Like we have stated in previous articles that there's a storm brewing in the hip-hop community, prepare some umbrellas because it’s going to rain hate. From Pusha T’s beef to Saigon and now Pete Rock and Lupe Fiasco. To fill everyone inn, Lu took a beat that Pete made and the legendary producer hated that.
Pete Rock reiterates that he should have been involved in the talks to remake "T.R.O.Y."
The saga continues for Lupe Fiasco and Pete Rock’s beef over the former remaking the latter’s beat from “T.R.O.Y.” for “Around My Way (Freedom Ain’t Free).”
During an interview with MTV News, the veteran producer responded to Lu’s latest rant on Shade 45’s “Sway in the Morning” where he said that the situation wasn’t remedied, despite the fact that they had publicly announced reconciliation.
"At that point, my emotions were working — I'm still thinking about Heavy D and Troy is a dear friend to me, and my emotions got the best of me, and I expressed myself on Twitter. It wasn’t my intention to hurt Lupe’s career or his producer’s career," he said, explaining that he agreed to let the beat be reused as long as he was involved with his project. “I thought from that point I would be involved with Lupe and being in the studio, tweaking the beat, but I never heard from the record label, and then I turn on the radio, and hear it on the radio.”
