Hustlin’ Backwards????

Jay-Z recently discussed rumors of him bouncing from Def Jam:

So I gotta ask you: It’s December now. How are you feeling about your contract at Def Jam? That’s coming up soon.

You know, it’s active. We’ll see how it turns out. I mean, we’re close. So we’ll know in the next couple of weeks how it turns out.

The New York Daily News said last week that talks were stalling because you made some big demands. Is there any truth to that?


So from your perspective, do you think you’ll be at Def Jam next year?

Yeah, I think — I don’t know. Let me not even say that. I don’t know. We’ll see how it goes. But seriously, it’s not about money. That’s really the last thing. Of course, as a person that does these type of things and puts his heart and soul into it — and it’s effective, as the Grammys would indicate — you want to be compensated for what you do. But it’s really not about money. It’s really about the future of the music business, and not wasting anyone’s time. I don’t ever want to sit in a seat just to sit in a seat. I could be off doing something else that’s beneficial to the future of the music business as well as myself. So it’s not about money! I mean, you couldn’t pay me enough. And I don’t mean that in a cocky way

Some people say Camel is hustlin’ backwards by getting another “job” but we disagree. The truth of his success is enough to shoot down the critics. Oh yeah, a new 40/40 is opening up in Vegas at the Venetian.

We just want the old man to put down the mic.

    Leave Jay-Z alone that’s my boy…

    Not news, but God bless Jay for being a helluva artist. One of the best MCS(if not the best ever), but CEO of Def Jam??? How’s this? Redman’s album was supposed to be fire, and to the best of my knowledge, it flopped. How’s that?

  • wow

    Why should he retire?!? Let that man get his money and be happy!

  • Keepin' It Real (D'Original)

    Ya’ll be killin’ me though when you call him “Joe Camel” on the regular but when he dresses up ya’ll call him “Joseph Camel”…

  • Combat Jack

    i vote he keeps the mic in hand.

  • G-Roc

  • Jelani3000

    You want the best to put down the mic? Why? Because he’s 38? As long as the music is hot, why does it matter?

  • besttiffany

    Put his mic down… are you carzy? Yes he may be old, but that doesn’t cahnge the fact that his music has substinence and is still better than the buggle gum music that has invaded the radio these days. Super man dat ho’, I mean come on the song made me dance, but it didn’t make a bit of sense. Leave Jay alone.
