On the track, the New Orleans rapper calls P an “unloyal hypocrite,” and claims that his brother, who he calls his “hero,” may have called the police on him.

Master P spoke on his brother’s previous track, and told AllHipHop that the rift was over money. The famed music exec also spoke about the love that he has for C-Murder, but says that it’s time for him to take responsibility for his actions that led to his jail sentence.

“I love my brother but at times he can be ungrateful and disrespectful. I’ve spent millions of dollars towards his legal fees in fighting all of his cases. Even when I’ve told him, “No”, I still came through. If that isn’t love, I don’t know what is. I’m not God, I can’t break somebody out of jail. I wasn’t at the club with him that night, he put himself in that predicament, he just beat two cases before that, in which I paid for and supported.”

P added, “As a man, we have to be responsible for our own actions. I realize this is not about love, this is about money. And this often happens to families that are dealing with relatives with addictions, lack of education and financial literacy. I was taught that wise man learns but a fool never will.” At the end of the day, all family fuss and fight but when it get real only your family gon be there for you.”

Do you think Master P will respond to C-Murder’s latest track?

Cash Money Degreez gets EXCLUSIVE with Turk from federal prison

Saturday, September 1st, 2012

The Cash Money Degreez blog is one of the biggest supporters of New Orleans music and has been since its inception. Because of that, a lot of rappers honor CMD by providing exclusives and other perks – CMD recently got an EXCLUSIVE with Turk from federal prison from the Forrest City facility. With his official release date being October 12, 2012, Turk’s friends, family and fans anxiously await his release. Below is the text of CMD EXCLUSIVE interview with Turk, along with a link to the actual site/interview:

[EXCLUSIVE] Here is a very special moment for the webpage. In exclusive, from Forrest City (Low) prison we contacted Turk and we asked him several questions and have reviewed his musical career. Also, I must say this is the first exclusive interview to Turk in years.  In 2005, Turk was convicted on federal charges of being a felon in possession of a firearm, a fugitive from justice in possession of a firearm, and an unlawful user addicted to a controlled substance in possession of a firearm.
He was sentenced to 10 years of incarceration. In 2006, he entered an Alford plea in Tennessee state court to second-degree attempted murder, based on the same incident, and was sentenced to 14 years imprisonment. Now, Turk breaks his silence in this interview from prison:
What up Turk? What is your current situation right now? When is your projected release from jail, in October??
What’s thuggin’ my G!!!! My current situation is that I’m incarcerated at Forrest City (Low) Federal Penitentiary. My official release date is 10/12/2012.

 

EDITOR’S NOTE: Cash Money Degreez is a blog dedicated to New Orleans area rap music. It does a stellar job of giving press to independent artists and we applaud them.

CONVERSATION WITH A LEGEND: Fiend a/k/a International Jones

Thursday, August 18th, 2011

Cool is definitely in session when Fiend's around

“Stay straight baby. Stay straight. It’ll all make sense one day. Forget the prestige – Congo Square in the flesh.” – Fiend

It was 1995, the year that the world would come to know rapper, Fiend. Having released his first album, “I Won’t Be Denied”, on Big Boy’s label, Fiend was well on his way.

Two years later, he signed with No Limit Records and the rest as they say, is history. Fiend’s lyrics will forever be etched into our memories, as they are deep and thought provoking. His lyrical skills are most definitely on another level.

Fiend is now currently touring with Curren$y and quite a few other popular artists on the Smokers’ Club Tour – a move that is taking his brand around the globe.

Fiend made numerous appearances on No Limit features and in several instances, took them over like they were custom written and produced for him. His second album, “There’s One in Every Family” was a bonified hit and has become a solid classic. It made it to the top spot on Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip Hop chart and in the Top 10 on Billboard’s Top 200 – quite a feat for a New Orleans rapper of that era. “Street Life” also debuted at the top of Billboard’s charts, as he introduced another hit to the world. “Walk Like A G” is a classic street anthem to this day and is even more memorable because of his collaboration with the late New Orleans legend Soulja Slim. “Can I Ball” and “Shell Shocked”, duos with Mac, are two more Fiend hits that will forever live in the streets and beyond. The list is truly endless.

Fiend was one of the legendary artists who helped lay the groundwork for the genre. He’s worked with artists from Mia X, Mac, Mystikal, C-Murder, Silkk That Shocker, Mr. Serv-On, Three-6 Mafia, and Master P to Snoop Dogg and UGK to the late legends Soulja Slim and Tim Smooth. Fiend has added the title of producer to his already impressive resume.

We recently caught up with Fiend on the heels of the first part of the Smokers’ Club Tour, which is set to pick back up on October 12, 2011 and also includes Curren$y, Method Man, Big Krit, Smoke DZA, The Pricks, Corner Boy P, and others.

Fiend filled us in on his latest projects, and he dropped some knowledge on us about the industry:

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: How’s the tour going?

FIEND: It’s getting ready to crank back up on October 12th. We’re just getting back from ATL. Good people, good times. Good times, good vibes. Because of Curren$y, a lot of the younger fans are familiar. He helped get downloads of the mixtapes. Many of the kids are aware of me through Curren$y.

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: What’s your latest project?

FIEND: It’s “Cool Is In Session” – it dropped 7/28/11. I’m trying to drop a new mixtape every two months. I hope the drop the next one on 9/14/11. The most recent one was a little late, but I hope to drop a mixtape every other month.

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: We have several NOUE affiliated artists that cited you as having a huge influence on their careers. What advice do you have for the younger artists in the industry?

FIEND: Learn the business. You have to learn the business. Go sit in somebody’s library or somewhere and learn the business. Have a plan and execute it. You can be in the studio and waste hours, days, months, or even years, and if you don’t have a plan …. If you learn the business, you get the most of out of the experience. Don’t be afraid to ask questions. You gotta out hustle cats. It takes structure to get serious and you better know what you’re selling. You gotta stay consistent. Somebody once told me, “Ricky, have some prestige about yourself. Don’t be a whore for the business. Don’t jump at everything.”

THE HEAT MAGAZINE:: What do you think about the newly formed New Orleans Union for Entertainment – the N.O.U.E.?

FIEND: It’s a nice movement. We lacked organization and structure in the hip hop scene. You have to know what you’re working on. New Orleans has a lot of talented artists – rare artifacts for real – but the music scene hasn’t’ progressed due to a lack of structure. Culture year round in New Orleans – Congo Square in rap form. Maybe one day they’ll get it.

THE HEAT MAGAZINE:: What are your thoughts on the loss of a legend, Tim Smooth?

FIEND: Tim Smooth was the big brother for Down South artists. He saw the talent and helped nurture that talent. He will really be missed. Lord knows what his family is going through right now. I can only imagine. Tim was one of those cats – whether he was on the road, in the studio, or just in life, he always helped out in crunch times. He was the only man who had been there a lot. He was a hip hop big brother, no doubt, and he’ll be greatly missed. He’ll be greatly missed. God has a plan. Tim was just another soul that left entirely too young. Tim Smooth helped me through some tough times on some real life ish.

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: How do you see the music industry evolving?

FIEND: You gotta stay consistent. I’m dropping an album every two months. People know what they want now and they’ll go straight to it. I make music and go from there and I’m interested to see where it goes. A lot of music is overlooked. It aint’t easy, but God is great. I get up and keep going at it. There’s more to the music I’m making. It’s packaged well and has a message in it. Genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration.

THE HEAT MAGAZINE: Is there any other work you’d like to get into?

FIEND: Movies – cartoons and voiceover work. I would love to narrate. That would be cool and I’d still be making the music.

EDITOR’S NOTE: We salute Fiend and look forward to hearing much more from him. He is a legend whose music continues to evolve. Make sure to check out the Smokers Club Part 2 and his new releases. Visit Dat Piff for downloads of Fiend’s mixtapes: Dat Piff downloads
