Mobb Deep vs. Saigon?!

There's an old beef between Tru Life and Mobb Deep... If you guys know Tru Life, him and his crew jack chains from other rappers... It's crazy! So anyway, Saigon is cool with the dude, and Saigon was performing one of his tracks @ SOB's, a club in New York... So Saigon gets snuffed by one of the dudes in the Mobb Deep clique... Here are 2 version of the story on tape.

Papoose - Dropped From Jive!

For those of you have been waiting on Papoose to drop his album, Nacirema (America backwards) Dream, you're gonna have to wait a little bit longer...

Pap & Kay Slay have just announced that he was released from Jive Records. He was originally signed to Jive for 1.5 Million dollars. After about a year, no album has surfaced, as of yet. Now he's having to look for a new label. This is what Kay-Slay had to say on Hot 97 in New York:

We have officially gotten our release from Jive f*ckin records. It was like a f*ckin year of hell... Unfortunately, we almost became victims of A&R hell.

"You cannot put a 60-something-year-old white man on a 20-something-year-old black kid's project from Brooklyn, and think it's gonna pop. And like I said this aint a bashing. It's a reality. But by the grace of everybody's... understanding, we are free. Free at last, free at last. Thank God Almighty, free at last. We are very happy, we're popping champagne. We got our release from Jive Records, and we're just moving on"

Hopefully, he can put out that album ASAP. Have a good weekend.
