Up and coming artist Santogold is upset over people labeling her music as hip-hop. The young singer finds it ‘racist’ for people to do so. The singer is not a fan of R&B and during a recent interview with ‘The Lipster’ she made sure that everyone knew so:
I didn’t grow up as a big fan of R&B and, like, what is the big shocker? It’s stupid. In the beginning I thought that was funny. I’m an ‘MC’, I’m a ‘soul singer’, I’m a ‘dance hybrid artist’. And some guy said I looked like Kelly Rowland!”
Santogold claims her album is “a pop record”, saying: “I made sure it was.”
Ironically, it’s likely Santogold’s record label ‘Warners’ is responsible for supplying genre information.
Ummm ok then, what the hell type of music is it then?!! Whatevs, shes still dope to me. Even though she doesn’t embrace her black culture. If your not familiar with Santogold, than you can check out her music HERE, and make sure you add her on MYSPACE if you like what you hear!
