The popular White rapper Yelawolf is coming under fire as rapper, Royce Da 5’9, is calling him a culture vulture. Royce says Yelawolf is using rap culture for financial gain, but more than that he’s also a Donald Trump supporter who talks trash about black people.
Royce da 5’9″ has linked up with Westside Gunn on his new single “Overcomer.” And in the new track, he’s exposing Yelawolf.
Yelawolf this is your first and your last pass
I ain’t gon’ put it on blast, your punk ass know what this about
You think it’s ’bout being loud or tryna be hostile.
Later, the verse, made reference to Trump supporting musician Kid Rock, who has worked with Yelawolf on a number of tracks.
‘Till you get found face down on the ground outside of Kid Rock house
Though you a vulture pundit, I hope you get sober from this
Men lie, women lie, so do numbers
Royce Da 5’9 spoke out about this track on a recent episode of The Joe Budden Podcast. Joe asked Royce why he decided to call out his former collaborator Yelawolf on the new project.
Royce told Joe, “He gonna know why. He gonna know why, for sure.”
He continued, “I mean, It’s a situation going on, especially in hip-hop, OK: We have all kinds of different people, but we have a type of person in particular. We have white people, white people who come into the business and they use the culture—which we got a very open culture, it’s here for everybody to thrive.”
Royce added, “We got some white people that come in and use that, and then go and do very evil things behind closed doors—very evil, racist things behind closed doors. They make comments and stuff like that. And I just got to a point in life where if I see it or if hear about it or if I’m involved in it in any type of way … I have to start holding these people accountable. Because if you don’t, the cycle just continues.”
