Is a certain first wave Rap blogger from Chicago actually now a shadowy industry P.R figure masquerading as an impartial journalist at Pitchfork, The Fader and Complex as the latest Blogger beef on Twitter suggested yesterday?
Isn't it a bit rich for Brendan Soderberg to accuse anyone of being a clandestine P.R guy when rumours swirl that he's on Codie G's payroll, and he clearly uses SPIN magazine as an outlet to push music by his Rapper buddies and continue his internet vendetta against A$AP Rocky's manager at the expense of innocent parties like the artists on A$AP Worldwide Records?
Is it okay for ya boy Dickie Tre Mane AKA Picture Me Rollie Pemberton right chea to post a Chicago Rap song today if it's from 4 years ago, and does Barry Mannilow know Cadence Weapon raids his wardrobe?
How ironic is it that Mic Terror's henchest performance and most traditional Rap-de-Rap song to date should've derived from a forgotten Imeem mixtape featuring a gaggle of otherwise mediocre tracks by 2008 Hypebeast-Rap Blog mainstays like Pac Div, The Cool Kids, Mickey Factz, Dom Kennedy and Kidz In The Hall?
