An outcry is being heard in the D.C. Facebook Community over Wale’s comments during a recent interview on MTV’s Rap Fix Live. Shout out to Crank Brothers for bringing this to my attention!
This is what people are saying:
“SMH!!! Thank you Wale for diggin a deeper hole for GoGo. With the platform that he has and represents, he is in a position where whatever he said is a stampage. Music is never violent. Yes…the meeting place for violence is at the gogo but saying gogo is violent on an international TV station (MtV) is reckless and disrespectful. That’s like dialing 911 and telling the police you rob banks. Now they got u in a scope not trustin your every move.
Crazy how he forgot his “first hit” was a gogo song and sec was too. had to share this fam..” Crank Brothers
”That was straight self hate, or selfishness. It seems he was so busy trying to be hip and have some knd of swag, that he wasnt thinking intellegentlly enough to know the damage that speach caused a whole genre of music. He didn’t even answer the question? That was like someone asking you “how’s the family” and you start talking about your crazy cousin. The host asked him to promote GoGo music, and he blew it!! Sometimes we give the wrong people the spotlight and the mic.” Ignatius Mason
“Wow!! That was very disappointing! My Unc must be turning in his grave!!!” Fase Miller
“If it wasn’t for Go-Go he would be a bigger NOBODY!!! #BammaAss#” MsQue Asifudidntno
“He didn’t have to put the negative out there. How can go-go move forward if National artists r saying it is violent? If I wasn’t familiar with the genre I wouldn’t invite bands anywhere smh” Jason MrHollywood West
“Yeah he blew that! He was given an opportunity to educate folks on gogo but he didn’t rep well at all.” N’Diya Pinkney
“How disrespectful smh and Wale wow” Desmond Decker Aka Young D
”Wale Lost My Respect!!! He Must Of Forgot Where He Came From!!” LaSha Burks
