Vince Staples chimes in following Kendrick Lamar's show fiasco.
Over the weekend, Kendrick Lamar invited a white fan on stage to perform the song "M.A.A.D City" with him. The result: she uttered the n-word and was given a warning by K. Dot before he kicked her off the stage for her lack of rhythmic delivery. However, the incident sparked several opinions on social media and think-pieces. Jerry Helligar wrote an article for Variety about why rappers should consider retiring the n-word. Helligar explains why he thinks rapper's should "rethink how they deliver their message" and how dropping the word from their song's wouldn't take anything away from the song's message. Vince Staples saw the article and clearly didn't feel the same way as Helligar.
Vince Staples took to Twitter earlier today to address Variety's article. The rapper quoted their tweet and wrote, "Lol you n*ggas wild for this." He continued to write in a following tweet, "I hate the “who can say the n word” conversation."
While he didn't elaborate further on why he hates the conversation, although it's fairly obvious, he did acknowledge the fact that his initial tweet did spark responses to said conversation.
"The most interesting part of this tweet is people responding with their stance on the conversation." He said.
Before that, the rapper made sure to spread send some love to Trick Daddy for loving the kids.
