Poor Sammy Adams…

19 May

I first heard about our Boston boy Sam Adams through The Boston Herald and I quickly youtubed him to see what he was all about.

Within 30 seconds, I knew immediately we had a Justin Bieber of hip hop on our hands. And he’s not even hip hop! There is so much local talent in the Boston scene and THIS due gets recognized?? The reasoning behind it, in my eyes, is he appeals to all the people who aren’t true hip hop heads. People who like to dance to the beats, and can sing along, but otherwise, it’s for the fans who aren’t dedicated to hip hop, but rather to other genres. He’s catchy and appealing to a lot of high school/college kids who couldn’t tell you who their favorite MC was outside of Young Money.

I found this, although it is a bit outdated, and felt like it was appropriate to share:

La Coka Nostra’s Slaine Says Sam Adams, “Is A Threat To The Foundation Of Real Hip-Hop”

Slaine, of the rap super group La Coka Nostra, has voiced his concerns about the success of rapper Sam Adams and his new EP “Boston’s Boy”. Earlier this year, Sam Adams came under fire after accusations that he bought his way to the top of the iTunes hip-hop charts. Slaine has released the following statement:

“I think over the years you can see I’m not a hater, but this dude is actually a threat to the foundation of real hip hop street music,” commented Slaine. “He’s never paid a due and has no respect or knowledge of the culture. If this is hip-hop’s new direction we are in trouble and he is about to get backed by the biggest powers in the game. He seems like a nice kid, but on principle I gotta cut his head off. Sorry Sammy, but Boston’s boy is about to get banned from Boston. There is a reason that credibility is important in hip-hop, and it was so something like this couldn’t happen. Right now we’re letting some rich white college kids with a scheme and a huge bankroll come in and jack the entire street culture and turn it into some bubble gum frat bullshit. Watching what this kid is saying in interviews, it is extremely clear that he has no respect for hip-hop as a culture. He is even saying he invented his own form of music! Are you tripping? Sam Adams is bad for the culture and art form. He’s bad for your business, and bad for my business. Sam Adams is bad for Boston and bad for hip-hop.”

La Coka Nostra is currently touring in support of their debut album, “A Brand You Can Trust”.

Thank You La Coka Nostra for hitting the nail on the head.

And as I leave you with that, check out “The Uprising”, Cypress Hill’s new mixtape.
