'It Could Never Be War Blud'

'A gentleman is one who never hurts anyone's feelings intentionally'. So says Oscar Wilde. While admirable in sentiment, there is a distinct lack of gentlemen in this music and just as well since, after months of grimey vacuousness, the latest tiff between Dot Rotten and Little Dee doesn't only provide entertainment but an element of surprise that, for once, hasn't been contrived by Wiley.

Initially the origins of the in-fighting were unknown, despite Logan's inquisitive proddings into the sitution live on Kiss 100. Remembering Nancy was present, he subsequently donned the gentlemanly act and discarded the persona of the nosey Year 8 who wants to know who dissed the bre from Year 10's mum, suggesting whether it would be best for Littles to explain in person. The offer was embraced by P-Money and Blacks, sniggering at the illicit nature of the hostility between their own crew members.

I've always quietly rated Little Dee. He's a bit hit-and-miss with the bars but when he gets them right they're good, approaching subject-matter in a different way. Under the mission objective of sending he came out firing, pissed and bamboozled by a sneaky Dot laughing to himself while making tunes for him in the early hours of the morning. He could have kept quiet and dealt with it in private but he passed through adamant on Westwood, with the host probably not having a clue what was going on.

'Yeah, you know what Dot Rotten he did a tune for me and hid it in the studio but I felt like he had the audacity to do that for what I don't know we was in the same crew'.

Verbatim. The monosyllabic, stream-of-consciousness thought does suggest sincerity and, if this is true, he has the right to be baffled. The use of 'audacity' genuinely had me in stitches so, even if it doesn't strictly come under the 'war', Littles gets bonus points for that.

Points of note include 'I'm an OG but a guy's pissed 'cos I write and bar more', 'bring out the tazer and stun him with Voltage', and 'I'll send Dot Rotten where Young Dot is'. Desire counts for much but content can't be ignored and, personally, I do find 'my last mixtape was shit to me, but you're last mixtape was a skit to Dee's' hard to bear. Can you really say that when Dot's free download is held in generally higher esteem, in addition to R.I.P Young Dot? The refix of 'I know who you've been listening to' was good, but 'I heard some Wiley kicks in Bazook' was reckless. I felt he should have stuck to lyrics and not beats, since the beat is instantly recognisable as a Young Dot production. I personally hold Er Yeah, Bazooka, and Bread and Cheese in higher regard than Dee's career as a big name in the scene to date, so he should have left it still. Or maybe I rate Dot productions too highly...

Rotten's reply was odd, with a message of 'too hood to care star' interspersed with digs of 'you know I'm a star in the making... you're just a par and you're hating'. Dot produced two tracks and featured on mic on Don't Let the Name Trick You, yet 'you're CD it got borrowed'.

Despite the half-hearted response hopefully round two is coming soon. Where's this going? Are OGs in meltdown? Who cares. Enjoy it for what it is while it lasts.

Definitely believe that which you said. Your favorite reason appeared to be on
the net the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people
think about worries that they plainly don't know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
