Rap legend Luther “Uncle Luke” Campbell has never been known for mincing words.
No matter how outspoken he may be on any given subject, Campbell can be counted on to the tell the unbiased truth as he sees it. So when recently asked his opinion on the differences in R&B and rap ghostwriters in a recent interview with WatchLOUD, Campbell asserted that everything in rap is different these days and a lot of it has to do with Kanye West changing the game in more ways than one:
“It used to be a difference, before Kanye West, rappers wasn’t wifin’ all these h–s. Rappers would be secure with they woman. You look at Ice Cube. He’s always been with is wife. You look at Will Smith. He’s always been with her. Hip-hop was different. We didn’t get caught up in the Hollywood thing, where, OK rappers are now marrying Hollywood girls, leaving one, going to the next one, leaving this one. We didn’t do that. I mean, we were like real secure. We wasn’t marrying girls or wifin’ girls for the Internet to blow up.”
Since dropping his classic debut, The College Dropout, in 2004, West has been in a number of high-profile relationships.
After ending his engagement with designer Alexis Phifer in 2008, West famously began a long term relationship with Amber Rose that came to an end in 2010. The “All Day” rapper then began dating long time friend Kim Kardashian in 2012, before marrying her in 2014.
