Tyrese has had enough of DJ Vlad.

Tyrese came at DJ Vlad on Instagram, earlier this week, after the founder of VladTV requested an interview with him over DMs. The posts began with Tyrese replying to an interview Vlad did with Boosie Badazz. Tyrese accused Vlad of exploiting peoples' trauma and "leaching off of Black culture." In doing so, he shared screenshots of a DM conversation between himself and Vlad.

“Haven’t you used BLACK PEOPLE ENOUGH??? What’s the dudes name who talks off camera who owns VLAD TV?? Can y’all pull his tax returns????????,” Tyrese wrote on Instagram. “How much is he leaching off of BLACK CULTURE???? This dude is already have four people on his show and he randomly keeps bringing MY NAME UP… laughing about my divorce traumas laughing about my crying video and trying to milk my traumas and pains in the Clickbait for his goofy ass show….”

He continued: “Every time my name is bought up people are looking at him ‘Why you talking shit about my brother Ty’… he just keeps going… You corny AF dude…. 10k for what????? That ain’t even my daily Perdiem …”

Tyrese didn't stop with that post either. After it started to gain traction online, he shared several media outlets' articles covering it. He captioned the post: "I keep to myself I never bother nobody…. I’m from the hood…. I’m far from a bitch…. if you keep poking a bear you get your head knocked off……. No more free interviews for CULTURE VULTURES……. He’s worth 5 million and that 5 million came from MY CULTURE……. Since my divorce and traumas are funny…. Let’s keep laughing….. What more do you want from me?? I want EVERY RAPPER and singer who ever gets interviewed by this culture vulture to hit them pockets….. He offered me 10k I could of stuck him for 50k.
