A couple months ago I posted a thread saying how I thought JAY-Z really has not done that much as PRESIDENT of DEF JAM........like albums from the likes of MEMPHIS BLEEK, YOUNG GUNZ, and the signing of FOXY BROWN???? just seemed lame to me.......while dudes like REDMAN and ODB have been sitting on the bench for like 2 years.......

......some people agreed with me some did not


Today I just watched tv and saw JAY-Z has signed two pop singers TINA MARIA and some other no talent chick???? Signed to DEF JAM records, the famous 'rap" label??? Like I dont remember DEF JAM really ever having BRITNEY SPEARS style pop singers????...............I think that this is gay......DEF JAM is a hip hop label!

Are you telling me that JAY-Z cannot go out and sign some dope rapper???......I almost feel that labels dont even want to hear talented rappers, they just want disposable cats that do pop songs.........

I was toked for JAY taking over DEF JAM....but it seems even worse since he took over

its stupid. he signed those no talented bitches because POP sells. he coulve signed 2 MC's witht REAL lyrics instead, while also giving his label a good rep like in the good ol' days. We all know that a REAL RAP can sell just as much as POP crap but he doesnt care. He goes and signs stupid pop bitches and fags. Maybe these major labels really do like pop, even Jay-z. Im glad to see that Kanye West didnt change much since going on MTV. He actually got better. Just look at his work with Common. As for Jay-Z, he's a businessman with brains for making money, but he's an idiot when it comes to recognizing good music... oh and he lost a battle to the GZA and tried to say he won.

Your president of Def Jam, a multi-million a year operation, you need to keep that up yearly so you need to keep with the times, make sure you have the artists that sell and your job is easy as cake. Wu-Tang Clan's market-niche is gone, teens are the biggest market today and Wu can't compete with 50 Cent....thats why Wu will never be mainstream big again.

After saying this, iunno who the fuck he signed, so they could just very well be no talent shlews....

"look at all these off brand niggas, running arround yapping about, they be holding figure's as big as jigga's"


i see this shit, jigga, averaging, 300 million dolla's income a year. through all his busniess's.....

he one rich ass mother fucker.

Edit:

Def Jam... Is no longer a rap lable either..... It's a brand name.

shit load of people buy the Def Jam, games, and fuck knows what else they produce now. that are probably not even into rap music...

Def Jam is an entrepreneurs wet dream. and jigga going to work that bitch, untill he so rich it's unbelievable

On the real, fuck Def Jam. If it wasnt for Redman there be no Def Jam n still he treated like Jay-Z n shit are superior to him. Bullshit. Mef n Ghost should never have crossed over there. I mind on the old meth site, I told mef to stick a right guard sport stick up Def Jams ass.
