What Do you think of Lupe's TROY Remake? Is Pete Rock right that it should be left alone? Or Did Lupe do a good job remaking a classic? Please no trolling Adam :p

I can't wait for Lupe's album. It's gonna dump on Lasers something vicious.

Apparently Lupe's team reached out to Pete rock months ago for clearance to rap over TROY. This was around the time Heavy D died, so Pete was grieving for that lost, but he gave Lupe's team the GO to use TROY. But Lupe's team never followed up after that. They didn't tell Pete what all Lupe was going to do with the track and he never even worked on the remix. So naturally, when the song came out, Pete was pissed because he didn't even have a say-so to what Lupe did with his track.

I see. He should've had a say in the matter. They could've fucked it up bad.
Is it on principle, or was there something specific he didn't like in it?

It was all about the principle of the situation.

I think Lupe's song is pretty good, but can't touch the original imo. I don't mind that he used to same sample, but he could at least have given a shout out or worked with Pete Rock on it to show tribute
