Chris Webby – Raising the Bar Part 2

Posted by on October 7, 2010

I’ve held my tongue for too long about Chris Webby. Frankly, I didn’t want to give him the time of day. I’m not really into supporting artists who are self proclaimed junkies. That’s just not really my cup of tea. Plus, I don’t like he how plays the, “I’m so poor card, when my album comes out, please buy it”. Take that low class narrow minded nonsense somewhere else. We get it. You’re an up and coming white rapper with a “hood” complex. Yada Yada Yada.

Then, I come across another illogical thrown together rant on GMAD. Listen up, don’t insult everyone’s intelligence with, “It’s just a joke…”. Are you kidding me? Who else would he be talking about? Mike Jones? Save it. This is yet another desperate attempt to gain attention by a rapper who makes less per show, is less marketable, and has terrible management.

Everyone always loves to hate on Fresh New Tracks for sticking up for Sam. They say, “Why are you on Sam’s jock”? Let me tell you something playboy, we’re not on his jock. We’ve been down since day one. Not only is he someone we admire musically, he is someone who we consider to be a personal friend. We’ve known him way before this music thing. What would you do if you saw somebody putting down your friend? You would do what every decent friend would do and step in and stick up for them.

The main contention between Sam Adams and Chris Webby is that Sam Adams lacks lyrical content. News flash! Sam Adams doesn’t claim to be a lyrical rapper. He’s pop rap. People think they’re criticizing him when they say that. Show me a hit song with Chris Webby on it. Show me a song that’s been featured regularly on MTV. Show me a song that appeals to both girls and guys on a national stage. Show me something that has radio potential. I just don’t see it in his music. Chris Webby’s “bottom feeder” mentality rap is wearing thin and is frankly losing my interest and the interest of labels.

Bottom line, Sam Adams gets a lot of hate. However, at the end of the day you have to ask yourself, “Who is more successful”? When it comes to success, Chris Webby can’t even hold a candle. Is Chris Webby talented? Of course he is. Is he destined to remain a gully bottom feeder rapper that gains moderate notoriety? Perhaps. I just can’t stand the constant barrage of hate towards Sam Adams when Chris Webby has accomplished only half of what he has. Stop with the shots Chris. Not only does it make you look desperate, it speaks volumes about your character.

Fresh New Tracks opinions do not represent those of Sam Adams or 1st Round Records.

    All i gotta say is wow. You really just wasted your time writing all of that? I’m a fan of both, but Webby is twice the rapper Sam Adams is. Looks like even you are just another hater to add to the list. Enjoy the music and get over the dumb shit. HA!

  • yo fuck you

    lol what a dumbass review. Like this guy has any idea who the labels want..he just was on mtv last night

  • Flosstastic

    You are just a hater bro, Webby can spit. Maybe you should help him out cuz he needs to get put in the spotlight with some guidance and he will be the next big thing

  • Gmayo728

    the reason he can hate on sam adams is because in this fucked up rap industry sam adams does become more famous than webby. bottom line is webby deserves it more due to his witty lyrics and nice flow

  • Datcrackaparks

    sam adams is okay but webby is mad lyrcal and hot 93 begged for him during his 1st or 2nd mixtape and even with his new ep he proved he was radio worthy so learn your shit before ypu make a “blog”

    good lord, I know I’m a year late to this game, but shit, I couldn’t agree more with this article. Nice to see Webby’s 8 friends who commented on here pretending to have that weak ass fools back. I saw him at SXSW in Austin at a show and all he did was stand next to me flexing and rubbing against my shoulder as I tried to watch Hopsin perform, it was kind of uncomfortable. Its like he sees someone who is bigger than he is, cant accept that fact, and tries to make himself look bigger than he really is to make up for it. Sound familiar? its because the kid has superiority complex that bleeds through not only in his everyday actions but through his music. Glad Mic Galper ripped him a new asshole… twice

  • preston

    webby is the man

  • HoldItDownForThe203

    I will listen to the shittiest Webby song (Which there is none) over the Sam Adams song any day of the fucking week. By stating “we consider him a personal friend” you showed us all how biased this article is. This is a perfect example of one sided journalism.
