Riff Raff Banned From Hot 97’s Summer Jam XX
Apparently trashing Riff Raff for 20 minutes wasn’t enough for the crew at Hot97. In a recent interview Hot 97′s program director Ebroski asked Riff Raff if he’s making a mockery of hip-hop and the culture surrounding it, questioning if it’s all just a costume and comparing him to a modern Vanilla Ice. The conversation got heated but Jody Highroller remained respectful as always. The following day Ebro continued to go on about “White Boy Rap” on a show he somehow manages to call “The Realness”, spewing a bunch more trash talk he couldn’t manage to say to his face. Early this morning, the controversial rapper hit Twitter to announce his disappointment in being BANNED from this year’s Summer Jam XX festivities. What a surprise! Hey they need some sort of beef to sell tickets every year right? Either way, this is on some really messed up reverse racism concept. Whoever made this decision at Hot 97 is taking their own personal music preference (or worse) and putting it ahead of what the fans paying the price of admission want. Whether you like Riff or not he was voted 2nd overall in fan balloting. Why bring up Yelawolf, Eminem or any other white rapper in the argument. Why does race have to be brought into the equation?
