Put Your Guns Up For Sept. 11th’s Most Anticipated Album…

It looks like Killa Cam is going to have the last laugh on September 11th while sitting next to his pool out in the back wearing chancletas. On that day Koch Records a/k/a The New Millenium Def Jam will release the latest album from Harlem rapper 40 Cal. The scenario breaks down like this… Fifty Cent and KanYe West were neck and neck for most sales during a debut week when 40 Cal’s four thousand units basically pulled the same number of sales from Fifty’s totals. Final first week tallies had KanYe at 875,000 and Fifty at 872,468. 40 Cal was like the Ross Perot of this rap shit.

I remember when I thought the Dips were the best fucking thing in rap music. To this day ‘DipSet Anthem’ is one of the most hardbody beats that rap music has ever produced. It’s some shit that conjures up images in my mind of Hannibal crossing the Pyrennes on elephants and shit. Hard. Body. Nigga! Everything else from them pales in comparison. Talk about some dudes falling off a cliff. The Dips fell so hard I don’t even use the Duke Da God mixtape to break my weed up on. I use that shit as a doorstop when I go up to the roof to blow my trees. So weed is still involved I suppose.

Does anyone still care about the Dips anymore? I still reserved some interest in Juelz Santana for a minute because he was the most compelling rapper out of the whole lot and Cam’Ron still has the talent to turn in at least an entertaining song, but who the fuck cares about the rest of these dudes? I remember reading the story where some dude popped his homey with a .40caliber gun while listening to 40 Cal’s song ’40 Cal’. That’s the kind of irony that will put your shit in the Guiness Book of World Records, but making you a serviceable rapper… Not so much.

There was a time when all of these cats were the hardest working crew in the game. Hell Rell was even making albums from prison like Tupac. That’s what it takes to excel on some street level shit. You have to keep serving these fiends with fresh product constantly, or else we will go to the next dealer, and then you ain’t on our radar any longer. I don’t even know if Freaky Zekey’s album ever came out. I suppose I could Google that, but that is how ambivalent I am. I don’t even feel like looking that shit up on the internets, and I’m on the internets right now.

The Dips do have die-hard fans though or else Koch wouldn’t take the time to issue a press release to remind us of their weed plate tax write off that is being dropped on September 11th. I’m waiting for my media advance copy so I can see if the Dips still have any fire in their camp, or if they all just need to stay on vacation. Chilling by the pool out back.

Btw, Fifty Cent still lost.

    man first off…1st, second off every great empire has their fall…look at murda inc im sorry to say but truth be told, murda inc ran shit late 99-late 03(due to Ashanti)then if u got back farther than that..No Limit, Ruff Ryders all the good shit that came out…niggas run outta steam and start signing low stamina players to shoot they 3′s and they missin the bucket…im REALLY sorry to say but look at the roc in the position they in now..Nore throwin chains in the basura, beans makin songs with kellz, and bleek is just…bleek i mean dont get me wrong bleek is ill in his own way but he slack. BOTTOM LINE EVERY GREAT EMPIRE FALLS ATLEAST 2 AND A HALF YEARS AFTER ITS PEAK. ITS A KNOWN FACT(A GOOD 3 YEARS IF LUCKY)

    The Dips are the only group in rap left that I actually bother listening too…

    As a matter of fact if it was not for the Dips I would not be in this website right now…

    On September 11th im going to cop Kanye and 40…

    And when Cam drops, Im copping that too…

  • Fire

    Dipset are some of the biggest jokes in rap music, especially Cam’ron. He helps fuel the narrow minded view of hip hop that ignorant people who don’t know anything about hip hop possess because of the stupid things he’s said. I hope every member of Dipset quits making music very soon. Same with wack joke rappers all over.

  • Incilin

    Ahh, is saying “50 lost” the new thing now cuz I don’t get how he could have lost in this case. If anything, it’s 50 who killed the Dips by suggesting Jim Jones be boss (And then a week later, whaydoyouknow Cam gets kicked out his own crew) I mean, if you wanta say he lost to Kanye i suppose its okay. But to the dips? To 40 cal?

  • Cameron Giles

    get my fuckin pool in the back

  • SCARTOWN

    Who the fuck would call the Dips an empire?They never came close to moving what G Unit,The ROC,Murder Inc. did.Fuck it,none of them are empires!The Romans had an empire.These niggas rap,act like retarded teenagers(

  • Cuban Link

    Actually Billy, Crunk Musik was there most hardbody song ever.When that song comes on, you need to knock out whoevers next to you.And if im listening to it on my computer, I usually just punch the screen as hard as I can.

    And, um, u didnt throw up Kenny Cheasney’s units up there, whichll prolly be about 900K.

    But real talk, Fiddy lost cuz neither 50, Kanye, Kenny, OR 40 Cal is gonna be number.Spider Loc is gonna get the top spot on that infamous week.Real talk.

    the dips are still strong, santana coming out soon, killa season 2 (movie) and another jim jones album. they aint done yet, they just breathing right now. just watch

  • SilkCity973

    Wow…Sad, I knew Dipset were some Gimmicks when they 1st came out. There what I call the “bitch nigga movement”. All there support comes from youngins. Ages 14-21,22. Alot of people forget how Cam exposed himself off the jump with that 1st album cover..lol. Confessions of Fire huh… And 50 didn’t lose brah, He’s got 3 records on Curtis that Kanye ain’t touchin with nothing on Graduation. Graduation is more overrated than anything.

    WHAT I DONT GET IS HOW ALOT OF LAMES SAYIN THA DIPS WERE NEVER GOOD AND THEY WERENT AN EMPIRE, AND HOW THEY SAY THAT CAM AND THA DIPS DONT TALK ABOUT REAL ISH. CAM AND THA DIPS WOULD TALK ABOUT HUSLTIN AND OTHER STREET ISH. COME HOME TO ME, PURPLE HAZE AND, DIPLOMATIC IMMUNITY 1 ARE ALL GREAT ALBUMS, I BET EVERYONE TALKS ISH AND HAVE NEVER HEARD THOSE ALBUMS. EVERYONE JUDGED THEM FOR KILLA SEASON AND THA DUKE DA GOD MIXTAPES. LISTEN TO WAHT THEY DID. I DONT LIKE THA NEW ISH IVE BEEN HEARIN LATELY FROM THA DIPS THO. CAM JUELZ AND JIM GOTTA COME WITH SOME STUFF LIKE FROM BACK IN THE DAY. HUSTLERS POEM WAS A GOOD ALBUM, AND I DIDNT EVEN LIKE BALLIN. HUSTLERS POEM WUZ A WAY BETTER ALBUM THA JAY’S KINGDOM COME. ADMIT IT

  • http://XXL.MAG.COM BPBLOCK

    AND CAM DID MURDER FIF ON THAT BEEF THING. CAM CAME WITH A BETTER DISS. SOMETIMES I FEEL LIKE IM CRAZY CUZ EVERYONE SAYS FIFTY WON. I THOUGHT RAP BATTLIN WAS ABOUT WHO DISSES WHO BETTER, NOT WHO SELLS MORE ALBUMS. HIP HOPS DYIN CUZ OF PEOPLE LIKE SCARTOWN, WHO ARE MORE INTERESTED IN ALBUM SALES THAN LYRICS

  • http://www.erealitycheck.blogspot.com EReal

    Yeah chillin by the pool the size of 50s hottub. lol.

    No matter what 50 wins homie. Whatcha gonna say when he outsells your new best friend Kanye? Dude will do his numbers, make his bank and when the G-Unit album drops betcha they jump back on the dick. New mixtapes like every month, these cats are the only real crewof hard working rappers left in the game, and everyone just wants to see them lose. Pop in a gang green mixtape, chronic 2006, Case dismissed, or any number of the G-Unit mixtapes. G-Unit IS the new dips homie. Either way, If the competition puts the spotlight back on hiphop and I get some good music, I could give a shit. They both have enough money already. This whole thing was devised by 50 and Jay anyway and if you dont believe that, than you’ll believe anything. Diplomatic Immunity was my shit, and even Juelz had me interested for a hot min, but Cam? common bro, cam wasnt ever really that good, it took Jay to blow him up, and without Jay what is dude now? Exactly. Piggybackin rappers lose, backpackers too. Either way, thats my .02, Batman.

    1 hunned.

    Kenny Chesney will surprise some people. I got my money on him beating out Kanye the Gay and 50 Cent the flaming douchebag.

  • og bobby j

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    You must be, at least in this instance, because 50 did win. How would you say Cam won if 50 basically forced him to go into hiding for a while? What happened to the hot summer Cam promised? Must be with his pool in the back.

  • C-Money

    yo sunday – the dips never made a good track in their life period.

    just reread your column…..most hardbody beat but if any other rapper got that beat it would’ve been a wrap…..half their songs don’t even make sense..their is something in cam’s music that brainwashes people because to this day i can’t understand why anyone would ever listen to him

    his albums should be in the comedy section of a store…maybe i answered my own question cuz i laugh at his music but i dont take it as real music. He’s a comedian

    If by classic you mean horrible and unimaginative diss, then yes, it was very classic. Cam’ron and Dipset are clowns that need to stop making music.
