Talk about getting back on the radar. After dropping the vid for “B**ch Bad,” Lupe Fiasco knew he’d be stirring up controversy, however, he probably was not expecting Spin Magazine to attack the clip and song itself. The article trashed “B**ch Bad” in as many ways as possible, calling it a “muddled, mealy-mouthed missive about rap and misogyny,” reckless social commentary,” and claimed that Lupe has a “moronic ‘lyrics over everything’ attitude.” Ouch.
Lupe was definitely not happy with the review and took his thoughts to twitter where he counter argued.
I see why you call yourself “Spin” cuz that’s all u do. To not like an artist soooo much you sure spend an awful lot of time cooking up eloquent garbage about him…stop reaching…it’s sad. Sensationalism and half-truth runs the media. Practice real journalism or put fold out boy band posters in your mag and call it a day.
He promoted a Spin Magazine boycott with the hashtag #SpinMagazineBoycott and is continuing his attempt to organize the event via tweets.
