They’re expletives: I sometimes wish all competing magazines were as transparent in their disgust for one-another as the the hip-hop-zines The Source and XXL. The NY Post’s Monica McCollum explains the “war of words” the magazines are waging.
“I think I started that [the verbal attacks],” (XXL’s editor Elliott) Wilson admitted. “I dissed them in editorials. I said they were king and I wanted to beat them. I haven’t done that in about a year, but now they are dissing me. The beef did get petty. That is when I had to say this isn’t worth that. I don’t need to hurt them. They are hurting themselves.”
Come on, Time and Newsweek. Quit being wimps. Let’s hear some trash talk.
