AllHipHop.com: What you think about Hip-Hop in
general not taking any risks?
BD: I mean trends is dope, but it got to be something
that really means something. Like who really cares, I was just telling a homie
the other day: I got a lot of respect for B.I.G., always had a lot of respect
for B.I.G. hes a good dude. B.I.G. brought us Fasache. After
a year had died out, the people that was buying [it], was dudes and females
that wanted to the clubs and flash and show chicks that they had a $600 sweater
on and the year was all over. But realize that $600 for a sweater is a lot of
money. That was a lot of money. Ive been making money all my life and
Ive never paid $600 for a sweater, thats not me. It aint going
to happen. For one, I dont want to look like you. For two, I got these
kids at the house, what the f**k I look like with a $600 sweater on that sh*t?
Dont make sense. We continue to do it our way, we do it for the street.
Not only the street but we do it for other people who dont know how it
is in the street. The street dont go nowhere, my father was there, God
bless him, my brothers, god bless them, all the other homies god bless them,
whatever, I was there, I just try to prevent my kid form going there but its
still going to be there. The street will never die.
AllHipHop.com: What made you guys tour with Pharaoh
Monche and Scratch?
BD: You ever seen Pharaoh rock? Pharaoh rocks, gets down. Scratch, you ever
seen Scratch rock? We just want to make good music. And tour with people that
really down for it, that go out there and give it their all, even if their all
aint banging, you still give it your all. Like dont come on the
stage, you not coming on the stage all dolled up and sh*t, this is Hip-Hop,
and this is the bottom, and thats how you got to bring it, you got to
give all your effort. And I know that Scratch and Pharaoh do that. So thats
why we ride with them.
AllHipHop.com: What about the Indie route, do
you guys think youll take that route?
BD: It can be Turkey and Cheese Records, it doesnt
even matter. As long as I can get to where I need it to be, and I need it to
be global. It dont make a difference. We can work something out right
now. I got the burner at the crib, we go out and burn a thousand copies, ship
them s**ts out, whatever, as long as it can get there.
AllHipHop.com: Hows Teflon [crew member]?
BD: Tuff chilling, I was listening to some joints,
like two, three days ago.
AllHipHop.com: He coming out again?
BD: Yeah. He f**king with Black ass Def Jam,
AllHipHop.com: What do you mean?
BD: I dont know. Thats wack ass Def
Jam. Tef been signed to Def Jam for like two years though. And Tef got smokers
though, smokers, see they dont know Def Jam personally. I aint afraid
to say it, I dont give a f**k whos who. Ill stomp a n***a
the f**k out. So like them fa**ots at Def Jam, them is not, like were
not friends at all. Like I dont want to have no meeting with none of yall
none of that, dont act like we cool none of that, lets just act,
a spade is a spade. F**ker you dont like me, and I dont like you,
thats it. I dont try to stop.
AllHipHop.com: How come you didnt like
BD: You know what, and this is any label thats
like this, its not just them, but you take Onyx, Boss, everybody over
there, even Ja Rule now, major millions, now you cant pick up the phone
fool. Cause their s**t aint smoking no more, I dont like that s**t.
This wavy bastard should be stabbed. Stabbed, Im talking about in the
back and ripped down to their ass. All of them, I dont care who the f**k
it is. Any disloyal n***a I dont f**k with them. So thats why I
dont like them.
AllHipHop.com: How are things with the Roc?
BD: Roc-A-Fella is good; I mean you know the
history on them. They know how to go get it, they put your music where it need
to be, thats all I can ask them for. I dont ask for nothing else.
AllHipHop.com: Whats been the hold up?
BD: Man what else? You got to be comfortable.
You got to really be so comfortable that its so comfortable with talking
about the deal. So it doesnt really get comfortable with it. Like as of
right now, theres no other artist on Roc-A-Fella on the M.O.P. album.
AllHipHop.com: Not even that Jay-Z joint [Throw
It In The Air]?
BD: No, well thats it. But that s**t probably
wont make the album. Hopefully. I didnt like the song. Not because
Jay is on it, just because of the tempo on the song, I didnt like the
song. They good at what they do, and like every time I get the question, So,
hows Roc-A-Fella treating you? We dont know, we havent
put an album out yet, dont ask me that. As a person, I think Dame is a
good business man you cant front on him. He got out and did it. Biggs,
real good dude, Jada, homie from back in the day, always good to work with him.
But as far as the M.O.P. album coming out on Roc-A-Fella, I dont know
AllHipHop.com: I guess some people have heard
Fame saying things on mixtapes.
BD: Like what?
AllHipHop.com: On the song lyrics about your
album not coming out yet
BD: Oh yeah, but if we was mad, wed go
up there and do it. Like we not b*tching. And Im sure everybody knows
that, we not b***hes, well go up there and do it. The three of us, we
dont need no whole gang of us well go up there and well [ride]til
we fall. So if it was something like that, like I wouldnt sit and talk
to this man and act like it wasnt a problem if it was a problem. Anything
that I got to say at Roc-A-Fella about my project, Ill say it to them.
We always come through, its never no loud talking, its never was no beef
or nothing like that.
