Former Source owners Benzino
and Dave Mays
get their shots in following Elliott Wilson's recent XXL firing
. I guess they forgot they went out of business and XXL took over the throne during Elliott's XXL reign. Benzino is eloquent as always. Mays of course gets a promotional plug in their about the new Monsta
magazine they're launching soon featuring big exclusives on Made Men, Benzino
and other top artists.Benzino: "Karma is a muthafucka!!!...The little b*tch should have been let go years ago if you ask me... When I heard about this I thought it was beautiful...He (Elliot Wilson) doesn't represent Hip Hop or the culture anyway. XXL and all the editors over there are just a copy cat of The Source and now them, Source and Vibe are feeling the f*cking pinch....Now Yellow Nigga can go get a job sucking f*cking Jimmy Iovine since that's what he was doing anyway...G Unit is over and so is Elliot. If I see him in the streets I'ma put a foot in his ass.. I'ma do that for Hip Hop..."Dave Mays: "It's no coincidence that Elliot's firing comes just a few weeks before the impending launch of Monsta magazine, which will introduce the world to a new blueprint for the monthly magazine, a more advanced format that delivers exciting, relevant and informative content to the new generation of hip hop fans. Elliot's firing signals the end to an old-fashioned way of publishing magazines that is no longer viable, which explains why all of the current monthly mags—from XXL to The Source to Vibe—are struggling in continuing to try to operate in a way that doesn't work in the new age of media and of hip hop."
