Lupe Fiasco decides to vent via Twitter today, and really GOES IN.
The Chicago rapper is completely disappointed with today’s MTV, and wants the old one back.
Lupe spoke to his followers earlier today, and shed light on his views of the Viacom owned network. Check out what Lupe had to say…
I think I’ve been very good natured with you. I personally know several employees of your company. You guys know me as well. I’m confused
Where is the true music journalism??? where is Suchin?!! What happened? Where are the honest critiques of cultural expression?
For it’s not about being RIGHT it’s about being HOT Fame over self-awareness and virtue Hedonism over self respect Celebrity over cerebral.
A destroying force in our culture and society just like rest of the useless vapid spectacles that pour out of our tv’s and radios
What are we supposed to be learning from you? What is your point? Do you have a point beyond corporate sponsored distraction?
Your a materialistic shell of your former self that can only identify with celebrity pageantry and instant gratification
Corporate garbage pushing plastic lifestyles and wasteful, destructive behavior into the brains of the youth of the world
So when your relevance thins in2 a whisper & the stock price collapses and you have 2 come 2 grips with the mess you made. I’ll be here 4 ya
We’ll be here. With hands full of baby powder 2 smack some sense back into your body & a warm shoulder to cry on. We want the REAL MTV back!”
Lupe is displaying his OBVIOUS disapproval for the direction that Viacom has decided to take MTV Network. Unfortunately, realistically Lupe’s rant will probably go unheard.
