    the Nas buying a 2 million dollar beat from the neptunes is A CONFIRMED RUMOR. NOT TRUE.

    That's fucking ridiculous that a human would pay that much money for another humans music. Just learn how to use the fucking machine and make your own, damn. But then again, its all about the name.

    in the DMX changing his name interview DMx said storch usually charges 80k for a beat, but storch gave him one for free.

    if someone can make a beat and someone agrees to pay more than a years salary for it why the hell would they complain?
    The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse. (Romans 1:18-20)

    defiantly.


    you walk down the street wearing gucci people look and say damn, you walk down the street wearing buggle boy and lets just say you dont get the same reaction.

    same is comparible with a beat from dre, and one from rico down the street.
    The earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena. Think of the rivers of blood spilled by all those generals and emperors so that in glory and in triumph they could become the momentary masters of a fraction of a dot.

    People are too stupid to effectively conspire to do anything, but not too stupid to come up with conspiracy theories.
