No Limit Sports Management (NLSM) is a branch of No Limit that deals with sports agency for athletes of all sports. They take care of contract and endorsement negotiations and make sure the athlete is taken care of. Most of the athletes under the negotiation of No Limit Sports Management right now are players in the NBA and CBA, but recently they added NFL star running back Ricky Williams. Also, most of the athletes come from less forunate and underpriveleged childhoods in the ghetto. This way NLSM can in a way understand their past and problems and help them strive for the future

Concentration Camp - Dog Ass Hoes (C-Loc Records/Priority, 1998)

Despite the offensive title, the second installment of the Concentration Camp’s compilation series, this one inappropriately titled Da Halocaust (how did they ever clear that?), had some serious heat on it. This same Concentration Camp would go on to birth Boosie’s career a few years later (check their patented gold frames on his first album cover). But IMO this was their best work, in tandem with Young Bleed’s debut and C-Loc’s Ya Heard Me which all dropped in ‘98 (C-Loc and Bleed had a lot of momentum thanks to P’s jacking of “How Ya Do Dat”) 

That was a good year for Louisiana hip-hop as a whole if you think about it. The Tank was on top, Cash Money had just entered the big leagues, and these CC guys down the street in Baton Rouge were making noise below the surface. This joint in particular featured Laylo (Max Minelli’s group) and C-Loc, and seems to have been pretty much forgotten. 

Happy Perez was a beast as well.

50 Non-Chicago Rap Songs I Enjoyed In 2012

Since I spend most of my life writing about, researching and enjoying Chicago rap music, I figured it was only right I talk about something else for a change. I don’t get many opportunities to write about rap outside of Cook County (I hope to do more of that on this tumblr in 2013), so in the spirit of year end lists, here’s my final one: 50 non-Chicago rap songs I enjoyed in 2012.

I’m sure I forgot a few joints, but whatever, I’m in a hurry and tomorrow is the last day of the year. No commentary, just songs and links. A welcomed break from the click throughs. Mama I’m so sorry.
