I don't dislike rappers or hip-hop or people who like it. I went to the Def Jam tour in Manchester in the '80s when rap was inspirational. Public Enemy were awesome. But it's all about status and bling now, and it doesn't say anything to me. -Noel Gallagher-

Still on cloud 9 and my inspiration will definitely be shooting through the roof for the rest of the year.The whole week i've been mentored 1 on 1 by the super talented DARNELL HODGES from L.A in the USA.He is the C.E.O of DLH MEDIA GROUP LLC which works with artists like Tyga,Big Sean,Justin Bieber,Nicki Minaj,Lil Twist,Bone Thugs N Harmony,K Mitchell and works with companies like Def Jam,YMCMB,Maybach Music Group,Universal Music and Slip N Slide Records.This happened because my new single 'Can't Stop This Feeling' reached no.1 on 2 of the top radio stations in USA and is continuing to be one of the most played tracks on RADIO AIRPLAY.com which is the biggest online radio station in the world and my song is already on 1021 plays in 2 months.DREAMS DO COME TRUE ONLY IF YOU BELIEVE AND WORK HARD

Who better to attend Talent Tonight's Rising Star Showcase at Prospect Park then Santos Garcia? About Santos Garcia Santos Garica is an A&R executive/manager with Compound Entertainment (Neyo's entertainment company). He is also owner of Sutter Music Group working with rising artist DKING. Bio New York City’s own Santos Garcia started his career at Def Jam Records as a marketing and street team promoter. In 2004, while still working at Def Jam he met Ne-Yo’s manager Tishawn Gayle. Respecting Santos’s hard work and loyalty to the label, he asked Santos to be a part of his new project serving as a Road Manager. This new project was "Ne-Yo" and Compound Entertainment a division of Universal Music Group. As Ne-Yo’s career blew up to super stardom, so did Santos’s position within Compound Entertainment. Over a course of ten years, Santos went from street team promotions to full blown music executive being a part of the tour management team, supervising and participating in all aspects of touring and ...

Wow... Here's some info about the Def Jam video game series, pertaining the gameplay and it's changes through out the series due to alternative developers! Def Jam's debut game is Def Jam: Vendetta! The publishers - EA, the developers - AKI Corporation & EA Canada. ( AKI Corp gave you WWF No Mercy and WCW/nWo Revenge, and many other wrestling games. ) ( EA Canada gave you Fifa Soccers, MVP Baseballs, Need For Speed: Underground 2, Marvel Nemesis, NBA Lives, NBA Streets, Fifa Streets, SSX series. ) Put these teams together and you get Vendetta. First came Vendetta, second came Def Jam: Fight For NY! Publisher - EA, developer - AKI Corp & EA Canada. Same companies, thus the same results, however this creation has far more evolved ( There's also Def Jam: FFNY The Takeover, which was basically PS2/Gamecube/Xbox FFNY ported to the psp, with a couple interesting new additions I found would be awesome in a new console installment! )! HOWEVER, such was all lost in Def Jam: Icon, which was next released! Instead o ...

Most people wish Morgan Freeman could narrate their lives, but I always wanted mine to be narrated by Maya Angelou. Sadly, that will never happen. Freshman year is what really turned me on to poetry, and while watching Def Jam slam poets on YouTube was great, it was Maya and Frost who really caught my attention, and opened up to me the beauty of words. I've never been much of a poet myself, but I try, and I know I wouldnt even be trying if it weren't for many of the greats, but mostly her. R.I.P. Maya Angelou, the caged bird is now truly free.

Rihanna is one of the most successful R&B stars of the last decade. A Barbados native who signed to Def Jam at just 17 years old, her profile soared on the success of her singles "SOS" and "Umbrella." She's since put out several huge hits, won a cascade of awards, and evolved from a teen pop star taking direction from her label into a self-possessed artist in her own right. "Disturbia" is a dark, gritty, minor-key dance track about anxiety and paranoia. It was chiefly written by Rihanna's then-boyfriend and notable woman-beating-violent *** felon Chris Brown, but don't hold that against it. The vocal track has a lot of clever vocoder touches and the beat has some fantastically layered hooks throughout. It charted to number 1 in the United States and remains one of Rihanna's signature songs.
died. I wonder if she regrets never doing the Def Jam Poetry slam?
The funniest comedy show in the land going 5yrs strong. Thursday it gets even funnier with Buckwild & (Def Jams own Howie Bell hosted by Stick.

I was able to get ahold of Chief Keef's notebook where he keeps his lyrics written down It seems that with all the mumbling noises, we couldnt understand him right. It turns out that his lyrics are different from what we think we hear. And for proof, these are his lyrics for "Macaroni Time" Yo, why is King Sosa so ill? That would be a unpardonable breach of confidence for me to reveal! He said "One of these days, all eyes would be on me when they look up in the sky and see the neon C" Rhymes inscribed on a nickel disk encased in glass with an ion beam for longevity For more then 10 centuries, impressions and memories the first time the machine inventor will mention me Chief Keef was a visionary indeed he believed light could travel in multiples of C The organic supercomputer that solved the mysteries of Clan Calusa with 2 blue metric rulers Liked Cool J, but thought Stephen J.

I found a Babbage's yesterday. It caught me off guard and I thought I stepped into a Time Machine. They were still selling PS2 games. So I bought a bunch of PS2 games for 75% off. Most expensive was about $3.38 and that was for a Naruto game. I found a copy of The Bible Game too. Still can't beat Fire Pro Wrestling Returns for 90 cents and a copy of Star Wars: Super Bombad Racing for 75 cents. I also bought about 12 other games but I forget what I got since they're all in bags still. They all came with cases and slipcovers, which was also pretty amazing. Also my phone's compass app didn't work in this Babbages. There was always a sound somewhere between harp music from Final Fantasy and the laughter of a child. There was a display of Dragonball Z figures and sometimes I thought I saw their mouths move, telling secrets. The man at the register smiled and there was a twinkle in his eye. On my way out, he handed me a copy of Def Jam Vendetta for the Xbox. That game never came out on the Xbox. "But i don't wa ...

What a mission to get the album in store! Tesco, Asda, Asda Living and Morrisons NOT stocking the new album... yet they are stocking Sam Smiths debut album. Rang through to my local HMV. We have one copy of the deluxe and 4 standards in store. I asked where are they displayed? They replied as it's a small stock delivery it's gone straight into the racking and not on the new release shelving!!! No wonder the album is struggling for a top 10 album position if a die hard fan can't find the album! So any casual purchaser is not going to know the album is out or see it in the new releases! She needs a live performance slot on one of the BGT finals to plug the album. C'mon def jam... Pull your finger out! Ahj gr!
Sooo... I just got a call from Def Jam! They want me to open a show for Lil Boosie and Future. And they're interested in signing me!

This is a quick-paced poem I wrote a few years back, def jam in mind, called the Devil's Dance: The devil dances, giggles and waves; resounding clatters, bleeding...smash. Rows of lights begin to wail, as man's last breath he must inhale. And while this Devil dance, wait, watch his heart leap at Fate. As man passes from this realm, the demon's rage shall take the helm. As machines beep, resist and whirl it seems spilt blood is now pumped a swirled...life is restored! And now the Devil won't dance. He just sits on his throne, heaving, pants. "Too bad men have machines to keep him alive, it seems I wait longer for souls and to collect I must strive. But lo, I am overjoyed to find that with new sciences comes less Praise, and God in mind..." So he sits and bids clock, until at last we are docked. With a lack of spirituality, we become his game, his slaves, His damned machine in all actuality...
If Def Jam releases a new game they have to add Solange. They have to!

Mike WiLL, Tavari$ High Type Beats and Gangsta Grillz, InTer$cope/Def Jam/ Tavarez Records your signed to them.
Def Jam records used to be such a cool record label until the East Coast/ West Coast thing 18 years ago, now I can't stand them. I love old school Hip Hop unwaveringly, but everything now is so unintelligent now and that's what it stems from.
Warren G really made a classic song, about him getting robbed and singlehandedly saved Def Jam records w/it
Island Def Jam is no more. Def Jam and Island Records are now separate entities

It just dawned on me that Snoop Dogg and Eminem are both over 40, while Dr. Dre is almost 50, while Ice T and Def Jam are both pushing 60... another 10 years or so, they should hold a reunion show. Snoop would be like "wave your walkers in the air, if y'all collecting Medicare!"

Major label/executive reshuffle at Universal Music Group with Def Jam, Island and Motown Records all now functioning as standalone labels, and the awkward label mash up "Island Def Jam" thankfully resigned to scrapheap.

Barry Weiss has stepped down, Steve Bartels will lead Def Jam, Ethiopia will front Motown and David Massey will stay on at Island.

But did you know that this was the first on Def Jam records just before it was on PartyTime Records. The Hip Hop division of Streetwise records. T La Rock was a DJ turned MC in the early 70's. Russell Simmons commented in a 1996 NY Times article "It's Yours" was Big, Big in the underground T(la Rock) started the trend and a new direction in Hip Hop. He used 40 letter words. He created a special poetry. LL Cool J was the second release on the label. He borrowed ideas and attitude from T.

Busta Rhyms & Big Tigger - You know now or some' I personally respect Busta though I'm not a fan I do listen to his music. This song just outlines Busta's career and you get to hear the man clear his name from all the rumours, he even talks about Def jam records. Hip Hop is not about saying what people can't hear nor understand so to be called the best but it's about saying what you want to say in a style and make it sound nice. If you hating on rappers like Busta and you haven't even sold a record! SUCK A *** ***

My top 20 Hip-Hop Label list are. 1. Def Jam Recordings. This is the house where Russel Simmons and Rick Rubin kicked the doors down with a help from Run-D.M.C. Artists like LL Cool J, Beastie Boys, Public Enemy, 3rd Bass, Slick Rick, Redman, Onyx, the list goes on and on. Def Jam changes the game forever. I'm not into the new music from Def Jam nowadays like Rihanna and the rest. 2. Death Row Records. Suge Knight was the center of controversy. Dre, Snoop, Tha Dogg Pound, Lady Of Rage, Nate Dogg and 2Pac were very dope as *** But the beginning of the end with The Row started with East/West beef, Dr. Dre's departure and 2Pac's tragic death in Las Vegas. 3. Bad Boy Records. Why would Sean Combs ain't paying his own artists from the Bad Boy roster. That's sad. Otherwise, Notorious B.I.G., Craig Mack and the rest were good except Diddy. He's a shiny suit freak with all that ad-libs in people's music. 4. Sugar Hill Records. Shout out to The Robinsons - Joe and Sylvia for opening the doors for The Sugarhill G . ...

Jadakiss and Styles P find themselves free agents and disgruntled by the Grammy upset with the Kendrick Lamar/Macklemore "Best Rap Album" upset. Talking to the Breakfast Club, Jadakiss and Styles P find themselves to be free agents for the first time in a while, after Def Jam was reluctant to give them their full support. Jadakiss also find himself angered at the outcome for "Best Rap Album," as many were when Kendrick Lamar's heralded album lost to Macklemore's. On the subject, Jadakiss says: "60/40, the white man still win," says Jadakiss . "Grammys ain’t Hip Hop. We they do the Hip Hop categories on the Grammy’s. Every nominee, only one or two are really Hip Hop." This is a sentiment shared by many. What do you think? Is Jadakiss on the money? Or is he being unfair?
It has been awhile since we've heard from Trinidad James, but today he's back with a new track titled Def Jam. This is from DJ Tephlon's F.Y.M. 10 mixtape. Listen to the track below.
Group members Prince Po and Pharoahe Monch began their career under the name Simply II Positive MCs. Originally, Po was the rapper and Pharoahe was a beatboxer, but after realizing his rhyming skill, Monch joined Po as MC. The duo caught the attention of Hip Hop producer Paul C, who produced a demo for the group in the late 1980s. They signed a record deal with a small record company in Queens named solid sound records. Two producers named Kevin Osborne and Neal Kelley produced two singles for the group. The first was "Memories of Love" in 1987 and the second was "South Side in Effect". In 1987, they released "Memories of Love"; however, it did not receive any radio play. During that time, Def Jam was considering signing the duo, which led to the group changing its name. In an interview with Halftimeonline.net, Monch stated. “We had shopped the demo to Russell Simmons at Def Jam through Bobbito García and we were hype on the name. We had a couple of offers but of course we wanted to sign with Def Jam. ...

ALEISTER CROWLEY, MUSIC, AND SEX HipHop Rap Music was created for minorities to band together in unity, rise against the system, expose evil forces, be creative, and to encourage spoken word poetry and thinking. The Elite saw it as a very dangerous weapon. Seeing the danger of the possible resistance to tyranny, they corrupted the whole industry and now use it as one of the main tools of tricking people to follow Satan and his Culture. FBI COINTELPRO helped carry out the process of the "niggerization" of Hip Hop. Now the HipHop Industry promotes Murder, Sex, Drugs, Drinking, Possessions, Money, and other things that should not be promoted or worshipped and constantly says the "N"(igger) word. Def Jam is one of HipHop's Biggest Record Labels owned by Satanists Russell Simmons who is obsessed with Yoga and Rick Rubin is also partial owner. Professor Griff was a member of one of Hip Hop's first Rap Groups and was and is a Spoken Word Poet and Lecturer. His group Public Enemy made songs like "Fight t ...
