Slapping people is the new dis record

I should’ve known when I heard a few weeks ago that Tony Yayo allegedly slapped the shit out of Jimmy Henchmen’s teenage son that this would only be the beginning of a trend in which rappers go around and slap people to generate publicity for their various upcoming projects.

I mean, it’s seems like the perfect crime when you think about it. Whoever your opponent is will be way more embarrassed than they would be if you made a dis record about them (think about the last several dis records you’ve heard), but it’s not like they can do much about it.

If they complain to the police, they’ll be considered a snitch, which is obviously verboten in hip-hop/the ghetto, but if they actually retaliate with violence that goes beyond slapping somebody, everybody will know who did it and why. So they’re kinda screwed either way.

For what it’s worth, as long as nobody gets killed (it’s been several weeks now and no casualties yet), I’d say this is a healthier situation than what was going on in the mid ’90s with Bad Boy and Death Row. Like I said, it’s not like any of these dudes could actually get away with killing somebody.

In case you haven’t heard, and I can’t imagine anyone hasn’t at this point(the shit’s plastered all over this site), Tru Life is claiming to have done all sorts of shit to Dipset, including having punched Cam’ron in the face the other day, and stolen Jim Jones ring when some other kids beat him up recently.

Hilariously, Tru Life is claiming that he didn’t do this to generate publicity for himself, but because he didn’t like how Dipset has been promoting gangbanging among today’s youth. So you see, him beating the crap out of Cam’ron and Jim Jones was actually sending out a message of peace.

I also found it kinda odd that Tru Life would so freely admit to having done all of this illegal shit. For example, in the statement his management released to this site, he makes it clear that yes, Tru Life has been going around beating and robbing people, which, last time I checked, isn’t exactly legal.

To wit:

The rumors are true. He did punch Cam’ron in the face. But he honestly doesn’t want to promote violence. He really feels strong about ending gang violence.

But like I said, it’s not like Cam and the Dips have much in the way of recourse, especially since Tru Life is apparently such a badass. Cam himself was just on TV the other day talking about how he doesn’t talk to the police. Which makes you wonder how they’re planning on responding to this.

    This entire post could have been a 2 sentence comment .. watch

    “Instead of making a diss track, I’d rather smack someone cuz “stop snitching” will prevent me from getting caught.

    How do you think Cam is gonna come back?”

    ^^ See?

    Bol, Posting for the sake of Posting is as bad as these Mixtapes rappers who put out 100 crappy ass songs just to keep their name out there.

    The slap has replaced gun-fire and smokin barrels.

    this is progression in Hip-Hop.

    i can see the next few street DVD’s filled with the usual rented jewelry display, senseless braggadocio of “keepin it real, son”, and death-threats replaced with “son, i’ll slap da shit outta ya, and ya moms and daughter too”.

    at least it would help out some of these retards who try to look tough wit worn-out prop guns that have probably been used in the first Rambo flick.

    Put it like this, if i point a gun at a camera it’s because i’m aimin for da Cameraman.

    My fellow MC’s slap away. Even the cops allow it as an “excusable act of violence”.

    Fuck BOL for him dissing Pac in his previous article

    Bol…

    You make some really good points but you complicate everything too much.

    The answer is simple Tru Life is talking shit. He is trying to get publicity. See, a couple of months ago everything was beautiful for Tru because he was beefing with Dipset and people were acknowledging his existence. But then the 50 and Cam beef came out of no where and that left Tru life aside and nobody gave a fuck about that beef anymore.

    So he waited for the 50 and Cam beef to settle down and now he is trying to start beef by making up storys and shit that he knows is going to upset Dipset therefore they are going to have to diss him again.

    Last I remember was Jim Jones challenging Tru Life to a boxing match for 80,000. Why the fuck didnt Tru accept the fight? But then he goes on a spree where he robs and assults Dipset and they apparently don’t even swing back in self defense?

    Fuck oughtta here Tru!!!

    What you fail to understand is you or one of your boys are going to end up shot for this bullshit!

    Oh and by the way I have seen Jim Jones down in Miami this year and he didn’t have one body gaurd, so there goes that….

    Ya dig??

  • DollarWells

    They should take the slap shit to its logical conclusion: rappers need to start beefing OLD school style; glove slaps, pistols at dawn, etc …

    Cam’s down with the Horse and Carriage, after all …

  • Danny

    Oh and by the way…

    Everybody hates on Dipset but if you really think about it they are the biggest trendsetters in the game..

    Who the fuck do you think started the “I’ll slap you” shit?

    Lets go back a couple of years to the Nas/Dipset when Jim Jones said “I’ll slap the Kuffi of yo muther fuckin head”.

    Ever since then everybody wants to slap everybody else…

    Nuff Said…

    Ya dig??

    it’s not like they actually did slap nas, though.

    unless you haven’t heard niggas shot up Yayo’s moms crib which, according to the Jesus Christ of Hip Hop, Christopher Wallace, definitely means there is beef. Where as Yayo was doing a “dis” record “someone” *be gotdamned if i’ma call names* felt it necessary to turn his mom into a dreamcatcher.

  • http://xxlmag.com houston’s finest

    read between the lines people: tru-dyke needs a buzz to sell a couple more album. the man was forgotten and needed something to get his name out there again. supposedly this nigga done stole and beat up alot of people, but he doesn’t support violence. last time i checked, all them dipset niggas got they jewelry and tru is still mad. why, i don’t know. but being jelous is a female trait.

    No disrespect “Danny”, but you GOTTA be frum Florida! Ofcourse Jim didnt have a bodyguard with him in Miami, he’s out on South Beach!..It aint like he’s poppin’ up in lil Haiti, Carrol City or Pork and Beans…
    Frum the sounds of things though, they need one though!..Ed Lover cosighned tha punch, so we know it happend!..Hell, he even gave Cam a chance to call Power 105 himself and give his side of tha story..Truthfully, Ima Hip Hop fan..I kinda could care less who’s got what, and who can whoop who’s @ss..To be honest neither one of these dudes has put out anything substantial to Hip Hop(less we count specific tracks frum SDE and Come Home with Me)..I say that to say this..Tru Life wont really gain anything frum this, and it will probably only lead to him having some kind of short lived beef with whomever tha Dips are employing to keep there name in tact..And as for the Dips..I cant disagree with you they trully are trendsetters..Desighner Hip Huggers, pink clothes and accessories..Bedazzling your t shirts and belt buckles..mmmmm no!
    That slappin sh%t has been around in Hip Hop since Testosterone has been around in Hip Hop..Treach slapped YZ, KRS One slapped tha sh%t out of ol boy frum PM Dawn..Hell, even Miami’s own Trick daddy dollars got slapped tha f%ck up by Trick Trick…My question is, if all this slapping and sh%t is going on to “stop tha fake sh%t” and “expose lames”..Why aint none of these drug dealing rappers slappin up cops?..Fight tha power, not tha people!..Rastafari~

  • Crossbow

    I wasn’t checkin’ for Tru Life before he slipped Cam, and I don’t plan on checkin’ for him now. With that being said, maybe cats should take notice that when you talk about having an arsenal that rivals the old USSR, murder people when you get board, and smack ugly looking beanies off people’s heads, maybe, just maybe, someone will call you out on your bullshit. I’m fuckin’ done with rap, anybody know when Linkin Park’s album drops?

    can’t even steal on a nigga, mutherfuckas a sue. people are hilarious, i don’t think promoting violence is cool, but all the dipset fans do. that is until the pink panther gets punched in the face. now all of a sudden dude just trying to get attention. when he was just saying what he would do to these clowns, everybody said he was a fraud. now that he actually did it, everybody wanna see proof. Its everywhere, it happened get over it. just come to the realization that these rap dudes that claim to be bloods ain’t as tough as they say. it took barely a couple of hours for cam to come out about 50, where is his response at now. maybe he should hold another press conference to tell the people why he got stole on. this should just be further proof of what type of dude CAM’RUN is. If it was the other way around it would be 50 people on here saying how real dipset bird gang is. it is what is.

    what the fuck. you confused the shit out of me. First, you implied Camron slapped that hoe in order to end gang banging, but after i read the statement it’s quite clear that he hit him, yet he dosn’t promote it. Of course no matter what it’s still hypocritical.

  • Nasser

    DAMN, I SEE ALOT OF DUDES IN HERE TRYIN’ TO MAKE IT SEEM LIKE TRU-LIFE PUNCHED “CAM’RUN MILES” WITH THE COP’S OR SOMETHING.

    ED LOVER FROM POWER1O5.1 SAID THAT THE COPS JUST HAPPENED TO BE STUCK IN TRAFFIC IN THEIR SQUAD CAR’S AT THE TIME MINDING THEIR OWN BUSINESS.

    TRU-LIFE SEES CAM’RUN AND APPROACHES HIM FLASHING JENNY JONES’ RING.

    WORD’S WERE EXCHANGED AND TRU-LIFE PUNCHES CAM’RUN IN THE EYE.

    IT WAS ALSO SAID THAT PEOPLE SAW CAM’RUN’S EYES START TO WATER OR HE JUST LOOKED LIKE HE WAS GONNA CRY.

    AFTER CAM’RUN GOT HIT HE AND HIS CREW FELL BACK FROM TRU-LIFE AND HIS CREW.

    THE POLICE SAW THIS FROM THEIR SQUAD CARS AND STARTED FLASHING THEIR LIGHTS AND SHINED A FLASHLIGHT ON THEM.

    WHEN THE COPS DID THIS EVERYONE DISPERSED.

  • Dipset

    If this story was true than Tru Life would have been arrested on the spot. Their saying there was a whole bunch of cops around.
