MOBO NOMINEE K KOKE RESPONDS TO BLACK PEOPLE WHO ACCUSE HIM OF TRYING TO ‘ACT BLACK’

kOKE

ROC Nation’s K Koke has been a ‘music news’ item since he revealed via Twitter last week that he has now parted company with his label RCA. But according to the rapper he is still working with Jay Z’s ROC Nation. (CLICK HERE to read if you missed it).

When I posted the news, as usual my Mad News readers did not hold back and aired their views on K Koke (CLICK HERE to read the comments section) and neither did So Solid’s Megaman or rapper Speech Debelle.

Koke now answers his critics….

In response to Koke’s rant Twitter user @BigDaddiWard sums up my thoughts on this.

Mad News readers… your thoughts please….

  1. Shaking my head… Seriously how can he talk about not seeing colour? It’s because he has the privilege of people not being able to look at his colour because he’s white! Others don’t have that privilege because the first thing that others notice about us is about is that we’re black, Asian or whatever.

    He thinks he’s in the same situation as the black people he grew up with, but I’ll give him some credit because I don’t think he’s wise enough to realise that he truly is in a better situation and has one up because of him being white.

  2. I don’t even know where to begin. I’ll start off by saying this fool is a prize dickhead, he should go back to Stonebridge (wherever the hell that is), sell drugs again, get caught and do time seeing as he’s so proud of his environment. Go and live that hard knock life you love to brag about so much. Let it consume you whole and spit you out. Chief!

  3. As some one who lives in Harlesden / Stongebridge i know this area is not pretty and the particular estate he grew up in was a nasty breeding ground for the worst things in life. Thankfully half of Stongebridge has been knocked down and the local authority are at least making amends to the shambles of years ago, So i give K Koke that.
    But what winds me up on this thing is when you are given just the small sign of a chance to improve your life people like K Koke never takes advantage when it has been handed to them. Why is he always begging back the life he came from when he had a chance for change?

    Also why oh why do people in 2013 link black people to anyone who has a “urban” accent and maybe lacking in a decent education? Is that all that black people are now? Why is this stupid notion supported by so many black people these days?
    He has been raised, brought up and schooled in WHITE ENGLISH RUN DOWN LONDON LOWER CLASS CULTURED BRITAIN (WITH A SPRINKLE OF AMERICAN GHETTOISMS LIFESTYLE)!!! not Africa, not the Caribbean and not any other black owned or governed land.

  4. “Lol yo I get it black people hav been picked on 4 years an worse but it’s 2013 wen I was born that wasn’t gwanning anymore— ”

    What the HELL does this mean? Does he actually think that racism, racist attacks and racist murders stopped in the 1980s when he was born????

    Okay stop talking.

    Spot on. Couldn’t agree more. Said it all to be honest.

    I don’t think that’s the point he was trying to convey.

  6. I think ROC nation signed him because he is white. They have a habit of signing different.

    The police are fru with you because you are acting black. WAKE UP!!!

    I am fru wid you.

  7. K Koke is in a privileged position because the colour of his skin whether he likes it or not. A big reason Roc Nation signed him was because of the colour of his skin, look at him, he gets a little bit of treatment black people have been getting for 100s of years to just get a 9-5 job and look how he is crying, talking about he needs to go back to the roads, like he doesn’t have other options, and the fact of him talking about racism being over for black people shows just how ignorant and dumb he is.

  8. and other thing, what he doesn’t realise is, the reason why he is being blacklisted is being of him rolling with black guys and black people going to his concerts, so this it’s 2013 that isn’t gwarning anymore shows just how stupid he is.

  9. @Chico-Rei

    This is what I have been thinking and saying for some time. The police have targeted him because of the “crew” he rolls with.

    My friend suggested today that Koke follow in Plan B’s footsteps. Lose the road man crew, then put on a suit and start singing Soul music, then write a screenplay and make a film. And on the odd occasion rap about his life living on the Stonebridge estate. He would get away with this, he has the luxury like Plan B and Professor Green to be able to dip in and out because of his skin colour.

    Artists who look like Giggs and Megaman don’t have the same luxury.

  10. White people are so quick to school black people on racism but cannot school themselves on racism. Brudda talks about racism but cannot fight the racism battle where it matters unless it’s affecting his pockets. But I can imagine the Bruddas you hang out with say the same thing. That they didn’t grow up around racism therefore it’s not a problem in this day and age. Start acting white and get rich quick. Watch your wheel of fortunes turn around. Kmt

  11. He chats a lot of nonsense in his rap music. Your music doesn’t benefit anyone but yourself and your pocket. It’s vile like Jay z’s. What a mentor! The police could stop till forever and I wouldn’t care even if you started living on the streets and eating out of the dustbin. You don’t add anything of value to your music consumers, you pollute their minds and dumb them down with your garbage.

    When he calms down, he will find that him being dropped was a blessing in disguise.

  12. Good grief, this boy is really dunce. He’s one of those white people that scream “Racist”, once any discussion about race is attempted by black people who are not dunce like him. He is a racist and like typical white racists who roll with black people, he only respects a certain kind of “black”. He’s a product of his environment? So what about the many white and black kids who never followed his drugs selling path who also lived on the old Stonebridge Estate? This is what happens when black people stop respecting black intellectuality. We have our own cruffs to deal with, but becasue “our” cruffness” is seen as generally more attractive than other “ethnic cruffness”, we have to deal with the other cruffs of other ethnicities/races who follow behind our lost kids.
    This kind of thing makes me wish for the days when you had to be more than “down” to even think of dropping any patois or Black British slang in front of Black people, if you wasn’t black. Better still, even if you weren’t jeered and mocked, a white person knew that they were white. However since our fight for equality has been interpreted by too many of us as being able to walk down the road with a white partner without being called “nigger’, Black people (mostly the brothers who like a white lady) think that the fight is over. I never thought I would see the day when certain black people would be so thirsty for a white friend to the point that nuff of them get prang when a black person even mentions the word “white”. That’s why this dunce bat thinks like he thinks and really believes it. No black people in real life have given him the required jerk up!
    We Black people in Britain, especially in the much lauded Multicultural London (as if New York isn’t multicultural) need to realise that we are not tolerated unless we fit into a very narrow box of what has been prescribed to us as “black”. Sorry to sound sniffy, but a very large part of me resents this new “tolerance”. I can only see Black Men or women who want to partner up with white people as benefitting from it( nothing particularly wrong with that). Everybody else best to keep their apparently” racist” thoughts to themselves.
    As for the” don’t see colour” rubbish? Pleeze! Speech Debelle obviously hit a nerve. This boy, like too many of his lost black crew immediately called her the worst insult (to a white person) he could fathom…”RACIST”. To how so many of them carry on, you would think that they would rather be called a paedophile than a racist. Like a typical narcissist, he can imitate the horror of what it is to be accused of racism, but he doesn’t feel it. If he wasn’t a racist, he wouldn’t have projected the title onto Speech Debelle for no good reason. Typical English passive aggression. To mention colour has now been deemed “racist”. That’s a good way of inhibiting discussion. Props to the school curriculum. Labour brought in this political correct rubbish and now we have dunce bat kids who do not even know that a large part of what they should be talking about has been denied to them.
    Give me American racism any day of the week.

    THANK YOU!!!

    The black culture i was born and brought up in is rich, intelligent and cultured. This ghetto street nonsense is a british phenomenon. Damn cheek.

  14. Given a few more years with roc nation and not being blocked by police, with some bit of success and money in his bag, he would have been one of those of white people who feel superior when around black people. Does he really think he is any more real than gigs? Hahaha what a joker. It’s as if it’s a contest of who is dumber and who says the dumbest things that don’t make sense.

    They would not know what real was if it hit them in the face after living the fantasy world for too long. Cannot tell real from fiction because that’s how warped their world has become.

    You are welcome to go back to the streets and push those drugs. It’s your life and your future, but for someone who is so real and talks tough, you are a coward.

    You might be a product of your environment but these are the consequences of being a product of that environment. You are an undesirable and unwanted in society. You have to carry the cross like everybody else.

  15. If he had hang around ROC nation for a little longer, I bet you the word nigger would have crept in in his music as time went on with the help of Jay Z’s smart mouth and warped way of seeing things, freedom of speech and expression malarkey with no consequences, it’s just a word we reclaimed mantra etc etc. It wasn’t long before Gwyneth Paltrow was spewing the same garbage after hanging out with him and his side kicks defending her and giving her a pass. NAS too defending foolishness.

    Ten years from now he will be thanking his creator God for getting released from them. Right now it’s a sore subject.

  16. People like K Koke and to a degree Speech Debelle confuse race with social standing (which admittedly can often go hand in hand). Yes Stonebridge had/has a large proportion of black people living there but they are not only black, they are also poor. I certainly dont view his mannerisms as ‘black’ but of a person who is uneducated and probably from a poor background. i.e. lower/ working class. Let’s not confuse race and culture with socio-demographics

  17. so this guy associates blackness with slang and off key spellings. feels racism was not alive when he was growing up and that in 2013 its done with. He doesnt know how to embrace the truth. Everyone resorts to “black” dialects linguistic play on words to sound cool but cultural appropriation is real and this koke guy sounds like he has lost his identity. denial is so dangerous. thankfully I have never heard of him before and my ears have not been hurt
