Recently, Spinabenz, Whoppa Wit Da Choppa, Yungeen Ace, and Fastmoney Goon’s song “Who I Smoke” has been going viral, as the song sampled Vanessa Carlton’s popular song “A Thousand Miles.” Since dropping, it was noted that many White people were upset at the usage of Carlton’s song for the track, which paints a vivid picture of what the artists will do once they see their opp. Now, Carlton has chimed with her thoughts on the song, revealing why she approved the sample.

Via Twitter, Carlton said, “To the white folks that have expressed anger/shock over my approval of A Thousand Miles’ usages in the Spinabenz, Whoppa Wit Da Choppa, Yungeen Ace, and Fastmoney Goon song ‘Who I Smoke,’ I invite you to ask yourself why you feel this way then read this.” From there, Carlton linked to an article from the McNair Scholars Research Journal, titled “Sharecropping Blackness: White Supremacy and the Hyper-Consumption of Black Popular Culture.”

Carlton then posted a clip from the film ‘Reservoir Dogs’ and said, “Popular songs accompanied by white violence or tales of white violence aren’t questioned. It’s considered visceral or cinematic. Here we have Stuck in the Middle of you playing while a guy gets his ear cut off.” Yungeen Ace has since responded to Carlton’s tweets, saying, “I got you 4eva,” in approval of her words.
