    Hey I guess if you never want your music to come out, join Atlantic and sit on your ass while your album gets shelved for not doing exactly what THEY want. (see Lupe Fiasco)

  • David

    Great.. He'll prolly get the Saigon treatment

  • kal

    Thing is Wiz got wayyy more buzz than Carrera Lu has been blowing up for a good minute so I highly doubt Atlantic would shelve the opportunity to make a buck even if its a quick one

  • RKO

    Unlike Lupe, Wiz doesn't have much talent.

  • http://www.myspace.com/t Robbie Gaynard The III

    Wiz has been associated with Atlantic for a while, I guess it was just never official.

  • Drizzy Dreidel

    ^Talent doesn't sell records anymore.. mainstream appeal does.
    Atlantic takes business decisions, I doubt they care what real hip hop fans think..

  • lars

    atalantic????
    as long as he stay real, no problem with me

  • EZWiderroller

    i got a bad feeling...

  • JaySpaceE

    First XV getting signed now Wiz good summer to be an independent rapper

  • http://1100ideas.tumblr.com mC

    Why people have sell-out, nation-wide tours and THEN sign is completely beyond me, didn't you already accomplish what getting signed helps you do? What did he have to gain with this move? Imma just assume the check was fat as hell.

  • jay

    atlantic shelved saigon and lupe please wiz dont go to atlantic

    sadly this is true

  • SS

    lol, Meka caught feelings and had to defend his cracker pal who writes his checks.

  • Lee

    @mC EXACTLY! What you said is 100% accurate. Wiz should listed to some Pimp C verses. There's NOTHING TO GAIN from having some middle man picking their share off the top when you have the power to do it all yourself.

  • http://twitter.com/bigtris216 tris nigga!

    Wiz and Curren$y my niggas but they hypocrites....they was talkin shit about major labels and sayin they wasnt fuckin wit em now they both signed to majors

  • Rezo

    Who cares Wiz is just another talentless rapper who talks about nothing in his songs. He should have signed with YM he would fit right in. Ask Wiz to write a song about something with meaning and his pothead brain would give out 3 bars into the song. These record labels would rather sign popular gimmicks rather than actual talent. It's very sad and this is why hip hop is a joke now.

  • http://thisriotlife.tumblr.com/ this RIOT life

    @tris nigga!

    in WHAT song do they talk shit about major labels? I ain't never heard one of them say "fuck [insert label]" or "I ain't signing no label because minimal exposure is where I want to be".

  • http://twitter.com/bigtris216 tris nigga!

    they aint say it in song nigga they said it in interviews...fuck the wack world is what they was sayin in which they were talkin about major labels....do yo research

  • Benny Blanco from Da BriX

    ^^^^^^^I'm pretty sure Curren$y said "fuck the majors" or "Fuck the labels" in a song before. Can't remember right now, i'll get back to you.

  • RealLincolnParkBloodz

    shake and meka are lame wiggers who only support fag indie music, lupe fiascos farts >>> meka and Shakes lifes
    Wiz been signed to Atlantic tho so good luck to him

  • Benny Blanco from Da BriX
  • http://twitter.com/bigtris216 tris nigga!

    @Benny Good lookin nigga!

  • Benny Blanco from Da BriX

    "shake and meka are lame wiggers who only support fag indie music"

    Actually, Meka is black. & Shake isn't a lame wigger, he's just a lame white guy. If you've actually seen him & heard how he speaks, you wouldn't say he's a wigger.

  • RealLincolnParkBloodz

    I know Meka is black...but hes still a lame wigger.

  • http://twitter.com/bigtris216 tris nigga!

    and u can still have minimal exposure and be signed to a major label....Curren$y album Pilot Talk only sold 10k and he's signed to Def Jam, his independent efforts did better

  • oneandonlyCODY

    a real fan would chime in and say that they did in fact say that..

    "don't fuck with major labels they law ball ya"

  • crackadon

    i support Spitta and Wiz, but they have been bullshittin. they've talked shit on majors in a few songs. the most recent one was Curren$y's "Breakfast" where he spits:
    "guess I can keep these two cents in my pocket
    and back to these underground rap dollas
    refused the majors and stayed real I kept my promise"

    how can you spit that when Rocafella/Def Jam is putting your album out? huh?

  • oneandonlyCODY

    Exactly. Doesn't surprise me.. Shouldn't be a surprise to any of you really.

  • earl.e.

    Spitta also said "For the record, fuck a record deal" on his lemonade freestyle.

  • els

    As long as they realize what his demographic is and they don't force him to put out party joints and make him put out half a dozen Say Yeah esque joints

  • http://www.myspace.com/willieallenproductions Willie Allen

    Wiz and Spitta have definitely talked shit about major labels, but hey, they'll get a lil more marketing and exposure, plus Wiz has a nice fanbase. In sayin that, I think Wiz will only get one album on Atlantic tho. Unless he has a "Nothin on You" type of hit or some shit like that.

  • Omar

    Spitta said "Fuck the majors, stayed real and kept my promise."

    Now both are signed, but you know what? I dont give a shit, they gotta eat too. Spitta sold a pathetic 9k first week.

    Taylor Gang or Drink Venom, bitch!

  • aHometownHero

    curren$y defintely shouldve stay independent cuz i doubt he release a second album off Def Jam...but i think Wiz has the sound to reach a wider audience b/c i already know a shit load of white preppy kids in the burbs that bump his shit and thats where the record sales are at.

  • aHometownHero

    but it should be said that if Wiz doesnt do everything Atlantic says to do he'll get shelved just like Lupe is right now.

  • JoeyBurnz

    Taylor Gang or get signed to atlantic records and never drop an album. Wait a minute FUCK!

  • http://www.thebackpacked.com Zach P

    I find it funny how Lupe keeps getting brought up on this site.

  • Fucktthemalls

    Actually I thought spitta was still independent and that def Jam was only distributing it? I'm confused

  • lak3rzf4n

    JoeyBurnz... best "Taylor Gang or..." phrase I've seen yet.

  • Q

    just wait til that lupe shit happens to wiz... he will be outta there as fast as he was out of WB

  • http://www.yaboyrampz.deviantart.com/ YaBoyRampz

    No Spitta got a DISTRIBUTION deal with Def Jam, he's not a signed artist and still under the BluRoc imprint with Dash. Man people need to learn their shit. Also we do not know if that's not the case with Wiz too so chill till all the facts come out.

  • 1234

    ^^^
    what he said. damn.

  • My Momma Told Me To Say Fuck Yall

    Shouldve Stayed Indie Cuz..

    1. His album is goin to get push back
    2. Niggas is goin to hate em (not true fans) cuz he's goin to go commerical.
    3. And didnt Atlantic already fucked him ova once?

    But anyway congrats nigga.

  • qman

    Atlantic records is signing too many up and coming rappers.it's sad because they are going to fuck a couple of people over. Better not be Wiz though.

  • stan lee

    wiz is going to sell.. that's obvious.. south florida loves this nigga so i know he will have sales from us..

  • Roth

    did everyone miss the ROSTRUM part of RostrumXWizXAtlantic. It's more than likely just distribution. Why does everyone hate on your favorite rapper signing to the majors? Wahhhh they're eating and have money to blow wahhhhhhhhh
    smh.

  • BrokenEmpires

    your a fucking dumb ass.....lupe, BUMP J, Saigon, MISTAH FAB so on and so forth. antlantic is not the label to be in.... when will they learn. they know not what they do.

  • http://joshuatureaud.wordpress.com/ M.E.A.N.

    yo that mtv cut they did with wiz today was dope, wiz never said shit about mainstream lol, he even said he got some club records ready.

  • Freshone

    HAY DUMB NIGGA CURREN$Y DID NOT SIGN TO DEF JAM IT IS A DISTRIBUTION DEAL ITS WAY DIFFRENT THAN A LABEL DEAL THEY HAVE NO SAY IN THE CONTENT OF THE ALBUM THEY JUST PRINT AND PRESS U CANT HAVE PHYSICAL COPIES ALLOTHER THE COUNTRY WITH OUT MAHOR LABEL DISRTIBUTION

  • AM

    they both need to go with live nation

  • i4c1o2

    wtf. i guess this is ok but i wish he would have done it just with Rostrum.

  • TGOD

    at the eend of the day, wiz is gana have the Taylors behind him (meaning fans too) major label or not. if your not you were never a fan to begin with. whoever said wiz isnt talented is a idiot..seeing that wiz has his own sound and style..if you dont like wiz just shut the fuck up and dont take the time to click on it and leave a comment. pretty simple id say..

  • http://pardonthedopeness.blogspot.com DP

    one thing in life I want to do is lead a cult. This nigga has his own cult and I respect that shit. New World Order in this bitch.

  • MACMETALFACE

    damn wiz this shit blow'd my high , but i'm drunk on music and I'm glad my nigga spitta did his shit under radars n still flew high with sells. Currensy been my life's composer since sophmore year.

  • westcoastaggie

    Atlantic isn't going to be making money off any of @realwizkhalifa's albums BUT Atlantic will make money off his touring and any other ventures he does. If some how @realwizkhalifa does sell records, it will be icing on the cake for Atlantic.

    They will do him worse than Warner Bros. Did him. #Fuckthemajors!

  • midnightkat

    That was a cute little lupe line in there lol.

  • eMBeeGe (pronounced MBG)

    damn, can ya'll quit hating and be proud of wiz (and spitta).

    yall complaning and bitching isnt gonna change anything. yall not cutting his check. and at the end of the day, yall gon support whatever he (and spitta) put out.

    be easy!

  • yep

    @MACMETALFACE True he did well under the radars but I dont see how you say he did well with sales... He sold 9k units or something in his first week which is a huge disappointment. In my opinion why not go major?

  • Keens

    Karmaloop.com use repcode 'russ' for 20% off!!!!!!

    SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO WIZ...WUT HAPPENED TO "WACK WORLD" HUH NIGGA???

    Hope they don't fuck em over like Lupe... Too much talent.

  • http://twitter.com/bigtris216 tris nigga!

    Distribution deal is still being hypocritical in Curren$y's case cuz he said he wouldnt fuck wit majors at all....he on his independent shit buy it is what it is yo

  • http://twitter.com/bigtris216 tris nigga!

    and how many of yall real fans bought Pilot Talk? cuz its obvious alot of his fans who supported his free music didnt support him on his 1st major effort

  • arif

    lmao @ 'asinine petition.'
    meka choked on shake's cock last night, hadta put down lu as compensation

  • Joe.

    ahhhh i hope he made the right decision.

  • http://newschoolfire.blogspot.com Monroe

    haha wiz has a huge following. why on earth would he sign with a major? moron.

  • BAWSE

    yall niggas don't read. The shit says ROSTRUM x Wiz x Atlantic. If thats the case, it's probably just distribution. And I remember there being rumors of Wiz being signed to a major even before Kush & OJ dropped.....wasn't it Atlantic???

  • Actual/Factual

    Guess Wiz wasn't aware of Rule #4080?

  • TheJamaica420

    A lot of Wiz's Fanbase comes from his grindy real talk music, which mainstream isn't, this might be bad for him but He a grown ass nigga, he gonna do whatever the fuck he seems best for him, let him do his thing.

    Being independent is great and all but it takes you a longer time to get those right connections and stack those "Commas", I guess dude felt like he needed to take a make it or break it risk. #LetHimDoHim

  • Erik

    Fuck Meka and Shake's poser asses. I love this site, but stop hating on Lupe.

  • Derek

    Dame Wiz should have stay independent : hope they dont fuck him over. -TGOD Okayyy!!!!

    tris nigga! said this on July 30th, 2010 at 11:42 pm

    DUDE, EITHER YOU'RE A HATER OR YOU'RE JUST DAMN IGNORANT. A DISTRIBUTION DEAL AND A RECORD DEAL ARE TWO DIFFERENT THINGS. DO YOUR RESEARCH BEFORE YOU TALK ABOUT WHAT IS HYPOCRITICAL. WHETHER THE TAG IS AMALGAM DIGITAL OR DEF JAM SHOULDN'T BE THE DAMN POINT ANYWAY, THE POINT IS THE MUSIC.

    AND WIZ BE SOUNDING JUST AS COMMERCIAL AS ALL THAT OTHER SHIT THAT TALK ABOUT THE SAME TOPICS WHETHER HE'S INDEPENDENT OR MAJOR. IT'S NOT LIKE WE'RE TALKING ABOUT MF DOOM OR CHARLES HAMILTON. WIZ SPITS SOMETIMES, BUT HE'S NOTHING SPECIAL TO ME.

  • http://Gofuckyouself.com Stophatin

    Go ahead and hate on Spitta and Wiz, bitches. Yea Spitta only sold around 10k is first week, but that doesn't dispute the fact that Pilot Talk is the shit and yea I bought a copy. There's plenty of good shit that sits on the shelves and as a matter of fact there's plenty of others that don't release albums at all. The truth is a majority of you clowns would rather listen to shit over quality music anywise and if you don't believe me turn on the radio.

  • http://A.COM FUCK

    I DONT CARE, I STOPPED LISTENING TO WIZ WHEN ALL THOSE DAMN BEANERS STARTED TO FIND OUT ABOUT HIM. KUSH AND OJ WAS FUCKIN WACK IF YOU A TRUE WIZ FAN THEN YOU SHOULD ONLY LIKE HOW FLY AS THE BEST .

  • Jay

    Cosign w/ Stophatin

  • jumua

    if you guys look at it wiz already has a huge following and loyal fans he doesn't need a fan base the only reason wiz is sighning with Atlantic is to put out a real big album where he could make sales why would wiz sell out when we all know he could be big without a record deal and he knows that too i don't think wiz is gonna change.

  • http://www.facebook.com/wizdome Wizdome

    Atlantic has a history of f*ckin artists over. Nas being a major one he talked shit about them all the time. Little Brother is another one.

  • Jay Rocket

    Even if Atlantic tries to Fuck wit him he still got hes Old Friends t Rostrum

  • Jay Rocket

    Fuck the Hypocrite shit. as long as they Make Real Music when there Signed then were Good Specially Curren$y Spits Real BARS hes not gonna make No Stupid Gay Mainstream Bullshit that everyone else is doing, So calm down Guys. Sometimes the Road Changes for Everyone. you act like you never changed your mind before in your life. But you all are right Never say Fuck this and Fuck that then later on your turn out to do it yourself.

  • The fuck?

    Fuck shake and meka you bitch ass niggas gonna intice and diss Lu and his fans but get mad when we call you out that's some bitch shit don't say something slick if you don't want us callin you out and then we come to this site we give y'all hits and you gone diss us fuck you ungrateful ass niggas I'm not coming to this site anymore there's other hip hop websites that ain't run by bitch ass niggas that diss the people that keep this site afloat

  • Yatti

    Big fan of Wiz but I highly doubt he'll do 500k. The retarted kid yall calls Spitta, LOL he sells 9k cause he's trash.

  • doyourresearch

    Unless you are aware of the terms in the contract Wiz signed, you don't really have any business commenting on this post. After being the #1 trending topic on Twitter, Google, and selling out a nation wide tour, Wiz was clearly given a huge signing bonus and alot of creative freedom from Altantic. They usually offer 360 deals to artists. Wiz on the other hand, didn't sign a 360 deal.
