So in addition to those guys, you brought up Yelawolf man. And this is something that I’m asking just out of my own curiosity. Did it ever get confirmed what Royce was tripping on him for?
I merely called him out for Fefe Dobson.
Yeah, his wife.
Because Fefe Dobson is like, a middle class girl that came from Canada who is kind of sheltered during her life and it’s not a diss to her, but–I don’t how to put this–she was obsessed. She seemed obsessed with white culture as far as rock music and, you know, the figures that exist in it. You know, and that’s not a bad thing. You know, but I think that someone like YelaWolf would take advantage of that, you know what I mean. And, you know, I remember him putting out merge, you know, for fuck man, at least 10 years straight with nothing but rebel flags associated with the merge. And I’m just like, you know, I know the history behind it, you know, and I’m not a fan of it. I’m never gonna represent that. People can say, this is our heritage. But your heritage is fucking racist you know. Like, there’s no fucking way you could turn this flag that represents evil into love. There’s no fucking way you know what I’m saying. So my thing is I get it’s a part of Southern culture, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t abolish it. That doesn’t mean if you’re truly not, you know, this hateful person that you shouldn’t get rid of it.
No, I agree completely. He finally adhered to that too though in the long run, didn’t he? Because he got so much pressure to address this.
Here’s the thing right. So Royce calls him out about, you know, him obviously saying the N word to one of the–I think it was his cousin or like an understudy of him that he sent out to work with him. And the dude basically came back and told Royce that you know, YelaWolf said he’s gonna say that in front of them, and everybody in his crew’s gonna say in front of him, and he ain’t gonna do nothing about it.
So basically, you know, to me, that was like, again back to Fefe Dobson you know. Like to hear that it’s like, I’ve met Royce. I’ve been around Royce you know. I remember getting snuck into the Pay Deuce concert by Crooked I. And Royce and Crooked I were calling Joe Budden a fucking bitch the whole time. And then Royce never really seemed like a person that was gonna sugarcoat shit with you. He’s gonna be straightforward with you, and he’s gonna you know, he’s gonna bring up disrespect, if it’s, you know, happening.
So basically, you know, I really felt like I didn’t feel like he was lying about that, or fabricating that. Because Royce the 5’9 doesn’t just call people out for nothing. He doesn’t call people out. You understand? Like, there had to be something behind it. But back to Fefe Dobson it’s like, well, if you are doing this to Royce’s understudy, and saying N word with a hard ‘R’ around him, what are you saying to her when you go home at night? What are you saying to her? What are you saying to her when all other people leave? You know, and it’s just you guys in the house at that point.
I’ve seen and witnessed being around people that used to be friends of mine, like in interracial relationships, and then them using that word to their partner and thinking it’s okay. It’s never okay. You know what I mean? That’s the stance that I hold. So I kind of really brought that up mainly on her behalf. Like because, I mean, do we know what’s going on? You know, and she’s been up the spotlight for a very long time. So I don’t think we’re gonna hear any press release or her coming forward about anything.
