Belly Calls Rappers “Dummies” for Disrespecting Tupac Shakur and The Notorious B.I.G.
On Monday (March 26), the Roc Nation rapper was a guest on the L.A. Leakers show on Power 106. When the topic of the recent spike in SoundCloud era rhymers not putting respect on Big and 'Pac's names, the "4 Days" rapper let off a passionate rant.
"Those guys fought for us when it was OK to be racist," he snapped. "When the news was coming out being racist toward us, 'cause we had our own form of music. Those guys were in the fucking front lines. So, for y'all little dummies that's getting your little checks and thinking you got clout right now, the only reason you got that is because people stepped up when the fire was on. Right now the fire ain't even on. They embrace you, bro. I come from days they didn't embrace us. We had to fight to be embraced."
He added, "Tupac had to damn near be crucified to be embraced. Big had to die."
He specifically touched on Lil Xan saying 'Pac had very little clout, then having to get a police escort when he was pressed by teens about what he said.
Elsewhere in the interview, the MC touched on working with Jay-Z and his forthcoming album.
