Detroit rapper Royce 5'9" thinks it's time for everybody to stop being so politically correct - and even says that it's ok to be racist.
The rapper sat down to chop it up with Level, where he told them that he believes that it's ok with people to disagree with one another. When the publication asked him how he feels about the fact that many of his supporters may also support President Donald Trump, he was fine about it.
"I touch on perspective a lot on [The Allegory]. I'm enamored of the idea that two people could be looking at the same thing, seeing it two totally different ways, and neither one of them is really wrong. Your truth is how you see it, based off your perspective. How you feel is your truth. If you can live in that truth, and me and you can agree on music and coexist in the same environment, the same show? We don't have to agree on shit as long as the right song is on," he said, referring to his new album, which drops next week.
He continued, "We need to start being OK with not agreeing on everything. It's all right to not agree," he stated. "It's even all right to be racist. I'm not the racism police. I'm very aware that I have to guard my energy. I can't put myself in the position where I'm getting upset all the time at the way that somebody views me. The only thing that I demand is respect. That's it. I can have dinner with a racist person as long as you're not disrespecting me. People just get so uptight when you want to start talking about the tough topics. Everybody ignoring it is not going to make it go away!"
