The New New New New York

If you’re a constant reader of my blogs, you might be under the impression that I’ve turned my back on New York hip hop. Maybe because I called Jeezy the King of New York or probably because I write things like “New York Isn’t Enough”. But it’s more like tough love on my second (Trini Massive!) hometown. I’ve helped artists like Saigon and Tru-Life get deals, as well as supported every artist who’s come up since 2002.

Now the underground scene has changed a little bit in the tri-state area. Mixtapes aren’t as relevant as they once were, so it’s a little harder for new MC’s to get a buzz. The DVD game was popping for a quick second, but the allure of flashing guns at the camera in front of your projects has lost its luster. But through it all, there are still unsigned spitters making noise who you should watch out for in 2006-2007. Shit, I’m an A&R so I should be watching out for them as well. I’m going to release my annual Power 30 CD this fall ranking the top 30 MC’s all around the country that haven’t released an album. So this blog is sort of a preview of who’s going to be on it.

This list right now though isn’t in any particular order. The only criteria is that they have to be unsigned. And without further ado, The New New New New York.

JOELL ORTIZ
ortiz.jpg I first got a Joell Ortiz mixtape at a pool hall in Chelsea Manhattan. His management gave it to me and it said “Who The F*&^ Is Joell Ortiz?”. At the time I couldn’t really care less who he was, but I took it home and went crazy over the lyrics. I called them up the next day. Joellz has a refreshing flow reminiscent of how MC’s used to put it down in the mid-90’s. The same way Redman or Buckshot didn’t have to be a crazy killer to be respected, but more on mic presence and wordplay. There was a rumor that he signed to Aftermath for $750,000, if it’s true more power to him.

SERIUS JONES

I’m huge fans of people who aren’t “over the top” and extra. Serius, like Joell, gives me that same “I’m not frontin this is who I am” vibe that’s gives me hope that there’s a new breed of MC who’s paying attention. Not just the cliche dope-boy-fresh-magic- trapstar-gangsta-I’m not-a-rapper rappers. I like to think of him of the Muhammad Ali of his generation, not dominating wise, but more the swagger and jokes he cracks. Then he can get real serious quickly, just ask Murder Mook or Jin.


UNCLE MURDER

murder.jpgIts Murda nigga! Listening to Uncle Murder is like watching Terminator 2: Judgement Day. He is easily the toughest talker on wax ever. Too Hard For Hip Hop is the name of his new tape and the things he says on there would make N.W.A. blush. But for some reason, I can’t stop listening to it. Now that he’s co-signed by DJ Green Lantern, my favorite producer, he’s ready to take it to the next level. The only problem with all the gangsta talk, if one bad thing ever happens to you, all your credibility goes down the drain. Only time will how far he’s gonna go, but one thing’s for sure; It’s going to be an entertaining ride. Say Uncle!

SPOT
spot450.jpg I’ve done two mixtapes with Spot and so far the feedback has been tremendous. He’s a great talent because he’s not only a lyricist, but he’s also a producer. He’s also a ghostwriter a quite a few notable rappers in the game. Spot represents youthfulness and the outlaw I don’t give a fuck about anything but my money mentality of today’s 80’s babies.

PAPOOSE
pap.jpgThe 1.5 Million Dollar man should have a deal any second now. Its not like people aren’t offering him deals (believe me I know), he’s just waiting for the right one. The Flipmode addition makes his situation more interesting. It could swing his project upwards or spiral him to obscurity depending on what Busta does next. Whatever it is, I’m cheering for him. Anyone who grinds like that deserves they’re shot.

  • http://www.HEFNAZ.com Trips NaeBcm

    All yall niggas is saying the same thing…. which is something that has been going on in hip hop since the late 90′s. Lyrics have stopped mattering….Nigga you can spit flames till they call the fire Marshall but if you dont got a catchy hook and a gay ass dance to go along with ya song…..you not gon break gold.

    What we should be focusing on now in hip hop is not whos the hardest or whos the most gangsta or who sold the most crack…. Its who can spit ill Metaphors, alongside excellent song structures, with remarkable stage prescence and who keeps it real with not only themselves but the fans. Only then will Hip Hop be saved…… Need an example check out

    Papoose records aint gonna appeal to everybody, this we know.

    Spot got it. THIS we know.

    Joel Ortiz, ive been hearing good things about but havent peeped his music.

    Serius Jones only claim to fame is the one battle he got over Jin.

    my verdict is still out on uncle murder but judging by initial impression (fuckit, his name alone) he’s not gonna contribute a whole lot of anything to the game. The Green Lantern co-sign is a plus though.

    He needs to get a bigger buzz. He had it going for a minute on the SMACK’s but then he just chilled out. I told him that the last time I saw him. He needs to go harder because people like him a lot. I feel Uncle Murder might be in his lane tho.

    other than that, NY has been stale in terms of new talent…

  • Curt Dog

    Every rapper on that list has a shot, Spot especially because he so young. Pap will do better than Lupe, and Joell is a fitting replacement for Pitbull lol. Murder has to go beyond bang bang, and I still have to hear a good Serius Jones song.

  • Nay Nimley

    New Yorkers have forgotton the true essence of hip hop, and that is competition, stickin with ya people so that you as a whole can be better than them. In 93 “them” meant the west coast. In 2006, them is the south. As dominent as the south appears to be its only because we as New Yorkers support these wack niggas and try to copy they style. That’s why the south would never beed with the East. What NY hip hop needs is the west to come back, they have been and the way it looks will always be our nemesis. And they need NY to come back also, cause they don’t consider the south direct competition. Hip Hop has become the soundtrack to high school life. We don’t NEED to bring it back to the streets, it neva shoulda left, and FYI its more goin on in the hood and drugs and violence, this country is getting safer and safer, but rappers claim the hood is getting more violent which is funny. Back in 88 when you said you was from the hood and survived, that’s sayin sumthin. These days, big deal. Niggas need to jus make real music, we need Commons, we need 50s, we need Kanyes, we need Kweli, we need Wu Tangs, we need Fabolus’s, we need Nellys, we need BALANCE in this art, because Hip Hop will probably NEVER be ours again, and I don’t mean NY I mean ghetto people of color.

    Interesting breakdown man and to be honest being on the west coast I was not aware of Joel Ortiz so it’s always good to get that kind of inishgt and now I will check for some of his stuff. The other names I had heard and I am pretty familiar with the homie Spot and I think he is a key player not just in new york but overall in the game.
    I feel where your coming from with this kind of list and being critical of your home turf. I am looking forward to that top 30 list and to be honest I feel that their are so many young artists coming from the west coast and their is such a big transformation in the game now that I have a list of about 15 guys to watch who are still unsigned but it’s just a matter of time and just like the guys you mentioned they all bring something unique to the table, also I think it’s a safe bet that you know two of the names that will be on that list lol

    I see alot of people haven’t heard of Joel Ortiz, now I’m not a big fan of his. I only heard of him when he was on stage at the Hot 07 Summer Jam Pre-Show, but I’ll give him his credit. He was spitting. And you know its hard to capture the attention of a crowd that doesnt know shit about you, but he did it.

    I’m the type of person that pays attention to lyrics, and from the shit that he said on stage that day, he’ s lyrically gifted.

    Serious… We’ll see.

    Spot… Never Heard of him.

    Papoose… I know that the masses wont take to his brand of lyricism, but hate all you want, or be weary of his concept raps, that dude is nice. He’s one of the only emcees that has come along in a while that makes me say, “Yo did you hear what he just said?”

    I see what you tried to do Sick and I give you props for it. Lately you been posting some good shit. But son, none of these niggaz are nice except maybe Papoose, and he might wanna either sign a deal or head on over to Koch.

    There isn’t aaaaanyone nice on the horizon in the North, South, East, West, international, whateva. That is because niggaz are so lame with the same recycled flow, topics, gear, everything. The last niggaz I really felt like that were MF Doom and J Live, but they been falling off lately too, just getting old. The rap game passes alot of dudes by, even your boy Jigga.

    If cats like Kweli, Mos Def, OC, Buckshot, Pharoah Monch and the gotta struggle just to get heard, then there is no way that these cats you mentioned are gonna make any impact. If the veterans with fan bases can’t pop, then like Nas said, Hip Hop is Dead dunny. You might wanna look at some other positions besides being an A&R cause shit is looking bleaaak like Memphis…….

    No offense but………..

    And we are suppose to hail these cats as greats for the next generation (whatever) because? You know, I’m tired of all these elitest and “experts” telling me who I should like. I’m sick of them forcing these overhyped internet MCs down my throat. Can I decide myself, if I like them or not. Don’t tell me I should like them.

    I don’t mind checking them out or supporting them if or when that time comes. But, don’t force that on the listeners. I’m tired of the “experts” telling me what’s real or fake, tired of being told what’s real Hip Hop. Maybe these cats aren’t my cup of tea as artist. Maybe they don’t appeal to me. But let me decide that.
