2Pac Fans Are Mad After Arian Foster Says It’s ‘Dishonest’ to Call His Music ‘Deep’
People are pissed at former NFL running back-turned-rapper Arian Foster.
In a recent interview on Van Lathan’s “The Red Pill” podcast, Foster said that he thinks it is “dishonest” to say that Pac’s music was “deep.”
“Pac is my favorite artist of all-time, but to pretend that his music was just out of this world, intellectually deep, is just dishonest,” said Foster. “I will listen to a 2Pac record faster than anybody else, but to pretend it’s as deep… [2Pac fans] conflate who 2Pac was as a person with who 2Pac was as an artist.”

Todrick Hall Shows Off Wicked’s First African American Good Witch
Todrick Hall had an emotional moment last night.
He went on Instagram and reminisced about being a “poor teenage Black boy from Texas in 2003” wishing to see “Wicked the Musical.” Last night, his dream finally came true—he won the lottery and got front row tickets to see the show for the first time. There was also another special treat, as he saw Brittney Johnson as the first African American Glinda.
“Bravo @sunnybrittney for your flawless performance, your voice was simply angelic,” he wrote. “To see the ensemble members weeping looking up at you as you said your first line ‘It’s good to see me, isn’t it?’ Baby, it sure was good to see you. You, my dear, are definitely ‘Popular’ now lol. You have inspired me & so many other performers of color to knock down barriers and truly ‘Defy Gravity’ and because I saw you ‘I have been changed for good.’”

Last night was in my top 3 most magical theatre experiences of my entire life. When @sunnybrittney descended from the sky in her bubble as the first African American “Glinda” in @wicked_musical last night I immediately started crying. I vividly remember desperately wanting to see this show as a poor teenage black boy from Texas in 2003 & thinking “that’s impossible.” I couldn’t afford the plane ticket to nyc & the tickets were virtually impossible to attain. But I entered the “wicked lottery” and won front row tickets to see the show for $25! MY. LIFE. WAS. CHANGED! As soon as the orchestra started up it was like electric musical theatre sparks started sashaying through my veins and I knew that up on a broadway stage is where I belonged. But, I put invisible handcuffs on myself and said “I will do this show someday” if I work hard, and train, and study, and fight, someday before I die I will be that ensemble dancer twirling that ribbon in “One Short Day!” And even as someone who has seen the show over 30 times and even shamelessly emailed the casting director to be seen for the show, I still never believed that I was right for any roles in this beautiful story all about acceptance no matter the color of your skin or fur. Anyway, last night 15 years later I WEPT when I saw the most beautiful Glinda I had ever seen. I thought of what it would feel like to be a little chocolate girl in the audience seeing this & knowing that someday, she could be the beautiful good witch on that stage. While I wish it hadn’t taken 15 years, I would still like to applaud the “Wicked” creative team & casting directors for opening up my eyes to possibilities that I didn’t honestly think would ever happen. Last night I was truly blown away and so proud. Bravo @sunnybrittney for your flawless performance, your voice was simply angelic. To see the ensemble members weeping looking up at you as you said your first line “It’s good to see me, isn’t it?” Baby, it sure was good to see you. You, my dear, are definitely “Popular” now lol. You have inspired me & so many other performers of color to knock down barriers and truly “Defy Gravity” and because I saw you “I have been changed for good.”
