Black culture soldiers are standing at the ready, keeping guard against the infamous culture vultures who try to breach the bridge and sneak back in to pillage the treasure chest and rape the rap genre.

And guess who the culture soldiers see coming this way?

Miley Cyrus, the former Nickelodeon star who transformed into a hip hop star before forsaking it, spitting on it and abandoning it for country music, is apparently back just two years later putting together a hip-hop-inspired album — and quoting supreme queen Cardi B at that.

A post shared by Miley Cyrus (@mileycyrus)

When she was asked what fans can expect from her new album, Cyrus boldly told Vanity Fair in February, “There’s psychedelic elements, there’s pop elements, there’s more hip-hop-leaning records.”

That takes incredible audacity and intestinal fortitude to return to a genre that she so publicly tossed into the disposal.

Even mainstream magazine Complex trashed her thoroughly, saying: “While we don’t expect her to go full cultural appropriator — whether she wants to admit or not — like she did with 2013’s Bangerz, it’s still appalling to hear her confidently talk about incorporating elements of a genre that she thoroughly dismissed.”

Ebro Darden, one of the most renowned radio hosts in the country, has long been outspoken about White people and other non-Blacks exploiting hip hop culture for their own self-aggrandizement.

On the below photo, Cyrus parrots Cardi B when she says she “came thru drippin’.”

“GTFOH,” Ebro wrote next to a trio of laughing emojis.

Ebro then reminded everybody of how Cyrus once swore away from hip-hop: “That’s what pushed me out of the hip-hop scene a little. It was too much ‘Lamborghini, got my Rolex, got a girl on my cock.’ I am so not that.”

Those comments were made in 2017 and just two years later, Miley is back making hip hop music again.

Below is a sampling of the irate responses from Black Twitter and others about a woman who blatantly abused hip hop, only to return to it to make more money and rise back to the top of pop culture:
