Me and the homey Tazz Daddy( Empowerment Speaker, Life Coach, and DJ on Power 99 in Philly) go way back, so when he dropped the video of him asking rapper Kreayshawn of “Gucci Gucci” fame, a very fair and legitimate question about her and her White Girl Mob’s use of the dreaded N-Word, he hit me with the link.
What I saw were some incredible racial dynamics. Seemingly, because she was asked the question by a “Big Black Man” standing in front of her, Kreayshawn immediately gets shook. All that “mobbin” disappeared and tough, independent, “hood” Kreayshawn was replaced by suburbia white girl victim Kreayshawn. But, if she never said the word, nor according to her, is responsible for her girl, why should she feel threatened? Tazz wasn’t the first to ask the question about her use of the N-Word, so why wasn’t she or her team prepared? And ultimately in 2011 is it time to let everyone say the N-Word?
In this exclusive interview, I asked Tazz Daddy how he felt about the firestorm he caused by asking what seemed to be a simple question.
Did you feel you approached her in a aggressive or combative manner?
How could I approach someone in a combative manner when I have an even tone of voice and I’m 3 feet away? I asked her a question that several people wanted me to ask! If she REALLY felt threatened, her manager would have stepped in.
I just saw a video by AllHipHop.com asking Kreayshwan the same question about the N-Word a month earlier but I didn’t see them get any backlash, do you think the dynamics of you being a black man had anything to do with the uproar?
Did you learn anything from the interview and controversy that you didn’t know before?
Ask a white girl about the free wheel use of the N-Word: I’m the Anti Christ.
Ironically, Tazz has a book coming out August 23rd called, “Common Sense Ain’t Common”. You can preorder it at his website TazzDaddy.com and check out his excellent video response to the controversy.
