Rich Homie Quan doesn't want his kids to get the wrong idea of him from his lyrics
Rich Homie Quan reveals he has changed his songwriting approach since Young Thug, Gunna and 28 other YSL members were indicted in a RICO case. Speaking during an interview on Sway's Universe, Quan added that his kids are the main reason he rethinks his lyrics these days.
The authorities have been using lyrics from YSL rappers as evidence in the RICO case. Lyrics are being taken from songs like “Anybody,” “Take it to Trial,” “Ski” with Gunna and “Slatty.”
“Well, for one I really feel that we should protect Black art,” Quan began. “Music is music. A lot of those songs are made from the third person anyway. I could have saw it, you could have saw it, and I also wanna say free Thugger man. Free YFN Lucci too. ‘Cause at the same time man those guys still got families. They got daughters and mothers that depend on them so I wouldn't want nobody in them situation.”
He added: “But I stay away from it. I watch what I say like I said earlier. My kids are getting older they can google me … so I care about what I'm saying in these songs, 'cause I know they're listening and they gonna be, ‘My daddy Rich Homie, listen to what he said,' so I don't want them songs shoot 'em up bang bang.”
“Everything don't gotta be shoot 'em up bang bang,” Quan continued. “You make 'em shoot 'em up bang bang then you put a target on your back before you made a RICO. Man so let's get back to Hip Hop music.”
