The Dirt Angel Marries Fisty Scent…
Ain’t shit interesting been going on in Hip-Hop over the last few days other than XXL Mag Dot Com going black for a few hours. That was until I heard this juicy tidbit from my haze dealer up in Harlem. The Dirt Angel a/k/a Witch Doctor a/k/a Jim Jones is about to sign on the dotted line with G-Unit. This signals the demise of Dip Set whether you want to believe me or not. Let’s call this natural selection in terms of rap music. Dip Set was unable to adapt after they were banished from the Roc and this event is the final nail in the coffin of their movement.
Of all the acquisitions that Fisty Scent has made this one seems the most risk filled. Jim Jones doesn’t bring a proven catalog of hits like the Mobb did, nor does he have the head-banging energy of the riot starters M.O.P. At the end of the day these supposed advantages didn’t even help these artists thrive at G-Unit so what makes Fisty think that Jim Jones will fare any better? What I think Fisty likes about Jim Jones is his Tupac imitating drawl and rhyme flow. While Fisty often sounds like a southern rapper with a mouth full of marbles, Jim Jones reminds me of Tupac in his glory days, which for me weren’t all that lyrically significant anyhoo.
But there are thousands of millions of billions of people that adore Tupac for his “realness” and if that is the cologne that Jim Jones carries a bottle of I can see why Fisty digs the smell. You schmell me? Plus Jim Jones hates NaS. And Fisty does too. Actually Fisty loves NaS, but NaS rebuffed him so now Fisty hates him. It’s just a crazy love triangle. But don’t let me get off track, this shit is gonna be huge for New York City rappers. Everyone is either moving down south or out west. That New York City money is all dried up right now since no one is feeling Jigga or NaS and Joell Ortiz and Saigon are too new to take charge of the game at this point.
The biggest story is Cam’Ron though. He was the unquestionable prince of the city when the Dips were part of the Roc family. Yeah there was friction inside of that camp but you couldn’t question the fact that Cam, Juelz and Jim were about to become problems. What a difference a day makes, and what a difference Jim Jones on G-Unit will mean for the rap game. Niggas are scrambling to choose sides right now. Will Tony Yayo go to jail for smacking the shit out of Henchman’s son? Allegedly I might add. Will Young Buck return to Cash Money? Will Lloyd Banks go back into ghey porn? Will someone get Cam’Ron’s fucking pool out back?!?
