Morning buzz;@chrisbrownofficial jamming to @bobby_shmurda “Hot Nigga”
Bobby Shmurda’s recent signing with Epic Records felt like an inevitability. Given the seeming ubiquity surrounding his viral hit “Hot N***a” and its corresponding Shmoney Dance Vine, those who feverishly follow the ins-and-outs of this rap game knew the young Brooklyn artist would be courted by the majors. Intergenerational endorsements and co-signs from Jay Z, Meek Mill, and Raekwon shone a spotlight on Shmurda that most rap publicists would sacrifice their firstborn over. Currently lacking a proper commercial release for “Hot N***a,” any hip-hop A&R had to at least see Shmurda’s short-term earnings potential via the download and ringtone marketplace.The ink on the contract having barely dried, some might be tempted to consider the signing Shmurda’s big win. Record deals are worth celebrating, though as Azalea Banks and others in similar predicaments can attest they often mark the beginning of one’s problems as opposed to the end. Even if Shmurda earned himself a six or seven figure advance with Epic, he’s still got to recoup that for the label. (Rock producer Steve Albini explicitly explained the uneven economics behind these deals over twenty years ago in his widely cited, must-read essay “The Problem With Music.”) As with the NBA draft, getting picked means it’s time to show and prove. Once everyone’s done shaking your hand, they’re wringing their own over how you’ll fare. #entertainment #bobbyschmurda #chrisbrown #music

Would you date a pursuing rapper ? An established rapper ? When surveyed females age 18-40 responded as such :
1. ‘Too many “groupies.” A rapper might not be faithful do to all the women that constantly approach them.
2. They are caught in their image and not their personal character.
3. They do not take advantage of their messaging platform.
4. They devalue women at times because the groupies go too hard and all women become toys/disposable to them. (Sounds like a personal story lol)
5. They are sl*ts.
6. Potheads/Drug users.
7. Selfish due to creativity. Things have to happen on their time.
8. Lack of reality: Incapable of knowing when/if they suck.
9. Lack of maturity.
