Hot 97′s Peter Rosenberg of “The Morning Show” is known for sparking controversy and recently called Hip Hop legend Chuck D a troll. The New York DJ called himself checkin the Public Enemy icon for saying Hot 97’s Summer Jam was creating a “Sloppy Fiasco” of Hip Hop culture on twitter.
During a segment on his show called, “The Realness”, Rosenberg started out saying how much he respects Chuck for his contributions to Hip Hop, but then accused him of “trolling” and said Chuck D is not the leader of the culture. The morning show host said, “Chuck D, no one elected you president of Hip Hop. We love you. You’re a forefather of this game, you contributed, but we did not elect you president of this culture. No one owns Hip Hop.” You gotta hear this for yourself.
Rosenberg went on to ask Chuck D what is he doing for Hip Hop among other things. He got a swift answer too. The iconic rapper tweeted,
Some cats said I was 'trolling'? Hmm. if so. Trolling vs Controlling is warranted. Tell them they better get better with WORDS to come at me.
