The Revenge of the White Nerdy Rapper: Charron Fights Back After Being Shunned From BET Cypher
After winning BET’s Freestyle Friday competition and then getting shunned from the Viacom-owned network’s annual cypher, Ottawa rapper Corey Charron took to the Internet to get his message out. And by “the Internet”, I mean Reddit. So that’s how he got some attention from us and underground Hip Hop blogs, which then snowballed into the mainstream media. Because of the buzz surrounding this incident, in two days, his own video addressing the issue has hit 28 000 views.
Unfortunately, he proves here that battle rappers get the chance to shine much more when it’s a cappella on KOTD or Smack URL than recorded over a beat. This kind of gives an argument to BET as per why he was left out.
My humble dos centavos. What’s your opinion?
