Lupe Fiasco expresses his anger toward Pete Rock

1 Comment

Earlier this week Lupe Fiasco dropped Around My Way (Freedom Ain’t Free) off his upcoming Food & Liquor 2: The Great American Rap Album Part I and Part II project — which contains the same Tom Scott sample used in Pete Rock & CL Smooth’s classic, T.R.O.Y.

Long story short, Pete Rock wasn’t happy with it… but then Lupe and Pete Rock talked and worked everything out.

Well, not exactly… earlier today, Lupe called #SwayInTheMorning to tell his side of angry the story.
1. Lupe DID get clearance on the record from the label.
2. Pete Rock wasn’t suppose to tweet about their “epic” homage to Troy and Heavy D.
3. Unfortunately, the situation hasn’t been resolved yet.


Theraflu is mad at Kanye West’s “Theraflu”

No Comment

As we all know, Kanye’s new banger that dropped earlier this week has been making buzz around the internet and radio waves. Not only did PETA release a negative statement toward Yeezy, but now a representative of Theraflu released a statement with TMZ saying:

“We in no way endorse or approve of the references or use of the image and likeness of Theraflu in this manner, Theraflu is an over-the-counter product used to help relieve cold and flu symptoms that millions of consumers rely on.”

Our boy Kanye can really create a buzz in less than two days. Haha! Bet Theraflu aint complaining about the peak in their sales though!


PETA responds to Kanye’s “Theraflu” lyrics

No Comment

We love Kanye’s Theraflu because he keeps it all the way one-hunnid. From borrowing Ma$e’s line from his 1998 single, Lookin’ At Me: “Can I have a bad b!tch with out no flaws / Come and meet me with out no drawls.”

To talk mentioning Wiz by name, and admitting to falling in love with Kim Kardashian:

“And the whole industry want to fuck your old chick/ Only n*gga I got respect for is Wiz/ And I’ll admit I fell in love with Kim around the same time she fell in love with him…”

But now, PETA isn’t too happy about this line: “Tell PETA my mink is draggin’ on the floor.”

They released a statement with XXL saying:

“What’s draggin’ on the floor is Kanye’s reputation as a man with no empathy for animals or human beings. He’s a great musician but doesn’t seem to have the fashion sense to design anything more than caveman costumes. We keep hoping that one day he’ll find his heart and join evolved style icons—including Russell Simmons, Pink, and Natalie Portman—who have dropped animal skins.”
