Old school rap legend Luther “Uncle Luke” Campbell is certainly not one to hold his tongue!
The former leader of 2 Live Crew, best known ‘booty music’ with raunchy lyrics, recently offered his take on ghostwriting, which led to him blaming the demise of hip hop to a new dating trend… ‘wifin h**s.’
Campbell says the industry has totally changed since he was in it and in a recent interview with WatchLOUD, he gives Kanye West (who famously ‘wifed’ Amber Rose then officially ‘wifed’ Kim Kardashian) props for being a “trendsetting” musical pioneer, stating:
It used to be a difference, before Kanye West, rappers wasn’t wifin’ all these h**s. Rappers would be secure with they woman. You look at Ice Cube. He’s always been with is wife. Look at Will Smith. He’s always been with her.
Hip-hop was different. We didn’t get caught up in the Hollywood thing, where, OK rappers are now marrying Hollywood girls, leaving one, going to the next one, leaving this one. We didn’t do that. I mean, we were like real secure. We wasn’t marrying girls or wifin’ girls for the Internet to blow up.
It’s totally different nowadays.

This pic will probably go down as one of my all time favorite Instagram posts!
Antwan ‘Big Boi’ Patton posted this shot as he, Andrè 3000 Benjamin and and Kanye West (who actually smiled!) hit an Atlanta area Waffle House for some late night cuisine early Sunday morning (June 21, 2015).
Kanye headlined the annual Birthday Bash concert Saturday evening and the trio had just left the afterparty, which was held at Compound (pics coming soon). Fonzworth Bentley played middleman as he got all the legendary musicians to hang out.
As any good ATLien knows… ‘after the club, it’s the Waffle House’ and I can only imagine the reception the three rap kings received as they walked into Atlanta’s favorite late night eatery with all their friends!

Kanye West‘s Billboard Music Awards Performance was mostly mute Sunday night when it was highly censured by ABC.

Many assumed that the eccentric rapper may have purposely over-utlized a few curse words in an effort to disrespect live television… resulting in his entire performance being bleeped out.
Apparently… that wasn’t the case, and in a statement issued about the incident, Kanye expenses disappointment about his performance being ‘grossly over-censured’ and says he faced ‘unwarranted censorship’ for words like ‘black leather jeans’.

Kanye West hit the stage for the crowd raising closing act of the 2015 Billboard Music Awards last night (May 17, 2015) but the performance didn’t seem to go quite as planned.
Many predicted West’s performance would be the ‘most talked about’ set of the evening as he was scheduled to perform at least two of his hit songs.
Kanye, who was introduced by his two sister’s in-law, Kyle & Kendall Jenner, performed his latest single “All Day” and “Black Skinhead,” off Yeezus, complete with sparks, flames, dancing, and everything you’d expect from the superstar…. yet there were several issues.
First, smoke from the onstage flames prevented the television viewing audience from even SEEING Ye, (who slayed onstage along with Allan Kingdom and Theophilus London, and then performed his Yeezus cut solo).
Second, and most importantly, the television audience couldn’t HEAR most of the performance since ABC ended up bleeping out about 75% of it.

Kanye West’s fame may be worldwide, but he’s apparently lacking in fans in the United Kingdom.
It was just a few days ago that West was blasted about his ‘disrespectful attitude’ and ‘materialism’ by a group proclaiming to be the infamous Anonymous hacktivist organization (click HERE if you missed that), well now he’s being blasted for those same personality traits yet again!
West is scheduled to headline during England’s prestigious Glastonbury Festival this Summer, and the announcement has prompted nearly 60,000 presumed rock-enthusiasts to sign a petition demanding that organizers cancel ‘Ye’s performance.
“Kanye West is an insult to music fans all over the world,” wrote petition-starter Neil Lonsdale, apparently speaking for music fans all over the world (or, at the very least, the U.K.). “This egotistical, maniacal, disgrace was a clear oversight,” he continued. “There is still time to correct this.”
