Jacki O's "Griselda Blanco: La Madrina" Mixtape Causes Reaction From Drug Queenpin's Family
The rapper Rick Ross may have gotten away with with jacking a real gangsta and former drug Kingpin's name but that didn't seem to fly as smooth with Miami rapper Jacki-O who titled her latest mixtape Griselda Blanco.
For those who don't know she's the 80's drug lord who terrorized Miami and made over a billion dollars during her reign and was the focus of the movies Cociane Cowboys and Cociane Cowboys 2.
Speaking with Hip-Hop News 24/7, Jacki-O revealed.
"I got a call from her son in regards to me using her name for the mixtape but it was done in all respect though. He had a lot of respect about it but he just had a concern of the way I was portraying his mom. We spoke about it and he really wanted me to let everyone know that his mom was a loving mother despite the way the media has portrayed her and the way the streets thought of her but she was still a loving mother.
But what we know about her is she wasn't to be played with. She was that chick that if you didn't have her bricks or her money she coming for you so I named my mixtape Griselda Blanco and people that know about it love it."
See rappers, that's why it's good to be yourself because the real people you're portraying just might feel a certain way about it and literally reach out and touch you.
Jacki-O also discusses Soulja Boy and not wanting to work with Drake.
