benzino is not here for macklemore’s grammy win.
so what does he do?
take a stand on twitter just how we like it!
he said he was trying to warn “us” this would happen years ago.
he’s mad we didn’t take heed and “let them invade our culture“.
hiphop dx has the story…
Benzino sent a series of tweets (January 27) saying that he warned of the type of success a rapper like Macklemore had at the Grammys (January 26).
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis won four Grammys (January 26), including Best Rap Album and Best Rap Song. Macklemore said during an interview with New York radio station Hot 97 that was published today that he knows why he and Lewis were so successful at the award show.
“In terms of the people that are voting on those ballots, filling out those bubbles, we have an unfair advantage due to race, due to the fact we had huge radio success, due to the fact that our name was circulating more in a pocket in the industry of people filling out that ballot,” Macklemore said. “This is not like a Rap Radar poll, like a 2DopeBoyz poll. This is not a Hot 97 poll. This is the Grammys. This is many different types of people. All different age groups filling out a ballot where they might not necessarily know the genre.”
well i sort of agree with zino.
personally i love eminem as much as i love jay and nem.
i have almost every eminem album and he is talented.
my opinion that macklemore shouldn’t have won jack still stands.
kendrick, jay, drake, and even ye whole albums>>>>>macklemore’s oxygen.
….then he gonna post this on his ( x instagram ):
blacks in entertainment have a lot of room to talk tho.
they were all fawning over: miley cyrus and justin bieber.
all the rappers were cosigning the “white ratchet” fuckery.
chicks been twerking since the 90s,
but when miley does it,
suddenly its fascinating?
“get miley on our song STAT!”
justin bieber hanging with the raggamuffins and this is spawned:
i don’t think we as black people realize how talented and creative we are.
don’t get mad when the “culture vultures” get comfortable.
lowkey: do they usually announce rap album live?
