Old school rap legend Luther “Uncle Luke” Campbell is certainly not one to hold his tongue!
The former leader of 2 Live Crew, best known ‘booty music’ with raunchy lyrics, recently offered his take on ghostwriting, which led to him blaming the demise of hip hop to a new dating trend… ‘wifin h**s.’
Campbell says the industry has totally changed since he was in it and in a recent interview with WatchLOUD, he gives Kanye West (who famously ‘wifed’ Amber Rose then officially ‘wifed’ Kim Kardashian) props for being a “trendsetting” musical pioneer, stating:
It used to be a difference, before Kanye West, rappers wasn’t wifin’ all these h**s. Rappers would be secure with they woman. You look at Ice Cube. He’s always been with is wife. 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.
It’s totally different nowadays.
