A big time producer who goes by Jaywan and who allegedly has an inside scoop in the hip hop industry was quite busy on Twitter Wednesday. The Grammy-nominated producer, who has worked with the likes of Young Jeezy, 2 Chainz, Trey Songz, Lil Boosie, Nipsey Hussle and more, addressed several rappers and their music business dealings.
In one Tweet, Jaywan called out Wale's lack of big hits, tweeting, "Let's talk about how @Wale fell off the Billboard 200 after only 3 weeks and not coming close to sniffing Gold again."
Another tweet blasted Kanye West for his upcoming appearance on the Jimmy Kimmel show despite their previous feud. "Let's talk about the f**kery that is Kanye West. He basically threatens to kill Jimmy Kimmel and now he's going on his show next week," he tweeted.
He addresses many more rapper issues, including claiming Trinidad James only received an $80,000 advance and will never actually drop an album on Def Jam.
Check out all the juicy tweets up top.
When Nipsey Hussle announced that he would be selling his new mixtape "Crenshaw" for $100 a piece, fans and artists alike scoffed at his puzzling move. Despite the peculiarity of the situation, Nipsey explained himself and gave decent reasons for why he chose to go through with his "I Am Proud 2 Pay" campaign.
At least one rapper was feeling Nipsey's move. Jay Z reportedly bought up 100 of the 1,000 copies Nipsey is selling, and if you can't do math, that's a whopping $10,000.
Hov posted a picture of the 100 copies of Nipsey's tape on Life and Times, confirming the rumor.
"I have over 400k followers on Twitter 140k on Instagram and 400k on Facebook, but what good are they if they don't mobilize around my releases?" he explained to RapRadar. "If only 1,000 of those people are engaged to the point of brand loyalty then that's who I'm focused on."
Nipsey owes Hov a big thank you.
