Vibe Is Sippin' On Haterade

Kanye, Lupe, and Pharrell are the latest solo stars to form a supergroup, but will they last? VIBE.com looks at other possible super groups, and why they would or would not work.

The idea of an infinite urban group knotted together by (mildly and fiery) successful solo artists is no virgin to the music world. Following the allure are Benjamin-backpackers Kanye West, Pharell Williams, and Lupe Fiasco, who in May 2007 introduced themselves as the lefty power bloc CRS (Child Rebel Soldiers) and premiered the balmy, retrospective “US Placers”, from ‘Ye’s Can’t Tell Me Nothing mixtape. That, along with N.E.R.D.'s “Everyone Nose” remix, and the just released Rebel Music mixtape, hosted by Pharrell and featuring blended tracks by him, Kanye, and Lupe, has quickly webbed CRS a strong following of supporters patiently waiting for the group’s ’08 debut. However, as the guys attempt to seal the title as hip hop’s greatest super-group, they should be forewarned that birthing a potent assemblage of previously autonomous players aint always cake.

previously autonomous? that just shows you vibe hasn't been doin' their research. lupe and kanye have been friends since lupe came into the game. pharrel's been wit lupe since food and liqour came out(they did i gotcha and chad hugo produced some songs as well).
its all good though, let the haters hate. us placers alone, imo, is one of the best songs of this decade. God knows what they could do with a whole album.

Fuck what Vibe says. Everything I've heard from CRS was dope. They fail to realize that all three of you are musical masterminds and you have a great direction with music.
