21 Times Rappers Experienced an Awkward Interview
While rappers wisely hire publicists and managers for a multitude of reasons, sometimes it’s simply to just have someone around that can either articulate the message of their music better or handle damage control like a boss after the heat of the moment.
In hip-hop, especially when artists have personalities as fierce as their bars, interviews can take a turn for worse and even become an awkward moment that no one could imagine. Whether an artist is passionate about a subject and things get a little heated or he or she is having an off day, the unpredictable or cringe-worthy moments in all their glory can make or break an interview. Often times, awkward moments remind us that the artists we admire, and whose careers we follow, are human after all.
Having a hit record doesn’t make an artist immune from the possible embarrassment that comes from misarticulating one’s thoughts. We could even go as far as to say it is both respectable and commendable for someone in the spotlight to own up to any of their media missteps. After all, it’s only really awkward if you make it awkward, right?
Regardless, the undeniable best part about those awkward moments? Given that it is the 21st century, 10 times out of 10, the cameras are rolling and we can revisit Birdman demanding respek on his name any time we please.
From Cam’Ron explaining his intense stance against snitching to Kanye West providing us with retweetable material for days, rappers truly have given us some incredible interview gems over the years. See 21 Times Rappers Experienced an Awkward Interview.
