We told you about this guy a while back.  Well he’s also a critically-acclaimed author, as seen in his new book, Nast Lost. Read the first 26 pages here.  Download the book here.  Hit Crawford’s site here.

From the HYPEBEAST:

Long-term hip-hop blogger Byron Crawford unveils a new book titled ” NaS Lost: A Tribute to The Little Homey. Aside from critically dissecting NaS‘ illustrious career, the book also acts as a springboard for a number of disputed topics in hip-hop, comparing the likes of Chief Keef to Liz Phair, while citing a number relevant examples in the cesspool of web content. Head strong with his views, the witty offering touches on often muted topics like gay rappers, alongside referencing rap as an “old man’s sport.” NaS Lost: A Tribute to The Little Homey is now available from Barnes & Noble at $4 USD. Head over to ANIMAL to learn more about Crawford and the inspiration behind his latest work.

The Lou: Byron Crawford on Weezy’s Jay-Z “Diss”

Alright.  So the internetzeez has been ablaze with commentary since every since Tunchi popped shots at Hov.  STL-based blogger Byron Crawford even gave his thoughts on the matter.  Peep The Smoking Section for the rest of that boy.

Lil Wayne’s new Jay-Z dis record would be perhaps the worst dis record that I’m familiar with, except for the fact that he quite literally threatens to kidnap Beyonce, and so I guess that puts it a notch ahead of some other long since forgotten half-assed dis record. Maybe that time B.o.B. dissed Odd Future? (I’m not imagining that, right?)

This is just that kind of reckless, disrespectful behavior that’s been sorely missing from hip-hop ever since the days of Jay-Z vs. Nas, way back when I was in college. That beef was just getting interesting to me when Jay-Z decided to put the kibosh on it. Supposedly, Jay-Z’s mother heard the song where Jay-Z brags about having banged Nas’ baby mother in the backseat of the littlest homey’s own car and left a used condom on the baby’s car seat, and told him he needed to cut that shit out, before somebody ended up getting shot. Back in those days, people were still a little bit raw over what Suge Knight did to Biggie and 2Pac. It had only been about four years, at that point. At this point, that shit was longer ago than a motherfucker. There’s probably kids starting college this week who never even heard of Biggie and 2Pac. They certainly dress like it.
