Noname said she’s taking a break from performing shows and making music. The rapper took to Twitter to explain her reasoning for the hiatus: that she’s tired of her audience’s demographics, saying she’s fed up with performing for crowds consisting predominately of white people.
It all started when the rapper posted a photo of a woman putting on clown makeup. “me consistently creating content that is primarily consumed by a white audience who would rather shit on me than challenge their liberalism because some how liking Lizzos music absolves them of racist tendencies,” she wrote.
Noname then explained her stance in more detail, writing that other rappers such as DaBaby, Megan Thee Stallion, and Smino have more diverse crowds at their shows.
