The Moment: In May 2010, Lupe was allegedly engaged in a backstage incident with 2DopeBoyz.com co-founder/Lupe fan Shake, who pledged to stop covering Lupe shortly afterwards.
The Reaction: 2DopeBoyz as well as several other blogs stopped covering Lupe's music and videos online.
Did It Help or Hurt His Career? HURT! One thing Lupe hasn't done particularly well throughout his career—thanks to his quest to stop music piracy—is establish a good working relationship with hip-hop blogs.
