Yes "bro," because Lupe not speaking to Pete Rock one on one is what caused this in the first place or was the beat imposed on him? I would't be surprised if someone said something that was never said whether Pete or Lupe. All because it was his "crew" reaching out to Pete Rock. Regardless, if they could of talked hip-hop head to hip-hop head they could of come to some reasonable agreement without all this coming about; and you're very welcome.“We reached out to Pete in November, he said ‘Nah I don’t really wanna do that, because the record means so much to me, its emotional.’ I reminded him that it’s already been remade and put out by a ton of n----s"
So because everyone has done it, you're going to do it too? Like everybody else? I thought this kid was anti-establishment yet he wants to rap over T.R.O.Y. because everyone is doing it?
Alright, Lupe, alright. He needs to freestyle over Who Shot Ya? and C.R.E.A.M. now.
Then he says that his crew has been reaching out to Pete for six months but never man to man and then he gets on the phone with Pete with six other cats telling Pete why he called them out? Not man to man, Lupe?
...and Lupe who is always talking about letting your voice be heard and speaking out wouldn't even talk to any of the shows' listeners. lol
Alright, kid, alright.
When I hear this beat I think Trouble T Roy not Lupe Fiasco. Sorry, Lupe. If you were paying homage you would of just dropped the issue when Pete Rock said "Nah I don’t really wanna do that, because the record means so much to me, its emotional" rather than saying everybody's doing, so let me go ahead and make a single of it. Be original, man.
I've lost plenty of respect for Lupe, anybody who likes Hip-Hop knows about T.R.O.Y. it doesn't need Lupe Fiasco to “Go back and take one of the iconic records of Hip Hop and put a new spin on it and put it back out there." It's good as is.
Your rhymes are ill as always, but I doubt that you're as clean of this mess as you try to portray. Now we need to hear Pete Rock's side of the story.
You understand how labels work bro? Pretty sure people from WB and Atlantic were on the call, because it involved their product. Nice way to try to place your opinion on it, slighting someone, thank you.
BTW, has Pete Rock heard this yet? I just sent it to someone who has a working relationship with him.
