Kevin Gates sat down with VladTV and discussed the idea of snitching, saying that even though he’s a two-time felon, the idea of becoming a rat disgusts him and that it would never be an option.
Gates is particularly passionate about the topic, as he reveals some of his closest friends are doing long bids and even life in prison not because of evidence or police work, but simply because other so called “street dudes” pointed them out in court. He also shares his confusion over why rappers want to be affiliated with dope boys, assuming they think it will give them street cred. In reality, cops are now using rappers as a way to get to the real street guys, making it easier for them to get locked up.
Sounds pretty good.
South Memphis rapper Young Dolph sat down with VladTV to share his opinion on the origins of the “Migos flow,” and how lean became so popular over the last few years.
When asked about 2 Chainz’s claim that Three 6 Mafia started the choppy “Migos flow,” Dolph neither agrees nor disagrees, but says that there are only so many flows out there and some rappers will inevitably sound a like.
When asked about pics of him sipping lean on Instagram, Dolph admits that it isn’t good to promote the use of sizzurp, as kids see it and want to give it a try. He also shares his view on the sudden rise in popularity of lean, as the mixture has been out for years but has had a strong resurgence within Hip-Hop as of late. Dolph says the fact that the South has so many eyes on it right now is what’s responsible for the increase in the substance’s popularity.
