Quavo shuns Hennessy, claiming brand doesn’t support Black people

Quavo is asking his Black followers to boycott the Hennessy brand and is pushing both his fans and fellow rappers to refrain from supporting the cognac brand as they are not demonstrating support for the Black community. “My Folks Need To Stop Drinkin Hennessy. They Don’t Fuck Wit Us!” Quavo tweeted. “No mo Rapping about Henny.”

The announcement also revealed that the rapper will stick to cognac, although he will now turn to the Martell brand. “Martell Way Is How I’m Coming and They Appreciate It Better! Martell Blue Swift!” he wrote.

This is not the first time that a brand is being boycotted for making money off of the Black community. Last year, T.I. pushed his followers to boycott Gucci after it advertised a sweater that resembled Blackface.

“APOLOGY NOT ACCEPTED!!!! We ain’t going for this ‘oops my bad I didn’t mean to be racist and disrespectful towards your people,’” he wrote after the company issued an apology.

“If we stop buying ANYTHING they MUST correct any and ALL of our concerns,” he said. “That’s THE ONLY WAY we can get some RESPECT PUT ON OUR NAME!!!!”

Recently, after the shooting of George Floyd, several brands have been shunned for their racially insensitive logos and policies. When people criticized Aunt Jemima and Uncle Ben’s, they stated that they will alter aspects about their brand. However, Master P asked his followers to lend their support to his Black-owned alternative and to Black businesses in general.

“When you look at Aunt Jemima, and you look at Uncle Ben, we don’t own those products, we never did,” he said. “We need to understand that we’re not going to be able to put money back in our [Black] community because we don’t own those brands. Our grandparents [have] been having us buy those products because they think it’s people that look like us.”

“What we fighting for right now, we got to do it on a financial level and start fighting for those rights on the financial side and start showing people that we have people that are thinking outside the box, coming up with great ideas,” he continued.

T.I. pushes people to government funding to purchase land

People are being encouraged by T.I. to buy land using the funds they receive from the government.

On Wednesday, the emcee decided to discuss financial suggestions with his followers on Instagram. He stated that they must refrain from buying luxurious items such as mink coats and Cartier jewelry, and instead, purchase land.

“We were just in the studio having a discussion and I just feel the need to share it,” he said in the short clip. “All y’all getting that money from the government … ain’t no more mink coats in the store — and it’s summer time — ain’t more Cartiers, it ain’t no more Louis Vuitton — go get you some property please. Please y’all, go buy some property.”

Someone in the background then shouted, “Get an LLC God damnit.” Tip replied, “Listen, that could be a big, complex and advance … too much paperwork and procedure in there.”

He continued, “It could be a patch of dirt, bruh. Go to yo’ hood — it ain’t gotta have no house on it or nothing — just buy it. Just buy it and hold it. Ya dig what I’m saying? Now that’s it. I told you. Can’t say you didn’t know.”

Previously, it was reported that the rapper behind Paper Trail will educate people through the “Business of Trap Music” class at Clark Atlanta University this fall. The class will encompass the history of the origin of the sub-genre as well as the economical basis of the impact of trap music on today’s hip hop.

“I’m excited to share my experiences and whatever resources or information I have that can be an asset for the future,” Tip said in a statement. “Drugs have existed for as long as humans have been on earth and music has existed for quite some time as well. The commonality that threads the two together is what makes trap music a dominant force in culture today.”
