  • Victor Cruz Close to Signing Entertainment Management Deal with Jay-Z

    http://www.giants101.com/2012/11/15/...al-with-jay-z/

    It's been no secret that New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz and star hip hop artist Jay-Z are friends away from the football field, but the two are now taking things to a new level with an entertainment management deal that will give Jay-Z control over securing entertainment deals for Cruz, as well as helping him grow his non-football resume. It may also include Cruz's own rap album somewhere down the line.

    Oh boy...

    Thatís why weíre here to sing, football.
    Sunday in the snow, refereeís whistle blows
    Weíve been warriors toe-to-toe, football.

    For Old Timers, do you remember the names?
    Like Bronco Nagurski and Nightrain Lane,
    Bulldog Turner, my man Sam Huff
    In the snow and mud, they were still real tough.
    Crazylegs Hirsch and remember Raymond Berry?
    Ask me if they hit hard and Iíll say ďVery!Ē
    Paul Christian, Buddy Young, Lenny Moore
    Itís them I adore, they seem to always score.
    Ed Sprinkle, defensive end for those years
    Gene ďBig DaddyĒ Lipscomb was the man to fear!
    You had Steven Van Buren and Otto Graham
    Johnny Unitas had the arm of a Superman!
    We had Charley Trippi and Gino Marchetti
    If youíre searching for a champion, theyíre your best bet!
    Wish I could quarterback like Johnny Lujack
    Or even Sid Luckman as a matter of fact.
    Do you remember Red Grange, the Galloping Ghost,
    He could do a ninety-five running coast-to-coast.
    You had Norm Van Brocklin, a real great player
    So slick with his moves that he could be mayor
    Y.A. Tittle, Ollie Matson, Hey!
    I remember all those guys, from back in the day.

    Itís the sport of Kings, better than Diamond Rings

    Football
    Football


    Hahahah

    U-G-L-Y,
    you ain't got no alibi,
    you ugly, you ugly.

    Loved that movie. Alot of faces in it. Snipes, Harrelson, Goldie Hawn, etc.

    Amen....this is basically my life motto....everything just seemed better in the 90's...even pop groups were better back then than now. Even shows like the Simpsons or movies lol. I don't know why but lately everything is so fake and corporations just ruined originality.

    I look at it like genetically modified foods. They mass produce stuff to feed the masses, but it's not as good for you as the organic natural way (aka real independant artists just being themselves)

    Agreed...the underground is more strong than ever....but again, in the 90's the mainstream was actually good. Now you have to go to the underground to find quality. Back in the 90's, the mainstream was artists like Tupac, Nas, Biggie, NWA.....the mainstream today is just a bunch of nonsense.

    I do agree however, that the kids that are young today will eventually grow up and hate whatever the world has to offer 10 years from now and remenise about the "good" days when rappers were throwing money in the air with half naked girls in the video....it's sad but that's the way life is, it's just a cycle

Wu tang 36 chambers, forever, Nas illmatic, tribe's low end theory, midnight marauders...Busta, DMX, Biggie, Gangstar... They all are prima donna rappers now. I saw a special on the real Rick Ross, from Cali, he claimed the dapper was a complete phony and used to be a rent a cop. Just uses his name and history of one of the biggest drug dealers, but never sold a dime. It's all BS now.
    Nas is still doing his thing. Life Is Good and Distant Relatives and even Untitled was hot. People just wanna dance nowadays instead of listening to lyrics. He can't rap about the projects and petty hustling no more because that's not his life. He does go down memory lane but he doesn't put on a front like he's the Kingpin of Queensbridge.

    Skulls and crossbones and death bandanas
    A liqueur store in every corner in Atlanta
    Cops riding round tossing niggas in the slammer
    Tell me whatís wrong i could really use some answers
    Nowadays everybody wants to be a rapper
    About 2 years ago everybody was a trapper
    Obviously money is what everybodyís after
    Cos slavery aint changed itís a modern day disaste
    r Now these are my words from me to you
    Everything you do from your shades to your shoes
    From your chains to your coupe came from the two
    Trust me i would know i was raised on the two
    Ok, now let me just get your attention
    Imma turn the tables so you donít get defensive
    Imma put my bull**** aside for a second
    Cos i cant be fake, cos God wont let me
    I used to wear a grill because it was the trend
    Not because i liked it, i just wanted to fit in
    Then i got Eastside tatted on my skin
    And i tried to get dreads but my hair was too big
    But i was lost, i ainít know who i was
    What else was there to do besides look like a thug
    So in my senior year at Columbia High I dropped out of High School when i got signed
    B.o.B was the name, i ainít like Bobby Ray cos i was ashamed
    But you can call me Bobby Ray from this day forth and I could give a damn about the fame and fortune
    Honestly i donít even listen to rap Cos when i turn the radio on, out comes crap
    And if you make good music thats ok,
    but On the radio that they donít play
    Its easy to see we created a beast
    Cos everybody wants to hear what they donít need
    And now all the rappers got a stoller to give you
    That bull**** music so they can continue to live
    The position that iím in is quite an interesting predicament i will admit
    But you can count on me cos iím refusing to give in
    Cos imma give you music cos we need it to exist, *****
    So imma play my guitar, rap about aliens and sing about star
    s Til you understand thatís what we are
    So we aint got to struggle no more so we donít starve
    I swear to God i love you with every bar
    We all got problems that need to be solved
    So while i got the mic imma speak my thoughts
    And imma keep it real til the day i fall

    The difference between the rap of yesteryear and today's rap is that rap was a form of poetry (or street poetry). They rapped about the struggle and growing up in rough situations, real life issues and political injustice.

    Today's rap talks about getting girls, money, cars, jewelry, smoking and drinking for entertainment.
    Not just rap either.
