Tyrese Goes Off Over Rapper Yung Joc’s New Epic Hairdo & Some Agree w/Him This Time
If there’s one thing we’ve learned about singer/actor, Tyrese Gibson, it’s that dude never fails to speak his mind, regardless of who doesn’t like it. Even though we may not always agree with his point of view, we always prefer entertainers who aren’t afraid to step outside of that politically correct box outta fear of what the public will think.
That brings us to Tyrese’s recent rant about today’s hip hop artists and the level of “disrespect” being displayed through the art form and the culture. Tyrese, like many of us Old Schoolers, feels that hip hop has been so far removed from it’s origin that it’s almost unrecognizable. To further prove his point, he posted an image of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta rapper, Yung Joc, with a freshly permed, spritz-curled hairdo’ and called out hip hop legends to back him:
Who’s responsible for nighas getting a pass for letting this shit go down in hip hop???? How did the OG’s in this game let this go? This is the new image of hip hop ..? Why is this ok..?? Here’s my message to Ice Cube, Easy E, Busta Rhymes, Tupac, Snoop, Kurupt, B.I.G Dr Dre and Run-DMC, Lil KiM , Ed Lover & Dre STEVE Stoute, Jadakiss I vow to HONOR the culture and disrespect it on any level with what I’m about to do with this #IDentityTheftAlbum This new album is inspired by Jay-Z My motto is #IDentityTheftDoubleAlbum is Jay’s spirit, PAC’s Soul and Sonically Dre’s Ears…… I know your first instincts is to say GTFOH put me in the ( Singer and Actor box and throw away the key )…but you will see folks very very soon that this rap album is far from play play…….. #VoltronRecordz #VoltronChairman #RocNation #MarkPitts #ChrisLighty #V#SteveStoute #JayBrown #TyTy #SwizzBeats #EdLover #SnoopDogg #Kurupt #BustaRhymes #RevRun #Facts #BlackTy I came here this album will change #HipHop save this post……. #IDidThisForTheCulture #LaughNowDickRideLater
Some people were so surprised by Joc’s hair, that they questioned if it was photoshopped or for real. It’s unclear if the photo Tyrese shared is photoshopped or not, but even if it is, it still wouldn’t necessarily be outside of Yung Joc’s preferred style choices, because the below photo of his other recent hairdo, we know for a fact is 100% REAL because Joc confirmed it on several occassions…
So, do y’all agree with Tyrese on this, or no?
Tyrese’s Other Beefs
By the way, while we’re at it, we might as well, recap a few other times Tyrese has spoken his mind:
The Rock- Tyrese is still beefin’ with his Fast & Furious co-star for stepping away from the Fast & Furious franchise to do a spin-off without the rest the Fast team, except one of them. Here’s what Tyrese recently wrote online for all the world to see:
“Diversity, love, multi ethnic worldwide multi generational, United Nations, One Race, Fast Family…… Until Dewayne showed up I guess this whole time he had a problem cause he wasn’t the ONLY ONE on the movie poster……….. I guess dreams do come true congratulations to @hhgarcia41 and @therock you guys are just amazing you really broke up the #FastFamily I tried to warn you guys… You thought I was hating…… I was simply fighting to keep the family together what makes us great is when you see us all TOGETHER we don’t fly solo….. #MyLastPost today….. I got 3 years of venting on this clown – They offered but YOU didn’t have to agree with a solo #HobbsMovie #OriginalFastFamily we salute you and stand on your shoulders #VinDiesel #PaulWalker #RobCohen #RomanTej were offered a spin off we TURNED IT DOWN!!!”
Ginuwine & Tank vs. Tyrese-
And we can’t forget about that time when Tyrese was going at it with his former TGT group members, Tank and Ginuwine. They blamed him for breaking up the group. However, Tyrese stood his ground, by stating that from a business standpoint, he deserved a larger cut because of the many more millions of fans he brought to the table, through his larger social media and box office following. Then Tank and Ginuwine hit below the belt when they posted a video clip of themselves online, taking jabs at Tyrese’s dark skin. That’s where Tank and Ginuwine, in my humble opinion, LOST that particular battle. I have nothin’ but love for Ginuwine and Tank as artists, but that self-hate display over skin complexion was just stupid. Moving on…
His baby momma- And unfortunately, there’s the current drama Tyrese is having with his baby momma. Hope that gets resolved soon.
