ED LOVER YO! MTV … YOU DON’T OWN ME ANYMORE!
Ed Lover is giving MTV a major “C’MON SON” … telling us there will never be a “Yo! MTV Raps” again because he refuses to go back to being “owned” by a network.
Ed, of course, co-hosted the groundbreaking show with Dr. Dre in the ’80s and ’90s — but when we asked about a reunion last night in NYC … he unloaded on his former employer and made the gig sound like it was slavery.
Ed told us, “MTV owned us. Now we own” — and added he’s creating his own checks now through a venture called Hip Hop Now.
But watch — even though he taped a 30-minute ‘Yo!’ retrospective in Dec. 2012 — Lover sounds angry as hell about how it ended with MTV almost 20 years ago.
Just don’t retire the dance, Ed.
