In regards to Timberlake, Vic explained why Black people were so aggravated with the Memphis singer’s tweets.
“Our problem here is that Justin Timberlake himself–you know–is definitely benefiting from using black culture for his sound, his dance moves, his dancers, and blowing up off of it. But if you roll down Justin Timberlake’s Twitter for the past two years, which I just did, you see nothing that supports black people when it’s more difficult, when there’s a struggle. With everything that’s going on, and everybody that’s been killed by police on camera in the last couple of years, there’s no #BlackLivesMatter; there’s no “praying for Baltimore;” there’s no “praying for Flint,” you know, because that’s a dangerous subject for him to touch. And we’re not feeling him being down when it’s beneficial to him, and turning a blind eye when it could be dangerous… Sit down until you show us you care. Don’t tell us sh*t unless you show us you care.”
Point taken, Vic.
The Save Money rapper went on Twitter to clarify his statement about Justin Timberlake and maintained he wasn’t “bashing” the “Suit & Tie” singer.
