Chrisette Michelle is speaking out against her “Aston Martin Music” collaborator Rick Ross, after he walked out of last night’s Soul Train Awards.
Atlanta played home to the ceremony Wednesday that brought a bevy of celebs including Ross, who lost the award for “Best Hip-Hop” song to Eminem and stormed out angrily.
Chrisette and a number of guests were offended by Ross’ hasty exit, so the famed songstress took to her personal blog to air the Bawse out. According to Chrisette, if Ross’ walk-out was Hip-Hop she wants no part of it.
“If this is the way hip hop is then I denounce it.
This is not about ego. This is about what I can bring to the world. My life is for the people. I live to give…Who stands off at an award show because they don’t win? An award is winning at being as “stuck in a category” as possible.
Congratulations to all the trophy holders who won at being the most like every one else.”
She also adds that she’s praised for being different and denounces all the egos in Hip-Hop that call for bashing and venting in rhymes.
“I could have sworn hip hop was on the come up. But apparently rapping is about venting, bashing, chauvinistic pigging, and EGO. Not cool. Don’t LET me start rapping.
They say…I’m ecclectic. I’m underrated. I’m different. Well If I win an award it’s because I paved a way. Every award I’ve won was new in it’s category. You know why? Because I’m amazing at being my damn self.
Is all hip hop like that? Absolutely not! But some of it certainly is. Let me spit a few bars. I’m not that kinda hip hop. I rep hip hop too. But not that kinda ego trippin foolery.
Chrisette Michele – the girl on that Aston Martin Music record…”
