What's Beef?

Inspiration - "What's Beef" - Biggie "Beef is when I see you, guaranteed to be in ICU"

What I'm Listening To - "Reasonable Doubt" - Jay Z

Question(s) I Asked Myself Today - Does Cam really want it with Hov?

Everybody's talking about the new CamRon diss joint that's out today where he's going after Jay Z. (I haven't learned how to link music files yet, but you can find it on the web.) If you ask me, dude's in for some trouble. Jigga is the best rapper alive, and this is coming from the world's biggest Nas fan. As much as I love "Ether", Jay killed it with "Takeover". His whole body of work shows how much of a genius he is. I listened to Cam'Ron's joint and it just ain't up to Jigga's level. And in my opinion, bringing Beyonce into the beef is wack. She don't have anything to do with the beef. I can't wait for the response.

The other joint out is the "I'm not a writer" joint. What Jay-Z is doing is not biting. He is making references to other joints, but's that's hip hop. He is showing respect for the classics. That's what hip hop does. Sampling is a major part of the music. It's not like he is using the whole verses. It would be foolish to discount the rest of the song. Listen to a whole verse of any of the songs on that track and it is clear that Jay-Z is not a biter, he's a genius. You can't fault the man for paying homage to the classics. Anyone who is swayed by this track is obviously not a true hip hop fan(atic.)

Enough about the rap game, I got beef my damn self. I know a few of my readers will know who I'm talking about. I tried to turn over a new leaf in '06, but there's this dude at work I can't stand. Have you ever known someone who is so incompetent, that the only way he can get some shine is to try to down somebody else? Well, last year this cat made up some shit about me to try to get me in trouble and only wound up making himself look worse. Needless to say, Casanova is like Teflon, shit don't stick to me. I can do no wrong in the eyes of my bosses, so they told me what he said. I can't say shit to him though b/c I'm not supposed to know it was him. But I know and he knows that I know, so every time I see his punk ass, I just fuck with his head a little. I'm 'bout to lay down a freestyle diss track on him if he don't stay out of my way. Wouldn't it be cool if you could settle real life situations like rappers. I think it would go something like this:

2006 I tried to chill and lay back
But you keep talking shit so here comes the payback
Keep my name out your mouth or I'm a lose it
This is real life shit, it ain't about music
I stays on my j-o, y'all know the grind
This muhfucka musta lost your mind
To step to me grimy, thinking shit's sweet
Although I keep it corporate, don't make me turn street
Cuz you and me are not cut from the same cloth
Yall niggas is soft/don't make me go off
You can run to the boss, but I don't care
You can ask Bone Crusher, nigga 'I ain't scared"
I ain't never been/and y'all niggaz is irrelevant
Slap the shit outcha kid just for the hell of it.
Smile in my face behind my back you talk trash
Mad at me cuz I don't kiss ass
And I still get cash and respect from the masses
Y'all mf need to enroll in some classes
To be like Casanova - a foolish dream
Don't make me introduce you to the two extremes
Can be good as the best or bad as the worst
You need to pay attention to what I say in the verse
This is just a friendly warning to stop the snitchin
And don't ever try to be me, I'm the chef in this kitchen
Mutha Fucka

Yo, I am bugging out. I can't believe I just busted a freestyle on my blog. Don't steal my lyrics, I got the copyright on them wack-ass shits. By the way, the beat in my head when I was writing was Jay-Z's joint "La La La" (the Excuse Me Miss remix), so read it again with that beat for the full effect. Something's wrong with me, I have no sense tonight. Let me be out before I make a bigger fool outta myself.

i'm sorry, but 'takeover' did not spank up on 'ether'

(I) Fuck with your soul like ether
(Will) Teach you the king you know you
(Not) "God's son" across the belly
(Lose) I prove you lost already

come on!

Oh, I didn't mean to say that Takeover was better than Ether. I just meant that as an example of his battling skills. No disrespect meant to Nas. I better start proof reading my posts. Thanks for the correction.

i think jay-z is the better freestyle battle rapper but if nas has time to drop it onto paper, jay-z can forget it.

You right, I just hope Nas will sell some records with Jigga now. I got a co worker about to cry b/c she thinks Nas sold out to sign with Def Jam.

i have to admit i'm not all that happy about nas getting with def jam. i find def jam has turned into a corporate monster, warping hip-hop into this money-making factory full of half-baked performers who don't give a shit about the creative process and telling the truth, in all its ugly and hopeful glory. they'd much rather put forth the most profitable image, regardless of how damaging it ultimately is for the black community, so long as it lines their pockets.

if that's what def jam is, then i say nas has signed his soul off to the devil, unless he can find a way to still be creatively cutting edge without compromising for the sake of the dollar.

Time will tell if Nas can keep his artistry. I hope it will give him some exposure and maybe a hit single so more people will buy his album.
