Fat Joe has been a Hip-Hop figure for well over a quarter century, so it’s fair to say he knows the culture and music’s aims inside and out. Eric Benet recently posted an Instagram image essentially saying that Hip-Hop music is essentially aiding white supremacy but Joey Crack says nothing could be further from the truth.
Eric posted a message on IG saying that rappers who promote killing black people, degrading black women, abusing drugs, materialization or living a low life are not artists … but actual agents of white supremacy — and are being used to destroy their own race.
Joe couldn’t disagree more, telling us rap music is just that … music. He says it’s often used for a variety of reasons, none of which he considers to be pushing white supremacists’ agenda.
Peep Fat Joe speaking with TMZ in the video below. And didn’t Jay-Z already tell us on 4:44 to not “go Eric Benet” already? Here’s another example, folks. To be fair, however, Benet is talking about a specific type of lyrical display but still, it’s kind of a reach.
