Hip-hop fans share mixed reactions to the video of Young Thug
Peeps took to the comments section and shared mixed reactions to the clip of the superstar.
"I love my people but we gotta stop acting like we ain’t gone get caught up behind some stuff even if it happened a while back, karma comes back every time. Better stop acting like what goes around don’t come around."
"Getting up every morning early just to go to trial is exhausting."
"He helped commit murder, yeah."
"He’s the supposed leader of the gang, a raco charge works this. If you ask your underlings to commit murder the leader will take the fall more than the murderer Bc he’s the leader, and he too can be charged without even killing anyone."
"It’s Rico, he called the shots, it’s the same as him actually doing it."
"At the end of the day everyone wants to save themselves. Loyalty is great until you’re facing serious time."
50 Cent claims Eminem had a bigger impact on hip-hop than Jay-Z
In other entertainment news, Legit.ng reported that 50 Cent has made it clear that Eminem is his favourite rapper. The In Da Club hitmaker apparently claimed that Eminem is bigger than Jay-Z in terms of making an impact in the rap scene.
This is not the first time the Den of Thieves actor has praised Em for his contributions to the hip-hop industry. Maybe it is because Slim Shady opened doors for him in the music business when he signed him.
Taking to Twitter, Daily Loud - a verified page that shares hip-hip news, shared a collage of Jay-Z, Eminem and 50 Cent. The entertainment handle captioned its post:
