A Letter To Eskay And Byron Crawford
Wow. You both know how much I love, live for blog beef. That shit right there is what brought me to this game in the first place. Being that we somewhat fit into the Hip Hop blogger category, it's most definitely par for the course. It's kinda weird though, when two of my favorite bloggers actually get into it against each other. Especially two bloggers that I'm personally cool with. You already know how I came into the game on Byron's site, that right there is a debt of gratitude that I can never forget. And Eskay showing me continuous support, from personally coming out to my book signing to endorsing this blog through the links and what not, whose effin' with that? I'll be the first to admit that beef in this arena has been overdue for some time now, I just didn't expect that it'd be between you two.
Byron, you did fire the first shot by insinuating that the homie was somehow on some payola payroll ish (as if you didn't know). And then you blasted again. We all know how you get down, you're the original shit talker and I get that. From my perspective though, seeing how hard Eskay goes in on the daily over at Nahright, it's more than apparent that the man takes a great deal of pride in his work. So much even that I can see where dude might could get offended by someone calling into question the very shit that makes him one of the very few that's on top of his game: his integrity. Plus the fact that Eskay rarely goes out his lane to eff with other bloggers on some stray shots shit, one can deduce that he's really not the one to play. But eff it, that's what you do, that's what's kept your name on people's screens for so long, you are the original shock blogger and I respect that. I would never ever suggest you switch your style up, I dig your game that much, plus that's not why I'm here. And I'm doubting very much that you would ever take too kindly to any types of suggestions of that sort. I'm just saying maybe, just maybe, you might be enjoying pushing dude's buttons a lil too much.
Eskay, I hear you man, sometimes you just gotta get shit off yer chest, let a knicca know when playtime is over. At the same time, you been in this game long enough to know how Crawford gets down. That nigga be on his best prowl trying to get under EVERBODY's skin. I'm surprised he ain't come for me yet. I see how you run a tight ship and make it a point to stay out of the bullshit, how you remain focused on building the empire that is the Nahright brand, but you been already know how this dude is, enjoying the fact that he set someone off, while he's chilling out in the mid-west, way off in the comforts of his home. Some battles are most definitely worth it, this one, in my humble opinion, is not. Still and all though, gotta respect your gully for drawing the line in the sand. I didn't expect to see you coming, but I can always expect and respect how every now and then, you just gotta check someone. Plus, I see how you kept it moving with like the next 20 posts in the same day, and without blinking an eye. Heh.
Grown men are gonna be grown men and I'm not here to play mediator to a peace treaty on some Russell Simmons/ Ben Chavis ish. If it's a beef ya'll have, then so be it, I'ma just have to pull up a chair and watch how this shit transpires from the sidelines. I guess what I'm really trying to say is that I'm kinda fucking mad that I gotta remain all neutral and shit, not being able to jump in with the flagrant comments and diss co-signs whenever the opportunity arises. Two of my favorite bloggers going at it is not the beef I've been waiting for. Especially when all this bullshit kinda originated with the white boy dropping an ambiguously racial twitter comment.
