Born & raised in Milwaukee, The Artist Formerly Known as Fresh G has worked at 860 WNOV, WLUM HOT 102, and WKKV in The Mil as a Mixer/DJ/On-Air Personality (1985-1996) before being christened Mike Love and moving to Chicago to work nights on WGCI (1996-2007). Now, back in the Mil-town for a second stint at V100.7, he returns with a moniker given to him in Chicago and effectively dismissing part of his legacy as Fresh G, one of the greatest Mix DJs the city ever produced. Will he succeed at The Crib as Mike Love and forge a new identity in a new era, or will the outside forces from the past force him to reembrace Fresh G? Stay tuned...
Kanye West chose to wear a skirt throughout most of the “Watch The Throne” tour last year, so it is very odd to hear that he recently requested Getty Images to remove all of his photos from the Sandy Benefit Concert in December which featured him wearing a skirt on stage. What makes things even more interesting is that this request comes on the heels of a recent record by Brand Nubian’s Lord Jamar, who disses Kanye for feminizing Hip Hop. In a track titled, “Lift Up Your Skirt,” he raps:
Instagram, Black man lookin’ half a f**/ With a blazer and vest, I’m just amazed at the mess/Pioneer of this q*eer sh*t is Kanye West/He introduced the skinny jeans to the rap scene/Then he wore a f*cking skirt on the video screen/Then he wore it again at a memorial/I can’t pretend that this sh*t ain’t deplorable/I bet this n**ga thinkin’ he lookin’ adorable/Your music’s good but your ego is horrible…
Lord Jamar also explained his lyrics further to SOHH:
First of all, it’s not just jabs at Kanye West. It’s anybody promoting the feminization — of the Black man in hip-hop culture. Anybody that I see out there, rocking dresses and all of that type of sh*t, I might shoot a jab at. But Kanye is one of the ones right now that’s representing that movement. He’s one of the first ones that you see in a skirt. Now you got other people following suit and rocking full-out dresses or they’re trying to rock kilts. We’re not Irish. We’re not Europeans. Rocking kilts and all that is just another excuse to introduce that skirt style. You understand what I’m saying? And I’m not with it. This has nothing to do with sexuality, who they choose to be with and all that, I’m not even talking about that. I’m talking specifically about, what is hip-hop? And that’s not hip-hop. Rocking dresses with mean faces, that’s not hip-hop.”
According to Gawker, Getty has confirmed that they were asked to remove the images from the wire:
Getty confirmed that they were asked to scrub their site of the several shots of Kanye from the 12-12-12 show they hosted. They wouldn’t say why.
