Cyber-Thuggery Reaches New Heights....Dipset Hacks Tru Life's Myspace page
Hip hop has reached a new low....but damn, its kinda of an entertaining low point....which is better than boring, i guess. Ive been getting alot of emails from Tru Life's camp down in the LES, hyping up his new mixtape, called Tru York, featuring a freestyle and intro from El Presidente himself, Jay-Z...and if you listen to the tape, its got some skits going straight for the jugular like a fake phonecall from Max B to Jim Jones and a fake gameshow. But the most notable part of the mixtape is Jay-Z's tirade about Jim Jones (which again, I dont see why he continues to include himself in this beef)....and of course the cover of the mixtape, with Jim Jones photoshopped onto Borat's body wearing a lime-green slingshot suit....yuck.
But just when Tru Life was probably basking in his mixtape glow.....Jim Jones one upped him by sending in his Dipset web-hoodlums. They somehow hacked into Tru's myspace page, changing all the music to dipset songs, changing Tru's top 8 to show dipset artists, and worst of all, replacing Tru's mixtape cover with a new one called Jim York...and guess who's wearing the Borat bikini in this version? Unbelievable...Oh and one last thing....the hackers even sent out an email from Tru Life's profile to thousands of myspacers (see below).
Is this the future of hip hop beef? Have we gone from "The Bridge" vs "The Bridge is Over" and "The Takeover" vs "Ether"....to...photoshop-attacks and "ding-dong-ditch" tactics? (groan).....So what do you think is next? How do you get back at someone? Hack back?
And more importantly, for the rest of us....how can these artists protect themselves against hackery? The kids are evil geniuses out here.....(big up to Black Ninja for hitting me up with the scoop)
THIS IS THE LETTER THAT THE DIPSET CYBERTHUGS SENT OUT TO ALL OF TRU'S FRIENDS THRU HIS FRIENDLIST.....
I want to apologize for disrespecting The Whole Dipset especially Jim "capo" Jones. I'm just a tad upset with my situation over at rocafella, Jay Z spends all his money on beyonce, and doesn't leave much for any of his broke Rocafella artist Like me Young Gunners, Memphis Bleek and Peedi Crakk; especially for his dust smoking habits.. I'm driving around the lower eastside in my 96 Windstar Caravan with my broke friends not really doing much. I don't know when my album gonna drop, I'm still living off the Jewelry I stole from Mobb deep and I'm down to my last dollars. I really want to say thank you to Geno, end of the day I know he is my muscle, and the only reason niggas aint swerve on me yet.
Let The People know! I'm a liar and a hasbeen.
