71 comments :

  1. LMAO.. I WONDER WAT JD WOULD HAVE SAID IF THE CAMERA WASNT ON. IF U DONT KNOW IN 04 JD WAS HAVIN A LIL BEEF BETWEEN HIM VS. DR DRE & TIM. EMINEM, DR. DRE & TIM EVEN HAD A DIS TRACK AIMED @ HIM WITH EMINEM.

    THE SQUASHED IT & IT WAS DONE. BUT WHAT MAKES NO SENSE 2 ME IS Y IS HE BITCHIN. ON THE MTV AWARDS JD WAS ASKED HIS OPINIONS ON WHO SOULD WIN PRODUCER OF THE YEAR & HE SAID "TIMBALAND, BECAUSE HE CHANGED THE GAME THIS YEAR".

    SO CAN SOME1 TELL HIM THT THE REASON HE IS ON THE COVER OF BILLBOARD IS BECASUE HE IT TIMBALANDS INSPIRATION & HANDY MAN 4 THE NEW SOUNDS. THIS YEAR ALONE TIM & DANJA HAVE BEEN ALL OVER THE CHARTS.

    DONT HATE U MASTER SPLINTER L00KIN RAT. TELL HIM 2 FOCUS ON GETTIN HIS LABEL WHERE IT NEED S 2 B.

    ALSO JD & USHER HAVE CHARTED HISTORY SO OF COURSE HE ISNT GONNA SAY NUTTIN - ABOUT HIM.

  4. Ok.. here's the deal ..Danja is a really talend guy.. Usher has sad a record!!.. Ush is more respective artist around one of the biggest out there ... dont get me wrong but i like danja it is just that Ush had more reason to be on the cover than danja

  5. JD sexually molested usher when he was a young artist under his wing, didn't he?

    and p.s. it's the cover of billboard magazine, NO ONE CARES jermaine.

  6. fuck usher, that shit is embarassing.

    ReplyDelete
  7. you know what.... i kinda agree with him. billboard is for the music is it not??? the music industry has flipped... it's now the producers who are getting the shine when it should be the artist... i aint mad at danja but jd has a point.... but whatever....

    ReplyDelete
  8. JD is just a jealous idiot. Danja's contribution to the music biz in recent times has been absolutely massive. Bigger than his own and he's helped sell more records than all of Usher's last album sales.

    I mean does anyone really care about Usher anymore? That 'Love in the Club' track is lame - maybe he shoulda got a single from Danja :0

    ReplyDelete
  9. Danja has a song on Usher's album, though.

  11. to the person who said it should be the "artist" gettin the shine.. is a producer not an artist?!.. i damn sure dont feel like nearly as many people would buy an usher cd, or a beyonce cd, or whoever the hell cd if there wasnt any beats to it...if it was just 12 songs acapella.. get the fuck out of here.. singing isnt the only thing about a song that you call music. think before you just put out some idiot ass 2 cents.

  12. can anyone get the billboard article up?

  13. Yo Boog there must be some rea uneduacated ppl tht visit this site. Its aggrivatin as shit. U should block there IPs from comin on here. lol

    ReplyDelete
  14. since when is usher the biggest rnb/pop singer hahaha maybe jt

    ReplyDelete
  15. The idea of the super producer has killed music. and made albums a bunch of mixtapes. producers aren't artists. producers are producers.

    ReplyDelete
  16. "it's now the producers who are getting the shine when it should be the artist..."

    wow you really dont know what you're talking about. i can't begin to explain how wrong you are..

    ReplyDelete
  17. is this issue out yet???

    ReplyDelete
  18. jd has a point...in my opinion, I think that there should only be one cover and if there were two i think that usher should have been in front and then danja

    you cannot compare danja to usher because usher is just that big hes got tons of number one hits and danja is new i can understand how they wanna show the "new artist of tomorrow" type deal but to me its a slap in the face to usher danja just aint all that compared to usher

    ReplyDelete
  19. That nigga JD is salty...

    ReplyDelete
  20. i dont get it ! JD is more than 20 years in the game! he almost worked with everyone, he is like 40 somethin..why does he even give a fuck..why is he jealous he already done did it and now bitchin like 1st grader..

    danja fuckin owns the industry! real talk! i hope he keeps ownin for the next years and dont fuck up like storch! lol

    ReplyDelete
  21. JD isn't jealous. was he supposed to be on the cover? NO! There's an order to things no matter how much ppl wanna tip danja.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Producers are ruling everything because artists are scared to show any real artistry and do their own thing nowadays. Artistry is more evident in the producers' work than the artists. Everybody wants to play it safe and sound like everything else. So nowadays, the only different-sounding stuff comes when someone creative like Danja is widely accepted in the industry. Of course there are exceptions, but...

    ReplyDelete
  23. ROFLMAO, LOL XD

    "Danja... That's that Reggae-Artist?"

    ReplyDelete
  24. first of JT aint nothing compered to usher ... Danja hassent have that great beats on his OWN wich is a number ONE record also... think about it again and again and again... Usher is a legend in the music industry ..Danja is good! but Ush is a Big star ...be a realist

    ReplyDelete
  25. J.D. can be mad all he wants, but that's just because J.D. has been in the game since he was 18, and he cant touch Danja. Hes looking at that billboard cover saying to himself "damn, i aint got shit on this kid." Jermaine's style is too old for what's out right now, and we all know it.

    ReplyDelete
  26. ^^^you right danja is that dude even got a track on Usher's record probably better than JD's just like on Mariah's album i felt he went back to typical JD beats Danja doesn't sound like nobody else he is a hater Usher really hasn't had any buzz like his last album did and not like Justin's past album don't get me wrong i like usher and gonna cop his record but blame that on usher's own people for that little hater.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Its so dumb how JD got them to film that so it looked like reality...thats the main thing I find wrong.
    JD has an opinion, he just needs to be a bit more 'grown' in expressing it, ain't nobody gona take this shit seriously..

    personally im tired of usher

    I hate Jermaine Dupri... Danja is so much better than this man.
    The JD times are gone, this is why he talks those things about Danja.

    ReplyDelete
  29. As i see it, it doesn't matter what JD says personally. Sure Billboard did a double cover. They are a business!!!! So you are gonna just blame the state of music just because of a cover?!?!?Usher has sold millions of record and is a very successful artist but number one artist world?!!?!? That is definitely NOT the case. And Jermaine can't talk when his label hasnt had a platinum record since BOW WOW was signed to him. Sure he makes hit records but they dont change the sound of music or take it to another level like Tim/Danja/Royal Court/Hannon Lane/ Clutch/Soul Diggaz and other people in the Tim camp have. Consistancy doesn't mean complacency.

    ReplyDelete
  30. WOW...Cant even give a Bro Producer Props Eh? yet The man Failed too Realized that Nate produced some of Ushers tracks...But oh well..its the Game/Business, 10 Million Records etc etc..who cares. Damn this American Idol Generation!!!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Most of you failed to see JD's point.

    ReplyDelete
  32. well then just be content that you did, and then move along.

    JD is wack, so is Usher..thats all.

    ReplyDelete
  33. i think jd is right usher should be on the first page but i still think jt is bigger than usher i like them both but usher isnt the biggest pop/rnb singer

    ReplyDelete
  34. Ok yeah yeah, i see his point.. he got one thing wrong though.. when he was pointin to usher he was all like 'this is the one with the biggest single in the world'.. was he meaning love in this club? coz it aint' the biggest in the world right now.. 4 minutes is and who produced that? yeah.. i rest my case..

    ReplyDelete
  35. fuck JD fuck em hand cuffed to a wall wit super glue on his lips wit no lube lil bitch ass hatin ass nigga i'll smack fire from his lil ass step yo game up punk and try an get back on the charts i hate haters wit money even more than broke haters get yo hits up homie so so def has gone so so LEFT FIELD all they shit iz wack DANJA IZ THE FUTURE OF MUSIC GET USE TO IT MASTER SPLINTER! no disrespect to usher but fuck the lolly pop kid Jd!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  36. go sit down with janet u lil bitch and shut the fuck up u might not mean no disrespect to danja but it doesn't seem like it that's why tim and dre buried yo ass come on JD can't u 4 once be the bigger man in this situation?lol u can't touch anything that danja does in your dreams and don't u ever forget that shit main never!!!!!!!usher u cool as a polar bears toe nail

    ReplyDelete
  37. That ain't got nothing to do with shit besides JD being mad Usher didn't get a cover in the lead up to his album. It could have been Quincy Jones in Danja's position and JD still would have been complaining.

    To those of you talking about "Usher is a bigger personality, he's sold more records, he's had more hits, he's contributed more to music" .. Where are you pulling this information from? Didn't Danja have around seven top 10 singles just last year plus the #1 record in the world right now? If we're talking about whats currently hot then I'd say Danja is more than appropriate for the cover.

    Thats all.

  39. Maybe Billboard didnt want to base their Dicision just on who's got the most Sales and who's longer in the Business but alson on how much Buzz someone has at some Point.
    but ionno...

    I bet it wasnt too easy for the Editors and Staff at Billboard to come up with this Decision now. BNet there were also a lot of other Opinions on how the Cover should look like.

    I wonder why they havent put them Side by Side with Photoshop...

    ReplyDelete
  40. Ok JD is seriously a washed up producer who is honestly past his prime.

    Retire now you lame-ass loser.

    Danja is the shiz

    ReplyDelete
  41. I just watched it again and listened to the dude JD was talkin to. He said sum seriously libelous shit there lol.

    "The one on the front is bought, and Usher's is for free, from the label.. Billboard tryna get their money man"

    That dude should seriously go easy on those kinds of comments before somebody sues his ass lol.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Lol Jd is funny, I see where he's coming from though, but he needs to chill!

    ReplyDelete
  43. who the fuck cares, theit both on the cover ones in front ones in the back, they probably just tosses a coin or looked on how much the artist sold this year, and that definily is danja.


    so congrats to danja

  45. most of ya'll some cry babies to hate on jd just b/c you can't be rational and listen to what the man said. so you have some kind of man crush on danja and got butt hurt when someone brings up the fact that he doesn't deserve something that he doesn't. most of you have a 2 week memory span too. i guess whoever is getting overplayed on the radio is the best rapper...yea that's wayne eh... it's bigger than a magazine cover. open your eyes.

    ReplyDelete
  46. wait, I get it...this is all a veiled attack at Usher's real nemesis, Justin Timberlake. Remember how salty Usher was about JT when JT went big solo? It's all about that. Usher is just jealous.

    JD is just pissy cuz usher paid polow, and not him, for a garageband loop.

  47. Al Sween get the fuck out of here u been a Danja haters since day one. Your the only person I've ever known to not give props when they are genuinely due. Your just mad you ain't Tim's protege like Danja.

    Al Sween AKA Danja's #1 Hater

    ReplyDelete
  48. nope i don't hate danja. i just hate his tippers who overate anybody who is new. it's rather ridiculous. but jd's comments have very little to do with danja. it's about putting someone who's green over someone who is established. on top of that it's a producer. producers aren't supposed to be on the cover of billboard. but instead ppl assume jd is jealous or hating when it's far from the truth. he says danja is talented. you don't hate on ppl and say they're talented. when the truth is spoken then that's what it is. don't cry because you love danja more than jesus.

  49. "producers aren't supposed to be on the cover of billboard."

    Shut the fuck up and get out...

  50. Al doesn't have to like danja he respects him people putting words in other peoples mouth.

  51. when it comes to producers people seem to think you have to produce stuff over a long period of time before you can even comment on how good they are or put them among the elite.

    i think a lot can be said for a producer just by hearing the quality and cohesiveness of their sound over a few records. if its on that level then its on that level whether they been doing it for years or not.

    i think danja has already proved himself to be within the elite - he doesn't follow such a strict formula as urban produces that have come before him (scott storch) he's got real innovation going on in his records in the same vein as tim has always had.

    as far as JD Danja has produced tracks that are way behond his ability and how long had JD been producing for? he's a lame cookie cutter producer who knows the game fairly well and can bolster together some pretty melodies. he doesn't truly work with SOUND.

    and Usher isn't cool anymore - that Love in the Club track is cliched to the max. Given Tims recent successes it seems that people do want to hear something edgier and experimental. Tim/Danja > Polow 'Da Don'

    ReplyDelete
  52. interesting how the only way for ppl to credit their favorite is to discredit those who are in the same profession. jd wasn't even going at danja and ppl mad and saying that jd's contributions were nothing?

    ReplyDelete
  53. why was JD making a big deal out of it in the first place?... his is an opinion, just like every post in this little section right here..just because someone isn't sharing yours doesnt meant they're butthurt or love danja more than jesus..which, the same argument could run both ways.. go roll down a hill sween..

    ReplyDelete
  54. The fact is that its a business and they are going to make money! Whether JD or anybody says anything is not going to change that. Lead by example people. Actions are WAY louder then words. Jd is at a situation where he has influence. Damn he IS the head of Island Records right?!!? Like i said before JD is talented but i mean that Rocko CD was not a good start but was salvaged when Mariah Carey came out. Again she IS established though. In this music business, people say your only as good as your last album. That being said.... Go support GOOD music not that novelty, ringtone bullshit.

  59. "on almost every danja solo beat ure actually listening to dope ass old timbo-ish beats!"

    that's bullshit

    ReplyDelete
  60. This is stupid. I can see if Danja was on the cover of People magazine or Teen choice but its fucking billboard. No usher fan is really checking for billboard the magazine is more geared towards hardcore music fans so all i gitta say is JD and Al Sween hop off Danja's dick

    ReplyDelete
  61. alsween just leave it alone...most of these people at first had something negative to say about danja when it came to tim...now tim has disappeared they jumped on the danja wagon..i know danja n tim..so im not blind blogging..jd said nothin bad about danja..can a danja cover outsell a usher cover..no..producers on mag covers dont sell thats why scratch magazine took a fall...billboard opted out for the money..danja cover was bought..usher cover was not....thats what jd is saying thats whats wrong with the music biz...money over morals..usually artist get covers when they cd drops..then the artist support bilboard awards..i bet they want usher to perform at the billboard awards!!!!!!!SEE THATS THE PART U MISSING..cuz usher performing at the awards will be better ratings than danja accepting award..right!!

    ReplyDelete
  62. put ya handz up if danja suuuuuxx, danja suuuuuuuuuux!

    say hoooo-hooooooo

    (hooooooo hoooooooooo)

    now screeeeeam!!!!

    aghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  63. lol i didn't even come up here to diss anyone. i just wanted to state that the vid isn't jd vs danja. and that jd shouldn't be discredited just because people like danja.

    ReplyDelete
  64. "i know danja n tim"... yep, and you are?

    Anyways, Billboard can put Producers on their cover pages, and still gather more customers and keeping making more money. THey are not Scratch magazine. Scratch will never have the legend behind their name as Billboard has.

  65. alsween i feel for u ur right none of these bithces understand a kiss for u muah!

    ReplyDelete
  66. How is JD not dissing Danja when he doesn't even want to acknowledge him? He kept saying "who is that on the cover?". Danja never came out of JD's mouth.
    Granted it all looks staged to make sure Usher gets attention first with JD in the spotlight plugging Usher.
    Sad display of attention, should he wanted to make an impact, he should have talked to Billboard or better yet, the Better Business Bureau.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Why jd complaining Usher's label has barely even promoted for his upcoming album if it wasn't for the many websites i wouldn't know if he was coming out with anything.Jd billboard isn't going to be enough to promote usher do some yourself quit crying.
