50 Cent Is Upset With Me

He sent me this...

But he doesn't look that tough, does he? I reckon Sophie could whup him.

Music companies are such wankers.
I'll never buy another 50 Cent album again. Ever.

George said...

Why are you playing 50 Cent to a 3 year old? Doesn't he rap about shooting people, and gangstaz and drugs?

Scamp said...

Nah. He just sings "It's your birthday... it's your birthday."

Doesn't he?

George said...

Oh yes - I know the one.
Wow - I can see how you could profit from that, so I think the record company are quite right to pull it. It was pretty irresponsible to put it up in the first place.

Oh. The Beatles seem to be OK with my use of Here Comes The Sun on Jackson's running around in the garden video. I had to resort to that after Ice T went apeshit about my use of L.G.B.N.A.F.

Scamp, you're such a bastard.
I'm a rapper. I don't even hum other peoples music. I know how fiddy feels, I go to silent clubs. I rap internally so no one can hear my shit. I'm not even recording my next album. It's 3.0.

@Nelly I think clubs distribute some of their ill gotten wealth via PRS?

Adam Richardson said...

That's some dope shit. Word home boy.

Just file a claim and it will get 'looked at' and your movie will still be published. They'll never look at the claim and that's how I get around it.

Anca said...

Yes, tell them that it's just an innocent jingle.

faris said...

o lord of mercy. they still do this. sad face.

prince got someone to pull a video of their baby dancing to let's go crazy.


is someone going to find your video instead of 50 cent if they are looking for that track? no.

Is 50 cent going to lose any money because of it? no.

Is it in fact helping to spread his music further? yes.


THIS IS SO STUPID> the copyright wars make criminals of everyone in remix culture.

Lessig's new book on this - remix - is on the money.

'tasty once shot a guy for taking a photo when he was THINKING about smiling' ..

Mr. F. Cent is making an ass of himself. Ludacris would never do that. Ludacris would buy you a drink for using his music.

Nelly is that really you? Remember that shoot on the golf course in LA? And yes, i still have that jacket.

Classy choice if i say so myself:

You can find me in the club, bottle full of bub
Look mami I got the X if you into taking drugs
I'm into having sex, I ain't into making love
So come give me a hug if you into to getting rubbed

Amelia said...

I've heard threats of stuff like this, but never actually knew anyone that it happened to!

Scamp said...

Ah, but f, you're assuming I downloaded the explicit not the clean version. And you know why they say 'never assume...'

At this time of year, I think we should all take a moment to think about the impoverished rappers of the US, many of whom, thanks to the credit crunch and musical piracy, will struggle to buy their hos and bitches the giant rhinestone-incrusted turkeys they so wanted for Thanksgiving.

Boo to Sophie and all the other haters.

Can I join the club?
Tom Waits is upset with me:

Oh. The clean version is much better:

You can find me In Da Club
Bottle full of Bub
Momma I got what you need
you need to feel a buzz
I'm into having sex I ain't into making love
So come give me a hug
If you're into getting rubbed

I'm just messing with you Scumpy.
Wish her a happy birthday from 'f'

music companies and Dorna Sports (broadcast rights to MotoGP racing) are wankers. they pulled my own video that i shot of a race, from the grandstands. WTF?!?

Am I the only one who has noticed the complete inability of any of these 'trendy planners' (Faris, Davies etc.) to offer an opinion without backing it up with a 'BTW> I've read a recently-published book - that you probably haven't read - about this very phenomenon'?

Particularly when the contents of the book aren't otherwise discussed at all, the reference seems only to be there to somehow imply that if you at all dare to disagree with the point made you'll need to take it up with the entire history of the printed word.

Yes Faris, you have a very large bookshelf. Well done you.

Doesn't necessarily make you right though. It just means you agree with someone who wrote a book.
