Chad HBK Haynez – F*ck With Me (Bought Views)

Hey Chad, Prepare to be Fucked With:

By: Young Bro Hard

We’ve hit an all time low with this one guys. This video contains just about everything wrong with up and comers in this game.

First and foremost: Bought views. I really can’t go too much further than what my writing accomplices have already said. Please watch this beautifully done video by our bearded founder, on the problems and pitfalls of buying fake followers/views.

Jai Paul’s “BTSTU” sample has been one of the more used tracks for producers and rappers lately, one, because it sounds amazing and is incredibly catchy, and two, because Drake hopped on it a few years back which of course inspired the likes of all to do the same.  I don’t think I’d ever heard a remix to it that I truly did not enjoy, until young Chad Haynez hopped aboard. I can get over the whiny voice, stereotypical rhyme scheme, and simpleminded vocabulary, however, when I heard three of the most overused hip-hop lines in history, back-to-back-to-back, I had to be talked back from the wood chipper I was about to jump in to.

1) “And that right there is the shit.” Slighty better that “I’M AM THE SHIT, LIKE ME LAST POO.” But, still pretty god-awful.

2) “The shit I don’t like.” As if Chief Keef hadn’t said it enough times.

3) “Just keep it one hundred.” If I hear one more rapper say “I’MMA JUST KEEP IT A HUNNID, AND GRIND ERRYDAY, NAH MEAN?” I will pull the trigger on the gun I’ve been massaging my head with throughout this song.

Lastly, I need to quickly delve in to HBK’s nauseating fashion sense. I don’t usually hate on the clothes anyone wears, because it’s all personal preference and I don’t really care what any artist looks like as long as they make good music. HOWEVER, when I see a skinny white boy dressed as this stupid 2012 hype-beast I have become so familiar with, I loose all faith in the human race. Let me run down what made me cringe during this music video, (besides the song of course, lulz).

Crooks  & Castles hat: Everyone knows that all you need to be a rapper is a microphone and some diggity-dope C & C gear, right? Wrong.

Non-prescription glasses: I am taking a leap of faith and saying the glasses rocked so well in the video are not needed for eye-sight as Chad is clearly seen without them in some of the other scenes. I’m not really sure why non-prescription glasses get me fired-up, (maybe it’s because EVERY white rapper wears them for at least one photo/ video), but they do, and that is that.

Red Solo Cup: Yes, you as a 16 year old boy needs to drink away your sorrows about the loss of a highschool girlfriend, so please, grab the nearest solo cup and fill it up with some of the strongest Natty you can find! (Oh wait…)

Showing off a tattoo: Having a tattoo is a form of expression. In and of itself, it does not make you cooler. 

Pierced nose stud: Are you Tupac? Oh, you’re not? Are you an teenage latino girl? Oh, you’re not? Then take out that silly ass nose ring.

Beats By Dre Headphones: The number of kids that Dr. Dre has brainwashed with his headphones is mind-boggling. They are awful quality headphones, look cheaply produced and un-professional, yet still hundreds and hundreds of dollars get spent to look cooler in front of peers and the media by wearing them. At least Haynez was wearing them around his head, because if they weren’t on his ears, I can guarantee you I would have ripped them off his neck and fed them to the nearest lion, (but if I had seen him in person I would have already called him clown shoes and ripped out his silly nose ring, so I don’t know how much more he could have taken…).

All in all, he looks like a Hi-Rez knock off with less talent, (is that possible?), and raps about issues less relevant than than the whereabouts of The Situation from The Jersey Shore, AND let’s not forget, he buys views to warm his sad little heart up at night! Wanna see how we know he buys views? Look at the picture below.

BMAD | Exposed Bought Youtube Views

Notice how all his views jumped up roughly 10,000 over the course of a couple days and then leveled out with literally no increase after. That is a clear indication that he bought views.

Justin Sketch – Summertime Hustlin’ (Bought Views)

Here at BMAD, there’s nothing we enjoy more than a good old fashioned roast…and we also enjoy not having to do it ourselves (roasting all these clown takes a lot out of us!). So, thank you to whoever submitted this video with a well written roast of his or her own. Here’s what Anonymous had to say about this video:

“I’m truly embarrassed for this dude. Don’t these kids have friends to tell them how terrible they are? “Justin Sketch” is just corny, flat out. His voice, his clothes, his non-intricate 4th grade ass rhymes. If that isn’t god awful enough, he bought “likes” and views for the video. What a fucking joke. These kids are so void of talent but spend their allowance on fraudulent fame, or with Jon Kilmer. I know you guys get a lot of submissions, but this has got to be one of the worst as of late.”

Well, Justin Sketch picked a very appropriate name for himself as he most certainly is trying to buy his way into the industry (good luck, kid) in a very “skecthy” manner (see what I did there). He, without question, bought Youtube views, likes and comments. Here is how I know this. 1) The song is pure, unfiltered garbage. 2) His top demographic is 45-54 years-old men (totally my dad’s style of music). 3) All his “views” and “likes” came in the same 48 hour period. 4) Check out the comments from the video below…These are what fake comments look like. Notice how they are all very generic,vague and written in broken English. You could put these comments on any video.

BMAD Fake Youtube Comments

Cato “Clown Shoes” Schaefer

Cato of Last Call Recordings is a Clown

This is what it looks like when someone buys Youtube views. Notice 4 “likes” and 1 comment, yet somehow we are supposed to believe this piece of shit video was viewed 18,000 times…in a couple days, no less (see the statistic graph)!

Cato, get a grip! Do you honestly think people are that dumb? The rest of your videos average 50 views a piece. This dude is honestly the epitome of a cake ass wannabe rapper living in a delusional world fueled by his awkward narcissism, most likely due to his mother telling him he was “special” growing up instead of doing the right thing and telling him the harsh truth that he is 100% average in every way imaginable. Here’s a video (one of very few he hasn’t taken down since we started exposing him a few days ago) that shows just how warped this dude’s mind is…

Notice how Cato compares his “#Stayfly Saturdays” to the likes of Mike Stud and Timeflies…this dude honestly believes, in his pathetic feeble mind, that he’s on the same level as those guys who are selling out headlining tours. Cato, you’re 28 years-old. You’re way on the wrong side of 25 to still be trying to gain success as a college rapper. Quit. If anyone ever sees this dude in person, please walk right up to him, stare him dead in the eye and call him Clown Shoes.

Buying Youtube Views…Exposed

Gigg – Whatchu Tryna Prove

So, there is a relatively new phenomenon that revolves around buying Youtube “views,” Facebook “likes,” and Twitter “followers” that has surfaced in the past couple months. I’d like to go ahead and shine some light on this topic, specifically in regards to Youtube.

To be clear, this has actually been going on for a couple years, but only in the past 6 months have people become aware of this dishonest/sketchy tactic. To be fair, artists (and businesses) have been doing this for a while, but initially not everyone had the ability or means to purchase these social media measurement tools because they used to be pretty damn expensive. But, as it normally goes in the online community, copycat businesses sprung up all over the web, chalked full of developers who figured out how to sell social media measurements. With new companies offering these services came increased competition and therefore made the price much much lower. The majority of these companies use the same tactics which involve bots or help from overseas. Here is how you can normally catch someone who has bought Youtube “views.”

1. A ton of “views” but very few “likes” or “comments.” A good unit of measurement for independent artists is 1 comment for every 300-500 views. For example, if a video has 50,000 views, it should have approximately 100-170 comments. Additionally, a fair assessment for “likes” (or dislikes) should be about 1 for every 100 views.

Now, obviously, people caught onto this pretty quick. So companies started selling “comments” and “likes” along with “views.” It made it a little more tricky to catch, but you can still look for a few things that’ll tip it off.

2. If it seems like a good majority of comments were left by people who don’t speak English, then you’ve found a culprit of buying comments. Many of these companies outsource the work to India, so if you see a comment like, “dope the music. big of fan you” or “good is really so video song, like me it much” then odds are, they bought comments.

3. If the song/video absolutely sucks (and not to the point where it’s comical) and it has a ton of views, odds are they bought views. Plain and simple.

The reason I felt the need to expose this practice is that it really isn’t fair to actual good musicians who aren’t willing to cheat to get ahead. Not to mention, it’s just  fucking lame, man. The video posted above is from some whack assed wannabe rapper named “Gigg.” Although his comment ratio kiiind of checks out, refer to #3 and it’s clear that we have ourselves a LAME ASS CHEATER. “Whatchu Tryna Prove,” Gigg? Remember everyone, don’t let the number of “views” sway your opinion of an artist. If it’s good, it’s good, and if it’s bad it’s GIGG!
