Lupe didn't mince words when it came to MTV, firing shots at the network in a 2010 Twitter rant. "What are we supposed to be learning from you?" he wrote. "What is your point? Do you have a point beyond corporate sponsored distraction? You're a materialistic shell of your former self that can only identify with celebrity pageantry and instant gratification. Corporate garbage pushing plastic lifestyles and wasteful, destructive behavior into the brains of the youth of the world. So when your relevance thins in2 a whisper & the stock price collapses and you have 2 come 2 grips with the mess you made, I'll be here 4 ya. We'll be here. With hands full of baby powder 2 smack some sense back into your body & a warm shoulder to cry on. We want the REAL MTV back!"
