Audio Dope: G.O.O.D Music vs. Everybody


This last month has been a crazy one for the G.O.O.D Music camp! Starting with Pusha T’s amazing ‘DAYTONA’ album the label has been dropping albums (or EP’s depending who you ask) every Friday as a part of it’s resurrected ‘G.O.O.D Friday’ series!

But amongst all the new projects has also come plenty of shots from what seems to be everywhere! Pusha took aim at Drake on the track ‘Infrared’, from his ‘DAYTONA’ album, which did not sit well with Drake at all and continued what has always been a lengthly feud between Pusha and Cash Money/Young Money that started years before with King Push taking aim at Lil Wayne!

Drake came back 24 hours later with his ‘Duppy Freestyle’ which took aim at both Pusha and Kanye for lack of sales and ghostwriting! Pretty standard Drake diss record to be honest but it’s still not bad!

Drake – Duppy Freestyle

But Pusha don’t play! He came back strong with the personal as hell ‘The Story of Adidon’ which saw T murder Drizzy not just verbally but also on the artwork tip too! Hidden kids, blackface and label issues! OUCH!!! Add the fact that Drake has not responded to this (despite J. Prince’s claim that Drake supposedly had a diss record that would of ended Pusha and Ye but Prince advised him not to drop it after a phone call with Yeezy) this is a HUGE L for him to take (Meek Mill was certainly smiling somewhere lol)!

Pusha T – The Story of Adidon

Kanye also got it too from West Coast vet Daz Dillinger, after dropping his lukewarm ‘Ye’ album, in the form of ‘True To The Game Pt. 2’ which had Daz lyrically killing Yeezy, over Ice Cube’s ‘True To The Game’ instrumental, about his choice words about slavery and being a Trump supporter! Throw in some audio clips of Trump, and Ye on TMZ and this was a wrap!

Daz Dillinger – True To The Game Pt. 2

Lil Twist also dropped ‘Message 2 G.O.O.D Music’ as well but it was wak and doesn’t deserve a response but here it is anyway just for the purpose of the blog!

Lil Twist – Message 2 G.O.O.D Music

Interesting to see if anyone else fancies throwing anything else at the G.O.O.D Music camp (or affiliated projects that are dropping)! But until that happens let’s all look forward to the return of Nas (hopefully) this Friday!!!

On The Line: Hip-Hop & Mental Health


Today I’m stepping out of my usual position as blogger for the ‘Audio Dope’ section to post my first ‘On The Line’ piece! The subject of this post is one that hits close to home for me and brings together two huge parts of my life: Hip-Hop and Mental Health!

Hip-Hop’s relationship with mental health is an interesting one to me and as someone who has invested over half his life to the Hip-Hop culture, as an artist, MC, DJ, promoter, blogger and fan, and has suffered from mental health issues, personally and with family and friends, for about the same length of time so the subject is very personal to me.

Mental health issues, such as depression and high anxiety, have plagued me for years as well as a battle with alcohol and substance abuse, in my early to mid 20’s, but the one thing that balanced everything out for me was my love for Hip-Hop but with the exception of a few songs I’d never really seen a strong connection between Hip-Hop and Mental health.

Hip-Hop is very well known for it’s braggadocio, bottle popping, gun toting, drug pushing lyrics compared to being open and expressing your deepest and darkest feelings. While their are artists out there such as Joe Budden, Scarface, Charles Hamilton, Kid Cudi, Cage, R.A. The Rugged Man, Prodigy, Eminem, DMX and many more artists who have opened up about their battles with depression and mental health issues their is still a large percentage of rappers who choose to spit about the more care free aspects of life (even though, more than likely, those same artists probably wrestle with personal demons themselves).


Some artists like 2Pac, Drake and ,worst of all, Troy Ave., as prime examples, have even openly mocked illnesses such as Pac mocking Prodigy of Mobb Deep’s sickle cell, on 1996’s monster diss record ‘Hit ‘Em Up’, a disease Prodigy had openly said had caused him “physical and mental pain” (as heard on the emotional ‘You Can Never Feel My Pain’), Drake on ‘Two Birds, One Stone’ taking aim at Kid Cudi’s mental state even after Cudi checked himself into rehab for severe depression and Troy Ave., on his 2016 single ‘BadA$$’, calling late Pro Era member Capital Steez “Splat Man” and saying “Steez burning in hell” in reference to Steez’s 2012 suicide. This last example was all a part of a beef with Pro Era’s Joey Bada$$ over who wore the crown as New York’s #1 Independent Hip-Hop artist! Like really??? Very low blows indeed by two best selling, and respected artists in the industry (Troy doesn’t fall under best selling or respected in my opinion based on the above…sorry)!

Though mental health is a more discussed public topic nowadays I still feel Hip-Hop has a lot of growing up to do when it comes to the issue which after 40+ years is quite sad to say. Despite a new wave of artists, who have been given the tag of ‘Emo Rap’ popping up on Soundcloud (and the charts), talking about their ‘issues’ to me they come across more like moping teenagers having a moan about feeling ‘depressed’ because they’ve taken too many prescription drugs as opposed to people dealing with real depression which anyone can be hit with on any day. Not to necessarily say all modern day artists don’t speak on their real issues, some do (Logic I see you!), but the majority do come across more as attention seekers with very minor life problems, and to some extent, almost like a gimmick just to latch onto a niche audience.


As an artist myself I’ve found it difficult to speak openly on the issue, outside of music, as it’s not an easy subject to be open about, especially in Hip-Hop, but after reading and watching interviews with people like Joe Budden, Scarface, R.A. The Rugged Man and after seeing Styles P break down on the Breakfast Club, when discussing his daughters suicide through depression, it does make it easier to be more open to my own issues with mental health. I just hope that the Hip-Hop culture as a whole can take note and be a bit more open and honest on the subject as it’s been getting there slowly but, I feel, still has a long way to go.
