This was a really cool read. Complex sat down with Young Guru and he revealed 15 interesting things you may not have know about Jay-Z; like Jay-Z had to rush Kingdom Come because of L.A Reid and he’s actually nice in basketball. I think my favorite is what he said about him and Kanye. -Thanks 2 Dope Boyz
…Jay has been wanting to put people out, like, ‘Here, I’m giving you your start.’ But he’s not gonna do the groundwork for you, he’s not gonna run around and make the meetings for you. You’re gonna have to do all that yourself…
Remember Easy from Outsiders? Well, he now goes by Silantro Bleu and he just released a project. It’s a small 2 song EP called CAPSTONE. Its good. I like his vibe.

I respect this dudes grind…this is a tight track too! Fuck My Job: Life In Reverse drops May 23 on iTunes. Enjoy his preview video and the song “Champion” below.
True story I was calling my next project Life in reverse and then I switcherd it to FuckMyJob. Then this past week I had to actually quit my job just so I can make it to my SXSW show. The project is dropping in May. -Ryshon Jones
