“Money brings the worse out of people,” says Benzino. “When I grew up it wasn’t like this. People had genuine love for each other. We live in age of social media now, and there’s no genuine love cause you really don’t know who you’re taking to half the time.”

“With my mom passing and with things that transpired, it’s definitely made me a little bit colder,” added Benzino. “But then there could be something that happens next week that makes my heart happy again.”

“Boston’s been hard on me. Not the people but the press, the police,” states Benzino. “People don’t understand really that Boston kind of depresses Hip Hop.”

“I would give props where props are do. The [Source] magazine is garbage. At first it was sad. Now it’s just funny,” said Zino. “People said what they want about Benzino and Dave about The Source, but some of the greatest magazines and issues came from us. Then when we left it’s down the toilet.”

“You ever went to the Hunger Games? That’s what Love & Hip Hop is,” suggests Zino. “It’s real. What they do is manipulate your reality… It’s your story. They just put you in positions to play your story out. It’s definitely not fake.”

    This nigga ruined the Source, and now he’s saying it’s garbage?

    • It is garbage now, he steered it toward garbage with the Em beef, but it was at it’s best when he ran it, and it is worse now.

      • Ryan Cole

        It’s been wack for a good 10 years, but Benzino is the one that made it that way. When he took over after running out all the credible writers and staff, that shit went downhill quick. He fucked up that magazine’s credibility with all that self-promotion for his career.

      • I can’t dispute that, but…he hasn’t been running it since the Em beef, therefore the blame is on the dudes that have been running it the last 10 yrs.

  • Reblogged this on HUEY mix wit RILEY.

  • He had a few good points in there didn’t make it all the way thru tho

  • MrNoName2K

    Well you cant get too comfortable with anybody this day and age…smh, niggas aint givin a damn and the sad thing about it is as old as Benzino is, he should have known that

      Yea but me you and all the true hiphop heads who are for the culture; we realize today’s new breed of talent and cultural representatives aren’t quite what we want. They way things work isn’t ideal for hiphop, u wish for better but we only get what the new generation gives and that ain’t much.
