4 months ago

West Coast rapper Nipsey Hussle has some words for Eminem following an eye-opening BET Hip Hop Awards cypher. The Los Angeles native issued a statement following the hype surrounding Slim Shady’s Donald Trump-fueled bars.

In Nipsey’s perspective, he’s proud of artists including himself, “F*ck Donald Trump” collaborator YG and Em for speaking out against the head of state.

In a statement to Billboard, Hussle applauded Eminem for his venomous freestyle, which highlighted Trump’s lax approach regarding gun control in Nevada, his delayed response to aid Puerto Rico and more. “The message is what’s important,” says Hussle. “I respect Eminem for being vocal, I respect YG for being vocal, [and] I respect myself for being vocal.” (Billboard)

This week, YG showed off some frustrations for not enough people acknowledging their “FDT” single.

Since the freestyle aired, hip-hop artists J. Cole and 50 Cent came through to applaud Em.


A few hours prior, NFL free agent Colin Kaepernick reacted to getting referenced by Em in his life-changing BET Hip Hop Awards cypher.
