"Im like coffee cause I did good off my last drop"
he he! I really liked that line.....
Aiiiiight.......so yall know I am putting together a mixtape. I am sooooo excited!!!! I'm gonna offer you a ONE STOP SHOP FOR REAL!!!!
One person in particular who not only stood out because of the prompt response I received when I requested material, but also because I really was feelin the music. Al of govt names
wrote about him a few months back, but I am just now taking the time to really
smell the roses.NOE
is the name....
Some of you may also know him as NOE MONEY
Now let me get this out the way......
YEAH YEAH YEAH!!!!
If you were to close you eyes and just listen....you would swear he sounds like Jigga. I mean......SERIOUSLY.....its uncanny!!! There really is no getting around that so......
all that aside.....
I pray that folk give him a chance. I can't really give a full review because I've only heard a few of his songs. But of what I have heard...... Dude can really spit.
He is on that "yeah I'm cocky, but don't knock me
" ish. I love it.
We got a hell a lot of "crack slingers" and "pack movers" round here....that catch hacks
....& people thinking its slick to talk about how dusty their azz is.....is gettin a little played out
. We need more artists from Bmore that have a lil "slickness" about them. Erebody ain't poor and poverty is an un desireable condition everywhere, but Baltimore, apparently ...LOL
! I like my men "CLEAN" aka no one that brags about wearing the same clothes for 3 days straight. A guy will tell you in a second that a female emcee, "needs to have lil boys at home with greasy palms in order to be successful
"...well I want to counter that!!!!......guys need to know that we like a lil eye candy too. We like to do a lil fantasizing from time to time too!!! LOL
! I love the guys who from the time they enter the venue ..til the time they leave the venue...you are clocking their moves because they have an aura about them that demands attention. He and D.O.G
. are two artists that give me that kinda of feeling.
I currently have his song, "Murda Murda Money", playi
ng in my MYSPACE
player. The feedback has been really good. This is some mixtape ish fo sho! I believe that he is rockin ova a Jigga beat. Yeah Yeah Yeah...go awn and ask.....why??? I think he knows that ...it is what it is...so why fake like erebody ain't gonna already say he tryna sound or be like Jay. I would imagine that its a gift and a curse to sound like someon that is so beloved. But if you think about it Jay Z didn't always sound the way he sounds now. sooooo, I guess we would have to listen to old NOE to truly NOE the difference...LOL! Maybe.....just maybe that is the way his voice sounds. If we can just get past the comparisons...maybe folk will find that he really puts some effort into his bars. This track was a great introduction ....his flow fit the track perfectly. The violins in the back were constantly revving me up! I was totally into it. .......& anybody that knows me....knows...I am NOT into mixtapes like that. I am a HUGE supporter of original concepts.
I mentioned to NOE that he needs to start coming out to events and things more. He doens't live in Bmore at this time, but he has assured me that he will become more visible. I told him that as a whole the scene is becoming much more reponsive to local talent. Not that he has to be here per se...cause if you check his page or google him...you will find that he truly does rep Bmore all day long!!! I just had to add this.... he has impeccable manners!!! OMG! this guy can really do NOE wrong in my book LOL! Oh yeah....& did I mention that he is signed to the Dipset????
Message from NOE:
"THE STREETS AIN'T A 'PLACE' NO MORE. CUZ NOW THEY SELL IT AS A MINDFRAME. THOSE THAT HAVE LIVED AND SURVIVED ARE A DYING BREED. THERE IS NOTHING GLAMOROUS ABOUT STRUGGLE AND GUNS. TRUTH NEVER HAS TO BE SOLD MY NIGGAS. WE ARE GOOD BOYZ WHO LEARNED TO RIP CHARGE PAPERS INTO LOTTO TICKETS....."--NOE, HUSH MAGAZINE
STAY UP MY NIGGA MY PULSE IS YOUR PULSE!!!!!!!!
A few folks hit me up wondering how they can get some of his music. I am going to find out what he has coming out in the near future, but in the meantime..... NOE has music on his MYSPACE page as well as a mixtape for sale on ebay
called the "Brix Tape". Also, DJ J-Spin (Patapsco Flea Market - Sat. & Sun) has a few CDS of some of his older material at his stand. Speaking of J Spin, definitely stop in and let him know that you are interested in some Balimore Hip Hop. knowing J...they way I know him...him not selling a wide selection of local music has more to do with people not asking for it than him not being down for the cause!!!
Also in my player ......
Silo - Betty Boo Getto (FIYAH!!!!)
The Boy Blesst ("We ridin 2 miles an hours...& erebody" ...for those that be on that lean)
E the Poet Emcee ("Life's Story"....he is spittin that real ish!)
