In a recent interview with the most savage radio show, The Breakfast Club, she told Charlemagne Tha God, “Half my family’s from Jamaica, are you kidding me?” Soon after Charlamagne followed up and asked if she’s ever smoked, Harris replied, “I did inhale.”
This is a good look for the former California attorney general, isn’t it? Marijuana legalization is definitely a pressing issue in the upcoming 2020 presidential election and knowing that she supports the cannabis movement is hella fire.
What’s weird is that Harris did not always seem like she was a supporter of legalizing bud. In fact, back in 2014, she laughed off reporters during an interview with KCRA News.
In response to whether she supported regulating cannabis and dismissing the pro-legalization stance of the Republican challenger for her position as attorney general she said, “He’s entitled to his opinion.”
Maybe the tides have changed for Harris. Who knows? What we do know is that she openly admitted to inhaling mother nature’s godly herb and made it seem that it’s a must, due to her “Jamaican heritage.”
Or maybe it was the fact that 62 percent of Americans support marijuana legalization and most of the Democratic presidential candidates for election 2020 have backed the movement wholeheartedly.
Not to mention the long history of mass incarceration tied to cannabis-related offenses. Between 2001 and 2010, 88 percent of the 8.2 million drug arrests were marijuana-related offenses. Beyond that, “Blacks are 3.73 times more likely than whites to be arrested for marijuana,” according to the ACLU.”
As we get closer to the primaries and eventually election day time will only tell if Kamala Harris is really bout it, bout it.
Whether planned or not, the combination of his obvious change in features, shrieking proclamations, and non-stop quotables put Soulja Boy at the center of conversations.
“You n—as is trash, bruh, making this trash ass fucking music, saturating the fucking game. I sat back 2018, I sat back 2017 and watched you lame ass rappers fuck the rap game up. I been in this shit 10 years. I started rapping when I was 17,” he said.
Fittingly, Power 105.1’s Breakfast Club had to bring Young Draco up to, of course, talk his shit and hopefully bring some of that attention their way. And boy, did he.
this Soulja boy breakfast club interview is great. he’s hilarious and a national treasure.
The interview hasn’t been out less than ten hours and it’s already surpassed a million views. Among addressing his case for the comeback artists of 2018, Soulja calls out Kanye, sons Drake, and makes claim as a pioneer in rap.
As outlandish and really wild as it all sounds, there are some truths in there. It’s just, you never know with Soulja.
Either way, the discussions it’s prompted are constructive for the genre and really makes you think just how influential the “Crank That” artist may have been. So we went through the interview and laid out all of his claims.
He’s NOT on cocaine
After footage of Soulja yelling out “Tyga” more times than anyone would like went viral, people couldn’t help but see noticeable feature change and immediately assumed drugs.
Although he hilariously addressed it on his IG Live, explaining that his appearance was due to a near-death experience on Jan 7, Charlamagne made sure to follow up, asking to see under Soulja’s nose for powder residue when the interview started.
He later revealed that the rumor of him being on drugs started when stripper Kat Stacks started the rumor, back when they used to hang out for some reason.
He had the biggest comeback in 2018
Soulja is sticking to his script of having the biggest comeback of 2018.
While noting Tyga’s song, “Taste” went number one, he contends that being relevant, despite the beef and controversy he went through the year prior, makes him the more formidable candidate.
“I’m saying, 2016, 2017, I got into all that trouble with Migos and Chris Brown and Shia LaBeouf and this person, that person. And I was presented in a way that people counted me out,” he said.
Hard to argue with his logic there, although I’m not sure how much I agree.
He signed $400 million record deal
In discussing all that’s going on with Soulja’s life, his rumored $400 million deal came up, and, to my pleasure, he stands by it.
Although the $400 million has since been clarified as an endorsement deal that’s with an incentivized cap, he tells the Breakfast Club that it’s real.
“Facts, n**** goggle it. I got the contract in the car right now,” Soulja contests when Charlamange called it one of his “famous lies”. Charlamagne then read a statement from the company that said they were shares that actually are actually valued at $2.5 million.
Soulja’s response: “Millions is millions, my baby.”
That he started this internet rapper wave
You’d have to search high and low to find an artist that came up off the internet before Soulja Boy. We’re talking over a decade ago, Soulja was selling ringtones, on MySpace, infiltrating the internet in ways labels are now instructing their artists to do.
The viral dances that seem to be a must-have to go number one all stemmed from Soulja, so his claims aren’t too off-base.
“I been doing this YouTube, I was the first artist on social media. I was the first artists on Youtube. The record labels set their blueprint behind me,” he said.
When you compare how the industry treated him when he first came out to the success he was able to have, you’d understand the chip on his shoulder.
“They said I killed hip-hop and now they doing exactly like I did and I’m being shunned upon. I’m the reason y’all doing this. I’m the reason why all these artists have social media. Y’all should thank me. Every artist in the game, all y’all record labels, y’all owe me five percent, bro. … Y’all gon’ respect it.”
That he taught Drake EVERYTHING he knows
Probably the boldest of claims he made during the interview was that he taught Drake everything he knows.
Upon first hearing that, it may sound ridiculous, but you’d have to remember that Soulja came into the game before Drake, and even more, was on top of the world at that point. Seeing how Drake likes to attach himself to what’s hottest and trending now, it’s not far-fetched to believe he did so then, too.
Using the same voice to call out Tyga, Soulja Boy stands up, and, in disbelief, shouts out “Drake?!” inquisitively, almost as if he was offended.
Soulja Boy then went on to say how the most memorable line in one of Drake’s first singles, “Miss Me” was a carbon copy his song, “What’s Hannenin'”
“Drake? Drake? The n***a that got bodied by Pusha-T?” Soulja said when the Breakfast Club team started comparing Meek Mill and Soulja Boy comebacks.
“The n***a that’s hiding his kid from the world but the world wanna hide from his kid? Y’all n***as better stop playin’ with me . . . Stop playing me like I ain’t teach Drake everything he knows. He copied my whole fucking flow! Word for word, bar for bar.”
After the interview Soulja posted the two songs on his Instagram as proof.
As we’ve seen in the past, anything can go down during an interview Breakfast Club.
The New York radio program that’s become a household name due to it’s antics and knack for tacking touchy topics, proved just that yesterday during Thursday’s interview with Viceland’s Desus and Mero.
Out the gate, in what was apparently a brewing vendetta against the comedic duo, DJ Envy began with fiery disrespect, introducing them as “dickhead” and “pussy.”
His issue, as we would later find out, stems from jokes Desus and Mero made of he and his wife over a month ago when they appeared on the daytime talkshow “The Real,” where his wife Gia, went into detail about Envy cheating on her in the past.
“You owe my wife an apology,” he starts.
“My wife has been with me since I was 15, before I had a dollar. She was making more money than me. So to insinuate that she was there for a check or that she’s good with Envy’s check is a disrespect to me,” he continued.
Envy has a point: if he does not want his wife mentioned then he does not want his wife mentioned.
So, they apologized. But even after the apology and gaining clarity Envy still walked out of the interview, bringing into question asking for the apology in the first place.
Being that Desus and Mero have their own platform, they didn’t miss out the opportunity to capitalize on the moment, doubling down on their initial roasting, and coming at Envy’s life on their program last night.
“You felt that strongly and your wife wanted an apology, why didn’t you call us the same night?” Desus asked. “We made a joke about you being a on a show with your wife discussing why — I don’t gotta say it, y’all know why y’all was there,” Desus said. “And you getting mad at me?”
Whether Envy was legit upset or this was a publicity stunt, he clearly got the short end of the stick during this exchange.
Not only does he just look silly, he walked off his own show and gave his enemies more supporters. That couldn’t have been his plan.
a lot of men in media seem to be threatened by desus and mero but we can talk about that later.
