With a little over a month left, 2011 has proven to be a year of change for the overall hip hop scene. Faces like Fat Joe have dominated hip hop for years, but in 2011, they found themselves replaced by newcomers, such as French Montana and Tyler, the Creator. Another act to emerge in 2011 has been the White Girl Mob, which prominently features Kreayshawn and V-Nasty.
Already, the girls have ran into problems with major hip hop artists. Because of their excessive use of the N-word, the girls have been dissed by Game. During the summer of 2011, Kreayshawn released a freestyle, which dissed Rick Ross. Initially playing the disses off, Rick Ross eventually confronted Kreayshawn during the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards.
Several rappers have been offended with the White Girl Mob and their use of the N-word, while other rappers have accepted it. It should come as no surprise when Fat Joe said he was not offended by their N-word use. During the height of his career, many complained of his over-use of the word, but he still continued using the word, saying he grew up with it.
Fat Joe went on to use Rev. Al Sharpton in his defense of Kreayshawn and V-Nasty using the N-word, saying the prominent activist has also used the word in the past. The first time he met Sharpton, Fat Joe said the reverend referred to him as the ‘realest nigga in New York.’ This is referenced in Fat Joe’s 2007 song, “The Crackhouse,” when he says “even Reverend Al be like ‘Joe’s that nigga.'”
