Lamar Odom Says The Media Purposely Pits Rappers Against Each Other (VIDEO/POLL)


(AllHipHop News) For the past several weeks, mainstream media outlets stepped into the Hip Hop world to cover the Meek Mill versus Drake battle. While the competitive nature of the culture has been closely followed by rap enthusiasts since 1980’s classics like Kool Moe Dee vs. Busy Bee, it is rare for CNN, ABC, and the New York Times to highlight rap beef.

So why are these major news corporations paying attention to a Hip Hop feud. Former NBA star Lamar Odom offered his thoughts on the matter in an interview with TMZ Sports. Khloé Kardashian’s ex appears to have issues with the TMZ brand in particular.

Odom said:

Y’all have discredited me, beat me down, took my confidence, took everything away from me. You will not do it again.

I know what your company’s about. I know what they’re doing to brothers. I know what y’all are doing to the rappers. I know you want them beefing. I know you want them arguing. Y’all don’t do Leo [DiCaprio] like that. You don’t do Brad [Pitt] like that. Y’all don’t do them like that.
