"I'm team Kaepernick all day," Cannon told Raquel Harper during a Raq Rants chat this week. "I call it cultural equity. So, we not mad about Big Boi for being on the Super Bowl. He's for the people. But for someone like Travis Scott, he's gotta walk gingerly."
Asked what Scott has to do to prove he's also for the people, Cannon further explained his "cultural equity" comment. "It's more about truly having integrity to who you are in your music and your art form, the people you interact with, the people you choose to procreate with. ... That decision wasn't for the culture, but we not mad at you!" he said before softening that assessment a bit.
"I love white women!" he continued. "Let's set the record straight! But that's the thing: It's cultural equity at the end of the day."
Last week, Common also criticized Scott's Super Bowl move, noting how the NFL "blackballed" Colin Kaepernick for his admirable protest. "[Travis Scott is] a dope dude but I really don't wanna support none of that stuff," he told a paid botherer. "More than anything, I respect people like Rihanna that said they didn't wanna do that and they ain't gonna support that. But Travis is doing what he gotta do, doing what he feels. I feel like, man, I wish he wouldn't, to be honest [but] it's his own choice though, man."
At any rate, prepare yourself for whatever the fuck Adam Levine and his 432-person band have in store for the football-assisted performance Feb. 3.
