Alicia Keys is getting some burn for those Black Panther inspired words that she recently said. As I reported her she spoke to Blender Magazine, (which she covers HERE) about her philosophies about Gangsta Rap. Unfortunately for her, the Hip Hop community, including buck toothed 50, is livid about her comments.
50 says: "I don’t like Alicia Keys no more. If she thinks what they consider gangsta music is [made] to bring black people down then I think my sh*t falls into that category. I don’t like people who don’t like me. I don’t like her then because that’s what provides the life for me.
I think if you ask Ice Cube the same shit, he’ll tell you, “F*ck Alicia Keys” for even saying that. Because the success he’s had as an actor and a businessman, there was no opportunity for that sh*t without N.W.A. But I don’t think that [her] classical sh*t is cool. I don’t give a f*ck if you can classically play the piano."
