Robin Thicke Speaks on Working With Feuding Rappers

Published December 16, 2009

On the heels of his latest offering, "Sex Therapy," soul singer Robin Thicke sat down with BET.com to speak on working with hip-hop artists who are currently at odds with each other in one way, shape or form, including Lil Wayne, 50 Cent, Rick Ross, Game and Jay-Z.

“When it comes to artists and their beefs like 50 and Rick or Jay and Game or something, to me, I don’t have a crew,” Thicke told BET.com. “I don’t have a gang. My gang is my wife [actress Paula Patton]. And we don’t roll that deep, it’s just me and her.”

“I make music and the difference between all of their beefs is they were all musicians first before they had beef, they all just wanted to make great music and it’s my job to make great music," he continued. "I don’t get caught up in the beef. If anybody had to call me out to choose sides, then I might be stuck in that situation, but luckily nobody’s put me there yet.”

Robin’s "Sex Therapy" featuring Snoop Dogg, Nicki Minaj, KiD CuDi, Jazmine Sullivan and Estelle, is available in stores now. In related news, Thicke and Minaj performed "Shake it 4 Daddy" at this album release party at Butter in NYC earlier this year. Click here to see photos.
