YK Osiris found himself in social media’s crosshairs after footage of the singer forcibly kissing reality show star Sukihana without her permission went viral. Plenty of people have weighed in on the situation, including New York City-bred rapper Fivio Foreign.
Following a significant amount of online backlash, YK Osiris apologized to Sukihana for what many observers called blatant sexual assault. Suki accepted the “Worth It” recording artist’s apology and signaled she was ready to move on.
Hollywood Unlocked spoke to Fivio Foreign at the For Khadija documentary premiere during the 2023 Tribeca Film Festival in New York. The Jason Lee-led outlet asked the B.I.B.L.E. album creator about the YK Osiris/Sukihana controversy.
“Just as a Black man in America and how our Black women are portrayed, you always got to be delicate,” Fivio Foreign said. “You got to be able to overread. Now, I don’t want to put another Black man down, but I feel for her and I got daughters. So you just got to read the room.”
Philadelphia-raised rapper Meek Mill caught heat for his own take on the negative reactions to the YK Osiris incident. Meek eventually ended his comments by telling Osiris to go back to church and stop following the heathens.
As far as the For Khadija film, Fivio Foreign showed up at the Tribeca Festival to back fellow NYC rap star, French Montana. He told HU, “It feels good to support another New Yorker, another man that I’ve seen from when I was a kid. I looked up to him so I’m definitely on fan timing.”
