What I meant with regards to the 808's question was that the songs on that album were more from a man's perspective - I never said the songs don't appeal to women all together.

Don't defend yourself nigga. Let them feel how they feel.

Bria Britan said...

Damn, thats foul as hell with the Degrassi situation. Its kind of like wanting to get rid of a puppy once it starts to loose its cuteness

Dae said...

ur music is great.
ur sound is awesome. i admit i was a little disappointed u weren't asked to be on the VIBE top ten freshman cover but once i read ur article from complex the other day i saw your point of view. anyways hip hop has been in need of a artist like u for a while. now ur here. its ur time & i know u wont disappoint. we're generation NEXT aka a force to be reckoned with. so congrats on ur current success and im praying for the journey u have ahead of u. :)

Wasted Talent said...

Great interview. I don't know why people always want to put you in a box. Make you pick a genre and stick with it. Emo-rap? You're just Drizzy. Can't they see that lol.

Sweet Lainie said...

Dope interview. I think its respectable that you are very forward and forthcoming about yourself. I think you definately deserve a Grammy for best new artist...and a high school diploma!

D.Davis said...

nice interview ... Charles hamilton named Drizzy as his #1 leader of the New school on his blog >> chuck is real nice but i prefer drizzy.....

It's all Brown Sugar baby... ~*Muziq 4 Da Soul*~ said...

Thats whats good...

Degrassi is STILL a very good show but because the old cast has basically moved out (or evicted as you might say) it's not appealing to me anymore. plus theres the fact that Im just a tad bit too old for it! ("Wheelchair Jimmy" will always have a place in my heart tho! lol) but anyways... keep ya head up baby boi! you got this! keep it authentic and kill em...

Karate KID from Neptune said...

Read the interview as for the apology to the EX i guess i would of been like "im sorry that you inspired me to make one of the tightest mixtapes out right now." Not alot of people get a shout out ya dig! she should be thankful he didnt tear her a new one or disrespect her like 50 or any other rapper out there regarding there X's you know but that my two cents

im out ^_^

Whitney said...

Please Listen! I just want you to hear what I feel!

things that make you go hmmm said...

LMAO,

Well Mr. Graham it seems as though you have been looking for attention from me for so long sooooo...YOU GOT IT!!

Let me introduce myself....This is THE EX! Yup, Mr. Grahams ex! You know the one he half heartedly refers to in all of his interviews lately.

It always amazes me how fans can just take anything their favourite rapper of the month says and ride with it, but I guess that's how this so called INDUSTRY goes, those with the VOICE are those with the so called truth. And to be honest I guess I can’t knock the hype because I'm guilty of it myself at times, it just is what it is I suppose.

Isn't it cute how I got a...what was it "shout out" someone mentioned, I suppose, it would be except when it’s based on lies so that our friend can feel better about himself.

People can/will obviously believe what they want at the end of the day but imma say my piece once and for all and hope Dribble leaves my name out of his career once and for all.

Its one thing to have an opinion, even if it IS based on one’s self made insecurities, but if that then becomes my fault and you didn't feel good enough that's on you and is also sadly immature. On the other hand, it is then completely different when you’re lying and making implications in your interactions with people, be it personal, interviews, songs, on the net, etc. If your gonna tell the so called FULL truth you might want to tell your fans that we haven't been together for almost a year and you R STILL dwelling on our rship.

With all the women in your life you'd think that you would be over it by now and have moved on... you might also want to mention how YOU are steady calling and txting ME trying to get me back into your life, to at least be a so called friend (with fringe benefits of course!). Unfortunately, for you I don't get down like that, I have entirely too much respect for myself. I am much to intelligent, strong and beautiful to EVER be degraded to those levels. THANKS!

Be real! If your gonna "Say what's real" telling the world you leased your phantom and didn't graduate high school is all fine and good to make your credibility look solid and shit but be REALLY real, if you are claiming to be honest with your fans, you should try being honest with yourself first.

Don't go around telling the world I'm looking for YOU when up until THIS Sunday you felt the need to call me from your favourite restaurant in the middle of dinner with your friends and beg me for even just a dinner with you, if that’s all you could get. "It would be just one night of my life" I recall you saying.

I can't understand how you’re looking to have someone in your life that supposedly did you so wrong? I mean if I did all the things your claiming why would you even want me in your life? If your being honest why don't you tell people that YOUR looking for ME and not vice versa seeing as I've been asking you to leave me alone for a very long time now and you just keep persisting.

I have nothing against you, per se, I just don't like liars. And YES if you can go out of your way to try to publicly talk bad about me there's nothing wrong with me asking for a public apology to clean the slate. All actions have consequences in life; I know you don’t think you’re an exception to the rules.

You can and probably WILL try to twist this into something else which is fine and just like you. I just wanted to finally put my side out there, unfortunately I don't have a mix tape to defend myself so I'll settle for this :)

As I've said before take care and I wish you the best but all I'm asking is for you to stop lying about me, what one would assume was a simple request. It’s clear that your still hung up on me (or you simply have some kind of issue) because I don't see why you are still going on about this otherwise. I truly wish that you would find a way to find closure sooner than later! Hehehehe no pun intended...thanks for the "shout out" though. I never had a mix tape made about me before...soooo hey that's one for the books.

Please make no mistake this is NOT on a hater tip either, I think Drizzle is immensely talented and deserves all the success in the world musically and I AGAIN wish him the best. Putting that aside, on a personal level if you wanna put things out there about people - especially when you’re still privately trying to keep them in your life why lie? I mean why act like you’re the one being sought out when it’s not true? Or that you were so done wrong by when you weren't?
hmmmm.... Is that the cool thing to do these days? I'm not quite sure, but I do know that its kinda whack that with all the so called richness in your life and you being in that "place" that you say you're in, you know the "good place"? and with you having gotten yourself together and rid yourself of all the negative things in your life, you are still living in the past and still asking for me in your life, because as your mixtape states I WAS one of those negatives? No?

Just something to think about...You know, just putting it out there.

I guess your theory of me being a gold digger doesn’t work either seeing as you had NO WERE NEAR the money you have now, then, and I still don't want to be in your life. If I AM a gold digger that would make me a pretty inefficient one wouldn't it? You can be rich in money all day long my dear but if you’re not rich in GOD, love, happiness, truth, and self it will all fall apart one day.

So with that being said let's see how long it will take for you and your "staff" to erase this! Or, for you to write another song and use this as part of your lyrics as a comeback.

I'm not going to rebuttal anything else you or anyone else has to say about this situation (either on this blog or in real life), quite frankly it bores me and as I said I simply wanted to put my side out there and now I have. I do realize this is YOUR blog and I’m sure your fans will not have a very positive reaction to this but hey this is an open forum for any thoughts and you so frequently give yours so I just thought I should include mine as well.

In the future if you’re gonna be real, be COMPLETELY real. I'm sure your fans will still love you if they know how hurt you really were/are in loosing me, but, to bash me, is not attractive, or cute, especially when there is no truth in what you’re saying.

I really do wish you the best, we had some good times and some bad times just like anyone else, but that's life, so please stop being so dramatic! It would be greatly appreciated. I mean if you’re looking for a friend in me or attention from me you’re definitely going about it in the wrong way. It is however a great way to lose friendships! With that being said please don't contact me anymore, I've moved on and so should you.

Good luck and God Bless

Signing off UR EX ;)
