Baaaallllllllliiiiinnnn!!!!

It’s Wednesday on the Internets, and you know what that means: it’s time to pore over last week’s Soundscan figures and lament the fact that rap albums these days are selling as if they had AIDS on them!

In a relatively quiet week for hip-hop albums (even by ’06 standards), Jim Jones a/k/a the Dirt Angel had the highest-selling rap album out, having moved about 94,000 units of his new, bizarrely-titled Hustler’s P.O.M.E. (Product of My Environment).

To be sure, this won’t be enough to save hip-hop, or bring New York back or whatever, but it’s still better than most other rap albums this year, and it’s especially impressive given the fact that the album was released independently through Koch Records.

I don’t buy for a minute this claim that rappers on Koch make $8 per album sold, but if they did, the Dirt Angel would be ballin’ for real, Barenaked Ladies-style. At any rate, you’d have to assume that he’s making out better than the vast majority of his major label peers.

I wrote a review of the album this morning, and it ain’t half that bad. Best Dipset album since Purple Haze? Best Dipset album evar? It should be noted though that I generally could give a rat’s ass about Dipset, so what do I know.

Peep: Jim Jones – Hustler’s P.O.M.E.: Album Review

[The review I wrote of Jim Jones first album back in 2004 remains inexplicably popular to this day. I haven't read it myself in over two years (who's got the time?), but people seem to find it amusing.]

As I noted in the review, Jim Jones’ actual rappin’ ability doesn’t seem to have improved a bit compared to his first couple of albums, but here you don’t notice as much. Instead, the Dirt Angel plays to his strengths, i.e. talking shit and shouting his new signature catchphrase.

Baaaallllllllliiiiinnnn!!!!

And the production seems improved quite a bit compared to some of the other Dipset albums I’ve heard – which I realize is not saying a whole lot, but still. At the very least, they’ve mostly moved beyond rapping over sped-up soul (and, in some cases, Starship) samples.

Will I be spending much more time this winter rocking out to Hustler’s P.O.M.E.? Probably not. But given a choice, I can honestly say I’d rather hear it than the new Jay album. Tell me I’m not going crazy.

    Maybe Jimmy can use some of that money to find ANYBODY to give him a decent haircut. He looks like a homeless afghani that stubled into some rap video. Bol needs to document “catchphrases through history” & why some catch on with the puplic. Ex: (lil john – YEAH…..Holla!, Alllreeady)

    Jim Jones’ album isn’t that bad, but how you can approve his album and totally disapprove Kingdom Come blows my mind, like I said before…you are a IDIOT in every sense of the word.

    General hatred of you aside: That Jim Jones “On My Way To Church” album review you did was fuckin’ hilarious.

    It’s sad really, considering that nowadays you, as you so eloquently put it, suck balls. (no diana ross fondling lil’ kim at the 99 VMAs)

    In any event, if fuckin’ Chingy & Mike Jones put out an album last week you’d say that shit was better than Kingdom Come.

    Blah Blah Blah, Ashlee Crawford is a hater. *yawn*

    Ah well. I look forward to your random “Rey” insult tomorrow or Friday.

    Oh yeah.. Jim Jones sucks. (no Bol’s obsession with “Pretty In Pink”)

    Bol, you just lost cool points for actually even halfway endorsing this joker. Even if the beats are better, which I can attest to, Jim Jones is still a sub-par rapper. I understand that you have your own opinion about things, but come on, dude!! Jim Jones lost me when he came out with ON MY WAY TO CHURCH, especially after he had that RYDER MUZIK mixtape that was probably his best effort evar. I must admit that review from ’04 was pretty hilarious, though, and probably one of the most on-point reviews that you’ve ever posted.

    I was gonna buy Fat Joe’s new album cuz I liked “All or Nothing” & Fat Joe doesn’t seem like too much of an asshole, and I usually don’t listen to Bol’s reviews, but if Fat Joe’s album is as wannabe southern as he makes it sound, I don’t wanna have anything to do with it.

    make 8 is different than get 8 as a label (diplomats) from a distributor (koch)

    as a label you usually got expenses for manufacturing, studio time, producers, retail marketing, promoters, video, mechanicals and so on which come out of that 8 per unit. most likely a distributor fronts certain costs like manufacturing and retail marketing but it’s probably gotta be recouped out of the 8.

    they make something between 3 and 6 per unit depending on how many they sell, what they decide to spend on above and all the other details. and the more you sell the less per unit costs you have.

    and that’s the label , not the artist.

    as an artist and owner of a label jim should be paid two ways out of that though.

    People are mad that for some reason, having sales or spins is equal to having talent.

    Eventually this “Ya’ll are some hatin’ ass niggas” excuse is gonna be as cliche as “If it doesn’t fit, you must acquit.”

    best dipset related album = “diplomatic immunity” volume one..near enough a modern east coast classic

    Come on now, let’s be real for a sec. That Jay album is trash. True he spent a lot of money on it, face yourself and just admit it, your idol caught a dud. Something like a “summer blockbuster” with crazy special effects but still leaves you underwhelmed and regretful.

    Now, we pretty much ALL hate Jim Jones to some degree, but it is possible he might have a better album on his hands THIS TIME. That’s really not saying much (Snoop & Game’s albums are better also).

    Some people’s levels of denial are frightening.

    ^^^^^ Yeah that is a good question. If people feel that way about the Jay album and other times he’s done so well,it might be just that, about what you just said. But it’s not like he did what Xzibit did (with all do respect) where he did pimp my ride, which really didn’t help me much, at all really. Jay just took some time off so I don’t think this fall back will be permanent like with X. 99 problems, dirt off your shoulders, for me songs like that Jay be putting out, gives me hope that he still has it in him somewhere if he can drop good hits.That’s just my opinion though.

  • Prince Of The South

    Glad someone agree with me that this clown can’t rap. Balling was garbage, but it did it’s thing. The hook he had got stuck in people’s head and 94,000 bought his album. Best luck to Dipset, they getting paid can’t knock that, but Jay going to do all the albums that came out this year( Cam, 40 Cal, Duke Da God and Jimmy’s) totals his first week. Guess they wasn’t balling too hard.

    Looks like the dumbass comments only come out at night…

    When ya wake up in the morning and see what you posted you should be embarrassed.

    I feel sorry for your father E, copyright YN (i see you mullato)

    @ Young A Simmons
    Is it because I don’t dickride The Game like a bunch of the faggots on this site?(no slick pulla)

    I call it how I see it. Personally I think The Game is a average rapper who is way overrated.

    Santana on the other hand is really entertaining. Juelz has good production and clever lyrics.

    And he dosen’t have a song where he is on the verge of tears over his relationship with another man.

    Faggot ass Dre.

    If SuperHead could rap, she’d be dangerous.

    If Suge Knight could rap, he’d be dangerous.

    If Lebron James could rap, he’d be dangerous.

    If Diddy could rap, he’d be dangerous.

    If Dame could rap, he’d be dangerous.

    If Pharrell could rap, he’d be dangerous.

    No shit Bol, If you could write a interesting blog you’d be dangerous.

  • If I could rap, I’d be dangerous.

    Yeah, If Jim Jones could rap like ummmmm….lets say Jay-Z.
    Yeah Bol, If you could write an interesting Blog you’d be dangerous too.

    Co-sign that top 5 Dipset album thing. What The Game’s Been Missing was the best $6 I spent in a while (sale price). Doctor’s Advocate was dope. JR Writer is fire. Juelz is entertaining. Jadakiss would lyrically kill all them dudes tho.

    Real Talk.

    Capo wants to smack Sickamore’s kufi off. Baaaallllliinnnnn! (Jones 2008 by the way, he should be on the ballot). Recently Atlantic Records A&R Sickamore wrote a blog comparing G-Unit to the New York Yankees and Dipset being the Mets. Jones’ response?

    “Hmmmmm, screw Sickamore. I’ll slap the shit out of Sickamore. That’s how I feel about his analogy. I’ll go in his office and choke him out in my building, smell me?” Jones told SOHH.com. “He lucky I ain’t beat the shit out of him around the elevators when we passed him by one day in the office. But I can’t violate my contract cause I’m an executive up there. He better watch his little skinny ass though. I’ll put a whole foot in his ass. That’s the only thing that’s keeping that boy afloat. That little contract.”

    BETTA HOPE THAT CONTRACT IS WRITTEN IN STONE……BAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLNNNNNNN

  • The DJ Formerly Known as N-CREDIBLE

    Barring any unexpected jumps, The Game is on pace to sell between 400,000 and 450,000 copies of his new album “Doctor’s Advocate” during its first week in stores. This is far from The Game’s much talked about 1 million units sold in one week.

    “Doctor’s Advocate” sold 150,000+ units during its first day in stores. These are speculative numbers and can be affected by sudden increased publicity or additional promotional pushes.

    The Game will debut at #1 on next week’s Billboard charts.

  • The DJ Formerly Known as N-CREDIBLE

    The Best Albums this year came from the West Coast…Snoop and Game…when its all said and done Snoop may be the most successful(longevity) rapper ever…him and LL Cool J…but LL been puttin out trash as of lately so its hard to count him…the question is…Does Snoop get the respect he deserves???

  • The DJ Formerly Known as N-CREDIBLE

  • SUPERMAN

    EMINEMS RE-UP IS GONNA SELL MORE THAN ALL THE ALBUMS YOU PEOPLE ARE TALKING ABOUT!

  • 11kap

    Rap and Hip Hop aint sellin, because niggas keep hatin and won’t let an artist just be an artist. everyone wants to be a critic. The bad thing about it is how niggas read the stuff people say on here and believe it without doing the research themselves. That’s like someone telling you about a book when you could just read it yourself.

  • The DJ Formerly Known as N-CREDIBLE

    Let me guess…your in denial about Jay album being sub-par…am I right…ITisWHATitIS…

  • The DJ Formerly Known as N-CREDIBLE

    YOu white folks kill me with that Eminem ish…the great white hope…

    Nice to see Eskay on here speaking truth (check up near the top of the post). Bol, it’s getting to the point where no one is going to read you anymore because you have absolutely no opinion left, only blind hate. If you in any way represent the mindstate of hip-hop fans today, hip-hop is dead (no flyest angel).

  • B_hiphoppitt

    He done better than anyone could ever imagine…now this nigga is second only to Juelz as far as DipSet and the ability to sell records…Koch dont give dudes no promo, if he had the promo that Jay or Busta got he would have sold 200,000

  • http://www.yousuck.com 305 Monster

    Jim who? I can’t believe this guy sold those many albums. To me, this guy has no talent at all. …We fly high, we ballin’ / WTF? That song sucks! It’s incredible what people buy these days. He sound like he is drunk when he supposedly “raps”, because I hate to even call it rap.

  • Stax On Deck

    Jim Jones album is fiyah. I’m from the South and I been bumping his new album since it came out. Stop Hatin, Cop The Cd, and Judge yourself. He did his thug on da album. Fuck What Bol talkin bout! 100 you heard me!!!

  • The DJ Formerly Known as N-CREDIBLE

  • dope boi

    maybe jim jones should use all the ‘money’ or wotever makes him thnk he ballin to hire ghost writers cos lets face it he nt the best rapper around and if he thnk he bringin back new york then ppl betr look somewhere else for gud music.

  • REAL TALK

  • rdl

    Seems Hovember came and went and no one really cared but not only is ballin makin noise but its gonna be a dipset xmas too?

    Not feelin Kingdom Come either but it will sell regardless so if numbers are what its all about Jay wins but if stayin relevant when no one understands why anyone cares about u means u won then Jimmy won
