Tank Defends New-School Rappers Lil Uzi Vert & Lil Yachty: 'Let These Kids Live!' [Photo]

News

There's been a lot of talk about what's 'real' hip-hop vs what's dominating airwaves these days -- with a lot of the focus on the images of rappers such as Lil Uzi Vert and Lil Yachty.


2017 hip-hip is NOT your daddy's hip-hop and Tank wants you to know that it's okay! The R&B vet took to Instagram to defend the youth and stood up for everyone's right to be different.

Take a look at his post below.

I'm utterly disgusted!! I've never seen so many grown black men speak out against young black kids fighting to earn a living in this already difficult world! Yes they're different but so was MJ and Prince! Y'all still celebrate those men highly with no thought to their differences. The crazy part is that these kids actually represent positivity. They give a voice to those who feel like outcasts and may even have a hard time fitting in. These kids make being different ok and give hope to those who may feel like their life has no value. Maybe you'd feel better if these kids ran up on your car high and tooled up with extended clips and told you to "get down, lay down, or be found!" That would make more sense to you huh? You definitely don't want them to live their dreams and have fun entertaining the world! You definitely don't want them to feed their families and get they mama out the hood. You niggas kill me wanting your music to stay in the 80s and the 90s but gotta have the 2018 Benz! Everything changes! Everything evolves! It may not be for you but it is for the millions that stream it and show up to be entertained by it! Let these kids live!!.. #RnBMoney #RnBSoldiers #TheGeneral #savagecomingsoon #musicislife
