Noname

Noname has sparked a bit of racial tension between music lovers after announcing she is quitting music because she is tired of preforming for white people.

The female rap artist tweeted (now deleted), “me consistently creating content that is primarily consumed by a white audience who would rather shit on me than challenge their liberalism because somehow liking Lizzos music absolves them of racist tendencies.”

She went on to explain that if you don’t like her music you should just say so because fellow artists such as DaBaby and Megan the Stallion don’t have an issue getting black people to come to their shows.

She continued her venting session by saying that most artists feel the same way she does about performing for a majority white crowd, but because of their “allegiance” securing the bag, they won’t speak up about it.

“Y’all really pushing the idea that black people can’t come to my shows because of black death and financial restraint ??? As if Dababy, Megan and Smino shows ain’t black as hell? Say you don’t like my shit and move around lol”

“whats funny is most black artist are just as uncomfortable performing for majority white crowds but would never publicly say that out of fear and allegiance to 💰 Which isnt a bad thing necessarily cause niggas gotta eat but yall wouldnt be up and arms if I quit workn @ McDonalds”

“That’s real. Unfortunately I’m not going to keep performing for predominantly white crowds. I have 2 shows on the books then after that I’m chilling on making music. If y’all don’t wanna leave the crib I feel it. I don’t want to dance on a stage for white people.”

“I refuse to keep making music and putting it online for free for people who won’t support me”

Music lovers were sent into a frenzy on Twitter as they tweeted back and forth about how ”music is supposed to be for everyone not racial.”

Whereas most of black twitter pointed out the fact that without the influence of black artists, genres like rock n roll, hip hop, country, and many others wouldn’t even exist.

I may be biased because I am a POC (person of color), but the progression of music has been heavily influenced by those blessed with melanin in my opinion!
