REAL TALK!!! I don't see one artist in the game that put Melle Mel, Kool Moe Dee or Grandmaster Caz on their new song or let them perform on the VMA's (Including Me) but people wanna have a problem with @macklemore for paying homage to them? We don't acknowledge our own & get mad when another color does. Now if one of them passes, then we wanna post shit about them, say RIP & get t-shirts with their picture. FOH!!!!!!! Learn about your history & preserve it now. If not, SHUT THE F*** UP!!! To me this is about real pioneers getting recognition in today's society.
I don’t really understand the hate Macklemore is receiving. Props to him for giving some Hip Hop legends some shine.
Macklemore giving some Hip Hop legends shine, respect that.
