Waka Flocka Says Stacey Dash Is Wrong And Right About BET And Black History Month

Waka Flocka sees where Stacey Dash is coming from.

Stacey Dash got the masses riled up once again with her response to the controversy surrounding the 2016 Oscars. As entertainers continued to express their discontent with the lack of nominations for actors of color, Dash sat down with Fox News to give her two cents, which ended with her denouncing BET and Black History Month. Slamming Jada Pinkett-Smith and a host of others who voiced their opinions, Dash’s take led to a firestorm (as usual).

“I think it’s ludicrous. We have to make up our minds; either we want to have segregation or integration. If we don’t want segregation, then we need to get rid of channels like BET and the BET Awards, and the [NAACP] Image Awards, where you’re only awarded if you’re black. If it were the other way around, we would be up in arms. It’s a double standard […] Just like there shouldn’t be a Black History Month. We’re American, that’s it.”

One person in particular was able to see where dash was coming from, however. In a video of his own, Waka Flocka took the position that the controversial actress/news host was both right and wrong for her sentiments. Stating that she “couldn’t break down fully what she was trying to say,” the rapper echoed her feelings towards segregation with regards to the network and the month-long celebration.

“But honestly, I always felt like that,” he admitted. “Like why the f**k we got BET? BET is for black people and MTV is for white people? Think about it. Why the f**k we got Black History Month only in February? How can the people that took our history, give us our history for one month? Just think about it.”

Donald Trump, thanks to urging from Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, is attempting to help free the rapper, however, it was reported earlier today (Jul. 22) that his efforts may make matters worse for A$AP.

Trump's Interference In A$AP Rocky's Case May Actually Make Matters Worse

According to reports, there’s a chance that Donald Trump’s call to the Swedish Prime Minister about A$AP Rocky’s removal may result in a worse scenario than originally anticipated.

Per TMZ, the prosecutor has reportedly been “immovable” on release pending charges, even though members of the United States State Dept. have also gotten involved in addition to Trump. The State Department reportedly tried to get the rapper out of jail last Thursday to no avail.

“Sources connected to the case actually think intervention by the State Dept. and the President -- who essentially said he would guarantee bail if they would release Rocky -- could actually BACKFIRE because they are trying to get in the prosecutor's business.”

The Prime Minister reportedly told 45 that “everyone is equal under the law” in Sweden, and that “the [U.S.] government cannot and will not attempt to influence the legal proceedings."

Last week, it was reported that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West contacted Trump about helping to facilitate Rocky’s removal. "I personally don't know A$AP Rocky but I can tell you he has tremendous support from the African American community in this country,” he said in a press conference last week.

Lil Nas X's "Old Town Road" Ties Record For Longest-Running Number One Of All Time

For the 16th week in a row, Lil Nas X’s hit “Old Town Road” sits atop the Billboard Hot 100. This means that the track from the 20-year-old ATLien is tied for the longest-running No. 1 of all time.

According to reports, the single from the 7 EP ties Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee and Justin Bieber’s ”Despacito," as well as Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men's "One Sweet Day” for the record. If he stays at No. 1 for one more week, he will be the first song in the history of American popular music to reign for an unprecedented 17 weeks.

The initial song made waves  earlier this year after getting the boot from Billboard’s Country charts for allegedly not implementing enough elements of the genre. Since then, “Old Town Road” has seen three featured artists on two separate remixes– Billy Ray Cyrus, Young Thug and Mason Ramsey. Last week, country music icon Dolly Parton hinted at hopping on the song’s next remix.

Do you think “Old Town Road” will set a new record next week? Sound off in the comments.
