The other afternoon I was linking a friend to the tagless MP3 of Paranoid by Ty$ & Joe Mo$e$ after she asked for a download link for it on Facebook (girls LOVE Paranoid!) only to notice that Blogspot had deleted my post about the song from june without so much as a standard copyright infringement notice. Puh-leez tell me this isn't because Atlantic Records are now pushing the corny remix with B.o.B that's being sold on iTunes/Amazon etc as the de facto official version?
If Atlantic are just trying to remove the original no-DJ Ketchup MP3 from the 'net so they can give the song a proper shot at retail level then that's great news. But this is the same Atlantic who had various Gucci Mane mixtapes/songs/blog posts wiped from cyberspace in 2009, so it wouldn't surprise me if they'd try to rewrite Joe Mo$e$ out of history and it'd certainly explain the delay with the the Paranoid video if they've had to reshoot it to feature that sexless pipsqueak B.o.B prancing about lip-syncing in front of the camera instead.
I can forgive Ty$ for the My Cabana beat debacle since that was clearly out of his hands, but if he's going to let Atlantic ruin a perfect Rap & Bullshit song on account of a fucking B.o.B remix verse and then shaft the only rapper who should ever be allowed to rhyme on his shit in the process then I'm gonna wish a bad case of the clap on that ol' Mark Gonzalez-meets-Booker T lookin' ass muthafucker as well as B.o.B and everybody who's currently employed by Atlantic Records.
