Whites must not perform black music

‘X Factor’ novelty rapper Honey G has once again come under fire for cultural appropriation, this time from grime artist Kano and singer Lily Allen.

The two were being interviewed by Annie Mac for ‘The Exchange’, when the controversial act came up in the conversation.

Lily was the first to voice her opinion, telling the presenter: “As far as I can tell she is a white lady that dresses up in Ali G, Goldie Lookin Chain kind of attire,

“She has done really well on ‘X Factor’ and ITV is pouring money into her. I’m not black but I find it offensive.”

Kano then added that he found Honey G to be a “joke”, calling her prominence on ‘X Factor’ “so wrong on so many levels”.

Honey G has previously been forced to speak out in the past over the suggestion that her performances are culturally appropriative or racially insensitive, insisting the racism accusations were “ridiculous”.

She took things a step further shortly after this, when she suggested that she was having the “race card” used against her and even being “discriminated against” because she was white.

Speaking on the issue, Honey G said: “It makes me question whether they have a problem with someone rapping who is white.

“I’m not the only white person in the world who likes black music. There’s no evidence, proof or truth that I am a racist.”

Some black people need to stop working so hard at being black.

Modern music is largely western scales and African rythms, when you get right down to it.

Rap is crap. why would anyone want to sing it full stop. As for cultural appropriation why have African-American culturally appropriates white American lifestyles? Why don't they live in grass huts and wear traditional African dress? Why? Because they are hypocrites.

If we are supposed to be "color blind" why do we still have "black music". Should I be offended whenever a black person sings "white" music (i.e. not rap or hip hop)?

The problem is that Honey G can sing rap better that a lot of the blacks and like Eminem will always be hated for that. It is all about the benjamins.

With you there Anon 7:13.

The reason blacks call it "rap" is because they're too damn lazy to spell it properly beginning with "c".

How many up-and-coming young [c]rappers want to make a name for themselves these days because they're too lazy to get a real job?

Bobbing up and down, flailing your arms like an ape and rhyming about generally nothing useful all the while fingering unrecognisable gang signs seems far easier and more profitable than anything that [c]rapper tried desperately to avoid learning in school.

It's no wonder Detroit died. Everyone wanted to be a [c]rapper!

How many young black fools buy [c]rap music from their favourite [c]rapper that makes him rich enough to get a gold grille in his mouth, some stupid chain and pendant around his scrawny neck and a built-to-be-worn-sideways [c]rapper cap?

It needs a f-n propeller..

Back to the whining children on the Lily and Kano show. Are they both girls bitching about another girl?

If so, 'nuff said.
