I guess it would be too much to ask for Officer Ricky Ross to show some class, and take his loss at last night’s Soul Train Awards to Eminem like a man.
Eminem’s “Love The Way You Lie” featuring Rihanna took home the award for best hip hop song. That was apparently too much too take for Ross, who threw a tantrum and stormed out because his song “BMF” didn’t get the award.
Dude even skipped his scheduled performance.
Singer Chrisette Michele who has worked with Ross in the past, took to her blog to express her displeasure with his immaturity and the black eye it gave Hip Hop.
Award Show :
“If this is the way hip hop is then I denounce it.
This is not about ego. This is about what I can bring to the world. My life is for the people. I live to give.
It’s my desire to bring life and freedom light and love everywhere I go. Upward mobility in the brown skinned community.
Who stands off at an award show because they don’t win? An award is winning at being as “stuck in a category” as possible. Congratulations to all the trophy holders who won at being the most like every one else.
I could have sworn hip hop was on the come up. But apparently rapping is about venting, bashing, chauvinistic pigging, and EGO. Not cool,
from the bottom of my disappointed heart. Hip Hop… Man up. I wanted to be supportive but I can’t understand you. I believed in you… But apparently you’re so high you can’t even see what the world needs.
Is all hip hop like that? Absolutely not! But some of it certainly is. Let me spit a few bars. I’m not that kinda hip hop. I rep hip hop too. But not that kinda ego trippin foolery.
