    based on no experience and zero business acumen and mediocre output. Who gives a f**k what this dumski is gonna do at Atlantic. The new captain on a sinking ship. Welcome to the Double Wood era.

      T.I., Trey Songz and Lupe Fiasco are years in the game and they will stand the test of time (at least Lupe will) and record label doesn't need artists that will stand the test of time, label can sign new artists every year, the hot ones who will SELL and then fell off, label can survive that way, most of them do

    • ANONGANG

      Yeah, hjk, now that's a list of artists that will truly stand the test of time. Lmfao.

      suck a dick bitch what new talent are you bringing to the masses?

  • ?

    Keep finding more rappers to talk about selling drugs and other things that motivate thugs to find way to get locked up. Meet the evolution of the house nigga.

  • Rick Ross

    I now I dont forgive but I hope Jeezy do. HuGhhh

  • Young King

    Well, William's album dropped. We seen what his 1st week numbers were, Jeezy sold more the 1st week in addition he's now in the corporate office at Atlantic. Can we say he won now or...

    • Bawse

      No, Rick Ross had 3 singles spinning before the album dropped. So Sophisticated Touch N' You and Hold me back. Young Jeezy had lose my mind, all white everything, ballin, FAME, Shake life (flopped) dropped 4 mixtapes, include a damn movie and seen his album was pushed back at least 4 times due to a lack of interest from his own fan base. AND he dropped during the Holidays to help his sales. Rick Ross won. None of his singles even made it to the Billboard 100 and he still pushed about the same amount of units than Jeezy. Wait til Diced Pineapples drops and we'll see who the real boss is

      nah ross had 300 singles and a pushed backed album and what does jesus have to do with records sales?

    • Vyce

      You left out the fact that Jeezy's album dropped around xmas, and Jeezy had about 283 singles to try and build a buzz.

  • Fuck Atlanta

    I hate the way he keeps winning.

  • Noneya Bizness

    What's the point of Jeezy being an A&R if he ain't signing NEW INDEPENDENT rappers??? Remember when Jay-Z was head of Def Jam, all he did was use Def Jams' resources to push his own shit haha

  • Burmy

    Congratulations...I hope his first act will be to drop the entire Brick Squad fam. OAN: how many albums did he sign for at Def Jam? (he's released four thus far). Because once his contract expires, THEN he could take his full services to Atlantic...

  • Your Opinion Means Nothing...
