Seems like rap artists are trying to get the streets ending 2012. I’ve heard a few things hear and there. Impressed with some but wasn’t quite impressed with others. For example, the Ludacris ft. Pusha T Tell Me What They Mad For joint. It goes hard. I ride with that. But I wish Pusha chill out with the YMCMB disses though and simply stick with being a dope MC.
Check out Ludacris ft. Pusha T ‘Tell Me What They Mad For’ below.
And there’s Philly rappers Cassidy and MMG’s Meek Mill going at it. Guess they’re trying to prove who’s the king of Philly. Either way, they need to let that mess go and stick to making money and music. The beat to Meek Mill’s joint goes hard, but he couldn’t came harder with the punches though. He’d probably do better with a one to one accapella show down than how he did on his diss joint.
Check out Repo by Meek Mill below.

The LOX is the truth man. Styles P is a BEAST! But you know, most BEASTS don’t sell in today’s industry. However, with his new joint, ‘Pop Out’, it still proves that the homie is one of the dopest in this hip hop game to do it.
Check out the video for Styles P ‘Pop Out’ below.
What was Bizzy Bone on in this video, because he was KILLIN this freestyle. If broken down into verses, it could have been a two or three verse full song. Chillin with Choke No Joke in a hotel room, Bizzy 1/5 of the Cleveland Ohio rap superstar group, Bone Thugs -N-Harmony, with a blunt in hand gives a complex freestyle about thuggin, his son, Bryan Jr. and other things.
Check out Bizzy’s freestyle below.
SICK SICK SICK. These boyz are SICK. Royce da 5’9, Joe Budden, Crooked I and Joel Ortiz are perhaps four of most slept on lyricists in today’s era of hip hop mic. With DJ Premier on the 1s and 2s, for BET’s ”The Backroom”, them Slaughterhouse boyz go HAM!
Check out BET’s “The Backroom”, ft. Slaughterhouse.
Tyler is a talented brother and I do understand his I don’t give a
you know what image. However, people with that I don’t give a you know what mentality needs to start giving a you know what sometimes; especially in terms of whom they go after and not go after. But then again, Tyler does have a point.
“I don’t know if she’s gay or not,” Tyler said referring to Lyte. “It was a joke. But if she took offense, so be it — I’m not gonna apologize, but I didn’t mean for her feelings to get hurt. Usually people in that position, you’d think they would laugh it off and go on with their day. But I guess she caught feelings. I didn’t mean to do that, but whatever.” (Drama Like The DJ)
Yet then again, I’m also feel what the queen MC Lyte is saying as well.
“Well, the point is just ’cause words rhyme or sound alike doesn’t mean I need to be your stomping ground. So I do have to take it personally, unfortunately whether he meant it personally or not. I’m sure there was a more tactful way, if in fact skilled, you can deliver a rhyme on your own account and not involve me in the shenanigans.” (HHDX)
While brief with the reference, Tyler’s diss appears on the new OF Tape Vol. 2. project.
“See these girls talkin’ all that sh*t (What?)/I’m just tryna see some t*ts (What?)/,” Tyler raps, “Let’s get it poppin’ like, MC Lyte, around some dykes/I’m, out this b*tch like hocus pocus/And me and Lucas got a couple of pickles” (“Rella”)
Check out Odd’s Future interview below with DJ Drama and hear what he had to say about the MC Lyte diss.
The long awaited G.O.O.D. Music compilation album is coming soon which features new joints from artist on the G.O.O.D. Music label such as Pusha T, Kid Cudi, Cyhi da Prynce, Mr. Hudson, John Legend, Common and Mr. Kanye West himself. To warm up fans for the highly anticipated album, another G.O.O.D. Music artist has just dropped the BOMB video. Makes you want to dance like right now.
Take a look at D’Banj’s ‘Oliver Twist’ video below and check to see what artists appear throughout the video.
Outkast very own Andre 3000 has made a return: currently involved in a Gillette Fusion electric razors campaign
Yeah man. It’s always good to see Andre 3000 on the scene being that he doesn’t do much interviews and does every now and then pop-ups on remixes of artists songs. Though it doesn’t appear that the half of Outkast member is crafting new ideas and music for a future Outkast alongside his partner in rhyme Big Boi aka Sir Lucious Left Foot, he is currently involved in a Gillette Fusion electric razors campaign. And while working on a commercial for the popular razor brand, he took time out to give a short interview about the meaning behind style as well as deciding to let his hair grow out.
Take view of the Andre 3000 interview and Gillete Fusion electric razor commercial featuring the rapper/actor alongside Adrien Brody & Gael García Bernal.
At one point in the 21st century, like Cash Money Billionaires/Young Money Records, the Ruff Ryders (DMX, Swizz Beats, Drag – On, Eve, The L.O.X., Murda – Mook) headed by the label owners and brothers, Darrin “Dee” Dean and Joaquin “Waah” Dean were one of the big ups in the music industry and hip hop. And now, GUESS WHO’S BACK? According to Joaquin Dean, who’s backing up the hype from DMX, there is talk about a possible Ruff Ryders reunion.
“Everybody’s on deck. It’s just that we’re making sure all of the schedules are intact,” RR co-CEO Joaquin “Waah” Dean told MTV News. Dates are still being finalized, but Dean confirmed that he expects the tour to start between March and April. The plan is for the crew to begin their run overseas and then come over to the U.S. “We gonna take it nice and slow. We ain’t gonna do like how we used to do, 30 or 40 cities; we not gonna go that far just yet,” he said. “We gonna take it slow. Do a nice little five to 10 joints overseas and then some dates on this side just to build the momentum and have some fun with it.” (MTV)
Yesterday, DMX broke the news of a Ruff Ryders reunion tour coming together.
It’s official … DMX and his legendary rap crew Ruff Ryders are getting back together — in fact, X tells TMZ, a blowout reunion tour is already in the works. Ruff Ryders first lady Eve told us this weekend to expect a massive comeback — but X says the RR reunion is already underway … with CEO Waah Dean currently booking several venues across the country. The tour is supposed to kick off in a few months — and X tells us, the entire crew’s already on board, including Swizz Beats, Drag-On, and Murda-Mook. According to DMX, Eve and The L.O.X. haven’t signed on yet — but that’s just because he hasn’t gotten in touch with them yet. X insists, that will change very soon. X tells us, “We are all family and we’re going to come back stronger than when we left … It’s going to take the nation by storm.” (TMZ)
There has been so many supposed to be reunions in hip hop than have never came into fruition. Hell, I’m still waiting on Dr. Dre to drop that ‘Detox’ album but we’ll see.
Check out this classic throwback from the Ruff Ryders crew.
WHOAAAAAAAAA. It’s going done. Drake dissed Common, Common dissed back. But what do you say about Common’s flow? Did he get down on Drake?
Check out Common’s remix of ‘Stay Schemin’, originally by Rick Ross ft. Drake & French Montana. The original is here for ya’ll too.
Well danggggggg. He went WFF on son. Dude isn’t a real eMcee. Within the context of a freestyle battle, anything goes as far as what your opponent might verbally throw at you. Sure, it’ll make you want to throw some blows; however, that’s what the microphone is for. If you can take the heat in a battle, then almost nothing in the world could phase you. Guess everybody isn’t ready for that.
Check out the battle and the PUNCH.
This is the hardest remix I’ve heard of this song. Makes me like it even better.
Check out I’m A Boss remix by Tha Dogg Pound (Daz & Kurupt) below.
Seems like things are heating up over Common’s controversial ‘Sweet’ joint, to which he seems to be taking shots at several emCEEs, particularly Drake. Yet over several interviews, such as Sway In The Morning and 106 & Park, the Chicago bred hip hop rapper says he’s not going in at the Toronto Canada Young Money artist. Yet in one interview, he did say that the lyrics in Sweet implies to whichever rapper feels he is talking about them. DANG!
At a concert in Los Angeles, before exiting off stage, Drizzy spreaded love to the crowd before saying “just because he sings, he ain’t no b****.” Was that a shot to Common, or was that a shot at Ludacris, whom seem to had taken shots at both Drake and Big Sean on his Bada Boom joint? If it’s about Common indeed, just know that though Common does conscious hip hop, he ain’t no b**** either. Remember, he went in on Ice Cube (N.W.A., Westside Connection) on The B**** In You. In all seriousness, not many rappers don’t want to go in on Common, especially if they don’t want their egos to be crushed. Cube is a beast, but he felt it. But lets hope that’s not any battles to occur between the Young Money and Good M.U.S.I.C. affiliated artists. Especially for Common being on his grown man. Yet sometimes, uncle gotta teach their nephews the lesson of why not to put their hand on the stove.
Common – The B**** in You (Ice Cube diss)
CLASSIC CLASSIC CLASSIC. I’m going straight to the pen and paper for this one. Hi-Tek, is a fool for this one.
R.I.P. J. Dilla February 7, 1974 – February 10, 2006
It has been reported that over the weekend, rap pioneer Erick Sermon aka “The Green Eyed Bandit” of the hip hop group of Brentwood, NY had a heart attack over the weekend. It was just last week when the hip hop community lost another legend, Heavy D, which was a great surprise. Though Erick Sermon is doing ok and recovering, it still saddens our heart to hear that another one of our legends is suffering.
In the light of the situation, this will be Erick Sermon day here at Martacard.com, as I bring to you CLASSIC EPMD and Erick Sermon tracks.
Shouts out to Erick Sermon. We, the MartaCard Team send you our blessings. EPMD and New York, we ride with ya.
Atlanta producer Shawty Redd can finally go back to focusing solely on music-making as reports now claim he has been found not guilty on 2010 murder charges.
According to Shawty’s legal team, he won his legal case in court this week.
Rap producer Shawty Redd can now put his legal troubles behind him. MTV News learned exclusively from Redd’s attorney Ashutosh Joshi on Thursday (November 3) that the Atlanta hitmaker has been found not guilty of murder, as well as lesser charges he was hit with after the fatal 2010 New Year’s Day shooting of Damon Martin.
The bench trial, which began Monday, was decided by a judge without a jury and concluded Wednesday. On Thursday, Judge Wade Crumbly cleared the “Who Dat” producer (real name: Demetrius Lee Stewart) on all charges relating to Martin’s death. “The defense [in the trial] was clearly self-defense,” Joshi told MTV News. “We argued that Redd’s life was threatened both verbally and physically, and this occurred in his home and that he shot this gentleman as a result of that.” (MTV)
Congratulations Shawty Redd. We need a ‘Who Dat’ pt. 2. That ish goes H.A.M.
Many might argue, but Busta Rhymes is probably one of the G.O.A.T.s (Greatest of All Times) when it comes to remixing an original track. Though putting his spin on Jay Z & Kanye’s “*N* In Paris” joint, lifted from the duo’s recently released Watch The Throne album, if this was the original to the hit song, Busta’s verse would serve the lightening intro that perhaps would have the song on repeat several times.
Chect out Busta Rhymes, Jay Z & Kanye West *N* In Paris remix below.
WOW. This chick is on one. However, that’s nothing new. Who is her latest target? None other than the Queen of Music (Beyonce) and her husband aka the proclaimed King of Hip Hop (Jay Z/Roc Nation).
After claiming Beyonce believes a new “Party” remix record will outperform her own early 2000′s “My Neck, My Back” anthem, Khia went on a tirade against the singer and husband/rapper Jay-Z.
“@beyonce has been smoking rocks if she thinks her J. Cole remix flop “Party” will be as big as My Neck My Back.,” she tweeted October 25th.
Check out this low blow comment:
“Goodmorning xox, death threats from @jayz What is he going to do stab me, because I like solange better then @beyonce!” Relating to an incident back in 1999 when the Jigga Man stabbed Lance Rivera for bootlegging his music.
“Don’t hate because I like Matthew better the Tina. I don’t rock bedazzled jeans shirts & jackets @beyonce”
“@beyonce I know you watched my VLOG and ran with my advice youtube.com/watch?v=onkUmf…”
“Now how you going to hate on b*tch who got swagger jacked? Just know this I have SOMETHING real cute for Matthews daughter! #GETMONEYB*TCH (Khia’s Twitter)
See Khia’s My Neck, My Back video below and listen to Beyonce’s Party remix featuring Roc Nation artist, Jay Z and be the judge regarding which is hotter.
No this is not a diss to those whom are in a gang, let alone the Bloods since the title of this article is ‘Piru this Piru that’. Yet it comes a time when certain words, slangs, or what have you take away from the content of an artist’s song or verse. Example, take a record that seems to have no profanity on it. Then all of a certain, the artist says ‘sh@%’. Now before you remember any other line from that song, ‘sh@%’ is what’s going to stand out. This leads me to Lil Wayne’s verse on ‘Strange Clouds’, which is a joint lifted from Atlanta, GA rapper B.O.B. (Grand Hustle) upcoming sophomore studio album. I was riding with Weezy for a minute, yet was thrown off when he stated yelling out ‘PIRU, GANGSTAS, OUTLAWZ’..
Am I dissing Weezy or the bloods? No. This is about music and the power that it has to keep, lose, or shift your listeners attention. There are plenty great artist that either throw up their set or claim what they are banging in their songs (Snoop Dogg, Daz, Kurupt, Game) to name a few. Yet with seasoned artist like Snoop, Daz & Kurupt (Tha Dogg Pound), they understand the elements of musical format. Therefore when they claim Tha Dogg Pound, 20 Crip, etc., it doesn’t throw off their audience or listeners. In actually, for a hot second, it makes you feel like you’re crippin. That’s the power that music has.
That seems to be the question as on his song Don’t F With Me, T makes a reference to rappers working on their sophomore album.
“Rappers on their sophomores, actin’ like they boss lords/ Fame such a funny thing for sure, when n*ggas start believing all them encores/ I’m just the one to send you off, bonjour/ See yourself as I pull up in that mirror tint/ Skins vs. blouses, you mirror Prince, ‘Chappelle’s Show,’ all of you Neal Brennans, sketch comedy, who is for real penning?” (“Don’t F*ck With Me”)
But Drizzy isn’t the only rapper working on their sophomore joint, and besides, those two never seem to have had any beef anyway despite the Lil Wayne (Young Money Entertainment) Jay Z (Roc Nation….Kanye West affiliated) fuel.
Despite the alleged disses, Pusha ends the track promising there are no direct shots at the song’s conclussion.
So…here’s a track that should incite some interesting discussions within the hip-hop community. Unless I’m reading wayyy too into it, there appear to be some shots fired at Drake on Pusha T’s new freestyle track, “Don’t Fuck Wit Me,” which uses the instrumental from Drizzy’s “Dreams Money Can Buy.” Now, I realize that Pusha proceeds to say “no shots” at the end of the track, but he also laughs maniacally and says “but nothing goes unseen.” (Prefix Mag)
