Dream Hampton Says She's Done With Hip-Hop
 

 

Acclaimed hip-hop scribe dream hampton has taken to her personal Tumblr to air out her frustrations with the hip-hop culture. This comes after she was involved in the discussion over Nas allegedly using ghostwriters for his Untitled album.

Hampton explained that she's unmoved by the misogynist threats she's received since then. She also stated that she is done with hip-hop. You can read her post below.

I began my writing career calling out Dr Dre for his misogyny. My friendship with Jay Z began when I reviewed Reasonable Doubt and called Jay out for his hyper-capitalism . I was not 'calling out' Nas by telling the truth about Stic writing whole bars (ne songs) on Untitled. I was telling a truth to someone who thought his most radical ideas were his own. They were not. I'm unsurprised that these men have circled around their lie.

I'm unmoved by the misogynist threats I'm receiving in open forums (last night Just Blaze tweeted I should be "bled out"). But I am done. I may not be done talking about this (unsubscribe to my feed, I will block as I see fit), but I am done with hip hop and men who collude to silence women. And done with women who are happy they're not me. Don't worry. You could never be.
The situation she's referring to with Just Blaze allegedly took place last night, when he tweeted out the following:


He has since made it clear that the above tweet wasn't about hampton while also explaining how he feels about everything that's taken place:

I think it's kind of sad that this started with a casual conversation on Twitter with someone. She isn't promoting anything right now, and the last thing I remember her doing is Jay-Z's coffee table book.

With all of her credentials and talent, accusing one of the most prestigious lyricists ever of having a ghostwriter is a declaration of war to most people. Especially when there's no smoking gun to be found. So, that's kind of stupid on her part. I take that back, really stupid. All of the threats, I mean...I can't say she deserves it, but she should have saw it coming.

The sad thing is, I believe her. Just at this stage in Nas' career, with no evidence or anything...It's not really worth caring to be honest.

Lotta teenagers in the thread asking who Dream Hampton Is

She was the first female editor of the source...been in the game for 20+ years as one of the most important writers in our culture. She has award winning documentaries on Biggie,Muhammad Ali, and also grew up with Biggie. Shes reviewed and critiqued a large majority of the most important albums of our time and when Hip hop journalism meant something she was one of the top 2 or 3 individuals involved in it. She co-wrote Decoded with Jay Z after being one of the individuals who seriously criticized him early on in his career....should show you the respect Jay has for her. Shes also wrote for Ebony, Essence, Vibe, and so many other publications


In other words shes probably the single most important Hip hop journalist, and some would argue the only 1 that actually matters. Shes highly respected and for the most part someone that wouldnt lie about something like this....her credibility in the game is unrivaled.


If Big were alive he'd be smacking kufis off the n*ggas dissing her:

Boxden hates women though, especially successful black ones. Get ready for 3-5 pages of random ignorant bashing.

She actually was one of the few people who pulled Jay Zs card way back in 96...If anything shes a Jay Z critic whose opinion he actually values and has respect for.

I know something like that might be over your head though.
aight drumgang p thank you for your usual industry insight and schooling us "teenagers"

Stic.man went into great detail as to how the writing process went with Nas

He said it was Nas's ideas and Nas who put the lyrics together an dhe helped with hooks, beats and phrases

And this was before dream alleged anything


I'm sorry, but it just really doesnt sound like a ghostwriter. Now Dream hampton got nothign to fall back on. she dont have them reference tapes, the artists who worked with nas denied that they ghostwrote, shes admitted to battling depression. . .

smh. . .
