Ridiculed rapper Yung Berg has defended his public perception days after being victimized by having one of his chains robbed from him by a London rapper.
From Berg's perspective, losing materialistic items is irrelevant to his career.
"Nothing has been taken from me that has any real value to me. Unless they take my vocal chords, my ability to make a beat, or hum a melody than I feel like I haven't lost anything. Anything that's materialistic I can get back...I don't even want to talk about that because this shall pass, too. My music is what is going to stick around, and I don't want anything to take the focus off that. As far as anything else, I'm just not going to talk about it because people are going to believe whatever they want. I don't get into the WWF side of things. I'm trying to be like Smokey Robinson with a catalog of hit records. I can't be worried about what goes on Internet sites. That doesn't generate any money for me." (VIBE)
Earlier this week, robber/rapper Rowdy-T taunted Berg over taking his chain.
"I heard your little interview on the station today, which was ridiculous. You said that this chain was going to be given to a 10-year-old for charity case, that's the only reason you're pissed off about it. Come on now, come on," Rowdy-T calmly stated. "You got stuck. You're going to give this to a 10-year-old boy for what, so he can get robbed and stuck up everyday like you? I know you been on the phone, I know you told the FBI. They contact my people and start harassing people. That's not how gangsters do business, tell the truth man. Stop being on the b**ch a** level and come see me." (All Hip Hop)
Last year, Berg made headlines after being assaulted on-camera.
Poor Yung Berg can't win for losing. In the video underneath the hood, a heated discussion and small fade is caught, but when Yung Turd attempts to flee into a store to get away...a white boy catches fade with the back of his head. (Bossip)
He later responded to the incident and said he was sucker punched.
"Ah man, I done seen a lot of sh*t in my life, right, but that footage that I just saw earlier was some of the most rigid, swine of f*cking wh*re footage I ever seen in my f*cking life," Berg said in a self-made video. "How dare you fraud a** n*ggas out there. I mean, I knew it was coming, personally because it was only two and a half years ago, it was only a disagreement between my manager, or my old manager, and all that other sh*t. And then, the coward sh*t is, the homie, I was watching the footage to get a glimpse of myself to see what went on and like, punching me in the back of the head while I'm talking to somebody else? Like that must be some of the fraudest sh*t I've ever seen in my life...What you need to know is -- that sh*t will never happen again.One, because I'm moving correctly. Two, because I'm moving correctly motherf*ckers. So y'all go ahead and watch old footage of me..." (Crooked Rap)
