Instagram just isn’t what it used to be these days, and neither is hip-hop.
Whether you believe that to be a good or bad thing, Tennessee rap star and CMG signee Blac Youngsta has sent us a particularly unusual reminder of that after his latest and boldest visual statement.
What seems to be the most mind-boggling and divisive about the photo he posted to Instagram, if you let his fans tell it, is his reference to legendary hip-hop icon Tupac. And while some fans have stood in his defense, others are standing in shameful disappointment of the 26-year-old rap star.
