Lupe Fiasco - Fumbles @ Hip Hop Honors

So... Lupe fumbles some words from "A Tribe Called Quest" song at the Hip-Hop Honors.... It happens... Didn't know people would take it so personal, though...

Here's what he had to say:
“[Tribe] didn’t sell 10 million records, so why would people think they had a blanket on the world like that? MC Hammer was way more popular to me than Tribe Called Quest.”

“Because there’s kids in Harlem who right now who would never ever listen to Midnight Marauders, I don’t give a fuck what you do, they’ll never listen to Q-Tip and they want to be rappers and they want to talk about positive things. So why would you shoot them down?”

“It’s like, ‘Oh, you ain’t never listened to Midnight Marauders? You ain’t expanding your horizons? Oh, you ain’t real’ cause they did that shit to me! ‘Oh Lupe, that’s fucked up man, I don’t fuck with you now! I’m not buying your next album’ and be dead serious! It made me feel like, ‘You dirty bastards! Like how dare you hypocritical.”

“Those hip hop elitists who think [Tribe] hold the crown and the copyright to hip hop, I listen to 8Ball & MJG and I think they’re better than you [Tribe].”

Wow.... That's saying ALOT... heheh. Crazy...

Joe Budden - Released from Def Jam!

Yea... so Joey got released from Def Jam... Everybody's favorite rapper to hate on... Joe Budden has been signed to Def Jam since 2000, and went gold with his 1st album, has been sitting collecting dust over there. I'm glad the let him out his contract... I hope he finds a GOOD label soon, and hopes he has good negotiating skills... Good luck, Joey.

Check out this new track from Nas... It's pretty decent... It's gonna be on his "Greatest Hits" album...
