Fat Joe Doesn’t Support Colin Kaepernick’s Protest
It seems like everyone has an opinion on the Colin Kaepernick national anthem saga. Now, Fat Joe speaks out: in a since-deleted tweet, the NYC legend says he's not cool with Kaepernick sitting down during the Star-Spangled Banner.
The tweet (disregard Joey Crack's typos) states, "Having thout about it, I ain't with protesting the #NationalAnthem. Soldiers died fighting 4 our freedom not cops. Why disrepsected them?"
Vince Staples also recently voiced his opinion about the national anthem. The Long Beach, Calif. artist called it “weak” and “trash.” The 23-year-old MC thinks the national anthem needs an upgrade, reiterating his suggestion of adding a DJ Mustard beat (he tweeted the same thing on Aug. 28). The Prima Donna rapper has a point – that remix would be pure fire.
Staples also mentions that, because of the song’s boring nature, he never really sung along to the national anthem in school or elsewhere. In all seriousness, the anthem might need an update. After all, the songwriter, Francis Scott Key, was a slave owner.
Fat Joe raised some eyebrows a few weeks back when he said nobody would care about Big Pun if it wasn't for him and Remy Ma. The Bronx rapper recently hit up Saudi Arabia with Remy Ma and French Montana for their "Cookin" video. Joey Crack spits, “Summer’s gone and we still doin’ Lebron numbers/Make Rihanna want the Don on her/Bag alert, Goyard on the duffel/So much paste up on the plate niggas swear I’m shavin’ truffle."
