What would it take...
« on: November 16, 2008, 12:20:03 AM »
For the Westcoast to create it's own major label to compete with Interscope and others and put it's own on?  Could all these new dudes on the west get together and form something?  I think Damizza could put something like that together and run it.

Honestly I don't think we want any of them running a label... maybe maybe Cube but none of the others.  Dre takes forever to put out a record and don't put on the west.  Ice T don't really fuck with rap anymore.  Snoop.. well I like him but his production and features and shit just don't work.  I think he would be horrible at running a label.  Cube, WC & Crazy Toones are the closest to putting some real westcoast shit together.

I'd prefer to have Damizza, Dae One, F Major and other west coast producers running that shit and putting on the "newer" west coast cats.  They already are on a smaller scale with their own labels.  Babyree, Diocese, Dae One Productions etc.. but if they could get the money and backings to really promote these dudes... I think then they could bring back the west.

Nice idea. It could work, would take some time but it could work.

No problem. Yeah Damizza could definitely head a label like that. If promoted right I definitely think it could work. And sticking by release dates also.

I think they could do it.  Stick with release dates, good promoting... and I think if they could keep the nice IN HOUSE production like the West did back in the day with Death Row & Dangerous Crew etc... they could make some banging CD's and bring back the west.

Where's Damizza at?!?!?!

Great idea. But I think people stopped doing deals with each other. Simply they can't make understood, everybody wants to run this and that. They would fight for the money, that's unfortunately today's world.

So they'll put out shitty albums instead of albums full of unity and energy.
It's funky enough!

Mostly true but what I've seen these last two years with Damizza, Dae One, Bishop, Taje etc.. they all work together really well and put out damn good albums.. which they have been putting out for free.. and with ALL of them I would have bought them.

THE WESTCOAST LEGENDS THAT ARE "RICH" WOULD HAVE TO PUT THERE MONEY IN AS AN INVESTMENT AND STEP BACK AND LET SOME OTHER CAT RUN IT!!! GOOD LUCK  8)

True statement, I would have bought them too! But, they ain't got power to run the major label in my opinion.
