Rich Homie Quan says he’s rethinking the way he writes his lyrics after the YSL RICO case.
On an episode of ‘Sway’s Universe,’ Quan opened up about how he writes his lyrics following YSL’s RICO case. If you’re not aware, Young Thug, Gunna, and other YSL affiliates are currently behind bars as a part of an ongoing RICO case. Prosecutors say they’re planning on using multiple lyrics from the rappers’ catalog to prove they’re a street gang.
Sway asked Quan his opinion on the case and the Atlanta rapper admitted the whole ordeal is causing stress on his creative process.
“Well, for one I really feel that we should protect Black art,” Quan said. “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.”
Quan not only plans to rethink his lyrics because of the RICO case but also because of his children getting older and being able to google him.
“But I stay away from it. I watch what I say like I said earlier. My kids are getting older they can google me,” Quan continued. “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.”
Elsewhere in the interview, Sway asked Quan how can situations such as YSL’s RICO case can be prevented.
“Everything don’t gotta be shoot ’em up bang bang,” Quan said. “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.”
