Is Tank Defending Mumble Rappers?


(AllHipHop Rumors) People are always divided on the state of today’s Hip Hop! Some are supportive of the new waves and others believe it’s straight trash!

One person who is supportive of the new school of Hip Hop artists is R&B singer, Tank.

Artists such as Lil Yachty and Lil Uzi Vert have faced much backlash for putting out garbage music that lacks substance and is nothing more than mumble rap at times.

It seems like Tank was fed up with the harsh criticism. Tank took to Instagram to express how fed up he was with black men speaking down on young black artists.

“I’m utterly disgusted!! I’ve never seen so many grown black men speak out against young black kids fighting to earn a living in this already difficult world! Yes they’re different but so was MJ and Prince! Y’all still celebrate those men highly with no thought to their differences. The crazy part is that these kids actually represent positivity. They give a voice to those who feel like outcasts and may even have a hard time fitting in. These kids make being different ok and give hope to those who may feel like their life has no value. Maybe you’d feel better if these kids ran up on your car high and tooled up with extended clips and told you to “get down, lay down, or be found!” That would make more sense to you huh? You definitely don’t want them to live their dreams and have fun entertaining the world! You definitely don’t want them to feed their families and get they mama out the hood. You n-ggas kill me wanting your music to stay in the 80s and the 90s but gotta have the 2018 Benz! Everything changes! Everything evolves! It may not be for you but it is for the millions that stream it and show up to be entertained by it! Let these kids live!!.. #RnBMoney #RnBSoldiers #TheGeneral #savagecomingsoon #musicislife,” said Tank.

A fan commented under Tank’s Instagram post saying,

“I guess we’re not allowed to say when someone is ruining hip hop, why does it have to turn into hatred? There are many talented artists that never get a chance to show their potential but then guys like these get the opportunity and sell trash. That’s all I’m saying. Not hate in my heart just truth.”

Tank replied by saying,

“ what you call trash a billion other people enjoy. Remember that.

Tank also went on to reply to another fan explaining to them that every artists is not going to make music with “substance”, and they don’t have to. Tank feels that every artist is allowed to paint their own picture. There are no rules.

Does Tank have a point? What are your thoughts?
