    Someone was trolling them, right? You’d think they couldn’t miss the irony of adding a rap verse on a song about country music being too commercial. Not to mention the fact that Merle Haggard and Johnny Cash would think Combs’ song is too commercial. :idk:

    Googling this Upchurch fellow sent me down a country/rap rabbit hole. I had no idea this was a thing. But this Adam Calhoun dude seems like a real treat.

    My point was saying a taboo word to sound cool does not equate to him being racist.

    No, but it surely means he feels comfortable enough using it in a public space/around his friends in 2021. I don't necessarily believe he's racist for using the word. But white folks jumping on his bandwagon with the "Everyone else says it" and "This is woke culture ruining America" battle cry look really fucking stupid in this situation.

    I believe that if his phone corrects “Nuggets” to the N word, he uses the N word heavily in his every day life.

    Leaning hard into the "I have black friends" defense. Solid move on his part.

    Again, I'm not all that surprised he uses the n-word. I also don't think it's realistic for black folks to cut off all white people who use the n-word completely. At the same time, I'm entirely too old to be picking out the good white people vs. the racist bad ones. I find it head-scratching how quickly a certain demographic of people rush to the "We should forgive him and believe his apology" defense in situations like this.

    Based on a quick Gram scan she seems pretty financially incentivized for his career to not be interrupted in any way.

    The thing nobody is talking about here is his cover of Cover Me Up is arguably as offensive as his drunken use of the n word

    Combs at least has seemed to try to distance himself from that song and no longer uses Confederate imagery in his act or videos. Maybe at the advice of his management. But people do grow and mature as they age and get exposed to people from different backgrounds and views and I hope that's the case with him. As the current face of mainstream country music it could go a long ways if he addressed that stuff head-on and firmly denounced it.

    Wallen continues doing dumb shit at a record pace and is also terrible, so fuck him.

    Post COVID, a bucket list concert is a Bill Graham show from any of my favorite EDM DJ’s. If you are in the Bay Area, let’s link up and have a beer! You don’t even know me!
