    Really glad that he addressed it, even though I think it is ridiculous that he would even have to. I never knew making a song for a soundtrack meant that you "sold out"

lol word, never knew that. either way he wouldn't get funding for a video and shit if the song wasn't meant to appeal for someone. Even the music we consider crappy, there's a reason why its getting funding, they wouldn't sell something no one buys.

NO disrespect Gram, but he did produce it... and even he stated it wasn't meant to be hip-hop, it was meant to be rock... so ya I guess your right when you say bad song for the 'hip-hop' fan, but it wasn't targeted towards them lol

great way to clear things up

It was a bad song, for the hip hop fan though. I read Lupe didn't even right the song, they just wanted his voice on it, so i guess its good publicity. People may not understand, rappers want to remain on their labels and make albums that get good shipping so that they can be heard! Alot of people love the underground hip hop because it "represents true hip hop" I'm srry, but i don't think Kool Herc wanted everyone to remain broke.

I never gave Twilight/ New Moon a chance b/c I think the idea of it is dumb, vampires don't appeal to me in any way and the main actor of the movie kinda creeps me out.. but I'm not going to go around saying I can't stand it and hate it with a passion because I've never read or watched it, I mean a lot of people (not just young girls) like it so it can't be that bad right? I dunno maybe it is? But I'm not going to lose respect and stop being a fan of lu b/c of this... I mean the video doesn't make any sense to me... but it doesn't take away from the fact that he's still the same lupe, a talented artist who was given an opportunity to widen his audience... not a corny sellout that cares more about money then the actual art itself.

I don't believe in reading anything modern, all the geniuses are either dead or parapalegic. You learn more from the trailblazers than the brats living in the solace those trailblazers fought for.

he's dodging the man point system questions. The only way to watch twilight and not points them is if you go to see it with at least 5 girls. on a date. at the same time.

i never said harry potter and twilight were literary masterpieces, but i dont believe that dogging on them because you dont understand them is respectful either.
nIANja909's picture

I'm sure you think harry Potter & Twilight are masterpieces of the modern literature world bro, but I'm just saying, there is more out there then these cheesy ass tweeny books. And these come nowhere even remotely close to being exceptional pieces of work. And seriously, anyone who doesn't believe in the Man Point System is just ignorant.

@ nianja clearly your parents failed you at teaching you any sort of respect or manners. and clearly you have no knowledge in regards to "real literature". im sure the millions of children all of the world that read through a 7 book series with over 500 pages per book have read more than you have in your literary life; or should i say, lack thereof.

Ian I will slit your throat and personally get Edward and Victoria to bite you. I read book generally and read all four books before the movies came out. . it had nothing to dow tih the movie so you fail. "And loooool @ "for those who actually even read anymore". You sound like the dumb ass parents who were all happy a few years back when Harry Potter got their kids reading again, not realizing that it also lowered their intelligence levels vastly, and made them anti-social rejects for the rest of their lives."- Now you know I'm not touchy but this coming from the same niggah who joined every lu site? you have no say cus lets be honest you contradict yourself there. Just because you dont understand it doesn't mean you should demonize it.

real fans dont support the artist in evreything they do- thats being a sheep. if he released a hate speak song would you support it? and man points are real. lighten up
nIANja909's picture

lool @ the adolescents these days. If you actually think Twilight or any of them s***s are good literature / film you are trippin. Sorry Oloni, but this is a terrible excuse for lit or film. It's a "GUILTY Pleasure", because you should be ashamed to even like somethin like this. And loooool @ "for those who actually even read anymore". You sound like the dumb ass parents who were all happy a few years back when Harry Potter got their kids reading again, not realizing that it also lowered their intelligence levels vastly, and made them anti-social rejects for the rest of their lives. And on top of that, they ain't even read anything worth while, instead, they kept readin lame ass Harry potter books. Now ain't that some s***, Talk about backfired.

first off i would like to just add that the twilight series is a definite good read, for those who actually even read anymore. rather than just sitting in front of your laptops and computers reading rumors and gossip. if you're a real fan, you support what the artist you admire does, his decision to be a part of the series is his own, and if you don't at least appreciate it or even try to understand it then its your loss. stop making a big deal out of nothing. and lastly, "lack of man points"? how old are you anyways? stop being so judgmental.

awil - watching twilight is detrimental to your man points on the scale the nukes were detrimental to hiroshima. I'm making sure my curtains are shut just incase someone sees the advert on the left
