I Wanna Kill A Milli…

I woke up this morning, I woke up this morning, got mad as a muthafucka, mad as a muthafucka…”

For those that don’t know, that’s my take on a song off Killer Mike’s new BANGIN ASS album, I Pledge Allegiance to the Grind II (cop that, cop that). But anyway, I really did wake up this morning and got mad as a muthafucka to see yet another MC gettin on the “A Milli” track.

The culprit this time was my man Red Cafe. No disrespect to the homie, but are you serious? At this point, having any parts of that beat for a freestyle is a moot point. There’s no reason to, the shit is tired and cliché. There have been so many damn “A Milli” freestyles that I stopped listening–and even caring for that matter–a loooooong time ago. The only one that truly caught my attention was Jay-Z’s “A Billi” and that was A Wizzi of My Tizzi. (Translation: Shit sucked).

But you know shit is out of hand when even R&B cats like Chris Brown, R. Kelly and Ne-Yo (when does the year of the gentleman actually begin?) get on the beat and TRY to rap. That’s like when your grandparents started saying, “Fa shizzle.” That’s when you know it’s time to just leave that shit alone.

So on behalf of hip-hop and your own dignity, MCs please stop freestyling over that beat.

ArmyAns

PS
Congrats to the homie Bangladesh for the track, but I don’t even see why everyone is going so goo-goo gah-gah over it in the first place. Or maybe that’s just me.

  • G-MAN

    Someone listen and shut the beat down for good.

    • Deez Nutz

      Can’t wait to hear McCain on “A Milli”

  • AZ40

    They go crazy b/c the babbling master(Lil Wayne) rapped on it and by a brainwashed mentality whatever he does is cool…You know kissing men, shooting yourself, sagging your tight ass jeans etc.

    • esco

      you couldnt be anymore rite. its like these radio stations are hypnotist and all these fools play hypnotism. and weezy aint the best rapper alive

  • Hold Tight The UK Garage And Grime… UK I Rep Thats Me When I Rhyme!

    Real talk

    There are so many better beats out there, even on the Carter III (which i do hate)

    Mr. Carter beat is hot… Wale got it right!

  • http://www.incilin.blogspot.com Incilin

    Co-sign, Co-sign, Co-sign. Defy kept it 100 on this one. And your right, the beat really isn’t that serious. And the funniest thing is, no one really owns that beat. I’ve yet to hear someone get on it and just destroy it. The beat always ends up drowning out the verses.

    • http://manibeensayin.blogspot.com The Doc

      Cory Gunz, pimp. Listen again. He completely shat on this beat. Wayne was so scared of young gunna’s verse, he completely scrapped plans to include him on the album. That’s what makes me not be able to listen to anybody else’s version. Cory Gunz went apeshite on that beat.

  • major

    yall niggas crazy. That beat is THAT hot. It is the equivalent to grindin by the clipse. Its a hard ass beat, no music, just drums and shit. Matter fact A Millie and Grindin are the best beats to freestyle over. EVER!!

    Having said that. Its time to retire that beat, at least for now. Niggas kinda overdid it. lol

  • bighorse

    Ne yo looks gay ass hell on that picture.

  • whatsgoodmtl

    co-sign its gettin ridiculus beside cory gunz killed that shit

  • K0ld

    Beat was hot at FIRST but now, it’s getting a little tired. Just a little over-saturated. But, what can ya do? Even my boy likes the shit. It’s a good freestyling beat but the constant A Milli through the entire song makes me wanna turn it off after the intro…

  • Brodie

    i was tired of it too until i heard killer mike rip this joint this morning. After Killer gets on, there’s no need for anybody else to spit on it (nhjic).
    check it out at http://www.therezidue.com

  • Jerod

    It’s Wayne’s beat, and so far he’s the only one to to make an impression on it. His first version and the “freemix” are awesome.

  • Pierzy

    Jadakiss rocked it almost immediately and I personally thought Jay’s take was hot. He finally dropped the whisper flow and went back to spittin. Maybe it wasn’t “A Million And One…” but it wasn’t “Show Me What Ya Got” either

  • the r

    i fully agree, rap’s new generation has no taste for good music now. Milli is garbage. Whoever said this was similar to Grindin is a certified retard…hip hop ent dead but on life support.

  • $TUCKFRESH

    STOP HATEIN YOU BULLSHIT FUCK BOY GAY ASS CLOWNS!! A MILLI A MILLI A MILLI!!!!!!

  • that guy

    co-fucking-sign. i’m tired of that shit and the whole, Auto-tune craze. niggas is hip-hopneed to stop following and do they’re own thing.

  • DETROIT

    cosign….but, i think it would be cool for some dance hall cats to jump on that beat….where’s buju?

  • The Invisible Glass

    To you’re feeling Killer Mike’s album….but you dissed Jay-Z, swallow a knife please

    • ArmyAns (The Other Music Guy)

      Yes, Killer Mike’s album (you know, a collection of songs) is a banger. I heard it have you? And ONE Jay-Z’s freestyle (you know, a couple minutes of rapping) was dissed. I didn’t compare the men or their catalogues.

      Thanx for the knife though, i’ll add it to my collection

  • DAJ

    I thought Corey Gunz killed it on the original…
    Is that why he’s missing from the album???

  • markeith

    i think for people to stop this beat from being used em should jump on this

  • chad bro chill

    ive hated the world ever since i heard tht song by lil wayne

  • http://www.myspace.com/alsween AlSween

    this is the generation of followers. using autotune, making a billion crank songs past when it became corny to crank song listeners, and now freestyling over a milli. followers are ridiculous these days. we understand that you artists want to be succesful but trying to piggy back off of everything that catches on is not the way. black people supposed to set trends and not follow. even doing techno and house music. now we are following everybody else. FAIL!

  • http://www.myspace.com/geranimotv geranimo

    2007= ‘Crank Dat’
    2008= ‘A Milli’

    • http://www.rockthedub.com khal

      really dont see the correlation… i dont remember hearing mad different mc’s hoppin on crank dat, nor is a milli lil wayne’s lead single.

      you thinking both beats/songs are annoying is one thing, but crank dat does not equal a milli.

      lil mama, ‘kiss, jay-z and cassidy merked a milli.

  • yoprince

    the beat is hard… i’m glad rappers/ non-rappers are spazzing/ trying to spazz on it..

    • markeith

      i think royce da 5’9″ should hop on it to silence it he’ll do justice

      check his track record he’s spazz happy

  • master cheef

    i was sick of that shit the first time i heard it. amilli amilli amilli amilli amilli. goddamn, that’s annoying.

  • solo

    IMAGINE IF LIL WAYNES NAME WAS A DICK…..that beat is ok but niggaz need to chill with all this hatin’…….niggaz gon die with weezy dick in they mouth…..PIMP

  • so Southern

    SHiiiit…speaking off Killer Mike he Killed it…now pleeze no more re mixes

    the r says:

    I meant the beat retard. Not the song.

  • http://www.xxlmag.com/?p=22642 MrPresident916

    Corey Gunz did go off.. BUT.. i hate ta say it Lil Mama went off on that track!! i didnt even kno she had that in her..

  • Rizob

    The Wayne Hate is pretty strong today. it is what it is. C3 is not the second coming of Jesus, but it is a good album. “A Milli” is a good beat, and since everything dude touches blows up, its only common sense for that particular beat to blow up. Has it been over done? Yes, but its pretty amusing right now so i hope it keeps going.

  • Ski

    I’m going to have to disagree I personally love the track, it’s not a classic by any means but it’s still a hot track.

  • HULK

    That beat goes HARD…. stop tha hatin’

  • http://www.fullblastradio.podomatic.com osharp

    you know what the best part is? NOBODY IS MAKING ANY OF YOU LISTEN TO ANY OF THE TRACKS YOU DON’T LIKE. sheesh!

    • Rizob

      CO-SIGN!!!! the only reason they listen to it is because its a Wayne track, They hate the guy, but anything associated with him they gotta listen just to hate some more….its kinda sad if you think about it.

  • nellz

    every year theres a beat that everyone feels the must rap over…that being said…its a hot beat…and sounds even better w/ a live band.

  • eLi pOrTeR

    THE GREATEST TRICK THE DEVIL EVER PULLED, WAS CONVINCING THE WORLD THAT WAYNE IS THE GREATEST RAPPER ALIVE AND C3 IS A CLASSIC! -HIPhOP

    • Rizob

      dude, how many days are you gonna post that. its not cool, its worn out, its done. find something else to add to the discussion besides your blind hatred.

      • eLi pOrTeR

          oh, damn. i thought that was fresh, eli.

  • http://myspace.com/thetruebonanza Bonanza

    The beat, to me, is average at best. It’s just “A Milli” said dozens of times.

    Yes, I too, am tired of the beat. Cosigning with the author.

  • young jopey

    bunch of putos r&B jotos

    props 2to the

    North side Cali

  • http://www.myspace.com/alsween AlSween

    nah ppl ain’t on it cause of wayne. they on it cause Shondrae makes dope beats. But it’s still tired and lame after you see 10 people in front of you record on top then you think you gonna do something better. Everyone who have hopped on it used the exact same flow. that’s what’s even more annoying.

  • solo

    for example…..eli pOrTeR has that “weezydickndamoufsyndrome”. niggas say they dont like or care for weezy music but they always got sumtin to say. so obviously u listening… u took ur time to buy or d’load it. i dont like 50…. i cant tell u shit he did since get rich or die trying…. when u dont like sum1 or their craft STOP FUCKING LISTENING…..ITS SIMPLE

    • eLi pOrTeR

      Better example….Solo and Rizob has “eLidickndamoufsyndrome” and they can’t read or comprehend for shyt… I Never said I didnt like Weezy or C3 for that matter… The statement infers that A)Weezy is not the best rapper alive and B) C3 is not A classic…Both statements I personally believe… you young faggots get ur panties in a bunch because dudes have their own opinions and dont believe the hype and or agree with you…being in the top 100 aint a bad place for weezy considering there are a million rappers…. by the way.. you have just been P3wnd!!! – I’m da bess mayne I deed it!- eLi

      • nellz

        nope…doesnt have anything to do with age…everyone is entitled to their opinions….but to go in every single blog/banger that has anything to do with wayne and continuously comment negatively is hatred..

      • mixyezpitlik

        No homo, but i’d give my left nut to hear the real Eli Porter in a rap battle with L’il Wayne. Lol, EP handin’ out another L on Weezy.

        “You like Rosie O’Donnell at a bisexual Bible College.” lololol

  • SlickNick

    i agree… theres so many A Milli remixed over the net…

    i like the Lil Wayne one on Tha Carter III…
    nothing else…

  • http://www.myspace.com/omegaprepboy SBA

    the beat aint really shit. all someone needs is the sample he used, some 808, claps and thats it. Gimme five minutes and i could make it on FL Studio

    • AlSween

      it’s easy to copy. but not easy to make from scratch. from the sound design to the intricacy of the rhythm. creating, not just playing it. just technically using an 808 kick, 808 snare, a vocal sample, and a 2nd snare is not enough to make the beat as good or better. just because stuff is simple doesn’t mean it took little thought.

  • Ciel

    “mad rappers look on the bright side, i sold 1.5 hip hop is alive”
    hip hop not dead bitches quit hatin’ on the nigga he killin tracks

    dont any of you guys go clubbin to this song or smoke mad blunts while listening to wayne
    smoke somethin bitches!!

    YOUNG MULA BABY

  • THAT BOY NOAH

    i think you have to much time in your hands.i only heard the weezy one.

  • ELI PORT”HOE”

    C3 MAY NOT BE A CLASSIC BUT ITS BETTER THAN 99% OF THE LATEST RAP ALBUMS TO HIT THE SHELF. ITS BITCHES LIKE U THAT GET FOUND LEAKING. BEING IN THE TOP 100 IS GOOD BUT BEING THE TOP RAPPER IS SAYING THE HE IS… AT LEAST FOR NOW, “THE BEST RAPPER ALIVE.” TELL ME IM LYING…..

  • az$$rugerman

    THat Milli Beat is old & crusty like ur Grandmom’s thong homie>>> played out… shit dnt bump no more

    co-sign 4real

  • http://www.xxlmag.com 615banga

    i think the song should be put away after Ludacris does a freestyle over it

  • REAL TALK 08

    A Milli vanilli…lol Lil’ wayne is too mainstream,and now,everybody ready to hate…oh dat Ne-Yo pick is super homo!..dat nigga got glossy lips…eat a dick RNB queers…no more a milli or a billi..kill dat shyt!

  • rekboogie

    Muthafucka IM illllllll!

  • Brey the Gemini

    This beat was bodied by Jay and no one else needs to fuck with it.

    Wayne’s version sucked and excluding Jay’s version (maybe) so did everyone else’s

    ”There have been so many damn “A Milli” freestyles that I stopped listening–and even caring for that matter–a loooooong time ago.”

    I thought you stopped caring a long time ago…these bloggers are horrible.

  • Simple like ABC, 123

    Here is my list of rappers that I wanna hear rapping over “a millie” beat:

    1. Ludacris – He’s good of doing freestyle.

    2. Slim Thug – I think his flow and voice match with the beat.

    3. Project Pat – You know, for each beat he always changes his style of rapping but at the same time he still maintain his unique flow.

    4. Andre 3000 – Well, is Andre 3000, he make classic song just for drop a single verse.

    Bonus: Eli Porter – Imagine Eli Porter rapping over “A Millie” beat.

  • ATL = All Trannies Live

    I need to hear 2 Pac spit on the Milli verse!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • yoprince

    young dro, luda, nas should all go in.. fuck it.

  • Clever

    I think a M.C. defines his self when he bless the Beat. So thats Lil’Waynes beat. I think a M.C. should stop Jacking for beats. Ya’ll ain’t Ice Cube. Its been done, Create or Purchase your own Instrumental. Define yourself and stop riding on the Jocz of a Short Buzz. Ya Dig!

  • Mizz Nora

    SHUT THE FUCK UP ABOUT THE “A MILLI” RAP FROM NE-YO!!!!!!!!! AND THAT’S WHY WEZZY IS FEATURED ON HIS NEW CD SO TO THE ONES WHO ARE MAD AT WEEZY AND NE-YO, GO STRAIGHT TO HELL AND SHUT UP ABOUT THE “A MILLI” RAP BECAUSE ONE DAY YOU ARE GOING TO ASK NE-YO TO WRITE SONGS FOR U AND YALL WON’T LIKE IT IF SOMEONE WAS TALKING ABOUT U IF U WAS RAPPING OFF ONE OF WEEZY’S SONGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
