You Ain’t Ready For Me

I must admit I was a lil salty when I saw some anonymous BET blog the other day that listed the top five writers in hip-hop. Of course, Bol and Eskay deserve their propers, as does the hardest working Korean in the game and Shaheem “Huggy Bear” at MTV. (Shit the first two are on the team and I’ve been trying the hire the other two for about five years. Real Talk magazine woulda bodied HHW, but I digress.) Anyway, the point is where was I on the list? Haven’t I been good to you? Who gave you everything you ever needed to know about the Big Homie’s AG comeback? Who broke the news of the 50/Kanye 9-11 showdown? Who hipped you to their RS cover? Who got the funky breaks? The rare audio? The witty unpredictable prose and natural game? Y’all ingrates stay sleeping on the kid.

Let’s be clear: Just because I run a media empire doesn’t mean I can’t get down and dirty in the sandbox with the new generation. If a nickel bag gets sold in the park, I want in. I’ll be 37 in about 30 days but I’m about to be in the best shape of my life. I got my mind right, money been right, getting my teeth right and I’m on a mission to be diesel at 40. (No ‘roids included, Mr. Mitchell.)

But I don’t get mad I put down on a pad (or a keyboard)—give you something that you never had. I hinted at it last summer but since no one has swagger jacked my idea I’m gonna do it, goddamnit! Winter begins and YN goes in: Next Sat Dec 22 12 noon til Sun Dec 23 12 noon. 24 blogs in 24 hours.

I repeat in the memory of Mike Jones’ career: Winter begins and YN goes in: Next Sat Dec 22 12 noon til Sun Dec 23 12 noon. 24 blogs in 24 hours. The psycho Purple Hulk can rejoice. I’m adding another benchmark to my HOF career. Cancel Christmas! My fourth quarter release ain’t getting pushed back.

Details to follow. In the meantime, digest. Who’s the best?

    its not hard to post 24 blogs if u have 2 weeks in advance to build it up why dont u do it right now

    • Da Mezzikan

      Oh chit! Did teddy just dare you?

  • Timbo

    I don’t want to sound like a cynical fucker and I’m certainly not trying to detract from your blogging skills (the AG interviews were awesome, the album itself not so), but I have a question.

    Are you planning to write 24 blogs in 24 hours or just post them? If it’s the latter, it’s no challenge – you could be tapping them shits out now (pause) and loading them on the day. If you’re actually planning to write each one during the hour before posting it, how do we know that? What’s stopping you from cheating us YN, just like those bastards at Scratch did with the Detox cover that time? (I hold a grudge like Sarah Michelle Gellar).

    And given that many of your blogs are audio drops, will all 24 be ‘proper’ blogs – ie. several paragraphs of copy? Damn, so many questions. At least you have my attention. Ha!

  • nappy_pappy

    wow some ppl are never happy… “its not hard to post 24 blogs” where the fuck are your blogs? lmao… if its not hard why u on here commenting u should have ur own blog pussy stfu let the man do his thing

  • EReal

    Please dont post 24 blogs.

    Fake ass wanna be Dre, what “MEDIA EMPIRE”. LOL, a little out of proportion dontcha think?

    Oh, and why you shoutin PH? Cause he bodies you every time you post? Lmao, not a good look Elliot. SOHH Reckless needs a job, says she’ll give you a blowski since she stays with Eskays whole cock n balls down her throat for 24 / 7 / fuckin 365.

    1 hunned.

    >> YN goes in: Next Sat Dec 22 12 noon til Sun Dec 23 12 noon. 24 blogs in 24 hours.

    I was gonna ask when this was coming… but can’t you just prepare them in advance and queue them to drop in an orderly manner, especially considering the nature of your posts.

    are you going off the dome? like, just posting whatever you think of in that hour, or are you preparing your material

    are you gonna be in the comments like Billy X. Sunday to prove you’re really awake or are you gonna ghostride the post

    enough questions from me, good luck

  • Sawed Off Shottie

    That aint nothin, content is what counts and with that nahright & icedotcom r the 2 blogs that got it on lock

  • http://www.myspace.com/donnygoines Donny Goines

    Im sorry YN I gotta agree with Teddy on this one lol. Shit I got my own blog and got weeks done in advance already, so 24 blogs in 24 on the 22nd dont cut it man…..

    Now if you were to drop the shit today or something, Kudos too you homie. But come onnnnnnnnn lol

    I got love for ya, but wheres the challenge in that that????

    • PURPLE HULK

  • http://www.myspace.com/donnygoines Donny Goines

    And I need my Show and Prove article man lol!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Much love.

  • no one cares about you so stop acting like your shit don’t stink

    your the most arrogant cocky nobody on the planet, what the fuck makes you think the world revolves around you ? o my god you weren’t named one of the top 5 writers in hip-hop how can the world continue to spin on it’s axis with these types of injustices going on across the globe, Forget about the jena 6, who cares about kid’s shooting up malls, or baseball players taking steriods let’s everyone stop what we are doing and make sure this insecure bum YN gets the credit he thinks he deserves, what type of crack he must be smoking to reach that conclusion ? I don’t know but like the homie Ghostface says whatever whatever whatever

    YN I got love for ya, but you don’t belong on that list. You post too sporadically. You’ll do you’ll 24 I’m sure, but then disappear for like a month (Cuz you gota “empire” to run, but disappear nonetheless) and come back nothing but breaks. Yeah I love the breaks and their all good, but it’s not like you actually get the pen game popping and say something about it. Majority of the posts where you do write play like the samples themselves; short but sweet.

    “The psycho Purple Hulk can rejoice.”
    ^^^Lol. Man, just about every blogger here has taken a shot at him on a post. I’m surprised YN actually took it there (He always seemed a cut above the ad hominem tactics a la Billy X), I guess you really are getting down in the dirt with this one. As for Hulk himself, I’m glad you called him what he really is: a psycho. But then again it’s amazing how many shoutouts hating can get you, word to Bol.

  • N.O. 4 life

    i doubt that 10 outta those 24 are interesting

  • Gooch

    Why would it matter if he wrote them in advance? Does Lil Wayne need to have recorded every song on his mixtape 5 minutes prior to the shit dropping? It’s called work. You put it in, then let it out for the world to experience.

  • lukee lefty

    its cause you dont do shock post’s….you gotta get on some stabbing babies, Pimp C was an undercover fag, 911 neva happened, Katrina was a great thing, i hate Hov, 50, and Pharrell and Kanye are gay, i lissen to bullshit underground shit to be cool….half the niggaz that comment on Bol’s shit are there juss to call him a fag….you have to encourage anger and hate to be number 1.

  • Hannah Smith

    “Who hipped you to their RS cover?”

    Er, Rolling Stone magazine maybe?

    News flash: Leaf falls from tree in Brooklyn; YN attempts to take credit for it.

  • Hannah Smith

    “i doubt that 10 outta those 24 are interesting”

    Haha, make that 10 more like ‘one’. Why on earth would anyone want to read 24 blogs by any one person in 24 hours anyway? Forget crack – the internet will rot your mind, make you delusional and do some really stupid shit.

  • JESUS

    YN IS MY DADDY

  • STop

    Your gay, a homo…none of those people mentioned actually “write”…so sad that hip hop journalism is truly dead. thanks YN for contibuting to that…

    Am I the only one shocked to see Purple Hulk not comment yet?

    • PURPLE HULK

      I JUST COMMENTED

      IM SURPRISED NOONE ELSE EVEN TRIED TO HOLD THIS GUY ACCOUNTABLE FOR WHAT CAME OUT OF HIS MOUTH, ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS.
      MY HARD WORK FINALLY PAID OFF.

      IM STILL GOING TO GET THE MOST 1STS.

    I almost wrote a effed up comment on here last night, after hitting the club, getting gloriously throwed and feeling extra e-gully… I chilled, and I’m glad, because that shit probably would have looked ridiculous today. Cat could’ve embarrased his young self…

    I think that’s one of the things YN needs to be careful about if he’s really going to do the 24 the right way. If these are going to be real written blogs, dude is going to start wilding the fuck out by the halfway point. I can see that shit coming a mile away.

    If they’re all in sequence, and you can tell he’s doing it in real time (YouTube), it’s gonna be interesting as hell, and I’m sure it’ll be funny.

    I think it could be a good idea. I’ll check for it.

    FINALLY YOU AGREE TO DO WHAT YOU SAID WHAT YOU WERE GONNA DO SO LONG AGO
