Houston based rap legend Scarface is one of the few Down South artists that isn’t feeling the VH1 Hip Hop Honor: The Dirty South episode.
Other Southern artists like Uncle Luke and Tony Draper are also in protest of the event but for what reason?
Scarface, who has attended the last two years events, feels that the South is being disrespected and their involvment in the Hip Hop Honors is just to pacify the South. Here’s what he had to say:
“They’re like, ‘Let’s give these ni**as down there a pacifier so they can stop feeling left out. We’ll make Luke and all these ni**as down there look funny,” you know? “Let’s put a plate of fried chicken and some watermelon and let’s just do some ni**a-a** shit.” (laughs) Quote, end quote. “Some ni**a-a** sh*t.” Fried chicken and watermelon. “Sh*t, the faster we get this over with, the better.”
Face admits that is was a good thought but says he doesn’t want to be looked at as a rapper from the South but someone who has reached further throughout his career.
“I don’t wanna be classified as just “Dirty South.” I’m Hip Hop, man. I’m not going because I feel slighted. Even though it was a nice gesture, I feel like it’s just a pacifier.”
Even though Scarface makes a point I wonder who will either join him or get their shine on at the show.
