  • Chuck D Speaks about 50

    "Sitting here in the Pittsburgh Airport, going thru post 911 security checks, I can't help but wonder how Interscope Records president, Jimmy Iodine sleeps at night. With the latest 50 Cent Get Rich Or Die Tryin' phenomenon sweeping the nation, again I'm amazed at the selling power of black death and the masters who pimp it. There's a lot of blood in Jimmy Iodine's bank, just as Bryan Turnip, formerly of California Raisin, launched gangsta turned Prioritize Records way back in the 90's, courtesy of the west coast. I actually dug 50 Cent's original take on 'fake gangstas' and the idea of bringing some cats down to the reality of the harshness of the 'real streets' instead of studio imagery. As I dug N.W.A.'s early rebellious take on how a brother couldn't get ahead in society. But in the case of the swirl around 50 Cent, I can't even say it's entirely his fault, that his take on the road to rap is along the Biggie Ready To Die steez".

            some of what chuck d is saying isn't intelligible, but for the most part he is saying that Jimmy Iovine is capatilizing on 50 Cent's music which is basically about crime...in other words, jimmy iovine is is the person behind 50 cent's glorification of violence...he's saying that jimmy iovine is promoting music that shows Blacks in a negative light...so, no, chuck isn't retarded; he speaks the truth...of course, you can say that most mainstream rappers are talking about the same thing, but 50 Cent is the biggest one out right now, not to mention that his album was repetitive for the most part (guns, drugs, etc.)...of course jimmy iovine is behind this, just like he was behind eminem (eminem has said that jimmy iovine was the reason why he has released singles such, "the real slim shady," "without me," etc.)...iovine is a smart businessman, but obviously doesn't care about how people will react to it rather he cares about how much money he can generate from it...

                Chuck D makes some realy valid statements. You have to know where he comes from to really appreciate what he's saying. Considering he along with KRS-One helped to usher in conciousness into the rap woirld, one could see why he has a problem with 50 Cent. He may be entertaining, but you can't deny the fact that he is glamorizing the pitfalls of lower-class black society - drugs and murder. The fact that people can't understand D's statement really says a whole lot about some people on this board...

                  The cats saying Chuck is "retarded" couldn't recite any one verse from any PE song. So what exactly are they judging the man based on? What do the youth of today know about the old school? Wu-Tang and Biggie are NOT old school, young'uns.....

                  As for Chuck's points, they are pretty clear to an able reader. I know literacy skills are pretty minimal for the youth right now, but really, was it hard to understand what he said? I think GorillaUnit summed it up pretty well. Read his paraphrase if Chuck's talk is too complex for you.......

                  A parting thought: The two most revered rappers are dead from beef that used rap as a vehicle. 50 is not expected to live to a ripe old age, and almost certainly his death will involve rap as a vehicle. He will likely join the ranks of Big and Pac as one of the "realest" (if not one of the lyrically complex) rappers ever to spit. People will crowd around to tell how gangsta he really was. Why is "real" equated with "gangsta" in so many people's mind? And why must your life be threatened by rap to get into the public opinion rap hall of fame?

                  Death sells. Black death sells better.

                  Peace

                      Again, Chuck just stated his opinion about 50. He didn't attack 50 or anything like that, he just doesn't totally agree with everything 50 says in his music. And he thinks that Jimmy I. of Interscope is capitalizing off of it, and Chuck D also said that he thinks that Jimmy is capitalizing off of 50 because he's the rapper that has been shot nine times. Its actually alot longer than this he also says he wants 50 to keep making music for a long time and that he would like to hear 50 keep making more songs about Birthdays instead of the things he raps about often(guns,etc..). He also speaks about Jay-Z.
