Field Mob Cops A Plea


It has come to my attention that there is a brand new blog entry on Field Mob’s Myspace page in which they attempt to dismiss that video of them making fun of New York as "fake." The statement, presumably written by one of their publicists, can be read here.

The writer claims that the clips were taken from a Raw Report DVD Magazine and that the video currently making the rounds is somehow false, and a link to the actual footage is given. 

Well, I watched the original video clip and there are in fact some differences. For one, when Smoke and Shawn J are doing their little New Yorker impersonations, text was placed over the scene that read: "Poking fun at NY slang! LMAO!!" In the original video, that text was not there.

Also, certain scenes were taken out of context such as the freestyle at the end, which was probably not directed at New Yorkers, although the editing gives that impression. 

While this is all well and good, the claim that the original video is somehow "false" is absurd. Whether or not the video was edited does not change the fact that Field Mob made all of the statements we saw them make on the original. It’s not like the audio was changed to make them say something they didn’t say, all of it is authentic. 

My big problem with that video isn’t the fact that they are making fun of New York slang, because honestly we make fun of Southerner’s slang all the time up here. My problem is with the statements made about the phrase "Let’s bring New York back."

For whatever reason, some people tend to interpret that statement as a subliminal shot at the South, which seems to me like a sign of insecurity. If ya’ll run shit the way you claim you do, why even worry about what others are saying? Is it that serious that you have to pick apart and analyze such an innocent statement in order to find an insult? 

I mean I see ya’ll are running around showing an awful lot of pride in your region, but when we do the same it’s a problem? If so then that’s your own goddam problem, because I’ll tell you right now, our sense of pride isn’t going anywhere. 

Truthfully, I would’ve respected Field Mob more if they would’ve just stood by their statements. If you’re gonna talk shit then talk it, but don’t try to cop plea after you see a backlash brewing. Talking about "Field Mob in no way has beef with anybody in NY." Yeah, whatever, you probably should of thought of that before you came out your face sideways.

Anyway, in the interest of improving East/South relations, I think we should all just forget about all of this nonsense. The truth is we’re arguing over shit that we will never agree on. New York will always feel it is the premier region in hip hop and so will the South. We should be spending this time and energy doing something constructive rather than bickering over greasy comments and creatively edited DVD’s.

    You have to admit that the top guys in the rap game come from NewYork: Jay-Z and 50cent. Even though Kanye is from Chicago we can all see that his style is 100% Backpacker NewYork stlye HipHop. And with a huge number of New York freshmen on the rise (Saigon, Cory Gunz, Jae Millz, Papoose, my nigga Tru Life…ect) New York seems as if it could be bigger than ever!

    @ Eskay
