Little Brother’s upcoming album The Minstrel Show was supposed to stir up some kind of controversy but who knew it would be to this degree. While the album has been gushed over critically, it hasn’t garnered a classic rating that many expected. In fact, over at The Source, the editor resigned after being forced to change the rating of the album.

The album was reportedly supposed to receive a 4 ½ mic rating out of 5 in the October issue of the magazine when Benzino and Dave Mays had other ideas. The duo disagreed with the albums rating and in turn wanted it to be brought down to a 4 out of 5. They then brought it to the attention of Editor-In-Chief Joshua "Fahiym" Ratcliffe who felt very strongly about he and his staff’s decision to give the album a 4 ½ rating. Upon the challenging of Fahiym’s integrity, the editor decided to leave the magazine in lieu of Mays and Benzino’s adamant decision.

As of press time, the album is still said to receive a 4. This marks the second editor in less than a year that has parted ways with the magazine. Kim Osario left under different terms less than 6 months ago after filing a sexual harassment suit against the magazines co-owners.

the SOURCE always shits on underground albums..........I remember DEL - BOTH SIDES OF THE BRAIN got 2.5 mics...........BLACKALICIOUS - NIA got 3 mics........haha

they shit on UNDERGROUND cats, and always give mediocre mainstream albums 4 mics because they want to keep the major labels happy......they buy tons of advertising in the magazines........the SOURCE is bullshit, anyone who buys that magazine is like 13 years old NELLY fan.

I think the SOURCE gave the FAT JOE - ALL OR NOTHING 4 mics......haha......every other magazine has shit all over that album.......it sucks........

I think The Listening was the best album of 2003.

Of course they're not in Tribes league, they only been around for a few years and made 1 album. Give it time and i think they will be.

And props 2 the editor who left, he done the right thing. U dont see too much of that these days.

Co signs w/36 Chambers on the album of the year in '03. The Listening is fire to me. Easily one of my favorite LPs. It's some laid back,no gimmick pure hip hop shit. I know it ain't 4 everyone. I like all types of hip hop. If it's good,i give it it's props. If it's wack,it's wack and I'll tell u that. I love that shit when I just get off work ,chillin'. Can't wait 4 the new LP
