The rapper believes the fight shouldn’t stop with R. Kelly including wife beaters, people who glorify selling drugs and more. “Where do we draw the line?” he said. 

“As a consumer, I have no problem wanting not support anyone living foul off the mic or glorifying foulness on the mic. Internally though, I struggle..” he wrote under his video that further explained his thoughts. “Because i’m addicted to some of the same music I know is bad for us. And I want to be better. And I know that none of us is without sin, but I think it’s time for a massive shift in how we think about what we consume as well as the artists + messages we support.”
