Lupe Fiasco & Pete Rock Aren’t Totally On Good Terms Yet Afterall

After Lupe released a song over a redone version of Pete Rock’s classic T.R.O.Y. beat and Pete expressed his displeasure on Twitter, the two seemed to have patched it up, both tweeting that they spoke with one another and even have something in the works. Somehow something didn’t go as planned, and it seems Lupe is not okay with the whole thing now. He called into Shade 45 this morning and revealed the issue is still ongoing. Listen to the interview below. Can’t we all just get along! Marisa Mendez

Lupe Fiasco & Pete Rock Reconcile Over “T.R.O.Y.” Remake

On Monday night, Lupe Fiasco released a new track off his forthcoming project. The song, “Around My Way,” was over Pete Rock’s classic “T.R.O.Y.” beat, but slightly redone as they couldn’t get the rights to the original. When Pete Rock caught wind of the new version, he was very upset that a song so personal to him had been remade in such a fashion, and took to his Twitter to express his anger not so much toward Lupe but the whole thing in general, specifically the producer. Lupe touched on the topic yesterday during an interview, but now it seems the two have spoke and patched it up and all is well. Details below. Marisa Mendez

Producer @PeteRock Shows A Strong Disapproval Towards New Lupe Fiasco Song Remaking T.R.O.Y.

In reaction to Lupe Fiasco’s latest release, legendary hip hop producer Pete Rock has lashed out on Twitter due to Lupe’s effort in remaking Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth’s dedication to fallen Heavy D & the Boyz’ member & cousin Troy Dixon aka “Trouble” T. Roy off their 1992 LP “Mecca and the Soul Brother”. Though Pete says he’s a fan of Lupe’s, his Tweets available after the jump show a strong dislike for the new song. Dj RellyRell
