West Coast rapper Mistah F.A.B. has spoke out in support of newcomer Kreayshawn and her sister V-Nasty, and downplayed their frequent use of the word “n*gga” in their speech.
F.A.B. believes times have changed and the term is not as offensive as it once was.
“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)
A couple weeks ago, Kreayshawn said her sister, V-Nasty, frequently drops “N-Bombs”.
“I never said it in any of my music,” Kreayshawn promised in an interview. “Ever. [You heard it in my music video?] It might have been my sister, V-Nasty ’cause she says it all the time. That’s just because she grew up all different. Like, she goes in and out of jail for armed robbery all the time. Like, her mom calls her that. So that’s her stuff. Personally, I don’t say it in my music. It’s not my place but you know, that’s her.” (All Hip Hop)
Earlier this month, the rapper said “n*gga” is a common expression used by multiple races around her Oakland hometown.
“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)
In May, Kreayshawn caused some tensions to flare after dropping the N-Bomb on Twitter.
“People are actin so funny omg lol… I got 200k views… not 200k dollars… WTF YOU WANT FROM A N*GGA?! *DMX VOICE*,” she tweeted May 20th. (Kreayshawn’s Twitter)
