First off who the hell is this guy?? 2nd when I heard this song I damn there slipped into depression. I mean all producers go through it, samples are free for the world to discover. I had the sample and made a beat out of what Just Blaze used for "Exhibit C" for like 3 + yrs. It happens. My girl was in the other room and I heard the sample and was confused..."did I send her the beat?" "did I post it somewhere and forget?" Nawh son! Enter J.R. Rotem. This dude has baffled me for like 3 years now. When he first came out his Hip-Hop beats were hardly memorable, than he did a lot of pop stuff for Brittney Spears. Next thing you know he comes hard (pause) with the Rick Ross track "The Boss" or whatever its called. Doing joints for Freeway and 50 Cent ( I like that song regardless of how much ppl hate it) ...never mind that Sean Kingston come up crap. My problem with the song is that it's stupid. He cheated on a chick while he was broke and promised her that when he gets famous he won't ever do it again and they will be living the f'ing high life....Ehhh??? C'mon son, Fuck outta here with that Bullshit.
Hoping I was gonna tell you what the sample was or post my version...get outta here!

1. Why is it that we may receive several feet of Snow but only several inches of Rain? Seeing as how snow is just rain but a different temperature, it seems that snow falls more steadily and abundantly. Granted, snow is packed on top of itself, but it seems like 2 feet of snow would melt down to maybe at least 5 inches of water.
2. The saying goes "Heat Rises," so why is it that the higher you go in the atmosphere the colder it gets?
Snow isn't just rain at a different temperature, snow is crystals that form in subfreezing temperatures and each one is different . The moisture available, the air temperature, the wind, all make flakes different. One inch of rain will typically yield about ten inches of snow through this natural unique process.They are two very different things. The heat rises is true, but as one goes higher in the atmosphere the air gets thinner and less capable of holding heat, thus the temperature falls approximately 3 degrees for each 1000 feet in elevation. On a day when it's a hot 90 degrees out , at 30,000 feet where big thunderstorms are typically located, it's a subfreezing zero degrees!! Hence hail can fall from summer storms on a hot day!! Hope that helps..Thanks for watching..Bob Turk
WHATTTTTTTT!!!! Bob dropping jewels!
1 inch of rain = 10 inches of snow
-3 degrees for every 1000 ft. in the air
Not only were my questions answered the same day, but they were very informative as well. Let's see if the other stations catch up.

FUBU you guys are killin me. Please stop using rappers that I like to promote your brand that died out over a decade ago. And rappers that I like please stop being in these ads...if thats what you want to call these. Just like Coogi, the original owner's probably don't even own FUBU anymore and sold the company long ago.

Our problem with why Baltimore artists haven't really made an impact in the Mainstream is a deep issue. And I say "Our Problem" b/c it truly is an internal issue. Other cities support systems to each other are on a scale to which we have yet to achieve. We have a larger playing and larger support for "Club Music" then the much larger Hip-Hop music genre in general. Its almost as if Hip-Hop plays 2nd fiddle here while Club Music is placed on the front burner. I have been trying to understand this since I was 16. While DJ's from other bigger cities where Hip-Hop is more prevalent (e.i. New York, Miami, and Houston) seem to expand their name and wealth it seems like DJ's from Baltimore only care about being local celebrities.... if that is what you want to call them. With the exception of a few DJ's such as Jabril, Radio, and DNA the DJ's actually being an outlet or showcasing Baltimore Hip-Hop are few and far between. As annoying as DJ Khaled is he put on for Miami...he plays hot records from Miami and has been doing that for years now he is President of Def Jam South. That's a goal, a major achievement. Fact is we don't have a Funk Flex, we don't have a DJ Clue, we don't have a DJ Screw...we don't have anybody here breaking records.
Also the outlet for which local music is heard and giving exposure is little to none. Recently Allbmorehiphop.com arose with a great site for local acts to get their music out and more accessible. Not only does it showcase local talent but it is also a very well put together site that could and I'm sure does attract outside visitors. And I swear Al Shipley of Government Names is the only person that seriously writes about and posts local Hip-Hop. There are other viable Hip-Hop outlets here such as 88.9 Strictly Hip-Hop the long running Morgan State University radio show and shows like Spitts Mcman Radio were Host Shaka Pitts give people a chance to submit music and allow listeners on the phones and in the chat room the task of voting "1" or "2" (1 being pass 2 being fail) on the playing song in question. But no matter how much underground support Baltimore Hip-Hop may have, if it isn't being covered majorly by larger entities and embraced it's going to be in 2nd place for a much longer time.

This movie displays four sides of a fucked up coin. It's dark, desperate, and daring. It shows people confronting their vices not worried about the consequences. And when people feel they have nothing to lose they either become worthless or very dangerous. P.S. if you see a guy dressed in Army fatigues, a Gucci belt, and an open shirt...he is a cop. Don Cheadle's wardrobe was the worst.
