What did you think of the Spin Mag article on Lupe's new video?
I thought it was a bit harsh. In general, I think that if someone has a gripe with how the message was delivered, they should voice their opinion to encourage dialogue instead of completely dismissing the song+video. But that’s an expectation reserved for a traditional hip hop magazine that has a commitment to the culture. It’s a business, and sensationalism drives web traffic. Unfortunately, Lupe’s response may have distracted people from the point he was trying to make.
My name is Mark, I used to write till I notice that there isnt majesty on the microphones anymore. I came across your God of Joy and Polaris, I instantly picked up the pen and the pad and decided to do what you are doing; Contribute to Real Hip-Hop and the true art of Flow. Heres to you ANTHM; the EMT of Emceein, Hip-hop nearly died without you.
damn Mark, that’s really high praise. thank you for reaching out, its really encouraging to hear that. I think there’s a lot of promise in independent hip hop, a lot of talent cats emerging and giving listeners a variety to choose from. Again, thank you for your words. tweet at me and i’ll follow: @NoCosign.
How can I get in touch with ANTHM directly?
what’s good, this is Ant
