I Got A J-O-B

sickamore.jpg

Sorry, I’ve been slacking on my blog mackin. Simpin on my update pimpin. But I got a good excuse! I started my first “job” a couple weeks ago. Real job, not a summer youth like in High School or the mixtapes. I’m talking about offices, focus groups, marketing meetings, travel and expenses,

My business card states Director Of A&R at Atlantic Records. I really think Atlantic is dopest place for me to be, especially coming off of T.I.’s success and Lupe’s buzz. Of course I’m working on Saigon’s project, Greatest Story Never Told. And I’m straight going Hollywood with this HBO Entourage Soundtrack.

The main thing now is adjusting to office life. Don’t wear no hard bottoms, just some creative recreations, Y-3′s or dunks. Louie Knapsack where I’m holding all my demos at. I aint gotta act hard ’cause I’m only 21 with a corporate card. A benefit package that’s usually reserved for Microsoft execs. And I don’t mountain climb or play the electric guitar. The GZA would be so proud.

But your not a real 80′s Baby unless your the CEO/President/Boss/HNIC of some small side hustle company. I thank the 70′s Babies of the tunnel generation (Puff, Dame, Irv, etc) for imbedding us with that 40-Acres-And-A-Maybach mentality. That being said, I still run my company I Can Make You Famous Consulting. For those who didn’t know, that’s the artist development firm I run with such clients as Saigon, Tru-Life, Sky Balla, Spot, Jokaman and more.

Plus I’m dropping the second installment of my Street Power 30. That’s the tape where I rank the top new artists without an album out 1 to 30 based on skill and buzz. I’m going to post my explanations of each rank over the course of the week.

Okay, enough shameless promotion on my part. Due to popular demand, I’ll update my blog a little more often. I’m not a blogger I just write a lot. Oh! And I’m taking applications for the 80′s Baby Executive Club. Next time Ill hit y’all with the exact criteria on how to join, member duties (like slap someone who was born in 1974!), code of ethics and our official logo. Make it the 2007 skulls or something. Til next time…

  • born in ’74

    sick: i like your posts but you need to chill with the whole 80′s baby thing. being an 80′s baby doesn’t mean you were actually born in the 80′s (i.e. the phrase is not to be taken literally).

    the only reason people even mention the 80′s (at least in hip-hop) is primarily because of the things that were going on in the streets at that time. therefore, if you were born in 1980 or later you were much too young to have any real-life experience with that.

    so in actuality, if you were born at any time in the 80′s you are really a 90′s baby because that is when you came of age. but no one really reminisces about the 90′s in hip-hop because a) it wasn’t that long ago, and b) the 90′s was, for the most part, a lame decade.

    why do you think Jay would call himself an 80′s baby when he was really born at the tail end of ’69? (hint: he wasn’t trying to pull the wool over our eyes.) the point he’s making is that by the end of the 80′s he was in his late teens and, presumably, doing things in the street that no one born in 80 or later had any part in. so for all you twenty-somethings out there, enjoy your youth but find another identity. you may have been literally born in the 80′s, but you are not 80′s babies in any way that holds real meaning. sorry…

    anyway, just thought i’d attempt to correct you on your misappropriation of this phrase. other than that keep up the good work. it’s nice to see a cat your age doing his thing.

    p.s. ain’t nann nigga born in the 80′s slapping me…well, maybe if he’s strapped and i’m not…but other than that, FUGGEDABOUTIT!!

    also, to prove i’m not the only one who knows the true definition of an 80′s baby, please see this post:

    I am on my job. I hate for fun and i get paid for it.

  • Trill4Real

    Camron the whole Dipset “movement” is bullshit. Just b/c he comes out with halfass mixtapes every month doesnt mean he has a movement.

    Camron is just some what smart. He made a Couple Of MIl and invested in shit like recording equipment, so he could press and distribute his bullshit.
    ——thats it, thats all it is

    His crew will never sell beyound gold if that.
    JR Writer wont go gold neither will Hel Rell.

    Juelz might make it for a while (barely though) only b/c he is on Def Jam so he will have a record deal for a couple of years.

    —–I beat Nas go after Dipset, or at least Camron, and when he does it will be another ETHER…..

  • 50 Cent

    Ether wasn’t even a good dis, Jay-Z clearly one the battle. Takeover=classic dis towards Mobb Deep and Nas.

    Super Ugly came out 24 hours after Ether. Ether didn’t even speak on facts.
