Young Buck - You Don't Know Me (The Taped Conversation)


I'm sure that everyone has heard the taped conversation between Young Buck and 50 Cent within the past 24-48 hours where the big sis (nuna), Miss Info first broke the news. With the release of the tapes, you knew that Buck had to retaliate. He does so in a track called You Don't Know Me or The Taped Conversation aka the 50 Cent diss. Thanks to Raindrop Hustla bringin to light that the beat that Buck rides over was produced by Seattle's own Black & Brown Inc. of Sportn' Life Records. In the words of Nphared, Young Buck is "not afraid to fcuk with Seattle producers." Great look for the town. Click here to listen and be sure to stop by Black & Brown's MySpace as well as Sportn' Life's.

Fcuk Hip-Hop Cops!


NYPD sure is dirty. You wonder why they say "fcuk police!" Dude pulls out a strap in front of a large group of people in public backstage at the Hot 97 Summer Jam. He fails to identify himself as law enforcement and plays it of as if he's just taking pictures in his failed attempt to get intelligence. What he really should be doin is gettin some intelligence for himself first and foremost. I'm sure the chief and whole NYPD aren't gonna be too happy 'bout this guy. Definitely not a good look! Bitchassness at its greatest!
