Murder Inc. ends fued with DMX and The Game

 

(Sorry for not reporting the news earlier people, consider it delayed.)

Perhaps taking a cue from Jay-Z and Nas, rappers DMX and Ja Rule have ended their long-running feud.

The two men engaged in a years-long beef after DMX accused Ja Rule of stealing his rap style, which he said emulated his coarse, husky voice.

According to WENN, the beef ended after DMX talked to Murder Inc's chief, Irv Gotti.

Gotti reportedly reached out to DMX while he was incarcerated and arranged a low-key meeting that included Ja Rule.

DMX expressed his initial reluctance to cooperate.

"Gotti came to me in jail and said I want to make peace with you and him," the rapper said. "I was like, 'Alright Gotti, let's do it. But I need five minutes in a room with your man. I got to put my hands on him.'"

Despite his request to fight, the men ended the conflict peacefully.

"Gotti sat down and we squashed it. I said he [Ja Rule] got to stop sounding like me."

In 2002, Ja Rule said that DMX was simply upset that his star status had risen considerably since the 90's.

"He can't f**k with me and its hurting him right now that I am bigger than him. I'm bigger than him and he's mad," Ja Rule said at the time. "The reason [for his jealous] is he is a b***h and that's what b****es do."

In XXL magazine (Game Cover Story), Game speaks on how his fued with Murder Inc. was put to an end. 

And what's up with you and Ja Rule? People are going to be shocked to hear that you two are cool. You used to yell that Ja and the whole Murder Inc. label could suck your dick during your shows. Rumor even has it that you two did a joint together?

I wouldn't mind doing a joint with Ja. It ain't like I gotta be scared to say, Oh, I'm doin' a joint with Ja. But I done hollered at Ja on the phone, and he done gave me love and respect for what I did as far as holdin' myself down against the Unit. I done hollered at Irv. Murder Inc. and Black Wall Street done squashed their beef that they had back in the day. Me and Ja, we might get in and do 10 records, if that's what he feel like and that's what I feel like I want to do, you know what I'm sayin'? It's all love, man. I don't give a fuck what people think about Ja. If I fuck with him, I fuck with him. And when I fuck with him, everybody else is gonna fuck with him.

How did the conversation come about, when you deaded the beef?

At the Grammys, Irv came up to me. I was kind of shocked. I be on my guard, man. Irv came up to me. He came to me with his hand out. A Black man come at me with his hand out, what I'ma do, turn away? I shook his hand, man. He told me thanks for what I did. "Me and Ja just wanna thank you for what you did." And, "Let's get money." So I already knew what that meant. It's another beef that I can diminish. Ain't gotta worry about lookin' over my shoulder this way or that way. That's all it is when you beefin'. Nigga can't even sleep safe at night 'less you holdin' a gun, 'less you holdin' your finger on the trigger when you go to sleep. And then don't do that too many nights. You have a bad dream, you blow your brains out.

Lloyd Talks On His Single 'You'

In the words of Ghana-born comedian Michael Blackson (do yourself a favor and cop his dumb-funny new movie "Repos," which also stars Master P): "To make a long story even longer, 20-year-old singer Lloyd was signed to Murder Inc. a few years ago. He left the Inc. during their hiatus/transition, signed with Atlantic through Jazze Pha's Sho'nuff Records, but went back to the Inc. before the ink — pun intended — was dry on that contract. Now that Irv Gotti has a new situation for his label through Universal — yeah, the same Universal Music Group he dissed several months back — Lloyd is poised to make a comeback."

We can't even front: Lloyd's track with Lil Wayne, "You," instantly became one of our favorite singles — maybe even in our top five of the year — when we heard it over the summer in Atlanta. Now the song's momentum is really growing.

"It's a song I came up with, me and my team came up with, over a year ago," Lloyd said last week in ATL. "Wayne dropped his verses for it over a year ago." (Click here for photos from the video shoot).

The song first featured up-and-coming MC Tango Red, and the original got a few spins on Atlanta radio after Lloyd leaked it. After a couple of listens, the singer felt the track was missing something. It turned out to be Lil Wayne.

"I called up Wayne and said, 'You got my back, right? You told me you got my back,' " Lloyd said. "He came through for me and gave me four verses. ... We chopped it up and came up with what we have now. I saw [Wayne] at the video set. I said, 'Man, I just brought it to life, right?' "

Lloyd said his second LP (his debut, Southside, was released in July 2004) will be dropping in either late December or sometime next year. As you know, he's been on LPs by Young Jeezy and Rick Ross during his break from the spotlight. He has appearances coming up on new albums by Tupac and 8Ball & MJG.

Irv Gotti Addresses Vanessa Carlton Fans

Recently, Irv Gotti appeared on Vanessa Carlton's official site forum, to fill her fans in on the relationship he has with 'V'. The post by Irv was confirmed as authentic by Carlton herself.

""Hey everyone. This is Irv Gotti. The president of The Inc Records (formerly Murder Inc Records) home of Ja Rule, Ashanti, my young R&B singer Lloyd and now Vanessa Carlton. This is the 1st time I have ever posted a message or anything like that on a website. I did not even tell V I was gonna do this. I wanted to surprise her. Hahahahahaha. But I wanted to because I believe this is the site that really broke the story of me and V teaming up. I believe V posted something on here letting you guys know she signed with me. So I decided to let my V family here something from me, since I don't know how much you may know about me or my company. I just want everyone to know that I believe V is 1 of the most talented singer/songwriters I have ever met in my life. And I can assure everyone here. Her album sounds incredible and for the 1st time in my professional career. I am totally trusting my artist to deliver her vision. I am gonna be the CO Pilot on this one. And I am usually a Dictator with my acts. Thats how much I believe in our V. If your wondering how me and V came together, stay tuned to MTV. I think they will be doing a news piece on us shortly. Because basically everyone is pretty much interested in how we came together. Which is a beautiful thing. You want everyone wanting to know about whats going on with V. I will say this. And I am not an over the top religious person. But GOD brought us together. :) Funny thing also is after she completely blew me away with her singing and playing that Piano in Doug Morris's office. I went to my top A&R person in the world. The one I talk to the most about artist, to see if there HOT or not. My 14 year old daughter Angie. hahahahaha. Who told me V was off the chain. And knew all her music and was saying, daddy you have to sign her. hahahah. Well bye for now. I just wanted to let you guys know. I am just like you in believing in V. She totally has me caught in her MAGIC! And I will be doing everything humanly possibly to make the world see exactly what we see. That V is the SHITTTTTTTTTT! Talk to you guys again soon.

Love Irv."

"V can have whatever she wants. She already uses my MayTag whenever she wants. Its funny tho. because i roll the windows down and blast Ordinary Day (which i believe is arguable one of the hottest songs she has ever made. the way she is flowing and singing on that. and the words. are all very special to me) and sing it at the top of my lungs. People in the hip hop world look inside and be like hey thats Irv Gotti. and then there like what the hell is he blasting in his Maybach. and i say thats Vanessa Carlton. she is the SHIZZZZNNNIIITTTT! funny thing is alot of people from my culture already know and love V. its weird to me sometimes. its mostly from A Thousand Miles. When we went to London to go hang out with Jay Z. i know she was a lil shocked with all the "Thuggish" type guys that me and Jay know saying how they love her music. hahahahaha. (by the way, there was another lil hint of things potentially to come with V in this message. I'm having fun with my new family. hahahahha."
 
Irv also revealed an amibiguous hint regarding the plans for V, "Heroes and Thieves".

Lloyd said that Irv would be on-set at the video shoot but he said "he's not sure if he'll be in the video cuz he's bringing out the whole ATL". Cameos you can expect to see in the video are T.I., Young Dro-Grand Hustle, Trillville, Lil Scrappy-BME, Young Jeezy-CTE, Bobby Valentino-DTP, Dallas Austin-Rowdy, Cherish-Sho Nuff, JD and SoSoDef, and of course Lil Wayne and Cash Money.

Swilling and chilling on the Irv Boat

Music producer Swizz Beatz channeled the spirit of the bling-spattered party for hip-hop impresario Irv Gotti the other night aboard the 150-foot Utopia III.

"We got about $5 billion worth of people onboard!" Swizzy shouted over the superyacht's sound system as he deejayed on deck and pumped up the volume.

Slipping off their shoes and piling them near the gangway to board Miami Internet moguls J.R. and Loren Ridinger's little boat - docked at Chelsea Piers - were Ja Rule, Fat Joe, Wendy Williams, Damon Dash and wife Rachel Roy, Russian heiress Anna Anisimova and flack Jonathan Cheban, New York Met Cliff Floyd and Gotti's latest protege, Vanessa (call her "V") Carlton.

They swilled Georges Vesselle Champagne, puffed freshly rolled cigars and otherwise basked in their own fabulosity.

"This is the most beautifulest s- in the world!" crowed Gotti, who's been on a winning streak since his acquittal last December of money-laundering charges and his new joint venture with Universal Music Group.

"I'm excited about signing V," Gotti told Lowdown. "I want to show people I know about music - not just hip hop."

The Ridingers - J.R. in a tight white tank top, white dinner jacket and sunglasses (perhaps to protect his eyes from his blinding Jacob the Jeweler accessories) - presided with their 14-year-old daughter, Amber, who ignored the shoeless rule and sported knee-high boots. (Amber's 2005 Miami bat mitzvah reception - to which she wore a $27,000 Dolce & Gabbana dress - featured performances by Ja Rule and Ashanti and was covered by E!, "Access Hollywood" and Us Weekly.)

"Irv's just amazing, and now he's back on top again," Loren Ridinger told Lowdown.

Later Gotti toasted his hosts. "They're like family," he told the crowd. "They came to every day of my trial. I love you, baby." Loren Ridinger added: "Fat Joe goes back a long way with us, believe it or not. Just being here with everybody is like a reunion, and it's really nice to be together." Sadly, the Ridingers' good friends Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez were in Puerto Rico and couldn't make it.

Asked about the yacht, Loren explained: "This is our other boat. We actually have another boat just like this" - prompting J.R. to quip: "We have more boats than brains."

Ja Rule, who boarded clutching an open bottle of Veuve Clicquot, called out to Damon Dash: "Yo! You gotta see my new joint! It's Harry Winston and it's beautiful." Ja, who wasn't wearing his "joint," elaborated to Lowdown: "It's a beautiful timepiece, but certain things go with certain outfits, and tonight was gold night." Ja also buttonholed guests for donations to his LIFE Foundation, which mentors urban kids.

When it started drizzling around midnight, the guests headed inside for shots of Patron tequila and funny-smelling cigarettes. A young man claiming to write for New York magazine passed out in a deck chair. Finally, the party fizzled and the guests poured into Maybachs, Mercedeses and Range Rovers parked on the pier.

Where to?

"I'm married, three kids," Ja Rule told Lowdown. "I might as well have a 9-to-5. I'm not the exciting rapper with the rap lifestyle. I go home at night with the kids, walk the dog, s- like that."

"V" signs with The Inc.

It's Vanessa, to the letter

Stop calling her Vanessa Carlton!

Thursday night, Irv (Gotti) Lorenzo celebrated his new venture with Universal Motown Records on a yacht owned by pal J.R. Ridinger. Carlton, who just signed with Gotti, is now to be called "V" instead of Vanessa.

"V is an old family nickname of Vanessa's, and Irv thought it was a practical decision to use it," explained an insider. "Vanessa says V has always been her name, so it's not really a name change."

Party guest Ja Rule arrived brandishing his own bottle of Veuve Clicquot. "I bought my own [bleep], this is like BYOB," he joked.

If you think about it, we all businessmen. Ain't nobody too muthafuckin' gangsta, 'cause aint nobody John Gotti, and ain't nobody Al Capone, and ain't nobody Tookie Williams. Ain't none of these niggas -- ain't nobody in hip-hop, myself included -- 'bout to go knock on the penitentiary door and say, Give me that lethal injection. I'm 26 years old, man, and I'm the most potent voice in hip-hop right now. The most powerful voice. It's due to all my struggles, my hard times, my admiration for the game and my ambition. It ain't about no beef. It's about me and my fans and making good music.
