Lupe Says He’ll See Vibe in Court

Ok, this is the final Fiascogate post. Lupe says that Vibe took his comments completely out of context (I know the feeling). He says those statements were made long before the Hip-Hop Honors incident even occured. He says he sent them a C&D this morning and he plans to sue for defamation of character.

Lupe Fiasco Speaks to Kay Slay 

And on that note, I’m done with this.

    Who thinks this will affect his album sales?

    Lupe needs to stop. He’s been playing himself crazy over what could have been a minor incident if he hadn’t been so defensive and over the top in his responses.

    Am I a stan? on first listen I liked it but not loved it. Hovs flow sounds a lil lazy as usual on album stuff lately. Beat is crazy. Adlibs are annoying.
    Third listen Im liking his flow more. beat still crazy. adlibs still annoying kinda. keep in mind hearing this on the computer speakers. six in the morning in addis.
