New Music: The Outlawz – Warning Shots (Funk Master Flex Diss)

The Outlawz – Warning Shots (Funk Master Flex Diss)

Did you really think they were gonna let that diss slide? Really? I don’t know what was wrong with Flex that night, maybe he was drunk, high, or whatever, but its out there and now he has to deal with the repercussions. What amazes me is that the video of flex dissing ‘Pac has been out for a couple of days now and we have not heard a statement or anything from flex or his camp regarding it. The way things work these days people release retractions almost immediately if something was an accident or mistake. Remember when it was rumored young berg got robbed? the next day he was on youtube to clear it up. Remember when Tyga got jacked? The very next day He came out telling what happened. So its safe to say that flex meant what he said. So that fine that’s how you feel, cool. Now deal with the statement.

To be honest I’m feeling some sort of way about this whole issue, Now i’ve said plenty of times i am a Pac-aholic and i make no apologizes for that, and i am also from originally from California, but if I had said the same thing about biggie, the whole east coast would have jumped down my throat, but it appears that flex can say what he wants and the west gets silent. Did the west coast heart die with ‘Pac?? Because if you check the numbers “Pac was, scratch that, IS the West coast, with all due respect to Snoop, Cube and whoever else. No one held it down like Makaveli. But yet all my people from the left remain silent. WTF????? Are they so scared that flex wont “drop a bomb” on thier record that they stand silent?? There was a time when if you said anything shady, or swimey about the west, ‘Pac was at you, now 15 years after his death a video surfaces with flex saying “fuck Tupac” and no roar is heard from California, nobody riding up to Hot 97 demanding flex’s head, No shock or disgust. All we have is ‘Pac’s lil homies riding for him.

There was a time when all i heard was Thuglife this and Thuglife that, where almost every artist, let alone west coast artist copied or took a part of Tupac’s persona, from the tattoo’s to the saying thug all over your record, to calling a woman a bitch in 1 song then saying keep your head up in the next. There was also a time when a man had to be accountable for his words, if you said something you had to deal with the backlash. Have we(and I’m saying we as in those who rep Tupac)become so passive, that someone can basically spit our face and we do nothing about it? Is this what we have become? ‘Pac would weep for us.

Rest in Peace Thuglord, it appears all the work you did repping California means nothing now, because when you need them to rep you, they stand on the sideline, more concerned about record play than with whats right and wrong.

To my family out west, read this piece and look yourself in the mirror and ask yourself 1 question……………….”R U Still Down ?”

A Tale Of 3 Covers: Jay-z Vs Drake Vs Juvenile

There has been alot of talk in the blogosphere that Juvenile new album “Beast mode” bit off of Drake’s “Thank Me Later”, But no one seems the think that Drake bit the off of Jay-z’s apperance on Village Voice Magazine. As big of a Jay-Z fan Drake is, I have a hard time beliving that he never saw this cover. What do ya’ll think?

WTF: Virginia Governor Declares “Confederate History Month”

Virginia’s Republican Governor, Bob McDonnell has declared that April is Confederate history month, celebrating the many Southern whites who fought to preserve slavery and leave the union.

After the jump read his statement regarding the declaration



This defining chapter in Virginia’s history should not be forgotten, but instead should be studied, understood and remembered by all Virginians, both in the context of the time in which it took place, but also in the context of the time in which we live, and this study and remembrance takes on particular importance as the Commonwealth prepares to welcome the nation and the world to visit Virginia for the Sesquicentennial Anniversary of the Civil War, a four-year period in which the exploration of our history can benefit all.


UPDATE: In my reseach i found that several other states already celebrate “Confederate History Month”

Alabama

Mississippi

Texas (since 1999)

Louisiana

Florida (since 2007)

Georgia (since 2009)

Since I live in Va. I figured I had to comment on this. I know that Va. was at one point the capital of the confederacy, but to have such an hone is like celebrating the birthday of Adolph hitler. This is such an abomination, there should be a national uproar, there should be rioting in the streets, there should be protest, but yet nothing. Where is Jesse, Al, and the rest of the lot? They are all off arguing over violating our first amendment right over sagging pants. Its a sad thing that this story hasn’t even gotten any coverage in the mainstream media. I can tell you one thing, this definitely shows me that my time in Va is coming to an end.
