DX News Bits: Chamillionaire On Odd Future, Christopher "CJ" Wallace, Top Mother's Day Raps

Chamillionaire airs out his feelings about OFWGKTA, Biggie's son talks about not going into music, and GQ lists the best Mother's Day raps.

Odd Future's explosive emergence onto the music scene has been a polarizing journey for fans of Hip Hop who are still unsure what to make of the young rappers. Chamillionaire, a comparative veteran, took to his blog to express his feelings about the group.

"I know they have been getting a lot of press in the industry," Cham wrote. "And they seem to be gaining the interest of a lot of people but most people that I see talking about them can never really tell me any of their songs when I ask. It kinda reminds me of the people that mention Ghetto Boys [sic] as one of the greatest groups from the South but can't name any of their song."

Although Cham said he'd listened to and enjoyed the group's music, his concerns seemed to be centered more on some of the fans who he feels may have jumped onto the OFWGKTA bandwagon.

"I just want to know what you can tell me about the songs in their catalog? [Or] did you listen to them before everyone else started talking about them?"

In other news, the Notorious B.I.G.'s son, Christopher "CJ" Wallace joins the cast of Will Ferrel's newest comedy Everything Must Go. The 14-year old spoke to BVX about his decision not to follow in his father's musical footsteps.

"[If I did music], I feel that a lot would be expected of me, and I'm definitely not up to where my father was."

He also explained why he didn't want to play a younger version of his father in the film Notorious . "I didn't want to do it because it seemed so likely for me to do it. Like Biggie's son is going to play Biggie. After I had my acting coach and really read through it, I started to find out things that I didn't know about him. Then I took more of an interest into it. It was actually fun, going out to New York, living like him, going into his old apartment, doing what he did. It was cool."

Lastly, in celebration of Mother's Day, GQ listed out its Top 10 Rap songs dedicated to moms. At #5 is Nelly's "Luven Me," followed by #3's "I Love My Momma" by Snoop Dogg. Tupac's "Dear Mama" came in at #2 and was beat out by Kanye West's "Hey Mama" from his sophomore effort, Late Registration.

    Lets be serious ppl Hey Mama over Dear Mama regardless if u are a 2PAC fan or not u know the lyrics to that song Hey Mama by Kanye is not even in the same breath as far as impact or revelance

  • alfytitos

    Don't wana sound like a hater or anything but on that top 10 list dance by nas should be in the top 3, I never heard a song where a artist poured out his heart like nas did in that song. also I agree that tupac's dear mama should be over kanyes hey mama. Almost everyone who listens to music has heard dear mama, I even read it as a poem in school when I was younger....as much as I like kanyes song it isn't as effective as pac's song.

      Yes, they do. I listen to 'Pac and I'm a fan of the man's music, so I can't be called a hater when I say the following: 'Pac died in 1996, and people have been making music eversince, why is it so hard do deal with the fact that there are songs better than Pac's and artists who deserve the top spot more because of everything that they've done so far (i.e. Em, Hov, Nas)?
