I think its time to get out of the mixtape game. These days its not even possible to drop a cd without getting a phone call from an artist or label asking why did you put this out or where did you get that from. Where is the excitement of releasing a new record from your favorite artist when I got to worry and hear about lawsuits coming down orÂ RIAA raids for playing an exclusive record.
IfÂ I decided to call it quits with “The Empire”, I wonder if IÂ will be remembered? Some people credit me with the whole Lil Wayne explosion with my Drought Is Over series. I think that’s whatÂ branded me the most.Â When I look back on it, was I doing something to help or did I just cause problems? I just feel like I took a opportunity that came across to me and jumped on it. I never expected it to get the cult following it has now.Â InÂ the back of mind I hope that one day, Wayne would have reached out and acknowledged what I did for him and maybe want to do a official project with me, but I don’t think that day will come anytime soon. SO whether its appreciated or not, I still continue to drop exclusives.
2010 is here, and Â I’m already working on the much awaited drought is over 7, which should be out any day. It’sÂ shaping up to be the best tape yet.Â For the first time ever,Â I’ve aligned myself withÂ one of theÂ biggest movements in Atlanta, Â Duct Tape Ent. MyÂ main focus is really helping them to grow.Â Â Alley Boy who recently signed to Atlantic Records has a buzz that is growing. Just expect a lot of new innovated stuff coming from me this year.
I ain’t quiting this shit I love it so 2010 expect to keep hearing “If you don’t hear these drops it is not a true exclusive!!”
