No Roger, No Rerun, No Rent

Byron Crawford's farcical (and I mean that in the most flattering way possible) petition to ban Kanye West from the Grammys is already picking up steam.

Expect to see it on allhiphop by monday, 20 other random sites in news.google on Wednesday, and the NY Post next Friday.

For the record, Rhymefest is credited as a co-writer and nominated along with Kanye, and he speaks here on whether he wrote the entire song:

...you know what, at the end of the day, if I co-wrote it, hell yeah, Iím gonna say I wrote it. Itís like, if youíre a co-owner of Ford, and the average person asks you if you own Ford, youíre gonna say Ďyesí to Ďem, nahmsayin? I still get my share and my credit, and at the end of the day, even if I say I wrote it, itís still Kanyeís song, you know what Iím sayin? But Iím grateful because wherever Kanye goes, whenever he talks about the song and the creation of it, heís give me credit for helpiní write it.

But why let the facts get in the way of a good scandal? If this blows up enough for Kanye to make a statement on it, Bol should get a special pulitzer for media satire.
