Yelawolf was none too happy about his song Gangster of Love with CyHi The Prynce leaking. He took to twitter to vent, and called into Hip Hop Nation’s Invasion Radio, and said he is no longer using twitter.







Dj Green Lantern wins big this year courtesy of MTV News.com


Dj Green Lantern wins big this year courtesy of MTV News.com…in their year-end Mixtape Monday report, MTV News.com has named Dj Green Lantern Mixtape Dj of the Year (along side Dj Drama) ..The “Evil Genius” was also named Satellite Radio Dj of the Year (he shares the award with Dj Whoo Kid) for his Sirius/Xm Hip-Hop Nation “Invasion Radio” show –which airs Mondays 10pm EST…

“Green Lantern as the radio/ satellite DJ of the Year for me wasn’t a big question. If you turn to Channel 40 on Mondays, you’ll hear something original you wish you had a MP3 of. Besides helping Nas have a much improved stage show this year, putting together two of the top ten mixtapes this year (Ni**er Mixtape and Bar Exam 2) and keeping the beats fresh, the Evil one’s satellite radio show really solidified itself as the home of the spitters.

Much like Mixtape Monday tries to do (isn’t it dope how both our shows are on Monday?), Lantern used his time on the airwaves to give the fans what they really want, rappers rapping. You’ll hear rappers putting their hearts in the art with off-the-dome (sometimes) material just for the streets. Green and Team Invasion’s “Ondapsot Freestyle,” sessions/ciphers took me back to a classic time in hip-hop where you could turn the dial and hear Red Alert, Stretch and Bobbito, or Sway, King and DJ Revolution opening their mics up to MCs and having the artists prove why they are masters of the craft.

What I love about Green’s show is it practices no discretion. I mean that in the best way. It feels frees, spontaneous. Where else can you hear legends such as Nas, Q-Tip and Busta Rhymes rifle off rhymes as well have newer guys such as a Charles Hamilton and Corey Gunz or the nice underdogs of the game; I.E. Joe Budden, Styles P, Beanie Sigel, or Crooked I?

So Green congrats and salute. You remain one of the consistently dope people in the game. My requests for 2009 are a Green Lantern/ Kanye West mixtape, a Champ is Here Part 2, Bar Exam 3 (part 2 was real classic material), Green Lantern/ Wu-Tang (just for the love of the game) and dare I ask for… Dare I ask for another Team Invasion/Shady/Aftermath/ G-Unit Mixtape? I still rock those original Invasion joints.
