Clipse vs. Foxy Brown: Jackin’ For Beats

For eager Clipse fans such as myself, the album Hell Hath No Fury once seemed like a desert mirage. But now it looks like things are finally to becoming a reality. The single “Mr. Me Too” has been making its presence felt since its release. If you turn on your television to a music network right now you may even see the eye-catching video for the track. The follow-up single “Wamp Wamp (What It Do)” featuring Star Trak labelmate Slim Thug is said to be a sure-shot hit. We just may never hear it. Ah c’mon now, you know this wouldn’t be a real Clipse story without an extra dash of drama.

This is where things start to get very interesting. A while back, Pharrell sold the same instrumental that’s featured on the song to Foxy Brown. But after announcing that she had been deaf for months, Skateboard P figured that she would never use the track. My sources at Def Jam (there must be a lot of salty ex-employees after last week’s layoffs) claim that Jay-Z even had a conversation with Pharrell where he said Fox Boog wouldn’t be using it. So, P decided to let Clipse murder the beat. And you know they did.

However, after a successful medical intervention, the ball is rolling again for the production of Foxy’s new album. And Jay wants that song! Word is that El Presidente Carter got his corporate thug on properly when his lawyers sent Jive Records a letter. They’re even allegedly trying to get T.I. and Rick Ross to appear on Foxy’s version of the track. Pharrell doesn’t want to step on Hova’s toes so it’s rumored that he is refusing to clear Slim Thug’s appearance on the song, fucking Clipse over in the process. Now what kind of fuck shit is that?

One would easily assume that Pharrell would ride for his niggas. And with Slim Thug (whose album is also on the way) spitting the hook, the choice seems obvious for a man who is supposedly Star Trak for life. Whatever nigga. My Def Jam sources also tell me that Pharrell is trying to give Hov everything from free beats to cash to let “Wamp Wamp” go. After four years of drama and now this, I’m willing to bet that the relationship between Pharrell and Clipse is more strained than my Granny’s colon.

    I’ve never liked Pharrell. I hope someone kidnaps him & forces him to listen to the musical (b-a-n-a-n-a-s) monstrosities he’s unleashed upon the world, while simultaneously hitting him in the face with copies of “Already Platinum”.

    Free The Clipse!

  • http://rockthedub.blogspot.com khal

    WOW! Fuck Pharrell too then. I can’t believe he wouldn’t ride for his boys!

  • gluvnast

    lets just hope it’s only a rumor. if not…both pharrell and jay-z are bitches for this one…

  • http://HIPHOPBLOGSPOT.COM DJ K-NYCE

    he is trying to ride for them. the article clearly states that hes offering cash and free beats to clear the song. what is he supposed to do, just gorilla release the track and get sued and potentially ruin his relationship with the biggest force in hip-hop??? smarten up niggas!

  • Here Comes The Hot Sauce

    Pharrell is a piece of shit. Dude should strap on a dick and at least pretend to be a man. He’s fucking over his best friends for 150K tops, which is like any of us regular folk shitting on our friends for 1,500 or maybe 15K. Disgusting. On another note, “Number One” sucks more transsexual cock than it’s creators.

  • NYC

    The Clipse are hot but we all know that they will never sell any records.
    And as far as Skateboard P… Well the name says it all.
    Fuck Foxy B & Gay Z

  • Mr. Me Too

    Fuck JAY-Z. Fuck PHARRELL.

  • hut

    Who said the clipse will never sell any records I doubt that if they had a label that would get behind them I think they would sell pretty well. Young Jeezy got all theat coke talk from them niggaz.

    The clipse on a sick beat will be a heater, foxy on a sick beat? she’ll just ruin it with her terrible flow she bit off jay-z

  • GOD’s SON

    BUT IT CLEARLY says that JAY-Z *PAID* for the track already before foxy announced that she has been deaf 4 a yr.why is it that JAY-Z is always the “bad” guy.The probably heard the track and thought that they make a hit BUT someone had already PAID for it a year ago.

  • Morgan Cole

    Pharrell is a bitch. If he had a spine he’d tell Hova to go fuck himself. People want a new Clipse album. Nobody wants a new Foxy Brown album.

  • yaboy

    nyc ya dickhead. clipse DOES move units. their first album was a good number above 500,000. what are you talking about? plus, let me know if im wrong but being pushed back time and time again has only made me want this album even more, despite all the corporate bullshit they are caught up in. “free the clipse” is goddamn right.

  • Doc

    Lemme get this right – Foxy had a beat from Pharrell, then she lost her hearing, so rather than let his beat go to waste he gives it to the Clipse, they use the track, now Foxy can hear and Pharrell is trying to make everybody happy by offering free beats to Hov? And yall are blaming P? C’mon now – P wants the Clipse to succeed, so if this is a crazy beat that they can blow off of, what do you expect him to do?

  • elephant nutz

    Selling a beat to someone and then turning around and using it for your own artists is some hoe shit…. point blank.

  • d.GUTTA

    i think they both should release it under the same beat and lets just see whose song has more success.

  • Mr. Me Too

    ^^ That would be dope.

    Fresh, when u start on dem kids???? haa, eye mami…funny blog, needed dat FRESH breath of air

  • Here Comes The Hot Sauce

  • madmax

    free the clispe!!!!

  • the ghost

    Who is this cockblower talking about the clipse cant sell, come on son…
    please be serious, when the last time you heard anybody grind like that and still go plat.

  • Diddy816

    Peeps gotta read this carefully, yeah Foxy had the beat but everyone thought she was out the game and so did Jay Z if he said go head and use it. Clipse is the shit, they started all this shit we listening to now ie all their references etc. Jay Z gotta clear this one and get some free beats

  • Spirit

    As soon as Foxy went deaf, P should have given back the money he got for the track and gotten the paperwork correct on getting ownership of the beat returned to him before he let the Clipse rhyme over it. That was bad business on P’s part.

  • frik

    pharrell’s beats sounds soundclickish these days anyway.

  • AlSween

    lmao…some of ya’ll ppl are dumb. i aint feeling pharrell’s latest stuff but do some of ya’ll understand the situation at all. he sold the beat already to foxy and now wants to use it for clipse. so he is negotiating terms to get the rights to the beat back. pharrell aint screwing anybody and neither is jay by wanting to keep a beat for his artist for her album that was already paid for lol. stupid ppl who can’t read.

  • XRAY3000

    ..Pharrell is dumb for even using that beat again that he already sold..even though Jay allegedly told Pharrell that they wouldnt use it..come on now dude..thats just using your common “business” since…

  • Whoooaa Now!

    >> As soon as Foxy went deaf, P should have given back the money he got for the track and gotten the paperwork correct on getting ownership of the beat returned to him before he let the Clipse rhyme over it. That was bad business on P’s part.

    Read the article, P is offering cash and free beats to Jay. He’s reimbursting him AND giving him free beats. Jay is the one being stuck up. And getting Rick Ross and T.I. on Foxy Brown’s version is only Jays way of underhanding and outsourcing P. Thats some real low-down shit.

    If you people would read the whole article instead of just the shit you want to read, you’d understand. P is trying to give Jay an alternative, by paying Jay for the beat he made himself. Plus giving Jay free beats.

  • dante

    dammn p should have made sure that all the paper work was in order b4 giving the beat to his own artist. as for as foxy brown i think she always had the rhyme skills to pull off a nice ablum but her beats where always wack for a gangsta female image that she potrays… yeh give foxy the track, with reagaing her hearing god probally got something big for her in return. big ups to everybody out there doing it!

  • StarTrakMusic

    EVERYTHING WILL WORK OUT FINE!!! SKATEBOARD P IS CURRENTLY WORKING ON A WAY TO SOLVE THIS, NOBODY IS TO BLAME, AND NOBODY IS MADD!! THANKZ AND HAVE A NICE DAY!

    ~StarTrak

  • Gutta

    after reading this, i gotta think that beat must be crazy for pharell to want to buy it back and give hov free beats(which i would hope he would be able to choose from) or for hov to not release it but in my opinion i think foxy needs it more but would prolly wanna hear clipse on it b4 fox.

  • Jeff

    This is how the record buisness works!!! Deal with it!

  • Yab0y

    If foxy still gets the beat Hov should atleast get on a track for HHNF in return. That’ll def help boost sales for the Clipse

  • http://www.myspace.com/specialopsbez B-EZ

    Fuck Foxy Brown.That bitch was never deaf and she hasnt spit a hot verse since 1997.Hov is the grimiest man in America and the “p” in skateboard now definetly stands for pussy.

  • Hollywood

    It’s crazy that people are trying to blame Jay. Pharrell is trying to make it right, but he screwed it up. He didn’t mean any harm but being in the business as long as he has, he should have squared the paperwork first, instead of waiting for a problem and then trying to fix it. Handle the paperwork and the problem never occurs to begin with.

    It’s crazy how your blaming Pharrell for this too. Everyones biased.

    Truthfully, you think it’s Pharrell’s fault? When Jay gave word that P could let the Clipse use the beat? Jay TOLD PHARRELL TO GO AHEAD AND USE IT. PHARRELL MADE THE BEAT AND HE IS OFFERING TO PAY JAY MONEY AND GIVE HIM FREE BEATS. NOT A BEAT, BUT PLURAL. FREE BEATS. Pharrell shouldn’t even have to do all that when Jay gave him permission in the first place.

  • DAT NIG

    AND WHOEVER COME ON THIS PAGE AND SAY THE NEPTUNES BEATS SUCK IS A FUCKIN DUMBASS MUG. PEOPLE THINK BACK AND NAME SOME OF THE MANY SONGS THAT WERE PRODUCED BY THESE DUDES TO GET THE ARTISTS PUT ON ANOTHER LEVEL FOR THAT TIME. THINK BACK.

  • ProjectNRM

    Just listened to “Wamp Wamp (What it do)” and I have a few thoughts:

    1. I can’t picture anyone other than the Clipse and Slim Thug on this track.

    2. The beat is insane, but is it really worth all this drama?

  • _jAy_

    I’ve never seen so much drama in music in less than a whole year…is it just me or is everyone gettin tired of hearin about rappers problems or beefs right before albums start droppin….Jus to get conversations started about the artist….Fuck that..I fux wit the Clipse….I fux with Young Hova…But this shit needs to just stop…instead of starting problems wat happened to promoting records instead…

  • dzarektor

    yo clipse is some real grimey niggas i give dem respeck pharell is a punk hes no gangsta or nothin so it dont match clipse is still doin neptunes beats wtf i wud be pissed at pharell n never get beats from him again PHARELL CANT EVEN SKATEBOARD

No ones perfect, but I got a feeling dat Jay-z isnt gonna let U have this one. I bet he has somethang special planned 4 Ms. Me Too. Da 1 dat gets hurt in dis mess iz Foxxy. Keep your head up girl.

  • NewYorkG

    TI and Rick Ross on it….???? lol

  • Komatose07

    Because Clipse and Slim Thug were the ones who actually put vocals on the track, why don’t Jiggaman let Clipse go ahead and put it on their new album and let Pharrell and Chad make another sick ass beat for Foxy Brown. Either was it goes, I don’t think there should be such a big dilema over this. Foxy had an unplanned medical condition, things happen. She should move on with her album.

  • Chaz

    Don’t undersetimate the ill na na, i can see her murdering that beat too and hopefully give the state of female hip hop a kick up the backside when she return cause its dire. What i don’t understand is why jay amde that decision without consulting foxy. Afterall didn’t she pay for it? I hope Foxy end’s up with the track as she’s a pure vet and part of the golden era of hip hop. that that’s what the game needs, more golden soldiers not young pretenders. To come back after hearing loss, that’s a ‘Tough Bitch!

IF FOX WENT DEAF AND JAY GAVE THE BEAT BACK TO PHARELL AND LET DA CLIPS RUN IT, THEN OK, BUT IF SHE GOES DEAF AND THEN REGAINS HER HEARING TO HEAR SOMEBODY ELSE ON HER TRACK WITHOUT HER OR JAY PERMISSION, THEN ITS A PROBLEM. FOXY BROWN NEEDS TO GET AS FAR AWAY FROM JAY-Z AS POSSIBLE BECAUSE HE NEVA DO SHIT FOR HER UNLESS HE GET CREDIT, JUST LET EM TAKE DA BEAT FOX AND MURDER ANOTHER ONE.

Now he wants the song back. That is some fucked up shit, but it was Foxy’s and she’ll murder that shit anyways. For the people who say she sux, check the stats on wikipedia (Ill Na Na – 2.8 million, Chyna Doll 1.6 million, Broken Silence 800,000). That’s pretty impressive so fuck yall cuz Foxy Brown is the shit.
