  1. Chief Keef laughed at his death on Twitter and also posted a comment from his official Youtube channel on the video they're talking about and said Rest in Piss and that Cash Out was next. Yea no proof.

  3. Wtf 50 shut up! Smh Keef is the victim now? He was attacked and "fought" back?! He comes from the streets dealing with murder and drugs and acts as if he handles that with no problem. He embraces that crap but when ppl in the industry speak on his negative influence to the rap culture he gets his feelings hurt so that makes his attitude ok? 50 said " I like the idea of chief Keef just like I like soulja boy" that shit right shows why the rap game is wack now. You've got one controversial rapper vouching for another controversial "rapper" that he's comparing to one of the lamest "rappers" in the game!!!!

  4. Love Lupe to death.. But in a way 50 does have a point. Lupe didn't have to name drop him like that when it came to discussing the violence in chicago. Even if he wasn't speaking about keef directly. Could of just as easily said something like "some of the younger artist" etc etc.. But it is what it is. I don't listen to Chief Keef nor do I agree with the type of music he drops.. I mean with a dude like keef we shouldn't be surprised that he said something back to Lupe after that even if Lu meant no harm. It's kinda like giving someone a inch and they respond with a mile. Just my two cents..

  5. ^@anonymous above:
    Lupe was specifically asked about his thoughts on Cheif Keef and other new Chicago MCs.(Not about Chicago Violence)
    "He just answered the question without sugarcoating.

    Please, lets get the facts right:

  6. Yeah, Lupe was specifically asked about Keef and he just responded. 50 does raise a valid point about how Keef may have perceived his comments. What's interesting is I find both 50 and Lupe to be very intelligent and I mutually respect both of their craft. I've heard 50's comments on why his music should be categorized as conscious and I've heard him make indirect comments toward Lupe. It'd be interesting to hear these two have a discussion, it would be very interesting.

  8. Ve always been taught that there are two for of education, one you get from book and the one you get from your parents. Parents are supposed to guide there kids and differentiate wrong from right. 50 is basically saying what chief did is okay beacause he is a victim of his environment. In a way I sympathize with chief because it wasn't his choice to be born a black man in the ghetto with bad temptations all around him. He probably even has aspergers syndrome. But with that said, he is clearly in the wrong and no one expect for Lu tried to let him know that in public. You can't fix your problem if you don't realize it is a problem in the first place. I though 50 was smarter then that but his comments and his discography remind me that he's not.

    Also, I don't know if y'all noticed but in the past months interviews, Lu has been trying to avoid giving his honest opinion.especially after the Obama comment. When he finally gave a generalized opinion to a very specific question, shit gets blown out of proportion and dudes wanna start killing you. Lu didn't deserve none of this at all.

  9. I think that 50, and "artists" like him are genuinely threatened By Wasalu. He is the true artist, a story teller.

    They don't like him because he shows them up, makes them look stupid. And the more famous he gets, the more educated people become... They start really disliking the bullshit that everyone else pushes. If this makes me "Elitist" then so be it. But I will not stand for bullshit being propagated. Music changes people, and its been changing people for the worst too often lately, but I digress.

    With regard to 50, I think he's secretly glad at the prospect of Lupe's intended retirement. He stupid, but smart enough to know that Lu is bad for business.

    Record execs must be thinking the same thing. Cheif keef is like the anti-lupe... Lupe also had a record deal by the time he graduated if I'm not mistaken?

  10. ^^ none of that makes sense. Kids and masses don't suddenly think being more aware is cool if lupe is brought into a brighter light in entertainment. That's not how the industry n marketing work.

  11. Somehow I doubt 50 cares about Lu retiring. This is pretty much the first time I've heard him mention Lupe by name. But I do respect both of their catalogues whulst different and speaking from different perspectives. But Lupe is an MC, which 50 aint been since PoD

  12. I don't see how lupe was wrong at all. When your promoting violence in a violent environment you can't get mad if someone makes a connection even if it's not directly your fault. From a more general aspect every artist catches shit about what they put out in there music regardless of what it is. Lupe catches hell all the time, 50 cent caught hell, Em, Meek Millz, no matter what you promote your gunna catch hell. Lupe, in my opinion, came at is at humble as possible. All he said was what Chief Keef represents scares him cuz its violent he didn't say anything over critical about the kid. Just stated his opinion followed by some statitics in his city. For homie to react like that was unprofessional. I know your only 17 and new to this world but he's just gunna have to get use to people being on his head and not throw little temper tantroms about it. Welcome to the industry kid. Deal with it. And don't come at veterans so disrespectfully cuz I'm sure noone would even really be on chief keef too tough if he didn't react so immaturely and aggressively. Like he was saying your music is aggressive and then you respond aggressively. I'm sure Lupe meant no disrespect, yet you respond so disrespectfully. He's the one who turned it into a situation.

  13. 50 Cent is just siding with Chief because its that behind-the-scenes politics going on with Lupe in particular that Lupe spoke on about being "black-balled". You side with a nigga that laughs at another human being's death and glamorizes violence? But does not congratulate the man who speaks critically about the detriment that violent image has on the youth that is out here dying? Saying you want to smack someone for speaking critically of the negative influence you may have on youth is an immature and aggressive way to respond. One of the 3 things fueling youth violence...aggression. Enough said.

  14. If you listen attentively, you will know that 50 cent isn't dismissing Lupe's statements either. Both points are valid. Chief Keef makes very violent music (Lupe) but he is a product of a very violent environment (50).

    Personally, I think it is more effective to critique the people/institutions that create the toxic environments that force Chief Keef and others to create the art that he makes. He's only 16 years old doing what he can to create better options for his child.

    As much as I love Lupe, he was fortunate enough to have parents that exposed him to things outside of his immediate environment. Not everyone has that opportunity.
