Hip Hop fans have no chill!
Sometimes fans like to take things into their own hands when it comes to hip hop. Petitions on Change.org make it possible for the people voice to be heard. Some of these petitions are down right hilarious. From Canadians trying to make a Drake song their new national anthem to banning Kanye from a British music festival, some are downright savage. Check out this ridiculous list of petitions involving rappers.
Kanye West Glastonbury
Kanye was set to headline at Glastonbury. British music fans were not pleased. They started a petition to ban him from the festival.
“Kanye West is an insult to music fans all over the world. We spend hundreds of pounds to attend glasto, and by doing so, expect a certain level of entertainment. Kanye has been very outspoken on his views on music….he should listen to his own advice and pass his headline slot on to someone deserving! Lets prevent this musical injustice now!”
R. Kelly SOULQUARIUS
SOULQUARIUS announced their February lineup, which featured R. Kelly as a headliner. Some weren’t too happy. This petition read, “2017 is around the corner and many of us still have to look on in disgust as a proven predator, rapist, and serial abuser of young Black girls and women remains embraced in the world of music. Stop booking this man. Stop supporting this man. There’s great power in having a voice.”
Drake National Anthem
Canadians love Drake. They love him so much that they petitioned to have his song “Started From The Bottom” replace the current national anthem.
