Lupe Fiasco calls out Complex for throwing his name in an article he apparently didn't want to be associated with.
Lupe Fiasco goes on impassioned twitter rants every now and then, and last night, Complex happened to be at the center of one.
The cause of the lengthy twitter speech was an article Complex wrote about "real" hip-hop fans not appreciating What A Time To Be Alive, and their incessant need to claim that so-and-so is "real rap" while so-and-so is not. Lupe Fiasco's name was thrown into the mix, a candidate for "real" hip-hop, and thus he was pitted against the likes of Drake and Future, whom the Complex writer was ostensibly defending.
Lupe Fiasco caught wind of the article, and didn't appreciate that his name was mentioned. In response to the article link, Lupe wrote, "Keep Lupe name out that fuckshit...don't make SLR you clowns...FOH."
He continued, "If niggas don't like that shit then they don't fucking like it..stop caping for a backstage pass I fuck with both dem niggaz. Learn not to intercede on behalf of niggaz who don't give two shits about you @ComplexMag and stop using REAL MC's names in vain for likes."
He eventually targeted the writer himself, writing, "Don't mention our names with bullshit Angel you aint did enough in rap to muddy the names of niggaz who keep it alive." He added, "Your article was distasteful and unnecessary and it was fucking wack. Speak your peace but don't involve us bitch."
