Lupe Disses 2 Chainz’ “Birthday Song”
Lupe certainly didn’t hold back when he was asked what he thought of 2 Chainz’ new single, “Birthday Boy,” featuring Kanye West, while appearing on Hot 93.7’s The Hot Afternoon Show With Jenny Boom Boom. “Eh…For me, hip hop, I wanna hear stuff that I’ve never heard before, so like 99 percent of the hip hop that I hear these days is just the same,” he said. “And it just kinda gets like, ‘What am I listening to it for?’ And for me that’s keeping it 100. It is what it is. It might be good, the beat is dope, lyrics might be whatever on a technical thing but at the end of the day it’s like, ‘Why am I listening to this?’”
Lupe Clashes With Pete Rock
Lupe beefed with Pete Rock earlier this year after the legendary producer said he was angry that Lu had remade the beat for his classic 1993 cut “They Reminisce Over You” on his ”Around My Way (Freedom Ain’t Free).” Pete later tweeted that the two had reconciled and were going to collaborate, but Lupe walked that back—way back. ”He wasn’t supposed to say that. He was supposed to say the same sh– he said on the phone, ‘Yo man it was my bad, that was wack, it was f—ed up for me to say that, it was disrespectful, I was 100 percent in the wrong, I apologize.’ That’s what he was supposed to say,” Fiasco said. “You let all these other dudes rap on it, but you sh– on me? It’s like damn, it’s me, kid. I don’t know how to respect that. Part of me comes from the streets, straight from the streets, and part of me don’t know how to respect that.”
