At times the Philly nigga sounds like he's crying. This is crazy. He's goes into so much one-sided detail and distress about the situation that a lot of people are feeling just sad. Especially because it really feels like he's sad about everything. My thoughts honestly are too much to write here quickly but I just wanna say this. I understand both sides. We don't have to hear Jay talk specifically on this record to know how he feels. Beans didn't paint him as a snake, just maybe as not a real enough nigga that he would take care of his own. How much someone as bright and as done with all the bullshit, and as already home, and as innocent as Jay-Z should take care of Philly niggas? I dunno. My man can't be stopped and I don't think I want him to.
As you must of heard, 2 days ago I had my first record be made available on iTunes ! It's the first time you had to pay something to support the kid. Thank you so much for the all the continued support. I'm never gonna stop giving away music for free. We share ! Peace family.
*Even you've been under a rock the last month or just tuning in, this is my most recent body of work, recorded in a Chinatown loft. I'm planning something pretty cool for November but for now..
At 1:43am last night Drama King played some shit ! Transcribing now. Download Average Cat (CDQ/Dirty) - Beanie Sigel peace to Low "..I'm a grown ass man I don't sit on niggas laps and I ain't looking for no gifts out of Santa Clause's sack, Santa ain't real, let alone is he black, catch you coming down my chimney and the mack'll go bbrrrriiiiaaatttt.." "..raise the hairs on your back, niggas talking 'bout compared to Sig you waaakk.." "..I'm so bad, I'm a smoooth criminal, I'm a thriller holding a snub with a glove that don't glitter.." "..I was the fly on the wall, you know what the fuck I witnessed ??! - I'll say some shit that make B look at you different.. and my gangsta was never on trial.. " "..cause I was front row at The Blueprint 3, I was just trying to see him M C, and reminisce when we was the R O C, but he called on the C O P's not only that but he brought in the F E D's (snitch), so that's telling me F U Sig so F U 2 and F Bleek 3.."

"..the richest man ain't the one with his first dollar dog, it's the one who still got his first friend.. Rocafella for life nigga.."
Me and babygirl were in a Halloween store in Queens when she picked up this blond wig package with someone very familiar on the cover hahahahahhaa.. I immediately hit Mrs. Nicola of Nina Sky - verdict? It's gotta be her hahahha. Somebody's getting sued. Fuckin' hilarious.
Makes me happy to be here. Makes me feel alive. You can make fun of me but you can't take this feeling away. As long as the ground screams under my feet and the clouds texture the sky I'll feel this way forever. Feeling poetic.

"I think after a year with DJ Hero I’m gonna start D.J.-ing parties like Q-tip and all those guys. I already got a whole plan: I’m gonna work on this for a year, then I’m gonna get me a little Serato set, work on that for another six months. Then I’m gonna find out who makes the most. I’m gonna charge double that. I’m gonna do a tour, bar mitzvahs, weddings. I’m gonna have like video ... I’m telling ya’ll, 'cause I don’t want nobody stealing my idea … I’m gonna have, like, video behind me. Dancers. I’m gonna have people pour champagne when I get to a certain song. I’m gonna make a whole show of this thing."
"I actually predicted the Yankees in six with the Angels, so I think I’m like Jigga the Greek. I’m gonna say, Phillies are a bit tougher than the Angels. I’m gonna take Yankees in seven. Dramatic A-Rod walk-off at the end of the game redeeming him for all the time the papers and the media vilified him. Is that specific enough?"
My man Q Beezy ! wrote me and said he watches this freestyle I did 6 months ago to get inspired. My brother, you have no idea how much that inspires me. You wanted an mp3 so here you go homie. Thank you.
This past sunday night Oktober 25th, newyorkisdead.net hosted Oktobership featuring a special performance from young rockstars, The Astor Kings. With Adam Fletcher on Bass Guitar and special guest Francisco "Me" doing back-up vocals, the Kings ran through a few of their big records while we laughed, drank and danced on the steamship Lilac docked at Pier 40. A truly, beautiful night in New York City, this is an www.illrapper.com exclusive.
I usually don't post low quality stuff like this but what's talked about is real interesting so more so of something to watch, check it out for the info spilling. Kiss talks about having a kid that's almost in High School who he lets hear all his stuff before it comes out. I never knew Kiss to be a pops like that. Crazy to think. They also dive in to the 10 year Anniversary LOX album that might be coming out through Puff. Sounds dope. Ill rapper shit.
You say Hov lost it, you say he's not the best to ever do this, you hate him, he's weak, he sold out right? I don't wanna hear it ! My man kills this game. Every time I turn around he's doing something else that's never been done. He takes the term "power move" to a whole different level and all the while remaining cool and never corny. He was my first non-related T.Shirt post on this website for one reason. Jay-Z is a muuhhfuckin' ill rapper. Catch him and Miss Alicia keys performing their new smash New York anthem "Empire State Of Mind" before Game One of the World Series Wednesday, October 28th. Go Yankees. New York all day.
Had to steal that Post Title from the boy YN - true shit.
"the pistol mean business, that shit should have a tie on"
"..I get super hero money, call a nigga super rich, keep it super for a while, lemme get on my super shit, super ill, super sick, dog, I get super Vick, ran into a super woman, turned her to a super bitch,hit her with that super dick, she be cumming super quick, super Millz, Mack, Tyga, Streets, Nelly, super Mick, super Drizzy, Gutta, Chucky, Twist, that's the super clique, now I'm off that super shit, fuck that shit I super quit.."
Remember Black October? You probably don't unless you've been riding with me this past year. It was the first thing I ever put on this blog back when I thought I'd keep it as a T.Shirt only site. What a crazy kid I am. Within 2 weeks I was posting other stuff, artists, music, fashion, news I thought was interesting. Slowly illrapper.com became the behemoth you check now. Slowly I saw the potential here. Slowly but surely. Now 1,000 posts later, we're back in October, Black October, where it all began.
