Busta Rhymes Discusses Lil Wayne’s Negative Remarks About New York.


“Everybody’s entitled to their opinion,” NY native Busta said Wednesday on Hot 97 personality Angie Martinez’s afternoon show to promote his new free LP Year of the Dragon.  In fact, Busa Bus has similar feelings toward El Paso, Texas, after he and his entourage were arrested after performing there several years back. “It don’t mean I don’t like the people there, it don’t mean I don’t like my support, my love, but I don’t like El Paso,” the Dungeon Dragon stated, making his point very clear. “My experience in El Paso makes me not like it. I haven’t done another show there since.”  As far as his buddy Weezy, Busta understands why he’s down on the Big Apple. On Monday, MTV News asked Wayne how it felt to perform in New York on August 14 with Nicki Minaj.

“You know, flat out: I don’t like New York,” Weezy said before saying he had an “awesome” time on stage with Nicki.  State Senator Malcolm A. Smith of Queens was “angry,” “taken aback” and “shocked” by Lil Wayne’s contempt for his beloved city, according to The New York Times, so much so that he organized a conference in Father Duffy Square, between West 46th and West 47th Streets, on Wednesday to demand an apology.  “If you don’t like New York,” Smith said, according to the NY Times, “you don’t have to come to New York. You don’t have to sell your products here. And perhaps we won’t come to your concerts.”

Kanye West’s Album Cover BANNED In The U.S.


 

The Original Cover Art for "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy"

 

For reasons unknown to me, (or to Kanye West, apparently) his album cover for ‘My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy‘ was banned yesterday.  Kanye’s twitter has been atwit with tweets about the subject all day long.  (I told you I could used the word “Atwit” in a sentence Chris, you owe me $100).  Maybe because it’s a black man and a white woman, in which case I may be in trouble, but who knows.  Hopefully details about the reasons behind the ban will come out soon, but lets see how long it takes his people to come up with a new cover, and how dope the second draft will be.
