    If I knew who this YESSIR dude was,I would wipe the floor with "her" little bitchass and smack her in her little pussy face with a copy of Illmatic,Enta Da 36 Chambas,and Ready To Die.As I was standing above this cream puff,i would stare into her eyes,tell her that bitches wear tight jeans,and then leave an imprint on her face of my Timberland boot sole.Respect the architect you little cupcake,take off the man thong and stop praising culture killing homo erotic booty buffing garbage that is YMCMB....my challenge to YESSIR...Where you from?...how old are you?...and why are you such a groupie for such a lameass crew of homo thugs?...Until you drop some knowledge that is credible, you will just be the HipHopDX assclown who everyone thinks is a punk bitch.Pretty sad when you can't even get props behind a key board...pussy bwoy.You're probably talking a bubble bath right now with scented candles there fairy dust.Real hip hop has no place for you...i really would love to run into you face to face, but you are just a coward behind a keyboard and nothing more. 5 letters IWFUU....it stands for I Would Fuck You Up...for real.

    Unsure how I feel about this. Shouldn't affect Good Kid' really as Kendrick's all ready been working with Dre for nearly a year, this seemed inevitable and it is a joint venture with TDE. Thinking positive, you never know, Black Hippy could be the best thing to happen to the Detox sessions.

  • So Icy Boi!

    lmao. dis Kendrick Lame dude cant rap & now he singz to Dr. Drez dead label..... Detox iz an urban legend black flokz. lmao.... dis niggaz career is dead already. swag

    • Shaan

      K. Dots the best thing to happen to hip hop in a while. Section.80 was album of 11'. Ur a standard dickhead with no ears for sound and quality. Some YMCB piece of shit u. ged2000000 i agree with u 100. But look at the difference between kendrick and the likes of bishop lamont, stat quo, slim the mobster and hayes. K dot well ahead of em. i just hope detox and good kid drop at the same time similar to 2001 and MMLP.....when aftermath made its name! ;)

      Are you serious bro. Kendrick lamar is better than most rappers putting out shit nowadays. You just mad he signed to aftermath. Anyway I'm a little worried now. Aftermath has a habbit of sitting on artists without releasing albums and then just letting them go. after 2 or 3 years. Its happened to loads of rappers signed to the label.

  • Slruim

    Uh oh. Kendrick and Schoolboy Q sold their souls...... Now interscope owns them now. It's gonna be really hard if they want to release shit now if interscope does not see their music as "high profit" music. Or, they might "puppet" their music if the don't sell as much as they're supposed to, like Lupe Fiasco. I Hope I'm wrong. I would have prefered if they had kept with their Indie label. They might make more money themselves, but seriously, the music might suffer........

    LISTEN UP DRAKE IS THE LEADER OF THE NEW SCHOOL RAPPERS. DRAKE LET PEOPLE LIKE J COLE KENDRICK AND ASAP OPEN UP FOR HIM TO LET THEM GET SOME EXPOSURE.

    • NOSIR

      No u listen YESSIR my stupid internet cousin J.Cole is the leader of the new school rappers cause his lyrics, flow, and talent can't be matched he way to much of a beast for Drake and J.Cole doesn't need Drake to give him any exposure cause last I checked J.Cole brought out Drake the first time they were on stage together during one of J.Cole's oversea tours so if anything J.Cole is schooling Drake showing him the ropes J.Cole is selfmade and is able to stand on his own to feet he's pracatially been promoting himself without almost no help from CEO Jay-Z even Jay-Z said it in a interview that J.Cole is doing his thing out there by himself really YESSIR the only reason Drake would let J.Cole open for him is cause they are good friends but J.Cole is a independant artist and can develop his own fanbase winning over fans with his talent so he doesn't need Drake to show him any shine obivously Drake needs J.Cole though cause he did ask to be on J.Cole's In The Morning song J.Cole even let Drizzy be on tour with him so with all that said Drake should really be giving J.Cole a big thanks for showing how to rap real hip hop not that fake pop rap shit see it's a COLE WORLD SO ALL HAIL KING J.COLE he is the boss of the new school rappers in the game right now SO I HAVE 28 LETTERS FOR U NOW ROC NATION DREAMVILLE GOOD MUSIC

    Um yeah. Ever since last spring when yall first heard about dre working with kendrick. niggas be funny. they been signed. i guess they just waited to create a story. The industry is so fake that people do pointless things like wait to announce a deal. Im lost on that one, young. i like these dudes' music so i hope they actually get a chance to come out.

    • NOSIR

      Well they kind of are still underground if u think about it cause they haven't really put out a complete album and have no buzz, or radio play, or even any big hype so at the moment they are kind of in the dark on the back burner with no relevance so basically their still underground until they put out a hit record with smash hit singles and constant radio play only then will they have truely risen from the underground into the mainstream cause they will be talk about almost all the time as well as having buzz or hype and radio hits, and also they will be making real money from album sales, and selling out arena's for concerts

      First time I may agree with that dumb bitch YESSIR; Schoolboys shit was good (not better than Section 80 but good). I hope this gets Ab Soul some play cause out of the whole Black Hippy crew aint no one really given him praise. Most of all though, I hope these dudes don't get bogged down in label shit and get delayed to the point of irrelevance. Nonetheless happy to see this. Hope they put out a Black Hippy Crew album first to get them out to larger audience (without changing their sound tho)

    I was really hoping it wouldnt come to this, dont get me wrong I would love to hear K.Dot and Black hippy over Dr. Dre beats but let's face it, if they dont change their style Jimmy iovine isnt gon give them the push they deserve, all them cats are dope, and interscope is known for pop acts like lady gag, Black eyed peas, etc. This is real hip hop, Aftermath track record isnt that great with dopeness, dont believe me check out Joell ortiz, BishopLamont, Eve, Rakim, Raekwon,etc. Iam extremely happy as a fan but also worried I just got two words for those MCs: Stay True

    • Anonymous

      i was thinkin "OH GREAT" right when i heard it, very sarcastically, because Dre is known for sitting on people, never letting them release albums, then dropping them from Aftermath. These guys are REAL hip-hop, and most importantly i hope they get all the creative control that they deserve and release classics.

All other shit was either good or average, no classics. 50 never released a classic album dumb niggas. Bawse!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
