Da SLU Cru vs. Bill Beene

It wouldn't be hip hop without the beef, which is too bad, really, because the arguments always look silly from the outside looking in. This time, MCs Big Will and Luqman of Da SLU Cru are squaring off against Bill Beene, the entertainment editor of The St. Louis American. The war of words was made strangely public by Bill in the pages of the American. To quote Chuck D., "All I want is peace and love on this planet / Ain't that how God planned it?"

In other feud news, the Chingy vs. Nelly thread on this site is up to 194 comments. Yeesh!

I give up. Are they called Da SLU Cru because they went to SLU? I don't remember SLU being that hard core of a place.

Whoa. It's more than a year later and I just saw this blog. But I'll explain anyway, since I'm sure you guys probably still don't get it. The beef between the SLU Cru and me is long over, but it's like this: I spoke my piece in defense of the article I wrote that wasn't to the SLU Cru's liking. That's it. But that started the beef because they tried to tell me what not to write. Yeah, write. And yeah, right. Give me a break. Anyway, you can't blame Hip-hop on that. George Bush isn't a hip-hopper and neither was Hitler, the KKK or slaver traders. Oh, and neither are D. Trump and R. O'Donnell (or whatever her name is). Right now I'm responding to your blog, but that doesn't mean we have beef. Does it? And it sure as hell doesn't have hip-hop to blame. By the way, I ran the "strange article" because I was covering -- of all events -- a hip-hop unity party, so the so-called beef became an interesting, ironic angle since it went down at the unity party. Peace.
