By | 21 Comments

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/04/shyne-releases-three-more-freestyles"> Apparently L.A. Reid is out at Def Jam. And the harbinger of doom himself, Shyne, is here to tell us why. Shoot up the club, <a href="http://theurbandaily.com/music/theurbandailystaff2/shyne-confirms-la-reids-imminent-departure-from-def-jam-exclusive/">Urban Daily</a>: You’re talking about Lucian Grainge who replaced Doug Morris.

Dear Def Jam, Nas Has Words For You

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/04/shyne-releases-three-more-freestyles"> After spending an exorbitant amount of dollars <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/04/shyne-releases-three-more-freestyles">to recruit Shyne Po</a>, I was under the impression that Def Jam and current sitting duck <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/la-reid">L.A. Reid</a> had an endless supply of money.

Has L.A. Reid Lost His Mind?

By | 70 Comments

<a href="http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/1632456/20100223/shyne.jhtml"> Here at TSS, we get a lot of music submissions. We go over them all with a fine-toothed comb. As is customary in this line of work, a lot of the things we get are mediocre to bad. Generally, we pass over these songs to give shine to the material one or a few of us genuinely enjoys. We don't go around bashing submissions. That’s not our style. If these songs would have come to us from any other artist, I would have listened, said “wow, that’s really bad,” and keep moving. However, these tracks aren’t from any artist. These songs are from someone who has just been signed to a (reported) <a href="http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/1632456/20100223/shyne.jhtml">million-dollar contract</a>.
