Fetty Wap Visits Music Choice

Ok, so Fetty Wap won’t be performing “Trap Queen” at Nancy Reagan’s funeral, but there is a petition to the White House roaming around about it.

Back in the 80s, President Ronald Reagan declared a “war on drugs” because illicit drugs like cocaine became a threat to national security. Incarceration rates skyrocketed in urban communities and Nancy would urge the youth to “just say no” to drugs, while conspiracy theories said the government provided the drugs.

Does that make her the biggest trap queen of all time?

The creators of this petition think so. Here’s why:

 

While her husband, Ronald Reagan, was linking up with Papi to flood the streets with narcotics, Nancy was on TV telling kids to “Say No To Drugs.” Her infamous “anti-drug” phrase encouraged strict laws on drug possession that led to a school-to-prison pipeline we’re still dealing with now. Blacks and Latinos went to jail in droves for possessing drugs her husband gave them. It was an incredible sleight of hand that would make any wannabe Trap Queen hide in shame for her inability to be as diabolical as Nancy.

So, to commemorate her contribution to the Trap, we’d love to have Fetty Wap perform “Trap Queen” at Nancy’s funeral. To usher her to a better place…where she’s probably cooking pies with her baby.” 

The internet has no chill! R.I.P. Nancy…
