Did Jeezy Get Monie Love Fired?



A week ago Young Jeezy was on 100.3 The Beat in Philadelphia with veteran rapper Monie Love and they got into it about whether or not hip hop was dead and Jeezy ended up storming out the interview. You can listen to the storm out here. This week according to illseed at All Hip Hop, Monie is off the air.

Yeah, I agree!!! I don't really like ANY of the new millinium rappers, but there is something about Jeezy I like and I can understand why the south is getting mad at Naz (although I partially agree with him as well) because I think TI,Jeezy,and Lil Wayne are pretty good and I have VERY HIGH standards in everything


Monie Luv was washed up before 1991 so she is just BITTER and needs to go back to London...I used to love her like common but now she is just a bitch old lady who failed to make the transittions necessary to stay current like Queen Latifa has!!!

I was born in raised in the South. It's a whole different culture, lifestyle etc. And Hip Hop in the South has been like this to us since the Ghetto Boys in the late 80's (I live in H-Town). So this IS Hip Hop to us. It's just new to the rest of the world. We never really get into some of that hardcore west coast and east coast rap (still don't). It's just comes down to what genre of hip hop did you grow up listening to. One's not better than the other. We all come in different shades but we still black.

Now this is some bull! Jeezy aint important enough or That famous to be getting ANY type radio personality fired from their job. He just mad cuz Monie right about hiphop being not just dead.........but a HUGE LOAD OF CRAP! Now-a-days Everything sounds and looks the same. Its completely nauseating!

YoMoms said...

rite. Monie wasn't tryna dis Jeezy's music she was just saying that a lot of hip hop nowadays sound the same. Back in the day rappers weren't just talkin about selling drugs, hoes, money and cars, they talked about a variety of different issues. And today I hate how every rapper seems to be working with the same producer. Damn give Scott Storch a break.

O.K. Every body come down. Because what Nas did was genius. What did he do? He brought respect back to the game. How so?

Call it a challenge, if you will. Because the word, "dead" is really what is getting people so panegyrized about hip-hop and its true existence. And it's a good thing, because it got people talking about the existence of hip-hop and its future.

Nas says that hip-hop is dead. So, when is the resurrection CD coming out? Yeah, I see a nice little marketing scheme, going on here. Soon as every one has had their beef, you're going to see a lot more people, trying to get into the game. Sucker MC's to the left and real MC's to the right. And all of those holiday rappers, taking up change, looking for food. Will somebody please pass the mic and let's get it snapping.

Nas knows the hip-hop isn't dead. But it has changed. And sometimes, you have to die, in order to come back to life. The only thing that this challenge has done, is called for the real MC's to step to mic and spit your best rhymes. None of this "how much I got routine". Those joints are played out and straight tired. And this is all what Nas is saying. All of these holiday rappers, such as fifty, The GAME and who ever else that falls into that catergory of convicted love songs; needs to sit down, pass the mic and let the real MC's show you how it's done. Until then, Rest In Peace, Hip-Hop!!!!! One Love!

See you at the crossroads, crossroads!!!

It is a damn shame that a BLACK WOMEN with a working brain gets fired because she expressed herself, in a respectful way, mind you.

Jeezy is a bitch for not knowing how to accept criticism or wanting to listen to a different opinion.

OMG...When Ms.Jones hung up Christina Milian nothing happen,Egypt adn her co-host kinda sorta rude to Foxy the other day nothing happen.. If anything Jezzy was out of place with her... He made a statement abotu where she was from when all she like that had any merit.. all she stated was that HIP-HOP was dead whcih indeed it is... The days of Heavy D,Kwame,Etc.Etc are gone.. that was she was getting.. If he had anything to do with her loosing her job whcih he did his day is coming... watch....

Aftr reading all the blogs, this is what I surmise...the south does have a different culture in regards to RAP MUSIC, hip hop culture on the other hand is what spawned rap music...the culture itself has been marred with various misconceptions and generalities due to the RAP MUSIC of my day becoming Pop Culture, of my generation, the Jezzys and the Lil Waynes, the rappers, not Emcees...RAP MUSIC in the days of Rakim, MC Shan, Kool Moe Dee, Melle Mel, MC Lyte, KRS One, a time when rap was about lyrical ability, creativity of wordplay and rhymescheme, orginality (ever seen Kwame and the polka dots?) was the focus and biting was disrepectful and not excepted, when clever stories of everyday life was told and an artist didn't give you 3 albums of "Crack Music" that 20 othr artist in the game jus sold to you the week before; that's hip hop, that's wat is dead. Rakim; just as hood as the next hood nigga. Once the story of where he was from was told and the world was introduced to him, did that continue to be the subject matter of his rhymes? What kept you listening was his wordplay, cleverly lacing his bars with knowledge only those put on to the 5 percenters nation would catch and undrstand...Jeezy, you bring nothing new to the table, and you fall directly into the catagory of "Crack Music", the same jargon promoting negative stereotypes and continuing to cloud the conception of what hip hop really is to the minds of the youth that haven't had the chance to learn what it is before pop culture force feeds them you and your sorry adlibs. What's even more sad is the fact that I'm 21 and I kno what Hip Hop is, did growing up in Brooklyn had anythng 2 do with that? Is growing up in the south excuse to not know your professions roots? U do kno your the son of slaves right? So with the music readily available wats your excuse for not knowing what's hip hop and what's not? I kno white boys from the suburbs that can tell you what hip hop is and its roots. I've watched white boys mouth lyrics from Nas illmatic album back at Nas himself. Wats your excuse? Southern culture my ass. I bet Snoop can tell you where n who influenced him and hip hop culture. You just another uneducated nigga with half ass flow and luckily a voice unlike anyones. And then tou come at Nas and Monie? Idiot. Hip Hop is very much dead...luckily people like Common and Lupe can rise out of gang infested cities and leave the reporting of such to you sorry rappers and actually talk about more real issues that plauge our youth in the hood other than crack, actually give us an intriuging story, experiment with tougher rhyme schemes, break molds that creat their own paths yet follow the foundation laid by Hip Hop legends. Nas is a living legend among us. Respect the architects. Hip Hop has probly been hiding in a book, that's why your ass probly don't know what it is.....1

Goodfellas-- Great post. Hip Hop started to die when you saw more rap then rock on MTV. Now a days there is a formula that is being used to get to the millions of dollars. It is a catchy hook a dash of bangin beat and a very small pinch of talent. You know that we are in trouble when songs like "Chains Hang Low" and "Money in the Bank" are getting crazy airtime. They are catchy but don't do anything at all for Hip Hop and they would never be on the air 10 years ago much less when Hip Hop was alive and well. Also Monie Love today would out rhyme Jeezy while driving to work, haveing a splitting headache, and all 4 wizdom teeth pulled out. Just another MTV rapper thinking he is the real. PEACE SONS

Glad to see 2 people agree with me and actually took the time to read the post. MTV was a major player in the fall of hip hop...more exposure meant more money; for the label execs of course. Once they realized it was something they could capitalize on then the exploitation began. I blame BET also, more so then MTV only because BET in my mind should have a moral obligation to not feed its youth scapple and hog head cheese (rap that is), give it filet mignon instead, HIP HOP. Teach them, inspire them, inspire a child to wanna be a writer and not a thug. Inspire a child to wanna make a change in his community instead of 'bang' in his community. Look up what BET told Little Brother in regards to not playing they're music video due to it being to "conscious". What kinda shit is that!? I don't believe Jeezy got Monie fired..I think she left because she couldn't deal wit the stupidity and degredation of a cultural phenomenon that in my opnion was a modern day Harlem Renaissance. To Jeezy and evry other RAPPER, keep shuckin' and jivin' like the minstrels you are. I wish ya'll RAPPERS would stumble across this blog, cuz I got some words for you...1

@ Goodfella well said! Hip Hop ended when Biggie and Pac died. Nas and JadaKiss are ones who will resurrect it! I'm so sick of all these whack ass, 1 min of fame, rapping off the back of cereal boxes rappers!

angela said...

Um..Monie Love can rap?

I wanted to leave a comment but TINTED nailed it!!

I think its a shame that somebody has to get fired. Instead of acting like a BITCH young Jeezy needs to do like old school go home get his pen and pad and prove everyone wrong. That is what is meant by Hip Hop is dead. Rappers today don't take criticism. Take for example KRS-One vs MC Shan, LL Cool J vs Kool Moe D. When one would dis the other would write his rihymes and make a come back. Not this I hate you and crying and shit.

If u ask me hip hop is dead. All monie love was doing was proving a point, hip hop is not hip hop anymore all they rap about is sleeping with females, killing sombody, and packing guns. Didn't we learn anything after the death of Bigge and Tupac and also Jam Master Jay. We need to come together and stop hating on one another.

Hip Hop, just like every genre of music, has evolved. Now whether that's a good thing or not I don't know. But Young Jeezy represents the guilty conscience of many non-NY rappers who remain envious of NYCity. Let's face it what is it really about? Where you are from! Did you know that the biggest lie on college campuses is "Oh, um I'm from New York!" The Southern-rap style is just a fly ass beat but no lyrical content and they've been trying to play catch to the East Coast for 2 decades. Be Honest with yourself. Signed. A Brooklyn Knight. One

Jeezy is da truth. but one thing we got to undastan in the music industry is the difference between hip-hop and rap. Rap is rhythm and poetry while hip-hop is more of da dancing having fun type of music. So now ask yoself..is hip-hop really dead or is rap emerging over the horizon? now u do hear more club bangas because those sell records. thats hip hop. but when u finally buy the album and u hear a whole bunch of street hustlin songs and coke stories den dats rap. hip hop sells the album..rap keeps the fans. And dats what everybody has to undastan. So for dem niggas thats hatin on Jeezy and sayin he killin hip-hop he's not. he's actually just tellin his stories on wax. And dats sumthin we all gotta respect.

no 1 person holds the power to determine whether a culture is deceased or not...not EVEN Nas,and im a student of his- Monie Love is foul for her behavior,she abused her powers of an on-air personality,and took the opportunity to attack Jeezy instead of just doing her job...she got exactly what she deserved.Jeezy ISNT the best lyricist by ANY MEANS,but his music is from the heart,and told from his perspective as HE SEES IT...which is EXACTLY what this music is about...EXPRESSION!!!!!

Talking about street.Jeezy needs to shut his 5th grade educated ass the fuck up. Who gives a shut if Nas is "in the streets" or has friends in the feds?!?!? That is coon sh*t!!!! Why would your crack baby ass try to brag about that. Jeezy is everything that is wrong with hip hop.
Nas brought the streets of QB to the world like none other. Allow a man to grow. WE NEED GROWN MEN IN HIP HOP. Dude from Nima,Ghana.

Hip- Hop is dead and calling that crap Jeezy does "rap" is vomiting a record exec's party line excuse/propganda. Explain to me how less than 2% of black people are thugs,pimps, and hustlas yet it represents 98% of the subject matter we hear on the radio? Hip hop was suppose to be by us, for all of us! I agree with one person's take that the death of hip hop will cause a resurrection of another form. Cuz Yo! These spoken word cats are kicking ass with the realizm. Like that group Quiet Rage, Shyste, Shadow cat etc.

Jeezy, the ying yang twins etc. are nothing but a huge group of jigaboos, selling out for the dollar like uncle toms. Monie love getting fired is a frightening reality of the power of money over our culture. When one person has the balls to speak out against something wrong? They loose their livelihood, so A-holes like Jeezy run wild unchecked. It's so damn pathetic! Yo, spoken word artists are the future of hip-hop and yaw need to broaden your horizens and check them out.

I'm still not understanding how Moni gets respect. She was okay for a second but I would never put her in any of my lists. She is just cosigning with Nas because she respects the fact that he actually sold some records, lol. Moni isn't fooling anyone, Jeezy is rap and most of ya just aren't seeing his wordplay, which can crush a lot of the artists you like. Most of these arguments are against gangsta rap, not the new rap in general. There is a difference between gangsta rap and what Soulja Boy does. Soulja Boy and most of the other ATL rappers that have a new dance every other day wish they had some rap skills like Jeezy. It would have been more convincing had she interviewed someone who didn't have any skills. Jeezy's problem was that he couldn't articulate his arguments and Moni was trying to run circles around him. Plus Moni's a has been trying to gain some points quite honestly I thought it was Wendy Williams at first until they said something. B* went that low to stoop to her level, lol. I'm sorry, but Moni tried to go all Bill O'Reily on Jeezy, it was a s* interview.

Southern and rap don't belong in the same sentence. Those clowns aren't lyrical all it is full loaded base music with repetitive foolery chanting. This imbeciles have screwed up hip hop

that interview would not have upset the station to the point that they would fire her. it more than likely generated ratings for the station. it has to be something more with that

We'll I want to start off by saying I've been a monie love fan every since teenage years I don't think that monie was criticizing him i think she was just trying to tell him something u know most people would take advice especially from some one who's been In the game it's not like she doesn't have experience people r saying monie doesn't know it all jeezzy doesn't either u can tell by his flow he doesn't him and a lot of these rappers today they don't sell records on their flow they sell records on how they look bling bling money women and cars that the repo man is going to come and get if they can't pay for sooner or later the point is old skool is always is

And always be the influince for the new skool that's just a fact

Thank you Monie,Nas & every lyricist that has stood up to defend what this culture was intended to be. Rakim,Kane,Krs and the true greats would not allow most of these clown to even proclaim publicly that they are Mc's. Where is your originality. There is a myriad of things to express your self about. Open your lexicon, and expand your mind "New School"! Listen, Learn, & grow. We all heard the"drugs,sex,money& murder" B.S! How long are y'all going to keep recycling this non-sense. We can really do better.
