Who thinks Jay Rock and Stevie stone, who everyone knows are the newest additions to Strange, will last. And for how long? I hope they do. We all know how Strange Music seems to lose so many artists, and after 1 album. Prozak? He was supposed to release another album back in 09, even had a release frame, but then just vanished. Grave Plott? 1 Album. Liquid Assassin? Same. Critical Bill? Same. Cognito? Seems to have dissapeared, too now. Even Skatterman and Snug Brim left a couple years ago, because they weren’t getting enough attention or something. Are all these artists just not selling or something? Let’s just hope these new artists don’t suffer the same fate…
I’m not sure how long Mayday will last, just because I can’t see them appealing to a large audience and getting a lot of sales.
The other two, I think will stay as long as they want, Jay Rock is already getting his fame and his sales are sure to go up through the next couple albums. Stevie doesn’t have much of a buzz at the moment, but he seems easily marketable, he goes hard.
My bad, I thought Critical Bill’s “Downtown The World” was through strange music because Tech, Kaliko and Kutt were in a few songs and SM was promoting it before it came out. Just wish Prozak would just release “The Hitchcock Of Hiphop” already. I loved “Tales From The Sick”. I’d think Jay Rock, too. Plus he just doesn’t really fit with Strange all that much.
Grave plott would b nothin without LA, it was a terrible signing, LA never released an album on strange and didnt have a solo deal with strange, honestly i think that unless its a tech release strange kinda slacks on the promo. Yes they do do alot of promo for all the artists but tech gets at least twice as much promo, i dont think theres anything to worry about
I always thought Jay Rock would leave Strange first. Any rapper can push 5,000 copies. He would fit better on another label. I think Stevie Stone will do pretty good on the label and stay for a while. And I think Mayday will also do good but will eventually sign to a mainstream label.
jay rock was big before strange but he stands to make more money with strange than a big label.. stevie stone is from missouri so i can see him stayin, and the dude has a original flow.. mayday blows.. sign another kc nigga.. ron ron
I think Jay Rock will leave too only because he can get a better deal somewhere else…however next to Tech he is the most well connected person on strange meaning it would be in their best interest to keep him around especially to bring in west coast fans and rappers…like Dre and The game.
jay rock is really popular, if he were to leave, it would be because he built up enough buzz to do his shit by himself. i think alot of people will like mayday when they drop an album on strange. people dont relize how versitile they are, wrekonize shits on most rappers as an mc and him and bernz both can sing/rap watever. stevie stone… honestly his solo work hasnt impressed me much. but i think he can step it up, i’ve heard some stuff that shows potential.
