Everyone celebrated Hip-Hop turning 50 years old last Friday (August 11th), which ended with a massive concert at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, however, one legend felt there wasn’t enough appreciation for Florida rappers. 

2 Live Crew founder Luke Campbell, known as Uncle Luke shared his frustrations on Instagram. “Hip-hop fans from Florida, don’t be upset they don’t recognize your favorite Floridian artists as part of hip-hop’s 50th-year celebrations,” he wrote. 

“This industry has never considered us as hip-hop from the time I started hip-hop in the South. You can only imagine the names they called us. Country booty music trash, music. I can go on and on [about] the disrespect towards Florida hip-hop,” he continued. “Still to this day, we fight for our respect, and you have stood behind us every step of the way. We will continue fighting. There will be a day this year where we come together and celebrate Florida hip-hop artists from the top of the state to the bottom. We love you. Thank You for your support.”
