I get the point of mp3 blogs, duh: post mp3s, get linked, maybe a bad rapper will hit you with an exclusive track or if you’re the luckiest maybe an exclusive mixtape. But still, how is the whole internet gonna post this new Juelz track without admitting — no contrarian Dipset hate here, by the way — that Juelz is a. no longer a good rapper and b. that he’s completely ruined this incredible beat.
For one, I’m surprised that people are still checking for new Juelz verses, but beyond that, did no one think by the time that Juelz was dropping played out napalm and BAPE references ten seconds into his first verse how much better it would be if a good-in-2009 rapper was on this beat? Something this vintage, this creeping and grimey (yet still elegant) deserves better than a dude who jumps on and implies that he sticks his whole head inside vaginas. Where is the clamoring for Jada or Freeway or Twista? Imagine Big L or Mobb Deep. I can’t believe that people actually think he went hard on this beat, so why hasn’t anyone said it? I know, I know. But, still.
In order to end this post on a positive note, I’m posting this classic Rap City freestyle from the Big Tigger era of The Dips blazing the “My Block” beat. Jones and Juelz are WEARING THROWBACKS and Cam is in all pink and raps his verse while counting money. The good days.
Here’s another dope Juelz freestyle over that Lloyd Banks song “The Cake”. Lol @ Juelz saying I Can’t Feel My Face was coming soon. In 2006.
