Dropping lines about people relevant in the news is nothing new in hip-hop.
However, when do rappers take things too far? Well, Tyga might have crossed that line.
On Friday, the Young Money rapper dropped a short video for his track “Designer.” The track is the usual boasting kind of song we’re used to from Tyga. On the track he raps about expensive clothes, money and women.
However, in the midst of all that fly talk, Tyga mentions Trayvon Martin, the 17-year-old unarmed black teen who was shot and killed by a watchman in his father’s neighborhood.
In the song Tyga raps:
”I got that gold thang. Make these b*tches scream/ Make these p*ssies pop/ Killin’ n*ggas for no reason — Trayvon.”
Unsurprisingly, Tyga has been receiving a lot of criticism for his line. The rapper has yet to reply.
What do you think of the line? Was it wrong for Tyga to rap it?
