Spin Magazine recently wrote an article where they gave their opinion on "Bitch Bad" . In the article, they say that the song and its video are "mansplaining...half-baked conscious hip-pop...muddled, measly-mouthed missive...reckless social commentary...poorly thought-out grab for attention" and claim that Lupe has a "moronic lyrics-over-everything attitude".
Well, Lupe came across the article and he isn't too happy about it. He took to Twitter and encouraged the boycotting of Spin Magazine, stating:
Spin Magazine really be on one...so #BitchBad is "half- baked conscious hip-hop" huh? 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.#BoycottSpinMagazine immediately got an overwhelming amount of support from fans and eventually trended in the US. What do you think of Spin Magazine's analysis of "Bitch Bad"? Leave your thoughts in the comments below!
Yeah I think a #SpinMagazineBoycott may be in order...sick of the foolishness.So yeah now you have my undivided and unshakable attention #BoycottSpinMagazine "All that I can stands and I can't stands no more"...
It is there opinion...I agree...and my opinion is #BoycottSpinMagazine So I guess we're even...tshirts coming soon. My dignity and my respect for my art is of more value than a few visits to your website and your measly cover price. Tonight I'm dedicating Radiohead's "Just" to the slow and messy demise of #BoycottSpinMagazine... "You did it to yourself." - Love Thom!
