Megan The Stallion’s Team Called Out By The Breakfast Club Over Treatment Of Black Media
While discussing Megan Thee Stallion’s recent GQ “Rapper of the Year” accomplishment during a recent episode of The Breakfast Club, the hosts called out chart-topping rapper and her team for the ways that Black media is treated vs. white media.
This topic isn’t a new one. Plenty of celebrities have been called out for bypassing or limiting Black media outlets to give their time to larger, predominantly white media outlets, and Megan Thee Stallion and her team are now in the hot seat for this same reason.
DJ Envy was first to address it, stating,
“You know what? I yeah I think it’s crazy because when she does white publications she’s able to talk and and talk about everything that she wants to talk about but when she goes to the black press and black publications there’s a list that the label sends out that you know don’t ask her about this don’t talk about this don’t talk about that. But we’re the ones that support her and hold her down and play her music and talk about all the good things that she does and go through all that stuff…it’s just weird when they do that.”
“Salute to Meg, wish you the best on her debut album. Good good news, but you know I just don’t like when artists go to white publications and spill their guts but when they come to the black media outlets they want us, they have a long laundry list of things not to talk about.”
“Now we also don’t know sometimes if it’s the artist sending that list out or if it’s the label and representation saying that. A lot of times artists don’t even know they’re like what did they tell you i couldn’t talk about ?
