I’m in a predicament because I think it makes absolutely no sense for Lupe to do this in regards to his career.  That being said I agree with everything he says.  MTV sucks.  I can  proudly proclaim that I haven”t watched the network in years.  That being said it cannot be denied that the channel plays an instrumental roll in he relevancy of certain artists.  Which is why I don’t understand why Lupe is calling them out. Par of the people reason people even know who he is has to do with the fact MTV has given him shine.   I gotta respect him for speaking his mind though.  Plus who cares about MTV?  Real hip-hop fans are on the internet stealing his music.  Below is Lupe’s rant.  Spotted at RR.

  • Oh snap…MTV (illuminati’s favorite network) back on the attack…why can’t y’all just chill out? Salacious banality @ the speed of light? I think I’ve been very good natured with you. I personally know several employees of your company. You guys know me as well. I’m confused. Where is the true music journalism??? where is Suchin?!! What happened? Where are the honest critiques of cultural expression? For it’s not about being RIGHT it’s about being HOT Fame over self-awareness and virtue Hedonism over self respect Celebrity over cerebral. A destroying force in our culture and society just like rest of the useless vapid spectacles that pour out of our tv’s and radios.What are we supposed to be learning from you? What is your point? Do you have a point beyond corporate sponsored distraction? Your a materialistic shell of your former self that can only identify with celebrity pageantry and instant gratification. Corporate garbage pushing plastic lifestyles and wasteful, destructive behavior into the brains of the youth of the world. So when your relevance thins in2 a whisper & the stock price collapses and you have 2 come 2 grips with the mess you made. I’ll be here 4 ya. We’ll be here. With hands full of baby powder 2 smack some sense back into your body & a warm shoulder to cry on. We want the REAL MTV back!
