Tyrese Calls Out Drug Dealers And Tells Them To Take A Stance Against Liquor Stores Operating Near Schools [Exclusive Video]


[ooyala code=”1vbm43Mzqp1H-rIVwjbThFpOZRJVsg8n”]

Not too many artists these days take a stance for what’s right but are quick to glorify violence and bullShhh*t.

Well Tyrese ain’t one.

As previously reported, the actor/singer/ Rapper (Black Ty Stick to your day jobs homey), caught some heat in Delaware when he spoke out against liquor stores being so close to urban schools.

Standing by his principles, Tyrese spoke to Hip-Hop Wired exclusively about the incident and why most artists lack BALLS when it comes to standing up for the right causes.

” I just think that’s the reason why a lot of artists don’t speak up on obvious things because radio is very powerful and our careers could literally get killed without support from radio.

This dude kicked me out the radio station and then he banned my music a couple of days later and that’s his position. [He said]  ‘I’m not gone put your music on until you come back up here and apologize’ and I’m never going to apologize.  My position will never change and I  just think me being a father for one, with a 4-yar-old beautiful daughter , I just think these are things that people should address.


If ya’ll can run cats off “ya”ll” block that’s selling and they ain’t supposed to be there, ya’ll need to have a conversation about those liquor stores  that’s right by your elementary schools, by your kids…because the personalities  that come with these liquor stores should not be that close to any kids.  Period.”

Peep The Interview as he also discuses his new album Open Invitation dropping November 1st as well as the new video with Ludacris.

    Okay. Nice Try Tyrese. But for real?! How you telling drug dealers to take a stand against liquor stores being by the schools when the drug dealers be by the schools too. You need to be telling them “hey, get your drug dealing a**es away from the school and by the way these liquor stores need to go too!” Matter fact , since most of us can’t control these things, how about be good to your kids and teach them righteously so that when they leaving school they don’t stop by the drug dealers or the liquor store.

    • SPILL IT!!!


      Okay!! You said that!

  • CriticXtreme

    This man seems to be on a mission. I hope it’s real and researching a part for a men or reality show.

  • Wtf!!

    @chrissy can u read ma? Ds headline of the article is misleading. He didnt say the drug dealers should take a stsnd but if people run dealers away, run da liquor stores away az well.

  • Sundoulos

    Tyrese & NYOil need to do a song together addressing these very issues.

  • SPILL IT!!!

    The real problem is that no one wants their paycheck to stop. Since they know they can’t control a person’s freewill, they say Fawk it and become crack media(or whatever you sale) dealers. No one forces you to buy poisonous and deadly crack… you CHOOSE to buy/support crack. Even though people may judge their past actions and music, I commend mainstream artists like Tyrese and David Banner for finally taking a stand for the African-American community. More need to join him. Just imagine a world where Gucci Mane became all conscious and aware on Zaytoven tracks… lmao!

    @SPILL IT!!! There are those who glorify selling drugs all day and it’s sad when I see children acting a fool, treating each other and even their elders terribly trying to live out some thug fantasy.
