*Rappers and athletes have made popular the wifin’ of hos and tricks in recent years, and rap legend Luther “Uncle Luke” Campbell is not here for it.
The outspoken Miami native blames Kanye West for changing the rap game, telling WatchLOUD, “It used to be a difference, before Kanye West, rappers wasn’t wifin’ all these hoes.”
“Rappers would be secure with they woman,” Uncle Luke continued “You look at Ice Cube. He’s always been with is 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.”
We kinda agree with Luke. What do you make of his comments?
Some might say that Kanye ain’t been right since his momma died. As Rolling Out reports, after ending his engagement with designer Alexis Phifer in 2008, West began a relationship with former stripper Amber Rose. They called it quits in 2010, then West hooked up with Kim Kardashian in 2012, before marrying her in 2014. They are now expecting their second child, a boy, to join sister North West.
Meanwhile, in a recent interview with The Fader, Uncle Luke talks about his legacy, his infamous supreme court case, which he refers to as a “parody case,” and he reveals how Obama inspired his political ambitions, including a run for mayor.
“Obama energized a whole race of people. All these young people through Facebook, through the internet, it got them all energized and excited about voting. So I realized all these young people had these voter’s registration cards but on the local level, nobody excited them. So, hey, now that we’ve gotten them to get the card, let’s see if we can get them to use it. At the end of the day when I ended up getting 20% of the vote, I had a good idea that was gonna happen. I’m having meetings with anybody and everybody that’s running for office in Dade County.”
