Joyner Lucas Calls Out Future and Lil Wayne for Promoting Drug Use: ‘I Don’t Like That S—‘ [VIDEO]
Joyner Lucas has been talk on social media following the release of his controversial video “I’m Not Racist” and his "Gucci Gang" freestyle. The Worcester, Mass. native appeared on Hot 97’s Ebro in the Morning last week to discuss the video and among things.
Joyner shot down chatter that he was dissing Lil Pump with his remix to "Gucci Gang." In fact, he likes Pump's beat selections and stylized videos. However, the 29-year-old rapper called out Pump, as well as Lil Wayne and Future, for promoting drugs in their music. He contends that kids are very impressionable and when it comes to rap, they often mimic what rappers do.
"I've never been into artists promoting drugs," he says. "When you say those things, you telling the listener to go do the shit. At the end of the day, I don't promote any artist, I don't care who the fuck...Wayne...it don't matter who you are. Anytime I hear an artist promoting drugs...even Future with 'Percocet, molly, Percocet,' I don't like that shit."
In regards to the "I'm Not Racist" video, Lucas knew that it would spark criticisms because of the resolution at the end. But Lucas says that he wanted the video to end with some sort of resolve and not leave it open for interpretation.
"That was calculated as well. There would've been no resolution if I would've went as hard with the black cat as the white man," he explained. "I didn't want to do that because I wanted to create a resolution, so I let this white man speak. I let him do his thing, but if I would've just straight up bashed the shit out of him like people wanted me to, then I feel like I would've been adding to the problem."
