What else is going on?
There was a little hip-hop drama last week. Wu-tang legend, Ghostface Killah recently released a follow-up collab album (Twelve Reasons to Die II) with one of my favorite producers, Adrian Younge, but it looks like it wasn’t enough for Action Bronson. On SportsNation, Bronson stated that Ghost’s music isn’t really relevant anymore and Ghostface had some choice words about it. The two rappers have been compared ever since Bronson emerged and Bronson has since apologized for his comment, but it looks like he was unsuccessful in convincing Ghostface so I guess we’ll have to leave it at that.
Also, Kanye West must not have been too stoked with the shotput performances at this year’s Pan Am Games in Canada and decided to give it a try himself. After the sound cut out mid-performance at the closing ceremony, Kanye was a little upset (understandably) and thought tossing the mic in the air as high as he could would help resolve the technical issue...don’t think it worked.
