You want war? The wig crypt’s glowstick carrying E.F. Hutton is back to telling it how it is and not how it was via finger banging.
Solange took to her Twitter account over the weekend to slam music blogs for hiring writers to critique music genres they don’t connect with, writing:
“Some of these music blogs could actually benefit from hiring people who REALLY understand the culture of R&B to write about R&B. Some of these music blogs could actually benefit from hiring people who REALLY understand the culture of hip hop to write about hip hop.”

“Like you really should know about deep Brandy album cuts before you are giving a ‘grade’ or a ‘score’ to any R&B artist. And ivy league credentials don’t give you any insight on ‘grading’ a rappers body of work . . . when you’ve had no access to the REAL culture. There are SO many gifted writers who truly understand. Who didn’t get hip to R&B & Hip-Hop via the crossover artist of their childhood. Just hire them please, so you can stop insulting peeps knowledge.”
“So you can stop acting like it just popped off last year for R&B. Like it just got interesting and experimental. So you can stop praising every rapper who raps over a trap beat, but can’t form literate sentences and then you market it as some hip shit. And that wasn’t a rant. It was an observation and a request.”
