Who the fuck are you to sit behind you safe little cubicle and criticize who we are and what we do? For more than 20 years. Southern Artists and fans have faithfully supported any and all hip hop that was offered. We accepetced everyone on their own merits, gave evryone a fair listen, and then spoke. In light of you comments and views, it occured to me that you haven’t given near as much open mindedness to our music as we have to yours. The reasons I say yours is that it doensn’t what type of music came out, we supported it, so we in no doubt supported whatever the fuck you listen to.

To think that all we know is what we do, or that we may know nothing at all is preposterous. If you’re a paying member of Soundscan, you can see that ALL MUSIC SELLS IN THE SOUTH! 5 percenter? Bought it. Backpackers? Bought it. Black power, Wu-Tang, horrorcore, need I say more? Meanwhile, after 25 years of unconditionally holdin down all forms of rap/hiphop music, as soon as we even try to join a club we bought and help build the clubhouse for, they wanna deny us access. Well guess what you Elks lodge habitatin, Masters in Augusta wanna-be, finger-pointin behind the bushes, throwin a rock and runnin ass nigga, I just thought I’d tell you to take whatever preconcieved notions you have built up in your air and watertight cranium AND STICK IT IN YO PUSSY! I guarentee you the TRUE FANS AND MAKERS OF HIP HOP JUST MIGHT DIFFER WITH YOU!

I know this because I am friends with Cool Herc, Grandmaster Caz, Melle Mel, Big Daddy Kane, Kool G Rap and other extremely well known originators and creators of this artform. The problem now is the act of causing division and dissention amongst the fans by people whom are not in the know. You see, YOU may not like Laffy Taffy or DFB or whoever, and you know what, that’s your GOD-given right. Hate all you want on the South, Southern rappers, or just Pimp C, since you brought him up. IT STILL WONT HELP WHOEVER YOU LIKE SELL SHIT! Talib Kweli: close friend of UGK. De La Soul: close friends of UGK. Kanye West, Common, Dead Prez, close firends of UGK. Jam Master Jay, 2 Pac, Biggie Smalls: ALL FUCKING FANS OF UGK, and I dont say this from second hand conversation. These people told me this from their own mouths, yet you would have people believe otherwise. They could learn to be openminded about the music the listened and the regions the music was popular in, so it should come at no surprise these people went further thatn the average artists. Whatever alterior motive you may have is trying to bring down the Southern rise, it won’t work. God kills hate with love.

Oh yeah, by the way, as far as your comments on my brother and his reason for incarceration, he pulled a gun on a group of people thrreatening him in a mall. Only the girl went back and told the police, that’s why it seems as if it was between only him and the girl. The problem is, misinformed people give misinformation and cause misfortune to the learing. I hate to call this the blind leading the blind, because by the look of your commment posts, they know what’s up. So instead of just going to New York, screaming and ranting in White Nigga’s office, I came to see you on your turf, because I’m no coward. I’m willing to come in your yard: care to come in mine? Right a rhyme, let;s see what you have the hip-hop community musically. Oh and make sure it’s Grammy-nominated when you do it, because mine was.

And while you’re at it ask Nas, Jay-Z, Papoose, Camron,, Russell Simmons, 50 Cent, Fat Joe, Chino XL, Self Scientific, Cyrpess ill, Snoop Dogg, Ludacris or anybody else in this industry you like if Pimp C is wack. I bet they bark on you louder than I want to. God forbid you’re in the wrong place and the wrong time like Pimp and have to spend 4 years of your life behind bars. You’re a black man, so fuck how educated and well read you are. You’ll ride just like Pimp, and you’ll be sorry about it, just like Pimp. The only difference: nobody’s gonna wear a fuckin t-shirt with yo face on it. Leave the South alone, becausse we’re just tryin to eat.

Quit bloggin and write a book if you got more goin on besides gossip and shootin slugs. Because after blogging has come and gone, and XXL is no longer on stands or online(which I would hate to see), UGK and our musical legacy will survive. Will your triflin rants sustain?

Fuck what you heard...I've been up on "Pocket Full Of Stones" see him on the side of my shit here, holding it down!

Cooley High!
~Plotting His Next Big Break-Eric Monte was a successful Hollywood writer before losing it all. Now, on a laptop in a shelter, he's got projects waiting to be pitched.
By John L. Mitchell, LA Times Staff Writer

taken from the story::
But almost from the start, Monte says, the "Good Times" plots were laced with stereotypical images and dialogue written by white writers who didn't understand black life.The show's stars, John Amos and the late Ester Rolle, fought with producers over the show's emphasis on their TV son, Jimmie Walker's character J.J., with his toothy grin, bug-eyed antics and trademark catchphrase: "DY-NO-MITE."

"The writers would prefer to put a chicken hat on J.J. and have him prance around saying 'DY-NO-MITE,' and that way they could waste a few minutes and not have to write meaningful dialogue," said Amos, who added that he was ultimately fired from the show for being too outspoken.Monte says he left the show when production began on 1975's "Cooley High," an autobiographical film he wrote in an attempt to dispel myths about growing up in the projects.

"I grew up in the Cabrini-Green housing project and I had one of the best times of my life, the most fun you can have while inhaling and exhaling," he says. In the final scene of his bittersweet tale about a group of high school friends coming of age, the lead character, Preach, stands at the edge of his best friend's open grave, twists the cap off a cheap bottle of wine and pours a few drops on the ground "for the dudes who ain't here." He takes a swig, bids farewell and heads to Hollywood to become a successful screenwriter.Todd Boyd, professor of critical studies at USC's School of Cinema and Television, calls "Cooley High" a "great movie."

"No one had seen anything like this imagination of black characters," he said. "It captured the black experience from a particular time in a way that very few other black films have done."A year later, "What's Happening!!," a sitcom loosely based on "Cooley High," aired on ABC. Monte was given credit as creator but says he received no money. He filed a lawsuit seeking $400 million from ABC, CBS and the producers of "Good Times," "The Jeffersons" and "What's Happening!!"

-Killah on the Road-Ghostface returns to the streets — and his own inner weirdo — on Fish Scale By HADLEY TOMICKI-LA

"The frenzied discipline of his staccato cadence and plaintive pleas held the raised-fist crowd at the House of Blues teetering on ecstatic explosion. A lover as much as a killah, Ghost packed the stage with girls from the audience but strangely all but ignored material from his new album. Admittedly, his live energy held us rapt in a way the new CD attempts but falls ever so slightly short of matching. ...........

Pressing play on Fish Scale launches a breakneck journey across the Verrazano Bridge, over the Hudson, Ghostface driving with a lead foot. Killah hits the streets hard, churning up cocaine blues and gunblast-echoing cityscapes with furious lyrical style. The album’s first half bum-rushes the heavy expectations placed on Ghostface’s sophomore output for Def Jam, under the new Jay-Z presidency. Die-hard fans buy almost anything sporting a yellow W, but the family-affair dirty funk of “Dogs of War” and the flute-laced “Underwater” should be astonishing enough to woo young ears from the unimaginative flows of the latest Young Jeezy. (In “Underwater,” for example, Ghost finds spiritual communion with scriptural scholars, as well as “some mermaids with Halle Berry haircuts” and “Spongebob in the Bentley coup, bangin’ the Isleys . . .”) "
