Odd Future frontmen Tyler, the Creator and Earl Sweatshirt have shared their thoughts on the Solange Knowles elevator fight seen across the world and explained why the R&B diva is nothing less than awesome. #TeamSolange
In Tyler's perspective, Solange is unlike most high-profile celebrities and very down to earth.
"You know why Solange is awesome? I met her before and she's just herself and she's cool and she likes regular sh*t. By the way, Solange, your song 'Crush' has been one of my favorite songs for years," Tyler said. "[The fight?] It's entertaining, but whatever." ... "She had something to get off chest," Sweatshirt added. (Huff Post LIVE)
This week, actress Jennifer Lopez said the world will not know the truth unless Solange or Jay Z speak out.
"I don't know. You can't speculate what's going on but what I do know about being in the public eye is that you never know the real story and you never will unless somebody decides to share it. But if you saw a fight on the street right here, wouldn't you want to know what happened? ... We're just nosy. People are just nosy. And you just gotta know that when you're in this business and just roll with the punches." (Hot 97)
G-Unit head 50 Cent posted up a portion of the fight footage to his Instagram account and also narrated it earlier this week.
"Now what was that slick sh*t you said? Nah, nah, f*ck that Marcy sh*t. N*gga, this Houston! Get the f*ck off of me! You gonna get your a** kicked, n*gga. Don't you never in your life try to do your f*ck sh*t. I will f*ck you up! I will f*ck you up! I'm cool, I just had to check a n*gga."
"Family Matters, jay you did the right thing keep cool.lol #smsaudio #animalambitionFollowing"
"Ok I ain't gonna forget this sh!t. #smsaudio #animalambition" (50 Cent's Instagram)
Although not as direct as Fif, Jay's one-time business partner Dame Dash posted up a photo of Solange and noted her fighter-like image.
"Forgot about this one @ava_dash @atrak and solange ...I am actually impressed with her independent spirit... She seems like a fighter #festivallife" (Dame Dash's Instagram)
