“You need to find a better approach”- 50 cents body guards.
This is me making first contact with 50′s people….. let me back up a little…
Ahhh, another weekend of slowly killing my liver. Hope the boogie went down for everyone last night…. Drama’s hip-hop review LETS GO!!
So I’m kinda mad I slept on this. This dude K’Naan is actually pretty talented. Think the reason I never checked his shit out is because I’d always see one of his bullshit ass facebook ads and just got mad bout them cause I hate every ad on facebook that isn’t for hot singles or dating or some other bullshit I signed up for then got mad because it wasn’t free and there were not hot beeches on it… but I digress. Check this out, he got the help out from non other than Chubb Rock (Treat em Riiiiight).
Also check out Chubb Rock and Wordsmith’s Old 2 the New. Pretty ill Matrix concept even though it looks like I filmed and edited it (lol @ Chubb Rock slappin Agent Smith lookin boy). Kinda interested in this Bridging the Gap album they got set to drop in June.
If you liked our recap of the Wale show from a couple weeks ago, check out our boy Bender’s adventures at Wale’s Attention Deficit tour in Detroit….. and yes, his 1928 Delta did get him to the Shelter. Too bad he didn’t catch the show at the Majestic Theater, I would have loved to have seen Drake and Big Sean on stage with Wale. Notice how Chi town is all about Jugrnauts, Leaders, MTTM and what not and out in Detroit its just Ice Creams and BBC. The murda mitten needs to step it up.
Onyx is back? Well to tell you the truth, they never left. Since 92 they’ve been doing their thang without so much as a break. They kicked mainstream in the dick when they dropped Slam in 93 (I’m sure you all remember that shit) but that was the peak of their mainstream success. Mainstream has never been their thing though; they started out and will always be an underground group, pretty much the definition of underground. They dropped records in 93, 95, 98, 03 and what I assume to be Black Rock coming out this year. Staying busy with that, doin shows and callin 50 Cent a bitch ass trick. Check out the 1st single from the new album, its no Last Dayz but Sticky does come with that raw on it.
Check out what will soon be my theme music. The Motions by Nickelus F, yeah that dude who sounds a lot like Saigon on all those Drake tracks. Truth is, dude’s the truth, been around forever. Check out Go Time comin out next week. Wake up, eat, make money, eat, go to bed…. repeat.
The latest Mike Posner citing was at the University of
Fuck Dayton. Wish I could get famous and have people sing my songs then show up at their parties and get all the white womens. Other then that I’m excited for Relapse and Detox, need to hurry up and come out. Since I finally got those fucking red rings of death, I’ll be spending all my time listening to music this week. Bout to cue up a bunch of shit; everything from Drake, Nas, Common, M.O.P, Damian Marley, Dave Coresh, Asher Roth, Rick Ross and Jadakiss to Tupac, Tribe Called Quest, Dead Prez, Cypress Hill, Gravediggaz, Biggie, Nickelus F, Rhymefest, Joell Ortiz, De La Soul, Rock City and TiRon. Follow what I’m listening to at Last.fm. Would love to hear from you and see what you’re listening to also.
What up world? Welcome back to Sunday School, Drama’s weekly hip-hop review.
Remember how Suge Knight got his ass kicked like 5 weeks ago? Well homie got revenge it seems. His boys broke into Akon’s boy place and held him up for outstanding depts, and for that whole Suge Knight getting his shit pushed in incident. More ignorant shit, ya’ll know I stay with this.
Em, Fitti and Dre are workin on a video for Em’s next album, don’t know which song yet though. More from this in the future no doubt. Juelz Santana hates computers and the internets and gays. DEFINENTLY check that out and watch the video. Also Chris Brown is sad and Rihanna got some guns…. on her collar.
The homie El Capo told me bout this shit right here. Q-Tip X Kanye West X Consequence = dope freshness. Extremely happy that Q-Tip is doin his thang again; this song has that Vivrant Thing, Breathe and Stop, Find A Way, Don’t Forget Em, Heard Em Say feeling to me. Evokes all these emotions.
Flo Rida is still whack… wait that’s not news. What IS hot is that Slaughterhouse, its got the innanet goin nuts (no Paul Wall). Makes my dick hard for hip-hop again…. (||) no homo. Move On…
“I look at a lot of you cats and laugh, cause I’m the shit man and ya’ll ain’t even passin gas” – Joell Ortiz
“I’m on my grind, Benjamin huntin, was old since I was young call me Benjamin Button” – Joe Budden
“We the super crew, you couldn’t handle this shit if you was standin before us carrying the poop-a-scoop” – Royce Da 5’9”
“I deal with politics, bandanas and hollow tips, half you rappers followed as role models can swallow dick” – Crooked I
Other hot shit, The Kid Daytona’s new video. After I heard him on that DJ Benzi, know he was gonna come with some ill shit… or some Fly Shit…
Expect to hear this at that Code2Ave release party in May. Not sure what we’re releasing yet but that’s just minor details.
Shaq is still the shit. I just saw Lebron and em pre game before the Cavs and Mavs game, so glad Shaq decided to partake in this fuckery… I mean come on, its Shaq. I used to love the NBA

Week 2, Drama’s hip-hop review, lets get it
Ahhhh, this is fiiiiyaaaah. As recently as the last 2 or 3 years and perhaps early into the most recent decade, producers began to realize and exploit the fact that putting 3, 4, 5 big ass names on a record would instantly make it hot. Some fell short…. Some did it big. Others were ridiculous and just institute fuckery which is right up my alley. I stay with this and I ain’t mad at em… except for Khalid, he givin us middle easterns a bad name.
In other news, NORE aka superthug is beastin dudes over the head at fat burger and beefin with Perez Hilton? Why? I donno, but I did learn a new saying “twitter gangsta”. I will not be fuckin with this story, not because Perez is gay but because hes gaaaaaaaaaaaay and I hate hearin or lookin at him. Not that there’s anything wrong with that… No homo
50 Cent has a new video game out. Dude is fightin terror, peep it. I feel safer knowing hes out there fighting for our freedom. No word yet as to if he kills Khalid in the final level.
Some updates from last weeks Drama
Chris Brown got Rihanna a bunch of ish for her b-day to make amends and rumor has it that SHE wants to get back together with the kid. More proof that females love bein treated badly. Some more info on why this popped off in the first place, I know ya’ll have heard that it might have been due to the h bomb but there has also been word that she might be preggers. All I know is that Chris needs to put out more of this and everyone will forget.
Speakin of preggers, Ray J is insane, I mentioned last week that that girl Danger might be pregnant…. dude confirmed that she is. Not sure if it’s his or not yet but I’m sure we’ll know soon. Dude out here claimin he tryin to find love on the show…. we know whats up, if they were gonna bring the fly honies to you, why wouldn’t you partake? That’s just cutting out the middle man.
Not sure if you haven’t heard or seen this yet but listen to it again anyway. Found this over at the Ill-Advised nonCONFORMIST a while back. Huge ups to Lia and Rosco, 2 of the illest fly scholar hipster chicks on the innernets. We at Code2Ave appreciate what you’re doin.
Also, if you’re lookin to find pretty much any remix of Day ‘N’ Night, check this. (check back once they resolve them bandwith issues ya dig?)
If you have anything you would like us to cover in our weekly updates, please hit me up on the twitters. Or catch us at the new Friday night spot, J. Gardellas, where oddly enough, hip-hop lives on the top floor.
(peep last weeks review here)
Drama’s Hip-Hop Breakdown. The boys (not men) at Code 2 bring to you a weekly column from one of the resident heads: Benny “Drama” Lava. Everything from hip hop news, trends, genres, album reviews, artist bios and eventually downloads (once I figure out how to use WordPress).
Big ups to Jewie Louis and the news. I get the majority of my hip-hop news from those fools and I been on Rosenberg for a few years now… pause. Something about Jews and hip-hop just works.
Anyway for the few dense headed suckas still left out there in the world that think that there is no fuckin on reality TV, I present to you For the Love of Ray J or as I like to call it Super Star Part 2 (ask for the video link). Rumor has it that Ray J Banged it out with Danger (tattoo face) and got the bitch pregnant. I would smash too.
Kid Cudi got tasered by Reebok during All Star weekend for wearin Nike’s. Suge Knight stays getting whooopd on now a days as well. How the mighty have fallen….
In other news Chris Brown’s camp put out a whack ass apology and Rihanna is mad bout it. I still contest that old boy was just krumpin and she got in the way. The pertinent questions:
1) Will CB have a career when this is over?
2) Will Rihanna’s forehead ever be the same?
3) Will this end soon so we can get on with our lives?
Jay ain’t havin it son.
Rick Ross and 50 Cent beef is still not registering on whogivesafuck.com, even with numerous diss tracks and family gettin involved. Shits gettin too personal off a bad look. And yeah, people say 50 has a reputation of ending other rapper’s careers, I figure if he wanted to end Ross’s career he would have been had signed him to G-Unit by now… BOOM.. roasted. And I don’t give a damn if he comes after me next, my baby momma can use a shoppin spree too ya dig?
Speakin bout beefin and 50, Cam and Juelz may have made amends so there may be more lightly talented rap commin out soon. I used to maaaaad fuck with the set back in my hustlin days, I will most likely again… hustle… not fuck with the set.
Most importantly Big L rest in peace. Its been a handful of years since he passed. I feel that Big L was to Mase and Cam’ron what Big Pun was to Fat Joe. Kept them in check, kept the shit raw and gully and most importantly didn’t have Lean Back come out. Children of the Corn what up? If he was alive today I don’t know how things would be but it is for damn sure that he was taken too early.
“The good die young, I ain’t eligable for that”
- 50 Cent.. damn, he got that right
I actually fuck with Aunt Jackie though, shot outs Jason Fox and yeah thats young JoJo Simmons in the video
