Lupe Fiasco & Talib Kweli Blast Writer For Mentioning Their Names In An Article About Drake & Future's Mixtape
(AllHipHop News) Drake and Future’s collaborative mixtape What A Time To Be Alive has received some mixed reviews from the public so far. Cleveland artist Kid Cudi seems to feel the project is mediocre, and at least one blogger has called Drake’s latest musical move awkward and ill-fitting.
Not everyone is down on what Drizzy and Future Hendrix created. But one Complex writer’s attempt to school “real rap fans” on why the need to “stop hating” on WATTBA backfired when he decided to mention Lupe Fiasco and Talib Kweli in his article.

What exactly is that “real” sh*t then? Turn up music isn’t “real” hip-hop? How so? Was the genre not invented at a goddamn party? Isn’t music about having a good time? I’m dead tired of you cats, man. You make my head hurt. Can’t be listening to Talib Kweli rap off beat and Lupe Fiasco deep cuts at BBQs. I, too, was once like you, but come on, don’t nobody wanna hear that sh*t all the f*cking time.
Fiasco saw the piece and fired back on Twitter. The “Adoration of the Magi” rhymer called out the website and the writer, telling Complex to “keep Lupe name out that f*cksh*t” and “stop using real mc’s names in vain for likes.”
Lupe even had an exchange with Diaz on the social media platform. Kweli also addressed the issue on his Twitter timeline.
