On Wednesday, Lupe Fiasco appeared on Twitter to offer fans a special treat – a one verse song…for $500!!! It was only a matter of time before another rapper chimed in with a comment. Kid Cudi was first to step up to the plate. He Tweeted: “What are you doing with the money your makin from this? Are u givin some of this money ur about to make to a charity orrrrr??” Lupe responded by writing, “The same thing I do with money from my non-personalized verses.” Hey, even if Tupac or Biggie were to come back, we’d be hard pressed to pay $500 for a verse…but that’s just us. Lupe, don’t let anyone knock your hustle.
