Rapper Noname Says She’s Done Performing For ‘White’ Liberal Audiences

Chicago rapper Noname has made a bold statement on Twitter today, specifically tweeting,

“Me consistently creating content that is primarily consumed by a white audience who would rather s**t on me than challenge their liberalism because somehow liking Lizzos music absolves them of racist tendencies.”

When a fan responded to her tweet by stating Black people who listen to her music aren’t the concert-going type, Noname said, “That’s real. Unfortunately, I’m not going to keep performing for predominately white crowds. I have two shows on the books then after that I’m chilling on making music. If y’all don’t wanna leave the crib I feel it. I don’t want to dance on a stage for white people.”

Or will she lose some of her fanbase?
