West Coast newcomer Kreayshawn‘s White Girl Mob member V-Nasty refuses to let the controversy behind her use of the “N-word” rest by defending the incendiary term coming out of her mouth.
In a video, V-Nasty told her critics to loosen up and focus on the music.
“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 month, fellow Cali rapper Mistah F.A.B. defended 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)
Over the weekend, West Coast rapper Game attacked Kreayshawn for using the N-word on Twitter via his “Uncle Otis” diss track.
Bay Area newcomer Kreayshawn landed in Game’s cross-hairs, too. The “Gucci Gucci” rapper raised his ire for her tweet where she paraphrased DMX and used the N-word. Despite not uttering it conversation and later explaining that she doesn’t say the word herself, Game said her use was flagrant enough for him. “You can’t be playing with that word, some people will take it serious,” he explained. “Especially coming from someone that’s [not black]. There’s a lot of tragic history behind it.” (XXL Mag)
She previously came forward and said the controversial word does not exist in her rhymes.
“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)
