Noriega Checks Def Jam For NOT Paying Jeezy’s Bail!!!

Noriega Points out that Labels like Def Jam no longer help artists in trouble like back in the day. In a series of Tweet’s Nore BLAST the hip hop label for turning their backs on Young Jeezy!

CelebNMusic247.com has a series of interesting Tweet’s from rapper Noriega who points out how labels no longer rescue troubled artists in hip hop unless their name is Justin Bieber.

After nearly four days of sitting in the slammer for alleged possession and firearms charge, Young Jeezy was able to bail himself and five others out of jail on $1 million dollar bail.

Hip Hop veteran, Noreaga has been around the rap industry blocks a few times and shared his keen observation on the situation, pointing out how The Snowman’s label, Def Jam used to be more involved with the legal troubles of their artists. However, today they are NOT. 

Noriega Checks Def Jam with his perspective on major labels not protecting their artist anymore via Twitter:

Then he states T.I. was the last artist they helped, saying:

He compares the past to present saying:

What do you think about what Noriega had to say?

Lots of truth there. Do you think Def Jam turning their back on Jeezy had anything to do him bashing the label back in 2013?

Damon Dash BASHES Combat Jack Show

Since his days at Roc-a-Fella Records Damon Dash has NEVER been a man to bite his lip and after hearing former Def Jam president and music executive Joie “Joeyie” Manda interview with the Combat Jack Show he has some words.

Dame Dash has been on personal mission of calling out what he sees as “culture vultures” in Hip Hop. CelebNMusic247.com has leaned that the 43-year-old Vampire Life co-owner’s hit list included music executive Joie “Joeyie” Manda.

See the former Def Jam president visited the Combat Jack show to discuss Dash’s attacking him as well as his early life and his history in the game.

Manda weighed in on Dash, saying:

“There’s nothing going on on my side of it. Dame put my picture up on Instagram a few times, and he said some unkind things which I was really surprised about.”

“I know Dame. We were never friends. Not to say we ever had a problem, but we never hung out.”

He added:

“I don’t know what goes on in anyone else’s brain. I don’t know what’s fueling him. I don’t agree with the things he says, but it’s for him to say.”

Well, Dame heard the 80-minute interview, and he released this statement about Manda and Combat Jack below BLASTING them both:

“So disappointed in @combatjackshow for this lame interview but hearing this culture vulture lie was pretty funny they only spent 5 min of the whole interview addressing my concerns which was the only reason he was up there in the first place… Such a lame thing to do to your fans@combatjackshow hope you enjoyed our interview cause it won’t ever happen again…your now a victim of a culture vulture…look how cool they look by the way…I’m done with this lame whoever has to work under him should be laughing at him in front of him….he deserves to be treated like a liar… He cant remember is to funny to me he had the nerve to say that with a straight face!”

DAAAAAAMN!

Obviously things didn’t go the way Dame thought they should have.

Thoughts?
