Hi !!

I agree with Face on the fact that white people are now controlling HipHop. I worked with Face when I was @ Virgin/Rap A Lot Records. Back n the 90 s, there were more Black Executives in the game that know what they were doing. I think today LA Reid is the only Black Executive left and he s a R&B dude. Remember when Nas said ” HipHop Is Dead ” a few years ago. I can go on and on.

Face likes to forget that when he was in charge of Def Jam South, he wanted to bring L’il Flip and Ludacris to the label. He made that announcement in Vibe. He signed Luda, but Flip saw what was going on behind the scenes and signed a deal with Sony. Face was mad at Flip ever since.

Face comes off as a hypocrite in this when he was doing the exact same thing when he had his position at Def Jam South. He was talking that garbage when he was eatin’ good.
So why is he talking it now?
