Back in 08/09, Lightheaded emcee, Othello & producer 14KT were to collaborate on a project called Takin’ Ls. Fast forward a few years and finally it looks like this project will see the light of day. FRSH SLCTS, the newly relaunched website, dropped two tracks today from said project. They also report that Othello will be dropping 2 new tracks every month for the rest of the year. Get em while you can……

I am not an advocate for violence or hate for the sake of hate, okay that’s not true, sometimes the best therapy is a well placed hateful barb. But this is ridiculous, not only is Lupe calling out a legend in the industry he is performing in, he is making a fool out of himself. Not let me express a couple things real quick, I have a preconceived notion about Lupe. Dating back to like 2007 and the Magic convention when I met dude and he was on complete douche bag mode. For no reason, a few things played out and he ended up showing the true colors of his character. Regardless I stayed a fan and supported him. I thought he had a real gift and I still do. But his career has had many ups and downs. Hip Hop honors when he admits to not being familiar with the Tribe catalog which he was called upon to perform in their honor. His questionable political stances, but this takes the cake. My personal opinion aside on the use of the track, Lupe made a fool of himself to Sway today, not only calling out Pete Rock. The equivalent of someone like Michael Crabtree calling out Jerry Rice, sometimes you just don’t do. Anyway, Lupe’s rant feels eerily like the Ray J rant going at Fabolous, another head scratcher…….I kept waiting for Lupe to talk about his indoor AND outdoor pools, and his fleet of Bentleys in the parking lot. He keeps mentioning his team and all types of nonsense, then at the end of the video he won’t even listen to anyone responding to him.
“Thou shalt not raise a false report: put not thine hand with the wicked to be an unrighteous witness.” Welp! Here we go…..Young Money vs Pusha T? Drake vs Pusha? DeWayne vs Pusha? G.O.O.D. Music vs YM or Cash Money? My money is on Pusha……..
