Rapper Jeezy Discusses Homophobia in Hip-Hop with Larry King, #BlackLivesMatter, POTUS Obama & Police Brutality

Grammy nominated rapper and entrepreneur Jeezy sits down with Larry King on the Emmy-nominated series, “Larry King Now”for an in-depth and wide-ranging interview about his new album ‘Trap or Die 3’, homophobia in hip-hop, and the recent spate of Black men killed by police. Plus, he opens up about his own run-ins with the law, Obama’s presidency and the controversy surrounding Black Lives Matter.
Jeezy opens up about the recent spate of excessive use of force by police, saying he’s most concerned about his teenaged son. But, he also acknowledges that while police brutality has most likely gone on for long, the popularity of social media has given it much more awareness. He tells Larry, “I think it’s been going on, I really think that social media has made it – or given it – more awareness lately because social media’s so fast, you see these things.”

[ Premiere] - Toronto's VNCHY (@LordVNCHY) goes against the wave in BLACK DIABLO

Toronto act VNCHY goes against the wave in "Black Diablo"
In a sea of trap rap and conscious verses against the system, Toronto rapper VNCHY is stepping up the ante with the track, “Black Diablo.” The artist keeps true to his dark and cinematic allure while spitting illustrious lyrics against the popular wave. In a gritty yet inviting voice, VNCHY makes it clear his presence will shake his city’s growing rap scene and beyond.
“Black Diablo is my mission statement” VNCHY said. “An acceptance of weak s**t has deeply embedded itself in the zeitgeist. A considerable amount of damage has been dealt not only to the world of reasoning but [the] execution as well.  Fighting the power has become a cliché, which has opened the door for an abundance of mediocrity. But I’ve dedicated my entire life to fighting the power. Photo credit: Lukas Levert
