    coke boys is an awful movement…who ever wears the shirts, listens to the music or even likes french montana is moron and obviously can’t detect that the coke boys movement is an awkward branding disaster that no one is gonna be proud they liked once they are over 25 years old…srrsly…you gonna walk around with a coke boys shirt and be anyone respectable in society???

    • nothinlessdenSour

      BRA THATS THE PROBLEM…HALF THE TIME SOCIETY AINT GONNA RESPECT YOU ANYWAY…THERE IS A MILLION DIFFERENT MOVEMENTS THATS NOT RESPECTED BY SOCIETY…IF YOU DONT LIKE SOMETHING, DONT LISTEN TO OR WEAR IT..POINT BLANK .

    • johnblacksad

      wonder how the label let them run with that in the first place… i mean… Peedi Crack switched to Peedi Peedi… Killer Mike to Mike Bigga… the labels usually don’t play that sh!t… Coke Boys… smh… so wack

  • WOW!

    This is the deepest ‘chet posted in a while! $E$ type ‘chet!

    Good Looking iLLSEED!

    If I listened to Fake Montana & Diddy…..this ‘chet would definitely make me stop & rethink the message & my support of it!

  • Thank you for this. More and more people are waking up and not accepting the turn in direction music has taken. If I was in NY I would definitely be there protesting that. Change the message that is being fed to our youth. Its a lie of a lifestyle.

  • I agree, if we don’t like whats being promoted through hip-hop then we should protest….They need to start getting their shit together–For real.

    • harlemsown21

      The best protest would be not buying the music and boycotting the radio’s that promote that trash .. as long as we are letting this trash on the radio’s we lose

      • I understand that radio is a business…It starts with the artists and we should address the situation from where it starts.

      • >>Doesn’t buy music or listen to radio…so all I can do is talk ‘chet in the comments!

      • These bum a** so called Hip Hop fans ain’t buying music already so that won’t do anything… It’s because these leaches are always looking for an excuse not to buy music that the labels keep pushing “for the moment acts” to make a quick dollar instead a long term acts. Anybody can get in to the game now because record sales aren’t a factor anymore. In the 90’s and early 2000’s if you didn’t at least sell gold you would end up on the back of a milk carton. That was one of the biggest ways of keeping the garbage artists OUT! Now we have the most garbage artists ever and ignorance is at an all time high! At the end of the day, if you don’t at least buy the music you do like, shut the f*** up and take your medicine! Support real artists and the garbage ones will slowly disappear. Till then enjoy! LoL

    • Protest how?

      It’s not like we can “STOP” buying their records….I mean, when was the last time you bought one of Diddy’s musical offerings?

      • I haven’t bought anything from a rapper in a very long time…I do listen though just so I know what it is I am speaking about….For example…..I don’t even drink ciroc anymore…I drink bacardi because I like the taste of rum over vodka any day.

      • My “BEEF” with Diddy goes back to the CUNY incident & how he did the families…..haven’t supported since BIG.

      • Alf Capone

        it doesnt hurt that bacardi is about half the price either

      • I have yet to hear someone say that they like Ciroc because of the taste and what it how it effect them as an individual…Point is most people drink ciroc because it’s considered to be cool–Diddy says it’s cool so you go to the bar and buy it….No one told me that Bacardi is cool I love it because of the rich taste and aroma along with the fact Bacardi Limited is the largest privately held, family-owned spirits company in the world.

      • Weedras

        i personally think Ciroc is all hype and good promotion.. that shit isn’t all that… if Dame and Jay had did that product placement properly with Armadale which is a better tasting product they probably be stil in business with that… but on a whole Ciroc can’t compare to the originals… at all..

      • I agree…Not even that remember when that brand ummmmm… “Crystal” Jay and many other rappers used to be popping this one specific brand and everyone jumped on the bandwagon, until the released a statement saying that they prefer to not be promoted by any rapper because they are an already international brand and some small time exposer from any rapper is not the image that they wanted to stand behind their brand…What happened after that? No rapper mentioned Crystal ever again, and the brand continued to hold on to there image….So point is if you don’t stand buy something speak out….If you don’t stand for something you will fall for anything.

      • Weedras

        well you’re right about standing for something but Cristal’s comments were disgusting and wreaked of bigotry… and they have paid for it in sales as sales of there product has gone down they may have claimed to retain their image but they’ve gotten a new one also and it’s a negative one… i mean rappers are negative in many ways but give credit where it’s due Rappers made cristal mainstream, i mean you couldn’t damn episode of cribs without ‘cris’ in the fridge or cooler… they were rude… but just like Game… Diddy is a walking contradiction he preaches positivity out his mouth then you see him do bullshit like this.. i didn’t even know he was behind this.. since i started seeing them damn shirts start popping up in stores like footlocker… damn shame the crack epidemic is in its death throws and dudes trying to revive it..

      • So we agree on something—Regardless of profits Crystal made a decision and stood behind there decision….They didn’t care about how many bottles were coming off the store selves, they saw their brand going into a certain direction and they made an effort to stop it…So in this case WE should do the same.

      • Slaughtr

        Yo D no need to explain shyt to some of these peons let em be wild cause you have a valid opinion.

      • Nemesis_Enforcer

        Ha! This is a very valid point too. No one buys these records but they won’t go away.

    • nothinlessdenSour

      LMAO YALL SOUND STUPID…DO YOU WANNA KNOW HOW TO PROTEST SOMETHING????…DONT LISTEN TO IT…ITS THAT EASY..I DONT SEE HOW ALL THESE MUFUCKAS GET MAD WHEN ALL THEY GOTTA DO IS USE THEIR FREE WILL AND TURN THE STATION…AND REALLY WITH FRENCH AND DEM YOU HAVE TO REALLY TO BE CHECKING FOR THEM CAUSE THE ONLY SONG THEY GOT ON THE RADIO IS POP THAT, AND THATS PROMOTING BITCHES TO SHAKE THEY ASS

      • You look at things one way and I see things differently…One must understand what it is they are against BEFORE they go against it….I am not the bandwagon type..I listen to everything before I determine if it is even worth arguing about it.

      • nothinlessdenSour

        BUT WHY GO AGAINST SOMETHING WHEN YOU CAN JUST LEAVE IT ALONE AND GO ABOUT YOUR DAY…REFERRING TO MUSIC

      • You know dam well that it’s more than just turning of your radio…Because when you go to the club, you hear it, the kids listen to it and that’s the problem they force you to listen to it….Rappers like 50cent, Jay and Diddy go as far as linking with outside manufacturers to give radio stations I-pods and tablets, and cars and cash, just so you can sit and listen just to grab your attention to the song. “Leave it alone” If it was only that easy.lol

      • Hector G

        cause it’s being marketed to kids….and its just in bad taste…if it’s really at the point where people are pissed about this brand for whatever reason or because of the real situations in peoples lives due to cocaine and don’t like to see it glamorized. somebody with as much money as diddy should know that a movement like this will never be shit long term let alone the fact that french raps like he’s borderline slow

    • nothinlessdenSour

      YOUR SAYING WE SHOULD PROTEST EVERYTHING WE DONT LIKE IN HIPHOP…YOU JUST WANNA MAKE A BIGGER DIVIDE AMONGST US…EVERY RAPPER HAS PEOPLE WHO LIKE HIM AND PEOPLE WHO DONT…WHOEVER DOESNT SHOULD PROTEST HIM??…..REALLY ALL THIS COMES DOWN TO IS MINDING YOUR OWN BUSINESS…

      • It’s hard to mind your own business when we are talking about public relations….Music is public domain anyone with a voice and ears can speak on how to bring about change.

    • Slaughtr

      You the only nigga who got it together paw.If you buy the records then you contribute to whackness so yea you can protest don’t buy the shyt I don’t it’s been years since I even ran to get a CD so don’t pop no fckn excuses because the industry fooled you niggaz.

  • Johnny Sanchez

    I thought it was to protest how weak that humpty dumpty (french montana) looking mug’s music was, but this is a respectable protest anyhow.

    • Rafael da silva

      damn you are such lame you lol a other kid wit to much time on his hands likes to hate on people who already made it so people who hate these rappers are mad retarded cuz they have money you don’t ! simple diddy bin always a dirty rat french is some other type of shit you Fool

  • Julius a concerned Brother

    Such a terrible movement with horrible music. As a young African American man with all the other pressures and other influences surrounding me why would I degrade myself by promoting such a monstrosity to the youth. Is there no justice for our culture or for our children. We have become a product to these record labels and boast about stuff that should be frowned upon. This is the real reason why hip hop is dead because positivity does not sell! Save our future Save ourselves!!!

  • I don’t agree with the protest or any of this because people need to just face the facts Hip hop / Rap all of this is entertainment, when you start acting and thinking like what your hearing is your real life then you are the one with the problem. If ;you don’t want your kids listening to this type of music be a parent and sit down with them and teach them right from wrong. Marching to Diddys office or any other office wont stop anything if you want to stop something start with the source of the problem.

    • Darren Myt Collins

      I disagree with you….Music is MUCH MORE POWERFUL THAN YOU THINK.Music and political warfare have been used together in many different political contexts and cultures as a way to reach a targeted audience in order to deliver a specific political message. Political warfare as defined by Paul A. Smith is the “use of political means to compel an opponent to do one’s will… commonly through the use of words, images and ideas.”[1] Music is useful because it creates an easily recognizable and memorable method of delivery for the desired message

      • Truth Powell

        Exactly. Mr.Rodney Payne’s comment is very naive. This shit is directly marketed to youth and appeals to all their dreams and fantasies of power and being cool. Not everyone has proper guidance and we need to be responsible to what is put out there.

        Im in Miami, over here you have these preppy subburb white girls hanging with wacka flocka hood clones. Its not an accident. They have been brainwashed to think of the “coke boy” and everything that comes with it as the epitome of modern masculinity. Nevermind the kid in the hood who looks around him and sees a rap video in real life. What does he think to himself? How does he identify as a man and his potential? Many of us older folk weren’t exposed to “gangster rap” until the early 90s. Kids nowadays grow up with these images and words since BIRTH. What does that to do to a person’s psyche?

        Back in my days the music wasn’t soft or saccharine. Wu Tang, Nas, Biggie, Bootcamp, DITC, AZ, Big Daddy kane…..They repped street and hood shit but also so much more. Philosophy, history, pop culture…..they spoke from the hood perspective but also knew they were so much more. Thats what kids need now.

  • ladynamor

    Diddy is also the silent partner of MMG and Trick Ross who promotes negativity. Diddy knows he is the money behind that sh!t.

  • Jas1ne

    I’m headed back to the top of this article and rate this 5 stars. This is exactly what we need more of Illseed

  • Tony G.

    As long as I dont hear a Hope Boys song on the radio or see a music video im cool if this is what they wanna do….if they’re tryna use this as a comeup then its a problem

  • CanYouAllHearMe

    I agree with what they said and the sad part is 80% of these rappers fan bases are lil kids

  • EQ

    these people are wasting their time protesting in front of diddys office,im not a fan of french montana and the coke boys but when will these people realize that terrible music is not the reason why these kids and these communities are so fucked up.

    • Calico Joe

      You could’ve made that argument 10 or 15 years ago, but these days music play a major part on why these kids fucked up.

  • RichFromBX

    hmm…wonder what Diddy would do if one of his kids became a real Coke Boy or a customer of a Coke Boy…it’s all fun and games until someone loses a loved one

    • Capital

      huh

      • RichFromBX

        Diddy is out there promoting this type of crap…how inclined would one be to promote it if it was their son out there in the street dealing it or addicted to it…there’s a difference between artist who have drug dealing as a subject matter when discussing harsh realities of life and it’s another when fools like this are out there talking about it like it’s the ‘chet and the best thing to ever happen to them…do you not see the hypocrisy when you have dude out here talking about trying to be a positive role model for young black men while at the same time pushing this garbage…

  • Bryce13

    I had no idea the level of ignorance that Stench Montana perpetuates until reading this article and watching the video. It is sad because Stench and others of the modern pop rap community seem completely ignorant to the ramifications of cocaine and other drugs that they seem to glamorize. What happened to Hip Hop? What happened to individuality amongst Hip Hop artists’. It is strange because Stench and others seem to have a view of cocaine like folks did in the early 80’s, in which cocaine was viewed as a social drug akin to herb, little did many of those “social users,” no, coke is no joke. IN the community to this day has felt the ramifications. This dumbed down existence of modern era rappers with their pride in using hardcore drugs and not giving a damn about their life is sad. I thought I did’t care until I had several hundred blood clots in each lung, but I sure did care when I was begging God to allow me to live. It is like De La Soul, stated in “Trying People,” You make it seem as if I don’t want to live.” But than again maybe, Stench and others like him don’t want to live. The temporal nature of modern rap and many youth of the day is saddening. What was the point of the Civil RIghts Movement and all the sacrifice that previous leaders such as Malcolm X and Martin Luther King have made? Hope has seemed to disappear within modern rap, at least amongst the commercial/mainstream, which is ironic because supposedly they are making all the money. I have listened to Stench and Chief Keef and they do not talk about a damn thing excluding guns, drugs, and supposed ideals of one sided respect. My three year old can bring more to the societal table, than most modern rappers.

  • AK

    i bet if french put out a cd right now he wouldnt even move 25k hes so weak

  • Super_Hero

    Diddy killed hip hop way before the south got a hold of it. Diddy changed the game for the worst.

  • Dave Williams

    i feel its way out of control and its not like it used to be. what makes it so bad is that alot of these dudes are FAKING

  • pennaitor

    No publicity is bad! and they will just change the name the next minute

  • some guy

    Nobodys making no damn money off of their albums. You want to do some damage? Stop buying all that silly bullshit you buy cuz a rapper put his silly ass cosign to it. They’re money is coming from products, not albums. They only rap to keep your attrntion long enough to sell you some bullshit. Wake up. That’s where their scratch is coming from.

  • I will support you guys on my blog

  • Been sayin this for years. As a people we are in serious trouble if we continue down this path

  • Dawn Haynes

    As a mother and a person who was there in support of Hope Boyz, I see the point is so deep. Stop making our community be the center of Negativity. its time we fight against it!!!!

  • m0n2

    It would been better if they would’ve used a real “crack head” instead of a heroin addict.
    I wonder if white people protested against the band “Crystal Method” because of the name?

    Y’all need to protest against the producers(of illicit drug), as opposed to protesting against the poets who keep us talking about the problem.
