A Conversation with Rhymefest

The Good Folks over at sent me an interview they did with Rhymefest recently, (THANX) and of course they asked him about the political debacle that he took part in with Lupe on Okayplayer.

"Last week you had the internet ablaze and the blogs buzzing due to your political debate with Lupe Fiasco. It was refreshing to see two rappers have a peaceful and productive discussion – did you think it would escalate to that level?"

Nah, I really didn’t care. My whole thing is to inform the public in a responsible, truthful way. There’s a new Intellectual Drop Squad in town and any time you say some dumb shit, we’re gonna call yo’ ass out. You know what I’m saying? Shout out to Phonte, No I.D. and Killer Mike. This is the new Intellectual Drop Squad, and in 2008, we’re not gonna let rappers – whoever they are, wherever they may be – get away with the same dumb shit you got away with last year. We’re calling your ass out - period. We’re not even saying “Fuck you as an artist”, we’re saying “tell the people the truth.”
