Columbus Hip Hop legends DJ O-Sharp and Trav Dave of the Usual Suspects sit down with Brooklyn legend DJ Clark Kent. The discussion starts with O bringing up Clark Kent performing with Dana Dane and Biggie.

And of course they spoke on DJ Clark Kent’s sneaker game.
Seriously, this is some Wax Poetic level information.
the Usual Suspects have a roller skating jam coming up. I’ll let you guys know about that later.

MC Hammer So Appalled @ Jay-z Via Kanye

Soo…MC Hammer didn’t like Jay-z’s line about not worrying about blowing 30,000,000 dollars like MC Hammer on Kanye’s “So Appalled” posse cut which already was commenting on how ridiculous some rap beefs are:

Video:Freeway and Stalley Rapping Over Takeover in Columbus,Ohio

YouTube Preview Image
Can I kick it?

ROC we running this rap shit…now…this is purely speculation but…After Dipset came and dissed Kanye over his own beat last week.
And awhile back Jay-z came out with a Creative Control mixtape which raised eyebrows because thats the name of Dame Dash’s video brand. This came on the heels of Dame Dash boasting he was going to restart Roc-a-Fella records..
Like I said this is speculation but Freeway and Stalley are both down with Dame Dash so perhaps this a foreshadowing of a another Dame vs. Jay campaign?

Both Curren$y’s Pilottalk and Ski Beatz, 24 Hour Karate School(which dropped today minus any Mos Def involvement ) are said to be on Roc-a-Fella but the spine on the CD says DD172. So Dame Dash hasn’t fully jumped in the Roc-a-Fella takeover, yet.
My guess is that they are gonna wait for the new Dipset album to do that.
Is this foreshadowing or just rappers having fun with an instrumental?
In fairness beyond a reasonable doubt it has to be noted that neither rapper dissed Jay.
And i bumped into Free, Stalley and Rashad after the show, and beef with Jay was not the topic of conversation at all.
Stalley’s main concern was that it would be noted that he was freestyling and not kicking a written.
And Rashad and I just talked about him, and Stalley’s upcoming (((ITM))) release.
But Free did have everyone throw the ROC sign up. And it wasn’t for Jay-z’s Roc Nation label.
Whatever the case, here are Stalley and Freeway freestyling over Jay-z’s infamous diss cut “Takeover” here in Columbus,Ohio.

Or maybe none of this means anything, and the true Columbus story is that Freeway is shouting out both ROC and RSE(Rhymesayers Entertainment) home of the Al Shepard.

Rick Ross and Jayz address Freemason rumors. I’m way into Rick Ross’ verse. Shit he was already a prison guard, and took his name from the drug kingpen that sold crack unknowlingly for the CIA to help fund the contras.
Why not be a free mason?
Jay-z uses the song to call people that thought he was an operative of Satan morons.
