QUOTE OF THE DAY: ICE CUBE

“Today’s artists are caught up in Soundscans and stuff that record companies should be caught up in. So, now, if Akon or T-Pain is hitting, they trying to roll the f**kin talk box in the studios. Artists are under a lot of pressure, cause they just got two, three, four hundred thousand dollars to do a record. This is more money than anybody ever handed them. So they feel obligated to let people in the studio that they would never let in []

QUOTE OF THE DAY: JACKI-O

Everybody that signed to Poe Boy had gotten their advance money, but when it came time for me to get my advance, I had to f*ck for my advance. It was ten stacks and I had to f*ck for it. So naturally it wasn’t something that I’m proud of doing. And I don’t advise any female to get into no business – be it music or whatever – and get exploited like that.

But their racist attacks have gone way too far. Calling Michelle Obama ‘Barack’s baby mama’ – is that acceptable? Bill O’Reilly saying a ‘lynching party’ for Michelle Obama might be legit if she has the wrong political opinions. Is that acceptable? []
