‘Just go f**k yourself.’
With VH1 placing a spotlight on the South for this year’s Hip-Hop Honors and how they have been able to revolutionize music, there is one trendsetter that isn’t such a happy camper.
Uncle Luke, known for his role as a member of the 2 Live Crew, is disappointed that he will not be honored for his work on the solo tip and he is only being showcased for his work in the group.
Speaking with VIBE, Luke expressed his frustrations of not being recognized for his contributions in the business aspect and his overall history.
“They want to honor Master P for his business savvy and they want to honor Jermaine Dupri for his business savvy and I’m kind of offended by that. We have basically been talking it out, but it’s just so sad that people just don’t know my history. They try to link me with a group and not see me as a businessman. Luke Records was the first independent black owned record company owned by a rapper. We were the first to distribute our own product. There’s just so many first…For an organization like VH1 to try to say I’m just the first person to go to the Supreme Court over music censorship and be a part of the 2 Live Crew…I told them the other day, ‘Just go Fawk yourself.’ We were even the first to have a street team.”
He even added that he might be ready to just take his ball and go home if people aren’t willing to play the game the right way.
“I don’t want to be a part of it unless you honor what I’ve done in a proper way. I’ve never asked anyone to do anything. But when you ask me to be a part of something, I’m not going to let you disrespect me.”
…sigh…There’s just no winning these days.
