Ricci STEEZ On The "Great Estate"



"Hmmm... Where do I begin? There's going to be some things in this post many won't agree with... well hey... this ain't your blog. Now I watch the twitter feeds and the facebook statuses from a certain number of people. I see the tumblr questions on tumblrs of affiliates. It seems there's still a question mark above the heads of plenty when it comes to what's real, what's an idea, and what's fake. The good that I see is some of the people that I've worked with in the past and still to this day are growing and becoming familiar to the fans and supporters. You have to respect that. Positive words are being spread from the young and... the not so young. You have to respect that. I'm disturbed by some things though.
I'm lost when people claim they're self made but seem to forget about what it took for them to get to where they are. As I was taught, "SELF-MADE" meant that a person did everything uhmm... themselves. If I made a table myself that means I did all the work myself with no help. If I made a bed frame myself, that means I sketched it myself, designed it myself, got the tools myself and put it together myself. Right? Now if that table or bed frame was built with the hands of 4 others... can I still say these things were...self-made? I don't think so. Maybe I'm mistaken.
After that table is made with the help I probably called family but didn't give a dime to, I cut them off as soon as I get the opportunities I've been looking for and proclaim greatness and title myself "SELF-MADE"!!!! AAAHHHH. -__-.
There's alot of BS on the internet and I'm learning about it more and more each day. The funny thing is when you address these issues... it's called hate? When you state the facts of how grown men use 16 year olds for open doors but question 19 year olds about hanging out with youngns.. it's called hate? When you point out that someone is a walking contradiction... it's called hate? Really? Wow.... I must have the game all twisted.............

Speculation of 'THE GREAT ESTATE'? There is no Great Estate anymore... and if there is, it's like the 'MUMMY 3' where they took out all the original characters the fans knew and loved... and we all know how that movie did. Yikes. The immaturity level from certains was ridiculous. Grown men can't even confront the people they called family. If a man wants to jump ship and knows there's no obligation all he has to do is let the team know. What "boss" is scared to talk to a lady or the people they have a history with over issues that were important? Was Diddy scared to talk to Mase after everything? Did he avoid phone calls but tweet all day? No. He handled things proper... in a mature manner. Big Ups to Diddy!
No there's no beef... and honestly about 4 members from the groups still rock close together in life.Shoutouts to Adeen, Nunnie's World, and the homie Nero! Others got on they high horse... polo. LOL. Shoutouts to Big Sean! I just learned that when certain people get a small spotlight they tend to forget who helped them. The people that forget to realize they don't do certain things as well as others, whether it's writing, spelling or designing, so people take time out of their life to help them and correct them with no judgement. The ones that see talent, use talent... leave talent. Yikes. Shoutouts to the moms that act like moms even to those who aren't theirs. Shout out to the artists who work late nights to help a "friend" who only contacted them when their project had to be finished. Shoutouts to the humble that keep promises close to their hearts. Just a few things, pourin' out my soul... Ricci Steez I can see you with my eyes closed. LOL.
LESSON? Watch what you say to people, It can be used against you. Artists, designers, entrepreneurs should always look into official paperwork and get paid for your talents. Your gifts are like none other so stop with the under the table deals. Trustworthy people are rare! I tell you this from the mistakes I've made. Handle your business like a man. Be a boss but bosses don't run scared. Tweet Facts... not fantasies. Never run from the problems you may have... they may just find you later 10 times bigger. Show love!" - Ricci

My take on the whole Situation? I'm happier than I was before. I have people around that are really around me because they are friends and people who love me and what I do. Am I mad? No lol Am I hurt? I was. But as it stands I know who I am and who my friends are. Nero, Ricci, Jovany, Nunnie and those who weren't in the Great Estate. I owe a lot of what I have to a lot of people. Not to one person. So I thank each and every one of you. Thanks! Hope you the readers all understand as well. - Remy

WTF?! why y'all speaking in code! tell us straight. what went down wit u n scott

yduran said...

Nothing went "down". This is a well written editorial piece by Ricci Steez that warranted a repost is all.

aww...im gonna miss you guys i thought this was going to be something epic

Connor Norton said...

Help me out:

So what happened??

scott is a fake, a fraud, he always talks about stuff that he is not.

First of all.. Im devastated cause I really loved the concept of the great estate and i've been supporting every one of you guys, its sad that it had to end like this, nobody did see this coming,but actually we should've. I really thought that you were grown ups! Throwing subliminals on your blogs? I mean everybody knows that its about Scott McKenzie, you should've mentioned him... Mentioning the people you're cool with and leaving his name 'out of it' but throwing subliminals about him,thats just immature. Not taking anyone's side cause 1.) you all dissapointed us 2.) i wasnt there when the whole thing started. Im just regretting the fact that i thought that you were grown ups. EVERY ONE OF YOU! And btw Ricci never felt part of a group or whatsoever. He's always been 'humble and unique' and alone! He always was there when you guys needed him! He helped Scott with his book,  he helped Jimmy with Adeen, and this is the thanks he get? Jimmy worked hard to get where he is now (shouts to mama Duran) and this is the thanks he get? Great Scott helped all of you,connections, advice, etc AND THIS IS THE THANKS HE GET? I only mentioned Ricci, Jimmy,and Scott cause they were the ' big talents' in the group. Nero and Eric are humble. And Jovany is Jovany. And you guys never signed papers so technically nobody owes anyone anything! Period. Stupid move. Cause if papers were signed you wouldnt have this problem,the grind was a complete 'fraud'. Where's the fam? Is this the fam? You were never a fam to begin with. Cause families stick together no matter WHAT! Everything lost his credibility,adeen,the book,nbrhd,riccisteez.com :(((

Rembrandt Duran said...

To the above comment, no offense, but you honestly weren't even that close to any of us. Because from what I get from what you are saying you don't know us. Ricci is literally asleep on my couch as I type this. He was always with us, just maybe not in front of the camera so much. But he was always there and a part. You don't know what was given to who and don't know what wasn't. You don't even refer to me as Remy, but as Jimmy. So how close could you have been?? You don't know really what you are saying. BUT thats ok. And as far as subliminals go.... it really isn't so subliminal. We didn't mention any names because i felt it was the most non confrontational thing to do. But it was pretty obvious. It doesn't take anything away from anyone or any project. Ricci is still family, Nero is still family, Jovany is still ADEEN and Nunnie is still family. Scott made his choice not I. Or any of us for that matter. Now I could put out certain details but its really none of you guys business. Just for the record. But take it how you want, sorry to have dissapointed you. We just felt it necessary to let you guys know a little but and you assumed a lot. But heres a little more clarity for you.

Anonymous said...

Well thank you for the clarity. I never said that I know you. Like I said we werent there when everything happened. My comment is based on what i've read on your blogs adeenmagazine and riccisteez.com , we cant know everything, but if you post something like this,you cant expect from us to know more than we see or read! I just gave my point of view, thats what comments are for right?

Anonymous said...

SORRY FOR YOU GUYS THERE IS PEOPEL THAT WILL LOVE TO WORK WITH YOU GUYS BUT WHEN SOME ONE HAVE A BAD THING GOING ON WITH THE OTHER. THAT PERSON WILL TRY TO FUCK UP EVERYTHING. LOL AND SCOTT IS ABOUT THIS SHIT SAYING PAY ME AND ALL OK YOU THINK A PERSON IS NOT GOING TO PAY YOU FOR WHAT YOU DO. NOW I KNOW YOU GUYS AND EVERYTHING SO DONT ACT AS YOU DONT KNOW WHO I AM. BUT WHEN SCOTT IS AROUND PEOPLE ACT FUNNY SO FUCK IT. I UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU ALL ARE DOING AND THERE IS PEOPLE THAT WILL LOVE TO WORK WITH YOU ALL. WE CANT GET WERE WE WANT TO BE IF PEOPLE CANT PUT SHIT TO THE SIDE AND WORK TOGETHER. MAYBE I CAN BE THAT PERSON THAT FUCK UP SCOTT FACE AGAIN LOL. DONT ACT AS YOU DONT KNOW WHO I AM LOL. AND JOVANY YOU WAS RUNNING AROUND WITH DON D. WHAT HAPPEN TO THAT HE WAS THE PERSON THAT PUT YOU ON. PEOPLE JUST CANT WORK WITH EACH OTHER.
