In one of the more bizarre conflicts in recent hip-hop memory, legendary producer Pete Rock has taken offense to Chicago MC Lupe Fiasco’s new song “Around My Way” which has a beat almost identical to Pete’s hip-hop hallmark “T.R.O.Y.” Lupe claimed Pete gave his blessing, Pete says he was contacted but was never followed-up with, and even the supposed squashing of the beef following a phone call last week has only seen tension further escalate as both sides allege the other deviated from what was discussed.

In the interest of hip-hop, we asked some of our favorite H2C2 MCs to weigh in on this development, and we encourage our readers to respond back with some rhymes of their own.
