Rap Legend, Luther “Uncle Luke” Campbell recently spoke his mind about Hollywood/Hip-hop hook-ups and marriages and he particularly singled one rapper out – Kanye West.
According to the 54-year-old label owner, rappers and athletes have perpetuated the idea of settling down with women for their social media popularity. In other words, the tricks, groupies, and ho’s of the Hip-hop world weren’t mixed up with the ‘wife-materials’ of the game.
The outspoken Miami native blames rapper and husband of socialite, Kim Kardashian, Kanye West for changing the rap game, telling WatchLOUD,
“It used to be a different, before Kanye West. Rappers wasn’t wifin’ all these hoes…Rappers would be secure with they woman…You look at Ice Cube. He’s always been with his wife. You look at Will Smith. He’s always been with her. Hip-hop was different. We didn’t get caught up in the Hollywood thing, where, OK rappers are now marrying Hollywood girls, leaving one, going to the next one, leaving this one. We didn’t do that. I mean, we were like real secure. We wasn’t marrying girls or wifin’ girls for the Internet to blow up.”
Shots were indeed fired here. But then again, many probably agree with his point.
