Lil Wes - Interview

TooKnown's Interview of the Day

This dudes been all over the video spot for a minute mostly supported by with his 4 videos gettin over a SHITload of views. Dudes also been seen or should I say heard on 102Jamz in Orlando. Dude has crazy flow and sick lyrics...not someone to sleep on. You know I stay on my grind, I hit dude up and got this interview check it and the ill tracks at the bottom!!!!!!

(TooKnown)1. What up bro, thanks for comin to do this interview. Wanna start off with who you are and where u come from??
(Lil Wes)No problem. Well my name is Lil Wes i'm from Palm Beach County Florida. I'm currently residing in Orlando Florida right now.

2. How long you been in the rap game for??
The rap game...basically i've alway been into music. Since I was a baby whenever my mom would take me to a toy store and try to see what kind of toy I would like, for some reason I would always tend to go for something musical. Be it a small set of drums or a mini piano. Even in church they used to have me up on stage with the band just messin around tryna get my chops. But as far as rapping specifically , I started rapping at the age of 8 and just fell in love with it. It came easy to me and I decided that I wanted that to be my career. But as far as any real grinding, I haven't grinded so much in my entire life than I have in the past few months. Moving to Orlando was the best move I could have made career-wise. Most of the Superproducers who make some of your favorite beats are in Orlando.
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
3. What artist would you say you look up to most??
Well I respect every artists whether in the game or not who is out there grinding, making good music and giving the fans what they're looking for. But as far as artists I look up to, I would say that I look up to all the greats; Jay Z, Nas, Pac, Biggie, Mase, Weezy, Fabolous, TI, Cassidy umm...I could go on for days but i'm gonna stop there lol.

4. When you told people you wanted to be a rapper, did anyone say you couldn't do it??
Actually I used to freestyle alot and I was in a little rap group when I was younger. It was me, my two brothers and one of my childhood friends. We used to make our own beats, produce our own tracks and pass out cds. We actually got pretty much the entire school behind us but then we started becoming interested in different things and didn't too much focus on music or the possibility of having a career in it.

5. Who do think your flow is most like??
My flow has been compared to that of Fabolous, Mase as well as a few other rappers. Both Fabolous and Mase are two of my favorite rappers so those comparisons are quite an honor. But I guess I would have to say Mase because he is all I used to listen to when I was a young child. I respected the fact that he left music for the lord but there still a part of me that wishes...

6. I saw your vid on and I couldn't stop jamming out to that song. How'd u come up with that idea and get it posted up there??
I've actually got I believe either 3 or 4 videos on there. Well I just make music because that's what I love to do. I actually did not know of prior to them posting my video. Me, my brother and my roomates were playing around at the apartment and we decided that I needed some videos to increase my exposure. The video was recorded on that day and posted up on youtube. I was still thinking of ways to get people to go check out the video on youtube when a friend of mine called me and let me know about the video being on WSHH. When I saw the amount of views I recieved and the amount of comments, I was shocked and was happy that my name was actually buzzing around the world like that.
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
7. What kinda artists have you worked with?? Who would you like to work with??
Well I have worked with a few local artists and am currently working with a few that I can't really discuss at this stage. There is a lot of hidden talent in Florida and I believe that within the next year that Florida will be making even more noise than it is now. Not just as far as artists there are also some great producers such as "The Core" who are some of the hottest producers in Palm Beach County.

8. Being that your pretty local, well to me I guess, what studio do you record at?? How long you been there??
Well as of right now I am currently in Orlando working on a few projects. Up here I am recording with a group of producers who I have been working with for a couple of months called the "Spaceboys". You will get to hear some of their work very soon, they are ridiculously talented.

9. Do you have any new projects in the works right now?? Any new singles??
I actually have so much going on right now it's crazy. Unfortunately I can't really speak on everything just know that I am currently working on my mixtape which will be out towards the beginning of next year so be sure to look out for that. At the moment I am also working with a few different producers trying to figure out what single I am going to come out with.

10. Where do you see yourself in...idk...5-10 years??
Wow 5 to 10 (sounds like a prison sentence) that's a long way off. I dont know about all that. Next year I expect to be getting some serious radio play and doing some shows. You guys be on the lookout for me, I have been out here grinding and now my time is coming.

11. Well its been good man..thanks for doin this interview...any last words or shootouts??
Anytime. Well I would like to give a shoutout to my Fly Boy Team (Jay Stylez, Infamous JC & Sony), my family for believing in me, shout out to all my fans, shout out to Street Grindaz, G1, SP, my cousin Sam, The Core and Spaceboys. There alot of people of I missed but I could go on forever and they already know I got them! There are a lot of people that I missed.

iSouljaBoyTellem - Review

Slander's Review of the Day

Okay, before I begin, I want to preface that this IS a Soulja Boy album we're talking about. I have to review it in the mindset that this is a certain type of music of its own, it's not necessarily comparable to the type of hip-hop that most artists respect. So, I'm setting aside my opinions on Soulja Boy himself and what he's about, and I'm givin' you my unbiased review on what he's tryin' to bring with his sophomore release, iSouljaBoyTellem. His first album, whether you like Soulja Boy or not, was honestly a joke. 90% of the tracks were absolute garbage. It went platinum due to "Crank That" and the album's overall absurdity, which actually bordered on humor. His sophomore album is noticeably better, he actually puts effort into producing his songs and tries his best to deliver somewhat decent lyrics. It's not terrible at all, there really is something interesting about several of these tracks, but not enough to make it a good album. His first single, "Bird Walk", which is pretty much the successor to "Crank That", was released through YouTube months ago via dance videos bent on viral marketing. The album's features include Gucci Mane, Shawty Lo (he sucks), Juney Boondata, Yo Gotti, Show Stoppas, Sammie, and Sean Kingston. While "Bird Walk" and a couple others are solid, I don't think it's going to be enough to carry the album to platinum status this time. But who am I kidding, he'll probably go double platinum. Damn it.

Album Art

He's got his city reflected off his glasses sportin a denim fitted. I'm just feelin' it. The dude may not be a real hip-hop artist, but he does have some swag. He has to, or else he'd already be out the industry a long time ago.

Album Length

He's got 16 tracks, over an hour of music (yes, music). No problems here.

Top 5 Tracks

This was VERY difficult to pick the last two. If you disagree with the first three, you're crazy.

1. Bird Walk

2. Shoppin' Spree (ft. Gucci Mane & Yo Gotti)

3. Yamaha Mama (ft. Sean Kingston)

4. Kiss Me Thru The Phone (ft. Sammie)

5. Whoop Rico (ft. Show Stoppas)

Honorable mention: Turn My Swag On, for being one of the most annoying songs of all time, and yet part of me actually likes it, go figure.

1. Bird Walk - Like I said, the successor to "Crank That". The beat is fun and upbeat, overall the production is definitely better than that of "Crank That". This is obviously not about lyrics, it's a club banger with an accompanying 'Bird Walk' dance. I gave this track #1 status because it's clearly a Soulja Boy song. This is what he does. Straight from the man himself, "We call this club music, I call it swag music, I call it entertainment. I call it get money music, Man I call it, Soulja Boy music."

2. Shoppin' Spree - The beat alone, makes this a hot song. Best produced beat in a Soulja Boy song yet, by far. Credit due to Mr. Hanky, ain't know him but he gets respect for this track. SB's lyrics aren't even really that bad either, probably the best I've ever heard from him, even though that's not saying much. Gucci Mane's flow was pretty on point, Yo Gotti has an interesting voice.. and uh, yeah that's about it. Haha, for real, this is purely about the beat, no artist shined on the track for any lyrical prowess that's for sure. For all of Soulja Boy's past Super Nintendo video game sounding productions, I have to give him props for makin this one happen.

3. Yamaha Mama - You can't hate this song. You really can't. The production is not only great (we got Polow da Don on this!), it's overall a very well-done track. Sean Kingston absolutely makes the song with his contribution. He has one verse that he repeats three times throughout the song, does the bridge, as well as singing the hook. This really should be Sean Kingston featuring Soulja Boy. The hook features a sample of "Vroom on a yamaha, chromed out eleven hundred" from Lil Wayne & Birdman's "Stuntin Like My Daddy". Soulja Boy's lyrics are pretty much trash, even for an r&b style song like this, and yet you really don't take too much notice due to Kingston's performance. Soulja Boy doesn't get that kind of help on the rest of the album that's for sure.

4. Kiss Me Thru The Phone - Honestly, this song in its entirety, sucks. But the hook is interesting thanks to Sammie. Cmon now, I don't have much to work with here!!

5. Whoop Rico - "When we start dancing, what we do, we hurt they feelings." The beat is very similar to "Knuck If You Buck" by Crime Mob, and is pretty much an attempt at a club banger with some sort of dance as well. "Wit My Yums On" and "Rubber Bands" were runner-ups, all three of these songs are just about their beat, because otherwise they aren't worthy of any mention.

Best Feature

Soulja Boy easily could've done without every single one of his features with the exception of Sean Kingston. Kingston takes Yamaha Mama from a disgrace to a catchy pop/r&b radio-play capable track. I've always been a big fan of Kingston, his first album was a huge success and I'm hoping to hear some new stuff from him soon, it's been a while!

The Remedy - Interview

TooKnown's Interview of the Day

Dude right here is sick with tha flow and comes from that place where u shake them dreads....after the interview peep the tracks below, dude fucks with DJ Unreal, so u know he's legit DONT SLEEP!!!!!

(TooKnown)1. Lets start off by tellin everyone out there who u are and were u come from??
(The Remedy)I'm The Remedy, from Santa Clara, 408, the Bay Area, Cali !!! I rep my turf, I rep that bay all day ya dig?
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
2. How long have you been in the rap game??
The passion has been with me since day one, but if you wanna say it professionaly. About 2 years ago. I got a big breaktrhough when I rapped for Mistah F.A.B. over the phone for a segment he used to have
on his radio show.

3. Since u come from the Bay, would u say your style is the same or different than normal Bay artists??
I grew up in the 90's so a lot of my sound is influenced by the Gangsta rap and Mob music we had out here. Some of y'all might be familiar with the Hyphy movement we have as well. With me you get a mix of old bay and new bay. My style is me, but you get the good sounds with me.

4. What's your take on the other artists from the Bay??
They're the ones that paved a way for me and other new artists comin out the Bay. E-40, Too Short, Spice 1, Digital Underground, San Quinn, JT The Bigga FIgga, Big Rich, Bailey, Ya Boy, The Mob Figaz, Clyde Carson, Turf Talk, Mistah F.A.B..... Shit the list goes on haha. But I owe it all to them!

5. I heard you got a new tape comin out. Wanna give a lil info bout that??
Yessir, Wake The Game Up. Hosted & Mixed by my homie DJ UnReal. Its my debut mixtape, and its finna be a hot one! I will show the world why its called what it is! Just be on the lookout for that, droppin real real soon! The features are gonna be local and of course people from Florida yadida!
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
6. Do you think Hip Hop is where it should be?? What can you do to help it out??
Thats a good question...... Hip Hop is and will always be around. Ain't nothin gonna change that.
But theres a certain sitiuation in hip hop thats happening. A lot of so called artists are getting
deals for songs that I pretty much think are complete bull shit. (Yes Soulja Boy im talkin about you!) Hip hop will stay alive cuz real people like me will keep doin what we do. Never bow down to that Bubble Gum rap y'all fakes be puttin out! You can quote me on this, all you rappers that just make shit like Crank Dat, etc. should be exterminated! haha.

7. There's been some recent beef with 2 young artists in the game, Soulja Boy and Charles Hamilton. What's your take on that situation??
First of all, shouts out to Hamilton. He's doin his thing. mixtape after mixtape. Soulja Girl needs to quit with all this bullshit he puts out. Dude is trash. I aint just saying this to get some exposure either. You are the gayest rapper out there and Hamilton just put you in your place. You tried to go at Ice-T and others but dude come on! Didn't your ass have a gay sex tape out or some shit? Go crawl back under whatever rock you came out of and leave rap alone!

8. If you could have one MAJOR feat. on your single, who would you choose??
The Game. Ever since the first time I heard him I was hypnotized (No Homo). Dude is just too raw. Ask anyone I know, they'll tell you he's my favorite rapper. Shouts out to Game and the whole Black Wall Street.

9. Where do you see yourself in 5 years??
Livin my dream, makin hits. Livin in Miami with a fine chica on my arm haha. Workin on an album and givin back to the communities that raised me!

Da Realist - Review

Slander's Review of the Day

A question that's sure to stir up some controversy, who's the realest rapper on top of shit these days? Plies seems pretty confident with his three albums entitled The Real Testament, Definition of Real, and now Da Realist. Too bad he has a huge reputation for being one of the most fake goons in the game today. Regardless, Plies still makes hits and gets my respect for some quality singles in his first two tapes. Da Realist is Plies' second release in only six months after Definition of Real, which is a big deal considering there are over 30 tracks between them both. Overall, production value of Da Realist would probably fit somewhere in between his first two tapes, with a few above average tracks, several average, and the rest just plain boring. I'm not the biggest fan of this tape, it definitely isn't his "best work so far" as he's quoted as saying, probably because his top songs don't top his best songs on his past releases, but there are definitely a few quality tracks worthy of radio play. With that said, his lyrics are better overall as he focuses a bit more on real issues (hey maybe now he's putting the word "real" to use) instead of just talking about sex in every song. Since I'll only be showing you a Top 5, I really need to point out how terrible "I Chase Paper" and "Fuck U Gon' Do Bout it" are. Really, they should've just been cut. Features include Chris J, Sean Garrett, and Ashanti. Props to Sean Garrett for gettin on tracks nowadays instead of just producing, he's got a pretty different voice and sometimes can sound a bit wack, but he doesn't sound half-bad on "Street Light".

Album Art

Ehh.. never a strong point for Plies. He tries hard to look raw and to be honest, I don't see it. His first album had better art.

Album Length

We've got 16 tracks on here, if you discount those two I mentioned that sucked in the tape synopsis, you still got 14 tracks haha, and that's definitely enough for a major release. Nice job Plies with hittin us with two loaded albums in six months, real talk.

Top 5

1. Heard Of Me

2. Pants Hang Low (prod. Mannie Fresh)

3. Gotta Be

4. Put It On Ya (ft. Chris J)

5. Me and My Goons

1. Heard Of Me - I'm feelin Plies' flow on this track all the way. He's got swag on this track for sure, somethin' bout the dude's voice and delivery in this song just brings it to that level. Lyrics are on point, production is just as good as it needs to be, nothing special. This edges out Pants Hang Low because of it's uniqueness in Plies' style.

2. Pants Hang Low - Best produced track on the album. Clearly, because it's Mannie Fresh, almost everything he uses his classic 'boom boom clap' on gets airplay. "Will I still fuck her I don't know yeah probably haha!", only Plies. His flow fits the song perfectly, his lyrics really aren't bad at all, and the chorus is damn catchy. There's a reason this was released as his first single. "I'm from the hood and that's how shit goes!"

3. Gotta Be - Plies is a realist on this track. Whether you respect the dude as a true goon or not, the story he tells on this song is real talk no doubt. His lyrics are top-notch, probably one of the best on the album. The beat is a little something chill mixed with that feeling of reflection. Quality track right here that hopefully raises Plies' credibility as a real hip-hop artist.

4. Put It On Ya - Plies wouldn't have a chance with this song if it wasn't for Chris J (who I've never heard about, even his wikipedia entry got removed due to a "lack of importance" haha!). Plies' lyrics are pretty much exactly what he's said on about 20 other songs, just now with some "original" metaphors. The song is catchy due to Chris, that's all.

5. Me and My Goons - This may have the most simplistic beat of any song I've heard in a while, and for some reason it's extremely catchy. The flow just crawls, there ain't another song on this album that you can slow tip to like this. If Plies only changed it up a bit he could've kept this track for gettin' a bit boring towards the end. He does sound drunk the entire time, haha, which he even clarifies "my goons paranoid so please don't flinch, cause all my goons ain't got good sense, we all dead drunk, and all us lit but I love my goons cause they tote they shiiiit.." It's Plies, that's a good verse for him, hell it made me laugh.

Best Feature

Chris J, no competition. Ashanti was useless on her track and Sean Garrett wasn't enough to save the disappointing "Street Light". Chris makes his song a top track, so clearly he gets this credit without hesitation.
