The Buzz On... Maino

Babyfaced Brooklyn MC Maino -- he appeared on Lil' Kim's "Lighters Up" and recently opened for T-Pain -- doesn't just tolerate the hate. He welcomes it in his nanny-nanny-boo-boo, bleeps-blips-bumps-and-beats tribute to those petulant sorts with less than favorable impressions of him. Like "Brooklyn Salute," Maino's breakthrough single, "Hi Hater" -- off his upcoming album, If Tomorrow Comes -- casually lauds hip-hop breeding ground Bed-Stuy and other points south and east while enumerating some of the pastimes that keep Maino busiest: stacking paper, hustlin', and Henny.

Check out the video below, learn the dance (it's the new Soulja Boy!), and -- no hate or anything -- but see where Maino dug up that sample.
