Lupe Fiasco Respond to Offset saying 90’s Rappers To Kiss Migos Feet
Many are slamming Offset for trying to use old 90’s to promote his Father Of 4 album. During his recent interview, set thinks that Eminem, Snoop Dog to wash their feet. Offset is far away from old rapper meanwhile it’s a way he wants to push his released project.
“I always say it, if you’re an older artist, you should be thanking us, kissing our feet,” Offset agreed. “Not just the Migos. How we turned the culture of music. Number one, Hip Hop? In life, Hip Hop has never been the number one genre, ever. So what were you doing that is better? Right now when you go to Spotify (etc.) you’re not seeing the other genres. People listen to Hip Hop more than any other time. So you should be saluting us.” Set said
On our last post he then said old rapper to kiss their feet. He has just argue about new hiphop and old hiphop by saying such although since his interview nobody has reponded but yesterday Lupe Fiasco has to save older rapper from Offset on Instagram.
“The disconnect…The Reconnect. Firstly let me say that I’m a huge fan of the Migos (specifically Emitt Smith & Fight Night. Also when I go to the club I only really get up and dance dance my little dance to
Migos. True story) Secondly let me say that the only visceral problem with brother offsets statement is the use of the cliche
“kissing feet”. That’s not a sign of respect that’s an act of subjugation of something lower to something higher and as Busta
Rhymes told me when it comes to rap there are no classes, or superiors vs inferiors. We are all a team. Each with individual attributes that add their special
skill set and energy to the whole. The metrics of industry don’t successfully define the essence of hiphop nor do they replace its legacy or the efforts of its
pioneers who achieved great things with little to nothing in terms of materials (i.e. the internet and massive marketing
budgets) and from that poverty of capital created a Culture, not a business, a legitimate Culture and were actively combatted by opposing forces from all walks of life. Streaming and selling records
is only a part of the project that is hip hop. It’s a great feeling and milestone to sell a million records and be celebrated for that
achievement. But it is just as great to be an amazing lyricist respected by thousands or just 1 for your abilities to craft amazing
pieces of communication that can operate to influence society as a whole not just exclusively on a dance floor. Hip hop got its RESPEC” Lupe Fiasco Said on instagram
