Lupe Fiasco is just not feeling Offset's latest feedback concerning OG's in Hip Hop.
Offset not too long ago did an interview on Hot 97 and he had fairly the opinion about Hip Hop and what Migos has delivered to the tradition over the previous couple of years.
I all the time say it, for those who’re an older artist, try to be thanking us, kissing our toes," Offset agreed. "Not simply the Migos. How we turned the tradition of music. Number one, Hip Hop? In life, Hip Hop has by no means been the primary style, ever. So what had been you doing that’s higher? Right now once you go to Spotify (and many others.) you're not seeing the opposite genres. People take heed to Hip Hop greater than some other time. So try to be saluting us.
On high of that, Offset stated older artists must be kissing the newer artists toes, not simply Migos, however all the brand new artists which have turned Hip Hop right into a extra mainstream style.
Well, these feedback didn't sit too effectively with Lupe Fiasco.
Lupe fired again at Offset, telling him that he loves the Migos, however Offset's opinion is just not correct.
The disconnect…The Reconnect. Firstly let me say that I’m a huge fan of the Migos (specifically Emitt Smith & Fight Night. Also when I go to the club I only really get up and dance dance my little dance to Migos. True story) Secondly let me say that the only visceral problem with brother offsets statement is the use of the cliche “kissing feet”. That’s not a sign of respect that’s an act of subjugation of something lower to something higher and as Busta Rhymes told me when it comes to rap there are no classes, or superiors vs inferiors. We are all a team. Each with individual attributes that add their special skill set and energy to the whole. The metrics of industry don’t successfully define the essence of hiphop nor do they replace its legacy or the efforts of its pioneers who achieved great things with little to nothing in terms of materials (i.e. the internet and massive marketing budgets) and from that poverty of capital created a Culture, not a business, a legitimate Culture and were actively combatted by opposing forces from all walks of life. Streaming and selling records is only a part of the project that is hip hop. It’s a great feeling and milestone to sell a million records and be celebrated for that achievement. But it is just as great to be an amazing lyricist respected by thousands or just 1 for your abilities to craft amazing pieces of communication that can operate to influence society as a whole not just exclusively on a dance floor. Hip hop got its RESPECT from rappers who spoke truth to power and struck fear in the comfort zones of oppression and inspired folks to take a look at their surroundings, analyze and OVERCOME. Hip Hop isn’t respected because of how many records it has sold or how many dances it has created UNLESS WE TALM BOUT BREAKDANCING. Hip Hop is respected because it’s kisses nobodies feet. And never will. Our feet don’t belong on the mouths of our pioneers they belong on their shoulders. . . . The true rapper is the one who continues to do it when it’s no money, no fame, no cars, no jewelry…just the love of the craft that keeps them on that grind. That’s the bar. Everything else other than that is just filler and cap.

True story) Secondly let me say that the one visceral downside with brother offsets assertion is using the cliche “kissing toes”. That’s not an indication of respect that’s an act of subjugation of one thing decrease to one thing larger and as Busta Rhymes instructed me on the subject of rap there are not any lessons, or superiors vs inferiors. We are all a crew. Each with particular person attributes that add their particular talent set and vitality to the entire. The metrics of business don’t efficiently outline the essence of hiphop nor do they substitute its legacy or the efforts of its pioneers who achieved nice issues with little to nothing when it comes to supplies (i.e. the web and large advertising and marketing budgets) and from that poverty of capital created a Culture, not a enterprise, a authentic Culture and had been actively combatted by opposing forces from all walks of life. Streaming and promoting information is just part of the mission that’s hip hop. It’s an excellent feeling and milestone to promote 1,000,000 information and be celebrated for that achievement. But it’s simply as nice to be an incredible lyricist revered by hundreds or simply 1 in your talents to craft wonderful items of communication that may function to affect society as an entire not simply completely on a dance flooring. Hip hop received its RESPECT from rappers who spoke fact to energy and struck worry within the consolation zones of oppression and impressed of us to try their environment, analyze and OVERCOME. Hip Hop isn’t revered due to what number of information it has bought or what number of dances it has created UNLESS WE TALM BOUT BREAKDANCING. Hip Hop is revered as a result of it’s kisses nobodies toes. And by no means will.
Our toes don’t belong on the mouths of our pioneers they belong on their shoulders. .
The true rapper is the one who continues to do it when it’s no cash, no fame, no vehicles, no jewellery…simply the love of the craft that retains them on that grind. That’s the bar. Everything else apart from that’s simply filler and cap.
