Wiz Khalifa and Curren$y recently came under fire for their collaboration “Huey Newton”. Renowned Black activist, minister and author Trutha Minista Paul Scott attacked the duo in a video (see below), saying that their use of Huey P. Newton’s names is disrespectful given the content of the song. Scott even went as far as to call them COINTELPRO agents.
“They’re not talking about being revolutionaries, they’re not talking about fighting the power for the people, they’re not talking about standing up for the people and free lunch programs like Huey P. Newton of the Black Panthers did,” he said. “It’s a blatant example of the disrespect that many of the Hip Hop artists have for those who paved the way for them…how dare you, Curren$y and Wiz Khalifa, to make a song that was disrespectful to the legacy of the Black Panthers…I really believe that some of you Hip-Hop artists are really COINTELPRO agents.”
In related news, Wiz Khalifa revealed to Hot 97’s Angie Martinez that he’s planning on releasing a star-studded remix to his smash single “Black and Yellow.” Although numerous emcees have already jumped on the track for their own unofficial remixes, Wiz has enlisted Snoop Dogg, Jeezy, Three 6 Mafia’s Juicy J, and T-Pain for the official “G-Mix.” He even hinted that a fourth person might grace the remix, but did not reveal the artist’s name.
“We tryna get somebody else on there,” he said. “I’m tryna like say his name and make him be on it.” (Rap-Up.com)
