Mistah F.A.B. Explains Mentoring Kreayshawn and V-Nasty
Mistah F.A.B. talks about mentoring Kreayshawn and V-Nasty and why it's important for Bay Area artists should have each others' backs.
Mistah F.A.B. drew heavy fire from Internet critics over the summer when the Bay Area emcee defended V-Nasty for using the n-word. Now, in a recent interview with 2DopeBoyz and The Well Versed, F.A.B. explained his real relationship with the White Girl Mob member and her frequent collaborator Kreayshawn.
Fabby Davis, Jr. explained that he's established a mentor relationship with the White Girl Mob emcees over the past year. He said that Kreayshawn and V-Nasty weren't getting the kind of respect and representation that he felt they deserved, and that it was only right for a fellow Bay Area representative like himself to have their backs.
"Knowing the ideology, demographic and cultural upbringing [of Oakland], I realized that the rest of the world wouldn't understand them doing what it is that they do," he explained. "[I chose to mentor them] when everybody else backed down because it would be too controversial, too sketchy and too edgy for their promising careers. A lot of the people had the ability to be a spokesman and say ‘Yo, this is just what goes on in our area.’ But everybody else backed down and tried to leave them on the edge, I felt like that wasn’t right. I’ve been a person who has been misunderstood, I’ve been a person who has been on the pilgrimage of controversy…my whole career has been that. To be misunderstood is a touchy feeling. You look at these young girls and you see that there’s no one there to mentor them or allow them to [represent what goes on in their city]. I’m not going to leave them out there to dry out like that."
