Speaking of Primo, I heard Nas's next album is going to be solely produced by Primo. Streets Disciple wasnt doing it for me, no replay value.

Damn, even UPN 9 news is doing a special tonight on the exploitation of women in Hip-Hop. Even whitey looks at these videos like WTF  ??? What do others think. Are these soft-porn videos purely "entertainment" or are they masking the fact that most of these so-called "artists" lack any real lyrical skills and talent?

THE MAKING OF PUBLIC ENEMY'S
IT TAKES A NATION OF MILLIONS TO HOLD US BACK

user posted image

An in-depth discussion event on the making of hip-hop's greatest album

FEBRUARY 25 & 26 2005

In 1988, Def Jam recording artists Public Enemy released their second
album "It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back" to commercial
and critical acclaim. Driven by controversial anthems like "Bring The
Noise" and "Don't Believe The Hype", "Nation" boldly inaugurated the
era of political hip-hop, transforming MCs Chuck D and Flavor Flav
into musical superstars. With confrontational, hard-hitting lyrics and
aggressive, visionary sound, "Nation" is widely commemorated as the
greatest hip-hop album of all time.

On February 25 and 26, The Clive Davis Department of Recorded Music at
NYU will assemble original PE band members, producers and engineers
with members of the original Def Jam executive team and the nation's
leading journalists for a series of panel discussions on the making of
"It Takes a Nation of Millions". If you're nostalgic for political
music or old school hip-hop - or if you just want a behind-the-scenes
glimpse at how great records are produced - don't miss this
once-in-a-lifetime event.

i saw this and thought it was funny in a sad kind of way. so much for nelly's crossover into country music. i guess he forgot some of them were racist.

Nelly outrages White supremacists. A December 2004 MTV.com article in which Nelly refers to collaborator, Country singer Tim McGraw's wife as a "bad beeyatch" has angered White supremacists. More and more whiterevolution.com members are fuming over Nelly's comment and outraged that McGraw laughed it off and later said he respected the St. Lunatic. In several posts on the site's forum, members proceed to share their disgust for McGraw and call him a "wigger" and a "ni99a lover". Still, McGraw doesn't get half the tongue lashing Nelly receives. The site's members refer to Pimp Juice as "the ni99a" and call him "subhuman" several times. In one particular post, member Vere states, "I saw the grotesque and disgusting video on the country music channel of McGraw and the subhuman groid pretending to be equally human and having the same emotional needs and responses, etc. But I saw it just once and had difficulty at that time focusing on the words of the ni99a, being so disconcerted and angered just watching these two completely different species propagandizing sameness."

That type of ignorance boggles my mind...It's sad that there are still dumb ass people who have nothing better to do then sit around hating on somebody that they are clearly jealous of.  Hating people u don't know takes too much energy.  >:(
