After West Coast rapper V-Nasty stepped forward to defend her usage of the controversial term, “nigga,” newly signed white Bad Boy Records artist Machine Gun Kelly explains why he does not associate himself with it.
Admitting the “N-Word” debate is controversial in itself, MGK said his black daughter and crew is an obvious reason why he would never use the term.
“It’s a wrap on me using that word,” MGK said in an interview. “Not where I’m from. F*ck that. [laughs] F*ck that. I love my hood stripes. I wear my hood stripes proud. I don’t want them taken from me. Only N-word I’m using is ninja, ninjas, ninjas, ninjas and napalm, nasal spray, narcissist, nipples. Those are the N-words I’m using. Nipple, preferrably, is my favorite N-word. Good question. That’s a good question. That’s a controversial question, that’s a sketchy question…My daughter’s black, too. My whole team, with the exception of one of my managers, is black. It’s a subject you just kinda grow up and respect. I really wouldn’t touch it. I can joke all I want to. I wouldn’t touch that sh*t, though…[V-Nasty] may be good with that. I don’t know her. I know a lot of white people that do use it. I guess they grew up in that type of [environment]. I don’t know.

In late July, V-Nasty responded to critics slamming her for frequently dropping N-Bombs.
“On some real n*gga sh*t — how I really feel about these motherf*ckers talking about, ‘Why is V-Nasty saying the N-word?’ you motherf*ckers have never walked in my shoes, bruh … Is it a f*cking race? — Am I offending people or using it in a disrespectful type of way? Y’all mad at that? Y’all need to be mad at this album I’m about to drop on y’all a**. You f*ckin’ haters — don’t be mad at me just because I’m doing me.” (Visual Poetry)
Last June, fellow Cali rapper Mistah F.A.B. defended rappers Kreayshawn and V-Nasty.
“I just wanna say some sh*t to everybody that’s talking about why is Kreayshawn and V-Nasty, the White Girl Mob, saying the word n*gga and all that sh*t,” Mistah F.A.B. said in an interview. “First of all, you motherf*ckers need to wake up. It’s 2011. Nobody gives a f*ck about that sh*t no more. We grew up in the same communities, same neighborhoods. It’s not the same as how people once looked at it. You want to stand up for a cause like that? You’ll let somebody from your own race disrespect you all day, then soon as someone from outside your race — you want to turn into Malcolm X or Martin Luther King.” (We The West)
Kreayshawn previously addressed how she may let an N-Bomb slip in freestyles.
“If I’m freestyling and I said it, that’s just for that point in time. Any songs I’m writing I don’t use it,” Kreayshawn said about the “N-word”. “In Oakland, Asian people will call Mexicans that. A Mexican will call a black dude that. A white person will call an Asian that. Everyone calls each other that. I feel like that word is used in the low-income community more than anything. I can see if I was some rich crazy trick and I was just saying this because it’s hip-hop. I was raised around this. Me and my sisters were all raised around this. People call me that. But personally I’m not flaunting it around.” (Voice Online)
