Fetty Wap – My Way (Racially Insensitive?)

fetty-wap-press-2015-billboard-650-cTake a moment to imagine yourself in a room filled with individuals from diverse ethnic backgrounds. You’re inside of a booming nightclub with music blaring and drinks flowing at a pace far too common in today’s world. You make your way over to the dance floor after hearing the all too familar crooning “Yeahhhh Baby” by New Jersey’s own Fetty Wap the One Eyed boy wonder with a voice and sound unique as it is infectious.

The Song Playing is his newest radio hit” My Way”

All in all its a simple song with a catchy hook that simply continues to carve out Fetty Waps lane of “ignorant R&B” (His words not mine) All is well in fact as the crowd sings along to the song until you reach the 1:17 mark of the track where Fetty sings the lyrics “…How dare that NiggER run his Mouth”

All this happened to me in fact not too long ago and As I sat there with fetty playing I started to wonder if my feelings of discomfort were unfounded or even worth talking about so I decided to take to the web. Let me know Is this just a case of me reading into things or would you like your child Niece or Nephew Singing along to Good Ol’ Fetty? Not just that but is the lyric including Nigger ok in todays music, mainstream or otherwise or should we only be allowed to say nigga? I’m curious. – WB
