Between the violence and the ODs, rap has been posting quite the body count over the last several years.
All of that death led Jim Jones to opine that being a rapper is one of the most dangerous jobs in the world.
Waka Flocka pushed back on that notion.
“Please stop saying rap is dangerous,” Waka pleaded. “Y’all n*ggas is falling into the trap. ‘Cause if Hip Hop is dangerous, they gon stop booking shows around each state, stop making Hip Hop popular. The f*ck are y’all doing, bro?
Hip Hop ain’t dangerous, bro,” Waka continued This sh1t making more money outta any genre in the world. Hip Hop is beautiful, bro. To be a gangbanging rapper is f*cking dangerous. To be a drug-dealing rapper is dangerous, anything that’s negative is dangerous, idiots. F*ck is y’all talking about, bro? It ain’t dangerous, y’all folks really about to cut y’all f*cking hustle out. Fool-ass n*ggas, man.”
Jones held fast to his assertion that rap was one of the world’s most dangerous jobs even after being challenged by a marine. Would you like to see Capo and Waka debate this one?
