Joe Budden and the good folks at Loud.com had a conversation about the Royce Da 5’9 situation.  There are two parts, the more important part is the second link.  The official stance is: If Royce says Joe’s name once more in a negative manner, it’s on.  Keep it on wax, and I think this will be a good battle..

Joe Budden weighs in on his current situation:

to those of you who have been patient enough to bear with me……

padded room started out as a transitional album for me, and amalgam as well, they knew very little about me and vice versa….. once the album was completed, both parties were so excited about the final product that we were both willing to do anything in our means to raise awareness, tho i’m not happy about it being pushed so far back, i do understand the method behind the madness…. we’ve got an album that i’m extremely proud of, and a lead off single that we’re both very happy with, but for those of you who are just as anxious as myself, i apologize…..

which brings us to “halfway house”…… i will be releasing a prequel of sorts in late october featuring about 14 new records, i then will do my best to get this big mike tape out in december, and somewhere in between i’m gonna have a conversation with royce, on wax, just to ask a few questions to the guy……

again, sorry for the hold up..

Halfway House, the album before the album in Oct.

Big Mike Mixtape, with freestyles over other people’s beat in Dec.

Padded Room, the official album in stores FEB. 24TH, 2009

and maybe a Royce diss too.. 🙂

BallerStatus / Willy Northpole / Tha Advocate prepare DIGITAL DYNASTY Vol. 2 September 10, 2008

After a successful first outing with our debut free mixtape series Digital Dynasty, BallerStatus & Tha Advocate are gearing up for Volume 2.

They’ve enlisted DTP’s newest signee, Arizona’s Willy Northpole, to serve as host, and of course, grace them with a few exclusives and heaters to end the summer off right, while their resident musician/writer Tha Advocate will play mixer and other duties.

Willy’s excited, so you should be too.

“We gonna end the summer off real proper, man,” said Willy. We gonna showcase hip-hop to R&B, signed or unsigned, it really don’t matter. We gonna showcase good music, ya dig?”

Digital Dynasty Vol. 1, hosted by G-Unit’s own Hot Rod, did over 60,000 downloads, and was featured all around the web, from RealTalkNY to ThisIs50.com.

“So many people made our last volume a success. It was featured on many other websites also. That proves in itself that it was a hot joint,” Tha Advocate says. “This time around we are taking no prisoners. We got DTP’s Willy Northpole to host the joint. If you rap, sing, and tapdance … then holla at me.”

For those interested in submitting material for inclusion on Digital Dynasty Vol. 2, contact Tha Advocate at shadowfalinx@hotmail.com.

Here is a special message from Willy himself, so you know it’s official!
