For the first battle to be released from King Of The Dot‘s Carnage Event, we have a number 1 contenders match between PH and The Saurus. PH is currently undefeated in KOTD while The Saurus is looking to become 2 time KOTD champ. Who will take it in this classic match up?
Lupe Fiasco hit’s us with a new record entitled “Around The Way” Â (Freedom Ain’t Free), where the producer re-did the classic Pete Rock & CL Smooth record T.R.O.Y (They Reminisce Over You), which was a dedication to theÂ Heavy D and The Boyz member Trouble T-ROY. The song has a message and is very positive, something we need in the culture right now. So with that being said, I was on twitter when I saw the legendary @TheRealPeteRock tweet
“No disrespect to Lupe Fiasco and I like him alot butÂ T.R.O.Y should be left alone. Feel so violated,the beat is next to my heart and was madeÂ Outta anguish and pain. When it’s like that it should not be touched by no one.Â It’s so hard for folks to make original music, I possess that, but these dudes are scared of that and this is supposed to be HIP HOP?Â Man I’m a lupe fan and everything but TROY was my homie man. I think about him and Hev every fucking day!!!! Smh”….
And he continues to state that the producer should be ashamed of himself that the beat is “Wack”. So people, we will let you be the judge – do you think that T.R.O.Y is that classic that should have never been re-done or touched? Or, based on the positive message that Lupe is sending out on his song “Around The Way”, do you think it’s ok? Â You decide.
* Just so it’s known, we at MCMI Respect both artists for their body of works throughout the years.
UPDATE: We had GMS, LR Blitzkrieg, PackFM, MrMecc & Poison Pen debate and discuss results of this poll on MCMI RADIO: Real Hip Hop. Real Talk. Ep#2. You can hear the show in the player below.Â
In a promo battle its often hard to come up with a clear winner. especially when the two heavyweight combatants are so evenly matched. This seems to be the case in what can only be described as “Head Ice vs. Swave Sevah:The battle for Harlem” So who gets the win? there is so much to factor in…..Bars, charisma, believability, wordplay, crowd reaction, cohesiveness, etc..etc… I know who I thought won the night of the event and after watching the battle over I haven’t changed my mind. But I wont cloud your judgment ,Take a look and you tell me who you think came home with the “W”
Shout out to Posion Pen on his new partnership with URL and PoisonPen.TV!
