On Monday, the 44-year-old rapper encouraged his fans to boycott the latest remake of “Roots” when he posted a video on Instagram.
“I’m sick of this shit,” he said in the video. “How the fuck are they going to put Roots on, on Memorial Day? They going to just keep beating that shit into our heads about how they did us, huh?”
“I mean I don’t understand America, they just want to keep showing the abuse we took hundreds and hundreds of years ago.”
“I ain’t watching that shit, and I advise you motherfuckers as real n*ggas like myself; fuck them television shows,” he continued.
“Let’s create our own shit based on today, how we live and how we inspire people today. Black is what’s real. Fuck that old shit.”
The History channel is running an eight-part mini-series remake of “Roots” this week. (RELATED: Snoop Dogg Got Really High At The White House)
