A rapper just learned the hard way that it is never alright for a white person to say the N-word.
Footage of a recent rap battle gone wrong has been making the rounds online. In the video, things got violent after a white rapper who VladTV identified as William Wolf said the N-word. Midway through a verse, the rapper said, “I ain’t like these other battle rappers, they talk too much. Saying I can’t say the N-word in this battle.” Wolf barely managed to utter “my n***a” before his opponent took a swing.
The other men in the room quickly intervened, but not before Wolf could be seen reeling from the blow.
The clip quickly blew up online, where it has been shared by several accounts. One version of the video, shared by @_RickSmoove on Twitter, has already earned nearly 15,000 retweets and 67,200 likes. In the comments, people have been discussing whether or not the white rapper deserved the hit. “He didn’t get hit hard enough,” one commenter said.
Exactly! He challenged not just his opponent, but everyone else in the room to do something about it with his setup and delivery. As if to say "I said the N-word, do something about it"
it was deliberately disrespectful to not just his opponent but every brotha in there.

I'm mad he was the only one to throw a punch. I'm disappointed in that whole room pic.twitter.com/53rFKMKYZ6

What did he think was gonna happen ?, that’s the problem we’ve allowed them to get comfortable saying it pic.twitter.com/n6oZj0LY9m

The majority of commenters appeared to believe that the punch was very much deserved, but some users flocked to his defense. “It’s battle rap, you can literally say anything you want in your round,” one user wrote. “Even if it’s disrespectful.”
Some people seemed to think that the word was just an excuse for the white rapper’s opponent to hit him. “Nah bruh just needed a reason to end the battle,” one commenter said. “White boy was giving it to em.”
Only the guy he was rapping against was offended though, white boy had decent bars and his opponent just wanted a reason to hit him

Regardless of the reasoning behind the punch, Wolf is probably rethinking his word choice.
- Blueface accused of ‘humiliating’ the needy by throwing money at them
- Cardi B says she was sexually harassed by a photographer at magazine shoot
- Did Rick Ross unfollow his daughter on Instagram over pregnancy?
