What happened? Do we really need to explain? Cute country singer wins award. Outraged rapper rushes stage and rants about how Beyoncé should have won. Although rapper promises singer “I’ma let you finish,” she doesn’t. The whole world gets mad at the rapper, and an Internet meme is born. Will we ever be finished with “I’ma let you finish”? No.
Complex says: Like most white pop stars seeking hip-hop cred, Taylor might try and act hood when it helps make news but when shit gets real they always fall back. When some real hip-hop shit went down, Taylor was speechless, and worked the victim angle for all it was worth. Kinda reminds us of the time Justin Timberlake started crying on Punk’d.
