Krayzie Bone Weighs In On AI Rappers In Music

Media Take Out Staff |

FN Meka was the first rapper to be signed by a record label. Krayzie Bone thinks AI rappers will make real rappers redundant in the future.

“First thing I said was damn, I wish I would’ve thought of this first. I think it could be genius. I think they got something. I think they might be going somewhere with this,” he told TMZ.

“I will tell rappers one thing – you better watch out. They’re trying to take your jobs,” he said. “Anything you’re doing fresh is good as long as it’s positive and ain’t no negativity that could be something new. You might start a trend, and you might see a couple more might pop up and get signed. You never know.”

Social media didn’t think it was a good idea and after the backlash, Capitol Records announced it had dropped the rapper.

“CMG has severed ties with the FN Meka project, effective immediately,” the label noted in a statement. “We offer our deepest apologies to the Black community for our insensitivity in signing this project without asking enough questions about equity and the creative process behind it. We thank those who have reached out to us with constructive feedback in the past couple of days-your input was invaluable as we came to the decision to end our association with the project.”
