Sean Paul Speaks about Street Cred in his interview with Nikki Z

sean-paul-pepperpot-2008-1

Get the Flash Player to see the wordTube Media Player.

Each artist in the industry has a story to tell. The triumphs and the challenges. This holds true for the mega international recording artist Sean Paul. Late last week, Sean Paul’s Twitter followers would have seen his tirade directed at a particularly persistent follower, who told him “don’t fabricate street cred … be real” (among other things), apparently based on statements made by Sean Paul during a recent television interview on the Mo’Nique Show. Sean Paul was clearly not amused, and in an exclusive follow-up interview with Nikki-Z, he spoke further about people constantly styling him as UPT (uptown) – born with a gold spoon in his mouth.

Props: Nikki Z
