I’ll say it:

Common shut it down.

first off — i shouldn’t even be writing about this.  i really shouldn’t.  im feeling like jim ross right now, hi to the.  no cowboy hat.  onward.

curtis said “f*** jimmy iovine.”  that’s old news.  he’s from 134th st.

the new news is that curtis speaks on “the bet” and how it was planned to generate media hype for both albums and cement sept 11 as a memorable release date to even the most casual music listeners.  obviously.  letter time.

dear curtis,

i think “the bet” was the best thing you could have possibly done (especially out of desperation) for decent marketing and promotion of your new album.  80% of your media audience doesn’t understand what exactly your commentary created for you.  and in reality, you’re the underdog in this situation, going against a competitor who’s promotion was flawless (you had to have seen what the little things did — the entourage cameo and “good life” snippet?  those “shades”?).  why not soak up a little bit of that shine?  i get it.  i see you curt!!

lowsky though brosky, you’re already defending your loss by saying def jam will buy out records themselves if the sales don’t match up after the first few days.  that’s not strategy, that’s a career-insurance policy.

just keep it real, curt.  im not hatin, im just sayin.

your #1 wanksta,

dear fantasia,

low key – i kindof like ‘when i see u’ because its humbly written, and ive seen the video over twenty times on mtv jams.

but honestly, i just can’t stop thinking about how you look like a ninja turtle.

just sayin’.

later dude,
