Honestly fuck this lady......i've had to work a few of her shows. The way she treats basically everybody around her (crew, our crew, fans) is infuriating. Even Nas caught one song and was like "lets go back to the fucking hotel".

She's been performing this song for awhile now. Did she change the lyrics or just say it's dedicated to recent events?

I saw that. I was just pointing out that there was audio of this posted back in 2012 I think. It sounded almost exactly the same, but I could be wrong. So, I just thought someone might know.

Not that this is a complete justification of her thoughts about white people, but, if this is the infraction upon which you gleaned she is an "admitted" racist, then I disagree.

Also, we don't have to like the artist. Sometimes it's ok just to like the art.

She is a brilliant singer. Absolutely gifted in ways that not many, if any, are. If it takes me disagreeing with her politics, views, etc just to have her keep singing, then that is a bitter pill I'll swallow.

I'm staying away from the unnecessary bs and enjoying this song.
