Thug Misses - 99 U Ain’t 1

Thug Misses pops off like a little gun while rapping on hot new single ’99 U Ain’t 1’

VALLEJO, CA – As a half-Black, half-Latina female artist trying to make her way in the music industry, Camille “Thug Misses” Carlos has faced her fair share of challenges. Like a lot of other women in the industry – especially those within the hip-hop genre – she feels like she hasn’t always gotten the credit she deserves. That’s not to say she’s proud or even bitter about some of the things she’s missed out on throughout her career – in fact, she’s quite humbled by the opportunities she’s been given. But to say that it’s been effortless and without challenge is inaccurate. She’s overcome a lot of adversity as a woman in the industry, which she chronicles on her latest hit single “99 U Ain’t 1.”

Why Did No Limit Records Breakup?


In 2004, the reorganized label had moved to Koch Records for distribution. From 2004 to 2005, The New No Limit Records issued new albums by Master P, Silkk the Shocker, C-Murder, Lil' Romeo and the reformed TRU.

These are just a few events that happened during the rise of No Limit Records. Percy “Master P” Miller had one of the most historic runs in Hip-Hop with his No Limit Records enterprise. Beginning in the early 1990s.

The Truth Behind Cash Money Vs No Limit Records Beef


Cash Money Records and No Limit Records were both two of the largest hip-hop powerhouses in New Orleans. What people don’t know is that the beef started before both camps really started blowing up.

Anybody that been a follower of deep dirty south music knows about the history or the turf rivalry that been going on between Cash Money and No Limit Records.

Artists such as U.N.L.V., and BG started off the war by going at Mystikal on songs like Drag Em in the River and Fuck Big Boy. The beef would take a turn for the worst on the street level when one of the artists was killed sitting in his car.

How Master P Survived A Decade Of Music

Mystikal waited until he released his 2nd album Mind of Mysikal to retaliate to the Cash Money disses and he did in a major way putting out one of the best songs of his career with Beware: The track not only showed that Mysikal wasn’t a punk but he can also get down and dirty with the best of them as well.

The Mind of Mystikal ended up opening up doors for Mystikal and his career as he would go on to find bigger success by signing to Master P and No Limit Records in 1997. Cash Money meanwhile would continue to build their underground following with releases from B.G, The Hot Boys, and Juvenile.

The beef would die down briefly but 1998 was the breaking year for both camps. Master P after all of the hard work that he’s put in with his consistent releases from himself and his camp would finally catch the big break as he released Ghetto D with his smash Make Em Say Uggh.

Cash Money Records signed a deal with Universal worth 30 million records along with keeping 85 % of their royalties and 50% of their ownership and publishing. This was the big break Cash Money needed and now with the big financial backing, They could finally compete with Master P and No Limit.

The rivalry started heating up once again starting with Juvenile’s album as they would take subliminal shots at No Limit on Rich Niggaz, UPT, and Welcome 2 the Nolia. No Limit artist retaliated with the songs Beef and The Empire where he speaks on the Industry and other labels hating on No Limit for their success.

1999 was the year Cash Money truly reached their peak and No Limit started to lose steam. P was focusing more on doing movies, managing athletes, and trying out for the NBA while in the meanwhile Cash Money was continue to steamroll into 1999 developed from the previous year.


Cash Money continued to crank out the hits while the No Limit sound was starting to fade away. P has never been the type to really battle on wax. He was more of a street type of guy or the type of guy that would send his soldiers to handle his dirty work like a mob boss.

The beef took a very controversial turn when this group called Da Wild Boyz released a diss song/Video on the whole Cash Money camp. Its been said that these guys were affiliated with No Limit and the song ended making some local noise.

TWUM Talks Lil Wayne


The beef would take more violent turn as there have been rumors of physical altercations between both camps. There have been instances where the beef went violent as C-Murder stuck a gun in juvenile’s mouth and had Cash Money artists tuck in their chains.

Both Mystikal and B.G. would end up having personal issues with P and Baby respectively. Mystikal got caught slipping and started sleeping with C-Murders girlfriend at the time Monica. Master P heard about it and sent his goon squad to stomp Mystikal out thus leading to his exit. B.G and juvenile on the other hand left Cash Money claiming that Baby stole royalty checks and tour money.

As for who won the overall rivalry, Many would say Cash Money since their still around but nevertheless this rivalry would go down in hip hop history as one of the most violent in hip hop.

CMR was responsible for launching the careers of Lil Wayne, Juvenile, B.G., Drake, Nicki Minaj, among others and NLR was responsible for catapulting the 504 Boyz, C-Murder, Fiend, Kane & Abel, Master P, Mia X, Mystikal, and Silkk the Shocker to stardom.

Turk was quick to state that no tensions existed between the artists on the respective labels, instead pointing the blame to label heads Master P and Bryan “Birdman” Williams.

Cash Money vs No Limit! How did Bird make his artists last longer than P's Nolimit artists? Some say Bird and some artists were heroin users and heavily caught up in the street life while still keeping secure hood and industry connections 1hunnid.

Now others say Master P was a ball playing finesser that went to the Bay area and learned some things about independent rap sheets and came back home and secured the start of the New Orleans major rap scene.

What Happened To The Fugees?


Some of the most painful feuds emerge from once-close relationships, including the bitter dispute that led to the breakup of The Fugees, one of the greatest artistic collaborations of the past several decades. The group's second album, The Score, was a massive hit, a timeless masterpiece that straddled the borders between rap, hip-hop, R&B, and rock.

A third album never arrived. Lauryn Hill temporarily left the group before The Score's 1996 release, most likely due to her turbulent romantic relationship with bandmate Wyclef Jean, who was married. The next year, Hill started seeing Bob Marley's son, Rohan. She became pregnant and, according to Jean's memoir, lied to him about the child's paternity.

What's Your Favorite Kid Rock Track


Kid Rock has been one of my favorite Top 5 rock stars for years. In a career spanning over 20 years, Rock's musical style alternates between rock, hip hop, and country.

Kid Rock Net Worth: Kid Rock is an American multi-instrumentalist, music producer and actor who has a net worth of $80 million dollars. He has had arguably one of the unlikeliest success stories in modern rock music.

Kid Rock began his professional music career as a member of the hip hop music group The Beast Crew in the late 1980s. Heavily influenced by the Beastie Boys and their classic Licensed to Ill, Kid Rock's debut, Grits Sandwiches for Breakfast, was released in 1990.

So now, the Wrap-Up Magazine would like to know what is your favorite track by Kid Rock? In 2008, Kid Rock had his biggest hit to date with "All Summer Long". It reached number 1 in eight countries and hit number 23 in the United States.

Our members and family chose "Only God Knows Why" as the selected single to showcase from Michigan artist Kid Rock. This song took America by surprise and will always remain his biggest hit next to Cowboy if you ask us!

Who Is The King Of Rap?


How do one put a label or tag someone as the king of rap? How do you mix classic rap tracks with today's style of music?

Tupac would probably be the most influential rapper of all time, while Eminem holds the record as the highest selling artist.

The first “Rap” song to ever hit the radio was a joint called “Rapper's Delite” by a group called the Sugar Hill Gang. Rapping first gained popularity in the U.S. in the 1970s as a kind of street art, especially among African American teenagers.

Rap music is cited as the biggest music genre in the world with some of the best selling artists ever. From MC Hammer to Biggie, the Beastie Boys to Eminem, these are the best-selling rap albums to hit music stores.


The Wrap-Up Magazine wants to debate with you on who is the greatest rapper. Everyone has their own opinion on who is the best. Leave a comment below and be sure to share.

Whether it's spitting a flow on the stage or competing for the No.1 spot on the Billboard charts, hip-hop artists are always getting into some type of battle.

While some people are still debating who the king of R&B is, Gucci Mane is mulling over who is the king of rap, and according to him, it shouldn't be the genre's previous champion Eminem.

Like it or not to be the king of rap you have to achieve both commercial and artistic success, and it really matters how much a rapper has sold.
