  3. I DON’T SPEAK VERMIN!! October 18, 2012

    Missy has FLOPPED just like Lil’Kim and Eve bwaaahahahaha… But wait, this b**** Missy came at Nicki for no reason and thought she was gonna knock Nicki off her throne aaahahaha… Both of Missy’s songs did a belly FLOP off iTunes. Now she’s on twitter begging people to request them shits on the radio. Then here comes Eve’s carpet munching ass throwing shots at the Queen (Nicki) but LAWD that Eve song is horrible. Nicki got all these h*** pressed like a spacebar.

    • Sir Vann-Oliver October 18, 2012

      • ImMadAsHell October 19, 2012

        Only one Nicki songs was on itune but she put out 8 singles. & any new features she been on haven’t done s*** on itunes.

        So, please have several seats.

      • FAF October 19, 2012

        Several seats for what, hun ? they peaked some time ago

        y’all haters always wanna say what Nicki doing ..

        Stupid H**, Beez in the Trap, I am Your leader all came out a MINUTE AGO!! We talking about RIGHT NOW!!!

        Missy & Eve not in the charts RIGHT NOW!!

        Nicki is!! PERIOD!!

  4. Stan for the one you love October 18, 2012

    I loved Missy in the 90s/early 2000s, but she waited too damn long. No one is checking for her 90s style production style and tired rapping. It’s a different musical climate. I’m not a Nicki Fan, but she basically set the blueprint for today’s rap industry if you want to be successful – you need to basically do 10 features a month on other people’s tracks and do tons and tons of videos, appearances, crazy styles, product placement, etc. There is NO time for talk (“I’m going to release an album next year”). No sweetie, if you were following Nicki’s plan, that damn album would’ve been out yesterday and the re-release would already be planned. You’d have the whole strategy for the next 14 months. Missy has never experienced the “new music industry” – last time she put s*** out, people were still buying CDs. You could just “wing it’ when it came to your promo because there was no other rapper out than Lil Kim and no competition from social media. The only choice we had was to watch BET because there was no internet to find alternatives. Yes, she was a musical genius in the 90s, but that was over 10 years ago. She’s going to hustle like Brandy if she wants to have her comeback. Missy has a very entitled attitude but the thing is that NO ONE OWES HER ANYTHING.

    • vel October 18, 2012

      Missy has been behind the scene producing s***…get ya facts straight… missy kno what it is…

      • FAF October 18, 2012

        Behind the scenes does not = solo success

        y’all didn’t buy cookbook… GTFOH

      • Sir Vann-Oliver October 18, 2012

        @FAF yea we did….which is why it’s certified platinum the RIAA…

      • msteefromdc October 19, 2012

        @FAF, DO YOU KNOW THE SONG WRITERS AND PRODUCERS MAKE WAY MORE MONEY THAN THE ACTUAL ARTIST..U DUMB ASS

      • sharon October 19, 2012

        @FAF JUST EXCEPT THE FACT THAT MISSY IS GETTING HER MONEY! Missy has had solo success. shes one of the most SUCCESSFUL RAPPERS EVER! Yes u may be right, her singles maybe flopping, her album might flop but she will STILL be getting them f****** checks because of what she do. she about to work with QUEEN B behind the scenes! Missy may never have the success she had before especially in this day and age but you have to admit she is/will be successful behind the scenes or not! 30 MILLION RECORDS SOLD IN THE US ALONE BOO BOO!!

    • Sir Vann-Oliver October 18, 2012

      Yeaaa….I’m pretty sure she’s produced several Hip-Hop/R&B hits in the “new music industry” a la Monica, Jennifer Hudson, Fantasia, Jazmine Sullivan. I think she knows what she’s doing….she’s not trying to conform to today’s music industry. Putting out new songs everyday…she’s about longevity, which is why she has had a pretty successful 20 years in the game. Just sit back and watch it all unfold….and enjoy!

      • Stan for the one you love October 18, 2012

        Yes, she wrote two moderate hits for Monica nine years ago in 2003 for “After the Storm,” but the other material she contributed to other artist’s releases have been album filler. None charted. Thanks!

      • FAF October 18, 2012

        @Sir Vann-Oliver

        No its not, hunn it’s gold 😀

        Missy has 6 albums, 5 platinum 1 gold 🙂

      • Sir Vann-Oliver October 18, 2012

        @FAF

        I stand corrected! Although, I could’ve sworn I’ve seen it written all over the place that it was certified platinum…maybe that was in terms of shipments??

        @Stan for the one you love

        -“Let It Go” x Keyshia Cole didn’t chart? (It peaked at #1 on HH/R&B and #7 on Hot 100)
        -“Everything To Me” x Monica didn’t chart? (It was #1 song on Hip-Hop R&B chart for 7 weeks in 2010)
        -“Holding You Down (Goin in circles)” x Jazmine Sullivan didn’t chart? (It was #3 on HH/R&B in 2010)

        Now, “Until It’s Gone” x Monica peaked at 22 on HH/R&B but I’d say Missy definitely produces HH/R&B hits!

        As far as her solo career, I think this new album may take awhile to get some legs because it’s different from everything else, it’s not popular….but the video and time may help people see where she’s going. Anywho, don’t be so negative. Missy has obviously been inspired by something to come back on her solo tip as she’s already a decorated vet, nothing to prove to anybody…at the end of the day: Promote who/what you love instead of bashing what you don’t!

    • DMWN October 19, 2012

      You idiot. Missy’s last album was in 2005-2006…and at the time there was iTunes, there was social networking (Twitter, Facebook, Myspace were all in existence then), and there was YouTube. And LOL(x10)@you saying there was no internet then. Are you serious? The Internet has been around since the early-mid 80’s and has been a standard in homes all across the world for as long as Missy has been around. Your ignorance is bliss. How old are you, 12? Hush.

      Missy, Eve nor anyone else has to follow Nicki’s tacky template, and throw themselves on more features than their own songs. That’s called desperation. She should already be planning a re-release for an album that hasn’t come out yet, you say?! Seriously?! Nicki is re-releasing her album because it hasn’t sold worth a damn, and they’re trying desperately to stimulate sales with this stunt. Missy’s last album sold more than Nicki’s latest — and that was Missy’s poorest seller. And in the meantime, Nicki only has one song in the iTunes top 100…and that’s sitting at #70, so tell me again how this pop-rapping cartoon is running the show? An album that has only sold 630k (which is awful) and only one single on the charts, which is nearly out. She’s barely treading water.

      LOL@you acting like these returning females need to tear a page out of Nicki’s silly little pamphlet. No they don’t. Missy and Eve have already seen “success” like Nicki, and their best efforts toppled hers commercially.

      The only place Nicki is really successful is online — on Twitter and silly ass blogs. And really, who cares? You can keep that. The buying public has never been in awe of Minaj. Her record sales have never been anything explosive or impressive, she’s never dominated the scene and she’s already struggling to maintain what little bit of noise she created.

      When Nicki puts out an album that goes 4, 5 or 6x platinum in the U.S., moves over 10 million units WW, has multiple singles in the top 20 (and at least one at the summit) and is able to renegotiates her record deal for some record breaking figure…then you can claim she’s some kind of template for others to follow. Until then she’s no one to look up to, or try to pattern oneself after. Nicki’s success is not at all awe-inspiring or explosive. She’s basically riding the fence of this “wave”, and her career won’t survive after it’s over.

      • msteefromdc October 19, 2012

        WELL DAMN I LOVE IT..U HIT THE NAIL ON THE HEAD

      • FAF October 19, 2012

        who actually reads all this tho?? LMFAO

        U Pressed, spacebar 🙂 🙂 calm down, hun

        Nicki winning… You mad? 🙂

  5. FAF October 18, 2012

    CAN WE KEEP IT ABOUT MISSY & NOT ABOUT KIM, EVE, NICKI, ETC????

    I WANNA SEE HOW MANY REAL MISSY FANS IS IN HERE…. DON’T LET THESE TROLLS DECEIVE U … LOL

    • FAF October 18, 2012

      BY TROLLS, I MEAN PPL THROWING THE QUEEN NAME IN THE MIX TO GET YOU TO TRY AND THROW SHADE !!! 🙂

    • GRANDROSE October 19, 2012

      Excuse me, but it was a Nicki Minaj troll who brought her into the conversation in the first place. No one was taking about her until one of her minions threw up her name in an attempt to slander Missy, because he/she/it feels threatened by the presence of another female rapper.

      • sharon October 19, 2012

        Well it would be easier if SOMEBODY WOULD STOP MENTIONING NICKI’S NAME EVERY GOD DAMN TIME!

  6. Lola October 18, 2012

    Matt Babel Is Soooo HOT! Since His VJ Days On Much On Demand In Toronto!!!!

  7. Sarah Says October 18, 2012

    All people talk about on this blog is Beyonce, Rihanna, Nikki like all mainstream music is the only music and if you don’t have no:1 slots you’re a flop but fail to see that some of the best albums didn’t sell millions or go to no:1 but are still great albums. Some people have musical dignaty and want to stay true to their sound and fans so continue the legacy of their sound. SWV – I Missed Us didn’t go to number 1 on the billboard chart, and might not sell millions but is still one of the best albums to be released this year but because of the genre didn’t get free promotion via various media outlets. Nikki is a 95% pop with 5% rap and image is created. I’s really silly to compare the two

    • FAF October 18, 2012

      No one is slaying them,

      We saying if u love ur fave, support them!

      Get off nicki d***!

      I’m tired of ppl crying & complaining about “NICKI NOT THIS, NICKI NOT THAT..” but their so called faves need their help & they not supporting!

      We got eve who dont give a f*** about her fans, less than 300,000 followers on twitter with her last flop, EVE-Olution talking wreckless & yet she’ll “DESTROY NICKI!?”

      But where is her single on the charts? Where is her promo? her video? her appearances?

      Same w/ Missy! Why aren’t y’all supporting her?

      • vanny October 18, 2012

        @FAF yassss hunny let these b****** now!!! the same thing that happened to brandy will happen to missy and eve…. all these so called #1 fans are so fast to jump on blogs and diss nicki … but when it comes to spending money and supporting they artist they never do!! im not worried we shall see on the first week sales *blank stare*

      • DMWN October 19, 2012

        The same thing can be said about Nicki. Did you buy her latest album, or do you spend all your time on blogs trying front while not actually picking up her s***? I ask this because her current sales are shitty. 630k? And she’s supposed to be some kind of “It”-girl. Missy and Eve are long past their peaks. That’s no secret, and no one expects them to have their best sells back again…but when they WERE the toasts of the town, they were doing better than what Nicki is now…

      • msteefromdc October 19, 2012

        NICKI IS DONE..SHE COULDN’T REACH A MILLION SELLS ON HER 2ND ALBUM??? I MEAN DAG…SHE HAS PLATEAUED IN HER 3 YEAR OF BEING OUT…HOW SAD…SHE HAD ALL THIS HYPE AND BUZZ ABOUT HER, I THINK PEOPLE GOT TIRED OF THE MEDIA SHOVING HER DOWN OUR THROATS AND THE MEDIA OVER-SATURATED HER TO THE POINT NOW THAT WE’RE SICK OF HER, AND PPL AREN’T CHECKING FOR HER ANYMORE. SHE JUST DID WAYYYY TOO MUCH WAY TOO FAST.

      • sharon October 19, 2012

        Hey, i may not be a nicki fan but i do agree and respect that comment because it is the truth!! #Creditwhenitsdue

      • FAF October 19, 2012

        @msteefromdc *blank stare*

        It’s platinum WW, hun… GLOBAL SALES 🙂

        And it is certified Platinum in the RIAA

        Missy on the otherhand, cookbook is not platinum after 7 yrs?

        Lil’ Kim last album aint gold after 6 yrs?!

      • XoMoDe October 19, 2012

        Stop trying to snow the s***. Nicki’s “platinum” certification is nothing but a bogus technicality. They prematurely certified it to cover up for it’s not selling. Platinum worldwide is just as pitiful. Adele sold over 20 million WW, but all Nicki could muster is 1 million and you stans have the NERVE to try and boast about her and act like she’s got the game on lock????? ROFLMAO! A joke. Nicki’s sales are a joke! I wouldn’t say it would be difficult for Missy to match her Nicki’s current #’s cause they s***. Nicki is a FLOP. Yeah Missy might be a flop now too but the difference is Missy was once a HIT, Nicki NEVER was. 😆

  8. TeamEveandMissy October 18, 2012

    To haters: Missy knows what she is doin. Do u actually think she been sittin on her ass doin nothin…..she been workin her ass off behind the scenes makin hits for all ur fave artists such as katy perry,monica,fantasia,demi lovato,jcole etc. So believe me she knws what type of music climate this is. She don’t like it so her and timmy bout to change the game just like they did all those years ago. The stuff u hear today sounds the same with the same features. Nicki is no queen….the only reason billboard got y’all thinkin that is bcuz she had no competiton no other female rapper wuz mainstream. Eve,lil kim and missy were out at the same time and they still had platinum albums and hits no youtube no itunes so get ur s*** str8 b4 u speak. They takin their time not just puttin anything out4 da hellof it. Now watch them werk b******……

    • FAF October 18, 2012

      But……. why is that her fault? 🙂 She knows what she’s doing & she has no competition… THEREFORE SHE’S THE QUEEN! 🙂 🙂

      That’s like saying “only reason Obama is the prez is b/c Mccain & palin sucked…”

      Ok, AND ????

      • FAF October 18, 2012

        And Eve flopped during the Lil Kim era (3rd album) soooo…. LOL

      • RandomBlogReader(RBR) October 18, 2012

        “That’s like saying “only reason Obama is the prez is b/c Mccain & palin sucked”

        There’s actually truth to that!lol

      • msteefromdc October 19, 2012

        HEY FAF U DUMB ASS…THEY ARE BASICALLY SAYING. IF YOU HAVE NO COMPETITION U WIN BY DEFAULT….BACK N THE 90’S AND EARLY 2000’S THERE WERE PLENTY OF FEMALE RAPPERS…ALL GETTING MONEY…ALBUMS GOING PLATINUM OR BETTER, AT THE TIME WHERE FEMALE RAPPING HAD UNITY…NOWATDAYS NICKI THINKS SHE CAN BE THE ONLY ONE OUT…AND IT’S SAD TO SAY SHE’S THE ONLY ONE OUT (COMMERCIAL WISE). AND ALL THESE YOUNGINS COMIN UP DON’T HAVE A CLUE WHAT REAL HIP HOP IS, AND THEY THINK NICKI IS IT. THEY REALLY SHOULD DO THEIR HOMEWORK.

      • FAF October 19, 2012

        REAL HIP HOP BEGAN IN 1979.. THEREFORE “GANGSTA RAP” WHICH ORIGINATED IN THE 90s IS NOT REAL HIP HOP NEITHER!!! Y’ALL MAD COMING UP W/ EXCUSES… LOL

        ADMIT ITS THE QUEENS TIME & MOVE ON!!!! 🙂

  9. TeamEveandMissy October 18, 2012

    Did I say it wuz her fault? No,but she got the big head and became hot easily its not like she had to work hard. Some of u fans wuz ready to hear a femcee in the game again so y’all gravitated to nicki. She takes shots at all these females bcuz they weren’t out but she want do it now that they r back. Eve had trouble with her label missy wuz sick but she still made hits for everybody else. Lil kim so much wuz goin on with her but she cookin up somethin but I also don’t thin lil kim wuz a queen either I. Liked foxy over her until foxy started takin shots at everybody just like nickis doin but nicki got remixes she’s done of all these ladies songs.

    • FAF October 18, 2012

      Kim used Nicki’s “Did it on Em” on her mixtape prod. by Bangladesh, so she using Nicki….

      Lil’ Kim used to say she was the QUEEN & called foxy “DooDoo Brown”

      (Which is ironic b/c Foxy was the better rapper who had her own success) but Lil’ Kim was more mainstream (Like Nicki is today) & ppl said Foxy was a “HATER”

      Foxy only took shots when shot at!

      Let’s not forget kim went to prison for tyring to get Foxy set up at hot97 after she dissed her ,, Kim has a HABIT of being PRESSED over other FEMCEES

      only reason missy wasn’t a threat is bc she sang as well

      Ironically, fast forward to today everyone is calling kim “JEALOUS” “BITTER” and “OLD”

      But why are Lil’ Kim fans now saying Nicki is “POP” yet back when ppl called Kim “POP” when she went against foxy, they was mad?????

      There is a double standard!!!

      Ppl liked kim & respected her b/c she came in the game w/ BIGGIE..

      Not to get off topic, but where is the HIP-HOP in Kim’s “kitty box” or “Right now” ????

      after Biggie died, so did her best lyrics ! PERIOD !

      • msteefromdc October 19, 2012

        KIM WAS ALWAYS A BETTER RAPPER THAN FOXY….KIM MADE PLENTY OF FIRE HITS AFTER BIGGIE DIED…QUIET STORM…MAGIC STICK…GET DEALT WIT…WHO SHOT YA…ALL ABOUT THE BENJAMINS..SONGS WE STILL BUMP TIL THIS DAY..EVERYBODY CAN RAP RIGHT ALONG TO KIM’S SONGS CUZ THAT’S HOW MEMORABLE THEY ARE. JUST ONE OF KIM’S BARS SHITS ON ANYTHING FOXY OR NICKY WILL EVER TRY TO DO. Y WOULD KIM BE JEALOUS OR BITTER OVER SOMEONE THAT STOLE HER SHYT AND TRIED TO RUN WIT IT??? NICKI IS A CLONE..HOW CAN SOMEONE BE JEALOUS OF A DUPLICATE? MAKES NO SENSE. KIM NEVER BEEN PRESSED OVER ANY EMCEES PERIOD..HOW ABOUT THEY WERE PRESSED OVER HER. SOON AS THEY GET A BUZZ THEY GOTTA TAKE SHOTS AT KIM…CUZ SHE WAS THE TOP AND B****** WAS TRYNA BRING HER DOWN. THAT’S WHAT U CALL HATERS. KIM ALWAYS LIKED MISSY, DA BRAT BECAUSE THEY WERE LOYAL REAL ASS BYTCHES N THE GAME AND REAL RECOGNIZE REAL…SHE WAS COOL WIT FOX AT ONE POINT N TIME BUT FOX STARTED SMELLING HER FUNKY ASS SELF AND STARTED THROWIN SHADE…SO KIM SAID F*** HER. AND AS FAR AS KITTY BOX AND THE OTHER SONGS KIM MADE SONGS LIKE THAT BECAUSE SHE’S NOT AFRAID TO TRY NEW SHYT. ALL HER ALBUMS SHE DID NEW INOVATIVE SHYT…AND THAT’S WHY NICKI HAD TO CLONE HER.

      • FAF October 19, 2012

        She didn’t write them, though… She copied Eminem’s flow on “Quiet”

        Ti’s flow on “get yours” and “I know you see me..”

        IRONIC? BECAUSE THOSE ARTISTS WERE FEATURED ON THE SONGS W/ HER… SHE DOESN’T WRITE, SHE PRETENDS TO.. & Y’ALL BELIEVE HER LIES .. lol

  10. theman October 18, 2012

    People really need to get over this people buying albums crap. People do buy albums, the ones they want. Missy was still doing good no matter who was out. Her last album is gold/platinum.

  11. bibi93 October 18, 2012

    Classik s***!!

  12. vanny October 18, 2012

    i still have hope for missy tho ! even tho her songs are not doing good all she needs to do is come out with a hot video and some hot dancing!! i have been a huge fan of hers since day one and something tells me that we have not heard the best from the album… that laugh and confidence can only mean that she gonna bring the heat wich i hope so cause she needs to come hard if she wanna go against nicki … we shall see……

  13. the real xoxo October 19, 2012

    “Supa Dup Fly” is a classic! one of my favourite albums ever.

  14. JER October 19, 2012

    I just want a new Missy album. She should just call it Greatest Hits and have it be an album of all new songs

  15. FAF October 19, 2012
