V-Nasty spoke to XXL about her upcoming project with Gucci Mane, her expectations for it and, of course, her thoughts on using the N-word. Check out some excerpts below.
On Expectations for "BAYTL":
"Hopefully they take it the right way. I’ve seen a lot of negative feedback, but that’s [from] people that have a problem with me already. Hopefully this changes peoples’ minds, because they can actually see how I feel and where I actually come from. At first, I was writing my own stuff, and then Gucci Mane had me freestyling hella shit. It’s a good project, I feel like; hopefully everybody else feels the same.
On Twitter and stuff. They say stuff like, Oh, Gucci Mane, you’re hella dumb for making this song with V-Nasty. Just that type of shit. But, oh, well. Whatever."
On Using The N-Word On This Project:
"I’m working on not using the N-word in my music and stuff. But on an everyday thing when I’m with my friends, I don’t feel like I should have to change anything. I just feel like I don’t wanna disrespect anybody, because I don’t know what other people have been through. It’s not like that in my city. I just feel like I’m gonna stop using it in my music, in a public eye. Other than that, I’m gonna continue to be myself."
On Talking to Gucci About Using The N-Word:
"Gucci Mane had no problem with it. Gucci Mane told me, shit, I’m more street than these muthafuckas that are talkin’ about me saying the N-word. Everybody tells me that. Nobody ever actually came to my face and said, “You can’t say the N-word.” You know what I’m sayin’? I feel like a lot of people were feeling disrespected. I don’t want people to feel like I’m racist, or whatever the fact is. I’d rather just have a positive way, and show them that that word does not make me.
If they don’t like me sayin’ it, then they shouldn’t like anybody sayin’ it, though, is what I’m sayin’. It shouldn’t matter what color you are."
On a sidenote, in a recent track released from V-Nasty & Gucci called "Food Plug," V-Nasty actually takes a shot at David Banner, saying, "Damn how a white bitch more hood than David Banner?"
