Over the weekend, I read the story about a rapper that was calling it quits. The story didn’t make national headlines, but it’s worth reading about. Why? Well, follow me on the journey through this and I’ll explain. It highlights a bigger picture.
First of all, the rapper is a nobody. Literally, the rapper’s name is NoName. I’d like to think that I’m not so old I’m completely out of touch with pop culture, but I never had a clue this rapper existed. I mean we’ve all heard of Kanye, Cardi B or some other pop stars. I had to head over and do a web search for this one.
The story is that the rapper sent out some tweets over the holiday and weekend stating that she was quitting music. Not because of super success. It wasn’t because of the stress of the job. No, she is literally quitting rap music because too many white people show up at her shows.
That’s right, an African American rapper is upset because white people are supporting her too much. Buried in the tweets, the “artist” said that her heart was not in the music anymore. That is more like the true story of why she is quitting, but she immediately had to go to a race issue.
We hear this constantly from the black community how horrible white people are. I mean we are racist, bigoted and multiple other adjectives you’d like to use to describe the scum of the earth. Yet, white people were the very ones that were paying for tickets to her shows. The rapper simply wants attention. It’s like a lyrical version of Colin Kaepernick.
I’m sure it has nothing to do with the fact that she has only ever had one Billboard charted song, which was only a guest appearance by her. It also probably has nothing to do with the fact that in a major market she could only sell seats to around 2,000 fans. For comparison, nearly 17,000 showed up for a Kanye West performance in Houston recently. A Christian service experience for the record.
The artist can say that this is a race issue all she wants, but sometimes you just have to admit you could do better. I mean, I’ve read some of Kanye’s lyrics from the past and I at least could understand them. Let me share some of the amazing lyrical talent of NoName from her song Blaxploitation.
Do you hear me man?
Do you understand? I am Black
I’m a n****, do you understand me?
I was born black, I live black, and I’ma die probably because I’m black, because some cracker that knows I’m black better than you, nigga, is probably gonna put a bullet in the back of my head
This rapper can go stand in the unemployment line with Colin Kaepernick. I’ve said it a million times, I’m against any discrimination or prejudice. These types of statements and actions are nothing more than childish behavior. Just like Kaepernick, this rapper would like you to think she’s a victim.
So while the left celebrates this and points out that it’s a race issue, I want to bring you the truth. This has nothing to do with race. It has everything to do with poor job performance. If I was a horrible QB or a horrible rapper, I would suspect that no one would want me to play or perform either.
