WorldStarHipHop has garnered a reputation for putting up some of the most controversial and questionable content on the web, and is certainly no stranger to criticism. On February 27, the Universal Zulu Nation joined the ranks of the site’s detractors.
In an open letter written by Universal Zulu Nation Minister of Information, Quadeer “M.C. Spice” Shakur, the organization slams WSHH and its CEO, Lee O’Denat, for presenting what they deem to be a completely false representation of hip hop culture.
“This is a new year, and the Universal Zulu Nation has begun a movement against anyone who is against us,” Shakur revealed. “Mr. O’Denat, either you are for Hip-Hop Culture, or you are not. There is no in-between, and no matter how many people have hyped you to believe that WorldStarHipHop is anything close to what this Culture is, they told you a lie.”
The letter also contains a threat to bring to light a particular video posted on WSHH that the organization believes may be illegal.
“This is not the first time you have posted content that has been of this nature, and from the looks of it, this is probably Child Pornography,” said Shakur. “Therefore, I will forward the link and the video to the proper authorities to be sure that these young people are in fact of age and in full consent of being on your site in such a demeaning fashion. I’m unsure if this will bring about any charges, as there is a huge rumor on the streets that you are in fact working for the feds and are using your site as a cover up.”
