Hawkins claims that it’s been six years since he’s received a royalty payment for any of the over 170 songs he contributed to the group’s catalogue, which began with appearances on their 1993 debut Enter The 36 Chambers. He also claims he hasn’t been receiving the two payments he’s entitled to every year from merch sales, or his share of the sale of Once Upon A Time In Shaolin, which was purchased last year for $2 million by Martin Shkreli.
Here we go again. I remember when U-God was angry years ago. This looks like the same. And that OUATIS is a Ringz album. Interesting.
A Dutch Hiphop site has a nice story about the epi Cappadonna verse on Winter Warz that just goes on & on. It is in Dutch. But it would suit you well to use some Google translate on this one to get the gist of the story.
You heard other raps before but kept waiting
For the Son of Song, I keep dancehalls strong
Beats never worthy of my cause, I prolong
Extravaganza, time sits still
No propaganda, be wary of the skill
As I bring forth the music, make love to your eardrum
Dedicated to rap nigga, beware of the fearsome
Lebanon Don, Malcolm X beat threat
CD massacre, murder to cassette
I blow the shop up, you ain’t seen nothing yet
One man ran, tryna get away from it
Put your bifocal on, watch me a-cometh
Into your chamber like Freddy enter dream
Discombumberate your technique and your scheme
Four course applause, like a black jack to dat
You’re stuck on stupid like I’m stuck on the map
Nowhere to go except next show bro
Entertaining motherfuckers can’t stop O
In battling, you don’t want me to start tattling
All up on the stage cause y’all snakes keep rattling
Bitch, you ain’t got nothing on the rich
Every other day my whole dress code switch
So just in case you wanna clock me like Sherry
All y’all crab bitches ain’t got to worry
Can’t get a nigga like Don dime a dozen
Even if I’m smoked out I can’t be scoped out
I’m too ill, I represent Park Hill
See my face on the twenty dollar bill
Cash it in, and get ten dollars back
The fat LP with Cappachino on the wax
Pass it in your thing, put valve up to twelve
Put all the other LPs back on the shelf
And smoke a blunt and dial 9-1-7
And you could get long dick hip-hop affection
I damage any MC who step in my direction
I’m Staten Island best son, fuck what you heard
Niggas still talking that shit is absurd
My repertoire, is U.S.S.R
P.L.O. style got thrown out the car
And ran over by the Method Man Jeep
Divine can’t define my style is so deep
Like pussy, my low cut fade stay bushy
Like a porcupine, I part backs like a spine
Gut you like a blunt and reconstruct your design
I know you want to diss me, but I can read your mind
Cause you weak in the knees like SWV
Tryna get a title like Wu Killa Bee
Kid change your habit, you know I’m friends with the Abbott
Me and RZA rhyme name printed in the tablet
Under vets, we paid our debts for mad years
Hibernate the sound and now we out like bears
In Born Power, born physically, power speaking
The truth in the song be the pro-black teaching
“Duel of the Iron Mic”
This might be my favorite track on the album. I like how I delivered on this one, and I love RZA’s beat. I remember writing to it and that it took me a while because I was trying different things. I remember being so happy after Ol’ Dirty [Bastard] blessed the track like he did. I love how the recording sounds too. When we perform this song live, the music gets real low for Deck’s part, and then it comes in real loud and it still always gets me hype. I also love the skit at the beginning. I just love that shit.
Adam Sandler films are so bad, even Sony hates them. Thank god we have Meth in this latest film doing the rounds. Giving interviews everywhere on a whole range of subjects. Including the current PR disaster that is Once Upon A Time In Shaolin. Apparently Meth does not like Ringz, or the handling of this album. Well who would, if this was proclaimed as your last group effort and you are not in the loop.
Be sure to listen/watch the whole interview. Quite some gems about Tupac, acting, B.I.G. and more.
Come on, man. I ainâ€™t gotta tell â€˜em. They caught in a trap right now, and I donâ€™t mean danger. Niggas is in the strip club throwing their money up and doing all types of Birdman shit. When we came up, we didnâ€™t grow up like that. We learned how to hustle and get money. You stack and plan the future aheadâ€”get your house, your car, your wife and start your family. Pass the jewel on. We grew up under those rules like the mobâ€¦the mafia.
Inspectah Deck stays true to his name.
