Ice Cube, W.C., Busta Rhymes, Young Buck and Khaled on the set of “Who Dat.”
“Shout to Jeezy,” Khaled said after filming his guest spot. “I’m a big fan of Jeezy, and that’s my brother. He’s one of those big boys in the game. He’s shooting a video today, and even if we wasn’t in it, we would have came down just to support. We in his ‘hood. We wanna show that support. We got in the video, and that’s a blessing. Jeezy is on all my albums, and he always supports me. We make great music, and he’s a real dude.”
“He’s like a brother from another mother,” Buck said of Jeezy. “We go way back, from the streets to the raps. We keep our thing real solid. He does his thing, and I show up. I do my thing, and he shows up…. In the A, they know when they see Jeezy move, they see Buck around a lot. The way it was in the streets, we keep it the same way in the rap world.”
“It was a big deal shootin’ this video ’cause Fab came through, and we’re already cool. … Same thing with Busta; we were already cool,” said Shawty Redd, the track’s producer. “The biggest thing was seeing Ice Cube say my name on the track. I had wanted to meet him for a long time, so it was a moment I’ll remember. It was a big thing for all the artists to come support and say my name in the video and support the movement with Jeezy.
“Man, after all these years of hard work, it’s a great feeling to have all these major artists come out and appreciate the work I’ve been doin’ in the game,” he added.
Jeezy co-directed the video. Young said “Who Dat” definitely won’t be the last clip we see from the heralded Recession LP.
” ‘Crazy World’ is next week,” Jeezy said. “I’mma be real: I think I’mma shoot a video for every song on my album. I ain’t got nothing to do. I’m bored. I’ll just shoot a couple of videos.”
The very next day, Jeezy came down to Ice Cube’s video set for “I Got My Locs On,” another clip shot in Atlanta.

DJ Vlad bekent van zijn Tupac mixtapes kreeg vorige maandag een paar klappen toen hij Rick Ross vroeg over zijn gevangenbewaarder verleden.
Het is niet echt duidelijk nog wat er precies gebeurde maar volgens getuigen, kreeg Vlad een klap van iemand uit Ross zijn entourage. De groep “vluchtte” vervolgens…
Vraag me af wat hier nou weer uit zal volgen…hehe police brutality
N.O.R.E. wilt ook graag down zijn met Team F.A.B. Swag.
With a new CNN album on the way Queens bred rapper Noreaga knew he had to do something to put his name in the headlines. So he took off his shirt. In this SOHH exclusive N.O.R.E explains how Rick Ross inspired him to bare his belly for the blogs.
“Hip-Hop on the internet is really based on beef and a bad history,” he told SOHH. “I don’t really have that. I don’t have beef with any other rapper.”
“I said, ‘I know a way that I could get the bloggers and the sites to start talking.’ So I took my shirt off,” he continued. “I took my shirt off to [give] people something to laugh about, to [give] people something to cry about but it made people talk about me.”
Of course, when N.O.R.E. released the photo of his newly acquired extra pounds, the blogs had a field day. Some even compared him to Ross, another big-bellied rapper with a penchant for going topless. Noreaga admits that Ross was an inspiration.
“Absolutely, I’d be a liar if I wasn’t saying that I was inspired when I seen Rick Ross doing it,” Nore said. “I thought it was dope and I thought it was fun and I said, ‘ You know what I can show off my belly too!’ Because as unsexy as it is to certain people, there’s a lot of girls out there that’s chubbychasers!”
Noreaga also used the photo-op to debut his new, iced out Newport box charm. In a quest to be creative and original, the rapper commissioned the custom piece.
“I just said, ‘Why don’t I just go all out and just get a pack of Newports?’ Of course, I put my twist on it and I called it the Noreports. People get a kick out of when they find out that it do open up and it do hold cigarettes.”
This fall, Noreaga and his partner in rhyme Capone will end an eight-year hiatus with the release of a brand new Capone-N-Noreaga album called Channel 10.
“When you watch CNN in New York City it’s actually Channel 10,” N.O.R.E. explains of thr title’s name.
“I’m just real proud of this album,” he continued. “I don’t want to say it’s better than The War Report or even The Reunion but I do want to say is that its on another level. It’s definitely bound to be another classic.”
Norega says he and Capone worked with many different producers to create what he describes as a “global album.” They even got beats from Black Eyed Pea will.i.am, though those tracks didn’t make the cut.
Channel 10 which features production by The Alchemist, DJ Premier and Havoc of Mobb Deep is scheduled to drop on October 21st.
