Master P is shrewd and real when it comes to his street philosophy. “It don’t pay to be dumb” is such a truth. It’s funny how simple truths at times seem to have such a profound effect,
Master P was one of the trend setting entrepreneurs in this music game and on The Breakfast Club today he asked a key question that many hip hop artist try to avoid. If you’re so hot and you’re getting it “like a boss” then why don’t you fund yourself and keep all the money. Why give up 90% of a hit song (if it’s a hit).
Many artists are real comfortable with “Rent To Own Fame” and want to cry when the bill comes in (#WTF). If you want to get all the money, then you gotta put up the bread and do the work. It’s that simple. Once more Master P keeps it real,
One thing no one can say is that Rihanna is a coward (#LSMH). Rihanna will always make sure that you get something different (can you imagine her and Kanye in the studio with Paul McCartney. #LSMH #Classic).
This is a great cut (some of Rihanna’s fans might get caught off with this one but best believe this is a great song). I applaud Rihanna for being brave enough to allow her fans to see her on a different level (and it works).
Kanye delivers with this song and Sir Paul McCartney penned great cut. It’s funny that there are those out there who didn’t understand this song (Is you pallet for music really that limited?)

Man a lot of folks in this music thing love to live a lie (and they really don’t want me to put their sales numbers up #LSMH). That’s why I love numbers, because if the metrics are right and in place, Number don’t lie. We here at GetAtMe “Love the hit song”, period. So when we review and handicap future hits, believe me, it’s about being right, winning and a passion for the music. That’s why we’ve decided to keep you updated with the daily sales numbers of some of our picks.
The 3 we picked aren’t in heavy rotation on radio (shit FloRida don’t even promote to urban radio) and the fans have spoken quickly by casting the ultimate compliment and vote, a BUY.
FloRida’s “GDFR” came in at over 6000 download a day (estimated 42,000 for the week) and Nicki Minaj’s “Feeling Myself” came in with over 3000 downloads a day(estimated at 21,000 downloads for the week), Rae Sremmund’s “Throw Sum Mo” came in with over 2000 Downloads a day (estimated 14,000 a week). Congrates and
Alright here is this week’s GetAtMe TopTen. Just so you know the way we come up with our top ten is based on BDS spins, online traction/dj reports, and actual itunes sales figures. We combine those figures to arrive at every ones score based on their charts position. This gives us the most comprehensive and accurate mini metric chart out. No fluff just real numbers. By being aware of the hit music this will give new and upcoming artist a real idea of today’s fans appetite. Here we go.
Big Sean “IDFWU” goes to #1 (with very strong sales figures…) and Nicki Minaj’ “Only” blast in at #2 (great sales and radio…). Trey Songz’s “Touchin Lovin” comes in at #3(very quiet rise, could have hit #1 if it would have better sales) and at #4 Beyonce’s “7/11” (Bey & Nicki, great combo….). At #5 is Usher’s “IDontMind” (great song…) and at #6 is Neyo’s “SheKnows”. At #7 is Rae Sremmunds “NoType” and at #8 is DefLoaf’s “TryMe”. At #9 is Chris Brown’s “NewFlame” and at #10 is O.T. Genesis’ “CoCo”.
At the end of the end of the day you need sales and radio to reach the top. Radio can drive a buzz but fans are only gonna buy what they want and sales at the end of the day is the ultimate trophy.

Yung Dre has a dream, he wants to entertain. Yung Dre has a mission, what can he do to come with a viable solution to homelessness (I know, a real surprise from the hiphop community these days #FRFR).
He’s not trying to steal ya girl, he’s never sold weight, and he hasn’t kicked it with all the AList video models across the world (he feels he has a bigger mission...), he hasn’t been to prison where he could obtain his degree in HARDNESS. He really doesn’t care about others opinion (unless you’re on his team). I mean with all these he ain’ts, how will he ever make it in hiphop?
I mean will he have to go to a club and blow all his advance money so the girls a think he’s a real n*gga? Or will he have to lead a major drug cartel in a gang, you know duck tape them lames for flexin…). No Yung Dre wants to do it the old fashion way, entertain.
I mean this guy has no stunt in him at all. He just works hard and delivers. The fight in this cat is admirable and he has a "get it done" mentality that is gonna be the foundation for him winning. You know the saying, “it ain’t the size of the dog, and it’s the fight in the dog….” Well Yung Dre not only has the fight in him but he also has the hunt in him (“this dog hunts...”. While other’s try to buy and stunt their way to RENT TO OWN Fame. Yung Dre wants to entertain his fans and grow real fans. He wants to make his fans have all of those magical moments that when they’re older they’ll tell their young ones, “Now that Yung Dre, that’s a performer...”
Witha big vision (helping the homeless) and the fight for his dream, Yung Dre has his work cut out for him and you know what, he’s gonna make it because other’s( like myself) will recognize and respect this young man’s GROWN MAN.
