Author Topic: A MESSAGE TO DUBCNN STUFF - NIMA, LIL' JAY, RUD ETC - PLEEEASE RESPOND!!!  (Read 2363 times)

haha.. i've been holding back on what i think of LAMB...

ironically nik's e-40 flow is the best thing on the track.. but the beat is way all over the place, the melodies are way off especially where they try to layer them at the end off left and right in the headphones

my advice. simplify the track, and get rid of roccy (if thats the one that sounds like a special needs kid at the start) and any other ad libbing bullshit.. keep it raw and basic..



Isn't the whole point of running  a west-coast hip-hop related site is that you're finding it yourself. I'm sorry but that just makes dubcnn appear half-ass if your own staff isn't finding out the information.

I never said that EVERYONE has to come.. but as it stands certain members of staff have certain connections and relationships they've built.. if stuff is outside the channels they've built then they can't reach it, and if they arent particularly interested in it, then of course they aren't chasing it. they chase what they like.

this is why every site has its own slant on things.. some sites only chase certain artists and crews because they've made that one hookup.

Yeah but it just looks silly when west coast artists are getting major attention everywhere else but being ignored at dubcnn, the home of west coast hip hop. You don't have to have a relationship with an artist to write about them and give us info on their career.

you mean just recycle stuff thats already been posted elsewhere? whats the point in that? that aint reporting, thats biting and recycling

really, i dont think there is anythin wrong wit Niccks rapping style.
its a good flow. lyrics dont really impress me, but the flow is dope
like Spice2 said somewhere before, "that voice is not made/good for hiphop-music,, Kermit the Frog blah blah", or somethin like that. i agree

but as long as he gets the right studio-mixing and raps on the apropriate music production (suitable to his voice), i think he could make some cool songs tho.

what track are we talkin about where the beat is all over the place n melodies are off? we got a lotta songs now....we been puttin in work, seer. we actually recruited 818 veteran, klientel, as part of our clique. my boy has a track record which includes songs with 4tay, suga free, b-real, san quinn, killa tay, outlawz etc, has opened for quik, pete rock, kid frost amongst others and was nominated for an award earlier this year. very respected rapper locally. obviously, were independent artists, so were not usin top-notch studios, but more of the same equipment mac dre and other underground bay artists used in the past, check the ad-libs for comparison:

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/ktCuDxFUQmc" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/ktCuDxFUQmc</a>


anyways, we been elevatin and expandin with each track. i'm bout to put out our track with x-raided today, and hopefully release the album later this year. lota west coast bangers on there, guaranteed.



tell me, though...whats ur honest opinion on Klientel?:

that klientel song isnt bad, i like the beat and he spits alright but i dont see anything on his youtube page about you clowns, and  supposedly  hes part of your little crew? and are you seriously trying to compare yourself to mac dre? mac dre's  adlibs were funny cuzhe had charisma and had a good voice for that, you sound like a dopy goofball jew. honestly youre shit sounds like people would do as a joke rap group for fun, which is wat  i thought you were doing the whole time

u openly hate jews, why should ur opinion be relevant? mac dre's adlibs were tight cuz he's dope... all of L.A.M.B has dope shit and we're buildin. Klientel is comin with an album this year and has at least 4 Fingazz tracks on it. he just needs the right push. L.A.M.B debut album is in the workds as well, and we got all our peeps heavily featured, klientel, m.o., g-extravagant (ull hear about him later), as well as the raided and c-dubb tracks.

you mean just recycle stuff thats already been posted elsewhere? whats the point in that? that aint reporting, thats biting and recycling

No, its something every website does. One site is always the first to break something. Then others use it as a reference to make their own posting. IE Snoop talks about a new album and gives a release date to one website, other sites use that info to make their own post about it. Not everyone is sitting down with Snoop to have him repeat the same info 100 times. It just seems like Dubcnn would rather ignore certain artists entirely that they either can't or don't want to build connections with.

But when you do a site on West Coast music aren't you supposed to report on precisely THAT, regardless of whether or not you might or NOT have, personal "connections" with this artist or that artist? Because if this is how it works, it seems to me like favouritism? & That's where things turn sour.

Exactly. To me it seems more like an update for Nima's favorite artists, rather than everything thats happening on the west coast. If this were a personal blog that would make sense, but its not.

yall are expecting too much from nima hes not a cali native and yall expect him to be totally in touch with the culture and everything going on in the rap scene when for years this place he lives at only existed on his tv screen and on videos and shit. its still a whole new world for this guy and i dont mean this disrespectfully.

yall need to be in touch with the local scene more out there and employ a team of cats in cali to make these things happen organize events etc , im not saying yall dont try but when i seen the welcome daz to dubcnn thing on the front page a few months ago when radiotube dissed him i realized exactly how out of touch and skewed things really are...you guys are pigeon holing yourselves by doing this becasue the raps scene in cali is pretty much moved on from the gfunk low rider days. by representing the westcoast like this yall arent giving an honest representation and people know this, not enough burn is given to the bay this site is a 90s los angeles rap based niche forum and caters to europeons with an eclectic taste for nineties pop culture.

congrats you guys have turned this place into a novelty.

i dont place the blame on nima, but you're right, dubcnn definitely needs additional staff members from Cali who know the scene well and will cover different grounds. like u said, the bay area doesn't get nearly as much coverage as it should. X-Raided, a norcal legend, is comin out with his major label debut in about a week and it hasn't even been covered yet. instead, we get coverage of Nima's favorite unknown Persian rappers. there are legit cats from the west hollerin at dubcnn for promo who are not even getting responses. tons of west coast rappers with legit buzz that aint gettin covered.


not a diss to dubcnn...i think the site has potential to really expand and become the biggest thing for west coast hip-hop. but not with the way things are being covered right now. nima deserves credit, cuz he's everywhere puttin in work, at shows, networking with different rappers, etc...but it's definitely time to expand them horizons a bit.

what track are we talkin about where the beat is all over the place n melodies are off? we got a lotta songs now

the one in your sig.. the melodies aren't "off key" but they don't mesh when layered - i;ll check the rest when i have a minute

As dude says, it ain't a question of dissing Nima or the rest of the staff, ON THE CONTRARY, it is a question of IMPROVING things mentioning what we think are some weak points & turn them into strong ones.

ur talkin about the outro, right?...that's live instrumentation done by the homie evaneezy. he plays the clarinet. dude came through and improvised over the beat to end the track on the spot. he played it live right over the beat and thats how we kept it, old school jazz style. anyways, good looks on checkin. thats one of our older tracks. we've progressed with our equipment/mixing since then...gunna post up some new stuff real soon.

Do you really think his parents would let him contact a convicted murder? The only X-Raided track he'll probably put out is some random semi-rare acapella that he'll mix over another ripped off beat because he can't produce anything original. If he did delete the post 10 bucks says he didn't even think of that idea until I Posted it. even if he did get in contact I bet he spent the money on getting his eye brows waxed again. Now I know he'll say some shit like "hop off my nuts" or "yeah right 2 the left" or some faggy shit like that, but the only time his nuts ever drop is when he's in the closet "Studio" and he can mix his own voice to sound less retarded.  :-\

lol @ this forum is lost. West Coast should be West Coast. Not just West Coast music you like. Even though I don't really fuck with Lil' B & shit like that. They're the ones with relevant names.
