Billy Danze (M.O.P.) presents: D Dub "Grown Man B.I."

"RUN" (Raps United Nation) is the brainchild of M.O.P.’s Billy Danze who throughout the course of his illustrious career and years of extensive international touring could not help but notice and acknowledge how many talented artists he met during his travels who simply lacked a platform to be heard. Who better then a fellow artist to spearhead the charge and give them that platform, as Billy explains “As an artist I understand the frustration. There are so many artists out there that possess the talent of being able to produce and record good music. They are determined; they have the drive and dedication, but feel as if no one notices. I’ve seen and heard what’s out there from an artistic level. These artists need to be heard and have a united voice. I am very passionate about giving them that opportunity and will do anything in my power to help those that really want to win.”

out of the joints i heard, this was definitely the tightest. and you know i was sold when he was talkin abput his daughter. you know thats my soft spot. but this is nice thing that Billy Danze is doin. i look forward to hearing more.

I think y'all need these over on the east side. If I was there, I would set up shop next to the umbrella/hat/scarf merchants and cake up. Especially by Grand Central, Times Sq Subway, and Macy's in NYC.

Enjoy The Nostalgia

After reading this article and remembering that I had this bookmarked, I couldn't help but reminisce over lacing up the leather Bally boots and the fresh smell of leather from an Aberdeen bomber while looking for my black YSL frames for a night out of bagging chicks on 42nd St in Manhattan. Good times.

RIP Bobby Robinson. Enjoy the beats...

We Would Lose A Rap Olympics

I agree with Chuck D . I don't think we would be in the top 3, perhaps just make the top 5.

I know people are going to start naming the legendary rappers and say I'm bugging, but I would reply with you're bugging. First the masses want the old heads to give it up and fade to black, NOW you want them to represent the art when bragging rights are on the line? NOW you want the lyrical rappers to step up (a la Slaughterhouse). Sorry Charlie, Jay, Nas, Kanye, Jada, Styles and them ain't going. J Cole, Drake, Vado, Nicki, Diggy & CyHi ain't going either. They will get the bug in their ear that this may not be a good look for them. Here's my roster representing the US:

Wiz Khalifa, Currensy, Yo Gotti, Jay Rock, Tyga, Smoke DZA, KRIT, Red Cafe, XV, Pill

These are the new cats, a decent lineup. What will they have to do? Perform the best Hip Hop on the planet. No battle rap, or club lip syncing. Move the world crowd with their Hip Hop. Now of course US rappers headline around the globe, but the US fans have no idea of these countries' local talent. The Asians have been studying US Hip Hop for years. As have the UK, Russia, Australia, and many more countries. Can anyone of you name one of these countries' favorite local rappers to even provide film or scouting? Reassess your thoughts if you don't think a lot of these foreign rappers can't speak English. Notice how much doubt is starting to brew with that starting 10 I put up.

Wiz & Currensy are pretty much the same type of rap. KRIT has his lane, XV has his. The other 6 are pretty much similar. What team has 6 shooting guards, 2 small forwards and 2 point guards and still thinks it can win a b-ball championship?

Who would be the coach? Ross? Snoop? 50? Jay-Z & Puff have already used Euro sounds on their last albums, a sound none of the above rappers have embraced, yet in the same breath people love Tim Duncan's game, and he's sh^t in the international style of basketball. Whomever would be coach would have to get more Mickey Factz' & Kid Cudi's, a rarity in our US rap format, to even be competitive.

We would lose so badly in a Rap Olympics, cats would probably go US Hockey team on the hotel room. And maybe that's what we need to actually see how this rap music thing has truly affected the planet, and step our music artistry up a couple of notches.

If I had Sean "Puffy" Combs money I would have been had this annual event on VH1...
